Morocco firing up European hash market
The country that perfected the art of making the cannabis derivative is producing more than ever – and it’s getting better

Smoking hash may be an old person thing to do. And it is. But it’s also a classic, and the country that perfected the art of making the cannabis derivative is going stronger than ever.
According to a new report, Morocco is still producing tons of hash, most of it for the European market. And it’s getting better.
“Resin potency has shown a continuous increase since 2009,” says the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction in its European Drug Report 2019. “Drivers of this increasing average potency in resin likely include the introduction of high-potency plants and new production techniques in Morocco, and, to a lesser extent, the greater use within Europe of resin extraction techniques that provide higher potency products.”
