Red Seal

72 posts in this topic

in the last couple of days my mind has turned to thinking about Red Seal, then i saw a post mentioning it too so i thought i'd start a thread / conversation 

 

used to get  it in the early 90's perfect for that post rave come down, lovely soft squishy heavy hitting, bits of red plastic in there, you could roll it into a thin snake and lay it on top of the tobacco when it was windy, pinch out little bits if you didn't have a lighter 

used to love the effect of that stuff nice and couch locky heavy stone

there was also the next grade up allegedly gold seal never got any of that but it was supposed o be even better and softer 

 

don't really buy anything anymore but wondered if it was still around 

where did it come from ?

what strain would it have been ?

 

don't really remember too much about tastes or flavours just that is was  nice nice hash / smoke

Gold seal.....my god Im teenager again.....All my clothes have blim burns on them from the rocks falling out my portly rolled spliff its early 90's and I go to outdoor raves with dreads in my hair lol lol

 

I would have said that most of it came from morocco etc we cant ask mr nice anymore :sadwalk:....The colour of 'seals' was the different grades they would make as I understood it ???

Do remember it well and in the same context, early/midday hours after a good night. In honesty I reckon the quality wasn’t all that, it was actually pretty poor but the memory of it is enhanced by everything else that went with it, largely being young;) There was another hash about the same sort of period, it was very airy, would fluff up with heat and came in thick chunks because of its lack of density you’d think you’d got a good deal. Light in colour, sandy texture Morrocan origin I reckon, light smoke but quite uppy.

 

Smirking green on a come down is a unique pleasure, one I’ve not experienced for a very long time, not sure how I’d now feel doing taking something now but would like to experience the come down smirk again:)

Yes mate, was a type of slate think we called it dried out slate was rock hard until you heated it and was on the weaker side, not heavily monging like the red seal or sticky black. Found it really conducive to those never ending bullshit conversations that seemed so profound at the time;)

 

Im the same when in Dam or now Barcelona;) Kadinsky do a lovely hash called trans Himalayan iirc, decent price great hash.

oh yes I remember these too, I used to smoke nothing but hash, back in the day it was all you could get (changed days now,can hardly find decent hash these days eh)

I still get a nice bit of blonde morrocan polm or Menali every once in a while, but my favourite was Nepalese I smoked in the Dam, early nineties.

it smelled of sweet pine and mashed me up good style. 

 

heres some more reading on red seal, it was Pakistani/ afghan in origin by the way, not Morrocan

yeah , I never thought I would get used to weed as I was all hash ...the 'Red Seal' was like plenty of other things , it started off good then they used to chop it with all kinds of shit , in general the black Moroccan was better ,,, The best one I ever had was 'Silver Seal' from around 1986 ... I remember eating some , only a few joints worth thinking it would do fuck all , hours late I was pleasantly cabbaged

We did some hot knives recently just for shits and giggles....broke a milk bottle (heated on the gas and pushed off) and put a wet cloth over the top.

 

We made moon rocks (we used really nice hash instead of kief and BHO to coat the weed and make the hash stick).

 

Watching my mates face as he blew out a cloud of smoke with the 'f@ck me bro'  expression was priceless.

 

Im so boring these days I just roll spliffs and only use the nail bong for wax (when i can get it)

 

I eat a fair bit as well due to me cancer.

Red seal, gold, seal... Ah yes!! Lovely stuff - I think it was pretty strong, though I didn't really see the difference between the grades. I found a wee chunk of black (no seal to say) in Paris a few years back - gave me a whitey! lol  I also found a nice big chunk of Moroccan in Marseille a year or so later - never got a chance to try that, it was on my way to the airport!

 

But the taste of that red/gold seal... Lovely!! very very nice memories, some of which are quite patchy!! :D

Anyone near a port will understand this......we used to get 'sea gear' as we called it

 

The shitest, nastiest gear ever......but when we were kids the trawler guys used to give it us for free.

 

We would get kilo's of the shit....cut right into the middle to see if anything was still worth smoking.....lucky if we got a teenth out of it. 

 

mmmmm thinking about it maybe this is why i have cancer now....that and the nineties early 00's are MIA from my brain lol lol

The red seals of the 70's generally came from Pakistan. The Hindu Kush region. All Hashish from the sub continent are dark brown or black. Afghani was generally hard and a little harsh but tasty nonetheless. Nepalese is wonderful as is the Hash from the Parvati Valley in India. I spent a month in Manali back in the 90's and the cream there was beyond wonderful. If you want a bit of light reading on all the Hashish that is produced then try and find The Great Books of Hashish which is totally enthralling read with Hash Porn pictures to boot
