Malana Cream and Kerala Gold are the two quality names among an Indian stoner or a hash hunter. While the latter is hard to find but the former one is easily available in one of the beautiful Himachali villages name ‘Malana’.

Malana or also known as one of the mysterious villages In India is home to one of the most popular ‘Charas’ grown in India i.e. The “Malana Cream”.

Do you know, this Charas / Hashish is also very popular in Amsterdam cannabis menus. The quality of this Hashish is so pure that even in Delhi and other parts of India, Hashish dealers claim their stuff as Malana stuff to get a higher price.

Cannabis is kind of a religion for Malana locals. Unlike other Himachali villages where the villagers grow vegetables, Malana only grows one plant i.e. the famous Malana Cannabis. You can see small cannabis plants everywhere. Plus the village is also known for its large stretch of cannabis fields grown near the village. So the livelihood of these villagers basically depends on the cannabis farming and the money they get after selling their stuff.

A few years back, no one knew about this small little hamlet in Himachal. But with the emergence of media and also due to this Malana cream, the village has become a popular tourist destination among stoners all around the globe.

Important Facts On Malana Cannabis / Cream

Torn between a widespread tradition and an internationally imposed prohibition, thousands of villages scattered on the Indian #Himalayas survive on the production of charas, hashish produced in #India. In India, the use of cannabis dates back to the sacred Vedas texts and has been a part of religious rituals and festivities for millennia. Cannabis indica, a native strain from which charas is produced, grows wild in many parts of the Himalayas, making it almost impossible for authorities to stem production and track it back to the farmers, who have started to grow their fields ever higher to escape controls. Although widespread, there are no official figures for India’s charas cannabis cultivation as no survey has ever been conducted. Until the late 1980s, cannabis and opium were legal in India, sold in government-run shops and traded by the British East India Company. To comply with the global War on Drugs, in 1985, India passed the controversial NDPS – narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances – Act, which criminalised cannabis but failed to curb production and trafficking, which has boomed, reflecting increased prices on the international market. They live a humble life, far away from modernity, in extreme conditions and with no alternative livelihoods. They consider cannabis a gift from God. Despite a change of course internationally, the debate on legalisation in India is still at an embryonic stage… 📷@ #shimla_travelogue #shimla #himachalpradesh #malanacream #storiesofindia #indiaclicks #lonelyplanetindia #_soi #cannabis #desi_diaries #oldman #smoking #himalayas #streetphotographyindia #villagelife #jana #manali #indiapictures #portrait #portraitphotography #portraitpage #portraitmood #portrait_perfection #portrait_shots #portrait_vision #Indianportraits #natgeotravelindia #weed

THC Content

THC stands for Tetrahydrocannabinol and is the primary ingredient in Cannabis or Marijuana which produces euphoric effects if taken orally or smoked. The THC content basically administers the quality of the cream and how high will you get after injecting it in your system. According to studies, it was found that Malana cream has a THC content of 30 – 40% which is comparatively very high. As a normal Marijuana has a THC content of only 05 – 08%.

Oil Content

Apart from THC content, Malana Marijuana is also known for its good oil content. The quality of a cannabis is also decided on the percentage of the oil the stuff has. And it is said that this charas has one of the highest oil content among all other stuffs, making it in the menu list of many Amsterdam Cannabis Cafes.

High Type

Marijuana is known to make people high and that is the reason a lot of stoners and hash lovers visit Malana and Kasol to get the taste of this famous Hashish. But there is a small difference between normal hashish and a Malana charas.

The normal cream will make you lazy and dumb. After smoking the regular joints you will just find a corner, sit there and do nothing. Whereas with Malana Hashish, you become more happy and energetic. You will be able to do your work and anything that you want.
