is Moroccan resin which is compressed into bars in a
heated press. Until the mid 1980s most Moroccan was
flat-pressed 'slate'. The bars are now more tightly
compressed, with a typical THC content of 3-7%.
foul smelling batch of soap-bar resin was found to contain
6% THC and a typical Moroccan cannabinoid distribution.
However the surfaces of the blocks were discoloured,
with yellow deposits and a dull surface, and a stong
smell of diesel, presumably from importation within
a fuel tank.
other resins appear in similar shapes. "Formula" can
include genuine resin heated up and mixed with other
substances, or resinous substances manufactured from
imported hash or grass oil. A batch of Formula was found
to contain between 0.5% and 1% THC, it was brittle in
texture with shards shearing from the block when cut
a constituent of cloves, is commonly found in Asian
resin ('black'), which would enhance the odour of poor
quality hashish. It has been reported in 'soap', although
there have been a few occasions where the origin of
resin has been misidentified, and presumably such errors
occur in the FSS database.
the FSS database only lists cannabinoids and other controlled
drugs - most cannabis resin is identified only by microscopy
and TLC (thin layer chromatography plates), rather than
a confirmatory spectrographic analysis, which would
be performed only where matching of cannabinoid profiles
is attempted in an effort to link different seizures.
