Abstract

Abstract Hashish samples from Morocco, Lebanon, Iran, India, Pakistan, Afghanistan have been stored either in darkness or in daylight at 18–22°C and analysed every 20–30 days for a period of 22 months. Each of the samples was analysed by gas-chromatography with α-cholestane as the internal standard. As a result of this study we have observed distinctive ageing processes due to the physical and chemical peculiarity of samples of different geographic origin. The information obtained from this work may have a forensic application in the illicit traffic of hashish.
