The cannibis plant, the same plant used to make marijuana,
grows mostly in Northern India—where much of the charas manufacturing takes place.

For thousands of years charas has been used in India for religious and medicinal purposes. The Drug was once just as much part of every day life as chai or chapatis.[ref] http://www.water-bongs-glass-pipes.com/charas/tp/ib/i-202/ [/ref]

Despite the current illegality of charas, many still use it today.

How is Charas Made?

The long and tedious process of making charas is accomplished by rubbing your hands through the cannibis flowers.
Charas resin sticks to the palms of those trying to isolate the drug. After a long day of harvesting charas, you will end up with 8 or 9 grams.
When you work quickly to get charas from the plant, the drug is a lower quality. In order to get the desired cream, you must work very slowly and carefully.[ref] http://www.water-bongs-glass-pipes.com/charas/tp/ib/i-202/ [/ref]
