cannabis-concentrates

Concentrates let you experience cannabis in a multitude of ways; they come in a variety of textures and flavors and can be consumed using several different methods. This is also where you may have heard the term dab or dabbing from. This is slang for smoking vaporized cannabis concentrates.

Flower is still the most popular type of cannabis, but times are changing, and concentrates may become the most purchased marijuana product within the next few years.

The most significant benefit of cannabis extracts comes from their incredibly high THC content and rapid onset time as compared to consuming flower. If you’re looking for the same experience with much less material, cannabis concentrates are a great place to start.

What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates are created by extracting the cannabis flower by using water, ice, heat, pressure or a foreign solvent to strip the plant material of cannabinoids. Concentrates offer much higher levels of cannabinoids such as THC, CBD, CBG, THCA and a wide variety of terpenes that assist with flavor and effects as in comparison to flower.

The processes for creating cannabis concentrates vary widely and is considered to be an art form. The main objective when creating concentrates is to separate and isolate the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material to create a more refined product.

Who Can Buy Cannabis Concentrates?

Thinking about Concentrates?

The first question to ask yourself before buying cannabis concentrates is what type of solvent was used to create the extract? Depending on the type of extract, the concentrate will have more terpenes and be more flavorful.

Next, how would you like to consume them? If you wish to vaporize cannabis concentrates on your dab rig, it might be best to go with wax or shatter. Looking to add more flavor to a sesh, try adding live resin to a bowl or joint. Alternatively, you can even buy a pre-filled vape pen for maximum convenience!

How to Consume Cannabis Concentrates

There are many ways to consume cannabis concentrates, so let figure out which way is best for you! Here are just a few of the most common ways people like to consume cannabis concentrates:

  • Add them to flower –Cannabis concentrates offer such high cannabinoid levels, that adding them to a bowl or joint is a great way to give them that extra punch!
  • Vaporize cannabis concentrates – Concentrates can be vaporized with a dab rig or in a pen. If you choose a vape pen, you can buy pre-filled cartridges or fill your own with your favorite concentrates.
  • Make edibles – Just like with typical cannabis flower, you can cook with concentrates. Use a smaller amount of concentrates than you would for flower.

No matter how you choose to enjoy your cannabis concentrates, it’s essential to do so responsibly. The THC content is much higher in extracts than it is in standard flower, and some people do not realize just how big the difference can be. With that in mind, we always recommend that people start low and slow.
