Cannabis Concentrates

What are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates are products made from the cannabis plant that have been processed to remove the plant’s essential oils, resins, and other active compounds, such as terpenes and flavonoids. These products are usually much higher in potency than cannabis flower and can be used to create a more intense experience when consuming cannabis. Cannabis concentrates come in a variety of forms, including oils, wax, shatter, live resin, and distillates. The process of creating cannabis concentrates is complex and requires specialized equipment such as a vacuum oven, solvent extractors, and CO2 extraction machines. To produce cannabis oil, the plant material is heated and pressurized to extract the essential oils and other active compounds. To create wax, shatter, or live resin, the extracted oils are further processed using solvents such as butane, propane, and hexane. The distillate, on the other hand, is made by distilling the extracted oils, which results in a pure product that is almost entirely THC or CBD. Cannabis concentrates can be used in a variety of ways, depending on the form and potency of the concentrate. Oils can be smoked using a dab rig, vaporizer, or added to edibles. Wax and shatter can be smoked using a dab rig or a special vaporizer, while live resin is typically used in dab rigs due to its high levels of terpenes. Distillates, on the other hand, can be used to make edibles, topicals, and tinctures. Cannabis concentrates are becoming increasingly popular as more people are looking for a more intense experience when consuming cannabis. However, these products can be dangerous if not used properly, as they often contain high levels of THC and can be very potent. It is important to use caution when using cannabis concentrates, and to ensure that you are buying them from a reputable source.
