What is Marijuana Concentrates?
Concentrates, generally, are manufactured by extracting THC, most commonly by using a solvent such as butane. The end product is a potent oil often referred to as wax, honey, shatter, budder, crumble or butane hash oil (BHO). The effects of these concentrates are more psychologically and physically intense than traditional marijuana buds.
Types of Marijuana Concentrates
When dabbing, it’s important to remember that Marijuana concentrates are incredibly potent, which is why they’re generally consumed by more experienced users.
The Varieties of Cannabis Concerntrate include : Shatter , Wax , Resin , Live Resin , Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) , Hash , Kief , Bubble Hash , Crumble , CO2 Oil
Butane Hash Oil (BHO)
Butane hash oil (BHO) made from marijuana is not a new thing. This is a marijuana extract that’s heated with a butane torch until all the plant matter is burnt away, leaving a sticky, wax-like resin that contains a high concentration of THC. Smoking this form of the drug produces a more intense high.
Wax is a marijuana concentrate that has become increasingly popular. And is referred to as weed wax, dabbing, dabs or butane hash oil (BHO).
Marijuana wax looks like it sounds: A sticky, syrup-like substance that’s robust enough to hold its form on a flat surface after it’s cooled. It is typically tinted yellow and may be kept on wax paper (right after it’s been made) or in small containers.
The Marijuana concentrate known as Shatter is sometimes compared to honey in its color as well. The level of transparency and richness of color vary based on certain factors, such as the amount of moisture and heat used during the process. Also, the liquidity of the product increases as the percentage of terpenes
CO2 oil has a lower price point than distillate and can carry a wider range of cannabinoids and natural flavor. The amber oil it produces can be vaporized in a variety of ways, one of the most popular being portable vaporizer pens containing cartridges containing CO2 oil.
Kief is made up of the crystal-like formations that form on the tip of the resin glands. The resin glands are part of what’s known as trichomes. Kief is commonly used to make hash, or you can collect kief in a grinder and sprinkle it onto ground cannabis for more potent consumption.
Hashish, or hash, is a made from Marijuana Plants. Hashish is cannabis resin. It is consumed by smoking a small piece, typically in a pipe, bong, vaporizer or joint, or via oral ingestion
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) can be orally administered or applied directly to the skin. Many other businesses now sell their own renditions of Rick Simpson Oil, some of which are high in THC while others contain only non-psychoactive compounds like CBD.
Live resin is a type of Marijuana concentrate that is manufactured using a technique that takes freshly harvested cannabis and freezes it to subcritical temperatures prior to and throughout the extraction process.
