Cannabis Concentrates

The Different Types of Cannabis Concentrates

Cannabis, marijuana concentrates, or cannabis extract has a unique and potent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (Cannabidiol) component. Being produced with wildly varying THC levels, researchers have found that the THC in cannabis concentrates ranges between 40-80%. These mouthwatering THC levels make cannabis concentrates at least four times more potent and rich in THC than their top-shelf cannabis counterpart, which comes with an average of 20% THC.

Types of Marijuana Concentrates 

  • Wax

Wax is a cannabis concentrate that looks almost exactly like honey. Wax as a cannabis or marijuana concentrate is very rich in high levels of THC and other cannabinoids, which must be held and treated with care.  

  • Badder

Widely regarded as the cleanest and most sought-after cannabis concentrate, the badder gets its name from its resemblance with the regular butter. This cannabis concentrate is unique and potent, with a mouthwatering THC that averages 90-99%. Making it part of the reason why this concentrate is so expensive. 

  • Butane Hash Oil

Butane hashish oil or BHO emanates from butane and acts as a solvent used to extract all the juice and terpenes in cannabis. While this process is not complicated or dangerous, it makes it a popular option for its users because of its high levels of THC. It is worth noting that; the BHO is also used to produce concentrates like nug run, hash, badder, shatter, and more.

  • Shatter

Shatter is a marijuana concentrate extracted from BHO (Butane Hash Oil) and PHO (Propane Hash Oil) and comes with high levels of THC and CBD. With over 80% cannabinoids, the shatter is adored for its extreme purity and can not be consumed easily because of its high evaporation point.

  • Resin

Resins do not contain any solvent residue, and that is why most medical marijuana patients prefer them. It also has a high level of terpenes. Resin is being manipulated into any texture since its existence relies solely on pressure and heat. 

  • Crumble

Crumble is the fragile variety of badder. As opposed to badder, crumble emanates from low heat and is known to evaporate slowly. This process allows crumbling to retain full flavor.

  • Dabs (dabbing)

Dabs is a concentrated dose of cannabis produced by extracting THC and other cannabinoids. All of this is achieved by using a solvent like butane or carbon dioxide, which will result in sticky oils. With that in mind, other marijuana concentrates include: 

  • Black Glass 
  • Butane Honey Oil (BHO)
  • Ear wax 
  • Honey oil
  • Nug Run 

How Concentrates Are Used

While rolling a joint is the most used method of consuming cannabis, dabbing tools and other mediums are used to consume cannabis concentrates. It should be worth noting that infusing foods and drinks with marijuana concentrates is another popular method of consumption. Unlike concentrates, smoking cigarettes, for instance, leave behind small traces of odor or smell.  

Concentrates require heat as well as a vaporizer or an e-cigarette before easy consumption. Vaping produces vapors capable of giving a high like no other to its users. Having said that, it is worth noting that ingesting marijuana concentrates with the aid of a vaporizer or an e-cigarette is tagged as vaping or dabbing. 

Marijuana Concentrates and its Effects 

Unlike raw cannabis, the concentrated nature of cannabis concentrates is responsible for their uniqueness and potency. Giving it a high feeling is far more robust than that which is achieved from smoking cannabis. Although very little is known about cannabis concentrates, the long-term effects associated with the use of concentrates are still to be discovered.
