Cannabis Concentrates

Concentrates?

 Concentrates are cannabis-derived extracts that contain concentrated amounts of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and a multiplicity of other cannabinoids and terpenes 

Wax

The most well-known type of concentrate is wax. This is made by blasting plant material with a solvent using a closed-loop extraction system. The resulting slurry is heated at low temperatures and whipped vigorously to remove all residual solvent. Because the product is whipped by hand, it gains airy peaks that are similar to whipped topping. 

Shatter

 Shatter is made by blasting plant material with a solvent using a closed-loop system. The product is collected on parchment paper and placed in a vacuum oven for solvent purging. After "burping" the slurry (this helps release as much solvent as possible) a few times the shatter starts to take shape and slowly spreads across the paper. 

Oil

This fluid extraction is created with large amounts of pressure and carbon dioxide and is seen as an incredibly effective method to separate plant material to produce an oil. CO2 extraction is gaining popularity in commercial extraction operations due to the fact that the equipment used is able to finely tune desired results and end products.

 

Dabbing Concentrates

Dabbing is the method that's enjoyed by the majority of concentrate lovers.   Low-temp dabbing is optimal for flavor and consumption of cannabinoid profiles, which is why this is one of the best ways to enjoy a dab.
