What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

November 19, 2021

Cannabis concentrates are one of the most popular forms of cannabis. Cannabis concentrates come in many different types, such as shatter, wax, and oil. Cannabis concentrates can be used to create edibles or mixed into drinks. Cannabis concentrate users often enjoy these products because they provide a stronger experience than smoking weed alone. If you're interested in learning more about Cannabis Concentrates, then you should read this blog post.

How Are Concentrates Made?

Cannabis concentrates are made through a process of extracting cannabinoids and other desired phytochemicals from the cannabis plant. Cannabis is an annual that grows with the seasons, so the best time to collect it for its flowers or buds is in late fall just before harvesting when it's harvested. Cannabis growers tend to harvest their plants every two weeks during the flower/bud cycle which means they're continuously harvesting at least twice a month & collecting ripe resinous trichomes each time - this results in numerous harvests per year! So how do they extract all these precious cannabinoids? Cannabis extraction is performed using methods such as heating, evaporation, ice water filtration butane hash oil (BHO) has become extremely popular and is one of the most well-known. Cannabis has concentrated since its inception. Cannabis extraction processes create different end products that can be used to make a range of cannabis-infused products, such as shatter and budder for dabbing; hash oil (honey oil) & tinctures for oral ingestion; infused cooking oils and butter; Cannabis Topicals like salves, balms, and lotions made with extracts or concentrate added directly into them. Cannabis extract manufacturers use many methods such as CO₂, ice water filtration, or chemical solvents to produce these concentrated forms of THC - all have their pros/cons depending on what you're going for in your final product!

Live Concentrates Vs. Cured Concentrates

One of the most important factors to consider when it comes down to how a concentrate is going to be processed and what it'll actually achieve, but also one with many different subtleties. For example, there are "cured" concentrates that have undergone their curing process while live ones do not--but this isn't always true for every type.

If you’re looking to smoke the most potent and flavorful weed possible, but don't have a lot of money on hand- look no further than concentrate. Cured cannabis flower is good for novice smokers who want an easy introduction into this often confusing industry; however, it tends also to remove some terpenes that make flavors more pronounced in order to create variety within their product line up or due to lack thereof when pressing them out at home. For those seeking top-tier potency without having to spend too much time/money curing batches prior then definitely consider purchasing already refined extracts instead!

Live concentrates are made with the plant material that has been frozen as soon as it was harvested. This means the products skip the curing process, ensuring an elevated flavor experience and premium price point compared to other types of extracts.

How Are Cannabis Concentrates Consumed?

Cannabis concentrates are often used in vape pens. Cannabis wax is a highly concentrated form of cannabis that is consumed using special vaporizers or dab rigs. Cannabis oil, on the other hand, can be eaten and drunk to provide medical benefits without any psychoactive effects.

There are no regulations regarding when someone can smoke cannabis concentrates so you should check with your state laws before smoking any substance containing THC if it's not prescribed by a doctor for medicinal purposes. In general, though, people will typically only use vaping pens after dinner while socializing at night since they have an effect similar to alcohol which would impair their ability to drive home. Cannabis concentrates are also used in some e-cigarettes, just like CBD oil cartridges which don't contain any THC at all.

There are many different ways to consume concentrates, which is why they attract so much attention. Whether you want a quick and easy way to get high or prefer something more complex, there’s bound to be a product that suits your needs.
