Concentrates are an increasingly popular choice for today’s cannabis consumers. Concentrates are concentrated forms of cannabis, containing a higher concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes than traditional flower. But, before you dive into the world of concentrates, there are a few things you should know.
First, you should understand the different types of concentrates available. Some of the most popular options include shatter, crumble, wax, and live resin. Shatter is harder than glass and tends to be brittle, wax has a softer, wax-like consistency, crumble is dry and crumbly, and live resin is a type of concentrate made using frozen flower.
You also need to know the different methods of extraction used to create concentrates. Solvent and non-solvent extraction are the two main methods. Solvent extraction involves using solvents such as butane, propane, and CO2 to extract the desired compounds from the plant material, while non-solvent extraction involves using physical pressure to separate the compounds. It’s important to understand the different methods as this can affect the flavor and potency of the concentrate.
Finally, you should be aware of the potential risks associated with concentrates. Since concentrates have a higher concentration of cannabinoids, they can be more potent than flower, so it’s important to consume them responsibly. Additionally, if concentrates are not made properly, they may contain residual solvents from the extraction process, which can be dangerous if inhaled.
