Cannabis concentrates have become increasingly popular ever since cannabis has achieved more widespread legalization. Customers have become more interested in their amazing benefits and a range of brands have risen to meet that interest. But are concentrates really worth all the excitement? At The Farmacy SB, we believe they are— and we’re here to tell you exactly why.
Here’s everything you need to know about cannabis concentrates, how they’re made, how to enjoy them, and our favorite cannabis concentrate brand on the market— F/ELD.
What are Cannabis Concentrates and How Are They Made?
The chemical compounds that give cannabis its benefits are mainly found in specific parts of the plant. So what if you could hone in on those compounds and extract them from the cannabis in their most potent form? That’s what cannabis concentrates are all about.
Concentrates are created by separating the trichomes from the rest of the cannabis plant. What are trichomes? They’re the resin glands found in each plant where the majority of cannabis’ most potent elements are found— its cannabinoids, terpenes, and more. By removing the nonessential elements of the plant, you’re left with a highly concentrated serving of everything that makes cannabis great without anything nonessential.
Concentrates can be extracted and produced via a range of methods, from dry sifting the plant to using water-based or other types of solvents. Sometimes, heat and pressure are applied to create a product known as cannabis rosin.
How to Use Cannabis Concentrates
There are lots of ways to enjoy cannabis concentrates, adding the benefit of variety to your cannabis experience. They can be made into tinctures, which are cannabis-infused liquids that are dropped under the tongue and take effect in around half an hour, or capsules, which are ingested orally and take around two hours to take effect.
One of our customers’ favorite ways to enjoy concentrates is by vaping. They use cartridges filled with cannabis oil and powered by batteries to deliver the perfect draw in a convenient, easy to transport package.
Other forms of cannabis extract include hash, which can be vaporized or smoked, and shatter, wax, or dabbable oil— all usually quite potent and high in THC.
Cannabis Concentrate Benefits
So, what makes cannabis concentrates worth considering? Here are some of the best benefits of concentrates as a cannabis consumption method.
Cannabis concentrates allow for very precise dosing abilities, as opposed to self-rolled joints from cannabis flower where exact dosing may be more difficult.
When it comes to dosage, concentrates are one of the most, well, concentrated forms of cannabis available. They’re highly potent and deliver THC or CBD (or both) in a fast-acting, powerful package that’s easy to consume.
Cannabis concentrates and extracts give you options for consuming cannabis in a less obvious way, allowing for more discrete sessions than joints or blunts would allow.
Many customers prefer to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without the smoke, and cannabis concentrates allow you to do just that. Depending on the product, they can be ingested orally via tinctures or capsules or vaporized, eliminating smoke from the equation altogether.
