Do You Dab?
What are concentrates, you ask? Well, simply put they are cannabis extracts: any oil that concentrates the plant’s chemical compounds like THC and CBD extracted using BHO (butane hash oil), CO2 oil, or similar hydrocarbon extracts. Basically they’re highly potent, viscous weed, named different things based on their physical properties that are a result of their extraction processes. You can put these concentrates in vapes, use pre-filled cartridges on a 510 battery or “dab” them onto a heated nail.
Shatter is the purest and cleanest, looking like glassy maple syrup or sap and is frequently described as a pull-and-snap” concentrate. It involves a second extraction process that removes fats, lipids and waxes, which can result in over 80% THC! Wax is the next purest, often called “budder” or “crumble” depending on its consistency (budder being the softer gooey form, crumble having a brittle texture) and this is usually about 70% THC. Oil tends to be the least refined of the three; it’s a gooey, sticky liquid that can be hard to handle. This form also known as honey oil or butane hash oil – can retain a full flavor profile but its THC levels are usually less consistent.
You can use an essential oil vaporizer where you can put budder, crumble, wax, shatter or oil directly on the coils of the ceramic atomizer, completely controlling the dosage, and I use pre-filled cartridges on my 510 thread battery vape. Kurvana and Ganja Gold are KILLING IT in the cartridge department right now, and SOL Selects oil is pretty much the only thing I’ll dab with because it’s so clean and solvent-free.
