5 interesting facts about cannabis concentrates:
There are different forms of cannabis concentrates and they are consumed in different ways as well. Some require vaping, which is more gentle on your lungs than the traditional bong, and others you add into your joint. None of the ways to consume are quite better than another, but the results are different depending on how you use them.
Shatter is the purest concentrate on the market. It is produced by using a solvent to extract THC from the flowers. Shatter has a gold color to it with a texture of a piece of hard candy. It is very powerful and should not be consumed by a new cannabis user but rather an experienced one knowing the importance of micro-dosing.
Sugar Wax is made through the same procedure as shatter, but its texture is like its name, sticky, shiny and crumbly. It’s very potent but very enjoyable for cannabis users to consume. It provides a very intense high.
Tinctures come in a dropper and are very common among people who use CBD. Tinctures are fast-acting and incredibly versatile as they can be used in cooking, baking, smoothies, and even making your own cannabis gummies. Tinctures are awesome for the consumer who doesn’t like to smoke anything.
A yellow-like substance, Budder is a mix between shatter and wax. Again, produced with the same butane hash oil extraction but ending with fewer cannabinoids and more sense in terpenes.
Hash Oils are not consumed by the average cannabis user. They are used for those with a high THC tolerance or someone who wants to get very high. They are very powerful.
Cannabis concentrates are growing so much, as more and more people experiment but want to avoid smoking.
Make sure you’re micro-dosing and keep in mind that it could be more than an hour before the effects take effect.
