Buy weed Concentrate Online

Weed Concentrate come in many forms and include the most desirable parts of something. For example, orange juice concentrate has the smell and taste of the orange fruit, but without the excess fluid, peel or pulp. The same is true for the cannabis plant: the aromas, flavors, and other desirable substances can be retained while removing the leaves, stems, and other unwanted materials.

Weed concentrate Extracts are a specific type of concentrate that use solvents to draw out the desired substances of a plant, seed or fruit. For example, vanilla extract is produced by using alcohol as a solvent to pull out the desired flavor component, vanillin, from vanilla bean pods.

Is there a difference between a concentrate and an extract?

All extracts are concentrates, but not all concentrates are extracts. While those terms are used interchangeably, the primary difference between a concentrate and an extract is how trichomes are collected. Extracts are a type of concentrate created using solvents (alcohol, carbon dioxide, etc.) that essentially wash the trichomes off the cannabis plant. Concentrates made without the use of solvents are produced using mechanical or physical means to remove and gather trichomes.

Butane Hash Oil (BHO), Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) and CO2-extracted cannabis wax are examples of extracts; each of these comes in varying textures such as shatter, badder, budder, and crumble. Different extracts and the varying textures may yield different experiences from one product to another.

How To Use Marijuana Concentrates

Now that we’ve discussed what cannabis concentrates are and how they are made, let’s talk about how to use the different kinds!

Vaporizer

All of the forms currently available in Ohio’s medical marijuana program can be vaporized, depending on the vaporizer type that you own. While some vaporizers are only made for flower use, there are many vaporizer brands out there that have the ability to handle concentrated waxes and oils! Some vaporizers are even made specifically for concentrated oils, such as the G Pen.

To use concentrates in a vaporizer that handles both flower and concentrates, it is usually easiest to use ground cannabis flower as a base layer, and then applying the concentrate on top. From there, you can use your vaporizer just like you would with flower, but with that extra punch from the concentrates included.

Oil Rig

This term may be brand new to patients that are just getting into concentrated cannabis products. An oil rig, in all technicality, works the same way as a water-pipe (or bong) would. Instead of a bowl head where the ground cannabis is placed, an oil rig has a quartz or titanium “nail” that looks like a little dish. The nail is heated, often using a blow torch, and the concentrate is then placed in the dish to vaporize and be inhaled.

What are the health effects of concentrates?

There are adverse effects associated with marijuana use in any form,3 though additional research is needed to understand how the use of concentrate may differ from smoking dried marijuana buds. Marijuana concentrates have very high levels of THC. Solvent-based products tend to be especially potent, with THC levels documented at an average of about 54-69% and reported to exceed 80%, while non-solvent based extraction methods produce average THC levels between 39-60%.4 In comparison, the THC content in marijuana plant material, which is often used in marijuana cigarettes, is lower—with samples seized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency averaging just over 15%.5 Not only do concentrates have high levels of THC, but dabbers inhale the entire amount all at once—in a single breath.
