WHAT ARE CONCENTRATES
Similar to that orange juice concentrate in the back of your freezer, cannabis concentrates are the product of distilling down the most desirable parts of the plant. They contain all the cannabinoids and terpenes of cannabis flowers and none of the excess plant material. Ounce for ounce, marijuana concentrates have a far greater proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes than raw cannabis flowers.
Different Types of Concentrates
Shatter is a cannabis extract that is solid and translucent in appearance, as if you could shatter it like glass. It achieves its glass-like appearance through specific processing techniques involving solvents like butane or other hydrocarbons. Concentrating essential compounds like THC and CBD, shatter offers the benefits of cannabis in a highly concentrated, compact form that is popularly dabbed or vaporized.
During the creation process, when BHO is vacuumed or whipped the wax transforms into a soft and brittle substance that crumbles easily. Depending on how much it has been broken down.
Typically a yellowish brown in color, a “dab” of wax is usually smoked using a water pipe or vaporizer. Waxis probably the stickiest form of concentrates that really should only handled with a dab tool. The word “dab” originates from wax concentrates, referring to smoking a “dab” of wax.
Rosin is extracted from either dried marijuana buds, trim, or lower-grade water hash/kief. The unique thing about rosin is that it can be made with nothing more than a hair straightener, parchment paper and some hand-applied pressure. As a result it will resemble a golden shatter or oil-like extract that looks similar to pressed high-quality water hash or even solvent-extracted shatter.
Budder, also known as budder wax, is a type of THC-rich cannabis concentrate. It shouldn't be confused with cannabinoid-infused butter (aka cannabutter), which is used for making edibles and other delicacies. Budder is amber/yellowish in color and closely resembles regular butter in texture.
A Dabbable syringe offers a way to ensure accurate dosage of decarboxylated (activated) cannabis oil. These devices are also called applicators, and they look similar to a syringe you might use to give liquid medicine. They're essentially a tool that measures and delivers your dab or concentrate. .
