Cannabis Concentrates

A cannabis concentrate is an enriched form of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and/or cannabidiol (CBD). Cannabis concentrates include THC concentrations ranging from 40% to 95%, making them much more potent than high-grade marijuana, typically with 20% THC.

Volatile solvents such as ethanol, butane, propane, or hexane may be employed to prepare extracts in uncontrolled conditions, posing a fire and explosion threat. While producing a high-quality product, supercritical fluid extraction with carbon dioxide (CO2) eliminates the risk of fire and explosion.

Concentrates produced legally for retail sale in Canada’s legalized provinces are tested for quality and potency.

Cannabis Plants

Male or female flowers are present on most cannabis plants, while some plants have both. Male flowers bloom in elongated bunches along with the leaves before turning yellow and dying. Female flowers are spike-shaped and remain dark green until one month after flowering, when the seed ripens. Hashish is a more potent form of marijuana made from cannabis flower resin.

Some cannabinoids are responsible for the “high” sensation associated with marijuana use. There are 483 known chemical components in the cannabis plant, and at least 85 distinct cannabinoids have been identified. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component of cannabis, is the most common cannabinoid.

Cannabis ingested orally is not the same as marijuana that is smoked. Edibles have a delayed effect due to their absorption through the stomach. The liver processes the compounds before entering the bloodstream due to their absorption through the gastrointestinal system.

Butane Hash Oil

Butane Hash Oil (BHO) is a concentrate that uses butane as a solvent. When it is in liquid form and is extracted from the cannabis plant, it is referred to as Hash oil.

Butane Hash Oil is a viscous, sticky substance made from solvent-extracted cannabinoids from marijuana. The solvent evaporates, and the resulting thick oil is reduced to a honey-like consistency.

Supercritical CO2 extraction is a safe technology that produces high-quality goods while reducing the risk of explosion and fire. It does not entail chemicals or solvents. Hence it does not contribute to environmental damage. The CO2 extraction technique is carried out at low temperatures, resulting in a natural, pure product with no hazardous byproducts.

Cannabis Concentrates

Cannabis concentrates can be ingested in various ways, including smoking, vaping, and eating.

Vaporization is a non-combustible alternative to smoking in which cannabis is heated to a temperature where the active components are released into an inhaled aerosol.

FAQs

What concentrates are the strongest?

The most potent concentrations are butane hash oil, BHO, waxes, shatters, and full-melt hash oil. This is due to stronger solvents in the extractions, such as butane, propane, and CO2.

Cannabis can range in strength from 2 to 95 percent THC, with our strongest concentrates being between 82 and 95 percent THC.

What is the best form of Concentrate?

Each form of concentrate is unique, and depending on the desired goal, one type may be selected over another. Most standard vaporizer batteries are cartridge compatible if you want to vape your concentrates.

You can also dab the concentrate using a dab rig or enail. If you intend to eat the concentrate, a solvent-free product may be preferable.

Are tinctures more potent than edibles?

This is dependent upon the process used to create the extract. Tinctures are made using ethanol, a significantly weaker solvent than butane, propane, or CO2. It is essential to know the THC potency of each product.

Cannabis tinctures are a liquid concentrate that can be added to infuse food or drinks with THC. Tinctures are a great alternative to smoking or vaporizing due to the longer-lasting effects.

How is THC wax made?

THC wax is a cannabis extract made by purging a solvent, like butane or CO2, through a tube filled with plant material, leaving behind a hardened and crystallized substance. After the solvent is purged, the remaining product is sticky with a sweet smell.

Is shatter legal in Canada?

Yes, shatter is a legal strain of cannabis. The cannabis is extracted from the cannabis plant to isolate the resin. It is produced without potentially harmful solvents, however,  the concentrate is entirely natural and safe.

How do I know if the concentration I’m getting is homemade or from a professional?

The difference between homemade cannabis concentrates and their professional equivalents is immediately noticeable. Professional-grade concentrates are made with the safest and most efficient methods available. Due to the high heat required, the final product is free of residual solvent and other impurities.

Is there an expiration date for concentrates?

There is not an exact date of expiration for a concentrate. One way to determine it is to smell and look at the concentrate. When a concentrate is no longer clear or has visible particles floating around it, it has begun to degrade and should not be used.
