Are you looking to broaden your cannabis experience? Cannabis concentrates are an awesome alternative to joints, vapes, and edibles.
If you’re new to concentrates, you’re in the right place. Read on for some tips that will help you choose the best cannabis concentrates and cannabis shatter in Toronto. We’ll also highlight some of our most popular products.
What Are Cannabis Concentrates?
A cannabis concentrate is a type of essential oil extracted from the cannabis plant.
Essential oils are nutrient-rich fats created by plants for survival. They contain fragrances, bitter flavours, and antimicrobial compounds. Cannabis concentrates, sometimes referred to as cannabis resin, are no exception to this rule.
Cannabis resin contains high concentrations of plant compounds (cannabinoids), including THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is responsible for the “high” feeling the plant provides. It also contains non-psychoactive cannabinoids like CBD (cannabidiol), a
Types of Cannabis Concentrates
Cannabis concentrates are sold in a variety of forms. The following are some of the most common ones you’ll find on dispensary shelves in Toronto:
To produce live resin, cannabis is frozen right after it’s harvested. This allows the plant to retain its potent terpene (flavour and aroma compounds) profile.
Live resin is usually dark yellow in colour. It’s very malleable and sticky without being overly wet.
Rosin is made using a unique extraction process that combines heat and pressure.
This process squeezes out resinous sap and produces a very sticky substance that sometimes appears translucent. It’s often gold or dark brown in colour.
Hash is made by compressing the trichomes (tiny hair-like growths) of the cannabis plant. It’s often sold in blocks that are firm but still moist and pliable. You can also buy it as dry sift hash, which has more of a powder-like consistency.
You can also purchase cannabis concentrates in oil or liquid drop form. This is a popular option for those who want a minimally processed product that is rich in terpenes and other plant compounds. Drops and oils can also be easier to dose.
How to Choose the Best Cannabis Concentrates
As you can see, there are lots of different types of cannabis concentrates to choose from. How do you know which is right for you?
Here are some factors to consider when weighing your options:
- Delivery method: Some cannabis concentrates, like live resin and rosin, work best when used with a dab rig; this might be intimidating to some people, but it’s preferred by a lot of experienced cannabis users
- Experience level: Those who are new to cannabis concentrates may prefer something like an oil that’s easier to use and dose
- THC content: Some cannabis concentrates, such as hash or live resin, are higher in THC than others, so they will have stronger mind-altering effects
No matter what kind of cannabis concentrate you’re thinking about using, always prioritize quality. Work with a reputable dispensary so you can feel confident that you’re getting a safe and effective product.
