If you landed on this page, chances are you may already know the difference between dabs in a dab rig and dabs in a music video. For a growing number of cannabis enthusiasts, concentrated cannabis is opening up a whole new world of enjoyment.
Smoking flower remains the most popular way for cannabis patients to consume cannabis. However, seasoned dabbers have made the switch for higher levels of THC and CBD as well as better flavor. Concentrates are just that—concentrated cannabis. The flower from the plant goes through an extraction process where all the good stuff (terpenes, flavor, THC, etc…) gets amplified, or “concentrated” almost like orange juice concentrate in the frozen aisle.
Frozen OJ packages say made from concentrate on the outside and all you do is add water. Imagine if you didn’t add water to frozen OJ. It would be more ‘orange juicier’. Cannabis concentrates are pretty much the same. You get more of everything with every puff. More flavor and a higher high.
Consuming concentrates require a few different tools. Instead of lighters and rolling papers or pipes used for smoking flower, concentrates require a device where the bowl, not the product is heated up. The concentrate is placed in the heated bowl, as it melts you inhale its goodness. Different extraction processes offer different types of concentrates.
