The Different Types of Marijuana Concentrates at Cannabis Station
The word “Concentrate” is becoming an ambiguous word in the cannabis business. It could mean kief, wax, tinctures, dabs, hash, butane oil, weed wax, CO2 oil or RS Oil. More and more people are trying these different forms of weed concentrates in Edmond’s, and at Cannabis Station we are here to guide you through the different options we have available in our marijuana shop located in Edmond’s Washington.
Marijuana Concentrates can be extracted in a variety of ways from the cannabis plant, leaving behind a product with high concentrations of THC. Some varieties of concentrates can test as high as 80 percent THC, while others can contain high amounts of non-psychoactive substances like CBD which is used mostly for medical marijuana patients and does not deliver the same high of normal weed products.
Here is a video by high times on the basics of Concentrates to get you started on your journey into the world of marijuana extracts.
These are some of the other types of cannabis C=concentrates you will find at Cannabis Station located in Snohomish County.
Butane Hash Oil (BHO) also known as Marijuana Wax
Butane hash oil or better known as BHO, is a very highly potent form of concentrate popularly consumed for dabbing and other vaporization techniques. Cannabinoid’s are drawn out of the cannabis plant using butane extraction, which leaves behind a waxy substance that will either maintain its sticky texture or harden up, which results in a crumbly “honeycomb” or a glass-like “shatter”. Because the THC content can be up to 80 percent, BHO is very popular for people who have chronic pain. Before using BHO or Marijuana Wax always make sure that it is lab tested like all of our products at Cannabis Station. If BHO is not purged correctly it can contain traces of butane which is not healthy for your lungs.
Kief, which also goes by the name of pollen or dry sift, is made up of the resin glands found in the trichomes of cannabis flowers. These glands contain the terpenes and cannabinoids that bring a diversity of flavors and effects to various weed strains. Kief is often used to make hash. Some consumers collect kief in a grinder and mix it with their cannabis for a more potent buzz.
Hash has been around for centuries. It is a marijuana concentrate that is made by compression of the plants resin glands. The powdery kief that surrounds your marijuana plants can be collected and pressed together to form the hash or other solvents such as ethanol or ice water can be used to more effectively remove the plant of their cannabinoid-laced crystals. Hash is not as potent as BHO and other concentrates but it remains popular around the world.
One of our most popular products at Cannabis Station is CO2 OIL, a concentrate that is made possible by expensive botanical extractor’s that use carbon dioxide and pressure to separate cannabis plant material. This method, called super-critical fluid extraction is one of the best ways of minimizing pot to its root compounds. The amber oil it produces can be vaporized in a number of ways, one o the most popular being portable vaporizer pens.
Some of the industry’s best sellers are disposable cartridges infused with CO2 oil and a medical-grade solvent called polypropylene glycol, which is used to give the oil its liquid consistency.
Tinctures where legal until 1937 and were the most common form of cannabis medicine in the United States of America. A tincture is a liquid concentrate made through alcohol extraction, which takes out many of the marijuana plant’s useful cannabinoids. All you need is a few drops under the tongue for the medication to take its effect. The good thing is that you can apply more drops if needed since it is impossible to overdose on cannabis. Tinctures are a great way for people to get their medication if they prefer not to smoke cannabis.
Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)
In 2003 a well know marijuana advocate named Rick Simpson treated his skin cancer using a homemade remedy made from cannabis extracts. By soaking the weed in pure naphtha or isopropyl alcohol, the therapeutic compounds are removed from the plant, leaving behind a tar-like substance after the solvent fully evaporates. RSO which also goes by the name of Phoenix Tears can be used orally or applied directly to your skin. Many of Cannabis Stations vendors have different versions of RSO. Some are high in TCH while others are high in CBD which is the non-psychoactive form of the cannabis plant.
