Top 11 Types of Cannabis Concentrates Available Online In Canada
Budder, also known as badder wax, is a cannabis concentrate that resembles wax but is softer, oilier, and more vicious than other cannabis waxes.
Budder contains a few cannabinoids, but it’s mostly THC (80-90%) and terpenes. This premium Hybrid budder-Hawaiian punch is an example of a budder concentrate.
Budder is created by extracting cannabinoids from marijuana flowers with a solvent such as butane or CO2.
The solvent is blasted through the cannabis, the extract is collected, and the solvent is purged from the extract using heat and air pressure. The cannabinoids slowly crystallize to form budder.
Dabbing, vaping, pipes, and cannabis infusions are some ways to consume budder.
Crumble is a powdery dry cannabis concentrate that crumbles easily, as the name suggests. It contains about 90% THC and can range in colour from pale to deep yellow.
Crumble cannabis concentrates, such as this blue dream, are available online.
Crumble can be made from fresh frozen cannabis or dried buds, resulting in a live resin crumble. It is created using a solvent like propane, butane, or CO2 in a chemical extraction process similar to shatter.
But unlike shatter, crumble is left on low heat to allow the solvent to evaporate gradually and retain its full flavour.
Crumble can be consumed in a variety of ways; rolling a joint, vaping, dabbing, and edibles.
Caviar concentrate is a high terpene full spectrum extract (HTFSE) high in terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids. This concentrate’s appearance is of tiny, soft amber crystals that look like real caviar, thus the name.
Extractors separate the THC-packed trichomes from weed buds using a solvent-based process and lapping equipment.
A purging process is then used to remove any remaining solvents. Terpenes are extracted separately and infused into the resulting cannabis extract, resulting in caviar.
Banana Kush and other caviar concentrates can be smoked in joints, vaped, or dabbed.
4. Live Resin
Live resin is a dark yellow concentrate that can also be light yellow or white. Because it is pretty sticky, you should handle it with a dab tool. THC levels in live resin concentrates are high.
Customers love this cannabis concentrate because of the intense flavour and aromas preserved from the fresh cannabis plant materials.
Fresh frozen cannabis is used to create live resin. Following harvest, the plant matter is frozen, the oil extracted, and the live resin is produced.
Live resin can be taken by dabbing or vaping it with a dab pen. You can also use live resin on a bowl top or blunt for an extra kick. Live resin, such as this Alien OG, is available at Bud Express Now.
Hash, or hashish, is a solventless cannabis extract made from trichomes. Hash is typically brown or dark green and comes in the form of a brick or ball.
There are several types of hash, including dry sift and bubble hash (ice water hash). Hash – Superman is an example of hash.
Physical manipulation and temperature changes are used to remove and concentrate trichomes. The THC level in hash varies between 40 and 80%, depending on the strain.
As the name implies, a distillate is a concentrated oil refined through the distillation process. In contrast to solvent-extracted marijuana concentrates, such as shatter, distillates are considered solventless concentrates.
Depending on the distillation process and refinement level, the distillate concentrate may contain several cannabinoids and other cannabis compounds, such as terpenes and flavonoids.
However, most distillates are almost pure, containing only one cannabinoid.
The result is a potent extract that has been meticulously distilled to provide only the compounds required by the extractor.
Because distillate concentrates do not typically contain multiple cannabinoids or terpenes, they may produce a different effect than other concentrates.
Distillates such as this high premium syringes – granddaddy purple are used by those looking for highly concentrated products.
Shatter concentrates like this premium wedding cake shatter are the most concentrated type of THC concentrate available. It contains approximately 80% THC.
Its name derives from its consistency, which makes it easy to shatter into pieces when handled.
Shatter weed concentrate has a glassy appearance and is relatively stable. It is usually clear or amber in colour.
Typically, shatter is created by passing a pressurized solvent through a chamber filled with cannabis plant matter, concentrating the highly desired cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material.
You can use cannabis flower buds or cannabis plant remnants like shake or trim to make shatter.
The majority of people consume shatter by smoking or dabbing it.
Cannabis kief is one of the most well-known names in the world of concentrates. Kief is frequently referred to as the original marijuana concentrate.
Kief products such as this Ghost OG from Bud Express Now contain high terpenes and cannabinoid amounts. Kief is made by sifting flowers through delicate mesh screen layers without using solvents.
The resulting material is a highly potent and terpene-rich powder-like product.
Kief is typically intended for inhalation. You can use it alone or with other dry flower products or concentrates.
To achieve the desired experience, kief must be decarboxylated (or heated), which is why we don’t recommend eating pure kief.
THCA diamonds, as the name implies, appear as solid crystalline structures that are semi-transparent and resemble diamonds.
Diamonds are fascinating because they are made from a different type of concentrate known as sauce. The sauce is made using a closed-loop process that involves adding solvent to cannabis and removing it to create a concentrate.
Sauce concentrate is then subjected to another process known as diamond mining, in which heat and pressure create crystalline structures known as diamonds.
This cannabis concentrate is suitable for smoking, vaping, or dabbing.
10. HTFSE ( High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract)
THC concentrate High Terpene Full Spectrum Extract (HTFSE) focuses on terpenes rather than cannabinoids.
It contains approximately 50% THCa, which, when dabbed, converts to THC. Terpene content ranges between 13% and 40%.
HTFSE is extracted from cured, fresh, or flash-frozen flowers with a low boiling point solvent to preserve terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids while removing waxes, fats, and lipids.
This produces a highly pure concentrate with various effects and potential benefits.
HTFSE is best consumed with a dab rig, which allows you to control the temperature. You can use a vape pen with HTFSE sauce and high terpene extract cartridges.
11. Moon Rocks
Moon rocks are cannabis flower nuggets dipped in liquid weed concentrate and dusted with kief. Moon rocks are made by dipping or spraying a nugget of cannabis in hash oil or concentrate.
Girl Scout Cookies (the weed strain, concetrate and flower, are typically used, but any strain can be used.
You can smoke moon rocks by breaking them into a vape, joint, or pipe. People who have tried it describe big, full, fragrant smoke clouds and a rich and pleasant kief flavour.
