What are Cannabis Based Concentrates?
Concentrates, also sometimes referred to as oil, dabs, and hash are “concentrated” forms of their beginning source, flower. When compared to the parent flower, concentrates contain a much larger concentration of cannabinoids – the naturally occurring chemicals in cannabis, such as THC, THC-A, CBD, CBD-A https://mj420.delivery/product/trichome-productions-sauce-1g-do-si-do/. Concentrates can be broken down into many different forms and many different consistencies. The starting material used, extraction technique and many other factors contribute to the form and consistency of the final product.
Cannabis crude oil is what many people typically call the oil that’s produced during extraction because of the additional steps needed to refine the product. However, some extraction methods, such as hydrocarbon extraction using butane or propane, have essentially rendered this terminology irrelevant due to the high levels of refinement that occur throughout the extraction process itself, thus producing a “crude” oil that’s actually ready-for-sale.
Hydrocarbon extraction (also referred to as BHO extraction) processes have the unique ability to extract the most sought after compounds and leave out the bad-tasting ones, resulting in highly-refined “crude oil” that can be made into artisan-crafted extracts such as shatter, wax, live resin, sauce, budder, crumble, isolates, and more. Unlike other extraction methods, the hydrocarbon extraction can bypass multiple refining processes to produce an elevated and more refined extract.
