Things You Need to Know About Cannabis Concentrates

The legal cannabis industry is booming, and with it comes an influx of new products that can be overwhelming to consumers. Cannabis concentrates are one such product category. These oils, waxes, hashes, and tinctures come in a variety of forms and offer different benefits for patients depending on their desired use.

Cannabis concentrates are an extremely potent form of cannabis that is made through a process of extraction. The methods vary depending on the type of concentrate but generally include some sort of solvent or chemical to separate the plant matter from the psychoactive cannabinoids and terpenes.

Cannabis concentrates, like shatter or wax, are used to make edibles, tinctures, and other products that have stronger effects than smoking or vaping. These concentrated forms of cannabis can be consumed by dabbing with a heated glass tool called a “dab rig” or using an e-nail as well as in vaporizers.

They typically contain much higher THC content than regular dried flower buds due to the process they go through during extraction, which makes them potent for medical patients who need strong doses to treat their condition.

What is Marijuana Concentrate?

Marijuana is a plant that comes in many forms. Marijuana has been a part of human culture for thousands of years. It was first grown in the Eastern Hemisphere and spread to Africa, Southeast Asia, South America, and North America. Marijuana is used as early medicine, a recreational drug, or sacrament, depending on where it's being used.  

In some areas such as Africa and Central America, marijuana can be smoked just like tobacco, whereas in other places, it's mainly consumed through edibles or tinctures. One way marijuana is consumed that doesn't involve smoking is through extracts which are concentrated doses of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) that come with their own set of pros and cons.

The THC concentration in these products is typically higher than other forms of cannabis products. There are many different types of concentrates on the market today, and they vary in color, consistency, and flavor.

Marijuana concentrates are made through various extraction processes and come in different consistencies, including waxes, oils, shatter/budder/ sap, and more. They’re easy to use too! Just load up your vape pen (a device used for vaping cannabis) with some of your favorite concentrates and enjoy an intense high that lasts for hours on end!

How to Make Marijuana Concentrate?

A cannabis concentrate is made by extracting the THC from cannabis plants and then purifying it. There are many different methods to extract THC, but the most popular way is using a solvent like butane or carbon dioxide. This process strips all of the other cannabinoids and terpenes (which give marijuana its flavor) out of the plant material, leaving just pure THC crystals.

There are many different methods, and it can be overwhelming at first. The two main methods are the following:

Solvent-Based Extraction

The idea of solvent-based cannabis concentrate extraction is nothing new, but with the recent legalization in some states and countries, it has been making more headlines than ever.

Cannabis concentrates can be made using a solvent-based extraction process that separates the resin glands from the plant material. This method involves soaking ground marijuana in a solvent like butane or propane and then heating it to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from within the plant matter.

A solvent-based cannabis concentrate extraction is a process that uses solvents to extract cannabinoids from plant material. The most common types of solvents are butane, propane, hexanes, and pentanes. These solvents can be used in either stationary or mobile extraction systems and are often combined with other chemical agents like alcohols or acids during the process for various reasons.

Solvent-based extraction is considered one of the safest methods of extracting concentrates because it doesn't use any heat, which would decrease its potency.

Solventless Extraction

A solventless extraction is a technique for extracting cannabinoids from plant material using only heat and pressure. This process takes place in two steps: first, the cannabis or hemp flower is ground up into a powdery substance to break down plant cell walls; then, the resulting mixture is heated at low temperatures until it liquefies.

The liquid can be filtered out of any remaining solid matter with a filter paper or cheesecloth, leaving behind pure cannabinoid extract. Solventless extraction offers many benefits over other methods such as making concentrates like shatter and rosin with butane gas - this method allows you to avoid inhaling any harmful fumes that are typically emitted during butane hash oil production.

Solventless extraction does not use any chemicals to get the THC out of your herb. And it can be done using just heat, water, and pressure.

How to Choose Your Cannabis Packaging

Packaging is a crucial part of any business, and it's especially important for cannabis. There are many options to consider when choosing the perfect packaging for your product, from the shape of the container to what you put on it. The color scheme can be an important consideration as well- with so many colors available, how do you know which one will best suit your company?

When it comes to cannabis packaging, there are many options. You can choose from a wide variety of styles and types of containers that come in different colors, shapes, sizes, and materials. The type of container you select will depend on your preferences for what is important to you in terms of the design as well as the function.

Here are some things you need to consider when choosing cannabis packaging:   

  • What is the purpose of the package?
  • Are there any branding considerations?
  • Will this package help with marketing and advertising opportunities?
  • How will this package affect your company's bottom line in terms of production costs and shipping fees?

These are all important questions that you'll want to keep in mind as you're deciding what type of cannabis packaging is best for your business.


The cannabis industry has been booming in recent years, and concentrates are a huge part of that. 

Concentrates can deliver the same benefits as flower smoking with a much stronger effect. But what is it exactly?

Cannabis concentrates, also known as dabs, are a form of cannabis that is highly potent and can be used in various ways. While the potency is high, there are several drawbacks to using this form of cannabis.

Cannabis concentrates are much more potent than dried cannabis flowers. The process of extracting THC from the plant and concentrating it into wax, shatter, or oil form yields an extract that is 60-90% pure THC. This weed concentrate can be dabbed, which means smoking it with a vaporizer, smoked in joints or blunts, eaten as edibles, or put on top of food. Cannabis concentrates have been around for a while, but they're becoming increasingly popular now because people enjoy them so much!
