I’ve been a regular at the local cannabis dispensary for many years now.
- I’ve tried a wide variety of consumption methods, trying to suss out what works best for me.
I started out with using edibles and tinctures, because they are so quick and self-explanatory. After getting more comfortable with smokable flowers, I was ready to move on to using concentrates. I’ll admit that I was a little intimidated by the varieties and potency of the concentrates. I wasn’t quite sure where or how to begin. I had no clue how to dab. I did some research online and l gained that concentrates are made by distilling the most expensive compounds of the hemp plant. The process separates out the trichomes, which cover the surface of the buds and are where the cannabinoids and terpenes thrive. The pulpy plant material is thrown out, creating products that are exceptionally high in THC. While strains of flower might be around 25% THC, concentrates correctly include upwards of 74% THC levels. These are especially flavorful, odortic and available in a wide array of strains and textures. Every style of concentrate is quite unique . There is hash, rosin, wax, budder, crumble, shatter, live sauce, diamonds and more available to purchase at the weed dispensary. I asked the budtenders at the dispensary a lot of questions. I am so fortunate that our local dispensary includes a dab lounge where I was able to safely try and experience the best of cannabis concentrates. It’s the perfect environment to be comfortable with the higher potency, rich terpenes and the psychoactive effects. Cannabis Concentrates are honestly beneficial for curative properties. I deal with serious migraine headaches and have found that cannabis can work to alleviate the pain.
