But why bother with concentrates when you have tried-and-true bud? Flower may be good enough for you, but there are many reasons to explore the many options—and medicines—offered in extract form:
Concentrates are nothing new in the cannabis world. In fact, herbal enthusiasts found ways to enhance the cannabis experience thousands of years ago by lumping together as many trichomes as possible. As technology continues to grow in the cannabis field, exponentially more potent concentrates are becoming available on a consistent basis. With CBD in particular being so popular, CBD concentrates offer a whole new way for consumers to benefit from the versatile, non-psychotropic cannabinoid.
While some venues might only offer a limited range of CBD concentrates, in reality, there are many different ways in which the cannabinoid can be extracted and turned into substances that can be smoked, vaped, dabbed, or eaten. Check out some of the most popular below.
What Types of CBD Concentrates Are There?
CBD exerts a soothing effect on the body that helps users unwind after long days and hard workouts. Opting for concentrates will maximise this restorative effect and create much more prolonged and noticeable results. As such, using CBD concentrates is a great way to harness the physical benefits of the cannabinoid, without getting high in the process.
Vaporizers use convection or conduction heating, or both, to heat up CBD concentrates. Instead of combusting the material, these systems simply heat it up to the point at which CBD and terpenes begin to evaporate. This creates a gentle, smooth, and extremely tasty hit. Some vaporizers even allow you to select specific temperature settings to harness particular terpenes and benefit from the entourage effect.
So, how do CBD concentrates weigh up against plain old flowers? Well, it turns out that dosing more CBD at any one time comes with some great benefits. Check them out below.
