What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates go by a lot of names, wax, live resins, shatters, crumbles, sauce, batter, budder, distillate, and others.

If you’ve been curious about cannabis concentrates, or you have some marijuana products you love, but want to know more, keep reading! The team at Green Goddess Remedies wants to help you better understand cannabis concentrates.

What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates are just what they sound like, a more concentrated version of cannabis. More potent than a cannabis flower, cannabis concentrates are extracts that contain higher amounts of cannabis compounds, including cannabinoids and terpenes. They are often named for their consistency, and there are a lot of varieties available! The different classifications are created through different extraction methods. There are two main methods of extraction, solvent-based and solventless.

Solvent-Based Extraction

Typically, ethanol, CO2, or butane is run through the marijuana plant material to strip it of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other cannabis compounds. That solution is heated to remove the solvents. Since the extraction method is complex, it’s important to buy your cannabis concentrates from trusted brands that produce pure and clean concentrates. You want to look for certified license holders since they are strictly regulated and inspected for quality. Green Goddess only supplies regulated products.

Solventless Extraction

You can also extract cannabis concentrates without the use of solvents, by using heat and pressure. A rosin press uses heated plates to squeeze the plant materials, whereas hash and kief can be collected by shaking and grinding the trichomes.
