What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates go by a lot of names, wax, live resins, shatters, crumbles, sauce, batter, budder, distillate, and others. They are often used for vaping, in recipes, and in topicals, but what are they really? If you’ve been curious about cannabis concentrates, or you have some 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 solvent-less.

Solvent-Based Extraction

Typically, ethanol, CO2, or butane is run through marijuana plant material to strip it of cannabinoids, terpenes, and other cannabis compounds. That solution is heated to remove the solvents. It’s important to buy your concentrates from trusted brands that produce pure and clean concentrates.

Solvent-less 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.

The Mindfulness/Marijuana Connection

The Mindfulness/Marijuana Connection

There seem to be two kinds of people in the world, those that love to be busy (and talk about how swamped they are), and those who embrace a slower way of life. When did being busy become a badge of honor? Why do some people feel like being the busiest is something to strive for? We’re all guilty of rushing through our morning routine or multitasking through a conversation with someone. Mindfulness is not our default mode, it’s a skill, and something we need to practice to achieve.

Marijuana can be a great tool to help us focus on slowing down and paying attention to what’s really going on around and within us. Whether you’re a mindfulness-master, or looking to get better about focusing on the present, we’ve put together some tips and resources to help you make the mindfulness/marijuana connection!

Conscious Cannabis Use

What do you love most about your favorite strain? That it puts you into a happy and uplifting state? That you get the giggles? That it calms your mind or relaxes your body? Practicing mindfulness while you’re using marijuana lets you truly embrace your high and focus on the benefits to make the most out of them!

You’ll feel the effects more easily and have a deeper connection with your high when you are mindfully using marijuana. You’ll also get a better sense of effects from different strains and dosages, making it easier to identify and replicate your best experiences.

Integrating Marijuana Into Your Mindfulness Routine

Shop carefully

Be deliberate about the products you’re buying. Ask your budtender for more background on the product, where it’s grown, what the company stands for, how it’s made. Smell the strain and pay close attention to the specifics you pick up and how your body reacts to it.

Choose a great spot

Plan ahead and choose a really great place to get high, somewhere you’re totally comfortable. Be sure to prep the space so you won’t be distracted or tempted to multitask.

Create a ritual

Whether you’re firing it up, snacking on an edible treat, or dabbing, be really intentional as you prepare for the experience! Get comfy, prep what you need, and choose who you’re going to be with carefully. Think about the steps you’re taking to prepare and as you get high. Enjoy each action and moment!

Choose a mindful activity

From yoga to journaling to meditation, there are a lot of options for how to practice mindfulness. Try a few different ones until you find what’s right for you. Don’t give up too early though, it can take time and practice!

Meditation & Marijuana

Mindfulness and meditation often go hand in hand. When your brain is kicked into overdrive, mindful meditation is a great tool for coming back into the moment, not to mention the positive effects it can have for those dealing with chronic pain, stress, and anxiety. Adding in your favorite marijuana products can really help you dive deeper into those moments, for a beautiful and restorative experience. Here are some of our team’s favorite tips for a great meditation session:

“Choose something to focus your attention on before you start your medicated meditation.“
“Microdosing is a great way to start out, so you’re sure you’ve got the right strain and the right dose for a positive meditation session. Remember to be open and attentive to your body and feelings.”
“Choose a strain that helps you get into a happy, creative and cerebral headspace, or one that you know provides a calming vibe.”
“Remember that when meditating, you need to acknowledge the feelings and thoughts that come up, and let them go. Don’t beat yourself up for what you’re experiencing, let it all go.”
“Don’t be afraid to use guided meditation! There are some really great sessions available to help you focus your awareness.”
“Let your insecurities and worries melt away as you focus on your mantra or a specific sound or intention. Be open to learning about yourself and setting yourself free!”

Are you ready to learn more about the marijuana/mindfulness connection? We want to help! Stop into Green Goddess Remedies in Southwest Portland’s Ashcreek neighborhood near Multnomah Village today! Our budtenders are here to help you find the right strain and products for your next meditation session, or just to help you be more intentional about your purchases.

Cascade Valley Cannabis Rainbow Prerolls Available at Green Goddess Remedies in Portland Oregon

Though there’s something to be said about the ritual that comes with rolling your own, pre-rolled blunts, joints, and cartridges are great for smokers on the go, and those who can’t, or don’t want to do the prep work. When you’re looking to quickly and conveniently feel the effects of your favorite strains, pre-rolls and cartridges are flavorful and ready to go!

We’ve put together a menu of almost 100 pre-rolls and cartridges so that you can try out a variety of products to find your favorites. We know how diverse our customers are, and love that pre-rolls and cartridges give you the chance to experience different flavors and strains so conveniently! Our budtenders are here to help you explore our menu and answer any questions you may have along the way. Here are some tips to get you started, along with some of our favorite products you’ll find at Green Goddess!

Be picky.

Pre-rolls and cartridges are more popular than ever, which makes it so important to purchase them at a high-quality dispensary like Green Goddess. Low-quality products are often cut with fillers, which can be dangerous. Don’t risk it!

Embrace consistency.

Hand-rolling joints can be enjoyable, but cartridges and machine rolled pre-rolls are more consistent, giving you a more reliable experience every time!

Ask questions.

Ask your budtender about the strain, whether it’s full-spectrum, and about the product’s potency. Our staff will be able to answer any questions you have and make great recommendations for you, so you’re sure you’re selecting the right products.

Close Up of Marijuana Flowers for Sale at Available at Green Goddess Remedies in Southwest Portland Oregon
Smell the flower.

The best flowers will have a strong odor. Citrusy, hoppy, sweet, skunky, whatever the dominant scent is, you’ll be able to easily tell when smelling high quality cannabis flowers.If you come across a cannabis flower that smells like hay or grass, the product probably wasn’t dried or cured well.

Pay attention to the trim job.

Hand-trimmed cannabis flowers are typically a higher quality product then machine-trimmed ones. The attention and care that goes into hand-trimming a flower will result in a better product.

Ask about the curing process.

Just like a tobacco product, cannabis benefits from time in an air-tight glass container to dry out. You’ll get maximum flavor from a cannabis flower that has been well-cured.

Look for colors.

Try to avoid flowers that are muted and colorless, and instead look for bright, colorful flowers with pink, purple, blue and orange hairs popping out from between the green buds.
