Cannabis Concentrates

Cannabis concentrates come in many different forms. Sometimes you’ll see them on full display, like weed oil in vaporizer cartridges. Other times, they’re under the radar in medicated balms and edibles. For more information on different types of concentrates, continue reading.

What Are Concentrates and Extracts?

Cannabis concentrates are the product of distilling down the most desirable parts of the plant. They contain all the cannabinoids and terpenes of cannabis flowers with none of the excess plant material. Once for once, cannabis concentrates have a much more significant proportion of cannabinoids and terpenes than raw cannabis flower. 

Cannabinoids and terpenes are responsible for the effects, aroma, and flavors you experience with any cannabis product. They are found throughout the plant in small, sparkling structures called trichomes. A cannabis concentrate is pretty much a condensed accumulation of the trichomes. 

Concentrates allow you to experience the best parts of cannabis in many ways. Cannabis concentrates can be consumed independently, sprinkled on cannabis flower to increase potency, or incorporated in a batch of edibles. 

The Difference Between Concentrates and Extracts

While the terms concentrate and extract are often used interchangeably, there is a slight difference. Extracts are a specific type of concentrate made using a solvent. This means that all extracts are concentrates, but not all concentrates are extracts. 

Many different types of solvents can be used to extract cannabis. Alcohol is one of those solvents. This is the case for Rick Simpson Oil or RSO. Other solvents that can be used include butane (in the case of Butane Hash Oil or BHO) and CO2 for cannabis wax extracts.

Concentrates made without using solvents are made using mechanical or physical methods to remove and gather trichomes. Examples of these types of concentrates include rosin, dry sift, and kief. 

Since cannabis extracts and concentrates come in various textures, it isn’t always easy to tell them apart just by looking at them. 

How to Consume Cannabis Concentrates

Not all concentrate customers are dabbers. Dabbing is the process of heating a concentrate or extract to the point it vaporizes, then inhaling the vapor. Dabbing is the most common consumption method when it comes to cannabis concentrates. However, these products can also be consumed using vape pens, tinctures, topicals, edibles, and more. 

Different Types of Concentrates


Kief can be used to sprinkle on dry cannabis flower to increase potency. It’s a simple way of utilizing cannabis extract to make your product more potent.


Wax is consumed by dabbing, which is the most popular method of consuming cannabis concentrates. This is when you inhale cannabis by heating a nail or dab rig, then placing it on the wax until the concentrate becomes vapor. 

Vape Pens

Vape pens are discreet, portable, and efficient. They usually have cannabis oil in a cartridge that you inhale through a small pen. 


Edibles provide an easy, non-smokable way for people to consume cannabis. They come in various shapes and sizes and can be chocolates, gummies, and more. 


Like edibles, topicals are another way to use cannabis without smoking. Topicals are usually used to apply on parts of the body that you’re feeling pain to provide targeted relief without the head high.
