There’s a crazy amount of ways to enjoy cannabis concentrates and extracts. You can find dabs, cartridges, infused joints, and other products at LA dispensaries. What kinds of extracts should you be on the lookout for the next time you stop by Roots LA? Here’s the inside scoop.
Types of Cannabis Concentrates and Extracts
There are several cannabis extraction methods that create different options with different advantages. Cannabis concentrates and extracts come in a wide variety of potencies, consistencies, and flavors. You can refer back to this guide or ask a budtender for their suggestions if you aren’t sure what to look for.
Live resin takes freshly harvested cannabis and freezes them immediately for roughly 24 to 48 hours. The cannabis is blasted with solvents such as butane, propane, or butane hash oil. Afterward, the remaining product is pressed to create a potent, flavorful, and terpene-filled extract.
Live rosin extracts are the result of solventless techniques. Live rosin starts with freshly frozen marijuana strains that are turned into ice water hash, otherwise called full melt bubble hash. The full melt bubble hash is pressed strongly with heat to create cannabis hash oil that’s slightly thick, waxy, potent, and delicious.
Besides extraction methods, different cannabis extracts will have varying consistencies. Shatter wax is commonly called “glass” for its thin, brittle, and translucent consistency. Shatter can have a light yellow hue to a dark amber appearance. Shatter is typically dabbed.
Crumble, or “honeycomb,” is another cannabis extract consistency. As the name suggests, crumble has a powdery and crumbly texture that breaks apart easily. The color ranges from pale yellows to dark, somewhat like pie crust. Crumble is best smoked from a dab rig, but you pack it on top of a bowl or in a joint.
Crystallines, commonly referred to as diamonds or isolated crystals, are incredibly interesting. The extract is made from isolated and purified CBD or THC. Crystalline typically has a clear see-through color that can be slightly yellow. This type of extract gets its name from its appearance, as it’s reminiscent of tiny quartz crystals.
