Cannabis concentrates are becoming the most preferred way to consume weed in DC. And why not?! These products contain more THC than your average blunt. As a matter of fact, the THC present in concentrates is often equivalent to 15-20 joints.
Over the years, a lot of new types of concentrates have been developed. And selecting the one that is most suitable for you might be a little overwhelming, mainly because all these concentrates look oddly similar. This guide will teach you how to distinguish between various forms of cannabis concentrates and where to get the best concentrates in DC.
What are Cannabis Concentrates?
Cannabis concentrates are potent THC products that resemble honey or butter. These concentrates contain unusually high levels of THC, 50 to 90%. In comparison, some of the most potent Indica strains contain only 20% THC. This makes concentrates at least three times stronger than your regular strains.
4 Types of Cannabis Concentrates
There are four main types of cannabis concentrates, namely shatter, Crumble, Wax and Oil. Below we talk about all four;
Shatter is a form of butane hash oil that has a glass-like appearance. This cannabis concentrate is translucent and breaks or shatters easily when held; hence the name shatter. Shatter is considered the purest form of concentrate, which is why it's in high demand across DC.
Crumble is a powdery cannabis concentrate. It is very dry and crumbles easily. Crumble is made through a process known as chemical extraction. This process involves the use of solvents such as butane to extract THC from cannabis. Shatter is made through the same process but with less heat and pressure applied.
Wax is a cannabis concentrate created when a solvent is washed over cannabis plant matter. It possesses a gooey or creamy texture, similar to ear wax. Wax contains up to 90% THC, which is slightly higher than the THC levels present in most cannabis concentrates.
4. Hash Oil
Hash oil is a unique type of marijuana concentrate. Unlike most concentrates, Hash oil is produced with CO2 instead of butane. This creates a liquified concentrate. Hash oil is usually sold in syringes or containers because of its consistency.
Where to get FREE Concentrates in DC
You can get cannabis concentrates from dispensaries and head shops across DC. However, we recommend you get your concentrates from shops approved by the government. These days, most shops operate illegally and flout the most important law set by the Initiative 71 bill; Weed and related products cannot be sold for money. If you're worried about choosing the wrong store by mistake, don't worry; we got you covered.
