Since the raw plants originated from Asia, it is no surprise that the earliest processes in extracting cannabis concentrates also found its genesis in that region.
Cannabis Concentrates are a highly potent cannabis products that are derived from processing raw marijuana flowers to produce a concentrated mass of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), Cannabidiol (CBD), and terpenes. The THC and CBD in a Cannabis plant are all found in the trichomes, the frosty coat that is sprinkled throughout the flower. During the process, impurities and unnecessary substances in the plant are also eradicated, leaving only the most desirable components to elevate the consumer’s high. Besides being more potent, the effects of cannabis concentrates also occur much faster than raw flowers upon consumption.
Since the raw plants originated from Asia, it is no surprise that the earliest processes in extracting cannabis concentrates also found its genesis in that region. According to potguide.com, the earliest method of processing concentrates “simply involves rubbing cannabis flowers between hands, scraping the collected trichomes and compressing them to form a moldable and dark amalgamation, known as Charas (the Hindi word for Hashish).” The marijuana industry has come a long way since those times. In today’s time, is utilized in both solvent-based and non-solvent extraction method.
With the popularization and the wide-spread legalization of marijuana, the demand for more potent products also increases. Nowadays, concentrates could range from kiefs or hash to shatter and crumble. Shatter, wax, crumble, sugar, honeycomb, sap, and oil often refer to a concentrate’s texture.
