All About Extracts

Let’s Talk Extracts

Also known as concentrates, extracts are made by processing cannabis flower into a concentrated solid or liquid that’s inhaled or ingested. The fact that they’re so full of cannabinoids and terpenes — some extracts contain up to 90% THC — is precisely the reason you’ll want to digest a few details before consuming extracts. Read on to discover their potency potential, learn about consumption methods and shop the range of extracts and accessories the OCS has to offer.

Hash

One of the most traditional cannabis concentrates, hash is made up of the plant’s sticky trichomes (also called kief), which have been simply pressed into a ball or brick. It can be smoked in a joint or consumed with a vaporizer. Highly concentrated bubble hash can be dabbed.

Shatter & Wax

Shatter is made by processing cannabis with butane to extract the cannabinoid- and terpene-rich trichomes. Excess oils are then evaporated over low heat, leaving a translucent material that cools into a hard sheet. To make wax, shatter is whipped to incorporate air and produce a creamy texture. Both can be smoked, vaped or dabbed.

Rosin

Rosin looks like shatter but is made using a solventless, entirely mechanical process: Cannabis is pressed between heated plates to extract an oil full of cannabinoids and terpenes in just minutes. (When fresh buds are used, the result is live rosin.) The translucent, sap-like extract can be added to a joint or consumed with a vaporizer or dab rig.

Oils

A mixture of a concentrate and a neutral-flavoured oil, such as MCT or sunflower, cannabis oil is typically packaged in a bottle with a spray top or a dropper. It’s meant to be taken orally, typically sublingually (that means under your tongue).

Capsules

A portable and convenient cannabis format, capsules (as well as dissolvable lozenges and tablets) contain distillate or isolate, plus other edible ingredients, depending on the finished product. Whatever the shape or size, they're taken by mouth.

Isolates & Distillates

Distillates are an extremely concentrated form of cannabis oil that can contain a range of cannabinoids, while isolates consist of only CBD or THC. Both are versatile — they can be ingested orally as drops, mixed into food or used in a vaporizer or dab rig.

Kief & Sift

Basically hash before it’s pressed, kief (also known as sift) is a green powder made up of the cannabis flower’s trichomes — those sticky mushroom-shaped glands that produce the terpenes and cannabinoids. Kief and sift can be smoked or vaped, or used to make homemade edibles.

Resin

A golden-coloured extract ranging in consistency from saucy to syrupy, resin is known for its high concentration of terpenes and cannabinoids. Live resin, a newish entry to the world of concentrates, is made with fresh, not dried, cannabis. Both types can be smoked in a joint, vaped or dabbed.
