Purity at Its Finest: Why Concentrates Are All the Rage
If you haven’t got your head in the clouds, then you have probably noticed that cannabis concentrates are sweeping the nation and increasing in popularity with every passing hour. Okay, that sounds a bit over-the-top, but this elevated form of cannabis ingestion deserves the dramatic praise that it has been receiving in recent years.
There is a lot of intrigue surrounding concentrates– How do I smoke shatter? Isn’t “dabbing” a dance move? Who is Rick Simpson? At one point or another, we were all confused about the ins and outs of concentrate usage. Let’s clear some of that up– (Oh and before I get ahead of myself, Rick Simpson is a Canadian cannabis hero whose unabashed faith in the healing powers of marijuana propelled him to create his own concentrate and distribute it freely to those in need).
Now, who’s ready to learn?
What is a Concentrate?
Basically, concentrates are the best of the best. What this means is that these products are made by extracting the best qualities of the cannabis plant compound (i.e the terpenes and cannabinoids) to give you an intensely pleasurable high. In the simplest terms, this is extracting the plant’s fragrant aroma and flavour profile (terpenes) and the THC/CBD qualities (cannabinoids) that hold all of the medicinal value. There is some other scientific mumbo-jumbo involved if you are interested in creating concentrates yourself, but as a casual consumer this is basically all you need to know about the production process.
How Do I Use it?
Now that we’ve got the “what” out of the way, let’s focus on the “how”. Concentrates take many forms and offer many different kinds of experiences. One of the various amazing qualities of cannabis concentrates is their versatility – Because the methods of consuming concentrates are wide ranging, you can choose your own adventure! Have fun experimenting with different types until you find your trusty companion.
Vapourizing (the purest form of consuming cannabis through tools such as volcanoes or pens) are other popular methods of ingesting concentrates.

If you are thinking about getting into concentrates, congrats! You have already taken the first step. Doing your research beforehand is the most helpful tool in ensuring a positive experience. When it comes to concentrates, you want to take your time to find your groove. When you do, you’ll finally experience the hype that everyone is raving about.
