What Are CBD Concentrates?
CBD concentrates are products that contain very high concentrations of cannabidiol, or CBD. These CBD Concentrates may also contain other cannabinoids, including Delta-9 THC, in which case they are referred to as Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates. There are also Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates which contain just CBD or in some cases they will contain CBD and a couple other non-psychoactive cannabinoids such as CBC or CBG. CBD Concentrates in comparison to other CBD products, allow users to administer a much higher dose of CBD in a much shorter period of time due to the higher concentrations of CBD present per dose. For this reason, many prefer CBD Concentrates as they are the quickest and often the easiest CBD product to administer.
How Are CBD Concentrates Used?
Not only are CBD Concentrates the quickest way to consume a large dose of CBD, but they are also very easy to consume. CBD Concentrates are most often vaporized and inhaled using a dab rig or a portable dab pen. While this is the most common method of consumption, CBD Concentrates can also be added to beverages & food. If a CBD Concentrate consists of primarily CBDa, it will need to be decarboxylated to convert CBDa to CBD which the body can easily metabolize. More information on cooking with and decarboxylating CBDa can be found here.
Types of CBD Concentrates
There are many different types of CBD Concentrates. The main factor that differentiates these different types is consistency. Some CBD Concentrates have a liquid like consistency, some are very solid, some are powdery, and others may have all of these characteristics. The most common type of CBD Concentrate on the market today is terpsolate(unfortunately). Terpsolate is what we at Sauce Warehouse usually refer to as a bottom shelf CBD Concentrate. Terpsolate consists of CBD Isolate mixed with Terpenes to produce a flavorful product that is very high in CBD. Don’t get us wrong, these can be a great way to consume CBD, we just prefer natural extractions that don’t require terpenes to be added in. CBD Isolate is the ultimate Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrate. CBD Isolate is almost always going to have the highest amounts of CBD per dose out of all the types of CBD Concentrates. On the opposite end of the spectrum, Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates like Rosin and Live Resin will always have the best taste because of the natural terpenes that are present from the parent material. These contain Delta-9 THC and a variety of other cannabinoids in addition to CBD.
Common Types of CBD Concentrates:
Diamonds/Powders: Pure CBD isolate in a crystalline or powdery form which contains nothing but CBD. These can be combined with terpenes and other cannabinoids which is the case with our CBD Diamonds and the Terp Sauce offered in our collection.
Wax: CBD Wax is usually an oily yet stable substance. Sometimes it is created with CBD Isolate or CBD Distillate mixed with cannabinoids like CBG. Though there are true CBD waxes that contain natural terpenes and the full spectrum of cannabinoids.
Crumble: Often similar to wax, but the moisture content can vary. Some CBD Crumble is very dry and will break apart like dust, other forms of CBD Crumble are more moist and have a dough like consistency.
Shatter: CBD Shatter is often very similar to crystalline CBD, because it is more often than not made using primarily CBD Isolate. CBD Shatter is almost always Broad Spectrum. In rare cases Full Spectrum CBD Shatter can be found, and it will usually look more like traditional shatter made from cannabis with an amber color opposed to the common white color of Broad Spectrum CBD Shatter.
Live resin: CBD Live Resin contains a larger amount of terpenes and cannabinoids than many of the other types of CBD Concentrates. CBD Hemp Flower plant material is frozen immediately after harvesting to preserve these terpenes and cannabinoids before extracting the concentrate material. CBD Live Resin is the preferred type of concentrate for ‘terp enthusiasts’ and those seeking a flavorful experience, but it is also this experience which usually raises the price tag.
Distillate: CBD Distillate is typically an oil that contains an isolated cannabinoid, or a group of isolated cannabinoids. Many different types of distillate exist, the most prevalent in our industry of course is CBD Distillate. There is also CBG Distillate, Delta 8 Distillate, and many other Cannabinoid Distillates available on the market today. Distillates are created using several different processes and may be either Full or Broad Spectrum.
Rosin: CBD Rosin like CBD Live Resin tends to have amazing flavor and equally amazing effects due to the high terpene and cannabinoid content. CBD Rosin is produced using only heat and pressure and because of this it is one of the few true solventless CBD Concentrates available. The consistency is usually that of a soft shatter which becomes more of a wax as it is exposed to heat.
Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates vs. Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates
The difference between Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates and Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates is quite simple. Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates contain zero Delta-9 THC, and Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates contain <0.3% Delta-9 THC. ‘Full Spectrum’ means the full spectrum of cannabinoids present in the Hemp plant. ‘Broad Spectrum’ means only a very broad spectrum of the total cannabinoids present in the Hemp plant. In some cases, Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates will contain other cannabinoids aside from CBD such as CBC or CBG, but in most cases they only contain CBD. Some users are sensitive to THC or other minor cannabinoids and for this reason they prefer Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates. Other users enjoy the ‘entourage effect’ created by using the full spectrum of cannabinoids all at once in Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates. The naturally present terpenes in Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates also play into this entourage effect and the unique flavors and aromas they produce are another reason many users prefer Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates.
