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 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 and experience immediate effects due to the faster absorption that occurs when dabbing/vaporizing. For this reason, many prefer CBD Concentrates as they are the quickest and often the easiest CBD product to administer.
WHAT ARE CBD DABS?
Dabbing, taking CBD Dabs, these are references to the use of a dab rig to vaporize CBD Concentrates. This is the most popular method of consumption for Hemp Extracts and concentrates. This involves taking a small amount of CBD concentrate, a ‘dab’, and placing it on a heated dab rig attachment called a nail, bucket, or banger. This heated attachment quickly vaporizes the CBD Concentrate and the vapor produced is inhaled, usually through water inside of the dab rig. Some may refer to dab rigs as oil rigs, and other labels exist for similar devices used specifically for concentrates like e-rigs, dab spoons, nectar collectors, e-nails, etc. There are always new and innovative methods for consuming CBD Concentrates becoming available! These provide the quickest and most efficient ways to consume CBD and other cannabinoids & terpenes.
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.
IS CBD LEGAL?
According to the 2018 Federal Farm Bill, Cannabis Sativa L. products containing less than 0.3% Delta-9 THC on a dry weight basis are considered hemp products and are federally legal to consume, sell, and ship to all 50 states! Marijuana-derived CBD products that have been extracted from cannabis containing over 0.3% Delta-9 THC are not legal federally and are not classified as hemp products. Sauce Warehouse only sells 100% legal Hemp Extracts, CBD Concentrates, & Hemp Flower. Some states have their own laws regarding the levels of THC permitted in hemp products, so be sure to check your local laws before purchasing CBD products online. Also, keep in mind that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved hemp & CBD products for the treatment of any serious diseases or medical issues.
DOES SAUCE WAREHOUSE SHIP CBD CONCENTRATES TO ALL 50 STATES?
Yes. Sauce Warehouse will ship CBD Concentrates, Hemp Extracts, & Hemp Flower to all 50 states.
HOW WILL CBD CONCENTRATES MAKE ME FEEL?
While CBD Concentrates won’t make you ‘high’ like traditional cannabis concentrates and cannabis flower will, it is possible for them to have psychoactive effects. In most cases users report increased relaxation, pain relief, stimulation, or drowsiness. Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates containing Delta-9 THC can cause a slight ‘high’ in users with little to no THC tolerance. The effects you experience largely depend on the type of CBD Concentrate you use.
Effects of CBD Isolate
CBD Isolate will give you only the effects of CBD. Of course, there are also CBN Isolates, CBG Isolates, and other cannabinoid isolates that will produce the effect of these specific cannabinoids. CBD Isolate will provide the effects most CBD users are familiar with such as relaxation and the promotion of sleep. The effects of CBD are much stronger when vaporized and inhaled compared to eating CBD gummies, or other edible forms of cannabidiol. This is true for all the cannabinoids present in Cannabis/Hemp.
CBD Isolate is even more powerful than traditional CBD concentrates when dabbed or vaporized, because there are much higher concentrations of CBD present in CBD Isolate than other types of CBD concentrates. In many cases, CBD Isolate contains over twice the amount of CBD contained in other types of CBD concentrates.
Other types of Isolates will have the effect of the isolated cannabinoid they contain. CBN Isolate for example, is most used by those who desire a sleep-aid as CBN is thought to induce sleep better than CBD can on its own. CBG Isolate has been showing promise for treating all types of ailments in ongoing research studies, and our customers report beneficial pain relief when using CBG concentrates.
If you have been considering using CBD or other Hemp extracts to help with a specific issue, you may want to investigate the unique effects of each cannabinoid and try an isolate product containing the cannabinoid that aligns with your specific needs.
It is important to remember that Sauce Warehouse makes no certain medical claims about the potential benefits of any cannabinoid or CBD product on our website. CBD and the other cannabinoids present in cannabis/hemp have not been approved for any medical uses by the FDA. Before using these products, it’s best to consult your physician.
Effects of Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates
Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates will give you the effects of CBD, and a few minor cannabinoids & sometimes terpenes. The term ‘broad spectrum’ refers to a broad spectrum of cannabinoids that are present in these types of concentrates. For example, you will often see CBG in these broad spectrum CBD concentrates. A concentrate that contains CBD and CBG will produce the combined effects of these two cannabinoids. If terpenes are present in the concentrate, the unique effects of each terpene will contribute to the overall effect as well.
Other popular minor cannabinoids that are often present in broad spectrum CBD concentrates are CBC, CBDv, CBDa, & CBN. Broad Spectrum CBD concentrates will always have a broad spectrum cannabinoid profile, and they will contain zero THC. However, it is important to remember that lab testing cannot always pick up trace amounts of Delta-9 THC or other THC isomers. These trace amounts that may or may not be present can accumulate in your system and cause a positive drug test, even if you never experience the psychoactive effects of THC.
With that said, remember next time you see a Certificate of Analysis (COA) that reads ‘0%, ‘LOQ’, or ‘ND’ next to the THC percentages, that there is always the chance of trace amounts of THC being present. If you are required to pass drug tests and are considering occasional use of CBD concentrates, you will probably be just fine if you purchase from a reliable vendor like Sauce Warehouse and stick to CBD Isolates & Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates. The more you consume, the higher your risk of failing a drug test. Purchasing from a trusted vendor is very important, as many shady companies exist that use false lab reports that cannot be trusted.
Effects of Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates
Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates will provide the combined effects of a full spectrum of cannabinoids. Each full spectrum CBD concentrate will contain its own unique full spectrum cannabinoid profile, as well as a unique terpene profile. In the hemp & CBD industry, products are classified as ‘full spectrum’ if they contain Delta-9 THC or other THC isomers. Some full spectrum CBD concentrates will contain less cannabinoids than a broad spectrum CBD concentrate, but because THC is present it is labeled full spectrum.
Because these types of concentrates are often extracted directly from hemp plant material, they contain the same natural terpene profile of the material they were extracted from. Users of hemp extracts and CBD concentrates can tell you, concentrates that have a natural terpene profile produce a noticeably stronger and more enjoyable effect compared to concentrates that have had terpenes added to them. Studies have found that when terpenes are used together with cannabinoids, they contribute to the entourage effect.
Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates generally produce a stronger ‘Entourage Effect’ than broad spectrum CBD concentrates. The ‘Entourage Effect’ is created when multiple cannabinoids combine to create a synergistic and more pronounced effect than they would otherwise create on their own. And as mentioned previously, adding terpenes to the mix enhances this powerful entourage effect. CBD Live Resin concentrates and solventless CBD Rosin concentrates tend to contain higher levels of terpenes and cannabinoids which contribute to their stronger effects and increased flavor when compared to other full spectrum CBD concentrates. Isolates and Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates are best for those who wish to avoid THC because of drug tests or THC sensitivity, and Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates are great for those who wish to experience the entourage effect. The best way to go about trying CBD Concentrates is to start with small doses and work your way up until you are familiar with the effects.
POTENTIAL BENEFITS REPORTED BY CBD CONCENTRATE USERS
The FDA forbids vendors of CBD products to make any medical claims in regard to the possible benefits of CBD, but here are a few of the benefits consumers tend to report after using CBD Concentrates:
• Better Control of Appetite
• Reduced Stress/Anxiety
• Pain Relief
• Reduced Inflammation
Many studies have been done demonstrating cannabidiol’s anti-bacterial & antioxidant properties, but again, Sauce Warehouse does not claim CBD will treat or cure any health issues. Before using CBD Concentrates you should discuss with your primary care physician who can help you in making the right decision. Never rely on advice/testimony found online!
HOW LONG DO THE EFFECTS OF CBD CONCENTRATES LAST?
The most common method of consuming CBD Concentrates is vaporization using a dab rig or a dab pen. When inhaling vaporized CBD Concentrates, the effects are immediate and can last anywhere from 2 – 4 hours in most cases. Though it’s important to remember that everyone is unique, and your experience may differ.
When consuming CBD Concentrates orally or infusing them into edibles, the effects will usually take an hour or two to kick in and from there they will last around 8-12 hours. CBD Concentrates that have been mixed into a topical cream will last around 4 hours.
The duration of effects from CBD Concentrates depends entirely upon the method of use.
ADDITIONAL FACTORS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO THE EFFECTS OF CBD CONCENTRATES
Here are some additional factors that can influence the effects of CBD Concentrates:
Terpenes are natural compounds produced in the resin glands of cannabis & hemp plants that give the plants unique aromas and flavors. In the wild they serve as a defense mechanism to keep predators away, but us humans find them to be extremely pleasant and delicious! Depending on the strain, several different terpenes can be found in cannabis plants. Some of the most common include:
Studies suggest that the infamous ‘Entourage Effect’ produced by using a full spectrum of cannabinoids together is made stronger when terpenes are added to the mix. These cannabinoids and terpenes are thought to work in unison to produce a much more therapeutic effect. Some of our customers here at Sauce Warehouse swear by specific terpene/cannabinoid combinations to overcome their unique issues.
This one is simple. CBD Concentrates that have been extracted with care to produce a clean product will have more potent and long-lasting effects compared to poorly extracted concentrates. Sauce Warehouse only sells CBD Concentrates and Hemp Extracts that have been manufactured by professional extraction artists and reputable companies. Pure CBD Concentrates can be one of the most efficient CBD products on the market when made correctly.
The dose you use will have a dramatic influence on the effects you experience. One small dab will produce totally different effects than a large dab or multiple small dabs, especially in users that are new to using CBD. It’s important to start with a small dose and work your way up slowly, especially if you are using Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates. Full Spectrum concentrates contain Delta-9 THC and THCa which converts to Delta-9 THC when vaporized and these molecules can accumulate in your system and produce psychoactive effects if large enough doses are consumed.
The cannabinoid content contained in CBD Concentrates has the greatest influence on your overall experience. Different types of cannabinoid profiles produce different types of effects.
CBD Isolate contains only CBD, and thus the effects experienced will only be those produced by Cannabidiol. Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates contain a broad spectrum of cannabinoids including CBD, and effects will be limited to CBD and a few minor cannabinoids. Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates will produce the strongest effects of all due to the full cannabinoid profile and full terpene profile present in the concentrate.
CAN I PASS A DRUG TEST AFTER USING CBD CONCENTRATES?
It is important to remember that even CBD Isolate and Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates can contain small traces of THC that lab tests cannot detect. While it is unlikely you will fail a drug test after consuming these types of CBD Concentrates, it is possible! We suggest exercising caution and not taking unnecessary risks. If you choose to ignore our suggestion, CBD Isolate is probably the safest type of CBD Concentrate to consume when passing a drug test is a concern. And of course, the more frequent your use, the higher the risk of failing a drug test.
HOW ARE CBD CONCENTRATES MADE?
There are a few different methods used to extract or create CBD Concentrates and Hemp Extracts. There are essentially two main categories of CBD Concentrate manufacturing, true full spectrum extracts and imitation extracts.
True Full Spectrum Hemp Extracts
True full spectrum Hemp Extracts are concentrates that are made by extracting cannabinoids and terpenes directly from hemp plant material using a variety of extraction methods. Solvent-less extraction via a rosin press, and solvent based extraction using supercritical CO2 extraction or other hydrocarbon extraction are the most common methods used.
While rare, CBD Rosin is made using a Rosin Press to apply heat and pressure to hemp plant material which squeezes the rosin out onto parchment paper. The rosin is then collected, and it is immediately ready to be consumed or sold. Because the process of pressing rosin is completely solvent-less, no solvents need to be purged and no extra steps need to be taken to make the rosin consumable.
Solvent based methods involve pushing a solvent through hemp plant material often through a closed loop system to extract cannabinoids and terpenes. This solvent is then collected along with the hemp extract after the hemp plant material has been filtered out. Because consuming solvents is dangerous the solvent must be purged from the concentrate before it is able to be consumed. This is usually done using a vacuum oven or through evaporation.
Additional steps may need to be taken if the initial extraction process did not remove plant fats, lipids, and waxes. This additional process is called winterization and it removes these undesirable impurities leaving behind a clean extract containing only cannabinoids and terpenes.
Imitation Hemp Extracts and CBD Concentrates are often broad spectrum, but they may also be full spectrum. These are created using isolate and/or distillate as a base. Terpenes and other cannabinoids are added in for flavor and texture. These concentrates are manipulated to ‘imitate’ popular true full spectrum hemp extracts like shatter, wax, and live resin and they are often marketed as these popular types of concentrates as well.
Because this method allows for complete control of the cannabinoid content, it is the most widely used in the industry today where Delta-9 THC levels must remain compliant at less than 0.3%. It is much harder to produce true full spectrum hemp extracts that are compliant.
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 consistency, some are solid, some are powders or crystals, and others may have a few 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 another common form of CBD Concentrate. CBD Isolate is often pure CBD in a powder or crystalline form and has higher levels of CBD than the other 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:
•CBD Diamonds: Pure CBD isolate in a crystalline form. CBD Diamonds can be combined with terpenes and other cannabinoids which is the case with our Sauce Warehouse CBD Diamonds. Sauce Warehouse CBD Diamonds are a full spectrum CBD concentrate product containing a full spectrum cannabinoid profile including Delta-9 THC and terpenes. There are also Broad Spectrum CBD Diamonds available in our collection of CBD Concentrates here at Sauce Warehouse.
•CBD Isolate: CBD Isolate contains the highest levels of CBD out of all the CBD Concentrates available on the market. It is most commonly a white powder or crystalline material and can contain up to 99% pure CBD!
•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, such as CBD BHO Wax, that contain natural terpenes and the full spectrum of cannabinoids.
•Crumble: CBD Crumble usually looks similar in appearance to regular Cannabis crumble extracts, and like CBD Wax it can be made using isolate/distillate or a true full spectrum extraction process. 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 Isolate, 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 other types of CBD Concentrates. This is because of the unique process used to create CBD Live Resin. CBD Hemp Flower plant material that CBD Live Resin is extracted from is frozen immediately after harvesting to preserve terpenes and cannabinoids. Other types of concentrates are extracted from plant material that is dried and cured using traditional methods which can destroy many of these precious terpenes and cannabinoids. CBD Live Resin is the preferred type of CBD 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 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 that separate desirable cannabinoids from undesirable plant materials and impurities. Hemp distillates may be either Full or Broad Spectrum, and in some cases, they can be considered cannabinoid isolates.
•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. Unfortunately, because the THC concentration increases as all the cannabinoids are pressed out of a large amount of flower into a smaller amount of rosin, CBD Rosin is rarely ever compliant. Therefore, you won’t find many vendors selling CBD Rosin on the market today.
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 less than 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. Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates contain a broad spectrum of minor cannabinoids aside from CBD such as CBC or CBG. 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.
WHO SHOULD USE CBD CONCENTRATES?
Anyone who is looking for a quick and easy way to consume CBD, that also would like to experience the effects of CBD in their most potent form should give CBD Concentrates a try.
Those Looking for Immediate Effects
Unlike eating CBD or putting a drop of tincture under the tongue, vaporizing, or dabbing CBD concentrates allows users to experience immediate effects and more potent effects with smaller doses. This is due to cannabinoids like CBD being absorbed much faster and more efficiently into the bloodstream when inhaling them in a vapor. CBD edibles must be digested, and a rather large amount of CBD can be destroyed and go unused. This makes CBD concentrates a more cost-effective option in addition to providing more immediate and stronger effects.
Those with Medical Issues Requiring Large Doses of CBD
Many users of CBD concentrates have medical issues that require large doses of CBD and CBD concentrates allow them to consume these large doses without spending too much on gummies or other forms of CBD. You can imagine needing to take 500mg of CBD each day when most gummies on the market only contain 10-25mg. Most users report that digested CBD isn’t even active until they consume over 100-200mg. This makes CBD concentrates a much more efficient method of consumption. Many of those with medical issues also require immediate relief, and CBD concentrates are currently the fastest acting CBD product on the market.
People Who Wish to Add CBD to Their Daily Cannabis Use & Those Trying to Quit Cannabis
Another popular group of people who are turning to CBD concentrates are daily Cannabis concentrate users or just daily Cannabis users in general. As many of these users get older, they are finding themselves less concerned with the ‘getting high’ aspect of Cannabis use and more concerned with the actual health benefits. These users may mix CBD concentrates with their THC concentrates to provide a more balanced experience. Others may decide to quit using THC concentrates and regular Cannabis products altogether.
Using CBD Concentrates as a Substitute for Cannabis
For these users, CBD concentrates have proven to be quite useful in supplementing the daily ritual of taking a dab which can be quite a hard habit to break. Not only can the ritual of dabbing be hard to let go of, but it can be quite unpleasant to quit using Cannabis cold turkey. Dabbing CBD concentrates introduces all the familiar cannabinoids into the blood stream minus the high levels of Delta-9 THC which can make the experience of quitting Cannabis or taking a tolerance break from Cannabis much easier.
Full Spectrum CBD Concentrates containing low levels of THC can be used initially to lower the bodies THC tolerance without completely giving up THC, and eventually the transition can be made to Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates or CBD Isolates to completely rid the body of THC without giving up the other beneficial cannabinoids present in Cannabis or the users daily routine.
Using CBD Concentrates to Quit Addictive Substances Like Nicotine
CBD concentrates are also great for those who have decided to stop using other habit-forming substances. Since CBD isn’t habit forming in and of itself, getting into a routine of using CBD daily isn’t necessarily dangerous and it can provide users with a substitute for dangerous substances like nicotine or harder drugs. Unlike these addictive and dangerous substances that can really wreak havoc on a person’s body & mind, CBD is relatively benevolent and may even provide some health benefits.
Concentrate Users Who Are Sensitive to THC
People who are sensitive to THC also may find CBD concentrates useful. Full Spectrum CBD concentrates are often enjoyed by those who cannot use regular Cannabis concentrates that contain very high levels of THC. And for users who want to avoid THC altogether, CBD concentrates are available that contain zero THC. At Sauce Warehouse we have every type of CBD concentrate on the market including full spectrum, broad spectrum, as well as CBD Isolate. Whether you are looking for low THC or no THC concentrates we have just what you are looking for!
HOW TO USE CBD CONCENTRATES
Dabbing CBD Concentrates & Hemp Extracts is the preferred method of CBD consumption for many CBD users. The reason for this is simple, CBD concentrates can provide immediate effects, and they provide the strongest effect per mg of CBD consumed. This is all made possible by the quick and super-efficient absorption into the bloodstream that takes place when CBD and other cannabinoids are inhaled in the form of vapor or smoke.
As consumers become more health conscious, CBD concentrates are becoming the preferred choice over smoking CBD Rich Hemp Flower. While both methods of use provide an immediate effect with efficient absorption of CBD, dabbing or vaporizing CBD concentrates is thought to be much healthier. CBD concentrates are also easier to use than hemp flower, more discreet, and more versatile in the number of ways they can be consumed.
Because CBD concentrates have levels of CBD that range in potency anywhere from 10-99%, and because they are becoming available with high levels of specific minor cannabinoids like CBN & CBG, they provide users with a method of consuming the unique cannabinoids that will meet their needs. These cannabinoids are highly concentrated and as a result they are more potent than hemp flower and other common CBD products.
When dabbing CBD concentrates using a dab rig or vaporizing them using a dab pen, its always best to start with small doses and increase slowly until you find the right dose for you. Because these concentrates contain very concentrated levels of cannabinoids, users usually only require a very tiny ‘dab’ of concentrate to achieve the effects they desire. If a concentrate contains 90% CBD per gram, or 900mg of CBD per gram, and the average dose of CBD is 25mg, a small 1-gram jar of CBD concentrate can contain well over 36 doses! You probably won’t find a more cost-effective method of consuming CBD!
These CBD Concentrates can be consumed in many ways. As mentioned previously, dab rigs and dab pens are quite common methods used to vaporize CBD concentrates. In addition to vaporization, CBD concentrates can also be smoked by placing them in a joint or on top of a bowl of flower. If vaporizing & smoking aren’t your thing, you can also add CBD concentrates to edibles or infuse them into topical products. But it is important to note that digesting CBD is much less effective than dabbing, vaping, or smoking CBD. At least twice the dose is usually required to produce similar effects and the onset is prolonged.
A Quick Guide on the Different Methods Used to Consume CBD Concentrates:
Dabbing CBD Dabs Using a Dab Rig
Dab Rigs are typically glass water pipes that feature an attachment known as a banger, bucket, or nail. These bangers are either quartz or titanium and are heated using a butane torch, or an e-nail. E-nails provide consistent heat to the banger using a coil that attaches to the banger itself. An electronic controller is attached to the coil allowing the desired temperature to be set and monitored. When using a butane torch to heat your banger, it is essential to use timers or simply count down in your head after heating to ensure the banger has time to cool to the optimal temperature. If the banger is too hot it will destroy terpenes and ruin your dabbing experience! A cool down period of 40-50 seconds is usually sufficient.
Once the banger is heated, a dab tool is used to take a dab of CBD Shatter from the concentrate jar and place it inside the banger. This is done while inhaling through the rig, so that the vapor produced is inhaled after being filtered through the water.
Vaporizing CBD Concentrates, especially concentrates like Isolate-Based CBD Shatter with a high CBD concentration, is the quickest and most efficient way to consume high doses of CBD. This is because of the inhaled vapor containing CBD & other cannabinoids being absorbed into the bloodstream much quicker than they would be using any other consumption method.
What Do I Need to Dab CBD Concentrates?
1. DAB RIG OR DAB PEN
A dab rig is essential for any serious concentrate connoisseur. These water pipes allow for cool water filtration of vapor, and if you purchase a smaller rig meant to preserve terpene profiles like those made by MJ Arsenal, you will enjoy better flavor compared to a dab pen or other methods of use.
Dab pens are better if you will mainly be using CBD Concentrates on the go or in situations where you need to be discreet about dabbing.
2. BUTANE TORCH OR E-NAIL
If you are going with a dab pen, you can skip to the next essential item. But if you are using a dab rig, you are going to need a heat source! The cheapest solution is a butane torch. Butane torches as the name implies are fueled by butane that can be purchased at pretty much any gas station these days. You want to make sure the butane torch itself is of high quality. Many torches out there are made with cheap materials and will not last very long. Sauce Warehouse carries high quality butane torches from trusted companies like Blazer Torches and Maven Torches. When using a torch, you may also want to invest in a small tabletop timer so you can time your dabs to be taken at the perfect temperature. Generally, you want to wait about 40-50 seconds after heating your banger until it is red hot.
E-nails are another option for heating your banger. These devices feature a controller box that plugs in to the wall and allows you to set a desired temperature to be maintained throughout your entire dab session. A coil that is attached to this controller box fits snugly around your banger to keep it at a consistent temperature. E-nails are good investments for those who dab daily and often, as buying butane to refill a torch can get costly when refills are needed frequently.
Sauce Warehouse has organization stations available for purchase that not only hold q-tips and isopropyl alcohol for cleaning your banger, but they also feature built in dab timers! These are perfect for keeping your dab sessions organized, clean, and enjoyable.
There are some cool new rigs out on the market now that feature a built-in temperature control system. These rigs are called ‘e-rigs’. Popular brands like PuffCo make these e-rigs and they have become a big hit within the cannabis community. CBD Concentrates can be used in these rigs without the need for a butane torch or an e-nail. Most of these devices are chargeable with built in batteries like a cell phone.
3. DAB TOOLS
Dab tools are used to remove ‘dabs’ of CBD Concentrates from their containers and place them inside dab pens and heated bangers when using a dab rig. It is important to purchase only quality dab tools from trusted vendors as cheaper tools made overseas may contain toxic coatings that could potentially burn off into your concentrates when inhaling and cause health concerns. These tools are usually glass or stainless steel, any tools with odd coatings especially paint should be avoided at all costs.
There is a plethora of other Dabbing Accessories that you might eventually want to invest in, such as dab pads which are used to set dab rigs on, but the above accessories are the primary essentials that will allow you to begin dabbing CBD Concentrates with ease.
Vaporizing CBD Concentrates in a Wax Pen or Other Portable Vaporizer
Some users may find dab rigs and all the necessary accessories required to use them a bit overwhelming. For these users, a portable concentrate vaporizer (dab pen, wax pen) is a simple to use device that allows CBD concentrates to be vaporized and inhaled easily with the press of a button. These pens will generally feature a small chamber that is heated by pressing a button on the side of the pen. The CBD concentrate is loaded into the chamber using a dab tool, and a vapor is produced when the button is pressed. This vapor is then inhaled. Super simple!
This method of consuming CBD is popular among those who need to use CBD at work or on the go. In many cases the vapor produced that is inhaled and exhaled is relatively odorless and these pens look like a regular e-cigarette device so there is the added benefit of discretion. Many of these portable devices have temperature control features, so the perfect temperature can be dialed in allowing you to ensure the preservation of flavorful terpenes and optimal vaporization of your cannabinoids.
These dab pens are available in many different sizes, shapes, and variations, so finding one that is perfect for your needs should be no hard task. Yocan is a trusted brand that offers a wide selection that is also affordable.
Smoking CBD Concentrates
CBD Concentrates can also be added to joints/blunts of flower or placed on top of a bowl of flower. It’s best to sandwich the concentrate between layers of flower when placing inside a bowl, this way you are not applying a flame directly to the precious cannabinoids and terpenes. This can be a pleasant experience that combines the effects of smoked flower and vaporized CBD concentrates.
If you are feeling creative, some CBD concentrates like CBD Wax and CBD Rosin can be twirled around the outside of a joint or blunt to create a ‘twaxed joint’ that will provide extremely potent effects!
Making Edibles with CBD Concentrates
CBD Concentrates can be added to food and drink as well. On every product page here at Sauce Warehouse we have instructions for making edibles with CBD Concentrates. It’s quite simple and anyone can infuse their favorite recipes right at home!
You will first need to check your CBD concentrate’s COA to make sure most of the CBD content is really CBD and not CBDa. CBDa, or cannabidiolic acid, requires decarboxylation before it can be digested by the body. Decarboxylation is the activation of compounds through heat. This process essentially converts CBDa to CBD. This form of concentrate is most efficiently consumed using a dab rig, e-rig, dab pen, or with flower, which decarboxylates the cannabinoids so they can properly bind with our endocannabinoid system. Consuming CBDa rich concentrates without decarboxylating is likely to produce zero effect. And, quite frankly, one of the most common reports we hear even from those who do ingest decarboxylated CBDa, is that CBD edibles just don’t work as well. Eating CBD seems to require much larger doses and the effects are minimal compared to those experienced when CBD is vaporized.

CBD Concentrates are extremely concentrated CBD products containing high levels of CBD and other desirable cannabinoids. These concentrates are available in isolate form, broad spectrum form, & full spectrum form. There are many different types of hemp extracts and CBD concentrates that each have their own unique appearance and consistencies.
Effects produced by CBD concentrates are reliant on several factors, including the quality of the concentrate itself, the cannabinoid and terpene content, and of course the dose! Those who are concerned with passing a drug test should always choose CBD Isolates or Broad Spectrum CBD Concentrates to avoid risking a positive test result. But these users should also remember that even these types of concentrates may contain trace amounts of THC that could trigger a positive test result.
The most common method of using CBD concentrates is dabbing or vaporizing them using a dab rig or dab pen, but they can also be added to flower and smoked or even added to edibles and topicals. Dabbing & vaporizing CBD concentrates, however, is the quickest and most effective route of administration introducing CBD and other cannabinoids into the bloodstream more effectively and faster than any other method of consumption.
