Do it yourself concentrates
Making cannabis concentrates is an exciting process and it’s actually relatively easy to do. Or you can just go to the nearest medical marijuana
dispensary or any dispensary in Colorado Springs and get anything you want. Instagram and other platforms boast many self proclaimed concentrate guru’s with secret recipes and processes. Some of these folks are in fact millionaires now with name brands carried across the US. So there is some weight to making your own concentrates here is what I found out..
The only tools you need are a pot or saucepan, a bowl, some cheesecloth, a strainer and something to strain the finished product with. You can make all sorts of different types of concentrates depending on what you want your final product to look like. For instance, if you want shatter then use ice water not cold water as this will help keep it clear in color but if you want more bubbles in your oil than just use cold water for extracting instead of ice water. The main thing that differs from one type of concentrate to another is the temperature at which extraction takes place.A good rule of thumb is to start low and go slow when you’re first starting out
To get from flower to concentrate, you will need to grind your cannabis flower up into a fine powder. Once it is ground up, put it into the pot or saucepan and add the desired amount of water. Bring the mixture to a slow boil and let it simmer for about an hour. Once it has simmered, use the cheesecloth to strain the mixture into the bowl. Then use the strainer to separate the concentrate from the plant material. Finally, store your concentrate in a airtight container.
Types of concentrates
There are a variety of cannabis concentrates available on the market. These include shatter, wax, oil, budder, and Live resin a type of cannabis concentrate that is made from fresh, frozen cannabis. The cannabis is frozen immediately after it is harvested, and then the frozen plant matter is used to make the live resin. Live resin is known for its high THC content and strong aroma.There is some debate over whether the strain of cannabis that is used for making concentrates matters. Some people believe that using a high-quality strain will produce a higher-quality concentrate. However, other people believe that any strain can be used to make concentrates.
There are a variety of different ways to consume concentrates. You can smoke them, vape them, or eat them. Smoking concentrates is probably the most popular way to consume them. You can smoke them in a joint, blunt, or bong. You can also use a vape pen to smoke them. Vaping concentrates is another popular way to consume them. Vaping is a healthy way to consume cannabis and it doesn’t produce any harmful toxins like smoking does. You can vape concentrates by using a vape pen or vape cartridge. Eating concentrates is another option. You can eat them by adding them to food or you can take them in the form of capsules. The shelf life of concentrates varies depending on the type of concentrate. Shatter, wax, and oil tend to have a longer shelf life than budder and live resin.
There is no one “best” way to make concentrates. The method that you use will depend on the type of concentrate that you want to make. For instance, if you want to make shatter, you will need to use ice water. If you want to make wax, you will need to use a hot water extraction method.
Terpenes are great for making concentrates
When it comes to chemical compounds to strip the plants down, there a few different options. For example, you could use butane, propane, or alcohol. However, using these chemicals can be dangerous and it’s important to be very careful when using them. It’s also important to make sure that you have adequate ventilation when extracting the concentrates. Terpenes can also be used to strip the plants because they are soluble in alcohol. This means that they will dissolve in alcohol and extract the cannabinoids from the plant matter. Terpenes are also responsible for the flavor and aroma of cannabis, so using them will produce a concentrate with a strong flavor and aroma which is usually lost during the process.
