The Different Types of Cannabis Concentrates

If you’re starting to delve into the world of cannabis consumption, you may hear about cannabis concentrates. Concentrates are essentially ultra-concentrated cannabis that is made by separating resin from the flower. This process extracts the maximum amount of cannabinoids possible, creating a more potent product.

Concentrates are found in many cannabis products, from vaporizers to edibles. However, there are dozens of different types of concentrates and extracts available that appear in a variety of forms. Here are just a few of the most common types of cannabis concentrates available from your local weed dispensary.
