A cannabis concentrate is simply concentrated forms of cannabis. They’re stronger, more efficient, and often thought to be a healthier alternative to smoking. They’re also incredibly versatile. If you’re looking to get into cannabis concentrates, here are five ways for you to enjoy them.

1. Top Dry Herb

Smoking is one of the most popular ways to enjoy cannabis. You can get a more potent high from your smoking experience by adding a concentrate such as kief, hash, or dab to your dry herb and smoke it from a pipe. Concentrates can also be mixed with herb and rolled into a joint.

2. Dab

Dabbing is the term used for smoking concentrates on their own. This method of cannabis concentrate use involves a dab rig, which looks very similar to a bong. The concentrate is applied to a “nail” which is heated using a blowtorch. The heat vaporizes the concentrate, which is inhaled through the rig.

3. Use a Vape Pen

Vape pens for cannabis are similar to e-cigarettes. Some pens require electricity while others use batteries. Battery-operated vaporizer pens offer the benefit of portability.

You have a couple of options when it comes to vape pens. You can select a vaporizer that requires you to refill it manually with your chosen concentrate. Alternatively, you can purchase pre-filled vaporizer pens and cartridges.

Vape pens are growing in popularity as an alternative to smoking. Rather than combusting plant material, the pen vaporizes the concentrate. You inhale vapor instead of the chemicals produced by smoking.

4. Make Edibles

Edibles are foods and beverages that contain cannabis. These include:

  • Brownies
  • Cookies
  • Coffee
  • Sugar
  • Energy drinks
  • Infused water

You can purchase edibles, or you can make your own. You can even make cannabis-infused sauces, dressings, syrups, and more. Concentrates make it easier to make edibles. Rather than decarboxylating buds and then simmering them for hours, the concentrate is simply added to oil or melted butter. Your canna-oil or cannabutter can then be used for homemade edibles.

Edibles offer numerous benefits. They’re discreet. They provide more accurate dosing. They also last longer. Keep in mind that they take longer to kick in, so give yourself some time before you have a second serving.

5. Create a Tincture

Tinctures are liquid concentrates that are made using alcohol or apple cider vinegar. They come in opaque bottles and are topped with a dropper cap.

You can use tinctures in a few different ways. The fastest way to reap the benefits is to place a few drops underneath your tongue. The cannabinoids absorb directly into the bloodstream, providing fast-acting effects. Another option is to add a few drops of your tincture to your food or drink. While it takes longer to feel the effects, this method is still effective. It also helps if you’re not fond of the flavor of your tincture.

Try A Cannabis Concentrate

Cannabis concentrates are growing in popularity. If you’re thinking about using them for the first time, remember to start with a low dose and work your way up. Finding your ideal dose will help you to get the most out of your experience.
