Amongst cannabis connoisseurs, concentrates are very popular. Concentrates get their name because they have higher (concentrated) levels of THC compared to typical marijuana flower. Concentrates are highly sought after because they are fast acting, potent, and flavorful. But concentrates come in many different forms, and there are some differences between them. The biggest distinction between types of concentrates is by the process used to extract the terpenes, trichomes, and/or oils from marijuana buds: more specifically, whether or not solvents are used.
