Have Confidence In Concentrates
There’s been an influx of more affordable cannabis concentrates hitting the Utah medical cannabis market, many of which are currently (as of this writing) available at Dragonfly Wellness. They’re potent, convenient, and a little bit goes a long way. If you are shopping for products in terms of THC content, you can’t get more efficient than concentrates.
But for many people, cannabis concentrates are still a fairly new and perhaps somewhat mysterious subject to be covered. We’re here today to demystify products like shatter, badder, and hash with a simple crash course so that you can walk into any Utah cannabis dispensary with confidence about concentrates.
So what are concentrates? Well, like the name implies, it’s a form of cannabis that has been reduced and concentrated to its most desirable components, the cannabinoid and terpene content, by removing all other plant matter. This can be done with or without solvents like butane and ethanol. In fact, the oldest form of cannabis extract, “hash”, was (and still can be) traditionally made by rubbing cannabis flower between your hands. But rest assured, no bare hands have touched your hash at Wellness.
One of the most popular forms of concentrates is shatter, so named because it has a brittle and glassy consistency that is easy to break or “shatter” into smaller pieces which can then be combined with flower or consumed on its own with an electronic vaporizer. Often made with butane hash oil (BHO), or a mixture of butane and propane, Dragonfly shatter is specifically made with an ethanol extraction method that produces a safe, clean, and tasty product.
Another popular form of concentrate is badder, which has a soft and malleable texture and is more dull compared to shatter. Similarly to shatter, badder can be combined with flower or consumed on its own but can be easier to manipulate than shatter, especially for newer users who may be unfamiliar with using concentrates.
Once you have your desired concentrate you can utilize it in your favorite dry herb vape by layering or “sandwiching” it between the flower to not gunk up your device with melted concentrate. You can also use specific concentrate vaporizers, electronic “dab rigs”, that almost instantly vaporize concentrate to be inhaled on its own. At Dragonfly Wellness we sell devices like the Boundless Terp Pen, G Pen Roam, and Puffco Peak, all of which can be used to consume or “dab” these wonderful concentrates.
Keep in mind that these are only some of the forms of concentrate available, and we will certainly be going into more detail in the future, but the principle is the same regardless of what you may come across. As the names show, many of these concentrates are simply named with a single word that describes its consistency. Wax, budder, badder, shatter, crumble, diamonds, sugar, sauce. It’s not hard to imagine how they might look. But just like flower, each individual concentrate is going to vary in terms of potency and flavor, so talk to your pharmacist and pharmacy agent about which concentrate may best suit your needs.
