Extracts & Concentrates
Many cannabis extract consumers who are concerned for their health prefer to avoid inhaling or absorb residual particles of butane in the weed concentrate. We could not agree more. For this reason, we have chosen the CO2 extract process for our cannabis extracts and weed concentrates products. This way, you can be sure to consume very good quality cannabis extracts without having to worry about your health.
What are cannabis extracts & weed concentrates
Cannabis extracts and weed concentrates have become an integral part of the medical marijuana market. Whether you prefer budder, cannabis oil, CBD drops, hash, shatter, sugar wax, or rosin to treat your condition, we have honed our various processes to create some of the tastiest and most potent cannabis extracts and weed concentrates in Canada.
Simply put, concentrates are created by stripping the cannabinoid resin properties, called trichomes, from the marijuana plant matter. The most well-known and widely-used cannabinoids are THC, for its psychoactive and medicinal properties, and CBD, also for its medicinal properties. The fresher the plant material is when the trichomes are extracted, the higher the quality of the resulting concentrates.
Consuming weed concentrates is an effective way to experience the medical benefits of cannabis because extracts are a purified form of marijuana. They contain a higher ratio of medically beneficial compounds and less plant material, which means you can use cannabis even if you want or need to avoid inhaling burning plant matter.
There are several ways to extract the cannabis trichomes from the plant matter. Many involve a cold process which freezes the trichomes to facilitate their removal from the plant.
Carbon dioxide extraction
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a gas that converts to a liquid under pressure. It has lately become a standard solvent in the food processing sector and is used in a range of extraction processes, including nutritional supplements and herbal remedies. CO2 processing is also a preservative-free way to extend the shelf life of foods without compromising freshness, quality, or safety.
Carbon dioxide processing produces pure concentrates with virtually no toxic residues. The high-pressure processing ensures precise separation of trichomes from plant matter, isolating only the purest essence of the cannabis plant.
Ice water extraction
Used to produce bubble hash, ice water extraction is also considered one of the cleanest and safest extraction methods. No solvents or extreme heat are involved. This process simply uses cannabis plant material, ice, and water. Without solvent byproducts to cause impurities in the concentrate, flavor and quality remain unaffected.
In short, cannabis extracts and weed concentrates offer medical marijuana patients high quality, reliable dosing, and quick absorption for a variety of treatments.
