There has been a dramatic rise in news attention to medicinal cannabis in 2013, with reports on CNN, ABC, CBS, and local publications about high-cannabidiol cannabis oil effectively controlling the symptoms of rare epileptic conditions like Dravet syndrome, Doose syndrome, infantile spasms, cortical dysplasia, and more. Additionally solvents like ice water or ethanol may be used to more effectively strip the cannabis plant of its cannabinoid-loaded trichomes. Here's the big problem: there isn't any real oversight or regulation when it comes to consumable products in the cannabis industry.

Simply stated, cannabis concentrates are the extracted essential oils of the cannabis plant. That's likely one of the reasons why CBD products, including CBD oil, are becoming more socially acceptable and increasingly popular. However onset of effects are delayed and last longer due to slower absorption of the cannabinoids and is an important consideration when deciding on how to use and administer cannabis oil.

There are various techniques used in the production of water hash, and the resulting products have many forms (bubble hash, solventless wax, ice wax, among others). Decarboxylation and degassing are the processes of converting the acid form cannabinoids to the neutral forms and removing volatiles, respectively, by applying heat and agitation.

Live resin is extracted from living cannabis plants. So now that we've covered a few different ways that you can smoke shatter, it's important to keep in mind that this is the most potent cannabis concentrate of all. All extracts are concentrates but not all concentrates are extracts.

For example, cannabis alcohol extraction might be a poor method for producing products where the flavor of cannabis oil won't be masked by additional flavorings, as a polar solvent like ethanol can also extract pigment compounds like chlorophyll, which can give the resultant extract an unpleasant bitter taste But for other purposes, alcohol extraction can be an excellent choice, as the process can be carried out at atmospheric pressure and there is no risk of toxic residual chemicals being left behind in the extract.

cannabis edibles delivery extracts aren't legal until mid-December, but that hasn't stopped the black market from capitalizing on the popularity of unregulated extracts and the phenomenon of dabbing." Dabbing involves placing a small, sticky portion of the extract on a specialized dabbing rig and then heating it with a portable handheld blow torch.
