Created by extracting cannabinoids & terpenes from the cannabis plant, primarily THC. Extraction methods include chemical (CO2, butane, ethanol propane, hexane) & solventless (water, heat & pressure, or dry sieve). These products can range in THC concentration from about 70% to as high as 99.9%, making them some of the most potent forms of cannabis available. 

Due to their potency, distillates and isolates are popular in both recreational and medical contexts. They are often used in:

  • Edibles, Topicals and Infused Products: Their lack of flavor and odor, plus high potency, make distillates and isolates ideal for infusing into foods and beverages.
  • Vaporization and "Dabbing": They can be vaporized using a vape pen or dabbed using a dab rig, providing intense effects due to the high THC content.

The creation of distillates and isolates involves advanced extraction techniques that can include:

  • CO2 Extraction: Utilizes carbon dioxide under high pressure and extremely low temperatures to isolate, preserve, and maintain the purity of the medicinal oil. This process doesn't require the use of solvents and is considered one of the safest methods of extracting cannabis for human consumption.
  • Butane or Propane Extraction: Both methods use butane or propane as solvents to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material. However, these methods carry a risk of leaving trace amounts of solvents in the final product unless properly purged.
  • Hexane Extraction: Similar to butane and propane, hexane can be used as a solvent to extract oils from cannabis. It is less commonly used due to its higher toxicity and the stringent purging requirements to ensure all solvent is removed from the final product.

Crumble (60-90% THC - butane/propane/CO2)

This concentrate is known for its dry, crumbly texture, typically yellowish in color. It is made using butane, propane, or CO2 extraction methods, resulting in a high THC content

Budder (60-90% THC - propane/butane)

Similar in THC content to Crumble (60-90%), Budder has a creamy, butter-like consistency. It's typically produced using propane or butane.

Shatter (Up to 90% THC - butane)

Recognizable by its glass-like, translucent appearance, Shatter can contain up to 90% THC. It's usually made through butane extraction.

Live Resin (50-70% THC - butane/propane/ethanol/CO2)

This type of concentrate preserves more of the terpenes of the cannabis plant, as it's made from fresh, frozen plants using butane, propane, ethanol, or CO2. It has a lower THC content compared to others (50-70%).

Co2 Oil (50-90 % THC-CO2) 

Extracted using CO2, this oil can vary widely in consistency and color, and it can contain 50-90% THC.

Rick Simpson Oil-RSO (30-50% THC- Ethanol)

Known for its medicinal properties, RSO is a thick, syrup-like oil with a lower THC range (30-50%). It is extracted using ethanol.

Kief (50-80% THC-dry sieve)

Kief is a powder made from trichomes removed from the leaves and flowers of cannabis plants. It can be compressed to produce cakes of hashish or consumed (typically smoked) in powder form in a pipe or with cannabis bud or other herbs.

Rosin (50-80% THC-heat & pressure)

Rosin is made using heat and pressure, allowing the resin to separate from the plant material. It retains the cannabinoid and terpene profile of the plant, resulting in a purer, more flavorful concentrate. Rosin can be made with fresh cannabis flower, ice water hash (bubble hash), or dry sift hashish. Live rosin, which is made using fresh frozen cannabis, is considered to be the purest rosin product.

Bubble Hash (30-60% THC-water)

Bubble hash is created using an ice-water extraction process and contains no solvents. It can be used in this form or made into Live Rosin.
