Different Types of Concentrates Explained


The cannabis industry has grown rapidly due to legalization and changing consumer preferences, offering a variety of high-quality concentrates. Understanding these concentrates can be confusing, so let’s simplify it by explaining the different types and their properties:


Kief is a natural cannabis concentrate made of tiny crystals found on cannabis leaves and flowers. It’s not as potent as other concentrates but is versatile. You can collect it easily and smoke it alone or add it to regular cannabis for a stronger experience.

Cannabis Oil

Cannabis oil is a thick extract made using butane or propane to separate cannabinoids from the plant. It’s highly potent, containing a significant amount of CBD or THC. You can vaporize, dab, take it orally, or use it in edibles.

BHO Concentrates (Shatter, Wax, Budder)

BHO concentrates are made by extracting cannabinoids using butane. This produces shatter (a solid amber concentrate), wax (soft and pliable like candle wax), and budder (creamy texture). They are known for their high THC content and rich terpene profiles.


Rosin is made without solvents by applying heat and pressure to cannabis plants, producing a thick substance rich in cannabinoids and terpenes. It’s eco-friendly, safe, and retains its potency. It’s a preferred choice for those looking for cleaner cannabis extracts.


CBD or THCA isolating diamonds are pure cannabis concentrates with 99% purity. They are extremely potent and can be dabbed, vaped, or added to marijuana flowers. Due to their complex extraction process, they tend to be more expensive.
