Take a seat, my curious comrades, as we embark on a journey through the kaleidoscope of toking techniques. From the ancient art of rolling a joint to the modern-day wizardry of concentrates and dab rigs that could rival the contraptions in a mad scientist's lab, we’re about to traverse the quirky, the curious, and wild and wonderful world of getting high.
Cannabis flower, or buds, is the most recognizable and traditional form of cannabis. These are the dried and cured flowers of the female cannabis plant. Users often grind these flowers and smoke them in joints, pipes, or bongs. The effects are determined by the strain's cannabinoid and terpene profile.
Cannabis Wax, also known as "dab," "shatter," “diamonds” or "budder," is a highly concentrated form of THC extracted from the cannabis plant. This concentrate is created through extraction processes like butane hash oil (BHO) or CO2 extraction. The resulting product is a sticky, wax-like substance with significantly higher THC levels than the flower. It's primarily consumed through a process called "dabbing," involving flash-vaporization using a specialized rig or vape pen.
THC cartridges contain concentrated cannabis oil and are designed to be used in vape pens or vaporizers. The oil inside these cartridges can be derived from various extraction methods, like CO2 or solvent-based extraction. They offer a discreet and convenient method of consumption and come in various flavors and potencies. Users inhale the vapor rather than smoke, allowing for a more subtle and odorless experience.
Dabbing refers to the act of consuming cannabis concentrates, such as wax or shatter, by vaporizing a small amount on a heated surface and inhaling the vapor. This method provides an intense and immediate high due to the high concentration of THC.
Cannabis concentrates are highly potent extracts derived from the plant. They come in various forms like wax, shatter, oils, and live resin. Concentrates contain significantly higher cannabinoid levels compared to flower, making them popular among users seeking stronger and quicker effects.
Each form of cannabis consumption offers unique advantages and experiences. Give them all a try and see what works for you. Just remember, start with a low amount and build up. You can always add more!
