Concentrates are catching up to flower as one of the most popular ways to consume cannabis. Improvements in potency and purity are making cannabis concentrates better, and they’re also more available than ever before. The industry is growing to include a wider variety of cannabis extracts, so people have plenty of options to choose from. Our experienced staff at Chronic Therapy has identified some of the best cannabis concentrates that people love the most.
Types of Cannabis Concentrates
Ever since cannabis became legal in Colorado, the market has been exploding with new types of concentrates. People have been making concentrates for years, but the professional production of these extracts has brought quality and purity to the next level. The varieties are better and more diverse than ever before, offering a more potent experience than even the strongest cannabis flowers in the world.
The most popular types of cannabis concentrates include wax, shatter, and live resin. Each of these offers their own set of benefits– we encourage people to consider their options based on shelf life, ease of use, and terpene levels. Concentrates can be consumed using dab rigs, but some customers prefer to use concentrate pens because they’re more convenient, discreet, and portable. Read below to learn more about all of these concentrates.
Wax and Shatter
Wax and shatter are similar in that they both offer basically the same THC potency and are both used for dabbing. We source our own wax and shatter from our trusted extraction partner, Chronic Creations.
They use our best cannabis flower strains to make concentrates with state of the art equipment and innovative processes. We organize our wax and shatter into silver, gold, and platinum tier levels. The platinum tier is our very best wax and shatter– you can also shop by strain to find an extract from your favorite flower.
Live resin is becoming popular because it has a more complete terpene profile than wax and shatter while still offering a high level of potency. This fragrant concentrate retains more of the essence of the flower that went into it because of an advanced and complicated extraction process.
The consistency is interesting and visually appealing– live resin concentrates often look like sugary crystals with some terp juice in the mix. The crystals are THCA (which turns into pure THCA when vaporized), and the terp juice is basically the essential oil that gives cannabis its flavor. The unparalleled flavor makes Chronic Creations live resin one of the best concentrates in the world.
Cartridges and Pens
Cartridges and pens represent some of our very most popular items, which makes a strong case for crowning them the best cannabis concentrates. We only stock the best cannabis vape products from trusted brands, and you can find both replacement cartridges and disposable pens in our stores. Look for options from leading brands like Green Dot Labs and Evolab, which even makes flavored concentrate cartridges.
