Although I am fairly current to the world of concentrates, I have made an effort to try out peculiar consumption methods! I’ve experimented with smokable flower, vapes, tinctures, edibles & beverages.
- I was intimidated to try concentrates! They’re produced by stripping away plant materials & leaving behind the most fancy compounds.
The cannabinoids & terpenes make concentrates especially flavorful & effective. They range between 60 & 99% THC potency while flowers are officially between 10 to 30% THC, but because of the potency, it doesn’t take particularly much to achieve the effects, but a little goes a long way. Plus, the effects last longer. There are a lot of peculiar types & textures of concentrates sold at the Muskegon dispensary. I can buy oils, shatters, hash, kief, waxes, rosin, diamonds, budder, live sauce & more. They are especially versatile. I was interested in dabbing. All of the common concentrates can be consumed through dabbing but the process requires lots of gear. I wasn’t sure I wanted to purchase a dab rig, a quartz nail or banger, a dab tool, a carb cap & a torch, and fortunately the Muskegon dispensary includes a dab bar & rents the gear, with the assistance of a knowledgeable budtender, I felt confident dabbing. The dab tool is used to scoop out a small amount of concentrate that is applied to the bottom of the banger. It’s topped with the carb cap & then the torch is used to heat the concentrate to the point of vaporization, and vapor is inhaled from the dab rig. The flavor is amazing. The effects are realized particularly abruptly.
