What is strongest form of cannabis live resin, shatter, or wax?

Concentrate’s such as shatter, wax and live resin are made using different processes with different solvents. Extracts can range in consistency from runny to hard depending on the process used.

Shatter is an extract, made by using the “open blasting” process, which uses a closed loop system to prevent solvents from venting. Extracts made using this method are referred to as “open-blasted”. Shatter is known for its homogenous texture and clear appearance, with a consistency ranging from honeycomb to glass.

Live resin is made using fresh frozen plant, instead of plant that has been dried. Concentrates made in this manner are often high in terpenes and also retain much more flavor than their counterparts. Concentrate’s made in this way can be referred to as “live resin” or “fresh frozen”.

Wax is Concentrate’s made using the “dewaxing” process, which removes plant waxes by soaking the Concentrate in a solvent. Extracts made this way are referred to as “dewaxed”. Wax has a softer texture than shatter because it lacks plant waxes and is sometimes opaque or opaque white/yellow.

The strongest in THC from the 3 Concentrate’s listed is Live resin, followed by shatter and then wax. Extracts are much more potent than flowers due to the fact that they are made up of pure cannabinoid content. Concentrate’s can range from 50-90 percent in THC content while flowers normally contain around 20-30 percent THC.

Concentrate’s made in this manner will be hard and contain little to no terpenes – although they will retain much of cannabinoids and flavor. Extracts made without any solvent are very rare and typically sell for extremely high prices. Extracts range from 15-60 percent cannabinoid content.

What are cannabis tinctures?

Cannabis tinctures are Concentrate’s that have been infused into a solution of alcohol and water. Extracts can be made using any kind of alcohol, although glycerol is also used as a solvent for more viscous Concentrate’s such as hash oil or honey oil. Tinctures come in dropper bottles and are taken sublingually, orally or a both a and a way depending on personal preferences. Concentrates made into tinctures are normally around 50 percent cannabinoid content but this can vary depending on the solvent used.
