What Are Concentrates
Botanicals concentrates have all of the desirable compounds — cannabinoids and terpenes — of the plant with none of the excess impurities and plant material that come with straight flower. Concentrates are made one of two ways: either physically separating the trichome from the plant by shaking or pressing; or by using a solvent to extract the trichome.
Some common types of concentrates on the market today:
What is an Extract
While all extracts are concentrates, not all concentrates are extracts. The primary difference is in how the trichomes of the botanicals plant are collected. Extracts are generally made by using a solvent to extract the trichomes from the plant. Extracts are typically made by producers who want to extract certain components of the botanicals plant for different purposes. CBD, CBN, or THC-A, are extracted for different medical applications without the psychoactive effects, while high-THC extracts can be produced for both their recreational uses and medicinal benefits
