Cannabis concentrates are available in a wide array of forms such as oils, wax, glass, shatter, and oral tinctures. Basically, cannabis concentrates are any form of concentrates that are obtained through an extraction process.
During extraction, solvents such as hydrocarbons like butane, CO2, or ethanol are utilized to extract cannabis concentrates from marijuana plant material. Some extraction processes also use hexane or propane.
After the extraction process, the cannabis concentrate that remains normally has very high levels of terpenes and cannabinoids such as tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Some cannabis concentrates contain levels of 80 per cent or greater THC.
