Cannabis concentrates aren’t going anywhere. This segment of the market – which includes waxes, shatters, hash oils, rosins, tinctures, and more – is expanding at lightning speed, and may give us the most compelling vision of the future of cannabis consumption. That said, there’s still a lot we don’t know about extracts.
To tap into the knowledge that’s currently out there, we pulled together a panel of five top experts in the field to weigh in on concentrates:
- Mitch Earleywine (NORML);
- Mark Williams (Firefly);
- Dani Geen (Harborside Health Center; Dabbing for Wellness);
- Robert Ferguson (Jetty Extracts);
- Lauren Salgado (Mother Load Extracts; Johnny Apple CBD).
We asked them to speak to a wide variety of questions regarding concentrate use, including what consumers should consider when choosing between flower and concentrates, why vaporization works well for consuming both, and whether it’s possible to approximate a full-plant experience using extracts. Here’s what they had to say.
