The Complete Cannabis Concentrate Guide

While it is true that marijuana concentrates have only recently hit the mainstream, it is believed that they have been used for over 12,000 years! Historians now suggest that this powerful form of weed was used in the Chinese Steppe Mountains numerous millennia ago. Most people refer to concentrates as ‘hash,’ but in reality, this highly potent cannabis is a far cry from the dark-colored bricks smuggled into North America and Europe from places such as Morocco.

As you should probably glean from the name, ‘concentrates’ are types of marijuana with an extremely high THC content. It is normal for a concentrate to have at least 70% THC, and some have up to 90%. It should go without saying that caution is necessary when using it because it only takes a small amount to achieve the desired effect.

We will discuss proper dosing a little later but first, let’s take a look at some of the most popular concentrate types and analyze how they are created.
