A Comprehensive Guide to Choosing the Best Cannabis Products
THC Flower, Edibles, Live Resin, Distillate – What Does It All Mean!?
The cannabis industry has grown by leaps and bounds in recent years. AKA: consumers now have an enormous variety of cannabis products to choose from. From more traditional ways of consuming cannabis, such as smoking and edibles, to newer options like drinks, topicals, vaporizers, live resin, and distillates, it can be a confusing world for anyone – whether you’re a cannabis expert, or a total newcomer. So we put together this handy guide to help you make sense of the ever-expanding list of choices.
THC edibles are foods that are infused with THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. Popular forms of edibles include gummies, chocolates, mints, and more. THC edibles can be a good choice for those who don’t want to smoke, but they also come with drawbacks. Chief among these is unpredictable onset time and duration of effects. Effects can take a while to kick in – anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours, and they can last for many hours. Because of the unpredictable nature of edibles, if you’re going this route, it’s a good idea to start with a low dose and wait for the effects to take hold before consuming more. How long that onset and duration will be, however, is anyone’s guess.
Live resin is a type of cannabis concentrate that is made from fresh plants that have been flash-frozen immediately upon harvest in order to preserve the plant’s active compounds. The raw material is then put through a solvent extraction process using butane, propane, or another solvent. This process helps to preserve the plant’s natural terpenes, which give the live resin its unique flavor and aroma. Live resin is a popular choice among cannabis connoisseurs for its high potency and rich flavor. It is typically used in a dab rig or vape pen.
A THC vaporizer is a portable device that is used to vaporize cannabis, usually in the form of a concentrated oil or wax. These can also be referred to as a THC vape or THC vape pen. THC vaporizers can be a convenient option for anyone who wants to consume cannabis discreetly. They’re available in a wide variety of sizes and styles and can be used with either pre-filled cartridges or refillable tanks. Many people prefer vaporizers as an alternative to smoking cannabis, but consumers should be aware that the safety and potentially adverse health effects of vaping are not well documented.
THC flower is the dried and cured flowers of the cannabis plant. It is the most traditional form of cannabis and is typically smoked in a joint, pipe, or bong. THC flower has a wide range of potency levels, flavors, and aromas. Although many consumers still prefer smoking over other forms of cannabis, the adverse effects of smoking are potentially serious. Consumers who smoke THC flower should do so cautiously, as potency can vary dramatically, and it can be difficult to gauge the quantity being consumed.
Distillate THC is a highly-purified form of THC that is created through a distillation process. It is a versatile form of cannabis that can be used in a variety of products, including edibles, drinks, and vaporizer cartridges. Distillate THC allows for very precise measurement of the active compounds present in the final product. Cann Social Tonics’ drinks contain distillate THC and CBD, which allows for a consistent and predictable microdose in every can.
THC drinks are becoming increasingly popular as a social and convenient way to consume cannabis. Unlike THC edibles, THC drinks have a fast onset and predictable duration. This makes THC drinks – especially microdosed options like Cann Social Tonics – a fun and approachable option for cannabis newcomers, as well as a sessionable alternative for cannabis experts.
