Cannabis concentrates often including extracts that are highly-concentrated and ultra-potent compared to flowers.  Cannabis concentrates are becoming an increasingly popular way to consume the holistic plant but there can be pros and cons to consider before venturing out from the usual flower or edible consumption.

Types of cannabis concentrates:

The terms extract and concentrate are general terms that cover many different forms including sauce, crumble, badder/batter, shatter, wax, rosin, hash, live resin, diamonds, oil, etc. These terms typically refer to the texture of the concentrate, solvent or solvent-less as well as the method of consumption.


Batter & Badder – Closely similar to wax but they include more whipping, which results in a softer, fluffier consistency.
Sauce – a wet concentrate with a high terpene potency added to isolate crystals to improve their taste, smell, and effects.
Crumble – a powdery or crumbly concentrate. Crumble can be smoked on its own.
Wax –  whipped during production to incorporate air into the concentrate.

How to smoke and dab concentrates

Dab rig – The most common concentrate smoking method is dabbing from a rig. A “rig” is a glass/silicone, bong-like water filtration used commonly when smoking. There is a glass or metal bit on one side of the rig that gets heated with a torch.

Nectar collector – A nectar collector is a glass/silicone straw-like dabbing tool. Nectar collectors are fast, fun, and easily portable.

Vape pen – quickly becoming a more popular dab smoking technique. This method includes using a cartridge containing cannabis concentrate and a battery for heating. Weed vapes are small, discrete, and easy to use.
