What Are THC Concentrates?

Wednesday, Apr 18, 2018

THC concentrates come in various shapes, sizes and forms. There are tinctures, wax and various other forms of THC concentrate. The one most people think of when hearing the word concentrates is the type you “dab.” A dab is a single serving of hash oil typically vaporized on a hot nail. We’ll go over everything you need to know about the various forms of concentrated THC oil.

THC concentrates are any cannabis products that have a high concentration of the cannabinoid. The THC needs to be extracted from cannabis flowers or trim. There are several different methods of extraction that come in many different forms.


Before there were so many different forms of THC concentrate, there was just kief. To most cannabis consumers, kief is the powdery material found at the bottom of most four-piece grinders. Ideally, kief should be purely trichome heads. So it is unlikely that the material at the bottom of a grinder would be considered pure kief. Applying heat and pressure to kief will turn it into hash.
