It is worth knowing that cannabis oils, concentrates, and extracts can provide you with many excellent benefits that you will not get from smoking. They are not only easy for precise dosing but also have refined flavors. Those products are focused on the finest ingredients of cannabis. You can get them in such places, as, for instance, Inyo Cannabis Dispensary.

When we talk about cannabis extracts, concentrates, and oils, we usually use it as an umbrella term that includes a variety of products, such as hash, vape oil, CBD oil, tinctures, and many more. They are derived from the cannabis flower and processed into a concentrated form, creating many types of unique variants.

Some people may wonder why they should turn to concentrates if they are okay with just using the flower as they did before. However, they should take into consideration those facts:

  • Extracts do not have to be smoked. Most users prefer to ingest or vaporize concentrates and get a smoke-free dose.
  • Extracts are refined, so the significant oils and cannabinoids are derived from the plant material and make a clean and smooth inhale (you just have to be aware which products are of the highest quality and avoid uncertain and poorly crafted ones).
  • Cannabis oils are surprisingly effective, so a smaller dose is necessary to achieve the expected result.

Popular kinds of cannabis concentrates:

  • Capsules - They are filled with cannabis-infused oil, and they are supposed to be ingested orally. You need to wait up to two hours to feel the real effects. You should start with a small dose (5 mg) and increase it gradually, if necessary.
  • Tinctures - It is a cannabis-infused oil that should be applied in drops under your tongue. You will feel the results after around 20-30 minutes.
  • Shatter, wax, dababble oils - These products are refined by a solvent, such as carbon dioxide or butane. They have a strong dose of THC, so they are very powerful and fast-acting. You should remember to use them wisely.
  • Hash - Thanks to the pressed concentration of the plant’s sticky glands, hash can be obtained. In order to achieve fast and strong effects, it should be vaporized or smoked, but you can dab it as well.

Types of cannabis oil

You should know how many cannabis concentrate products you can get, depending on the laws applied in your area. Here you have a brief overview of broad extract types:

  • CBD oil - This product is a non-intoxicating substance that is commonly used for treating many different ailments, such as chronic pain, heart problems, insomnia, anxiety, or even depression. Usually, it is sold either in capsules or as a tincture.
  • THC oil - While choosing THC, you need to be aware that they have intoxicating effects on your body. They are used medically in some conditions as well, but apart from that, they provide a user with euphoric experiences. They can be found in numerous forms, but most commonly, they are sold as solids that you can vaporize, as well as capsules or tinctures.
  • Ingestible oils - If you prefer to consume the cannabis extract with food or drinks, or in capsules, you can choose an activated ingestible oil.
  • Vaporizer cartridges - In order to benefit from cannabis also outside your home, you can choose portable vaporizer cartridges. They are easily dosed, and pair with a battery. This solution is generally like an e-cigarette, but with cannabis.

How to choose a product for beginners

You have many options to start using cannabis products. First, you have to establish what effects you are expecting. If you want to achieve an intense euphoric high, you should select an oil that includes a lot of THC. On the other hand, if you prefer to start with only a delicate, balanced high, use a product that mixes THC and CBD in equal proportions. Obviously, you may just want to achieve the therapeutic results without the high - that is also possible. All you have to do is select a variant that is high in CBD and low in THC.

If you decide on using a strong THC product from the start, keep in mind that you should dose it modestly until you identify a perfect amount for yourself. Also, remember that even really tiny amounts of cannabis can provide you with the desired effects, such as better creativity and concentration, or anxiety relief.

When you choose CBD products, there is no problem with getting too high risk, but nevertheless, the dosage is significant. One user may need a very high dose of CBD to alleviate a particular medical condition, while another can benefit from much smaller amounts.

What is more, no matter if you select a CBD or THC product, always make sure that it is of the highest quality and comes from a trustworthy provider, so that it would not be dangerous to your health.
