What Are Cannabis Concentrates?
Cannabis concentrate refers to a variety of different cannabis extracts and their nicknames. Don’t be overwhelmed by shatter, wax, crumble, sugar, honeycomb, sap, and oil. That’s simply the concentrate’s texture. The more important question is the solvent used and whether or not the extract is compatible with the preferred consumption method.

The Difference Between Flowers and Concentrates
While you may be tempted to stick with what you know, cannabis concentrates and extracts offer many benefits. To get you started, here’s some information about how cannabis concentrates and flowers differ:
- Potency – Potency is where cannabis flowers and concentrates differ the most. Average bud potency is normally within the 10-25% THC range, while concentrates most often fall between 50-80%. Consider starting with the lower THC content of hash and tinctures. Your local budtender at Atrium Topanga will be happy to help in your selection.
- Consumptions Methods – You can smoke, vaporize, and roll flowers. Concentrates offer more options, including dabbing, tinctures, hash, and oils.
- Simplified – Concentrates strip out the plant material. When you’re smoking flower, you’re inhaling plant material, which can have a negative impact on the lungs. The concentrate extraction process strips out plant material while isolating THC and CBD.
- Flavor – Concentrates sometimes sacrifice aromas and flavors during the extraction process. Most people consider the flavor and terpenes of flower cannabis a more enjoyable experience.
While there are pros and cons to both concentrates and flowers, what you choose is up to you and should be based on your specific needs and desires. Stop by Atrium Topanga to learn more and check out our selection of both.
