What are cannabis concentrates and extracts?
Although the same terms are often used interchangeably, there is a distinction between the two. An extract is a type of concentrate that is produced by using a solvent; whereas, concentrates can be made without using a solvent, and by other means which use physical or mechanical methods to gather and remove trichomes.
When you look at extracts and concentrates, it’s not always easy to tell them apart.
What are the differences between concentrates and extracts?
An extract is a type of cannabinoid product that is made with either CO2, pressure, and high-heat or by using a hydrocarbon-based solvent that extracts the cannabinoids from the plant.
