The recognizable form of cannabis flower refers to the dried and cured buds of the plant. It contains levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (cannabidiol) – two cannabinoids responsible for their respective psychoactive effects and therapeutic properties.

When purchasing cannabis flowers, individuals have options between strains primarily categorized as indica, sativa, or hybrid varieties. Indica strains provide relaxation and sedation effects, while sativa strains offer energizing and uplifting sensations. Hybrid strains combine qualities from both indica and sativa.

Consumers have choices when it comes to consuming cannabis flower: smoking it in rolled joints or pipes, vaporizing it using devices known as vaporizers or “vapes,” or incorporating it into food items called edibles.

Cannabis concentrates are extracts obtained from the plant using solvents such as butane or carbon dioxide. These extractions effectively isolate cannabinoids like THC or CBD, surpassing the capabilities of smoking methods while preserving the plant’s compounds.

Common concentrates include shatter, which resembles glass sheets broken into pieces, wax with a buttery consistency, and oil, which is in a liquid form. To consume concentrates efficiently, users utilize tools like dab rigs that resemble bongs but have a heating element designed specifically for vaporizing concentrates.
