FAQ:

  • Rosin vs Resin what’s the difference?

Rosin is a solventless extract, meaning it uses no chemicals for extraction.  Resin is an extract, it uses butane to extract the cannabinoids, this is a solvent based extract.

  • Extracts vs Concentrates what’s the difference?

Weed Extracts use chemicals or solvents to take the cannabinoids and terpenes out of the plant.  

Cannabis Concentrates are solventless, meaning they use natural processes like heat and pressure to take the cannabinoids and terpenes out.

Weed Extracts

Cannabis Extracts use SOLVENTS for extraction

 

Cannabis Extracts are products extracted from the cannabis plant with a solvent.  A solvent is a liquid used to flush out the desirable traits such as cannabinoids like THC or CBD and terpenes, the element giving your cannabis it’s unique fragrance.  Popular cannabis extracts include shatter, live resin, wax, THCA diamonds and more detailed below.

Resin

  • BHO Extract

What is resin? Cannabis resin is a substance that's naturally produced in the trichomes of the cannabis plant. This natural substance contains many of the active compounds that cannabis is known for, including tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the primary psychoactive component of the cannabis plant.

What is weed wax? Marijuana wax refers to a potent cannabis concentrate that has been agitated during the extraction process, causing the oil to crystallize and solidify. The consistency and texture of wax can range from gooey or creamy, referred to as budder, to something harder and flaky, known as crumble or honeycomb. Higher-quality waxes tend to be softer and amber-toned. Buy wax online at Supherbs for same day delivery in Calgary and surrounding areas, or express post across Canada.

Rick Simpson Oil (RSO)

  • The highest in terpenes. Flash frozen buds cured in a cold room then exposed to heat + pressure

RSO is an oil made by washing cannabis buds with a solvent, such as pure light naphtha, and then boiling off the solvent leaving behind the oil. RSO is not a branded product. That means there's no one "Rick Simpson Oil" for sale. On his website, Simpson explains how to make his namesake oil. But he does not sell a version of the oil for profit.

THCA Diamonds

  • Nearly 0 terpenes. Pure THCA which turns into THC upon exposure to heat

What are weed diamonds? THCA is THC acid, the precursor to THC, the most abundant and intoxicating cannabinoid found in cannabis. When exposed to heat, non-intoxicating THCA converts to intoxicating THC and produces that classic cannabis high. Diamonds are another term for the crystalline structures that form in sauce, a cannabis concentrate with high levels of terpenes and a runny texture. Put two and two together and you get a term for the THCA-rich crystals that form in sauce. Buy THCA Diamonds online in Canada at Supherbs for quick same day delivery in Calgary.

Terp Sauce

  • High in terpenes

What is terp sauce?  Terp sauce is a type of high-terpene full-spectrum extract (HTFSE) that is composed of a thick, liquid solution of terpenes and diamond-like formations of cannabinoids, such as THC and CBD.

Cannabis concentrates are cannabis products made from the desirable traits of the cannabis plant like cannabinoids like THC and CBD and terpenes, the element that gives your weed it’s unique smell.   These are taken out of the plant with water, ice, heat, or other processes that don’t require a solvent or chemical to remove them.  These are also known as solventless extracts or concentrates.

Rosin

  • Heat + pressure

What is rosin? Rosin is a sticky cannabis concentrate made by applying heat and pressure to plant material. As a solvent-free form of concentrate, it differs from its cousin resin, which is made by passing a chemical solvent through harvested cannabis.

The technique can also be used to turn a lower-grade hash into a concentrate that can be dabbed.  Buy rosin online in Canada at Supherbs for quick same day delivery.

Hash Rosin

  • Hash exposed to heat + pressure

What is hash rosin? Made with no more than water, heat, pressure, and a few tools, hash rosin has become one of the most prized forms of cannabis resin today. Most hash rosin is made by squishing ice water hash instead of flower at the right temperature and pressure levels for yields that fail to rival solvent extractions. It also requires high-quality and properly maintained starting material to match the flavor and melt-quality of something made with hydrocarbon solvents.

Cold Cure Hash Rosin

  • The highest in terpenes. Flash frozen buds cured in a cold room then exposed to heat + pressure

What is cold cure hash rosin? Cold curing minimizes the degradation and evaporation of terpenes during the curing process, which is an advantage over the exposure to heat with a warm cure. Stability of the rosin is often the goal with cold curing, meaning to create an even consistency and baddery texture that doesn’t separate over time.  buy cold cure hash rosin online at Supherbs.

Bubble Hash

What is bubble hash? Bubble hash is made with water, ice and bubble bags to make bubble hash. The weed is agitated with the water and ice to get all the delicious trichomes to fall off. They are then filtered through the micron bags. Depending on the grade, the colour can change. As a general rule, the lighter the colour of the bubble hash, the better it is! The better it has been filtered, the less plant material that ends up inside the final product. What remains is a pretty decent solventless hash product.

What’s in my Vape Cartridge?

510 thread and disposable vape cartridges are filled with a variety of different extracts and concentrates, some are higher quality than others, it just depends what you’re into.  Let’s run through a number of the core differences.

THC Vape Carts Made With Solvents

Typical vape carts are made with cannabis oil, distillate and sometimes shatter.  Sometimes these cartridges will use a base to make the cannabis extract more liquified, either with added liquid terpenes or other oil based products.  These are the lower tier of vape cartridges, but they’re still tasty, get you high and give you new flavors to choose from.  With added terpenes you can really make your weed vape cartridge taste like anything you desire.

Popular Types of Cannabis Vape Cartridge’s:
  • Oil Vape Carts
  • Distillate Vape Carts
  • Shatter Vape Carts

Solventless Vape Carts 

 

Solventless vape cartridges use no solvents or chemicals in the extraction process and provide a premium vape experience in comparison to anything else on the cannabis market.  Solventless concentrates produce a small yield but an organic premium end product that is high in natural terpenes and cannabinoids.  This is the creme of the crop so to speak.

Popular Types of Solventless Vape Cartridges:

  • Rosin Vape Carts
  • Live Rosin Vape Carts
  • Hash Rosin Vape Carts
  • Cold Cure Live Rosin Carts

Other Types of Cannabis Extractions

 
 

Isolate Extractions: Isolated extractions are those that separate a specific element – Such as THCA. In an isolated extraction, you will find a lack of terpenes but a focus on high percentage of CBD, THC or other cannabinoids. That means that these extractions lack flavor and smell, but pack a punch in the cannabinoid profile.

TLDR: These hold high cannabinoid % and low to no terpene profile.  An example of a isolate extraction product would be THCA Diamonds.
 

Full Spectrum Extractions:  Full spectrum extracts are those that posses a cannabinoid and terpene profile.  Think of a cannabis bud as made up of cannabinoids and terpenes.  Only so many of each can fit.  Whereas in an isolated extraction this is purely cannabinoids, full spectrum extractions hold a ration of terpenes and cannabinoids, and these are the extractions that are said to hold the most therapeutic benefits.

TLDR: These extractions posses a more distributed profile, flavor and strength.  Expect a balance of cannabinoids and flavors.
