A CBD concentrate is a product that contains higher CBD levels than those typically found in the cannabis plant.

CBD is non-intoxicating and does not lead to a ‘high’ feeling that people associate with cannabis usage. This high comes from THC, which is another cannabinoid in the cannabis plant. Therefore, even with higher CBD dosages from concentrates, they will not affect a person in the same way.

Some people choose CBD concentrates for their purity of ingredients. When a manufacturer carries out the process correctly, there should be no residue or trace chemicals left behind in the concentrate.


Crystal or powder: Pure CBD isolate contains virtually nothing but the crystalline CBD compound, and comes in a powdery form.


Wax: Wax is a slightly darker, oily substance, generally for dabs or vapes. It has other compounds in the concentrate, such as the waxes and sterols from the plant.


Crumble: A similar substance as the wax concentrate, but contains moisture, to create a crumbly, less sticky texture.


Shatter: Shatter looks similar to hard toffee or opaque glass. When heated, it melts and bubbles, and has a thick, honey-like texture.


Live resin: Flash-freezing buds before extraction allows for a larger amount of terpenes and cannabinoids to be in the final product. Many people who seek broad-spectrum or full-spectrum CBD products will choose live resin concentrates for their enhanced flavor. However, they are also limited and tend to be expensive.


Budder: The manufacturers purge the extract at a higher temperature and air pressure in the final stage. This adds a fluffy texture to the waxy concentrate, similar to butter.

Some CBD concentrates, specifically full-spectrum varieties, may contain small amounts of THC. While this will not get a person high, it may show up on a drug test.

CBD concentrates are relatively high doses of CBD, and therefore may not be suitable for everyone.

Some people may have reactions to these higher CBD doses, such as sluggishness or sleepiness.

Anyone unsure about whether CBD concentrates would benefit them should talk to their doctor to explore their options.


 

Hemp-derived CBD products with less than 0.3% THC are legal federally but still illegal under some state laws. Cannabis-derived CBD products, on the other hand, are illegal federally but legal under some state laws. It is advisable to buy CBD concentrates only from Chow420, because Chow420 automates your compliance with state laws.
