Cannabis Concentrates

When you want to enjoy the benefits of cannabis without smoking, cannabis concentrates are a great way to start. Concentrates offer a high percentage of THC and can be used in different ways. You can spray dab them on, or even add them to food and drink. In this guide, we’ll show you how to make your own cannabis concentrates at home.

What is Marijuana Concentrate?

The term “cannabis concentrate” is used to define a wide range of products. In general, cannabis concentrates are created by extracting cannabinoids, terpenes, and other desirable compounds from the cannabis plant. The end product is a potent blend that contains a higher concentration of these compounds than you would find in plant material alone.

There are many ways to make cannabis concentrates. The most popular methods include:

Solvent-based extraction:

This method uses a solvent like butane, propane, or CO2 to remove cannabinoids and other compounds from plant material. Ideally, the solvent is then removed from the mix, leaving behind a pure concentrate. However, some residual solvent may remain in the final product.

To make cannabis concentrates using this method, you will need:

• Cannabis trim or bud
• A solvent (butane, propane, CO2, etc.)
• An extraction tube or a closed loop system
• A collection jar


1. Fill your extraction tube or closed loop system with trimmings or cannabis buds.

2. Add the solvent to the tube or system.

3. Turn on the extractor and let it run until all the plant matter is dissolved.

4. Collect the concentrate in a jar.

5. Evaporate the solvent by placing the jar in a water bath or vacuum oven.

6. Enjoy your cannabis concentrate!

Extraction of rosin:

Extraction of Rosin

This method uses heat and pressure to extract the desired compounds from plant material. Rosin is a type of cannabis concentrate made using this method. To make rosin, you will need:

• Cannabis trim or bud
• A hair straightener or rosin press

1. Preheat your hair straightener or rosin press.

2. Place a small amount of cannabis garnish or bud on a piece of parchment paper.

3. Fold the parchment paper over the cannabis, making sure it is completely enclosed.

4. Place parchment paper in hair straightener or rosin press and apply pressure.
