Types of CBD Concentrate: What You Need to Know

cbd concentrate

CBD is legal in nearly every state. And that’s great news for those wanting a natural remedy to anxiety, insomnia, and bodily aches and pains.

Sure you’ve heard of CBD, probably even tried it, but do you know all your options? Some CBD products are more potent than others. This means it takes less time and less CBD to feel the same effects. 

If you want a more potent CBD product, then you need to try a CBD concentrate. 

Want to try a CBD concentrate but don’t know where to start? Continue reading to learn all about the benefits of CBD, what a concentrate is, and the many forms of CBD concentrate. 

Benefits of CBD

Everyone can benefit from CBD, aka Cannabidiol. This includes you! And with CBD widely legalized and socially accepted across the US, it’s become easier to try it out.

CBD products can aid depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, insomnia, muscle recovery, and more. 

Though CBD comes from the cannabis plant, most products labeled CBD won’t get you “high” in the traditional sense. The mental high associate with cannabis is a result of CBD’s sister compound, THC.

You won’t have a mental high if you are using CBD products with less than .3% THC. CBD, instead, will relax your muscles and alleviate pain. It can also improve your mood and calm your mind.

But before partaking in any CBD product, make sure to research the correct dosage for your body. 

What is Concentrate?

CBD concentrate is a product that contains high levels of CBD. Concentrates are an easy way to quickly consume a high dose of CBD. 

Concentrates are drawn out from the cannabis plant using different extraction methods, like cO2, ice-water extraction, or a different solvent extraction method. 

The concentrate can be consumed or smoked on its own. However, they can also be infused into topical products, like lotion, or into edibles, like CBD gummies. 

Types of CBD Concentrate

CBD concentrates come in many forms. Whether you want to smoke, vape, or consume CBD orally, there is a concentrate for you. The following are a few types of CBD concentrates.

CBD Moon Rocks

CBD moon rocks are potent sources of CBD. 

A moon rock is a hemp bud dipped in CBD distillate and then rolled in Hemp Kief. This process ensures that the bud packs a punch.

To consume the CBD moon rock, you need to smoke it out of a pipe, bowl, or joint. However, don’t try to crush the bud with a grinder. You’ll end up losing valuable kief. 

CBD Isolate Crystalline

CBD isolate crystalline is a pure form of CBD. It is a powder derived from Hemp Oil. It only contains the CBD compound without any of the other cannabinoids.

CBD Isolate has many practical uses. While you can smoke it, you can also add it to food and drinks, or combine it with oil to consume as a supplement. Many are drawn to CBD powder because it is a discreet way of consuming CBD.

CBD Terp Sauce

CBD terp sauce, also known as Live resin sauce, is a thick, sticky CBD concentrate. 

Why in the world is it called terp sauce? Terp refers to the Terpenes compounds found in hemp and cannabis.

It’s the terpenes that give the plant such a strong smell. Besides the aroma, terpene content determines the type of high you get. Terp sauce is best used for dabbing.

Full Spectrum CBD Isolate

Unlike CBD isolate, full-spectrum CBD contains a range of cannabis plant extracts. This includes the vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, terpenes, fiber, and protein naturally found in the plant.

The product is very adaptable to your needs, as it can be smoked or consumed orally like other isolates. The best part? It’s very easy to control your dosage with CBD isolates.  

CBD Shatter

CBD shatter is derived from hemp using the CO2 extraction method. It’s like a traditional CBD concentrate wax, but even more concentrated. 

As the name suggests, CBD shatter breaks apart effortlessly for you to portion out how much you want to use. Use the product in a dab rig for optimal effect. 

Water Soluble CBD

If you aren’t into smoking or dabbing, then water-soluble CBD might be for you. Water-soluble CBD powder is an easy way to enjoy the benefits of CBD without any other equipment. Just mix the CBD powder into a glass of water or another beverage and start sipping.

Water Soluble CBD is like the CBD Isolate Crystalline, in the way that it can be added to food and beverages. However, the water-soluble CBD dissolves a bit easier than the Crystalline. Our water-soluble CBD even comes with a scoop to help you properly measure out your dosage. 

What Concentrate Is Best for You?

Choosing a CBD concentrate for yourself depends on a few factors. The first is how do you want to consume the CBD (smoking, dabbing, or consuming through a drink/food)? And do you like the aromatic effect of the terpenes or would you rather be more discreet?
