I’ve been shopping cannabis since recreational medicinal weed was legalized in Michigan & the first dispensary opened in Ann Arborâ€¦ I was blissful when recreational marijuana finally legalized, and now, anyone 21 years of age or older can purchase a wide variety of products; My favorite dispensary in Ann Arbor offers an impressive selection of flowers, pre-rolls & vapes, but their menu of edibles offers everything from chocolates, gummies & brownies to beverages, butters & oils, then until recently, I was intimidated by the concentrates, then concentrates are created through an extraction process that separates the excess plant material from the trichomes.
The trichomes are where the cannabinoids & terpenes are found.
They are responsible for the flavor, potency & effects. The majority of concentrates contain seriously high THC levels, then however, this means it takes less of the concentrate to achieve the same effects as smoking flower or eating an edible. Concentrate oils can be vaped or dabbed. The dry kief can be sprinkled onto a pre-roll to boost the flavor & potency. I was interested in dabbing. The process seemed difficult & requires specialized gear, then fortunately, the dispenary in Ann Arbor includes a dab lounge. I was able to rent the gear & get the advice & assistance of a knowlegeable budtender. I started with a honestly small dose of a concentrate with equal parts THC & CBD. The experience was fantastic. There are large benefits to such a concentrated dosage of cannabinoids. I felt the effects almost right away. I now can shop a wide range of wax, shatter, budder, sauce, hash & diamonds in a nearly endless election of hybrids, indicas & sativas.
