What You Need to Know About Cannabis Concentrates


Concentrates are a popular choice among cannabis consumers who want a more potent and faster-acting experience. They’re also a great option for medical marijuana patients suffering from ailments that require immediate relief. With the right dabbing setup, concentrates can deliver the relief you need in a matter of minutes. But, as with any new product or method of intake, it’s important to know what you’re getting into before consuming concentrates.

Generally speaking, concentrate consistency is determined by the extraction process. Solvent-based techniques like butane and CO2 extracts tend to produce waxy, glassy, or gooey concentrates. Those that are solventless, on the other hand, tend to have saucy or runny consistency and may contain additives like sweeteners or sodium for flavor profile and preservation.

Diving into Dabs: A Comprehensive Guide to Cannabis Concentrates

Waxy concentrates can be identified by their brittle texture and a glass-like appearance. The most common of these is shatter, which gets its name from the way it shatters when pressed. Shatter is amber or gold in color and can have a THC content of up to 90%.

Crushed, crumble, budder, batter, and sauce are also popular types of cannabis concentrates. These can be consumed as-is or used in conjunction with flower or a vape pen to change the terpene profile of the entire weed experience.

Typically, you can find most of these products at your favorite local dispensary. A budtender can help you decide which type of concentrate best suits your needs and answer any questions that you have.


What Are Wet Pour Surfaces?

Wet Pour Surfaces

Rubber Wet Pour Surfaces is a popular option that is used widely around children’s playgrounds. It is an innovative impact-absorbing surface that has transformed the way children play. It can be colored to create fun designs and is very durable, low maintenance and safety certified (CFH). It is also ideal for outdoor gyms, sports grounds, domestic gardens, pathways and swimming pool surrounds.

The exact mix of the material will vary depending on manufacturer but most wet pour is made from recycled SBR rubber granules that have been bound together. This is a great option as it reduces the amount of rubber going to landfill and helps to save natural resources. The granules are mixed with a soft resin like EPDM, which is then ‘poured’ onto a prepared base such as tarmac, stone or concrete to produce the final surface.

Exploring the Versatility of Wet Pour Rubber: Beyond Playgrounds

Poured-in-place rubber surfaces are very durable, springy and don’t splinter. They are easy to clean and require very little maintenance. Unlike wood chips, wet pour rubber doesn’t move as much so it remains safe around playground equipment and doesn’t become thin in high traffic areas.

This type of surfacing is highly porous, meaning it soaks up rain water very well, making it an ideal outdoor surface for the UK. This means you are less likely to get puddles and it is a lot easier to keep your surfaces looking clean as they don’t trap dirt and mud in the same way non-porous surfaces do.
