As the array of cannabis products has expanded, high potency extracts like shatter and rosin have picked up in popularity. The effects of these high potency extracts are reportedly comparable to the pain managing effects of commonly prescribed painkillers such as Morphine, Percocet or Vicodin, minus undesirable side effects of potential narcotic addiction, constipation, hallucination, and even opioid-induced respiratory depression. Plethoras of common adverse effects make many western pharmaceutical solutions less than ideal treatments for many patients.
With recent increase in the demand for more purified natural products to help with management of acute pain and chronic ailments, producers are now creating the cleanest treatment options, to date.
Strong concentrates can be achieved using various methods of preparation, from applications of high heat and pressure to intermittent hot/cold treatments utilizing CO2, also known as Short Path Distillation. What consumers love most about solventless extracts is their fresh flavour and aromas, free of any trace amounts of residues of alcohols/butane (solvents). Plant matter is able to be completely isolated from the active components of cannabis, leaving behind only a high concentration of THC and/or CBD.
Another thing that is particularly great about solventless extracts is the variety and ease of use. We offer a wide range of solventless extracts made with premium craft cannabis grown locally in BC.
Select solventless extracts such as kief can be rolled into joints or smoked in a pipe or bong. Vape pens are available loaded with delicious CO2 extracted cannabis oil from Secret Garden. Solventless shatter, CO2 Oil and Rosin are just 3 examples of concentrates we offer that are vaporized on an oil rig or e-nail for best results. CO2 Distillate can be consumed in a number of ways and has a high THC potency.
