The Beginners Guide To Cannabis Concentrates & Waxes
The O.G. concentrate, hash has a special place in many cultures around the world. The Indian god Shiva is known for his love of cannabis. India is famed for creating Charas Hash, a finger made hash from the living cannabis plant.

Ice Water Hash
All of these styles come from separating the trichome heads from the cannabis plant. The difference here is that, as the name suggests, the plant takes a nice bath in some ice water. The temperature of the water makes the trichomes more brittle and easier to separate while the ice acts as an agitator to knock off the trichomes.
Butane/Co2/Propane Hash Oil
The consistency that popularized dabbing. This extract comes from blasting the flower with a chemical solvent that separates out the cannabinoids. The solvent is then purged out from the cannabinoids leaving a product specifically made for dabbing.

This maintains the delicate terpene profile and the potent cannabinoids present in perfectly matured plants. The result is a gooey yet delicious oil that boasts plenty of personality.
