What is BHO?
BHO extractions come under many names, which just describe their consistencies. Shatter, wax, budder, sap, sugar, snap n’ pull, and many more. At THC Farms, we make concentrates in all the above consistencies. What is most important and often overlooked is this simple fact. Every strain of marijuana smoked, vaped, dabbed or eaten, gives the user a different body/mind experience. When a strain is made into a concentrate, the users mind/body experience is specific to that marijuana strain, only far more concentrated.
De-Bunking some of the myths about concentrates
Myth: Clearer concentrates are better.
Consumers tend to think that the best and highest priced concentrates are very clear, in many cases, so clear that you can see right through them. With a glass-like consistency and transparency, shatter is an impressive specimen to behold, but what is the scientific basis of its superiority?
Although the look of the concentrate might influence a purchase, clarity is not everything. Some of the best concentrates are darker because they have retained more of the terpenes and other compounds that provide wonderful tastes and smells.
Myth: Quality Begins and Ends in the Extraction Lab
While the use of pure solvents and medical-grade extraction equipment are cornerstones of quality concentrates, the full story extends all the way back to the garden. The quality of the concentrate will vary dramatically based on the quality of the marijuana. If the marijuana has pesticides, neem oil, topical treatments and more, then the quality of the concentrate will be affected.
THC Farms is a Pure Water Grow Farm. We start with the best plant material and we end up with the best concentrates. It’s that simple.
Myth: It’s All About the THC
This myth is relevant to patients, adult consumers, and processors alike. There is much more to concentrates than their THC content.
Before the State of Washington started regulating marijuana, the most critical factor in buying concentrates might have been the removal of the solvent residue. All concentrates now sold in Washington must be lab tested and pass many critical tests, the removal of solvents being one of them. All concentrates now sold are very safe.
Terpenes, or the aromatic oils secreted by the plant’s trichomes, provide cannabis and its extracts with distinctive smells and flavors. Not only that, terpenes modulate other compounds in cannabis for a more therapeutic effect. If extracted properly, the aroma of concentrate will have some of the same qualities of the flower used to make it.
Retailers and consumers are still largely concerned with that THC figure. In the scientific community, it is well known that no normal user can’t tell the difference between 50% THC and 75% THC.”
The difference between concentrates, those with a rich diversity of compounds, is often detectable in the flavor, psycho-activity, and medical efficacy. In a phenomenon known as the “entourage effect,” all components of the cannabis plant work together synergistically, and trust us, this makes for a more impressive product than those that only reach for THC’s ceiling.
People who are passionate about concentrates understand that there is medical value in pure, potent concentrates. High quality oils will be rich in cannabinoids and terpenes, and cannabis compounds that deliver a diversity of medical effects too numerous to list.
