Cannabis extract is a concentrate of cannabinoids (such as THC and CBD) derived from the cannabis plant. The plant matter is typically dissolved in a solvent, such as butane, and then pressed or filtered to remove the plant material. This process results in a highly potent product that can be either consumed on its own or used as an ingredient in other cannabis products.
Cannabis extract can be produced using a variety of methods and solvents. The most common solvents used for this purpose are butane and CO2. The type of extraction method used will affect the THC levels and terpene profiles in the final product. Because there are so many different types of cannabis concentrates it’s important for consumers to be aware of the THC levels and other cannabinoids present in the product before purchasing it.
Luckily, Phenotopia in Santa Rosa carries extracts in every form and consistency you can imagine. There are solvent-based extracts such as butane hash oil and solventless extracts like ice water hash. There’s live resin and live rosin, bubble hash, wax, shatter, diamonds, sauce, diamonds in sauce, sugar, and even batter, badder, and budder. So, no matter what your preferences are, you’re sure to find an extract that suits you.

Enjoy the Convenience of Weed Extracts
Extracts are highly concentrated (that’s why they call it concentrate!). This makes them ideal for treating insomnia, chronic pain, PTSD, seizures, and more. A little goes a long way, and the effects can be felt for hours. No wonder cannabis extracts are one of the fastest-growing segments in the cannabis industry. If you’re new to concentrates, start with a small amount and see how it affects you. Some people find that certain types of extracts make them feel more anxious or paranoid, so it’s important to be aware of your individual reaction before indulging too much.
Cannabis extracts are also incredibly versatile. You can add them to your favorite recipes, use them in a vape pen, or enjoy them on their own. Generally, they come in onegram weight and various prices and potencies.
If you’re just getting into extracts, remember that they may require cold storage and should be kept in a safe, dark place. Also, make sure you have the proper tools for consuming them. A small glass jar or container and a dab tool will do the trick. Likewise, the temperature at which you vaporize your concentrate will have an effect on the taste and potency, so experiment until you find the perfect setting.
Whether you’re looking for something to help you relax or ease pain, extracts offer a convenient and potent solution.
