Types of Concentrates at Prime ATC
Below are the types of cannabis concentrates that we offer at Prime ATC. If you want to see what products we have available, or if you want to place an order, check out our menu.
Decarboxylated Oral Syringe
The decarboxylated oral syringe is a highly concentrated cannabis oil that can be used for making homemade edibles or other infused products. The oil has been decarboxylated so heat is not required to activate the THC. You can mix the oil from the syringe with butter or cooking oil and add it to a recipe. See our “How To Use Oral Syringes” handout to learn more.
Vape cartridges are pre-filled devices that contain refined and concentrated cannabis oil. The cartridge is placed onto a rechargeable battery that powers the heating element contained in the cartridge, which then vaporizes the cannabis oil for easy inhalation. Cartridges are a great product for those who may be looking for a discreet method of consumption, ease of use, or portability.
Kief is a solventless concentrate that is produced through the physical separation of trichomes from the cannabis flower. After separation, the resulting material is then refined by sifting the trichomes through fine micron screens. Kief can be sprinkled on top of a bowl or incorporated into a pre-roll to increase desired effects and impart additional flavors.
Bubble hash is a solventless concentrate that can be combined with cannabis flower to increase its potency. To produce bubble hash, we begin by submerging and agitating cannabis in ice water. This separates the trichomes, which contain high concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes. We then use screens to collect the trichomes, and the resulting material has a fluffy, sand-like consistency. Bubble hash tends to be higher in cannabinoids than kief but may be used in the same manner.
Budder is an extract that is created by rinsing dried cannabis flower with a solvent (Prime uses ethanol). The resulting solution is then processed to remove the solvent, leaving behind the desired cannabinoids and terpenes in high concentration levels. During this process, the resulting concentrate is whipped to create a buttery texture and consistency, hence the name “budder.” It can be vaporized directly out of our containers with the use of a vapor straw.
Shatter is created by rinsing dried cannabis flower with a solvent. The resulting solution is then processed to remove the solvent, leaving behind the desired cannabinoids in high concentration levels. The resulting concentrate is placed into a vacuum oven to further the refinement process and deliver the crisp, clear pieces of concentrate known as shatter. It is easy to use with an electronic vaporizer, vapor straw, or glass rig.
Diamonds are also created by rinsing dried cannabis flower with a solvent. The resulting solution is then processed, leaving behind a high concentration of cannabinoids. During this process, the resulting concentrate sits and crystalizes over a long period of time. The end result is that THCA forms “diamonds,” which are an easy texture for consumers to work with. Diamonds tend to be higher in THCA and lower in terpenes than other concentrates.
THCA isolates are extracted using solvents, and then heat and pressure are applied to create the final product. Since isolates are nearly pure concentrations of cannabinoids, there will be very few terpenes. Isolates may be consumed in the same manner as a shatter or budder. They can also be mixed with flower in the same manner as kief.
