Learn More About Northwest Concentrates From Xtracted Laboratories

It’s a common practice for concentrate processors to offer multiple brands. Different brands are designed to appeal to different consumers. Cannabis connoisseurs have no problems spending $50 plus on a gram of cannabis oil. Many others like to take a lot of dabs, and $50 grams aren’t that cost effective. Processors realize this and they want to provide products for all kinds of customers. Xtracted Laboratories understands this. Their most popular brand is Refine and Northwest Concentrates is their economic concentrate brand.

What separates Northwest Concentrates from Refine is the starting material. To make Refine oil, Xtracted Laboratories only uses starting material that is of the highest quality. Northwest Concentrates is made with the same process as Refine, but the starting material is lower quality. Lower quality starting material doesn’t mean it’s unsaleable by any means, it just means that it doesn’t meet stringent standards required to be sealed in the Refine’s coveted blue lid. You can expect great flavors, terpene profiles, and THC percentages, depending on the strain, with each of their products.

Lower quality starting material doesn’t mean you missing out on a quality product. Northwest Concentrates usually come in a waxy crumble consistency or pure gooey sauce. Concentrate consistency will be fairly basic for the economic pricing. However, the flavor choices aren’t basic. Tiramisu, Orange, and Blueberry Cookies are all available under the Northwest Concentrates green lid. Other flavors include White Strawberry, Freddy’s Kush and Do-Si-Dos.

Cookies strains provide a terrific mix of flavors and hybrid effects. Cookies strains are bred to be as flavorful and cannabinoid-rich as possible. A combination of Face Off OG and the original GSC; Do-Si-Dos might be the most potent Cookies strains in the state. This strain has sweet kush flavors and a high that absolutely floors you. A cerebral buzz puts pressure in your head while the body high keep you moving.

Freddy’s Kush is a specialty strain from another top-shelf producer, Freddy’s Fuego. Experience Freddy’s Fuego signature kush strain in a Northwest Concentrates collaboration. Freddy’s Fuego is a creamy sauce consistency with wood, pine, and herbal flavors.

You can find Northwest Concentrates from $35 to $40 per gram, depending on the strain.

Learn More About Connoisseur Level Cannabis Concentrates

Companies like DabX, Dabstract, Oleum, Green Rush, and more creates connoisseur level cannabis concentrates. Science and legal freedom have set Washington’s concentrate market on fire. These companies specialize in isolating terpenes and cannabinoids and combine them in amazing ways. Some of the concentrate specializations coming out include THCa isolates, also known as diamonds. Live resin, terp sauce, HTE, HTFSE, delta-8, and delta-9 distillate and RSO (Rick Simpson’s Oil).

These powerful concentrates are starting to become more popular. Some cannabis users make concentrates their main mode of cannabis consumption because of the extreme effects and flavors. Some users have amassed high cannabis tolerances and cannabis concentrates get them more medicated more efficiently. Others use concentrates for medical reasons. People with extreme physical ailments will use distillates and RSO to treat pain in replacement of opioid-based medication.

RSO (Rick Simpson’s Oil)

Rick Simpson’s Oil is one of the first widely recognized cannabis concentrates. RSO is made with the medical patient in mind. RSO is usually dark in color and lacks flavors because the terpenes and flavonoids are destroyed during the extraction process. Rick Simpson used cannabis to treat post-concussion symptoms and help treat his skin cancer.

This leads him to create RSO so others could experience the healing properties of cannabis. Simpson doesn’t sell his oil. He encourages people to make their own. Making your own allows you to control the source of cannabis, dosage, and how you want to use it. Washington’s legal market makes it easy to source clean material. Brands like Emerald Jane’s sell sugar trim for purposes like RSO production.

THCa Isolates

Also known as THCa crystalline, diamonds, and rocks. THCa is the isolated precursor to THC. THCa, as it stands, is non-psychoactive. THCa must be decarboxylated to turn it into THC. That’s a scientific term for introducing heat. In this case, when the THCa hits your heated nail decarboxylation occurs, transforming it into THC as the vapor travels through your dab rig and into your system.

THCa isolates are raw cannabinoids with little or terpene content. These isolates are highly potent and regularly test upwards of 95 percent.

Live Resin/Diamonds

Live resin comes from plants that are frozen after harvest. Freezing fresh cannabis preserves the terpene profile of the plant, preserving the aromas and flavors as well. Frozen plants produce concentrates that have explosive terpene profiles and moderate cannabinoid percentages.

Live resin has become a popular extract choice because of the intense flavor associated with it. DabX and others are taking live resin one step further. Diamond mining or recrystallization is the process of turning non-decarboxylated concentrates back into crystalline structures, per EdRosenthal.com.

Live resin diamonds pack the benefits of pure terpenes and raw cannabinoids. Expect intense flavors and long-lasting cerebral highs. Dabbing live resin diamonds or terp diamonds allows for a staggering effect that is unique among dabbing experience. Isolated terpenes are volatile by nature and they combust instantaneously on a hat nail. The diamonds are much more stable and melt slowly. This front-loads all of the terps and flavor. The THCa comes once the carb cap stirs the dab, and a second inhale blasts the user with a cerebral high.

HTE (High Terpene Extracts)

HTE stands for high terpene extracts. Terpenes can be separated from cannabinoids through different methods, but DabX uses steam to separate and collect terpenes. HTE’s produce bold flavor profiles with moderate to low THC numbers.

Delta 8 & Delta 9 Distillate

THC’s full name is actually delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol. Delta-9 distillate is a viscous liquid from of THC. Delta-8 distillate is another viscous, distilled version of a commonly found cannabinoid. Delta-8 is incredibly similar to delta-9, but features its own unique properties like lower psychoactive effects and potential cancer-fighting properties, according to Leafly.

Polar Icetract’s Purple Punch Hash Rosin Review

The Purple Punch strain is the result of breeding Larry OG with Grandaddy Purple. Polar Icetract’s Purple Punch hash rosin is a smashing grape smelling indica that has strong floral notes reminding me of dryer sheets. A neatly pressed rosin coin is always a sight to be had. They’re almost a shame to smoke.

Hash rosin is best left in the freezer until needed. This keeps it pliable, almost like Play-Doh. I tore off a piece with fingers, rolled it into a string a stuck it to my dabber. My fingers weren’t sticky in the least bit.

It tasted like strong floral notes and the high was indica through and through. My eyes were hard to open, breathing slowed, time itself seemed to slow down. Not long after a couple dabs, I was on the couch falling asleep with a book in my hand.

A Real Review of Refine’s Circa 97 Dutch Live Resin

Refine’s live resin never lasts long in my head stash. It’s always full of terpy goodness with a clean and long lasting high. Clean concentrates start with clean flower. Refine pairs with many great cannabis producers, but their collaborations with Green Valley Society are always my favorite.

Circa 97 Dutch is some kind of Dutch Treat phenotpye. Pop off the lid and Dutch Treat’s signature fuel and haze aroma pours out, but with more lemon and pine notes. Those pine and lemon notes follow through the flavor as well.

The high is a clear headed and long lasting. It is a bit mind racy, but if you’re a heavy dabber you could easily dab this and go about your to-do list. If you’re new to concentrates take little dabs or else you might fall into a vortex of your own thoughts for a few hours. I know many people don’t like potent head highs, but I’m a fan and this live resin delivers one with delicious aromatics and flavor.
