Extracts are concentrated cannabis products made without the use of a solvent. They contain higher percentages of pharmacokinetic substances (cannabinoids & terpenes) than raw flower and allow users to ingest less undesired plant material during consumption.
The potency of cannabis extracts is a dependent upon raw plant material used in their production as well as the extraction process employed. In general, they are believed to provide a more full spectrum of active compounds than concentrates made using more intense solvent-based extraction methods.
Through chemical analysis, we can discover the exact breakdown of cannabinoids and terpenes in cannabis extracts. This complete potency profile helps doctors, patients, and recreational consumers track effects and learn which products are most useful for treating certain symptoms or achieving a desired physiological response.
