Cannabis extracts entail a wide category of products that includes any extract of the cannabis plant, including extracts from marijuana and hemp. These extracts contain high levels of cannabinoids like CBD and THC, much higher by weight than the dry cannabis flowers, leaves, or stems. Hemp extracts will contain higher levels of CBD, while marijuana extracts have higher levels of THC. The high concentrations of cannabinoids in cannabis extracts mean that one can vape less and less often than if one were to smoke dry flowers. Cannabis extracts are created by passing a solvent through finely ground cured or fresh cannabis material, including the flower, leaves, and stems. When made with fresh flowers, extracts are sometimes called live resin. Common solvents include safe choices like CO2 or solvents like butane, hexane, and more that can be toxic if not properly purged from the extract. Marijuana extracts can also be made by hot pressing fresh or dry marijuana buds, allowing the flower’s oil to squeeze out.
