Cannabis extracts are made by stripping cannabinoid and terpene-rich trichomes from the cannabis plant using a solvent or a mechanical process. This process creates a “concentrated” product of varying consistencies that’s free of plant material (That’s why extracts are also called concentrate!). Extracts can be vaporized using a method called “dabbing,” or they can be used as an ingredient in other cannabis products.
It’s important to note that all cannabis concentrates are not the same. Different types of cannabis extracts can be made using different extraction and refinement processes. For this reason, make sure you know your extract's THC level before you use it. For example, cold water extraction may yield a product with 75% THC, while a solvent-based extraction may yield 90% THC. That’s a big difference you will feel!
Flore carries every kind of extract, from solvent-based butane hash oil (“BHO”) to solventless extracts like ice water hash. We have live resin and live rosin, bubble hash, wax, shatter, diamonds, sauce, diamonds in sauce, sugar, and even batter, badder, and budder! It’s kind of amazing, actually. Visit Flore and see for yourself!

Enjoy the Convenience of Weed Extracts
Remember, extracts are very strong. While some weed can reach 30% THC, extracts can hit 70% or more. This is a huge benefit for medical patients that need high doses of cannabinoids to treat chronic pain, PTSD, or seizures. A little goes a long way, and the effects last for hours. For new users, try a small amount and wait to see how you feel. For some, the high doses of THC in extracts cause anxiety or paranoia. No one likes that feeling, so take your time and go slow.
Another fantastic thing about cannabis extracts is their versatility. You can add them to a recipe, as a topper on a bowl, put them in a joint, or enjoy them solo. Extracts usually come in grams and half grams, and prices vary.
Overwhelmed? We understand. That’s a lot to remember and a whole new language. Don’t sweat it. You really only need to remember one thing: When in doubt, ask your Flore budtender to help you out. That’s not that hard. It even rhymes. Visit Flore in San Francisco for all your extract needs!
