Navigating the Rapidly Changing THC Oil Options in the Vaporizer Industry

Just like there are a ton of options in the vaporizer industry, there are many options for THC oils or concentrates that can be paired with hardware. This provides cannabis consumers with a rich palette of choices, from the robust flavors of rosin to the cutting-edge appeal of liquid diamonds. In this blog, we’ll help you navigate the options out there and understand what’s available, what’s popular, and why.

The Rise of Rosin

Rosin is a solventless concentrate praised for its purity and potency. It’s made using a simple yet effective method: applying heat and pressure to cannabis flower or hash. This process squeezes out the resinous sap from the plant material, resulting in a golden, sappy product. No chemicals, no fuss, just pure, gooey goodness.

Reasons for Rosin’s Growing Popularity

Rosin’s growing popularity is built on solid ground. The purity of rosin is a huge draw for health-conscious consumers who prefer to avoid residual solvents that can linger in other extracts. Also, this solventless method captures the full spectrum of cannabinoids and terpenes at their peak and lets the flavors and aromas of the strain truly shine through. Each inhale is as natural as it gets, free from any potentially harmful chemicals. It’s the ultimate true-to-plant experience.

Live Resin: A Strong Contender

While rosin hangs out in the spotlight, resin is still a powerhouse in the THC oil arena. Resin (particularly live resin) has carved out its own dedicated following.

Live resin refers to a specific type of resin extracted from fresh, flash-frozen cannabis plants, rather than dried and cured buds. This method preserves cannabinoids and terpenes much more effectively than other THC concentrates and oils. The extraction involves using solvents like butane or propane, but they are later purged out to make sure the final product is potent and flavorful.

resin vs rosinWhat’s the Difference Between Rosin & Resin?

The main difference between rosin and resin is the use of solvents. Rosin doesn’t use solvents, and resin does. However, while rosin is praised for its solvent-free purity, live resin is said to beat out rosin in aroma and taste profile. Additionally, live resin can often produce a more potent product than rosin, which could be another reason consumers choose resin over rosin.

The Role of Distillates in Newer Markets

The THC oil and concentrate landscape is expanding across the country as more and more states legalize cannabis. In these newer markets, you’re likely to find cannabis distillates.

Distillates are created by stripping away all materials and compounds except for the desired cannabinoids. The result is an incredibly potent, flavorless, and odorless concentrate. Terpenes are later reintroduced depending on the desired flavor profile and effects.

The ease of making distillates allows for large-scale production once set up, which is incredibly helpful for markets trying to get started. Additionally, the adaptability of the terpene profiles drives trends toward more customizable cannabis experiences.

Exploring Other THC Oil Options

Beyond the big names like rosin, resin, and distillates, the THC oil spectrum has plenty of variety. Let’s dive into some other popular THC oil and concentrate options that are spicing up the scene:

  • CO2 OIL: CO2 oil uses supercritical carbon dioxide to pull cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant. The CO2 acts like a solvent under high pressure and low temperature to isolate the desired compounds. It’s a safe and environmentally friendly method, but the equipment required is expensive, driving up the cost of the product.
  • Butane Hash Oil (BHO): BHO is made by using butane as a solvent to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant. While BHO can be potent and flavorful, the use of butane raises safety concerns if it isn’t properly purged.
  • Liquid Diamonds: Often considered the “crown jewels” of cannabis concentrates, liquid diamonds are made by extracting THCa crystals from fresh cannabis plants, which are then combined with a terpene-rich sauce. They are extremely potent and offer a full spectrum experience.
  • THCa & Live Resin Blends: THCa is the acidic precursor to THC, which is non-psychoactive until it is heated. Combining THCa with live resin enhances both the flavor and potency. These blends offer a robust terpene profile along with high cannabinoid content, appealing to both connoisseurs and medical patients looking for potent relief.
