Extracts 101

Extracts can be significantly more concentrated than dried cannabis, pre-rolls, or edibles, and consumption methods include inhaling by smoking or vaping, or ingesting as oils or capsules. While extracts can have similar aromas and tastes as dried flower products that share the same flavour compounds, their higher concentration of cannabinoids by weight may magnify effects. That’s why it’s recommended to start low and go slow.

What are extracts?

Extracts are produced when cannabis flower is processed into a concentrated form. These products can come in several liquid and solid forms, such as oils, capsules, vape cartridges, and various concentrates (e.g. hash, shatter, wax, kief, rosin, etc.).

How do extracts work?

When cannabis extracts are inhaled, the tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC, is absorbed by the blood in the lungs and moves quickly to the brain, producing an almost immediate effect.

When cannabis extract is ingested, it can produce effects that are similar to those experienced when cannabis flower is smoked or vaped; however, the effects may be delayed due to digestion, which can take from 30 minutes up to four hours or more.

The duration of effects depend on how the cannabis extract is consumed. If it’s inhaled, effects can last one to three hours, or longer. When extract is ingested, effects can be felt for up to 12 hours. The duration of effects vary from person to person. Individual factors such as sex, mental and physical health, age, personality, genetics and even the amount of food ingested prior to consumption all play a part.
