THC Concentrates

Marijuana consumption has evolved over the years, transforming from a handful of simple methods such as smoking or ingesting to a vast and ever-changing array of ways to consume the plant.

A new mechanism for marijuana consumption includes the concentration of specific parts of the plant turned into extremely potent oils. These oils, otherwise known as THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) concentrates, possess more THC than even a large amount of good quality marijuana.

Because THC concentrates are a more concentrated form of marijuana and are able to hide easier, THC concentrates are essentially treated as different drug type from marijuana under Texas law. The laws regarding THC concentrates are much stricter, and even a slight amount of THC in your possession could net you a felony charge. If you or someone you know has been charged with possession or delivery of THC Concentrates, it is vitally important that you reach out to qualified legal representation.

What Are THC Concentrates?

THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) concentrates are a breakdown of the most valuable parts of the marijuana plant, known as cannabinoids and terpenes. The THC concentrates are put into a mixture that contains much higher concentration of THC than a regular plant naturally could. There are multiple forms in which to consume the THC concentrates such as the following:

  • Wax – One of the most common kinds of concentrates. Both oily and sticky, waxes come in many different types depending on the strain and the percentage of THC extracted.
  • Budder – A concentrate that resides somewhere in the middle between wax oils and shatter. It is a popular form of THC concentrate for its easiness of use and the powerful aromas it releases when smoked.
  • Shatter – Made with Butane Hash Oil, shatter is a hardened form of THC Concentrate more akin to glass or hard candy than any other kind of concentrate. Has some of the highest percentages of THC.
  • Crumble – Also residing somewhere in between hard and liquid, crumble is a kind of THC concentrate that resembles something like minced garlic.
