A concentrate is potent THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) concentrated substance that resembles honey or butter. It can come in different shapes, sizes, and consistencies. It can be sticky, dry, soft, hard, and many other forms.
There are different kinds of concentrates that are formed under different circumstances. Temperature, humidity, and physical impact can all influence the end product. Solid THCa is stirred to precipitate from oil, then it turns into crystals. Hash oil goes from a single-phase to a multi-phase substance and acquires an opaque color. The consistency of the concentrates is also influenced by the content of terpenes—the more of them, the more liquid is the final product.
Marijuana concentrates contain high levels of THC that vary from 40 to 80%. This type of marijuana is considered the most potent as it can be four times stronger than buds. Each kind of substance requires a tool, whether it is a universal appliance or something specific to a certain type of concentrate. It is better to invest in one multiuse tool so that you are prepared to deal with anything.
The most popular types of concentrates are shatter and wax.
Shatter is considered the purest substance among all types of cannabis concentrates. It is amber in color and resembles glass. The structure it transparent. The transparency of the pieces is achieved through a high content of terpene concentrates. If you want to use it, take a bit of the substance and heat it using your dabber so that it will melt to your tool. For safe storing and transportation, carefully wrap your shatter in parchment paper.
Wax is considered the most sticky concentrate. When you are using wax, make sure you do it with a dab tool, as using your hands in this situation will never work and will only make a mess. This substance has a sweet aftertaste. Wax is not very peculiar when it comes to storage, so you can put it in any container that you have on hand.

If you have no idea where to start, just try one and work your way through all of them—then you will be able to choose what suits you best from your own experience.
