Ever heard of distillate THC? You may have even heard this concentrated THC referred to simply as “liquid gold.” In any case, if you’ve yet to explore the world of concentrated cannabinoids, you’re in for a treat with THC in its distilled form. But first, let’s get the formal introduction out of the way.
What is THC distillate?
THC distillate is a highly purified form of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) derived from cannabis. The product itself looks like a thick oil that can be anywhere from clear to amber in color. Distillation eliminates everything from plant lipids to terpenes, and because each cannabinoid vaporizes at a different temperature, producers can easily manipulate the process to capture solely one cannabinoid. For this reason, THC distillate is a highly potent concentrate.
How to Make THC Distillate
Basically, distillates made from cannabis have been put through technical distillation using special equipment. The distillation process involves heating crude oil extracted from cannabis until it vaporizes, and then capturing those vapors and the cannabinoids in them. The beauty of distillation is the utter purity of the end product; the end result can be a translucent, viscous material with nearly 100 percent THC.
How to Use THC Distillate
THC distillate is not for the inexperienced user. The high potency of the product is unmatched by most other concentrates, which means you are going to experience a more intense high with much less product. While this does provoke a word of caution, this very attribute is one reason people prefer distillate over other cannabis concentrates. And, the oil can be used in a number of ways.
Can you smoke distillate THC?
You can vaporize distillate THC and inhale the vapors. This actually happens to be one of the most preferred methods of consumption. However, in order to smoke distillate, you will need either an e-nail or a dab rig. Some vaporizers or vape pens can also be used to vape distillate as long as they reach the appropriate temperature to cause the thick concentrate to vaporize. You can also add a drop of distillate to the cannabis flower to heighten the THC in your smoke when using a pipe or bong.
Can you eat THC distillate?
You can ingest THC distillate. In fact, distillate is a popular ingredient in a lot of commercially available cannabis edibles. It takes so little of the product to infuse an edible that the flavor is not affected and a regular recipe does not have to be manipulated much to get a consistent end result. For example, if using THC distillate to make a batch of THC brownies, the tiny amount of distillate you would mix into the batter wouldn’t have a negative impact on the consistency of the batter, the smell of the brownies, or even the flavor. Sublingual dosing is also possible—just be sure to use the tiniest amount so you don’t overdo it.
