In the wide world of concentrates, there are so many options to choose from. Everybody has their own personal taste, preference, and goals when it comes to cannabis, so it’s important to understand what you are getting out of each product you may try.
As far as processing goes, Melting Point Extracts (MPX) is an industry leader in quality concentrates. They produce everything: shatter, batter, sugar, diamonds, THCa isolate, and many more. The obvious difference in these concentrates is the consistency and look of them, however, there are much more important pros and cons to each such as THC and terpene levels.
Shatter is the perfect starting spot for anybody newly embarking into concentrates. Its consistency can be anywhere from brittle glass to play dough, making it easy to break off pieces for consumption. As far as THC levels and terpene levels go, this is the sweet middle-ground. THC is typically in the 70 or 80 percent range and terpenes are likely single digit amounts. If you aren’t sure what you like yet, this is an excellent beginning.
Batter & Sugar are typically the most commonly purchased by concentrate connoisseurs. The consistency of either is a lot of what their name suggests. Batters look like cake batter, or peanut butter. Sugar looks like a wet pile of sugar. Both consistencies generally are lower on the THC end, typically producing levels in the 60 or 70 percent range. However, they typically have far greater terpene counts, giving excellent flavor to the concentrates. If you’re seriously into concentrates, this is likely your lane.
Diamonds & THCa Isolate are the top of the line for strength – the highest concentration. Typically, these consistencies are rock-like or powdery due to being so concentrated. While there are almost no terpenes available in these products, THC levels can be as high as 99%. This is for the consumers that really are looking for something to pack a punch.
All in all, concentrates are an excellent form of cannabis to consume, especially for people that have been using cannabis for a long time and have gained a rather high tolerance. Next time you’re in a dispensary, make sure to try out some of the many MPX options available!
