Puffco produce a line of concentrate vaporizers that allow you to enjoy concentrates without a dabbing rig. They differ from dry herb vaporizers mainly in their heating systems. Traditional dry herb vaporizers use heating elements that use conduction or convection to vaporize the active ingredients present in herb. A concentrate vaporizer uses a heating coil similar to an e-cig, except many times more powerful. The coil instantly vaporizes the concentrate, allowing you to enjoy it without any of the toxins and tars released with combustion. Vaporizing concentrate in such a clean way also prevents wastage as none of your concentrate has the opportunity to ‘burn off’.
Concentrates are several times stronger than dry herb. A smaller amount of concentrate can contain far more THC than the equivalent amount of dry herb. Concentrate is created through a process of concentration that uses solvents like butane to force the active ingredients out of dry herb. After the butane has forced the concentrate out it is then removed from the solution by a vacuum oven. At this point the purity of the concentrate is established and the concentrate forms into one of three materials: Oil, Wax, or Shatter.
Oil, or BHO is a runny viscous substance and the least pure of all the concentrates. After oil there is wax, a more solid and sticky form of concentrate that is sometimes called honey. The final and most concentrated version of concentrate is called shatter, an amber candy like material which is brittle and easily cracks and breaks; hence the name.
Concentrates can be made in amature set ups but this is highly advised against for amateurs. The butane used in the concentration process is completely non-toxic but it is highly flammable. Misusing it can result in a dangerous explosion!
Concentrates are becoming increasingly popular among medicinal herb users. It has the potency and active effects of several joints but kicks in much faster and doesn’t subject a user’s lungs to nasty, acrid smoke in the same way joints do.
