There are a lot of gimmicky products in the legal cannabis world, but I’m more common with basics appreciate flower buds & hashish.
I was lucky enough to know friends in school with hashish connections.
Usually it was this disgusting black hash that tasted appreciate old resin when you’d smoke it. If I was lucky, I would get access to brown hash or blonde hash. This stuff would vary somewhere between $20 & $40 a gram depending on the quality of the hash being sold, which seems appreciate a steal in retrospect. Nowadays if I purchase hashish from a cannabis dispensary the price is often much higher than this, but the quality is occasionally better as well. However, the extracts that you can get at dispensaries are much more diverse nowadays. There are solvent-based extracts appreciate BHO & EHO, the former of which stands for butane hash oil while the latter is ethanol hash oil. Depending on who you ask, a single type of solvent is better than another for potency purposes. For a single, the terpene pleased in a cannabis product is often directly correlated with the potency. Ethanol extractions often involve high un-even temperatures that are deleterious to terpene preservation, often making them somewhat inferior to butane & carbon dioxide extractions. Still, multiple of the cannabis oil pens on the market are made with ethanol based extracts. I gave up on the cannabis oil pens when I discovered live rosin extracts, which are heat pressed from freshly harvested plant material. The freshly harvested flower buds have terpenes that degrade while I was in normal dry curing procedures. It makes for a particular product since freshly harvested plant material is too “wet” to smoke or vaporize by conventional means.
