What Are Medical Marijuana Concentrates?

Cannabis oils, concentrates, and extracts, are umbrella terms that refer to any product derived from cannabis flower that is processed into concentrated form. Concentrates will generally be dominant in THC or CBD, or possibly a combination of both (depending on the strain and process used for extraction).

Cannabis concentrates will be much more potent when compared to flower. In Ohio, the THC limit on flower maxes out at 35%, while cannabis concentrates are allowed up to 70% THC content. For this reason, cannabis concentrates are suggested for those patients that are veteran cannabis users, and have developed a significant tolerance to THC. There are some specific conditions, such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, and any type of wasting syndrome, that will also benefit from cbd concentrates.

Generally speaking: for a potent and euphoric high, look for high-THC products; for a balanced and gentle high, try to find a product with an equal mix of THC and CBD; and for therapeutic relief without the high, you’ll be looking for high-CBD, low-THC products.
