BUDTENDER A person who serves customers at an establishment where marijuana is sold.
BUTANE A flammable hydrocarbon gas that is a constituent of petroleum and is used in bottled form as a fuel. It is a memeber of the alkane series.
DAB A dab is when you take a consnentrate (ie. wax, shatter, rosin, oil) and place it on a very hot metal or quartz surface called a nail and inhale the vapor. The vapors, being derived from a concentrate will be much stronger potency than the smoke of vapor from traditional cannabis flowers.
EDIBLE THC is metabolized by the liver, which converts it to 11-hydroxy-THC. This active metabolite is particularly effective in crossing the blood-brain barrier, resulting in a more intense high. Inhaled THC undergoes a different metabolic process, because rather than passing through the stomach and then the liver, the THC travels directly to the brain. This is why the effects of smoked or vaporized cannabis comes on faster and diminishes quicker.
HASH An extract of the cannabis plant containing concentrations of the psychoactive resins.
KIEF Refers to the resinous trichomes of cannabis that may accumulate in containers or be sifted from loose, dry cannabis flower with a mesh screen or sieve.
OIL Hash oil is produced by solvent extraction of cannabis or hash. After filtering and evaporating the solvent, a sticky resionous liquid with a strong herbal odor (remarkably different from the peculiar odor of hemp) remains.
ROSIN Rosin refers to an extraction process that utilizes a combination of heat and pressure to nearly instantaneously squeeze resinous sap from your intial starting material. With cannabis, this method is incredibly versatile in that it can either be used with flowers or to clean up hash and kief into a full-melt hash oil
SHATTER Shatter is a commonly-used term to refer to the type of concentrate that shatters just like glass does if it is dropped or tapped.
TINCTURE A solution. Usually oil or alcohol based, that have concentrations of CBD and/or THC in them. Alcohol based tinctures will affect you sublingually, meaning that enter the bloodstream through your mouth and can take effect almost immediately. Oil based tinctures will have some sublingual benifit but the majority will be processed through the body ina similar way that edibles are; taking a little longer to feel the effects of the medicine.
WAX Is any oil that concentrates the plant's chemical compounds like THC and CBD. This is achieved through a variety of extraction processes and solvents. Advancements in extraction technology have enabled the use of solvents, Carbon Dioxide and pure hydrocabons in a process that utilizes pressure in a safe closed-loop supercritical system. The end product is highly potent oil varying consistencies most popularly used for vaporization and dabbing.
