Pure Oasis offers a wide selection of cannabis concentrates. From kief and tinctures to THC oil and crumble wax, cannabis concentrates come in a variety of both types and potencies. Enjoying cannabis in the form of a concentrate allows users to get a stronger dose of cannabinoids. Cannabinoids are chemical components of cannabis, which include THC, the psychoactive component, and CBD, the therapeutic component.
One of the most popular ways to consume cannabis is with a battery-operated vaporizer. This is a practical and discreet alternative to smoking dry flower. Vaporizers are used in combination with THC cartridges that contain concentrated cannabis oil. As the oil does not have to be heated to the point of combustion, many users have a stronger and more clear-headed experience.
Cannabis cartridges go by several names, such as vape pens. There are also two main types of cannabis cartridges. Open-system, or refillable cartridges, usually contain between 0.5 and 1.0ML of cannabis oil and can be refilled. Closed-system, or non-refillable cartridges, are already filled when you purchase them and are designed for single use.
Live resin is a relatively new form of cannabis concentrate. This highly-aromatic concentrate delivers potency coupled with the real flavor and aroma of the marijuana plant. Cannabis resin extraction is achieved through the cryogenic freezing of a freshly-harvested cannabis plant. Known as full-spectrum, this process uses the entire cannabis plant including the branches, leaves, and stalk.
The primary difference between live resin and other concentrates is the terpenes. As the plant is immediately frozen after cutting, it is never dried or cured. As much as 60 percent of terpenes can be lost during the curing process but terpenes are preserved in live resin. This can improve aroma and flavor, as well as promote relaxation and stress-relief.
Cannabis waxes are soft, opaque oils that have lost their transparency following extraction. Agitation causes the molecules of cannabis wax to crystalize which allows it to take on various consistencies based on moisture, heat, and texture. Runnier oils contain more moisture which gives them a gooey consistency often referred to as “brudder.” Harder waxes are more brittle and can be described as “honeycomb” or “crumble”.
Cannabis waxes go by several names, such as honey oil, Butane Hash Oil (BHO) and ‘710’ which is oil spelled upside down in numbers. Most cannabis waxes are made by blasting the plant with butane and extracting the THC into a highly-concentrated resin.

As cannabis concentrates tend to be a highly concentrated form of marijuana, the effects can be physically and psychologically more intense than with regular cannabis flower use. Inhalants are the most common method for consuming cannabis concentrates. This includes vaporizers, dabs, and bowls. Some concentrates can also be found in oral forms, such as edibles and tinctures.
