As the cannabis industry grows and transforms, so is cannabis culture and the various tools and methods of ingestion available to consumers. One of the more popular methods of ingestion today involves vaporizing concentrates, which involves a special process of extraction that intends to isolate the resin-bearing trichomes from other plant matter. As whaxy explains, the reason for isolating trichomes is that "trichomes contain all cannabinoids and terpenes and, thus, are the essence of the plant, providing all medical and recreational (psychoactive) value."

Cannabis consumers prefer consuming concentrates because they offer healthy alternative for inhaling marijuana. Because most of the plant matter is removed and the trichomes are isolated, concentrates are considered to be a much purer substance. Concentrates are also considered a more potent product, so while consumers need to use the substance with caution, they offer a more efficient and productive vaping or smoking session. This is especially valuable for medical marijuana patients.

Whaxy explains everything you need to know about cannabis concentrates, explaining in great detail the different forms of concentrates (like cannabis oil, solvents, kief, classic hash, water hash, butane hash oil, CO2 oil, and live resin) as well the different methods and tools used for ingestion (like dabbing using rigs, skillets, nails, and bangers).
