Decarbing Wax

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 25 April 2022 in Canna Blog

When it comes to cannabis cooking, most people likely think of using cannabis flower. Typically, you grind it up and "decarb" it in the oven. From there you can add it to food directly or make cannabutter.

But the same can be done with wax concentrates. You may have some extra laying around, not being dabbed. Before it gets old and loses potency, you can repurpose your wax.

With activated concentrates, you can make some powerful pot brownies or weed cookies.

But you may have questions about decarboxylation.

What is decarbing? We'll explain the process below.

Does your dab wax necessarily need decarbing? Usually, but not necessarily.

How do you decarb dab concentrates? It’s not hard, as we’ll show below.

And, before we go, you’ll see how you can save on concentrates for dabbing or decarbing.

decarbing weed

What Is Weed Decarbing?

Raw weed and wax concentrates need to be activated. When smoking or dabbing, that is done with high heat. Either fire is put to ground leaf or a dab nail is heated for wax.

The purpose behind this is to chemically change the THCA in cannabis to THC. THCA is the chemical in pot plants. THC is the molecule that reacts with your body’s endocannabinoid system.

THC is what gets you high.

Eating raw weed or wax won’t really do anything for you. But when you heat that marijuana material, then it becomes psychoactive. Then you get the buzz and the benefits.

This works for all the cannabinoids in hemp or marijuana. CBD also has to be activated to be effective. Terpenes in plant material boost the effects of cannabis. They also benefit from heating.

All the best benefits from cannabis come from a chemical reaction that begins with heat.

Does Cannabis Wax Need to Be Decarbed?

Now, all this doesn’t mean that every weed product needs decarbing. Usually, it does, but some marijuana and hemp consumables come already decarbed. Some of them are manufactured that way.

Edibles are obviously made for eating and thus must be made with decarbed cannabis. Tinctures and isolates are also pre-activated for immediate use. Topicals also have usable cannabinoids as part of their ingredients.

Obviously, not everything can be used in making ganja goodies. But some products come decarbed for immediate oral or topical use.

Which ones are already active? Let’s see.

Waxes That Are Already Active

FECO, RSO, distillate, and CO2 oil all are already decarbed. That’s because they are cooked on high heat during their creation.

What are they?

FECO is full extract cannabis oil. It is similar to RSO. However, it uses grain alcohol or ethanol for extractions. Whereas RSO uses isopropyl rubbing alcohol.

Just like RSO, it is generally sold in syringes for dispensing sublingually. That means you put it in your mouth, under your tongue. Being activated, it absorbs through your mouth lining directly into your bloodstream.

RSO is more widely known. RSO is Rick Simpson Oil. This cannabis concentrate was devised by an engineer who used it to treat his own cancer. It too comes in a syringe for direct oral use.

Distillate is a liquid concentrate that is pure cannabinoid. There are both THC and CBD distillates.

Similarly, CO2 oil is a pure cannabinoid concentrate. It uses carbon dioxide in the extraction process.

Each of these can be taken orally. And they can all be added to foods directly and be effective.

Now, what about the waxes that do need to be thoroughly heated before using by mouth or in consumables?

wax decarboxylation

Waxes That Require Decarbing

If the above waxes are the ones that can be used immediately in cooking or by eating, what waxes need decarbing? In short, all the other concentrates.

Which ones are they?

Shatter, wax, and budder all need to be activated before use. So do crumble, hash, rosin, and live resin.

Why? Because they are all made without much heating.

Shatter is a hard, glassy wax. It is made by soaking plants in butane and allowing the solvent to evaporate. Low heat sometimes is used to speed up evaporation. Regular wax is softer because of mixing in air during processing.

Budder gets whipped longer than wax but is made similarly.

Crumble is dryer than budder.

Rosin and hash are solvent-less concentrates. Both are made primarily by using pressure.

And live resin is unique in that it is made from raw versus processed plant material.

All of the above may use some heating in processing, but not enough for decarboxylation.

So, how are they decarbed for eating or cooking?

How To Decarb Wax

There are two ways to activate weed waxes for edible use. One uses an ordinary cookie sheet. The other way is to employ a water bath.

For the cookie sheet method, preheat your oven to 250 degrees F. Use a non-stick pan so you can easily remove your decarbed material.

  • Place the solid concentrate in the center and put the sheet pan in the oven for 45 minutes. The concentrate should be bubbling when removed from the oven.
  • Let it sit and cool for a while. Now it can be eaten, used to make cannabutter, or put directly into food.

The water bath method is just as easy.

  • You just put a Pyrex dish inside a pan of boiling water for 30 minutes.
  • Use a kitchen thermometer to make sure the temperature is at 250⁰ F.
  • Again cool, and then use as desired.

decarbed wax

Some Final Thoughts on Decarbing Wax

Keep in mind when cooking with concentrates that they may have a strong plant taste and smell. You’ll want to try them with different foods to see how they may change the flavor.

Sweeter foods can somewhat disguise the weed flavor. That is why hash brownies and weed cookies are so popular.

Now you just need some wax concentrates to decarb. If you don’t have any lying around then you’ll have to buy some.

We know where you can find some deals.

Stoner Terms

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 15 April 2022 in Canna Blog

Being ‘lit’ has its own language. ‘Lit’, by the way, can mean feeling high as a kite to cannabis consumers.

Those who have been in the weed community for a while likely know the lingo. But for newbies, the terminology might be a bit confusing. Sure, you can smoke down without knowing the slang. However, understanding stoner terms has benefits.

If you’re puffing away with your pals, someone might toss out a stoner term. You can likely enjoy the conversation better if you understand what they’re saying.

Common Stoner Terms

Online articles, like this one, may use some insider words and phrases. Certainly, more knowledge can’t hurt your standing in cannabis culture.

So, let’s look at some important words and phrases commonly used by bud enthusiasts. Similar words are grouped together for simplicity.

420

This stoner term is probably one of the most famous. 420 started as the time of day some high school kids got together for an after-school smoke sesh back in the 1970s. It became code, well before legalization began, for smoking weed.

The date 4/20 has become an international high holiday of sorts for celebrating cannabis.

Thus, many dispensaries offer special 420 deals.

710

710 is ‘OIL’ written upside down. So, it’s code for dabbing some shatter or even taking a hit off your trusty vape pen. Basically, it’s the wax concentrates version of 420. 7/10 is also celebrated by the cannabis community.

To celebrate 7/10 you can sometimes get special discounts on concentrates and oil cartridges, too.

PreRoll

Blunt, Cone, Doobie, Fatty, Joint, Pinner, Pre-roll, Roach, Spliff...

While a few of these stoner terms have different meanings, all of the above are names for a cannabis "cigarette" if you will.

Joints and doobies are pretty much the same things. Learning how to roll a joint is something that is considered a rite of passage for many stoners.

Blunts are made using a hollowed-out cigar or a wrapper from one.

A pinner is a very small and thin joint, rolled tightly to conserve weed.

Pre-rolls are premade joints usually purchased from a provisioning center. Pre-rolls are made using cones.

Cones are papers that you just have to pour some flower into and pinch off the open end. These come with a cardboard filter on the narrower tip. Cones can be purchased so you can fill your own with the leaf of your choice.

A fatty is a thicker joint.

Roaches are the remnants of joints that have been smoked, but there’s still a small stub left. Some tokers save these for a rainy day when they are short on weed.

Finally, spliffs are joints that mix tobacco and cannabis.

Concentrates

Budder, Crumble, Hash, Live Resin, Oil Carts, Shatter, Wax Dabs

Concentrates are incredibly popular. That’s because they have high amounts of THC.

Leaf THC levels are around 15-30%, but waxes range around 80-90%. So, smoking concentrates has an attraction for anyone wanting stronger effects and benefits

There are many kinds of concentrates.

Budder is also known as BHO – butane hash oil. It has a soft, oily texture and is yellow in color.

Crumble is a brittle type of wax. It is a yellow-orange color with a dull finish.

An old-school concentrate is hash. Hash is pressed kief. Kief is a powdery substance coating marijuana leaf that is high in THC. Pressure and heat are used to make hash.

Vapers use cannabis oil carts. The cartridges are 510-threaded and filled with liquid marijuana concentrate. They screw onto vaporizer pens. Usually, the pen batteries work with the press of a single button.

Live resin is made from fresh, frozen marijuana plants. That preserves the potency of the terpenes and kief. It is usually dark yellow in color and sticky. It is best handled with a dab tool.

Shatter is a hard wax that is glassy. It is yellowish in color.

And, finally, wax dabs are a stoner term for all of the above.

Flower

Buds, Flower, Leaf, Nuggs...

Flower is like the "fruit" of the cannabis plant. These are where the cannabinoids are most concentrated.

They are normally sold in eighth, quarter, half-ounce, and full ounce quantities. The cost is per gram of weight.

Collectively, buds and nuggs are referred to as flower or leaf.

Stoner

Pothead, Stoner, Toker...

These labels all refer to someone who uses weed. Depending on who’s using the word, burnout or pothead could be considered negative. Those who are not in favor of weed use tend to use these terms to refer to users.

Stoner sometimes indicates someone who has used a lot of marijuana. They may appear dazed, as if they have been struck in the head with a rock.

The term toker comes from toking, or smoking marijuana.

Stoned

Buzzed, Couch-locked, Elevated, Fried, High, Toasted, Wasted...

It’s not news that pot has psychotropic effects. Feeling floaty is one of the reasons that people find marijuana enjoyable. However, there are also physical and psychological benefits.

But since the buzz is a big part of being a stoner, many words refer to it.

High is a pretty common description. Elevated is a bit fancier way to say the same thing.

Couch-locked means to be so high you can barely move from the furniture.

Fried, toasted, and wasted are all ways to say that someone is extremely high.

Edibles

Cannabutter, Hash Brownies, Weed Cookies

Cannabis can be "decarbed" and used in cooking. Decarbing means to heat plant matter so that it can be mixed into butter or oil, which is in turn used to make food.

Consumables made with activated cannabis are called edibles.

Cannabutter is what you call butter made with decarbed cannabis. It can be used in cooking just like regular butter.

Hash brownies are brownies made with cannabutter. They are a legendary staple of weed edibles.

Weed cookies are any cookies made with cannabis.

Cotton Mouth

Dry Mouth, Dry Eyes, Munchies...

There are some minor side effects to smoking ganja. The main attraction for many is euphoria. And there’s symptom relief for pain and stress. But there are a few downsides.

Cottonmouth is exactly what it sounds like. High THC cannabis can get you so very thirsty from toking. Your mouth feels as dry as cotton. Easily solved by drinking some water.

You will learn that eye drops can be essential. That’s because another consequence of cannabis use is dry eyes.

Fast food and weed have a historic alliance. Marijuana makes you have the munchies. Appetite stimulation is why some people smoke pot.

Weed

Ganja, Grass, Mary Jane, Pot...

It’s all marijuana.

Ganja is a Hindu word for weed.

The term "Grass" was used popularly in the 70s and refers to the grassy smell of cannabis.

"Pot" comes from the Spanish word "potiguaya."

It’s also popularly referred to as "Mary Jane," which looks and sounds similar to the word marijuana.

Toking ‘weed’ grows anywhere it’s warm, sunny, and wet like regular weeds do. So, it became known by that name.

This list is by no means every stoner term there is. But now you have a vocabulary that can help you converse within the cannabis community. And, if you’re into using and enjoying weed, then the cannabis community includes you!

Mangia Ganja Food Festival offers Sampler's Paradise, April 10

Nothing resonates with the taste of spring like a gathering of foodies on a Sunday afternoon – and what more appropriate in April, than a 420-medicated theme? That’s precisely what’s on the menu Sunday April 10, as TrapCulture puts on the Mangia Ganja Food Festival, featuring the Who’s-Who of the Arizona cannabis community, with a focus on local edibles.

Each of the 30 onsite food vendors are current manufacturers and distributors within the state (although nothing infused will officially be on sale at the event). However, festival-goers can expect to get the sampling of a life-time, with booths giving away free yet potent bite-sized versions of those signature munchies (and even rarer concoctions you can’t find in stores).

You can start nibbling early; doors open mid-morning (10am VIP/11am GA), with musical acts performing throughout the day. Contests will also decide local watermelon-eating champ, and top competitive dabbers, both in county fair fashion. Art exhibitions spotlighting fourteen local artists, in addition to 20 live-painters, will help create a visually-powerful, mind-altering experience that continues through late afternoon. 

There’s no more intensely-chill culinary experience like it; whether foodie or just plain cannabis enthusiast. Arrive early so you have time to let things kick in – and get your groove on. 

Tickets can be purchased at at TrapCultureAZ.com for 18+ medical or 21+ recreational users. The venue, Phoenix Events Complex also charges $10 for parking.

Dispensaries are popping up everywhere, in more and more states. But just how many dispensaries can you visit in one day? And how much can you buy?

This can be asked by a cannabis consumer who wants to purchase as much as they can in one day or perhaps someone who wants to stock up on a certain brand or strain that is hard to find. Since we focus on deals and dispensaries mostly in Arizona, Colorado, and Illinois for now, we will keep our focus on those three states.

In these states (and more to come), Cannasaver offers the best dispensary deals and coupons with savings of up to 75% on ounces, concentrates, shatter, wax, edibles, and more.

If you allow the location services on your browser, you will get the best deals right close by.

Most states have their marijuana laws written in ounces of cannabis; however, some states discuss also discuss grams (g) of flower, in which 28 g equal to 1 ounce, while others consider 30 g equal to one ounce.

visiting multiple dispensaries in one day

How Many Dispensaries Can You Visit in One Day in Arizona?

In Arizona, there is no limit on the number of dispensaries you can visit in one day, but there is a limit on the amount you can purchase in a time span of 14 days.

In Arizona, the amount a recreational user can purchase in 14 days is 1 ounce of cannabis, with no more than 5 gm of the 1 ounce being marijuana concentrate. Consumers who have medical marijuana cards or licenses are allowed to purchase 2.5 ounces every 14 days.

Check out some great Arizona cannabis deals and coupons here.

If you’re wondering how different dispensaries and cannabis stores in Arizona keep track of the amount you buy, it is through a central computer system.

The different Arizona dispensaries are supposed to keep track of all their sold cannabis products, which include dates and ingredients. Different dispensaries may have different systems, but they are supposed to report to the same database and share information.

visiting multiple dispensaries

How Many Dispensaries Can You Visit in One Day, in Colorado?

Like Arizona, you can visit as many times as you’d like, but there is a limit on the amount you can purchase.

Colorado calculates the amount purchased daily, unlike Arizona which calculates the amount purchased every 14 days. Colorado also allows much more to be purchased, compared to Arizona.

There is not really a central computer system in Colorado, where dispensaries keep track of what consumers purchase at other dispensaries.

Because of this issue, Colorado dispensaries usually allow the purchase up to the legal possession limits, at one time.

This amount is 1 ounce of flower (or 2 ounces of flower for a medical marijuana patient), 8 gm of concentrate, or 800 mg of edibles.

Note that a medical marijuana patient can have twice the amount of flower, compared to a recreational user; however, the same limits on concentrate and edibles apply. There is an exception in which medical marijuana patients ages 18-20 can only purchase 2 gm per day. Here are some great cannabis deals and coupons available in Colorado.

You must be aware of these possession limits when purchasing.

For example, a recreational user could go into one dispensary to purchase one ounce, and then go to another dispensary to purchase another ounce; however, while the dispensary might not be aware of it, you would be over the possession legal limit and breaking the law.

buying weed from multiple dispensaries

How Many Dispensaries Can You Visit in One Day in Illinois?

Like Arizona and Colorado, the number of dispensaries you can visit in one day in Illinois is unlimited; however, there is a limit on how much can be purchased. Like Colorado, the amount that can be purchased is based on the legal limit for possession.

Illinois does differ from Arizona and Colorado, in that the limits of recreational cannabis depend on if you are a resident of Illinois or from out of state.

Please note that either way, cannabis cannot be purchased in Illinois and then legally transported across state lines. This is due to a federal law that cannabis users cannot transport cannabis across any state line.

For Illinois residents, purchase or possession is allowed for 30 gm of cannabis flower, up to 500 gm of THC (the psychoactive ingredient in cannabis that causes the “high” feeling users experience), or 5 gm of cannabis concentrates, such as waxes or oils.

For edibles, also called cannabis-infused products, the weight in gm is calculated by the weight of the total product; thus, a recreational cannabis edible should not weigh more than 500 gm,

For non-Illinois residents, the possession limits are half of what an Illinois resident can purchase. So, a non-Illinois resident can purchase/possess 15 gm of cannabis flower, 250 gm of THC infused products or 2.5 gm of cannabis concentrates.

In Illinois, the legal limits of each type are allowed to all be maxed out, at the same time. In other words, a recreational Illinois resident user can purchase or possess up to 30 gm of flower, 500 gm of THC cannabis-infused products, and 500 gm of edibles, all at the same time.

The amounts of medical cannabis that can be purchased are calculated over a two-week period, with 2.5 ounces or 71 gm every 14 days. A waiver can be obtained through the state if someone’s medical condition requires a higher dose.

Where cannabis can be legally used, varies by state. In Arizona, cannabis use is prohibited in public places, with the exception of edibles. The edibles can be consumed in a public place, as long as the consumer is not operating a vehicle. In Colorado and Illinois, the use of any cannabis products, including edibles, is not legal in public places.

There is widespread weed legalization from state to state. Yet cannabis consumers who travel can run into a real problem. When you leave your state, you can’t take it with you. That’s because federally, weed is still illegal.

It’s a big country and sometimes you gotta get where you’re going by plane. Air travel is governed by the Transportation Security Administration. Currently, the TSA only makes allowances for medical users. But even if you have a medical use license, you can still potentially get in legal trouble.

For recreational weed users, there are no real TSA exemptions. So, if you can’t bring your stash with you, are you straight out of luck? Not necessarily.

There are recreational states that do allow you to buy with an out-of-state license. Let’s take a look at local cannabis laws.

buy-recreational-weed-out-of-state

Can You Buy Recreational Weed with an Out-of-State License in Colorado?

Colorado is a popular tourist destination. There’s Rocky Mountain National Park. Skiers flock to Vail and Aspen. Suffice to say, there’s much to see and do.

For 420 enthusiasts, Colorado is special. It was the first state to legalize both medical and recreational cannabis

Cool, but what does it mean for our jurisdiction tokers?

For Colorado locals, you have to be 21 or older to buy recreational weed. With a medical license, you can shop dispensaries as young as 18 years old. Out-of-state visitors can buy as much marijuana as residents. Tourists merely need a valid form of ID, such as a driver’s license from their own local.

So, that’s a big yes for buying buds recreationally, even if you aren’t a Colorado native.

How Much Recreational Weed Can You Buy in Colorado?

In Colorado, both residents and guests are limited to 1 oz of cannabis flower

The law further specifies that to be equal to 8 grams of concentrate or 800 milligrams of edibles. That’s just one of those not all three. They will add the weight of the weed together.

state of arizona

Can You Buy Recreational Weed with an Out-of-State License in Arizona?

Arizona is another place people like to visit. 

What’s there? There’s Hoover Dam – that’s really interesting. 

Deserts are everywhere. 

Oh, yeah, and they also have the Grand Canyon. It’s a big attraction.

What’s the situation with legalization? 

First of all, recreational cannabis became legal there in 2021. State law allows local residents who are 21 years or older to buy cannabis. And medical marijuana is allowable for 18-year-olds and up.

But can you buy weed there if you’re just visiting? Tourists can indeed buy cannabis with a valid legal ID. As with Colorado, a driver’s license will do ya.

Therefore, Arizona gets a thumbs up for being friendly to out-of-state stoners.

How Much Recreational Weed Can You Buy in Arizona?

Now in Arizona, visitors get to buy up to an ounce of bud. Both concentrates and edibles are limited to 5 grams. Again, that’s the total amount. So, authorities will add them collectively. And officials will penalize you for going over the ounce limit – or the equivalent in concentrates and/or edibles.

Can You Buy Recreational Weed With an Out-of-State License in Illinois?

How about the ‘Land of Lincoln’ as Illinois is known?

You may decide to go visit Illinois for a number of reasons

Chicago is one of the biggest tourist destinations. 

There are museums, restaurants, and entertainment venues aplenty in the Windy City. But Illinois also boasts a number of pleasant parks and scenic drives along Lake Michigan. Consequently, you likely will find much to do while on vacation there.

How is the local ganja scene? In 2020, cannabis consumption for recreational users became allowable by law in Illinois. Medical licenses are available for those with qualifying medical conditions. In both medical and recreational instances, you have to be at least 21 years old.

Residents can buy 30 grams of marijuana or up to 500 grams of THC. Thus, they restrict the amount of the psychotropic element in pot. So, you can get less of higher-level THC cannabis.

And are visitors allowed to buy Illinois herbs?  

The answer is once again a resounding yes. As with the other places above, tourists just need a driver's license or other legal ID.

That said, the Illinois legal situation is a bit more complex. It’s still good, but there’s more you must pay attention to. 

How Much Recreational Weed Can You Buy in Illinois?

The rules in Illinois for pot products, between residents and visitors, are not the same. Tourists are restricted to half the legal limit that residents can buy - 15g of flower or 250g of THC. And only purchasing 2.5 grams of concentrates. And those as well as edibles count towards the 250 grams of THC.

Cities like Gulfport, along the Illinois border, may get traffic from those wanting to cross state lines. But taking the weed back over to another state is illegal.

Illinois Marijuana Laws

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 24 March 2022 in Canna Blog

Nowadays, a number of states have legalized weed. Some have "okayed" cannabis recreationally, some medically, and some both.

Illinois has both types. And, just like every other legal state, it has laws. These laws govern who can have weed and how much. Further, they govern who can grow it and who can sell it.

There are differences in the rules for medical and recreational users. They regulate how much and what kind of weed either kind of cannabis consumer can have. And they regulate the total amount of THC in the marijuana merchandise you buy.

There are even guidelines for out-of-state shoppers. The legislature has been quite thorough in enacting laws to govern the use of ganja. Let's go over Illinois marijuana laws – both recreational and medical.

illinois legal marijuana

Let's start with when this all began.

When Did Marijuana Become "Legalized" in Illinois?

The legalization of cannabis in the United States began with medical use in California in 1996. Following that, Washington and Colorado were the first states to legalize recreational in 2012.

Illinois approved a limited medical marijuana program in 2013. Recreational weed was approved by the legislature to begin in January of 2020.

There are some notable differences between the two categories of weed laws. 

We’ll look at those distinctions in depth.

Medical Marijuana Laws in Illinois

The state’s Compassionate Use of Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act took effect on July 15, 2014. It allowed for 35 qualifying conditions. Notably, at the time, qualifiers did not include chronic pain, the main reason for most medical use.

A qualified doctor must attest that marijuana is a necessary medicine for applicants. Anyone 18 years old and up can apply for a license. In some instances, adults can apply for caregiver licenses for minor children. 

There have been significant adjustments to rules for patients since 2014. For instance, chronic pain has been added to the acceptable conditions list. The opioid crisis was a major motivator for expanding medical marijuana access.

How much can cannabis cardholders acquire?

illinois medical marijuana

How Much Medical Can You Buy at a Time?

Pot patients in the Land of Lincoln, as Illinois is known, can get 2.5 ounces, or 71 grams, of ganja within a two-week period

They may own up to 5 grams of concentrates. 

They may have up to 500 mg of THC period. 

Flower, edibles, and concentrates cannot exceed 500mg of total THC.

Should a doctor indicate, cardholders can get waivers for more weed through the state. 

Plants are also possible for patients to get and grow, but they are limited to five. As with many states, cannabis crops must be kept out of public view. Using weed is also restricted to private, personal spaces.

Cannabis consumers with a med license can also purchase through registered caregivers. These agents can only serve one patient at a time. They can also pick up marijuana medicine for homebound patients. Caregiver cannabis has the same limits as other medical marijuana licenses.

How are laws and limits different for casual users?

Recreational Marijuana Laws in Illinois 

In 2016, the state did decriminalize possessing less than 10 grams of marijuana. For small amounts, the penalty was set at $200.

January 2020 was the beginning of recreational use in the state. The law stipulates an age limit of 21 years or older.

As with pretty much every other state, it is prohibited to use cannabis products in public. Transportation must be in sealed containers stored away from anyone driving an automobile. Obviously, driving while high is a crime.

Breaking weed laws have severe consequences. 

For instance, holding more than 30 to 100 grams of marijuana is considered a Class A misdemeanor. And that is punished by up to a year in prison, plus a potential fine of $2500.

Only licensed dispensaries can sell weed, recreational or otherwise. Individuals cannot sell cannabis to anyone else. Nor can individuals grow their own plants without a medical license.

Individual localities in Illinois can decide if they want to allow provisioning centers. They cannot supersede state laws about personal use or possession. You can find out where to legally buy weed from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. Or by searching here on Cannasaver, especially in the Chicago area.

Cannabis consumers must show a valid ID. You must prove you are 21 years old or older. All sales are cash because, at this time, credit cards cannot be used.

There is an allowance for out-of-state users to buy recreationally. They also need a valid ID from their own state. Visitors have reduced amounts they can purchase, as detailed below.

Suffice to say, tourists also face stiff penalties if they possess over the legal limits.

All that said, how much can recreational users buy?

illinois recreational marijuana laws

How Much Recreational Can You Buy at a Time? 

As indicated above, the regulations are different for casual cannabis use.

Those without a med license can get up to an ounce of herb. Cannabis concentrates are limited to 5 grams. And edibles or tinctures are restricted to 500 milligrams of THC.

The total limit is 500 milligrams. 

That’s all of the THC altogether between flower, concentrates, and edibles.

That’s the rub in Illinois – they restrict the amount of THC in the weed you buy. So, you can purchase less weed with higher THC levels. These limits are for a two-week period – thus every two weeks you can buy and own up to the restrictions.

As previously mentioned, out of staters can get recreational cannabis in Illinois. However, they are restricted to half the amount locals can get. So, that’s a half-ounce of flower and 2.5 grams of concentrate. The total THC cap is 250 milligrams. That’s everything - flower, edibles, and concentrates added together.

For locals or tourists, there are ways to save some green on your ganja.

How Many Blunts in an Ounce?

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 21 March 2022 in Canna Blog

Blunts "burn" through a decent amount of weed, so it's best to buy an ounce of weed or more at a time. However, you may be asking yourself, “How many blunts can I make from an ounce of weed?” Just how many blunts equals an ounce of weed? We break down the math:

an ounce of weed

How Much Weed is in An Ounce?

Well, let’s first discuss what do we mean by an ounce of weed.  

When people refer to one ounce of weed, they refer to cannabis flower or marijuana bud

For cannabis flower, one ounce of weed equals 28 grams (g).   

For our discussion, we will not get into any possession limitations for recreational and/or medical cannabis consumers in different states. Ask your local budtender for more regulations there.    

Before we start our discussion, we want you to know if you’d like to purchase cannabis by the ounce, you can check out some of our great ounce deals and coupons

What Can You Do With An Ounce of Weed?

So, what can you do with 1 ounce of cannabis/weed? 

Well, quite a few things, but let’s start with a blunt first.  

how many blunts in an ounce of weed

Smoke Blunts

A blunt is similar to a joint, but a blunt is rolled with cigar paper (also called blunt paper). 

This paper is made out of tobacco and gives the user that extra “kick” when smoking.   The tobacco-made wrapping paper helps the blunt burn slower than a joint (discussed below).  There are numerous flavors of blunt paper including different kinds of fruit flavors.  

Most blunts contain anywhere from 1-2 grams of weed, so with one ounce of weed, you could roll anywhere from 14 to 28 blunts.   

If you’re wondering if you could use the entire ounce of cannabis (weed) in one blunt, sure, you can.  You would just have to find the correct cigar paper that would keep the one ounce of weed in place.  You may have to also be creative, with the wrapping.

That's quite the blunt.

Smoke Joints

Classic joints (or pre-rolls) involve rolling white paper, which can now be made of various materials, including hemp, soy, rice, and flaxseed (also referred to as flax). 

There are also clear rolling papers made from plant cellulose.  The benefit of the cellulose paper is the ability to see the cannabis; however, some users claim that it affects the taste of the joint and they can even taste the cellulose.  

There is an obvious difference between a joint and a blunt wrapper, with the latter being brown and much thicker.   

The amount of cannabis in a joint can vary from 0.25 g to 1.5 g, in contrast to a blunt, which usually contains 1-2 grams. 

As you notice, with a blunt and joint, the amount of cannabis can vary, but typically a blunt has more cannabis, even though it is not always the case.    

Let’s say the average joint contains 1 gm of weed; it would allow you to roll 28 joints

If you use 1.5 gm of weed, in each joint, it would allow you to roll about 18 joints, while using ¼ gm of weed, in each joint, would allow you to roll 112 joints; however, I’m not sure who would ever want to roll that many small joints.  We’re just noting that it could be done.     

With one ounce of weed, you can roll quite a few blunts and/or joints. 

Load a Bowl or Two or Fifty

If you do not enjoy rolling, then you can place the one ounce into a bowl.  

The bowl is the part of a pipe or bong (water pipe) that holds the cannabis. 

In bongs, the bowl usually slides out, to allow the chamber to be cleared, while the cannabis smoke is inhaled.

Most pipes are packed ½ gm at a time, so with one ounce of weed, you could pack 56 bowls.   

Vape It

Vaporizers are considered a safer alternative to smoking since the cannabis leaves are not burned; thus, fewer to no carcinogens are produced.  The THC is extracted from the cannabis leaves by heating, and not burning them.  Most vaporizers take ¼ gm to ½ gm of weed. 

So, with one ounce of weed, you could fill and refill a vaporizer 56 times, up to 112 times.    

make edibles with an ounce of weed

Use It For Edibles

For those of you that don’t enjoy smoking or vaping, edibles are a great way to consume cannabis.  

Cannabis-infused butter or cannabis oils are used to make baked edibles such as brownies and cookies.   

Some people prefer edibles since the “high” sensation that is produced, will last much longer than the high from inhalation.  The “high” produced from edibles peaks at about 2 hours and can last up to 24 hours; in contrast to the “high” from inhaled cannabis that usually peaks at 10 minutes and lasts 1-3 hours 

To get high from edibles, the cannabis flower needs to be heated and placed into butter (decarboxylation).  The heating of the cannabis, and dissolving into the butter, is required to release the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the main component of cannabis, that gives you the “high” feeling.   

The amount of cannabis used to make edibles is based on mg of THC, with 10 mg being the usual dose.  To calculate this dose we require the percentage of THC in the cannabis. 

Some low potency cannabis contains 10% THC, while more potent strains can contain 20% THC.  If you do the calculations, milligrams (mg) of cannabis must be used. With 1 gm of cannabis flower, there is 1000 mg, with 10% THC, that would be 100 mg of THC.  That 100 mg of THC supplies 10 edibles, at the typical edible dose of 10 mg THC each; thus, 1 ounce of flower, could produce 280 typical edibles. 

But please note, that many "bakers" use varying amounts of THC when making different products, so these numbers can vary.   

As you see, there are quite a few ways that you can use 1 ounce of weed.  Don’t forget to check out our special deals on ounces of cannabis.

Two Ounces of Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 18 March 2022 in Canna Blog

Two ounces of weed is a good amount of weed. But just what does that entail? Here's all you need to know about two ounces, like purchasing and possessing, as well as just exactly how much two ounces of weed proves to be.

Before we start our discussion, we want to make one point clear.  THIS ARTICLE IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY.  This is not legal advice.   

There are a couple of reasons we state this:  

  • Some sources may provide contradictory information; however, there seem to be general rules that apply to each state. 
  • The second reason is that the rules seem to be updated frequently; any legal rule in this article could be different at the time of publication, or even after publication.   

For the purposes of this article, we will stick to cannabis flower. 

Please note that the possession amounts vary for concentrates, edibles, and THC-infused products.  

Most sources consider 30 grams (gm) of cannabis flower to be equal to one ounce. 

2 ounces of weed in bag

Possessing Two Ounces of Weed

The first question you may ask is if it is even legal to possess 2 ounces of weed, at one time.   

The only place where the answer is yes, for recreational users, is in Michigan.

However, medical marijuana users who have a medical card (license) can possess 2 ounces or more, in many states. 

For the purpose of this article, we will discuss the states of Arizona, Colorado, and Illinois, for now. 

In Arizona, recreational users can possess up to one ounce, while medical marijuana patients can purchase/possess 2.5 ounces every 14 days. 

In Colorado, recreational users are allowed to possess 1 ounce of flower, while medical marijuana patients are allowed to possess 2 ounces of weed (flower).

In Illinois, in-state residents are allowed to possess 30 gm, which is approximately one ounce, while medical marijuana patients are allowed to possess 2.5 ounces of weed, which is the same as the amount that can be purchased every 14 days.

What Can You Do With Two Ounces of Weed?

So, what can you do with 2 ounces of cannabis/weed?  Well, quite a few things.

roll 2 ounces of weed

Roll It

Rolling papers can be used to create items such as joints, blunts, and spliffs.  These can all be different sizes (and prices).

Classic joints involve rolling white paper, which can now be made of various materials, including hemp, soy, rice, and flaxseed (also referred to as flax).  There are also clear rolling papers made from plant cellulose.  The benefit of the cellulose paper is the ability to see the cannabis; however, some users claim that it affects the taste of the joint and they can even taste the cellulose.

The major difference between a blunt and a joint involves the rolling paper that is used.  A blunt is rolled with cigar paper (also called blunt paper).  There is an obvious difference since the wrapping paper is brown and much thicker.  The paper is made out of tobacco and gives the user that extra “kick” when smoking.   The tobacco-made wrapping paper helps the blunt burn slower than a joint.

There are numerous flavors of blunt paper including different kinds of fruit flavors.  Usually, the blunts are larger than joints, but that is not always the case.

The amount of cannabis in a joint can vary from 0.25 gm to 1.5 gm.  This is in contrast to a blunt, which usually contains 1-2 gm.  The amount of cannabis can vary, but typically, a blunt has more cannabis, even though it is not always the case.

However, you could theoretically put together a very large wrapping paper (for a joint) or a very large cigar wrapper (for a blunt), and use it to wrap two ounces of weed.  You’d probably have to get creative with the wrapper.

As of the time of this publication, the largest blunt in the world was produced in LA, called the “bazooka” blunt, which weighed 5 pounds.  According to the article, this blunt took 4 hours to be smoked.   

The largest recorded joint ever made was done by Tommy Greenhand (yes that is his name).  In 2016 he rolled a joint that weighed 4.2 pounds, over a 5-day span.

The thinner rolling paper used for a joint does not contain tobacco.   The blunts contain tobacco because it’s present in the rolling paper, not because of tobacco added to the cannabis.   

When tobacco is added to cannabis, a spliff is created.  Basically, a spliff is a joint that contains cannabis and has added tobacco, unlike joints that contain only cannabis.  The addition of tobacco gives the spliff a peppy lift.  A spliff can be rolled from white rolling paper or a cigar (blunt) wrap. 

Some of the pre-rolls have filters, in cannabis terms called a “crutch.” 

With 2 ounces of weed, you can roll quite a few blunts, joints, and spliffs.  However, if you do not enjoy rolling, then you can place the two ounces into a bowl.   The bowl is the part of a pipe or bong (water pipe) that holds the cannabis.  In bongs, the bowl usually slides out, to allow the chamber to be cleared, while the cannabis smoke is inhaled. Most pipes are packed ½ gm at a time, so with 2 ounces of weed, you could pack 60 bowls.  

Vape It 

Vaporizers are considered a safer alternative to smoking since the cannabis leaves are not burned; thus, fewer to no carcinogens are produced. 

The THC is extracted from the cannabis leaves by heating, and not burning them.  Most vaporizers take ¼ gm to ½ gm of weed.  So, with 2 ounces of weed, you could fill and refill a vaporizer over 100 times.  

make edibles with two ounces of weed

Eat It

Before you just open your bag of two ounces of weed and start chowing down, it needs to be in edible form before you do so – "decarbed."

For those of you that don’t enjoy smoking or vaping, edibles are a great way to consume cannabis.   Cannabis-infused butter or cannabis oils are used to make brownies and cookies.   

As you see, there are quite a few ways that you can use 2 ounces of weed.  Don’t forget to check out our special deals on ounces of cannabis

Pre Roll Prices

Posted by CANNASaver on Monday, 28 February 2022 in Canna Blog

If you're trying to save some money on weed, you're probably considering pre-rolls. Here's all you need to know about pre-rolls, including pre-roll prices.

We'll start with the basics...

bag of pre rolls

What is a Pre Roll?

A pre-roll is basically a cannabis joint that has been rolled ahead of time by the supplier or dispensary.

It basically saves the consumer the time needed to grind up the leaf, purchase the wrapper, and roll it oneself. 

Pre-rolls from a dispensary are usually made by special machines, but can also be made by hand. The machine produces a superior product compared to hand-rolled ones. Many cannabis consumers have liked the convenience of prepackaging for the pre-roll.

In the past, consumers stayed away from pre-rolls since they were made from “shake” or low-grade cannabis, stems, and excess leaves (the extra pieces at the bottom of the weed jars). However, with the development of quality cannabis dispensaries, pre-rolls have now gained popularity, since quality weed is now being used to create the pre-rolls.

Even what we call “shake” these days is of great quality.

Anatomy of a Pre Roll

Pre-rolls can contain any type of flower material. Different types of pre-rolls can have additional concentrates, such as wax, added to the inside or outside of the pre-roll. Adding concentrates adds to the potency of the pre-roll.

Many types of pre-rolls can be purchased, such as joints, blunts, spliffs, etc. Note that all these types of pre-rolls can be of various sizes. 

Some of the pre-rolls have filters, in cannabis terms called a “crutch.”

Classic joints involve rolling white paper, which can now be made of various materials, including hemp, soy, rice, and flaxseed (also referred to as flax). There are also clear rolling papers made from plant cellulose. The benefit of the cellulose paper is the ability to see the cannabis; however, some users claim that it affects the taste of the joint and they can even taste the cellulose.

How Much Weed is in a Pre Roll Joint?

The amount of cannabis in a joint can vary from 0.25 grams to 1.5 grams. 

This is in contrast to a blunt, which usually contains 1-2 grams. As you notice, the amount of cannabis can vary, but overall, a blunt has more cannabis, even though it is not always the case. A pre roll may not contain as much, but you’re not going to “burn” through your weed as fast – pun intended.

Pre Roll vs Blunt

The major difference between a blunt and a joint involves the rolling paper that is used. A blunt is rolled with cigar paper (also called blunt paper). There is an obvious difference since the wrapping paper is brown and much thicker. The paper is made out of tobacco and gives the user that extra “kick” when smoking. The tobacco-made wrapping paper helps the blunt burn slower than a joint There are numerous flavors of blunt paper including different kinds of fruit flavors. Usually, the blunts are larger than joints, but that is not always the case.

The thinner rolling paper used for a joint does not contain tobacco. The blunts contain tobacco because it’s present in the rolling paper, not because of tobacco added to the cannabis.

Pre Roll vs Spliff

When tobacco is added to cannabis, a spliff is created. Basically, a spliff is a joint that contains cannabis and has added tobacco, unlike joints that contain only cannabis. The addition of tobacco gives the spliff a peppy lift. A spliff can be rolled from white rolling paper or a cigar (blunt) wrap.

So now that we have that down, the question is whether or not to roll yourself, or should you just purchase a pre-roll? 

Are the convenience and pros of a pre-roll worth it, compared to the cons? 

We’ll let you decide whether or not pre rolls are worth it, but we do think they’re definitely a better deal these days, given the quality of weed and even “shake,” which is what pre rolls used to be made up of most.

Let’s discuss some positives and negatives about pre-rolls.

Advantages to Pre Rolls

  • The most important and obvious positive is the convenience of not having to roll. You can pick it up at the dispensary, and it’s all ready to use.
  • There is less of a mess. You avoid the problem of excess cannabis left behind.
  • They can be bought in any number you want (to an extent), and can even be bought in packs, similar to a pack of cigarettes.
  • They are easy to take on the go, especially for traveling.
  • It’s less likely a machine pre-roll will open and release its contents. This is very important when traveling to a state or country where recreational cannabis is not legal. You don’t want to enter that state/country with cannabis leaf particles on your person. 
  • There are great prices for pre-rolls if you know where to look (hint: We have many on our website, which is probably why you’re here).
  • Some consumers with certain medical conditions are not able to roll a joint, blunt, or spiff on their own.
  • There is such a wide variety available to satisfy any cannabis consumer.

holding pre roll joints

Disadvantages to Pre Rolls

  • You can’t be positive about what kind of cannabis is in the pre-roll unless you were to cut it open.
  • If you’re not familiar with the dispensary, you could end up receiving pre-rolls with low-grade cannabis, stem, or excess leaf. If you stick to the dispensaries on our website, this is much less likely to occur.
  • Pre-rolls tend to go stale faster since they are not sold in well-sealed containers. It is up to the consumer to find some sort of airtight storage container, once home. Mason jars have traditionally been a great choice.

The million-dollar question is whether you should or should not purchase a pre-roll. Does the convenience outweigh the negatives? Do they actually end up being less expensive than just rolling it yourself?

Well, the answer is that depends on the person. My suggestion is to purchase and try them. See what you think. Before giving them the shove aside, I would definitely recommend trying a pre-roll.

Most pre-rolls consist of 1 gm, and prices will vary just as the different strains cost different prices.
