A strange thing has happened alongside the phenomenon of marijuana legalization. A lot of us old timers who have been smoking weed for literally decades are suddenly feeling a bit out of the loop. With marijuana legalization and the opening of marijuana dispensaries in Denver and other places where weed is legal has come a plethora of new products and new terminology-- especially when it comes to dabbing, which is becoming extremely popular among the younger set of marijuana enthusiasts. What is live sauce? What is terp jelly? What is bubble hash? The younger generations and the dude at the weed store definitely seem to know, at least, because these concentrates are flying off the shelves. There’s no real reason why older people don’t tend to be as interested in dabbing, except for possibly confusion over all the new terminology that can make dabbing seem more complicated than it actually is. I mean, I’m used to packing a bowl and smoking it, or rolling a joint and smoking it. When I first heard of dabbing, I didn’t understand why I would ever want to have a special device called a dab rig and something called a nail, and even a miniature blowtorch in order to get high. It just all seems so...complicated. Until you try it, and discover that you can get incredibly high with just a couple of hits. Dabbing is a way to achieve a more intense high more quickly, so if you don’t like to feel like you’re wasting a lot of time smoking weed, dabbing will make getting high a quick and easy minute-long procedure. If you’re wondering where to start or what some of the dabbing terms mean, here is a dictionary of common terms you will see relating to concentrates and dabbing.
Sauce is a type of concentrate that has a texture similar to sugar wax, which is somewhat grainy, except that it also has a liquid layer on the top. Live sauce just means that the resins are extracted from fresh marijuana as opposed to dried marijuana.
Terp jelly is a concentrate made with pure cannabinoids so you get more of the isolated terpenes in the final product. If you want to try terp jelly, one of the best terp jelly deals in Denver right now is at Lightshade where they have Black Diamond terp jelly for just $40 with the CannaSaver coupon, which is a $10 savings off the usual price.
Bubble hash is a concentrate made by processing marijuana in ice cold water. It produces an interesting texture and pure product that is free from harsh chemicals. If you’re looking for bubble hash near capitol hill in Denver, AMCH has deals for bubble hash, five grams for $100, tax included. AMCH is a Denver dispensary near capitol hill that sells both recreational and medical marijuana.
A dab rig is a type of smoking accessory that is used for dabbing concentrates. It looks similar to a bong, only the bowl--which has a part called a nail--is different. It has a little post type thing in the center of the bowl which is heated, then you touch the concentrates to the hot post and then proceed just like you were using a bong. CannaBotica, a Denver dispensary near Sports Authority Field at Mile High Stadium, has a sale on dab rigs right now for $18.
These terms are pretty self-explanatory, really. It’s just what you think it is. BHO concentrates are extracted with butane, whereas CO2 concentrates are extracted with CO2. Many people feel there is not much difference in the end product, but if you are concerned about chemical residues, CO2 concentrates are the more popular choice for those who want a purer product. Curious to try for yourself? Check out this Golden Barn CO2 oil deal available at CannaBotica,or head to Doc’s Apothecary Northglenn dispensary for a 500mg Lucky Turtle CO2 vape cartridge deal for just $25--a twenty dollar savings off the usual price!
