Dabbing Dictionary: Live Sauce, Terp Jelly, Bubble Hash, Dab Rig - What is all this stuff?

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.

What is Live Sauce?

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.

What is Terp Jelly?

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.

What is Bubble Hash?

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.

What is a Dab Rig?

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.

What is the Difference in BHO Concentrates vs Co2 Concentrates?

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! Just mention the deal you saw on CannaSaver.

Kief vs Hash

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 25 March 2021 in Canna Blog

Frazier vs Ali. Coke vs Pepsi. Red Sox vs Yankees. Kief vs Hash.

Fortunately, there is no rivalry between kief vs hash – just some key differences.

Both are great ways to get high, though there are changes in composition, production, and ingestion that make each unique.

By the end of this article, you’ll know everything there is to know about both hash and kief.

Definitions of Kief and Hash

·         Kief – an accumulation of trichomes sifted from cannabis flowers with a mesh screen.

If you’ve ever used a grinder, odds are you’ve already run into some kief on your own. Kief is the small, powder-like substance you’ll find in a kief catcher. Most grinders are equipped with one on the bottom third portion. When using the grinder to break down flower, the smaller cannabis particles fall down to the kief catcher. These are among the strongest parts of the cannabis plant – kief can get you really high. Kief contains the highest concentration of cannabinoids (THCA, CBD, etc.) in the entire plant.

·         Hash (hashish) – a concentrate created by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together.

Hash is essentially pressed and heated kief. When pressed, the composition of the kief changes. Kief itself is like a powder – hash is more akin to soft brick. This hash can be ingested on its own or used to make other concentrates. All concentrates – wax, shatter, oils – are essentially made from hash. Hash can be many different colors but is typically brown, green, or tan.  

History of Kief and Hash

Kief: Comes from an Arabic word meaning “pleasure.” This makes only makes sense, as kief holds some of the highest amounts of cannabinoids of the entire marijuana plant. It’s hard to track down the first time kief was ever used – wherever someone was breaking down marijuana, kief was being made. Old civilizations had been known to sift marijuana plants in order to obtain kief. As cultivation of weed has been traced back to as early as 500 BCE, one can assume kief was being used as well.

Hash: Hashish is really the original concentrate. Yes, kief is technically a concentrate – but that’s just collected, vs pressing/heating. Hash requires a process to be made. It’s been used both recreationally and medically for thousands of years. A reference to hash can be found in the book 1001 Arabian Nights, which was first published in 1775 – but the contents are likely from much earlier, somewhere between the 8th and 14th Centuries. There are also stories that link the use of hash to Haydar, the founder of the Sufi order. Hashish was widely used among ancient civilizations in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe. The concentrate even began to be studied for medical purposes in the early 1900s.

How Kief and Hash are Made

Kief: Kief isn’t as much of a making process as it is a collecting process. It’s really quite simple – use your grinder. The frequently you grind up flower, the more kief you will collect. Kief can also be collected using a sifter.

Hash: The process of making hash is slightly more labor-intensive. Kief is needed to get started on production. The higher the concentration of cannabinoids, terpenes, and trichomes, the stronger the hashish will end up.

The most common way of making hash at home uses a flat-iron or hair straightener, some parchment paper, and kief. Kief goes in the parchment paper, then it is pressed and heated with the iron or straightener. After a short amount of time, the kief will turn into an solid/liquid that can be dabbed or smoked.

Another common way to make hash is by just using the hands. Called charas, and popular in India, flowers are rolled in the hands until a paste-like solid is formed.

The production of hashish has a rich history and is different among many cultures. Still, the end result is the same – a strong concentrate rich with cannabinoids and terpenes.

How To Use Them

Kief: Kief can be used in a variety of ways. Since it’s so commonly collected among stoners, many people have found great ways to utilize all of the cannabinoids located within.

·         Top Off a Bowl or Joint: Kief is pretty strong by itself. It is possible to smoke it on its own, but its powdery texture often leads to incredibly strong hits and coughing fits. Kief really is strong enough that most people don’t need to smoke it by itself. Topping off a bowl or a joint is a great way to make your weed much more potent.

·         Make Cannabutter: Cannabutter is exactly what it sounds like. This product can be used to make stronger edibles than those made with just flower.

·         Spike Your Coffee: That’s right – a popular way to consume kief is by putting it in the morning cup of coffee. The heat of the coffee will activate the cannabinoids in the kief, leaving you with an ultra-relaxing cup of joe.

·         Make Concentrates: Kief can be used to make a variety of concentrates – hash, live resin, shatter, and others. A good way to use your kief is to make moon rocks. These are a combination of flower, hash oil, and kief and are an accepted form of homemade concentrates.

Hash: Hash can be used like most other concentrates – but also like flower as well.

·         Put It In a Joint: You can roll up hash in a joint like you would with kief. The hash will up the potency of your joint.

·         Smoke a Bowl: Hashish itself can be put into a bowl and smoked just like flower. Hash is typically very strong, so not as much will be needed as flower.

·         Dab: If made correctly hash can be dabbed like other concentrates. With enough heat, the hash will be melted into a liquid that can then be dabbed.

Kief vs. Hash

In the end, whichever you like better is really personal preference.

Though both kief and hash have distinct differences, the end result is the same – you’ll be high.

How Much Does Hash Cost?

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 20 April 2021 in Canna Blog

Many cannabis lovers and enthusiasts are turning to concentrates and other ways of consuming cannabis, especially if they’re seeking a next-level high.

And, when talking about concentrates, it’s impossible not to mention hash or hashish. We'll answer all your questions – or, better yet, let's hash it out...

closeup of hash

What is Hash?

Hash has been used for both recreational and medicinal purposes – Its history goes back to approximately 900AD.

Hash is a concentrated form of cannabis and contains very high levels of THC, it is produced by pressing the resin glands of the cannabis plant together. 

In simple terms, hash is basically just pressed and heated kief. The powdery kief transforms into the brick-like structure that hash is known for, during the production process. 

Hash can be consumed in numerous ways. It can be consumed orally, smoked, or vaporized. You can smoke it on its own or you can mix it in with your flower. Chemically extracted hash such as shatter and wax can be vaporized with a dab rig or with a vape/ dab pen that works with concentrates. 

Where Can I Find Hash?

Essentially all your favorite concentrates are made from hash and you can typically find hash and other concentrates at most of your dispensaries. Colorado is home to some of the best companies specializing in cannabis concentrates and the cannabis industry in the state has been maturing since legalization in 2012

On the other hand, you could also DIY your own hash at home. All you’ll need are simple products you can find in your home, and obviously some good ol’ kief. 

The first step is to put your kief in between some parchment paper. The next step is to press and heat the parchment paper and its components with a flat iron or hair straightener. After being heated, the substance will turn into a solid/ liquid that can be smoked, vaporized, or dabbed with a rig. 

You can also make hash by just using your hands - take your kief/ flower, then press and roll them in your hands until a paste-like texture is achieved. Old school style.

How Much Does Hash Cost?

Most dispensaries will offer $10-$40 a gram for water-based hash. This includes bubble hash, temple hash, and hand-pressed hash. The range depends on the quality and from where you purchase the hash form. 

Chemically extracted hash can cost anywhere from $20-$80 depending on the quality and THC content.

Chemically extracted hash includes shatter, budder, wax, and BHO

Hash is cheaper than flower because it is made out of kief whereas marijuana buds are composed of the whole plant. Although hash is more concentrated,

Frenchy Cannoli is gone. And with his passing, a gaping hole left behind in the cannabis community. Born in France is 1956, Frenchy traveled the world learning the art form of hashish of which he shared openly. His journeys took him to such hash-meccas as India, Thailand, Japan, and the Philippines where he studied and perfected their traditional extraction methods. A guru in every right, Frenchy humbly claimed there will always be more to know about this ancient art, & was ever a student of the plant. Complications from surgery he underwent on 7/18 have been cited as the cause of his death. He was only 64.

Propane Hash Oil

Posted by CANNASaver on Saturday, 28 August 2021 in Canna Blog

We sure love our marijuana concentrates. Cannabis concentrates are a huge staple in the marijuana industry. With marijuana consumption increasing around the country, more people are either aware of “dabbing/dabs” or are currently hitting one.

Marijuana concentrates are made using a variety of marijuana extraction methods. 

Solvents such as butane, CO2, and propane are used to extract desired compounds from marijuana flower.

Concentrates come in several different forms, but today, we’re going to look at my favorite kind of concentrate known as Propane Hash Oil (PHO). 

Propane’s interesting chemical make-up gives this kind of hash oil potential for maintaining terpene compounds found in the trichomes

Let’s look at PHO a little closer (no, not the Vietnamese soup – although that sounds nice, too)...

Clean Burning Propane: What is Propane Hash Oil?

If we’re anything like Hank Hill, we love our “propane and propane accessories.” 

Marijuana extracted through propane as the main solvent during the extraction process is called Propane Hash Oil or PHO for short. 

PHO is recognizable by its bright yellow color and is often known as “honey.”

It also tends to have a “buddery” consistency. 

PHO is made using only propane as a solvent. 

Propane’s extremely low boiling point, -43.6ºF, allows extraction specialists to separate more of the terpenes during the concentrate extraction. 

It also removes more of the solvent in the end.

PHO is consumed in a variety of ways: oil rigs, pens, or even joints

PHO vs. BHO: What is the Difference?

Are you a BHO or PHO kind of person? 

What’s the difference? 

Well…

One big difference between PHO and BHO (Butane Hash Oil) is consistency

PHO more often than not will have a buddery consistency (softer) whereas BHO will more likely have a shatter consistency (glasslike, brittle).  

Another difference between the two is the boiling point. Propane has a lower boiling point (43.6º F) than butane (32º F) which means little heat is needed to purge the solvent. 

This temperature difference affects the consistency of the concentrate and makes it much richer in terpenes. 

Propane hash oil is also known for having fewer residual solvents in the concentrate. 

This is a HUGE deal.

PHO Safety

With concentrates, there is always a risk of a gas leak that could spark and cause an explosion. 

PHO extraction tends to be a safer means for companies to operate in a licensed facility. Closed-loop extraction systems ensure propane doesn’t leak. 

how to smoke propane hash oil

How To Smoke PHO

Unlike smoking a bowl, you are going to need a specific set of tools. Tools that will make any wax concentrate cower in fear of you.

The Tools Needed:

  • A dab rig - A small, bong-like smoking apparatus 

  • Nectar collector - A straw-like smoking device

  • Vape Pen - Concentrate vaporizer

When using a Nectar Collector, specifically designed trays/dishes are a must. 

These kinds of products are made out of glass, quartz, or silicone. 

After putting a small dab onto the container, blowtorch the tip of the collector. 

While heated, drag the hot nail across the wax while sucking through the mouthpiece.
