Why Concentrates?

Marijuana concentrates are being used to treat a variety of complaints including anxiety, pain, and insomnia. Many medical marijuana patients find that dabbing concentrates like wax or shatter is the fastest way to gain relief from their symptoms. While the process of packing bowl after bowl in the quest to achieve an adequate high can become tedious and time-consuming, with a quick hit or two off the dab rig, you’re good to go. That quick relief comes with a price, though, and concentrates can seem a bit expensive if you’re used to buying cheap weed in Denver and getting $100 ounce deals. Luckily, there are plenty of great concentrates deals, too, if you know where to look. In fact, some of the best bargains to be found at Denver dispensaries are medical concentrates deals. Check out these latest deals that prove cheap wax and shatter in Denver is not just a myth.

Medical Concentrates Ounce deals

The Joint by Cannabis, a dispensary in Denver Highlands,  has an awesome medical concentrates deal going on right now if you’re in the position to stock up. For $350, you can get an ounce of Craft or Mahatma wax or shatter, which is about the best concentrates ounce deal Denver shoppers can hope for. Another place you can get a good concentrates ounce deal is at the southwest Denver dispensary Colorado Cannabis Connection, where medical customers receive 20% off storewide with the CannaSaver dispensary deals coupon. If you’re looking for a Denver dispensary on Kipling, Colorado Cannabis Connection is definitely worthy of a visit.

More Denver Medical Wax and Shatter Deals

This Savvy Stoner doesn’t always have the cash on hand to take advantage of a concentrate ounce deal, but I still manage to get deep discounts on cheap wax and cheap shatter even if I’m only getting a gram or two. One dispensary near Federal blvd. in Denver is High Street Growers. There, you can score a medical concentrates deal on a gram of Denver Dab Company wax or shatter for only $18, tax included. They have some of the best concentrates deals on Federal that you’re going to find. Another good one to check out is Herbal Remedies. If you haven’t yet been to Herbal Remedies, this Alameda ave. dispensary in Denver has a special discount for first-time patients, offering a gram of house wax or shatter for just $15. That’s a very low price for medical concentrates, so if you haven’t yet visited this dispensary near Lakewood, take advantage.

Vape deals, distillate deals, and other discount concentrates

Another way to score good medical deals on concentrates in Denver is to try out some of the other products like vapes and distillates. If you’re looking for deals on distillate or other vaping products, CannaSaver is the easiest way to find cheap vape pens, cheap vape cartridges, cheap distillate syringes, cheap vape pen batteries, and more from Denver dispensaries. Golden Meds Leetsdale dispensary has Sperex ½ gram distillate syringes on sale for just $25, and a 500mg Flo distillate cartridge is just $40. At Ballpark Hollistic Dispensary in downtown Denver, you can get an Evolabs deal on the Evolabs Chroma cartridge for 20% off. At RiverRock South, they have an O.Pen cartridges deal for 30% off. If you want a deal on OpenVape cartridges, head to La Conte’s Clone bar North location where you can get them for 30% off. La Conte’s Clone Bar North has some of the best dispensary deals Denver north has to offer. They also have a centrally located dispensary in downtown Denver.

Dab a little, save a lot

While concentrates can seem expensive upfront, a little goes an extremely long way, so you really do get your money’s worth. Especially if you take advantage of the recreational or medical concentrates deals Denver dispensaries are offering on CannaSaver, you’re really getting a bargain. If an ounce of flower ordinarily lasts you a week, with a little wax or shatter added on as a bowl topper, that same ounce will last you two weeks, so you’re really saving money in the long run. That’s how the Savvy Stoner justifies it, anyway! Now, to the dispensary!

Medical vs Recreational Weed

Posted by CANNASaver on Tuesday, 23 March 2021 in

Many countries and US states are legalizing cannabis for both medicinal and recreational use. If you’re wondering what the difference between recreational vs. medical cannabis… the biggest difference is ultimately the needs of the user.

When talking about medical marijuana, it’s about using the whole plant or the cannabinoids within it to alleviate or help improve symptoms of certain medical issues such as epilepsy, rheumatoid arthritis, and even cancer.

On the other hand, recreational marijuana is used for reasons that are not medical. Recreational users use marijuana for personal pleasure and enjoyment, or to relieve stress and anxiety. Although recreational users may also seek the therapeutic benefits of cannabis, they don’t require it in the same sense as medical users.

Differences Between Medical vs Recreational Weed

THC/CBD levels

Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC is the psychoactive compound in marijuana. Recreational marijuana usually has more THC content than medical cannabis. Those who use cannabis for recreational purposes usually seek the ‘high’ that comes with smoking cannabis. This is why you’ll find that recreational strains tend to have a higher THC content compared to medical strains. But that’s not to say recreational users don’t love CBD. 

Medical cannabis contains a higher Cannabidiol or CBD content than the recreational type. This compound found in the cannabis plant doesn’t make you ‘high’. CBD is popular for relieving pain and easing symptoms from various medical conditions. CBD is also scientifically proven to have anti-inflammatory and anti-carcinogenic properties. It can also produce a calming effect that can balance the anxiety-inducing effects of THC. 

Legalization

Today, fourteen states have legalized cannabis for recreational use with sixteen states decriminalizing the substance. The public understanding of cannabis has led to a decrease in the stigma associated with it, especially around medical usage. However, it’s important to know the rules surrounding cannabis for specific states as cannabis is fully illegal in some states such as Alabama and Kansas. Getting caught with cannabis in these states can come with hefty fines and even jail time. 

To obtain medical marijuana, you must obtain a recommendation from your doctor. The doctor must determine if you have a qualifying condition to access medical marijuana. This recommendation must be renewed regularly and you must be 18 to purchase medical marijuana from a dispensary. In some cases, legal access is granted for minors who suffer from chronic illness. Patients may also be allowed to grow their own cannabis plants.

Washington and Colorado were the first states to legalize recreational cannabis for some adults. Today recreational cannabis is legal in several states including Alaska, Arizona, and Maine. In the states where it is legal, you need to be over 21 to purchase recreational cannabis from dispensaries. Recreational users, (depending on where you live) can also choose to grow their own cannabis plant. However, the allowed scale of crops is much smaller than those of medical users.

Price

When it comes to the price difference between medical and recreational cannabis, many factors come into play. Although In most cases, medical marijuana users will pay less than their recreational counterparts. 

Medical cannabis is usually priced and taxed lower than the recreational kind. Because medical cannabis is not assisted or covered by most insurance companies, legal states keep taxes low to ensure it’s accessibility to those who need it. Additionally, medical cannabis doesn’t experience the same retail markup as the recreational kind. Cannabis sold for recreational use is subject to price fluctuations depending on market conditions and supply.

Quality

When talking about quality, it’s all about where you’re getting your weed from. You can find both quality recreational and medical cannabis from reputable dispensaries or growers. 

Medical and recreational cannabis undergo the same growing process, the differences are in its cultivation and production. Medical cannabis undergoes a strict and controlled process before it’s available to patients and is usually grown indoors. 

Recreational cannabis can be grown indoors and outdoors, however, the environment is less controlled and monitored. Additionally, some recreational plants might have higher levels of pesticides, as it is not strictly regulated like medical cannabis. This is not to say recreational cannabis isn’t safe, you just need to get your weed from a reputable and trustworthy source.

Benefits and Availability

There are a variety of products emerging from the cannabis industry, both medical and recreational. From topicals, oils, candies, and beverages. There are so many new options for users to consume cannabis without actually smoking it. 

One thing about the medical cannabis industry is that it offers a wider scope of products because many of those who use medical marijuana usually opt for smoking alternatives. Alternatives include tinctures, capsules, topicals, and food products. Medical products also have higher concentrations of CBD because of their pain-relieving effects.

Although many recreational users enjoy the ‘high’ they get from cannabis, they also realize the benefits of products with higher CBD levels. Many recreational users turn to cannabis to ease symptoms of anxiety or depression and seek products with CBD to offset the psychoactive effects of THC, which can be known to induce symptoms of anxiety.

Cannabis overall can produce feelings of calm and ease, so no wonder why those who have trouble relaxing turn to the plant to alleviate their symptoms. As recreational cannabis usage becomes less stigmatized, the scope of products offered for recreational is also broadening. It won’t be long from now until we start seeing an influx of new and innovative products hit the shelves at our local dispensaries.

To Dab or Not to Dab - What is Your Question?

Posted by CANNASaver on Friday, 15 September 2017 in Canna Blog

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.
