Cannabis Flowers and Leaves (Shake)
Commonly referred to as buds, the flowers at the cannabis plant are the most potent for medicinal properties. The leaves of the cannabis plant also contain some cannabinoids, but in much lower concentration. The flowers and leaves of the plant can be smoked, vaporized or used to prepare edibles.
Hash or Hashish is manufactured by separating the trichomes from the cannabis flowers, to create a concentrated dose of this specific part of the cannabis plant. The trichomes are then processed into a relatively solid paste or block. Hash can be somewhat powdery or more solid and sticky, depending on exactly how it was processed and the methods of extraction.
Kief is also made from the trichome part of the cannabis flower. Kief is just the dried trichomes, without any further processing. It comes as a dry powder. It can be smoked or vaporized or used to make edibles. It is often sprinkled on the top of the cannabis before smoking or vaporizing to augment the trichome content in the flowers. Some grinders (used to evenly cut up the cannabis flowers before vaporizing or smoking) have a small mesh screen at the bottom for the purpose of collecting kief over time.
Ear wax marijuana derives its name from appearance, which appears as a yellowy-green waxy material. Extracted through different means, most commonly through a butane tank or a cleaner method, CO2, it is said to contain between 50 percent and 90 percent THC, making it a drug so potent that it’s reserved only for patients with high tolerance, who are in need of a high potency medication.
