Concentrates are favourites for heavy cannabis consumers.

Concentrates, also known as extracts, include high potency products like resin, hash, and kief, which can offer the best bang for your buck in terms of getting a heavy, fast-acting high.

With all cannabis consumption, the idea of “start low and go slow” is a good rule to follow, especially with concentrates.

If you’re planning on using concentrates, keep in mind that as per the Cannabis Act, Canadian adults can carry up to 30 grams of dried legal cannabis on their person in public, which equals 7.5 grams of concentrates, be it solid or liquid.

Similar to topicals, concentrates haven’t been hyped as much as other Legalization 2.0 products, like weed-infused drinks and food, but they’re sure to be a go-to among niche consumers.

These are seven new Canadian concentrates you can buy this year.

Canna Farms BC Bubble Hash

Maker: Canna Farms, a subsidiary of VIVO Cannabis
Dose: 50% to 65% THC
Price: Approx. $36 per 1 g unit, prices vary by province

Canna Farms concentrates are all solvent-free and use an ice water extraction method, which means they keep more of the terpenes and flavour intact. The Bubble Hash boasts 500 to 650 mg of THC per unit 1 g unit.

Canna Farms BC Live Rosin and Hash Rosin

Maker: Canna Farms, a subsidiary of VIVO Cannabis
Dose: 60% to 85% THC
Price: Approx. $43 per 0.5 g unit, prices vary by province

Like the BC Bubble Hash, Canna Farms BC Live Rosin as well as its Hash Rosin are both solventless and don’t use heat-dry methods. The Live Rosin is literally that: a rosin that uses fresh (live) flower throughout the entire manufacturing process.

Canna Farms BC Kief

Maker: Canna Farms, a subsidiary of VIVO Cannabis
Dose: 25% to 35% THC
Price: Approx. $22 to $25 per 1 g unit, prices vary by province
