Part of my problem is that its all been gray market in NY

Unfortunately there's no real way to know, whoever is selling it to you could be calling it whatever, not to mention whoever is making it could be calling it whatever, so if you trust the people, know the sources and their knowledge then sure. Otherwise take it all with a huge grain of salt as all the different names become overlapped and used interchangeably by many people...

Isn't that where micro-dosing or moderation comes in? There is always CBD.

For sure. I'm not a disty-head myself. I'm just don't hate it like a lot of concentrate-heads do. When I'm talking about on the go use, I'm referring to carts. There are times where one little toot on a rosin cart would make me a little too high for the situation. A little toot on a disty cart never does that for me despite having a much higher THC %.

It's nice to have different tools in the box.

Anything worth doing, is worth overdoing.
Different trates for different times.

Carts are great by the bedside, in the car (passenger ;)), around the barn, at the beach. I only use live resin carts because I prefer the flavor. I'm not interested in the terp flavored disty carts because I don't want the additives. Pure distillate works fine, but the taste sucks.

For dabs, I like live resin and hash rosin. I'm a flavor chaser and like terpy but not so saucy that it makes a mess.

I use bubble hash for topping herb. When you want to turbo charge your favorite flower. :nod:

Shatter and cheaper stuff for making edibles and tincture.

A question about water hash. I was told to keep it in the freezer, when taking it out for use do you need to let it warm up first before scooping out a little?

I would. Immediately opening the frozen jar could introduce moisture.



I don't know if this is the best place for this, but I'm trying to spark a little more concentrate discussion around here.

If solventless hash teaches us one thing, let it be an understanding that trichomes are what we are after. The entire trichome head and not the plant. Not the leaves or buds or flowers or stems, not the pistils or stigmas, or any other plant feature that cannabis shares with many others. Consider the plant the carrier, the same way a rolling paper carries herb, the herb carries trichomes.

This website is written by.... I guess I'd call him a "solventless extremist". While I agree with most of what he writes, I'm more of a solventless enthusiast than an extremist.

Plenty of interesting posts there. I appreciate people taking their hash seriously.

Thanks for an interesting link. A bit funny that the link the writer includes about the 2016 bioavailability study concludes that inhalers are the Most Efficient [I guess vaping comes in second]. I tried an inhaler once: tasted so bad that I coughed up the entire hit.

Re concentrate discussion: My Doc told me more concentrates/less herbs [thinking it's fewer hits] for my lungs. But if the effects don't last as long, it doesn't really help. So I'd appreciate recommendations for an indica concentrate with effects that last more than a couple of hours.

Have you tired any of the hash/live rosin options in FL? As far as longevity of effects, that will be your best bet. 710 Labs is reliable. But they're a pain in the ass to order from in The Free State. For a budget option, I've been impressed with Surterra.
