The long-time question of concentrates vs flower.  This isn’t something that’s necessarily a debate, but more an opinion or a preference.  Concentrates and curated flower originate from the same product, the cannabis flower.  Flower itself goes through a unique process from harvest and curation to special trimming until there’s a beautiful, fresh bud ready to package.  You ingest cannabis flower mainly through combustion with a bowl or rolling a joint while some people cook with it.  Concentrates are a bit different and typically offer a heavier dose of cannabinoids.  A good way to think of concentrates is just like it sounds.  In the freezer aisle are juice concentrates.  These little frozen tubes contain so much concentrated fruit extract you only use a little at a time.  Cannabis concentrates are similar and contain a very condensed amount of extracted cannabis. They are typically produced and sold in the form of cartridges, wax, oil, shatter, kief and more.  A main method of ingestion for concentrates is called dabbing. Dabbing can include a few additional steps to flower consumption and requires higher heat accessories. Another method is simply dosing under the tongue with RSO or sprinkling the kief concentrate on top of a bowl.
