Although concentrates aren’t for everyone, they do offer several benefits, including:
Greater potency. The single greatest advantage to cannabis concentrates is that they’re so much more potent than regular flower. This is especially important for medical patients who need the extra potency to help treat their condition, or for adult-use consumers who prefer the added potency.
Quicker consumption. Due to their greater potency, concentrates require a smaller dose in less time. In fact, a quick “dab” (the slang term for concentrates) can provide an almost instant effect in mere seconds.
More cost effective. Although concentrates are more expensive per gram than flower, they will last much longer, again, due to their increased potency. Of course, this depends on your consumption method and frequency. But dollar-for-dollar concentrates generally are more cost-effective.
