THC Concentrate Varieties



KindPeoples THC Concentrate Kief

Kief is created by “dry sifting,” tumbling cannabis flowers, or trimming to shake the resin away from the plant matter. Kief still contains a significant portion of plant material. These loose resin crystals can be sprinkled into a joint, eaten, vaporized, or smoked as-is.

THC Concentrate Hash KindPeoples Santa Cruz

Hash comes crumbly, in patty form, or rolled into a ball. The distinction between types of hash is due to how it is processed. Some hash makers Microplane their hash patties to increase the surface area, allowing a cohesive dryness that improves the color and taste. Bubble hash is solventless and is made with an ice extraction method.

Shatter is made using a solvent-based process to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis plant material. The extracted oil is then heated in a vacuum, which evaporates the solvent, leaving a highly concentrated cannabis oil with an amber glass-like consistency that is easy to break apart to vape or dab.
