Navigating the World of Cannabis Concentrates (CRC, Resin, Rosin, Live Concentrates, & Bubble Hash)

Here at Joyology, we believe that happiness is not a destination, it’s a way of life — and there’s nothing that brings us more joy than cannabis! Today we are diving into one of our favorite topics: navigating and exploring the world of cannabis concentrates. 


Follow along as we explore CRC, resin, rosin, live concentrates, and bubble hash! 


CRC Concentrates

CRC, short for Color Remediation Column, stands as a refinement process in cannabis extraction that removes unwanted pigments and impurities from concentrates.

This technique typically involves passing the extracted oil through a specialized filtration system containing various adsorbents and filter media. As these materials selectively absorb undesirable compounds, they result in a cleaner and more visually appealing final product.


Diamond concentrates, CRC live resin, and CRC cartridges (favored for their potency and consistency) are among the popular CRC products available on the market. Since CRC concentrates often have a clearer and more vibrant color due to the removal of certain impurities, they offer a smoother and more flavorful consumption experience. 


However, some argue that the CRC process may strip away beneficial terpenes, affecting the overall aroma and flavor of the concentrate. Additionally, there are concerns about the end-product purity of CRC concentrates, as the process can potentially introduce new contaminants. Implementing CRC filtration systems can also be expensive, leading to higher retail prices for consumers.

Overall, these concentrates are a great option for folks looking for a unique concentrate to purchase.

Resin Concentrates

Resin concentrates are cannabis extracts that producers create through solvent-based or solventless extraction methods. They often contain high concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes, resulting in a fuller spectrum of effects and flavors compared to concentrates produced through more refined methods like distillation.

Typically we see resin concentrates ranging from sticky and viscous to solid and brittle, depending on factors such as extraction method and post-processing techniques. Due to their high cannabinoid content, resin concentrates are known for their strong psychoactive and potentially therapeutic effects. Because of this, users can feel assured in receiving a quality cannabis experience.


However, depending on the extraction method and source material, resin concentrates may contain residual solvents or other contaminants. Some resin concentrates are also prone to degradation over time, requiring proper storage conditions to maintain their quality and potency.


If you live by the mantra that there is no such thing as “too high,” this is the concentrate for you!


Rosin Concentrates

Next, let’s take a look at Rosin. These concentrates are solventless cannabis extracts produced through the application of heat and pressure to cannabis flower or hash. This process results in the extraction of cannabinoids and terpenes without the use of any solvents.


Since rosin extraction does not involve the use of any solvents, consumers can feel confident in choosing it as a safer and more natural alternative to solvent-based concentrates. The low-temperature extraction process (also known as flash-frozen) preserves the delicate aromatic compounds found in cannabis, enhancing the flavor and aroma of rosin concentrates.


With that said, this extraction process makes rosin prone to a shorter shelf life. If you are one of those consumers that takes months to get through a gram of concentrate, this may not be the concentrate for you. 


Live Concentrates

Next on our list are Live Concentrates! These products are cannabis extracts made from freshly harvested, uncured cannabis plants. This process preserves the plant’s natural terpene profile, resulting in concentrates with vibrant flavors and aromas.


Live extraction methods typically involve the use of cold temperatures and solvents like butane or CO2 to preserve the volatile compounds found in fresh cannabis. This approach ensures that live concentrates retain their aromatic complexity and therapeutic potential.


Certain cannabis strains are particularly well-suited for live extraction due to their unique terpene profiles and resinous trichomes. Strains like Sour Diesel, Gelato, and Wedding Cake are popular choices for producing flavorful and potent live concentrates.


Overall, these concentrates are for the terpene fanatics!


Bubble Hash

Producers make bubble hash, a solventless cannabis concentrate, by agitating cannabis flower or trim in ice water to separate the trichome glands from the plant material. They then filter the mixture through progressively finer screens to collect the resinous trichomes, which they dry and press into hashish.

Bubble hash typically has a crumbly or sandy texture and retains the natural flavors and aromas of the cannabis strains used in its production. Proper storage in a cool, dark place is essential to preserve its freshness and potency. It can be smoked, vaporized, or added to edibles for a potent and flavorful experience.

Considering this, the user who values ‘au naturel’ above all else will find this concentrate best suited for them.
