THC Distillate is a highly potent cannabis concentrate with a pure, translucent appearance. It is extracted from raw cannabis and hemp plants through a series of extraction and distillation techniques. The final product is often used in vape cartridges, edibles and topical products for its potent, smooth and odorless properties. While THC Distillate is very versatile, it is still a powerful extract that can cause strong effects and inexperienced users should start low and go slow when using it for the first time.
While you may see THC Distillate sold in vape pens (like the ones offered by Verts Dispensary) most of the time it’s consumed as a sublingual oil. It’s recommended to take your desired dosage of THC Distillate with a THC Distillate syringe and place it directly under the tongue for up to 90 seconds. This allows it to bypass the digestive system and absorb into the bloodstream through the mucous membranes, producing effects within 15-45 minutes.

Another way to use THC Distillate is to add it to other cannabis products like gummies or chocolates to create your own edible. This will increase the THC content in your finished product while enhancing flavor, texture and the overall effect of the cannabis. It is also suggested to bind THC Distillate to a carrier fat such as coconut, MCT or butter before consumption for faster absorption since THC cannabinoids bind to fat.
Inhaling THC Distillate through a dab rig or pen produces stronger effects that last longer than vaping it. It can be smoked on its own or mixed with a bowl of flower to enhance the taste and potency of your smoke. Some producers will even reintroduce the original terpene blends back into THC Distillate intended for smoking to make it more flavorful and less viscous for dabbing.
