Ganesh Vapes & GreenRush Concentrates A Winning Combination

BHO concentrates are a staple in the recreational scene. Many of the notable extraction companies use butane to extract the THC, CBD, and terpenes from the plant material which leaves the final solvent that is dabbed. The excess butane and other impurities are purged out with heat and what’s left is your concentrate.

Slight variations of extraction variables paired with different cannabis strains is what gives you all of your many concentrate varieties. The Oregonian released a story citing a study by Portland State University chemistry professor Robert Strongin. The article states carcinogens are released when terpenes present in butane hash oil (BHO) are vaporized on nails at temperatures above 750 degrees Fahrenheit and 932 degrees Fahrenheit.  Methacrolein and benzene are the carcinogens in question, respectively.

The Oregonian doesn’t specify what brand of concentrates were used in the study, only the terpene profiles and that they were BHO. “We don’t want to say things like this are just bad,” Strongin told The Oregonian. “It really depends on the user.”

The most popular type of equipment used for low temp dabbing is a type of nail called a “quartz banger,” which is a small bucket that you scoop your dabs into. Pair this with carb cap that acts as a seal to retain as much heat in the nail as possible to melt the dab and cut down on waste.  Quartz is the most popular because it heats up relatively quickly and has great retention properties.

The temperature goal for successful low temp dabbing is between 350 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit, High Times reports. This allows the cannabinoids and terpenes to melt all the way; providing the full spectrum of the strain’s effect without burning your throat and scorching the flavor.

The smaller the dab, the less you will want the nail to heat up, and vice-versa. You will know if your nail is too hot because the remnant oil will be a singed and black instead of warm and brown. It should be easily cleaned up with a Q-tip. Cleaning your nail after every dab will keep your nail fresh for months and keep your dabs tasting clean. An electronic nail provides an easier way to experience low temp dabs, but it can be costly if you want a reliable set-up. Consistently dabbing a torch and nail at low temperatures is absolutely possible, it just takes research and practice.

“Preference is part of it, but you never want to get any concentrate too hot, Linn said.” “It burns away the terpenes, which in effect takes away from the taste and the potency of the product.”

There are several factors to consider when your cooling down your nail, but the most important part is to have the same starting point for every dab; so heat the nail red hot, until it’s slightly glowing orange. A nail that is visibly glowing orange or red will be around 800 degrees Fahrenheit, per High Times. Let it cool down from this point for anywhere from 45 seconds to a minute and 30 seconds depending on the thickness of your nail and the size of your dab. Linn explains there will be a trial and error period for each nail and type of solvent (rosin, distillate, shatter, etc,) to zero in the heat to maximize the taste and effect.

“Most people take minimally sized dabs compared to some of the dabs I’ve taken,” Linn continued, “it depends on where people are at with their tolerance level.”

Low Temp Dabs: What You Should Know

Anyone who has been dabbing or smoking concentrates for a long time has most likely taken dabs off a hot nail. Red hot, or even being close to red hot, isn’t the proper way to dab.

Nobody knows any better at first. You attempt to dab like you smoke weed, just put heat to solvent and get high, but through the years of trial and error and learn there is a lot more subtlety and technique to dab the correct way.

If you’ve ever heard of low temp dabbing, now is the time to learn what’ve you’ve been missing. The easiest way to make sure your dab is low temperature is simply by using your stopwatch app on your smartphone. Set it up and fire up your torch. Heat your torch up and when it starts glowing red/orange, hit the lap button.

Now you’re letting the nail cooldown watch your timer.

The amount of time you let the nail cool down really depends on the type of nail, let’s just say it’s quartz. Most quartz nails take at least 45 seconds to cool down before you hit the correct temperature.

If it’s thick like a 4mm, then you will want to wait up to a minute and thirty seconds.

There will be a three to five dab practice period when you’re zeroing the timing of your nail.

If you see the remaining oil in your nail is black or its crusted to the nail, it was too hot when you did you dab. You want a warm brown puddle for remains. This will make for easy clean up with Q-tips. If you didn’t get it all cleaned quite quickly enough, you can burn off the rest with your torch with ease.

Learn About The Big Wicked Sugar Wax

Big City Lights is the pungent purple offspring of Dark Desire and Frisco OG. Dark Desire is a complex and vibrant plant. It was created by a well-known breeder, Gooeybreeder. This plant is cooperative for growers and smokers alike. Its color is there from the onset, there is no need to manipulate variables to bring out the color. The smoke is pungent with a long lasting high, SeedFinder reports. Frisco OG is known as a sticky hybrid with great flavor and giggle-inducing effects, per SeedFinder.

The result of crossing these two strains is a sativa-hybrid with noticeable pain-relieving waves. Big City Lights has loud berry terpene profile that matches her brilliant purple color, she’s “oozing berry goodness,” according to GreenRush Lead Grower, Blake Brush.

Big City Lights has a high rate of plants that turn into hermaphrodites, meaning the plant starts growing male and female parts and this ruins the flowering process, but she is so good that it’s worth the risk. So, if you’re lucky enough to find some of it in concentrate form, you better hop on it. One dab of these potent golden crystals will feel like you just smoked an entire eighth of Big City Lights. The berry terpenes are pouring out of these wet crystals. Take a dab after work to relieve some pain without crashing for the rest of the night.

Dr. Who #6 Sugar Wax Highlight

The Dr. Who #6 strain is one of the few strains in GreenRush’s garden that wasn’t hand bred by their Lead Grower, Blake Brush. This one was designed by TGA Subcool Seeds, and is the time-traveling offspring of Mad Scientist and Timewreck.

Dr. Who #6 test results came back with high amounts of Myrcene, which is a terpene associated with a spicy flavor and sedative effects. Dr. Who #6 has both in spades, along with strong grape/berry terpenes that shine through in the aroma and flavor.

Dr. Who #6 will turn almost jet black in the last two weeks of the flowering process. The trichomes shine in front of the black/purple flower backdrop. After Dr. Who #6 is put through the extraction process, it becomes a pale-yellow wax that resembles broken honey combs.

“Dr Who sugar wax from has the most exotic smells. Best way I can describe it is grape kush laced w sour skunk juice. If youre a concentrate head, you’ve gotta try it,” Brush exuded on Instagram.

Expect a potent hybrid high, with equal parts body relaxation and mental clarity. The Dr. Who #6 is potent, but still forgiving. Rookie smokers would be best to avoid this strain during the day, but if you’re a veteran in the cannabis game this one can power you through a rough day. Especially if you’re sore from a hard workout or mentally worn out from the daily grind called life.

Locktite Sugar Wax Highlight

GreenRush’s Locktite is the combination of one of their most potent flowers, Mt. Rainier and a legendary favorite, Gorilla Glue #4. Mt. Rainier was the product of Northern Lights #5 and White Lotus; It provides the potency in the Locktite. Gorilla Glue #4 was bred by Josey Whales and is killing it in the Washington recreational market because of its fluffy trichome coated flowers that fill the bag. As a budtender, there isn’t a strain I sell more of than Gorilla Glue #4, no matter the brand.

The Locktite flowers kept the fluffy flower structure of the Gorilla Glue #4. The pale green color allows the orange hairs and trichome spread to stand out, making this one of the prettiest girls in the garden. Locktite contains strong diesel and citrus terpenes in both aroma and flavor profiles.

Sugar wax is a great way to experience a strain’s smell. The terpenes are so concentrated and potent after extraction that they can tinge your nose, like some smelling-salts. The crystals can be anywhere from a dry wax consistency to a wet and gooey jelly type consistency. Both are user-friendly and easy to scoop up with a d dabber. Make sure to dab this Locktite on a low-temperature nail to really experience the citrusy diesel fumes.

Purple Three Way Sugar Wax Highlight

The Purple Three Way sugar wax is a kinky cross of Professor Chaos and Purple Cat Piss (Purple Rain). Professor Chaos is a dank purple sativa hybrid that pairs mental stimulation with pain-relieving effects. This strain has prominent grape and berry terpenes that really set it apart from other strains in the garden.

Purple Cat Piss is a mystery stain, but a good guess as to what it might be is a Purple Kush mixed with Super Silver Haze. This is a dark purple flower that exudes berries and notable hints of haze. This strain also packs pain-relieving effects with a strong body relaxation, a classic potent purple indica. This strain is a joy for growers and smokers alike and is a favorite of a few KushMart budtenders.

Purple three way sugar wax

The Purple Three Way sugar wax is a sticky crumble consistency. The crystals shine in the light and cake together. This is a solvent that is easy to work with, you can ball it up and stick it to your dab tool with little issues.

Tangelina Jolie Shatter Highlight

Shatter can get a bad wrap with smokers. Everyone is so hyped with all the new concentrates that are coming out: Honey crystal, terp sauce, terp sugar, sugar wax, distillate, and RSO are all newer types of extracts and shatter gets overshadowed. Sometimes it’s harder to handle, but shatter provides a completely different flavor and experience than other concentrates, and dabbers should try all of them. No point in missing out on awesome strains, simply because you don’t want to heat your dab tool to ensure the shatter doesn’t fall off.

Tangelina Jolie could never be over shadowed, it’s Orange Crush likeness and citrus terpene profile explode from the flower and remain intact in shatter form. Tangelina Jolie is one of Blake Brush’s flagship strains. Formerly of RedEyed Genetics, Brush designed many of Green Rush’s strains by hand. Combining Tangie’s pungent citrus and limonene terpene profile with Epoxy OG’s Gorilla Glue #4 influence gives the Tangelina Jolie the triple threat in bag appeal, taste/aroma, and effect.

Tangolina Jolie shatter

Learn About Our Blue Sugar Cookies Snap and Pull

Blue Sugar Cookies sound like groupies for the Blue Man Group, but it happens to be another sweet name for a cannabis strain. Blue Sugar Cookies came about by breeding Blueberry with the Sugar Cookies strain. Blueberry was bred by notorious breeder DJ Short through combining several exotic landrace strains, Leafly reports. This is the same Blueberry that was combined with Super Silver Haze and is the indica parent used to create Blue Dream.

Sugar Cookies is a rare strain that was bred by Oregon Green Seed, per SeedFinder. She’s a combination of a Mint Girl Scout Cookies phenotype, Sugar Chunk and Chocolate Trip. The Sugar Cookies strain is a relaxing indica strain with an incredibly sweet smell.

Snap and pull is a form of extract that is lesser known than its counterparts like shatter and sugar wax, but it’s the most versatile of the bunch. If you leave snap and pull in a room temperature setting, it will become a gummy sticky consistency. You can roll it or ball it up which makes it easy to combine with flower in joints and blunts. Throw your Blue Sugar Cookies snap and pull in the freezer for a few minutes and it will turn into shatter. You can smash and break into any size pieces you need for the perfect dab.

The Blue Sugar Cookies snap and pull is a relaxing indica hybrid; it carries Sugar Cookies sweet and pungent smell with Blueberry’s flavorful terpene profile that pops on your pallet. The combination of sweet and berry terpenes is like dabbing a slice of blueberry pie in front of a warm fireplace in the dead of winter.

It’s reported to have equal parts head and body highs, but is most likely a 70/30 indica-dominant hybrid, according to AllBud. The strain carries with it strong pineapple tasting terpenes with hints of lemon, citrus and pine.
