Things To Know When Buying Dabs In Washington

Even when it comes to concentrates and other extracts, many people are currently visiting weed stores and asking for whatever has the highest THC. While the THC percentage is in fact a vital part of the purchasing experience, there is more to value than just high percentages.

One of the first and most important things you should be looking for at weed stores is who the experts are.  You’ve got to find budtenders you can trust!

Identify Dabbing Experts

By now you should be shopping for dabs and have gotten used to asking the budtender for information about what they like. If you don’t ask the budtender about what they’re smoking or dabbing, how can you know that they’re not feeding you a blind recommendation? Always engage in a thoughtful conversation with your budtenders so that they can identify themselves as dabbing experts or send you to the right person.

When it comes to RSO, CBD, and other medical marijuana-centric products, it is especially important to ask for a staff member who has experience using and selling these types of items.

It is extremely important to look and listen for a budtender or manager that is educated about the products people are asking about. If a staff member can only describe the products as dank, top-shelf, great, fire, super good, awesome, or any other basic positive adjective, double down on another question to see if they really know if it’s worth spending money on.

Consumers aren’t able to view the product outside of packaging in Washington state so it is extremely important for cannabis industry staff to be able to communicate accurate information. Overdosing on cannabis can ruin someone’s perspective and is one of the major hurdles holding many people back when it comes to legalization.

I follow this simple rule when it comes to dabs. If the budtenders haven’t tried it and nobody actually knows if the product is effective or tastes good, I’ll generally pass until next time. When it comes to our products though, GreenRush extracts with flower and our price point is usually cheaper than other top-shelf extract companies.

Brand Knowledge

There are seemingly thousands of brands that work in cannabis here in Washington. Many of these companies, ours included, offer cannabis in flower and oils. Some even take it a step further by creating edibles, lotions, topicals, and other cannabis-based products. If you keep an eye out for brands that focus more on education, flavor, experience, or lifestyle, you should be able to set yourself up for success.

GreenRush’s extracts are pesticide-free and our facility is known for cleanliness. If you’d like to know specific terpene profiles for our flower or oils, send us a DM on Instagram or Facebook.

Flavor & Terpenes Matter More Than THC %

For the last two years, Washington’s cannabis industry has battled with the importance of the THC percentages. All cannabis in Washington has to get tested at an accredited facility and there have been quite a few issues with this process thus far. Although THC predominately focuses on psychoactive effects, terpenes and THC combine to create a synergistic effect that can dictate specific types of effects or highs.

 

Adults 21 and over can purchase up to one ounce of usable cannabis flower, 16 ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, 72 ounces of cannabis drinkables, and 7 grams of cannabis concentrates.

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are:

Three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.

Living In Yakima? Ask For GreenRush Cannabis at Happy Time!

Yakima’s Happy Time is one of our newest retail partners and the only one currently in Yakima, WA. Having been lightly introduced to the 509, the GreenRush brand is excited to bring more pesticide-free cannabis products to the area. We are excited to provide more diamonds and more terp sauce to the people of Yakima!

If you haven’t already visited their store, you know that the Happy Time crew comes highly recommended and that they selection is second to none in the area. The selection at Happy Time is pretty extensive. Give them a call to ask about what they have!

Now that Happy Time is offering a smal variety of our extracts, daily dabbers will have access to pesticide-free concentrates with 95%+ THC and high percentages of terpenes. If you’re looking for diamonds, terp sauce, sugar wax, live resin, distillate, pull n snap, or shatter, ask for Happy Time to carry it and we’ll make sure to deliver only the best.

When you’re shopping for cannabis, follow our advice below for the best experience.

Be A Shallow Shopper

Not all cannabis is equal. In Washington state, the way certain brands produce and process cannabis can be the difference between sitting on a shelf for a year or selling out in a single day. If the weed looks good and you can smell it through the bag or through the glass, buy it. When it comes to GreenRush, there really is no question. When retailers place their order, we package fresh cannabis flower or fresh cannabis extracts and send it right on over.

If the cannabis buds you see in the store are covered in trichomes or if the flowers feel or sound dense when you shake the container,  buy it. Even if the cannabis ends up being a poor smoke, you’ll at least know more about what you’re going for. Good looking weed with lower THC numbers is generally always a better situation than higher THC cannabis that is cheaper, more dry, and outdoor.

Visit Pot Stop In Fremont For GreenRush

Fremont is home to a crazy Solstice parade, lovely local restaurants and cafes, and a Google campus. There is so much that contributes to this historic part of Seattle that it is hard to pick and choose as to what exactly is our favorite. Legal cannabis is all over Seattle and thousands of employees working across the city consume cannabis just like the rest of us.

What Is Shatter? Learn About Dabbing Cannabis Shatter Extracts

Did anyone else dab out for April 20th? In addition to all of the crazy flower we tried, there was zero chance we were going to leave out the dabs. In fact, we’ve got some new shatter this is KILLING the game right now. First, let’s get into some quick details about what shatter really is.

Cannabis concentrates have typically used solvents to remove the cannabinoids from the plant matter. For shatter, butane, CO2, or propane is run through the buds to extract the desired chemicals from the cannabis. The solvent(s) are then removed and we are left with an extract that could potentially get someone very high depending on the THC content.

 

 

GreenRush Strains For Cinco De Mayo - Shatter
These days, shatter is no longer the most popular form of cannabis concentrate. Live-resins, THCa diamonds, and vaping have become the hottest trends in dabbing. For shatter, this is a frequently used term to refer to the type of GreenRush product pictured above.
Shatter usually looks like golden honey unless it is of lower quality. Depending on the cannabis flower you’re extracting, shatter typically looks like a beautiful sap with varying degrees of transparency and color profiles. When this extract is “fresh out the oven” the consistency is very thick, but when it’s warm, the product turns into more of a glass. When we’re breaking apart the sheets of shatter, the glass-like substance shatters apart into small pieces for us to weigh out and bag up.

 

What are your thoughts on shatter? Is this a cannabis product that you enjoy? Do you have experience extracting cannabis? Let us know your thoughts in the comments!

If you’re a registered medical cannabis patient, the limits are:

Three ounces of usable cannabis flower, forty-eight ounces of cannabis-infused edibles in solid form, two hundred sixteen ounces of cannabis drinkables, and twenty-one grams of cannabis concentrates, per the Washington State Department of Health.
