Pure Cannabis Concentrate – New CBD blends!

As you guys probably know by now, we love our Pure Cannabis Concentrate! Extracted from 100% pure Raven Grass using >99% purity CO2, with specifically calibrated combinations of time and pressure, it’s the closest thing you’ll find to a true cannabis experience in the concentrate world. It’s a condensed, portable, and flavor-packed way to bring Raven Grass with you wherever you go!

Our usual go-to’s for using Pure Cannabis Concentrate are vape pens (we’ll get into specifics on those more below). They’re super convenient, discreet, easy to use, and affordable; plus they’re usually calibrated to have a nice low temperature setting to preserve those precious terpenes and keep the flavor alive! We also love adding the concentrate to our own edibles and topicals at home. If we’re just looking for a CBD supplement, we’ll add the concentrate as-is, straight from the jar. If we’re in the mood for a little psychoactive boost via the THC, we’ll decarboxylate the concentrate first to activate it, then blend it in to our recipe. We’ve included some easy “decarbing” how-to’s at the bottom of the post for you. Be sure to check the testing results on your concentrate before you dose any edibles, to make sure your THC serving size is appropriate!

Ok, now on to the really good stuff. Want to know what our favorite thing to do with Pure Cannabis Concentrates is?

Blend them!

We love our CBD, but we also love all of the unique character that each Raven Grass strain brings. At home, we always make sure we have a jar of high-CBD concentrate in stock, so we can blend it with whichever high-THC strain we’re feeling that day. Out for a hike? Bright and sunny Maui Wowie sounds great paired with a little therapeutic Cannatonic! Looking to chill after a day of yard work and spring cleaning? Euphoric indica Afghan No. 1 would be a dream with the high CBD levels of ACDC.

Soon, we had our friends and families blending their concentrates as well, coming up with their own custom concoctions that best suited their lifestyles. Friends with chronic conditions, who have found relief through daily use of ACDC, were now winding down in the evenings with a little Granddaddy Purple blended in to their vape pen bowls and adding some Jack Herer for a sunny day energy boost! We liked where this was going.

We wanted to take it a step further. We wanted to bring the blends to you!

So, without keeping you hanging any further, here they are! First generation Pure Cannabis Concentrate Blends are some of our favorite combinations, but we would love to hear what your dream combos are as well! Send us over any great ideas, or feel free to leave them in the comments below.

EXTRACT HEADER ACDC AFGHAN 02134Daydream is our not-quite-ready-for-bed, daytime zen blend. Super chill, euphoric landrace indica Afghan No. 1 blends with CBD powerhouse ACDC in this dreamy combo.

 

 

 

 

EXTRACT HEADER CANNAVOODOO 02135Moonlight is our nighttime-is-the-right-time, help you get the rest you need blend. The balanced CBD ratio of Cannatonic and uniquely mysterious indica Voodoo Kush will certainly ease your way to the pillow.  

 

 

 

EXTRACT HEADER CANNAMAUI 02136Sunshine is our sweepin-the-clouds-away, you make me happy when skies are grey blend. Bright, warm, and fun-loving Maui Wowie and balanced Cannatonic will surely keep you keepin’ on the sunny side of life. 

 

 

 

EXTRACT HEADER ACDC STRAWBERRY 02646Sweet Fire is our seductively sweet, spice-up-your-life blend. Classic sativa Strawberry brings a suspiciously delicious natural berry flavor to high-CBD favorite ACDC for an energizing daytime treat. 

 

 

 

Now, want to know more about those vape pens we mentioned? We’re loving the refillable wax/concentrate atomizers found by Vuber (solid and dependable), CloudV (the tiniest of the tiny, perfect for on the go), Source (so many attachments! a definite upgrade), and Magic Flight (the fanciest lady on the block! a truly beautiful option, but slightly less portable than the rest). 

We also promised you some decarb tips. To activate your Pure Cannabis Concentrate for use in edibles or capsules, you have two options.

To preserve more of the flavor of the concentrate, pre-heat your oven to 220F with a baking sheet on the center rack. Place your concentrate jar on the baking sheet, and let “cook” for 40 minutes, stirring thoroughly every 5 minutes to ensure even activation throughout.

Flavor not a priority? You can activate in a snap. Pre-heat your oven to 300F with a baking sheet on the center rack. Place your concentrate on the baking sheet and let “cook” for 10 minutes, stirring every couple of minutes to ensure activation throughout.

That’s it!

Enjoy your blends, Ravens!

    Big fan of all your high CBD oils! Wonderful medicine.

    But this part struck me “If we’re just looking for a CBD supplement, we’ll add the concentrate as-is, straight from the jar. If we’re in the mood for a little psychoactive boost via the THC, we’ll decarboxylate the concentrate first to activate it, then blend it in to our recipe.

    Does that mean CBD does not to be de-carbed?”

      Great question! We should specify that if you’re looking for a CBD-A supplement, you do not have to decarb. CBD-A is the pre-curser to CBD and does convert to CBD through decarboxylation, though at higher temperatures and longer times than the THC-A to THC conversion. The reason we say it’s unnecessary is that CBD-A is thought to be incredibly beneficial on its own for a lot of the same common uses that CBD is revered for, and some users would prefer to reap the CBD-A benefits without any psychoactive effects.

      That said, there are a slew of more specific promises that CBD offers. The Leaf Online has great profiles of both CBD-A and CBD where you can compare and contrast their effects.

      If you decide you are interested in decarbing your CBD concentrate, the ideal combination for maximum conversion is 245° F for 60-90 minutes.

      Thanks again for the question, and hope that information proves helpful!

    That makes perfect sense, and very helpful. I will checkout The Leaf Online. Thanks!

    For your CBD oils I have mainly used Magic Flights Maud-dib, and now Dr Dabber’s Boost. Not as convenient as a pen, but very rewarding.

    Thanks again for the reply and clarification!
