  2. While some concentrates tout concentration levels up to 99% pure, all concentrates contain trace amounts of other constituents due to the difficulty of extracting and isolating plant compounds.1
  3. Concentrate preference is highly subjective. Whole plant concentrates are recommended when medicinal effect is sought via the entourage effect.
  4. Hemp contains farless and far fewer cannabinoids and terpenes by dry weight than cannabis; however, hemp’sactive compounds can be readily concentrated.2
  5. It’s currently a multi-BILLION dollar industry in the United States alone, and worldwide legalization would push that number into the 13-digit range.
  6. The Black Market for cannabis still exists, even in states with recreational cannabis laws. As long as there are places where cannabis can’t be legally sold, people will find ways to get their bud.
  7. If you’re a registered medical cannabis user in your state, you’re not going to pass a federal background check to buy a firearm.
