Understanding HTFSE: Full-Spectrum Concentrate

by Staff & Contributors

Most of the cannabis concentrate manufacturers tend to use solvents like butane, carbon dioxide, hexane, and many others to get the bioactive compounds of flower buds. Remember that full-spectrum products are categorized as high-cannabinoid full-spectrum extracts and HTFSE. 

Full-spectrum extracts tend to have a variety of compounds like the trichomes. 

HTFSE Canada has about 13 to 25% terpenes as well as 50% THCA. HTFSE also goes through an extraction process that usually involves a light hydrocarbon mix of propane and butane. This article explains what you need to know about HTFSE. 


Benefits of HTFSE 

If you are one of cannabis users, then you may already know about the unique odors that come from cannabis flower buds. Aside from the fragrant aromas, terpenes are believed to offer some medicinal properties. It’s worth noting that terpenes only make up a small percentage of the compounds found in a cannabis plant. Regardless of this, they tend to increase the impact of therapeutic cannabinoids. 

In most cases, terpenes have usually been used for medicinal activities without even understanding their exact mechanism of action. Some researches indicate that the terpenes essential oils have given important effects in animal and cell systems. This is because these compounds have anti-tumorigenic and anti-inflammatory properties. 

As a result, terpenes can improve the flavor of the extract and also therapeutic effects. These effects have been studied extensively, especially for terpenes that are not mixed with cannabinoids.

Keep in mind that HTFSE is quite different from THC distillate and terpenes that are mixed together. This aims at reintroducing terpenes into the cannabinoid that can leave some valuable compounds, though it can only get a single group of terpenes called monoterpenes. So HTFSE just captures a wide range of the cannabis terpenes like monoterpenes, diterpenes, sesquiterpenes, and many other compounds. 


How you can consume HTFSE

You can consume HTFSE by dabbing, smoking, or even vaporizing the material. Dabbing needs  a dab rig, butane torch, and nail. When it comes to nails, these can be made up of heat-resistant materials like ceramic, quartz, and titanium. Dabbers use a variety of dabbing methods that need to heat the dab of the concentrate that is on the nail. Therefore, users can inhale the vapor that is in the rig. 

However, if there is no dab rig, then you can simply smoke HTFSE extracts. In this case, just add a small amount of the extract on top of joints, bowls, or blunts. Even better, you can decide to use an earth stone for smoking the HTFSE in a bowl. Remember that these techniques of heating your HTFSE can sometimes ruin the required flavor and aroma because of the high temperature utilized. The better effective way to use HTFSE is to use portable vaporizers. Vaporization can prevent combustion and tends to heat HTFSE at lower temperatures to give a smoother taste.

If you intend to try out HTFSE, it’s a good idea to ask for the lab results to make sure that the extract has the right cannabis chemical profile. You also need to purchase this extract from reliable and licensed suppliers.
