Understanding Different Types of Cannabis Products

Understanding Different Types of Cannabis Products

There are a lot of different cannabis product types on the market because as we all know, luckily, there is more than one way to consume cannabis. The cannabis product type you may most enjoy may be a type that your best friend or loved one doesn’t like best. When you’re new to cannabis, it’s daunting at times to know where to start when it comes to choosing the best product type for you. The good news: We are here to help! Below, we walk you through the different types of cannabis products to choose from.

Flower Strains

One of the great things about cannabis is that every plant is different. Each cannabis flower will have its own unique organic chemistry depending on how it was grown and especially which strain it is. Every cannabis strain has its own taste, scent, and effects. While no two strains are alike, people generally discuss them by categorizing them as either an indica, sativa, or hybrid.

  • Sativa Strains – This type of cannabis is associated with creative and energetic effects, making it a common choice for the daytime.
  • Indica Strains – When people talk about calming cannabis, they’re often discussing indica strains. They’re normally considered to be best for nighttime consumption.
  • Hybrid Strains – Everything that isn’t a pure indica or pure sativa is considered a hybrid, and they often appeal to people who want a more balanced experience.

If the information above doesn’t help give you a better idea of which type of cannabis appeals to you most, we invite you to talk to one of our experienced budtenders about the type of experience you’re looking for. Here at Options Medical Center, we offer some of the best cannabis strains in Colorado. We’ll be happy to help you find the one for you.

Edibles 

Just like cannabis flower itself, edibles can have different effects depending on the cannabis strain used to make them. Cannabis edibles are a popular choice for many different reasons. Some people don’t like the idea of smoking anything or inhaling vapor for health reasons, so they prefer to eat their cannabis. Furthermore, cannabis edibles taste delicious and are fun to eat. They come in a variety of flavors and textures, which makes it easier to find something that appeals to each individual consumer and their preferences.

Here at Options Medical Center, we source the best cannabis edibles in Colorado by working with only the most trusted companies. When you look for edibles on our dispensary menu, you’ll see brands like the following:

  • Taste Budz – started in 2017 with a goal to create the perfect cannabis gummy
  • Keef Cola – producing leading cannabis soda in Boulder since 2010
  • Canyon Cultivation – delicious, award-winning cannabis edibles in a variety of flavors
  • Stillwater – designed for quick THC absorption and backed by clinical studies
  • Koala Bars – new and upcoming chocolate bar company
  • Coda Signature – a producer of beautiful gourmet cannabis chocolates
  • Wana – known for making some of the best cannabis gummies in the world

Concentrates

Some experts believe that cannabis concentrates will become even more popular than traditional cannabis flower within the next few years. The reason for this is that cannabis concentrates offer such an exceptionally high THC concentration that can’t be found even in the best cannabis flower. Cannabis concentrates come in many forms like wax, shatter, budder, live resin, and distillates. Since they come in so many different forms, they can be enjoyed in multiple ways, especially in vapes and by dabbing.

Like with everything else we sell, we only offer cannabis concentrates from the most respected cannabis brands in Colorado. Our concentrates are of the highest quality, which means they have high levels of THC, excellent taste, and superior purity. When we sell cannabis concentrates, we don’t want those products to include additives or potentially harmful chemicals. As such, when you buy cannabis concentrates from Options Medical Center, you can rest assured that you’re only receiving a pure extraction from fresh, natural cannabis flower. 

We competed in last year’s Rooster 710 Cup, and the results speak volumes about the quality of our concentrates. Nomad and Concentrate Supply Co. processed our flower to create premium products that delighted the judges. We were proud to receive both first and second place in the shatter category. Additionally, we received the second place prize in the wax category.

You can find cannabis concentrates from brands like the following when you look at our dispensary menu:

  • Green Dot – produced by industry leaders who are committed to purity
  • Concentrate Supply Co. – leading concentrate brand for both medical and recreational dispensaries
  • O.pen – cartridges, batteries, and accessories for an unrivaled vaping experience
  • Potions – our in-house cartridges with distillate processed from our own flower
  • Spectral Extracts – small batch live rosin for the connoisseur
  • The Flower Collective – bubble blunts and joints for people who want both flower and concentrates
  • AiroPro – a relatively new cannabis vape brand known for excellent vaping technology
  • Nomad Cannabis – starts with the best flower to end up with premium cannabis concentrates

Topicals 

Cannabis topicals are popular among people who want to localize their experience of cannabis. In other words, these products give you a way to focus the effects of cannabis on one specific part of your body as desired. If you don’t want to feel full-body effects or a head high to apply cannabis to your knee, back, or hands, cannabis topicals may be the product you’re looking for. 

Both of our cannabis dispensaries in Colorado offer options from some of the leading cannabis topical brands like Escape Artists. Escape Artists was founded by scientists with backgrounds in the food and pharmaceuticals industries. They have prior experience making products to relieve pain, stress, and muscle tensions. Their expertise should inspire the highest level of confidence in their products.

Get Cannabis You Can Trust at Options Medical

As a result, we offer quality that can’t be beaten at a price no one else can compete with. Still unsure of what to choose? The best option after reading to come into our dispensary and get help from our expert budtenders. We’re here to help you have the best cannabis experience.
