THC Distillate – What Is It?

There are so many ways that you can enjoy marijuana products. They come in a variety of forms with a wide array of products within that variety for you to choose from. This also makes finding the best method for you more difficult.

One of the most common forms of THC currently is THC distillate. Once you understand what it is, and how it works you’ll never want to use a different method again.

What Is THC distillate?

THC distillate is one of the purest and most potent forms of cannabis oil that is available on the market today. What makes this form a popular option over most other cannabis oils, is its purity as it does not contain any additives and its potency.

You’ve likely heard about THC distillate, but still not really sure what it is. THC distillation is a highly purified form of THC. Everything from the plant was stripped leaving only the THC. Making it a highly potent concentrate.  It looks like a thick oil that can be anywhere from a clear to amber color.

The most significant difference between distillate and concentrate is that concentrate will keep some of its natural terpenes. This simply means that concentrate normally results in more flavor due to its higher content of terpenes.

When you look at THC distillate vs extract, distillate has a higher THC concentration. This makes it great for experienced users.  

When it comes to CBD distillate vs oil the main benefit of choosing distillate is the concentration of the CBD. The oil isn’t going to be as potent as a distillate, but choosing a full-spectrum oil would be a better option. CBD distillate uses include pain control, help to relax, and more. A THC distillate is most often used to get high whereas a CBD distillate is not.


Is thc distillate safe?

THC distillate is safe, but it’s essential that you understand just how potent it is. The high from cannabis distillate can be extreme because of its purity and potency. It’s similar to other types of cannabis concentrate when it comes to a quick onset high that typically lasts 1-3 hours.


What is thc distillate made of?

THC distillate is made by first extracting crude oil from dried cannabis plant matter. This is done through an extraction system that uses a solvent such as carbon dioxide, butane, or ethanol. Then it is put through another process that is known as winterization, filtration, and decarboxylation. The oil is then put through the final distillation stage, which will provide additional purification through a commercial distillation unit. This will provide a refined cannabis oil that’s been freed of any impurities or chlorophyll.

How to use thc distillate

There are plenty of ways that you can use THC distillates – vaporizing, adding it to your joint or bowl, it can be made into edible, and plenty of more options.

This is probably one of the most common ways to use THC distillate. You’ll find disposable pens with refillable vape cartridges, and a wide range of THC distillate-based vape options to choose from. When you use THC distillate this way you’ll find that it provides a quick onset of effects. This is likely one of the main reasons why it’s the best method and the go-to choice for many!


The distillate goes through a decarboxylation process that gives it the ability to be added directly to foods or collected in capsules since it will produce effects upon consumption. You can literally infuse THC distillate with just about anything. Times have greatly changed in this aspect. Where you used to be very limited with just brownies today you can infuse THC into teas, drinks, and foods and when consumed in edible form, the effects are stronger and will last much longer than from inhaling it.

Taking it slow to find the right dosage is important.
