Potency Meets Versatility for #SUMMERHIGH

Cannabis is currently in revolutionary form. This isn’t just limited to new products or new cultivation/extraction methods but also encompasses the millions of new consumers now finding themselves “cannabis curious”. This is breeding a whole new world for a wide range of cannabis products and their consumption behaviors.
From business people to artists/creatives and from top performers to average Joe’s & Jane’s, many people are finding new ways to incorporate cannabis into their lifestyles for great reason and great fun.
Traditional enthusiasts love their flower and wax for its closeness to a whole plant experience, incorporating tastes and effects true to the strain’s genetics they are derived from. However, a new breed of canna-friendly connoisseurs has emerged and is looking for the best of all worlds. Taste, efficiency, potency, versatility, and don’t forget the “fun factor” all these, things on their radar when they search “dispensaries near me” and review the products available. The average cannabis sativa and cannabis edible are taking a back seat as education on more nuanced products advance.

Re-enter, Cannabis Distillate!

At High Grade Headquarters, we extract distillate only from our in-house grown flower as part of our soil-to-oil process. All High Grade cannabis is grown with intention and packaged under the same roof.  This highly refined oil is designated in single gram applicators (glass syringes) for precision dosing.
Premium distillate makes for an incredibly easy and cost effective way to add some “oomph” to a dab, infuse foods and drinks at home, or take joint/blunts to another level.
Summer never met a better canna-companion.

 

As with most extracts, good in = good out. That said, these babies pack a punch. Each gram contains upwards or 80-90+% THC, with other cannabinoids represented in small amounts (CBN, CBG, CBD, etc.)  This can mean up to 800-900+ MG of activated THC, ready for action. Some units are even split with a 1:1 CBD to THC for more relaxed effects.

Infused Inhalables

Vaporizing and smoking are still the preferred methods of consumption for connoisseurs. Now, the sky is the limit with inhalable distillate infusion.

Use distillate to infuse into any joint, blunt, or bowl by adding directly to flower. You can also dress the outside of joints with this potent oil (try rolling or dusting in kief after application).  Elevate your rolling skills and use it as a inhalable adhesive like our friend Drippy Rollz.  Check out his insta @drippy_rollz to see some incredible smokable art.

Don’t forget about the dabs! Try using distillate applicators to add potency to shatter, sugar wax, budder, or crumble. This will help your favorites go further by adding cannabinoids while not altering or compromising on flavor.

Pro Tip*: Run Distillate Applicator under warm water to easily squeeze out your dose
