Definition - What does Concentrate Slurry mean?
Concentrate slurry is the cannabis pre-purged, concentrate-rich residue that is created during an extraction process. It can be either solid, liquefied, runny, or airy. However, in most cases, a concentrated slurry has the consistency of a semi-liquid and may contain varying levels of plant material.
Most concentrate slurry products are further refined through various extraction processes to create highly potent concentrates such as butane honey oil, honeycomb, shatter, hash, wax, budder, rosin, bubble hash, full melt, oil, and a variety of other concentrated products that are widely used in dabbing, vaping, and cannabis edibles.
Hydrolife explains Concentrate Slurry
Cannabis concentrate slurry usually contains varying levels of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), cannabidiol (CBD), terpenes, and essential oils. For example, when manufacturing hash, the concentrated slurry is the resin-rich residue that is squeezed from the bagged plant material.
During CO2 extraction or butane hash oil (BHO) extraction, the concentrated slurry is the highly potent residue that is extracted from the plant’s material. The term ‘concentrate slurry’ also frequently refers to the cold extraction process that involves using either oil or alcohol to pull the THC and CBD from the cannabis plant material. The remaining concentrate slurry gathered from the cold extraction process is often used in edibles or tinctures.
