It’s becoming more and more difficult to recall the days of the wild west in the cannabis industry Could it be hard to recall just because it’s a half-decade ago or maybe it’s because I’ve reviewed hundreds of cannabis products over the last five years that have melted my brain out. Regardless of how difficult it may be to recall those early days. I do remember some of the pricing. One bit of pricing that always stood out to me was the first dab rig and the first batch of concentrates I ever purchased. I had just received some extra cash for my birthday, and I knew that I was going to spend it on my very own dab rig. While I was already quite familiar with dabbing, I didn’t own a rig of my own. This was also before most of the market had become saturated with more affordable dabbing options, such as straws. I was going to need a full setup; I would need a rig, a dome, something to scoop up concentrates with and of course, most importantly, a fresh batch of concentrates. Not that shatter has decreased in popularity too much over the last half-decade, but at the time it was simply all the rage. I knew I was going to need to get some shatter to christen my new rig. One thing I absolutely can’t forget was the price that I paid for all of it. The rig itself, which stands a little bit over 12 inches tall, was over a hundred and fifty dollars back in the day. By the time I’d added an extra nail and a dab tool, I was capping out over $200 with tax. If that sounds like quite the price gouge, just wait till I tell you how much the concentrates I purchased were at the time. Seeing the price skyrocket, I went for one of the more affordable shatters I could find on the shelf. While it was still an undeniably good shatter from a very well trusted company the price tag attached to it of $75 for a gram was just a little hard to swallow (you smoke it duh). Things have changed a lot in the last five years, to put it mildly. While you can still easily spend $200 on a rig, I imagine you could get a bit more bang for your buck nowadays. An even bigger change has been in the product availability and pricing on concentrates. I’d like to highlight one particular concentrate company and a phenomenal deal going on at Smoking Gun Apothecary. If you haven’t yet heard of West Edison, then let me tell you a little bit about this amazing extraction company. West Edison is produced right here in the metro area in Aurora. They pride themselves in blasting some of the purest and most flavorful concentrates around. West Edison also lays the claim that they have one of the most sophisticated labs producing concentrates in the entire state of Colorado. This level of sophistication not only allows West Edison to produce amazing flavorful concentrates but also blast in volumes that allow them to offer amazing deals to local dispensaries. If you’ve been looking for a deal on concentrates, then you need to check out the options at smoking gun apothecary. You can purchase an entire eight-gram supply of West Edison Concentrates at Smokin Gun Apothecary, located in Glendale, Colorado. Best of all, you can look forward to crafting your own mix and match eight-gram batch of West Edison concentrates and get an out-the-door-price of only $150. This mix and match offer includes all of West Edison’s wax, budder, and shatter. Simply put, this is one of the best deals I’ve ever heard of for concentrates of this caliber. Wax, budder, and shatter aren’t the only concentrate options available from West Edison. You can also pick up West Edison live sauce and one gram syringes of oil. To give you a better scope of West Edison’s products, I’ll go into a little more detail on what’s available.
If you want to take advantage of West Edison’s eight grams for $150 out the door, then you’ll need to hurry into Smokin Gun Apothecary, a recreational marijuana dispensary located in Glendale, Colorado.. West Edison concentrates are some of the highest caliber concentrates around, and this deal won’t last for long. Smokin Gun also offers a unique experience for first-timers visiting a dispensary. The museum feel puts a new perspective on what a dispensary can offer the public beyond simply selling cannabis.
West Edison Wax & Budder:
First, I’ll start with wax and budder. Wax and budder are considered by many to be one of the most rudimentary forms of blasted concentrates. This is simply because they don’t go through quite as rigorous a process as shattered does. While shatter is purged of gases, wax and budder have a certain fluffiness provided by residual oxygen that is one of their greatest boons. Not only does this airy consistency allow for perfect melting but it also makes the product more malleable and a lot easier to wrangle on the end of your dab tool. While this may not be an issue for seasoned professionals, I know from personal experience the first batch of shatter I got was a nightmare to get on the end of a dab tool. West Edison’s wax and budder are produced in their state-of-the-art blasting kitchen in order to give you a flavorful and pure end product.
West Edison Shatter:
With extremely potent concentration levels, West Edison shatter is truly a sight to behold. Crystal clear glistening yellow sheets of THC crystalized and processed into a concentrated form are what you can expect. As I mentioned earlier in this article, shatter was the absolute pinnacle of concentrate technology back in the day. While many times it may now be playing second fiddle to many live extractions, there’s still a lot of people out there that swear by it. What’s not to love? The potency and the aesthetics alone keep this form of concentrate a contender for many people’s favorite. I for one will never forget the first time I was given a batch of shatter to review. I stared at it for a long time thinking about how far the cannabis world had come from sheets of imported brick weed back in the day. West Edison shatter is still a top-notch product that is sure to deliver the potency desired by even the most seasoned dabbers.
West Edison Oil Syringes:
While oil syringes may still have some bad connotations in the industry just because of their appearance, oil syringes are extremely adaptable cannabis industry products. Depending on whether the THC inside them is already activated or not, they can be used in a bunch of different scenarios. One of the simplest ways to enjoy oil from a West Edison syringe is by simply dribbling drops onto your dab nail. Be careful though, since you’re dealing with an extremely hot dab rig and a syringe that’s usually plastic, you don’t want to end up with a lung full of said melted plastic. Perhaps a more mainstream use for oil syringes is refilling certain types of cannabis vape pens. While many reloadable cartridges won’t accept standard oils, if you have a vape pen that you know can utilize any oil, one-gram syringes from West Edison might be exactly what you’ve been looking for.
West Edison Live Sauce:
Last, but certainly not least, is West Edison’s live sauce. As the name would imply, this is a live concentrate. What “live” means is that the end product has been crafted using fresh frozen buds instead of pre-cured cannabis. According to West Edison, this process can save up to 80% of the flavor profile when crafting a concentrate. Live concentrates have really become the main player in the world of extracts in the last couple of years. West Edison has some absolutely beautiful offerings to bring to the table. Foregoing the drying process creates an end concentrate that is literally swimming in terpenes. Terpenes of the proteins responsible for the flavor in all plants and if you have a higher level of them in your concentrate, you’re going to get a much more flavorful and fulfilling smoke. The best concentrate companies like West Edison have found a perfect way in which to balance concentration levels along with terpenoid counts so you don’t have to sacrifice potency to increase flavor.
If you’ve been looking for a new source of concentrates in Colorado, then I would highly recommend checking out Smoking Gun Apothecary’s selection of West Edison products. If not for the price offer of eight grams for $150 out the door, it’s worth looking into West Edison for the quality of their products alone. With concentrate options like that from West Edison, we’ve truly entered the age of the dabber. While I definitely am not a daily dabber in any way shape or form, I won’t deny how pleasant it is to experience a low-temperature flavorful dab of live concentrates. If you’re not an experienced dabber, the current price point of West Edison concentrates has made it an ideal time to investigate. Prices on dab rigs, straws, and concentrates have never been lower. It almost seems like a joke to me how much I paid for my first batch of shatter compared to how affordable it is now. With offers like the one from West Edison, I literally could have gotten four times the amount for the same price that I paid five years ago. With an extremely diverse selection of West Edison products and the amazing mix and match eight-gram deal, there’s never been a better time to enter the world of cannabis concentrates.
