The Roller Circle on 22nd Aug 2023

Disclaimer: Smoke Responsibly Social is an objective community sourced responsible consumption based platform. By way of Smoke Responsibly Socials Daily Roller shares the experiences and advice of cannabis experts, professionals, and consumers. 

How: Just because we are well seasoned, or familiar, does not mean we are all knowing.

What are all the ways I can extract cannabinoids from the cannabis plant?

Like magic, you can use simple methods such as taking a curling iron's heat and your muscle power, or more sophisticated methods using flammable or nonflammable substances to pull the cannabinoids from the plant. Learn commercial methods of extracting cannabinoids from Oaksterdam University, earn a professional certificate.

 Keeping with the calendar of cannabis related holidays (#710) our July social featured a guided conversation on extracts and concentrates. A topic broad enough, and with the aid of our Special Guest for the month we were able to shatter the concepts into consumable proportions. Other discussion aides used include, NIH's National Institute of Drug Abuse Drugfacts: Cannabis (Marijuana) Concentrates

The news article titled "A Marijuana Producer is Under Scrutiny as Regulators Recalls 13k Vapes After Child Poisoning Incident" by Jelena Martinovic was used to help show what can happen today if we do not handle or understand the effects of cannabis concentrates and extractions properly. This story is about how mislabeling of products led to companies in Michigan losing licenses to operate, incurring fines, and even unintentionally harming a child.

These resources, our in person attendees, and Dank Hill allowed for a deeper dive into key areas concerning the consumption of concentrates and extracts. Our social took place outside upon the lawn of a private Chicago based business. Setting the mood proper we had DJ Nick C spinning a collection of tropical house vibes.

Daily Roller's aim is for each Smoke Responsibly Social to shine on its own, packed with cool tips and tricks to take home with you. These socials are like puzzle pieces within a bigger picture of giving understanding to social attendees of how our Freedom to Consume in Illinois fits in with the worldwide cannabis situation. While sharing our excitement and interest for cannabis we are gaining perspective of serious consequences elsewhere. It's like mixing fun and smarts into one awesome blend, Smoke Responsibly Social. Hopefully we can collectively (and individually) realize our privilege and that it's worth fighting to improve.

Welcome to your cannabis concentrate adventure! There are several different electric and analog devices used to heat then consume cannabis concentrates. You can eat or drink by adding cannabis extracts or concentrates to your favorite food like baked goods, or drink like smoothie. Puff by adding to plant in pre-roll, or blunt, or vape pen

You can even put drops on your body or take cannabis derived oils. And guess what? Some forms of consuming cannabis extracts and concentrates are so simple you don't have to light them up or do anything special(see RSO & FSO in social community resources below!).
