Extract Education 101

With so many different types of cannabis extracts in the market, many new consumers don’t quite understand the differences between them and oftentimes report being intimidated or confused by so many options. As one of California’s leading cannabis subscription and delivery services, we thought we’d give a bit of Extract Education 101 for some of the extracts you might run into out there. So, get your rigs ready and let’s blaze through this crash course, shall we?
