If you have ever worked your way into concentrates, then crumble may be a word that you have heard. Most of the time, concentrate explorers are going to start off with a vape type of concentrate before moving to the more veteran side of concentrate consumption, i.e. shatter and crumble.
Crumble is a light and airy almost honeycomb texture concentrate. At a whopping 90% THC content, this stuff packs an unnecessarily strong punch! One of the benefits of crumble that many users talk about is how little you have to use in order to achieve a state of relaxation.
With rather affordable prices that average in the $50’s, crumble can be a great addition to your THC toolbox.
How Crumble is Made
Crumble takes an interesting process compared to other types of concentrates. Rather than the sappier and easier to handle types of concentrates such as shatter and others, crumble is light and airy. This is how it earned its name.
Like most extracts, crumble is made through the use of carbon dioxide and/or other organic chemicals that pull live resin from the leaves of fresh frozen or dried marijuana. Once the resin is extracted, it’s time to dry out the resin as much as possible.
This process can take time and some folks who love their crumble will even apply vacuum pressure to force an airy honeycomb texture into the concentrate.
What Can Crumble Help With?
Crumble users can expect a myriad of effects depending on what strains the crumble is made from. If there isn’t any indication to what type of crumble you are using, be ready for the following effects:
- Mood stabilization
- Appetite Increase
- Decrease in Pain
- Decrease in Muscle Fatigue and Spasms
- Sedative or tranquilizing effects
- Decrease in stress and anxiety
These are a few of the effects you can expect from this type of concentrate. People who have higher levels of pain or nausea find this type of concentrate to help quickly and effectively.
How Much Crumble Do I Use?
Remember that yellow polka dot bikini? The same goes for crumble. You only want to use a teeny weeny little bit otherwise you can risk staying high for days. The amount of THC that is found in crumble is stronger than any strain of marijuana.
Smoking or vaping this type of concentrate works wonders but you also have to be careful. It’s best to use crumble later in the day and don’t drive after consuming it.
What’s the Best Way to Smoke Crumble
There are three solid ways to take crumble other than edibles:
Vape Rig – If you have a vape rig, then this is probably going to be the easiest experience for you. Remember, only use small amounts of crumble at a time until you understand how your body is going to react.
Dab Rig – if you prefer a slightly more traditional smoking experience then you’ll enjoy using crumble with any dab rig. Since dab rigs were originally made to work with concentrates, they are perfect for smoking crumble.
Joint – Believe it or not, yes, you can crumble into a joint and smoke it straight. You can also sprinkle some on top of bud to enhance the effects of whatever strain you smoke.
A Note on Pipes
It’s best not to use a pipe when smoking crumble. No matter how many layers of mesh you place in your pipe, you will be left with a mess, several burns, and perhaps even a scalded mouth.
Because crumble does become more of a sappy liquid, it is easy to accidentally inhale it. For your safety, do not smoke crumble in a pipe without the proper dab rigging.
Is It Worth It?
The short answer is definitely yes. At affordable prices that aren’t going to break the bank, crumble is a solid investment. With how little you use with each hit, a container of crumble can last several months depending on how often you use THC products.
Concentrates tend to be the way of the future in consuming THC and crumble is no different. From how it is made to the way that it is used, the process is a lot cheaper and the experience is much smoother than other concentrate experiences.
Not only are concentrates loved by connoisseurs but even Marijuana Doctors has this concentrate in their dictionary! It’s incredible what can be done with THC and the many concentrate forms.
If you haven’t tried crumble before then a good reason to try is really to see how it works for you. If you like it, great. If not, happy smoking and keep trying new things!
