What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

As its name suggests, cannabis concentrates are a potent concentrated product that is rich in only the THC/CBD cannabinoids and terpenes of the plant. They are made by separating the trichome rich bits of the plant from the actual plant.

What Are Cannabinoids and Terpenes?

Cannabinoids are the chemical substances found in the cannabis plant, like THC or CBD, that bind with the cannabinoid receptors in our body and result in the different effects caused by consuming cannabis.

Terpenes are the compounds secreted by cannabis plants that are responsible for giving it its unique scent and taste. They can come in a range or combination of scents like earthy, woodsy, herbal, spicy, gasy, sour and/or sweet. They’re also responsible for many other functions like therapeutic or mood-altering effects.

You can find marijuana concentrates in Kitchener that come in all kinds of shapes and forms and with different methods of consumption.

What Are the Different Types of Cannabis Concentrates in Kitchener?

You can choose from a wide range of weed concentrates in Kitchener, and the list is growing, depending on your preferred method of consumption and THC levels. 

They come in a multitude of forms and textures depending on what process is used to separate the desired elements of the plant, like cannabinoids and terpenes, from the plant.

Cannabis extracts are a type of cannabis concentrate that are made using chemical solvents, like butane, to extract the desired cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant. Some examples of extracts include cannabis wax extracts, the fluid in vaporizer cartridges, or shatter.

Wax and shatter can be consumed by mixing them into a joint or pre roll with your dried flower, in an extract vaporizer, in your bong with dried flower or they can also be dabbed

Other concentrates are produced without chemical solvents and instead through a physical or mechanical method like grinding weed to collect kief or using a hydraulic press to make rosin. Kief can be sprinkled into your dried flower mix for your joint, bong or bowl to enhance the effects.

Concentrates that are derived without the use of solvents, retain the dignity of the cannabis plant and it’s entire natural profile like its flavonoids, proteins, cannabinoids, etc.; they’re known as full spectrum concentrates.

Hash is another popular cannabis concentrate that is made using several different methods that compress trichomes together with heat or pressure until we have a brick-like texture. Hash can be mixed with dried flower for a joint or bong and can also be dabbed or added to a hash-friendly vape.

Note: Dabbing shatter or other concentrates involves special accessories and are not recommended for novice consumers. If you would like to try dabbing, start low and go slow as concentrates carry potent doses and the risk of overconsumption. Consult a professional or your talented budtenders at Highland Cannabis to learn more.

What You Need to Know about Cannabis Delivery in Kitchener

If you’re looking for answers to your questions about weed delivery in Kitchener, you’ve come to the right place.

It’s been 3 years since legalization and out of all the varieties of cannabis products, experiences and services that we have observed, cannabis delivery is one we have all looked forward to.

How Does Cannabis Delivery Work?

Cannabis retailers in Ontario were given the thumbs up on providing curbside pick-up and delivery services back in April 2020 by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario (AGCO).

The process of placing an order for delivery or curbside pick up with an authorized cannabis retailer or from the Ontario Cannabis Store (OCS) is more or less the same across the province; visit their website, browse their menu, add items to the cart, check out, fill in your personal and payment details and click on place order.

Some authorized cannabis retailers, including the OCS, may even offer the option for same-day delivery for a small fee.

Before you can collect your order, whether curbside pickup or a delivery outside your residence, it is mandatory by law for you to present a valid government photo id and the credit/debit card that was used to pay for the order to the deliverer(provided you prepaid for curbside pickup).

Which Cannabis Products Can Be Ordered for Delivery?


You can order anything from an authorized cannabis retailer’s online menu like cannabis edibles, cannabis concentrates, cannabis extracts, pre-rolls, dried flower, cannabis beverages, vaporizers etc., within the legal limit of 30 grams (or the equivalent of extract, edible or topical) per transaction, which is also the legal public possession limit.

All the online legal dispensary menus, whether on Dutchie or similar e-commerce platforms, are programmed to prevent you from adding more than the legal limit of 30 grams to your cart.

Let’s look at how you can find a legal cannabis deliverer in Kitchener.

Choosing a Legal Weed Deliverer in Kitchener

With so many authorized cannabis retailers sprouting up in Kitchener and across Ontario, you may find it challenging to find a legal weed deliverer close to you.

To add to the challenge, each legal cannabis dispensary carries a different range of legal cannabis products so we suggest checking out the dispensary’s online menu before paying them a visit.

A Guide to Cannabis Chocolates in Kitchener

Looking to try some cannabis-infused chocolates? Here’s how you can find suitable weed chocolates in Kitchener.

Whether you’re a novice or seasoned consumer, there are a variety of cannabis products, and their consumption methods, in Kitchener to choose from.

While inhalation through combustion or vaporization is the leading method of consuming cannabis, ingesting cannabis in food or drink form is the next best alternative.

So what are cannabis-infused edibles? According to the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse and Addiction (CCSA), edibles are products that contain cannabinoids, chemical compounds found in cannabis, which you can eat or drink.

Cannabis-Infused Chocolates: What Are They and What Are The Different Types?

Cannabis-infused chocolates or weed chocolates, are made with cannabis extracts or concentrates that include active ingredients like tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and/or cannabidiol (CBD).

There are numerous cannabis-infused chocolates available in Ontario’s legal market however, Ontario’s regulations permit no more than 10 milligrams (mg) of THC in each edible package and there is no legal limit on the amount of CBD in each edible package.

Let’s look at the different types of weed chocolates that are available in Kitchener:

  1. THC chocolates: chocolates made with cannabis extracts or concentrates with THC as the active ingredient. THC is the main psychoactive cannabinoid that is responsible for the intoxicating “high” effect. 

  2. CBD chocolates: chocolates made with cannabis extracts or concentrates with CBD as the active ingredient, which is another common cannabinoid. Unlike THC, CBD does not produce an intoxicating effect but can reduce the effects of THC.

  3. THC + CBD chocolates: there is also a range of weed chocolates that are infused with both THC and CBD at varying ratios like 1:1, 2:1, 1:2, etc., THC to CBD ratio.

How to Choose a Cannabis Chocolate

The effects of consuming cannabis can be different than when you inhale it. The effects of cannabis can be felt almost instantly when inhaled but, when ingested, it can take anywhere between 30 minutes to 4 hours to fully kick in. 

Also, when we ingest cannabis, our body turns it into a stronger form called 11-hydroxy-THC.

There are many factors that influence the amount of time it takes for a person to feel the intensity and full effects of the cannabis edible like body weight, metabolic rate, etc.

Here are some factors that could help you choose suitable cannabis-infused chocolate:

1. Type of Cannabinoid:

Are you looking for a more psychoactive (THC) or non-psychoactive (CBD) experience? You can choose between only THC or only CBD chocolates. If you’re a first-time user, you could consider THC + CBD chocolates.

2. Amount:

Cannabis-infused chocolates come in different shapes and sizes, ranging from 1 chocolate square to 5 or more squares with 10 mg of THC distributed evenly amongst the squares. Start with a piece of 2.5 mg or less and wait for at least 2 hours to feel the full effects and to avoid overconsumption.

3. Potency:

Legal market cannabis-infused chocolates have an accurate amount of THC or CBD and allow you to get familiar with the potency of the THC and CBD chocolates. So long as you start low and go slow, with some trial and error you can discover how you react to each cannabinoid in different amounts.

4. Time:

Start with the smallest amount and wait at least 2 hours to feel the full effects and to decide if you can consume more. Depending on how cannabis affects you and the amount you consume, the effects can last as long as 6 or even 12 hours.

The Most Popular Cannabis Chocolate Brands in Kitchener

Here are some of the most popular cannabis-infused chocolate brands in Kitchener, Ontario:

Top Sativa Strains in Kitchener

Have you ever walked into a dispensary and the budtender asked whether you want a daytime or evening strain? Sativa strains are unique because they stimulate both mind and body. These characteristics make it favourable for enhancing creativity or having great conversations with other people. Here’s some good news, you’ll get the best Sativa in Kitchener under one roof at Highland Cannabis.

What Is The Difference Between Sativa and Indica? 

Indica strains such as Wedding Cake contain a different set of cannabinoids that put the mind in a tranquil state. This cannabis variety makes you just want to stay at home and chill because couch lock is synonymous with Indica products. Some people smoke it since the high levels of THC make it effective in soothing pain.

What Are The Benefits of Sativa?

1. Versatile: Day and Night Strain

Smoking a Sativa pre-roll in the morning helps in boosting mental alertness thanks to unique cannabinoids that stimulate the mind. This is great for people who wake up at 4 AM to hit the gym because it also prepares you for warm-up routines.

 In the evening, you’ll feel rejuvenated after vaping a few hits of a Strawberry Ice Sativa cart because its cannabinoids and terpenes work on the body like a cold shower. Sativa is the best strains to smoke for movie nights because it helps the mind stay alert. 

2. Ideal for Sports

Listening to music is one of the ways people use to prepare for morning runs or gym sessions. It stimulates the brain to produce adrenaline which puts you in the zone for intense physical activities. You can also gain the same mental energy by smoking Sativa strains. 

3. Compatible With Creativity

Do you enjoy smoking cannabis that gets you high and creative? At Highland Cannabis, we recommend Sativas that provide this experience from our catalogue of pre-rolls and vapes.

4. Ideal for Creative Sessions

Did you know that you can enhance your mental performance by drinking coffee after smoking a pre-roll. Steve Kotler, author of The Rise Of Superman explains how the brain peaks in performance after entering a state of flow that’s triggered using a combination of coffee and cannabis.

5. Best Cannabis Variety for Beginners

Perhaps you’re wondering which Sativa in Kitchener is ideal for people who’ve just started smoking cannabis. Highland Cannabis has a variety of sativa flowers or buds that have friendly THC levels, for instance, Blue Dream is a tasty strain containing 16% THC.  This moderate amount enables you to feel euphoric and social for a few hours.

 Indica strains, on the other hand, tend to pack more CBD and that’s why seasoned daily smokers prefer it to Sativa. However, smoking or vaping an indica is not ideal for beginners because they can experience anxiety attacks due to the high amount of THC.

Highland’s List Of Best Sativa Strains In Kitchener

This Sativa strain is for seasoned smokers since it packs a high THC concentration that ranges between 18-24%. Animal Face Sativa is a perfect daytime strain because the high concentration allows you to smoke one joint and feel energized throughout the day. Plus, the combination of humulene and limonene terpenes acts as a powerful anti-inflammatory for sore muscles and tissues in the body.

2. Tangerine Dream

Gummies in Kitchener: Everything You Need to Know

Weed gummies make the best choice for infused snacks when you want to enjoy edibles that take less time to kick in compared to medicated brownies or cookies. CBD gummies are also highly potent which makes them effective for soothing pain or managing anxiety. In this article, our dedicated cannabis team will answer the most commonly asked questions we get about buying gummies in Kitchener.

CBD Gummies vs. THC Gummies: What’s the Difference? 

All edibles and gummies have CBD and THC, but some have more than others to evoke different effects.

Cannabidiol, commonly referred to as CBD, is the most potent medical compound found in cannabis plants. Medical research has shown that it has calming properties and is effective in treating anxiety, inflammation, and managing symptoms of chronic illnesses. You’ll feel its presence both mentally and physically after consuming the recommended dose.

TetraHydraCannabinol or THC is a compound that gets you high and upbeat, whether it’s eating THC weed gummies or smoking an Indica or Sativa pre-roll. It also makes you enjoy food and this is why doctors may recommend THC gummies to patients with loss of appetite. 

Which Gummies Do You Recommend?

At Highland Cannabis, we prefer listening to our customers to know whether they want recreational or medicinal cannabis gummies. For instance, a gym enthusiast will benefit more from CBD rather than THC due to lifestyle needs. 

 A pack of Wana Pomegranate 5.1 is a good example of full-spectrum CBD gummies because, in addition to cannabidiol, it contains other cannabinoids found in cannabis plants. You’ll experience instant relaxation after chewing a couple of gummies since it contains at least 50 mg of CBD. It’s also ideal if you want to get a little high while treating inflamed muscles or sore joints since it contains 10 mg of Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC).

 On the other hand, you can purchase CBD gummies in Kitchener Waterloo that contain little to no THC to avoid getting high. You’ll get 5 mg of CBD combined with 1.25 mg of THC in each gummy from Ace Valley Grapefruit 4.1. Each gummy provides mind relaxation which is needed for anxiety management as well as promoting sleep for people struggling with insomnia. The THC contained in these gummies is insufficient to get you high but it boosts the CBD’s medical properties while working in the body.

Do CBD Gummies Have Side Effects?

Just like any medication, you would purchase from the pharmacy, excessive consumption is dangerous to your health. Consuming CBD gummies excessively can cause drowsiness since the mind-relaxing properties can become sedative and this poses a huge risk when driving on the road or operating industrial machinery. 

It’s crucial to know that excessive consumption of CBD gummies can cause dry eyes as well as cottonmouth. Dry eyes pose a risk while driving because they increase light sensitivity, which is especially dangerous at night. 

THC Gummies Recommendations

Some people enjoy watching movies while baked. Our recommended movie snack is a pack of SOURZ Blue Raspberry because it’s made using a top-shelf Indica strain that produces a long-lasting high. Indica strains also calm down the mind to the point of tranquility and this is exactly what you want when sitting down to watch a movie. 

If you’re enjoying an afternoon picnic in an area where smoking isn’t allowed, you can circumvent the situation using THC gummies. They usually take 5-10 minutes to activate, which is almost a similar experience to smoking a joint or vaping a THC cart.

How do you Recover from Edibles?

It takes self-control to avoid a nasty experience with edibles. Consuming an entire pack of THC gummies can cause nausea, sweating, and an unpleasant high that can cause anxiety attacks.  Here are a few steps you can use to recover from eating excess weed candies.

1. Find a Quiet Room To Rest In

Excess levels of THC in the body can trigger anxiety attacks or paranoia. Even people who’ve had previous experiences with weed gummies and smoke cannabis frequently can still find themselves in the same situation due to consuming more than the recommended dose. 

The first step to managing this situation is finding a quiet room where you can lay down for a while to slow the racing thoughts. Make sure you have a comfortable bed and pillow since you might decide to sleep it off.

2. Stay Hydrated

THC dries up the body and it’s the main reason why people experience cottonmouth after smoking a joint or vaping. Dehydration takes place faster when you’ve eaten edibles due to the amount of THC circulating within your body. That’s why most people have dry eyes after eating cannabis edibles.

 Staying hydrated enables you to avoid headaches and light sensitivity that can make the unpleasant high even worse. Get a supply of fresh water and sip it frequently to help you stay alert.

3. Get A CBD Vape

CBD works by calming the mind and interacts with the body differently compared to THC. You’ll feel much better after vaping an ACE Valley CBD 510 cart because it reverses the THC effects and neutralizes the high within 10 minutes.  

It’s Easy Getting a Pack of Legal Gummies In Kitchener!

A pack of gummies is great when you’re at home and you need a Sativa boost to help you complete the tasks on your To-Do list. If you need help getting some sleep, all you have to do is visit our store and get some CBD gummies, cannabis chocolates, cannabis concentrates and other cannabis-infused products to get the job done. You can even get them delivered!
