YouTuber HowToWeed provides a step-by-step guide on how to make THC vape oil from various concentrates and comparing which one is the best. Consider this your crash course to the different kinds of concentrates to upgrade your vape game.


Introduction to different concentrates

Live resin

This concentrate is produced in a similar fashion to BHO or butane honey oil except being made from fresh flowers, which are then flash frozen as opposed to bud that has been dried and cured. The cryogenic freezing of fresh and non-dried cannabis blossoms help attract a wide range of cannabinoids and terpenes.



Caviar is made in the same process as a high-terpene full-spectrum extract. What makes caviar different is that during the purging process, terpenes are actively captured through a sophisticated method of subzero terpene trapping. The terpenes are then reintroduced into the mixture by breaking down the crystals to the point where it looks like its namesake.


Terp Sauce

This solvent concentrate has a sticky, liquid consistency. Terp Sauce contains high levels of terpenes and is typically the most flavorful out of all extracts. The sauce is produced by utilizing a closed-loop system, allowing the resulting solution to settle under various pressures and temperatures.


Shatter is a solidified solvent-based extract. Its moniker came from its translucent appearance and tendency to break like glass.


This particular concentrate is unique in structure as it has a soft, solid consistency that is strikingly similar to a stick of butter. It’s one of many concentrate textures and appears in rosin and solvent-based extractions.

Sugar Wax

Sugar Wax has a full flavor and slightly grainy texture. It’s thicker and not as sticky compared to other concentrates. Many people prefer Sugar Wax for its rich and more complex flavor profile.
