Published on July 11, 2018 · Last updated July 28, 2020

Flower and edibles are great, but sometimes you need something with a little bit more punch to it. That’s where concentrates come into play. We took to our Leafly Instagram page and asked Leafly users for their go-to brands in the concentrates game. After receiving hundreds of answers, these were the brands that came up repeatedly.

Viola Extracts (@violalabs)

Available in: Colorado, Oregon, California, and Michigan (with plans to expand into Arizona and Nevada in 2019)

Viola Extracts is a company founded by NBA-veteran-turned-cannabis-entrepreneur Al Harrington. Named after his grandmother, the story of Viola is this: Al had been treating his multiple basketball-related injuries with CBD oils and topicals. He recommended CBD-based products to his grandma for her multiple I’ve-lived-a-very-long-time-related ailments instead of the ineffective medication she’d been prescribed by her doctors. Suddenly, after years of being unable, Viola could see the words on her Bible (there’s a whole documentary about it).

Viola produces a number of products including premium flower, vapes, extracts, live resin, and shatter.

Heylo Cannabis (@heylocannabis)

It's #TerpeneTuesday and we have some hot-off-the-press research to share! First, this is raw, high-terpene CO2 cannabis extract. This high-CBD Green Crack has a beautiful color and aroma because (1) it came from high-quality, pesticide-free flower, not trim. (2) it was carefully processed on an @EdenLabs Hi-Flo (3) we didn't rush the process, we let the plant do it's thing. Terpenes are light and volatile. They are easily destroyed. Preserving them takes patience and science. And why does it matter? A research study from the University of Genoa, Italy published this year revealed significant changes in brain activity from the inhalation of terpenes. Participants self-reported that they were more "energetic, relaxed and calm" from smelling various terpenes. These results suggest that the inhalation of essential oils (terpenes) of Cannabis could be useful in affecting "neuromodular activity in cases stress, depression and anxiety." — 😇 — #cannabis #terps #cbd #thc #terpenes #terpsauce #mmj #marijuana #energy #anxiety #stress #research #cannabinoids #TerpeneTalk #terpenefiend #terpenesdontlie #brain #neurology #science #STEM #depression #treatment #news #oil #710 #greencrack
