Dank Products: Concentrates, Topicals, Edibles & More


If you are new to cannabis, the wide range of cannabis products available can seem overwhelming. But don’t worry, we’ve got you.

Since legalization in Canada, Dank Cannabis dispensaries have made a name for themselves as the best cannabis dispensary in Canada. For more information, continue reading to the end of the article.

Depending on what effect you’re looking for, there’s sure to be a weed product for you. If you want to know what cannabis product is the best for you, here is a breakdown of every dank product type.



Cannabis seeds are the start of a bountiful cannabis garden. Choose from feminized, regular, or autoflowering varieties.

  • Feminized: 100% chance of growing female flowering plants
  • Regular: 50% chance of growing either a female or male plant
  • Autoflowering: Plants that automatically flower after a certain period of time without the need for a change in the light cycle.

Choose from a wide variety of strain options grown in nearly any environment, from a closet to a balcony to a greenhouse. Cannabis seeds are available from licensed retailers and online seed companies.


Dried Flower

Cannabis flower is the most popular product type. On dispensary shelves, you will see flower buds that have been harvested, dried, and cured for maximum freshness and potency. Smoke them in a cannabis pipe, bong, or roll a joint or blunt. Smoking or vaping cannabis flower buds delivers instant effects. In addition, you can make your own infused creations from scratch with cannabis flower. 

Onset time: 30 to 90 seconds

Duration of effects: 2 to 3 hours



Edibles are tasty and intoxicating treats infused with a dose of cannabinoids for potency and effects. Popular edible options include chocolate, baked goods and snacks, candies, soft chews, and any drink imaginable. Edibles can be made with cannabis flower or concentrate.

While edibles take a longer time to take effect than smoking flower buds, edibles may provide a longer-lasting experience. Edibles are also seen as a healthier delivery method than smoking or vaping cannabis. Some edibles, such as tinctures, can be taken sublingually (under the tongue) for faster absorption than ingesting edibles.

Onset time: 60 to 90 minutes

Duration of effects: 6 to 8 hours



Onset time: 30 seconds to 5 minutes

Duration of effects: 2 to 3 hours



As an alternative to smoking, vaping cannabis allows you to get more out of your flower or concentrates. Vaping heats the material below its combustion point to preserve more of its terpenes (aroma and flavour). Here are a few of the main vaping options:

  • Desktop vapes: Large and robust desktop vapes are meant for at-home use. Load up your flower or concentrate while the device gently vaporizes the material.
  • Portable vapes: Portable vapes offer the convenience of vaping on-the-go. A small heating chamber allows you to vaporize concentrates or dry herb in a travel-friendly device.
  • Disposable vapes: Disposable vapes are convenient options for those who do not have a portable vape on-hand. Disposable vapes are easy to use but may lack precise temperature control.
  • Vape cartridges: Vape cartridges with cannabis oil can be attached to a portable vape or vape battery.

Onset time: 30 to 90 seconds

Duration of effects: 2 to 3 hours



Cannabis extracts, also known as concentrates, are concentrated forms of cannabis resin. From raw cannabis plants, processors strip the plants’ most valuable compounds using solvent-based or solventless methods to create a highly potent extract, available in various consistencies, colours, and potencies. Cannabis extracts can be vaporized, smoked, ingested, or consumed sublingually.

  • Capsules and soft gels: Like traditional pills, cannabis capsules contain diluted cannabis oil or dry-flower, although oil is the most popular. Soft gels offer precise dosages for long-lasting relief.
  • Concentrates: Cannabis concentrated resin can take on many appealing forms in a range of colours and consistencies. From bright white to rich and golden yellow, these are some of the concentrate options you will find in dispensaries:
    • Shatter: Thin, translucent, and golden yellow. Shatter has a glass-like consistency that is super sticky.
    • Wax: Think of thick candle wax in a golden yellow colour. This extract is viscous and sticky.
    • Budder: Creamy and buttery, budder has a soft consistency and opaque colour.
    • Crumble: Like a crystallized cannabis rock, cannabis crumble has a brittle consistency that can turn into a powder. Expect a bright and opaque colour.
    • Live resin: Made from flash-frozen cannabis, live resin contains a higher-than-average amount of terpenes, responsible for its sugary consistency.
    • Rosin: Made using pressure and heat without any solvents, cannabis rosin is the resin that is literally squeezed out from pressed cannabis flower buds, kief, or hash.
    • Kief: The separated trichomes from the cannabis plant collected after dry sifting or ice water extraction.
    • Hash: Dried kief compressed in a slab or ball. Hash can have a darker exterior with a lighter interior caused by oxidation.
  • Oil: Cannabis oil, also known as a tincture, contains a concentrated cannabis oil with an alcohol base. Tinctures can be added to food or drinks or consumed sublingually (under the tongue). Sublingual consumption has a faster onset time than ingestion. 

Onset time: 30 to 90 seconds

Duration of effects: 2 to 3 hours



Cannabis topicals come in salves, lotions, creams, and balms. These can be applied directly to the skin for localized relief from inflammation or pain. Bath bombs are another fun option to coat the skin with cannabinoids. Rectal and vaginal suppositories can provide localized relief. In addition, transdermal patches are applied to the skin, but these can penetrate the blood-brain barrier to induce intoxicating effects. The rest of the topicals are non-intoxicating.

Onset time: 3 to 5 minutes

Duration of effects: 1 to 2 hours


Transdermal Patches

Onset time: 15 to 20 minutes

Duration of effects: 8 to 24 hours



Onset time: 15 to 60 minutes

Duration of effects: 5 to 6 hours
