When it comes to cannabis extracts, there is a wide range of options available. From light and transparent to dark and opaque, the variety of concentrates can be overwhelming. Unfortunately, there is a common misconception that lighter extracts are of higher quality than darker ones. However, this is not necessarily true.
In fact, there are many reasons why darker concentrates may be preferable. For starters, black tar-like oil is likely made from alcohol instead of butane. If the flower is left to sit in alcohol for an extended period of time, it will absorb the green matter in the bud. To avoid this, it is best to use a flower pipe with lots of perches instead of a bong pipe with small perches. Additionally, when droplets age, they degrade just like flowers.
Cannabinoids are transformed and the color changes from light yellow or honey to a darker amber or oxide color. This indicates that cannabinoids are changing and terpenes are evaporating. In conclusion, there is no real correlation between the color of light and quality when it comes to cannabis extracts. Darker concentrates may be preferable for a variety of reasons, such as avoiding the absorption of green matter in the bud or indicating that cannabinoids are changing and terpenes are evaporating.
