CBD Crumble Flavors
Plain Jane offers CBD crumble in a variety of flavors. This is what is called a "broad spectrum" formulation where natural terpene profiles are added to CBD isolate to achieve a product that is full spectrum minus the THC.
How to Use CBD Crumble
To use CBD crumble you will need a device for smoking concentrates. Those include wax pens, dab pens, honey sticks, concentrate vaporizers, or dab bongs. The term dab comes from the fact that you only want to smoke a very small amount of concentrate at a time. Dab bongs can be heated with a propane culinary torch or by using an electronic coil connected to a temperature controller. After the bowl of the dab bong is heated, you drop in a small amount of shatter (about ¼ pea-size, very tiny). Next, you cover the bowl with a carb cap and inhale.
Types of CBD Concentrates
All CBD starts as a crude full spectrum extract that most often utilizes ethanol extraction techniques. Using ethanol for extraction is ideal because it is very cost-effective and it is a safe food-grade solvent. It may surprise you to learn that even in CO2 CBD extract, ethanol is used in processing but the cost is greater due to the use of CO2 for the main extraction process. After that initial extraction, the crude CBD extract is refined to create more specific products with different formulations and consistencies.

Concluding Thoughts on CBD Crumble
CBD crumble and other CBD concentrate products are ideal for very experienced CBD users. They are not a good product for people who are new to CBD and do not have a good understanding of how to use dabs or how CBD works in the body. Concentrates are a very potent and very fast acting delivery method and if you are inexperienced with them you could encounter CBD side effects or adverse effects that you may not be prepared to deal with. For those who are well versed in dabbing and very experienced with CBD, concentrates are great products that offer flavor and potency.
