There is no correct or incorrect method to consume cannabis, but as concentrates grow increasingly popular, more individuals are shifting from strict flower users to daily dabbers. Cannabis concentrates provide an entirely different experience than flower. As the name implies, concentrates are more potent than the flower from which they came.There are several methods for producing cannabis extractions, each with its own set of characteristics, tastes, consistency, THC concentration, and quality.
Understanding the maze of concentrates may be challenging, whether you’re an experienced dabber or a beginner. It may be difficult to know what you’re searching for with so many different brands and options to select from. Tropicanna offers a premium selection of brands that are consistently developing new and innovative extracts. Here are some of the most popular brands available at our dispensary in Santa Ana off Grant Ave.

In addition to producing high-quality extracts, they have also won the High Times Cannabis Cup and the Emerald Cup.

The ice water method is the primary extraction process utilized by Papa Select, gently pressing the buds and extracting the trichomes from the plant in a way that does not harm the flower’s integrity.

Papa Select also makes limited batches to protect the quality of the plant and retain as many cannabinoids and terpenes as possible.
