Sauce is a marijuana extract that is of a stick and liquidy consistency. This extract contains high levels of terpenes and also possesses the most flavor. A closed-loop system is usually used to make sauce and this process lets the solution settle in a variety of different pressures and temperatures.

Natural separation of the most important cannabinoids occurs under these conditions. Sauce can come in forms such as badder, shatter, crumble, oil, and sugar. The term sauce is well used to describe the appearance of the extract being similar to a juice or marmalade. Some consistencies are like big diamonds floating around in a golden type of syrup, while others are fairly gritty, resembling unfiltered honey.

Sauce is different from other concentrates in that it contains isolated cannabinoids and high terpene content. It can be thought of as shatter that has been deconstructed, with terpenes and cannabinoids having separated. Terpenes and cannabinoids may not be in an even consistency throughout the sauce, so taking one dab may be a completely different experience from the next dab. Many extracts use solvents such as butane, propane, and ethanol to extract the most desired cannabinoids and terpenes.

Producing sauce follows a similar method, but there are a couple of differences. The main goal when producing sauce is to let the most important cannabinoids crystallize and isolate themselves from the terpene part of the extract. Live resin sauce refers to sauce that is produced from fresh and frozen cannabis material that hasn’t been through the drying or curing process. Live rosin sauce refers to also using fresh and frozen cannabis, but it starts with sieving the cannabis in liquid nitrogen to create dry sift, and then pressing that sift at fairly low temperatures.

Use of Term

I enjoy dabbing sauce because it always is able to give me a potent high.
