When you hear the word syringe, what comes to mind? For many people, the first thing that comes to mind is a shot. However, there are other types of syringes as well.
Distillates are cannabis extracts refined to separate the cannabinoids and terpenes from the plant material. The result is a pure, high-quality product that can be consumed in many ways. One popular way to consume distillates is with a distillate syringe.
This blog post will take a closer look at what a distillate syringe is and how it is used.
What is a distillate syringe?
A distillate syringe is a syringe that contains a concentrated form of cannabis oil. This oil has a high THC content and is rich in other cannabinoids and terpenes. The distillate syringe effectively consumes cannabis, allowing you to dose the amount of concentrate you need accurately.
Additionally, the distillate syringe can be quickly cooked in high-fat food or absorbed under the tongue. Some people prefer distillate syringes because they offer a more potent form of cannabis than other concentrates products.
Distillate Syringes are perfect for measuring, storing, and transferring small amounts of distillates and oils.
The different types of distillate syringes
Distillate syringes are typically sold in sizes 1ml, 3ml, and 5ml and dosed via the plunger. The distillate syringe is made of borosilicate glass. Both plastic and metal plungers are available.
The most common distillate syringes are Luer lock syringes and Luer slip syringes. The glass syringe with Luer lock has a locking mechanism that secures the blunt tip needle to the barrel. A Luer slip system reduces the dead space of the syringe hub.
As distillate is thick and dense, the stainless steel plunger will make it easy to push, especially when there is no silicone lubricant inside. Of course, the cost f a metal plunger rod costs much more than a plastic one.
In addition, there is a plastic air release plunger rod with a distillate syringe. It makes the filling process easy as there’s no air pressure.
The benefits of using distillate syringes?
Distillate syringes are becoming increasingly popular as a means of consuming cannabis distillates. Distillates are cannabis concentrate purified to remove all impurities, resulting in a highly potent product.

Overall, distillate syringes offer several advantages over other methods of consuming cannabis distillates and are likely to continue gaining in popularity in the future.
