Honey oil is the non-technical term for hash oil. Hash oil became known as honey oil because the concentrate has the amber color honey.
Hash & Honey Oil Concentrate
So what makes these oils so great? It goes back to the word concentrate. Really good raw marijuana that you smoke typically contains 20% THC. But take that same marijuana, run it through an extraction process, and the resultant concentrate (hash oil or honey oil) can have upwards of 80% THC content.
Seventeen years ago, dabbing came onto the scene and with dabbing came honey oil. If you’re not familiar with the process, dabbing involves vaporizing a marijuana concentrate and then inhaling the resultant fumes. And while that may not sound much different than the smoking that preceded it, dabbing was a giant leap forward in the consumption of cannabis products.
