Sugar leaves, frequently covered in cannabinoid and terpene-rich trichomes, are often used to make cannabis concentrates. The goal with a concentrate is to isolate and accumulate the plant's cannabinoids and terpenes for maximum potency. Sugar trim may not be as potent as cannabis flowers, but the relatively high amounts of trichomes found in sugar trim makes it a great source for isolating and concentrating the most desirable compounds of the cannabis plant, so much so that the end result is guaranteed to be more potent than dry flower.
Using sugar trim to make concentrates, exercise care when handling plant material. Each instance of contact can result in trichome loss or damage. Whenever possible, hold your plant and branches by the end of the stem, and be as careful as possible with your sugar leaf trimmings. Ideally, you'll want to trim your plants over a screen to collect trichomes that may break off.
