With the boost that the cannabis market has gotten, technology in the industry has also evolved vastly. Perhaps, you still think that marijuana can only be consumed by smoking a joint, but there is a variety of ways you can do it. One of the ways you can get THC is by buying shatter, which is a cannabis concentrate that looks like glass. But how is it made? Is it more potent than wax or any other cannabis concentrate? Where can you buy it online?
What is Shatter?
Shatter is a type of cannabis concentrate which comes in a hard, glass-like constancy, instead of wax. The name is because shatter can break or shatter when it comes apart. This concentrate looks like glass because the molecules of the extracts are less agitated during the production phase. Shatter’s potency can range depending on the initial composition of the beginner plants chemicals and how it was extracted. The concentrate is most commonly dabbed.
Shatter is typically made with butane or hydrocarbon solvents. To make the extract, cannabis is constricted into a tube that has butane and/or hydrocarbons and they are condensed through the plant material. This process strips away the THC and CBD compounds. After that, a concentrated oil is gathered, and it can be further refined to get rid of any residual solvents.
Shatter vs. Wax
Waxes are somewhat similar to shatter, but instead of being glass-like they are softer and more flexible. While shatter maintains the molecules undisturbed during extraction, the molecules are agitated in wax. The difference between the two is purely cosmetic since the amount of THC depends on the plant that was used rather than what the concentrate looks like. However, wax can be a little easier to manage when using scoops for dabbing. Shatter can crack apart into different sizes, but wax can easily be separated to get the correct dosage.
