Today, shatter products coming to the market go through a laborious process in order to remove damaging chemicals or residue. With better access to technology and processing equipment, legal shatter is produced with medical grade butane alongside a process called “dewaxing,” which helps remove harmful waxes and chlorophyll for the consumer. This process also helps to create a product that is smoother on the throat than cannabis smoke itself – a big reason many opt for dabbing as a means of getting a cleaner high.
How Do You Use Shatter?
Today, Shatter is created using strictly butane. This concentrate can be consumed by smoking, vaping, or dabbing. Check out our video below for a brief dabbing tutorial.
What is Shatter?
Shatter is a cannabis extract created via a solvent-based process. Concentrated cannabis is typically produced using ethane or butane, leading to a wide variety of extractions such as crumble, oil, butter, pull-and-snap, diamonds, and shatter! The terminology behind these extractions come from its visual appearance. Quality shatter that is stable and kept at the right temperature typically has a hard surface which literally shatters when tapped (appearance of cracked glass).
