Shatter is a concentrated mix of cannabinoids and terpenes. Being a type of BHO, Butane is used to separate trichomes from the cannabis buds and trimmings and hereby concentrates the cannabinoids and terpenes found in the plant. Trichomes are small, glass-like crystals found on the cannabis plant.
Benefits of shatter
Shatter offers an incredibly fast method for cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream, offering near instantaneous effects. users are also able to take on a “less is more” approach in using their cannabis due to the increased potency of cannabis extracts.
Dabbing shatter means you no longer need to inhale large amounts of burning plant material to get the effects you want. That is an amazing thing. Rather than smoking entire joints and ventilate your lungs to harmful chemicals in the smoke, for getting their cannabinoids consumers can dab once or twice, inhaling only vapor – not smoke.
Because of its molecular structure shatter is more stable, so it will last longer before degrading compared to wax and other similar extracts. However, some users find the hard consistency difficult to break up and measure out into individual uses. For breaking off a dab from your shatter, you need to lightly heat up your dabber brfore using it.
