What is shatter?
Shatter is a special type of BHO (hash oil extracted with butane) all BHOs use butane (a liquefied gas) as a solvent to extract cannabinoids and terpenes (to a lesser extent) from the plant material of cannabis.
It has a golden color and is a hard, glass-like consistency, which is usually shattered when dropped on the ground.
Extracts started with a need, they were thought to be stronger, more convenient, and easier to use discreetly.
While shatter is a relatively recent development when it comes to cannabis consumption, its roots can be traced back to the old practice of hashish production. In the late 1990s, the cannabis concentrate production was refined, and what is now known as shatter was first produced.
How to use it? Concentrates with the shatter consistency can be converted to budder by simply whipping the concentrate on a hot plate. Also, shatter shards can be mixed with flower inside joints before rolling.
It’s important to take care of it. When stored improperly, shatter can break down and lose its initial consistency, flavor or potency. To prevent this, shatter should always be stored in an airtight and light-proof container.
