What is Shatter Weed?
If you’re just beginning to dabble in the world of cannabis concentrates, you’ve probably been hearing some strange nomenclature surrounding the products available to you. One of those terms is “shatter.” Cannabis shatter is a form of highly potent and concentrated extract that has a glass-like appearance and is highly sought-after for its purity. There’s a chance you’ve heard it being referred to as “pull and snap,” or even just another form of butane hash oil, but the concentrate’s unique form appropriately dubs it “shatter.”
Shatter weed is one of the newest forms of cannabis concentrates on the market, as we’ve only begun to see products like this within the past few decades. It was actually the mid-1990’s when the man appropriately named “Budderking,” began experimenting with cannabis concentrates, eventually creating both budder and marijuana shatter. He pitched his ideas to a Canadian smoke shop in the early 2000s, and the rest was history. Since its introduction to the cannabis world, this BHO subtype has completely exploded in popularity.
Today, marijuana shatter is among the most sought-after concentrates for dabbing. Because of its tricky structure, most avoid using shatter for bowls or joints, though vaporizing and dabbing the shards of cannabis allows for all properties to be fully experienced and enjoyed. Dabbing this honey-colored, fragile concentrate tends to produce a euphoric cerebral high, with many consumers are able to still be productive after smoking. Creativity is often boosted while anxieties subside; however, it’s important to note that marijuana shatter is a personal experience and will affect everyone differently. The same can be said for different cannabis strains used during production.
