What is shatter weed?

Among concentrates and extracts such as budder, wax, bubble hash, and oil, shatter weed is the most potent. That’s because marijuana shatter goes through an additional filtration process, which filters out other naturally occurring fats and waxes, producing a high concentration of active ingredients (up to 80% THC in some cases). This extra filtration step optimizes purity, but it also gets rid of the terpenes that give each strain of marijuana its distinctive scent and taste.

Terpenes, however, also act as solvents. The presence of terpenes is what makes hash more gummy than hard. When it comes to shatter wax, though, a higher level of purity is desired. All cannabis concentrates are made using the same basic process. First, a solvent (usually butane or CO2) is run through the cannabis buds to extract all of the active ingredients from the plant. The solvent is then evaporated from the mixture, leaving a concentrated extract of the plant’s resins. This resin contains a high concentration of cannabinoids, which are the psychoactive chemicals in marijuana.

Marijuana shatter resembles honey in colour and can range in transparency. When shatter weed is warm, its consistency is indeed very similar to thick honey. When it’s cold, this type of concentrate is hard and brittle like hard candy. If dropped or tapped, it shatters just like glass does, hence the name “shatter weed.”

Because of its high potency, shatter weed is generally recommended for patients with a higher tolerance who may require a stronger medication.
