What Are Concentrates?

Let’s take a quick look at what concentrates are, In case you aren’t familiar with this term. Concentrates are super potent versions of marijuana flower buds. The trichomes and chemicals that make up the medicinal. And psychoactive components of marijuana are strippe. from plant matter through a process known as solvent extraction. When the stripping process is complete. All that’s left are the cannabinoids (such as THC, CBD, CBN, etc), flavonoids, and terpenes. This is the concentrate that makes dabbing so great.



Marijuana smokers who are looking for a heaver-hitting high are turning to “shatter weed,”. A concentrate that contains up to 90% cannabinoid content. And in some cases even reaching a whopping 99%. These days, cannabis is reaching unprecedented levels of potency. With concentrations of THC exceeding 20%. But, for weed enthusiasts and experienced smokers who want to be adventurous, this s won’t do the trick.
This is where concentrates such as bubble melt hash, budder. And honey oil come into play, but there are few concentrates stronger than shatter weed.
shatter weed is one form of dabs. The term coined for cannabis concentrates produced by extracting cannabinoids like CBD. And THC. Shatter, wax, honey, taffy, budder, sap, and oil are all types of extracts. The idea behind these extracts is pretty simple. The cannabis plant is process through a solvent, often, butane and sometimes CO2. In the case of when butane is use. the raw plant material is blaste or soaked in butane and heated at a later stage to get rid of the solvent. The resulting product is butane hash oil (BHO).
Shatter weed is a phrase used to describe an potent type of butane hash oil. BHO uses butane to separate the cannabinoids from trichomes in marijuana plant matter. Which concentrates the cannabinoids. Trichomes are tiny glass-like crystals on the cannabis plant. That contain the highest THC, terpene, and other cannabinoid concentrations. Almost all concentrates
created by harvesting and concentrating trichomes.
The process of making these extracts all follow the same principle. It’s how the process is being performed that indicates whether it’s wax, budder, or shatter. When it comes to the extract-making process. The solvent pulls terpenoids, flavonoids, cannabinoids. And other active cannabis compounds from the raw plant material. before it evaporate from the end product (you do not want solvent residues in your hash oil).
When it comes to the “how” of the process, waxes. And other similar concentrates are usually whipped, stirred. Or even shaken during several stages of the production process. This irritates the individual molecules within the extract. Resulting in a final product that is more creamy or cloudy in appearance and texture. Shatter, but, is not irritated during the process. This results in a more translucent appearance.
Shatter weed gets its name from what would happen if you were to drop it. Unlike budder which is waxy or hash oil which is sticky. Shatter is hard and brittle, like a piece of hard candy from your childhood. And yes, it would shatter into hundreds of little pieces if you were to drop it or tap it too hard with your dabber.
