What is Shatter?
Shatter is just one form of dabs, the catch-all term for marijuana concentrates produced by extracting cannabinoids like THC and CBD, the plant’s psychoactive chemicals. Other well-known forms include “budder,” which has a creamier, wax-like consistency, and oils, which are golden and honey-like. For all dabs, extraction involves running a solvent — usually butane, carbon dioxide, or propane — through cannabis buds to pull out the cannabinoids, then evaporating the solvent and gathering the resins left behind.
The term “shatter” is derived from the fact that the leftover resin is often cooled into a glassy sheet, similar to boiled caramel hardening into candy. When dropped, the sheet — surprise — shatters. On the street, users are more likely to buy it in a thick, taffy-like form that sells for $40-60 per gram.
Of all the concentrates, shatter is the most potent — it goes through an intensive filtration process to get rid of other naturally occurring fats and waxes — which is how it manages to pack its active ingredients in crazy high amounts (regular weed, when smoked, only has about 5-18 percent cannabinoid content). While this extra step optimizes purity, it also filters out the dank hydrocarbons known as terpenes, which make up cannabis’s flavour and scent.
Smoking shatter is a fairly involved and relatively expensive process that, if you’re serious about it, involves a glass pseudo-bong known as a “rig.”
