What is Shatter?
Shatter, with its flawless amber glass transparency, has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality– the consistency and texture of oil comes down to different factors entirely. The reason shatter comes out perfectly clear has to do with the molecules which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, and high terpenecontents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
Dabbing is the flash vaporization of cannabis concentrates, when they are applied to a hot surface and inhaled. The tool to smoke dabs looks like a smaller version of a water bong. While cannabis tends to test between 15-25% THC, concentrates typically range between 50-80% THC.
Dabbing isn’t for everyone. The dosing process involves starting small, but concentrates can offer you new heights of physical relief and unique cerebral effects. Extracts also contain a lot less plant material than flower, so you’re inhaling more cannabinoids (e.g. THC, CBD) and less combusted resin.
