Shatter is a cannabis extract prepared via a mix of cannabis plant material and solvents, also known as a cannabutter. Shatter weed has a translucent appearance and can range from golden honey hue to corn oil yellow in color. All shatters may have the same look and feel, but their physical texture varies significantly. Some people divide pull ‘n’ snap shatter into two categories: pull ‘n’ snap (pulling the material apart) and snap-and-pull (snapping it back together). This lack of consistency can provide some information about the concentration of cannabinoids in a particular product.
Many concentrate producers also make a strain of shatter that is high in cannabidiol (CBD) and low in THC. CBD shatter is CBD in its purest form – without any THC. Because of this, it allows users to consume the plant’s medicinal and therapeutic benefits without feeling high.
CBD shatter can be a great alternative for medical marijuana patients and other consumers interested in the therapeutic and wellness advantages of cannabis concentrates. It’s important to remember that CBD is usually more expensive than THC. Just be sure you’re getting shatter that has been manufactured especially for high levels of CBD and low levels of THC since this will maximize any therapeutic benefits while minimizing the psychoactive effects of THC.
How to consume Cannabis Shatter
Not all concentrate consumers are dabbers, just as not every extract is a distillate. The procedure of heating a concentrate or extract to the point that it evaporates and produces a highly concentrated vapor that the user can breathe is known as dabbing. Vaping, tinctures, topicals, edibles–there are many ways to enjoy concentrated cannabis, aka dabs. Dabbing is the most popular method of using these products, which is why you’ll often hear them referred to as such. First, consider your goals, then decide which cannabis concentrates and consumption methods will work best for you.

Difference Between Shatter and Wax
The difference between shatter and wax is largely just cosmetic; it results from varying degrees of molecular agitation during processing. Shatter looks like glass because the marijuana molecules were left alone, while those in wax were agitated.
The amount of transparency in the production process does not show how potent the extract is. In simpler terms, shatter doesn’t always have more THC than wax, and vice versa. To know the strength and what chemicals are in a specific product, look at its lab results from your local dispensary.
Another distinction between shatter and wax has to do with usage. Wax is softer and sometimes easier to handle using dabbing tools like scoops. You may find that shattering shatter into unpredictably sized pieces makes it a little more difficult to scoop and dose the correct-size dab because it tends to fracture into unevenly sized chunks when broken.
