The Name Shatter Says it All
We refer to it as cannabis shatter, but there are many industry names for the same product. You may have heard of cannabis wax, honeycomb, crumble, sap, budder, pull and snap or oil. All these names refer to the same product, cannabis shatter.
Cannabis shatter is one type of cannabis extract. A cannabis extract is a concentrated form of the cannabis plant’s most effective compounds. These are tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD). The process of extracting the essence of the cannabis plant can be done in several ways. The most common methods involve the use of solvents and butane. Cannabis Therapy believes that the chemical extraction process damages the product.
We therefore use a highly scientific method to get the concentrate out, without compromising the creation process. Once the process is complete, you are left with a very high quality, potent oil. Use this cannabis oil in a vaporiser or for dabbing. After the process to extract the concentrate, depending on the method you have used, you will end up with a product with a particular consistency. This is evidence of the quality of the extracts. If you would like to know more about our in-house method, please do not hesitate to contact us today.
What Exactly is Cannabis Shatter?
Cannabis shatter is an extract with the reputation in the cannabis world of being the cleanest and purest type of cannabis extract. Shatter resembles a clear sheet of glass because of the particular extraction process.
What exactly is Cannabis Wax?
Cannabis wax is a term describing oils that have lost some of their transparency during the extraction process. If the product is not purely transparent, it is not necessarily sub-standard. It is simply a by-product of the manufacturing process. Example: A bread baking in the oven is left in for 1 or two minutes longer. The result is a slightly browner but not burnt loaf. Similarly, we have the colour distinction between the Cannabis Wax and Cannabis Shatter.
