Shatter – A Popular Cannabis Concentrate

Cannabis concentrates are the latest trend when we look at how the cannabis industry is evolving. Cannabis concentrates come in various forms and are also known by different names –  such as shatter, wax, oil, resin or dabs.Shatter is a type of concentrate that is currently very popular on the market. Shatter looks honey in colour and looks like glass when hard – if you drop it, it will shatter – hence the name.  Take note that only experienced smokers should consider using Shatter.


All cannabis concentrates have one thing in common: they are extracted from the cannabis plant. Cannabis concentrate is basically able to pack all the power of the cannabis plant into a micro dose. The result is that cannabis concentrates are quite expensive for the quantity produced. A gram of cannabis concentrate, for example, can easily cost in excess of R1500 and some of the top stuff can top out at R2500 per gram. While some cannabis concentrates will vary in texture, they all undergo the same basic process when being produced. Most of the high end producers will use a solvent to extract the concentrate. Once the solvent is evaporated off, you are left with a pure concentrate.


If you are looking for an insane high, then you need to use a “rig” which is a glass water pipe that looks very similar to a bong. You then use a heating element to heat up the shatter and inhale the vapour. This is not for the faint-hearted and only experienced smokers should consider using Shatter. It really is the Ferrari of smoking.
