Shatter is a highly concentrated extract created when butane or another solvent is sprayed or “blasted” through plant material, extracting out the psychoactive compounds into a liquid oil. This oil is then “purged” in a vaccum chamber or oven for 48 to 96 hours to further purify the product, and to remove any butane or residual solvents. The end result is a potent, hardened oil that is higher in THC and CBD than regular cannabis flowers. It shatters into pieces, (hence its name), when in its stable state, and slightly gooey when warmer. It is easiest to handle when cold or frozen!
