If you are interested in what is cannabis shatter and if it is a good kind of concentrate to make cannabis edibles, then this article will show you the various types of shatter. There are three main categories which include ice, crystal, and wax. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages. I will also try to explain what each type of shatter looks like.
Ice cannabis concentrate is the most expensive of the three and usually only found on high end grinders and coffee presses. Shredded ice is typically a dark brown/black in color and tends to have a frosty look to it when you consume it. You will often find it in an amber or golden color and its consistency is very fragile so it can almost break apart when properly tapped with a finger nail or other dabbing tool.
Wax cannabis concentrates are the cheapest of the three. They are made from melted stems, leaves, and buds (not trim) of the cannabis plant. While they may seem low in price, they contain much less than the shatter. In addition to containing less THC and fewer cannabidiols, waxes do not contain terpenes which are the natural compounds found in cannabis that give it its distinct flavor and aroma.
What is cannabis shatter?
It is a new and innovative way to vaporize your bud. Vaporizing allows the oil and terpenes contained within the marijuana to be inhaled by both the smoker and the people around him/her. By inhaling the oils and terpenes, you can experience a higher high that is similar to being high except you don't have the annoying side effects that come with intoxication.
