Everything you need to know about CBD Shatter
CBD is all the rage, but have you heard of CBD Shatter? Simply put, it’s one of the most potent concentrations of cannabinoids on the cannabis market today. But you can also make your own shatter, find out what you need, what wax shatter means and what benefits the cannabinoids have for you now!
What is shatter?
Shatter has become a popular form among experienced CBD users because it contains high concentrations of cannabinoids. It is an extract, which is also known as BHO (Butane Hash Oil). Butane gas can be used for production, acting as a solvent to produce maximum concentrates of cannabinoids and trichomes. We use the much safer method of CO2 extraction for our lab staff and our customers. Trichomes are found in the centre of cannabis flowers and are recognisable as small, fine crystals.
To extract the trichomes, the plant or more precisely the flower has to be treated with e.g. butane and heated. Then the purified extracts are left to rest for a while until you get a golden, glassy extract, which is then called shatter. The name comes from the fact that the extract is very fragile. Shatter translates as “to break”.
Shatter is either used straight or processed into a wax. The concentration of cannabinoids is similar in shatter and wax, the biggest differences are in the consistencies. Wax is rather moist, shatter is brittle and reminds a bit of a crystal shard.
How do I make shatter?
If you have good cannabis flowers at home and a little time and patience, you can do the extraction yourself. You will need oven gloves, baking paper, kief and a hair straightener.
Kief is a very concentrated form of cannabis, it is the dust of the trichomes that contain large amounts of terpenes. In classic marijuana, trichomes also contain a high amount of THC, but in CBD flowers, the cannabis concentrates consist mainly of CBD. And now here are the step-by-step instructions on how to make your own shatter:
- Spread the kief on a baking paper in a square shape.
- Fold the baking paper in so that you have a covered Kief square. Now wrap a second sheet over it.
- Heat the iron, clamp the baking paper in between and hold it for 10 seconds.
- The honey-like contents will now seep out from the inner packet, which are waxes. Remove the outer paper and let the wax dry.
- When it has dried, you can scrape it off and then you will have your final product.
How do you use CBD shatter?
Shatter is usually vaporised under high temperatures. Vaporising allows the shatter to spread its full aroma. It is becoming more and more trendy to use quite expensive vaporizers to enjoy the full aroma when using it.
What is Wax Hash?
Cannabis Wax is a subspecies of BHO concentrates that are produced in the same way as Shatter. However, the dried form of the extract is not used pure, but processed into a concentrate, which looks a bit like beeswax. The CBD concentration is very high, similar to Shatter, the THC content is below 0.2 percent in legal products.
The special feature of shatter and wax hashish is, among other things, that the effect of the CBD sets in quickly and is felt stronger. When vaporising, the cannabis extracts are perceived very intensively, which is also an advantage of wax and shatter.
The differences are usually only in the consistencies. Both Wax and Shatter are extracts that are produced in a similar way and used later.
How much THC does Shatter have?
Cannabis is not legal in every country, in Germany there has been talk about legalisation for a long time, but it has not been implemented yet. Thus, if the Shatter concentrate contains more than 0.2% THC, it is not legal in Germany. However, this applies to all cannabis products and all methods of administration.
In the concentrates, the cannabinoids can contain a proportion of up to 90 percent, which explains the strong effect compared to classic cannabis or other plant material.
What is CBD Shatter?
CBD Shatter is a special type, as the distribution of cannabinoids is different. The hemp plant is extremely diverse and is used not only for the production of cannabis, but also for the production of CBD products. CBD Shatter is made from the hemp plant. The flowers used contain only the cannabinoid CBD and no intoxicating substances. There are special seeds that can be used to produce hemp plants without high-making cannabinoids. These can be used to produce classic budder, wax and much more. The well-known CBD oil also comes from the low-THC hemp plant.
What does 1g of Kief cost?
Kief is best made by yourself. You don’t need butane, just follow the instructions above. What you do need, however, are CBD buds, which you then use to make your shatter. There are some types of plants that you can use to make particularly high amounts of kief. Gorilla Glue is one of them.
Does hash make you high?
Hash is generally considered to be much more potent than traditional weed. Whether it contains THC depends on the flowers used, there are different types. You can only make legal BHO, shatter, wax or hash by using low-THC flowers. The percentage must not exceed 0.2 percent.
Is Kief stronger than weed?
Kief is one of the most potent extracts you will find, with a concentrated amount of terpenes and other valuable plant material. If you make BHO from Kief, you will have a much stronger concentration than with pure buds. Classic cannabis is made from parts of the flower and the plant, pistils and leaves are processed. Kief, on the other hand, brings you unadulterated and pure trichomes that you can later process into shatter or wax if you want to enjoy a special potency.
Kief is considered the precursor to hash, and pressing kief will eventually give you your hash. By heating and later pressing, you get a final product that is even stronger than kief. So you can classify it as follows:
Weed < Kief < Hash < Shatter, Wax, Isolate and co.
How else can shatter and wax be used?
Shatter and wax are two (almost) identical substances with some differences. They are more potent than the classic cannabis oil and wax, unlike shatter, is further processed after extraction. Butane can be used as a solvent in the production of , but in our case we only use CO2 extraction for the products, as we don’t really think much of working with butane.
The good thing is that the extraction processes are becoming simpler and simpler and butane is only used by a few manufacturers. CO2 extraction is the perfect alternative to produce wax and shatter safely. The prerequisite is that good buds are available. Ideally, they come from high-quality cuttings from our production.
If the isolated shatter or wax is not vaporised, it is even suitable for the production of a special hash oil.
