Shatter StrainsJohnny Walker
Shatter refers to the cannabis concentrate that is extracted with the use of Butane as the solvent for extraction. The raw cannabis plant is soaked into the solvent to naturally separate the major cannabis compounds, such as terpenes and cannabinoids. The solvent is then evaporated until the compounds are left, and these compounds make up the solid and translucent Shatter.
Shatter is usually consumed through dabbing, which involves using a dab rig, which uses the method of vaporization off of a specialized water pipe. Shatter is highly demanded and consumed by dabbing enthusiasts because of its significantly high potency. It can contain 80 to 90 percent of THC, which is the active component of cannabis concentrates that gives the psychoactive effect or a good sensation when smoked.
