What is Shatter?
The term shatter is used to describe an exceptionally potent type of butane hash oil (BHO). This cannabis concentrate can contain up to 85% cannabinoid composition. Virtually all cannabis concentrates are created by harvesting and concentrating trichomes. The amount of hydrocarbon solvent purged and the quality of the cannabis used decides the purity. It gets its name from its hard, glass-like appearance and from the fact that it shatters when dropped. Occasionally, shatter is sold under other names like “pull n’ snap” or “sap” which exhibits a runnier consistency depending on the final concentrate texture.
Which strain is right for me?
Indica plants are typically shorter with wide leaves. The buds of an indica plant will usually be quite dense. Indica based strains are relaxing and calming. Although indica’s are associated with more bodily sensations, they also include powerful psychoactive effects. In particular these strains are often recommended for nighttime use.
Sativa plants are typically taller with long thin leaves. The bud of a sativa plant is typically less dense and somewhat feathery. Sativa’s usually come with a cerebral high feeling. Users should additionally expect physical sensation. Traditionally, sativa strains are uplifting and euphoric, which is better suited to daytime use.
Hybrid plants are a cross breed between indica and sativa plants. Very few cannabis strains are a pure indica or pure sativa. Contrarily, most strains of cannabis are a hybrid of the two. Additionally within this subset there can be indica dominant, and sativa dominant strains as well as hybrid strains that are a relatively even indica/sativa split and will offer a balanced variety of effects.
