What is Shatter?
Live Resin or Rosin both have a very malleable texture, while Shatter is glass-like and fragile looking. Typically, Shatter is made from flower, shake or trim like other concentrates; then butane and other solvents are used to remove the oils from the plant and put through vacuum or winterizing processes in order to get the glass-like consistency. The color of Shatter typically does not matter when it comes to potency like other concentrates, but instead taking a look at its makeup will present a better idea. A lot of individuals love shatter, but with the texture being less malleable than other concentrates, it’s not as popular. Ask a budtender next time you come in and see if Shatter is right for you!
