In the cannabis industry’s verbal lexicon, the word “shatter” is commonly used to describe a more solid, and concentrated type of cannabis extract from the essential oil form of the extract. Another element that sets shatter aside is that it typically has higher concentrations of the desirable cannabinoids like cannabidiol (CBD); compared to the essential oil forms of cannabis oil, CBD, hemp oil, flower, etc.
Shatter is essentially a non-soluble, solid form that it considered preferable by many to other oil forms because it’s generally less messy to use, easier to dose effectively, and more potent (concentrated). Regardless of these preferences, shatter provides us with an easy to use cannabis concentrate that’s much easier to dose via a pipe or vaporizer of some type.
Newer and more creative methods of delivering the vapor from melting or heating the vapor, and breathing it in (also called dabbing) is widely reflected in the various vaporizers and pipes available. The choices are dauntingly many, and are constantly evolving as the industry does.
CBD Concentrates vs CBD Shatter
As the name suggests, CBD concentrates are cannabidiol products that contain a natural ingredient in hemp or cannabis, as well as one of the 85 different types of cannabinoids found in the three plants species of cannabis. Cannabidiol is essentially extracted from the flower tops and leaves of the plant, usually via a carbon dioxide process (CO2) to offer higher purity levels, and eliminate the use of solvents. These concentrates are some of the desired forms of medical marijuana concentrates, due to their incredible healing properties.
Pure CBD shatter doesn’t contain the psychoactive cannabinoid THC, which means it won’t get you high. This makes this form of cannabinoid ideal for people seeking the medical benefits of CBD, such as the powerful neuro-generative healing and pain relief properties, without the “high” associated with marijuana or cannabis. CBD shatter is legal in all of the 50 states, and is 100% safe, 100% natural, and 100% non-addictive. Very few, if any, forms of pain relief can claim all the three attributes combined.
CBD rich products are continuously becoming available everywhere, and the CBD shatters are some of the fastest growing types of medical marijuana concentrates. This is perhaps due to the fact that legal CBD products are more effective and safer alternatives to pain relief treatments, and have incredible neuroprotectant and anti-convulsant properties that make them ideal for daily use.
