VANCOUVER, BC, April 29, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Shatter is a popular concentrated cannabis extract. It is a derivative of butane hash oil, extracting cannabinoid and terpenoid molecules from marijuana flower buds and shake leaves, to create a resin crystal. When cooled, the resin takes a glass form that can be easily 'shattered'.

A national U.S. survey concluded that more than one third of regular cannabis users primarily consume concentrates, shatter being in that category of consumable cannabis products. It has a very high level of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which is the main active ingredient in marijuana. THC is the ingredient that makes users feel 'high' or relaxed.
Some shatter extracts can have between 80 to 90 per cent of THC purity. This potency has made shatter desirable to users, for both experimental, recreational and medicinal purposes. Users report to use the concentrate to aid with medical situations including sleep problems, anxiety and pain.
The study also concluded that most users choose cannabis concentrates for experimentation, given the high THC potency levels.
Cannabis concentrates like shatter are consumed using vap pens, or e-cigarettes, or rigs. These devices create an instant vapour of the extract, which can then be inhaled by the user.
"We would advise against do-it-yourself extracting of shatter or other concentrates. Butane is an odourless, colourless and highly flammable gas. This process should only be attempted by trained professionals in a controlled lab," said Steve of Serene Farms. "If you fail remove all the butane from the concentrate, you'll end up smoking it and that's very bad for your health. Serene Farms uses proper lab equipment and follows strict guidelines to ensure high-quality, safe extracts."
