All in all Manitoba has got some spectacular places to visit, and various activities to enjoy.  Perhaps at the end of the day, you may want to relax and unwind with a cannabis session.  Most cannabis users have experienced the more traditional methods of consuming marijuana like smoking a joint or packing a bowl.  Nowadays, a newer method of consuming marijuana is through cannabis vape pens and dabbing.  If you’re planning a trip, or even if you’re not but you just want to be more discreet about your marijuana consumption, cannabis vape cartridges might be an option.  If you’re curious and find yourself asking, what is cannabis oil, shatter and wax extracts?  Keep on reading to get a basic idea of what each of them are.  Cannabis oils are extracts from cannabis plants. Shatter is a translucent type of extract, that has an oily consistency and has a glass-like appearance. Wax extracts are a crystallized, non- transparent oil.  The consistency of wax extracts can range from gooey to soft and brittle.  If the wax extract contains more moisture it creates a gooey texture sometimes referred to as “budder”.  “Crumble” or “honeycomb” is used to describe the harder wax that has a soft and brittle texture.  In general, the term wax can be used to describe any of these textures.  Cannabis oil, shatter and wax extracts are used when consuming cannabis through the method of dabbing or when using cannabis vape pens.  Whether you are dabbing or vaping cannabis you can try each type and decide which product works best for you.
