Shatter is a cannabis concentrate that can pack up to 80% THC. Produced by extracting the THC and CBD from the marijuana plant usually by method of butane, carbon dioxide or propane pulling out the THC and evaporating the solvent and gathering all the “resin” left behind. Interestingly enough, shatter gets its name from the glass-like look it gets after cooling like cooked sugar. Being one of the most potent forms of cannabis, it goes through an additional filtration process that removes the extra fats and wax to give it that huge amount of THC content. Usually the extra step also removes the terpenes that give marijuana its scent and flavor.
Shatter effects, taste and flavor are different from which plant it comes from. For example, our Island Pink Kush is a Indica dominant strain that is known for its tropical island flavor and aroma that hold different fragrances of sweetness, skunky, and earthy taste to it. That when inhaled, starts off with a surge of cerebral euphoria that uplifts with waves of relaxation. Island Pink Kush also gives a short burst of motivation and focus that can open the doors of mental blocks for artistic adventures. Along with the great taste and flavor that it brings, its also a great way to treat chronic pain, stress and fatigue.
Whereas Island Pink Kush is more for a relaxing day on the couch, our next shatter lemon haze is for the more active and energetic type of person.
