April 10, 2020 0 Comments

Are you on the hunt of the cannabis product with the highest THC concentration? Shatter weeds should not let you search far and wide. While other cannabis products with high THC concentration are often in their liquid form, shatter weeds are glass-like, hardened wax in form.

Shatter weeds or shatters are made after all traces of solvents, which are used in the extraction of the cannabinoid from the cannabis plant, are removed through a vaporization process to come up with pure cannabinoid concentrate. With the removal of the solvent, the most undiluted cannabinoid concentrate is then left to harden to form the solid glass-like wax which is now called shatter weeds.

Here are some important things that you should know before you shift from other cannabinoid products to shatter weeds.

If it is your first time to use shatter weeds, you must try it with some extra care. As said, shatters have high THC concentration which can trigger some unhealthy reactions. While it is the most undiluted cannabinoid concentrate because all components of the solvent used during vaporization are removed, much of the other elements of the cannabis plant is also removed during the final filtration process. These elements include residual wax, fats, and terpenes, which are known to produce the pungent aroma and flavor of cannabinoid products.

After the final filtration process, an 80% THC and CBD concentrate are extracted. With this staggering potency, it helps if all new users of shatter weeds should know the right dosage to prevent instant and uncontrollable physical, mental, and emotional effects which are due to the psychoactive properties of THC.

Uses and Side Effects

All cannabis products are safe and therapeutic when their use is not abused. Shatter weeds, just like other cannabinoid products, are excellent in the treatment of anxiety and depression disorders. When taken more than the prescribed dosage, Shatter weeds, with its high concentration of the psychoactive THC, can lead you to a whole lot of medical issues such as increased blood pressure and heart rate, respiratory illnesses, and addiction.

Because of its hardened form, the technique of using shatters vary from other liquid cannabinoid products. Some use shatters by crumbling it and combine the particles with cannabis flower to form a joint. However, this method is wasteful as shatters are difficult to melt.

Another method is through vaping pens. Using a dab rig to melt the shatter and placing them on a wax vape pen may be a less wasteful means of using shatters.
