Concentrates are the hottest item on the cannabis market at the moment. They are sought-after for their strong psychoactive properties despite only needing a minimal amount of product.
One of the most touted cannabis concentrates is called shatter, a beautiful golden glass-like substance that is easy to break – hence the name.
What is Shatter?
Shatter is the product produced when an extractor places cannabis in a solvent such as butane or CO2 to create a golden liquid. That liquid then solidifies itself when cooled and becomes what we know as shatter.
Ways to Smoke Shatter
There are four ways to smoke shatter. Some are more simple than others.
One of the most user-friendly ways to smoke shatter when you’re first trying it out is by adding it to your joint.
Place a few pieces of the broken-up concentrate into the bed of buds and roll it up. It’s that simple. You can also add shatter to pre-rolled spliffs. Simply unroll the spliff, and add a few shatter crumbles, and then reroll it.
2 Dab Rig
The infamous dab rig is the most popular way to consume cannabis concentrates, and shatter is no different.
To smoke shatter on a dab rig, you will first need to heat the nail before placing the crumbles on it. Once you put the pieces in place after heating the nail, cover them with a carb cab.
After that is all said and done, you can now inhale the intoxicating vapor through your lungs.
Vape machines that are able to handle solid concentrates are also fantastic for consuming shatter. This one is pretty self-explanatory. You add the shatter to the machine chamber, let it vaporize, and then inhale.
Similar to rolling, adding crumbled shatter pieces to a bowl of bud is probably the easiest way to smoke the concentrate. Especially if it’s your first time trying this type of concentrate.
First, you will need to pack your bowl half full of your favorite bud. Then add a few pieces of the concentrate. And finally, fill the top with more bud. Now, you are all ready to go.
Which Method Works Best?
The simple answer: Using a dab rig is the best way to smoke shatter.
But if you are just starting with this concentrate adding it to your joint or a bowl of bud is the easiest and most recommended.
