Shatter is an extract, which is a type of cannabis concentrate. It is produced using a combination of weed plant materials and solvents. The appearance of shatter is typically translucent, although its coloring can range from a bright honey-like amber to a darker yellow shade. Visually, all shatters may appear to have the same consistency, but the physical texture of individual products can vary. From extremely brittle to a taffy like snap-and-pull quality. This inconsistency gives some insight into an individual product’s cannabinoid profile. Shatter that is higher in tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) will tend to be more sappy than a product with a higher level of tetrahydrocannabinolic acid. It will be much more brittle by comparison. At room temperature, THC is a sappy oil, giving shatter with a high THC content a more viscous consistency. THCA is solid at room temperature, yielding a fragile concentrate that’s easier to break apart.
