Rockstar Shatter comes from a smooth strain, even smoother in its pure, concentrated form. With a strong body and cerebral high, it is a favorite among those looking for relief from pain and sleep disorders. The smell has some very subtle pine or perhaps even citrus along with earthy or dankness to it. The taste is very bold or heavy hitting if you will, which as the nose gives you a more dank taste of skunkish flavour, but you can sense the mixing of fruit or pine in there.
What is Shatter
Shatter is an extract of marijuana the term itself comes from its appearance which is similar to that of glass. When dropped it shatters just as glass would. On the streets some can buy it in a thicker, taffy like form for $60-70 a gram. However that form is usually made in someones garage or bedroom and still may contain butane (or other chemicals; not thoroughly purged!). This can be quite injurious to ones lungs and health!
Therefore we STRICTLY ADVISE to never buy EXTRACTS from shady dealers or untrustworthy sources!
IS shatter the same as wax or budder
Yes, and no. They are all extracts of marijuana containing highly concentrated amounts of cannibinoids. However, Shatter and Rosin are the purest amongst concentrates.
Rosin does not use solvents and rather uses a heat and pressurized system to extract the resin from the marijuana.
When compared the two (shatter and rosin) are aesthetically indistinguishable; however in lab tests rosin will never show any leftover hydrocarbons in (ppm) part per million.
Budder and waxes are made using Butane Oil by pressing it through the plant material. These typically have a consistency of ear wax. Hence the respective, name.
How Do I smoke Shatter
Typically users would use a vaporizer pen or a dab rig to consume or smoke shatter. One gram of concentrate contain 75-85% (5 times greater then marijuana; on its own!). 1 gram typically gives you 25-30 hits or dabs!
Using the rig the process simply involves using a hand-help torch, heating up the nail until its red hot. The using a metal tool or utensil to take a tiny amount of extract, dabbing it on the hot nail. Then carefully inhaling the smoke, and quickly releasing (as exhale)!
*Remember there are many flavours and varieties; each with their own medicinal benefits! Concentrates will always have strong more concentrated effects in comparison to their flowering counterparts!
