“Whole Melt Shatter” likely refers to a type of cannabis concentrate known as shatter. Shatter is a highly potent and concentrated form of cannabis that is produced through a process of extracting the plant’s essential oils, cannabinoids, and terpenes. It is named for its brittle and glass-like texture that can shatter when broken into pieces.
Here’s some information about shatter and how it is commonly used:
Production Process: Shatter is typically made using a solvent-based extraction method, such as butane or CO2 extraction. The process involves passing a solvent through cannabis plant material to extract the desired compounds. The solvent is then purged to leave behind a concentrated oil that solidifies into a brittle, translucent substance.
Appearance and Texture: True to its name, shatter has a glassy appearance and is often amber or gold in color. It is known for its breakable texture, which easily shatters into pieces when touched or manipulated.
Potency: Shatter is considered one of the most potent cannabis concentrates available. It can have extremely high levels of THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, which makes it popular among experienced users seeking intense effects.
Consumption: Shatter is typically consumed through vaporization (vaping) or dabbing. Vaping involves using a vaporizer pen or device to heat the shatter to a temperature where it vaporizes, allowing the user to inhale the vapor. Dabbing involves using a specialized dab rig, which is a type of water pipe designed for concentrates. A small amount of shatter is applied to a heated surface (called a nail), and the resulting vapor is inhaled through the rig.
Effects: Due to its high potency, shatter can produce powerful and immediate effects. Users may experience intense euphoria, relaxation, increased creativity, and altered sensory perception. The effects can be overwhelming for those with low tolerance or limited experience with cannabis.
