Consuming hemp-derived products is undoubtedly on the rise over the last few years, and this is where manufacturers can get truly creative with their inventions and come up with an abundance of different products, one of them being cannabis concentrates – products like our gummies, vape cartridges, honey, balms, salves, and creams are all considered some forms of cannabis concentrates in one way or another. And, it doesn’t stop there – cannabis concentrates also come in many different shapes and forms! We’re all about ‘the more, the merrier’, but sometimes, having so many options can be a bit confusing. This is why we find it essential to educate customers on things related to consuming a particular product. 


So, what exactly are cannabis concentrates? 


The cannabis plant has trichomes all over it, and these trichomes resemble very tiny, thin fibers. Trichomes are responsible for carrying the distinguishing characteristics of the plant. Cannabis concentrates are what happens when you place cannabis into a solvent to extract a particular component from the trichomes. The final extract is going to be your concentrate. This concentrate can contain the full cannabinoid and terpene profile of the hemp plant. Or, it can be just one particular component (such as Delta 8 THC). 


What is Shatter?


Slabs of shatter are practically the same thing as dabs; these are the products that we end up with when we place cannabis into butane hash oil (BHO). With just a little bit of additional magic in the Grassroots Harvest laboratory, we end up with a solid matter of pure Delta 8 THC concentrate – with less than 0.3% Delta 9 THC, of course! 


Although the terms are frequently used interchangeably, perhaps there is one minor difference between dabs and shatter. It lies in their consistency. Dabs look quite similar to wax, while shatter is usually solid.


How to Take Delta 8 THC Shatter


Just like dab, the slabs of shatter are also consumed using a method called dabbing. Usually, this is using an oil rig (aka a dab rig), a pipe, or a water pipe. 

Dab rig


Smoking shatter with a dab rig is the most popular method of consuming it. It’s also the only technique that the majority of the consumers know how to use. Consisting of a glass chamber, a nail, and a dome, dab rigs make it easy to get the most out of it. 


The glass chamber is a part of the rig that everyone is familiar with, but where things get a bit confusing is the nail; the nail is a small, but extremely important part of the rig without which it would be impossible to smoke shatter. The nail can be made from ceramic, titanium, or glass and it heats up the shatter and makes it smokable by vaporizing it.
On the other hand, the dome is the top part of the dab rig which serves to prevent the smoke from escaping – a feature that bongs don’t have. 

If you don’t own a dab rig, there are plenty of other techniques you can use to smoke shatter. These include pipes, water pipes, and blunts.

Smoking shatter using anything else other than a dab rig usually requires you to add dried CBD flower and then place the shatter on top, which some shatter consumers find a bit inconvenient and impractical. 

Due to it being one of the purest forms of cannabis concentrates, shatter can be quite strong for those consuming it the first time. That’s why we recommend not operating vehicles or heavy machinery when taking Delta 8 THC Shatter.
