In the past few years, Cannabis products are becoming more and more popular. When you hear cannabis, you imagine marijuana buds sold to enjoy the smoke but these new products differ. It includes extracts, which are concentrated in the form of wax, shatter, and oil. These concentrated extracts differ in texture and consistency. They contain cannabinoids like CBD, THC, CBC and more. They are medically relevant to treat people struggling with medical conditions like –

The potency of chemical compounds differs from one cannabis plant to another. It depends on variables like soil conditions, humidity, temperatures, and climate for growing.

Plants grown outdoors are less potent than the ones grown indoors because of controlled process. For using medically, extract potency is also crucial to obtain desired results for patients.

Cannabis oil extracts

Oil extracts are thick, sticky and resinous. This liquid is also called honey oil [gold color] or butane oil [solvent used]. Extracted cannabis oil comprises of multiple cannabinoids like THC and CBD. Scientifically, it has been tested for thwarting cancer growth. It is also used to treat several medical conditions mentioned above. Potency level of Cannabis oil is 80% more than plant itself depending on the THC percentage extracted from the initial plant.

Oil can be taken orally in a capsule or dropped under your tongue. Oil can be used to cook because it has stickiness, which shatters and then turns to wax. However, use it with edible solvents like olive oil and butter.

Cannabis wax

It is also called budder, crumble, and flake extracts. They are thick, flaky, and opaque but moist in nature because it is just like bee-wax, which is the result of condensation due to quick stirring or heating. It differs in texture. Extraction process is just like cannabis oil. Cannabis plant is immersed in a lengthy tube or pipe with butane for extracting THC and wax through Butane Hash Oil extraction process.

Cannabis wax can be vaped at 399° with 4.2 V battery. It is less potent than cannabis oil because large quantity of wax and has sweet flavor.

Cannabis shatter

Shatters are clear and brittle, almost glass-like. They look like thick honey because of color and transparency. When warn it has consistency like thick honey but on cooling consistency is like glass, so it got named as shatter [breaks when dropped or tapped]

Cannabis shatter and oil are almost similar. Both are made from butane but shatter is more refined in comparison, so potency is obviously more around 90%. Other benefit is that shatter lasts longer and is more stable.

Shatters are not whipped like wax in the extraction process. It is placed on heated pen just like wax and used.
