HOW SHATTER IS PRODUCED Although these extracts vary in consistency, they usually undergo the same process when extracted. First, the marijuana buds are immersed in a solvent (usually propane, butane or carbon dioxide)in order to extract the entire chemical compound from the plant. After extraction, the solvent is later evaporated from the extracts and you are left with the cannabis resin. Other solvents that can be used for extraction are Isopropyl alcohol, ethanol, water/steam, hydrocarbon.It is also calculated that six (6) grams of marijuana oil is extracted from one (1) ounce of marijuana plant and just as it takes about five (5) pounds of marijuana plant to obtain about 120 to 140 grams of marijuana oil.Extracting these concentrates can be done at home and you will likely stumble upon a couple of websites on the internet explaining the process but there are certain risks involved. One of the major concerns is that most home-based producers lack an appropriate ventilation system when heating flammable solvents like butane.Are you located in Canada and are looking for an online dispensary that will ship shatter directly to you? The first drugs were likely discovered through accident and observation. As early humans tried different plant, animal, and mineral substances, they realized that some substances produced special medicinal effects. They were then able to use the substances that had beneficial effects to achieve desired results, and they passed their knowledge of these drugs from generation to generation. This has not been the case with recreational drugs; with these, there has been a fast track to find new ways to create, distill and distribute highly addictive drugs for profit and gain. The latest addition to this race is the marijuana derivative called SHATTER. Also called Butane Hash Oil (BHO), Shatter has a number of street names, including Honey Oil, Wax, Sap, and Budder, Shatter is still a relatively new marijuana concentrate that garnered its nicknames due to its brittle texture and color (although some call it Dabs because the drug is used by taking a small amount of the extract and dabbing it onto a heated surface and then inhaling the smoke. Even more alarming than Shatters highly addictive properties, however, is the manufacturing process, in which a natural plant is mixed with a chemical which, in turn, can often yield literally explosive results. At its base level, Shatter is concentrated marijuana that is extracted through an extremely volatile chemical process. Shatter contains the same psychoactive properties of marijuana in the form of THC, but is much more potent than marijuana in its traditional form, containing upwards of 60-80% THC (held up against the usual 20% found in everyday marijuana). Men and women who use Shatter get higher faster, but the effects which range from intoxicating to intense often include bouts of overwhelming paranoia, anxiety and even psychosis.
