SHATTER , It’s a translucent, and sometimes transparent, concentrate that’s made by forcing butane through cannabis material. The result is an amber liquid that is then left to cool. Once the temperature decreases, the liquid solidifies into shatter, which has the consistency of really, really thin peanut brittle. Shatter is just one form of dabs, the catch-all term for marijuana concentrates produced by extracting cannabinoids like THC and CBD, the plant’s psychoactive chemicals. Other well-known forms include “budder,” which has a creamier, wax-like consistency, and oils, which are golden and honey-like. For all dabs, extraction involves running a solvent — usually butane, carbon dioxide, or propane — through marijuana buds to pull out the cannabinoids, then evaporating the solvent and gathering the resins left behind.
