Cannabis Education A Guide to Shatter

Jun 30, 2023

Interested in trying shatter? Here are the basics to get you started.


Shatter is a highly potent cannabis concentrate made using a solvent-extraction method. It is thin and hard with a brittle, glassy texture and can be dark amber to bright yellow in colour.

The Benefits of Shatter

The main selling point of shatter is its potency. Shatter is a highly potent concentrate, usually with THC levels of 65 to 85 percent. Generally speaking, shatter hits quickly and intensely, so if you want an immediate high, this may be the right option for you. Keep in mind that shatter’s high potency may not be the best for beginners. Even if you are a longtime cannabis user, when you try shatter for the first time, start with a very small dose.

Shatter is also popular for its texture. It is much harder than other concentrates, making it easier to get an accurate dose and to transfer to a vape or dab rig.

How is Shatter Consumed?

Shatter is typically consumed using a dab rig or a vaporizer. A dab rig is a type of water pipe designed specifically for concentrates. If you want to go the vaporizer route, make sure that you have a vape designed for cannabis products.

To store shatter, wrap it in wax paper first and then place it in an airtight container and keep in a cool area.
