So what exactly is shatter, and why should you take this into account when looking for a strong, consistent high? Shatter is a cannabis concentrate that is made by extracting the appropriate compounds and stimulants from the cannabis plant using a solution. The end product is a resin that is created to deliver the ideal high.
When shatter is processed, it takes on the appearance of a honey-like substance and when it is warm, it becomes viscous and thick like honey and has a similar texture and colour. At lower temperatures, the resin retains the same colour but becomes more fragile and glass-like. The resin will shatter into small fragments if it is dropped or hit with a hard object after it has cooled, hence the name "shatter."
