Shatter Concentrate gets its name for its shattered-glass like consistency since it often shatters into little pieces. Being known as one of the purest forms of concentrated cannabis, shatter is generally clear or yellowish in color. It’s smooth, solid, maybe a little sticky and is made into thin sheets much like caramel hard candy.
Badder Wax concentrate, unlike shatter, is waxy in nature. The consistency is much like warm candle wax and usually needs to be handled with a dab tool because they can be extremely sticky. Wax is normally yellowish in color and can be vaped or smoked out of a bong.
Dry Sift, also known as Kief, is the most basic of the cannabis concentrates. It is a golden powder-like substance that is left behind after bud is finely ground up and all that is left are the cannabis flower’s trichomes.
Crumble Wax is typically used to describe a type of wax extract that is already broken up or crumbled (hence the name). Crumble type of wax is considered harder to handle and less popular than other types of extracts.
Isolates and crystallines are the purest forms of concentrate on the market. There are lab-tested THC or CBD isolates that have 99.9% active cannabinoid contents in them. After the entire extraction takes place, all that remains are pure isolate crystals which appear as a crystalline powder.
Distillates are made by exposing a winterized and decarboxylated extract to heat and vacuum, which promotes the separation of cannabinoids based on their different boiling points.
