Pot smokers looking for a heavier-hitting high are turning to “Shatter”, a Marijuana concentrate that packs 80% cannabinoid content. Drug officials doubt how to deal with the drug, a smooth, glassy substance that is enough more potent when smoked but is still, ultimately a weed derivative and thus not particularly unsafe.

Shatter is one form of dabs, the catch-all term for marijuana concentrates produced by extracting cannabinoids such as THC and CBD, the plant are psychoactive chemicals. Other well-known forms include “budder”, which has a creamier, wax-like consistency, and oils which are golden and honey-like.

The term “shatter” is came out from the fact that the leftover resin is often cooled into glassy sheet.

Of all concentrates, shatter is the most potent – it goes through extra filtration process to get rid of some naturally occurring fats and waxes – which is how it manages to pack its active ingredients in crazy high amounts (regular Marijuana, when smoked, only has about 5-18 percent cannabinoid content).
