How to Smoke Shatter: A Guide by Strains Dispensary Perris, CA

Shatter has become an increasingly popular concentrate for many reasons stemming from its potency and consistency. But some uncertainty remains among our customers about the best ways to consume shatter as evidenced by the common question that our budtenders get at Strains Dispensary Perris, CA – how should I smoke this? Read on for our guide about shatter’s preferred consumption methods.

What is Shatter?

Shatter is a cannabinoid-rich concentrate extracted from the cannabis plant. It gets its name from its brittle consistency that shatters when broken apart. Shatter can be consumed in a variety of ways, with the preferred method coming down to individual preference.

Overview of Preferred Consumption Methods

Here are the most common and preferred methods of consuming shatter:

  • Adding Shatter to a Joint or bowl: Shatter can be handled with hands with frozen shatter being easier as it can begin melting and get sticky if held for too long. Colder shatter gives you more time to prepare it with room-temperature shatter giving less time before it starts getting sticky and hard to handle.
  • Vape Pen: Vape pens are typically filled with shatter and a vaping agent to flow in liquid form to the atomizer for vaporization. This is a highly convenient and discrete method of consumption. We have a selection of pre-filled vape cartridges and pens at Strains Dispensary Perris, CA.
  • Dab Rig: Rigs are specialized smoking devices that come in a variety of forms. They are popularly used to consume all concentrates, including wax. Rigs look like bongs with a longer vertical chamber that holds the shatter. The wax can be smoked via a heated nail or e-nail for precise heating.

Dabbing Shatter Overview

This method requires a dab rig. Here are the 5 steps to do a dab:

  1. Break a small piece of shatter and place it on the dabbing tool.
  2. Heat the nail with the torch until hot or turn on the e-nail.
  3. If using a manually heated nail, allow it to cool for a few seconds and slide the dome over.
  4. Touch the dabbing tool with shatter to the heated nail to vaporize it.
  5. Cover the rig dome with the topper and inhale the vaporized shatter.
