One of the most beautiful and photogenic types of cannabis products on the market right now is shatter. Highly sought after and often Instagramed, shatter burst onto the scene early this decade, giving cannabis consumers a potent new way to vape their favorite strains.
Shatter is a type of cannabis concentrate, created by extracting the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other chemical compounds found in the cannabis plant. The term shatter specifically refers to a specific texture of translucent cannabis concentrate that breaks and shatters like glass.
Cannabis concentrates are created by passing a solvent, such as butane, hexane, isopropyl, or CO2, through cured or fresh cannabis material that has been thoroughly ground. This produces a thick amber-colored cannabis oil full of the plant’s active chemical compounds.
Next, the solvent is purged from the oil using heat and vacuum. The resulting cannabis concentrate is then processed into one of a number of potential forms, including wax, crumble, honeycomb, sap, budder, live resin, and of course, shatter.
These concentrates are then vaporized or “dabbed” by consumers from a vape pen or specially equipped water pipe called a dab rig. With a potency ranging between 50-90 percent cannabinoids by weight, cannabis extracts like shatter are a fast, efficient, smoke-free way to consume cannabis.
Trulieve has come out with their very own easy to use shatter device for inhilation. Shatter and wax are typically administered using much more expensive and confusing tools so this should be a relief for anyone who is new to this potent form of medical cannabis. Heres the instructions they give us on how it all works.
To use with the Trulieve Concentrate Pen unscrew the mouthpiece to expose the atomizer, then unscrew the atomizer cap to reveal the heating chamber. Use the loading tool to place the concentrate directly on the heating coils. Be sure not to touch the coils with the metal tool as it may damage them. Once the concentrate is in place, screw the mouthpiece back on the unit. To turn on the device, click the power button 5 times. Then, press and hold the power button while drawing from the mouthpiece to enjoy your vapor. After 10 seconds, the Trulieve Concentrate Pen will stop heating automatically to preserve battery life. Another 5 clicks on the power button will turn the device off.
The Trulieve Concentrate Pen does not feature any type of temperature control. The only way you can control the temperature with the Trulieve Concentrate Pen is by manually pulsing the power button to try and maintain your preferred temperature. This means that the device will continue to heat the coils until you release the power button.
