Before getting to know how to turn shatter into vape juice, be sure to familiarize yourself with your country or state’s laws on medicinal or recreational cannabis, particularly in high-potency forms such as shatter.
Let us have a look at what shatter actually is. Shatter, that is made using butane having a translucent texture and sap-like consistency, is a herbal concentrate. It can remain in its original state for a very long period of time at room temperature when it is stable. If it is not stable, sugaring will occur indicating that the product is unstable and is not appropriate for use. Shatter has a lot of different types. Some are dark colored that are made from the old trim material, helping in capturing more chlorophyll, nutrients and other plant materials, Since such a long time has passed the terpenes present in plants get the time to leave the plant material and escape before the processing has been completed.
Material that is freshly processed possesses a much lighter color and due to the presence of more terpenes, it has a pungent odor. The temperature at which the plant material was collected contributes largely to the final quality of the product. But the good news to consider is, it does not matter what is the physical state of the shatter, it works greatly in turning an E liquid to Vape.
Day by day, vaping cannabis, shatter, waxes and other herbal concentrates are getting popularity. And the reasons are quite obvious. It is due to the fact that you can vape anywhere you are. Also, vaping cannabis is a much healthier option for lungs. These facts make wax liquidizer a no brainer.
