So, if shatter generally refers to THC, then what is CBD shatter? Well, they’re very much alike, only instead of using THC concentrates, CBD shatter is made with CBD isolates. Which means unlike its THC sibling, it’s legal to buy in every state. And like other forms of isolates such as crystals, wax and powders, shatter gets its name for its texture, and the fact that it can literally shatter when you handle it.
In terms of process, CBD shatter is made by extracting cannabinoids from the hemp plant and then repeatedly filtering it until only CBD is left. If the isolate remains undistributed and you keep it away from heat and light changes, it then sets into a shatter. The shatter has the same potency as other isolates, so choosing CBD shatter really just comes down to what you’ll be using it for as well as your personal preference.
