Users new to the wide world of marijuana concentrates can become quickly overwhelmed by the vast choices available to them. Knowing the difference between shatters, oils, and waxes is knowledge typically relegated to devoted stoners, but as neighborhood dispensaries offer more varied and attractive concentrates, it’s wise to educate yourself on these incredibly fun and marvelously powerful ways to consume marijuana.

Wax and shatter concentrates are BHO extracted – meaning that the flower is processed with butane hash oil until the chemical elements are purged and all that remains is a viscous, sticky residue. Both oil and shatter can be used in vaporizers to great effect. Oil is most often purchased as a cartridge for a vape pen or in a syringe. Glossy bits of shatter are the concentrate of choice for dabbing.

Wax is produced in a similar way, however, during the extraction process, the product is whipped furiously, incorporating large amounts of air into the reduction. The result is a dense, flaky product that finds its greater purpose sprinkled atop a packed bowl or as a way to dress up a fat joint.
