Shatter has a see-through, lightly-coloured consistency resembling glass and boasts a THC content as high as 60-90%. Dry flowers are blasted with butane which acts as a solvent for extraction. It is important that no agitation occur during this process as it changes darkens the consistency to undesirably murky. The butane is then burnt off to leave highest amounts of THC and flavourful terpenes in the finished product.
