Concentrates at a glance
With its distinctive glass-like texture and amber color,
shatter is incredibly refined with very few impurities.
Badder is produced when the extracted cannabis oil is whipped (rather than being allowed to dry into a hardened crystal) until it has the soft consistency of butter and a color reminiscent of fudge.
Waxes have an even softer granular texture and tend to be more aromatic.
Live resin is made by flash freezing cannabis flower directly after harvest (whereas the previous concentrates used dried flower) and aims to capture the full character of the plant at its freshest.
