What Is Shatter?

Marijuana concentrates are the latest trend when it comes to the cannabis industry. “Concentrates” is an all-encompassing term for extracts from the cannabis plant. These concentrates can come in a variety of different forms and consistencies, and are referred to by several different slang terms. Whether it’s shatter, wax, errl, oil, live resin, or dabs, they all have one thing in common; they’re all extracts from the cannabis plant that concentrate chemical compounds (cannabinoids) like THC and CBD.

Wax is in Wiktionary and dabs in the online Oxford Dictionaries, but shatter, err, oil and live resin are in neither.

Given the growing rise in marijuana legalization, it seems likely that there will be a continued proliferation of terms like these.
