Shatter Is the Most Powerful Marijuana Concentrate. Cannabis shatters boasts a beautiful golden color. It is a hard, glass-like extract that usually shatts when it is drop. So, Shat is extremely translucent, often leading people to assume that it is the purest of all cannabis concentrates. It can contain up to about 80% concentrations of THC and other cannabinoids. However, Shatters gets its name from what it does when you drop it. As oppose to hash oil, which is sticky, or budder, which is waxy, shatter is hard and brittle like one of those pieces of strawberry hard candy your grandmother loudly unwraps at the movie theater. And just like granny’s hard candy, it can crack into a bunch of tiny pieces if you tap it too hard with your dabber.
