Strain: Pineapple Express
What is shatter?
Shatter is a type of butane hash oil (BHO) cannabis extract made from trichomes stripped away from cannabis flowers. It has a honey-gold colour and is named for its solid form: when dropped, it breaks or “shatters” like glass. Shatter must be heated and then the smoke inhaled, and there are a few ways to do this. The best way to use shatter is with a dabbing rig, special pipes or bongs used for consuming concentrates, extracts and oils. Adding small pieces to a bowl, joint or blunt are also good ways to consume shatter.
About this Strain:
This heady skunk is a Canadian original, grown for decades on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. Island Sweet Skunk smells and tastes exactly as its name implies: sweet and skunky. It also delivers aromatic hints of the tropics. The sativa/indica ratio is 80:20. This shatter is useful in relieving anxiety, depression, nausea, and pain. It can also help with nerve pain, migraines, arthritis, and GI disorders. This strain is most popular in its home territory, British Columbia and Ontario, along with Colorado and the Pacific Northwest. It’s much harder to find elsewhere. The cerebral high packs a major mood boost, with feelings of happiness and euphoria. It tends to promote energy and creativity, but there’s also a mellow body effect that encourages relaxation.
