Shatter is a very potent cannabis concentrate that most often contains a THC content of around 65 – 80%. It is only rivaled in THC content by distillate and isolates. Distillate is widely available, contains around 80-96% THC, and is commonly found in vape pens and syringes. Isolate is extremely rare and difficult to synthesize, so it is mostly unavailable to the general consumer.
All THC concentrates, including Shatter, all start with raw flower grown on a female cannabis plant. Shatter primarily comes from two sources; shake and smaller buds. “Shake” or “trim” is a by-product of larger buds that have had their leaves (which contain THC) cut off to give them a manicured appearance so they can be sold to connoisseurs at a higher price on the retail market. Smaller buds are used because they usually contain less THC and are less aesthetically pleasing. This does not mean that the quality of the Shatter is compromised by using raw products that contain less THC. The scientific definition of a concentrate is “a relatively large quantity of a substance present in a smaller unit of a mixture.” Therefore, to use tiny buds and shake that perhaps contain 14 % THC, we concentrate it by using a closed loop system with solvents to create a product that is around 70-80% THC.
When taking marijuana plant matter through the extraction process, it is essential to note that less prevalent cannabinoids like Cannabinol (CBN) and Cannabigerol (CBN) become even less abundant. A close analogy that most people can identify with is pasteurization. A pasteurized fruit shake contains almost no vitamins because it has been brought to extremely high temperatures. Even though Cannabinoids are more robust, they still lose ground when going through this process. Depending on how many passes the oil goes through, the solvents and temperatures used by each lab can determine the amount of other beneficial cannabinoids the Shatter can carry.
There are two ways of making Shatter; open- and closed-loop systems. Open loop systems are regarded as dangerous and unprofessional. For this lesson, we will only cover Secret Smoke’s methodologies, which synthesize the best quality products for a customer that wishes to buy shatter online in Canada.
There are 2 common solvents used to make Shatter; butane and propane. However, butane is the primary non-polar hydrocarbon used in shatter extraction because it has a low boiling point of 31 degrees Fahrenheit, is cheaper than propane, and produces a high yield. Butane also preserves various cannabinoids/terpenes and allows for the brittle consistency indicative of Shatter.
The butane process begins with pressurized butane being funneled into a material column, washing over the plant material, causing the separation of terpenes and cannabinoids from the plant matter. Upon separation, the terpenes and cannabinoids will form “crude oil” and be transferred into a collection tank. From here, the oil is fed into a gas compressor where the butanes vapors are pulled from the oil. Finally, the vapors are cooled in a condensing tank, turning them back into a liquid to be recycled and sent back to the solvent tank, hence the name “closed-loop.” At this point, if the lab technician is not satisfied with the oil, it can be sent for a second pass through the system, making it an even cleaner product.
Looking to buy cannabis concentrates online at affordable prices? Here at Secret Smoke, we have a wide array of concentrates to choose from. We proudly provide Shatter made from top-quality flower for pure and potent cannabis-infused products. Enjoy your favourite Hybrid, Sativa, and Indica strains & get lost in a world of satisfying flavours.
At Club Canna, we have developed a proprietary extraction method; the lab uses a very mild solvent with an added step to extract as many natural terpenes and flavonoids as possible before the distillation process. This process allows us to collect and store the terpenes, cannabinoids, and flavonoids to add them back later for a natural taste. Additionally, this also aids in reflecting how the high from the flowers’ strain would feel in its original flower form. We realize this attribute is crucial for medicinal users looking for the effects of particular strains. Having these additional cannabinoids in a higher percentage is the trick that separates Club Canna from regular Shatter.

It is a giant misconception that the color of Shatter directly correlates with quality. Many people that dab shatter rely on this; however, this is quite far from the truth. For the most part, the colour of the Shatter is only a reflection of how dark the buds were in the material column. For instance, running the black garlic strain through extraction would indeed indeed turn out much darker than a lighter strain such as the Mac 1 strain.
Like any cannabis product, storing your stash in a cool, dark and dry place is always good. In cultivation, it is said that a 16-degree temperature coupled with a relative humidity of 60% makes for an optimal environment for the preservation of terpenes and cannabinoids during the curing and drying process. This is also true for storing cannabis at home. However, Shatter has a better shelf life because it is protected. After all, most cannabinoids are suspended in oil and not subject to oxidization. Additionally, the terpenes and cannabinoids are not degraded alongside the live plant matter of a cannabis flower.
For our clients who live in a hot climate, we suggest you store Shatter in the fridge or freezer if you are without consistent air conditioning. It is risky to leave Shatter out, as it will degrade quickly in hot and humid environments. For those that do decide to go the fridge route, make sure to seal the Shatter because the fridge humidity can corrupt the consistency, making it sticky and hard to handle if you’re not careful!
Canadians are lucky to have such an abundance of shatter to choose from. That being said, if you are planning to buy shatter in Alberta or buy shatter in BC, ordering from Secret Smoke is a smart choice. Seeing as we ship out of BC, it makes sense logistically for Canadians in western provinces. During the winter the weather can delay your packages and being in relatively close proximity to your supplier can mean receiving your package days earlier. Furthermore, there are two classifications of mail when shipping from BC; National and Regional. Regional rates are slightly less than National and cover all of western Canada including BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, so if you are on a budget, this is going to save you a few dollars and cents. If you buy shatter in Ontario or the any of the Eastern Provinces, the upside to our service is quality, pricing and customer service. We at Secret Smoke believe in offering extremely competitive prices while holding our extraction methods to the highest standards.

My name is Dr. Armstrong and I have been practicing medicine for over 30 years. My career has taken me from synthesizing pharmaceutical drugs to my most recent post at a naturopathic Clinic. I cannot advocate or support the solicitation of cannabis sales online, however, I can speak to the legitimacy of the extraction methods used by this company.
After many live exhibitions of their extraction methods, I was particularly impressed with the process their shatter underwent. As I have signed an NDA, I cannot give away the methods in which they synthesize their products, however it is clear that the methodology their technicians use leaves a wider array of cannabinoids than conventional practices. Furthermore, the modifications they have implemented illustrated their ability to wash out more solvents than most labs thus reducing the dangers associated with burning solvents such as BHO which can create problems with the central nervous and cardiovascular system. Finally, CC extracts natural terpenes before the extraction process. This can also reduce the dangers associated with large amounts of post terpenes being heated at high levels when smoked.
The primary concern when burning shatter in parallel with terpenes is the variance of their burning temperatures. Terpenes burn at a much lower temperature creating health concerns via the high temperatures that are needed to burn shatter. Due to the high temperatures that are needed to burn this highly viscous extract, terpenes can undergo terpene thermolysis which can lead to the emission of benzyne which is a known carcinogenic compound. If dosed properly, I would always recommend eating cannabis as it creates the least amount of side effects and clinical trials have deemed it the most effective way to treat diseases. However, if you insist on smoking shatter or concentrates i would recommend companies that operate within the same lab standards of Club Canna.
Dabbing is the art of smoking shatter with the use of a dab rig featured below. This rig flash vaporizes the shatter concentrate at 400-600 degrees, allowing copious amounts of cannabinoids to enter your lungs rapidly. When comparing the average THC in a joint being around 25% while considering the burn temperature of 350 degrees, dabbing delivers more quantity and is much faster than a conventional joint. Statistically, shatter dabs are the most powerful and most common form of consuming Shatter.
Typically, when you buy shatter online, it comes in a thin mylar package much like Club Canna’s Shatter It can be a new users misconception that online dispensaries sell pre-loaded shatter rigs, as they do with distillate vape pens; however, this is not the case. Vape pens that contain distillate are small and compact and typically can be bought at a relatively low wholesale price when purchased by a merchant. Dry rig vaporizers are large, harder to ship, much more expensive, and require even more heat to vaporize the concentrate. The reason is that Shatter has a high viscosity, meaning the molecules resist deformation and burning temperatures more than distillate which burns and moves more freely. Shatter vaping rigs are most definitely for the connoisseur that likes spending money on their hobbies.

For the best results, follow these instructions:
a) Spread the Shatter evenly.
b) Break the Shatter into tiny pieces (this is easier if frozen beforehand).
c) Use a butane lighter.
d) Follow a loose 20/80 shatter to bud ratio for optimal burning.
