Potluck Budder –
Cannabis concentrates come in several forms. One of those forms is cannabis wax, and even cannabis wax comes in several forms. Based on the various consistencies of wax, it could be argued that Budder is one of the more favourable forms of wax. Budder is somewhere between a solid and a liquid. Not as runny as oil, but not as solid as shatter. By agitating cannabis wax, crystallization takes place that results in a non-transparent paste. Budder forms as residual solvents are removed. The consistency becomes somewhat like cake frosting. Harder forms of this substance are referred to as honeycomb or crumble. Budder is creamier than crumble, honeycomb, or shatter. Budder is made by dousing weed into butane, CO2, or another chemical solvent. It purges out all the plant material so that only the cannabis extract is left. Budder refers to any cannabis concentrate with a creamy quality in its consistency. If the consistency is more like cheese, then it can be referred to as crumble.
What Is Budder?
Budder are typically considered extracts because they are primarily made using liquid petroleum gases (LPG) such as butane and propane. As with other textures, the process involves a closed-loop system. The only difference is the post-extraction technique.
The consistency of the concentrate changes from shatter to budder when the extracts are whipped on a hot plate at roughly 100 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius) before being placed into a vacuum oven. The exact temperatures and amount of agitation required differ from strain to strain, but most budder is purged with a little heat and pressure for 24 to 72 hours.
How to dab budder and other cannabis concentrates?
Dabbing is by far the most popular way to consume concentrates and extracts. Because concentrates are more potent than flower, dabbing is known for producing a much stronger range of effects. Additionally, because dabbing uses high temperatures to vaporize cannabis rather than burning it, the flavors and aromas you get from this method tend to be much cleaner and more robust.
How to store budder?
Bottom line: Store your budder in a cool, dark place in an airtight container.
