How to Smoke Shatter Safely and Effectively
Smoking shatter, also known as butane hash oil or BHO, is a popular method of consuming cannabis concentrates. Shatter is a form of cannabis extract that has a glass-like consistency and is typically amber or yellow in colour.
Here are some steps on how to smoke shatter properly:
Gather your materials: To smoke shatter, you will need a rig (a particular type of pipe or bong used for concentrates), a nail (a small metal or glass piece that attaches to the rig), a dome (a small glass piece that sits on top of the nail), a butane torch, and, of course, your shatter.
Heat the nail: Turn on your butane torch and heat the nail until it is red hot. The nail needs to be extremely hot in order to vaporize the shatter.
Place the dome over the nail: Once the nail is hot, place the dome on top of it. This will help to contain the vapour and make it easier to inhale.
Place the shatter on the nail: Take a small piece of shatter and place it on the nail. The shatter should start to vaporize almost immediately.
Inhale the vapour: Once the shatter has vaporized, inhale the vapour through the rig. You should hold the vapour in your lungs for a few seconds before exhaling.
Repeat: As the shatter vaporizes, take additional hits until you have consumed the desired amount.
It is important to be cautious when using a butane torch and to follow all safety precautions when handling it. Always use in a well-ventilated area, never near any flammable materials or open flames. Additionally, it is important to note that consuming cannabis concentrates such as shatter can produce stronger effects than smoking flower, so it is important to start with a low dosage and work your way up.
