What is the difference between wax and shatter?
Wednesday, September 29th, 2021
Shatter and wax are the two most traditional forms of BHO (butane hash oil), and they differ in appearance and texture only. Shatter is flat and transparent, and if it’s made properly, it shatters when broken, thus the name. Wax is fluffier so you get more volume per weight, and it’s called “wax” because it looks like candle wax and has roughly the same consistency. But believe it or not, they way they make wax is by whipping shatter with a cake beater before it solidifies. A good way to think about it is that shatter is like egg whites, as where wax is like meringue.
