What is shatter?
Shatter is a cannabis concentrate that is named for its hard, glass-like consistency that tends to crack or shatter when broken apart. It is typically gold or amber in colour. Like other cannabis concentrates, shatter is a favourite among dabbing enthusiasts. It is usually dabbed, a method of consumption that involves flash vaporization off of a specialized water pipe called a dab rig. This glassy extract has a reputation for being potent, while the high watermark for cannabis flower tends to sit around 30% THC, shatter extracts may test upward of 80% to 90% THC.

About this Strain:
Sweet Island Skunk – This heady skunk is a Canadian original, grown for decades on Vancouver Island in British Columbia. With top THC levels of 19%, it’s a potent tool for treating low moods. Island Sweet Skunk smells and tastes exactly as its name implies: sweet and skunky. It also delivers aromatic hints of the tropics. This strain, which won a Canadian award at the High Times Cannabis Cup, is a sativa-dominant hybrid of original Skunk #1, a local California strain known as Sweet Skunk, and an unknown sativa. The sativa/indica ratio is 80:20. This strain is useful in relieving anxiety, depression, nausea, and pain. It can also help with nerve pain, migraines, arthritis, and GI disorders. Dry mouth is very common, but other adverse effects are limited. 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.
