What is the difference between hash oil, shatter and wax other than the consistency? First off oil, wax, & shatter are all BHO extracted and some will say none is any better than the other. Its all personal preference really. Hash oil usually comes in syringes, or cartridges for vape pens, etc. Shatter (as shown) is a clear like substance that breaks into pieces easily. Lastly wax, or some may call “budder” or “crumble”, is a flakey like substance, that is used more for bowl topping than dapping. There are many different processes that people use to make these highly potent extracts. So what is the real difference between the different types of concentrates? At the end of the day it all comes down to how you finish the filtering and purging process that leads you to either a Shatter, oil or wax.

SHATTER & OILS: Many have come to agree that shatters and oils are typically the purest and cleanest form of the highly potent concentrates. When you purge out all the chemical solvents used to extract the hash, you will likely end up with a translucent concentrate that can shatter into tiny pieces; or a translucent goopy oil used to dab or fill pens with.

WAX “CRUMBLE”: Budders are made by whipping the extract during the purging processes. During this time some hash makers whip the goopy goodness while it’s being heated. Whipping the concentrate adds air into it, making it start to froth up and become more of a solid as it starts to cool.

We have a WIDE VARIETY of concentrates at Frosted Leaf, try each type out and see what you like the best.
