Death Bubba Budder
weight – 1 gram per unit
Budder, a wax-concentrate variety, is becoming one of the most popular forms of concentrates around right now. Typically extracted with butane or CO2, budder is made by using a chemical solvent to “blast” through marijuana to extract the THC, which is then “purged” with heat and air pressure to remove the solvent. The same broad process is used to create shatter and crumble wax, but the results are very different.
Budder wax is made when the extracted cannabinoids begin to crystalize after being agitated during the extraction process. By purging it at a higher temperature or whipping it like a batter in the middle or at the end of purging, a shatter-like concentrate can turn into the waxy substance that many of us dab today. Delicately but intently whipping the concentrate and maintaining a specific purging process can create beautiful, fluffy varieties of budder — but it doesn’t make it more potent.
As the popularity of concentrates continues to grow, so do questions about the many forms that dabs can take. In this video, we’re taking a closer look at the three main types of concentrates — Shatter, Budder and Oil.
