    What Is CBD Shatter?

    Maybe you heard it from your buddies, on the streets, or in a movie about CBD shatters, and you wonder what this substance is. This article discusses more about  this compound, its methods of extraction, benefits and effects on the body.

    CBD shatter is a product made from CBD. CBD is a cannabinoid that is found in both hemp and marijuana plant. As technology progresses and innovation and evolution, plants high in CBD are produced and incorporated into products such as CBD shatter. If you want to try this product, this article is your go to guide.

    What Is CBD?

    CBD is one of the over 100+ compounds in the hemp plant. CBD is not associated with THC. According to Martinez De-Hond &Borreli(2020),  CBD has a psychoactive effect. CBD has multiple health and therapeutic benefits, which led to the legalization of hemp-derived products from the Act farm bill of 2018 that allowed the plantation and cultivation of hemp plants for industrial use; this led to the cultivation, harvesting, and production of numerous products such as CBD shatter.

    The rules regulating the use of CBD-derived products or hemp differ between states, but the rule was to enact the o.3% of the amount of THC in the products produced. Any increase in this amount may attract legal implications.

    The variation in the number of compounds in CBD products has led to categorizing the types of compounds.

    Types of CBD

    There are three distinctive types of CBD; the full -spectrum, medium-

    spectrum and CBD isolate.

    Full Spectrum

    Full-spectrum CBD concentrate refers to CBD extract with numerous compounds in the final products. These compounds include terpenes that give the hemp plant its aromatic flavor, with other compounds such as flavonoids, CBG, THC, which should be 0.3% in concentration, and cannabidiol.

    This type of concentrate rich in many compounds leads to the Entourage effect. A synergetic feeling is experienced when you ingest all the compounds. This concentrate is not advised to people new to hemp or other hemp-derived products.

    Medium Spectrum

    This concentrate is made not to have CBD. This concentrate contains all other elements such as terpenes, flavonoids, cannabinoids, and many other compounds except CBD. It is good for people who are little used to hemp-derived products since its effect is slower than its full counterpart spectrum.

    CBD Isolate

    CBD isolate. The medium spectrum has minimal THC. Isolate CBD has high potency. The filtration process is used to obtain pure amounts of CBD. Isolate is preferred by people who want to achieve all other benefits from ingesting CBD without getting the high effect associated with THC.

    It is important to note that CBD shatter contains a high amount of CBD, making it fall under the category of CBD isolate.

    How to Use CBD Shatter

    CBD shatter is made from CBD, but its shatter name is due to its texture, nature, and appearance. It is an amber-like yellowish substance that has a glassy appearance. It can break when accustomed to sheer pressure, hence shattering the name. When heated, It takes the form of liquid honey, which emits smoke.

    Smoke emitted after heating CBD shatter is inhaled to get the effects; this process is known as vaping and is common to teens who use CBD. Vaping is one of the methods which, when used, the CBD kicks In very fast, and the effects are felt much faster. Since the product has a high concentration of CBD, vaped smoke contains amounts that estimate 60-70% in potency. This means the bioavailability of the substance is very high; hence the facts are much greater.

    Bioavailability refers to how fast the products can be taken to the body. That is how it can get easily into the bloodstream. The bioavailability of CBD is high with high potency; hence its effect is faster felt. Other products whose bioavailability is high include CBD tinctures and oil produced from CBD; they are applied sublingually, which means it is placed on the undersurface of the tongue where the skin surface to the bloodstream is thin. There are numoriues capilariries.

    The skin makes it enter the bloodstream faster.

    Effect of CBD Shatter

    When taken into the body, the CD combines with CB1 receptors. This receptor and the CB2 form a web-like structure known as the endocannabinoid system. The system is responsible for maintaining body homeostasis. Hence crucial in the study of the effect of CBD.

    CBD Has Pain Relief

    Pain in the muscles is due to increase stress on the muscles fibers; this can be due to long exercise, fracture, or injury. CBD can reduce stress in muscles, which may cause pain and discomfort. CBD has also shown its capability to activate cells that aid in growth. This helps in the repair of fractured fibers in the skin muscles. Eskaander et al. (2020) suggested that the CBD cream's transdermal application provides pain relief to the skin.

    CBD Shatter as an Anti-Inflammation

    Inflation and other skin condition can be traumatizing sometimes. You should worry no more if you suffer from inflammation. A component of CBD shatters the muscles, causing them to relax. This intern reduces the inflammation on the skin surface, leading to a healthy body. Atalay et al.  (2020) showed how CBD reduces anti-inflammation of the skin cells.

    CBD Reduces Anxiety and Improves Sleep

    You can occasionally be cloud minded about life's hurdles and what life offers—this increase the stress level and the overall effect of anxiety. Cbd use has shown that the CBD compounds aid in the section of serotonin. Since the balance of the two is responsible for sleep, homeostasis is reached, which leads to a relaxed mind. With a relaxed mind, you can have quality and improved sleep patterns.


    CBD shatter, which goes by the street name HBO, has recently gone viral in its use. In its amber-yellow color, the substance is used for its various benefits, such as reduced stress levels and improved sleep and anti-inflammation properties. However, further research on the benefits of these products is necessary. As discussed,  CBD shatter comes in different formmulations, including full spectrum, broad spectrum, and isolates. When choosing a CBD shatter, look at the manufacturing process, extraction method, necessary testing, and go for a highly reputable brand.
