This product is ideal for use with dab rigs that require some easy control over the product when putting it in the dab rig. Shatter can be easily broken up and spooned into a dab rig.
Crumble is very dry and crumbly, hence its name. Crumble is produced through hydrocarbon extraction, it can be highly potent and flavorful.
This product is ideal for use with dab rigs that require some easy control over the product when adding it to the dab rig. Crumble can be easily spooned into most rigs.
Snap and pull and snap be handled by hand and is similar to taffy. Pull & Snap is often a product of hydrocarbon extraction.
Pull & Snap is ideal for beginners who want a concentrate that’s clean, easy to handle by hand, and will work well in all types of dab rigs.
Sticky cannabis concentrates can be a bit more difficult to work with and are most typically used in tabletop dab rigs. They are most often tacky to the touch and will stick to the dab spoon.
Sap often has the consistency of chocolate and can be very difficult to work with and will melt at body temperature.
Wax best used with a dab rid that does not have an enclosed heating element. Dab rigs with a small opening in which to place the concentrate may prove messy for novices. Tabletop dab rigs are often the best match for sap.

Budder has a similar consistency to butter, which is where it gets its name. Budder is the cleanest concentrate because of the whipping under heat it receives at the end of its process. This whipping process purges all remaining solvents regardless of the type of solvent. Budder is often the product of hydrocarbon extraction.
Budder’s consistency makes it easy to work with and works well in all types of dab rigs.
