Lab-tested to contain 78.43 % THC, 0.38% CBD

Black Lotus Shatter is an extract made from the cannabis plant that yields very high levels of THC, often 70-95%. CBD levels are much lower, and the result is often psychedelic with only a dose the size of a grain of rice.

Concentrates refer to the product of a cannabinoid extraction process that often uses a solvent (H2O, C2O, butane, alcohol, etc). The goal of concentrates is to eliminate all plant matter and extract the resin glands from the plant matter. Concentrates are made by mixing the plant matter with a solvent then strained or purged to remove plant matter and any remaining solvents from the product.

So, What is Distillate?

One of the most commonly made types of cannabis oils is distillate. Distillate can be vaporized, dabbed, or used in edibles/topicals.

Distillate is a sappy, translucent oil that is devoid of waxes/undesirable compounds from the original marijuana plant.

The final product has been systematically stripped of all plant materials except for one specific cannabinoid; either THC or CBD. In our case, we will look at THC distillate.

The outcome of THC distillate is extremely potent but typically lacks naturally occurring terpenes. Sometimes terpenes or other flavors are put back into the distillate.

The drawback of this technique is the possible lack of therapeutic benefits associated with terpenes which affect the overall entourage effect.

But does it get you high?

Well, that depends on the cannabinoid used in the specific distillate produced – whether it is THC or CBD. This matters big time.

THC distillate is likely to get you extremely high where CBD distillate is pretty strictly a therapeutic or medicinal use product. THC distillate is known to produce an incredibly clean high.

How THC Distillate is Made

Marijuana distillate is made through the actual process of distillation, think the way whiskey or moonshine is made. For cannabis, distillation is achieved through processes such as fractional distillation, short-path distillation, and other methods.

It begins as crude cannabis oil (plant material still present) and is purified through two main factors.

Winterization of Distillate

Winterization is a method to purify crude oil extract products. These products include plant waxes, chlorophyll, fats, lipids, etc. The crude marijuana oil is mixed with ethanol or alcohol. The mixture is then placed in a frozen environment for 1-2 days. When the distillate mixture is removed, impurities from the crude oil are separated and fall to the bottom by using colder temperatures.

After being taken out of the freezing cold, it is passed through a filter. At the end of filtering the mixture, ethanol is removed entirely by using techniques such as rotary evaporation or falling-film evaporation.

When winterization is complete, we move to the next big step needed for distillation; decarboxylation.

Decarboxylation of Distillate

Decarboxylation is the process of removing carboxylic acid found in the amino acids and fatty acids within the plant. The removal process occurs when the heat is applied, heated to the point which eliminates the acid.

In other words, such heat allows the cannabis compounds such as THCa to change into 100% THC. THCa alone does not get you high until the actual decarboxylation occurs, activating the THC. The process helps cannabinoids interact and hit correct brain receptors in your body.
