The reason our shatter comes out so transparent has to do with the molecules which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance. Heat, moisture, strain, cannabinoid and high terpene content will affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap”). Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap.”
CBG, also known as, cannabigerol, is what we can refer to as the “mother” cannabinoid, because CBG is actually found in the baseline of most cannabinoids. However, she is still considered a minor cannabinoid because most mature plants will only have trace amounts. Just like how THC reacts, CBG will latch onto the CB1 and CB2 receptors in your brain, but can actually be considered more of a “buffer” to the psychoactivity in the THC. In other words, it will provide the similar medicinal benefits that THC offers, but will not get you “high.”
Our Delta 8 THC tincture contains a distillate hemp extract with Delta 8 THC, and terpenes that help with effectiveness. MCT is the carrier oil. Delta 8 is a powerful cousin to the infamous Delta 9, found in smaller compounds unlike Delta 9. It’s chemically different from THC by only a few atomic bonds. There’s currently no such thing as delta-8-THC-rich strains, as the cannabinoid is produced naturally in very small amounts.
