Master Kush Ultra Shatter by The Healing Co.

Indoor growing is facilitated by the plant’s short stature, and its above average yield delivers particularly sticky, dense, pungent flowers. MK Ultra is renowned for its ‘hypnotic’ effects that are fast-acting and best used when strong medication is desired. As evidenced by its collection of awards, this indica is one of the strongest in the world. It might be best for a day when not getting off the couch would be fine.

CANNABIS SHATTER, Master Kush Ultra Shatter by The Healing Co
Shatter appears to be more brittle and clear and almost glass-like in appearance. It looks like a very thick honey with some degree of transparency and colour. However, when warmed up it has a consistency similar to a thick honey but when it is cold, its consistency changes to resemble that of a glass and as such, it got the name “shatter” because it looks like a thin piece of glass or ice that can be shattered. Shatter is most often made using a Rosin Press.
Among all cannabis concentrate, Shatter and cannabis oil are most similar, they are both made by butane though shatter is more refined and this makes it to be more potent than cannabis oils with about 90% THC extracted from the plant. Another advantage shatter has over other concentrates is that it can last longer and it’s more stable.
More so, the extraction process is more like that of wax but unlike wax, shatters are not “whipped”. Its extracts harden into a tiny cake which is then broken into smaller fragments. It can also be consumed by using a glass with a nail attachment where it is broken into a much smaller piece and placed on a heated pen like wax.
