Why Concentrates?

Marijuana concentrates are being used to treat a variety of complaints including anxiety, pain, and insomnia. Many medical marijuana patients find that dabbing concentrates like wax or shatter is the fastest way to gain relief from their symptoms. While the process of packing bowl after bowl in the quest to achieve an adequate high can become tedious and time-consuming, with a quick hit or two off the dab rig, you’re good to go. That quick relief comes with a price, though, and concentrates can seem a bit expensive if you’re used to buying cheap weed in Denver and getting $100 ounce deals. Luckily, there are plenty of great concentrates deals, too, if you know where to look. In fact, some of the best bargains to be found at Denver dispensaries are medical concentrates deals. Check out these latest deals that prove cheap wax and shatter in Denver is not just a myth.

Medical Concentrates Ounce deals

The Joint by Cannabis, a dispensary in Denver Highlands,  has an awesome medical concentrates deal going on right now if you’re in the position to stock up. For $350, you can get an ounce of Craft or Mahatma wax or shatter, which is about the best concentrates ounce deal Denver shoppers can hope for. Another place you can get a good concentrates ounce deal is at the southwest Denver dispensary Colorado Cannabis Connection, where medical customers receive 20% off storewide with the CannaSaver dispensary deals coupon. If you’re looking for a Denver dispensary on Kipling, Colorado Cannabis Connection is definitely worthy of a visit.

More Denver Medical Wax and Shatter Deals

This Savvy Stoner doesn’t always have the cash on hand to take advantage of a concentrate ounce deal, but I still manage to get deep discounts on cheap wax and cheap shatter even if I’m only getting a gram or two. One dispensary near Federal blvd. in Denver is High Street Growers. There, you can score a medical concentrates deal on a gram of Denver Dab Company wax or shatter for only $18, tax included. They have some of the best concentrates deals on Federal that you’re going to find. Another good one to check out is Herbal Remedies. If you haven’t yet been to Herbal Remedies, this Alameda ave. dispensary in Denver has a special discount for first-time patients, offering a gram of house wax or shatter for just $15. That’s a very low price for medical concentrates, so if you haven’t yet visited this dispensary near Lakewood, take advantage.

Vape deals, distillate deals, and other discount concentrates

Another way to score good medical deals on concentrates in Denver is to try out some of the other products like vapes and distillates. If you’re looking for deals on distillate or other vaping products, CannaSaver is the easiest way to find cheap vape pens, cheap vape cartridges, cheap distillate syringes, cheap vape pen batteries, and more from Denver dispensaries. Golden Meds Leetsdale dispensary has Sperex ½ gram distillate syringes on sale for just $25, and a 500mg Flo distillate cartridge is just $40. At Ballpark Hollistic Dispensary in downtown Denver, you can get an Evolabs deal on the Evolabs Chroma cartridge for 20% off. At RiverRock South, they have an O.Pen cartridges deal for 30% off.

La Conte’s Clone Bar North has some of the best dispensary deals Denver north has to offer. They also have a centrally located dispensary in downtown Denver.

Dab a little, save a lot

While concentrates can seem expensive upfront, a little goes an extremely long way, so you really do get your money’s worth. Especially if you take advantage of the recreational or medical concentrates deals Denver dispensaries are offering on CannaSaver, you’re really getting a bargain. If an ounce of flower ordinarily lasts you a week, with a little wax or shatter added on as a bowl topper, that same ounce will last you two weeks, so you’re really saving money in the long run. That’s how the Savvy Stoner justifies it, anyway! Now, to the dispensary!

Budder vs Shatter

Posted by CANNASaver on Thursday, 03 June 2021 in Canna Blog

Budder and shatter are both forms of cannabis concentrates. Budder and Shatter are two common concentrates, but others include live resin, wax, or sap. 

Cannabis concentrates are made by chemically extracting the beneficial cannabis compounds from the marijuana flower, like the cannabinoids and terpenes. As such, they tend to have much higher THC concentrations (anywhere from 80% to 100% THC) than traditional marijuana, which hovers around 15% to 20% THC depending on the strain. Essentially, cannabis concentrates are a pure, isolated form of all the great stuff within marijuana.

The high THC concentration also means that you have to smoke a lot less product to get the beneficial effects, which can be better for your wallet and your overall health in the long run.

Concentrate Extraction Methods

Extraction methods for cannabis concentrates vary, however they can generally be grouped into 2 major umbrellas: solvent-based and non-solvent-based.

Thinking back to high-school chemistry, a solvent is a substance or chemical that will dissolve a solid, leaving a liquid solution. In the cannabis world, common solvents used to create concentrates are butane, propane, carbon dioxide, or alcohol

On the other hand, solventless extraction techniques, of which there are many, do not rely on any solvent. As a result, the final product is extremely pure, and many users report enjoying solventless concentrates more. However, these products tend to be much more expensive, and both major extraction methods have been studied extensively to ensure they’re both safe to the user.

shatter wax

What is Shatter?

Shatter is one of the most popular forms of cannabis concentrate. It is traditionally made using butane as a solvent to separate a marijuana plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes from the actual plant. From there, the extracted chemicals are processed into a hard, brittle, amber-color material that is known as Shatter. Shatter gets its name from the fact that it is easily breakable. Shatter concentrates have extremely high THC amounts that vary depending on cannabis strains used and extraction techniques, but generally are at least 85% THC.

budder wax

What is Budder?

Budder, often also called wax, is another form of cannabis concentrate. It is also traditionally made with butane as a solvent. However, unlike Shatter, which is hard and brittle, Budder, in its final form, has a softer and creamier consistency. This means that Budder can be much easier to work with than harder forms of cannabis concentrate. However, since it's a softer material, Budder degrades more quickly and loses its potency faster than harder concentrates.

Budder vs Shatter

Similarities

Budder and Shatter share a lot of key similarities. Both are traditionally made by using butane as a solvent and therefore fall under the umbrella of being called a butane hash oil (BHO).

Additionally, both budder and shatter have extremely high THC concentrations. They also generally tend to cost the same amount and are much more cost-efficient than compared to traditional marijuana.

Right now through Cannasaver, you can get 4 grams of budder and/or shatter for only $38 at any Golden Meds dispensary in Colorado.

In comparison, to get the same amount of THC from traditional flower, you’d be looking at buying ¾ oz, which will cost close to double.

Differences

There are a few key differences when comparing budder vs. shatter.

For one, shatter is a much harder, brittle material than budder, which is traditionally softer and creamier.

Additionally, many people find shatter more visually appealing than budder, since Shatter is a shinier amber, whereas budder tends to be a duller color.

Lastly, Shatter will keep its potency longer than Budder. Since Budder is a softer material, it isn’t as stable as harder concentrates and will degrade more quickly.

Shatter can keep its potency for months and even years, whereas you will want to use your budder more quickly. 

How to Consume Budder vs. Shatter

There are a plethora of different ways that you can consume budder and shatter. A very common way is to use a dab rig or other vaporizing device.

If you prefer, you can also break off pieces of budder or shatter to put inside a joint or blunt when smoking.

Lastly, you can also use budder and shatter inside edibles, if that’s your preferred way of consuming marijuana.

Popularity

Both budder and shatter have been growing in popularity recently for a couple of reasons.

Firstly, with recreational marijuana being legalized in more states every year, the market for all things cannabis will continue to grow.

Additionally, cannabis extracts have been growing in popularity when compared to traditional marijuana. When smoked, budder and shatter have a much more muted smell than traditional marijuana, which lends well to users who prefer to partake in the comfort of their own homes.

There’s also a growing school of thought that concentrates are “healthier” than traditional flower. Not only do you have to smoke less to receive the beneficial effects, which can be good for those with sensitive lungs, but you are smoking pure THC, CBD, and terpenes.

Lastly, since concentrates are generally cheaper and keep their potency longer than traditional flower, they are a great choice for the budget-conscious cannabis user. 

Price Differences & Deals

Both budder, often also called wax, and shatter will generally cost you about the same amount.

As such, there’s no real price difference between the two, and whichever type you pick is simply down to personal preference.

Per gram, you’ll generally be looking to spend between $20 and $30, with a lower per-gram price the more you buy. Some people like budder more because it’s softer and more forgiving, whereas others may prefer shatter because of its long shelf life and beautiful amber color.

No matter whether you’re looking into trying budder or shatter out for the first time or are a seasoned user, Cannasaver has partnered with dispensaries to offer you great deals.

One deal that’s particularly great for someone just looking to get started is a $12.95 gram of either Budder or Shatter at all Pure Dispensaries in Colorado.

If you’re a more seasoned user, you might be interested in 8 grams of top-shelf wax or shatter for $99 at The Lodge Cannabis in Denver.

No matter whether you’re interested in budder, shatter, edibles, pre-rolls, or pure flower, Cannasaver is sure to offer fantastic deals for everyone.
