This is about five times as potent as unrefined cannabis flower in which the THC content rarely exceeds 30 percent. As with most concentrates, however, the exact potency level varies from strain to strain.

There are quite a few notable benefits to consuming shatter over other forms of cannabis. Shatter allows cannabinoids to enter the bloodstream very quickly, resulting in an almost instantaneous onset of effects. Like all concentrates, smoking shatter prevents the need to inhale large amounts of burning plant material, and this reduces your lungs’ exposure to harmful chemicals. In addition, shatter’s brittle nature makes it much easier to handle than sticky waxes or oils. Shatter also has a longer and more stable shelf life compared to other concentrates.
More specifically, Bruce Banner Shatter is a strain that offers a broad range of therapeutic benefits. The mild body high offers effective pain relief, especially when combating migraines or inflammation related to arthritis. The mental high is great for lowering anxiety and stress levels as well as alleviating attention and certain mood disorders. Bruce Banner has also shown to help treat nausea, fatigue, and even stimulate appetite.
How to Take Shatter
There are a multitude of ways to consume Bruce Banner Shatter, making it a viable option for all types of cannabis consumers. The most common method, known as “dabbing”, requires the use of a specialized water pipe called a dab rig. This process involves breaking off a small piece of shatter and placing it on a metal tool (the “dabber”). The next step is to use a blowtorch to heat up the nail, the heating element of the dab rig. Once the nail is heated, the dabber holding the shatter is swirled around the inside of the nail. This melts the shatter and creates a vapor which you can inhale through the rig’s mouthpiece.
You can also smoke shatter without a dab rig by crumbling and sprinkling it on top of flower in a joint or bowl. Interestingly, this method can actually enhance the potency and effects of your unrefined flower.
Bruce Banner Shatter is even suitable for those who wish to avoid inhalation entirely. Unlike many other concentrates, shatter melts easily into a liquid form. You can then add this liquid into a baking recipe to create a delicious and highly potent edible.
Unfortunately, there is no universal dosage guide that suits everyone’s consumption habits, and different people can require very different doses. Calculating an ideal dosage depends on factors such as weight, health, body chemistry, mood, and desired level of effects. For example, a patient treating chronic pain will require a higher dosage than someone trying shatter for the first time. The recommended starting dose is 10mg THC to gauge effects. First-timers should start with the lowest possible dose and slowly increase until you find the dosage that works for you.
Just like its superhero namesake, Bruce Banner Shatter is the perfect product to swoop in and save the day. Whether you’re using it to alleviate symptoms or simply boost your mood, this strain will easily leave you feeling like Betty Ross!
