Jet Fuel Shatter
Jet Fuel Strain
Also commonly referred to as “G6”, Jet Fuel Shatter is a hybrid cross between Aspen OG and High Country Diesel. This strain originates in Colorado and can be recognized by its light and fluffy nugs that produce a super sticky resin. In addition to its fast-paced sativa high, Jet Fuel is also named for its extremely fragrant sweet gasoline aroma. Cannabis lovers everywhere praise this strain for its incredibly smooth smoke and delightfully skunky aftertaste.
Jet Fuel Shatter Potency
Shatter is an especially potent form of concentrate, with a THC content ranging anywhere from 70-90 percent. 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.
With a THC content ranging from 15-20 percent, Jet Fuel holds a relatively average potency level. This makes it an ideal strain for newcomers or people with lower tolerances.
Jet Fuel Shatter Effects
While Jet Fuel does offer some slight physical sensations, the effects of this strain exist primarily in the head. Users will experience an initial surge of energy and euphoria followed by a mild, tingly relaxation in the spine. Jet Fuel’s intense cerebral effects promote creativity and problem solving, and are occasionally accompanied by a case of the munchies. Best suited for daytime use, this strain is also great for socializing by helping conversation flow freely and openly. After a few hours, Jet Fuel eventually settles users into a pleasant, dream-like mental state that’s perfect for unwinding.
Jet Fuel Shatter Benefits
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.
Jet Fuel, in particular, is strongest in terms of its psychological benefits. The euphoric mental effects of this strain greatly helps those with stress and anxiety live more in the moment. Jet Fuel also enhances focus in those with certain attention disorders. This strain helps with fatigue and depression, proving to be especially beneficial for relieving symptoms of PTSD. Despite having mild physical effects, Jet Fuel is a surprisingly effective treatment for migraines and tension headaches.
How to Take Shatter
There are a multitude of ways to consume 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.
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.
Regardless of why you use it, Jet Fuel Shatter is a fantastic way to improve your overall health and wellness. This strain is suited for consumers of all experience levels, making it a great choice for a wake and bake session with friends. Try some today, and we promise you’ll be blasting off in no time!
