A Guide To Delta 8 Concentrates: Shatter Vs Diamonds

Do Delta 8 concentrates work the same as Delta 9 concentrates?

Dabbing is the instant vaporization of concentrates at high temperatures and is done through a dab rig, e-rig, or dab pen.

Concentrates – as the name implies – are concentrated forms of cannabis, so even a little bit is quite potent. For example, a flower has between 15-25% THC, while dabs have between 60-90% THC or, in some cases even more.

The concentrates are so pure and effective that they have become quite popular among cannabis users. Especially those that include Delta 8, famous for its calming and therapeutic effects. 

What you put in your body is important. Therefore high concentration is only one factor. Concentrates should be purchased from reliable companies that have been strictly tested and reviewed.

What Is Delta 8 Shatter

Delta 8 Shatter is a product for avid smokers. This shatter is absolutely delicious and will give you a smooth but potent high.

Delta 8 Shatter is an excellent choice for those who want the purest and most potent form of Delta 8 THC available.

 

Key Differences

While both products are cannabis concentrates, they have some differences between them that are important to consider when making your choice.

Consistency

Diamond Sauce are sticky crystals that can be somewhat wax-like. While the Delta 8 Shatter has a consistency more similar to a piece of glass or plastic that can be easily fragmented. 

Diamond Sauce is similar to beeswax and could crystallize like beeswax due to its sticky structure. 

Potency

Diamond Sauce is basically a mixture containing pure THC, with a special blend of flavonoids. Due to this somewhat unstable mixture, it has a potent and pungent taste. It is also considered a product with a high potency due to its THC concentration. 

The Diamond Sauce is characterized by its incredible flavor. Some say that it is not achieved with any other product. Also, due to its high concentration of cannabinoids, it has a potent smell.

Delta 8 Shatter has excellent stability, made with a special blend of cannabinoids and flavonoids. It might be a little less potent than Diamond Sauce, but being a cannabis concentrate, you will still get a powerful high with all its effects. 

They are different types of concentrates, with the difference being that Diamonds Sauce is a bit more potent than Delta 8 Shatter, but both will give you powerful highs. 

How To Smoke

Both products are cannabis concentrates that are consumed similarly. It should be considered that when dabbing, you should start slow and start small. Each body is different and interacts differently with the consumption of cannabis in all its forms. 

Dabbing with any of these concentrates should be done:

Light the blow torch and aim the flame directly at the bottom of the nail. Once the nail is hot, turn off the torch and let the nail cool. When you have the right temperature, apply a small amount of the concentrate to the nail with your dab tool and begin to inhale slowly.

Twist the dab tool on the nail to get all the concentrate out. With a carb cap, cover and uncover the nail as you inhale to regulate the airflow. Always cap your concentrates. Exhale and enjoy.

Which One Is Best?

Like everything in the world of cannabis, it depends on each person’s preferences and tolerance to each compound.

It should be considered that Diamond Sauce is much more potent than Delta 8 Shatter; it also has a much more potent flavor and odor profile due to the concentration of THC and other cannabinoids and flavonoids due to the volatile nature of the extract.

Delta 8 Shatter is a much more stable compound with a shattering flavor and an equally potent concentration that will give you a unique dabbing experience. 

With Diamond Sauce, it is possible to enjoy further the flavors of each strain and the blend of terpenes, which is not appreciated in the same way with any other product. Delta 8 Shatter also allows you to enjoy the unique flavors of its strains, but with the characteristic flavor of shattering.

With neither of the two concentrates is needed much quantity because the crystals are pretty concentrated with THC, and in little quantity, they provide the expected effects and more.
