So before we explore why budder is the best cannabis concentrate, for those unfamiliar, what is budder and how to make budder? Budder is one of many cannabis concentrates of various consistencies and made via slightly different processes. As you might guess budder has the consistency of slightly melted but thicker than normal butter. Heavier than honeycomb concentrates but lighter than crumble and shatter, budder is definitely a favorite amongst cannabis users who like to dab, vape and can even be added to joints or a bowl. It is a completely potent versatile concentrate. At the present time budder is popular mostly with recreational users but that may soon change as more and more medical marijuana patients are seeing the benefits of budder especially if they require high potency cannabis to treat their medical condition.
How to Make Budder
Like most other cannabis concentrates, the first stage of how to make budder involves butane and CO2 to blast the cannabis flower so that cannabinoids like THC and CDB can be extracted. Next comes the process of using heat and air pressure to remove all potential harmful solvents so that at the end of this part of the process you are left with just the concentrated parts of the cannabis plant. So how to achieve that nice fluffy texture? Time and patience and a little baking experience can’t hurt. While the cannabinoids are being purged at a high temperature, you must carefully and at the right time, whip the budder like you do a cake batter. It takes some preparation to keep things at the right temperature and at the same time make sure you are whipping enough but not too much. This process takes some practice to get the consistency just right but is definitely worth the effort if you are a DIY type of cannabis user.
There are quite a number of benefits that make budder the preferred cannabis concentrate and potentially the preferred cannabis in general. The first is potency. Budder is the most potent of all forms of cannabis and if made correctly with good quality flower, you can expect a potency level of between 80-90%. That’s some powerful weed! Another obvious benefit is how clean it is when prepared correctly. Today’s marijuana is certainly cleaner in general than a decade ago but removing all harmful chemicals and potential toxins is pretty rare, even these days. Budder, again made correctly, has a purity level of over 99%, with an average of 99.6%. With that level of purity you can feel good, not to mention really stoned, that what you are consuming is just cannabis, nothing else. As most cannabis connoisseurs know, terpenes are important, very important and budder retains more terpenes than any other cannabis concentrate which equals a better taste and overall high.
Now that you know how to make budder, you can enjoy budder in basically any other way you enjoy cannabis, with the exception of edibles. Rolling that gummy in budder is not going to do you much good unless you light the gummy on fire, which would taste, well maybe someone will give it a try and report back. Putting budder in a blunt or joint is called twaxing and is one possible way you can add some budder to your flower to really enhance you high. You can also do something similar with a pipe, bong or bubbler, just add the budder in with your raw bud. Keep in mind though that the budder has a higher melting point than just flower so you need to heat it longer before taking a hit. Dabbing and vaping are arguably the best ways to enjoy the clean potency and taste of budder. Heating the budder up to the right melting point is just easier to control with a dab ring or vaporizer. That being said, everyone has their favorites and trying out different ways to experience the quality of good budder is all part of the fun of being a stoner.
