Undoubtedly, the contemporary cannabis scene would lose significant diversity without concentrates.
And understanding concentrates can be a little perplexing at first. There are many types, and some share strikingly similar names.
Our case today is: budder, batter, and badder.
So, is there a big difference between them?
Let’s discover everything you need to know!
What are cannabis concentrates?
Cannabis concentrates are potent extracts derived from the cannabis plant, containing high concentrations of cannabinoids and terpenes.
These extracts are produced through various methods, such as solvent-based extraction (using substances like butane or CO2) or solventless techniques like rosin pressing.
The product can take various forms, including oils, waxes, shatter, or budder, each with distinct textures and potencies.
Concentrates offer a more concentrated and often more rapid onset of the effects, making them popular among medical and recreational users seeking a more potent experience.
What is budder?
Budder is a type of cannabis concentrate, a creamy and waxy substance that is created through the extraction process of cannabinoids from the cannabis plant.
It has a high THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) content and is often used for dabbing or vaporizing. This cannabis concentrate looks and feels like butter.
What is badder?
Badder is a cannabis concentrate with a whipped consistency resembling cake batter or thick frosting.
It’s often categorized as cannabis wax, but it’s stickier and thicker than budder. Badder weed typically has a distinctive “blonde” color, ranging from light blonde to deep gold.
What is batter?
Batter is another name for badder. They’re both the same kind of cannabis concentrate; the only difference is how people and brands spell it.
If you buy batter or badder from a dispensary, you’re getting the same consistency and can use them similarly.
How is batter (or badder/budder) made?
Similar to many cannabis concentrates, badder/batter and budder are produced through the process of immersing cannabis in various solvents such as butane, CO2, isopropyl alcohol, or ice water.
The distinguishing factor for softer waxes like batter or budder lies in the immediate formation after the agitation of cannabinoids during extraction, precisely when crystallization begins. This prevents the liquid from solidifying completely, a characteristic observed in shatter production.
Among the various extraction methods, Carbon Dioxide (CO2) extraction stands out as one of the most prevalent. This method is favored for its ability to leave no residual traces, as the CO2 evaporates post-extraction.
Recognized as a particularly safe approach, CO2 extraction utilizes pressurized carbon dioxide to extract terpenes, flavonoids, and cannabinoids, creating flavorful badders and budders.
How to use batter or badder/batter?
Budder or badder, like many cannabis concentrates, is heated and inhaled either through a dab rig or by mixing it with regular flower.
Using a dab rig involves heating the concentrate on a nail and inhaling the vapors through a mouthpiece. Alternatively, you can mix badder wax concentrates with flower and smoke the mixture in a joint, bong, or pipe.
It’s important to use small amounts due to the high potency of wax, which can alter the way the flower burns. This method is a good option for those without a dab rig who want to experiment with wax concentrates.
