Green Dot Shatter
Helping Hands carries an excellent selection "concentrates" like shatter, wax, Live Resin, BHO and CO2 hash oils at both our Boulder Recreational and Medical dispensaries. We work with the best names in the business like Green Dot, TC Labs and NectarBee. We do not carry Mahatma at this time.
Please note: we do not sell concentrates in bulk - just by the gram or vial.
Many of our concentrates are processed for us directly using our own house-grown 100% naturally-grown Colorado cannabis, which means that you're receiving a product that starts out free of residual chemical fertilizers or pesticides.
In fact, we only use OMRI-listed products for our gardens, which are food grade and used in certified naturally-grown agriculture, so you're starting with a clean product. Making a concentrate with chemical-laden buds can create a toxic product you're then heating and retaining in your lungs. If there was a factory spewing chemicals next door to your house you'd protest, right? So why would you deliberately inhale - it in concentrated form?
That's part of why we (and the industry in general) are moving towards exclusively using CO2 extraction as BHO requires fossil fuel extraction, strips beneficial molecules, processing and in general creates a bigger risk than reward when you consider you've then got to spend a lot of time and energy removing the butane from the finished product. BHO is for people making shatter out of schwag in their garages (dangerous!), and we're pleased to see an elevation towards better methods and finished products.
Additionally, CO2 extraction is providing us with far cleaner product that's richer in terpines and other major cannabinoids as well as maintaining high THC levels. In fact, it's the retention of all of the cannabinoids, combined with the THC that makes for a better, more flavorful and well-rounded product overall. THC is just one part of the magic.
With THC percentages from 50% (bubble hash) to 90% (shatter), these concentrates are an extremely potent yet cost-effective way to enjoy Colorado cannabis. Beginners start with the Bubble Hash, experienced users tend to aim for the shatter.
