Wax Vs Shatter Vs Crumble – Which Is Best?

Wax Vs Shatter Vs Crumble Cannabis Concentrates

A cannabis concentrate is a highly concentrated form of cannabis that is the best way to ingest very high levels of THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) or CBD (cannabidiol). There are three primary types of cannabis concentrate to choose from, and it is up to you to determine whether wax, shatter, or crumble is best for your specific needs. Below, you can learn more about the differences between wax, shatter, and crumble, and hopefully, it will help you make an informed decision.

What is Cannabis Wax?

Cannabis wax is a highly concentrated form of marijuana, with the average cannabis wax containing up to 90% THC. The resulting wax is nearly entirely THC, and users should exhibit caution. It has a sticky, wax-like consistency, and users will get high almost immediately. The most common way to ingest cannabis wax is either by “dabbing” the wax or vaping it.

What is Cannabis Shatter?

Cannabis shatter is a clear and solid cannabis concentrate that almost looks like glass. Shatter typically features between 80% and 90% THC, and is typically consumed by dabbing it or vaping it. While it is typically very potent, the strength of shatter can vary greatly, depending on how it was made and the potency of the strain involved.

What is Cannabis Crumble?

Cannabis crumble’s name gives away its consistency, as this extract can be very crumbly and dry to the touch. It is also often called “honeycomb” because crumble bears a resemblance to honeycomb. Crumble also has up to 90% potency and is usually very pale and yellow in color. Crumble is the cheapest of all the cannabis concentrates, making it very profitable for those trying to save a buck. 

Which Cannabis Concentrate is Best for You?

Each individual may have a different preference when it comes to choosing between wax, shatter, and crumble. Below are a few of the things to consider.


Most people feel that wax is the best tasting cannabis concentrate, so if the taste is very important, you might want to go with wax.


Crumble and wax are the two most potent types of concentrate, with up to 90% THC. If you want to get the strongest possible concentrate, you want to go with crumble or wax.

Ease of Use

Cannabis crumble is the most difficult to deal with because of its strange consistency and crumbling nature. Wax and shatter are more stable and can be easily dabbed or vaped.


Crumble is the cheapest cannabis concentrate, so if the price is the most important thing to you, then you likely want to opt for crumble.
