Vesta CBD crafts a wide variety of THC Free CBD Shatter, including minor cannabinoids like CBT (Cannabicitran) , CBG (Cannabigerol) , CBN (Cannabinol) and others. We use some of the only Certified Organic Naturally Derived Botanical Terpenes, mainly derived from fruits and plants, no industrial materials. We also use Live Cannabis Derived Terpenes (CDT's) in some products. We're real cannabis enthusiasts who personally use CBD Shatter to create synergistic effects with our medical cannabinoid consumption, but sometimes you just want a tasty CBD Shatter dab without getting high. Our blends are perfect for the dabbing expert. Low temp to taste our terpenes to their fullest, or go a little hotter for some full & fast effects (not too hot, though!)

What is CBD Shatter? How can I use it?
We've got you covered
CBD Shatter is more often than not, pure CBD Isolate that goes through a process in which it is manipulated by heat, pressure and or agitation. Most CBD shatter on the market has added botanical terpenes to add a more natural and pleasant experience for consumers. Terpenes are also known to have many therapeutic benefits, as well as being used for giving CBD shatter a flavor profile. These flavor profiles can mimic real strains or even fruits.
At Vesta, we use both botanical terpene blends and terpenes extracted from real cannabis plants for a true terpene profile.
CBD shatter usually starts off as powdered CBD isolate and is heated up in batches until it liquifies to a consistency of a syrup or distillate. At this stage, terpenes are mixed in and homogenized throughout the batch. Heat is suspended and the CBD begins to naturally crash back together into it’s crystalline structure as it cools. Some techniques including “seeding” which is sprinkling powdered CBD isolate on top of the liquid batch so it begins nucleating faster and seeding to the added CBD isolate.
CBD shatter, as you can tell by the name, takes on the appearance of shattered glass. Though this term was more attributed to THC products, the consistency in which CBD shatter breaks apart and has a harder structure than other forms of concentrates, this term made the most sense for the industry.

The best part about CBD shatter, in my opinion, is how versatile and covenient it is. For seasoned users, you can use CBD shatter in joints and bowls, dab it with a standard rig or E-Rig, etc. You can also add it to certain food and beverages (you need to use a carrier in some instances, we’ll tell you how!) for a truly unique experience. We compiled a small list of the many ways to use CBD shatter. If you have any unique ideas, comment them below!
- Sprinkle in a joint
- Put pieces on top of a bowl
- Dab Rig/Vaporizer
- Alcoholic Beverages
- Pasta/Cooked meals
If you’re already invested into dabbing, you probably already know the deal. We recommend trying a temp around 460-520F. CBD does melt at a slightly higher temp than THC, the main issue is terpene preservation and finding a balance between CBD uptake and terpene retention. This is why E-Rigs usually offer a better experience with CBD dabs, as they can be fine tuned per strain.
You CANNOT use CBD shatter in water or primarily water based drinks. This is because pure CBD isolate is not water soluble without additional processes or ingredients. For this reason, we’re sticking strictly to the easy ones you can do at home, without lab equipment like Ultrasonic Homogenizers (need I say more?)
Yes! since CBD shatter is the purest form of CBD, it is already activated. Compared to making homemade edibles with marijuana, you don’t have to preheat anything to activate or decarboxylate. We only heat up the CBD shatter to mix it with a carrier ingredient to make it easier to work with and produce a smooth product. CBD isolate is very grainy, so feeling it in between your teeth is not pleasant.
For snacks and pastries that will be heated in an oven to 350, you can pulverize your CBD shatter back into isolate and sprinkle it into your batter mixture. The heat of the oven should evenly melt the isolate throughout your final product. You can slowly bring CBD shatter up to a low cooking temp and it will melt into your mixture. For candy like chocolate, we suggest using a CBD distillate. We’ll be covering more in depth CBD cooking recipes in our blog .
