Smoking weed the traditional way is still a fantastic way to get high or see medical benefits, but the cannabis industry is shifting and concentrates are becoming a favorite among customers, especially badder. With this increased popularity, badder concentrate has taken center stage. You’ve probably already heard of badder, batter, or budder (which are each fairly similar to each other), but you might not know what it is, how it’s made, or how to use it.
That’s why we’re here to tell you everything you need to know about badder, so you can come away informed and excited to grab some of this incredible cannabis concentrate and try it for yourself.
What is Badder?
First things first, what are people talking about when they refer to badder? It’s a cannabis concentrate that resembles cake batter in its consistency, meaning it’s somewhat loose, waxy, and sticky. Because of the process used to create extracts, not all badders are exactly the same and some may sport a more wet texture, while others may be a little more firm. Batter is another name for this concentrate and the terms are used interchangeably.
Budder can come in colors ranging from light blond to brown or green, depending on the strain used to produce the concentrate. It is often described as very flavorful and potent, due to its high THC content. And, thanks to its malleable texture, budder can be consumed using a variety of methods, including dabbing or incorporating it into your joints, but we’ll get into the techniques in more detail later on.
How is Badder Made?
Before getting into how badder is made, the most important thing you need to know is that you should not make your own badder. The process involves flammable and explosive materials that are dangerous and life-threatening in inexperienced and unlicensed hands. Additionally, full removal of the flammable materials is needed before using the concentrate, which can be difficult to judge if you aren’t an expert. If you’re interested in trying badder wax, visit your local dispensary as they’ll have plenty of excellent products to select from.
With that said, badder is made using chemical solvents, such as propane or butane. The first step is what’s called extraction, where the weed is soaked in the chemicals until the active ingredients in the plant are extracted from the plant and mixed in with the solvent. Heat and pressure are used in a closed-loop system, which purges the mixture as it’s stirred. Regular, consistent whipping is needed to achieve the creamy, cake batter-like texture you see in the finished product.
Are Badder and Budder the Same Thing?
Yes and no. Comparing badder vs budder is sort of like comparing scrambled eggs to an omelet. They’re extremely similar, but there’s a different method used when making them, which produces a different texture. Both badder and budder are made using the extraction process and require a combination of heat and pressure, whereas budder is typically more firm and less oily than badder, aptly named for its similarity to butter.
Otherwise, badder and budder are both very potent, offer incredible flavors, and can be consumed using the same methods. If you’ve found yourself with budder instead of badder, don’t worry — you can still enjoy it using the below techniques.
How to Use Badder?
There are several ways you can use badder, meaning you can try them all and find the method that works best for you. Some require more equipment than others, so before getting started, make sure you have everything you need.
A dab is the most popular way to consume cannabis concentrates, especially batter. This is because all you need is a dab rig, a torch (a very hot lighter), and a dab tool to safely place your batter on the hot nail.
- Using your dab tool, pick up a small amount of budder. If this is your first time dabbing, it’s always best to start slow, as concentrates are much more potent than flower.
- Heat the nail on your rig with your torch to reach the desired temperature. Everyone has their own preference, but 300 — 400 degrees Fahrenheit is the general consensus, to avoid burning off the incredible flavors. (Try heating for 20 or 30 seconds and then giving it a few moments to cool.)
- Place your badder on the nail, turning your dab tool as you do so to remove all of the product. As it vaporizes, inhale through the mouthpiece.
- Exhale, sit back, and relax for a while before deciding whether you want to try again. Similarly to smoking weed, you should feel the effects pretty quickly but it’s best to test out your tolerance level to avoid getting too high.
Vaping your budder is another great way to enjoy the concentrate without sacrificing flavor and preserving the active ingredients. Vaping has become incredibly popular due to its convenience and discretion. All you’ll need is a concentrate e-pen or vaporizer to get started, but double check your manufacturer’s guide to make sure the thick consistency of badder can be tolerated by your device.
- Always begin with a clean, cooled e-pen. To get started, heat your vaporizer to the desired temperature.
- Fill the tank with your batter. You will likely want to use a tool to do this, to avoid making a mess or dropping any of your concentrate.
- Some vaporizers require you to hold a button down, while others can just be puffed on immediately. Follow your manufacturer’s guide instructions for the best results.
- Inhale the vapor and exhale. That’s all there is to it!
Sprinkle it in Your Flower
If you’re a joint-rolling connoisseur, or just prefer the act of smoking from a bong or pipe, you can still use badder. The only thing to keep in mind with this method is that concentrates take longer to burn, so you’ll need to be patient with this process. Additionally, prepare for stronger effects than you’re used to, due to badder’s high THC content.
- Prepare your joint or bowl as you normally would, by sprinkling in ground flower.
- Using your dabbing tool, break up small, consistent pieces of badder.
- Spread this evenly throughout your flower. If you’re using a joint, try not to let it come into contact with the paper too much, as this can cause it to burn unevenly.
- If using a joint, simply light up and enjoy. If you’re using a pipe or bong, heat your bowl for a few seconds longer and wait for the badder to vaporize before taking a hit.
