Definition - What does Budder mean?

Budder is a cannabis concentrate that retains excessively high levels of terpenes. The elevated terpenes help make the budder even more flavorful than other types of cannabis concentrates.

The concentrate is referred to as ‘budder’ because of its creamy yellowish consistency that is believed to resemble butter. During the process of creating the budder cannabis concentrate, the substance is whipped vigorously, which gives it the creamy appearance. Budder is believed by many to be the cleanest and most potent form of cannabis available.

MaximumYield explains Budder

The process of budder creation has taken more than a decade of research to hone. Budder research started in the late 1990s with the making of liquid cannabis honey oil. Eventually, the honey oil was refined into the production of ‘glass’ or 'shatter' (also a form of cannabis concentrates) and then into the creation of budder.

Budder is highly coveted by cannabis users because of its high concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which generally ranges from 80 to 90 per cent. In addition to the high levels of cannabinoids, tests have also shown that budder often has a purity level of 99.6 percent. It contains no toxins, molds, heavy metals, solvents, diseases, or other contaminants.

Budder also contains levels of cannabidiol and cannabinol which are believed to be medically beneficial. The cannabidiol (CBD) helps to moderate the effects of the budder’s high THC level.

Contrary to what is sounds like at first, budder does not refer to regular kitchen butter that has been infused with cannabis.
