What Does Budder Mean?

Budder is a slang term that is used to describe the texture or appearance of some cannabis extracts.

An extract 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 extract, the substance is whipped vigorously, which gives it the creamy appearance.

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


Maximum Yield 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' and then into the creation of budder.

Extracts used to make budder are highly coveted by cannabis users because of their 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.

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.
