A Marijuana Guide: What Is Shake

August 8, 2018 Posted by Options Cannabis Company

Shake is one of the most versatile, and favorite, by-products of the cannabis industry. A solid understanding of shake can help to enhance your experience, stretch your budget, and help you to create intensely powerful medications at a fraction of the cost. Due to its popularity, finding a consistent deal on high-quality shake can be tricky, even in Denver. Thankfully, a few local shops always seem to have more than enough on hand.

Shake consists mainly of the small bits and pieces found in the bottom of the jar that aren't large enough to be considered a bud or a nug. Shake collected during harvesting and trimming is composed of the sugary leaf tips that protrude from the bud during the growth cycle. Because of the frosted appearance, this form of trim is known as Sugar Leaf. Sugar Leaf is an excellent way for newer smokers to experience top-shelf cannabis without the sometimes-overpowering effects.

What Shake Isn’t

Shake doesn’t work very well on its own, for those with a higher tolerance or medical needs, shake may not provide an adequate experience.

Shake may contain kief, but shake is not kief. Kief refers to the powered and fine-grained resinous material that often coats the inside of the jar. While shake does indeed contain a fair bit of the sugary delight that is kief, the amount is quite minimal in comparison to other products.

Shake is not worthless! A wide variety of tinctures, topicals, and tasty treats can be created with a bit of shake. Shake can be found in a wide range of applications and comes in several levels of quality.

What is Shake used for?

Shake is one of the most versatile components of cannabis. Higher quality sugar leaf and jar trim is ideally suited for joints, spliffs, and blunts. Some of the best pre-rolls in Wheat Ridge rely on this sweet and flavorful mixture to provide a more casual experience to smokers. Because of the lower cost associated with shake, it’s much better suited for processing into oils and edibles than for smoking. Especially critical for whole-plant nutritionists and medical patients, shake is an excellent source of potent, raw cannabis.
