Marijuana Concentrates: What is ‘Badder’?

Heritage Provisioning offers all different kinds of products including marijuana concentrates. Popular concentrates include live resin, live rosin, and budder. In this post, we will be highlighting ‘badder,’ also known as ‘batter.’ 


What is ‘badder’?

Badder is a cannabis concentrate that is usually golden yellow and smooth like cake batter. However, the texture of each batch may differ based on the extraction process. Because badder is a concentrate, it is significantly more potent than flower. 


The Process of Making Cannabis Badder

Badder is made through a solvent-based extraction process. Once the terpenes and cannabinoids are removed from the plant, they are placed in a vacuum oven to remove excess solvent and sediment and winterized to sustain cooler temperatures. 

The result of this process is oil. (To make badder, the oil is whipped prior to the purification process to create the smooth texture.)


Proper Consumption

The most common way to consume badder is by smoking it, although there are different ways badder can be smoked. The first way is dabbing. This involves a dab rig and a torch. The high temperature of the torch vaporizes the badder, allowing the user to smoke it. 

According to Leafly, these are the steps of how to use a dab rig: 

  • Step 1: Turn on the torch and aim the flame directly at the bottom of the nail. Most people heat the nail until it begins to turn red hot. 
  • Step 2: Once the nail is hot, turn off the torch. It’s recommended to let quartz nails cool for about 45-60 seconds, and about 10 seconds for titanium nails. This is where a timer can come in handy. 
  • Step 3: When you have the right temp, apply the dab to the nail with your dab tool and begin inhaling slowly. Rotate the dab tool in the nail to get all of the concentrate off.
  • Step 4: Using a carb cap, cover and uncover the nail while inhaling to regulate airflow. Always cap your dabs.
  • Step 5: Exhale and enjoy!


If you have a vaporizer or a vape pen, badder can be added directly to the coils. However, this is not as effective as using a dab rig.

If you want to add a little spice to your smoking routine, badder can be added to a bowl or a joint for an extra kick:

  • Break the badder into small chunks and spread it across the existing flower. (It’s important to note that badder burns more slowly than flower, so make sure not to use too much badder.) 
  • Additionally, if the badder seeps into the rolling paper, it can cause uneven burning. Use it like a sprinkling rather than a sauce. 


Properly Storing Your Cannabis Concentrates

After the extraction and winterization process, concentrates have a pretty good shelf life. However, if badder is not properly stored, it can darken and harden when exposed to moisture, heat, and light. Aside from the texture, the aroma, taste, and potency can be affected. 

To keep badder fresh for as long as possible, keep it contained in a dark vacuum-sealed container. Keep badder in a cool dark room if it is used frequently, but it can also be stored in a fridge or freezer for long-term storage.
