What is Budder oil?
Budder oil, The appearance ranges from a greenish-brown to a buttery gold. Badders and budders produced from high-quality cannabis are bright blond and express potent-but-smooth flavors. People choose to dab budder to taste emphasized terpene flavors and for potency.
Amid the flock of concentrates, how do we decipher badders, batters and budders from the bunch? The difference between badder and batter is simple: spelling and the manufacturer’s personal preference. Whether one chooses to spell it “badder” or “batter” is very subjective.
While some processors have been able to make these textures out of solventless rosin, most Badders/Batters and Budders are extracts made with the use of solvents. Budder retains a smooth, creamy butter consistency, while badder maintains a slightly different consistency. Budder concentrates can be made using trim, cured nugs, or a freshly harvested plant. Both concentrates undergo nearly identical extraction processes that often result in a soft texture with a wet terpene-gloss.
When was it first available to consumers?
Budder emerged onto the scene in the mid-’90s after its creation by a Canadian concentrate maker known as BudderKing. In 2003, BudderKing approached the founder of Vancouver’s Da Kine Smoke and Beverage Shop, Don Briere, with the budder extract and began distributing samples of budder from Da Kine called “Butter Hoots.”
After police shut down Da Kine, the demand for budder grew. Shortly after, extract artists began whipping and selling branded wholesale batches of budder concentrates.
BudderKing’s founder decided it was time to patent the name and went to the Canadian Trademark office. They denied his request to trademark the word “butter” until a family member suggested calling the product “budder.” He initially did not care to replace the traditional spelling of the word but eventually gave in. The name and product took off. From dispensary to dispensary, everyone knew the BudderKing name.
As with other textures, the process involves utilizing a closed loop system, but with a different post-extraction technique.
The consistency of the concentrate changes from Shatter to Budder by whipping the extracts on a hot plate at roughly 100 degrees Fahrenheit, or 37.78 degrees Celsius, before placing it into the vacuum oven.
Solvents can be flammable and their handling can be explosive, and may cause skin irritations.
