Cannabis Sugar

Commonwealth Alternative Care, Taunton Massachusetts has Sugar available in house, daily! Sugar is a term used for concentrates with a slightly grainy consistency, similar to that of wet sugar. Sugar can be intentionally made or develop naturally over time. When the lipids in a stable concentrate like shatter cannot homogenize entirely with the cannabinoids like they did during the extraction process, the glass-like shatter turns a sugary consistency. The trichomes want to return to their natural state, resulting in crystallization. This process is called “nucleation” or “auto-buddering”. Sugar maintains the same potency of the original concentrate with a richer flavor profile.
