Crumble is a reasonably priced concentrate which is often cheaper than other consistencies. It’s low price is likely because crumble is harder to handle than some other consistencies, such as taffy. As with all concentrates, proper storage is crucial to maintain the potency and flavor of crumble, and exposure to light, heat, oxygen, and moisture will speed up the degradation process.
How is crumble made?
Making crumble is similar to making shatter except crumble needs lower heat for a longer period of time in a vacuum oven. The longer cooking time creates one of the driest forms of cannabis concentrate, giving it a low risk for mold contamination. Some extract artists will also whip it up under slight heat before placing it in a vacuum oven to encourage it to become a crumble, rather than a shatter.
How to smoke crumble?
You can consume crumble in a plethora of different ways – feel free to experiment. However, there are some basics which we’ll cover in-depth below:
Joint – because of its crumbly texture, it is easy to burn when you roll it inside of a joint. Or if you prefer, you can sprinkle some on top to increase the bud effects.
Vape – If you have a vape or a vape pen with concentrate chambers, then you’ll be able to vape your crumble as well. Just put the crumble inside the chamber and heat it.
Dab Rig – Our preferred way of consuming crumble is through a dab rig. Dab is similar to a bong, but it was designed specifically for concentrates. Put some crumble on the nail, heat it, and inhale it through the rig.
Edibles – Lastly, because their texture is so unique, they can be a great addition to any marijuana edibles recipe.
