Pull and snap
“Pull ‘n’ snap is just as potent as shatter but easier to work with.”
What is pull and snap?
Pull ‘n’ snap is a cannabis concentrate. It is created using a chemical solvent such as butane or propane in a closed-loop system. This is to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from plant material. After extraction, the concentrate product is dewaxed to purge out any remaining lipids. Then creating a concentrate with a taffy-like consistency.
Pull ‘n’ snap vs. rosin
Due to starting material and pressing methods, some rosins settle into a similar taffy-like consistency similar to it. Bur despite visual and textural similarity, pull ‘n’ snap and rosin differ in their extraction methods. It is usually created using solvents, whereas rosin is made without solvents. Due to the lack of chemical solvents, rosin usually contains more plant matter than pull ‘n’ snap. This will vaporize better at a lower temperature.
What does It mean?
A term describing the consistency of a specific type of cannabis concentrate. This kind of concentrate can be “pulled” and stretched with gentle action, but will “snap” and shatter when direct quick force is applied. Their consistency can also depend on temperature. Colder temperatures will greatly contribute to the product having a more shatter-like texture, while warm temperatures can soften it to the point of melting.
It is easy to work with, especially if you modify the temps to your tastes.”
A cannabis concentrate with a taffy-like consistency. It is more malleable than shatter but thicker than oil. It is just as potent as shatter but easier to work with.”
What does it refer to?
It refers to a consistency of shatter that can be stretched but will usually snap if you quickly pull it apart. The consistency is a happy medium between shatter and wax. Wax is a little on the runny side while shatter is of a more solid texture.
When you do end up pulling it apart, it tends to make a snapping kind of sound. Hence the name pull ‘n’ snap. It is consumed through dabbing. It can also be mixed in a bowl to result in a more potent high. If you have ever had a taffy candy, this can quickly remind you of how the exact consistency of it is like. If the temperature of the room is milder, then it will most likely have a pulling apart consistency. But if it is cooler, it should be able to easily snap apart.
Quick motions will also cause it to break apart easier. Meanwhile slow and smoother motions will just cause it to stretch. Many consumers of it enjoy the consistency and visual appeal that it has. They find it easy to work with and not as sticky as some of the other concentrates like sap. Because of the fact that it shares properties of both shatter and wax, it makes it fairly versatile. Users sometimes prefer to wrap some of it around their joints. Sometimes blunts and it can also potentially be converted into budder
