Badder/Batter is one of the consistencies for cannabis concentrates. Unlike shatters, badder or batter is malleable, and its look and consistency vary depending on the method used for its extraction. Cannabis budder is one of the easiest consistencies of cannabis concentrate to dab.
In short, not much. Badder, batter, and budder are terms used to describe the appearance, texture, and consistency of a similar set of cannabis concentrates. While some processors have been able to make these textures out of solventless rosin, most badders, batters, and budders are made with the use of solvents.
Budder tends to retain a smooth consistency like butter or cake frosting, while badder can sometimes have a looser consistency closer to sauce. Others look more like crumble with a bumpier texture. Budder and batter concentrates can be made using trim, cured nugs, or a freshly harvested plant (live resin). The appearance of these types of concentrates can range from greenish-brown to buttery gold. Badders, batters, and budders produced from high-quality cannabis tend to be bright blond and have strong but smooth flavors.
Dabbing is the most common way to consume these concentrates. Using a dabber or dab tool with a flat tip — as opposed to dabber with a scoop-style tip — allows consumers to pick up the budder and keep it tacked on the tool. When the flat-tip dab tool makes contact with a heated nail, the badder or budder vaporizes almost instantly.
