NUG RUN SHATTER
What is nug run?
Nug is a synonym for cannabis flowers that have been harvested from a mature cannabis plant. These buds are potent and contain rich terpene flavors making it highly desirable for extracting concentrates. “Nug run” is used to describe the concentrated oil extracted from dried and cured cannabis buds that have been exposed after trimming the fan leaves (also known as water leaves) and sugar leaves. This type of concentrate is rich in trichomes, which contain the plant’s cannabinoids and terpenes.
Different kinds of nug run
Extraction artists have options when it comes to the type of nug used to perform a nug run extraction. More often than not, the type of nug used is determined by the flower available to the extraction technician, commonly referred to as an extraction artist. If you’re not yet familiar with larf and popcorn nugs, know that these terms describe the shape and composition of the dried flowers, not necessarily their quality.
