Budder is a cannabis concentrate where the goal is to retain most of the weed’s terpenes. To recap, terpenes are compounds found in plants responsible for the smell and taste of the plant. Because budder is a concentrate that focuses on high levels of terpenes, it is one of the most flavorful concentrates. The name is derived from the creamy, yellowish consistency known to butter. When budder is made, it has to be thoroughly whipped. This is why it looks like butter. It is believed that budder is the most potent form of cannabis available, and also the cleanest.
