Definition

A shift in the consistency of cannabis concentrates that have not been dewaxed. Typically, a clear concentrate will "sugar up" if left out in areas with high exposure to light or heat. "Sugared" cannabis concentrates resemble the name and can take on a granulated, cloudy form. Exposure to heat, light and air can cause spontaneous nucleation of cannabinoids, subsequently purging some terpenes, lipids and waxes. Generally considered an undesirable but innocuous transformation, possibly losing some flavor in the process, but retaining overall potency.

Usage


"How long has this gram of shatter been left out for? It's sugaring up pretty good!"
