Badder/batter and budder are terms used to describe the appearance, texture, and consistency of an extract. The appearance ranges from a greenish-brown to a buttery gold.

One of the many consistencies for cannabis concentrates, identified by its malleable texture that looks and feels like cake frosting. Not all Badder looks the same, and the appearance depends on the starting material and methods of extraction. Some Badder is partly sticky, leaning towards the consistency of Sauce, while others look more like Crumble with a bumpier texture.
A cannabis concentrate with a soft, solid consistency similar to a stick of butter. Budder is one of many concentrate textures and appears in Rosin and many solvent-based extractions. A phenomenon called “auto-buddering” can occur with extracts that have not been winterized if they are exposed to fluctuating temperatures or excess humidity.
How to consume Badder/Batter and Budder
Dabbing is the most common way to consume these concentrates. Using a dab tool with a flat tip, rather than a 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 the heated nail, the badder melts and will instantly vaporize. The user then places a cap over the nail to inhale the concentrate vapour. Badder is most often used with handheld dabbers and vape pens, and can also be sprinkled on a bowl or in a blunt.
To experience the desired terpene flavours, the optimal temperature to dab badder/batter and budder is between 350-400 degrees Fahrenheit, or 176.67-204.44 degrees Celsius. This temperature range will ensure that you volatilize all the tasty terpenes without scorching them.
