Wax, in the context of cannabis, refers to a type of cannabis concentrate that is known for its thick, sticky, and wax-like consistency. It is a highly potent form of cannabis extract that is rich in cannabinoids, particularly THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), the psychoactive compound in cannabis.

It is typically produced through a solvent-based extraction method, such as butane extraction or CO2 extraction. During the extraction process, the cannabinoids, terpenes, and other desirable compounds are concentrated, resulting in a sticky and opaque substance that resembles the texture of wax.

One of the distinguishing characteristics of wax is its high THC content, often exceeding 70% or more. This high potency makes it popular among experienced cannabis users seeking a strong and immediate effect. However, it’s important to note that individual tolerance and dosage should be carefully considered to avoid overconsumption.

The consumption of this is commonly done through a process known as dabbing. Dabbing involves heating a dab rig or a specialized vaporizer device, commonly called a dab pen, and applying a small amount of it onto a heated surface, usually a nail or coil. The heat vaporizes the wax, allowing it to be inhaled, resulting in an intense and immediate effect.

Wax can provide a potent and flavorful experience due to its high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes. The extraction process also allows for the preservation of many of the plant’s aromatic compounds, contributing to the distinct flavors and aromas that can be experienced when dabbing wax.

It’s important to note that dabbing wax requires specialized equipment and caution due to the high temperatures involved. Proper handling, heating, and inhalation techniques should be followed to ensure safety and prevent any potential injuries.

In recent years, the popularity of wax and other cannabis concentrates has grown significantly, leading to the development of various forms and consistencies. These include crumble, budder, shatter, and live resin, each with its own texture and characteristics.
