Wondering how to make THC wax? You’ve come to the right place!
Cannabis wax is a soft, opaque substance produced by extracting cannabis plant material. It’s a form of cannabis concentrate. The wax has a high concentration of THC (the psychoactive compound in marijuana).
The most common technique to consume wax is dabbing, using a blowtorch, glass pipe, and a nail to create vapor and smoke.
Solvent vs. Solvent-Free
Wax may have a variety of textures and consistencies, depending on the heat, texture, and moisture.
The most common variety of wax is Butane hash oil (BHO), which is made by using Butane as a solvent. It’s hard to make at home because butane can be very dangerous if not handled properly. Butane is a highly combustible and poisonous gas that must be handled with care.
A much safer approach to making THC Wax is by applying heat and pressure to extract the cannabis concentrates. You can safely do it at home by using a common hair strengthener. This technique is based on Rosin Tech’s large-scale process such as the hydraulic rosin press that produces dabs without solvent, free of chemicals and explosion risks.
Take some buds and wrap them in parchment paper. Then set a hair straightener to low heat (230-300 degrees Fahrenheit) and lay the wrapped buds in the middle, pushing down as hard as possible for 3-5 seconds. You may even step on it, but be careful of the heat.
The sticky material should ooze out of the flower. Simply collect it from the parchment paper with a razor blade or dabbing tool and you’re ready to go. This THC wax can have as much as 80 percent cannabinoid content!
How To Use Cannabis Wax
The most popular method of consuming wax is to use a dab rig, which is simply a water bong with a nail attached. A nail is an attachment for a bong that comprises titanium, ceramic, or any other substance used to create a wax-burning surface.
The wax is “dabbed” onto the surface and inhaled through the bong after being heated to red-hot temperatures with a blowtorch. Using a blowtorch and the high temperatures involved are both potentially hazardous.
Vaporizers are also a popular way to consume wax. Because most vaporizers have coils that can reach high enough temperatures to handle wax, this has become quite popular.
Vaping with wax is simple, efficient, quick, and just as effective. Many younger individuals are switching to this technique.
Why Use Cannabis Wax?
The most apparent advantage of using cannabis wax is its potency. Wax has a high concentration of THC and very little or no butane. The high temperatures of a rig’s combustion process may potentially help to reduce smoking-related lung damage since dabbing with a rig creates only a vapor.
The high from a dab is almost instantaneous, making it ideal for pain relief, sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, loss of appetite, and various other ailments.
Concluding on How to Make THC Wax
If you want to try a much safer approach to making THC Wax, you can safely do it at home by using a common hair strengthener. It’s a lot less dangerous than the other methods and is just as effective.
THC wax can be very potent, so it’s important to start with a small amount and increase as needed. Be sure to store it in a safe place and keep it away from children and pets. Thanks for reading! I hope this was helpful.
