A kind of cannabis concentrate named for its appearance and texture. It has an opaque appearance and a thick, malleable, and — surprise, surprise — wax-like consistency.
What is wax?
Marijuana wax refers to a potent cannabis concentrate that has been agitated during the extraction process, causing the oil to crystallize and solidify. The consistency and texture of wax can range from gooey or creamy, referred to as budder, to something harder and flaky, known as crumble or honeycomb. Higher-quality waxes tend to be softer and amber-toned.
For cannabis connoisseurs and those looking to experience an intense high with a superior flavor, wax can offer a potent psychoactive experience. With high cannabinoid concentration and THC content averaging between 60% and 80%, a little wax goes a very long way.
Cannabis wax is generally smoked using a dab rig but can also be vaped. It’s a user-friendly concentrate that’s easy to work with. Unlike shatter, it doesn’t break into small, unusable pieces and it’s firmer than oil, which can be difficult to keep on a dab nail.
