Cannabidiol, or CBD, is the latest medical discovery to advance human health. Lab-tested CBD products are popular everywhere now, but there is much more than just oils, tinctures, topicals, and the usual available. The market is growing, with companies getting very innovative indeed. Some CBD extracts boast insanely high levels of CBD, so one wax vape, perhaps two, and you are good to go again.
According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, CBD has no effects for potential abuse and is completely safe to use. Even CBD wax, with its extremely high concentrations. Because CBD is non-psychoactive, so it cannot make you high, as well as plentiful and easily absorbable by the body, it is not going away anytime soon, and in fact, could see its fellow cannabinoids joining it, such as cannabigerol.
The process of extracting CBD oil leaves wax behind, a natural byproduct. Trusted and credible manufacturers use only the latest CO2 extraction technologies to ensure the highest quality. Once extracted, companies then isolate CBD from other extracted compounds. As CO2 dissipates, a sticky wax forms. These days, this wax comes in various consistency, texture, flavor, and potency profiles.
As with THC-rich cannabis products, CBD concentrates exist aplenty too. Newbies to the world of CBD sometimes find the idea of vaping wax a mite confusing, especially as various lab-tested CBD products exist, all with notable differences that make choosing one difficult, even overwhelming for some, even the most diehard enthusiasts. CBD wax typically comes in these types of products:
Slab, more formally CBD shatter, is possibly the most popular of all wax products. It looks like broken glass, hence its name, and derives from supercritical CO2 extraction. The result is a pure, full spectrum CBD concentrate that hardens into its shattered wax appearance after heating it slightly during processing. Avoid shatter that contains butane and other residual solvents. Check laboratory results.
CBD budder looks like a creamy wax, almost resembling cannabutter in appearance. After extraction, companies agitate the molecules in the oil in order to make cannabinoids easier to purge. They then whip the oil to create its creamy consistency. Unlike shatter, budder is soft, almost malleable. This makes it easier to handle and use for some folks.
The process of making CBD crumble is very similar to making budder, but it uses a CBD oil already purged. For this reason, it already has an agitated structure, so when formulating the wax, the result is even more fragile to the touch, which is why it crumbles so. Although crumble may lack potency compared to other products, it is not as sticky as budder is, and it is easier to work with than shatter.
You can consume CBD wax in a variety of ways, from sprinkling it over your bowl and joints to vaping it. Since many CBD users do not smoke joints or bowls, vaping is really the best and healthiest option. When it comes to vaping wax, however, there are two primary ways you can do it successfully, and to accomplish the job, you need one of two important things:
Dab rigs are popular. They are also big, clumsy, expensive, and difficult to use for newbies. Similar in some ways to a hookah, dab rigs are a little more complex to get going. You use a heating mechanism, usually a nail, made hot with a blowtorch. E-nails are pricier and safer, since they use electric heating. When hot, you melt the wax on the nail and inhale its vapors.
For most, vape pens offer the most convenience, especially when vaping CBD wax. However, not any vape pen will work. You need one where you can take the battery and the atomizer apart to expose the coils. Once exposed, switch it on and use a dabber to put wax on. Attach the atomizer again, secure the mouthpiece, and then press the button. The wax will vaporize inside the chamber.
CBD has never been more popular, and with new products entering the market at a rapid pace, CBD wax is not surprising. It is effective, however, and popular. It is not going away anytime soon. In fact, CBD wax products are only going to get more complex, with specific cannabinoid profiles for healing specific health conditions, and so much more. Experts predict a multibillion-dollar market in the next few years.
