Wax is a popular form of cannabis concentrate known for its soft, pliable texture that resembles earwax, hence the name. This concentrate is produced through an extraction process where butane, CO2, or another solvent is used to extract the cannabinoids and terpenes from the cannabis plant material. The solution is then purged through a vacuum oven to remove the solvent, resulting in a potent product with high THC levels.

Cannabis wax can vary in consistency, from soft and pliable to more crumbly, often referred to as “crumble” or “honeycomb wax.” Its high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes makes it a preferred choice for those seeking a more intense and rapid onset of effects compared to traditional smoking methods. Wax is commonly consumed through dabbing, using a dab rig or vaporizer specifically designed for concentrates, which heats the wax to a high temperature to produce vapor without combustion.
