Marijuana concentrates contain extraordinarily high levels of THC that range from 40 to 80 percent of THC. This form of marijuana can have up to four times higher THC content than high-quality or premium marijuana, which normally measures around 20 percent of THC levels. Vaping with extracts can be one of the most accessible types of vaping or one of the most intense, depending on the type of extract you choose. Both oil and wax extracts are called oleoresins.
The oil is less intense and usually comes in pre-filled cartridges. Wax is the more intense of the two and can be a brittle or semi-solid substance. Both wax and oil are extracted from the marijuana plant, but the wax is much more potent. There are other differences between wax and oil, so keep reading to learn what they are and which one suits you best.
Budder wax, also sometimes called poor quality wax, is a wax-like cannabis concentrate that is softer, oilier and more viscous than most waxes. It is made at a higher temperature than similar waxes and is whipped during the extraction process, giving it a unique texture. Budder has few cannabinoids, but is much richer in terpenes than other hashish oil extractions. While wax and splinter usually range from 40 to 70% THC, distillate can reach 99% THC, making it by far the most efficient way to consume THC in terms of pure potency.
When wax is extracted from the cannabis plant, the substance that is created has a very high concentration of cannabinoids and terpenes, that is, it is very potent and very intense and can have THC concentrations of up to 90%. Wax extracts that have names such as sap, living resin or bud are softer and more flexible substances, exactly what you would expect from a substance called wax. It is also a form of vaping that requires more maintenance, since wax can be a complicated substance to handle and vaporizers that use wax will need constant maintenance to prevent residues from forming in their ovens. In this post, we'll discuss important topics, explain how cannabis wax is made, and answer questions such as “how to smoke wax”.
Wax is easily the more intense of the two substances because of the extraction method used to create it. Wax can come in soft and semi-solid form, as the name suggests, but it can also come in solid form. As stated before, the type of wax depends on many different factors, from the strain of marijuana used to the way it is harvested and the special adjustments that are made during the manufacturing process. The higher concentration of THC in waxes and edible products can lead to unintentional overconsumption, which can cause a variety of symptoms, from cannabinoid hyperemesis syndrome to symptoms of psychosis.
While cannabis can cause psychedelic experiences that can have a negative impact on mood, marijuana wax intensifies these experiences due to the higher concentration of THC in the product.
