Understanding Medical Cannabis Wax With The Stone


Medical Cannabis wax is a pure and concentrated form of the marijuana plant, which can be used in many ways to aid patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) and other conditions. It turns out that weed wax is truly a revolutionary medication, whether it be for the form factor, the potency, or even the flavors; wax is delicious. The medical Cannabis wax can pack quite a punch though, so know your limits!

What is Medical Cannabis Wax?

Medical Cannabis Wax is a waxy form of cannabis concentrates that contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and/or cannabidiol (CBD). Some people say Medical Cannabis Wax tastes like earwax or butterscotch. It typically melts at low temperatures for dabbing purposes and tends to be sticky and solid at room temperature. Medical Cannabis Wax can come in a number of different forms as follows:
  • Budder is Medical Cannabis Wax that has been whipped to make it light and fluffy with the consistency of earwax or lip balm. Budder comes from the bud, which refers to buds being broken up into more usable pieces.
  • Honeycomb is Medical Cannabis Wax that has been whipped with a tool called a 'scratcher.' It resembles honeycombs, hence the name. Honeycomb tends to be more light and fluffy than other types of wax.
  • Shatter is Medical Cannabis Wax that has been super-heated (which causes it to become hard and brittle) so that it can be broken into smaller pieces. Shatter is usually clear or off-white in color and tends to have the same texture throughout (like glass).
  • Rig wax is Medical Cannabis Wax which has been refined using a filter system so that the finished product resembles earwax or lip balm. The color of the finished product can be yellow, green or brown.
  • Taffy is Medical Cannabis Wax that has been whipped into a strand-like consistency and then wrapped around itself in concentric circles (similar to taffy candy). Taffy typically comes from a BHO extraction process but can also come from an SBS Extraction.

What are the Uses for Medical Cannabis Wax?

Medical Cannabis Wax can be used in many different ways, including orally (by far the most popular method) or inhaled. When dabbing, a torch is typically used to heat a nail and then place your Medical Cannabis Wax onto the hot nail where it will melt down into an oil and then vaporize into a gas. In the United States, Medical Cannabis Wax is legal in all but two states (Idaho and Kansas). In Canada, Medical Cannabis Wax will be legalized for recreational use starting on October 17th so it could potentially become available in many more Canadian provinces at that time. Other uses for Medical Cannabis Wax are as follows: Medical Cannabis Wax can be added to food or drinks. Some people add it to brownies, muffins, cookies, and tea. Some people use Medical Cannabis Wax in a topical form by rubbing it directly onto their skin. This is also known as 'dabbing' because the concentrate is heated and then placed onto the skin in a similar way that hot wax is used in some beauty treatments. Smoking or vaping Medical Cannabis Wax (although this can be wasteful because it burns so quickly). It can also be combined with other types of marijuana or tobacco to create a joint (marijuana cigarette) or blunt. Some people use Medical Cannabis Wax sublingually, which means it is placed under the tongue and absorbed into the bloodstream from there. This method has its pros and cons because you don't get high like you do when using it orally (it's more of a stimulant). The definition of "wax" in this context refers to an oil concentrate that has been "whipped" until it becomes light and fluffy. When this substance is in a solid form, it can be used for various ways to ingest and inhale the medical cannabis. To make medical cannabis wax, you need some special tools such as an extractor (which slowly heats your oil), a whip (to pull the hot air away from the vessel containing your oil), and some type of vacuum pump (to ensure that all of your oil is being heated evenly). The essence of this method entails a slow and calculated process, which can take up to several hours. If you're not a patient person though, never fear! You can purchase other forms of wax from dispensaries OR make your own at home, but it should be noted that these other forms of wax typically only work with certain vaporizers. ---------------------- As mentioned previously, there are various ways to ingest and inhale medical cannabis wax, which is one of the best things about this oil concentrate. For example, if you're someone who really enjoys eating edibles, then you can eat some weed wax in lieu of your regular cookie. While you may have to wait an hour or so before the process begins, your body will absorb much more of the medical marijuana because it enters into your liver when ingested. Unfortunately, if you aren't a huge edibles fan, then there are other ways to ingest this oil. You can purchase "dab pens" (similar to e-cigarettes), which will heat the wax until it becomes a gas, and then you can inhale this vapor. The effects of wax hit you much faster when taking this route, but typically only last a few minutes. Alternatively, you can purchase vape cartridges that are prefilled with medical Cannabis oil to be used in "e-nails" (similar to traditional e-nails, but not used for heating wax), liquid vaporizers, or even vape pens. While this may be your only option if you don't know how to make marijuana wax yourself, it's important to note that these cartridges are typically made with propylene glycol and other chemicals which can send the wrong message about the benefits of medical marijuana.

If you're new to the world of vaping, then it's important to note that there are some "technical difficulties" with both types of vaporizers. For instance, any vape pen will typically not be able to handle wax, so you'll have to heat your wax on a coil first before adding it to a cartridge. Similarly, an e-nail will typically be sent with a titanium nail that only heats up enough for you to dab your wax. In order to use your e-nail with wax, you will have to purchase a domeless quartz or ceramic nail from another vendor and then heat that before placing the wax on top. Another "technique" that can be used with medical cannabis wax is the oil rig. This type of contraption is typically made of glass and consists of a tube, a bucket, and a dome all attached to one another. At the very bottom of the tube sits your wax concentrate which will slowly bubble up through water in the bucket and then through the dome where it gets vaporized. If you aren't a fan of wax or just want more options, there are other concentrated forms of cannabis oil such as kief, rosin, and shatter - but those will be discussed in another article. Now that you're well-informed on this topic, make sure to do your own research before purchasing any wax or vape cartridges.

DID YOU KNOW?

Medical Cannabis Wax is a type of cannabis that has been concentrated, and then made into a wax-like consistency.

It contains the same active ingredients as smoking cannabis flower (i.e. THC), but with an increased concentration. The THC concentration can vary from 30% to 99%. This means that vaporizing Medical Cannabis Wax offers patients a more efficient way to consume cannabis, because less will be used when compared to regular medical cannabis flower.

Vaporizing Medical Cannabis Wax also provides patients the same medical benefits as Medical Cannabis Flower, contrary to claims that vaporizing allows patients to experience stronger effects and a different type of high.
