Wax Facts

Concentrates are known by many names such as shatter, crumble, honeycomb, BHO, dabs and most commonly wax. Smokers named Wax after how it looks, and it is also the most potent form of marijuana currently available on the market.

This concentrated form of cannabis often has an aesthetic extremely similar to that of beeswax. Crumble is a byproduct of cannabis that yields up to 80% pure THC upon extraction. Tokers often refer to this elevating goop as ‘dabs,’ because they only need a small amount to achieve the extremely potent effects of THC.

How is Wax Made?

It is important for smokers to note that making wax is extremely dangerous. Hence, WeGrow does not condone making the golden glass at home. Furthermore, making wax at home can yield you a chemical-laden byproduct, explosions, and consequently fatalities.

If you are blowing butane through your cannabis, the process is quite flammable. Therefore, only ‘Blasters,’ or cannabis experts who are tenured in making these strong extracts should attempt to create it.

The filtered butane is pressurized, or ‘blasted’  through the cannabis via a pipe yielding an amber or golden extraction of THC. The product is now Butane Honey Oil, or BHO. It can be hard, requiring a breaking, giving birth to the term
shatter.

On average, it takes approximately one ounce or 28 grams to make an eighth. 3.5 grams of shatter. This is why shatter is extremely potent. WeGrow recommends that you only purchase your dabs from a dispensary.

Although you can buy cannabis from a dispensary in some legal states at 18, ‘dabs’ can only be purchased by adults who are 21 years or older.

How/Where to Purchase Concentrates

Users can purchase Wax, shatter, honeycomb, marijuana oil etc., from a dispensary. As mentioned earlier, cannabis connoisseurs must be at 21 years old to purchase dabs. Dispensaries will usually have the name of the cannabis strain on the package used to identify it.

Pure forms of THC range from $45 per gram to $80 a gram considering the state in which you reside.

What Should I Expect When ‘Dabbing’?

Smokers use a bong (water pipe) or vaporizer to torch a small amount of wax (a dab), then ingesting the contents. Most importantly, users should expect to be cautious with the amount of wax they portion as they will become extremely high.

You won’t need to purchase a lot of it! Rest assured 0.2 grams of the potent extract will grant you a smooth first experience. And finally, as the old saying goes: only a dab’ll do you!

Cannabis culture has been growing at an ever-expanding rate. People are accepting marijuana’s benefits, and it is becoming international! Thus, the government is rethinking the old rules and regulations that have long held back cannabis. Because of this, the mainstream public seems to be intrigued by new possibilities of pain management.

Users have recently been finding out about compounds such as CBD, or “cannabidiol”. Consequently, this is one of the most exciting developments within the cannabis “boom”.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow guide to CBD and its amazing advantages!

What is CBD?

Scientists have discovered CBD (cannabidiol) as one of 100 canna-compounds. Users will not get ‘high’ on CBD, as it is not psychoactive, unlike THC. These two compounds are able to interact and counteract each other.

Many patients with serious conditions now highly prefer pain management through CBD because it does not get them ‘high’. Caregivers now have an alternative to offer instead of traditional pain killers.

Cancer patients whom CBD may also benefit will also see this as welcome news. Researchers at The National Cancer Institute have concluded that CBD may help to alleviate cancer symptoms. They are finding even more specific uses of CBD as funding for further studies is increases.

States have enacted their own versions of public policy following cannabis legalization. Therefore, THC/CBD levels allowed by the government sometimes vary. However, generally the THC-to-CBD ratio is 20:1 on the recreational side. Researchers and scientists have made great efforts that have allowed medicinal growers to focus more on their CBD production. Patients and caregivers, consequently, have welcomed this new development with open arms.

 What are the Benefits of CBD?

Cannabidiol (CBD) has the potential to treat a number of conditions. Patients have been successfully treated for PTSD, alcoholism, multiple sclerosis, psoriasis, depression, anxiety, epileptic episodes and other neurological disorders. Researchers have credited CBD  as an anti-inflammatory, blood sugar regulator, antibacterial, anti-carcinogen and even as neuroprotective agent.

What’s with this recent CBD ‘Fad’?

People’s recent acceptance of cannabis culture can be seen as a positive thing. However, it is not without its side-effects. Public awareness of the differences and specific benefits of compounds such as THC and CBD is needed to avoid the spread of negative stigmas that only set the movement further back.

As the public gains more information, confusion lessens. The average person is beginning to understand that CBD is not just a fad, and in fact is a ‘miracle-cure’ solution for effective pain management & disease treatment!

Growers of all skill levels have several goals in common. Perhaps the most central objective is the hunt for increased levels of compounds such as ‘THC’. The search for the perfect ‘high’ is now at a fever pitch.

Most recreational users prefer THC over CBD. Thus, new genetic developments in breeding have been focused on ensuring more robust and more potent harvests.

Keep reading for an exclusive WeGrow guide to the compound Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol – otherwise known as ‘THC’.

 

What is THC?


Cannabis plants contain over 100 compounds. One of the most important these is Delta-9 Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). It is recognized as the compound that gives marijuana its psychoactive nature.

Cannabis use can be traced as far back as ancient Chinese dynasties from around 3,000 B.C. and earlier. People have used it since then and studied it further in the 20th century. Modern recreational smokers can be excited about enhanced cross-breeding techniques that will surely raise THC levels, making their “high” better.

How does THC work with the body?

Cannabinoids work with the body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS). ECS is responsible for the relationship between receptors and cannabinoids such as CBD, THC, CBN. The compound THC affects our brain cells to unleash the epinephrine precursor Dopamine.

This release of chemicals in the brain creates a unique state of euphoria. This varies depending on the person. Effects of THC can last for up to two hours. Onset symptoms can be felt anywhere between 10 to 40 minutes after ingestion.

Are there any Benefits to Ingesting THC?

Similar to other cannabis compounds, THC has its own list of benefits; researchers have recognized it as an anti-carcinogen. It has also been used to help treat glaucoma, multiple sclerosis, & inflammatory bowel disease.

It even promotes a more active metabolism! THC also helps ease discomfort from ailments such as arthritis and osteoporosis. This compound has become the ‘miracle drug’ for many cultures throughout the entire world!

Are there any side effects of THC?

The negative effects of cannabis consumption are basically nonexistent. Despite the propaganda of the 1920s, the world is slowly beginning to realize its folly.

Ingesting THC can cause many benign effects such as increased (or decreased) sociability, redness of eyes, and leads to finding normally non-humorous things hilarious.

However, it is important to note: individuals with addictive personalities, and individuals previously diagnosed with psychosis or psychotic traits can have some negative effects from THC.

With the help of WeGrow, you’ve been perfecting your harvest; germinating your seeds, watching them grow into seedlings and eventually adult plants. Since then, you’ve harvested your plants and trimmed your dried buds to perfection. It is now time for you to reap the benefits of your harvest by rolling and smoking a blunt!

Follow these exclusive WeGrow tips as we walk you through the terminology and simple steps to rolling the perfect blunt:

What is a “Blunt”?

Smokers coined the term based on how the finished rolled product looked like an unshapely blunt object such as a baseball bat. Puffers usually use brands such as Phillies, Goodtimes, Games and Garcia y Vega.

How to Roll the Perfect Blunt

When it comes to rolling a blunt, the only essentials are your ground up cannabis and choice of cigar. Here are the steps to rolling a perfect Blunt:

  • Take your cigar and split it evenly down the middle with a blade. If you are using your fingers, start from the top then lightly pull apart the cigar until it has been fully split.
  • Once you have split your cigar, dispose of the excess tobacco.
  • Gently and evenly wet the inside of the cigar with your saliva or water to make the leaf more flexible.
  • Add your freshly ground up cannabis to the lightly moistened cigar evenly from end to end. A rule of thumb is that the tapered end of the cigar or cigarillo is usually reserved to be the ‘mouthpiece’ of your blunt.
  • Once you have added your greenery, using your thumbs in the front and your index fingers behind the blunt, carefully roll your thumbs and index fingers together to compact the ground bud into a log that fits snugly inside.
  • Take the side of the leaf that is facing you and tuck it behind the rolled cannabis. Begin the tuck from the mouthpiece all the way until the end of the blunt. A general rule of thumb is to tuck with the natural weight of your thumb.
  • Once you have tucked the forward part of your cigar behind your cannabis, it is time to seal your blunt. You can do this by utilizing the “lick-by-lick” method in which you make your way from the mouthpiece to the end whilst tucking.
  • Allow your freshly rolled blunt to dry off any excess water or saliva. This usually only takes a minute or so. Some smokers will tell you to carefully run your lighter down the length of the blunt until it is sufficiently dried
  • You have now rolled your first blunt! Enjoy!
