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!

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!
