Our CBD wax is derived from premium hemp grown in Colorado. We extract it using an ultra-clean supercritical CO2 extraction process. CBD wax is a very popular form of cannabis concentrate appreciated by many enthusiasts and amateurs alike. When you hear the word wax, you probably associate it with dabs. The two terms are essentially interchangeable in the world of cannabis. This type of concentrate resembles ear wax or candle wax, thus the reason for its name. CBD wax is semi-soft, opaque, and usually tannish or yellow in color. In total it offers over 75% CBD content plus other minor cannabinoids to give us a total cannabinoid value of 87%. Our CBD wax is also full of aromatic terpenes which adds to the synergistic effects cannabis provides.
What Are the Benefits of CBD Wax?
Due to CBD’s high concentration in wax, CBD wax dabs are more effective and efficient than smoking your traditional flower. Studies have shown that the benefits of CBD wax include quick relief because it is able to enter the bloodstream promptly. Dabbing or vaping wax allows you to receive high levels of CBD without ingesting much. CBD wax is entirely distilled, which makes it easily vaporizable. CBD wax can be full-spectrum or broad-spectrum.
Typically, CBD wax is usually full-spectrum. The great thing about a full-spectrum CBD wax is that it contains all of the natural cannabinoids and terpenes in the cannabis plant. When all of the compounds in the cannabis plant work together, it provides the highest form of benefit. This is called the entourage effect. Broad-spectrum wax will contain all the natural terpenes and cannabinoids except THC. Broad-spectrum products are still very beneficial but they do not provide the full entourage effect.
Will CBD Wax Get You High?
No, CBD wax will not get you high. This misconception is entirely built on the effect THC has. Keep in mind CBD is NOT psychoactive. If your CBD concentrate does contain THC (the component that gets you high), it should be less than 0.3% according to the 2018 farm bill. However, some states allow higher concentrations of THC in cannabis products. If you happen to live in one of these areas and shop locally, you should read product labels to avoid high THC amounts.
How is CBD Wax Made?
There are numerous extractions methods to process CBD wax that was developed within the last ten years. These methods are highly advanced techniques that require expertise and creativity. The two most popular methods are:
Butane Hash Oil Extraction (BHO) uses butane to extract all essential oils contained in the cannabis plant. This includes cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. After the essentials are obtained with the butane, the solution is placed into a vacuum chamber. Once it’s in the chamber, the suction pulls the evaporated butane from the mixture, and what’s left is a concentrated wax.
CO2 Extraction is our preferred method, and it’s currently the safest and cleanest extraction technique used to create wax. Believe it or not, CO2 extraction is common practice in the food and beverage industry. To pull out cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids, the CO2 extraction method uses high pressure and fluctuating temperatures to make the CO2 turn supercritical, meaning it is like a liquid and a gas. As the supercritical CO2 passes through the cannabis material, it dissolves the plant’s trichomes allowing the active compounds to release. Once the solution is captured, the CO2 evaporates, leaving behind a pure and clean concentrate free of residual solvents.

What Are the Different Types of CBD Products to Dab With?
- CBD Wax is the OG product of dabbing. It is one of the most popular CBD concentrates. As explained earlier, CBD wax will not get you high. As its name implies, CBD wax has a sticky, gel-like feeling and appearance that is typically brown or yellow. Most consumers prefer the lighter yellowish options because darker concentrates usually signify a low-grade product.
- CBD Shatter looks like glass. Hence the name “shatter,” it can be opaque or semi-transparent. Once it is heated to consume, it turns into a gooey, honey-like liquid. Most CBD shatter is considered by some to be the purest of all concentrates.
- CBD Budder has a creamy soft feel and appearance, like a warm piece of fudge. Usually, you can sprinkle this on your joints, dab, or vape it.
- CBD Crumble is whipped while the wax transforms, which turns it into a soft and delicate substance that crumbles easily.
- CBD Live Resin has a different extraction method that is used to make CBD wax. To produce CBD live resin, the hemp is first freeze-dried. This strategy preserves more cannabinoids and terpenes, which is why CBD Live Resin is considered to be a superlative wax. Because of the creation process, live resin is also the most costly.
Taking CBD Wax Dabs With a Dab Rig
CBD dabs gained traction in the mid-’90s and became popular in the new millennium. Dabs are considered to be one of the most bioavailable ways to consume CBD. Bioavailability refers to the degree and rate for which the CBD is absorbed into your bloodstream. Although dabbing is simple, it does intimidate some.
To use CBD wax, you need a dab rig. There are two heating methods that people use for their dab rig. You can either manually use a torch to superheat the glass nail, or you can purchase an e-nail to heat the bowl automatically. With manual heating, you should let the rig cool down for 40-60 seconds before taking CBD wax dabs.
With automatic heating, the wax is ready to use when the heat is at the temperature of your choice (usually between 350 and 400 degrees Fahrenheit). Next, place the wax on the nail while inhaling, and use a cap or top to slowly restrict and allow air into the glass nail as you breathe in. Use a q-tip the clean out your glass nail after you are done with your CBD dab.
There is more than one way of inhaling CBD. One of the most popular ways to inhale wax is by vaporizing it. The great thing about vaping is that you can place the device in your pocket or purse and use it whenever you please. However, it is crucial that you invest in a quality vaporizer in order to get the safest and best experience imaginable.
Can I Eat CBD Wax?
We do not recommend that you ingest CBD wax by itself, because it works best when it’s heated. Heating the concentrate provides the most potent effects to be felt. Not to mention the taste will be strongly unpleasant and stick to your mouth. If you prefer to eat CBD, there are premium CBD Gummies and CBD oils that will work best. That being said if you want to ingest CBD wax we advise that you add it to a recipe that requires low heat to cook. The low heat will allow the cannabinoids to decarboxylate and become more effective when you consume it.
CBD Wax Effects
Every person has a different experience with CBD concentrates. CBD wax is not like THC wax. THC rushes to your head and makes you feel “high,” but with CBD each exhale is helping you relax. Most people report that it encourages the effect of calmness and relaxation. Others say CBD wax effects can be uplifting, and it may promote focus.
Will Smoking CBD Wax Show Up On A Drug Test?
There are no drug tests designed to look for CBD, and it is not tested for employment drug tests. Full-spectrum CBD wax will have trace amounts of THC, though, so there is a chance you may fail a drug test because of this. You can dab with a refined CBD isolate powder or broad-spectrum CBD to be on the safe side, both of which should not have any THC. Please check the Certificate of Analysis (CoA) on every cannabis product you purchase.
