CBD Wax

CBD wax is a form of concentrate from the hemp plant. Its name comes from its wax like consistency and appearance which is the result of the extraction and purification process. CBD wax products tend to contain 80-90% cannabidiol which means they can offer brilliant value for money as they provide a higher dose with a small amount of product. This makes them more suited to experienced users rather than those new to the world of CBD.

What Is CBD?

CBD is the commonly known abbreviation for cannabidiol. It is one of many different natural substances found within the cannabis plant that are known as cannabinoids. Although cannabidiol is derived from the cannabis plant, CBD products are in fact legal and do not cause users to experience a high. It is actually the THC cannabinoid within the plant that causes the high, and CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC in order to remain legal. For this reason, cannabidiol is usually derived from the hemp variety of the cannabis plant, as the hemp plant contains large amounts of CBD but little amounts of THC. Often, this is carried out using a CO2 extraction process, but other extraction methods are available. CBD has soared in popularity in recent years as people believe it to have a range of health benefits, however, it must be stated that we make no claims about the health benefits of CBD or any product that we sell. Research into CBD is still in its early phases and so more research is needed to be carried out to understand its benefits.

What Is CBD Wax?

To put it simply, CBD wax is a form of cannabis concentrate that is derived from the hemp variety of the plant. As it’s a concentrate you only need small amounts of it in order to feel the effects. This has led to it growing in popularity because it is one of the most cost effective forms of CBD. It’s given the name CBD wax due to its wax like consistency once the CBD has been purified and extracted from the hemp plant. Our CBD wax products contain 66% CBD, which means that 1g of wax will contain 660mg of CBD, whilst 0.5g will contain 330mg of CBD.

What Are The Different Types of CBD Wax?

Although CBD wax is the name given to the group of products, there’s actually a number of different types. It’s important you understand their differences in order to decide which product is right for you. The four different types of different CBD wax products are:

CBD Shatter

CBD shatter offers one of the cleanest types of CBD wax as it is made by repeatedly filtering CBD. It has a rough texture, but it gets its name from the fact it looks similar to glass and will shatter if handled too abrasively. It takes a clear, yellow colour and is often described as looking gooey like honey when heated.

CBD Budder

CBD budder is often more wax-like than the other types of CBD wax, and it’s referred to as budder due to it’s similarity to butter. It is made by using air pressure and heating the CBD before then whipping it like a batter.

CBD Crumble

CBD crumble is very similar to budder, but it gets its name from the fact it is more of a crumble like substance. This is because it uses a CBD oil that has greater moisture and viscosity than budder does.

CBD Live Resin

CBD live resin is made from fresh or frozen hemp plants and uses live plants, which means they have not been decarboxylated. Users often describe live resin as having a more pleasant taste and smell than other types of CBD wax.

How Do I Use CBD Wax?

There are a variety of methods that can be used to consume CBD wax. You should familiarise yourself with each method and its benefits so that you can make a decision on what might work best for you. The most common methods of using CBD wax are:

Dabbing

Dabbing is the most popular way to consume CBD wax, however you will need special tools and equipment known as a dab rig in order to dab. To dab CBD wax, simply add the wax to the hot surface of the dab rig where it will then instantly turn to vapor. As it does so, the vapor is inhaled, much like you do with a bong.

Bong

Instead of using a dabbing rig to consume CBD wax, you can use a bong which more people are familiar with. Simply add the CBD wax to the bong, light it and inhale it.

Vaping

Finally, a third way to consume CBD wax which most people will be familiar with is using a dab pen to vape it. This is much like using a vape pen, where the coils will heat up to warm the wax so you can then vape it.

How Much Wax Should I Use?

CBD wax is highly potent as its a cannabis concentrate. This means that you’ll only need very small amounts of it in order to feel the effects. There is no set best amount to use, but the best advice we can give is to start with a very small amount and asses how you feel. Then, adjust the amount accordingly the next time you use it. If you feel you need more CBD wax then you can do so.

How Is CBD Wax Made?

In order to make CBD wax, CBD is first extracted from the hemp plant using either a butane or CO2 extraction method.

CO2 extraction is one of the most common methods of CBD extraction as it is the cleanest. It involves using pressurised carbon dioxide and blasting the plant to extract the essential oils which include the natural terpenes, flavonoids and cannabinoids. Any leftover CO2 within the concentrate will simply evaporate, which means users can be confident of not consuming any solvents.

This differs from butane hash oil extraction process, where users can not be quite so confident. With butane hash oil extraction, butane is used to extract the cannabinoids, flavonoids and terpenes from the hemp plant. The butane then evaporated to leave a highly concentrated substance.

The CBD will be placed in a carrier oil such as MCT oil. From here, the oil will then be heated to extract the CBD until it turns wax-like. When it does so it may crumble, which is where the name CBD crumble comes from.

What Are the Benefits of CBD Wax?

CBD wax comes with a range of particular benefits. The main one being its high potency which means that users can consume small amounts of CBD wax but still feel the benefits. This is clearly one of the more cost effective methods of taking CBD.

I’m New to CBD, Is CBD Wax Good for Me to Start With?

CBD wax is a brilliant way to get a high potency hit of CBD, but due to its high strength we wouldn’t recommend those new into CBD to start with it. Instead, we’d suggest that you start with products which are easier to use and less potent such as CBD oilsCBD vape juice, or CBD capsules.

Will CBD Wax Get Me High?

No, CBD wax will not get you high. CBD products do not cause users to experience a high as they must contain less than 0.2% THC. Our wax products all meet this guideline and so you can consume them without worrying about getting high.

Is CBD Wax Legal Within The UK?

Yes, CBD wax is legal within the UK as it contains less than 0.2% THC. Under UK law, all CBD products must contain less than 0.2% THC. All of our products comply with this guideline.

Is CBD Wax Safe?

Yes, CBD wax is safe to use. CBD has even been classified as safe for human consumption by the WHO. However, CBD wax is a very potent form of CBD which means you only need a very small amount to feel the effects. For this reason, you should be very careful not to consume too much. Too much CBD is considered to be more than 70mg a day, and doing so could result in some unwanted side effects such as drowsiness or diarrhea. Additionally, before using CBD we would highly recommend that you consult your doctor to ensure that CBD is right for you to use. CBD is not right for everyone, which is especially true for those who may take prescription medications where the reaction with CBD is unknown. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding it is also strongly advised that you do not use CBD products.

Are All Products Lab Tested?

Many of our products contain a full lab report so you can be assured of their quality ingredients and levels of THC, CBD and other cannabinoids. Just check the product page where an image of the lab report will be provided should one be available.

Can CBD Cause A Negative Drugs Test?

Whilst it is extremely unlikely for CBD to cause a negative drugs test, it is not impossible. The substance within CBD that may be flagged on a drugs test and cause a negative result is THC. All CBD products we sell contain less than 0.2% THC, with some even being completely THC free. Less than 0.2% THC is unlikely to be enough to be picked up on a drugs test, but is not impossible. For this reason, if you are required to pass a drugs test, perhaps for work reasons, then we would recommend you choose a CBD product which contains zero THC to give peace of mind. It is also recommended to choose a product which contains a lab report so you can be assured of the exact THC content.

What Is Full Spectrum & CBD Isolate?

When looking to buy CBD wax, it is important to understand the difference between full spectrum CBD and CBD isolate.

Full spectrum CBD products are those which contain the full spectrum of cannabinoids, natural terpenes and flavonoids from the cannabis plant. Crucially this means that they may contain up to 0.2% THC. Many users of full spectrum products do so because they claim they can provide the entourage effect. This is the belief that the different cannabinoids work together to provide a greater effect than they would have individually.

On the other hand, with CBD isolate the CBD cannabinoid is isolated which means that no other cannabinoids or natural terpenes are included. As a result, users are unable to benefit from the entourage effect. However, it is beneficial for those who do not want to consume any THC.
