FAQs about THC Cannabis Budder & Wax
What is THC cannabis budder and wax?
THC cannabis budder and wax are concentrated cannabis extracts known for their smooth, buttery consistency (budder) or solid, waxy texture (wax). What sets them apart is that they retain the natural fats and lipids found in the cannabis plant during the extraction process. These fats and lipids may provide additional benefits as they can enhance the absorption and bioavailability of cannabinoids, potentially resulting in a more pronounced and long-lasting effect. On top of all that, the various compounds in cannabis work together synergistically for a more well-rounded full entourage experience. So, when you're indulging in THC cannabis budder and / or wax, you're not only getting the concentrated goodness of cannabinoids but also the added benefits of those fats and lipids.
How do I use THC cannabis budder and wax?
When it comes to enjoying THC cannabis budder and wax, dabbing is where it's at. You heat up a special dab rig or vaporizer, then apply a small amount of the concentrate onto the heated surface. It instantly vaporizes, and you inhale the heavenly vapor for a powerful and fast-acting high.
Can you eat THC wax?
THC cannabis budder and wax are typically designed for inhalation methods like dabbing and vaporizing, where the concentrated cannabinoids are vaporized and inhaled. While it's technically possible to consume them orally, it's not the most efficient or recommended method. When consumed orally, THC cannabis budder and wax need to go through the digestive system before entering the bloodstream, which can result in delayed onset and potentially inconsistent effects. Additionally, the high concentration of cannabinoids in these concentrates may lead to very intense and overwhelming experiences when consumed orally. If you're looking to consume THC orally, it's recommended to explore our specifically formulated edible products that are designed for oral consumption and offer accurate dosing information. These products have undergone processes that make them suitable for safe ingestion.
Does THC wax lose its potency?
Yes, over time, THC wax can lose its potency. This process can be accelerated by factors like exposure to heat, light, and air. Here's why:
- Heat: High temperatures can cause THC to degrade into CBN (cannabinol), a less psychoactive cannabinoid. While CBN has some potential therapeutic properties of its own, the product won't have the same effects as it did when the THC content was higher.
- Light: Ultraviolet light can degrade cannabinoids, including THC. This is one reason why many cannabis products are sold in opaque or UV-protected packaging.
- Air: Exposure to oxygen can lead to the oxidation of THC, which can also reduce its potency.
How much should I use?
Start low, go slow! If you're new to budder and wax, use just a tiny amount, like a grain of rice, and see how it hits you. You can always increase the dosage slowly if needed. These concentrates are seriously potent, so take it easy and find your sweet spot.
