What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

What is weed wax and shatter and why does it get you so high?

Things have changed regarding marijuana since I started toking in the 70’s. Nowadays there is lingo such as Shatter, Wax, Honeycomb, Crumble, Sap, Budder, Pull-and-Snap, Taffy, Dabbing, Vaping and others, WTF? These are just some of the slang words that cannabis extracts or concentrates have earned through their popularity in recent years. Marijuana concentrates are a complicated issue in the ever-expanding weed marketplace nowadays.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter

For those of you who are new to the concentrates game, a cannabis extract is any oil that concentrates weed’s cannabinoids like THC and CBD. These concentrates are extremely potent (they typically hover around 75% but can allegedly go as high as 90% ) and are also extremely difficult to heat up. Concentrates are the product of  cannabinoid extraction processes using a solvent such as butane. The goal of concentrates is to eliminate all plant matter and extract the resin from the plant matter.

Concentrates are made by mixing cannabis plant matter with a solvent. Then, the solution is usually strained and purged to remove all plant matter and any dangerous solvents from the product. Once the extract is purged of the solvent, usually butane, you’ll generally have a shatter-like oil. Agitating the oil through various methods makes this into a wax. It can be a dangerous process since flammables are used, so leave it to the professionals my friends.

What Is Shatter

Shatter is the product of butane hash oil extraction. It’s achieved through skillful purging of the butane and cannabis solution, often employing the use of a vacuum. The product is a clear, often yellow or orange hue. It’s very malleable, almost like taffy.

Shatter, with its beautiful amber glass transparency has a reputation for being the purest and cleanest type of extract. But translucence isn’t necessarily the tell-tale sign of quality – the consistency and texture of oil comes down to different factors entirely. The reason shatter comes out clear has to do with the molecules which, if left undisturbed, form a glass-like appearance.

Heat And Moisture

Heat, moisture, and high terpene contents can also affect the texture, turning oils into a runnier substance that resembles sap (hence the commonly used nickname “sap). Oils with a consistency that falls somewhere between glassy shatter and viscous sap is often referred to as “pull-and-snap or taffy”

What Is Weed Wax

Wax is also the product of a butane hash oil extraction. It’s often the product of a failed shatter extract, as there are still residual fats, lipids, and possibly butane left due to improper purging techniques. Weed Wax refers to the softer, opaque oils that have lost their transparency after extraction. Unlike those of transparent oils, the molecules of weed wax crystallize as a result of agitation, often through whipping the oil into a more stable consistency. Light can’t travel through irregular molecular densities, and that refraction leaves us with a solid, non-transparent oil.

Just as transparent oils span between shatter and sap, wax can also take on different consistencies based on heat, moisture, and the texture of the oil before it is purged (the process in which residual solvents are removed from the product). Runny oils with more  moisture tend to form gooey waxes often called “Budder,” while the harder ones are likely to take on a soft, brittle texture known as “crumble” or “honeycomb.” The term “wax” can be used to describe all of these softer, solid textures.

Shatter can turn to wax

Sometimes shatter will ‘wax-up after being stored over a period of time. The agitation that turns shatter to wax is occurring either because of residual solvent trying to evaporate or because of terpenes trying to evaporate. Shatter is slightly unstable and tends to degrade into budder over time.

THCA molecules tend to crystallize by coming together, but the viscous nature of the oil slows this down. Still, it eventually happens to a lot of shatter at room temperature or higher. Refrigeration is key for preserving extracts, but it needs to be done right. Improper handling upon thawing can lead to the introduction of moisture and quick  degradation of all your product.

There’s a reason cannabis extraction is now as big a part of competitive Cannabis Cups as flowers; the knowledge and care that goes into extracting oils is as complicated as the art of growing the plants they are derived from. Every step of the extraction process demands a balance of art and science, beginning with the selection of starting material and ending with the purging and storage process.

Dabbing, Vaping and more

There are many ways to consume concentrates. There are many options. It can be overwhelming to someone who just wants to give it a go, especially when it comes to purchasing equipment costing $100-plus. Also, not all ways of consuming concentrates are created equal, they all have their pros and cons for different types of users.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Vaporizing

Vaporizing is one of the healthiest methods for inhaling marijuana concentrates. You can vaporize almost any form of concentrate. Many kinds of vaporizers are sold online and at head  shops. Vaporizers are specifically manufactured to heat THC to the optimal vaporization point so you can experience the purest high without unnecessary waste or toxins.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Dabbing

Dabbing is quickly becoming one of the most popular methods for consuming marijuana concentrates. Special ‘dab rigs‘ provide all of the required attachments you will need to “dab” with. You can also purchase bong and water pipe attachments at most head shops that replace the bowl with a “skillet” or “hash nail.

To dab, heat up the skillet using a torch, drop the concentrate onto the heated glass surface and then inhale the smoke through the chambers of the bong or rig. Dabbing burns concentrate at temperatures very close to THC’s vaporization point — making dabs one of the healthier smoking methods. However, dabbing often results in a very intense high, so we recommend only those who are veterans with marijuana to try this specific method.

What Is Weed Wax And Shatter Bowls

You can find concentrate bowl attachments for ‘bongs and ‘bubblers in most head shops or online. Place the extract at the bottom of the concentrate bowl and then heat it using a stick, known as a glass wand, which vaporizes the concentrate upon contact. Glass wands are just one form of the burning tools used for smoking concentrate out of bowls. Other heating methods fail to vaporize efficiently, which causes combustion and carcinogenic smoke.

These alternatives include soldering irons, butane lighters and hemp wicks. While hemp wicks don’t vaporize, they can help you avoid the harmful chemicals released from butane lighters.

This simplified explanation of oil consistencies and how to consume them is only a scratch on the surface of this product cannabis extracts, and it’s exciting to imagine how much further science and technology will carry its potential.

Types Of Dabs We Sell

BuyWeedOnline.ca mail order marijuana service tries our best to stock a vast selection of high grade THC extracts or formally known as “dabs”.  All our products are professionally purged with industry leading equipment.

1. 98% THC Weed Wax Dabs

THC weed wax is the most popular THC extract and is the most flavorful in my personal opinion.  THC wax must not have a milky tint to it as this simply means a presence of solvent still in the extracted THC.  Buy 98% THC Weed Wax here.

2.  99% Weed Shatter Dabs

Weed shatter is the same as THC weed wax but involves one more extra step of adding pure grain alcohol to the mixture of liquid butane and extracted THC and is then filtered multiple times threw superfine #6 coffee filters before entering the purging stage.  The addition of the second solvent “alcohol” will remove any left over THC from the casings as well as provide a more viscus liquid to filter that will not be as sticky, therefor loosing less extracted THC oil.

3.  CBD Oil Dabs

CBD oil is the easiest to make once the THC is removed from the plant.  See THC removal for more information.  CBD oils is extracted from the marijuana flowers with pure alcohol “grain alcohol is best”.  The marijuana flowers are ground up and soaked in alcohol for a period of 24hrs.  The plant material is filtered out  and the alcohol is evaporated off leaving behind the CBD oils.

4.  Bubble Hash

Bubble hash is usually made from the clippings from the marijuana plants.  Mature marijuana buds have their haircuts done over a clean sheet or tarp to ensure they don’t hit the ground.  The clippings are mixed in a bucked of ice cubes and cold water to remove the trichomes from the plant matter.  The trichomes are then collected usually using bubble bags and are compressed to make bubble hash.  Different sized bubble bags give you different quality hash depending on the mesh sizes.  Smaller mesh sizes leave behind smaller trichomes that are filled to the brim with THC while the larger trichomes can have little to no THC inside them if the marijuana grower wasn’t doing his job correctly. Click here to buy the best bubble hash dabs you have ever smoked.

5.  Rick Simpson Oil

Rick Simpson oil is made exactly the same way CBD oil is made.  The only difference is that you use dried marijuana flowers that still have THC on them.  In fact, the higher the THC level the better for these types of dabs. Basically, Rick Simpson oil is a branded name for Marijuana Bud Oil.  Its simply marijuana oil made only from the best quality buds instead of the typical weed oil that is only made with clippings.  Weed oil is not usually powerful though still contains lots of CBD and is a good substitute for CBD oil if you don’t mind a little THC.

Visual and Physical Differences

All THC extracts look, smell and taste quite different.  They all have their own distinct differences in look, smell, taste, and physical effects.  Some are more powerful and good for falling a sleep while others are better for altering your physiological and/or neurological state. “I am not a Dr.  These views are from my own personal experiences with these extracts”

1. 98% THC Weed Wax
THC Weed Wax
This blue NoGoo container is about twice the size of a toonie.  Its holding 21 grams of THC weed wax.

THC weed wax should look like a dark honey on a piece of parchment paper.  It will be much less viscous with a constancy of soft caramel.  You will break off little pieces and either roll it up in a little ball and put in your vapor pen, or take a piece off with your dabber for a nice hoot in your nail system dabbing rig.  If you do not have a nail system dabbing rig you can buy a good one for about $50.

2.  99% Weed Shatter

Sativa Weed ShatterWeed shatter is basically the same thing as weed wax but has more clarity and a sweeter taste.  Properly made weed shatter will be like a piece of colored glass that will shatter when pressed on with your dabber tool.  Its taste will be almost citrus like, the taste of pure THC.  Most of you have not experienced the true taste of pure THC.  Those of you who do not live in Vancouver or Toronto are probably only thinking they had  the real thing.  But I can 99.9% guarantee you have not.  Try it and tell me, what did you taste?  Did you taste citrus?  That’s the natural taste of pure THC.  No solvents, red hairs, or crystal casings to alter the purity of the weed shatter.

3.  CBD Oil

CBD oil is a dark black oil.  It will no viscosity and will have a deep weed smell to it but unlike the marijuana it was stripped from if that makes any sense.

4.  Bubble Hash
Buy Hash Online
Pure unprocessed bubble hash of the highest quality humanly possible to make.
Buy Hash Online
This is the same type of bubble hash as above but is worked. I don’t like this simply because someone was squishing it in their hands for along time to get it this way… What’s the point unless your trying to hide keif inside?

Bubble hash can look a few different ways.  The best bubble hash will be unworked and very rough looking.  Its basically just a bunch of high oil content THC crystals stuck together. Some people will work the crystals like doe to create a more appealing looking product that will take on a shiny look and more of a softer feel to it.  The difference is in production.  In my personal opinion, less process is better with hash.  The more its worked the less potent it is and can also mean that their is dust, dirt, and epithelial.  I prefer not to have this in my hash if possible.

5.  Rick Simpson Oil

Rick Simpson oil is a very dark oil.  It will smell like what ever bud you have made it from and is basically concentrated bud.  This branded name oil has been associated with adding in the treatment of cancer and in many personal cases have make cancer go into remission with a specific Rick Simpson Oil oral regiment lasting anywhere form 90 -180 days and increasing your dosage as much as possible ongoing.  This is also used for dabbing as it’s highly concentrated THC and CBD oil together.

Buy Dabs Online | Types Of Dabbing Rigs

Their are many types of dabbing rigs for doing you dabs.  Some of these methods are much better then others.  The below methods are the ones I know of and personally use on a regular basis.

1.  Vape Pens

G-Pen Dabbing Rig Vape Pens are the most discrete type of dabbing rig and is also the most versatile.  Unfortunately its the least efficient way of getting high from your THC extracts unless you have some crazy $300+ super charged vape pen with a  turbo charger in it.  Some of you will get lucky and find cheap ones that rock, like mine here I bought for $120 in Mark Emery’s weed shop on Hastings St in Vancouver.

2.  The Nail And Torch System

Dirty Dabbing Rig The nail and torch dabbing rig system is by far the best way to get the most out of your dabs.  This system uses a nail that is heated to over 500° Celsius and then has a special dabbing water bong that it fits into.  A glass dome is placed over the red hot nail to keep the bellowing smoke in the chamber.  Once Dabber Rig With Domethe dome is places over the nail you put your dabber laced with extract into the red hot nail burning the extract and giving you your hoot.  This is basically a water bong with a conversion kit you put into it, or you can buy specifically made dabbing rigs just for the job.

Effects Of Dabbing With THC Extracts

Dabbing with THC extracts is by far the most efficient and effective way of absorbing THC or  CBD into your body.  In stead of the traditional flower smoking, the essential THC and CBD oils are stripped from the plant throwing away the most unhealthy part of the plant.  The actual plant matter creates harmful chemicals you breathe in just as if you were to stand in front of a camp fire inhaling smoke.  The fact are that  dabbing is less harmful way to absorb large amounts of THC and CBD without having to smoke the actual marijuana flower its self.

Buy Dabs Online | How Much Do Dabs Cost?

Dabs are by far the most expensive marijuana product.  Costing as much as an expensive bottle of wine, this product is ultra powerful and will impress the most experienced of marijuana smoking connoisseurs, and heavy duty ultra stoners.  Dabs range anywhere from $50 per gram to over $100 depending on how they were made and of what quality they are.  Some dabs are made very crudely and have barely no purging if any done at all.  This will result in a very harsh product that has solvent residue and will have a less expensive price then the more expensive professionally made THC extracts.  Professionally made THC extracts such as weed wax and shatter need to be purged using equipment such as displayed here.

Where Do You Buy Dabs?

Before you buy dabs online from just anyone you need to take a few things into consideration. Can the person you are purchasing from honestly tell you what they were made from and what solvent and purging method was used.  Next time ask these four questions to your current dab dealer.

a) Is the dab wax made from Sativa or Indica
b) Is it made with alcohol, propane, butane, or a combination
c) Is it filtered or not
d) How is it purged and what is it purged with

You should only buy dabs online from reputable weed wax extract dealers such as BuyWeedOnline.ca mail order marijuana.  We purchase our dabs from a British Columbia’s leading commercial dab lab.

Our High Quality Dabs

Our dabs are of the highest quality and do not contain any solvents in a level that is high enough to consider harmful as of todays health standards.  Dabs are fairly simple to make, but extremely technical and difficult to make properly.  You must have a production line like process to ensure you are doing it safely.  You also need very expensive equipment including a vacuum chamber, electric purge vacuum, filters, pure grain alcohol, and special equipment if using propane to get the propane out of the bottle safely.  BHO butane hash oil dabs are the most commonly made simply because you don’t have to use propane.  Propane is the most volatile solvent to use and simply a scary way to make THC weed wax.

Do Not Try Unprofessionally Made Dabs!

Buy dabs online and ensure yourself that online reviews will keep them honest.  The main health information to give you regarding  Butane (BHO) or propane extracts is that if they are not professionally purged with the proper equipment you will be inhaling burning butane and propane vapor.  This I can assure you is not only bad for your health, no one really knows the long term effects of inhaling such solvents, but I can guarantee you 100% it isn’t good!  So before you cheap out or don’t want to sped the high price of $100 per gram from for professionally made dabs think about this.  Yes, the cheap stuff will get you high as heck, but think about what those solvents your smoking is doing to your brain?  Its 1000% times worse to smoke improperly made BHO then you can imagine.  Please, for health effects yet to be known, only purchase your professionally purged dabs from a reputable dab distributor like our mail order marijuana service.

Dangers Of Trying To Make Your Own Dabs

DO NOT try to make your own dabs.  BHO or formally known as “butane hash oil” is made from an extremely flammable gas that can ignite without warning with a simple static electric charge.  The same spark in your cell phone that can make gas pumps blow up can also make your BHO blow up in your face as well.  This is a guaranteed way to go to jail and probably involve not only the police, but the fire department, ambulance, insurance companies, and whole lot of grief.

Making BHO dabs produces a butane gas cloud.  If a spark or anything gets close enough you are going to blow up along with everything around you.  The other major health issue with making dabs is the solvent residue left over from the boiling off process.  Purging the solvent has many steps and required specialty equipment to properly purge the solvent from the extracted THC oil.  The actual process to making high grade professionally made dabs is a closely kept industry secret.  You can find recipes, but just save your self the trouble, risk, and embarrassment of trying to make your own dabs.
