Smoking weed isn’t just a simple hobby for all of us; it is the manifestation of how we express our gratitude to all of the incredible benefits of marijuana.
Marijuana is one of the most common recreational drugs used to alter a person’s state of mind. It is often used to achieve immediate feelings of euphoria, also known as the “high.”.
As admirers of smoking pot, we know that the sensation is leading us all to run into new experiences and new interests in cannabis concentrate that goes by various names, including dabs, butane hash oil, shatter, and weed wax. In this article, we will find out what is the drug wax made of and how to make marijuana wax.
Heaps of people who adore smoking pot may or may not know how to make wax out from weed.
To those who don’t know, who are passionately curious, you may have noticed some appealing photos of an excellent honey-like form and pondered How to make marijuana wax? Or how do people make wax from marijuana?
Over the past years, a new form of marijuana has been introduced to the market called marijuana “wax”, and this type is probably the highest you could ever get from weed.
Before making marijuana wax, first, let’s have a short lesson of what it is by definition. Weed wax or dabs is resin extracted from marijuana which is potent and concentrated.
It is usually smoked or vaporized (though sometimes the purest forms are ingested).
People smoke it, use water pipes, or vaporize when they make THC wax for personal use or purchase it from a vendor. Some simply smoke it from a bong like a regular weed. (NCSM)
One of the utmost reason why people desires to make pot wax or buy it is that the THC (Tetrahydrocannabinol) is more concentrated.
What is a THC?
THC is the psychoactive chemical that affects how you feel by creating the “high.” But getting high is not all that it’s good. THC also has a wide range of medical benefits and is commonly reported to relieve pain, nausea, and depression, among other things. (Leaf Science)
Those who know how to make pot wax can get up to a 20% yield from their bud with pure THC making up to 80% of the return.
That is like extracting only pure THC and powerful cannabinoids and leaving all the cellulose, irritants, and sugar behind. That produces a stronger, faster, potentially cleaner and even more hallucinogenic effect. (NCSM)
How to make Marijuana Wax?
There are two basic methods to make weed wax. We highly recommend users to be keen and educate themselves on these following methods and make sure they are in legal age and is also legal in your area before trying or using them.
Method #1: Rosin-Tech
Rosin-Tech is a simple, solvent-less means of producing weed wax. We recommend this method because it is simple and does not involve solvents. It can also be done by non-professionals. And you only need the following materials:
● Parchment paper
● Razor blade
● Weed, dried bud, hash
● Flat iron, hair straightener with digital temperature display
● Oven mitten
How to make dab wax: Rosin Technique steps:
1. Begin by trying 2 grams broken into four pieces
2. Heat flat iron to 330
3. Fold your unsticky parchment paper in half, place your half gram nugget in the middle
4. Use your mitten, and press the nugget for 3 seconds.
5. Carefully remove. There will be a small resin stain made from the bud. Now move the bud to another spot and press again for 3 seconds to make another stain.
6. Your bud should be rather thin, and you should have two good stains of resin with a good yield.
7. Use your razor blade to scrape away the stains of rosin, and they are ready to smoke!
This method is incredibly simple and can be used by the casual user at home; however, professionals also use large presses with the same process to produce large quantities of quality resin which is solvent-free and just as stable as butane-extracted weed wax.
Method #2: Solvent Methods: Butane Hash Oil (BH0)
The most popular solvent method is done using butane as a solvent. It produces excellent yields but is more complicated and a bit less safe for beginners than Rosin-Tech. We will give a general overview of how this is done, but doing it will require outside research on this site and elsewhere and a broad knowledge of chemistry.
The use of flammable butane can cause burns, fires, and explosions. This should be tried only by well-supplied professionals with the use of butane done just outside, as the flammable gas can settle and ignite in enclosed spaces.
Here’s what you need:
● razor blade
● 1 oz. of weed
● Extraction tube, from a headshop
● Parchment paper
● Butane canister
● Dish, Pyrex
● Electric range
● Double boiler
● single-stage vacuum pump, 3cfm
This next method should only be tried by real professionals in locations where it is legal. However, for a more safer procedure, we do recommend the Rosin-Tech method, for its is equally or more effective and carries no risk of contamination with solvents and or other accidents.
Butane Hash Oil (BH0) steps:
Step 1. Pack your weed in the extractor
The extractor should have a significant hole at one end, and several holes and a filter at the other end. You can purchase this from a head shop or online. Grind your weed and pack it tight into the extractor.
Step 2. Spray your butane into the packed extractor
Go outside and spray the whole 8 to 12 oz. can of butane into the large hole of your weed packed extractor, with the other end aimed down at your pyrex dish. This will catch the dripping shatter, bho, or solvent-made weed wax.
It will pass through the filter and out the holes into the dish. The butane is flammable, and any spark can ignite an explosion so complete this step far away from any building or material which may catch fire.
Step 3. Entirely evaporate the butane with your double boiler till it’s only weed wax
Place your Pyrex dish atop the double filled boiler on the range, preferably outside or in a fire-safe location. The butane is still flammable and should meet no flames so don’t use a gas stove or any ignition. Preferably, the electric range placed outside or warm water brought from the kitchen and out into the boiler can be used. The butane evaporates at room temperature.
The boiler should be outside on a safe surface to flamelessly heat the Pyrex dish with warm water and cause the butane to evaporate out of the weed wax. When the wax stops bubbling, the butane is evaporated. Make sure all the butane is evaporated to make your weed wax pure and safe.
Now you should have a semi-solid waxy resin which is mostly a finished product, but to be on the safe side, proceed to the next step.
Step 4. Use your vacuum pump to clear away the rest of the butane
To be specific your weed wax is butane free, use your single-stage vacuum pump to suck out the remaining air and butane from your now perfectly pure weed wax. The last step is to enjoy your powerful weed wax!
So before choosing your most preferred method, be sure to examine yourself and the place where you are. In the way of measuring your capability of doing the procedure safely and making sure that you are doing it at the right place where it is legal.
