What is cannabis wax? How to smoke wax?

Introduction to Cannabis Wax

Cannabis wax, also known as weed wax or marijuana wax, is a highly concentrated form of cannabis. It is usually made by extracting the psychoactive compound THC from the plant using a solvent like butane or CO2. The end result is a sticky and potent substance that can contain up to 80% THC, making it much more potent than traditional forms of cannabis consumption.

Types of Cannabis Wax

There are several types of cannabis wax available on the market, each with its unique consistency and texture. Some of the most common types include:

  • Budder: This type has a soft and butter-like consistency.
  • Honeycomb: As the name suggests, this type resembles a honeycomb and has a crumbly texture.
  • Crumble: Similar to honeycomb, but with a drier and more brittle texture.
  • Shatter: This type has a glass-like appearance and is very potent.

How to Smoke Cannabis Wax

Smoking cannabis wax requires some special equipment and techniques compared to traditional methods of smoking cannabis. Here are the steps on how to smoke cannabis wax:

  1. Get a dab rig. A dab rig is a specially designed water pipe used for consuming THC concentrates like wax. It consists of a nail, which is heated using a blowtorch, and a dome that captures the vapor.
  2. Heat up the nail. Use your blowtorch to heat up the nail until it turns red hot. Then, let it cool down for a few seconds.
  3. Apply the wax to the nail. Using a dabber tool, place a small amount of wax onto the heated nail.
  4. Inhale through the mouthpiece while touching the wax to the nail. As you touch the wax to the hot nail, it will vaporize and produce smoke that you can inhale through the mouthpiece.
  5. Exhale and enjoy! Exhale slowly and savor the potent effects of cannabis wax.

Other Ways to Consume Cannabis Wax

Aside from using a dab rig, there are other ways to consume cannabis wax:

  • Vaporizers: Portable vaporizers designed for concentrates can also be used to smoke cannabis wax.
  • Dab pens: These are smaller, pen-shaped vaporizers that allow for discreet consumption of wax.
  • Edibles: You can also infuse cannabis wax into edibles like brownies or cookies for a potent and long-lasting high.

Benefits and Risks of Smoking Cannabis Wax

Smoking cannabis wax offers several benefits, such as:

  • Potency: As mentioned earlier, wax contains higher concentrations of THC compared to traditional forms of cannabis consumption, making it more potent and providing a stronger high.
  • Discreetness: Using a dab pen or portable vaporizer allows for discreet consumption in public settings.

However, there are also potential risks associated with smoking cannabis wax, including:

  • Strong high: The potency of wax can be overwhelming for some individuals, leading to negative side effects such as anxiety and paranoia.
  • Exposure to solvents: If not properly extracted, traces of the solvent used in the extraction process may remain in the wax and can potentially harm your health when smoked.


Cannabis wax is a highly concentrated form of cannabis that offers a potent and unique experience. With its various types, methods of consumption, and potential risks, it’s essential to educate yourself before trying it. Remember always to use cannabis products responsibly and legally according to your state’s laws. So go ahead and explore the world of cannabis wax, but remember to consume it safely and responsibly! Happy dabbing!
