Over the years, Berkeley marijuana enthusiasts found ways on how to fully take advantage of the cannabis plant. People smoke, inhale, drink, and even eat food containing marijuana. One of the emerging ways of marijuana intake is the use of marijuana wax which is also said to be the strongest form of marijuana that you can take. It is so strong that a single use of the wax is equivalent to more or less 15 to 20 joints. Yes, it is that strong.
Marijuana wax is also known as honeycomb, butter, or just simply wax and it got its aliases because of its appearance. It is made from the concentrate of the cannabis plant and involves quite a complicated and dangerous process to finally get the finished product.
The Making of Marijuana Wax
The purpose of explaining how the wax is made is only for you to have an idea how but not to encourage you to actually do it. The process involves packing buds of marijuana into a tube and then blasting it with butane. Butane is a highly flammable liquid so it should be handled carefully. There were instances of wax explosion in the past so it is not really advisable for amateurs to try making a marijuana wax at home.
What happens during the blasting process is that THC or tetrahydrocannabinol is extracted and what comes out is a really concentrated form. It is thick, waxy, and highly hallucinogenic. The concentrated extract is called BHO which stands for butane hash oil or butane honey oil.
How is Marijuana Wax Used?
Marijuana wax can be consumed using a water pipe (bong) or by using a vaporizer. When using a bong, the process is called dabbing. Basically, you dab wax on a blow-torched nail and inhale the smoke slowly, like you would in a regular bong. A vaporizer turns the wax into vapor for pure THC satisfaction.
There are also some who dabs a little of the concentrate in their joints but it is not very common. Best results are still achieved when consumed using a water pipe or an oil rig.
Dangers and Controversies Involving Marijuana Wax
As mentioned earlier, the cannabis concentrate is highly hallucinogenic probably because of its high THC content. There have been reports of hallucinations on both teens and adults as a result of irresponsible use of wax. They were hospitalized and had to be sedated because they were agitated and could not be controlled.
There are also reported incidents of fire caused by amateurs trying to make their own marijuana wax. There was even a case which involved teens aged 15 to 18 years who blew up windows in the condominium where they had their makeshift lab. That incident sent them to the hospital. In Berkeley, California, a resident was busted when he accidentally started a fire in a backyard. The fire was caused by illegally operating a drug laboratory. That is one of the reasons why in California, it may be legal to possess marijuana, including marijuana wax, but it is illegal to make it there.
The bottom line here is that the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes may be legalized in most states but it requires us to be responsible users too. Our Berkeley MMJ delivery provider Bayshore Medical has a wide inventory of different waxs and cannabis strains.
