What Is CBD Wax?

What Is CBD Wax?

CBD Wax is a concentrated cannabis extract that contains high amounts of CBD. This extract comes in different forms and may be flavored.   
CBD Wax is typically used for dabbing.

With the rise in popularity of cannabidiol (CBD) products, many people have already heard of CBD oil. However, people who are still new to the industry may be unfamiliar with the other forms of CBD available to them, like CBD Wax for instance.

Wax On, Wax Off

Cannabidiol Life’s CBD Wax is available in four bright terpene flavors to suit all your vape and dabbing needs.

So, what exactly is CBD wax, anyway? 

Simply put, it’s a waxy CBD concentrate. No, you wouldn’t want to make a candle out of it, but in most cases the consistency is similar to that of other wax-like products that you may already be familiar with, like lip balm. CBD concentrates are created by a purification process called degasification.

In this process, cannabis extract is poured onto trays and loaded into a vacuum oven. The machine then proceeds to vacuum out residual hydrocarbons as they boil off. It is a finicky process, but the resulting extracts can have physical properties that can vary dramatically depending on the starting materials used.

Certain strains of cannabis are more stable than others, so when they go through the degasification process, the resulting extract is very hard, and glass-like. Whereas, different strains with higher terpenoid profiles, can come out more fluid-like, and pour thickly like honey. In almost all cases however, the wax variants take form as an opaque substance that is more solidified than your typical CBD oil. 

Most manufacturers market their CBD concentrates as “CBD Wax or CBD Dabs”, but some don’t. Instead, you may see other names like “CBD crystals, CBD shatter, CBD resin, CBD crumble, or even CBD budder.” With so many different names, first time buyers can be left confused or overwhelmed when it comes to selecting the best CBD wax available to them, but the main thing to consider regarding all these names is that they are still CBD wax in various forms, and that the name is meant to be descriptive.

Below, we will discuss these different types of CBD wax and explain how the different names describe the various forms. 

CBD Crumble:

As the name implies, this form of CBD wax tends to break apart easily. The creation process involves the same general extraction process as other CBD concentrates, with one key difference, the CBD oil that is used has more moisture and is higher in viscosity.

The end result is a softer substance with a distinct flavor that is less sticky than some other CBD concentrates.

CBD Budder:

This variation of CBD wax is created using higher temperatures and air pressure during the extraction process. This results in a concentrate that is fluffier than others, but still retains the same potency.

Many people prefer budder for its texture, which may make it easier for use in dabbing when compared to crumble or shatter. As the name implies, budder is similar in consistency to the kind of butter one would typically use in cooking. 

 

CBD Resin:

The concentrate known as CBD resin or live resin is unique. It is created using cryogenically frozen buds, as opposed to dried or cured buds. Freezing the buds ensures a greater preservation of cannabinoids and terpenes, however this process is expensive.

While it does give the final product a more pronounced flavor, because of the cost involved users often reserve it for special occasions.

 CBD Wax Benefits:

The benefits of CBD in general aren’t exclusive to a specific product or form. Typically the use of CBD wax over CBD oil, for instance, boils down to personal preference. However, some users have reported less anxiety with wax while in stressful situations compared to when they used CBD oil. There could be multiple reasons for this, but most likely this is because CBD wax is a concentrated form of CBD, and it is usually inhaled as opposed to consumed orally.This means the felt effects would be stronger and experienced more quickly.

Consuming CBD orally means it has to be digested, so felt effects take longer to manifest when CBD is consumed in this way. Alternatively, the felt effects of consuming CBD orally tend to last longer than those from vaping, but can also be less intense. It is also possible to use CBD wax as an edible, but is generally not recommended. Clinical studies have revealed that CBD could be effective in treating a wide range of both physical and mental conditions.

However, it’s best to do your own research on CBD regarding the symptoms you are hoping to alleviate, so that you can make an educated decision on which product will best suit your needs.Everyone’s physiology is slightly different, so some personal experimentation may be required to discover what works best for you. Whatever you decide, make sure you buy from a reputable company who can verify the ingredients and quality of their products with verified third party lab test results. Always discuss taking CBD with your doctor.

What Do CBD Gummies Do?

What Do CBD Gummies Do?

CBD gummies act on the human body’s Endocannabinoid System (ECS), naturally present in all mammals, which helps promote bodily “homeostasis” or a balanced state of well being. 

Of all the CBD products on the market, CBD gummies are probably the most popular, but why? Well, in addition to tasting great, CBD gummies are a fantastic way to get your daily recommended dose of CBD in one discreet and delicious package!

These edibles are typically produced the same way as regular gummies, except that they are generally infused with CBD oil. Typically, CBD oil is extracted from cannabis plants with low THC content and a high concentration of CBD, or cannabidiol. CBD products do make the user feel ‘high’ like medicinal marijuana does, but they still provide the curative benefits of cannabis.

What is CBD?

For those that are not aware, CBD stands for cannabidiol. Cannabidiol is a chemical compound that is commonly found in cannabis plants. It can be extracted from both marijuana and hemp plants and can be made into edibles, tinctures, body oils, salves, balms, and more.

Generally speaking, industrial hemp is used for CBD oil extraction, as opposed to marijuana. This is because hemp typically contains only small traces of THC. CBD is federally legal in all 50 states, but the THC content must be less than 0.3% in states that have not legalized the use of marijuana for recreational purposes. Cannabidiol is easy to extract because it dominates the cannabis plant’s genetic profile.

Due to recent legislation making industrial hemp legal, many scientists are now engaged in new research to study the numerous positive effects of cannabidiol on our physical and mental well-being. Some researchers even believe that CBD could be the most important cannabinoid ever discovered.  Currently, there is only one cannabidiol based drug approved by the FDA, but with luck, new groundbreaking studies will conclusively prove the medical benefits of this compound once and for all for a host of conditions.

How Do CBD Gummies Work?

Cannabinoids interact with receptors in the human body to regulate a number of functions such as mood, appetite, pain, sleep and the stress response. These receptors make up what’s known as the endocannabinoid system, or ECS for short. The ECS was discovered in the late 1980s and appears to promote harmony or synergy among our body’s other systems, such as the nervous and digestive.  This process is known as homeostasis and is considered the main factor in the overall balance between the body’s various systems.

Some people who use CBD gummies as an alternative to certain medications, or other treatments with negative side effects, are claiming amazing results. People use CBD for conditions like chronic pain, inflammation, anxiety, depression, and sleep disorders. In fact, cannabis has so many potential uses as a relief supplement, it’s now being hailed as a “miracle plant” by a growing number of patients.

In reality, there’s nothing miraculous about these gummies compared to any other CBD supplement, but they have had incredible results for some people. Just check our reviews here! Many civilizations have been using cannabis for thousands of years as a remedy for various conditions. Now CBD alone is showing the same promising results. CBD gummies and other edibles may even become the next big breakthrough in physical and mental health.
