What is CBD Wax
If you are reading this article, you are already familiar with CBD. You probably have at least heard of it, and you probably at least have a vague idea of just how popular the product has become.
Indeed, in the last few years, that popularity has exploded. Recent estimates hold that 1 in 3 Americans have tried CBD, and 2 in 3 are familiar with CBD.
That being said, having heard of CBD and knowing what it is - and what its benefits are - are two very different things.
One of the reasons CBD is so popular is because it is such a flexible substance. It is available in various flavors and types, including tinctures, lotions, edibles, creams, and more. It is also becoming increasingly available in many more alternative products, including bath balms.
One of the newer types of CBD lately is CBD Wax. Since it is so fresh and unique, many people - even CBD users - haven't heard of the substance. As such, we're going to spend some time taking a closer look at what CBD Wax is and how it may be able to help you.
What is CBD Wax?
CBD wax is one of the many ways CBD can now be used by individuals who want to ingest the product. The process itself is relatively simple: CBD is extracted and goes through various manufacturing processes that turn it into a waxy form. Some forms of CBD market themselves as mimicking forms of marijuana, but most are simply a new and creative way of consuming CBD.
As the name implies, the result of this particular manufacturing process is a hard, wax-like process. CBD wax can come in many flavors, strengths, and varieties.
It is worth noting that CBD wax is usually very heavily concentrated. This means that a relatively small amount of the substance can result in some very significant sensations for users. If you are using CBD wax for the first time, lower is better.
You never want to start using any form of CBD by immediately ingesting heavy amounts. Instead, start with the manufacturer's recommended dosage of the substance. If you don't feel any effects, you can slowly increase the amount of CBD you are taking.
How Can You Use CBD Wax?
Like other forms of CBD, CBD Wax is a very flexible substance. You can use it in many ways, including:
- Dabbing: Dabbing is among the more popular ways of using CBD wax. It would be best if you had a dab rig. This rig will turn the CBD into a vapor, and you can then inhale the vapor.
- Smoking: Smoking, of course, means placing the wax in some sort of device that can transform it into steam or smoke. You then inhale the smoke. This is a relatively fast way of consuming CBD, as it allows the CBD to get to your bloodstream quickly. There are a couple of forms of smoking CBD. You can place it in a bowl, or you can put it in a vaporizer.
What Varieties of CBD Wax are Available?
There are many types of CBD wax that can be used in the marketplace today. Like most CBD, it comes in Full or Broad Spectrum.
Full and Broad Spectrum are the two most popular forms of CBD that are used today. They are mainly identical: Both Full and Broad Spectrum have levels of cannabinoids, terpenes, and flavonoids. The critical difference is THC. THC - short for tetrahydrocannabinol - is a specific type of cannabinoid.
Even many people who have not heard of CBD are familiar with THC, the active ingredient in marijuana that causes intoxication.
Per the 2018 Farm Bill, CBD can contain limited amounts of THC - no more than .3%. Some people prefer CBD that contains little THC. This CBD is known as Full Spectrum CBD. Others do not enjoy THC, don't want it, or fear the possibility of a failed drug test that can come with Full Spectrum CBD. In that case, they may prefer Broad Spectrum CBD.
Full and Broad Spectrum CBD can both be found in CBD waxes. Furthermore, there are a variety of CBD wax flavors. This includes a variety of candy or mint flavors. You can also get them in a flavorless format.
As noted above, CBD wax tends to be highly concentrated, thus making it a stronger version of CBD. You should pay attention to the potency of the CBD, represented in the "mg" on the package. This will tell you how many milligrams of CBD is in the dose of CBD you are about to consume.
Pay attention to this number. If you have tried CBD in the past, you may know what level of CBD you have the most familiarity with. Keep in mind that this form of CBD is more potent, so you may feel it differently.
Other CBD Considerations
Always talk with your doctor. You may be on medication that may interact poorly with CBD, and your doctor should be able to tell you this. Remember that this isn't exclusive to CBD: You'd want to speak with your doctor before starting any supplement.
Furthermore, some CBD vendors have made a bad practice of lying about the contents of their CBD, with previous studies finding that relatively high numbers of CBD vendors fail to label their CBD products accurately. This helps explain why you absolutely must only buy a CBD product that has a Certificate of Analysis.
This certificate will have the results of an independent lab that tested a CBD product. The results of a certificate can show precisely what is in the product and at what levels. A Certificate of Analysis can give you comfort that the CBD you are buying is accurately labeled.
CBD comes in many forms - but CBD wax hits different. It is stronger, more potent, more concentrated, and can give you a different CBD experience than you may be used to. Its flexibility, variety of forms, and various flavors can all help you enjoy CBD in a very different way.
As such, if you are looking for a new CBD experience, you may want to consider trying CBD wax.
