Concentrates come in many, many varieties. So let's dive into the differences between budder, crumble, shatter, CO2 oil, rosin, live resin, bubble hash, and sift. Today: budder wax.
Have you ever heard of cannabis budder wax?
It is a cannabis concentrate that is also called wax, or in that case Budder Wax. Budder Wax is currently one of the most popular cannabis concentrates.
How is Budder Wax made?
Budder wax is a concentrate made from cannabis. It is, therefore, a very strong, concentrated form. It is extracted with the help of butane or CO2. A chemical solvent is, as it were, blown through the marijuana, whereby the THC is extracted from it.
After this extraction process, the product is cleaned by means of heat and air pressure and thus the chemical solvent is removed.
This same process is also used to make other cannabis concentrates, but they all differ slightly so the end result - the actual concentrate - is also different in shape and smell, but also in its effect when you consume it.
Budder wax is formed when the extracted cannabinoids are crystallized. By rinsing it at a higher temperature or beating it as a batter in the middle or at the end of the purification, a waxy substance is formed.
The subtle beating of the concentrate and the maintenance of a specific cleaning process can create beautiful varieties of budder.
Note: It is not recommended to try to make budder wax at home. Butane and other solvents are dangerous and can cause explosions.
