    CBD’s popularity has risen dramatically in recent years. There has been a “cult-like” following concerning CBD, with many avid users explaining the benefits of cannabinoids. The legalization of hemp in 2018 could be the cause for all the excitement since hemp extracts such as CBD were declared federally legal Herein is all you need to know about CBD wax, a novel product, including its legality, benefits, and how to extract it

    CBD comes in various forms, such as tinctures, gummies, capsules, oils, vapes, and topicals. However, other forms of CBD are more concentrated than conventional CBD, such as CBD wax. This form has a relatively higher potency of CBD, and you would need a lesser amount to dispense intensively relaxing properties. This product has various benefits. For example, people inhale CBD wax since the bioavailability is increased because the CBD is not processed by the digestive system. This article explains the concentration of CBD in CBD wax, among other concerns.

    What is CBD wax?

    CBD wax is a highly concentrated type of CBD. You only need a small amount to feel its heightened therapeutic effects. CBD wax comes in several forms, such as CBD crumble, shatter, live resin, and budder

    According to Hauser et al. (2017), CBD is a non-psychoactive chemical compound present in hemp. Therefore, CBD does not have any intoxicating effects. In contrast, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) is responsible for the high sensation experienced after using cannabis. It is prevalent in marijuana.

    Terpenes and flavonoids are other essential chemical compounds present in hemp. According to Wu et al. (2021), terpenes have anti-depressant properties that help reduce anxiety and improve mood. Moreover, terpenes have anti-inflammatory properties that reduce muscle pain and inflammation.

    CBD wax: Is it Legal?

    The Farm Bill was passed in 2018, and this legislation led to the removal of hemp from the legal definition of marijuana. It was established that hemp would become federally legal since it had no intoxicating effects. On the flip side, states developed laws that would regulate the use of CBD in individual states. Currently, seventeen states have legalized CBD for medical and recreational use

    CBD wax: How does it make you feel?

    CBD wax offers a relaxing, stress-relieving feeling. According to Cooray et al. (2020), CBD wax interacts with the endocannabinoid system in the brain, which is integral in regulating homeostatic processes, sleep, anxiety levels, and mood. Therefore, CBD wax helps relieve pain by interacting with CB1 receptors in the spine, leading to the transmission of impulses to the brain, and later to the affected area.

    Additionally, CBD interacts with the endocannabinoid system, triggering the higher production of serotonin. Therefore, anxiety levels are reduced, and your mood is improved. According to Kuhathasan et al. (2019), you would get a good night’s sleep since CBD triggers the production of the melatonin hormone. This hormone triggers the brain to fall asleep at night. Higher melatonin levels induce the brain to fall into a deep sleep, leading to mind and body restoration.

    CBD wax can make you feel drowsy. This can be attributed to the high potency levels of CBD wax. If you are a new CBD user, it is advisable to take small doses. If you opt to inhale wax CBD, take small puffs

    What concentration of CBD is in wax?

    CBD wax often comes in three concentrations: 15mg/serving, 30mg/serving and 45mg/serving. Normally, the total concentration ranges from 400mg – 1300mg. Manufacturers often use bottles that have a maximum capacity of 30ml. 

    CBD wax comes in three strengths: full-spectrum, broad-spectrum, and CBD isolate

    Full-spectrum CBD exhibits the entourage effect since it contains all chemical compounds present in cannabis, such as CBD, CBG, THC, flavonoids, and terpenes. However, THC levels are usually low (0.3%) to avoid intoxicating effects. The entourage effect is a phenomenon whereby the chemical compounds in the wax, work synergically to heighten the effects of CBD wax.

    Broad-spectrum CBD is similar to full-spectrum CBD. However, this strength does not contain THC. Athletes prefer using broad-spectrum CBD since it may not test positive during a drug test, as drug tests aim to determine the presence of psychoactive THC in the body

    CBD isolate is usually the purest form of CBD since all other chemical compounds have been extracted from it.

    CBD wax: How to extract it

    Alcohol and CO2 extraction is the most common methods of extracting CBD wax.

    CO2 Extraction

    In this method, higher temperatures and higher pressure are used to pull out essential oils such as terpenes from CBD. CO2 extraction requires higher expertise since the process is thorough. This extraction method has grown popular among manufacturers since CBD wax remains pure.

    Alcohol Extraction

    This extraction method is easier and more resourceful. Butane is used to pull out essential oils such as flavonoids. However, butane is usually toxic to humans. Moreover, the residual solvent could be left behind after the extraction process, which would contaminate the CBD wax. Learn more about will using cbd wax make me high?

    How to use CBD wax

    If you wish to inhale CBD wax, you should begin with small puffs, especially if you are a new user. CBD wax is normally inhaled into the lungs using a dab rig. Dab rigs come in multiple shapes and sizes. These dab rigs (vape oil pens) are usually rechargeable, although some are disposable. Refillable dab rigs have various atomizers, while disposable dab rigs have a prefilled tank and coil. While inhaling CBD wax, ensure you maintain favorable temperatures within your dab rig. Temperatures above 3500 F can cause damage to your lungs and throat

    CBD has become a renowned product over recent years. Its therapeutic effects, such as relieving anxiety and stress and reducing muscle pain and inflammation, have proven instrumental in improving our health. CBD wax has higher concentrations of CBD; therefore, you would only need smaller amounts of CBDA to experience heightened effects.

    CBD wax usually has a total concentration of about 400mg-1300mg. If you are a new user of CBD wax, start using smaller doses of CBD wax to avoid effects such as drowsiness. Moreover, if you prefer vaping CBD wax, purchase high-quality vape pens since low-quality vape pens pose health risks to your lungs, as the substances in the vape pens are normally overheated. Ensure that your CBD wax has less than 0.3% THC and that it has undergone intensive laboratory testing.
