We know that candles are made of wax. There are also other common uses for wax like crayons, beeswax and even everyday lip balm uses wax. With CBD the extracts will form as an opaque oil. These oils are more solidified (resulting from a crystallization of the oils) than most typical oils. With regards to CBD wax, however, like most waxes, it can take on a varying number of forms.
The “purging” process is what defines the variations in the texture, moisture and various aspects of the resulting wax. Purging hemp-based CBD is essentially a crystallization process of nucleated fat lipids.
Using CBD Wax
Is it edible? Is it effective topically, will my skin absorb it? How do us use CBD wax exactly?
While wax is edible, oil is likely a better and healthier option. Provided the wax form contains some acting solvent, yes your skin can absorb it. There are specific products on the market for just that purpose. Typically speaking, if the wax isn’t specified for or designed to be a type of rub or ointment, it is likely intended for vaping.
Vaping CBD Wax
If you vape or if you are familiar with the CBD or hemp world, the term “dabbing” is something you are probably familiar with or know about. It is simply the process of heating the wax and placing a small pellet-sized amount on your pen coil. The wax then vaporizes upon heating and hence, users are now vaping as the inhale.
What is the Best CBD Wax for You?
Everyone is different, from our chemistry to our DNA to how our body processes and digests, which means the best wax form for you will most likely depend on you. Experiment with what best works for you and what techniques have the most desired impact. Vape, roll, oils or ointments – your body and how you respond will tell you what works – and what works best.
CBD oils and isolates are the initial result of extracting CBD from the plant. While these oils are then purged to produce wax, the potency remains intact and the effectiveness of oil versus wax is dependent on the user.
CBD wax is just another way to experience the benefits of this amazing new industry and it could be the best way for you to experience CBD – but that’s for you to decide. Wax, Budder or Crumble – there is likely a CBD product perfect for you!
