Wax, also known as butane hash oil (BHO), is a type of cannabis concentrate. It’s made by extracting THC (the psychoactive compound in cannabis) from the plant using a solvent, usually butane. The process leaves behind a sticky, waxy substance that’s highly potent.
What Equipment Do You Need?
To smoke wax, you’ll need a few essential pieces of equipment:- A dab rig: This is a specialized pipe designed for smoking concentrates. It typically consists of a water pipe, a nail (made of glass, titanium, or quartz), and a dome (optional).- A dab tool: This is a small metal tool used to scoop up the wax and place it on the nail.- A torch: You’ll need a torch to heat up the nail. A handheld butane torch is the most common type used for dabbing.- A carb cap (optional): This helps regulate the airflow and retains the heat, allowing for a smoother hit.
