If you have the desire to dab, then you’re probably going to want a gram of wax to vaporize. But what kind should you get and what’s it going to cost you?
Perhaps you’re about to pick up the phone to order a dank delivery. Or maybe you’re fixing to drive over to the stoner store. Before you do either, you might want some knowledge. Knowledge about what? Why, about the very wax you seek.
You really should know what kind of cannabis concentrate you want. That’s because dispensaries usually have a variety to choose from.
And it’d be useful to understand the potency of the wax you want. How does it compare to smoking leaf?
A final thing to find out is how much the wax will cost. And does your budget allow for just 1 gram or as many as 8?
If you have an idea of the type, effects, and price then there’s something else that may interest you. That would be how to save some money on your potent pot purchase.
Interested? Then read on.
Wax is a somewhat generic term for cannabis concentrates. There are a variety of different kinds of waxes. Many have different means of production and unique appearances. All of them are potent pot solids most often used in dabbing.
Concentrates tend to have THC levels of between 60 and 90 percent.
Some weed waxes are made with chemical solvents. Others are solventless. The latter uses non-chemical extraction methods involving temperature and pressure.
What are some varieties of dabs that you need to know about?
Another form of concentrated ganja is vaporizer cartridges. Those, though, are filled with cannabis oil. Arguably, you could consider oil a form of liquid wax.
Okay, now that you have an idea of what waxes there are, how do they compare to plain old flower?
Obviously, waxes are called concentrates for a reason. They have generally much higher percentages of THC than flower. Thus, it makes sense that it takes a lot more flower to make a little wax. How much more?
Well, if you’re going to make your own stuff then you can expect about 2-7 grams of concentrate from an ounce of nugs.
That may seem like an awful lot of leaf for a little wax, but keep in mind the difference in concentration.
Raw marijuana bud has THC levels of around 15-25% THC. It can go even higher but the botanical limit for THC percentage in plants seems to be 35%. For higher levels than that, you need concentrates.
Depending on how strong of an effect you seek, you can make a little of the stronger stuff go a long way. Or you can get extremely buzzed by dabbing away.
But a gram of ground greens is not going to get you as phenomenally high as a gram of shatter or budder.
Now, what about pricing? How much are you going to pay for dabbing solids?
Lots of things can affect pot prices.
Potency is probably one of the biggest factors in the cost of buying any kind of bud product. For example, premium or top-shelf flower tends to cost more. They also often have more THC than lower-tiered alternatives.
Stoner solids have higher rates of psychotropic chemicals, too. So how does that translate when it comes to cost?
Well if you want to compare bud to wax, we can show you a few examples:
As you can see, a gram-sized amount of concentrate is going to cost you somewhere between $25 - $40. Now, there are sometimes price breaks for buying more. Even better, there are promotions that encourage you to buy extra.
For instance, Seed Cannabis Co in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has a buy-2-get-1-free concentrates promo.
Buy 2, Get 1 FREE - All Concentrates, Cartridges, Tinctures & Topicals | Tulsa | Seed Cannabis Co
So, for every two, with an extra jar of wax you could get over eight grams for the cost of six.
