First Thing's First: What Is Wax?

What is Wax

Wax is a concentrated form of cannabis. This means that it has higher THC levels than other forms of cannabis.

Wax is a type of BHU (Butane Hash Oil). The process to make wax extracts cannabinoid and terpene oils from cannabis buds and trimmings using butane. This might sound simple, but it takes a lot of skill to do this properly. 

Because of this process, wax comes in many different consistencies. It may be runny and liquid, solid and brittle, or somewhere in-between. But, despite the difference in texture, the compounds that make up wax only vary slightly.

Different Ways to Smoke Wax

There are many different ways to smoke wax. Using a glass rig, bong, or bowl is the most familiar method, but there are several other ways to get creative.

You can also smoke wax in a joint, which is familiar to most cannabis smokers, too. However, it must but rolled in a specific way in order to have the full effect.

Dab pens are all the rage because they make smoking wax easy and efficient. These are portable vape pens that use wax cartridges. While they are easier, it's often more expensive to use a vape pen for wax.

The bong, bowl, joint, and vape pen are the most standard methods for smoking wax. 

If you don't have access to any of these methods, you can also try your luck with the knife method. 

You can also smoke wax using:
  • Nectar Collectors
  • Wax Vaporizers
  • E-nails

We will talk about these three more efficient methods for smoking wax in a moment. But first, we need to cover how sugar wax is different from other types of concentrated cannabis. 

How Is Sugar Wax Different From Other Marijuana Concentrates?

Sugar wax is different from other marijuana concentrates because of its sappy, wet texture. What are some other forms of concentrates? Edibles like brownies, cookies, or gummies fall into this category.

These other edible concentrates are different because when you consume them it typically takes longer for the cannabis to take effect. Sugar wax takes effect quickly regardless of what method you use to smoke it. 

Step-by-Step: How to Smoke Wax

Now, let's discuss three methods of smoking wax that are highly efficient. Here's a step-by-step guide for each.

Smoke Wax Using a Nectar Collector

Smoke Wax Using a Nectar Collector

First, the nectar collector. This tool is great for wax consistencies that can be spread out flat. 

Step 1: Find a Clean Surface

You'll need a clean, heat-resistant surface to use this tool. You can buy these in quartz, glass, or silicone specifically for this type of smoking.

Step 2: Spread Your Wax Out Flat

Next, take a small dab of your wax and spread it out. Use your own judgment to determine how much you want to apply to the heat-resistant surface.

If you're new to smoking wax, it might be best to start small.

Step 3: Heat up the Nail 

Now it's time to head up the nail of your nectar collector. Use a blowtorch or a lighter to heat it up to your desired temperature. 

Step 4: Smoke

Once the nail is hot, press your lips to the mouthpiece and drag the nail across the wax. It will immediately vaporize when you do this, so be sure to inhale for the entire time.

Smoke Wax Using a Concentrate Vaporizer

Now let's learn how to use the concentrate vaporizer. This process is slightly easier than using the nectar collector because you don't have to heat anything up using a lighter or blowtorch.

Step 1: Heat up Your Wax

This involves scooping a dab of wax into a heating chamber or spreading it onto heating coils, depending on what kind of concentrate vaporizer you have. Turn the vaporizer on and set it to your chosen temperature. 

Step 2: Smoke

Yup, it's that easy. Once your wax heats up all you have to do is use the mouthpiece to inhale the vapor that is produced.

Smoke Wax Using an E-Nail

Finally, let's talk about the e-nail. This device is used with a rig to help with the heating process.

Step 1: Set Up Your Rig

Have your rig ready to go. You'll use it the same way you would if you weren't using an e-nail to heat up the nail.

Step 2: Heat up the Nail

Using the e-nail, it's time to heat up your nail. In order to do this, you'll use the e-nails interface to select the temperature you want to heat it up to. 

Step 3: Smoke

Once your nail is heated up, scoop a bit of your dab and spread it on the nail as you inhale.
