Cannabis concentrates are in high demand, and that doesn’t seem likely to change any time soon. There are several ways to extract cannabinoids and terpenes from raw plant material, and each method produces unique results. Wax is one of the most popular cannabis concentrates because of its THC concentration, consistency, and accessibility. Having a supply of premium cannabis wax is one of the best ways to get more business for dispensaries.
Types of Cannabis Concentrates
The easiest way to understand wax is to compare it to other types of concentrates. Wax and shatter are both normally made with a butane hash oil (BHO) extraction process, which separates them from alcohol concentrates. Wax is normally softer than shatter, though sometimes people use terms like wax, shatter, and crumble to describe the same kinds of products. It’s produced at higher temperatures than live resin and is less refined than THCA diamonds.
How Is Wax Made?
There are a few different ways to make cannabis wax and similar concentrates, but the process normally goes something like this:
- Gather the raw plant material. Starting with high-quality flower makes it easier to produce premium cannabis concentrates.
- Separate cannabinoids and terpenes. A pressurized solvent like propane or butane is used to dissolve desirable natural components of the cannabis flower into a solution.
- Purify the product. The resulting solution must be purged because propane and butane aren’t safe for human consumption.
- Collect and package. Once the solvent has been removed, all that remains is a pure cannabis extract. It needs to cool and harden before it’s ready to sell, and the way it’s handled at this stage will affect its final consistency and appearance.
Why Dispensaries Need Cannabis Wax
Providing the best products is how cannabis dispensaries get more business, and a lot of people love wax. It’s a versatile concentrate that’s relatively easy to use without requiring a sophisticated dab rig. Many customers even like to wrap wax around joints or use it to top a bowl. This type of concentrate is also known for offering high THC levels and good taste.
Cannabis concentrates are becoming more popular on the whole. This is evident in things like the rising fame of 7/10 (dab day) and places that might be 710 friendly but not 420 friendly because of non-smoking policies. It’s no wonder concentrate sales may surpass the sale of regular flower within the next few years.
How to Get Wax for Your Dispensary
There are a few ways to find the best wax for your dispensary. The most straightforward is to simply buy it from a leading cannabis concentrate company in Colorado. Alternatively, some dispensaries like to take a more active role by working with an extraction company to produce one of a kind wax.
In this case, dispensaries can source their own plant material for extraction. The best extraction companies will provide fast turnarounds for cannabis concentrates and even provide detailed notes about how the material performed. That’s a big part of what we do when making BHO and PHO products here at Chronic Creations.
