RE: Weed vs. Wax
I personally prefer to add a bit of wax (or another concentrate) on the top of my weed before lighting up. It melts into the flower nicely, and intensifies the high. The flavor is great, too!
What I find the most interesting about wax is how it’s made because that’s what gives it that weird texture. It begins as an amber liquid that comes from butane extraction. Once it’s heated up, it becomes this opaque, sticky substance that can range in consistency from peanut butter to earwax.
The molecular layering is such a jumbled up mess, unlike others like shatter, which have a neatly stacked structure. So, it gives it that weird consistency.
I’m a big fan of wax, and love how powerful and long-lasting the high is.
