What does “Wax” mean?

Wax is a term that can be used to describe many extractions, specifically extracts made using a chemical like hydrocarbons or CO2. These products are generally used for dabbing and can be called shatter, butter, live resin, and more. It wasn’t until the early 2010s that wax gained popularity in cannabis culture and as it has become a staple glass art and dab rigs have followed.

Example usage:

“Wax is great for a super heady experience, I prefer to dab it on an e-rig.”
