It is a general term used to refer to extracts that are solid, opaque and with soft texture. In its preparation, marijuana buds are packed tightly into a tube and then blasted with butane (a highly flammable liquid) that separates the trichomes from the material resulting in a concentrated substance. It is available in different consistencies and variations like honeycomb, crumble, earwax, sugar etc. with the difference arising from the extraction and purging process used in each variety’s production. Marijuana wax is consumed in bongs and vaporizers.
