CBD wax is made from hemp
What is CBD? What is the difference with THC?
CBD is a substance found naturally in hemp plants. It is part of the cannabinoid family, along with another type: THC. Cannabinoids act on receptors in the central nervous system and the peripheral system. They also act on certain organs and on the immune system.
The big difference between the two compounds is in their effects. THC (or delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) is a psychoactive molecule which will give you a feeling of euphoria and make the consumer “hover”. It is the substance that is responsible for the harmful effects of cannabis. Its consumption is prohibited in France and in most of Europe.
CBD (or tetrahydrocannabinol) is not psychoactive. It helps bring relaxation and calm but does not have the drawbacks of a hard drug. You control these effects. – benefits of CBD are many. It relieves stress, pain and more promotes sleep.
The big difference between CBD and THC comes from dependence on these molecules. THC puts the consumer in a total addiction to its effects, dragging them into a vicious cycle: the more THC I consume, the more I need it. CBD has no harmful effects and is not addictive. Studies on CBD to date prove that it does not represent any danger to health and could even in the long term be interesting to accompany the drug treatment of certain pathologies.
What is CBD wax?
CBD wax is a product based on CBD derived from hemp and which comes in the form of a hardened wax (“wax” means “wax” in English). The CBD wax is composed of crystallized CBD oil. This wax is obtained by a closed circuit extraction process. Once heated to low temperature, CBD oil is whipped to remove any solvent residue. The result is a very dry and very crumbly wax.
CBD wax is known to be one of the most concentrated forms of CBD with dosages ranging from 10% to sometimes more than 80% of CBD. This comes from the extraction process. So with very little product, you can enjoy all the benefits of CBD at most.
CBD wax contains CBD but also other cannabinoids in negligible quantities, as well as terpenes naturally present in the hemp plant. It is a product that is steadily gaining popularity for this reason.
Is CBD wax legal?
The CBD wax offered in your shop Weedy is 100% legal
The law is clear regarding THC products: they are prohibited. No sale, no consumption, no production is possible under penalty of severe legal proceedings. This firmness of the law comes from the proven harmful effects on the body and the brain produced by THC. It is considered a narcotic, a hard drug.
The problem with CBD is that it comes from the same plant as THC. Yet, as we explained earlier, it has no harmful effect on the body. Similarly, the hemp plant is not only used for these two types of molecules but also for other properties. Thus, different industries use hemp to produce paper, cordage, fabrics and many other things.
To help distinguish CBD hemp from THC cannabis, the authorities have drawn up a list of varieties of plants authorized on the market. These raw materials should only contain 0,3% THC in accordance with French legislation to avoid confusion (in comparison, cannabis contains at least 15% THC).
The CBD wax offered in your shop is therefore guaranteed in accordance with the law. The hemp plant from which it comes contains no more than 0,2% THC. So you have le right to buy and use it.
How to use CBD wax?
The use of CBD wax does not seem to flow naturally, especially for neophytes. So now that you have your pot in your hands, what to do with it?
CBD wax is used in two different ways.
The first way is inhalation. To inhale the CBD wax, you can practice “dabbing” (dabbing) as our Anglo-Saxon friends call it. It is the most popular method (even if it may seem unusual at first) because it allows instant vaporization of the product. Do not worry, you will quickly take the helping hand. Apply very little wax on a very hot surface (a glass or ceramic bowl heated with a blowtorch for example) then let the inhalations act.
CBD wax can also be inhaled into your CBD e-cigarettes, once transformed into e-liquid by heating it.
The second way to consume CBD wax it is simply mixed with food or drink. You can add it like any other ingredient in your recipes and pastries. To do this, mix the CBD wax with another fatty substance.
As previously announced, CBD wax is one of the most concentrated products in CBD. Pay attention to your dosages: don’t get your hands too heavy. Also take care never to consume it pure and in its solid form.

The Truth About CBD Concentrates
CBD concentrates, which include CBD Wax, CBD Shatter, CBD Crumble, CBD “Terp Coral” and CBD crystal all have one thing in common, they can not be “true” CBD concentrates without some type of dilution or remediation, meaning the removal of some of the hemp compounds to make the product legal.
A CBD concentrate is made by extracting hemp flower or biomass into oil through hydrocarbon, CO2 or alcohol, then taking the CBD oil from the extraction process, refine the oil or dilute the oil, to make it compliant with the law, then turn the oil into a CBD wax, CBD shatters or CBD crumble.
Here is why CBD Concentrates can not be true concentrates without dilution or remediation:
The definition of hemp or any legal hemp product is a hemp flower or hemp product that contains .3% total THC or less on a dry weight basis. Hemp products always start with either hemp flower or hemp biomass which contain .3% total THC or less. The main difference between the two is that hemp flower is trimmed up hemp which is usually sold as smokable hemp by weight or processed into hemp pre-rolls. Hemp biomass consists of the entire plant which is used for extraction to create CBD oil used for CBD tinctures, gels, salves, and more.
Once hemp is grown and matured, the CBD content on a percentage basis is about 8% while the total THC is about .3%. Next, when the hemp flower is extracted to create the CBD oil which is used to make CBD concentrates, the total THC goes from .3% to about 3%, making the product illegal. A concentrate by definition is making something stronger by removing water or other compounds. Extracting hemp flower increases the percentage of both CBD and THC 8-10x.
So how are there legal CBD Concentrates on the market?
There are a few different ways to create legal CBD concentrates to sell. One is using pure CBD isolate which is made by processing and refining all of the cannabinoids and compounds out of the hemp flower except the CBD which contains no THC. CBD isolate is the least effective CBD product because all of the other supporting cannabinoids have been removed. Studies have shown that cannabis cannabinoids and compounds work together synergistically in what is called the Entourage Effect. You then add either cannabis-derived terpenes or synthetic terpenes to the CBD isolate to make your CBD wax or CBD shatter. Always make sure they use cannabis-derived terpenes because cannabis-derived terpenes are more therapeutic.
The second way to make legal CBD concentrates is to extract the hemp flower into CBD oil then use a chromatography machine to remove the THC from the oil which leaves all of the other cannabinoids in the oil. Using chromatography machines first requires the raw CBD oil from the initial extraction to run through a fractional distillation machine, which removes the majority of the cannabis compounds including the terpenes and leaving the cannabinoids in an oil form. Next, the CBD oil is diluted in toxic chemicals prior to being put through the chromatography machine. The chromatography machine splits the oil up into two fractions, one with THC and the other with CBD and other minor cannabinoids. The THC free oil can now be used to create legal CBD concentrates by adding back the cannabis terpenes or using synthetic terpenes.
A third method, is using cultivar specific full spectrum oil from a solventless extraction technology or hydrocarbon machine. Cultivar specific means oil from one specific strain “proper word is cultivar” of hemp and diluting it with pure CBD which gives you a full spectrum CBD concentrate that is legal based on THC levels but still has unrefined full-spectrum CBD oil containing the original cannabis terpene profile of the specific hemp cultivar “strain”. CBD wax and CBD crumble products allow for the consistency of a product that comes from a unique hemp cultivar.
