The Abacus CBD hemp flower strain is a heavy hitter to say the least! The dense buds are covered in crystals and have hues of dark green and deep purple. The rich terpene profile contributes to a perfume-like aroma and pungent gasoline finish.

In 2017, the Abacus hemp strain was harvested for the first time. Created by crossing OG and Purple Urkel, Abacus contains high levels of CBD resin which makes it the perfect hemp cultivar for extraction. Because of its high potency and yield, the Abacus strain has become one of the most popular strains of hemp flower on the market.

Abacus is a strain for the experienced hemp connoisseur in search of unique terpene profiles and a relaxing experience. Users of the Abacus hemp strain have noted that the effects are relaxing but light enough to still allow for use during the day when being active is on the agenda. This makes the strain perfect for those stressful workdays.

BHO is short for butane hash oil. It is a type of hemp extract that is available in several different consistencies including shatter, budder, crumble, wax, and more. These concentrates are extracted from the plant material using the liquid solvent butane, hence the name butane hash oil.

Using butane to extract concentrates from hemp and cannabis plants involves serious risks including explosions and injuries. Aside from the extraction itself, another danger is the fact that any contaminants, mold, or pesticides that are in the extraction material will end up in the extract itself. This means that consumers as well as the individuals performing the extraction are at risk if the extraction is not carried out properly.

BHO extraction is a job best left to professionals with the proper materials, equipment, and expertise. Amateur extractors are liable to make common errors during the extraction process that lead to contaminants in the extract even if they used clean flower. For consumers of BHO wax and other BHO extracts, it’s important to only purchase from reliable and trusted vendors with 3rd party lab results for both cannabinoid potency and residual solvents.

BHO CBD wax is generally extracted in one of two ways. Essentially, plant material is stuffed into a tube and the solvent butane is pushed through this tube to separate the oils from the plant matter. However, there is an extremely dangerous way of going about this process, and a proper way.

Open Blasting

Open blasting BHO wax is extremely dangerous. This is the original method used to extract BHO, which commercial extractors no longer use.

This technique of open blasting is outdated and not only is it considered dangerous, but also wasteful. The reason this technique is so dangerous, is that there is nothing to contain the flammable solvent during the extraction process. This means any ignition in the open blasting area will result in an explosion.

Closed-loop

Closed-loop extraction is the technique commercial extractors use.

Aside from having no openings throughout the system for flammable solvents to escape, there are are other advantages of closed-loop systems. One of these advantages is that outside contaminants are much less likely to end up in the extract. In a closed-loop system, solvents are put into a pressurized tank which is attached to the extraction tube containing the plant material. Even though a closed-loop system is much safer than the open blasting technique, routine equipment checks, and precautions are necessary to ensure safe operation.

Another advantage is that solvents can be reused in a closed-loop system. These systems feature recovery tanks where solvents collect during the extraction process. These solvents can be stored in the recovery tank until they are removed and recycled.

It is important for amateur users of CBD concentrates to start slow. There is a reason it is called “taking a dab”. Only a “dab” is needed to feel the effects, especially with strong full spectrum CBD BHO wax.

The most common way to use BHO wax is dabbing with the use of a dab torch and a dab rig. Dab rigs are like bongs except they feature a nail instead of a bowl which is used to vaporize the wax. Daily concentrate users are more likely to use low temp dabbing in combination with a carb cap. E-nails are a popular tool often used in low-temperature dabbing because they eliminate the need for a butane torch. There are generally two parts to an e-nail, the controller where temperature is adjusted and the heating coil which wraps around the nail on your dab rig.

Initially when BHO wax first hit the scene, titanium nails were used, and dabs were dropped onto the nail when it was practically red hot. The art of dabbing and concentrate connoisseurs themselves have evolved since that time, and today low temperature dabs using quartz nails have become the chosen method to vaporize cannabis oils while enjoying the maximum flavor potential.

Low Temp Dabs

Low-temperature dabbing is the process of heating your nail up completely, and then waiting until it cools to a low temp before taking your dab.

Depending on the type of nail and the initial amount of heat applied, you want to wait anywhere between 20 seconds to a minute before dropping your extract onto the nail. The waiting time depends on how much heat the nail can retain. Only once the nail is cool enough to vaporize your concentrate without burning terpenes and cannabinoids is it safe take the dab.

A carb cap can then be placed over the nail once the extract has been melted. If you experience a harsh and burnt taste, the nail was too hot. If you experience a smooth and flavorful dab, you did it just right. Any extract that remains in the nail can be mopped up with a Q-tip. Always be sure to clean your nails to maintain optimal flavor and vaporization.

Quartz Inserts

The quartz insert is the next level of evolution when it comes to low temp dabbing. A quartz insert forces the concentrate to quickly go from a low-temperature to a higher temperature. This allows for a unique experience of cannabinoids and terpenes that isn’t possible with a nail and carb cap alone.

Quartz inserts are available in different shapes and sizes. A common shape is the cup shape which will fit into most quartz bangers.

For the maximum amount of flavor from the terpenes in your extract, you might want to try the insert drop technique. This involves pre-filling your insert with your concentrate, and then heating your banger up evenly for about one minute. After 5 to 30 seconds, drop the insert into the banger.

There are many different kinds of CBD concentrates and hemp extracts. BHO extracts come in many different consistencies too. This is due to different extraction material and techniques being used during the extraction process. Some may look like traditional BHO wax, while others may look glassy or saucy.

BHO Oil

BHO with a very loose consistency is often referred to as oil. It’s only a little bit thicker than a liquid and very sticky. Slightly thick oil is called sap. Sap and oil are not as easy to work with compared to other concentrate consistencies. For this reason, they usually aren’t very popular with consumers.

BHO Budder

BHO budder has a consistency that is attained by agitating the extract during the extraction process. The name ‘budder’ was coined because of the similar consistency to actual butter. Budder often looks wet it is easily scooped and spread. Budder has no real advantages over any other type of consistency, it really all depends on preference. When using a wax pen, budder like consistencies can be easier to work with compared to something like that BHO sap or oil.

BHO Crumble

BHO crumble got its name because of its crumbly consistency that crumbles when it is handled. Some users don’t like crumble because of this, usually when scooping up crumble, a bunch of it will crumble away and break off. Crumble is generally easier to handle than saps and oils, but more difficult to handle than budder or shatter.

BHO Shatter

BHO shatter is one of the only types of hemp extracts that can be handled without using a dab tool. Even though it gets its name from the fact that it shatters like glass, you can often snap and pull pieces off from a slab of shatter and drop them in a banger with only your fingers. Some shatter is so glassy it will break and shatter into pieces that fly off when trying to use a dab tool.

BHO Live Resin

BHO Live resin extracts differ from other types of extracts because they are extracted from plant material that is cryogenically frozen immediately after harvesting and kept frozen up until the extraction process begins. This preserves terpenes and cannabinoids that are usually destroyed using traditional drying and curing methods. BHO live resin can come in many different consistencies including crystalline, sugar, shatter, sauce, and budder.

What Is BHO Wax?

Butane hash oil or BHO wax is a common form of BHO hemp extract. Butane extraction, also known as hydrocarbon extraction, is one of the most popular methods of making cannabis extracts. If you have purchased concentrates from a dispensary, there is a good chance it was extracted using butane. BHO wax is simply one type of BHO extract that is known for having a waxy consistency. High CBD BHO wax contains a full spectrum cannabinoid and terpene profile and generally has higher concentrations of CBD than other types of CBD concentrates.

If you are on the fence about using hydrocarbon extracted concentrates, you can gain some peace of mind by only purchasing them from trusted vendors like Sauce Warehouse. Sauce Warehouse works with professional extraction artists and provides 3rd party residual solvent lab results for all CBD BHO wax available on the site.

Alternatively, you can stick with solventless CBD rosin. Sauce Warehouse offers many CBD rosin concentrates and CBD rosin can even be made at home using the rosin pressing technique. CBD hash is another extract that can be easily made at home without the risks involved with butane extraction. Combining these two techniques to make homemade hash rosin is yet another option that will yield an extremely potent, connoisseur quality hemp extract.
