Crumble Wax or Honeycomb Extract. What Is It? How to Use It? Pros and Cons

Explore the unique world of crumble wax cannabis extract, its benefits, use, and more.

What is crumble wax? What is honeycomb cannabis extract? What’s the difference between them?

Crumble Wax is a cannabis concentrate that is made from flash frozen or cured flower distinguished by its crumbly texture (hence the name) as well as flavor and potency. It is sometimes referred to as just crumbles or honeycomb. The latter is basically the same in all regards, except that it is still intact in a form of a honeycomb. The color of the extract varies from light yellow to almost amber.

How is crumble made?

Crumble can be made from dried/cured flower or from fresh frozen one resulting in live product. The process is basically the same as for other concentrates - using a solvent (CO2, butane) to separate cannabinoids, terpenes, etc. from the plant, removing the plant matter, and then removing the solvent by pressure, heat, and other methods. The last step is where crumble consistency is created - it is purged of solvents by using lower temperature for a longer period of time. Do not try to make crumble at home as the process is complicated but more importantly potentially dangerous and requires professional equipment and oversight. Make sure to purchase crumble and other cannabis products at a licensed dispensary to ensure quality and safety.

How to use cannabis crumble?

- Dabbing. One of the most common way of consuming concentrates due to its efficiency - you get the most out of your product. Dabbing means inhaling the extract vaporized by using an e-nail or a dab rig. The latter is basically a bong for extracts but creating vape instead of smoke due to higher temperatures.
Tip: When picking a nail or a dabber for crumble, go for the scoop one.

- Joints, blunts or spliffs. This is where crumble’s consistency comes in handy compared to more liquid concentrates like badder/budder. It is so much easier to handle.

- Concentrate vaporizer pen. Cannabis crumble or honeycomb is easy to consume with a special pen for extract due to its solid consistency.

- Topping off a bowl. Same as above examples, crumble is great for a bong or a pipe, if you like to add a punch to your flower.

How long does wax crumble last?

Like most extracts, wax crumble can last at least 6 months and up to a year or even more if stored properly but it is always best to use it before the expiration date provided on the packaging. Store your crumbs away from heat and direct sunlight, preferably in a glass container. You do not need much for short term storage but for mid to long term you will need non-stick paper, zip lock and fridge / freezer. Choosing to freeze your extract will prolong its life but you may lose some of those precious terpenes, flavor and even potency.

Frequently Asked Questions about crumble

Can I put crumble in a cart?

Crumble is not meant for cartridges due to its consistency but you can use it in a portable vaporizer for concentrates.

What does crumble smell like?

Crumble will typically have the odors of the terpenes found in the flower used to create it.

Сan you eat crumble raw? Will it get me high if I eat it?

No and no. Crumble is meant to be dabbed or smoked but not eaten. Do not ingest the product. And no, eating crumble will not get you high. Unlike edibles, the THC in most concentrates is not decarboxylated or “not activated” so to speak. It becomes “activated” due to heating used when you dab or smoke it.
Note: Crumble can be turned into an edible form by decarboxylating it and infusing it into food but this is not recommended as it is hard to ensure proper dosage, flavor, etc.

Pros and cons of crumble. Is crumble good for dabbing?

Pros

- Affordability. Compared to other concentrates, especially in the case of live product.

- Potency and Flavor. With 80-90% THC, crumble is ahead of the majority of its “cousins”. It also usually offers a richer flavor.

- Handling. Depending on the tools you use to consume it, crumble may just be the perfect consistency for you - it is dry, unlike the majority of extracts.

Cons

- Handling may also be a con for your particular dab nail or other equipment if your set up is meant for more liquid extracts.

Conclusion

Crumble is a rather rare concentrate popular among enthusiasts due to its high quality and dry consistency which is sometimes easier to handle than wax, shatter, resin, etc.
