Methods of Twaxing | The slang term for applying concentrated cannabis to flowers, Twax – term originally created by @WA5280 on MassRoots – is a fairly new word for most. In fact, concentrated cannabis itself is a fairly new concept. A lot of the country is only even just recently hearing of dabs (concentrates).
Of course, as something new comes out people find a way of combining it with the past. Bowls, joints, bong rips, can all be Twaxed, simply by adding dabs to your cannabis you are “twaxing”.
There are many methods to twaxing, due to the many different types of concentrates.
Shatter webs refers to adding shatter to the tip of your joint by heating up the concentrates a little with your lighter, lightly touching the heated concentrates to the tip of your joint and then slowly pulling it away creating thin strings of concentrates that you can lay over the tip of your joint as if it were a spider’s web.
Using either your fingers or parchment paper (depending on your shatter’s stability and whether you want finger prints in your shatter), roll the shatter back and forth until you have created a nice even snake of shatter, this snake can either be placed around the outside of the joint by tacking it into place with your finger and twisting it around the joint, or on the inside.
When it is placed on the outside you will need to spin the joint and pay attention so that it does not drip on you.
By heating up shatter and spreading it in a thin layer all over the outside of the joint you can create a sticky coating that kief will attach to when the joint is rolled in it.
When lit the kief will absorb the oil, it can still drip but is slightly less likely to do so.
You can add kief or hash of any kind or concentrates to the inside of the joint before its rolled, thus creating a more powerful and slower burning joint. Be sure to fold the kief/hash/concentrates inside of the cannabis so that it is in the center and as little as possibly is touching the paper on the inside. Wherever the kief/hash/concentrates are touching the paper it will cause the paper to burn more slowly and can create runs. Also, too much kief /hash/concentrates in one spot and your joint will run on the opposite side. Make sure everything is even.
You can also get creative with your twaxing, you can spell out names or words, or make shapes. In all reality, you can do anything!
Twaxing has so many different possibilities, in which it can be used both to create a more powerful high and to create something beautiful.
Twax and relax!
