When shopping for cannabis extract concentrates, sugar is only one of many different textures you might find. Sugar is distinct from other forms of cannabis concentrate like shatter or budder due to its thick, gritty, and moist consistency. The high terpene content is why people want to use it, but you can take it like any other extract. Although many solvent-based extracts with lower viscosity will sugar up over time if they are not winterized, marijuana sugar (also known as sugar wax) is often created on purpose.

More About Sugar

It’s common practice to give cannabis extracts names that reflect their outward characteristics, such as color, consistency, or pliability. Names like “shatter,” badder, “crumble,” and “oil” indicates the potency of these extracts. There isn’t any difference with sugar, either. Similar to other concentrations, it is produced by chemical solvent extraction of terpenes and cannabinoids from plant matter. The typical consistency of cane sugar marijuana is that of wet sand, and its hue can range from yellow to amber.

How Is Marijuana Sugar Made?

Making sugar follows a similar extraction procedure to that of other solvent-based extracts. Sugar and other concentrates can be produced using butane, supercritical carbon dioxide (CO2), propane, or ethanol as solvents. However, in contrast to the sugar-making process, the THC and CBD are stirred while the temperatures and pressures are kept low so that the terpenes are preserved throughout crystallization.

Sugar can be produced using flower from any cannabis strain, including hemp strains, before or after curing. Cured flower sugar often contains fewer terpenes than sugar made from an uncured flower. Live resin sugar, produced from freshly frozen flowers, contains more terpenes and, thus, a more robust flavor character.

How to Dab Sugar

Undeniably, dabbing is the most common method of ingesting extracts and concentrates. Dabbing delivers a wider spectrum of effects because concentrations are more potent than flower. Dabbing vaporizes the substance rather than burning it. Therefore the resulting flavors and fragrances are typically more pure and potent.

Dabbing marijuana sugar, however, is done in the same way as any other concentrate:

  • Heat up the nail
  • Add some sugar to taste.
  • To enjoy the vapors, inhale

Keep in mind that a spoon-shaped dab tool is preferable to a flat-tipped one because of the sugar’s unique properties. That makes it less of a hassle to remove the sugar from its container and place it neatly on the nail.

It is also possible to utilize a vape pen that does not require the usage of pre-filled cartridges and instead allows the user to dab large amounts of concentrate.

How to Smoke Sugar

A significant benefit of sugar wax is its versatility, you can consume sugar in several simple ways. It can be dabbed or added to other smoking methods with the same ease as any other marijuana concentrate. A good option is dabbing, but there are others.

One method would be to roll it into a joint, blunt, or spliff. To begin, simply fill your rolling paper or wrapper with flowers and sprinkle sugar evenly over the top. Light up your sugar-infused joint, blunt, or spliff the same way you would any other rolled cigarette. 

You should consider that the total amount of THC in a mixture of flower and sugar is much higher than in just the flower alone. Alternatively, you can also use a bong or pipe to ingest cannabis sugar.  Fill the bowl with flower, sprinkle some sugar on top, turn on the heat, and you’re ready to take off.

How Is Sugar Stored?

Like other forms of cannabis, sugar can be stored in a way that preserves its aroma, flavor, and potency while also slowing the extract’s decomposition.

Extreme conditions hasten the decomposition of cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and others when exposed to things like heat, oxygen, moisture, and light. In this case, your sugar may take on a darker hue. Alterations to its flavor, aroma, functionality and emotional impact are also possible.

Keep sugar in an airtight container, away from direct light and extreme temperatures to extend its shelf life. For this purpose, glass or silicone works best. Good containers can be purchased from local dispensaries and head shops.

What Is Cannabis-Infused Sugar?

Cannabis-infused sugar refers to sugar that is infused with cannabis through grain alcohol and a short baking time. Numerous applications exist for it. You can sweeten your morning coffee, afternoon tea, or evening cookies.

As with budder, shatter, and wax, sugar has long been a texture option for cannabis concentrates. The legalization of cannabis, however, has led to more people experimenting with it in the kitchen. Cannabutter, or butter infused with marijuana, has been a favorite for quite some time. Sugar infused with cannabis is now a common ingredient in online recipes.

How Weed-Infused Sugar Is Made

Here are the main ingredients and instructions for making cannabis-flavored sugar at home.

  1. You can decide if you want the THC in your cannabis diluted or not. Decarboxylation of cannabis yields the most potent form of THC or CBD, but this may not always be desirable.
  2. Take about 3 or 4 grams of your preferred marijuana and crush it. Of course, the amount is up to you, but this is a good starting point.
  3. First, you’ll need to put the weed in a jar and cover it with 1 cup (236 milliliters) of grain alcohol.
  4. Cover the jar and shake it vigorously once every five minutes for 20 minutes.
  5. Toss the cannabis and the bag it came in (all the good stuff has been extracted).
  6. Spread 1 cup (200 grams) of sugar on the bottom of a glass baking dish or sheet pan, then mix 1 cup (also 200 grams) of alcohol into the strained alcohol.
  7. Remove all traces of alcohol by baking at a temperature of 93 °C (200 degrees Fahrenheit).
  8. You can use it just like regular sugar after it has cooled.

As a result of the body’s metabolic processes, the THC concentration in edibles is significantly elevated. So you want to use caution when ingesting any edible weed, including sugar wax cannabis. It takes some time for the effects of THC to kick in, as the digestive system must first absorb the drug. 

Many anecdotes about people who ate edibles and got highly high exist because of this combination. To gauge your tolerance, wait at least two hours, preferably 24 hours, after consuming THC-infused cannabis sugar before consuming more.

Where to Buy Marijuana Sugar

Many cannabis users often resort to sugar wax, which contains a high concentration of the psychoactive compound tetrahydrocannabinol. Sugar wax dabs are widely available at local dispensaries. But if you value top-notch quality, you won’t go to just any store to get this. To purchase premium cannabis sugar wax, check out Dripp.
