how to melt cbd isolate into wax

Crystalline can be ingested orally, either added to a recipe when making edibles, or dissolving in oil to create a tincture-like product. For homemade edibles, crystals can be dissolved in cooking oil or butter, and used as an ingredient in recipes. Olive oil and coconut oil are the most popular for dissolving crystal to make a tincture-like product.

A number of methods are used for making THC Crystalline, but the essential crystallization principles are the same. One way to understand the crystallization process is similar to the making of rock candy. Hot water is supersaturated with sugar, then as the water cools down, sugar crystals start to form on a string or stick. Hot water allows more sugar to dissolve than under room temperature. As the unstable sugar solution is removed from the heat and allowed to cool, sugar crystals start to precipitate out of solution and will eventually begin to form on the stick. The THC crystal formation will grow over time until the final product is successfully achieved.

THCA crystalline can also be combined with other cannabis Concentrates, like live resin Shatter, to increase their potency. Mixing THC crystals with concentrates that have terpenes and other cannabinoids may aid the uptake of the THCA, CBDA, or CBD into the body.

The purest form of cannabis concentrate, this extract consists of a single type of cannabinoid, usually tetrahydrocannabinolic acid (THCA), cannabidiolic acid (CBDA), or cannabidiol (CBD). Crystalline is formed by thoroughly refining cannabis oil and serves as a base for formulated cannabis products. While possibly more potent, crystalline lacks the flavor of other Concentrates and some of the medicinal benefits due to its isolation from the original terpenes.

I usually put drops of terpenes on my CBD isolate (crystal) and it slightly changes the consistency briefly until I refreeze it into crystal form again.

I have a friend who has to stop THC for a drug test and wants to start dabbing pure CBD, I would love to be able to turn our CBD isolate into more of a wax like THC that we can continue to dab together, and be similar to usual THC wax so he does't feel left out.

Has anyone tried turning their CBD Isolate into a more of a waxy/concentrate texture for dabbing?

Would Adding more drops of terpenes and re-freezing multiple times turn one's CBD isolate into more of a wax that is easy to dab using a designated dabber tool?

I would love to find out. If anyone has not done so, throw down some ideas that might help me out. I will do it for science. I am just all out of CBD isolate and would love to know if I could do this before actually purchasing more CBD. The CBD crystal is beautiful but I would much prefer to turn it into my own tastey medical wax with whatever flavor(s) "terpenes" I want. The wax would probably be pretty damn clear and look awesome anyways. I am just unsure how much terpenes I would need to add to create a flavorful consistency like shatter.
