A cannabis extract identified by its malleable texture that falls apart, or “crumbles,” when handled. Unlike other forms of concentrates, crumble — sometimes called “honeycomb wax” — is quite versatile, and not limited to dabbing. Some sprinkle the extract over the top of cannabis buds in a bowl, blunt, or joint. The fragmented texture results from elevated temperatures used during the solvent removal process, or by whipping the extract under the presence of heat.
What is Crumble?
Crumble is an extract, a form of cannabis concentrate that’s produced using a solvent. But unlike other concentrates, which are generally fluid in their consistency, crumble is defined by its unique, crumbly texture. In fact, when made correctly, the final product is the driest type of extract on the market. Crumble can be made with processes that include either trimmed, cured nugs or a freshly harvested plant. It can be consumed on its own, or combined with flower in a variety of ways. This versatility, combined with its potency, makes this increasingly popular among cannabis consumers.
How to Smoke Crumble
One option for smoking crumble is to add it to blunts or joints to enhance the effects. When the flower is flat on the rolling paper or tobacco leaf, add small pieces of the concentrate, ensuring that as much of it lays in the center as possible. Once it’s rolled up and ready, light one end and draw from the opposite end. When the smoke is inhaled, the flower and crumble combination produces significantly heightened effects.
If you’re smoking your flower topped with crumble in a bong or pipe, fill the glass bowl with flower and add the concentrate to the top. Light the mixture with a lighter and, depending on the device, pull air into your lungs when the smoke is ready. The flower and crumble mixture will produce a smoke that’s more potent than flower alone.
