    The oil i have is really potent, i just want to know how to make it more of a wax consistency. The way I get the oil onto my bowls is by heating it up so it drips onto my weed. It would be a lot easier if it were a more waxy consistency and I would rather be able to take off a little ball and throw it on my bowl, instead of having to melt it on. If anyone has any techniques or suggestions that would be greatly appreciated

    ^^^Bingo it's going to go through decarboxylation with the added air and gentle heat. That's what gives you the wax.

    Decarboxylation is a chemical reaction which releases carbon dioxide (CO2). Usually, decarboxylation refers to a reaction of carboxylic acids, removing a carbon atom from a carbon chain. The reverse process, which is the first chemical step in photosynthesis, is called carbonation, the addition of CO2 to a compound. Enzymes that catalyze decarboxylations are called decarboxylases or, more formally, carboxy-lyases.

    Haha ok so what should I heat it up in, because every time I heat it up with a lighter or something it turns into a liquid and drips (thats how I get it on my bowls). What would I heat it up in to make it turn into wax, and and what temperature?
