    I'm assuming it's not the cleanest bho out there, probably just the residue from the wax, not the butane.

    It may be plant waxes/material as @KidFated stated (poet and don't know it).:dog: It could also depend on how fine of a filter your buddy used to extract.
    It could also be that the nail cooled and you did not quite finish the dab.

    If it doesn't sizzle and or firework with a dab test it most likely isn't butane, but just leftover material coating the nail...
