Cannabis Dabbing: Here’s Everything You Need to Know
As cannabis legalization continues to sweep the United States, public opinion is increasingly supportive of cannabis consumption for both medical and recreational use. As weed has become more mainstream, cannabis dabbing has emerged as a growing trend among the cannabis community. If you’re new to marijuana, the art of dabs may even seem difficult to understand. Here’s everything you need to know about dabbing.
What Is Dabbing?
Dabbing is a popular method by which to obtain the medical benefits of cannabis in higher concentrations. The process of dabbing uses cannabis concentrates, such as wax, shatter, rosin, distillate, oil, and hash. These cannabis ‘dabs’ are more potent than traditional cannabis flower, with THC levels ranging anywhere from 60% to 90%.
Dabbing can provide fast and powerful relief for medical patients experiencing debilitating health conditions, such as chronic pain and nausea. It can also provide a more intense psychoactive high for recreational users, which means dabbing is usually reserved for cannabis consumers with more experience with weed.
Cannabis Dabbing: What Equipment Do You Need?
If you are new to the world of cannabis dabbing, there are a few items you will need to procure before setting off on your dabbing adventures. In order to consume dabs, you will need something called a ‘dab rig’. This is essentially a water bong that can be specifically used for various types of cannabis concentrates. Dab rigs contain a nail, usually made of titanium, as well as a ‘dabber’ or ‘wand’ that is used to pick up the cannabis concentrate. To use the rig, the nail must be heated to a high temperature (usually using some form of hand torch). Then, the concentrate can be melted on the nail and used to create vapor in the rig which is then inhaled.
Once you are well versed in the ways of your dab rig, you’ll need the cannabis concentrate to go with it. Here are 6 dabs you’ll want to try.
