How to dab? What even is dabbing? On a recent trip to the dispensary I set my sights on the concentrated offerings and it was education. “What’s going on over there?” I asked the more than friendly bud tender and was surprised when three more came over to discuss the ins and outs of dabbing and just what makes it so alluring.
So, What Is Dabbing?
You may have heard of dabbing since everyone and your mother was doing the move – the head tilt to elbow other arm extended dance move – at some point over the last year. Well, that move’s origins are actually traced back to the process of smoking highly concentrated dabs of cannabis and is attributed to the rap group Migos. Dabbing can make you cough or sneeze afterward so the action of head to elbow is representational. But fancy moves aside, dabbing is rapidly becoming a method of choice for the experienced cannabis user in part due to its ability to deliver high amounts of THC in a short amount of time and with other some added benefits.
First, What You’ll Need
The equipment for needed for dabbing is a rig and torch. The unit is a lot like like a bong but with a the metal nail. The nail is important because it is able to maintain a much higher temperature than glass. To heat the nail use a blow torch . There are also electronic nails available for purchase. You just plug it in and you’re ready to go. Or, to make things even easier there are dab pens. Small, inconspicuous and portable.
And, What Is A Dab?
So, how does it all work? As mentioned, dabs are high concentrates of cannabinoids. Extracted from cannabis using a solvent. The flowers are crushed and pressed together and the plant materials are stripped away. The same way a fine wines are cultivated by a sommelier there is a refinement to the highest quality dabs on the market which are distilled. The result is a waxy substance that varies in color and quality and consisting of more THC than any other product available.
Time To Get Dabbing
So, once you have your rig all set you’ll heat the metal and get it blazing. You’ll have chosen the exact waxy component and add just a small amount of that dab onto the nail. The heat will vaporize and you’ll inhale and enjoy the clean, earthy taste of highly concentrated cannabis. It is much better to start out small and increase as your experience level grows with dabbing. And then it’s time to get your groove on.
