The spectrum of CBD concentrates can be a blast to explore. To make the most out of these powerful, concentrated, and potent extracts, you must learn to smoke a dab.
Simply, smoking dabs involves heating the concentrate to the point of vaporization and inhaling the vapors in the collaboration of terpenes and cannabinoids. So, as long as you follow a few simple tips, there are many ways to enjoy a dab.
How do I smoke Dabs using Dab Rig?
Of all the methods to smoke dab rigs, dab rigs are the preferred method. You can pick either a traditional dab rig starter kit or one that has an electronic nail (electric nail).
- Standard Dab Rig
The most widely used method of smoking dabs is through a simple dab rig. There are all sorts of fancy setups, however, these models typically come with the same parts: a chamber for water an inhaler mouthpiece for the smoke, a dome that encapsulates the heat and vapors, as well as nails to heat the dab.
To utilize a dab rig eliminate the dome heat the nail, replace the dome, apply your dab on the nail using a dabber or dab device, and then take a deep breath. Most people will use an e-cap over the dome to regulate the flow and heat of vapors even further.
- Electric Dab Rig
The electric dab-rig operates in the exact same way as a traditional dab rig but it has one distinct advantage that it uses electricity to heat up the metal nail so that you don’t have to heat it up manually. One of the perks of an electric dab device with an e-nail is the fact you have more control over the temperature.
When you’re using concentrates like THC oils, you’ll want to ensure a steady temperature to protect the terpenes contained in the concentrate and prevent bad flavors. But, this precise control of temperature is an excellent choice for concentrates such as live resin or Terp sauce.
How to smoke Dabs without the use of a Dab Rig
- T-Wax (rolled into a joint)
T-waxing is an extremely popular way to smoke dabs, albeit a little messy. If you have some good buds and a high-quality concentrate, you’re simply going to add a little of the concentrate you’ve chosen to your weed as you roll in a joint. This is best done with certain concentrates that are thicker, such as budder or sugar wax. Concentrates that are thinner like RSO oils can make it extremely difficult to obtain a solid fire once you’ve ignited.
Vaping concentrates can be a simple process when you have the correct setup and offers one of the best ways to smoke dabs while on the go. You will need a vaping setup that includes a separate atomizer and battery to ensure that you can simply place your dab on the atomizer (heating coil). The trick with this method is to determine the ideal temperature to cause the concentrate to evaporate, which is why you’ll require a vaping kit that provides the ability to control the temperature.
Other vaping options aside from “vape pens” include cannabis vaporizers made specifically for concentrates. These vaporizers are perfect for people who don’t want cartridges and prefer other types of concentrates, as well as those who would like to take their dabs on the go.
A healthstone is a specifically designed stone that can be placed in the bowl of a bong or inside a standard pipe. The stone is porous, so the smoke from the burned dab flows through the stone and through the bong or pipe, and then out into the mouthpiece. Simply add the stone to your bowl, heat your healthstone to the proper temperature, then add your dab, puff and then enjoy.
- Hot-Knife Method
If you have nothing else on hand, the hot-knife method is the simplest, simplest way to enjoy the pleasure of a dab. It is basically heating the metal knife on the stove or using a torch lighter, placing your dab on the hot surface, and breathing in the vapors using a straw. This technique can result in much waste and could be dangerous because you must take care not to burn your hands, however, it could work in a pinch.
