Nowadays, the most effective and healthy way to smoke marijuana concentrates, like shatter, wax, and BHO, is to dab them. In this article, we have prepared three tips for your smooth and enjoyable first-time dabbing experience.
What is dabbing?
Dabbing is one of many ways to vape marijuana concentrates by pressing them against an extremely heated titanium, quartz or ceramic nail that is placed on the dab rig, which resembles a glass bong or water pipe but in fact works in a different way. The most common form of marijuana dabbing involves a dome-and-nail rig. Just as a bowl is applied to a bong, a nail slides into a dab rig. After that, the nail is heated up to 700 degrees Fahrenheit with a butane torch. Once the nail becomes red, you need to place a glass dome over it. Using a dabber, put a piece of marijuana wax or another concentrate on the heated nail. You will see how the milky clouds full of THC are created. Enjoy them! As you see, the process of dabbing is quite simple, though extremely potent marijuana concentrates can be quite daunting for beginners. Here are tips that will help you easily get the vape from concentrates.
1. Start small
When it comes to dabbing marijuana concentrates, the good old method of throwing someone into the pool to teach them how to swim will not really work. The reason for that is that cannabis concentrates contain more THC than dry herbs that you smoke. Normally, marijuana contains up to 25% of THC, while the level of the cannabinoid in the concentrates can exceed 80%. Find the level that is comfortable for you.
Be aware that the temperature of nails can reach 900 degrees Fahrenheit. Without high temperature, you will not get those thick and milky clouds you love dabbing so much for. However, the vapor from dabbing is harsher than that from vape pens. Make sure you have a glass of water near you.
3. Create the right atmosphere
To dab marijuana concentrates, you need to be relaxed. Dim the lights, add some music, light up candles, and make sure you have a comfortable couch. Physical satisfaction causes mental well-being.
