Step By Step Guide To Dabbing
The levels of THC in marijuana 30 years ago were generally below 10 percent. Today, you can find certain strains that are have over 30 percent of THC. With the evolution of the flower, concentrates have also began to gain more popularity over the years. Wax, oils, and extracts come in varieties of potency levels and the most popular method of consuming these is to “dab.” This newer approach to consuming our favorite plant is taking over the cannabis community with no signs of slowing down. Don’t let the idea of handling a torch deter you from experiencing a whole new high.
Here’s your step by step guide to dabbing.
- An oil rig (glass piece designed for dabbing – see Glass On Demand for great prices and nationwide shipping)
- Marijuana concentrate/extract
- A nail
- Dabber or wand
- Handheld torch
STEP 1: SEASON THE NAIL
For a new nail, torch until it’s red hot, then place in cold water. Repeat step 5X. *You’re using a handheld blow torch for this, please be careful.
STEP 2: HEAT THE NAIL
Now that the nail is seasoned, place it on the step of your rig. Take the torch and heat it up one last time until it begins to glow red again. While you wait a few seconds for it to cool, head to the next step.
STEP 3: PREPARE YOUR DAB
Use your wand to grab a serving of your wax. First timers, start with tiny doses and work your way up to bigger globs.
STEP 4: HIT IT!
Slowly inhale the vapor from your piece as you dab, like you would smoking regular flower. Don’t forget to cap it!
STEP 5: REPEAT
STEP 6: CLEAN
Try to keep your piece as clean as possible. It heats better, you’ll actually taste your fresh concentrates, and it looks nicer.
