How to dab: What do you need to know about burning shatter

Dabbing is the flash vaporization dabs, also called concentrates when heated to high temperatures, and is performed using the use of a dab rig, an e-rig or dab pen. This guide will focus on the traditional dabbing using dab rigs in this guide.

There’s a bit of a process of learning with dabbing and if this is your first time doing it before, it may be beneficial to get someone who is experienced guide you through the process.

The most important thing to remember when you dab:

Dabs are concentrated versions of cannabis, therefore you can get a small amount of cannabis to go a very far distance. The flower has between 15-25% THC, while dabs are between 60-90% THC.

And if you want all that 90% THC experience you will want to use the top-quality dab rig kit for that smoking session!

The temperature of your dabbing is vital: If the nail is too hot, you’ll scorch the terpenes. You’ll also likely trigger an uncontrollable cough.

Beware of the hot nail, which is hotter than a hot bowl or lighter.

How do you use a dab-rig?

Dab rigs are water pipe that allows you to inhale dab smoke. It is shaped like a bong, with the chamber which holds water to cool the vapor. But rather than a bowl for flowers, as with bongs, a dab one has a nail that can be used to store concentrates.

How does a dab rig work?

To dab, the nail of a dab rig can be heated with a torch, and allowed to cool to the correct temperature. Cannabis concentrate is placed into the nail and the heat causes it to evaporate. A carb cap is then placed on top of the nail, and the dabber inhales to control the airflow by using the carb cap.

Vapor moves through the nail to an rig’s main chamber, and is cooled by water prior to reaching the dabber’s respiratory system.

How do you make dabs?

Before you can dab It is important to remember that solvent concentrates, such as shatter, wax, crumble, jelly, honey and many others, are made using chemical solvents like butane. In order to make these concentrates, they require a certified technician equipped with required equipment. They cannot be prepared at home.

Solvents should be eliminated from extractions to ensure that they are safe to consume and only a certified technician licensed in a legally-regulated market can do this. Incorrect solvent extraction practices can be dangerous and may result in the release hazardous fumes or even explosions.

However, some solvent-free Dabs can be made in the home using cannabis flowers and basic household tools.
