A Guide to Dabbing
Dabbing is another way to consume cannabis. Unlike the traditional bong which uses cannabis flowers, dabbing uses concentrates. Dabbing is gaining popularity because it gets you higher than bong hits or smoking a joint.
What is Dabbing?
Dabbing is when you place a small amount of the concentrate on a very hot pre-heated surface, usually referred to as a nail. Once the nail is heated and the concentrate has been dropped, then you inhale a cannabinoid-potent vapor through the mouthpiece of the rig. A dab rig is a glass pipe chamber, similar to a bong. The main difference is a dab rig primarily uses a banger or nail, rather than a bowl. There are many sizes, shapes, designs, for dab rigs. Many medicinal users will dab because the physical impact is immediate, leading to fast relief. The high is also said to last longer.
Difference in dabbing and smoking cannabis bud
For new users or even novice bud smokers, dabs may be too overwhelming. The high-THC content can make you really high if you have a low tolerance. Dabs may be ideal for users looking for strong, immediate, and long-lasting and stronger relief.
Flowers, on the other hand, provides consumers with an equally fast onset of effects. Cannabis flowers may not have as high a THC concentration as dabs, but it can be just enough to give users a mild buzz.
How to clean your rig
Once you’re done enjoying your dab rig, it’s important to clean it. Cleaning your rig ensures you will always get the best flavor out of your concentrates and that your rig will function properly every time you use it.
Most of the time, if there’s not a lot of buildup, a basic cleaning is all you need. You can use a stove or kettle and water. Heat up a couple cups of water till it’s warm but not so hot it would hurt your hands.
- Soak your rig in the water.
- Rub away the gunk with a q tip or pipe cleaner,
- Rinse and repeat.
Alcohol and Salt
If the basic method isn’t getting the gunk off, you can try alcohol and salt. For this method, all you need is a container with a tight lid, enough isopropyl alcohol to cover your piece, and a few tablespoons of salt to add some scrubbing power. Now, put the lid back on the container, tight, and shake. A plastic container is a better idea than glass so you can shake it vigorously without breaking the container. When it’s nice and clean, rinse it thoroughly in clean water and let it fully dry before using it. Make sure you get ALL of the alcohol and salt off of your rig before using it or you will irritate your lungs.
Now that you know what dabbing and the different between dabbing and smoking a joint, as well as how to clean it, it’s time to get your cannabis concentrates. Cannabis concentrates come in a variety of strains and types. Find one that you like at EliteBudsBC online dispensary.
