Teach me how to dab, teach me teach me how to dab…
If you’re ready to graduate from a beginner to a more advanced toker, this post is for you.
Dabbing: what is it, and what’s so great about it?
Dabbing is a slang term for inhaling the vapor from concentrates that results from melting butane, or even solvent-less methods that use ice water or dry ice to extract the good stuff. Because the oil or wax is much more concentrated than plant, a single dab packs much more of a punch than a pipe or vaporizer. It’s also easier on your lungs, as it doesn’t involve inhaling from the butane lighter or taking in any smoke.
Ingredients needed for dabbing:
1. Extract of choice. Wax, oil, or any form of concentrate will do.
2. Oil rig. An oil rig is a water pipe designed for taking a dab. You can also find attachments that will hook right on to your basic pipe. Oil rigs come in two basic styles – the skillet or the nail. A skillet and dome rig attaches to a swing arm with a dome above it that leads to the downstem of the piece. A nail and globe rig consists of a nail made of glass, quartz, or titanium and a glass globe piece that encases the hot nail and contains the vapor.
3. Dabber. The dabber is a small glass or metal piece that is used to dab your extract onto the hot nail or skillet.
4. Handheld torch. You’ll need a small handheld torch or butane lighter to heat the hot nail or skillet before dabbing.
And you’re ready to dab! The process itself is fairly simple. Heat up the hot nail or skillet, and wait until it’s super hot. Take your dabber and scoop up some concentrate. Rub the concentrate onto the hot surface. Watch the vapor fill the pipe and inhale. Unlike smoking or vaporizing, you will immediately feel the difference.
