What is a Dab?

what is a dab
AA dab is simply cannabis concentrate.
Most of the plant material has been removed and you are left with a much more potent product.

Dabbing vaporizes the concentrate when heated.

"While bud tends to test between 15-25% THC, concentrates typically range between 50-80% THC, depending on the extract type and quality."
-Bailey Rahn of Leafly

So What Do You Need to Get Started Dabbing?

  • Dab Rig -This is your water pipe or bong- just make sure it has a fitting for the banger.
  • Quartz Banger -The quartz banger will last and ensures the highest quality flavor.
  • Dabber -This is the tool you will need to place the concentrate into the banger.
  • Carb Cap -The Cap will help to regulate the airflow.
  • Torch -A mini torch to heat up the banger.
  • Cannabis Extract -The most important part-your concentrate (Hash, Rosin, Shatter, Wax)

Don't Overcomplicate It.


It's actually pretty simple. If you have used a water pipe and a bowl, you're good.
The effects are, however, much more powerful.

With that being said- you may want to be sitting down in a comfy spot to start.

            You will see it will show spots of glowing red once you see that stop heating your nail, you don't want it to be all red-hot.
            Once your nail is heated, let it cool down for about 60 seconds

             Carb caps are essential.

            When dabbing at lower temperatures you want a carb cap to ensure that your concentrates are vaporized and nothing goes to waste.

            Carb caps simply restricts the airflow in your quartz banger for a low-temp dab.
