If you are a newbie looking to improve/enhance your dabbing experience, you’ve reached the right place. In today’s post, we will try to cover all your doubts. But before that, let’s learn the basics.

What is dabbing?

In layman’s terms, dabs are concentrated forms of herbs that you get high. They’re made by extracting the chemical compounds in the herb and mixing them with certain solvents.

And dabbing is a modern way to enjoy your herb. You can heat the dab oil using nails and inhale it using dab pens & dab rigs. There goes the explanation. Now let’s learn how to improvise dabbing.

Use Gloves

Concentrated THC aka dab oils can get sticky. You wouldn’t want to touch the heated oils with bare hands. It’ll be slimy and sticky. Another problem to consider is contamination. When you touch dabs with the bare hand, there’s a strong chance you are contaminating the oil. This contamination can lead to dilution and poor dabbing experience. You wouldn’t want that!

Learn to control the temperature

You might have read or seen several terrible stories of people doing it wrong. A lot of these stories are concerning government bodies and society as a whole as well. 

Always let the dab nail cool after the heating process. Overheating can cause the concentrates to combust, which can lead to serious health hazards.

When a dab rig is smaller, your hits will be more potent. A bigger rig imposes the risk of less potent hits and more filtration. So we recommend you opt for smaller rigs for a smooth and rich experience.

Use a quartz nail or banger

A dab nail provides a reliable option to consume essential oils. You can heat a nail with a torch or electronic heater. Once it’s heated enough, you can place a dab of wax to produce tasty flavorful vapors. Whereas a banger is one of the many options of a dab nail. The bangers come in a flat and swan-necked design. More like a hammer of course.
