If you’re interested in dabbing, you’re in for a treat. This form of cannabis consumption is becoming more and more popular, and for a good reason – it’s amazing! But if you’re new to the scene, it can be a little daunting to know where to start. This blog will show you how to get started with dabbing, and it will also give you tips on choosing the right equipment, finding quality concentrates, and taking your first hit. So read on and learn everything you need to know about starting in the world of dabbing.
Choosing the Right Equipment
When dabbing, the first thing you need to do is make sure you have the right equipment. You’ll need a water pipe (bong), a nail, a dome, a butane torch, and a dabber (a tool used to apply the concentrate to the nail). If you don’t have all of these things, you can easily find them online or at your local head shop.
When choosing a water pipe, it’s essential to make sure that it’s big enough to accommodate the nail and dome. Most nails and domes are around 10mm in size, so you’ll want a water pipe with a 14mm or 18mm joint.
As for the nail, you can choose between titanium, quartz, or ceramic. Titanium is the most popular choice for nails because it heats up quickly and retains heat. Quartz is also a popular choice because it’s a good conductor of heat, but it doesn’t retain heat as well as titanium.
Ceramic nails are not as expected, but they do have some benefits – they hold heat longer than titanium and quartz nails and don’t corrode.
For bangers, it’s a personal preference, each one has its unique properties, but choosing a premium quartz banger will come in handy. They are the most popular because they heat up quickly and don’t lose heat as quickly as titanium, but they are also more expensive. Ceramic is a good option if you’re looking for something affordable, but it takes longer to heat up and loses heat faster than quartz.
As for the dome, it’s essential to choose one that fits tightly on the nail. If the dome is too big, it will let smoke escape, and you won’t get a good hit. And lastly, the butane torch is used to heat the nail. You can buy a torch specifically for dabbing or use a standard kitchen torch.
Finding Quality Concentrates
There are many different types of concentrates available on the market, so it’s essential to research and find one that suits your needs. The three most popular types of concentrates are wax, shatter, and oil.
Wax is a solid concentrate made up of THC and CBD crystals. It’s the most popular type of concentrate because it’s easy to use and has good flavor.
Shatter is a transparent concentrate made up of THC and CBD crystals. It’s more potent than wax, and it has a clean, smooth flavor.
Oil is a liquid concentrate that is made up of THC and CBD. It’s the most potent type of concentrate, and it has a strong flavor.
It’s important to note that not all concentrates are created equal. You should research and find a reputable supplier who sells quality concentrates.
Taking Your First Hit
Now that you have the equipment and the concentration, it’s time to take your first hit. The first thing you need to do is heat up the nail with the butane torch. You’ll want to heat it until it’s red hot – this can take anywhere from 30 seconds to a minute. Turn off the torch once the nail is heated and let the nail cool for 20-30 seconds. This will allow the concentrate to vaporize properly.
Next, use the dabber to apply the concentrate to the nail. You’ll want to apply a small amount – around the size of a grain of rice. Once you’ve applied the concentrate, put the dome over the nail and light the torch. Keep the torch-lit until the dome is hot, then inhale slowly, hold for about 10 seconds and exhale.
You’ll know you’ve taken a good hit when you feel the effects of the cannabis concentrate. The high from concentrates is much stronger than the high from the smoking flower, so be careful not to overdo it. Start with a small hit and work your way up until you find the perfect amount for you.
What to Do if You Get Too High
If you happen to get too high from dabbing, you can do a few things to help. Here are some tips:
- Drink plenty of water
- Take a hot shower
- Eat something sweet
- Wait it out
Dabbing is a great way to enjoy cannabis concentrates. It’s essential to have the right equipment and to find quality concentrates. Once you have everything you need, taking your first hit is easy. With a bit of practice, you’ll be dabbing like a pro in no time.
