Here are the topics we’ll be covering:
The Purpose of Dabbing
The goal of dabbing is to consume the wellness benefits of a CBD-based or THC-based concentrate through smoking and inhalation.
This is completed by lighting a concentrate on fire to create smoke, commonly referred to as vapor; a much more bioavailable wellness intake method.
Furthermore, when adding high heat (fire) to the concentrate, it will also burn off the active acid molecule from the cannabinoid. This leaves the dabber with a different cannabinoid. A purer, more potent cannabinoid.
Here is an example of the above:
THCA is non-psychotropic (no euphoric high involved) while THC minus the “A” is, as you know, very psychotropic.
TYPES OF CANNABIS/HEMP CONCENTRATES
As you probably already very well know, the types of products needed for dabbing are Cannabis/Hemp-derived concentrates.
We’ve listed the two most popular and widely used concentrates below:
TOOLS & DEVICES
In this “budding” hemp market, there are many THC as well as CBD products hitting the retail market. Question is, how do you choose which one is best and/or reliable?
Remove that worry from your conscience.
We’ve done the research and here are the tools and where you can buy them that we absolutely recommend for a successful dab experience:
- dab cartridge
- dab rig
The only thing we really need to stress here is to make sure that the cartridges you purchase are clearly labeled that it can be used for dabbing and not only for vaping. This is very important because the right cartridge comes with a larger opening allowing you to get your cannabis concentrate into the cartridge.
We pitch the vitalness of the above because it’s actually the very first step in our following section which offers a comprehensive step-by-step guide on how to dab properly.
Now that you know the purpose of dabbing, the types of Cannabis concentrates available as well as the tools/devices needed, we can now share our step-by-step guide which will teach you exactly how to dab from A-Z.
STEP 1: heat up your dab rig using a torch

The work is done and now, all you have to do is lay back, relax, and enjoy your dab.

FINAL THOUGHTS FROM THE AUTHOR
Founder & CEO at Cannabidiol Life
I really do believe that the term “CBD dabs” came from pure coincidence and was completely accidental. Check it out, here’s the scenario in my head:
THE BIRTH OF DABS (possible conversation/scenario):
- The Question: “How much cannabis concentrate are we supposed to smoke?”
- The Answer: “Um, just do a small dab to be safe.”
It’s possible, right?!
