“Dabbing” refers to the process of making a marijuana extract called “wax” or “rosin” that is more concentrated than it would be when smoked. The trend is quite young and that’s why not many people know how to make their dabs at home. In our shop you can find the items that you need for this.
Making cannabis dabs, though, isn’t nearly as complicated as it looks like at a first glance. Let’s take a look at some of the items you need to make your weed extract, and then we’ll proceed to show you how to do it.
- A hair straightener
- Parchment paper
- At least 1 gram of weed
- A pair of tweezers
- A bong
Instructions on Getting the Dab
For starters, you should set your hair straightener at a low temperature. 2750 should work just fine. Place 1 gram of cannabis on a piece of parchment paper and fold it in half.
Now place the paper between the prongs of the hair straightener and squeeze it for 5 seconds, as hard as you can. When you take the parchment out, you’ll see that the liquid that got out from the bud has crystallized.
That’s your dab. Collect the resin with a pair of tweezers and that’s it: you’re ready to get yourself high. Keep in mind that dabs are usually taken with a dab rig, which is basically a small bong-like item that you heat up with a torch in order to melt that resin. Read also How to Smoke Shatter Dabs.
If you don’t have a dab rig (to be honest, not many people do), you can just roll the shatter – as it’s also called – into a joint.
You should know that rosin, shatter or wax, however you call it, can have 90% or even more THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis. Subsequently, it will really stone you.
It’s one when you smoke a joint and a whole new thing when you smoke a dab. Of course, the high concentration of THC is what appeals to many weed–enthusiasts in the first place.
If you don’t have a high tolerance to THC, you shouldn’t smoke a dab until you’re 100% sure you can handle the extreme high. You don’t want to be locked on your couch for 2 days, do you?
As mentioned previously, cannabis dabs are the ultimate fashion fad in the marijuana smoking environment. If you want to get really stoned in like maximum 10 minutes, this is definitely the way to go.
Obviously, the more weed you have, the more wax you’re going to get. If you’ve got friends that smoke cannabis on a regular basis, consider pooling your stashes in order to get as much rosin as possible.
Then share it all. This is not the kind of weed you want to smoke alone. You definitely want your friends to have as much fun as you. Use Atmos RX Complete Portable Vaporizer Kit for Waxy Concentrates and E-Liquids and Atmos R2 Portable Waxy Concentrate Vaporizer Kit for such goals!
