Now that you know what a “dab” is, its time to cover what to do with them. In order to use a dab, they must be heated on a very hot surface. This surface is called a “nail” and is often made of ceramic, glass or quartz.
When heated, the smoke and vapor from the dab is inhaled.g” This entire process is called “dabbing”, and while it has been around for a while, has recently been picking up traction as a popular way to enjoy the flood of cannabis concentrates hitting the market. Recycler Bongs
How Dabbing Works
Dabbing involves a way to smoke concentrates using convective heating rather than conductive heating. Convective heating is healthier, smoother, and more effective because it doesn’t “burn off” and waste the essential and active ingredients in the concentrate. By burning the materials at a lower temperature, and via indirect heat rather than direct flame, the user experiences a higher concentrate of psychoactive compounds, and a cleaner, purer, better tasting hit.
Dab rigs rely on a process involving two key steps. First, a torch heats up the main surface (also known as a “nail”), next, a concentrated “dab” is placed on the surface of the heated nail. Finally, you inhale the resulting vapour through the mouthpiece, just like you would with a regular pipe.
