How to Dab


Once you get set up with a rig and your preferred concentrate, place a tiny amount of the concentrate in/on the dabber. Make sure that you are seated and comfortable so as not to get jarred or risk dropping or spilling.

Next, turn on your torch and direct it towards the center of the nail. The nail should be heated with the torch to the point where it’s red-hot. The time it will take to reach that temperature will depend on the size of the nail, the material its made from and the room temperature. Recycler Bongs

Once the nail has reached the optimal temperature, leave the torch alone and put the dome over the nail. The nail should cool for at least 10 seconds, or longer if it’s quartz. Once it’s cooled a bit, use the dabber to place the dab on the nail, let the magic happen, then inhale slowly and with consistent suction/force.

After you take a hit, don’t forget that both the nail and dome will still be quite hot, so wait a while for them to cool down before handling, or have a fire resistant surface such as a metal pan or countertop to place them on while they cool off.

The ideal temperature for dabbing is about 315 to 450 degrees F. This temperature generates maximum flavor and potency of the hit. That said, its ok to experiment.

Be sure to inhale only small amounts and go slowly at the start, since concentrates are – well, concentrated! All of the cannabis products discussed in this guide are potent, and tend to result in a stronger, more impactful high as compared to smoking the plant itself.
