Looking for a better way to get high? Although dabbing is daunting for beginners, it’s a great way to maximize your stash and extend your dollar. To help ensure you have a great first dab experience, we put together this article to help teach you how to take a dab in a safe, and fun way.

How It Works

The process of dabbing refers to the flash vaporization of cannabis concentrates. The concentrates you can use to dab (shatter, wax, BHO, oil, etc.) are a lot more potent than marijuana flowers, so remember that a little bit goes a long way. For example, Bud tends to test between 10 to 25% THC, while concentrates typically range between 50 to 80% THC.
Dabbing isn’t for everyone. The dosing process is much more delicate than cannabis, making a little more difficult to manage. Keep in-mind that a small dose is tiny, essentially less than a breadcrumb.

What You Need

Dabbing technology is evolving, but the traditional setup includes the following items:

Cannabis extract
These come in a variety of forms, the most common ones used for dabbing are BHO, CO2, and rosin.

Water pipe
You can take the glass bowl pieces out and replace them with dabbing attachments to turn your pipe into a dab rig.

Most importantly, the nail you need has to fit your water pipe’s gauge.

A Dome
The dome piece is just a tiny element that covers the nail.

Mini kitchen torches can be used, but if you’re looking to upgrade you can use a larger propane fuelled torch that heats the nail faster.

A Dabber
This is the glass, metal, or ceramic tool used to apply a dab.


Once the rig is set up and your dab is prepared, you can start the process. The rush of dabbing is intense, so it’s better when you sit down.

  1.  Turn on your torch and aim the flame directly at the nail.
  2.  Once the nail is hot, place the glass dome over the nail. Let the nail cool for about 10 seconds.
  3.  Take your dabber, apply the dab directly on the nail inside the dome, and inhale slowly.
  4.  Take a breath and get ready to enjoy!
