Pros and Cons of Dabbing
Nowadays, cannabis consumption is very popular and widespread among people throughout the world. Dabbing is one of the preferable types of marijuana consumption. But how does it differ from other ways, and what are the main pros and cons of dabs?
WHAT is Dabbing?
In general, Dabbing is vapourizing condensed cannabis, probably in the kind of Wax or Hash, by putting it on a highly hot metal element, which is known as a Nail and breath in the fabricated vapors.
HOW are Dabs made?
The process of Dab making is rather easy. First of all, the Nail is warmed through the Blowtorch. Breathing this Harsh and condensed form of cannabis can induce someone to cry and rub somebody’s teardrops off while cougHing and using a Bong.
WHAT are the reasons to dab?
Actually, there are several reasons why people dab. They are:
- When you cannot fall asleep;
- When you just want to do it;
- When you need to relax your body;
- When you need dab effects;
- When you want to get high.
WAYS to Dabbing (Dabbing equipment)
1. “Absolutely Universal Titanium Nail”.
Actually, you can take any Titanium Nail with all dab rigs or water pipes, if there is a Glass on the junction. Match that with the long-running grade of a “Titanium Nail” and you’ll get it.
2. “Quartz Banger Nail”.
As the Dab Nail takes the chief impact of the warming from your “Butane Torch” during Dabbing, the device is not ideally defended. When you Dab for several years, the “Vapor Bong’s Point” will start to loosen. Add to your Bong needful place with a “Quartz Banger Nail” that has a special basin hanging at an Angle far from the junction.
The coolest thing of smoking is that it leads a constructive usage to the long-immersed “pyromania”. The Torch is usually utilized to warming the Concentrate Nail, thus it can evaporate the Wax. A qualified Torch provides a firm hold and heaviness.
4. “Silicone JAR”.
Actually, Dabs can be quite adhesive that is disgusting. The large toughness of Concentrate Wax seems that it’s hard to pill up while melted, what happens without heating because of its lower melt temperature. The one stuff, which melted Concentrate Wax will not adhere to is “Silicone”. It makes a “Silicone Jar” an indispensable part of Dabbing.
In fact, you will need a tool to pick up the Concentrate for the Dabbing procedure, which is called a “Dabber”. They can be in all the standard smoking stuff: Titanium, Glass, Ceramic, and Quartz. As for Glass and Quartz, they are good for esthetic and warmth-resistance, but still, they aren’t as hard-wearing as Titanium. However, titanium is not only durable, but also, it conducts the warmth. As for the ceramic, it is something medium: not as powerful as Titanium but it is much powerful than Glass and Quartz, and does not conduct the warmth too much.
6. “Carb Cap”.
Actually, to warm a Nail is not an easy deal. A lot of dabbers have lost out on valuable extracts because of the under-heated Nail (that can lead to slowly flaming extract that cannot be completely breathed in) or the over-heated Nail (that can lead to quickly flaming extract that instantly evaporates and pollutes the Nail). A “Carb Cap” can compensate for Dabbing faults by coating the Nail and in such a way picking any arising steam.
7. “Dish & Dabber Set”.
Nowadays, you can find different tools for dabbing process. That is why it will be better to purchase your equipment in special sets. Dishes afford an appropriate receptacle to put your liquid dabs during the smoking process. With the help of such sets, you’ll not need to pick an accurate quantity of extract while dabbing.
8. “Reclaim Catcher”.
A running component of dabbing tries to maximize the quantity of steam that is breathed. Of course, a lot of dabbers are not satisfied that valuable extract oil can be lost while leaking into the junction. “Reclaim Catchers” are the Glass stuff, which branches out of the corresponding sized junction, and includes a Dish that is joined to the bottom of the junction. Basically, all surplus extracts will get into the “Reclaim Catcher’s Dish”, and it can be reused later. Moreover, it prevents your junction from marking by oil.
9. “E-Nail Kit”.
Actually, the future is coming! Forget about simple Nails and try E-Nails. E-Nail combines the importance of an extract Nail and a Butane Torch. E-Nail comes with the Power Box, which you can insert into any outfall. You can choose the temperature for the Nail and wipe out the extract when it is ready.
10. “Honey Bucket”.
Basically, you can control the airflow. The more you shut off your steam and make a void, the more of a potent breathe you’ll have. The “Honey Bucket Nails” add some guarantee that you’ll gain the best out of your Dab. You need to warm the Bucket of the Nail, put Dabs in the center of the Buckets, put down the Buckets into the domes with the handles, and then coat them with your “Carb Cabs”. It will make an ideal void and your steam will not escape.
