Your Easy Guide to Doing Dabs

When it comes to ways to enjoying your cannabis, there are all kinds of ways to go about it. You can use a water pipe, you can use a regular pipe, or you could even bake your weed in an edible. These aren’t the only ways to enjoy it, however, and there is one method you should definitely be aware of if you really want to maximize the effects of your cannabis.


This method is known as dabbing, and if you have the proper setup, doing a dab is very easy – and highly enjoyable. If you are brand new to the world of doing cannabis dabs, here is an easy guide for you to follow so you can give it a shot for yourself.

1. Get the right gear.

In order to dab properly, you are going to need to make sure you have some wax and a dabbing rig. You will need a torch, a nail, and a dabber. All of this (except for wax) can typically be obtained by buying a dab rig at your local dispensary. If you aren’t sure what you’re looking for, just ask your budtender about dab rigs – he or she will be able to point you in the right direction.

2. Portion the wax out that you would like to dab.

Take some of your wax, and separate it out by how much you would like to dab. Inexperienced dabbers should start off with a lower amount. Set your dab of wax on the dabber, and prepare to heat your nail.

3. Heat your nail and apply it to take your dab.

Once the wax is on the dabber, simply heat your nail up using your torch, and apply it to the dabber to heat up the wax. Once smoke is in the chamber, take the hit to clear it, and then exhale. Give it a few seconds, and you should begin feeling the dab.

This is your simple guide to doing dabs. As you can see, it is a fairly straightforward process if you have the right gear, and it is many cannabis users’ favorite way of taking their wax. Stop by your local dispensary, pick up some dabbing supplies if you are interested, and see if it is something you might enjoy.
