You have probably heard about dabbing: superheating a “nail” to vaporize concentrates like wax, shatter, or isolates. Dabbing is a great way to consume high doses of THC (or CBD, for that matter), but it can be intense for the uninitiated.
If the whole blowtorch thing weirds you out or the price tag of a quality desktop dab rig seems steep, don’t write off dabbing just yet. Did you know you can smoke dabs with a load-your-own style vaporizer pen?
Don’t get it twisted: we personally find dabs to be highly enjoyable and we recommend anyone try one before swearing them off entirely. That said, you don’t NEED a dab rig.
This is because, technically, a ‘dab’ is just a small dose of concentrate. This essentially means that no matter where you heat it up, you’re dabbing. If you already own a portable vaporizer, read on for pointers on how to use it for dabbing as well as oil-based concentrates.
If you’re looking for your first pen, there is no need to spend more than $60 – $100 for a reliable, quality vaporizer. There are many different vape pens on the market, and they all work in generally the same way (despite what the enormous range in price points would suggest).
