The newest growing trend for cannabis enthusiasts everywhere is commonly known as dabbing. Defined on urban dictionary as the process of taking cannabis extract known as Butane Hash Oil and heating it against an oil rig and inhaling the smoke.
Extracts have been tested with up to 90% THC levels. Taking one dab hit is said to be the equivalent of smoking three bowls. Dabs are concentrated doses of cannabis that are made by extracting THC and other cannabinoids by using a solvent like butane or carbon dioxide, that results in a sticky oil also commonly referred to as shatter, wax, butane hash oil, honey, and CO2.
While it's possible to extract non-psychoactive compounds like CBD, THC is what's behind the potent effects of dabs, making them the fastest and most efficient way to get really, really medicated so first time dabber be careful.
Dabbing can be dangerous. Mainly the extraction process can be dangerous with makers using harsh chemicals that ignite easily. The process has received such negative backlash that led to a comparison stating dabs are the crack of pot. Be sure when purchasing concentrates they have been lab tested for your safety because not all concentrates are harmful. It's good to know the more bright yellow a concentrate is, the better quality it is.
