The Joint Seatac’s Dabbing Cannabis Quick Start Guide

Dabbing cannabis concentrates is exploding in popularity, but getting started is much more complicated than just sparking a pre-rolled joint. It involves obtaining the proper glass rig set up and all the accouterments that include a butane torch, carb cap, and cannabis concentrates. The easiest way to get started with all this gear is going to your local glass shop and asking a lot of questions, it’s embarrassing, but you won’t learn about dabbing culture in a better way.

Once you have your set up, check out this cannabis dabbing quick start guide and enjoy the world of cannabis concentrates.

Dabbing For Dummies

  1. Load a dab of concentrate on a dab tool. Dab tools are usually just metal dentist tools. Some get fancy and design them as samurai swords or lightsabers.
  2. Set your loaded dab tool aside and heat your nail with a torch.j Heating length is widely debated among concentrate users, but low-temperature dabs will provide you with the best flavor, and you can always reheat your nail and burn the rest if you change your mind. When you heat up an average quartz nail until it’s red hot, you want to let it cool down for at least 60 seconds. Set a time to nail this cool down time consistently; Errl’s Dab Timer smartphone app is a great way to do this.
  3. Once the timer hits zero, grab your tool and place it on the nail until the dab melts off your tool (scrape the rest off the edges of the nail).
  4. Grab a carb-cap; place it over the nail and rotate it while inhaling. This retains the temperature and swirls the oil around the nail vaporizing the entire dab.
  5. Once you’re done with your dab, it’s time to clean your nail with q-tips. If you’ve properly completed a low-temp dab, there will be a warm brown puddle in your nail. Soak up most of this with one q-tip.
  6. Use the second q-tip to soak up a bit of rubbing alcohol to scrub the oil remains from your nail. This will result in small crackling and alcohol vapor escaping from the nail, this is completely normal.
  7. The final q-tip just cleans out the little bit of alcohol and oil remaining. I reuse this q-tip as the first on my next
