Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last five years or so, you’re well aware this thing called dabbing. If you don’t know what dabbing is, you should probably get out more. There are lots of reasons why seasoned tokers are putting down the pipe and switching to dabs.
The High Is More Potent
The main reason that you’re smoking weed is to get high, right? The high that you get from dabbing is so much more potent than the high from smoking flower. Don’t get me wrong, smoking herb is great, but with dabbing you’re taking in THC concentrates, so there’s almost no comparison.
It Also Lasts Longer
In addition to a dab high being more potent, it also lasts longer than smoking flower. When you take one bong hit how long does that high last (I know, I know, who stops at one bong hit, bear with me here)? For me it probably lasts about twenty minutes or so if it’s really dank herb, and obviously a lot less time if it’s mid-grade herb. Compare that to a hit from a dab rig, which is probably going to last three times longer. The first time I took a dab, I was high for a good hour and a half!
I have mixed feelings about resin. On the one hand, it’s gotten me through some tough times, but on the other hand, it tastes like shit. Even if you don’t smoke resin, you still have to deal with it when you clean your pieces. With dabs, there’s no resin; instead you have claim. Claim is way easier to clean out of your rig, and you can actually use it, like put it in edibles or re-dab it. Also unlike resin, there’s no shame in claim!
No Bong Water
Perhaps one of the biggest advantages that dabbing has over smoking flower is that you don’t have to deal with nasty bong water. Water in a dab rig doesn’t get gross in the same way that bong water does. With dab rig water you don’t have to worry about that nasty smell permeating everything if you accidentally spill it. You also don’t have to worry about sucking it into your mouth when you’re taking a giant rip.
No Stale Smoke Smell Or Taste
Nothing (outside of the taste of bong water) tastes more unappealing than a stale hit. The way that a lot of dab rigs are set up, the smoke is recycled through the rig the entire time that you’re taking your hit. This means that your hit never goes stale. Dabbing also doesn’t leave behind an odor the way smoking bong bowls does, so you don’t have to deal with the smell of stale smoke. This is especially beneficial if you’re in a living situation where you have to keep your habit on the DL.
Don’t get me wrong, I still enjoy smoking flower. If I’m lying on the couch and I don’t want to move, it’s way easier to just pick up my pipe, than mess with a blowtorch. You can’t deny the awesomeness of dabs though. So, put down that pipe and try dabbing. It will change your life.
