Dabbing is a method of consuming cannabis concentrates that involves heating a small amount of the concentrate on a hot surface, then inhaling the resulting vapor.
There are several types of cannabis concentrates that can be used for dabbing, including THC-a diamonds, live resin, dry shatter, and rosin.
THC-a diamonds: These are crystalline formations that contain extremely high levels of THC, often reaching 99% purity. They are made by isolating and purifying the cannabinoid THC-a, then allowing it to crystallize. The resulting crystals can be quite large and resemble diamonds or other precious stones.
Live resin: This is a type of concentrate that is made from fresh cannabis plants that have been frozen immediately after harvesting. Because the plant is frozen, the terpenes and other volatile compounds are preserved, resulting in a product with a strong flavor and aroma.
Dry shatter: This is a type of concentrate that is made by extracting the cannabinoids and terpenes from dried cannabis flowers. The resulting product is a brittle, translucent sheet that can be broken into smaller pieces or "shattered."
Rosin: This is a type of concentrate that is made by ice water extraction, heat and pressure from whole plant fresh frozen flowers. The heat and pressure cause the cannabinoids and terpenes to separate from the hash material and collect on a surface, where they can be scraped up and collected. Rosin is a solventless product, making it a popular choice for those who prefer solventless concentrate.
Overall, dab products are known for their high potency and strong effects. They should be used with caution and in moderation, as they can be very potent and may have a stronger effect than other forms of cannabis products.
