Everything that You Need to Know About Dabs

Are you ready to elevate your weed experience? Dabs are popular amongst weed enthusiasts for an immediate, fast-acting, and potent high. In fact, research suggests that dabbing may produce a high that is up to 4x more potent than a regular joint.

Dabbing involves a concentrated form of cannabis, also known as shatter, wax, etc. There is a lot of misinformation in the weed community about dabbing. Although dabbing can provide an exceptional high, there are several precautions that should be advised. What is dabbing and is it safe?

The following informational guide will reveal everything that you need to about dabs, including the various concentrates available and how to dab safely.

What Are Dabs?

Dabs are concentrations that are extracted from the cannabis plant. During this process, butane is poured over the marijuana, and a sticky highly potent resin remains.

These concentrates come in several forms and are sold under several different names, including:

  • Crumble
  • Resin
  • Shatter
  • Wax
  • Etc.

How is Dabbing Different than Smoking Weed?

Never underestimate the potency of a concentrate. Dabbing is a significantly more intense experience than smoking weed.

Dabs provide a nearly instantaneous and potent high than smoking regular flower. A strong high can often be achieved, after hitting the dab only once, as compared to smoking an entire bowl or joint.

How Much Should I Take My First Time Dabbing?

Even experienced weed smokers can find themselves too high after overindulging with dabs. You should always take things slow when trying any new cannabis product, especially highly- potent concentrates.


1 gram of shatter, resin, or other dab-able oil contains nearly 25 servings. This extreme level of potency means that it will require very little to achieve your desired high, even if you are an experienced dabber.

Start with just a very small amount to avoid ingesting too much. Unpleasant side effects can result from too many dab hits, including:


  • Anxiety
  • Increased Heart Rate
  • Nausea
  • Paranoia

What Should I Prepare for My First Time Dabbing?

There are a few things that you do to prepare yourself for a pleasant first-time dabbing experience.  If you are landing at Harry Reid Airport and are searching for the nearest Vegas dispensary to begin, head over to Nevada Made Marijuana, just 3 blocks from the rental car center.  Park your car and go in and shop, or order dabs online  for pickup if you already know what you are looking for.  Once you are out of the car and at your hotel or residence, choose a safe, comfortable, and accommodating environment to enjoy the best experience for your first-time dabbing. 

Prepare by gathering food, beverages, and/or any other items that you may wish you had grabbed before you get high. You’ll be happy that you did if you end up unable to motivate yourself to move once you are high.

Dabs Vs. Cartridges

Cartridges are disposable vaporizer pens that are often filled with small concentrates that are used for dabbing. These convenient pens are an easy and discreet way to enjoy THC on the Go. Cartridges also produce a more consistent dosage of euphoric compounds.

Bongs are used for dabbing. This allows you to ingest varying amounts of vapor making it especially important to take it slow.

Dabbing Safety Tips

  • Dab highs hit hard. Sit down, relax, and take it slow.
  • Never attempt to manufacture dabs on your own. The dabbing extraction process is highly dangerous and could cause a fire or explosion.
  • Always purchase your shatter and other dab concentrates from a reputable cannabis dispensary.
