Many people do not understand exactly what dabbing is and how it works. In South Africa, dabbing is not as popular as taking cannabis oils orally. Dabbing refers to a specific method used to ingest a cannabis concentrate. What exactly is a dab, you may wonder? A dab is a dose of cannabis concentrate that is heated and then inhaled through a device known as a dab rig.

What Exactly are Dabs?

Dabs are super-concentrated doses of cannabis. They are made by extracting all the tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and cannabidiol (CBD) compounds in a cannabis plant. The extraction process creates a product that can resemble glass (known as shatter) or a honey comb wax (known as wax). Dabbing is a controversial way of getting your cannabis quota for the day. It is extremely strong and can contain very high levels of THC which make you high. The concentrated cannabis is called Butane Honey Oil (BHO) or Butane Hash Oil. The cannabis plant is soaked in butane which is then heated until the glass-like mixture occurs. CBD and THC are extracted using this method. It is not the purest way to access cannabinoids, however.

What Are The Medical Benefits of Dabbing?

Dabbing is an extremely effective method to deliver high doses of THC or CBD oils to patients who are in chronic pain. Dabbing offers the patient almost instant relief from pain and discomfort. People choose dabbing as it is so effective – it involves the consumption of a highly concentrated dose of THC in a short space of time. The results speak for themselves – similar to an injection vs a pill.
