Gram for gram, cannabis concentrates have a far greater proportion of THC — the chemical that makes you high — than raw cannabis flowers. That means that one puff of concentrate off a dab pan is much stronger than one puff of flower from a joint, so make sure to start slowly.
How to Consume Concentrates
Cannabis concentrates, extract, and resin can be consumed in a variety of ways, including:
- On their own
- Sprinkled in a joint to increase potency
- Incorporated into a batch of edibles
Most commonly, concretates are consumed on their own through the use of dab rigs (enhanced water pipes) or dab pens.
Dabbing the process of heating concentrate to a critical point so that it vaporizes, producing an extra potent vapor that someone can inhale. As we mentioned earlier — this isn’t your usual bong hit — so take it slow.
Check out this quick guide to get the dosage right:
- For a Small Potency Boost: Sprinkle on a joint or on top of a bowl
- For Intensity & Fast-Acting: Dab out of a dab rig
- For a Light, Mobile HIgh: Use a dab pen (also known as a vape pen)
