The Benefits of Dabbing

The Benefits of Dabbing

Part of what makes marijuana use so accessible and exciting is the variety of ways in which users can consume cannabis. From topical lotions to help sore muscles, edible treats to aid in sleep, vape pens to keep your mood up, or old-fashioned joints to take on the go—there really is no limit to the ways in which we can enjoy marijuana these days.

Even with the continual rise in popularity of marijuana, there are still some far less common and hardly known cannabis habits—such as dabbing. No, we are not talking about the trendy dance move you have seen all over popular culture (we’ve all seen the meme of Mark Zuckerberg making the all too familiar motion.) We are here to discuss one of the more recent additions to the ways in which we consume cannabis.

What is dabbing?

Dabbing is a method in which you drop a small amount of concentrated cannabis oil onto a hot surface and let it vaporize, enabling you to get the potent flavor and effects.

The extraction process to create dabs can be complicated, which is why it is best to leave it to the professionals and purchase safe and reliable dabs at dispensaries such as MedMen. Once extracted, the concentrate comes in various forms, most commonly looking like taffy or wax.

So, why would you want to venture into dabbing?

Cannabis concentrate is very, very pure—it contains between 50% and 90% THC, tetrahydrocannabinol, the compound within cannabis that gives you the high. Commonly done using a glass pipe, dabbing can be a bit daunting. But rather than get into the nitty gritty and the how, let’s go back to the why.

Is dabbing safer than smoking?

When it comes to dabbing versus more traditional marijuana consumption options, dabbing is actually cleaner in a chemical sense because cannabis concentrate is free of plant matter, meaning that it is also free of the harmful carcinogens that are a byproduct of smoking the plant fibers.

Because of this pure form, dabs have stronger flavor and can cause a more intense high. Whether you are suffering from chronic pain or just want to gain a boosted cannabis experience, dabbing offers up an exciting and immediately effective alternative to normal marijuana consumption.

Faster, stronger, and less harm done to your precious lungs: needless to say, the benefits of dabbing are certainly worth exploring.

Dabbing is best done using concentrate that is consistent, free from pesticides, and trusted, which is why MedMen sells only the best. Shop MedMen and check out the selection in one of our cannabis dispensary stores today.
