More “Dabbing 101”

If you are curious about the new world of cannabis concentrates, our friends over at Green Flower Media have some interesting offerings on the subject.  Here’s one:


“With concentrates, the margin for error is less than with flower. It’s always better to underestimate than to overestimate what you think you can consume,” Shen says. After all, too large of a dab can be a recipe for disaster. Even for long-time cannabis consumers, dabbing can be an intense, uncomfortable experience if they take too much.

“It’s a crawl, walk, run kind of methodology,” says Shen.

So if you’re considering dabbling into the world of dabbing (no pun intended) here are 3 three things to consider beforehand:

a.) Assess level of THC or CBD in concentrate – Before consuming, assess the total concentration of THC or CBD present. Levels can vary widely depending on the extraction process along with the properties of the actual cannabis strain. If you are acquiring your concentrates from a dispensary, request to see lab-test results if you want to be 100% certain about what you’re consuming.

b.) Take a micro-dose initially – Unless otherwise advised, it’s wise to take a single dosage when dabbing. The potency can be overwhelming initially, so start out small and increase over time if necessary. How small? When measuring out your concentrate, a good starter dose will be about the size of a grain of rice. Maybe smaller.

c.) Monitor reaction over time – What are the long-term risks of dabbing? We still don’t know. One of the first scientific studies on dabbing found that in the short-term it was just as safe compared to cannabis flower. Although the researchers did point out issues with THC tolerance or even withdrawal symptoms as a potential risk.

As we all know, too much of anything comes with its own risks.
