7 Tips To Dabbing Like A Pro

So you recently got your medical marijuana card, or finally tried cannabis for the first time in your recreational state, and now you keep hearing people talk about, “taking dabs.” Aside from some cheap and outdated dance moves, you’re not really sure what they’re talking about.

Lucky for you, we’re here to help. Cannabis concentrates are the new frontier for stoners and cannabis patients everywhere. Getting started on them can be confusing though, so we’ve put together a quick list of seven tips to dabbing like a pro.

1. Have the right tools (including silicone mat)

To start consuming cannabis concentrates, you’re going to need more than just the oil or wax. If you want to start dabbing like a pro, you need to make sure you have all the right tools. Make sure you have a dedicated piece for concentrates, as using a pipe which you also use for smoking flowers will affect the pure flavor that everyone loves about concentrates.

On top of a dedicated dab rig, you’re going to need a nail or banger, a dome or carb cap, a dabber, and a torch lighter. The process of dabbing might seem pretty daunting at first, but once you watch a video or two, or enlist the help of a knowledgeable friend, it’ll come much more easily.

2. Use gloves to protect your concentrates

You might end up feeling like a mad scientist as you break out your concentrates with a pair of lab gloves on, but they’re absolutely necessary. Cannabis concentrates are sticky like honey, so they pick up dust particles from the air, oil from your fingers, as well as bacteria.

If you want the cleanest dab possible, it is essential to always wear a pair of gloves when handling your dab oil or wax. Who wants to have sticky fingertips anyway? Besides, the fewer bacteria going into your lunges (whether vaporized or not) the better.

3. Clean your rig regularly

There is a certain level of appreciation that marijuana smokers and enthusiasts have for the smell and flavor of the cannabis plant. It can be grassy, nutty, citrusy, woody, spicy, and more, but the downside to smoking is that those wonderful flavors are tainted with the taste of, well, smoke.

Dabs have become so popular because you don’t get any smoke flavor. But if you don’t clean your piece, that flavor starts to taste more and more like old, stale, nasty bong water. So make it a habit to clean your rig!

4. Invest in an electric nail

This may not be for everyone. In fact, it’s not for everyone. Only pro dabber will have an E-nail. These are essentially just a nail that heats up without having to use a torch lighter, and they tell you exactly how hot the nail is, so you can dial in the perfect temperature for each dab.

5. Dab at lower temperatures

Speaking of finding the perfect temperature for each dab, when consuming cannabis concentrates —especially if you’re new— make sure that you dab at lower temperatures. The higher the temperature, the less taste you’re going to get, and the more it’s going to burn your lunges —which is something everyone should avoid.

This is one reason why it’s so important to have an E-nail, but if that’s not possible for you right now, try waiting longer after you’ve heated up the nail. A few extra seconds can make all the difference.

6. Don’t take huge dabs

While a big attraction to dabbing is in the pure, unadulterated taste of cannabis, it’s also popular because it’s extremely potent. Because of this, you need to be careful the first time you take a dab, otherwise, you might end up having a dizzying (rather than relaxing) experience.

7. Dab with friends

As we mentioned earlier if you don’t know how to dab, ask a knowledgeable friend. Watching someone else and then trying it yourself is one of the easiest ways to learn —not that it’s extremely complicated.

Dabbing with friends also gives you someone to talk to and split a pizza with later on!


Dabbing might seem like a confusing process, but it’s certainly worth the extra investment of time and attention. If you follow these seven tips, you’ll be dabbing like a pro in no time.
