Top-Shelf CBD Concentrates  

Are all CBD concentrates created equally? No. But most agree that in terms of texture, flavor, and quality of effect, a well-crafted CBD shatter takes the cake.   

However, its important to understand that concentrates will vary in potency and quality depending on numerous factors.   

The most important of those factors is the starting material. In short, a CBD concentrate can only be as good as the original hemp flower used to make it.   

This is true regardless if it’s shatter, crumble, or just plain CBD oil. Pro tip: Always check for third party lab results on concentrates to confirm potency and purity!  

Whats the recipe for a great concentrate? Start with a high potency strain that has great flavor, make an excellently executed extraction, and youll end up with something worth sharing.  

But making a concentrate using low-quality CBD hemp flower will simply result in a low-quality concentrate regardless of how well its made.

How Do You “Dab” Concentrates?

Dabs, dabbing, or taking dabs refers to the act of consuming CBD concentrates that vaporize rather than combust.   

Dabbing concentrates requires a dab rig or a dab pen, and excludes concentrates such as kief and hash that combust into smoke rather than vaporize. 

What is a Dab Rig?  

A dab rig is a specialized type of pipe or bong designed with a nail that has a flat head used for placing the concentrate to be dabbed.   

A flame torch or electricity is used to heat the nail. When it’s hot enough, the concentrate is placed on the hot dab nail, instantly sublimating into a vapor that is immediately inhaled through the dab rig or bong.    

This is the most basic explanation of dabbing. Once you get into dabbing though, theres an entire world of technique, tools, and etiquette to discover.   

Should I Use A Dab Rig?  

A dab rig usually sits on a tabletop. Dab rigs can be very simple or insanely complex and artistic. The benefits of using a dab rig are generally related to enhancing the overall experience of dabbing and getting the most out of your costly concentrates  

But they also offer other advantages such as making it easier to take higher dosages. Plus, the vapor is cooler in temperature making it more flavorful.
