What are Dabs?

Fundamentally, “Dabs” are hash. Unlike traditional hashish, the term describes hash extracted with Butane, Carbon Dioxide, Nitrogen, or Solventless. Thus, “Dabs” are a more potent form of hash that comes in varying forms. Like traditional hash, extract artists use techniques that ultimately pull out resin, trichomes, and THC, binding them together for a far more dense and potent substance than cannabis. Unlike hash, the “Dab” extraction process is a more thorough approach that maximizes the concentration of the THC present in cannabis.

How Does One Dab?

There are three main methods to consume dabs. The first two methods use a rig (which we will have on sale 7/7-7/10!), a modified traditional water bong sculpted for dabbing. The first rig method utilizes either a titanium, quartz, or ceramic nail and a standard kitchen blow torch. The torch heats the nail up and then a “dabber”, which is just a usually glass or titanium vehicle to place the dab.The consumer heats the nail up with a torch, and then uses a “dabber” to place hash on the heated nail. The Dab then vaporizes (not melts!) and a THC-filled smoke cloud fills up the rig and enters the consumer’s lung. The second rig method uses an Electronic Nail (an “E-Nail), which plugs into an outlet and electronically heats up a rig. The third and final method is through portable vaporizers, on to which has is placed and an electronic, battery powered vaporizer heats up the Dab.

Types of Concentrates

WATER HASH

Water hash is a production technique that uses dried or fresh-frozen plant material mixed with cold water and ice, then agitated through manual or mechanical means to remove trichome heads. The result is filtered through special screens and can achieve potency between 50-80% THC.

BUTANE HASH OIL

The most common cannabis extraction technique used today, butane concentrates are created by pressurizing butane and washing it over dried or fresh-frozen plant material. The solvents are then removed using heat and vacuum, resulting in THC levels between 60-90% THC.

CO2 OIL

Using compressed carbon dioxide at high pressures, this method strips essential oils from cannabis plants and produces an orange-tinted oil that tests between 50-75% THC.

ROSIN

Rosin is extracted from dried buds, trimmings, or lower grade concentrates like water hash or kief. Once the essential oils are extracted, the result is an oil-like extract similar in appearance to higher-quality water hash or solvent-extracted concentrates with a similar THC content.

KIEF

Kief is among the most straightforward and simple forms of concentrates and consists of the trichomes at the outside surface of a cannabis flower. Using specialized removal screens and manual labor, the crystalline coating is removed from the dried plant. High-end extractors can produce kief concentrates ranging in THC content from 20-60% depending on a variety of factors.

Why is 7/10 National Hash Day?

marijuana Tacoma oil-dabs

The answer is simple, 710 upside down spells out OIL, which is a common acronym for Dabs and a form that dabs are often taken in. With the legalization of marijuana for medical and recreational use in many states across the US has greatly popularized July 10th as The Day of Dabs. So whether you are a life-long marijuana connoisseur or just beginning to enter the cannabis world, join us on July 10th for specials , delicious local food , awesome deals on Dab rigs, and a whole lot of celebration at The Gallery!
