The world of CBD concentrates is growing and their popularity in the UK is almost matching that of the USA. They seem to be the choice of cannabis contours who enjoy the richer, cleaner flavour of an extract combined with the power it of cannabinoids which cannot be matched by anything else. While the USA ‘dab; culture is heavily for the high THC user, there are some fantastic CBD alternatives which do not come with the same psychoactive effects.
There is a perception that concentrates can only be consumed by using what is commonly referred to as a ‘rig’ – or a ‘bong’. The rigs are generally made from glass and are big contraptions where you blow torch a glass component until it is hot enough to vaporise the concentrate. You then ‘dab’ it onto the glass, place in your stopper and inhale the vapourised cannabinoids. It is the classic Instagram stoner vibe.
While many, many people get really serious about the glass-ware they use and can be almost ritualistic about it, there are many people who would like to enjoy the power and flavour of a concentrate without the need of a rig. Some also do not like the look of a serious rig, but would enjoy the flavour and to vape their CBD.
As technology has advanced, you are now able to purchase a portable rig that can fit in your back pocket, and doesn’t require a butane lighter like something like the Dyna Vap: the Dab Pen is born.
What is Dab Pen?
A dab pen is one of the most exciting things to come out of the dabbing community – it is basically a little portable rig in the shape of a pen. There are millions of little vape pens which use CBD concentrates, but dap pens are specifically designed for the conasour of sorts. They are slightly more powerful and have a lot more versatility. They are easier to clean, and significantly more sustainable.
Not dissimilar to a vape pen (often known as a weed pen). The dab pens are designed specifically to heat a cannabis concentrate like a wax, crumble, sauce or diamond to their ideal temperature while on the go.
Most of the leading dab pens on the market use an electric heat element and an atomiser so you don’t need to get out your blowtorch/ butane lighter to heat up a huge chunk of glass that you need to drag out from the cupboard under the stairs. They make the act of ‘dabbing’ much easier and convenient. You can still enjoy the clean flavours, and powerful cannabinoid dose, without the hassle.
For those who are accustomed to dabbing, you may be surprised to know that they are just as easy to use as a vape pen, but you get a much cleaner and richer terpene flavour, with the power of a dab rig. All you need to do is load your pen up for the day, press a button and there you go
In short, you get all the benefits of dabbing, without the negatives.
