Dab Temperature Preferences Search for Perfect Point Between High and Low

Dab Temperature Preferences Search for Perfect Point between High and Low

When it comes to dabbing, the question of temperature comes up a lot. There’s a lot of debate about what dab temperature will produce the best high. Low-temp dabs have become more and more popular these days, while the intensity of high-temp dabs still remains the ideal choice for some. Some people like to dab because at a lower temperature it can be a healthier option than smoking while others prefer it for the rush.  When it comes down to it, this is a personal preference but it’s a decision that should be made only after having a full understanding of the different dab temperatures and their specific effects.

The Heating Point of Cannabinoids

Every concentrate is different with a different chemical composition. The two main compounds in cannabis (also known as cannabinoids) that people seek to ingest are THC and CBD. Both of these cannabinoid compounds have boiling points below 400 degrees F which means that the hotter you burn these, the more they are likely to simply combust rather than produce the effects for which they are known. CBD is known for its anti-inflammatory, pain relieving properties as well as its ability to create a sense of calm, working to combat stress and anxiety. THC is the psychoactive compound in cannabis, known for its ability to inspire creativity and for its euphoric effects as the compound that makes you feel high. Concentrates contain high levels of these compounds in varying degrees and combinations. For the best effects from the dab, you want to be sure these aren’t destroyed through delivery.

The Impact of Terpenes on Your Dabs


The heating point of certain cannabinoids must be taken into consideration.

Another major factor to consider is how terpenes contribute to the effects of your concentrates. Terpenes are the compounds in cannabis and other plants and fruits that contain essential oils, the smell and flavor of the plant. The terpenes also have their own therapeutic effects that contribute to the effects of the cannabis. For example, limonene, a terpene with a citrus taste and smell that is found in Lemon Diesel and other strains, also has the ability to be a mood elevator, produce positive feelings and be uplifting. It is also known to reduce stomach acid. The boiling point for this terpene is 349 degrees F, at which point it will combust and cease to deliver the goods.

The Importance of Knowing Terpene Boiling Points

Every strain of cannabis and its corresponding concentrate has a number of terpenes also present that contribute to the physical and emotional effects of the strain. Terpenes generally have a boiling point that is somewhere between 310 and 390 degrees F. Pinene, which has a pine-like taste and smell, is an excellent expectorant, bronchodilator and anti-inflammatory that is very good at clearing the mind and helping with focus. Its boiling point is 311 degrees F, however, so any dabs that are too hot will destroy this terpene. Linalool, a floral smelling terpene that is also present in flowers such as lavender, is an excellent relaxant with an ability to very effectively treat anxiety and depression. It has a higher boiling point of 388 degrees F. Even at this higher boiling point, the temperature is still relatively low. The threat of combusting the beneficial and psychoactive properties of the cannabis has a lot to do with what dab temperature might be best for you.

Avoiding Carcinogens

combustion can release carcinogenic toxins when the dab temperature is too high

Combustion can release carcinogenic toxins.

Another factor not to dismiss is health. Carcinogens are created that are toxic to the body when cannabis is heated at higher temperatures. Some of these carcinogens such as acetaldehyde, are class-one carcinogens, which are known to cause cancer. Acetaldehyde forms when temperatures reach 446 degrees F. Other carcinogens such as benzene, toluene, and naphthalene are created at 392 degrees. This is a major point of consideration for many and the reason a lot of cannabis users converted to vaping rather than smoking cannabis. Temperatures are lower when vaping and the process is deliberately designed to avoid boiling terpenes and cannabinoids as well as avoiding the ingestion of carcinogens.

Knowing Your Dab Temperature Range

With all of this in mind, you can take a look at each dab temperature and understand its pros and cons.

Low-Temp Dabs (300-330 degrees F)

At this dab temperature, you will experience the dab as a burst of flavor filled hot air. This is a vaping dab temperature. You may not even see any of the vapor. It might take quite a while to burn through all the concentrate and it’s best to take slow, deep inhalations. If you don’t have an e-nail to measure the temperature, you may be able to gage it by lighting the nail to the point of it becoming red hot and then allowing it to cool for anywhere between 10 and 30 seconds. Trial and error may be necessary to get the right timing for your rig and torch. You will need a carb cap if you have a domeless rig. These will cover the nail and keep the heat trapped so that you can take your time and get all of the concentrate to slowly vaporize. The high this creates is mellow and nice. It’s also less likely to get you too stoned. It is a healthier way to dab that avoids the ingestion of carcinogens and allows you to get the full flavor and effects from your cannabis in a gentle way.

Standard Dabs (330-390 degrees F)

standard dabs heated between 330 and 390 degrees F are still considered on the low end of heating

Standard dabs heated between 330 – 390 degrees F are still considered on the low end of heating.

For many this is still considered a low-temp dab, but on the higher heat range. For those with a domeless rig, you can heat the nail to the point of being red hot and then allow it to cool for 7 – 10 seconds. This is the ideal dab temperature for giving you a powerful high without the carcinogens and without combustion being an issue. This creates a psychoactive high with powerful effects. At this temperature you can get the pain relieving, anti-inflammatory and general medicinal effects of your cannabis strain quickly and effectively. The high is euphoric and long lasting with full medicinal benefits intact and less risk of ingesting toxins. There is still a lot of flavor range (similar to the low-temp hit) and it’s less likely for residue to be left behind as the concentrate is more likely to burn up.

High-Temp Dabs (390+ degrees F)

For those who want an incredibly intense and psychoactive high quickly and powerfully, high-temp dabs are the way to go. Some people even go for 1000 degree F dab hits to get the most intense hit possible. At these high temperatures, the terpenes and cannabinoids are affected and carcinogens are created and ingested but for some the quick and powerful high is worth it. The high lasts for less time but it is very strong. Another plus is that all the concentrate burns up on the nail without leaving behind residue.

Now that you know a little more about dab temperatures and their effects, you can have some fun experimenting with which works best for you.

Carb Cap Benefits Prevent your Concentrates from Floating Away

Carb Cap Benefits Prevent your Concentrates from Floating Away

The world of dabbing is relatively new. Yet, in a short number of years, it has taken off in both popularity and evolved exponentially. Dab rigs just keep advancing to make the experience of dabbing better and better and the caliber of concentrates keep rising in quality too. Dabbing has become popular due to its ability to make you much higher than just smoking weed. When the concentrates burn, they create vapor rather than smoke which is also much healthier to consume. But it’s the high that is really impressive, which is why so many people work hard to make the experience as pleasant and easy as possible. The quality of the high speaks for itself. So one essential item to cover in the world of dabbing that makes so much difference to the experience (yet is not talked about much) is the carb cap. What is it? What does it do? And do you actually need one?

Dabbing 101 for the Rookies

The first thing to touch base on is: what is dabbing? Then we can discuss the necessity of the carb cap. Dabbing involves heating a cannabis concentrate until it releases a vapor that is then inhaled. Concentrates are just what they sound like. If you take cannabis and just take all the delicious cannabinoids that produce the effects of the cannabis, you will have a concentrate. They come in a lot of different forms but generally will come in a wax form or a resin that is still sticky or has turned hard. Hash is also a kind of concentrate. The concentrate is then heated on a nail or any other kind of more recently developed rig. The resulting vapor is the inhaled. A carb cap exists to cover the nail so that vapor doesn’t escape.

It’s Easy to Waste Vaporized Concentrates

using a carb cap can conserve your wax

Carb caps can prevent loss of vaporized concentrates from hot dab nails.

For anyone who’s dabbed, you’ll know that wax that is sitting on a hot nail may take a while to burn and then continue to smoke even after you’ve had your hit. In this scenario, the vapors are likely to just float off the nail and into the air as opposed to your rig and that precious goodness is just lost at that point. A carb cap creates a seal that stops the remaining vapors from escaping after you’ve had your initial hit so that you can go back and enjoy them when you’re ready. This allows you to get the most out of your concentrates with ease.

Allowing You to Savor Your Concentrates

The advantages of being able to contain the vapors under your carb cap can actually change your entire dabbing experience. When the wax on your nail is too cold, the vapor burns very slowly and this makes it really difficult to take in the full hit at once. But with a carb cap, you can actually enjoy a cooler dab because it won’t matter that your wax is burning slower. You won’t be under any pressure at all to consume every last little bit of wax in one giant go. You will have the luxury of taking your time to enjoy your dab. This makes the experience of dabbing much safer and easier as well because you won’t need to work so hard heating the dab to the highest possible temperature. Instead, you can take your time and enjoy your hit at your leisure.

Flavor Saving Capabilities

flavor saving capabilities of a carb cap

Using a carb cap can also help to preserve the flavor of your dabs.

Lastly and possibly most importantly, the flavor of your dab will be immensely improved with the use of a carb cap. The flavor of the concentrates and cannabis in general exists in the terpenes which are compounds that exist in nature, plants, flowers and fruits that produce smell and flavor. When terpenes are heated too high, they combust and cease to produce that desired taste or smell. Having the ability to enjoy a cooler dab means not needing to overheat the terpenes in order to produce vapor. This means that the terpene profile of your concentrate will remain intact and you will be able to enjoy the full flavor of your concentrate.

The Beauty of the Low Temperature Dab

Most experienced dabbers know that being able to enjoy low temperature dabs is a goal. Low temp dabs taste so much better. The high is more complete as the cannabinoids that deliver the effects of cannabis, THC and CBD in particular are not combusted or damaged by high temperatures. The result is a full flavor powerful high. On top of this, low temp dabs are less likely to mess up your dab rig. High temperatures can cause damage to nails made of materials such as glass that can’t cope with certain levels of intensity when it comes to heat. So what kind of carb caps are out there and which are the best kind to get?

What to Look for in Your Carb Cap

You will most likely want one that has a little hole in it which basically helps to produce a suction from inside the chamber. This creates a vortex that cools and traps the vapor within the carb cap. They are generally made from the same material that nails are made from including glass, quartz, titanium and ceramic. They all work the same way but they may take a couple of tries to get the right flow going for you. As far as the material goes, it’s just a matter of personal preference. They generally have a hollow rounded cap with a pointed kind of handle that can also be used as a dabber tool. Of course, you must be sure you’re using the carb cap on an open air system which is basically when the concentrate is solely heated on a dish or nail.

When it comes to dabbing, you want to get the best possible hit and make the absolute most out of your concentrate. A carb cap is definitely a must in order to achieve the best possible dab. Finding one that is high quality and in your budget range will greatly improve your hits and protect any delicate pieces. For those who are serious about dabbing, a carb cap is a must. The best approach is to do some research and get the best kind for you.

Enails Help You to Get the Most Out of Your Concentrates

Enails Help You to Get the Most Out of Your Concentrates

Vaping technology has become the latest craze, when it comes to smoking and for good reason; it’s a much healthier alternative to combustion and it is generally easier to use and transport an esmoking device than it is to carry all the necessary equipment for smoking around with you. It also allows you to smoke in public and indoors undetected and prevents second hand smoke being passed along to those around you. So it’s no wonder that with the latest trend towards dabbing that enails would be developed to assist the dabber in having a better experience.

Getting to Know the Main Components of Your Enail

beneficial aspects of using an enail for dabbing

Enails are nails for your dab rig that heat electrically.

So what is an enail? An enail is a metal box that has a port for a heating coil and a Proportional-Integral-Derivative (PID) that gauges the temperature of your coil. The gauge is usually separate from the coil so that you can see how hot it is regardless of whether or not it is turned on. This helps to prevent users from getting burned. The coils come in two different sizes and will only work with nails designed for those sizes. They are usually either 16 or 20 millimeters wide. You can set the temperature on your coil and a huge bonus in using enails is that the temperature can be set and maintained in a steady way. You will also want to use a carb cap. Throwing it on top will make the chamber fill with smoke when doing a dab that is lower in temperature.

The Power of Temperature Control

In order to get the best hit from dabbing, users know that heating temperature is everything. Once you have your preferred choice of concentrate ready for heating, your butane torch needs to get that temperature right or the hit will be a miss. If it’s too cold, the concentrate will pool, giving off little to no vapor. On the other hand, if the temperature is too hot, the concentrates will burn too fast, giving you less of a hit that has a bad flavor. Getting the right balance is essential if you want to get the most out of your dabbing experience. This is a massive benefit in using enails. You can ensure that the temperature is perfect and the erig allows you to be in control of the temperature at all times.

Advantages Over a Butane Lighter

enail can help you save on expenses that go into butane torches

An enail can be less expensive over time than using a butane torch.

Butane lighters can be expensive and refueling them can end up costing a lot too. They are much harder to use as far as temperature control goes and they require you to wait for your nail to heat up and cool down which can impede the process of dabbing, in particular if you are busy or in a hurry. There is no way of truly telling that a nail has adequately cooled down and for this reason, burns are much more of a risk. Enails tend to simplify this situation, making your heating device constantly available along with temperature control.

Chemical Degradation from Overheating

THCA, is the compound in cannabis, that when heated, turns into THC, the psychoactive ingredient that is responsible for the high you get from consuming cannabis. A very important thing to note on this is that when THCA is heated too high it can degrade into cannabinol (CBN). CBN is only 10 percent as strong as THC and is much more likely to just cause sleepiness, dizziness and a general feeling of disorientation; not exactly the desired effect from dabbing. This is another reason why temperature matters so much. Low temperature dabs are so much more effective at getting the most out of your concentrate. Low temperature dabs use every part of the concentrate. They preserve the flavor and effect of the terpenes as well as deliver the highest possible dose of THC. When using a carb cap with your rig, a low temperature dab can even produce double the amount of vapor than a regular hit will.

The Value of Low Temperature Heating

enail can be ideal for the benefits of low heating

For the benefits of low heating concentrates, enails can be the perfect option.

Temperature is an enticing reason to start using enails but there are more. Another powerful advantage is the fact that your nail will stay a lot cleaner. Vaporizing is a much cleaner process than burning and will ensure that the concentrate you place in your nail is used and not left behind for you to clean. Being able to choose the perfect temperature for vaporizing your concentrate is also a help in this. The low temperature dab can give you a much smoother, gentler hit that is much less likely to irritate your lungs which is an added bonus for those who are dabbing for medicinal reasons.

Health Benefits of Vaping

On the note of health, vaporizing is much better for your lungs. Vaporization is one of the healthiest ways to consume cannabis and concentrates. When heating concentrates through combustion there is always a certain amount of toxic smoke produced. While dabbing is still healthier than smoking in this way, an electric vaporizer is definitely the healthiest alternative.

Conserving Your Concentrates

Enails also allow you to get the most out of your concentrate. Because you will be able to determine how hot to burn your product, you will be able to ascertain the best temperature for getting the most flavor and effect. The terpenes that contribute to flavor as well as the effects of the concentrate will become much more obvious to you when the concentrate isn’t being burned. As a result, you can have a much more enjoyable dabbing experience and make the most out of your concentrates. On top of this, you will also be able to experience the subtle differences in flavor and high from the various concentrates you try.

All in all, enails are a smart way to go for those who dab on a regular basis. They save you time by keeping your nail cleaner and save your health by keeping your lungs and body healthier. They save you money and enhance your hit by allowing you to get the most flavor and effect from your concentrates, preventing your dabs from being too cold or hot and wasting precious concentrates. They save you time and money on butane lighters and may even prevent burns. For all these reasons, enails are a good investment for dabbers and worthy of further research to see if they are right for you.

Shatter Wax Can Be Used in Your Vape Pen with This Easy Liquidizer

Shatter Wax Can Be Used in Your Vape Pen with This Easy Liquidizer

As concentrates grow in popularity, so do the ways you can both prepare and consume them. One of the popular ways to consume concentrates is through the use of vaporizers which allow you to get an evenly measured dose without over doing it. But concentrates come in many forms and a lot of them are not usable in a vape pen. Getting concentrates in a usable liquid form can be expensive and are sometimes harder to come by. That’s where this product changes everything. It allows you to liquefy your shatter or wax so that you can consume it on the go. It can turn $100 worth of sold concentrates into $800 worth of vape cartridges. And it easily does this without losing any quality or substance.

Retains Smoothness and Taste

This wax liquidizer won the 420 Pony Product of the Year Award for 2016.

Usually when herbal oil or concentrates are added to vape mixes, the vape juice separates into layers. This is not the case with this solution. It allows you to create an E-juice that is smooth and even, giving you the best possible vaping experience. The process of liquefying shatter wax and other concentrates is incredibly fast and easy, yet this doesn’t impair or effect the quality of the oil. In fact, it is even smoother and tastier than before it undergoes the liquefaction.

Further Advantages of Using Liquidizer for Shatter Wax

One of the benefits of a vape pen is being able to smoke where you please and bypass nonsmoking laws. This is also the case when you use shatter wax and other concentrates in your vape pen. Since wax liquidizer comes in flavored varieties, you can choose the flavor and settings you like and smoke anywhere you’d like. You can find wax liquidizer in flavors such as Banana OG, Grape Ape, Strawberry Cough, Original, Ice Hit and Pineapple Express. These can be used to make your smoking experience smoother and more discreet. The Wax Liquidizer comes in a small container, making it perfect for travel. It only takes seconds to work which also makes it ideal for use on the go. All in all, it opens up the options for consuming concentrates and using your shatter wax in creative and portable ways.

What Comprises Wax Liquidizer?

The ingredients for wax liquidizer aren’t found on its official website, but according to Dabs Mag who contacted the manufacturer, the compound is made from propylene glycol (PG) and its derivatives, PEG200 and PEG400. All of these ingredients are categorized as “Generally Recognized as Safe” (GRAS) by the FDA and are “used in many food, medical and baby products.” Propylene glycols are usually what are used to make liquid nicotine and liquid hash for vape pens. They are also a source ingredient used to make injectable and topical medications from diazepam and lorazepam.

Reasons to Vape

most wax pens only accommodate concentrates softer than shatter

Shatter needs to be softened before it can be used in most wax pens.

There are lots of reasons to use a vaporizer as opposed to smoking. The first is an obvious one that we’ve already covered which is its portability. Using a vape pen is a lot easier and more portable than having to lug around alternative means of smoking shatter wax. The smell is disguised and this serves to increase all the places you can smoke it. But this isn’t the only benefit. It is much healthier to vape than to smoke. Vaping involves heating the shatter wax to the point of turning the active ingredients, such as THC, the psychoactive compound in cannabis, into vapor. The alternative is to burn the shatter wax and turn it into smoke.

A Cleaner High

The issue with burning cannabis is that it creates carcinogens through combustion of the plant. This creates the smoke which tends to also contain a number of harmful toxins that can irritate the body, especially the lungs. Vaping, heats the product in a way that reduces carbon monoxide intake and increases the intake of the active compounds, like THC, that you actually want to be ingesting. The result is a smooth and very powerful high that is healthier and cleaner than smoking yet still delivers the instant enjoyable high. It simply does it in a cleaner healthier way.

Benefits Overview

Which brings us to an overview of the benefits of vaping your shatter wax using the Wax Liquidizer.

  • Firstly, it is quick. It only takes seconds to liquidize your shatter wax and make it usable in a vape pen.
  • It’s extremely discreet and very portable. The flavors allow you to smoke it anywhere, undetected.
  • It will save you an enormous amount of money, since it will turn $100 worth of concentrate into $800 worth of vape cartridges.
  • It is smooth and tasty. It won’t separate into layers when the herbal concentrate is added. The flavors make the product all the more enjoyable to vape.
  • It is healthier than smoking. On top of this, it is free of nicotine and vegetable glycerin.
  • It will work perfectly in any vape pen, regardless of whether it is an atomizer or a tankomizer.
  • It contains ingredients that are approved by the FDA and are safe for consumption.
  • Vaping makes the best use out of your shatter wax as it heats enough to get the purest dose of THC from your product.

Usually, if you want to dab on the go, you would have to bring a dab rig with you which is not only difficult to carry around but also difficult to use or even light in public. A vape pen is a much more logical solution to consuming shatter wax and other concentrates on the go. With a product like wax liquidizer, that task gets even easier since it allows you to instantly turn your high quality concentrates into liquid for your vape pen. It’s no wonder that 420 Pony announced wax liquidizer as the winner of their 2016 420 Product of the Year Award.

It will save you time, money, risk and, on top of all this, it will save your health.

Dab Pens Demand You Scrutinize for Quality

Dab Pens Demand You Scrutinize for Quality

As smoking culture continues to grow with the legalization of marijuana across the country, more ways to consume herb become available. One method that is sweeping the country in popularity is dabbing. For the uninitiated, dabs are comprised of really high concentrations of the active compounds in cannabis that give you an often euphoric response. THC is the psychoactive compound that’s responsible for the euphoric feeling that cannabis brings. So dabbing gives you a much more intense experience of cannabis with a high like no other that hits you fast and lasts a lot longer. For this reason among others, its popularity has swept through the smoking communities, appealing to those looking for a heightened experience.

Dabs 101

dab pens offer alternatives to oil rigs in dab consumption

Dab rigs are not the only way to use dabs.

Dabs are not hash oil, which is another concentrated form of cannabis. Rather dabs are often hard, brittle resin that look like honey. Only the smallest amount is needed to be consumed to get the intense effects of the concentrated cannabis. Dabs are usually heated on a nail using a torch and the smoke delivers a powerful hit of THC. But this isn’t the only way to dab. As more people start to enjoy the experience of consuming concentrates, more convenient ways of dabbing have started to emerge. One of these ways is by using dab pens, which are small portable vaporizers.

For Those Who Have Never Used Dab Pens

This may be common sense to our regular readers but for the dabbing novices, dab pens are thin pen-like devices that contain a heating chamber inside for vaporizing concentrates like dabs or cannabis waxes. There is a mouthpiece for inhaling the vapor and the concentrate is delivered in a well-proportioned way so there is much less chance of getting too high. The dab pens come in all shapes and sizes but the most important aspect of their design is that they are extremely portable and very discreet. Dab pens look the same as the vaporizers used for smoking tobacco or for those using vaping to quit smoking. There are vape pens that are designed for vaporizing dry herb but these are different from dab pens in how they vaporize so it’s important when choosing a dab pen to get one that says it’s designed for concentrates and waxes as opposed to dry herb.

3 Types of Vaporizers

dab pens are one of 3 methods of using dabs

Vape pens are one of 3 popular methods of dab consumption.

In general, there are 3 types of vaporizers that can be used for dabbing. There are desktop units that are not portable but designed to vaporize large quantities of cannabis. These are often expensive, bulky and can’t be moved with ease. Then there are portable, handheld versions of these that use batteries to operate and can vaporize smaller amounts. Dab pens are the smallest variety of vaporizer. These are the most discreet and portable variety that will allow you to get a hit anywhere with ease. These are also the most affordable option when it comes to vaping. They are usually anywhere between $20 and $200 and their durability makes them withstand the trials of travel and excessive use. The controlled space for how much can be consumed at a time ensures against vaping too much and ending up in an unpleasant situation as a result.

What to Look for in a Dab Pen

When you’re ready to invest in a dab pen, you want to be sure that you’re getting exactly what you need. There are some essential factors to keep in mind that should greatly affect your decision. For starters, the biggest benefit of dab pens are their portability. So when purchasing one, you want to be sure that it’s the right size for you. You might want to reflect on what you will be using to carry your pen and that the size is right. Getting the right color may also be a factor if discretion is important to you.

Ways of Gauging Quality

Quality of course is something to factor. You want to make sure that your pen uses high quality materials like ceramic to heat your concentrates. Ceramic heating plates aren’t always the most durable option but they give the best flavor. They’re also very good at heating and will give you a nice, clean hit. A cheap heating coil will change the taste of your vapor. It may end up making your vapor taste like metal and ruin your dabbing experience. Dab pens with high quality heating materials will ultimately give you a smoother, better tasting hit with an overall improved dabbing experience. Dab pens are also used for heating oil concentrates as well as the hard concentrate called shatter. You want to make sure your pen has a wattage high enough to vaporizer the concentrates you expect to use so this is an important aspect to consider. Checking that you are using a company with a quality reputation may help you end up with a more reliable product.

Other Features of a Worthwhile Dab Pen Kit

alternative mouthpieces can bring new life to dab pens

Look for extras in your dab kits like high quality mouthpieces.

It’s important to make sure that your pen can be charged with ease whether via USB or via another method of your preference. Many pens run off rechargeable batteries so you may want to check how you will be charging your pen for future use. You will want your pen to give you the best possible battery life. It’s a good idea to check what accessories will come with your pen in general. You should check that the pen comes with an extra mouthpiece for example. Another good tool that is highly useful when it comes to dab pens is a dab tool. These are small devices that are used to help load the heating chamber with concentrates of wax. These accessories can be purchased separately but it is much more convenient to get everything you need as one solid package.

Reading the Fine Print and Doing the Research

Quality dab pens will come with a warranty which is helpful when buying any kind of electrical device. It’s often worth doing the research to make sure you find the best pen for you. Reading product reviews will help you to get a good sense of which companies will work for you. Spending a little extra to get a high quality product will most likely save you money in the long run as you will end up needing to use less product and not buy replacements.

Using dab pens for consuming concentrates makes the whole experience much easier, safer and can ultimately give you a better balanced hit. But it’s important that you get the one that will best suit your needs. Portability, discretion, long battery life and all the necessary attachments should be evaluated before taking the leap and investing in this new direction. When you have taken it all into consideration you will end up with a product that suits all your needs and gives that powerful high with comfort and ease.

Marijuana Concentrates Offer Many Choices – Which is Right for You?


‘Concentrate’ has become a widely used term in the cannabis industry that refers to a number of available products that are each quite different. Any weed product that has been created through an extraction process will leave behind a concentrate that is packed full of high potent cannabinoids. This could refer to under the tongue tinctures, CBD oils or wax for your vaporizer. The following are just some of the various kinds of marijuana concentrates out there on the market today and how they work. In this way, the wide world of marijuana concentrates might be made a little bit clearer.

1. Kief

kief is a granulated type of marijuana concentrate

Kief is the white, powdery, dry sift or pollen that is found on the trichomes or ‘hair’ on cannabis flowers. This is the sticky part of the bud that contains a high concentrated amount of the compounds that give cannabis it’s medicinal value. It is therefore extremely rich in terpenes and cannabinoids and the quality and nature of the high will depend on what plant strain the kief is collected from. It’s often used to make hash although it can also be collected and used as a marijuana concentrate. You can also place accumulated kief in a grinder to be sprinkled over ground cannabis to add potency to the hit.

2. Hash

hash is one of the oldest marijuana concentrates known

This is one of the oldest marijuana concentrates used throughout Asia, the Middle East and India for centuries. It gained popularity in the west during the 19th century when world renowned writers such as Victor Hugo, Alexandre Dumas, and Charles Baudelaire began using it in Paris nightclubs. Hash is a concentrate that comes from the resin of the plant. Kief is collected and tightly compressed to form the hash. The result is a sticky brown substance that is extremely strong and full of cannabinoids. It is not as strong as Butane Hash Oil but still very potent and a natural alternative to it that has been a part of cannabis culture for many years.

3. Butane Hash Oil (BHO)

bho is one of the most common marijuana concentrates on the market

Butane Hash Oil, commonly abbreviated as BHO, is a popular concentrate used for dabbing. It is extremely potent and should always be used with a degree of caution. BHO is made from concentrations of kief, like regular hash, only this kief is treated with butane as a solvent. The butane is used to extract the cannabinoids from the plant. The result is a concentrate that can actually exceed 80 to 90 percent THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that produces the high. BHO has a sticky, waxy consistency that can harden up to create “shatter” which is a brown, glasslike concentrate or “honeycomb” which is a more crumbly version of the hardened BHO.

4. CO2 Oil

co2 oil uses a healthier method of extraction than bho

This oil is harnessed using botanical extractors that use pressure and carbon dioxide to extract the cannabinoids from the plant and create a sticky, liquid concentrate. The benefit of this concentrate is that it is a healthier way of extracting the concentrate than butane. Other solvents like butane can leave behind metals and other toxic elements. This method is able to safely extract a concentrate that is low in toxicity while still doing the job. CO2 oil is used in many vape pens and is also sold in disposable cartridges.

5. CBD Oil

cbd oil is a non psychoactive cannabis extract

This edible oil is made from a concentration of the CBD compound in cannabis that contributes to a sense of calm and stability while also being a very powerful anti-inflammatory with pain killing, anti-spasmodic properties that can help with seizures and other medical disorders. The CBD compound does not make you high and these oils contain little to no THC. Therefore, people can use this concentrate without getting high and it’s perfect for children suffering from seizures and epilepsy.

6. Tinctures

cannabis tinctures use alcohol during extraction

Tinctures were one of the most traditional ways of consuming cannabis as medicine before it became outlawed in 1937. The cannabinoids are extracted from the plant using alcohol. The result is a liquid concentrate able to be safely applied under the tongue. Tinctures are a popular way in general of harnessing the medicinal powers of plants and tinctures of all varieties can be found in health food stores. Cannabis tinctures are a concentrated liquid form of cannabinoids that can be used as needed. As a bonus, these are now available in many different flavors from dispensaries and cannabis stores.

7. Budder

budder is a type of cannabis concentrate often referred to as wax

This concentrate is usually just referred to as wax and can be gathered using a variety of methods for extraction. The result is a substance similar to molasses in texture that can be used in vape pens or added to flower to give an extra level of intensity.

8. Rosin

unlike many other marijuana concentrates rosin uses no solvent during extraction

This is a wax that is extracted using heat. A popular method for extracting this wax is by placing a bud or flower between parchment paper and then placing it between a hair straightener and squeezing all the wax out of the flower to create a concentrate.

9. Rick Simpson Oil

rick simpson oil was developed by a noted cannabis advocate

Rick Simpson Oil is a recipe produced through an extraction method created by cannabis activist Rick Simpson. He used the concentrate to cure himself and thousands of others of cancer. The oil is made using the buds and flowers of the female cannabis plant. They are soaked in pure naphtha or isopropyl alcohol and, through this method, the medicinal compounds are drawn out resulting in a concentrated solution of medicinal compounds. He doesn’t sell the oil already made but instead has provided the public with the recipe for it. Many companies, however, have tried to capitalize on the recipe’s popularity by creating their own versions of the oil that are available on the market.

As you can see, there are many different varieties of marijuana concentrates available that can be consumed in a variety of different ways. These are only a few of the many varieties available. It’s always good to use a measure of caution when embarking on the journey of discovering the various marijuana concentrates and their medicinal or recreational uses. Dabbing will give the most intensive experience of a concentrate but it’s good to be moderate and execute caution. Having said that, there’s a lot of joy to be experienced using marijuana so enjoy!

Vacuum Purge Basics for Premium Homemade BHO


Concentrates have become extremely popular today as the popularity of cannabis in general grows and people discover new ways of enjoying the medicinal and recreational benefits of marijuana. The popularity of concentrates comes from the intensity of the high they are capable of delivering. Butane hash oil (BHO) is made from extracting high concentrations of THC from marijuana flower. It was done for the first time during the 1970s but didn’t really start to grow in popularity until the 2000s. The popularity of extraction has continued to grow since then, especially as more states legalize cannabis and more products become available to make the process of consuming concentrates easier and more enjoyable.

A General Disclaimer About Working with BHO

Keep in mind when working with BHOs that there are extremely flammable and even explosive solvents involved in the process. You have to be careful to keep the space well ventilated and be very careful of flames, spark and heat in general. You want to be very careful to avoid setting off a fireball that could quickly fill the room.

The Importance of a Thorough Vacuum Purge


mastering vacuum purge techniques gives your bho more purity

BHO purity can be improved through mastering vacuum purging techniques.

Part of the process of incorporating concentrates into your life is learning a little about the ins and outs of how they work and what gives them their purity. Unless a vacuum purge is done on a BHO product either before or after purchase, you will have a problematic concentrate on your hands. It’s important to realize that without the purge, some butane will remain in the product which is not what you want to be consuming. The residual gases need to be purged in order to get the high quality BHO you deserve.

BHO That Hasn’t Been Vacuum Purged

If you’re a fan of enjoying concentrates then you know that there is nothing worse than having to consume low quality BHO. It is often grey, tastes foul and is full of nasty stuff that you definitely don’t want to be consuming for your health. This kind of BHO has not been vacuum purged, illustrating the absolute importance of vacuum purging in order to get the best possible quality product for your consumption. When you vacuum purge your BHO, it boils away those nasty elements, solvents and impurities, leaving you with a purer, healthier and better tasting BHO.

The Targeted Atmospheric Pressure

When working to perform an effective vacuum purge, it’s helpful to understand the precise atmospheric pressure for which you’re aiming. The measurement is made through inches of mercury, commonly called inHG. With the levels in the tube or barometer at a setting of 1, the mercury will move up to 29.92 inches. This is the basic atmospheric level we are all experiencing, as it relates to sea level. When we vacuum purge our BHO, we are aiming to create an atmospheric pressure of -29.92 inHG. At this level, the BHO would be devoid of all atmospheric pressure. It’s not an easy measurement to get but this is still what we are aiming for during a vacuum purge.

The Right Vacuum Purging Equipment for Your Purposes

it pays to use top end equipment for your vacuum purge operations

High end equipment can be a worthwhile investment for shatter purification. 

A vacuum purge can be performed in several ways. There is a vast array of vacuum purging equipment available on the market. Of course, the more you are willing to spend, the better the purge is going to be. For those that will be consuming concentrates on a very consistent level, the quality of the purge may warrant that you purchase high quality equipment to use. For others that may be unable to shell out for the vacuum purge equipment, there are many processes for vacuum purging at home. It will take some patience, care and effort but it is more than possible.

Home Vacuum Purging Solutions

Some people have found that they are able to get effective results vacuum purging using equipment that is usually used to preserve food such as a FoodSaver 3460. The issue with this is that it can only go as low as -20 inHG. This means they will certainly improve the quality of the BHO but it won’t be as high a quality since it can’t achieve the desired -29.92 inHG desired result. You could also use a hand pump made for bleeding brake lines if you have a small batch and a small chamber. This technique may even create a lower pressure that could reach closer to -27 inHG.

Creating your Own Vacuum Purge System

You can also just make your own vacuum purge at home by putting together a few critical pieces. You can pick up a readymade vacuum chamber and then run it using a 2 stage vacuum pump. With your vacuum chamber, you want to be absolutely sure that you only use the highest quality silicone in the chamber. Cheap silicone has plasticizers in it that will wreak havoc on your vacuum purge, melting and spoiling your batch. Also be aware that the slightest crack in a glass vacuum chamber could become a problem under the pressure of the pump. Metal may be the best option here. With your 2 stage vacuum pump, you will be aiming for an oilers variety to stop the solvents from getting into the pump and being pulled back down into your concentrate.

The Process of Vacuum Purging in Action


setting up a home vacuum purging system can be easy if you know what youre doing

Setting up a home vacuum purging system can be simple if you know what you’re doing.

Before you start vacuum purging, place your BHO on a Pyrex dish. Place the dish on hot water that doesn’t exceed approximately 140 degrees, the temperature of hot coffee. Gently boil the BHO, scrape up the syrupy substance and place it on your silicone mat, being sure to keep it as thin a layer as possible. Place the silicone mat in the vacuum chamber. You can use parchment paper if the mat is too big. Seal up the chamber now and start pumping, aiming to lower the pressure to anywhere between -27 and -29.92 inHG. Place the chamber on a heating pad and after a few minutes let the air back in the chamber. Then seal the chamber and pump again. Do this until the BHO bubbles. Then allow the BHO to sit for 24 hours. You can repeat the process of creating the thin layer of BHO and vacuum purging it again, allowing it to sit for a few hours. You can also roll it up and put it in the fridge or freezer for a few minutes once it is done to allow it to get firm.

As you can see there are several ways to perform your vacuum purge at home. From Food Savers to hand pumps, there is something that everyone can use. The main focus should be on removing the gas bubbles that arise, which may mean taking a fork or dabber and popping the bubbles in a ventilated space until they are gone. Removing all of the butane may be difficult with a simple home technique but it will still help to make your batch healthier and purer.

THC Dosage for Concentrates Can Be Sticky Business


Dabbing is still such a new phenomenon that dosing can be quite a mystery. While generally speaking, people are told to start with the smallest possible dose, it’s hard to know exactly what that means. Most hash oils come in half gram portions but there’s still no tool to measure a dabbing dose. As consuming concentrates is already an intense experience that produces a powerful high, you don’t want that THC dosage to be any higher than necessary. There are steps you can take as a first timer to ensure that you stay within the limits of what will work best for you.

Read the Label


THC dosage labels are an easy means of figuring the strength of a specific concentrate. 

It may seem obvious but the first step is to read the label carefully. Most concentrate packaging makes an attempt to indicate how strong it is as well as give you a bit of a profile of your concentrate. There is usually information about THC content either in percentages or in milligrams. Sometimes they will also give you a terpenoid profile that allows you to get even more of an understanding of what flavor and effects your concentrate will have. The ratio of THCA to THC is usually given as well so that you can estimate the best THC dosage for you.


Estimating Cannabinoid Percentages

Most solvent based hash oils have between 60-90 percent cannabinoids with very few going higher than 90 percent although some solventless concentrates can have less than 50 percent. So what do these percentages mean? If your concentrate says it contains 60 percent, that means for every one gram it contains 600mg. If it says it contains 90 percent, that means every one gram it contains 900mg. It’s good to keep in mind that when consuming edibles, beginners are recommended to start with anything between 5-10 percent. Based on that, it’s important to start with the lowest dose possible.

Selecting the Right Dab Tool

finding the write dab tool essential to accurate thc dosage portioning

The right dab tool will make portioning concentrates easier.

The next thing you need to think about is what tool you will use for portioning your dose. There is absolutely no rule for this. There are an endless amount of dabber tools that exist in all kinds of shapes and sizes. The only thing that matters is how easy it is for you to use. A pointed dabber might be hard to use for portioning and a scooper doesn’t work very well with trying to break apart shatter. Generally speaking, dabbers with broader tips are the most versatile. These can generally handle concentrates in all kinds of consistency and give you more control.

Portioning Your Concentrates

Estimating what portion to start with is more a matter of math than anything else. If your concentrate contains 60 percent cannabinoid content, that means it contains 600mg in every gram. So if you take one gram and split it into six portions, then you know you’ll be consuming 100mg in each dosage. If you split it into twelve portions then you know you’d be consuming 50mg in every dose. The ease in which this is done depends on the consistency of your concentrate. If you need to divide a shatter, then heating your dabbing tool is all that’s necessary for splitting it up with ease.

Ways Around Portioning

Portioning can be a bit of a tricky process and you may not want to deal with the math, the mess or divisions. If this is the case for you there are other options. Vaporizer cartridges are already divided and measured for you. These give you an easy delivery method for knowing exactly what you’re getting. Free form hash oil cartridges give you more control and reduce the likelihood of having too much. They come in single hit options and they often give you a clear indication of how many hits each cartridge provides. This makes the process of getting the right THC dosage a no-brainer.

The Importance of an Accurate THC Dosage

when handling shatter accurate thc dosage is important

Accurate THC dosage is integral to patients. 

THC is the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana that may cause you to have a nightmarish experience if you have too much but it’s also the compound that will make you feel high in the first place. Since it’s the ingredient that will make you laugh, feel creative and euphoric, being sure to have a decent THC dosage is important but having too much will make you so high that anxiety, paranoia and other nasty effects can result. This makes checking the labels and dosage of your hit an important affair. You want the best experience and there is no rule for what dosage is best for everyone.

Staying Aware of Your Personal Chemistry

People’s bodies are different and as a result a THC dosage will affect everyone in a different way. A 25mg hit may feel very different based on your personality, psychology and body type. For this reason, it’s very important to start with a smaller dose. In fact, the smaller the dosage the better. You can always work up to a comfortable amount but you can’t work down once you’ve consumed too much. You will never be disappointed by consuming less as you can always have more. At that point, you can experiment to discover what the best dosage is for you.

What to Do If You Accidentally Have Too Much

If you do happen to consume too high of a dose for you, there are some simple things you can do. Firstly, don’t panic. The key with dealing with the anxiety that can come from a high dosage is staying calm. You will want to try and relax as much as possible. You may even want to lie down and recover before doing anything else. A shower or bath can also help you to maintain some peace. Play music or put on a T.V. show or film that relaxes you. Make sure you drink plenty of water and make sure to eat some nourishing food. Another trick that many people swear by is sniffing or chewing on black pepper! Many, including Neil Young, claim that this remedy almost immediately relives anxiety and paranoia. CBD oil may also be able to help since it combats anxiety and can balance out a high THC dosage.

If you follow these steps and experiment starting with the smallest possible dosage, you will no doubt find the best THC dosage for you.


Dab Nail Types Offer Different Dabbing Experiences


Dabbing is a fairly new trend in weed consumption that’s still new to even the most experienced pot smokers. The incredible high boasted has left many a novice chomping at the bit to experience this latest craze. But before you can get too carried away, it’s good to really understand what the difference is between each dab nail so that you can know what you’re getting into.

The Importance of Choosing the Right Dab Nail Material

This list explores the many varieties of dab nails and their pros and cons, from glass nails to an electric rig. The key factors to keep in mind when choosing a dab nail are taste and durability. You also want to get an idea of how fast a nail can be heated and how long it will stay hot. All of these things contribute to the ease and quality of your hit. Marijuana concentrates can be quite pricey and you don’t want your precious oil to go to waste so proper use of your dab rig is important and choosing a dab nail that you’re comfortable with is essential.

Glass Nails

The first dab nail we’ll examine today is the glass nail. Most rigs you buy will come with a glass nail. These nails produce a great flavor and they’re easy to clean. The main issue is that they don’t withstand heat well which also means they are a little tricky to heat. Heating your glass nail must be done slowly and with caution; otherwise they can break. This brings us to the general problem with all glass marijuana paraphernalia: they are incredibly easy to break. Generally speaking, however, you can always count on a glass nail to deliver a pleasant taste.

Ceramic Nails

Ceramic nails typically offer delicious tasting dabbing sessions though some frequent dabbers have complained about ceramic’s tendency to give off a somewhat overcooked taste.  One of the benefits of ceramic nails lies in their ability to stay hot longer so you can have multiple hits in a session without reigniting your torch. Ceramic is attractive and easy to clean but can also be very fragile. Like the glass dab nail, they may take longer to heat up and it may be more challenging to get them to heat evenly.


Quartz Nails

Now we get into a higher quality domain. The quartz dab nail is much more durable than the previous types described. The quartz nail has similar benefits to the glass dab nail only it is much more durable and can withstand higher amounts of heat. The flavor offered by quartz is as good and clean as the flavor gets. It’s only down side is it cools off very rapidly so you have to be quick when using a quartz nail. Generally speaking, quartz presents a reliable dab nail with delicious flavor.

Titanium Nails or “TI” Nails

domeless titanium dab nails are indestructible

Titanium nails are considered indestructible when compared to other materials. 

The titanium dab nail (also referred to simply as a TI nail) is another top of the range option. Titanium can withstand a lot of heat and also has great heat transfer. You must make sure that the dab nail you get is medical grade 2 titanium. Other types of titanium dab nails can be found on the market but they can be made with a lot of filler which leads to a bad taste. Because this dab nail can withstand a lot of heat, it doesn’t create the harsh or toxic fumes linked to other materials. They only take 15-20 seconds to heat up and then they stay warm longer once they’re heated. Best of all, they are indestructible. The only downside is that the taste can be a little metallic sometimes. Otherwise, titanium nails are a good choice for people that want something durable and easy to use.


Electronic Nails or E-nails

Electronic nails, often called e-nails, are the absolute top of the range dabbing apparatus to use but they come at quite a cost. These usually come equipped with a quartz or titanium dab nail and you don’t need to use a torch to heat them yourself as the heating mechanism comes built into it. For this reason, you can’t overheat or burn the oil and it allows you to choose your temperature so you can choose to do a low temperature dab which will allow you take in the full terpene expression. The downside to these is that they’re expensive, maybe running you up to a couple of hundred dollars. They’re also bulky which is not good for discretion or dab rigs that you use for their portable convenience.

Domed vs. Domeless Nails

domeless quartz dab nails heat up fastThe next thing to discuss when it comes to dab nails are the domed and domeless options. The first thing to understand is that the domeless nails already have ventilation holes built into them. They have good built in airflow and therefore don’t need any added pieces. On the other hand, the domed nails require an extra piece called a glass “dome” or a “hood” which collects the vapor so you can pull the vapor through easily.


Carb Caps

These are caps that are designed to allow you to control and retain vapor so that you don’t lose expensive concentrate unwillingly. Carb caps allow you to put a hit on hold so you can take a moment to regather yourself if necessary. If nail temperature is too low then the oil might just sit there evaporating. Carb caps trap the vapor so that you can consume it when you’re ready.

Now that you get the idea of how each dab nail type works, you can experiment with the different varieties that seem best for you. Dabbing is such a new experience for many that your knowledge might go toward helping others too. The most important things to keep in mind when dabbing are to never directly touch the end of a nail after it’s been heated, never touch the oil and of course be careful when heating your nail with the torch. Beyond that, safely enjoy the weird and wonderful world of dabbing armed with knowledge!


What is Reclaim? And Why Should it Be Part of Your Dabbing Experience?


What is reclaim? It’s best to start at the beginning. Almost every consistent smoker has had a day when, for whatever reason, we simply run out of weed and can’t get anymore. On these days, the bottom of the barrel comes to light. After smoking weed from a pipe or bong for a while, resin builds up. It’s in one of these utterly desperate moments that we may decide to start scraping the resin out of the pipe or bong so that we can smoke it and have a high that doesn’t exactly taste good but still does the job. Aside from that haunting flavor, the resin from flower does the job in a crunch but, at the end of the day, it has a way lower THC content and it’s definitely not healthy. It’s mostly made up of tar which is really not the ideal thing to smoke.

Researching the Composition of Reclaim


It may not be much to look at but you still don’t want to waste the reclaim from your dabs.

With dabs though, rather than consuming flower, we are consuming oils which means that the residual material doesn’t contain tar. This brings us back to the original question: What is reclaim? As you can probably already guess, reclaim is the residual substance leftover from dabbing. Over time, you usually start to see a buildup of oily globs sitting in the water of your rig. This residual matter is known as reclaim and the oily substance can be collected over time and re-smoked. It’s a substance that has been tested for cannabinoids and studies conducted by Scott Churchill, the Director of Methodology at MCR Labs, found that reclaim did in fact contain all 5 cannabinoids that are present in marijuana and that each of these cannabinoids was active. It was especially high in CBN, which is a mild psychoactive compound found in marijuana that produces a sense of heaviness and drowsiness.

Are You Collecting Your Reclaim?

The best, highest quality reclaim oil tested by Churchill was the kind that collected in the rigs and dropdown. You can collect that oil over time and create your own batch of reclaim for those rainy days when things get desperate. Just make sure you are collecting the orange, brown residue and that you are storing it in the best possible way. A silicon puck is recommended for this. Dabbing the reclaim is so close to being as good as dabbing concentrate that not collecting it for future use is actually a major waste of a perfectly good resource.

What is Reclaim Like When Eaten?

Dabbing isn’t the only way to consume the reclaim either. You can also eat it although if you choose to consume it as food, be very moderate with the dose. Likewise you can choose to add it to hot chocolate, alcoholic cocktails, spread it on toast or add it to any other recipe so long as, once again, you consume it with great care and moderation. Start with a tiny amount. Test your product and build up slowly if necessary. You can also use the reclaim to make a pill or tincture or even use it as an oil and rub it on your skin. You can even spread a little on a pre-rolled cigarette. There are dozens of ways to consume the reclaim and of course dabbing is most definitely one of them.

The Healthiness of Ingesting Reclaim


There are a variety of ways to ingest reclaim from your extracts.

So we’ve discussed the nature of reclaim. Now we need to know what is reclaim consumption like as far as our health is concerned. Is it perfectly healthy to ingest this leftover substance? The truth is, this is really dependent on whether your dabs were of a high quality to begin with. Some concentrates are made using BHO which means they are filled with butane gas. As you can probably imagine, the leftovers from these kinds of dabs are not going to be the greatest quality. The best kind of dabs, in particular for the best quality reclaim, are the C2O kind and solventless dabs. These will give you the healthiest, purest reclaim and, of course, when you’re dabbing you want the best quality. Therefore, concentrates of this variety are a better pick anyway.

The Best Way to Collect Your Reclaim

So now that we know what reclaim is and what kind of dabs are the best kind for creating it, it’s time to discover the best way of collecting your material. The oily goo in the rig needs to get out somehow and be separated from the water and scraped off the sides of your rig. So what’s the best way to do this? There are a couple of techniques you can try but alcohol tends to offer the easiest option. The first thing to do is get a high proof alcohol, like Everclear. Regular liquors won’t be strong enough so be sure to use the high proof variety. Pour the alcohol into the rig and allow it to sit for at least 10 minutes. If you have a lot of buildup, let it sit for a longer period. Now cover all the open holes and shake the alcohol through your rig. Keep shaking until you’ve managed to get all the residue off the rig and into the alcohol. Now pour this solution into a glass dish or into a Pyrex container and cover it with aluminum foil. Allow the mixture to sit for a couple of days until the alcohol has completely evaporated and then scrape up the remains and store them in a safe container.

As you can see, there’s a goldmine being left in your rig, usable in a dozen different ways, including dabbing. Just be sure to use the highest quality solventless dabs and then collect the goods. Be aware that it won’t be the greatest flavor but it also won’t be utterly terrible. Also the quality of the high will be slightly different due to the reclaim being higher in CBN, which will most likely make you a little more sleepy. Having said that, reclaim still contains THC, the other uplifting psychoactive ingredient in marijuana as well as all the other compounds that are generally found in marijuana so it will still give you a great high. The best idea is start collecting your reclaim and explore the variety of ways you can make this orange-ish brown sticky goo work for you.
