Dabs, or cannabis concentrates, gain in (controversial) popularity
One puff can be five times as strong as taking one hit off a marijuana cigarette
With new and more complex methods of extraction, new forms of cannabis use have also arrived, such as concentrates, which have made dabbing known worldwide and very appreciated by a new and young generation of consumers.
The dabs are basically concentrated doses of cannabis that are obtained by extracting the THC and other cannabinoids through the use of solvents resulting in a sticky oil. The potent effects of dabbing, and part of the controversy, result from THC reaching levels of 70% to 90%, giving it a much stronger high than any known variety. One puff can be five times as strong as taking one hit off a marijuana cigarette.
For its consumption are needed elements such as a torch to heat to high temperatures a surface where the concentrate will be placed, which is a part of a pipe specially designed for this type of use.
In addition to the power of the high, there are certain risks involving the process of the extraction of the product. Although doing it at home is possible, the recommendations say to leave this aspect to professionals and in well-conditioned places, as explosions can happen in the process.
