What Does Dabber Mean?

In cannabis culture, dabbing has become a rising trend. Dabbing is a method of consuming cannabis concentrates. To take a dab, a highly concentrated form of cannabis is heated and the vaporized oil is inhaled, giving the consumer an intense sensation of high.

A dabber refers to a handheld tool or piece of equipment used in the dabbing process. The dabber is a a long, pointy, heatproof tool used to expose a concentrate such as wax, shatter, or BHO to a hot surface on an oil rig pipe. In other words, a dabber is utensil that is used to pick up a small piece of the extract and dab it on the hot nail.

Dabbers are most often made of glass or metal (stainless steel) and specifically help the consumer take dabs safely and without making a mess. Some people might refer to someone who dabs as a 'dabber', but the term actually refers to the tool, not the person.


Maximum Yield Explains Dabber

Dabs are a type of concentrated cannabis extract that has been become very popular in the modern pop culture, overcoming smoking and vaping. While dabs are a type of cannabis extract packed with a high concentration of cannabinoids, there are many different types of dabs to choose from but the most common ones are shatter, wax and butane hash oil (also just known as BHO in short form).

The methods used to produce these different types of dabs are what gives them a unique property from one another. The reason as to why dabs are much more popular than buds nowadays is because they contain a much higher concentration of tetrahydrocannabinol (also known as just THC).

The process of dabbing involves using a device called a dab rig, which is similar to a bong. All you need is a water pipe (it can be a marijuana bog converted into a dab rig using the necessary parts), a nail (the part which is heated up with the torch to vaporize the extract, made up of either glass, ceramic, quartz, titanium, or electric), a dome (which is a handheld propane torch), a torch, and the last but not the least, a dab tool (the dabber, also called a wand).
