Definition - What does Reclaim mean?

Reclaim refers to the residual substance from a smoked concentrate that collects in a dab rig. Since oil and water do not mix, the reclaim often collects in the water as globs of oil concentrate. Reclaim also coats the interior surfaces of the dab rig as an oily residue. It can be collected and re-smoked or consumed as an edible instead of being discarded.

MaximumYield explains Reclaim

Reclaims are perfectly safe to use if the initial cannabis concentrate that you used to dab was high quality. It should be noted that butane hash oil (BHO) reclaim may contain butane residue, and that olventless and CO2 dabs create the cleanest reclaim.

Reclaim continues to contain active cannabinoids that the body can utilize when the user reuses the reclaim. Research has indicated that reclaim contains all five main cannabinoids plus high levels of cannabinol (CBD).

Reclaim can be removed from the dab rig by adding a high-quality alcohol to the rig. First, the user shakes the rig so the alcohol covers the entire walls of the rig to remove any and all built up reclaim. Then, the user allows the alcohol to sit inside the dab rig for a few hours. Next, the alcohol is poured into a glass dish. Cover the dish, wait a few days to allow the alcohol to evaporate, and then the reclaim will remain in the dish.
