What is a Dab?

No, not the dance move that looks like you are sneezing. In the vape pen game, dabs are highly concentrated formulations of tetrahydrocannabinol, aka “THC”. This is the active compound in the cannabis plant, known for its psychotropic effects. Some call it wax, and some call it oil, despite its solid composition. The reason being, it melts into a liquid form when heated up, just before it is vaporized. Come to think of it, dabs go through each of the three states of matter, solid, liquid and gas, but I’m no Bill Nye…

Why Dabbing is important?Edit

So glad you should ask. Using a wax vaporizer for concentrates, or “dabbing” is simply more efficient because you are only inhaling the active components of the cannabis plant.

Also it is much safer than traditional combustion methods, since the wax is being vaporized instead of burned. Wax vaporizers provide a healthier alternative to smoking, so let’s get to dabbing!

Types of Dabs PensEdit

In our book, there are really two main categories of vape pens for wax. There are either ones that try to simulate a classic dab rig, containing a coil and wick that heats up relatively fast. You then have the slow-cooking ones that usually feature a coil-free chamber, typically made of ceramic.

There are advantages to both, namely the latter will give you a more noticeable effect right away versus the former, which is a “slow-creeper”. The advantage however is that your oil will get vaporized slower and produce better flavor. Similar to using a cannabis vaporizer vs. smoking, you will get a much more mellow experience with these type of wax pens.

They say “different tokes for different folks”.

An example of a hard-hitting, coil-based wax pen would have to be the Kandypens Galaxy. The MigVapor Yabba Dabber on the other hand, is a coil-less “donut” style dab or wax pen that vaporizes concentrates slower and at slightly lower temperatures.

Each one has it’s own unique advantages that we will be discussing. Some even come with an array of coil heads that are optimized for the various viscosities of concentrates.

The thinner waxes tend do better with quartz and silica wicks, and the thicker wax/dabs seem to do well with ceramic.
