Smoking cannabis concentrates is a relatively new thing and even experienced smokers could find themselves in intimidating situation, especially when they don’t know how to smoke shatter properly. The dabbing trend continues to rise, we have to stay up-to-date with the latest methods of consumption. Dabbing has been around for a while although the technology made a huge leap in the past few years, which led to emerging many tech-tools for cannabis concentrates consumption. The reason why concentrates are so popular is that they deliver much quicker and potent effects than the traditional herb material. This fact can be petrifying, especially for novice smokers who just have started their cannabis adventure.
Old-School Method Of Smoking Concentrates
For people who are not big fans of tech-cannabis-tools, the best way to start a smoke session is using a water pipe or hookah. They are available in different versions that give you an option to use certain attachments to turn your water pipe into a professional dab gadget. You will also need a nail – the best ones are made of quartz or titanium, although a ceramic one will be just fine. The third thing you will need is bowl where your concentrate will be heated. To make everything old school, find a blow torch to heat up your concentrate. And finally, use a dab tool to apply the dab once it is heated.
The only drawback of these old school rigs is the lack of portability. They are usually desktop units and are hard to transport without the proper case. Now, let’s explain the more convenient way of smoking cannabis concentrates.
How To Smoke Shatter Using A Vaporizer?
The technology leap enabled us the healthier consumption of cannabis via vaporizing, instead of smoking. Electronic dab rigs like Kandy Pen for example, are taking the dabbing culture to the next level. The simplicity of using is unbelievable – just put your shatter into a quartz bowl, close the lid, press a button to start the heating, and wait until it heats. This straightforward and minimalistic design turned out to be the exactly what cannabis users want; a simple, quick and reliable procedure that gives a fantastic experience while staying incognito.
Once again, how do you smoke shatter with a vaporizer? First, make sure you are using vaporizer/pen that is made for wax/shatter use. Turn off the device, open the lid, pack your shatter nicely, using the dab tool (a long metal piece). Close the lid. Now, turn on the device, press the button to start heating and wait until the chamber fills in with the vapor. Once you see the signal that is full, start with inhaling. Enjoy your shatter!
Do Not Forget To Clean!
Wax, shatter, or any other cannabis concentrate produces a lot of resin inside the chamber and the bow. To avoid any possible health risks, it is advisable to clean the device after each session. Make sure you read the instructions and the manual carefully to disassemble the device, clean all its parts slowly with alcohol to removing any residue left. After you are done with the cleaning, leave the device to dry up. After it is dried up, use a cotton cloth to polish it. Assemble all the parts and plug it in to make sure everything works fine!
