Dabbing - Smoking extracts and oil
Started as a trend in the USA, it is now also practised in Europe - dabbing. While dabbing or vaping, also known as oil smoking, substances are inhaled in a highly concentrated form with the help of special bowls - so-called domes or bangers. This makes it very popular, especially with customers who take extracts with increased active ingredient content for medicinal purposes, such as hash oil or wax.
A bong suitable for dabbing is called an oil bong, dab rig or oil rig. It has a male cut and is smaller than an ordinary bong for herbs. To use it effectively, accessories are needed, such as dabbers to drip the concentrates onto the bowls, steel or glass nails on which to place the concentrate and Bunsen burners or jet flame lighters.
The special thing about dabbing is that the smokable concentrates are not burnt but vaporised. One of the best-known dabbing concentrates is BHO: "Butane Hash Oil" or simply Wax. It is extracted from the respective plants using butane, dimethyl ether or another solvent. This makes BHO particularly pure and unadulterated - which makes for an intense smoking experience.
