Taking dabs vs. smoking a joint is kind of like taking a shot vs. drinking a beer. It is generally 1-3 hits out of a dab rig instead of passing a joint around for minutes. The effect comes on a lot faster, is more intense than smoking flower, but does not last as long.
As such, dabs are not for everyone. While connoisseurs sometimes use dabbing as their exclusive form of consuming THC, the average cannabis consumer will benefit just as well from taking a couple of hits of a joint or bong.
To get the best experience out of your dabs, it is important to keep these tips in mind!
