The first time I took a dab… wow… seems like quite a long time ago. Probably around 2011, my homeboy from work at the time told me to come blaze before work, naturally, I said “Hell yea!” Little did I know the doorways that were about to be opened into the fantastical world of hash oil dabbing.
I vaguely remember my buddy’s rig at the time, probably your run of the mill bong with a titanium nail equipped, perfect for hot dabs with no flavor and all that punch that goes with smoking hash oil. Before you go to judge me remember it was literally my first time dabbing and the year was 2011, so yeah, cut me some slack.
Anyways, I was on my way to work, stopped by my dude’s place, took my dab, left shortly after. BOY-O, did I get the most baked I’ve ever been in my entire life!
I continued to voyage my bicycle to work at the local steakhouse where I worked as a line cook at the time. When I arrived, needless to say, my manager saw right through my Visine lacking eyes, told me I wasn’t allowed to use any sharp knives for the day, and banished me to the dish pit, I abided.
Fast forward eight years and I’m doing a demonstration on how to do a cold-start dab for my legal weed shop’s online blog. God bless America, and especially our beautiful Pacific Northwest.
“What is a cold-start dab?”, you may ask? I’ll give you a quick description, as well as a video in which I will demonstrate the speedy cold-start dab.
A cold-start dab is achieved by simply scooping up the desired amount of hash oil and placing it into a non-heated quartz banger, attached to whatever rig you may have. I personally have never attempted a cold-start dab on any other type of rig besides your standard quartz banger setup. You proceed to cover the banger with your carb-cap, prepare yourself for your dab as you heat up the banger for 10-15 seconds (depending on the thickness of your banger).
You then use your carb-cap to move the oil around your banger as you hit that shit! Way to go dudes and dude-ettes! You have just completed your very first convenient and tasty, cold-start dab.
Here is my quick video demonstration, enjoy!
