WHAT IS A DAB?
Dabs are often compared to the hard liquor of the cannabis world, and can be found in many forms. Dabs are the essential oils and waxes of the cannabis plant that are extracted and concentrated into a potent wax form. They are known for their high concentration of THC. Smoking a dab is much stronger than smoking flowers. If you are not a regular cannabis consumer with a high tolerance, we recommend using extreme caution.
If you’re considering purchasing or doing a dab, it is also important to know what is in the essential oil being offered or sold and if it is safe. Many extracts may not have been purged correctly, and may contain residual amounts of butane or other solvents. CO2 oil is often noted as the safest oil because critical extraction machines that use CO2as the only solvent extract it.
ARE THE TOPICALS GOING TO GET ME STONED?
No, topicals do not have a psychoactive affect. They are used for localized relief of inflammation, pain, or soreness. Do not confuse topicals with transdermal patches though. Patches can and will get you high, and they work similar to a nicotine patch.
