What are CBD Dabs? A beginners guide!

CBD Dabs or “concentrates” are becoming increasingly popular as a way to consume CBD over tinctures and oils. But what exactly are they? In this article, we’ll take a look at CBD dabs and explain everything you need to know about them!

CBD Dabs are concentrated forms of CBD that can be vaporised and inhaled. They are typically made by extracting CBD from cannabis plants and then freezing and filtering it to remove any unwanted impurities. This results in a highly concentrated form of CBD that can offer many potential benefits.

If you’re interested in trying CBD dabs, it’s essential to know how to use them correctly. In this article, we’ll give you a step-by-step guide on how to use CBD dabs, how they are made, and some of the best devices to use for them.

How are legal CBD Dab concentrates made?

CBD Dabs are made by extracting CBD from resin-rich flower material. The extraction process involves a solvent such as ethanol, which is combined with the cannabis flower material in a closed chamber, the solvent dissolves the cannabinoids, and the canna/ethanol solution is then frozen and filtered. After this filtration process, the ethanol is removed using vacuum distillation to concentrate the cannabinoids. Since the UK has a zero-tolerance policy for THC in CBD products, the extract has to go through a further distillation and chromatography process to reduce THC to trace levels. The final step for the team at High Kind is to reintroduce cannabis terpene essential oil for maximum flavour and entourage effects.

CBD Dabs come in different forms, including:

  1. Crystal Isolate
  2. Full-Spectrum Crumble
  3. Pull N Snap Shatter
  4. Diamonds and Sauce

The main difference between all these different forms of concentrates is the consistency and terpene content. For example, CBD Crumble has a waxy texture that falls apart easily and has a very high terpene content of around 8%. This is very different to our Pull N Snap shatter which has a lower 4% terpene content and a super sticky tree sap consistency.

How does a CBD Dab make you feel?

When dabbed, the CBD quickly enters the bloodstream and produces feelings of relaxation and relief. Unlike THC, CBD is non-psychoactive, meaning it will not produce any mind-altering effects. This makes CBD Dabs a great choice for those who want to enjoy the benefits and flavours of cannabis while still being able to work, drive and perform their usual daily activities just fine.

How can I take them?

The easiest way for a total beginner to start consuming CBD Dabs is using a dab pen or “rig” from a reputable company such as Puffco, Ispire, Storz and Bickel, Pax or Linx Vapor. These electronically controlled devices are extremely easy and fun to use. Simply open the top of the pen or device to reveal the extract chamber. At the bottom of the chamber, there will be a heating element (coil) where you would place a small rice grain-sized piece of CBD concentrate. Place the top back on, press and hold the power button and the coil inside will heat up, vaporise the terpy CBD and you simply inhale the goodness!

Are you ready to try dabbing?

CBD Dabs will offer you the most potent CBD experience available so remember to take it slow, piece by piece and enjoy your adventure into the amazing scents, flavours and medicinal properties that dabbing CBD Concentrates can provide!
