There is a debate amongst the cannabis community as to when “dabbing” surfaced on the marijuana scene, as people have been vaporizing various forms of cannabinoids for more than half a century. Regardless, dabbing, became popular sometime in the late 2000’s and has taken the industry by storm.
So what is dabbing? Is it just a stoner fad? How do you take a dab? What products do you use to take a dab? Why do people choose to do it? These are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive in regards to dabbing CBDistillery™ products that we have taken the time to answer below.

What is CBD dabbing?

Dabbing is defined as the consumption method associated with the flash vaporization of cannabis concentrates (in our case, cannabidiol), once applied to a hot surface and inhaled. Concentrates, like our 99% pure CBD is more potent than other flowers, so a little bit goes a long way and is known to be one of the best ways to get immediate and effective relief. CBD Isolate also contains less plant material, so you are inhaling more cannabidiol and less combusted resin.

How do you ‘take a dab?’

1. Turn on your torch and aim at the nail

Most of the time it’s ready when the nail turns red-hot.

2. Once hot, turn off the torch, place the cap over the nail

Give it some time to cool off a little, depending on the nail it can take 10-60 seconds.

3. Take your dabber, apply the dab on the nail, inhale (slowly)

Most people rotate the dabber on the inside of the nail so all sides of the oil can be used.

4. Breathe out

You’ve taken a CBD dab, congrats!

How to Use CBD from CBDistillery

Our Isolate is one of our most popular products! We have a few different options for our Isolate, they are all the same base product – just in different forms. We recommend our Isolate CBDab Powder and Slab for dabbing and vaping and our CBDelicious Formulation Powder for cooking, making your own CBD products, or mixing into a smoothie. We understand that not everyone is interested in dabbing and wanted to create a version of our most popular product for those who are looking to use it in ways more suitable to their needs!

Our Tinctures come in at a close second for most popular! They can be taken sublingually (under the tongue) or mixed into juice or a smoothie. Please note that we DO NOT recommend vaping these as they are not formulated to be inhaled. If you are interested in Vape Products, they are right below 🙂 We carry a variety of potencies: 250mg500mg1000mg2500mg and 5000mg. They are made with coconut MCT oil (Carrying Oil) and a full spectrum Extracted Hemp Oil. For more info on the difference between each Tincture, see our FAQ “How Much CBD is in Each Tincture”. If you are looking for a good starting point, our 1000mg is our best seller. If you are looking for the best bang for your buck, we recommend our 2500mg.

We also have a Pet Tincture for our four-legged friends. What makes this Tincture different from our Human Tinctures is that we use organic cold pressed hemp seed oil as a carrier oil instead of the MCT coconut oil. We chose to use hemp seed oil for our Pet Tincture because MCT oil is known to be hard on some animal’s digestion. **Please note that both our Human and Pet Tinctures can be taken by both humans and pets! Please email us for more info**

And now to our Vape Products – these are a newer offering and we are more than excited about them! We have our disposable Vape Pens (these come with their own battery) these are great for on-the-go CBD! We also offer our Vape Carts that are compatible with 510 thread batteries. You will need a external 510 thread compatible battery to use our Vape Carts. You can find the 510 Vape battery we offer right HERE. We are working on a Vape Juice as well, so please keep an eye out on our email newsletter for announcements and updates!

If you are wanting something less intense that you can still take orally, we highly recommend our Capsules. We also offer Soft Gels in a few different varieties – Full Spectrum and Isolate. All of our Capsules come in 25mg or 30mg potencies.

We have 2 Topicals, our CBDol Salve, which is more of a muscle rub, and our CBDefine Skin Care Cream, which is more of a face cream. Both contain 500mg of CBD in a 1oz container.

Our 80% Broad Spectrum Wax is a combo of CBD, natural terpenes, CBD and CBG. We recommend dabbing this one.

Some of our other dabbing favorites are our Terpsolates. These are 99% Pure Isolated CBD infused with terpenes 🙂 Each Terpsolate is named after the terpene strain and packed full of flavor and delicious smell.

Our Suppositories are for rectal use or as vaginal capsule. They should be stored in refrigerator (at 35 – 46 degrees Fahrenheit).

Our Colorado hemp derived Terpenes are natural, solvent free, and extracted using a CO2 method. Terpenes aid in the Entourage Effect as well as enhancing the flavor profile of the compound you are dabbing.

If you just can’t decide (we don’t blame you!) we have Discount Packs that combine our products, perfect for trying them out and finding your favorite.
