Low Temperature Dabbing Brings Out The Best Flavor
When it comes to taking dabs, many of the most experienced dabbers are transitioning over to cold-start dabs. Low-temp dabs bring out the best flavor for concentrates and has become the tradition for many dabbers across the world.
What is a cold-start dab? Scoop up a healthy size dab, place it in your banger or bowl, and heat up the banger until the concentrate starts bubbling and sizzling. Once you cap the banger or bowl, inhale the vapor and enjoy a cold-start dab!
Lower temp dabbing is the favored style by oil-heads and cannasseurs alike. If you want to capture the highest level of terpenes and enjoy the best overall flavor in each succulent smoke sesh, low temp is the only temp to go with.
Today we’re excited to share with you a set of low temp dabbing instructions for those looking for the best possible experience. Grab your best banger, dab tool, rig, torch, and carb cap and let’s get to it.
Before we get started, there is a margin for human error, as well as a level of trial-and-error you’ll go through with every single type of oil you use. There is no one perfect temperature for every dab and each rig and device you use does effect the overall experience. Variations of cannabis oil can include any kind of solvent (rosin, distillate, shatter) as well as solventless products too.
The typical temperature that you’re looking for when dabbing at a low-temp is around 350-550 degrees Fahrenheit. This obviously depends on the device you choose to use but at this temperature the cannabinoids and terpenes are able to fully melt and produce a full-spectrum effect that generally captures the natural flavor of the strain. The low temp experience also usually reduces the likelihood of a harsher hit.
Start by heating up your quartz banger or titanium nail and wait until you see it glow a reddish orange. The color will indicate that temp is around 800 degrees Fahrenheit. Once it is heated, the wait time from that moment is around :45-1:30 minute. There are other types of nails such as titanium, glass, and ceramic, but this article is focusing on heating up quartz bangers specifically. Follow your dab up with a clean Q-tip to ensure your banger is clean for the next hit. Below we’ve made an easy 10-step way to take a clean, powerful, and flavorful low-temp dab nearly every time.
