What Is Dabbing?

If you’re interested in learning more about dabbing and dab pens, then you’ve come to the right place! 

Cannabis concentrates are all the rage right now. The popularity surrounding the legalization of marijuana has led to a massive increase in the ways which people are enjoying cannabis. While traditional smoking methods such as rolling papers and water pipes are still very common, things like dabbing and vaping are starting to create their own niche in the cannabis industry.


What Are Cannabis Concentrates?

Cannabis concentrates are concentrated forms of cannabis. Concentrates are available as waxes, shatters, oils, crumble, and budder. Cannabis concentrates contain concentrated amounts of cannabinoids such as THC and CBD. It’s important to take it slowly when you first start dabbing or using any concentrates as they’re very potent. Start off slowly until you find a level which suits your tolerance.


What Is Dabbing?

You can dab with dab rigs, dab pens such as the Nexus Pro Vaporizer, or wax pens. Like regular vaporizers or dry herb vape pens, dab pens contain a chamber where the concentrates are heated to the point of vaporization and then inhaled. They are small which makes them ideal to carry around in a pocket or bag. Up until a few years ago, the only way to dab was with a dab rig and a blowtorch, manually heating the concentrate in a bowl like a water pipe.


How To Use A Dab Pen

Learning how to use a dab pen may seem complicated, but once you spend a few minutes you’ll be able to dab like a pro in no time! Devices such as the Nexus Pro Vaporizer have magnetic snap connections which make cleaning, loading and charging a breeze. We have some dabbing tips below to get you started:

  • Start off with small amounts of concentrates, don’t overload you dab pen.
  • Make sure that your dab pen is fully charged and switched on.
  • Select a temperature setting that suits your concentrate and dabbing style.
  • Pulse the firing button on the dab pen to prime it and then hold down the firing button while you inhale on the dab pen.
  • Clean your dab pen after each use. This will save on longer cleaning sessions later.


Dab pens have proven to be one of the most efficient and popular ways to enjoy cannabis concentrates. They’re quick to use, efficient, produce a great high, and very convenient. In a matter of moments, you’ll be dabbing like a professional!
