The Top Four Ways to Smoke Wax Without a Dab Rig

Smoking dab, a highly-concentrated form of butane hash oil, is one of the quickest ways to get really high. Wax can have a concentration of up to 80 percent THC – compare that to the 10 or 14 percent in joints, and you’ll get an idea of how hard dab will hit you.

Wax is mainly consumed using a dab rig, but you don’t need one to enjoy it. Here are four ways to smoke wax when you don’t have a dab rig available.

Use a Bowl

Halfway through packing your bowl, drop some dab onto the weed. Then, finish filling the bowl and enjoy.

You’ll want to make sure the wax is placed in the middle of your weed because an open flame will degrade the quality of your dab. The halfway method will light a cherry that burns the wax without destroying it. 

Roll Wax Into a Joint

Similar to using dab in a bowl, you can easily add wax to a joint. After rolling out your paper, spread out your flower like usual. Depending on the type of wax you have, you can either crumble it over your weed or roll it into a long piece you can place in the middle of the joint. 

Rolling the joint can be a bit more challenging – wax is sticky, after all. Take your time, and you’ll get an incredible high from the results.

Grab Your Vape Pen

If you’re preferred consumption method is vaping, try adding dab to your pen. To add your own wax to a vape pen, you’ll need a pen that comes with a detachable atomizer.

Once you’ve got your pen, add a small amount of wax onto a metal dabber. Disconnect your atomizer, then add the dab to the unheated coil. 

Turn on your pen’s battery chamber, then connect the atomizer. Finally, attach your mouthpiece and enjoy, making sure to inhale slowly to get the best results.

Use Your Bong Like a Dab Rig

If you own a smaller bong (under 15 inches), you can use it in place of a dab rig. Using your bong is a great DIY when you don’t have access to a dab rig.

You might need to invest in a male-jointed or universal dab nail, as most bongs are female-jointed. You’ll also want to avoid using a bong with a percolator, as these can negatively affect the flavor of your extract.

Three Essential Facts About Trichomes Every New Cannabis Smoker Should Know

Buying cannabis for the first time can be daunting. Whether you go to an in-person dispensary or order from a marijuana delivery service, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the different strains and consumption methods.

Learning the basics of marijuana and how it affects the body is a great place to start. One term you might hear about cannabis is trichomes, so we’ve broken down the three most essential facts to know about this part of the marijuana plant for your reference.

Why Trichomes Matter

If you’ve ever looked closely at a cannabis flower, you may have noticed it was covered in a layer of tiny crystals. Those crystals are trichomes: a bitter-tasting material plants produce to repel insects, animals and fungi.

Trichomes are also a part of the marijuana plant that produces terpenes and cannabinoids. Terpenes are responsible for the aroma of a cannabis strain, and cannabinoids like THC and CBD produce its psychological effects. Trichomes’ production of these two chemical compounds is what makes them so important for cannabis users.

The Different Types of Trichomes

There are three broad types of trichomes: bulbous, capitate sessile, and capitate-stalked trichomes.

Invisible to the naked eye, bulbous trichomes are are smallest of the three types. Experts aren’t sure if bulbous trichomes produce cannabinoids.

Capitate sessile trichomes are larger than bulbous trichomes. The cells at the base of these trichomes are known to produce cannabinoids and terpenes.

Capitate-stalked trichomes are the largest of the three types and are visible without a microscope. Mostly found on the surface of cannabis flowers, capitate-stalked trichomes transfer nutrients to the head of the plant through its stalk. These trichomes also produce terpenes and cannabinoids in a cannabis plant.

The Benefits of Trichomes

The cannabinoids produced by trichomes are responsible for the many touted benefits of marijuana use. 

The cannabinoids in marijuana affect your body’s endocannabinoid system, which plays a role in everything from mood regulation to physical pain. For this reason, cannabis can be an effective way to alleviate anxiety, relieve chronic pain, or enhance everyday experiences.
