Dabs Versus Bongs: What’s the Difference?
Whether you’re doing a dab or a bong, you can’t go wrong. Here’s a brief overview of both methods of smoking.
There are many types of cannabis extractions/concentrates which one can use a dab rig for. These include Shatter, budder/badder, rosin, etc.
Most people have their own preferences for which concentrate works best for them. Shatter can have different consistencies. Sometimes it’s stretchy lack taffy, while other times it’s more brittle and easier to dose correctly. Buddar and badder have creamy consistencies and are also easy to dose.
One of the best types of concentrates is live resin. This process happens by freezing live cannabis plants and extracting the oil(cannabinoids and terpenes). The amount of terpenes and cannabinoids are some of the highest out of any extraction process. This makes it one of the most flavorful and clean extractions one can consume.
Dab hits feel like a different kind of high than bongs. Ingesting the cannabinoids and terpenes without the plant matter can have a cleaner effect. Also a fruitier taste. Dabs can also really make you cough hard. Some say it’s harsher on your lung than flower. But as you’re not taking dabs everyday your lungs will be fine.
Bongs have been around longer than dabs. It’s a much more simple procedure than having a dab rig with your titanium nail and torch.
All one has to do is just pack the flower in your bowl and place it in the bong and you’re good to go.
Some tips everyone should follow while using bongs is to make sure you’re cleaning it out on a regular basis. Over time the resin builds up on the bong and makes the smoke very harsh. In addition if you go a really long time without cleaning a bong you might find mold on there which is very bad. Anytime someone offers you a bong hit take a long at the bong and see if it looks like it has been maintained. If not, don’t take a chance for your health. You don’t want to smoke any mold.
One way to enhance your bong experience is to use hempwick instead of a lighter. This is very handy stuff. Some people might laugh at you and call you a hippy, but don’t bother worrying about that. Because the taste of the bowl you smoke will be much better without the butane crap.
In addition, you can also smoke hash and kief out of a bong also. It’s also possible to add shatter or buddar on top of your flower. But you’ll get your moneys worth more using a dab ring than going this route.
Dabs and Bongs are both awesome. They both have their advantages along with ideal time and place.
