What’s the easiest way to maintain my glass clear? — Dirk T. Gere
If you’re speaking about your bongs and pipes, salt and
alcohol are the best way to go. Coarse or kosher salt might be greatest, nevertheless it isn’t
important. Seal the holes of your piece, pour in some alcohol (I just like the 90%
stuff), add some salt and shake vigorously. The alcohol acts as a solvent, the
salt acts as an abrasive, and briefly order, you have got a squeaky-clean piece.
Rinse nicely and revel in. It’s best to most likely clear your piece not less than as soon as per week
and alter your bong water each session.
For gunky dab rigs, let ’em soak in some alcohol for a number of
hours or in a single day, use a pipe cleaner to get into the nooks and crannies,
rinse nicely and dab out. Maintain your gear, and someday it is possible for you to to
give your kids classic bongs and pipes. I sit up for seeing your piece
on “Antiques Roadshow.”
Do vape pens depend as dabbing? —E. Theroar
Eh. I imply, you’re burning a concentrated cannabis product, however is it actually a dab although? It’s the identical precept — utilizing extraordinarily excessive warmth to immediately vaporize a cannabis distillate right into a vapor kind, which is then inhaled — nevertheless it appears to me that vapor cartridges are a type of watered-down model of dabs. I imply, after we assume “dabs,” we predict massive globs and torches and e-nails and rigs and arguments over the very best melting level for every specific terpene, and silicon mats and dab sweats, and backpacks stuffed with instruments and deal with packing containers stuffed with all method of waxes, oils, crystals and shatters.
Once we assume “vape,” we take into consideration discreetly sustaining our buzz within the movie show as a result of “Aquaman” is two-and-a-half hours lengthy and we wish to be hella excessive when the undersea battle takes place. So, I’m gonna say that vaping and dabbing are utterly totally different, which isn’t to say which you could’t go purchase a dab rig that appears like a vaporizer (though a few of these new moveable rigs don’t look very discreet) and dab your little coronary heart out.
What’s the craziest dab you’ve ever taken? Do you actually have to take a seat down when taking a dab? — Ben D’Yurnees
, I’m not a large dabber. I like a bit social dab
every now and then, however I wish to get pleasantly excessive, not stoned right into a dab-a-tonic
stupor. Nevertheless, there was this one time within the ’90s, earlier than “dabs” was even a
phrase, again after we used to smoke hash oil off of charcoal briquettes. When my
band was performing on the C.H.A.M.P. (Hashish Serving to Alleviate Medical
Issues) dispensary in San Francisco, somebody gave me the largest hash oil hit
I had ever had in my life. I really solely smoked half of it and I used to be in outer
Fortuitously, I’m an expert, and I used to be in a position to end
my set. I’ll admit that I had a small panic assault on the best way to my subsequent present
as a result of I believed I may be too excessive to carry out, however I ended up having one in all
the very best units in my comedy profession at that time. The primary rule of being
extraordinarily excessive is all the time: Don’t panic, it’s simply weed. The second is: Keep
In any case, there are many movies on YouTube of individuals
taking ginormous slabs of dabs on to the face. I perceive that America
loves feats of over-consumption, however smoking 7 grams of concentrated cannabis
in a single go simply strikes me as wasteful. Nevertheless, that is nonetheless a nominally free
nation, so if smoking $200 price of wax at one go is your factor, be your self,
Second half: Should you aren’t used to smoking dabs (or wax or shatter), you must most likely sit down not less than the primary few occasions. Weed is a vasodilator, that means that it’s going to decrease your blood strain. Dabs come on fast, making a fast vasodilatory impact, and increase, you’re out like a light-weight. Sitting down will aid you keep away from this downside. So will staying hydrated, not doing too many dabs in a row and never getting drunk earlier than you dab. Weed is enjoyable, however weed remains to be a drug. Use medication responsibly.
