The process of smoking cannabis concentrates like butane harsh oil, budder, wax or shatter by placing a ‘dab’ of cannabis concentrate onto a heated surface known as a nail. The super-high concentrates are made by extracting THC (a strong psychoactive chemical compound) through a process that uses hydrocarbons as the solvent. Dabbing provides a different and more powerful high than smoking buds or flowers thus one should know their limits so as not to overdo it.
