What are “Dabs?” To put it simply, Dabs are various forms of high grade hash, usually made with a process involving butane. Dabs is a fairly new phenomenon that has taken over the Western United States and is moving eastward at a rapid pace.

Dabbing is a new way of ingesting cannabis that involves highly concentrated preparations.

Dabs are popular because they often contain high doses of THC (70-90%) which is much more than the typical cannabis flower. They are sometimes called butane honey oil, budder, shatter or wax.

The preferred method of using Dabs is being smoked using a water pipe (bong) or vaporizer pen.
