Why use a dab instead of a vape cartridge?
TL;DR version: A dab rig allows you to take a bigger vape hit and uses water to filter and cool the vapor before it hits your throat.
Quick science-y primer: The whole point of a dab, vape, joint, bong, or anything in that family is to use some form of heat to turn the active ingredients in cannabis (like CBD) into a gas so that you can inhale it and bring it straight to your bloodstream via the lungs. This allows you to bypass the liver (and a thing called first-pass metabolism where any foreign substances get degraded) and greatly increase the bioavailability of said active ingredients. Thing is, there are different ways to apply that heat and they each have pros and cons.
The best analogy here is, why use a bong instead of a pre-rolled joint? A bong uses water to cool and filter the cannabis smoke so that the stuff we want to go to your lungs (CBD) makes it there but we keep out some of the unwanted byproducts of combustion (ash and other toxins) and make it easier on the throat. Also, by its design, a bong also allows you to use more flower in a single hit compared to a typical joint. There is a trade-off of convenience, though – you can’t just discreetly whip a bong out of your pocket walking down the street (not that we advocate that anyway) – so you have to be willing to post up in a secure location and spend some time on the endeavor in order to get that bigger, better-quality hit.
A dab rig is to a vape cartridge as a bong is to a joint. While it uses a heated nail to vaporize wax concentrate instead of flame on flower, the mechanisms, advantages, and disadvantages are all similar. It takes a bit more time & effort but gives you a bigger hit that’s easier on the throat. Now since this is FTP we’re talking uncut vape wax so it’s already a cleaner hit to begin with, but we’ve had enough people special-order syringes for dabs and swear by the results that we decided it was worth offering to the world at large.
So now, FTP is proud to offer ALL of our CBD vapes in dab-friendly syringes! Use your preferred rig, wax strength & flavor to your heart’s desire.
