How Can You Consume Concentrates

While our complete guide to cannabis concentrates covers everything you need to know, including how to make the wax, here’s what you need to know about consuming concentrates.

Dab Rig

The most common method of consuming marijuana concentrate is to use what’s called a “dab rig.” Dab rigs are a lot like glass pipes, but they work a little differently. Instead of using a lighter to heat the flower while inhaling, you need to heat a nail – also called a “banger” – that you can then use to heat and inhale your concentrate.

In order to use a dab rig, you’ll need a torch. Butane torches are the best way to go when it comes to using a dab rig. All you have to do is use your butane torch to heat up the nail until it’s red hot. 


If you don’t want to use a torch, you can get a dab rig with an e-nail, a nail that heats up electronically. While e-nails aren’t a part of marijuana basics, they’re pretty easy to use. Most e-nails hook up to a box that allows you to control the temperature, and that box plugs into the wall. All you have to do is set the temperature and wait until your e-nail has heated up.

Vaping Concentrates

Vaping is a popular way to consume marijuana for people who want a simpler way to consume concentrates. Instead of heating concentrates to their smoke point, a vaporizer simply heats concentrates until the THC burns and releases its vapors. 

If you decide to vaporize concentrates, you can choose between reusable and disposable. A reusable vaporizer pen means you will need to purchase a pre-filled cartridge that is screwed onto the vaporizer battery.
