Posted by Affiliate Namaste on

CBD is incredibly popular these days, and this is not only due to CBD’s benefits for the body, but also because there are so many ways people can enjoy it. CBD capsules and tablets, CBD drops, CBD balms, and CBD massage oil are only a few consumption methods. 

Recently, however, people have begun dabbing CBD, and it has been all the rage within the CBD community. So why is dabbing CBD so popular, how exactly can one dab CBD safely, and is it a good way to take CBD?

Most definitely! Dabbing CBD has become one of the most popular ways of taking CBD because it is easy for CBD beginners and veterans alike. Unlike taking CBD paste or measuring out doses of CBD oil everyday, dabbing CBD can be done in a matter of seconds, and it is practically mess-free. 

In addition to being a quick way to take the cannabinoid, it is also very efficient. This is because CBD dabs (a.k.a. CBD wax, CBD shatter, and CBD crystals) are very potent (99% pure CBD) so when dabbing CBD, the phrase “a little dab will do” is something to keep in mind. 

CBD wax’s purity allows consumers to take just a little bit at a time, and still get all the CBD they need for the day. Therefore, dabbing CBD is easy to do, since you can take it once a day and reach your CBD dosage, and it also makes it easy on your wallet, since you only need a small bit at a time. 

How Can You Dab CBD?

Dabbing CBD is simple. All you need it the CBD crystals (CBD dabs), and a dab rig or a concentrates-friendly vaporizer. Once you have these, all you need to do is follow the instructions for your device. 

The most common way of dabbing CBD is with a concentrates-friendly vaporizer. All you need to do is load you concentrates into the device, set the temperature, and vape away. It really is just that simple, and that’s why newbies and pros alike can dab CBD without a problem. 

Dabbing with an e-rig is also very easy, however it does require getting used to. E-rigs come complete with all the components you need to start dabbing right away and all the instructions. Some e-dab rigs can require a bit more time, such as those that come with a ‘straw’ or ‘nectar collector’. But this shouldn’t worry you, since they are still quite easy to use after a few times. 

You can also dab CBD with bongs. This is another very popular way, since there are so many types of bongs, and you can use any bong you want for dabbing CBD. A plus side to dabbing with a bong is that you will get cool vapor thanks to the water system; however a downside to this is that it is not a ‘vaporizer’, but a combustion-type rig, and this has its cons, such as uncontrollable high temperatures. 

Can Dabbing CBD Make You High?

There is a common misconception that dabbing (or taking CBD in general) can make you high, but this is not true. CBD is derived from cannabis, however CBD should not be confused with THC, which is the psychoactive component in cannabis. 

CBD works directly with the ECS (endocannabinoid system), and not with the part of the brain which causes psychoactive effects such as a ‘high’ feeling. Therefore, there is no way it can make you high according to science. 

But not all CBD is THC-free. Full-spectrum CBD products do contain traces of THC, but they cannot contain more than 0.2% THC, which is not nearly enough to make you high. All this does is put the ‘entourage effect’ in motion, and nothing else. It is important to note that CBD concentrates such as dabs, crystals, and wax are not full spectrum, since they are ‘CBD in their purest form’ at 99% CBD and nothing else. 

So the short answer to the question is no, dabbing CBD cannot make you high. Therefore, you shouldn’t be worried about feeling high or having any kind of psychoactive effects at all.

Is Dabbing CBD Legal?

Another common misconception is that dabbing CBD is illegal. But this is not true. All CBD products, including CBD concentrates such as wax, crystals, and shatter, are all legal to use, as long as they contain less than 0.2% THC. 

It is very important to always make sure that you purchase your CBD products from trusted and reputable brands. This way you ensure that the CBD you are consuming is within the legal THC limit, is made from high quality materials, and is safe to consume. 

In addition to this, if you ever have any doubts about the CBD you are consuming, you can either check already completed lab tests of the product (many trustworthy brands offer their products’ 3rd party lab test results), or send your products to a lab to be tested. That way yo can be 100% sure that what you are consuming is safe and legal.


Dabbing CBD is a great way to get your daily CBD dose because it is easy to do, very efficient, and easy on the wallet. Of course, dabbing is made much easier when you use the right equipment, so investing in a good vaporizer or e-dab rig can make your life that much easier. 

Some of the best vaporizers for dabbing are the Dr. Dabber Boost Black Edition (made specially for dabbing concentrates), the Mighty Vaporizer, the Flowermate V5.0s Pro vaporizer, and the Boundless CF vaporizer. 

You should definitely give dabbing a try! You’ll find out just how simple and easy it is, and chances are that you’ll love it just as much as we do!
