So many people think that ‘dabs’ and ‘concentrates’ are forms of marijuana only. But this is not true, any legal substance can be concentrated and dabbed. In this article I am only referring to legal smoking substances that were concentrated and dabbed on an oil rig.
So when I first tried dabs I used an oil rig, it was made from glass and was pretty big. Make sure you check local laws. Not quite as large as a bong but much bigger than a bubbler. The glass oil rig looked amazing and I could not wait to try it out, so much so I got a little carried away with my first dab. Whenever you come across this substance it is important to remember that it is an heavily concentrated form so a little bit will be extremely powerful. Because my glass oil rig looked so amazing I wanted to make sure I filled it with smoke and took a good hit; this was my first school boy error. I should of took my time, got to know the substance I was dabbing but instead I was overwhelmed by the fun technique used to dab and I went too far.
I was immediately light headed and felt a little sick, it was around 4 minutes later that I realised I had gone too far and inhaled too much smoke from my dabbing / concentrate rig; which is never a good idea considering the damage inhaling smoke does to your body. After half an hour I began to relax and feel much better and I actually was enjoying the sensation. For some new smokers it would of been enough to make them be sick and put them off doing dabs from oil rigs for good. But luckily for me I was able to manage to overcome the rookie mistake I made and enjoy myself.
What I want to get across to people is that you should never ‘show smoke’ to impress people. If you are going to do it then smoke at your own pace, and when you come across a really nice bong or glass oil rig for oils and wax, be sure to take your time and do not get carried around like I did! If you didn’t smoke enough the first time, you can always smoke more later! It does not quite work the over way round though! But there are some great articles out there on how to sober up from marijuana that show some really effective tips that I have used myself from time to time!
