Dabbing is the CBD intake method that is now trending for numerous reasons. It is one of the quickest acting methods that does not keep you waiting long to get the CBD experience after you take it.
Here is a complete guide to dabbing CBD.
How Do You Dab CBD?
In dabbing, a CBD concentrate is flash vaporized using a tool like a dab rig or wax pen. The vapors produced are then inhaled.
Why Is Dabbing CBD So Popular?
If you were to compare dabbing with common CBD intake methods like sublingual intake or CBD capsules, you will find that dabbing is superior to them in terms of bioavailability. The term “bioavailability” refers to the percentage of CBD (of a CBD product) that enters our bloodstream. CBD capsules have bioavailability within the 5-10% range, which is quite less.
When you inhale CBD using methods like dabbing or vaping, about 50% of the CBD in the product enters your bloodstream. The effects are felt within a few minutes after you take the products and they offer you quick relief.
Dab products are more potent than vape products indicating that dabbing is more effective than vaping.
