Cannabis concentrate



A dab, also known as wax, shatter, amber, honeycomb, or budder, is a highly concentrated version of butane hash oil (BHO). Dabs contain high quantities of THC. This concentrated material is made using a chemical procedure that extracts the oils from cannabis using butane oil.

Although most people enjoy marijuana by smoking joints or using vape pens, dabs work differently. It is done with a specially built glass bong known as an “oil rig.” Dabs are heated to a very high temperature and then inhaled.
