The primary way to consume concentrates is dabbing, adding to flower, or vaporizing.
Dabbing is the act of vaporizing a concentrate using high heat. While traditionally done with a water pipe and blow torch, the introduction of e-rigs and dab pens have made this consumption method more accessible than ever.
Adding a concentrate to flower is absolutely an option, it’s recommended to begin with a layer of flower, add a dose of concentrate, then place more flower on top. The top layer prevents you from igniting the concentrate itself and potentially burning off any beneficial cannabinoids prior to inhaling, while the bottom keeps the sticky residue from clogging your bowl.
Fun fact, the oil in the vape you use is actually a concentrate, and is the most common way concentrates are consumed. Vapes allow for more controlled dosing, as each 5 second inhalation will provide roughly 3-5mg of cannabinoids.
