How is the concentrate made?

Concentrates are produced by extracting active compounds from the cannabis plant.

The extraction methods mainly include solvent extraction and solvent-free extraction.

Solvent extraction refers to the dissolution of cannabis plants using chemical solvents such as butane, alcohol, or carbon dioxide to produce potent cannabis oil.

Solvent-free extraction refers to the separation or melting of cannabinoids from the cannabis plant using no chemical solvents but various grinding and stirring methods and the use of hot-pressing machines.

Common types of cannabis plant extracts include:






*living resin


Common types of cannabis concentrates include:



*bubble hash


Worth mentioning: Extracts are concentrates, but not all concentrates are extracts.

How is the concentrate stored?

Storing concentrates is like storing medicines, in a cool, dry place. Avoid light, high temperature, and humidity.

You can use small glass jars to store your concentrate, safely and cleanly. Different flavored concentrates are packaged in different jars to avoid cross-flavor.

What is the best temperature for dabbing?

The best temperature for dabbing is between 450°F and 650°F.

Torch-working mode

Let’s break down some of the details of different temperature levels.

32°F – 310°F (0°C – 154°C): Usually too low to really evaporate the concentrate, these temperatures don’t create much cloud and vapor with very little impact or flavor.

315°F – 450°F (157°C – 232°C): Ideal for low-temperature application, this temperature range vaporizes the terpene profiles without burning them, resulting in the best flavor originally expected from the extraction process.

450°F – 600°F (232°C – 315°C): At this medium temperature setting, you will experience a lower flavor profile but may produce higher cloudiness.

600°F – 900°F (315°C – 482°C): Users who dab in this range will see their concentrate burn quickly and create a thick cloud of smoke as it evaporates. At these temperatures, many unique flavors are lost as the terpenes are burned off more.

900°F+ (482°C+): We don’t recommend using any temperatures in this range – not only do they typically sting and burn, but they can actually reach unsafe levels as carcinogens and toxins are released The degree of vapor form at these temperatures.

Heating and cooling times for dabbing.

The heating and cooling time of the dab pen depends on the coil you are using.

Generally speaking, the heating time of using a quartz atomizing core or ceramic atomizing core is 10s-20s.

Having trouble cleaning my dab pen?

Clean the dab pen with cotton swabs and alcohol.

It is recommended to clean it after every use, or every 1-2 weeks. This will avoid the accumulation of a lot of residues after multiple dabs that will affect the taste of your dabs.

Why does my chamber coil look dirty?

Because the residue of cannabis concentrate builds up without cleaning up after multiple dabs.

The wick is the part that comes into direct contact with the cannabis concentrate, and some substances remain after the cannabis evaporates. So you can use a cotton swab to wipe after each use.
