What Can You Put Into The Dab Pen?

With the legalization of marijuana, the population of dab pen users also began to expand. Dab pen offers a more portable way to experience concentrates. So, what can you put into the dab pen?

Different dab pens are compatible with different materials, make sure your dab pen is suitable for this type of material before adding it. 

Because some materials may cause damage to the dab pen or bring a bad dabbing experience after adding.

What materials can be added to the dab pen?

The concentrate is generally added to the dab pen. Both dab pens and vaporizers create vapor by heating the concentrate at a specific temperature.

We generally do not recommend adding oil and dry Herbs to the dab pen. The fluidity of the oil is strong and easy to leak, so it is generally loaded into the vape pen or poured into the disposable vape pen in advance for the user to use.

Dried herbs also have specialized dried herb grinding and vaporizer equipment.

What concentrates is the dab pen compatible with?

Wax, live resin, badder, budder, shatter, and rosin are all forms of cannabis that can be extracted from a dab pen. The dab pen uses a heated atomizing core(quartz core or ceramic core) to heat the concentrate into vapor for inhalation.

Different concentrates have different viscosities, so the temperature used will vary.


Also known as cannabis concentrate, it is essentially a concentrated cannabis oil. It is usually an opaque amber color with an almost clay-type texture in appearance. You will usually find the best quality waxes between 60%-80% THC. They offer one of the most powerful concentrated experiences on the market and become increasingly popular with consumers.

Most dab pens on the market can add wax, put the wax into the chamber of the dab pen, heat it with a ceramic/quartz atomizer, and enjoy.

Living resin

Among the many different types of cannabis concentrates or extracts, the living resin is relatively new to the cannabis world.

live resin

It has become popular among consumers and producers -It retains the flavor and aroma of the live plant better than other hemp extracts and is cheaper and easier to manufacture.

Living resins typically have a more complex terpene profile and can provide a more complex experience.

Live resin is different from other types of cannabis concentrates because it is made from fresh frozen cannabis. The plants are frozen immediately after being cut at harvest.

By freezing the plant immediately after harvest, the trichomes are preserved and the cannabis plant retains its valuable terpene profile, original flavor, and aroma throughout the extraction process and in the final product.



Badder is a cannabis concentrate that looks like cake batter or thick frosting. Concentrates often have this distinct “golden” color, which ranges in shades from light gold to dark gold.

When it comes to using the badder with your dab pen, you just use the dab tool to put a small amount of the badder into the heating chamber. Let your dab pen heat up to your desired temperature, and then you can start enjoying it.



Budder looks and feels a lot like butter, is a softer concentrate that spreads easily, like softened edible butter.

Budder can turn solid and change color if stored incorrectly, be sure to store it in an airtight container away from light to avoid this problem.

What is the difference between budder and badder?

Budder and badder are essentially descriptions of concentrated consistency, but badder will be stickier and thicker than budder.

This means that both work with the dab pen in the same way. In addition to your dab pen, all you need is a dab tool to load the chamber and you’re ready to go.


In recent years, shatter has become better known as butane hash oil or BHO.


It is usually golden, translucent, and looks like a finished piece of toffee or maple syrup.

It’s called BHO because it utilizes a liquid gas called butane to remove terpenes and cannabinoids from the cannabis plant matter

There are a few things to keep in mind about using shatter with a dab pen.

The concentrate needs to reach a certain temperature to produce the desired effect and taste.

So, if you plan to use shatter with your dab pen, make sure it’s on the highest temperature setting, otherwise, these may suffer.

What is the difference between shatter and wax?

Apart from the appearance, there is not much difference. However, there are some subtle differences:

  • Shatter more complex production
  • Shatter lasts longer and is more stable
  • Waxes are generally easier to manage, weigh and use due to their consistency.


Rosin is a cannabis extract made using heat and pressure. Put the cannabis plant material in a press with a heating pad and compress it to squeeze out the hot oil.


Rosin is solvent-free—It is extracted by heat and pressure without any chemicals. Both resin and rosin are made from dried hemp material.

The process of making rosin is usually more laborious and costly, therefore rosin tends to be more expensive than resin. Because rosins are solvent-free, they are considered cleaner.

Rosin, like other concentrates, is applied in a dab rig, e-rig, or dab pen, usually at a low temperature.

Rosin doesn’t require as much heat as other dabs, and low temperatures will maintain its terpene profile and flavor.
