So you’re looking for a health conscious way to consume cannabis, without the combustion of smoking? Maybe you desire a potent method of ingesting THC that has an immediate activation and long lasting effects? Only rivaled by edibles in potency, consuming THC in a concentrated amount will open a new world of possibilities, and a new way to space travel.
The world of dabbing can seem overwhelming at first, as if you are hearing a new language for the first time, so please, approach this new world with an open mind, and we will guide you to new highs.
Concentrate consumption dates back to ancient times in the history of Cannabis, not new but certainly revolutionized. The term dabbing itself IS relatively new, born around 2010 in reference to the amount of THC concentrate that's recommended to consume in one dose with the phrase "a dab’ll do ya". Treat your concentrate dosing like you would edibles, low and slow, you can always consume more for your desired effect no matter if you are trying to board a ship to space or elevate yourself to ever so lightly hover above the ground.
Concentrates are exactly as the name states, the most concentrated form of whichever cannabinoid (CBD, THC, CBG etc...) is being extracted from the plant material.
Concentrates are rising in popularity, and for good reason, this method of consumption is not just potent but pure, and can be seen as a more health conscious option to combustible smoking, as the process of ‘taking a dab’ is essentially inhaling a vaporized cannabinoid.
There are a variety of different consistencies of concentrates depending on the extraction method, (batter, shatter, rosin, sugar, pie crust OH MY!) try them all you may find yourself preferring a specific consistency, though after trying the ATLRx Delta 8 Shatter, you probably have found your favorite. The shatter we offer is a pure Delta 8 THC extraction so it is very potent and delightful to consume on its own OR combine with other methods.
The term shatter was mentioned, to describe the consistency of the new concentrate offered by ATLRx , what does this mean you might ask? This specific type of THC dab is typically a golden honey color and will, as the name suggests, shatter when dropped or hand broken.
The cannabinoids from the hemp plant are extracted in any variety of ways depending on the desired product consistency, usually a solvent of some sort (butane, CO2, propane etc...) is pushed through the plant material at a very pressurized rate as to separate the THC molecule from the rest of the plant. ATLRx’s newest Delta 8 concentrate is created with this method, using a CO2 extraction for a clean, quality product.
An aspect of dabbing that can feel the most daunting is learning about how to actually consume the THC, this method does require some new equipment to enhance your experience and give you the most from your concentrates. ‘Dab rigs’, nectar collectors, rolling the concentrate in a joint or topping the flower in your bowl?

Dabs have become a preferred method of consumption for a portion of cannabis consumers for its potency, the quality, and the craft nature behind most extraction companies, just like the world of beer connoisseurs, cannabis certainly has its own craft community.
