Butane Hash Oil better known by Dab or dabbing is a concentrated mix of cannabis that boasts THC concentration of up to 80%. Dabbing is a new way of ingesting cannabis and it is called Butane Hash Oil because butane is used to extract oils from cannabis.
Consumption of Butane Hash Oil is on the rise and can be attributed to the liberalization of cannabis use in U.S. and Canada. As this is a concentrated strain consumption should be done in small quantities.
As it is a runny liquid it is difficult to use this form of cannabis in joints or bongs. Although its popularity is increasing it is not the first concentrate o cannabis that has been used by humans. Resinous traces of cannabis have been found in Arab countries that dates back to 900 A.D.
