Why are people so afraid to dab?
In the years since this new form of cannabis consumption came into vogue, many quickly wrote it off altogether. The charges against dabbing include concerns about getting too stoned (valid), trepidation about the need for a blowtorch (fair), and the common belief that dabbing is reserved for extreme potheads only.
It’s this last point – that dabbing only has something to offer the most serious cannabis consumers among us – that urgently needs to be corrected.
Instead, the beauty of dabbing lies in its purity. By heating concentrates to a certain temperature, consumers can taste the terpenes of a particular strain with remarkable clarity. The dabbing method also ensures that users only get the ‘good stuff’. Compared to the amount of non-beneficial plant material you can’t avoid smoking cannabis in flower form, the precision inherent in dabbing results in the tastiest, measured hits you could wish for.
So why isn’t dabbing more popular?
First, people are put off by the level of assembly and execution required. Dabbing requires a lot more equipment and patience than packing a bowl. For another, there is an unwavering concern around the torch component of the process, which is used to heat the concentrate in a traditional dab kit. Finally, dabbing requires some maintenance between hits, making it a bit cumbersome and time-consuming as a shared activity.
Enter the Puffco Peak. This little rig may be pricey, but the power in it is quite impressive.
Most notably, the device runs on electricity, meaning the entire process is flare-free. Instead, users can drop a little concentrate into the ceramic chamber once the atomizer is heated (old school) or preload the concentrate and then heat the device. Both methods yield satisfactory results, but the latter option also introduces a new aspect of dabbing previously unavailable: sharing.
Those who load up enough concentrate for a small group and then heat the Puffco Peak can easily move the device around, turning a once solitary venture into a group activity. The Peak’s lack of extra components and compact size also make it a breeze to take to a friend’s apartment or on a weekend road trip (the battery takes two hours to fully charge and lasts 30 minutes). dabs along).
As for the interface, this device uses smart settings that rely on a single button to cycle through four user heat settings. One of the biggest drawbacks to many high-end products is how confusing it can be to master all their bells and whistles. With the Puffco Peak, the quality is still there, but the interface is remarkably easy to use, relying on colored LED displays and vibrations to convey temperature changes, as well as something called “intelligent temperature calibration”, which automatically adjusts heating times depending on the temperature of your bowl.
Overall, the Puffco Peak is just a wildly impressive product, appealing to seasoned dabbers as well as curious consumers ready to take the plunge. Consolidating the essence of dabbing into a portable, intuitive, sleek design, Puffco has put down a dabbing glove that will be pretty hard to top. If price isn’t a deal breaker, there really isn’t anything that beats it.
Potency: As for the unit, users can cycle through the temperatures at the touch of a button. The Puffco Peak hits clean and pure, meaning the power of the concentrate you’ve chosen is exactly what you get. As always, there is no trophy for clearing the room, so don’t be afraid to stop when you’ve had enough!
Appearance: The device measures 7″ high by 2.7″ wide. The limited-edition Sunset Peak offered for review has a swirl of sunset colors on the base that gives way to a starry sky. The base fits comfortably in the hand when held by hand and is also surprisingly light.
Medical Application: For those in need of a serious infusion of THC, dabbing is one method of getting the most bang for your buck. The medicinal benefits of the Puffco Peak compared to other dab rigs is its ease of use. Those who may not be able to control a blowtorch due to arthritis or other conditions may find that the Peak’s electronic interface offers a much more viable alternative.
