Here’s How To Smoke Hash Oil Every Way Imagineable

Here’s how to smoke hash oil no matter how you like to enjoy your concentrates.

Hash oil is an increasingly popular way to consume cannabis. You may know it under any number of other names, including shatter, dabs, wax, or BHO. Many cannabis enthusiasts prefer to consume hash oil because it can be vaporized in a dab rig, which feels very similar to smoking, but is easier on the lungs.

It also preserves the flavor of the cannabis’ terpenes, and allows cannabis enthusiasts to consume MORE concentrated and isolated cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and THCA.

If you’re consuming hash oil out of a dab rig, to say you’re “smoking” is a bit of a misnomer. You may still hear many people say “smoking dabs” rather than “vaporizing dabs,” simply because it’s easier to say.

But if you insist on smoking hash oil, there are definitely ways to do so.

Smoking hash oil is comically easy. The easiest way is to put hash oil in a joint. Follow these simple steps to have a good time.

1. Ground up enough cannabis to roll a normal sized joint—the kind you would smoke on any other day.

2. Roll a filter for your hash joint using filter tips. If you don’t have those, you can use a business card or something of a similar material.

3. Put the filter in the end of your rolling paper. Sprinkle half of the ground cannabis in your rolling paper.

4. Put a few drops of hash oil on the cannabis in the rolling paper.

5. Sprinkle the remaining ground cannabis over the hash oil in the rolling paper.

6. Finish rolling the joint, light, and smoke.

You can also smoke hash oil in a bong. This is a similar concept to smoking hash oil in a joint. Follow these simple steps.

1. Ground up enough cannabis to pack a bowl that’s slightly smaller than average for you. The reason for this is that hash oil is potent, so it’s best to be careful with your dosing. It’s super important that you have a quality grinder. Click here to see our selection of the best weed grinders on the market.

2. Pack your bowl piece with the ground up cannabis.

3. Put a small drop of hash oil on top of the cannabis in the bowl, right where it meets the size of the bowl piece.

4. Put your mouth to the bong and inhale extremely slowly while hovering your lighter just above the drop of hash oil. The fire shouldn’t touch the hash oil, but it should get extremely close. If you’re doing it right, you’ll see the oil start to bubble and you’ll start to pull vapour through the bong. Do this for as long as you can, and then when you’re ready, allow the flame to gently touch the hash oil, igniting the oil and the cannabis in the bowl piece. Finish smoking the bong as you would with any other bowl of cannabis.

Here are a few bongs you can use to smoke hash oil. Here’s our full list of the best bongs if you want more.

Again, “smoking” hash oil is a misnomer when consumed in a dab rig because you’re not actually smoking the hash oil. You’re vaporizing it.

This is the main benefit of using a dab rig to consume hash oil. Vaporizing your oil will give you a smoother, more flavourful taste.

Vaporizing, compared to smoking, allows you to more fully experience the hash oil’s components like terpenes and cannabinoids.

What You’ll Need

A dab rig. These look similar to bongs, but are much smaller, and instead of a bowl piece are used with “quartz bangers,” also called “nails”

A dome. This is the glass piece that you will use to cover the nail after you vaporize the hash oil in order to trap the vapor in the nail before it’s inhaled.

A dabber. This is the small, stick-like piece that you use to apply the hash oil to the nail. They’re usually made out of metal, glass, or ceramic.

A torch. These are the small, flame-thrower-like devices that are used to heat up the nail.

What To Do

What to do to smoke hash oil

1. Put your nail in the dab rig.

2. Collect a tiny drop of hash oil on the end of your dabber. If you’re new to dabbing, the amount you use should be extremely small—about 1mm squared. Hash oil is potent, and should be handled with caution. Remember, you can always consume more, but can never un-consume a dab.

3. Carefully turn on your torch so the flame shoots out the end. Directly torch the nail until you see it turning red hot.

4. Turn off the torch and put it aside (be careful because the end will still be very hot). Put the dome over the nail. Allow the nail to cool for about 45 seconds if it’s made of quartz, and 10 seconds if it’s made of titanium. Dabbing at a low temperature will give you a more flavourful hit, and allow you to more fully enjoy the effects of the terpenes and cannabinoids.

5. Take your dabber with the hash oil on the end, and apply the hash oil to the inside of the nail, inside the part that looks like a bucket. Inhale slowly. As you inhale, steadily move the dabber tip with the hash oil on it around the nail to get all of the hash oil off the dabber.

6. Inhale all of the vapor, exhale, and voila!

How To Smoke Hash Oil In A Pipe

Smoking hash oil in a pipe works just like any bong or joint. Just remember to mix the hash oil with a little ground flower to get the consistency you need. Once you’ve packed it, just light up and enjoy. You’ll want to add a mesh to your pipe so you don’t end up getting anything in your mouth.

OR, you can get a Genius Pipe, a device that comes with a revolutionary cooling and filtering mechanism that blocks any solids from going into your mouth while at the same time cooling down your smoke so your hits are as smooth as possible every single time.

How To Smoke Hash Oil From A Battery-Free Vape

One of the “cleanest” ways to smoke hash oil is by eliminating combustion and making the vapor as smooth and cool as possible. 

DynaVap vaporizers might just become your favorite device out there.

DynaVap commits to purer and healthier user experiences. Due to their innovative designs and engineering, we are able to say that we can vape without a battery, no more fussing around with dead devices and long waiting times.

DynaVap vaporizers are battery-free, handheld devices that range in design, shape, and size but all pack a serious punch. These bad boys can withstand an adventure and are great for consuming oils and concentrates if you have the supported accessory.

You will need the DynaCoil adapter to use your weed vape as a concentrate vaporizer or dab pen. The DynaVap devices by themselves are not compatible with wax or concentrate.

One of the main perks of The “M” Plus from DynaVap, for example, is how portable and discreet it is. It does require an external heat source, though, so take that into consideration. Some recommend using a butane heater, DynaVap sells their own heaters, but it might be better for home uses.

The DynaCoil allows the user to suspend concentrates in place inside the vaporizer. This intricate piece is made with medical-grade titanium, making it resistant and easy to clean.

To smoke hash oil on the DynaVap vaporizers, you must insert the DynaCoil into the orifice where the normal coil would go. Then you pack it with your hash oil and start to heat it up. Once you hear the click, you know you’re at the correct temperature and ready to go!

See how easy that was? Pretty sure you’d replace your rig with this setup. All you need is whichever DynaVap vaporizer you prefer, a DynaCoil, and a sexy torch to heat up your system.
