9. Don’t Chazz The Banger
This rule is exclusively for the cannabis concentrate enthusiasts in the room.
A “banger” is a dish used for the consumption of cannabis concentrates on an oil dab rig. Usually made of quartz, ceramic, titanium, or glass, bangers are specially designed to tolerate the high temperatures that are necessary to vaporize cannabis extracts.
“Chazzing” the banger means to dirty it up. Excess concentrate that isn’t vaporized will begin to puddle and sit on the banger, creating a layer of hardened carbon build up that makes it challenging for the next person to experience a tasty and efficient dab.
There are a few precautions that considerate dabbers often take to ensure that they don’t chazz the banger. The first rule is: don’t take hot dabs. Vaporizing at high temperatures will quickly cause a carbon build up. Dabbing at lower temperatures will result in any excess concentrate pooling on the banger instead of burning and chazzing. This “pooled” concentrate can be easily removed using a cotton swab once the banger cools down a bit. Additionally, take proper sized dabs. Dabs that are too large will be hard to completely vaporize and are more likely to leave an unnecessary residue. Larger bangers with more surface area and thicker bottoms will help to retain heat and hopefully minimize chazzing. Carb caps are another way to fully enjoy lower temperature dabs.
Follow these steps to ensure a clean and consistent consumption experience during your next dab sesh.
