What is Hash Oil?
Hash oil is a concentrated cannabis extract that can be smoked, vaped, eaten, or rubbed onto the skin. The use of hash oil is sometimes called “dabbing” or “burning.”
Hash oil comes from cannabis plants and contains THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), the same active ingredient as other marijuana products.
Marijuana concentrates, including hash oil, are potent extracts from cannabis plants. The products available vary in form. The table below outlines some common forms of hash oil.
Most of the items listed above range in color from golden to amber to dark brown. They may be translucent or opaque.

What is dabbing?
Dabs are concentrated forms of cannabis that come in a variety of textures. They are consumed in a dab rig, e-rig—”electronic rig”—or dab pen. The process of dabbing is extremely hot and flash vaporizes dabs in the range of 400-600°F, whereas combusting or smoking flower happens at around 350°F.
A typical dab rig looks similar to a bong—it is a glass piece with a chamber for water, except instead of a bowl for flower, a rig has a nail for dabs. Because of the high temperatures needed to dab, the nail is usually heated with a torch and allowed to cool to the right temperature before dropping in a dab.
What is a dab tool?
A dab tool is a small, handheld wand used to safely and effectively get your dab from its container to a hot nail when dabbing. They can resemble a dentist’s tool—one end has a specific shape for handling dabs, and some shapes work best with certain concentrates.
As dabs are small amounts of concentrate, a dab tool allows you to precisely dose and apply dabs so you don’t make a sticky mess and so your hands stay well away from a hot nail.
