Certain CBD concentrates also give consumers and patients that ability to directly experience and taste the flavorful terpenes and other plant compounds that may not be present in CBD oil.
The preparation and process of dabbing CBD takes a fair amount of effort, not to mention the need for a dab rig, butane torch, and other accessories such as caps and dab tools. You might be wondering why someone would go out of their way to dab CBD. Are there certain benefits to this uncommon method of consumption?
“So far I'm really liking it. When I dab pure CBD I notice relaxation, and my anxiety lessens. When I mix dabs and CBD I notice that the high feels way chiller, and the come down is less exhausting,” one user reported.
How to Dab CBD
One of the primary benefits of dabbing CBD is that the therapeutic, calming effects can be felt within minutes of consumption. This makes dabbing an effective option for those seeking immediate relief, especially when compared with oral application, the most common method of CBD consumption.

Cannabidiol (CBD) is also available in concentrated forms such as wax, shatter, and crumble. They can be vaped as virtually pure isolate, extracts featuring the full complement of cannabis's terpenes and cannabinoids including THC, and terpsolate — an isolate fortified with liquid terpenes.

On a Reddit subreddit called DailyDabbers, a forum posted on August 2017 about dabbing yielded some interesting responses from the social media platform's vast community. Reddit users who dab CBD reported positive effects, including a calming and relaxing effect, along with less anxiety.
There are so many ways to use CBD shatter. It can be added to edibles and even vaped. If you plan to use CBD shatter to cook, then you should monitor the temperature as high temperature can reduce the effectiveness of the terpenes.
CBD shatter is sold in the shape of white rocks as a CBD product and is formed by process of filtration. The process of creating the shatter is a very specific one, and if not done properly, may produce another product. If you prefer to make CBD shatter instead of purchasing it, then you will need to know how it is made. Here is the process in which it is formed:
2. Terpene is then added to the CBD isolate, which provides flavour and aroma to CBD shatter as well as increases the benefits of CBD. This second to final stage of this process creates a small, white crystal-like powder that is 99% CBD.

3. Now allow to set properly. At this stage, it should be protected from light and heat or this will disturb the process. If the CBD shatter is physically disturbed it will become dark and sticky and will transform into CBD wax. After it has set, CBD shatter is formed.
1. CBD must be extracted from the hemp plant and then go through filtration. This helps to remove the residue of oil and plant material from the product. The process of filtration also allows for the removal of any THC that was present in the plant before. After filtration is complete, CBD isolate, which is a pure form of CBD oil, is left.
CBD shatter is a solid-like, concentrated extract of cannabis. It has a higher concentration of CBD when compared to CBD oil and cannabis. It is a favourite among marijuana users, reasons being, it is easier to use, not messy and is more potent than others. CBD shatter is also not soluble and can be smoked in a pipe or vaped in a vaporizer.
The process of making CBD shatter
I have a friend who has to stop THC for a drug test and wants to start dabbing pure CBD, I would love to be able to turn our CBD isolate into more of a wax like THC that we can continue to dab together, and be similar to usual THC wax so he does't feel left out.
I usually put drops of terpenes on my CBD isolate (crystal) and it slightly changes the consistency briefly until I refreeze it into crystal form again.
Would Adding more drops of terpenes and re-freezing multiple times turn one's CBD isolate into more of a wax that is easy to dab using a designated dabber tool?
Has anyone tried turning their CBD Isolate into a more of a waxy/concentrate texture for dabbing?
I would love to find out. If anyone has not done so, throw down some ideas that might help me out. I will do it for science. I am just all out of CBD isolate and would love to know if I could do this before actually purchasing more CBD. The CBD crystal is beautiful but I would much prefer to turn it into my own tastey medical wax with whatever flavor(s) "terpenes" I want. The wax would probably be pretty damn clear and look awesome anyways. I am just unsure how much terpenes I would need to add to create a flavorful consistency like shatter.
