Why do dabs make me cough so hard

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by curtikins, Nov 10, 2014.

  1. I been smoking dabs out of an oil rig for a good 5-6 months, iv gone through different dealers and tried from reclaim to golden honey and no matter what I'll always cough, I take just about less than a pea size and sometimes 2 pea sizes, and they ways make me cough really really bad, one time I took a dab so big I had a panic attack and started puking for 3 hours, but anyways will I ever just get to a point where I can take any size dab without coughing? I really wanna work my way up to taking gram dabs without choking to desth, I also dab every night about 2-3 times a day about 4-5 pea size dabs. Thank you!

  2. Vape or edibles.
  3. Oh might I put I also been smoking bud before dabs for 2 and a half years
  4. One of the biggest mistakes I see with people dabbing is they over heat the nail. If you over heat it then the smoke will be hotter and cause you to cough more. The nail shouldn't be glowing red when you hit it let it cool for a few seconds first.

  5. ^Agreed. If you overheat the nail you get that white build up on the titanium, and end up combusting most of your hit instead of vaporizing most of it.

    Try taking smaller dabs, like 0.05g (half hit) rather than larger 0.1g (full hit) dabs. Larger dabs can make you cough, in my experience.
  6. I always cough when I take big deep hit but now I take a just right hit.

  7. I love taking "just right" hits, because then I can take all my hits back to back and get higher instead of wasting time between hits coughing my lungs out.
  8. as mentioned, i would be mindful of nail temp and also water level...too much water will make the hit harsh and stale, while not enough will not cool and diffuse it enough. have fun experimenting!
  9. Because it expands in your lungs like hash does. It won't seem like much right when it hits your lungs but after a second or two it expands and you end up coughing your brains out. Aside from not overheating the nail your lungs will just have to get used to it. I love it when i buy some bud and it expands like that in my lungs.
  10. Lol you can tell when taking a big hit that it was too much. When you take just right hits it'll be more easier to take more hits but unfortunately I was drinking liquor at the time so I'm good with 1 hit.

  11. I don't know about any of y'all but I was born an raised in Texas where just bud is sometimes hard to get off the streets let alone dabs so that was something I had never done before I met my fiance on FB and moved to Washington with him as this is where he is from and from the first time that I have done dabs I've never chocked it doesn't matter the temp of the nail the size of the hit I've taken a hit that was 5 different oils one was 96% I've dabbed up to 99% without coughing and my fiance even covered the nail to try to get me to cough was hoping if maybe I saw why people cough I could figure out why I don't
