ADDING POTENCY TO YOUR WEED WITH BOWL TOPPERS
"For smokers really looking to level up of each of their smoking sessions, adding wax is the best way to blast off to another planet!" This is the advice from someone who works 40 hours a week in a dispensary.
Toppers, topping, or otherwise adding a substance to the top of a bowl has become a popular method of increasing the potency and duration of one's high. Back in the day, this is one of the primary ways hash was consumed. Today's difference includes the quality and consistency of toppers and without debate, the variety of substances available for topping off a bowl of marijuana.
The practice of bowl topping
has probably been going on since the discovery of cannabis. We are an inquisitive people and we like to try things. Think about the person that first decided it was a good idea to lick a toad or eat a mushroom for that matter. The entire planet is nothing more than discoveries springing to life.
Now that there is a stream of new products flowing, there are also new terms and terminologies that are springing up that merits reviewing.
First and foremost, here is a very important tip to know before you put a flame to your mixture. Not all toppings are alike and not all toppings are good for putting on top of a bowl of weed, unless you just want to waste your product.

are high-potency waxes and oils with different properties and extraction processes. Hash, Kief, Wax, Bubble, Nectar, Shatter, Melt, Rosin, Resin, Live Resin and probably by the time you read this, an entirely new list will pop up with new names and methods of elevating the herb, are all types of concentrates containing a powerful dose of medicine.
Usage has become very popular, especially amongst long term cannabis smokers who may have built up a resistance to THC with smoking as their main method of intake.
Dabbing is another term that's become increasingly popular, but what exactly is it? Dabbing usually refers to a dose of concentrate that is heated on a hot surface, typically a nail, and then inhaled. THC is the active ingredient activating the potent effects of dabs. Many say that dabbing is the fastest and most efficient way to get really, really medicated/stoned!
It has been said that smoking dabs as a method of consumption has been around for at least a decade, but the advent of more advanced extraction methods have led to a flood of cannabis concentrates that have boosted dabbing popularity.
It also merits the mention that concentrates have a couple of different extraction forms, solvent and nonsolvent. The difference is in the method used to isolate resin heads. Some solvent based extraction processes use solvents such as butane, CO2, or ethanol, while non solvent extraction techniques may use a natural substance such as water.
It's becoming quite evident that many people are favoring extracts over flower and it's no wonder considering the favored terpene profiles in both taste and smell.
Whatever your desire, dabbing, vaping, eating... there's an untold choice of ways to legally and responsibly consume cannabis.
