Cold start dabbing aka reverse dabbing is a tasty way to experience your concentrates. This method of dabbing hasn’t been widely discussed until recently. However, it is growing in popularity. This could be because this method of consuming concentrates preserves the flavor and terpenes in your dabs. You will definitely get a much tastier hit but some say that you must waste it to taste it. This is because your banger is often left with residual concentrates that aren’t very tasty if reheated. Others, however, debate that if you do it right, this isn’t the case.
What You Need for a Cold Start Dab
- Clean Dab Rig with a Clean Bucket Banger
- A Carb Cap
- Cannabis Concentrates
It is very important that you only cold start dab through a clean banger and rig. This is because dirty dab rigs will alter the taste of your oil. A bucket banger is preferred for cold dabbing as it allows for even heat distribution and there is no risk of the oil overflowing. The carb cap is essential to lock in the heat and agitate your concentrates in the banger once heated.
How to Cold Dab
- Place concentrates in the bucket banger
- Place the carb cap on top of the banger
- Steadily heat the bucket banger with the blowtorch for approximately 5-8 seconds
- Agitate the carb cap to stir the oil

Once you’re ready to begin simply place a chunk of concentrates in the banger. You will then want to place your carb cap on the top of the bucket banger. Next, it is time to heat your concentrates. To do so, start up your blowtorch and apply heat to the bottom of the bucket banger. It is recommended to utilize the tip of the flame and apply heat directly from the bottom rather than from the sides. You will want to heat the bucket banger for roughly 5-8 seconds.
It is important to watch the concentrates while you are heating and remove the heat once they are melted and begin to bubble. Next, sit down your blowtorch, inhale from the mouthpiece of your rig and enjoy.
In most cases, you will get 1-3 pulls from the rig when cold dabbing. This depends of course on how much concentrates were utilized, how large of hits you can inhale, and the heat of the rig when cold dabbing.
It is highly recommended to always clean any residual concentrates from the banger after usage to ensure that your next sesh is the tastiest sesh it can be!
