Cold-Start Dabbing 101


Do you want to take a flavorful dab without the fear of coughing? Do you not have a device to measure the temperature of your banger with? Then, a cold start dab might be the perfect technique for you. In this guide, we will teach you how to cold start dab, the opposite way of traditional dabbing, to ensure that you get flavorful hits, save time, and preserve your banger for longer.

What is a Cold Start Dab?

Cold start dabbing or reverse dabbing is a technique of taking a dab that is opposite to the traditional way. With the traditional method, you heat the banger first and then add the concentrate. However, with the cold start dabbing technique, you add the concentrate to the banger first before heating it up.

The Benefits of Cold Start Dabbing

Cold start dabbing has several benefits over traditional dabbing. Firstly, it saves time since you don't have to wait for the banger to heat up and then cool down. Secondly, it preserves your banger for longer. By heating it up at a slower rate, you're lowering the chance of heating up your oil too hot and chazzing your banger, which can destroy it altogether.

How to Cold Start Dab

To cold start dab, you need:
Dab Rig
Carb Cap
Dab Tool
You can also use the HAMR by Myster Cold Start Dab Set, which includes all the above.
Isopropyl Alcohol

Here are the steps to follow to cold start dab:

  1. Grab your concentrate with your dab tool and place it in your banger.

  2. Cover your banger with a carb cap.

  3. Turn on your torch and slowly heat up the bottom of your banger.

  4. Turn off the torch when you see vapor build-up.

  5. Inhale from the mouthpiece and rotate the carb cap in a circle to make the oil heat evenly on your banger.

  6. Spin the carb cap in a circle to get an even hit.

  7. Inhale until there's no smoke left.

  8. Reheat if needed for a second hit.

  9. Clean your banger by wiping the excess oil out of it with a Q-tip dipped in isopropyl alcohol.


Cold start dabbing is a great way to get flavorful hits, save time, and preserve your banger for longer. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you'll be able to cold start dab like a pro in no time. Remember to pay attention to the heating of your banger to avoid overheating your oil and causing your banger to chazz.

Happy dabbing!
