Number of puffs
DabTabs are an innovative cannabis concentrate product. It’s a tiny piece of ceramic, which they call a “Dablet,” which is infused with cannabis concentrate. In this case, the Klutch brand uses strain-specific full-spectrum CO2 oil, from its own top-shelf cannabis flower. Klutch is one of the most popular cannabis brands here in Ohio. They also have some of the most popular strains too. Each jar, here in Ohio, contains 17 “Dablets”, and each one is infused with 50 mg of cannabis concentrate.
You just shake a dablet out of the little jar and load it into your device. I use this vaporizer called a Shatterizer DabTabs edition. Mine came with an extra glass top, an extra DabTabs atomizer, and even one standard Ctech atomizer for regular concentrates. I’ve read that people have success with using DabTabs in standard bangers and also e rigs like the Puffco Peak, but I’ve just stuck with the Shatterizer, because It’s easy to use and it pumps out the vapor!
- 100% cannabis derived cannabinoids and terpenes
- Innovative, almost no mess concentrate option in DabTabs
- It’s much easier to track usage and see how much you have left, in contrast to traditional concentrates.
- Others have success using a regular banger and torch, but I just never got the hang of that, so I haven’t tried it myself.
- State maximum allowed THC percentage (70%)
- High price at most dispensaries, but some places have them for much less.
- There are a lot of negative reviews and misconceptions about Dabtabs. People don’t understand what they are buying, and then get mad at the company.
- Dabtabs work great in the Shatterizer DabTabs edition vaporizer. It’s a pain if you have to buy that device to use the DabTabs.
Recommendations: I really like these Dabtabs so far! I just got my medical card in July, after years of dreaming about going to dispensaries. I’ve tried a bunch of vape carts and concentrates and flower too, and while I love concentrates like live hash rosin and live resin, they’re really messy and also difficult to dose accurately. I have live wax and live hash rosin that I got last week on sale, and I really have no idea how much I have left or how much I use in each dab. It’s another story completely with these Dabtabs! I don’t have to worry about storing them properly, right side up, like regular concentrates, and you can even just tape a label on each little bottle and stick them in your pocket.
Also, the Shatterizer Dabtabs Edition has a nifty little case that attaches by a magnet to the bottom of the battery, that can hold a few Dabtabs. I guess my only request would be that Klutch starts labeling the actual jars, just so it’s easier to remember which is which. I’m not a big fan of the packaging, but I’m eccentric in that regard. I always have to carefully cut the clear plastic, and make it like a clamshell, so that I can put the little jar back and it will stay there.
I love how the Dabtabs I’ve tried so far are so much like their similar strains of flower, and that is precisely what I was hoping. Recently I’ve started taping small labels onto each bottle, to remember which strains they are. That is a necessity when you have eight bottles of Dabtabs. Talk about a “first world problem”!
I recently decided to try some DabTabs, after a few months of thinking about it. The main reason I didn’t try them sooner was the price at the dispensary where I usually go. When I could get nearly a gram of live rosin concentrate for less money than these DabTabs, I had always gone with the live rosin in the past. This changed after I found that one dispensary sells them for a much lower price, and I made the hour drive and bought one jar of them last week. Sherbhead was my choice then because that’s one of my favorite strains and I’ve had it in flower before. I didn’t have the Shatterizer at that point, so I barely tried to use them. I stuck one in my Dynavap, and that worked okay, but not really.
After I got my Shatterizer, I pretty much fell in love instantly! I ended up using the standard concentrate coil for some live wax and live rosin I got too, and it works awesome. I made the drive back up to Bloom, just a couple of days ago, and I bought four new DabTabs strains. Managed to get my hands on OG Kush, Orange 43, Sunday Driver, and Super Lemon Dog. I didn’t even mean to pick one indica and one Sativa, and one “O” and one “S” strain, but it turned out that way.
The nice budtender at Bloom recommended Sunday Driver, and so far it was a great suggestion. Orange 43 is one of the most popular Sativa strains here in Ohio, if not the most popular, and that is the main topic of review for today. Orange 43, or “O43” as it is abbreviated, is a cross between White Fire 43 and Orange. Here in Ohio, they list O43 as a Sativa, and as far as I know, Klutch is the only cultivator in the state to offer this strain. I have had it before and it’s a favorite for me. I have had the Klutch Orange 43 strain flower, CO2 vape oil cart, and also CO2 oil DabTabs.
Orange 43 is possibly my favorite Sativa strain that I’ve tried so far out of any medical Cannabis products that I’ve tried. I want to mention again that I’m still pretty new, so that’s not a huge statement. From what I’ve read online and heard from other people, Orange 43 is one of the most popular Sativa strains in Ohio. My personal favorite Sativa is Grow Ohio’s Apollo 13. I picked up some of that a while ago on sale, and I still have some that I’m saving. That one is a phenotype of the legendary strain, Jack Herer.
Not to get too sidetracked here, the aroma of these DabTabs is remarkable. Upon opening the tiny, plastic bottle, you can immediately smell the cannabis aroma, and with Orange 43, the citrus notes are unmistakable. I think it’s especially interesting to note how each strain of DabTabs has its own unique scent, and the different strains are all a slightly different shade too. I think that these are all really good signs because it shows that Klutch is using unique strains for each different DabTabs option.
So far, for the last few days, I have tried to exclusively use the DabTabs I bought, and no other cannabis products. That has been going well, and I got a really good selection for any time of day. For both of the Sativa leaning strains I got, they had some CBD to compliment the THC. I can appreciate that, and also I really enjoy their nice, light, energizing citrus terpenes as well. Both Orange 43 and Super Lemon Dog have really nice, citrus notes in their flavor and aroma, and they’re both great for daytime.
On the other hand, the more Indica leaning strains, the OG Kush and Sunday Driver, have zero CBD, and the OG Kush has more of a gassy, funky flavor and scent. The Sunday Driver has some nice, sweet notes to it, and reminds me of some Grandaddy Purple, or Grandpa’s Breathstar, which has GDP as one of its parent strains. I have really been enjoying both of these strains later in the day when I want to wind down and relax.
One thing that I really love about these Klutch DabTabs is that they make it so much easier to tell exactly how much you are using and how much you have left. With conventional concentrates, you have to estimate how much you load each time, and how much you have left. It’s much more difficult to judge how long traditional concentrates will last for me, compared to these DabTabs.
Klutch is one of the most famous Cannabis brands here in Ohio if you look on the Ohio Marijuana subreddit or just look up Ohio Marijuana reviews, and for good reason. They have even recently started producing and selling their own live hash rosin and live hash rosin jam. They are only the second Ohio brand to offer rosin, from what I’ve seen and read.
I’m a believer in the Entourage Effect, so I wish that Klutch would provide the terpene content for us. I can taste and smell the terpenes when I vaporize these DabTabs, but it would be nice to know exactly which ones and how much there is in each strain. I really like how each bottle of DabTabs has the maximum allowed THC percentage and also the maximum days allowance of THC too. When I first got my medical card here, I was appalled to see the 70% maximum THC limit for concentrates and vapes. Since I learned about the Entourage Effect, I definitely appreciate our options more.
Another quirk of note in our medical cannabis system here is our “days allowance”. I won’t go into too many details, but basically, one day’s worth of THC in a concentrate or vape cart is 590 mg. This means that you will often see carts and concentrates that have 0.85 grams, or 850 mg of oil because 70% of that is right at the one-day maximum. There are also full gram carts here, but they have lower THC content, to not have too much over the 590 mg limit, and they just have more CBD or terpenes than the other 0.85 gram options.
I recently read that one brand here, Certified Cultivators Carts, actually adds Delta 8 THC, to bring down the delta 9 percentage to the 70% allowed. I thought that was interesting, but I don’t know how I feel about them only using delta 9, delta 8, and terpenes. It seems like most people want a full spectrum option now, and would prefer the more standard CBD, CBG, CBN, and other minor cannabinoids that are in the actual flower.
Who would enjoy this?
I think that any fan of Klutch would really enjoy these DabTabs, but you should get either the Shatterizer DabTabs edition, or I’ve read that they work well in e rigs like the Puffco Peak. Both of the budtenders that I saw when I bought DabTabs said that they use a standard banger and torch, and I remember the nice budtender specifically said she does cold start when I went on Saturday. She also recommended the Sunday Driver strain, so I hope that I will see her again the next time I go to Bloom.
Good flavor and effects!
I really enjoy all of the Klutch products I’ve tried so far, but I wish they listed the terpenes on their labels. From looking online, it says that their Sunday Driver has Limonene, Caryophyllene, Linalool, and Pinene. Their Orange 43 has Terpinolene, Myrcene, Limonene, and Pinene. Klutch Super Lemon Dog has Ocimene, Farnesene, Myrcene, Terpinolene, Pinene, and Limonene. I can’t find a Klutch OG Kush, but under their Josh D brand, they have the terpenes as Limonene, Myrcene, Caryophyllene, and Linalool.
I recognized Limonene and Linaloool as the terpenes responsible for the citrus flavor and aroma of Limonene, and Linalool has a nice lavender scent and flavor. A quick Google search shows that Humolene is the compound in hops, so it gives an earthy, spicy flavor and aroma. Last, but not least, Caryophyllene is the compound found in black pepper, basil, and oregano, with a funky warmth similar to cinnamon and cloves.
These DabTabs recreate the experience of vaporizing the actual cannabis flower, so I think they probably also leave behind some smell. It should dissipate quickly, but if you’re looking for a less conspicuous option, then maybe a distillate vape cart would be better.
Similar Cannabis products for comparison
I’m not sure if comparable products to these DabTabs would be other concentrates or vape carts. With the Shatterizer DabTabs Edition vaporizer, these DabTabs are nearly as convenient as vape carts, and actually are more convenient in some regards. You don’t have to worry about putting the DabTabs in your pocket because you have to heat them up pretty high in order for the CO2 oil to have anything happen to it. Also, with the Shatterizer, you have to be careful not to tilt it too far in one direction, because the Dablet will fall out of the atomizer.
It usually sticks to the inside of the glass top, from the reclaim that’s building up in there, and I just have to take off the top and pull out the Dabtab and put it back. I think that people would really like these DabTabs, if they gave them a chance and also have the right hardware. They offer a quick, easy, no-mess way to enjoy the top shelf cannabis strains that I know and love, and since I’ve found them for an affordable price, they have quickly become a favorite of mine.
I am so happy that I finally tried these Klutch DabTabs! They looked interesting for a while, but the mixed reviews I read online combined with the high price tag had steered me to other concentrates or vape options in the past. I love this Shatterizer DabTabs edition vaporizer too. It’s so cool how you can watch the little Dablet, when you do the preheat function. The top of it starts to look slick, and then bubbles form and pop, and vapor starts filling up the chamber. It’s amazing how much vapor you can get from such a tiny piece of ceramic. It is a pain that you need the right device in order to enjoy these DabTabs. But from my experience, I think it’s worth it.
P.S. I ended up going back to the dispensary and buying even more DabTabs, because of the “Green Friday” sales. Now I have 8 different strains, and I think they will keep me medicated for a while.
