I tried captain crunch, both the "wax" and "shatter" (There were two on offer and I ordered both)
It was my first time though. I bought a basic dab rig and blow torch thingy. (melted marshmallow is the best) Most people who dab want to avoid smoking mass amounts to get really stoned from what I can tell. I really like dabs. Definitely gets you high. I'm in Aus so have never seen any locally or anything, just here on lil big and youtube inst etc. You might be able to hot knife the dabs or a joint as mentioned but its actually really hard to work with. The "shatter" I got was more like honey and was as sticky as industrial glue or something. The wax was a little more handlable.
Anyway thought I'd share my experience.
