When to Dab
define

It's a lot of things, really.

Dabbing can mean patting softly with a brush or towel. It's also used to refer to inhaling the vapor of cannabis extract oil. But, more recently, it's a dance craze.

A dictionary definition can tell you what dabbing is. But it can't tell you when to do it or what you’ll look like—for that, you need some visual aids.
