How you access Bulb mode depends on which camera you have.
Generally all "Rebel" cameras get to the Bulb mode by adjusting the shutter speed dial all the way past the 30 second time and the next time wll be "Bulb".
But all the mid-range and above cameras that I've used have their own "B" position on the mode dial.

For some unknown reason i can't get past 30 seconds into bulb mode
Even on my entry-level T6,which doesn't even have a 'B' selection on the mode dial, using the Bulb function to keep the shutter open is a simple process. Download and read your manual.

Not sure what manual you're looking at. Bulb function is clearly described on page 204 of the 80D instruction manual (PDF). Seems simple to me.
EDIT: Also look at pages 205-206.
