Dab Rigs FAQ

What is Dabbing?

Dabbing refers to the process of vaporizing legal concentrates and this is generally achieved with the help of a small dab rig or water pipe with the addition of a nail or quartz banger.

What is a Dab Rig?

A dab rig is water pipe that is designed to work with legal concentrates. They are typically smaller than a traditional bong and generally only designed to efficiently with concentrates and not dry herbs. Dab rigs are typically supplied with some sort of nail or quartz banger so you can use it with concentrates. The nail/banger is where the concentrates are placed, generally after heating the nail banger, although some people prefer the cold start method. Nails are generally made out of titanium while bangers are typically made out of quartz and are the most popular choice.

How does a dab rig work?

Dab rigs work all basically the same no matter which one that you decide on. They are a small water pipe that will percolate the vapour and help to cool it down. Firstly you heat your nail or quartz banger with a butane torch to a certain temperature range*, you can then add a small amount of legal concentrate to the nail/banger with a dabbing tool and inhale as normal. You may also want to consider using a carb cap so less concentrate escapes and you can dab with a lower heat which will provide a better flavour profile.

What is the difference between a dab rig and an electric dab rig?

When it comes to dab rigs, there are two primary categories to consider: manual and electric. Now, let's dive into the fascinating world of these rigs without further ado.

In the realm of manual dab rigs, a touch of fire is required to unlock their true potential. Picture this: you hold a butane torch or another heat source, ready to ignite the magic within. With a careful touch, you bring the heat to the rig, setting the stage for an extraordinary experience. It's a dance between flame and concentrate, where the art of vaporization unfolds before your eyes.

On the other hand, we have the electric dab rigs, a marvel of modern technology. These rigs possess a special heating element that takes charge of vaporizing your precious concentrate. No need to wield a torch or seek an external heat source. Simply activate the rig, and watch as the heating element works its enchantment, transforming your concentrate into a delightful vapor.

Whether you prefer the traditional allure of manual dab rigs or the convenience of their electric counterparts, both categories offer their own unique charm. So, embark on your dabbing journey, and let the rig of your choice elevate your experience to new heights.
