What are Dab Rigs?

Before buying or adopting any practice, you want to be sure that you understand dabbing. This is a safer technique for inhaling smoke. There are no direct flames burning herbs, concentrates, or oils. Instead, wax boils in a vapor since this technique utilizes convective heating instead of conductive heating. 

What is a Dab Rig?

This refers to a pipe used to smoke oils and concentrates. You can also refer to it as a concentrate rig. They come in different designs and varieties. Usually, dab rigs incorporate 2-step processes, the first being a torch heating the nail before it gets to the concentrate. It is after this that you get to inhale the vapor being released.

How Dab Rigs Work

This depends on the type of concentrate you settle for. It incorporates a glass vapor slide, a 90-degree joint, a recycler, and a nail. The nail is the most significant since it is needed to complete the dabbing process. The nail can be quartz, titanium, or glass. 


Each of these surface materials has its benefits and demerits. Consider these when setting for your best preference. 


Dab rigs can also feature vapor domes that fit the nails and prevent you from losing the concentrated vapor produced. They also have 90-degree joints and are smaller than traditional water pipes.
