Unlike regular bongs, dab rigs have a “nail” at the top of the main body. Nails usually come with a dome that you place over the nail to keep vapors in the nail chamber.
You use a dabber or pick to put a small amount of concentrate on the nail. Once the nail heats up, you can begin inhaling.
A Smoother Hit
Dabbing is a popular way to smoke cannabis because it can deliver much more potent and faster highs. Unlike smoking weed from a regular joint, dabbing involves vaporization rather than combustion, which can produce fewer harmful side effects and preserve more terpenes that create the unique flavor and experience of marijuana. To get the most out of your dab rig, it is essential to understand its components. A dab rig consists of a water pipe with an attachment for heating cannabis concentrates called a nail (also known as a banger). Most dab rigs also include a dome, a specialized cover that keeps the vapor trapped until you are ready to inhale it.
To use a dab rig, place your favorite shatter or oil on the nail using a dabber and heat it with a butane torch until it is red hot. Then, inhale the vapor through the mouthpiece. Be sure to remove the nail from the banger and swab it with isopropyl alcohol before you use it again.
A More Powerful High
Dabs are among the most potent forms of cannabis available, delivering powerful highs with just a tiny amount. As such, knowing how to take dabs properly is essential to get the most out of your wax and protect your rig from damage is critical. A dab rig is a water pipe modified to handle concentrates. It consists of a glass banger or nail that replaces the usual bowl and a dome that vaporizes the concentrates as you inhale. A torch heats the pin, and you can also find electronic nails that use a battery to heat up. When you’re done using your rig, use a Q-tip and some isopropyl alcohol to clean off the nail. This prevents leftover resin from burning and clogging the airways in the banger. The reclaim can be used again, and you’ll cut your waste in half. The reclaim won’t have the same flavor as fresh wax, but it still delivers a satisfying high.
A More Efficient Way to Smoke
It takes less heat to activate the cannabinoids in wax than it does to combust dry herbs or flowers, which means you get higher with the same amount of concentrate. Dabbing also cuts down on wasted cannabis, which makes it a more sustainable way to enjoy your favorite strains. Luckily, most regular bongs have the potential to be converted into a dab rig. Start by removing the bowl, measuring the diameter of the downstream’s female joint (typically in millimeters), and finding a nail with a male joint that fits that size. Use a butane torch precisely and follow the manufacturer’s instructions to heat your nail safely. A digital thermometer or thermometer is also recommended to find your ideal temperature. When it’s ready, apply the shatter onto the nail using a dabber or claw, spin the carb cap to seal the dab, and inhale. Repeat as desired. If you want a cleaner dabbing experience, regularly wipe your nail and banger with isopropyl alcohol or rubbing alcohol.
A More Portable Waay to Smoke
A dab rig is a small bong-like device that vaporizes cannabis concentrates (like hash, shatter, or rosin) rather than burning them and inhaling the smoke. They usually have a smaller, more portable design that can be easier to hold and carry than a regular bong. A good dab rig will have a nail, also known as a banger, made of heat-resistant materials like titanium or quartz. You will need a torch lighter to heat the pin to the proper temperature for dabbing, typically to a red-hot color. You will then place a dab of your preferred concentrate onto the heated nail using a dabber tool and inhale the vapor, just as you would with a dry herb from a bong. Some rigs come with accessories, such as a carb cap and a dome, that help to improve the experience even more. They are typically fitted with female joints, which have a wider opening than male joints and can accept a wide range of accessories.
