Glass Dab Rigs
Dab Rigs are pretty new on the cannabis scene but they’re incredibly popular! They’re a very specific type of water pipe used for “dabbing” (inhaling concentrates) in the smoothest way possible. A lot of patients have turned to dabbing so they can enjoy the potency of their concentrates but get away from the harsh effects of smoking. Dabbing is a pretty simple two-step process. First, you heat a “nail” (a ceramic, titanium or quartz bowl designed for dabbing) with a portable blowtorch until it’s extremely hot. Then you use a metal tool to press the concentrate on the hot nail causing it to vaporize instantly, while simultaneously inhaling through the mouthpiece on the dab rig. The vapor rapidly passes underwater, cooling and quickly hitting your lungs.
As long as you use a high-quality dab rig, there aren’t many drawbacks to dabbing. They use up concentrates efficiently, they give you heavy hits, and they’re pretty easy to do. And as a nice bonus, dab rigs are cool to look at! There are a lot of different unique designs to choose from, and you can personalize them by mixing and matching components to match your style.
