Dabbing is one of the many ways to smoke marijuana, but new to the trend is dab rigs. You typically have a nail and a plate where you will put your concentrate, then heat up your nail with lighter until it vaporizes. It’s not hard to learn how beginner dab rig work, but there are other things you need to keep in mind when using them like what materials are safe for use and special safety precautions.
How It Works
Concentrates come in a variety of forms like wax, shatter, or oil. They are commonly used by smoking but to get the quickest and purest way, it’s best to use them with dab rigs. If you don’t have one, it is easy to make or it can be found at smoke shops or online. You will also need a torch which you can find at same places you bought your rig. Other than that, you need cannabis concentrate which is sold in bottles or containers and nail which is metal rod with a flat top surface that contacts the wax. In dabbing, the nail is heated to an oil level and then put into the wax to heat it and start vaporizing it.
Dabbing is a booming business and also a very dangerous one. The first thing you need to do with any device used to consume cannabis is educate yourself on proper dabbing techniques and safety precautions. It is just like other drugs, but still you have to be careful. Remember that a well-designed rig has many parts that can fail suddenly without warning, causing injury or even death. You should never use water on your nail or in the flame if you don’t know how it works, because it can cause a dangerous reaction. You also need to remember that you are dealing with a very strong and concentrated form of marijuana, which can be dangerous if not properly handled.
Choosing the Rig
You will find many types of dab rigs available in the market – some are cheap and others are expensive. Some are small while others can hold more concentrate at once. They have shapes like the ones you see with e-cigarettes, hookahs, and other forms of smoking paraphernalia while some look more like traditional pipes but just bigger. Prices range from as low as $50 to a few hundred dollars for high-end pieces where most of it is composed of precious metals because they look better and also conduct heat better than cheaper materials.
