What Are Dab Rigs
Before we move on to the list, it’s best to understand what dab rigs are. Dab rigs or oil rigs are special smoking pipes designed for smoking oils and wax with ease. These dabbing pipes are becoming really popular among lovers of concentrates, mainly because they are a healthier and cleaner way of smoking cannabis.
A typical dab rig has three components: the chamber, the nail (which is the heating element), and the down stem. Dab nails can be made of different materials such as quartz, ceramic and titanium. Dab nails can also be domed or domeless. Domed nails are much easier to use because they help you to regulate the airflow as.
The process of smoking or vaping wax is called “dabbing,” and it becomes easier for the rookies after a few sessions. Dabbing is one of the quickest absorption methods you can use, especially when it comes to smoking or vaping.
When dabbing, you have to heat the nail first with the torch before applying your wax or oil. Once you have placed your concentrate on the nail, put your mouth on the mouthpiece, and inhale the vapor. It's best to always apply a small amount of wax on the nail at a time.
