Dabbing On A Budget

We offer the lowest prices on dab rigs, oil rigs, dab nails and all other dabbing accessories. In order to get the most from your concentrates, there are a few different things you will need. In this article, we will go over budget friendly options. Don’t be fooled by the low prices, all of our pieces are made with high-quality glass and undergo strict quality control measures.

Dab Rigs under $100

The first and most important thing you will need to dab on a budget is a dab rig! If you already have a water pipe or bong you can convert it into a dab rig all you need to do is swap out the dry herb bowl for a dab nail of the correct joint size and gender. We highly recommend having a dedicated piece to use with concentrates and another piece to use with dry herbs. If you don’t already have a dab rig or bong don’t worry! We offer a huge selection of Cheap Dab Rigs Under $100. When searching for the perfect oil rig there are a few things to keep in mind. You will want a piece that has a 90-degree joint so you can safely and easily heat your nail without causing any damage to your rig or risk burning yourself. The next thing to look for is size; cheap dab rigs are typically smaller in size, which is why they are usually cheaper. Smaller dab rigs are a good choice because they are easy to travel with and also very easy to clean. When dabbing concentrates you do not want an excessive amount of percolators because it weakens the vapor quality. When shopping for cheap dab rigs online keep you will want to look for a piece that one or two percolators so you get good diffusion but also good flavor from your concentrates.

Affordable Dab Nail

The next thing you will need for dabbing is a dab nail. The most common and affordable nail is the quartz banger. We offer two different versions, a 2mm thick quartz banger and a 4mm thick quartz banger. The 4mm thick version will retain heat longer because of its thicker walls. Both are made from high-quality quartz with large size buckets so you can vaporize as much concentrates, as you’d like. Quartz nails if cleaned and maintained can last forever because they can withstand extreme temperatures. The other good thing about quartz bangers is they move the bucket away from your rig so you don’t risk damaging your dab rig with heat from your dab torch. Another budget-friendly option is the 6 in 1 titanium nail. This nail is great because it will fit any oil rig joint you will ever have, male or female, 10, 14 or 18mm.

Dab Torch Under $40

So now that you have your dab rig with your dab nail it’s time to heat that nail up quickly and efficiently. In order to do that you will need a dab torch. We do not recommend using any ole torch you having lying around the house, as it might not have enough of a flame output to adequately heat your nail in a timely manner. We offer a wide variety of affordable dab torches on our online head shop. All you need to add to make the torch work is a can of butane, which you can find at almost any gas station or convenience store. Torches come in many different sizes and styles. If you plan on traveling a lot we recommend getting a smaller torch so it’s easier to store and travel with. Most torches come with adjustable flame settings so you can heat your nail as quickly or as slowly as you’d like.

Dabber Tools in All Shapes and Sizes

Ok so you have your dab rig, and your nail heated what’s next? Well, now it's time to smoke! So you have to add your concentrates to your heated nail to vaporize them. The way you do this is with a dabber tool. A dabber tool is simply a glass, titanium, ceramic or quartz tool that is designed to place your dabs safely and easily in your heated nail so you do not risk burning yourself on the hot nail. DO NOT just use anything you have laying around because not everything can withstand extreme temperatures like dabber tools are designed to do. Dab Tools come in a wide variety of sizes and designs but they all do exactly the same thing. The most affordable dab tool is a stainless steel dabber that is available on our website. Some dabbers also have a carb cap attached making it even more affordable to get a carp cab and dabber at the same time.

Glass Characters Carb Cap

Now that you have spent money on a new dab rig set up you want to get the most from your concentrates right? Well, that is where a carb cap comes in. Carb caps go on top of your heated dab nail to restrict airflow and allow your concentrates to be vaporized at lower temperatures. This ensures that you do not waste any of your precious concentrates. This will also give you better flavor and much more vapor production. As previously mentioned, you can buy a dabber tool that also has a carb cap on the other end, which will save you time and money. Be sure you get the right carb cap for your nail. The carb cap used for a quartz banger is different than the one you would use on a titanium nail. The carb cap needs to cover your entire nail to be able to reduce airflow.

Silicone Dab Storage Container

Last but not least, you need something to store your concentrates in when you’re not using them. It is important to keep them in a safe place and in a container, they will not stick too. Silicone containers will make it very easy to remove what you need without wasting a lot of concentrates getting stuck to the side of a regular glass jar. Silicone dab jars come in a wide variety of sizes and styles so you can fit a few different kinds of concentrates, a little bit or a lot.
