Dab Rigs

Dabbing is a very simple process. But for anyone who's new to or unfamiliar with dabbing, the specific terms like "nail" and "dome" might seem positively perplexing at first.

However, like most other things, it somehow comes a lot easier and more natural once you've actually done it.

After you have a few crucial things you need for a basic dabbing setup like a dab rig, dab nail, carb cap, dabber and dab torch, here’s how it goes:

Step 1: Torch & Nail

First, turn on the torch, and use the torch to heat the dab nail. Heating the nail until it's red hot and glowing will do the trick.

Step 2: Nail & Dome

The old school way of dabbing involves using a glass dome over the nail. If you have a titanium nail on hand, you should cool it for about ten seconds. If your nail is quartz, give it a good 45 seconds to cool properly. You don't want the temperature to be too scorchingly hot, or it will compromise the process and the overall results. The most popular nail to use today that does not require a dome is a quartz banger.

Step 3: Dab with Dabber

Apply the dab with your dabber directly onto the nail within the dome. Then, simply inhale slowly. In order to prevent wasting any oil, rotate the tip of the dabber throughout.

That's it! Congratulations, you're officially a dabber!

Frequently Asked Questions About Dab Rigs

What is a Dab Rig?

Just like a bong, a dab rig is a kind of glass water pipe. However, rather than heating and inhaling dry herbs, you're using oils, wax and concentrates. The process was named "dabbing" for a very simple reason - because you quite literally dab your product onto the heated nail.

Many consider this to be the preferable method of smoking, because dab rigs produce vapor rather than smoke. Obviously, we all know how toxic and carcinogen-heavy smoke is, which makes dabbing an inherently less dangerous method. Also, on a simpler note: dab rigs produce the very best flavor!

How do I choose the right dab rig?

The dab rig should be comfortable in your hand and easy to handle. The glass needs to be thick, durable and compatible with optional, add-on dabbing accessories to enhance the piece. Choose a style and color that suits your style. You can even find some dab rigs online that make exceptional table centerpieces!

How expensive is a dab rig?

Just like anything else you might buy there are several different price points when shopping for a new dab rib. Luckily here at Toker Supply we offer a wide range of dab rigs from cheap dab rigs to the most expensive dab rigs.

While you may be able to find some dab rigs under $50 we do not recommend those if you're looking for the best quality.
