Types of Dab Rigs

Types of Dab Rigs

Just like people, dab rigs come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. You may be wondering why you
should use dab rigs over other smoking methods, but there are many benefits to using this
smoking accessory. Not only will you get a stronger, smoother hit, but you also get to enjoy the
terpenes in your concentrates ensuring you enjoy your smoking experience.
What is a dab rig? A dab rig is a specialized type of bong or water pipe, also known as a
concentrate rig. These bongs are specifically designed to smoke dense concentrates via water
vapor. Rigs are typically made of glass, and the nail is made of quartz or titanium.
The modern-day dab pipe typically includes the glass piece, a nail, a dabber, a torch, and a carb

Glass Rigs

A glass dab rig is one of the most classic kinds of dab rigs you’ll find.
A dab rig is a water pipe that cools dab vapor before entering your lungs. It looks like a bong
except it will have a fitting for a nail instead of a bowl. Dab rigs come in all shapes and sizes, but
they are usually less than 1′ tall.
Dab rigs are easy to use, simply heat the nail until it begins to turn red. Allow the nail to cool for
30 to 45 seconds. Apply the dab tool directly inside the nail and inhale. Cation: be sure that the
nail has cooled first, or the hit will be hot and not so pleasant,

Perfect for dabbing on the go, Mini Rigs! Mini rigs are usually made of quality glass and can
become fun to start a mini dab rig collection.
Mini rigs made of borosilicate glass are better for those looking for a super potent, intoxicating
hit. These tend to be more intricate pieces with features like recyclers and perks that add extra
filtration and cool down the vapor further.
To use your dab rig, apply a butane torch and heat the nail or banger until it turns red. Wait 45
seconds (or more depending on the thickness of quartz) after you’ve removed the torch before
touching the bucket again.

Popular in the dabbing community is Puffco. Dubbed as a “Smart Rig,” the Puffco Peak is a
portable electronic vaporizer that is engineered for cannabis concentrate consumers who wish
to forgo the messy and time-consuming parts of the dabbing process.

To use your peak, click and hold the button for three seconds until it vibrates and the band light
turns white. Click once to bump the temperature up a level, all the way up to the highest
temperature (White Light). Double click to activate the heater and let it run a full cycle vapor at
lower temperatures is nice, flavorful, and potent.

Nectar Collectors

If you’re new to trying concentrates, a nectar collector can be a great way to familiarize yourself
with dabbing and avoid some of the complexity of operating a dab rig.
A type of portable dab rig used to vaporize cannabis concentrates. Nectar collectors have a
vertical design that looks like a straw. The body is made of glass or silicone, and the tip is made
of titanium or quartz, which is heated with a torch or electric power, and then used to inhale
Nectar collectors are simple to use. Instead of heating a Domeless dab nail, simply heat the
metal tip end at the other end of the nectar collector. Once heated it can be placed and
“dragged” over concentrates inside a dab container and simply inhaled.
