What is a Dab Rig?

A dab rig is a piece of equipment that allows you to smoke cannabis concentrates. A complete rig will need a few dab tools including:

  • Water Pipe: a glass piece that you will use to inhale the cannabis concentrate
  • Nail: this is the bowl of the pipe and it will be where you place the concentrate. 
  • Dabber: a piece of metal that allows you to scoop the concentrate and put it in the nail 

A dab rig is unique because it requires a torch instead of a typical lighter. Your equipment will need to be heated at a high temperature to ensure proper function and an enjoyable smoking experience.

Steps to Set Up Your Dab Rig

Setting up your dab rig is easy and can be done in a few simple steps!

  1. Fill the pipe with water
  2. Heat the nail until it is glowing red
  3. Allow the nail to cool for at least 10 seconds
  4. Scoop the desired amount of cannabis concentrate onto your dabber
  5. Place the concentrate into the heated nail until it is all evaporated
  6. Inhale
  7. Repeat as needed

Smoking with a dab rig provides an array of benefits for users. Cannabis concentrates offer higher THC levels than flower allowing you to use less product to achieve the same if not better results. Remember to start slowly as you are figuring out the right dose to avoid any potential unwanted side effects.
