What you need to know about Dab Rigs & Setups

Dab rigs are another way to smoke weed. Cannabis concentrates are used with a dab rig instead of ground herb. Dabbing rigs are made with smaller chambers and percolators than a bong. Dab rigs come in various designs and styles, and dab accessories can vary depending on your preferred dab setup.

What are Dabs?

Dabs are cannabis concentrates made from the isolated cannabinoids and terpenes from cannabis. Dabs are also often referred to as wax, shatter, distillate, and diamonds. Dabs can come in a wide variety of consistencies and terpene profiles.

What is a Dab Rig?

A dab rig or oil rig pipe is made for use with concentrates rather than ground herb. Concentrates require less water filtration and are more flavorful when filtered through a smaller water pipe than a giant bong, so dab rigs tend to be smaller than bongs. Rigs are made to be fitted with quartz bangers that can be heated to vaporize concentrates.

Why use a wax rig? Does dabbing get you higher?

Dabbing is a more effective way of using cannabis than smoking or vaporizing dried cannabis flowers. Compared to dry flowers, concentrates are much more potent, with specific concentrates surpassing 80% or even 90% THC.

Point blank; dabs get you higher than smoking weed. Potency is the main attraction for many people to try dabs, but there are many reasons why dabs are considered superior to the traditional ground herb.

Taste is a huge reason why people enjoy dabbing. The terpene concentration in dabs is highly flavorful, and most first-time dabbers experience an explosion of cannabinoid flavors along with the significant upgrade in potency.

It's also important to note that dabbing does not combust the material placed into the banger when done correctly. As dabs melt, the THC and terpenes vaporize. Dabbing is a much purer form of inhalation than combustion, which has tons of particulate and carbons in it that you don't want to breathe.

Depending on your usage levels, dabs can last a lot longer than dried cannabis because of the smaller amount of dabs required to get you blazed.

What are the best Dab Rigs?

Choosing the best dab rig is all about your specific preferences. There is no one best dab rig in the world, but there are many dab rigs out there that are perfect for you, depending on your tastes and particular preferences.

One of the best rigs to start dabbing with is a banger hanger. A small dab rig, banger hanger, or mini rig is a good oil rig to begin your collection. A banger hanger-style rig is elevated by the quality of the quartz banger connected to it. 

Quartz bangers are dab nails if you still happen to use that phrase. Quartz or ceramic is the most preferred dab heating element, but titanium is still used for some setups like Mininails and other e-nails. 

The most important things to consider about a quartz banger are the joint size of your dab rig and the angle the banger will hang. Most dab rigs feature a female joint that takes either a 14 millimeter or 10-millimeter banger.

The next most important aspect of a quartz banger for a dab rig is the angle it hangs from the rig. Most will be a straight 90-degree bend, but some rigs have a 45-degree angle.

Think about where you will be using your wax rig. You may be moving your glass rig often, or it may sit at home on your desk to be used reliably every day. We offer dab rigs made for transport and large, elaborate rigs that are champions of design and functionality. Color and style matter; this is your rig, you should be proud of it. You'll find just the dab rig setup you want in our curated collection.

What are the different types of Dab Rigs?

Several dab rigs range from the basic banger hanger to the complex recyclers with multiple percolation tubes.

Dab Straws 

Also often referred to as Nectar Collectors, dab straws are the most straightforward glass pipe you can use to dab. A straight glass piece with a mouthpiece and narrow tip that is heated and placed into dabs to get a hit.

E-Rigs 

Electronic dab rigs do all the work for you. Wondrous inventions like the Puffco Peak are fine-tuned to reach the ideal temperature and vaporize your dabs with mechanical precision. 

Recycler Dab Rigs 

Often seen as the pinnacle of modern dab design, recycler rigs are complex and impressive. Recycler rigs have a unique percolation system that keeps water constantly moving to create never-ending percolation.

Oil Rigs with Fixed Downstems 

A fixed downstem rig is more durable because of the anchored percolation in the bottom chamber of the rig. These rigs tend to have a lower profile and basic design and are called banger hangers.

Wax Rigs with Percs

Filtration is less of an issue with dabbing, but if you take large dabs or dabs often, then a rig with good percolation is best. Percolator dab rigs cool down the vapor and filter it for a smoother hit.

Silicone Dab Rigs 

These dab rigs are made with durability and versatility in mind. Silicone rigs can be dropped, folded, heated, and are available in many colors.

Accessories and Tools Needed to Dab

Your dab setup can be elegant or as complex as you like your session to be. Some people want to create intricate dab stations that are always ready to go.

At the very minimum, you will want a dab rig, a torch, and a banger. But if you're going to get a solid dab setup, you can also include dab tools, a dab mat, and a cotton swab holder.

Dab Nails and Tools

Dab tools come in a variety of styles and can be made of metal or glass. These tools help you pick up a portion of dabs and place them in the banger.

Dab Torches

Dab torches heat your dab nail to a temperature capable of vaporizing concentrates. Torches have adjustable flames and refillable butane tanks.

Quartz Bangers

A quality quartz banger will make a world of difference in the heating and vaporization process. Some quartz nails have beveled edges so that carb caps are more stable when placed in them.

Carb Caps

There are many types of carb caps that increase the airflow and temperature of your banger to make vaporization smoother and more effective. Directional airflow carb caps can help push dabs around the quartz bucket to ensure that every last drop is vaporized.

Dab Rig Bags

A hardshell case or soft case will extend the life of your dab rig and allow you to take it on adventures. Some dab rig bags have additional storage for torches and dab tools, and some hardshell cases are modular and can be customized to your needs.

Dab Storage

Most dabs come in a container, but you may often not want to travel around with your whole stash. Dab storage cases let you portion out your dabs ahead of time or keep a variety on hand.

Dab Rig Cleaning

Keeping your dab rig clean and the water fresh is essential to having a pleasurable session. Cleaners remove the layers of stuck-on dab resins that can build up inside the joints and percolators of your pipe. Some dab rig cleaners are all-natural, while others are solvent-based.

Iso Swab Jars

A jar of isopropyl alcohol and some cotton swabs are handy to keep near your dab rig to keep the banger clean. An Iso swab jar will guarantee you always have a clean banger.
