To connoisseurs of the most medicinal form of cannabis, dab rigs are the pinnacle of horticultural achievement. These devices are used for vaporizing concentrates such as wax and shatter, which allows users to extract cannabinoids at a lower temperature than smoking does. With so many brands to choose from, what’s the best way for a newbie to pick out their setup? Let’s take a look:
In this blog post, we’ll help you find your perfect dab rig for artists and everyday consumers. We’ll offer different options that are available in both online and brick-and-mortar stores. We’ll also guide you on how to pick the best Custom dab rigs that will suit your needs.
At the start, as with all things, there is such a thing as a “best dab rig”. Dab rigs are in no way comparable to high-end vaporizers. When purchasing a dab rig, it’s essential to understand that you’re investing in an art form. Don’t buy one if you don’t know what makes a good piece of equipment art. The price tag on these gadgets is not just the price of quality glass and material; it’s also the value of the human experience put into creating or adapting it. In other words, please don’t buy a dab rig from an artist unless you want to support their work. And on the other hand, don’t buy one if you want a tool to consume cannabis.
Before we dive into the world of online and physical stores, it’s essential to do your research on what kind of dab rig is right for you. This will help eliminate any financial or emotional investment in something not suited to your needs.
The thickness of the glass is critical when selecting a dab rig because most residents have fragile walls or no walls at all. The thick glass allows the rig to be sturdy and hold heat, but too thick of glass will kill the taste of the burnt material. Imagine drinking coffee through a rolled-up newspaper; it doesn’t taste anything like what you’d get from a regular mug. So when selecting your desired thickness, pay attention to how thin or thick each rig is.
There are specific dab rigs that come with built-in percolators, diffusers, Ash Catchers, and recyclers. These options are often sold separately and attached to different bongs, such as straight tubes and bubble bongs.
In conclusion, be sure to research the different options out there before you do anything else. This will help you make an informed decision when buying your new dab rig.
