How To Use A Dab Rig

December 18, 2022

For those who don’t know, a dab rig is a type of water pipe used to smoke cannabis concentrates. The rigs usually consist of a glass bong with a nail sticking out of the side. To use one, you heat the nail with a torch and then touch your concentrate to the hot nail. The vaporized oil immediately turns into thick white smoke that’s fun to inhale. Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to properly use a dab rig.

Smoking From A Dab Rig

  1. Gather your supplies: torch, concentrates, dab rig, and a quartz banger/carb cap.
  2. Heat the nail with the torch until it’s red hot. Wait for it to cool down slightly before moving on to the next step (it should be too hot to touch).
  3. Place the concentrates into the quartz banger or carb cap.
  4. Position the dab rig over a stable surface and inhale from the mouthpiece while touching your concentrate to the hot nail.
  5. Enjoy your hit! Let out an exhale after you’re done, and repeat as desired.

What Is A Dab Rig?

A dab rig is a type of water pipe used to smoke cannabis concentrates. It usually consists of a glass bong with a nail sticking out of the side, which is heated with a torch and then touched against the concentrate. The vaporized oil turns into thick white smoke that’s inhaled through the mouthpiece. Rigs come in all shapes and sizes, from small and simple to large and complex. The type of rig you choose will depend on your preferred smoking style, as well as the size of your budget. Regardless of what you choose, using a dab rig can offer an incredibly intense experience that’s sure to satisfy all levels of cannabis users.

Cleaning Your Dab Rig

After a few uses, your dab rig will accumulate residue from the concentrates you’ve been smoking. It’s important to clean your rig regularly in order to preserve its flavor and prevent any unhealthy buildup of material. To clean it, you’ll need isopropyl alcohol, salt, and a soft-bristled brush. You can also purchase dab bong cleaner online here.

  1. Mix 1 part isopropyl alcohol and 2 parts water in a bowl.
  2. Put the pieces of your rig into the mixture and let them soak for at least 30 minutes.
  3. Remove the pieces from the solution, then use a soft-bristled brush to scrub away any residue.
  4. Rinse the pieces thoroughly, then use salt and water to scrub away any remaining residue.
  5. Let the pieces dry completely before using them again.

Using a dab rig can provide an incredibly intense smoking experience, and with proper use and maintenance, it can last you many uses of enjoyment.
