The Dabbing: the best utensil to dabber, the Dag Rigs
Dabbing is not a recent discovery. Some people used to heat up, two butter knives on the fire… Then they placed scraped resin on the knives, until the heat produced steam to inhale… Fortunately, today we prefer to dab the concentrates. And, the market is changing rapidly, every two days a new tool, a new technique or technology seems to emerge… There are several candidates for the best dabbing devices in 2018. The best dab rig, will depend on personal preferences , concentrates used, opinions and individual budget.
The dab rig, the main dabbing accessory
The necessary equipment for dabbing are: a rig / bang / skillet, a blowtorch, a nail (or nail) and a stick (or wand). The (dab) rig is the main accessory used for dabbing. A butane torch (held in hand) is used to heat the nail; the nail holds in the (dab) rig and melts the concentrate… Then the wand diffuses the concentrate and presses it against the nail. There you go, get ready for a good dab, and bring yourself a few tips beforehand. Dabbing involves the use of a concentrate such as wax (wax) or shards (shatter) and requires this special equipment.
The different concentrates of dabbing
But with so many types of waxes, oils, chips and other forms of concentrates or extractions of cannabis on the market, it is difficult to find the right dab rig. To do this, The Dab Lab lists some of the most common concentrates and recommended uses. To summarize, a dabber will have to get used to forms of extractions, more or less rare:
Sap / Distillate
This distilled cannabis oil is usually very low in viscosity. This makes it liquid and viscous, especially when artificial terpenes are added to aromatize.
Pull and Snap / Taffy
As the name suggests, Pull and Snap, or Taffy, often looks a lot like Shatter, but due to room temperature or some other step in processing cannabis oil, it does not break and becomes very stringy, especially if you're not careful… Instead, just use your dabbing tool to measure the size of the dab you want, then press down and quickly; and suddenly pull the dab away ...
Sugar Wax / Sauce
This hybrid consistency of runny oil and large THC crystals can be a bit of a challenge for yourself to dose. Finally if you don't have the right tool for dabbing. Since this type of cannabis oil is designed to be a terpene and flavor rich experience, you will need to dab on a low heat.
Shatter (Shattered Shards)
The Shatter can be very handy. You can cut the ideal dose, then stab and dabber!
Wax (wax) / Crumble
Crumble or Wax is a much drier form of dabs. Super popular until the Shatter era, the Crumble is now making a comeback for its ease of use. But also with its ability to capture and deliver the essence of the strain used to make the oil. Sometimes when it's too dry or too crumbly, you have to mash up smaller pieces in order to get a respectable dab.
With lab tests that often come up between 99,5% and 99,9% pure THC, this crystalline form of concentrated cannabis is no joke. However, that high THC level usually comes with a high price tag, so you don't want to waste a single grain of this sweet tasting hash.
This is the new fashion among concentrate lovers. We are not entirely sure about the manufacturing process for these "precious stones". But, this type of concentrate is rock hard candy and is sometimes submerged in extra dull sap oil. Towards the end of the extraction process, the oil undergoes a separation of THC (diamond) and Terps (sap oil). It is an exceptional form of concentrate!
Dab rigs for regular strikes ...
To dab all of these concentrates, you need to determine the quality of a dabbing machine. So, you have to see what type of air path it is, the glass it is made of, the design of the nail and the percolator. In addition, the airpath is responsible for the feel and the taste. And, no matter the size of the bong, the routing must be narrow and tight ...
The glass the bong is made of must be durable and must withstand high temperatures. However, the last thing you want is for your bong to shatter from the heat… which can cause injury, and waste of money… Thus, high quality glass will not compromise the flavor of your vape. This by collecting the residue after each application.
The type of nail with which a dab rig is delivered is compatible; it helps to access a good experience, or you will break it… The nail has a direct impact on the strength, smoothness and flavor of the strike (dab). The nail is usually made of glass, quartz, titanium or ceramic.
Finally, the percolator is responsible for filtering the water. This will cool and hydrate the vapor just before it is inhaled into the lungs. The best percolators will have the ability to produce finer bubbles. These improve steam hydration. However, there are many types of percolators; but it is all of these elements that determine the effectiveness of the design of a good dab rig. In 2018, we mainly find the following:
Grav Labs 7 "Two-Layer Circuit
The smoke is softened and cooled by the waterjet percolator as it rushes around the two layers, creating a small vortex. The two-layer filtration system is created by stacking two chambers.
This allows the water to circulate continuously while it is being smoked. This strongly filters the smoke, keeping it fresh all the time. This dab rig is made of glass and has a borosilicate tube which allows daily use thanks to its high tolerance to heat. The mouthpiece is flared is attached to a curved elbow.
This is another example of a dab rig, but which might surprise you with its small size ... Following the classic style, the Jade East has a straight tube (with a flared mouthpiece) which opens into a large water chamber . It is constructed with an airtight design, which can increase the flavor and hits… Its design helps sending the vapor directly to your lungs to keep its strength.
Thanks to its long and narrow neck, the vapor has time to cool before reaching the lungs. The percolator properly hydrates and filters every impact… This is an ideal dab rig for travel.
Nexus Nano Puck Rig
The Nexus Nano Puck Rig is one of a long line of popular dabbing rigs, especially in Southern California. Each device is hand blown and sandblasted for optimal results. This also means that the measurements may vary slightly… The bong is made with German Schott Glass 5mm thick. Note that the bent neck offers the user a good distance when dabbing (avoiding oral overheating…). This portable dag rig is constructed with a four hole, diffuse, fixed rod percolator.
The Hyer Big-E is one of the top of the line dabbing machines to be found on the market. It is very different from other dab rigs. Because it does not require the use of a torch. So, attach a flat bottom glass bong, and it will reach optimal temperatures in 90 seconds. Each session can be customized at a temperature between 320 and 852 degrees for ideal potency and flavor.
The 30 watt heating element is made of ceramic; it comes with quartz glass nails. Combustion free, the heating element delivers rich, creamy flavors with every dab. Use does not leave solid residues. This facilitates cleaning and provides fresher strokes ...
Snoop Dogg Pounds Spaceship
Snoop Dogg Pounds is another well known line. With a height of 15 cm, this winch with dabs offers a tight air path. Which gives more flavor, and powerful hits. In addition, it is ideally used for waxes.
Snoop Dogg Pounds is borosilicate. Which gives it a thick build. In addition, it contains a mouthpiece (nozzle) and a curved neck for easier use. The percolator is equipped with mesh slots whose role is to finely diffuse the smoke. In addition, it also offers the user less effort to inhale when dabbing deeper. The whole is made of pure quartz, which helps to preserve all the flavor of the concentrates.
Dab Rigs vs Vape Pen
If you are looking for a solution different from traditional smoke, consider investing in a high quality dabbing machine. The vapor they produce makes them similar to that of vape pensbut you will obviously get a more powerful shot. In addition, these dab rigs are similar to bongs in many ways, but they offer you a much cleaner experience.
Over the past two years, a growing number of scientific studies have demonstrated the benefits of medical cannabis, especially cannabinoids like THC and CBD. While the process of smoking dry herbs through joints, bongs etc. is still popular, more and more people are now looking for even better ways to enjoy the plant. However, vaporization is now the big revolution, but dabbing is not far behind ...
Concentrated vaporizers are ideal for those looking to enjoy their concentrates, oils and waxes wherever they go.
