What is a Dab Rig?

Photo by Published June 00, 2017 Updated May 13, 2020

Dab rigs have gained a lot of popularity among those within the 710 culture. A dab rig also known as a concentrate pipe, oil rig, or simply a "rig" can be a bong or a bubbler depending upon the size and shape of the dab rig.  A bong can be adapted in most cases, for either cannabis flowers or concentrates with the correct attachments.  Some essential components are necessary for proper dab rig usage including your actual dab rig (bong or adaptable bubbler), dab nail (available in ceramic, glass and titanium), dab stick aka dabber, a butane torch and cannabis concentrates. 

Stoner Strategies has an excellent selection of various styles of smoking products for all types of smokers.  We have a large selection of high-quality scientific grade borosilicate glass dab rig pipes to choose from sure to fit any of your smoking needs.  I have, selflessly, volunteered myself to up my dabbing game and have been hard at work trying out all of the products provided here at Stoner Strategies to ensure that we only sell the best of the best dab rig products out there to provide to our loyal customers.  I personally suggest the small but eye-catching cyclone perc bubbler.  If you're missing any essential dab pieces we carry dab sticks as well as high quality 710 accessories like silicone dab containers. 

Never used a dab rig before?  You'll need a small butane torch to heat up your dab nail.  Please keep in mind that although we carry only the highest scientific grade borosilicate glass that can withstand extreme heat the heat from torches may cause your dab rig to crack so with that in mind keep your flame pointed away from your dab rig and any other flammable materials.  Prepare your concentrated legal wax, shatter, or oil just a dab will usually do for a newer 710 smoker. 

Heat the nail; as the nail reaches a glowing orange color remove the torch and grab your prepared dab of legal concentrates on your dab stick and put your mouth to the piece.  While holding your dab stick gently place the concentrates in the center of the dab nail and pull in to smoke.  If you are new to the dab world it is highly encouraged to start off with small doses of your concentrated legal herbs and build up your tolerance at a pace that is comfortable for you.  It is recommended to invest in one of our silicone dab mats or silicone dab containers for proper storage of your precious legal concentrated herbs. 

These basic tips should get you through your first dab experience and before you know it you'll have mastered your dab techniques. Shop Stoner Strategies for all your dabbing needs and be sure to come back to let us know in the comments how your first dabbing session went!  We would love to hear about them!
