One of the first and most important things you’ll need to get started with dabbing is a good rig since that’s where you’ll be placing your nails, and your waxes or concentrates will be heating up. Although there are many types of oil rig on the market, here are some tips to help you make the most out of using them as you take your first steps into this new form of smoking! So, let us look at the top tips to make your dab rigs more amazing.
Use Gloves Always while using Dab rigs.
People using dab rigs for the first time may face problems with blisters, sores, and nausea. This can be avoided by wearing gloves while vaping. Gloves help to increase sensation and make vaporing easier. So, if you are facing such a problem, then wear gloves while using your dab rig. Also, it will protect your skin from harmful chemicals which are present in concentrates.
The concentrate oils are usually slimy. So, if you touch them without wearing gloves could pave the way for transferring bacteria from hands to oil. This will lead to contamination, and from here, all the health issues will arise.
Turn down the heat
Unlike dry herb vaporizers, dab rigs can get hot enough to burn your concentrates, which isn’t a big deal if you’re vaping CBD flower but is for anyone consuming THC. If you notice a burnt taste or experience mild discomfort after taking a hit off your rig, try turning down the heat on your nail. Nails can vary in temperature from 1000°F (450°C) to around 1200°F (650°C), but as a general rule of thumb: The higher and redder it gets, the hotter it is. And when it comes to nails, bigger doesn’t always mean better—shorter nails will be more forgiving on your dabbing technique than longer ones.
If you experienced bad dabbing, it is most likely because you are dabbing at a very high temperature. Dabbing at high temperatures could even reduce the flavor and smell. That means you are wasting the money.
Use dedicated oil rig
if you are going to invest in a dab rig, make sure that it is dedicated for use with your extract. You can find dab rigs that range from as little as $10 to over $100. It all depends on your budget and what you need it for. If you have an extra rig at home that’s just collecting dust, then, by all means, utilize it to enjoy more dabs! But if you don’t own a dab rig or don’t plan to buy one, I highly recommend buying one just for extracting your extracts. They will last longer since they aren’t used very often, but they also come with various percolators, which will produce bigger and better hits!
Most rigs are made with glass tubing or a bong, so be sure to find one that is easy to use and feels good in your hand. You can buy a rig from any smoke shop or online smoke shop for pretty cheap. Many websites offer free shipping as well if you spend over a certain amount. Always make sure that you get an appropriate-sized nail for your dab rig so that it doesn’t leak. Depending on what type of material you choose to purchase extract from will determine how big your nails need to be! Picking out your nail and rig is probably one of my favorite parts since they’ll last forever, and you can have a variety of extracts on hand!
Use banger or a quartz nail
There are many different types of rigs, and one of them is using a banger or a quartz nail. Both these have their pros and cons when it comes to dabbing. There are differences in appearance, price, heat retention, vapor quality, and ease of use. However, it all depends on your personal preference which you should use. You can go for either one depending on what exactly you are looking for, while using your dab rig or bong rig.
A banger is one of these. It’s a small bowl with a dab rig used to smoke concentrates. It can be made from either quartz or ceramic, and its shape is dome-like.
Utilize a carb cap
A carb cap can help cool and trap vapors on top of your concentrate, allowing you to take bigger hits. Carb caps are available in several different styles—dome caps, goon style, and even thumper style. Dome caps offer a flat surface for catching those sweet, sweet concentrates; goon-style caps have an offset design that’s perfect for flat-top nails (and easier to clean), and thumper carb caps are meant for use with domeless nails. Depending on how you plan to use your dab rig, several different carb cap options are available that will help you get a better rip every time!
Clean your dab rig regularly.
You have to make sure that you clean your dab rig regularly to use it easily. When using a dab rig, you must take care of it and be careful. If you don’t take care of your dab rig, it might break while using, or someone else may use and break your precious piece. You should also clean up after each use because cleaning up straight away will make each smoke fresh without any bad smell.
Update your dab rig whenever possible
First of all, there’s not really a bad time to buy new gear. (Except maybe when you can’t afford it.) But buying something new will always be more fun than using that same old rig. If you want to feel like a kid in a candy store every time you sit down for your next dab session, upgrading your gear as often as possible is worth considering. Not only will newer equipment offer up some real improvements in functionality and efficiency, but they might also offer up an exciting change of style from time to time too! As always, though, don’t bite off more than you can chew—you don’t want those credit card bills piling up before your next paycheck.
