In today’s article, we are going to talk about the top 5 equipment that you need for a great dabbing experience. Let’s get right into it!
What is Dabbing?
First of all, people may wonder what does Dabbing mean? Dabs are highly concentrated forms of cannabis that come in an array of products depending on their consistency like wax, shatter, honeycomb, butane hash oil, etc. They are also one of the most potent forms of concentrates available in markets and can contain up to 80 to 90 % THC. An interesting thing that the extraction process can be specifically targeted to extract unique cannabinoids in cannabis alone. What is a dab? A dab is manufactured by passing a gas like CO2 or Butane via a tube filled with cannabis flowers or plants. The low temperatures of the liquid gas crystallized leaving behind a mixture of Resin and Butane. The liquified being volatile in nature will evaporate away leaving behind a powerful concentrate product. There are also other types of extraction method like CO2, closed loop, open blasting, and subcritical extraction.
How can you consume a Dab?
Dabs can be consumed in many ways including both traditional and other fairly creative methods. Dab rigs have been the most well known devices used for Dabbing. The concentrate is applied to the dab tool, the nail is then heated red with the help of a blowtorch and dabbed to the wand producing vapors that are inhaled. Similar to dab rigs and electronic nail is connected to a power supply outlet replacing the use of a blowtorch that can be dangerous for your health. This method also provides an excellent taste as optimum heating temperatures do not combust the product. The concentrate can also be directly put on a porous stone that fits in a bowl. Healthstones can be then heated using again the help of a blowtorch.
A Dab rig
For a perfect dabbing experience a dab rig is essential. There is no way to dab without a dab rig, so this is why it’s so important to have one. But basically, what is a dab rig? A dab rig is a pipe that has been designed for vaporizing cannabis concentrates, these dab rigs are sometimes referred to as an oil rig, vapor rig, and concentrate pipe. A dab rig works in a very similar way that a bong does. A dab rig filters concentrate vapor through the water at the base. They are usually made from glass pipes which are connected to a nail or a banger. After many tries, using a dab rig will become easy and efficient, the key things are to use a blowtorch to heat the nail, then place the dab concentrate in the nail, after this inhale the resulting vapor. When buying a dab rig, the most important things are to look for one that has a great water volume, it’s portable and durable.
In the current market, there are two different types of nails. These are the domeless titanium nails and quartz nails (they are also called bangers). Watch out for borosilicate glass nails, since they break very easily and can shutter under heat. Titanium nails are a titanium composite known for its durability. If you’re looking for dabbing long term, then you should definitely choose the titanium nails, since they last quite long. Also, these nails are non-toxic when heated, they are extremely resistant to corrosion and they never break. Titanium nails are heating up very quickly when using a blowtorch, and they maintain the heat for longer periods of time. Quartz dab nails provide all of the benefits of glass, but they break very rarely. People love quartz dabs so much since they heat up under 5 seconds, and they offer an unaltered flavor to the wax concentrate which is not found in other options.
A big shot of blazer torch
People with a lot of experience said that the best blowtorch for dabbing is the big shot blazer torch. It heats up the nail in a couple seconds depending on the nail. This torch has been handcrafted in Japan since 1985. The big shot blazer torch features a brass anti-flame ignition assembly housed in a Japanese stainless steel nozzle. A nylon resin surrounds the large fuel tank and provides a smooth non-slip grip. This torch is refillable, and it has a brass frame nozzle. Gladly, this torch is anti-flare and it’s not dangerous at all.
You probably have never heard of Terp spinners, and you may wonder what are they exactly? Well, Terp spinners, or dab pearls, are small glass or quartz balls that can be added to the quartz banger to spin around and improve the vaporization of concentrates. They will help you to achieve the best low temperature dabs. But why do you need low temperature dabs? Low temperature dabs are so much better than high temperature dabs. Low temperature dabs preserve the delicious terpenes and they give a better dabbing experience overall.
For the last one we picked a temperature thermometer. If you would like to have the perfect dabbing experience then you will have to experiment with the temperatures and a thermometer comes handy in this case. A medium temperature for dabbing is around 700 F, but you should try to lower it or raise then see what’s the ideal temperature for you. The Dab Rite is the top of the line temperature thermometer for an excellent dabbing experience.
