Dab rigs are a special type of water pipe which has been designed for the purpose of smoking concentrate and oils.
Once you’ve learnt the basics of your wholesale dab rig, there are special methods which can be incorporated into your session. And once you get the hang of it, your overall experience will only get much more amazing.
Always Use Gloves
One of the most important things to remember is to always use a pair of gloves. This is simply due to the fact that oils are quite slimy and when your skin comes in contact with them, you can transfer bacteria to the oil. This goes on to contaminate the oil as well as even dilute it. So, be sure to use gloves when you’re ready to smoke.
Use A Dedicated Dab Rig
The attachment for your pipe can be used for the purpose of smoking concentrate oils. However, most times any residue that remains from dried herbs goes on to taint the natural strong flavor of your hit. So, it’s best to always have a dedicated dab rig so that you can properly enjoy your hit without the bad aftertaste that can come from residue.
Turn Down The Heat
If you’ve ever heard about bad or distasteful experiences, there had to be a distinct reason. So, if you’ve ever experienced chest discomfort or even unpleasant tastes, chances are you were dabbing at a higher temperature than recommended. Be sure to cool your dab nail after the initial heating process.
Whenever the nail becomes too hot, the concentrates begin to combust. This goes on to cause unpleasant inhalation processes. And extreme temperatures have been known to remove the relevant compounds which are responsible for the desired flavor that you purchased.
Use A Carb Cap
Simply put, a carb cap is a carburetor that you can use for your dab rig. This goes on to restrict the airflow leading to your nail. It also allows you to collect the last bit of oil to make your last hit one to truly remember. When you cap your nail, the airflow is then restricted; as such, your rig experiences low pressure which reduces your boiling temp creating a better tasting, thicker smoke.
Utilize A Quartz Nail Or Banger
If you’re seeking the best taste, it is advised that you use either a nail or a quartz banger. Either of these create a pure yet intense cleans taste when you use any of your desired concentrates. Additionally, bangers and quartz nails are quite durable when compared to that of glass nails. And the banger even extends protecting the rig from any heat which prevents cracks in the long run.
Clean Your Dab Rig Frequently
In order to get the most out of your rig, be sure to clean it on a regular basis. And with regular cleaning it will also be easier to each time you clean. So, when you have a squeaky-clean rig, your concentrates taste much better!
Upgrade Your Dab Rig
One of the easiest ways to have a truly amazing experience is to simply upgrade with a percolator. This device is also known as a sub chamber and it allows for the interaction of water and smoke. This then reduces the temperature ensuring a smoother yet cooler smoking experience.
