What a Dab Rig is:
First of all, dab is the colloquial term for vaporized concentrates. To obtain the concentrates, different essential oils are extracted from plants then manufactured into a concentrated version. The concentrations can be essential oils, wax, shatter, budder, and other consistencies depending on the production process.
A dab rig is a filtration device made of special water pipes and specifically meant for consuming concentrates and waxes. Dab rigs have cooling and vaporizing techniques that give the users a smooth or strong hit. Dabbing is the process of using dab rigs where you place the concentrates against a highly heated surface on the rig then inhale the smoke using the pipes.
Choosing a Dab Rig
When purchasing a dab rig, look out for key features such as size, material, and base. Glass is believed to be the best in terms of purity and the cleanest flavor profile. Other materials such as ceramic, silicon, and acrylic are known to dilute the flavor profile. When it comes to glass, beware of poor quality. Borosilicate glass is the standard lab-grade glass capable of withstanding high heat and pressure, the two processes required when vaporizing concentrates in the dab rig.
Silicon dab rigs, on the other hand, are travel-friendly, non-breakable, portable, and pocket-friendly. They can also be frozen for additional vapor cooling.
Electric dab rigs do not require a butane torch to light the vapor. They also heat the concentrate to the correct temperatures; hence no need to keep checking whether you have the perfect temperatures. The electric dab rig is a great investment in terms of convenience and functionality.
Are Dab Rigs Legal?
A dab rig is a container, hence legal in most countries since what matters is the contents. However, some of the oils used in the container are illegal. It’s not the container but the content that could be illegal in your state.
There are many legal oils that can still provide a high and relaxed feeling that cannabis provides. These oils can be mixed, but you need to be careful to avoid overdosing, which can be fatal. Some of the herbs and herbal oils touted as great alternatives to CBD include Kava kava, valerian root, a combination of turmeric and black pepper oil, and coneflower.
Check out souvenir shops and shops that sell room accessories. You can also purchase one online. They are not only fairly priced but freely delivered in most cases. Always ensure there are no restrictions for use in your state to avoid your item being confiscated and a possible arrest and fines when you purchase one online.
If you are always looking to have fun, a dab rig is a perfect investment. Ensure you are using legal oils, the right container, and observe due diligence to avoid overdosing.
