CBD is becoming even more popular now than it has ever been before, and many enthusiasts are trying various modes to use CBD.

One of the most common ways is through dabbing. If this is your preferred mode of using CBD, you may find that finding a rig to use can be overwhelming. Because of their popularity, dispensaries have so many different types of dab rigs to choose from—hence the need for you to learn how to narrow down which rig to use based on the type you prefer. That way, you can make dabbing an even more enjoyable experience, because you’re comfortable with the tool you’re using.

This article gives you everything you need to know about dabbing, as well as the best dab rigs you can use.

A Brief Background on Dabbing

Before touching on the types of dab rigs, it’s important to first touch on what dabbing is, especially if you’re still a beginner—you may not know much about this mode of using CBD.

Here, the person is essentially dabbing a form of CBD concentrate. This is so the individual can inhale the vaporized CBD through a temperature-specific heating method. Because this is a more concentrated form of CBD—or really any kind of substance that you can dab—any desired effects tend to occur more quickly and more potently.

The Different Types of Dab Rigs

There are many different types of dabbing equipment, ranging from basic to pretty complex. Some examples are:

1. The Everyday Dab Rig

As its name suggests, this is the standard kind of dab rig and is perfect for everyday use. So, if you’re one to use CBD daily, then this option is the best for you.

This type of dab rig is characterized as resembling a bong, but only longer, and with a glass piece. Its height is around 7–9 inches and comes with its own water filtration design—this is in place so you can have smoother and cleaner CBD hits.

Because this is the standard type and most basic, it’s also the perfect option for those of you who are still beginners.

2. Vaporizers

Another very basic and common type of dab rig are vaporizers. This is one of the fastest ways to take in CBD, so its effects can settle in right away. Two of the most well-loved types of vaporizers are:

  • Portable Vaporizers. The most common type is the portable vaporizer, which is small, easy to carry and use. It also comes with different power options, including battery and electric options. The downside is that it is harder to heat up coils and it takes longer to heat up.
  • Desktop Vaporizers. This is another common type of vaporizer because of their ease of use and convenience. Desktop vaporizers can carry as large as two liters and have a larger base, making them ideal for placement on a table or counter top.

 

3. Glass Dab Rig

This type is also what’s known as the traditional dab rig. These are made of borosilicate, a type of glass that’s heat-resistant and stronger than other kinds of glass—that way, it can withstand even high temperatures of dabbing.

Glass dab rigs are perfect for the following:

  • If you don’t mind having to do a thorough cleaning once in a while, as this is more complicated to clean than other rigs;
  • If you’ve just started with dabbing;
  • If you prefer to have a wide range of temperature;
  • If you want a sturdy and versatile rig;
  • If you want to preserve the flavor of CBD concentrates.

Glass dab rigs are also well-favored, because of advantages like:

  • Ease to assembly;
  • Wide variety;
  • Durability, so you get value for your money.

4. E-Rig

An e-rig is the type of dab rig that’s perfect for those of you who are intimidated with using a lighter for their concentrates. Like e-cigarettes, this is a small, battery-operated device that takes away the need for a lighter. All you have to do is push a button, and then the tab comes out for you to inhale and exhale. The only disadvantage to this type of rig is that it produces smaller hits as compared to other types.

Conclusion

Each of these different types of dab rigs have their own unique features that make them excellent choices for anyone. When you break down each of their features, you’ll find that there’s really no single dab rig that’s better than the other—it all just really depends on your needs and wants. You have to go through each of their pros and cons, and weigh it all for you. With this list, you can now head off to your trusted dispensary, and start shopping!
