This Is How to Use a Dab Rig the Correct Way


Did you know that cannabis is legal in 15 states in the United States plus Washington D.C.? If you are joining the millions of American adults that are using cannabis and are trying to figure out how to use a dab rig the right way, we are here to help.

Keep reading to learn how to get the most out of your dab rig.

Step 1

First, you will heat the nail of the dab rig with a torch. If you are using a banger or a quartz nail and this is your first time, heat it up until it turns red. When it turns red it means that all the small particles are burned off and this will allow you to start off with the hottest possible surface.

For those using an e-nail then you will use the interface to put the temperature that you want and then wait until the divice heats up the nail for you.

Step 2

Once the nail is hot give it a bit to cool down to avoid scorching your dab. Depending on how thick your nail or banger is will determine how long you want to wait for it to cool down. The target temperature to get the most flavor out of your concentrate is around 300-450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Normally it takes around 30-60 seconds for the nail to cool down. For those using an e-nail, there is no need to wait for it to get cool.

Step 3

Next, you will put your concentrate on the nail’s surface and slowly inhale the vapor. A dab will require a slow and long inhale, unlike a typical bong hit. The reason you want to take your time is that the majority of the concentrate does not vaporize right away.

Step 4

While you are inhaling you might want to place a carb cap on the banger or on the nail. This cap will act like an oven and will trap all of the heat inside the nail. Trapping the heat, in turn, will help you get the most out of your dabbing experience.

Once you are ready to clear all of the vapor out of the dab rig, lift the carb cap. Make sure that you exhale the vapor you inhaled right away.

Step 5

Last but not least, you want to give your nail a good cleaning. The last thing you want is for the residue to build up and change the flavor of your cannabis. Give the nail some time to cool down before you wipe it clean with a cotton swab.
