A dab rig is an essential piece of equipment for a cannabis user. all kinds of rigs range from being super high-tech and expensive to being affordable and simple, but ultimately, the one you choose will depend on your unique preferences and needs.
Glass on glass
Glass on glass, or GOG for short, is a style of dab rig that uses a stationary water bowl, which is placed on top of another smaller bong. The stem runs down through the bowl and sits directly above it. This design offers several benefits, including ease of use and convenience. You don’t really have to worry about setting anything up before using it. Just pack the bowl and hit it.
Domeless Nail/E nail
A domeless nail or e-nail is essentially a piece of metal that has been bent into an upside-down L shape, with a flat surface for your cannabis concentrate to vaporize on. It also comes in a few different variations. Some of these models use electric coils to heat the nail, while others get their heat from an open flame.
A solo is a device that consists of a chamber at the bottom with a glass or other rod that extends upward from it (hence the name). Most one hitters are made from glass, but there are some metal versions out there as well. The design does away with the need for a water pipe or bong, and it’s so simple to use that you can literally smoke just about anywhere you can imagine. The only downside is that it is relatively small and not incredibly discreet.
A portable pipe is a device that’s kind of like a cigarette or cigar holder, but rather than tobacco or herbs, it holds your cannabis concentrate. The chamber is sealed off from the outside air, so you can take it with you and enjoy your dabs without anyone around you ever being any wiser. The quality of these devices can vary greatly from brand to brand and many don’t really live up to their claims, which is why it’s so important for you to shop around before committing to a certain model.
A bowl is just a small water pipe with a bowl in which you place your cannabis concentrate. Some bowls also have legs that can be used to support the bowl for sitting. The design is very simple, but it does come with its drawbacks as well. It isn’t really a discreet way of smoking, and it doesn’t offer much in terms of convenience.
A nail is almost the same thing as an e-nail, except instead of using coils to heat the nail, it uses a flame or battery heat instead. This design offers several advantages over similar devices, including efficiency and portability.
