What is a Rig?

A dab rig, also referred to as a concentrate rig or oil rig, is a specialized type of water pipe that is specifically designed for dabbing concentrated tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). Unlike traditional smoking accessories like glass pipes and water pipes, dab rigs are equipped with a specialized nail made from materials such as quartz, titanium, or ceramic. (1) The nail is heated using a butane torch until it reaches the desired temperature, and then the dab is placed onto the nail and vaporized. The resulting vapor is then inhaled through the mouthpiece of the rig.

Dab Rig Artisans

The art of glass blowing has had a significant impact on the development of dab rigs. Glass blowers have created intricate and unique designs, often incorporating vibrant colors and patterns into their creations. These pieces are not only functional but also serve as beautiful works of art.

How Does THC Affect the Body?

The endocannabinoid system is a complex network of receptors, enzymes, and molecules that help regulate many bodily functions, including mood, appetite, sleep, and pain. Dabbing is an incredibly effective way of getting the euphoric feeling you want from your cannabis product as quickly as possible. As soon as you inhale, the THC in the dab acts on cannabinoid receptors in the endocannabinoid system. It then activates neurons in the body’s reward system, which release a flood of dopamine. (2)

Let’s Talk Concentrates

Cannabis concentrates are highly potent extracts derived from the cannabis plant. These concentrated forms of cannabis come in various forms and are often preferred by individuals looking for stronger and faster-acting effects compared to traditional methods of consumption. 


This type of concentrate is known for its glass-like consistency and high potency. It can be broken into smaller pieces and added to your dab rig for a powerful experience.


Wax is a softer, more malleable concentrate that is easy to work with. It can be used in small amounts for a less intense high or in larger amounts for a stronger effect.


Budder has a smooth, creamy texture and is often considered one of the easiest concentrates to work with. It can provide a balanced, long-lasting high.

Live Resin

This type of concentrate is made from fresh cannabis plants that have been flash-frozen and then processed. It has a strong, flavorful aroma and provides a potent high.


Rosin is a solvent-free concentrate that is made by applying heat and pressure to cannabis flowers. It has a clean taste and can be used in small amounts for a subtle high or in larger amounts for a more intense experience.
