High quality dab rigs are great alternatives to glass pipes and dry herb vaporizers. There is not much downside to using dab rigs, unless you bought a low quality dab rig with a poor nail design. In such a situation, you might end up wasting concentrate as the nail can get either too hot or might not heat up enough to burn the concentrate. Below are some of the best practices that you can follow while using dab rigs.

You need to be very careful not to burn yourself while using a dab rig, unless you are using an e-nail. If you are not paying enough attention, the flame from the torch can prove dangerous to you. You should never try to use the dab rig while moving around. Find a secure and safe place to sit down and focus on dabbing.

After finding a suitable place, the next thing is to get all the components ready. You will be able to buy all types of accessories for your dab rig, including in-line diffusers and showerhead percolators. However, these components can get sticky with oil reclaim or reburn. These components can be very difficult to clean and can clog up real fast. There are also multiple chamber rigs available in the market, but they can be very difficult to clean as well. Therefore, it will be a wiser idea to buy a simple dab rig for your use.

The next thing to ensure before you dab is that your torch has enough fuel. It can be very frustrating for you to realize that your torch is out of fuel while heating up the nail. In addition, have your concentrate handy. It will be good to apply the concentrate to the end of the dabber beforehand. You need to light the torch and heat up the nail by applying the flame for the required time.

Once the nail is heated properly, you can apply the concentrate to it using the dabber. The heat of the nail will make the concentrate evaporate immediately. Therefore, it is important to have your mouth on the mouthpiece of the rig, ready to inhale the vapor.

Note that it may take some time for the nail to cool down, depending on the type of dab nail that you use. So you should give the dab rig enough time to cool down before packing and storing it.
