Dabbing is an exciting and unique way to enjoy your favorite cannabis concentrates. However, knowing how to use a dab rig correctly is important for the best experience.
A good electric dab rig should have the following components: a dabber, a banger, and a carb cap. This setup can seem intimidating to someone who has never used one before.
How to Use an Electronic Dab Rig
To use an e-rig:
- Gather all your supplies and find a safe surface to set it on. This should be where it can’t easily tip over and should not contain flammable materials in case you accidentally knock over your dab rig.
- Ensure the rig is filled with water and your dabber and carb cap are ready.
- Ensure that the nails and electric unit are properly secured.
Generally speaking, a dab rig is a specialized type of water pipe designed to smoke dense concentrates through water vapor. Dabbing is becoming increasingly popular for cannabis connoisseurs because it delivers incredibly potent hits that will get you high.
The good news is that using an e-rig can be far easier than operating a traditional rig. That’s because e-rigs eliminate the need for a butane torch and allow you to heat your nail to the ideal temperature for a perfect hit every time.
While dabbing can be a great way to enjoy your favorite concentrates, keeping safety in mind is important. Dabbing requires high temperatures and open flames, making it a potentially dangerous activity. Luckily, there’s a new and safer alternative to traditional dabbing: an electric dab rig.
An e-rig is a device that uses electricity to heat the nail and vaporize concentrates. It’s the modern way to dab, becoming increasingly popular among enthusiasts and first-timers.
When using an e-rig, always follow the manufacturer’s instructions. This will help you get the most out of your device and ensure that you don’t overheat or damage your rig. Also, use a reliable thermometer to check the temperature settings regularly. This will help you to fine-tune your rig and find the perfect setting for your preferences. Lastly, store your rig in a cool and dry place when unused.
How to Clean an Electronic Dab Rig
One of the most important things you can do to keep your rig clean is to change the water frequently. Stagnant rig water can be a breeding ground for nasty pathogens like Strep and E coli, yeasts, and black mildew. And when inhaled, these things can lead to serious illness and even death.
The first step in cleaning an electronic dab rig is to remove the glass attachment from the base. This will give you more room to clean the atomizer cup, banger, and heating mechanism with a mixture of isopropyl alcohol and salt.
Once the rig is disassembled, fill a Tupperware container with enough isopropyl alcohol to cover all the parts of your rig. Add a tablespoon of coarse rock salt, shake, and soak for 24 hours. This solution will break down and disperse residue that has built up on your rig. You can clean your rig once the solution is soaked by rinsing it with fresh water.
The Best E-Rigs
The best e-rigs are designed to be easy to use, portable, and durable. It would help if you also looked for a good warranty and customer service from the company or seller.
It is also easy to clean, but always let the atomizer and other rig parts cool down before cleaning. Use cotton swabs soaked in isopropyl alcohol to wipe down the atomizer bowl, carb cap, and other device components. You can also use an ultrasonic cleaner to remove hard-to-reach spots from the rig.
