Do you know the difference between Dab Rig and Dab Pen? Let us start with what they are and what they are used for. By the way, a dab is a slang name for a wax puff using either a Dab Rig or Pen.

Dab Rings and Dab Pens are used for vaporizing wax concentrates to bring about an effect of high to the user. In essence, wax is this marijuana product that is quickly coming up especially among the youth. Since wax looks and feels like any of the hundreds of brands of lip balm brands, it is easily carried in lip balm containers

Although a product of marijuana, wax is much more concentrated; so much so that a puff of wax gives a kick or high equivalent to smoking like twenty joints of marijuana! Imagine that.

Naturally, some dabbers like Dab Pens while others prefer Dab Rigs. Each carries its weight and each has its lighter side, but experienced dabbers will prefer to own both.

A Dab Rig

Dab Rigs are very popular as this set-up of glass apparatus that dabbers use to sit around and smoke wax. It has several compartments; a mouthpiece, a small dish called a nail for putting the wax in and water carrying container. A Dab Rig is easily available from most smoke shops and especially nyvapeshop.com.

Pros

  • . A Dab Rig is loud, but most dabbers prefer it as its kick is like a thunderstorm. One puff from a rig simply takes the dabber by storm and sends them where they want to go.
  • . Dabbing Nails of Rigs are made of non-melt materials like titanium, ceramic, quartz, and even glass.
  • . They do not rely on electricity, so even during a power outage or a blackout, dabbers are still on top of their game.
  • . Dab rings have percolators with thick glass for a more advanced hit
  • . They have good grips which make their handling is more efficient.
  • . The container is re-usable without the prospect of needing service or replacement soon.

Cons

  • . Dab Rigs are bulkier and cumbersome if they have to be carried around.
  • . They are louder than the Dab Pen but much more fun for their users

The Dab Pen

Like the Rig, Dab Pens do the job of vaporizing the wax. They are mostly self-contained with all their features parked together. They are smaller in size than the Rig and are easily portable. They come in varying sizes, colors, and costs. They contain heating chambers with in-built coils that when heated, in turn, heat the wax and vaporize it for the dabber to puff.

Pros

  • . They are smaller than the Dab Rig in size and are easily portable
  • . For those who need discretion, they are better if they have to be carried around
  • . They don’t need a blow-torch or smoke to vaporize the wax.
  • . They are quieter and less loud than the Dab Rig
  • . The container is reusable for a long time without needing any extra service.

Cons

  • . Dab Pens use electricity. Sadly, for them, in case of a blackout, thunderstorm, hurricane, a hailstorm knocking down the power-line, or anything that interferes with electricity, Dab Pen users have to cut short their need for a high.
  • . The kick-in of a Dab Pen puff is not quite as powerful as that of a Dab Rig. It’s lower in power and seasoned dabbers prefer a Dab Rig puff to a Dub Pen one.
  • . Although easier to carry around, dabbers prefer a hit in a comfortable sitting position as opposed to moving around.

Similarities

Both dabs are for use in vaporizing wax for a puff.

Both have a variety of features to provide for every taste.  They are also available at varied prices in varied locations and outlets. There are very affordable ones and very expensive ones, plus everything in-between.

Their heating areas have thick bottoms made from either ceramics, glass, aluminum, or quartz for a non-melt effect.

They both give a high quite unlike previous uses of marijuana.

The Verdict

People’s tastes vary, from those who want a portable dab to those who want something powerful. Some dabbers may prefer something beautiful and sleek while others go for invisible and discreet. Still, others want something loud and visible.

The bottom line is the reason for the dab equipment. If it is for a good, powerful hit-you-like-an-ox high, the Dab Rig wins this case hands down. Moreover, when it is for something all season, come rain shine or blackout, my money is still on the Dab Rig.

However, if you need something quiet, no smoke, and electrically charged, you could go for the Dab Pen. The ball is in your court.

Cannabis concentrates are perhaps the trickiest form you may come across. They are highly potent, and the consumption techniques are also complicated, whether you choose to smoke, vape, or dab. Still, using the right gear can make things a lot simpler for beginners, and you get better with practice and experience. The choice of equipment depends on several factors, so you need to consider them while taking your pick. Here are some helpful tips that you can follow while choosing the right gear for using concentrates.

Size and convenience 

You will want to choose your concentrate gear according to your skill level. For a beginner, the simplest is the best because it will be easy to handle and use. Handling the potency and managing dosages for cannabis concentrates may be hard enough for you. So you will want only the gear that is easy to use. Size also matters because larger pieces can be difficult to operate. Thankfully, there are lots of choices in bongs and bubblers, from large, table-top pieces to small, handheld ones.

Method of consumption

The next factor to consider is the method of consumption and the form of concentrate. When it comes to types of concentrates, you come across a lot, from wax to shatter, resin, rosin, oil, hash, and more. Consumption methods also vary, depending on your preference, and the equipment you use will differ accordingly. For beginners who want to learn how to smoke resin, a bowl gives you a good start. You can graduate to a bong or bubbler as you learn the ropes. Similarly, you will need a vaporizer for vaping a concentrate and a dab rig for dabbing it.  

Quality of smoke

The quality of smoke makes all the difference when it comes to experience, both for beginners as well as seasoned users. You will want cooler, smoother smoke that gets you high without irritating your throat or lungs. A bong with an ice catch is a good option as it helps in cooling the smoke before you inhale it. If you are more experienced, you can work with a nail and rig as it lets control the temperature for an optimal hit. Lower temperatures deliver a smoother vapor, while higher temperatures make it harder-hitting.

Durability

When you spend on smoking or dabbing gear, you will want it to last. Durability is another factor that needs attention when you buy it as a beginner. Look for ones made with high-quality material, even if it means that you have to spend a little extra. You need to be extra careful about glass gear because there are chances of dropping the bong when you do not have much experience of using it. Always stick to a reputed seller because they go the extra mile with quality and durability.

These factors will simplify your selection of the right equipment if you are just starting with concentrates. The best thing to do is to start with the basics. Gradually, you can move to more complex gear if you want to take your experience to the next level.
