Step 1: Gather Your Materials
To use a dab rig, you'll need a few things: a dab rig, a nail, a dabber, a torch, and some concentrates (wax or shatter).
Step 2: Prepare Your Rig
Fill the dab rig with water. The water should cover the percolator holes but not fill the entire rig. Then, attach the nail to the downstem of your rig.
Step 3: Heat the Nail
Use the torch to heat the nail. Heat the nail until it glows red-hot, then let it cool for a few seconds before taking your hit.
Step 4: Load Your Dab
Using your dabber tool, take a small amount of concentrate and place it onto the heated nail. Be careful not to touch the nail with the dabber, as it will be extremely hot.
Step 5: Inhale
Once the dab is loaded, use the mouthpiece to inhale the vapor. Take a slow, steady hit to ensure that you get the full flavor and effect of the concentrate.
Step 6: Clean Up
After you've finished your hit, use a q-tip to clean the nail while it's still warm. This will help prevent build-up and ensure that your next hit is as smooth as the first.
Step 7: Repeat
Repeat the process until you're satisfied with your high or run out of concentrates. Remember to take it slow and start with a small amount of dab, as it can be more potent than smoking flower.
And that's it! With these steps, you'll be able to use a dab rig like a pro. Happy dabbing!
