There are a lot of things to look forward to as we head towards the end of the year. Family gatherings, delicious food, and snowy weather are all part of what makes these months so great.
Before you get too busy with family responsibilities, now is a nice time to treat yourself to the upgrade you’ve been wanting as far as your preferred weed consumption methods. Sure, the joint is always going to be a classic and one of your go to’s but the cold weather ahead makes an indoor rig sound more appealing.
Up until now, bongs were the big trend and the thing that every stoner wanted to get their hands on. Now dab rigs have become very popular among stoners and the new cannaseurs for their potent and powerful hits.
So, if you’ve been smoking for a while you probably wear your weed tolerance like a heavy leather jacket. It’s time to get through with something that delivers that punch you need after a long day on the site.
So what do you look for when you’re buying a dab rig? The Shape? The size of the dab rig?
Dab Rig Sizing
Picking a dab rig might feel a little stressful if you’ve never had any experience. The last thing you want to do is spend money on something that sends you into another realm without wanting to go there in the first place.
Maybe you’re thinking that it’s time to move on to “bigger and better things.” Naturally, you’d think that the bigger dab rig is the better dab rig.
But if you’re not a seasoned cannaseur, a monster-sized rig might just put you out for the night. So the biggest dab rig isn’t the best for a beginner just like the biggest bong isn’t recommended to newbies.
The rule is true for dab rigs as it is for smoking any kind of marijuana. Take a hit and then take a break and see how you feel. Then after a while give it a little bit longer because sometimes it takes a second and then hits you like a brick wall. Oops you’re too high!
Anyways, if you’re a beginner dabber your best bet is to go with something that is smaller and more friendly until you get a hang of a bigger size.
To make it easier for you, we’ll separate our dab rig options into two categories.
- Pocket-Sized Dab Rigs
- Travel-Sized Dab Rigs
Pocket-Sized Dab Rigs
Now when it comes to pocket-sized dab rigs we’re talking about oil rigs that are small. Probably not the smallest you will see, but almost small enough to fit inside your pockets.
The first rig you want to check out is from MJArsenal and features a recycler design. It stands at 5” tall and includes a quartz banger. Introducing the Claude mini dab rig made from durable and reliable borosilicate glass.
If you’re new to dabs, set aside $49.99 and get the solution to your problem: you need more fire power to get to space. Named after a Roman inventor, the Claude rig provides a smooth experience packed with flavor so you can stay indoors this winter.
Next is another mini rig standing at a little over 5” tall with a base connected percolator to maximize the water diffusion. This leaves you with big clouds and pure, smooth vapor every session. At only $49.99, this dab rig includes a quartz banger for low-temp dabbing and is made from borosilicate glass for durability and easy-cleaning.
It also has a neat feature called a built-in reclaim catcher to prevent spills and clogging in your dab rig. Another reason to buy a pocket-sized dab rig!
Coming in at #3 is the Jig Mini dab rig standing at 6” tall. This rig is a step above the other rigs we’ve mentioned so far simply because of its bigger size. This one is going to take a champ!
Made from handcrafted 100% borosilicate glass, the Jig is a mini rig with features every dabber needs. A quartz banger, an affixed storage jar to keep your oils close, and a rear mounted down stem to prevent spills if you knock over your pipe.
If you already own a dab rig and want to upgrade to something different, this oil rig is a great option. Featuring an umbrella percolator that diffuses your concentrate vapor through water for the coolest smooth hits, the Grav Clear Umbrella Perc Rig is a reliable piece to have in your kit.
This rig is a little pricey at $99.99 but includes a 14 mm Grav Quartz nail allowing you to enjoy the benefits of low-temperature dabbing. This rig is hard to pass up on once you enjoy your first hit this pocket-sized rig.
Travel-Sized Dab Rigs
Our next size category is the next step in the dab rig ladder, we’re talking about dab rigs that are a big step away from the mini dab rigs in our list above. They’re bigger than the mini rigs we’ve listed and pack a bigger punch.
These are the perfect sized to deliver larger hits when you’re on the go whether you’re at the beach house with your close buddies or in the close cabin corners with your partner. There’s always enough room for these travel sized rigs.
Last on our rig size list is the electronic smart rig, the Puffco Peak. The electronic dab rig device offers convenience and efficiency when it comes to delivering potent hits during every session.
This travel-sized dab rig has 4 different heat settings to crank up the power from session to session. And when you pre-heating is done (that’s right pre-heating) you rig will vibrate to let you know it’s time to take a hit.
Now for sale at $339.99, the dabber enthusiast in you can elevate your dabbing experience in different styles and colors including a Puffco Peak Smart Rig in Neon, Medusa, and the limited-edition Sunset Lightning.
