Some users may not like carrying an extra piece of equipment around. Nexus Nano Puck Rig Portable rig with a nice ‘puck’ design. The vapor is a little on the hot side with a certain harshness to the hits.
If you are looking for an alternative to smoking weed, consider investing in a high-quality dab rig. The vapor they produce makes them similar to vape pens but you should get more powerful hits. They are similar to bongs in many ways but provide you with a cleaner experience. Bong hits involve smoking the plant whereas dab rigs use concentrates which are purer and don’t require as much filtration. Percolation is responsible for stacking those wonderful milky white clouds you see in a rig’s chamber and it also cools the vapor before it hits the throat and lungs. Once you find a high-quality rig, you shouldn’t need to buy another one. If you purchase any one of the 10 dab rigs we’ve reviewed above, it should provide you with years of happy dabbing. Finally, please remember that weed concentrates are STRONG so use them responsibly. This article was made possible thanks to my friends over at Vaporizers Direct.
Having concentrates but nothing to smoke it out of is such a bummer. Traditionally, wax and shatter are smoked out of a dab rig. Unfortunately, these can get kinda pricey – especially for someone who doesn’t smoke concentrates that often. I put together a list of 5 good ways to smoke wax or shatter without a rig. Additionally, I included 3 bad ways to smoke without a rig at the end. If you have any additional tips please let me and everyone else know in the comment section at the bottom of the page. This is for sure the easiest way to go about smoking concentrates without a rig. Load your bowl up like normal then put your shatter or wax on top of the herb. You can smoke it like you normally would and it’ll get you plenty high. Once it starts smoking it doesn’t extinguish itself like it normally would so it’s better to keep hitting it so you don’t lose as much smoke to the air. You don’t get the taste of just the wax which some people prefer. You’re always going to get a taste of herb with your concentrates. Tips: If your concentrates are a bit unstable (i.e. melted or sticky) put it in the freezer for 10 minutes or so. It will harden it enough for you to place it in your bowl. When first starting hit the bowl slowly and don’t bring the lighter too close. Ideally, you want to melt the concentrates into the rest of the herb. If you hit it too hard then it will light up on fire and you’ll loose more of your wax. If you really like rolling joints and blunts then you’ll be happy to know that it’s totally possible to add concentrates to your favorite hand rolled smoking device. There are two main ways you can go about this: You can put it around the outside of your joint or blunt. I like to do a circle around the blunt – I call them checkpoints. Be ready for it though because it will get drippy so you have to hold it at a higher angle. You can also roll it up in the inside of your joint. I make a little ‘snake’ that I line the entire length of the rolling paper with.
Positives: This way is pretty easy and if all you have are joint papers then it’s really all you can do. Negatives: Like with using a glass bowl, rolling up your concentrates isn’t exactly the most efficient way to smoke.
You’re going to lose to quality smoke to the air, but you’ll still get nice a stoney. As mentioned earlier, the concentrates will get drippy. This isn’t as much of a problem if you put the concentrates on the inside. The concentrates may cause your joint or blunt to burn a bit weird and create runs.
