Vaporizing Plant Extracts is the hottest new trend right now. Dabbing or vaporizing concentrated plant extracts gives a more intense strong effect. The practice has been around for over 40 years but recently became popular in the last few years. Choosing the right dabbing device is very important too big and vapor loses its flavor and intensity. Too small and the vapor can be too harsh.
Dab Rigs are usually smaller than bongs because concentrate unlike flower is mainly vaporized and when it is cooled down rapidly it can condense back into a solid (reclaim) this makes larger tubes unefficient because the larger the distance the more the vapor cools down and wants to turn back into a solid.
