What is a “Dab Rig”?

A dab rig is a water pipe specifically designed for consuming cannabis concentrates as opposed to ground buds. The primary difference is that a dab rig generally has a male joint as opposed to the female joint usually found on a bong (male joints are ideal for most nails). Typically, a dab rig is also smaller than a traditional bong.

Dab Rig (noun):
  1. Pronounced: /dab rig/
  2. A pipe designed for vaporizing cannabis concentrates.
  3. Sometimes called an oil rig, and is used to smoke rosin, shatter, butane hash oil (BHO), glass, CO2 oil, or other cannabis concentrates.
Usage Examples

“Most dab rigs are made of glass but like bongs, come in many shapes and sizes.”
