Dab pipes are used by users to smoke medicinal substances by pressing the substance against a heated surface of the pipe.
This action is known as dabbing.
It’s fast becoming a preferred trend to smoke legal and/or medicinal substances as it has a far less harsh effect of smoking. Since dabbing is done at high temperature, it will burn the substances more efficiently. For users who are averse to smoke, using a dab pipe is a better option because it gives off vapor.
Dab pipe has a nail or a skillet on it and this part is usually made from titanium or quartz. To heat this surface, the user can use a handheld torch. The user dabs a small amount of substance or extract to the hot surface where it will flash into a vapor, which was then inhaled by the user. Using a dab pipe doesn’t cause the substance or extract to combust and therefore leading to a cleaner and pure inhalation.
Because dab pipes are subjected to very high heat, it’s important to get a good quality one. It’s definitely worth an investment if you’re looking to buy one. There are many online stores that sell dab pipes or rigs that you can choose from. Smoke Cartel, Badass Glass, and Go Go Pipes sell are few of the top sellers of dab pipes and they sell them online. These dab pipes are often made from strong borosilicate that can withstand head as well as wear and tear.
Keeping your dab pipe clean is very important.
This is because after prolonged use, it can get clogged with reburn and unvaporized extracts. These can cause your pipe to be unhygienic and primed as a breeding ground of germs and bacteria. Whether you own a simple dab pipe that are easy to clean or a more complicated technical one, you need to make sure that you clean out your pipe regularly.
