If you are new to dabbing, you may have heard a few terms that may be confusing, which is totally understandable. Words such as “dab pipes” or “dab rigs” may sound like a foreign language, but have no fear. I will discuss the definition of dab pipe, the difference between water pipes and dab rigs, and how to make an informed decision before purchasing one. After reading, you can impress your friends and experienced dab users once you get a hang of the terminology.
The Definition of Dab Pipes
Okay, so what are dab pipes? Dab pipes are pipes made specially for dabbing (the act of inhaling smoke from legal extracts). A dab pipe is great to use when trying out different types of oils. There is a part on the pipe called a nail where the user heats it up with a torch and then applies a piece of the oil before putting the smoke in one’s lungs. When a person is talking about dab rigs, they are actually referring to dab pipes; don’t confuse them with basic water pipes for dry herbs such as bubblers or percolators. (Although there are bubbler and percolator-style dab rigs as well).
Types of Dab Pipes
There is a wide variety of dab pipes to choose from. At the end of the day, preference and cost is what will determine your choice of a dab pipe. Some are miniature while others are large and noticeable from a distance. One of the reasons people choose smaller pipes is for easier transport.

Many dab rigs have special themes that make the design very unique. Look into different brands and see which works for you. Some dab pipes have designs that come from video games, television shows, or even different home appliances. Don’t forget about the materials used. Choose from titanium, glass, quartz, or even ceramic dabbing tools. Individuals are looking for an intense, yet smooth smoke when they take their hits. Remember, you want to focus on quality.

“Whats the average cost for quality dab pipes?”
You will want something affordable and easy to store for later usage. When I bought my first dab pipe, I did not know what to look for in a pipe except one that did not hurt my account balance. Luckily I found something that was around $75, which is pretty cheap compared to other dab rigs. The average price for a good quality vapor rig will be around $120-350. But if you’re looking for something a bit more custom or heady glass – you’ll be looking around the $500 to $2,000 range! If you can afford to buy your favorite one that catches your eye, then certainly DO!
Tips When Shopping for Dab Pipes
My advice when you are doing shopping for a decent dab pipe, visit online smoking shops to help. Not only can you see pictures of the products, but you may come across videos and descriptions. Also, past buyers can leave reviews for the website itself, or the products. You may use various payment methods like a credit card, debit card, or even an online bank account.
Dab pipes, like this ZOB 14mm Zobello Direct Injection Princess Mini Vapor Tube can be fun to use and very stylish. Be sure to look through every category offered on the online shop websites and make an educated selection. Hopefully, you have learned more on how to invest and choose a proper dab pipe before simply picking one because of “how cool” it looks.
