We Found The Best Dab Rig. Here’s How To Use It

Whether you have dabbed before, or are thinking about giving dabbing a try, there’s no question that dabbing has become an incredibly popular practice.

But why? What makes dabbing so special?

To find out, we need to look at what a dab is, what dabbing provides that is different than other forms of cannabis intake, and what type of instruments are needed to dab.

What Is Dabbing?

Dabbing is defined as heating up cannabis concentrates on a hot surface to create vapors and then inhaling that vapor.

Verywell Mind defines a dab as a highly-concentrated substance that contains high levels of whatever you are wanting to inhale-whether that be THC or CBD. Dabs are sometimes also referred to as wax, shatter, budder or amber. Simply put, it’s a small amount of concentrated oil.

So, just to make that more concise, dabbing is when you heat up a dab to create vapors, and then inhale those vapors for a strong and concentrated hit.

Dabbing is growing in popularity because it offers incredibly quick and hard-hitting effects. It also offers a more flavorful experience as well. Because it involves heating up a concentration of cannabis or CBD, dabbing with a dab rig, like the ones from DSH Hub, can truly give you a unique experience, with more concentrated pain relief and therapeutic effects.

Where Can You Find The Best Dab Rig?

Now, if you’re here reading this article, chances are you have either dabbed before and are looking for a premium kit, or are thinking about giving it a try and don’t know where to start. 

In either case, we’ve got you covered! Check out the Mini Henail Dab Rig/E-Rig Kit.

How To Use A Dab Rig Kit

Keep reading below for a step-by-step walkthrough of how to use a dab rig kit inspired by our friends at Leafly

Heat Up The Nail

First things first, you need to heat up your nail. Our dab rig kit allows you to be able to heat up your nail using our battery-powered rig. This makes things convenient because the one-button operation allows you to be able to control the temperature yourself. If you are using another dab rig, you can use a butane torch to apply direct heat to the nail. Do this until the nail turns hot enough to get red. 

If you’re looking for a good lighter at a great price, check out the DSH Hub collection of lighters and torches. We’ve got lots of options!

Then, Cool It Down

You’ll want to make sure that your nail cools down enough to not scorch your product. For quartz nails, wait for about 45 seconds, and for a titanium nail wait for about 10 seconds. Everything depends on what you want out of your experience, so this step may take some trial and error.

Dab The Concentrate With The Nail

Put the dab directly on the hot nail, twisting it in the process so that you vaporize as much of your concentrate as possible.

Inhale, Inhale, Inhale

While you are vaporizing the dab, simultaneously inhale. This one seems pretty obvious, but doing these steps in the right or wrong order can and will make or break your experience with the dab rig kit. 

Make sure you inhale slowly because most of the concentrated dab will not vaporize immediately like in a normal bong.

Carb Cap It

If you have a carb cap, make sure you tap the dab. What this does is make sure that the airflow to your lungs as you exhale is regulated. It will also serve to keep the dab warm, creating the best experience possible.


This one seems obvious, but we don’t want you to forget! Exhale quickly, as you don’t want the vapors lingering in your lungs.

Clean That Nail

After you exhale, you’ll want to clean your nail right away. This is an incredibly important step, as your dab may have left a bit of residue on the nail. If the nail stays dirty that way, it’ll affect future dabs, and may affect your entire experience. So make sure you stay clean!
