Vaporizer & Dab Rig Questions

What is a Vaporizer?

According to Wikipedia:  A vaporizer or vaporiser is a device used to vaporize the active ingredients of plant material, commonly cannabistobacco, or other herbs or blends for the purpose of inhalation.

Most commonly these are devices powered by batteries or household current that are used to heat up your material to the boiling points required to turn your ingredients into an inhalable vapor.

Simply put, it is something you put your marijuana, concentrates, oil, or tobacco into in order to heat up safely and more healthily and get the sweet vapor you are after!

What is a Dab Rig?

Dab rigs are a specific type of vaporizer and/or water pipe used primarily for vaporizing oils, extracts, or concentrates. “Dabbing” is the process by which these oils, extracts, or concentrates are vaporized through a vapor rig.   A dab rig typically comes with a dome and a glass/titanium/quartz nail, and can be heated up in a number of different ways.
