Naturally, you don’t want your hard earned money to go to waste. And most of us can’t drop benjamins on a new piece. We’ve got other priorities to consider. Some call it being cheap, others frugal but to be honest, more often than not it’s just sensible.
This is especially the case if you’ve only just started to dab. High quality concentrate is expensive on its own, so as you learn more about your tastes and gain more experience you’ll be ready to purchase a more expensive dab rig because you’ll know what you want; at that point it will be an investment piece.
Smaller is Actually Better
For the time being, a cheap dab rig can be just as good as that expensive rig your buddy got for $200. Needless to say, cheaper rigs tend to be on the smaller side. And frankly, you’re better off with a smaller rig anyways. That’s because small dab rigs deliver more concentrated vapor. This means it’s more potent and flavorful vapor which is what dabbing is all about.
The best bang for your buck is going with mini rigs made from food grade silicone. However, if you prefer dabbing from glass, consider quartz or pyrex. These materials tend to be slightly cheaper than borosilicate glass. But if you’re looking for thick, heavy glass, borosilicate is hands down the best material for dab rigs and bongs, alike.
Best place to buy cheap dab rigs
Cheap rigs for dabs that don’t cut corners on quality are surprisingly hard to come by. In general, you’re looking at dropping around $50-100 at least for a quality piece. But if you’re resourceful you can find a cheap dab rig with impeccable function that can earn its place as your new daily driver.
Smoke shops often have a more limited selection than what you can find in specialized online headshops. That’s why you’re probably better off going with an online shop like Stoners Rotation where you can easily compare prices and see the reviews.
So whether you’re just getting a grip on the world of dabbing or simply need a solid piece that doesn’t break the bank, we’ve got a growing selection of cheap dab rigs available online, delivered discreetly to your doorstep.
