The Pros and Cons of an Electric Dab Rig

June 9, 2021

Cannabis has come a long way since Cheech and Chong were in a smoke-filled living room trying to figure out if “Dave” was home. While they may have made do with smoking enormous joints, today’s cannabis connoisseur has the luxury of choosing from a variety of modern cannabis ingestion methods, including dabs.

While it’s not the most common ingestion method, dabbing can be one of the most rewarding ways to enjoy the effects of cannabis. An electric dab rig is quite different than the process of packing a pipe and smoking. Here’s a closer look at some of the pros and cons of using an electric dab rig in Orlando, as well as some information on how the process works.

What is an electric dab rig?

A dab is a small amount of highly concentrated cannabis, often upwards of 80 percent THC or CBD. To consume it, the dab is heated and vaporized at a high temperature. Because of its high concentration, only a small amount is needed to feel its effects.

To use dabs, one must heat a nail to a temperature between 315 degrees and 440 degrees Fahrenheit and then touch it to the dab and quickly inhale the vapor it produces. This originally involved using a blowtorch to heat the nail. While that is still one common way to use dabs, there have been great advancements in dabbing instruments since dabs have become more common in recent years.

Electronic dab rigs eliminate the need for a blowtorch and are much safer and easier to use. These are sometimes called e-nails, as well as electronic dab rigs. They also allow for much more control over the temperature of the nail to find that elusive, vaporization sweet spot where you get the most flavor and aroma from the terpenes in cannabis.

To use an electronic dab rig, you simply need to switch on the unit and heat your nail in the controller box. When the nail reaches the appropriate temperature (the controller box will let you know), you add the dab and inhale the vapor when it burns.

Pros and cons of an electric dab rig

There are not many cons to an electric dab rig compared to the blowtorch method—but the pros are quite apparent. For starters, you won’t need to mess with a blowtorch when using an electric dab rig. Using this method also allows you to dial in the optimum temperature to release certain terpenes in your cannabis. By releasing these terpenes at the right temperature, you can fully experience the unique taste and smell of a given strain of cannabis. One downside is that, eventually, the electric dab rig will need to have its coil replaced.
