With the legalization of marijuana in many states, recreational and medical use have increased. Smoking is one of the most popular ways to consume weed and dabbing is a recent trend. However, choosing the best dab rigs can be difficult as there are so many options to choose from.
One of the most popular ways to smoke weed is through a bong or water pipe. This involves breaking down marijuana into small pieces called “crumbs” and then smoking it with heat (either with a lighter or by placing it on top of hot coals). Here, are some reviews for some top glass oil rigs on the market today.
What is dabbing?
Dabbing is the process of smoking small, but potent amounts of cannabis by dissolving them in a solvent such as butane or hexane (referred to as solvent). Most people buy Dab rigs for two main reasons:
- To inhale the vapor and take a hit directly from the bong or water pipe. Some people enjoy doing this for the relaxation effect it provides.
- To dab their cannabis and smoke it at a lower heat, which helps to avoid the high that can be caused by smoking in its pure form.
There are numerous variations of dab rigs out there: glass containers, aluminum cans, and even CO2 capsules. The popular ones include the Bedrock 420 Volcano (pictured above), the Blue Ice Vaporizer, the Pax 2, the Kandy Pop Glass Vaporizer, and the Pax Era, which will all be reviewed in the next section.
What do you need for dabbing?
It’s important to note that dab rigs will vary depending on the type of weed used and the materials used. For example, some of the best glassware for dabbing is similar to a water pipe, but it doesn’t heat up.
The G Loomo is a water pipe that allows you to drink cannabis through a glass straw. As mentioned earlier, other types of glassware are essential for dabbing. Here are some of the materials you’ll need for dabbing:
Glass bongs & pipes
Vaporizer cartridges & chargers
What type of glassware do you prefer?
There are many ways to use glassware. Many of the glass dabs devices can be used with a mixture of hard and soft glass, and some of the pieces have been specifically created to be paired with Dab rigs.

Water Cloned Rigs
Most water-cloned rigs are based on borosilicate glass which is comprised of a diamondlike core that is spiked with small flake stones. These beads are attached to a cylindrical stem which is then further made from a single piece of glass that forms the eye of the glass dab rig.
The glass is then either color-treated and polished with a topcoat of clear varnish to finish. This type of glass is also known as liquid glass or specular glass and is composed of the following minerals: borosilicate, chloralkali, chlorine, iodine, and aluminum oxide. This type of glass is very lightweight and flexible.
Bongs are a cheap, and relatively easy way to smoke weed. But, because the vapor doesn’t remain contained, it often tastes terrible.
