Turn your Bong into a Dab rig.

Ceramic Nail Review “Live the Dab Life”

Turn your Bong into a Dab rig.

Turn your Bong into a Dab rig.

Anytime I speak to patients to patients about the various forms of marijuana consumption the conversation eventually always leads to “Do you dab? My answer was always a resounding “Meh”. I tried using a globe attachment in the past.  It was a convenient and affordable option being an E-Cig smoker, and already owning the battery.  But I found the experience to be mild and less enjoyable then when I sprinkled the wax on some nice bud, and I felt no sense of loss when the coils within the globe broke.

Warning: The coils are sensitive to excessive heat or vibrations.

I wanted to get into dabbing and there’s no shortage of wonderful glassware you can find at any smoke shop, but the initial cost always seemed a little high for my tight budget. Prices started at $100 for a kit that didn’t feel flimsy and breakable if my cat were to look at it the wrong way.

The solution – Ceramic Nail ($30) and Glass Elbow Attachment ($10)


The glass elbow attachment combined with the ceramic nail allowed me to turn my water pipe which is normally used for dry flower, into a high quality dab setup. The elbow has 10mm and 14mm ends allowing it to be used with the nail and most down stems on your bong. The angle on the elbow allows the nail to sit straight up at a 90-degree angle to reduce the concentrates chance of bubbling over the edge. (This is helpful if the down stem is at 45-degree angle.) I decided to go with the porcelain nail over the titanium; it allows a more even heat distribution and reduces the chance of your glassware breaking when exposed to extreme heat compared to a metal on glass connection with titanium nails.

Tips for new dabbers:


 

  • 1 Dose of Concentrates = Same size as a grain of rice (For Most New Dabbers)
  • Only medicate with Lab Tested concentrates. Solvents such as butane could be hazardous to your health.
  • Use a butane torch lighter and get the nail incredibly hot. Approx 30-60 Seconds
  • Can’t find your dab stick, try a #2 flat head screwdriver or a nail.
  • Keep some water handy and Medicate Safely my friends.
