What is a concentrate vaporizer?
Wax vaporizers are a type of Weed Vape that are specifically designated to be used with concentrated forms of THC. Meaning that they’re a little more complicated, but ultimately hit much harder than herbal flower vapes.
What is a dab?
So what exactly is a dab? The short answer is that it’s a substance extracted from the cannabis flower - It’s the purest form of THC. In modern times, there are tons of popular kinds of concentrates including wax, shatter, live resin, and more.
Type of Wax Vaporizers
There are 2 varieties of wax vaporizers but at their core, they work relatively the same in terms of how the concentrate is heated.
Wax pens as the name suggests are small and portable.
While electronic dab rigs or e-rigs (or dab rigs even), can be portable but they are usually larger and include easy-to-damage glass pieces.
A Wax Pen works much the same way as most portable vaporizers. They work in two parts with a battery base and an atomizer heating element of some kind.
You'll be placing your concentrates into their heating elements by using a dabbing tool aka a metal or glass rod that helps to avoid that sticky mess. As a pro, almost all wax vaporizers in our catalog will come included with a dab tool.
We carry dab pens from top brands including Utillian, Tronian, and G Pen.
E-Rigs are kind of like dab rigs, but instead of a torch lighter, electricity is used to heat the atomizer.
Electronic dab rigs will have a rechargeable battery base, an atomizer, and a glass bubbler. Much like a bong, these bubblers will be filled with water to cool down and humidify the vapor that you inhale. The result is producing smooth and tasty hits which are easier on the lungs.
We carry E Rigs from top brands like Puffco, Focus V, and Dr Dabber.
