Glass Oil Rigs and Dab Rigs Guide

Which Glass Oil, Dab Rig or Best Nails?

When you're choosing any product the first thing to ask is what do I need, or what am I going to be using it for? The truth is, the kind of oil rig I'm going to use will be different if I'm dabbing with a couple of friends than the one I'd use for personal dabs.

If I'm going to a cannabis festival I'm going to be looking at something portable with a long battery life. If I'm using one on a daily basis, I want something easy to clean with a long lifespan.

Once you've answered all those questions you going to want to know a little bit about brands, about your budget and which glass oil rigs are going to give you the best experience.

Luckily for you, we've gone out to test drive a whole lot of oil rigs and we're going to be reviewing the best ones here.

Even though the outlay can seem like a lot at first it will even out over time. Buying a good glass oil, or dab rig, needs to be viewed as an investment. Pay the initial outlay, then sit back and enjoy the rewards.
  4. Something different and a great party piece - Having a dab rig is something a little different. If you're like me, then you smoke a lot, and having something a little different can be a great way to enjoy smoking again. Plus, if you're at a party, pulling out a glass oil rig is a sure fire way to get the party started.

So, there you have it, four great reasons to invest in glass oil rig. Dabbing is by far the best way to get a serious amount of THC and cannaboids. Going for professional equipment is vital to smoking oil safely. It's also gonna help keep you're smoking costs down over time as the high from oil is very economical compared to leaf.
