What is Dabbing and Vaping?

First things first, in order for me to help you become well versed in these methods I have to provide a definition. So, what is dabbing and what is vaping? Now both are similar but also majorly different and it doesn’t help that dabbing is also a form of vaporizing in itself. The biggest difference between the two is the substances that are inhaled.

Dabbing is most exclusively used for extracts and concentrates like wax, shatter and rosin etc. Whereas a vaporizer can be used for a magnitude of materials, dried product , concentrates, waxes even e-juices!


Dabbing and Vaporizers also have different heating methods which radically change the kind of vapor that is produced; dabbing requires a dab rig (essentially a bong with a nail instead of a bowl) and some sort of heating tool (a lighter, blowtorch).

You need to heat the hell out of the nail that of which can be made from titanium, quartz or ceramic, place your substance on the hot nail this is known as dabbing and inhale the plentiful vapor through the mouthpiece on the rig. A dab rig that can provide rich, dense and flavorful dabs is the Spaceship Puck Rig by Snoop Dogg. A stunning piece of dabbing equipment at a competitive price point; this dab rig will make sure to make the most of your concentrates.

Vaping requires a Vaporizer; it employs a very different heating system also. Heating systems in are either convection or conduction heaters. In simple terms convection means that hot air passes through the chamber where your concentrates reside and transform them into dense vapor. Conduction heating however works like a frying pan on a cooker.

It heats the surface area of the material immediately activating ingredients in the material for a potent and delicious hit. Vaporizers can also vapor an array of materials. A dual vaporizer is the famous Mighty Vaporizer. The mighty can produce thick, high-quality vapor in a robust hand-held model whatever the substance.
