What is Dabbing?

Dabs are any concentrates, potent oils, or resins that can be vaporized at high heat and inhaled for a truly elevated buzz. Various forms of dabs include shatter, wax, rosin, and live resin. One of the main ways to inhale the vapors of a dab is to use a specialized water pipe called a dab rig, which allows you to inhale vapors instead of the traditional smoke that would come from smoking herbs or flowers.

What is a Dabber or Dab Tool?

When dabbing, you should always use a dab tool or what is also known as a dabber. A dab tool is specifically designed for handling concentrates and oils.  Dab tools are typically elongated picks with a sharp point and made from stainless steel or glass.  Although these tools come in different sizes and shapes, they are usually small enough to fit in your hand.  The process of dabbing includes picking up a dab of cannabis concentrate and applying it to a heated surface called a nail or banger located on a dab rig and inhaling the vapor.  Dab tools are specifically designed for heat and are 100% safe to use for this process.

How Do You Use a Dab Tool?

Fortunately, using a dab tool is super easy:

    1. Use your tool to pick your concentrate
    2. Apply it to the heated nail or banger on your dab rig
    3. Slowly inhale
    4. Rotate the tip to prevent dripping and catch to the excess oil
    5. Exhale
    6. Contemplate the endless bounds of the universe
    7. Repeat

4 Reasons Why a Dab Tool is Necessary

1. Avoid Burns

Dab nails can get extremely hot when in use, similar to a stovetop burner. Using a dab tool, like using cooking utensils, helps you avoid touching hot surfaces and protects you from burns

2. Accurate Doses

Dab tools allow you to accurately measure and dispense the right amount of concentrate for each dab. This ensures that you’re not wasting your precious concentrates and can help you avoid taking too much or too little.

3. Improved Flavor

Using a dab tool to handle your concentrates can help preserve their flavor. When you handle concentrates with your fingers, you can transfer oils and other contaminants onto them, which can affect the flavor. By using a dab tool, you can avoid this and ensure that you’re getting the full flavor profile of your concentrates.

4. Avoid Contamination

Similar to the improved flavor, using a dab tool can also prevent contamination from oils and other substances on your fingers. This helps maintain the purity and quality of your concentrates.


Using a dab tool for dabbing concentrates can make your experience more enjoyable and efficient. With accurate dosing, reduced contamination, ease of handling, and improved flavor, dab tools are an essential tool for any concentrate enthusiast. Whether you’re a seasoned dabber or new to the game, incorporating a dab tool into your dabbing routine can help you get the most out of your concentrates. So, the next time you reach for your dab rig, be sure to grab your dab tool too!
