DABBING concentrates is something that is very popular these day.  You can take a couple of dab hits and be well medicated for a good while.  Dabbing is something that is here to stay and there are a number of different tools that you can use to enjoy yourself. 

The mini dab rig is such a device.  It allows for you to use a small amount of water to allow for a very smooth dab hit.  These mini dabbing rigs are perfect and very portable.  When using concentrates it is not necessary to use a big bong.  It's much easier to use one of these mini dab rigs.  Not much air flow is really needed to do dabs.  The smaller WATERPIPES work very well for dabbing.  The mini dab rig provided for a very smooth and energizing dab intake.

Picking is one of the fun things that you can do at a smoke shop.  There is nothing better then picking out the perfect pipe for your lifestyle.  It's important to buy a quality pipe.  This is something that you will use almost everyday.  It only hurts you to not get the one that you really need.  Many times people go for the cheapest pipe.  This is the worst thing that you can do.  It would be like you saying you want the cheapest ready glasses.  If your using something everyday make sure that they fit your lifestyle and function.

Dabbing is one of my favorite things to do. I have about ten oil rigs in my personal collection.  They are all different styles and shapes.  I personally use the sour glass or Roor glass dab rigs.  The two glass companies have been around a long time and they still produce some of the best durable glass.   You can purchase these dabbing rigs at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP from $50 - $200 depending on the amount of work on the glass.   I usually switch up and use my microG Vaporizer when I'm on the go.  The G-pen is cool for when im traveling, but nothing beats dabbing out of glass dab rig with water!

Titanium Dome-less Nails San Diego

Something that every person that dabs should do is treat there nail before use.  You can season your nail with safflower oil or some other high heat oil.  this will allow the nail to work better and take out any impurities or burn off.   The nails that we sell start at a range of $30 and up and are a high grade titanium. I always suggest using a domeless nail that can fit right in your water pipe.   The dome less nail will allow you to not have to use a globe.  If you feel that you are losing some smoke I suggest using a carb cab.   Dabbing should be fun and as easy as possible.  A sour dabbing dish and dabber is what i recommend you also get when you visit illusions vape smoke shop.

What Are Percolators In A Bong

A lot of people wonder about the different percolators used in water pipes and if they make much of a difference, and if so which one is the best? The answer to these questions are Yes they make a difference, and there are so many different styles to choose from it really depends on what you're looking for.


 Essentially what a Percolator does is adds an extra filter so that you have a smoother cooler hit. How it works is the smoke passes through the water into the diffuser causing the filtration while also breaking up the smoke with small water bubbles making the smoke disperse evenly into your lungs, while also cooling it at the same time. 


 There are many different styles to choose from, and they continue to make different styles. Their the Tree style ones. These one have arms that come down looking similar to a tree, thus the name "Tree Perk" there can be as little as 3 of the arms all the way to 25. The arms have slits in the bottom that work as a diffuser, the more arms the more diffusion. These ones do make for a very smooth hit but are a bitch to keep clean! So if your are planning on getting one of these styles please practice regular cleaning and maintenance on it! There's also one known as a Dome Perk. The names are very self explanatory when it comes to the perks. It's called a dome as it is a Dome shape.Dome styles are good because they can be used in a lot of different ways. They can have holes along the bottom or slits. The cuts in these makes a difference in how the bubbles are broken up, which makes different types of hits.


 All in all I do recommend every smoker have a water pipe with a Percolator. Knowing what kind is for you requires research and experience. You can have the employees at the shop put some water in for you so you can get a feel of how the water runs though when you suck on it.

Sour Glass Bongs

Joey FierroComment

joey Fierro-September 29,2014

Based out of San Diego, California Sour Glass has bulit a reputable and coveted glass company across the country. From water pipes to bubblers, pipes, dab bubblers, steam rollers, nectar collectors, bowls, stems, and everything that you might need to smoke out of. Prices start as low as $20 and can go up to $1000. Sour invented the "Zong" which is a regular water pipe but it has unique shaped "Z" in the middle of the glass neck. Remember to only to buy Sour Glass from a certified retailer, you never want to buy a piece from just a random store , not knowing the authenticity of the glasswork. There are many horror stories of people who have purchased a brand name glass pipes and it ended up being fake because they purchased it at a swapt meet or a store that was not a certified retailer. It is unfortunate that knock offs have gotten to the point where glass art is being violated at this degree. Glass Pipes are more and more artistic and elaborate these days, so remember you are getting what you pay for and the enhancement of your smoking experience is what is most important!

The GPen is a amazing wax/concentrate pen not only because it is one of the original vaporizer pens endored by many rappers like Snoop Dogg / Wiz Khalifa and Tyga

G pen has the great thing of putting two pens for the price of one which is not only not the best thing because the quality is lower.

When you decide to take your health to a higher standard you need to take a few things into consideration. You should never cut corners when it comes to your health. We only have one life and we need to take care of it fortunately smoking has helped millions of patients throughout the world. Even though smoking is frowned upon it is something that is extremely beneficial for some people. So one smoking we recommend you to use the cleanest form of glass being glass on glass or the use of a vaporizer.
