Dabbing has been around for quite sometime, eventhough it just recently became a trend in the smoking market. There are many way of dabbing , waxing and honey smoking. One of the most popular ways is using a oil rig bubbler or water pipe. These oil rigs have a male joint sticking out where a titanium nail, quartz, or glass nail sit on. It's basically a reversed bong joint. So instead of it having an opening for a bowl it's sticks out. This is where the glass dome sits on. The dome will have the female joint on it. The titanium nail sits inside the male joints hole and the dome over the top. The dome comes off when heating. When dabbing you should use a small dab rig rather than old-school larger pieces since it gives you a quicker and better hit when dabbing. There are now domeless nails that can be purchased here at Illusions Vape Smoke Shop San Diego. These domeless nails are a solid piece of titanium, Quartz, or ceramic. You do not need to use the glass domes with these. But using a dab cap will really help catch any escaping dab.
