Best Electric Dab Rigs
What Are the Best Electric Dab Rigs?
In the last few years, dabbing with oil rigs or nectar collectors has become popular. Dabbing is an efficient way to inhale a concentrated dose of your herb of choice. However, most dabs require a blowtorch to heat up the titanium nail or quartz nail.
Then an innovation called electronic dab rigs (also known as e-rigs or eRigs) became the perfect alternative to a torch. An electric dab rig eliminates burning plant matter, providing a smoother inhalation with water filtration for the lungs.
Here are the best e-rigs on the market in 2021.
