After moving recently, I found myself in a predicament: I had a few grams of high quality Blue Dream shatter, no bud, and no rig. I had to get a little creative. These are a few of the ways that I was able to smoke that bomb ass shatter without a dab rig.
Lighting a glass one hitter
I have to admit, this one made me feel like I was smoking crack or meth or something, but it was the hands down most efficient way to dab my shatter. I heated the end of my glass one hitter with my butane torch, scooped a little shatter on my dab tool, and put the oil in the tip. Simple as that. It wasn’t as strong as a dab in a rig, but I definitely felt something. It was better than nothing. I will say that if you’re going to go this route, make sure that the glass one hitter you’re using is of a high quality. You don’t want to shatter your glass under the heat of the torch. In my opinion, it’s about as good of a dab as you can get with no rig.
Vaping oil with Arizer Solo
My flower vape of choice is the Arizer Solo. I got it for a deal and I’ve been in love with it since I got it. After a little research, I determined that I could put some oil in a rolling paper, heat up my vape, and vape the oil. In case you were wondering, there’s absolutely no mess. The oil is absorbed by the paper and burns off of it until the rolling paper is crispy. It wasn’t nearly as effective as the first method, but I did feel something and it was alright. Nothing to call home about. I assume this can be done in most flower vapes if you’re really in a bind.
Moral of the story is that anything is possible if you put your mind to it. I ended up just buying a new tiny rig, and a wax vape pen. Neither have arrived and I’m excited for both. I’ll definitely let you guys know how it goes. Have you come up with any other ways to dab with no rig? Let me know!
