Haute Box: 10 Awesome Dabbing Products to Add to Your SetupKatie ShapiroOctober 31, 2017
To newcomers, the lexicon alone—from blow torches, nails, and carb caps to rigs, bangers, and mats—is pretty intimidating. But cannabis companies are finally designing products to make the entire process more user-friendly, and its reputation has become deservingly less illicit. Here, we’ve curated a list of our latest and greatest dabbing discoveries to take your next session to the next level.

Dr. Dabber Boost eRig, $149.95
With a glass water-filtration system for the smoothest of hits, Dr. Dabber remains the most civilized dab setup we’ve seen yet—no blowtorch required. The latest launch is its all-black edition, which boasts a larger nail (titanium, ceramic, and quartz included) and a modular heating element employed with the touch of a button. The entire system is magnetic and also comes with a carb cap, loading tool, two medical grade silicon storage containers, a USB charging cable, and a limited edition keychain. Oh, and it’s all easy to store in a discreet, airtight, padded wood box.
GRAV Fire-Button Portable E-Nail, $169.99
Great for on-the-go sessions, this portable e-nail is compatible for use with any female-jointed water pipe or upright bubbler. An insulated whip cord connects the joint to the battery, where the e-nail—a sheet of titanium foil set into a removable skillet—is controlled by a single button. Crimped around a ceramic heating element, the foil edges and entire assembly are also free of any adhesive materials.
GRAV 5” Circuit Rig, $74.99
If you’re using the GRAV e-nail, this is the rig that works best. Made with 60mm tubing, its angled mouthpiece creates a powerful centrifugal force in the water to cool and filter the vapor. It also comes ready to use on its own with a 14 mm domeless, heat-tolerant quartz nail.
Swerve Glass Gold Fumed Cone Banger Hanger, $69.99
When shopping for a traditional dab rig setup, the glass options are usually uncolored, endless, and pricey. The “banger hanger” design is a newer favorite, admired for its dense, durable construction and compatibility with both flower and concentrates. Made with borosilicate glass, this five-inch honey-hued piece not only matches the shatter you’ll use with it, but is also pretty enough to set out and show off. It accepts 14mm male accessories, not included; we recommend a Flame Polished Quartz Banger, Quartz Carb Cap with Dab Tool, and Home Blown Glass Carb Cap Dabber.
ResÖlution ResCaps & ResGel, $19.99
Cleaning and storing glass has never been easier or eco-friendlier with this non-toxic, clay-based formula paired with a pack of three silicone covers that stretch universally to seal over pieces of any size. Once the ResCaps are firmly in place, pour the ResGel cleaning solution directly into your rig and rinse with warm water before taking a sparkling clean rip. For smaller accessories, you can drop resinated stems and parts directly into the resealable pouch for up to eight cleans.
moodmats Artist’s Collection, from $15
An essential anchor to every dab sesh, we love moodmats for their eco- and artist-forward approach. All moodmats are made with neoprene scraps collected and upcycled from materials like wetsuits, gaskets, and weatherstripping found in landfills. Plus, they collaborate with some of the biggest glass names in the biz like Kurt B., Robertson, and Ryno for limited edition runs (that sell out ASAP).
Mystic Timber Dabbing Tools, from $18
Hand-carved in the rolling hills of northern New Jersey by a husband and wife team of artists, we love almost every tool in their rustic line (for dabbing or otherwise). But the T2 Medical Grade Titanium flat dabber is the go-to for concentrates thanks to its easy-to-hold wooden handle and precise tip.
420 Science Dab Dish Pro and Wax Wallet, $9.99 and $7.99
Leave it to 420 Science to create the ultimate in concentrates storage. The second generation Dab Dish Pro silicone bowl insert comes in two sizes that fit perfectly into its signature concentrate jars, and are also upgraded with a notched dabber rest. When heading somewhere besides home, take the smaller Wax Wallet with you—it’s a hinged clamshell container with a silicone liner that also easily slides in and out of your pocket.
Blazer GT8000 Big Shot Butane Torch, $50.99
Say sayonara to the chintzy creme brûlée tool from Bed Bath & Beyond that you’ve been using, and say hello to the dabber’s torch of choice. This refillable flame (butane canisters sold separately) has a brass flame nozzle with a secure safety lock that creates a precise, direct heat application to your nail.
Kindtray High Kick, $79.99
For the ultimate concentrate connoisseur, this organization station has a place for everything in order to keep your sessions fresh and clean. American-made with responsibly sourced materials, this Kindtray includes two small dividers, a DUO mat, and a titanium tool along with its signature rubber sealed lid, magnet surface, cutout grooves, and pre-drilled dabber holds. It’s discreet, too, with a hinged design that makes it easy to pack it up and put it away.
