Use a Rig
A rig is a niche term for a glass pipe, with similarities to a traditional bong. The rig contains a vertical chamber with a mouthpiece and hole, in that hole you stick a metal or glass nail. You heat the nail with a butane torch with the ideal temperature reaching 550-750 degrees. Apply the shatter onto the nail, this will combust the oil and result in a thick cloud of smoke within the rig where you then pull through and inhale. Rigs can vary in price, anywhere from $50-$10,000. This is without question the best way on how to consume shatter.
How To Use a Dab Rig
Dabbing using rig can be done in several steps, starting off load a dab of marijuana shatter onto the dabber. Load up your marijuana shatter beforehand so you are ready while the nail is still hot. Start small when first dabbing shatter, small amounts are extremely potent, make sure to go slow on your first dab to judge the effects it has on you.
Using a butane torch, heat up the nail that comes with your rig until it begins to turn red, when it comes to nails made of quartz make sure you don’t overheat. The best temperature to heat the nail is around 500-800 degrees. When heating the nail make sure to remember that in the hotter your nail is the more the extract will vaporize creating stronger effects, however a lower temperature will produce more flavors and be a much smoother hit.
When the nail is fully heated take your THC shatter repeatedly tapping or placing your dabber on the hot area of the nail. While the THC shatter melts and the vapor begins to fill your rig, you can begin to inhale drawing the vapor through the water and into your lungs. When looking to use shatter, smoking with a dab rig is your best option for optimal potency and flavour.
