Dabbing is done differently depending on the rig being used.
Load a dab of concentrate onto the coil or coils in the ceramic cup, from a dab tool or wand, that sits inside the globe. Most require you to remove the globe to access the coil(s). Not all pens use a coil some have a ceramic surface to put the dab onto. Once the concentrate is loaded, replace the globe, press and hold the button until the desired amount of smoke fills the globe chamber. Inhale smoke through the mouthpiece hold for a moment, exhale when ready.
Dab rigs with metal or ceramic nail
Many of these devices will be familiar to those that smoke flower. They tend to have a lower section that needs water, just like your bong. Make sure the water level is not too high or you will be drinking dab water. Attach the nail to the stem of the rig it goes in the spot the bowl would go on if this were a bong. Load a dab of concentrate onto a metal dab tool or wand, no I do not recommend glass as it can shatter. Use a torch to heat the nail for Titanium we are looking for a change in color or red hot. Ceramic doesn’t change color look for a semi-sweet smell coming off the ceramic, do not get too close to the hot ceramic. Wait to a count of between 30 and 45, this depends on how fast you count, then apply your dab to the surface of the nail. Replace the dome over the nail, inhale smoke hold for a moment, exhale when ready.
Please be aware this is for a basic set up and yours may have a percolator that may require water in an extra section these instructions are for base models only ask your glass retailer or provider if your new glass requires water in other sections before selecting it.
