Hey! Dave here from Adapterrlman and today we are going to continue our blog series of “Everything you need to know about dabbing”. I'm currently debating on changing the blog series name to How to Start Dabbing. Not entirely sure yet. So in today's post I am going to continue where I left off. So far, I've covered the basics of what a dab is, some dab rig features, and some of the dab nails available. Today I'm going to discuss dabbers, also referred to as dab wands, dab sticks, dab tools and I'm sure there are plenty more. We will also discuss carb caps. I will also discuss the different silicone products available such as containers, mats and other miscellaneous silicone products. If you missed the last post where we covered dab nails, you can click here to check it out, and if you just jumped in you may want to click here to start at the beginning of this blog series.
There are lots of dabbing tools available in the market today ranging from stainless steel, to silicone and plenty of others. We are going to cover the most basic dabbers available as there are literally hundreds or even thousands of possibilities when it comes to using something for a dabber tool. Hell, I've had to use my keys before from my car although not highly recommended but when you gotta dab sometimes you gotta dab.

What is a carb cap? That’s a great question as a lot of people ask that every day. A carb cap is used for low temperature dabbing, you use this accessory to cover the dab nail dish. Using a carb cap adds some extra benefits and we will discuss how to do this technique in detail in the last section of this blog series. The added benefits are using a lower temperatures which give you better flavors and a stronger effect when using your oils. You also can use less oils with each session because the capped nail head becomes that much more efficient during your session.
Silicone has really changed the dabbing markets when they came around starting with just a simple container to help you keep your oils safe from outside containments like dust, dirt and pocket fuzz to entire dab rigs made from silicone entirely. They have mats for your table, they have mats that are matched to line Pyrex glass bakeware to help with the extraction processes. Don't worry though because all the silicone used is the same silicone that is used in bake wares like a silicon spatula. It's all BPA free and food grade certified so you don't have to worry about any toxins from using silicone products.
Alright, and this will conclude today’s post for our blog series “Everything you need to know about dabbing”. Tomorrow we will release the final part of this series where we will cover proper dabbing techniques, low dabbing technique, and some other useful slang terms to be familiar with. We want to thank you for reading this so far and check back tomorrow for our final post.
