How do you dab without a blowtorch or rig?
Here’s how you heat a dab rig without a torch using the stovetop technique:
- Turn on the stove and set heat to high.
- Hold the nail with the tongs and place it over the burner.
- Heat the nail for up to 5 minutes.
- Take it out and place it in your rig.
- Dab as usual.
How do you dab with a spoon?
Heat up a titanium pad, a spoon, or a knife a couple times and cool it off (do until you get some of the temper out), then just heat up till it’s red or your preferred temperature, take a paper clip with your wax and press it on and inhale with the straw or a water bottle (cut the bottom off).
