Dab Tools or dabbers are the key tools for dabbing extracts. Dabbers come in different shapes and sizes, making separating, scooping, and moving different concentrates easy.
Some of these dab tools or dab wands are highly decorative, while others focus on functionality and are specialized for use with different concentrate consistencies.
Having the right dab tool in your arsenal will ensure your well prepared for a dabbing session. You can easily move your concentrate from its container to the banger without dropping it or making a mess.
What are dab tools made from?
Dab tools are made from a few materials: glass, titanium, and stainless steel are the most common examples.
These are all very heat resistant but come with different pros and cons.
Glass dab tools can be very artistic and with a wide variety of themes that help you customize your dabbing setup for aesthetical preferences. However, glass tools are more prone to breaking if dropped. The edges usually are more rounded and less defined, so these tools are more suited for softer waxes that don't need cutting or scooping up.
Stainless steel and titanium dab utensils are more durable than glass dabbers. They come with different-shaped ends for use with specific concentrates.
What are different dab tools for?
Each dab tool is designed for use with a different type of concentrate.
A dab tool with a spoon shape is preferred for crumbly wax concentrates. Dab tools with pointed sharp tips are better for harder concentrates like shatter. Below we will list the different styles of dab tools and what concentrates they are better suited to.
- Dab Scoops — Scoop dabbers, as the name suggests, have a rounded spoon-like shape. These dab tools work best for crumbly waxes, live resin crystals, diamonds, and other concentrates with a similar consistency. You can cut and scoop the waxes up with the dab tool before placing them into your banger.
- Dab Shovels — Shovel Dabbers are versatlie dab tool. They're good for use with softer concentrates that can be shoveled up and dropped onto your nail or into your banger.
- Dab Picks — Dab picks work best with hard concentrates that are not very malleable. You can use a dab pick to crack or pick up hard concentrates like shatter.
- Dab Claws — Dab claws are a must-have grabbing tool if you use terp pearls or vape diamonds. They make picking up those hot ruby and sapphire pearls effortless and save messing about with a spoon or shovel-style dabber.
- Dab Spatulas — Spatula dabbers work best with loose, runny concentrates like live resin or terp sauce. They're ideal for concentrates you need to scoop and smear into your banger.

We even have full dab tool kits that have a tool shaped for every different type of concentrate, all in a handy carry case. So you'll always have the perfect tool for any dab.
How do you use wax dab tools?
To use your dabbers, select the right tool for the kind of concentrate you will use. Then separate the dab you wish to use from the rest of the concentrate.
Preheat your banger and let it rest until it's at the right temperature.
Use the dab tool to apply the concentrate to the top of the nail or the bottom of your banger. You may need to roll or gold the tool against the side of your banger for all the concentrate to fall off it.
When you have finished dabbing, let the dab tool cool down so it is safe to touch. Then use a little isopropyl alcohol and a paper towel to clean the dab tool and wipe away any residue. This prevents your concentrates from mixing up and affecting your next dab's flavor.
Herb grinders are an essential accessory for any frequent smoker of dry herb.
Whether packing a bowl on a Lookah bong, loading a spoon pipe, or rolling up, having a consistent grind enhances your smoking experience.
If you're tearing herbs apart by hand or using scissors, the resinous parts of the plant will stick to your hands. Not only does that make a mess, but it will also reduce your weed's potency. You're also liable to lose bits of weed as it pings out of the scissors or gets dropped down the side of the sofa.
If you use a grinder, every part of the herb is kept inside the chamber. So there is no waste, and many grinders have a sieve so the keif can be collected separately.
Why Use a Herb Grinder?
Many people won't bother with a weed grinder when they start smoking dry herb. But if you smoke frequently, grinders make life so much easier. The time saved alone is worth the investment. Using a grinder for weed means you can do in seconds what would take several minutes to do by hand.
Grinders separate the herb to a standard size, which allows for better-packed bowls and rolled smokes with an even airflow.
With each granule of herb the same size, each gets burnt at the same rate, so you don't lose potency and have smoother smoke.
How Do Weed Grinders Work?
Most grinders are made from and have multiple pieces that connect to create a grinding chamber and a secondary chamber for storage.
The grinding space consists of opposing teeth that fit together in a mesh.
The herb's nugs are placed here, and when the two sides are rotated, the teeth slice through the herb.
A number of holes between the teeth allow the ground-up herb to be collected into the storage chamber.
Different types of Grinders
The most common style of grinder is the multi-piece grinder.
The simpler ones are three-layer grinders as they are composed of three pieces. Some grinders have a fourth layer with a fine screen to keep the powered kief separate from the ground herbs. Each layer connects together into one compact grinder that can both grind and store your bud.
The most basic grinder is a two-piece grinder. It doesn't have a separate storage compartment. It just allows you to shred your weed efficiently. The advantage of a 2 piece grinder is its small compact shame, which easily slides into your pocket.
Most grinders are used manually by twisting them, but some have a handle that makes grinding easier and may be preferred if grinding larger amounts of herb.
There are automated grinders as well, which run electronically. These operate at the press of a button. Several of these electric grinders allow for the automatic filling and storage of cones.
These are larger pieces, but if you want to roll many joints for a group of smoking friends or a party, they make it a quick and effortless task.
How to choose the best weed grinder
If you want a simple grinder that does the job and nothing more, pick up a 2 piece grinder. These are the OG of grinders and are very affordable.
Level up a layer and get a multi-piece grinder. These grinders have extra storage for your weed.
The next level of grinder is the 4-layer grinder. These have a mesh screen to help separate your kief from the ground herb.
The next level up from manual grinders is electric grinders. These are all singing, all dancing gizmos that can shred your weed at the touch of a button.
Material: When buying a weed grinder, you want something that will last. Weed grinders can be made of many materials; wood, plastic, and metal are the most popular options. Wooden grinders have a nice natural aesthetic feel to them. Plastic grinders are lightweight and also relatively cheap. Metal grinders may cost a little more, but they are easier to clean and should last a long time.
However, a grinder is more than just a fancy container for your weed. The most important part of any grinder is the teeth.
Many will have diamond-shaped metal teeth that are efficient for slicing your weed rather than crushing your pot. These razor-sharp teeth are important for slicing and dicing the bulkiest of nuggets.
Wide teeth will also allow your grinder to fluff the weed while grinding it rather than crushing the weed.
Size: The larger your grinder is, the more weed you can load and grind at any one time. Grinders typically start around 60mm or 2.5 inches.
Bowls and Sliders
Bong bowls, sometimes called bong slides, are the necessary piece of your bong for smoking herb. If you want to use your water pipe for smoking plants like tobacco, you'll need one of these.
These flower bowls are made from high-quality glass and come in a range of different sizes, shapes, and colors. The most common bong bowl sizes are 14mm bowls and 18mm bowls. Make sure you select the right size bong slide for your water pipe to ensure it fits the down stem.
All bongs need a downstem; otherwise, it is just a fancy bit of glass with a hole in it and no use for smoking herb. Many bongs have a fixed downstem that is part of the water pipe. However, some have removable downstems. A downstem functions to carry the smoke from the bowl to the water chamber of the water pipe. They are available in a range of lengths and diameters to fit different size bongs, so be sure to check what size downstem you need before purchasing one.
When measuring your downstem be sure to measure from the knuckle below the sandblasted part at the top of the pipe all the way down to the end of the stem past the diffuser slits. This will give you the correct length of the downstem so you have the right length to reach into the water chamber of your pipe. You will find a good range of downstems with different designs, colors, and sizes to fit your water pipes in this category.
