Water And The Chamber

The reason for the popularity of dab rigs is the ability to consume concentrates, which involve much higher levels of cannabis intake because of the way it is consumed. There are many different types of concentrates when it comes to cannabis products that you want to consider for your dab rig, from resin, shatter to co2.
