How to Choose the Best Dab Rigs Under $100

If you’re looking to invest in your smoking experience with a dab rig, congratulations! Dabbing allows for us to consume the greatest benefits from our dry herb without having to smoke dry herb itself. Compared to dry herb, concentrates produce vapor when they’re heated, so it’s a lot easier on our throats and lungs to consume concentrates!

Investing in a dab rig doesn’t always have to break the bank. In fact, there are a lot of dab rigs at Cloud 9 Smoke Co that cost less than $100 and are supreme in functionality. There are a lot of styles to choose from, and we’ll break it down for you! Here’s our take on how to choose the best dab rigs under $100.

Ready? Let’s dive in!

Recycler Dab Rigs

Recycler dab rigs are dab rigs that feature external, or internal, chambers on the dab rig to push air and your concentrate vapor through the rig multiple times to be filtered and diffused as much as possible before hitting the dome!

Recycler dab rigs are a popular choice in the dabbing community because of their ability to provide smooth, filtered vapor that’s easy on the throat and lungs. If you’ve ever seen how a recycler dab rig works, you should also know that many dabbers seek recycler dab rigs for how amazing they look as well!
