Manage to get your hands on some cannabis concentrates but don’t have a rig? Fortunately, there are several ways for you to smoke wax without a rig. Before dab rigs existed, people were finding ways to do their dabs. We compiled a list of ways to smoke wax without a rig.
The classic way to use concentrates was with a hot knife and a plastic bottle. Carve a hole like a cave entrance at the bottom of the water bottle. Remove the cap and you’ve got yourself a dome to trap the vapor coming off of your hot knife.
Next, prepare your dab on a heat-safe tool. Torch your knife until it gets red hot. Place the knife on the inside of the bottle without touching any of the plastic—you don’t want any plastic melting off. Drop the dab on the hot knife while inhaling from the top of the bottle and there you go. That’s how you smoke wax without a dab rig.
Twax a Joint
One of the easiest ways to use your concentrates is by smoking them along with a joint. This method is referred to as twaxing a joint. You basically twirl concentrate around the joint in a spiral or toss some inside. If plain old joints haven’t been doing the trick for you anymore, try adding wax.
If your concentrate is too solid, like for example if you’re using shatter, you can warm it up then smear it on the outside of the joint. Alternatively, you can use your hands to apply heat and roll it into a snake. Then, you roll it around the joint in a spiral or roll it into the very center of your joint. Either way, you get to smoke wax without a rig.
If you’re willing to spend some money on smoking wax without a rig, we recommend using a wax pen. These pens generally come with a chamber containing an atomizer. Atomizers are heated by a rechargeable battery but you’ll eventually have to replace them. Wax pens are great for getting high on the go while also keeping it on the low.
In a Bowl
The easiest way to smoke wax without a rig is by using it to top your bowl. First, grind up your weed and pack it into a bowl. Then, drop your crumble, shatter, or wax on top of a bowl of greens. Finally, light it like normal or use a torch and you’ll get way higher than you normally would. It doesn’t get much easier than that. If you ask us, combining weed with wax is one of the best ways to get high AF.
