As dabbing culture grows, more companies are manufacturing dab accessories to help
customers get their fix with minimal risk. In the dabbing world, the term “dab tool” could
refer to any of the bits and bobs that you need to enjoy your wax safely. It might come as a
surprise, but placing sticky concentrate on a burning hot surface is not as safe as it sounds.
There are many dab tools on the market, but the single most important gadget you could
use to increase the safety of your experience is known as a dabber tool. But how can you
tell a good dabber pick from a low-quality one? Are the same dabbers that work for shatter
good for waxes, oils, or live resin?
What Is A Dabber Tool?
Simply put, a dabber tool is similar to a mini shovel that allows you to transfer cannabis
concentrate onto your dabbing rig’s sizzling nail. While there are many variations on
dabber materials, most are made out of heat-resistant quartz, titanium, steel, or glass.
Using a dabber dramatically reduces the risk of getting burnt or inadvertently burning
something while dabbing. In addition to safety, dabbers are easy-to-use and (depending
on how you handle them) long-lasting.
As a quick aside, sometimes people also use the term “dabber” to refer to dabbing
enthusiasts. Although technically you should only use “dabber” to describe the transfer
tool, you’ll probably run across the “dabber” label applied to people in your cannabis
Types Of Dabber Tips
In addition to different materials used in dabber manufacture, there are various dabber
designs on the marketplace. The most important feature customers should look into,
however, is the shape of the tip.
Generally, you’ll find three types of dabbers:
● Needlepoints: Better for stable and solid concentrates
● Ballpoints: Better for stable wax and larger concentrate pieces
● Spoon-shaped dabbers: Best for distillates, sauce, oil resins, and more malleable
Those who like thick cannabis concentrates like shatter usually prefer dabbers with
ballpoint or needlepoint tips for carving. These sharp tops really help users make clean slices into hard
shatter to better control their portion size.
On the flip side, people who like to use looser concentrates like sauce, waxes, sugars, or oils often opt for dabbers with wider spoon-like tips. The smoother surface of these tops helps users
pick up highly pliable concentrates, but they won’t be able to make a dent in hard shatter.
