When it comes to vaping, concentrates are only gaining popularity. Concentrates are more efficient, flavorful and potent than their dry herbal counterparts. They come in a few forms of varying consistency like shatter, wax and oil. While concentrates are great, they can be a little trickier to work with. Unlike dry herb that is easy to grind and load into a piece or vaporizer, concentrates are sticky and messy; handling wax with bare hands is not recommended. Fear not, where there is an issue the market has a solution. You need cool dab tools for the best results when working with concentrates.

Wax tools and honey dippers also considered cool dab tools. These are usually stainless steel or glass rods that are used to handle the concentrate for loading into a vape or dabbing. Lastly, nectar collectors or honey straws are some of the coolest dab tools. These devices allow you to vape concentrates directly.
There are tons of options out there when it comes to dabbing tools. It is good to do research before you buy as not all products are created equal. There is a big difference between products when it comes to price, quality and durability. The cool dab tool that works best for you will be based on your needs and budget.
