A dab rig is no more than a water pipe that has been modified for the consumption of waxes and concentrates, otherwise known as dabs. Some refer to the dab rig as a modern stoner bong. The best dab rigs available are manufactured from glass, and the perfection of the glassblower is what can determine the price of these cannabis accessories.

If you are looking for a beautiful art dab rig that will break the bank for many, don't expect to find it at your local smoke shop. The Throne by Darby, Banjo, Scott Deppe & Clinton Roman will not be on the shelf, because this piece of art was sold at an auction for one million dollars.
