Are you just dipping your foot into the world of cannabis concentrates? If so, then you came to the right place. Dip Devices wants to help you get started with cannabis concentrates. If you know a little bit about cannabis flower, then you will already be familiar with the difference between Indica and Sativa. The world of cannabis concentrate, however, is relatively young, and technology plays a big part. Things can be overwhelming at first, with so many different devices available for cannabis concentrate. Don’t fret, we are here to help! Dip Devices Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper wax pens, and dab straws are simple and easy to use. Let’s talk a bit about which dab pens are best for people who are just starting out experimenting with cannabis concentrate.

Why Choose a Dab Pen?

If you’re a beginner with cannabis concentrate, then you are probably asking, “don’t I need a dab rig and a torch to use concentrates?” Thanks to Dip Devices, the answer to that question is a resounding “NO!” 

The barrier of entry into cannabis concentrate has been so high in the past partly because many people don’t want to deal with a butane torch and conventional dab rig. We understand completely- it can get very expensive, and if you’re used to cannabis flower it’s a totally foreign concept. A dab pen or dab straw lets people experience cannabis concentrate without a torch or rig. With a Dip Devices dab pen or dab straw, you are getting proven, patented technology that is made with ease of use, potency, and taste in mind.

Dab Pen vs Dab Straw

First off, let’s break down the difference between dab pens and dab straws. Dip Devices’ dab pens, like the Lunar, along with the multi-function EVRI, and Dipper use our precision engineered Quartz Crystal Atomizer bucket. Dab pens or wax pens are used similar to normal vape pens. Simply load the dab pen with your favorite cannabis concentrate, pop on the cap, and you are off to the races. As you press the button, the Quartz Crystal Atomizer will vaporize the cannabis concentrate. As you inhale, air flows into the atomizer chamber, delivering tasty, potent hits of cannabis concentrate anywhere, anytime. 

A dab straw or honey straw works a bit differently. For our dab straws, like the Little Dipper and the dab straw configurations of the EVRI, and Dipper, we use a NiChrome & ceramic Vapor Tip. With this style Dip Device, the tip heats handles the vaporization task. As a hot vapor tip touches cannabis concentrate, the concentrate vaporizes, and all the user needs to do is inhale through the other end of the straw to produce big hits, small hits, and everything in between.

You Read That Correctly - Multifunction Dab Straws and Dab Pens Are Here

Dip Devices’ EVRI and Dipper are what we call multifunction dab pens or dab straws. These awesome tools can be configured as an electric dab straw or dab pen. That gives you the choice of deciding how you want to consume your cannabis concentrate. We think it’s a great idea for someone new to cannabis concentrate to try different consumption methods. Some people like dab straws, while others enjoy dab pens instead. Both are equally portable, so it’s up to the user to decide what they enjoy more. When you have one tool that can be both a wax pen and a dab straw, you can experiment all you want! With Dip Devices, beginners get to sample the best of both worlds.

But wait, there’s even more. Lots of people who are just starting out with cannabis concentrate don’t want to bother handling concentrate. That’s where Pods and 510 cartridges come in- they are popular with beginners for their ease of use. The EVRI is our triple-function electric nectar collector. The EVRI can function as a dab straw, a dab pen, and a 510/Pod vape pen. So if you are thinking about getting into cannabis concentrate, but aren’t sure how you want to consume, the EVRI is a fantastic choice.

How to Choose a Dab Pen

If you’re struggling to choose between the Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper wax pens and dab straws, let us help. As a beginner with cannabis concentrate, it might be a good idea to invest in a multi-function dab pen & dab straw combination like the EVRI and Dipper. That way, you can mess around and choose which style suits you. If you have already made a decision that you only want a dab pen or dab straw, then either the Lunar wax pen or Little Dipper electric honey straw will give you exactly what you want at a great price point. You can’t go wrong no matter what you choose, but we do want to mention one thing: The Dipper has our largest battery. So if one of your top priorities is battery life, then the Dipper is the dab pen for you.

The Best Temperature For Dabbing

Here at Dip devices, we know that different people want different experiences from their cannabis flower, so the same goes for cannabis concentrate. With concentrate, some people prioritize flavor over potency, and vice-versa. If you are someone who likes to experience the taste of cannabis, then vaporizing cannabis concentrate at lower temperatures will deliver the best experience for you. If your priority is potency, then using higher temperatures to vaporize cannabis concentrate will ensure that as much THC is vaporized as possible. 

Dip Devices has designed the Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper dab pens and dab straws to utilize a range of temperatures. That means any user can configure their Dip Device to the exact temperature range they desire. For all of our electric dab pens and electric dab straws, just three quick clicks on the device’s button will change the temperature. The Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper all have three temperature settings, so beginners can experiment and find the exact experience that they are looking for. The only way a wax pen can be one-size-fits-all is to allow tons of adjustability. That’s exactly what Dip Devices has done for every electric nectar collector and dab pen that we make.

Should You Go Electric? Why We Say #TossTheTorch

At Dip Devices, we think that going electric is the future of dabbing. Simply put, it’s easier to consume cannabis concentrate with an electric dab pen or electric dab straw. The first reason is safety. While it’s not difficult to use a butane torch, there have been too many accidents that result in people getting hurt. So why not take that out of the equation altogether? That makes cannabis concentrate safer for everyone.

Expense is another reason why we think that going electric is the best way to start getting into cannabis concentrates. The initial buy-in for a torch, nail, and rig is going to cost at least a few hundred dollars. And not everyone has a few hundred dollars to spend on a cannabis concentrate setup. With the Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper dab pens and dab straws, you can start enjoying cannabis concentrates at a far lower price. We also believe it’s a whole lot easier to remember to charge your electric dab pen than it is to remember to fill your torch with butane. And even if you forget, every dab pen and dab straw we make will indicate a low battery, so you’ll know when it’s time to charge.  

Ease of use is important for cannabis concentrate beginners, too. Using concentrate is different than smoking flower- we will admit that it’s a bit more complicated. After all, you never choose the temperature of your lighter, but you do choose the temperature that you vaporize concentrates. That’s why the Lunar, Little Dipper, EVRI, and Dipper all indicate their temperature with their LED colors. You don’t need to remember an exact temperature, instead you just set your dab pen or dab straw at a certain temperature level, and never worry about it again. Or experiment with different temperatures, it’s up to you!
