The Best Dab Pens
What to Look for
Whether you’re moving on from disposable pens, upgrading your old pen, or diving right into the mix, you want to know that whatever you get is one of the best dab pens on the market.
What’s tricky about finding the best dab pen is that a lot of it comes down to personal preference. What works for one person might not work for another. That said, there are some key features to look out for.
The best dab pens all have one thing in common: they don’t use a wick to heat their chamber. Wicks burn when heated and give off harmful carcinogens that the user will inevitably inhale. You can avoid this by looking for rigs that use ceramic heating. Ceramic has a high resistance to heat and won’t give off any unwanted chemicals.
Keep it small
One of the key factors of a pen is its portability. Generally speaking, any pen you get you’ll be able to carry around in some capacity, but some pens are easier than others. You can find a compact, lightweight pen, that doesn’t sacrifice battery power or the amount of cannabis oil it can carry.
Are you a control freak?
Some dab pens have buttons, some don’t. Some pens even go so far as to have variable temperature controls, which is great if you’re finicky or if you use a wide variety of different oils.
Of course, the ease of use that comes with the buttonless units can’t be ignored. Being able to simply load the atomizer chamber and inhale is great whether you’re flying solo or having a group session. The lack of temperature control isn’t ever an issue either, these pens were built to vaporize dab oils, and they’re damn good at it.
Get a brand that takes care of you
Plenty of brands make dab pens, but the best dab pens come from the companies that offer a little more. Does your brand offer refills for your pen? Do they have multiple strain? Do they have any customization options? If you got your dab kit from Dr. Good Dabs then you already know the answer to all three of those questions is “yes.” If you’re not rocking a Dr. Good Dabs pen then you might find yourself wondering if you’ve really got the best dab pen.
