Consuming herbs has come a long way. While many people still choose to smoke traditional dried leaves, there are now herb concentrates readily available on the shelves of many dispensaries. There are many ways to use these concentrate pastes but one of the most popular is with a set up popularly known as a glass oil rig. It operates a bit differently from a more common pipe or bong but many people vastly prefer its results.
Essential oils are notoriously hard to extract and need to be dissolved in some serious solvents. These concentrates aren't extraordinarily popular since they’re hard to make and a little hard to smoke as well. The sticky substance can be spread on papers or into a bowl, but it makes a fine mess. Instead, dab some of the paste onto an oil rig for easy use and clean up.
What a Glass Oil Rig is
A glass oil rig is a small tabletop bauble made of blown glass used specifically for smoking oils. The base is generally a spherical shape with a pipe feeding out of the top or side for smoking. The oil or paste is applied to the head of a nail-like object and heated with a lighter or torch until it liquefies, dripping into the base; alternately, a titanium nail is heated until red hot and then the oil is dabbed on, causing it to vaporize, before putting a glass dome over the heated nail. Either way, the vapor yielded by this process is extremely smooth and concentrated, giving the patient a clean hit of very potent medicine. Many users report a stronger taste with oil rigs than with other methods.
Glass oil rigs can be very simple or extremely elaborate in design. Because their functionality is basic, there are lots of design choices that artists can make when blowing glass to create one of these pieces. Many artists swirl colored glass into their work while others make the shape of the rigs resemble animals or other objects. Many glass oil rigs for smoking are basically works of art.
Though essential oils may never be extremely popular, it does have many advantages as far as providing a clean and concentrated dose of herbs. A glass oil rig can be both functional and attractive as far as delivering these results as long as a patient is willing to handle the sticky, gooey hash oil needed to use these rigs.
