As people are growing more aware of the perils of inhaling smoke, they have started to look for other ways to enjoy the medical benefits of dry herbs. Vaping is the most common alternative, but a new delivery method called dabbing is becoming increasingly popular. Simply put, dabbing involves heating up the herb concentrates, and inhaling the vapor. If you’ve tried it and enjoy it, then it is time for you to consider investing in dab rigs.

It can be a little intimidating to pick one, especially if you are a newbie. So, here’s a handy guide that will tell you everything you need to know about dab rigs (but were too afraid to ask).

What Is A Dab Rig?

Unlike pipes, bongs, and other mechanisms used for inhaling smoke, a dab rig is not designed to set anything on fire. It has a torch that heats up a small nail, and the concentrated herb extracts are dabbed onto it. Once they heat up, they produce inhalable vapor. A dab rig is much more effective than a pipe or a bong. Since only the concentrates are involved in vapor production, you get the same kick from a single round as you would from many drags off a pipe or a bong.

The Basic Components of A Dab Rig

A dab rig has three primary components: a nail, a glass piece, and a torch lighter. Some people prefer to use a dabber (a small, short rod) to apply the concentrates. You will find a lot of dab rigs sold along with dabbers and torches as complete kits. Some people like to mix and match the components and buy them separately, which makes this a matter of personal taste more than anything.

Different Nail Styles

There is a lot of debate in the dabbing community as to which type of nail works best. Although this issue might seem too nitpicky for beginners, it is not so. The nail is responsible for heating the concentrates. It must be constructed of a material that heats up quickly and retains the heat for a sufficient time. Some of the most popular nail choices include:

  • Glass – Borosilicate is durable and works excellent in pipes and bongs. However, the material doesn’t really cut it when used as a nail. Since they don’t last very long, you will have to keep replacing them frequently. So, in the long run, you will just end up paying a lot more.
  • Ceramic – Ceramic also tends to break easily. While it retains heat better than glass, it is still an inferior option and not worth the investment.
  • Quartz – More durable than ceramic or glass and tough to overheat. The only drawback is that quartz nails do not retain heat for very long. Since it cools quickly, the concentrates may not stay heated long enough to produce vapor.
  • Titanium – This is the choice of material of experienced dabbers. The metal is practically indestructible and an excellent heat retainer. The only downside is that it can overheat and burn the concentrate. But, if you use it along with a water diffuser, you’re all set.
  • E-nails – Although few people bother with e-nails, they are really convenient. They are electric nails that have a coil and a PID that gauges the temperature of the coil. Although they cost more, you no longer have to use a torch. Also, you have much better temperature control, as you get to set the precise temperature. Since the vaporization point of different herbs varies, it is handy to have a nail where you get to set the exact temperature.

Best Practices

Unless you are using an e-nail, you need to be very careful while dabbing. Although it is not dangerous, you need to be cautious while using the torch. Don’t use it while you’re moving around. Find a secure spot and concentrate on the job at hand. Once you have settled down, get all the components in order. While there are a lot of accessories for dab rigs, like inline diffusers and showerhead percolators, most are not really worth the trouble. Just like the rig, these components can get sticky with repeated use. Once there is a sticky buildup, it can be a pain to clean it up.

Before you start, make sure that the torch has fuel. You don’t want to start heating up the nail only to realize that you ran out of fuel. Also, have the concentrates ready. As a matter of fact, you can apply them to the dabber’s end ahead of time. Light up the torch and hold it against the nail until it gets sufficiently hot, and then use the dabber to apply the concentrate. It will immediately produce vapor. So make sure that your mouth is over the mouthpiece. Depending on the material the nail is made of, it’ll take some time for it to cool down. On the other hand, if you are using a portable ring that comes with a domed nail, you can close it up almost immediately.

Emerging leader in infused cannabis beverages, BevCanna Enterprises Inc. (CSE:BEV, Q:BVNNF, FSE:7BC) (“BevCanna” or the “Company”) announced today that it has signed a letter of intent (the “LOI”) dated November 24, 2020 with Naturo Group Investments Inc. (“Naturo” or the “Target”), a privately held company, pursuant to which the Company proposes to purchase all of the issued and outstanding securities of the Target (the “Target Securities”) from the owners of the Target (the “Transaction”). Upon completion of the Transaction, Naturo will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and the Company will carry on the combined business of Naturo and the Company.

BevCanna and Naturo have operated for the past three years under an exclusive partnership, including a master license agreement by which BevCanna has exclusive access to Naturo’s 40,000 sq. ft. state of the art beverage manufacturing facility, pristine on-site alkaline spring water source, 315-acres of land for outdoor cultivation purposes and proprietary Health Canada approved fulvic and humic plant-based mineral formulation. As per Naturo’s latest independent estimate pricing report as of February 2020, Naturo’s enterprise value is between C$38M-C$42M.

The proposed combination will create a unique fully licensed white-label beverage manufacturing and distribution company, with a global multi-channel distribution network of traditional retail and cannabis sales channels. BevCanna will take ownership of the 40,000 sq. ft. beverage facility, and 315-acres of cultivatable land valued at $10.4M, and beverage manufacturing equipment which is valued $3.4M as of year end, and exclusive onsite alkaline spring water source independently valued at $18M. BevCanna will also own the Naturo flagship brand, TRACE, which currently enjoys a leadership position within the Canadian fulvic/humic category and is sold in more than 3,000 Canadian retail stores, with select international agreements and partnerships under review.

Along with their nationally distributed alkaline and sparkling waters, TRACE is expanding its product selection to nutraceuticals and is incorporating additional nutraeceuticals and herbal remedies, including cannabinoids, adaptogens, and nootropics, in domestic and international markets.

For BevCanna, the agreement will eliminate future payment liabilities under BevCanna’s current lease agreement, royalty agreement and manufacturing agreements with Naturo. These eliminated agreements and fees will preserve future working capital and allow BevCanna to direct more resources towards its operations and shareholder value. The proposed company will combine the decades of consumer packaged goods (“CPG”), capital markets, corporate strategy and public company expertise of both operational teams.

“We believe that the joining together of these two companies will be an unbeatable combination,” said Marcello Leone, Founder of Naturo and CEO of BevCanna. “Creating innovative beverages that consumers will love, whether mineral or cannabis-based, wellness-focused or recreational, continues to be our passion. Now we’re at a stage where a business combination will position us to provide incredible value for both organizations and bring two exceptionally experienced teams together, creating one of the largest CPG, cannabis beverage and natural products players in the industry.”

“BevCanna has taken great strides in the past few years and in addition to its commercialized U.S. products, is now on the brink of commercialization across the Canadian market,” said John Campbell, Chief Strategic Officer at BevCanna. “Our exclusive partnership with Naturo has been instrumental in our success and it’s now time to formalize the relationship and bring together the strengths of both companies.”

The Transaction
The LOI provides that the Company will acquire all of the Target Securities outstanding as at the closing (the “Closing”) of the Transaction from the securityholders of the Target (the “Vendors”) in exchange for the issuance of approximately 50,000,000 common shares of the Company (each, a “Consideration Share”) to the Vendors at a deemed price of $0.40 per Consideration Share. The parties have agreed to negotiate and execute a definitive agreement in respect of the Transaction on or before January 22, 2021 which will replace and supersede the LOI.

It is expected that, upon completion of the Transaction, the former securityholders of the Target will own approximately 32% of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company and no new “control block holder” (as such term is used in the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”)) will be created. The board of directors of BevCanna is expected to remain the same following the completion of the Transaction. The Transaction is not expected to constitute a “change of business” or “fundamental change” of the Company in accordance with the policies of the CSE.

Conditions of the Transaction
Completion of the Transaction remains subject to, among other things, satisfactory due diligence by the parties, entry into the definitive agreement, approval of the CSE, if applicable, receipt by BevCanna of a third party valuation of Naturo, approval of the shareholders of each of the Company and Naturo, as applicable, BevCanna having sufficient cash assets at the Closing to operate the combined businesses of the companies; and other conditions which are customary for transactions of this nature.

Some or all of the Consideration Shares issued may be subject to an escrow agreement, to be effective as of the Closing, pursuant to the policies of the CSE. The Transaction will be completed pursuant to available exemptions under applicable legislation. No finder’s fee will be paid in connection with the Transaction. Naturo, which is controlled by Marcello Leone, the CEO of BevCanna, has agreed to exclusively negotiate with BevCanna until the termination of the LOI. Closing of the proposed Transaction is expected to be on or before March 31, 2021.

This news release does not constitute an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy the securities described herein in the United States. The securities described herein have not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”), or any state securities laws and may not be offered or sold in the United States or to the account or benefit of a U.S. person absent an exemption from the registration requirements of such Act.

Completion of the Transaction is subject to a number of conditions, including CSE acceptance. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.

Investors are cautioned that any information released or received with respect to the Transaction may not be accurate or complete and should not be relied upon. Trading in the securities of the Company should be considered highly speculative.
