They also require little to no setup compared to traditional methods of dabbing with a glass rig and butane torch.

What is a Dab Pen?

A dab pen, also known as a wax pen or concentrate pen, is a pen-shaped portable vaporizer designed for cannabis concentrates, such as wax, shatter, budder, or other similar products. 

Dab pens are typically small and slender, making them easy to carry and use discreetly. They consist of a battery or power source and a heating element, often made of ceramic or quartz, which heats the concentrate to the point of vaporization. When you activate the device, the heating element heats up, turning the concentrate into vapor that can be inhaled through the dab pen’s mouthpiece.

Other Common Names for Dab Pens:

  • Wax Pen
  • Concentrate Pen
  • Dab Straw
  • Vape Pen
  • Penvape
  • THC Pen

The History & Evolution of Dab Pens:

The history of dab pens is a relatively recent chapter in the ever-evolving story of cannabis consumption. While the use of cannabis dates back thousands of years, the development of dab pens as we know them today is a product of the 21st century. 

The early 2000s saw the emergence of cannabis concentrates like wax, shatter, and oils, which paved the way for the need for a more discreet and portable consumption method. In response to this demand, the first dab pens were born, offering a compact and convenient way to vaporize concentrates without the need for traditional dab rigs and elaborate setups. These early vaporizer models were often rudimentary and lacked the advanced features we now see in modern dab pens. 

Ceramic and quartz heating chambers are the standard in most dab pens nowadays as they conserve the flavors of your concentrates better than other materials. Likewise, heating elements that heat the chamber from all sides are increasing in popularity, as opposed to just the bottom. We’re also witnessing an end to the era of dual-function dab pens that offer compatibility with both flower and concentrates. 

As technology and consumer demand continued to advance, dab pens evolved to become more efficient, user-friendly, and stylish, making them a popular choice among concentrate enthusiasts today. Nowadays, dab pens are an integral part of the cannabis landscape, reflecting the ongoing innovation in both cannabis products and vaping technology.

Key Features of Dab Pens:

Compact Design:

First and foremost, the portability and compact shape of modern dab pens make them ideal for on-the-go use, fitting comfortably in your pocket or bag. They can also be easily concealed in the palm of your hand while in use.

Rechargeable Battery:

Dab pens often feature a rechargeable battery, offering long-lasting power for multiple sessions. Most batteries can be recharged quickly with any nearby USB Port!

Heating Element/Atomizer:

Dab pens are typically equipped with a heating element/atomizer made of ceramic or quartz. These are replaceable and should be replaced any time your concentrates begin to develop a burnt or harsh taste. 

Temperature Control:

Many modern dab pens incorporate variable voltage heat settings, allowing users to switch between preset heat settings optimized for wax concentrates. Higher heat settings result in bigger clouds while lower heat preserves flavors. 

Single Button Controls:

Dab pens are remarkably user-friendly, with the ability to turn the unit on/off and switch temperatures using a single button.

Types of Dab Pens:

Standard Dab Pens:

As mentioned previously, dab pens include all vaporizer pens that are designed for concentrate consumption. They include a battery or power source, and a heating element or atomizer to heat your materials. This type of dab pen encompasses the more specific categories below and any other vape pen made for wax concentrates.

Nectar Collector Dab Pens:

Nectar collector dab pens, also known as electric dab straws, represent a distinct and innovative category within the world of dab pens. With an electric nectar collector, there’s no need to load your concentrates inside of a chamber. Instead, you simply dip the heated atomizer tip directly into your concentrates while simultaneously inhaling from the mouthpiece like a straw. Nectar collector dab pens can be easily identified by their exposed atomizer. 

510 Thread Dab Pens:

510 thread dab pens have become a popular choice for dabbing enthusiasts, thanks to their compatibility with a wide range of cartridges and accessories. These dab pens feature 510 threaded connections, which is a standardized thread size widely used in the vaping industry. This universal compatibility allows users to easily swap between different store-bought cartridges and tanks, making it a more versatile option. You can use the filters on our collection page below to view dab pens that feature 510 threading.
