How to Smoke Wax or Shatter Without a Rig

Wax gets you super high and is a lot of fun. When you have a nice chunk of wax or shatter and nothing to toke it with can be a little frustrating. Usually wax and shatter are smoked from a oil or dab rig. But if you don’t smoke wax or shatter that often you probably don’t want to spend upwards of $200 for a rig, but its alright. We have went ahead and placed together a few options to smoke your wax or shatter even if you don’t have a rig.

Bong or Glass pipe

By far the easiest way to smoke wax without a rig. For this you are simply going to want to grind your herb¬†and pack your bowl half full of weed, place a small amount of wax on, and then fill the rest of the bowl with weed. Light it up and it should burn through nicely. It will also give a boost to your hit and get you extra high. Keep in mind that the wax flame will keep going after you hit it so you will want to try and finish it in 1 hit or risk wasting some. I wouldn’t recommend using a bong or pipe to smoke wax without weed. Very easy method of smoking wax without using a rig.


Smoking wax in a joint is a great way to go about doing it if you don’t have a rig. All you will need is your wax, weed, rolling papers, and some tobacco if you prefer. A filter is also recommended for this. You can either simply roll your joint how you normally would and twist the wax around it, or just toss it inside the joint while rolling. Make your wax look like a little worm and slide it in or wrap it around. It is recommended to place it inside the joint as twirling it around the outside can cause dripping. Great option for smoking wax without a rig.

Vape pen

A much less alternative to getting a dab rig is a vape pen. You can also use these on the go and they are very discreet. Vape pens can be found in most smoking shops and in a lot of online stores. I have personally used a vape pen to smoke wax a lot and I enjoy the taste and the easiness of it. You won’t get a huge hit out of this like you would a dab rig but its a great option. You may want to spend some time finding the right vape pen for smoking wax if you go for this option.

Hot Knives

A very simple way to smoke wax without a rig, and everybody has the tools to do so. What you will need is your 2 butter knifes, a small torch, or your stove(not recommended), a funnel of some sort, and your wax. What you do is heat up one of your butter knives red hot with your torch, press your wax down on the butter knife with the other one, and breath through the funnel to inhale the smoke. It is a lot easier to do it with another person, but you can get the hang of it after a few tries. I wouldn’t recommend using your stove for this and make sure to have a mat underneath where drippings can fall. I’m not a fan of this because it is quite messy.
