DEFINE: Banger

A banger is a slider for an oil dab rig used to vaporize your wax, shatter, rosin, or other cannabis concentrates. They’re usually made of glass or quartz, but can also be composed using ceramic or titanium

Bangers are typically made out of glass in order to withstand the high temperatures needed to heat the concentrate. The banger functions as an attachment to the rig.

Bangers normally come with the rig but can also be purchased separately. If you choose to purchase just a banger, be sure that it fits snuggly into the neck of your rig. Properly dabbing requires a tight seal. To hit a dab with a banger, you must first heat the banger with a torch for about thirty seconds to one minute. Once the banger reaches the proper temperature, use a dabber to drop the concentrate into the banger. 

How do I use it in a sentence?

“My dumb ass touched the banger when it was still hot.”
