Black Market Glass: Dab Like a Pro

Our insatiable curiosity and quest for the tastiest Cannabis consumption continues to evolve.

The term “tech” might spark visions of circuit boards and gadgetry, but we like to look at things with a broader perspective. Today, we’ll dive into a type of tech that’s more art than electrical. It’s a tech that terp lovers everywhere can appreciate: the quartz banger.

The terminology and techniques behind bangers have shifted over the years as our insatiable curiosity and quest for the tastiest Cannabis consumption continues to evolve. But Black Market Glass in Portland has kept pace, offering an ever-evolving array of ways to dab like a pro. We checked out three of their latest inventions to see what they have to offer. 


The most petite and practical of the selections, The TerpNado features sandblasted intakes  that funnel flow in a tornado-like fashion. This provides a beautiful spin if you’re so inclined to add pearls or towers. The extra tall chamber also provides plenty of surface area to spread terps, despite the svelte nature of the piece.

For coffee aficionados, this beast is reminiscent of a classic Chemex pour-over. If you’re not familiar, it’s something like a cross between an hourglass and an Erlenmeyer lab beaker. The shape offers five intake holes and a banger base that’s over an inch in diameter. So if you want to go in for a gargantuan glob … this one is for you. 



If you’re looking for a little pizzazz on your next big dab, the Supressed Slurpzilla may be more up your alley. The 5mm-thick walls will retain all the heat you need while the piece’s five micro jets and bottom intakes rip around your resin and provide a massive puff. The intricate beveling of the quartz is as beautiful to behold as this piece is to use!
