If you’re a fan of potent Cannabis Concentrates such as Shatter, Wax, and Live Resin, then dabbing is the ideal method of consumption for you. Dabbing involves vaporizing these extracts at high temperatures to bring out the full potential of the cannabinoids, giving you an incredible psychoactive experience. There are multiple ways to dab, but one of the best is with a Nectar Collector.
Many dabbing enthusiasts use a full-sized Dab Rig to enjoy their favorite cannabis extracts. However, while Dab Rigs are often large and difficult to use, a Nectar Collector is smaller, more convenient, and can give you the same kind of potent psychoactive effects with less hassle. Here’s a guide on what a Nectar Collector is and how to use them.
What Is A Nectar Collector?
A Nectar Collector is a handy portable device that’s designed for dabbing- the method of consumption often used to get the full potential out of various types of cannabis concentrates or extracts. While Dab Rigs or Dab Pens are often used for dabbing, a Nectar Collector is an even smaller device that can give you the same kind of experience.
Also referred to as a Dab Straw or Honey Straw, a Nectar Collector is a portable device usually made out of materials such as glass and silicone. It features a tip that can be heated to vaporize Cannabis Concentrates, as well as a body with a percolator that makes your hits smoother and a mouthpiece to inhale your dab hits.
Using a Nectar Collector instead of a Dab Rig has many advantages. For one, Nectar Collectors are very easy to handle. Even with one hand, you can easily vaporize your dabs, take a hit, and store your Nectar Collector away in your pocket. It’s significantly smaller and lighter than alternative types of devices and this makes it perfect for dabbing while traveling or while you’re on the go.
Another key benefit of using a Nectar Collector is that the tip is fine enough to place directly into your chosen Cannabis Concentrates or dabs. That means that you won’t have to go through the difficulty of heating a Dab Nail and applying a dab to your device with a Dab Tool- instead, you can place the tip of your Nectar Collector directly in your dab container.
How To Use A Nectar Collector
Using a Nectar Collector is fairly quick and easy- much more so than using a Dab Rig. The tip of your Nectar Collector is the part used to vaporize your dabs. Much like with using a Dab Rig, you’ll need a Dab Torch to heat the tip of your Nectar Collector before you apply your chosen dab.
Start by applying the flame of your Dab Torch to the tip of your Nectar Collector until it’s red hot. You can then place the tip of your Nectar Collector to your chosen dab or Cannabis Extract. If you prefer lower-temperature dabs, you might want to allow some time for the tip to cool before doing this.
Your dab will vaporize and you can then inhale slowly through the mouthpiece of your Nectar Collector. Even a single hit can induce powerful effects, although you might want to repeat the process multiple times if you want a stronger high.
Once you’re finished with your Nectar Collector, you can put it away until you’re ready to use it again. You might want to clean your Nectar Collector first in a solution of isopropyl alcohol and salt for around 30-60 minutes. This can help clear away any leftover residue so that your Nectar Collector is clean and ready to use again.
