What’s the best temperature to set it at?

Everyone has a different temperature that they go by. Personally I like to keep it at around 750 degrees F. You can put it up more if you’re going for bigger hits. If you want to see your oil bubble up go ahead and turn it down a bit. Use a carb cap for those really low temp hits for full flavor.

So where can I get one?

After doing some research, I went ahead and ordered one for $149 directly from Puff Tuff since they had the best deal on an enail. It came with a titanium enail, titanium carb cap, coil, and silicone containers to store your concentrate.

To be honest everything came in handy, especially the carb cap.

I’ve had mine for over a year now with absolutely no problem. I even switched to a quartz banger enail and it still works perfectly.

Changing the temperature is pretty easy. Just press down on either the up or down button on the enail box until you reach a temperature you’re comfortable with. Give it a couple of seconds to heat up and you’re ready to go! Enails tend to fully vaporize all your extract evenly without burning it.

Dabbing 101

The three things that you will need to get started is: an oil rig, a nail, and a torch.

Dabbing is really more like vaping in the sense that you don’t want to burn your concentrate.

When choosing your first oil rig, you’re going to want to buy a smaller one with the least amount of percolators. Unlike water pipes for smoking dry herb, you don’t want your vapor to cool off too much.

This can cause reclaim to build inside your oil rig, making it look messy and clog up easier. Most of the things you would look for in a bong would not be ideal for dabbing.

Choosing your Nail

When it comes to picking your nail, you really only have two solid options: quartz bangers and titanium nails. Ceramic nails break eventually due to all the heating and cooling.

Glass nails are not recommended since they don’t hold heat well and have the possibility of cracking while your are heating it.

When heated correctly, your nail should reach a temperature between three and four hundred degrees. You want to vaporize your concentrate not burn it. The four common materials made when producing nails are as follows: quartz, glass, titanium, and ceramic.

While everyone has their personal preference, these four materials are known to be used for dabbing concentrates. Even though different materials each have their own heat up time, they all can be used to vaporize concentrates.


Titanium Nail vs. Quartz Banger

Quartz nails are almost impossible to overheat, though if you let it cool down too much you end up with a puddle of unused material in your dish. Titanium nails are easier to gauge in temperature until you become more comfortable with the torch.

Don’t stress out if you lose a dab the first couple of times, sooner or later dabbing it will become a habit.

As stated before, it all comes down to what you can afford. Quartz is cheaper to manufacturer than titanium, one reason many people choose to start with quartz. Some say titanium stays hot longer and is almost impossible to crack.

Just be careful  not to overheat the nail which can cause you to burn your concentrate, leaving you with a harsh throat hit. When choosing your oil rig, you want to pick one with minimal water diffusion.

Torch

When buying a torch, make sure to purchase one that is meant to hold butane. Most smoke shops carry torches and butane, but if you live somewhere where there are none then Bed Bath & Beyond has a couple of cheap torches you can use.

Also make sure your piece gives you room to torch your nail comfortably.

Using a drop down might help to avoid getting the glass joint on the dab rig too hot. This can cause it to crack the whole oil rig. The next upgrade after a torch would be investing in an e-nail, or even a wax pen for when you’re on the go.

Dome or Domeless Nail?

A domed titanium nail is optimal for your first oil rig. These nails can get extremely hot, so having a dome over it prevents any accidents from happening, such as you touching the nail accidentally or having the nail fall on your carpet. A smaller nails also means less butane is needed to heat it up.

The Scoop on Solventless Wax

Cannabis smokers around the world being turned on to the marijuana extracts. Even though some forms of concentrates, such as hash, have existed for quite some time the decriminalization of marijuana has brought other forms of extracts out into the market.

Butane and CO2 are two popular solvents used to obtain these extracts. The marijuana community has been taken aback by the new flood of “dabbers”.

Cannabis users are making the switch to concentrates once they see the difference in potency. Unlike smoking pot, BHO extracts can reach high levels of purity when it comes to THC content. Just a small “dab” off your oil rig is enough to feel medicated in minutes. When properly purged, BHO is an excellent way to consume marijuana. The trick is purging it right.

So should you make the switch over from butane has oil to solventless? Different people have conflicting opinions. Some say it beats solvent based extracts in terms of purity and taste, while others see at as just another form of concentrate. Our take is that as long as the extract has been purged properly, there should be absolutely nothing to worry about. No solvent should remain in the finished product.

Most extract artists are trained in the art of purging. If you are buying your medicine in a reputable shop from a known source then you are good to go. The real problem occurs when buying it off the street from amateurs who make it at home without the proper equipment.  Some have even caused explosion in their homes when blasting the cannabis, leading to bad publicity for the medical marijuana community.

Banger Carb Cap

Wax has taken over the cannabis industry in the recent years and it’s still going strong. Many states are finally legalizing the use of medical marijuana, giving many more people access to cannabis extracts. As opposed to smoking weed, dabbing let’s you get a quicker and more powerful high. You can also enjoy the full taste from your cannabis extracts without the harsh smoke.

Seasoning your banger nail prepares it for dabbing cannabis extracts. Make sure to cover the inside of your banger nail dish with cannabis extracts and let it vaporize off. Using reclaim can save you some cash if you’d rather not use any of your oil.

Don’t overheat your club banger nail! Quartz bangers heat up quickly and are popular because they retain heat for an extended amount of time. If the quartz banger is red hot, let it cool down until it returns to its normal state before you attempt to dab. Remember that in order to get a low temp hit your oil must vaporize, not burn off, when it touches the quartz club banger.

Get more control of your temperature with a carb cap. After you get your timing right, it is now time to add your club banger carb cap into the picture. Place your carb cap on your quartz club banger once it has cooled. This will trap in the existing heat.

Using a club banger is recommended since they are known to hold heat well. And that is how you take a low temp hit. Pinpoint your temperature by using an enail.

Don’t apply your extract if your quartz banger dish is still too hot. Anywhere from three to four hundred degrees should be a perfect temperature. New trends appear every week in the cannabis community. A low temperature and a carb cap are crucial for low temperature dabs.
