Collection: Dab Nails

What is a dab nail?

A dab nail, also known as a dab banger, is the part of your dab rig where you heat up your concentrates into vapor. You can't use a dab rig without the dab nail! It's absolutely integral to the process. 

How do I heat up my dab nail?

In order to get your dabs to the proper temperature for vaporization to occur, you're going to need to heat up your dab nail anywhere between 400°F and 600°F. Hit the bottom of your dab nail with a butane torch until it gets red hot. Once it obtains that distinct red glow, stop heating it and let it cool for 10-30 seconds, depending on the temperature you're trying to achieve. 

What temperature should I heat my dab nail to? 

One of the most vital things to learn when getting in to smoking dabs is gauging temperature. Everyone has their own preferences, and for many, using the proper temperature can make or break the experience. To make things more simple, let's narrow things down into three standard tiers: Low Temp, Medium Temp, and High Temp

Low Temp Dabs

Generally speaking, temperatures between 400°F and 500°F are considered to be low temperature dabs. The biggest strength of low temp dabs is that they deliver the most flavorful experience, as the low temperatures allow for the highest preservation of flavors and terpenes. The main issue with low temp dabs is that they tend to waste a portion of your wax, as some of the wax in your nail will liquify but won't vaporize. As the old saying goes: "You need to waste it to taste it!"

Medium Temp Dabs

Around 500°F-570°F, you're hitting the medium range for dab temperatures. These temps are a nice middle ground. At these temps, your wax will completely vaporize in your dab nail while still capturing a large portion of the flavor and essence of the wax. You don't really have to worry about burning any of your heat-sensitive terpenes in this range. 

High Temp Dabs

At 570°F-600°F or higher, you're entering the realm of high temperature dabs. The primary reason some people like to do high temp dabs is due to the stronger effects they elicit. Smoking at this range will generate the most amount of smoke, but also has a higher chance...
