How To Use A Nectar Collector In 7 Simple Steps + Bonus Review

NECTAR-COLLECTORNectar collectors for the most part, have only been around for the past year or so, but are starting to gain popularity as more and more  people discover this new dynamic method of vaporizing dabs. This new style of dabbing, takes user experience to the next level, by offering a unique vertical vaporizing process that allows  you to gauge your dab intake perfectly every time, without having to worry about excess concentrates being wasted during your hits.

Most nectar collectors on the market today are relatively expensive, ranging in price from $100, of upwards to $1,000, depending on what brand name you buy and which dab accessories come with them. If you’re lucky, you might come across a low priced, yet highly effective nectar collector from an online wholesale smoke shop, but for the most part, they tend to be on the costly side.

At first glance, the nectar collector looks like a probing device from an alien spaceship. The glass body is shaped like a syringe and usually features an embedded percolator, that can be used as a filtration device when water is applied. Accompanying the base are a glass mouthpiece that slides into the top, and a nectar collector titanium tip, that is used unconventionally, as a dab nail. Some nectar collector kits also come equipped with a wax dish, such as this one, that is used as a launch pad, for inserting the titanium tip into finely extracted medical concentrates upon inhalation. The more high end nectar collectors typically come with a rotating metal pivoting stand, that assists in the vertical vaporizing process, once inserted into dabs.

How to Use A Nectar Collector In 7 Simple Steps

             

Step 1: Add Water to the Base

Tip #1: Fill the base slowly with water, making sure that it filled about halfway, allowing for the best percolation.

Tip #2: Make sure that the glass mouthpiece and titanium tip are removed before filling with water so that water won’t get trapped in the tip.

Step 2: Check Water Level

Tip: Make sure water level is a little less than half-way full to allow for optimal percolation.

 Step 3: Add Glass Mouthpiece to Base

Tip: A small amount of joint wax can be applied to the base in order to prevent the mouthpiece from sliding in place during use.

Step 4: Add Nectar Collector Titanium Tip to Base

Tip: Joint wax can be applied as a faint adhesive to the inside of the tip after being heated with a torch, to keep it in place during use.

6″ Mini Nectar Collector 10mm Review

Besides the titanium tip and glass mouthpiece, this nectar collector kit features a wax dish for storing dabs in between hits.The nectar collector itself, is 6 inches in length and has a 10mm sized titanium nail. The design is sleek and clean in appearance, and is made with durable borosilicate glass, which is known for it’s high resistance to extreme heat. The only downside to using this piece is the fact that it doesn’t come with a rotating metal swivel stand, as some of the more high end nectar collectors have, but that aside, this piece does it all. While using this device we experienced no issues during the assembly process and the hits were very clean and filtered thanks to the mini percolator. We filled the water too high the first time, but it was an easy fix. All in all, this nectar collector gets the job done at a fraction of the price that you’d normally pay for your average nectar collector, and it makes for an ideal buy, especially if you’re into dabbing or simply want a cheap alternative to your every day dab rig.

4 Vaporizer Pens for Oil and Wax: Best Buys

vape pens wax oilIn this day and age everything is becoming smaller and more convenient with the help of technology and hash smoking is no different! The “Wax Vape Pen” has come a long way since the introduction of the G Pen and with a seemingly endless number of options available to the consumer today, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the possibilities while trying to avoid cheap, poorly made pens that can be hazardous to your health.

That being said, many of the pens operate in a very similar fashion (passing a charge through a metal coil to create a heating element) so as long as you’re using a trusted supplier, the best pen for you will depend on your level of experience and your vaping preferences.

It comes with 4 different attachments (including one for dry herb though it doesn’t work so great) so you can hit any consistency of full-melting concentrate from the most liquid oil to the must crumbly wax. Like most pens, it has a simple on-off push button operation and a locking mode so the battery doesn’t bleed off in your pocket.

Buttonless Vaporizer Pen

If you prefer to vape liquid oil or one of the many glycerinbuttonless vaporizer pen-suspended concentrates, buttonless vapes are the way to go. All you do is load on your pre-filled cartridge and puff away like a cigarette, it automatically turns on and starts vaporizing. It’s an elegant and discreet way to to get medicated.

Micro G Pen Vaporizer

The Micro G is roughly half the length of most other vape pens and though it has a shorter battery life, it has a healthy sized bowl and is even more discreet and convenient than the classic G pen. When stealth is your number 1 priority, this is what you’re looking for.

710 Vaporizer Pen ARK Kit

If the wax vape pen is your vaporization method of choice, then you’re going to want something a little more rugged and fine-tuned to suit your heavier use. The 710 Vaporizer Pen ARK kit contains both the original 710 Mini Battery and the 710 Nano Battery (one for home, one on the go) as well as liquid cartridges and glass domes for each. The large, metal bowls are of the highest quality and make hitting wax or shatter simple without having to worry about a wick. The glass dome ensures you won’t get that nasty “plastic” taste and makes it easy to see how cooked your bowl is (or if you’re spilling). 710-vaporizer-pen-ark-kitMost impressive though, is the heat up time. For so many metal components, these pens manage to heat up in a matter of seconds and the battery can easily last an entire day+ at a time with regular use (better than your smartphone!).

Whether you’re just starting out or you’re looking to upgrade your current setup, there’s bound to be a pen out there for you! Always remember to use a reliable source when purchasing a vaporizer!
