How to use a Silicone Nectar Collector

How to use a Silicone Nectar Collector

One of the most overlooked pieces of dabbing equipment is a silicone nectar collector. Often sold by various names depending on the seller, these simple dab straws allow for a relatively safe dabbing experience.

Depending on the type of nail you are using to dab – Ceramic, Titanium, Quartz – you have the ability to tailor your oil vaporization experience to your exact preferences.

Ceramic dab tips are generally reserved for the true connoisseur.

With silicone, we recommended using a GR2 Titanium Nail as it will provide the easiest use and longest durability. Quartz is an excellent choice in both glass nectar collectors as well as a silicone replacement tip.

To use your silicone nectar collector, follow these simple steps:

  1. Remove the protective end cap, this cap can be used as your concentrate dish later.
  2. Place the 14mm Titanium nail into the wide end of the nectar collector. The large end should seat firmly into the body of the nectar collector.
    -Please note that some nails will need to be pushed into the body further than others-
  3. Test that the tip and secure and begin heating the end of the dab nail with a butane torch, such as the Blazer Dab Torch for larger 14mm sizes.
  4. When your tip is adequately hot, lightly place the side of the nail against your herbal concentrate. Be careful not to truly use your nectar collector as a ‘straw’ and suck up large amounts of hot dabs! You only need the side or edge to touch the oil for full effect.
  5. Gently place the nectar collector on its side and allow it to cool, be sure the hot nail cannot damage any surrounding material such as the countertop. The use of a silicone mat is recommended.
