Dab Straws & Nectar Collectors
Nectar collectors were inspired by nature's pollinators.
Sometimes, these dabbing devices have water filters. The simpler versions, honey straws, are little more than a pipe. The end of the straw has a heat-resistant surface, usually made from glass or titanium. The nectar collector tips are heated until hot enough to vaporize and suck up the sweet wax nectar from cannabis concentrates.
The honey straw is a great way to conserve your wax and regulate the amount you are dabbing. It is a perfect addition to your kit if you enjoy using concentrates.
Heatproof materials such as borosilicate glass, titanium, and silicone are commonly used.
Some honey pipes include a water bubbler to add water filtration. This cools the vapor, allowing for more significant clouds and large hits. Others are simple glass or silicone staws with a titanium tip. Many mini nectar collector kits come in a small carry case for use on the go and share with friends. If you enjoy dabbing, this is more convenient and cheaper than a dab rig.
How to use a nectar collector?
These handy tools are an easy and affordable way to dab oil and wax.
They often come with a glass, titanium, or ceramic tip.
To use them:
1) Heat the tip with a butane torch until it glows.
2) Place the tip on your cannabis wax, such as budder, terp sauce, or rosin.
3) As the hot tip of the honey straw melts and vaporizes the wax, inhale the vapor from the mouthpiece and enjoy.
It is recommended to use a separate container for the wax you want to dab. Alternatively, place the wax you wish to dab on a dab tool or dab mat. Don't hold the hot tip over yourself. The melting wax could drip off and burn you.
Do nectar collectors waste wax?
Honey Straws are a super efficient way to dab your wax concentrates.
They leave some residue as the vapor cools inside them. But with careful cleaning, you can reclaim all that goodness to use again. This means there is very little wastage, one of the main benefits of dab straws. Other nectar collector benefits include the small size and low cost of these devices. They offer a cheap way to consume concentrates. However, these devices do have a high learning curve and need some confidence in using a butane torch and dabbing.
How to get reclaim out of a nectar collector?
Reclaim is the concentrated build-up of vapor residue. After using your honey straw, you will notice a waxy residue left behind.
When the vaporized wax cools, it leaves tiny particles inside your device. As these build up, they can clog and impair the airflow in your device. They can also impart a burnt or charred taste to the vapor as it passes through your device.
In glass and metal vapor straws, the reclaim is collected by slowly heating the device with a torch while tilting it at an angle. The torch's heat will melt the wax. This wax will run down the device and drip out of the end.
Do not heat the silicon parts with a torch. They will disform and melt under the direct heat of a butane torch. Also, note that isopropyl alcohol-based cleaners should not be used with silicone as they can break down the chemical bond of the material and weaken it
We recommend using a silicon mat and container when collecting the reclaim. This will prevent hot wax from dripping on you and make collecting and storing the reclaim easier. Please take care of any hot items to avoid burning yourself.
Types of nectar collectors
Honey straws come in many different shapes, sizes, and materials. Some variations are just aesthetic and don't change the device's function. Others change the way you use the device and the taste of the concentrates you are dabbing.
Silicone nectar collectors
Silicone honey straws are one of the newest types of collectors.
A silicone collector is affordable and suitable if you're on a budget. They are virtually indestructible, so if you're clumsy, you needn't worry when using a silicone honey straw. Silicon is flexible and resistant to heat shock. You can freeze your silicone dab collector, so the low temperature cools the smoke and brings a smoother dabbing experience.
Silicon collectors have a glass or, more commonly, titanium nail, which is the part you heat up with a torch.
Water nectar collectors
These collectors come with a sturdy water chamber, often made of glass, with a percolator to function as a filtration system. Water is added to the chamber to cool the vapor so you can take massive, flavorful dabs without irritating your throat. The parts of these collectors are usually detachable for easy cleaning.
Glass nectar collectors
Glass nectar straws are the most common type of dabbing device and are what many will think of when you say honey straws. The reason glass is so popular is that it doesn't alter or affect the taste of your dabs.
This means you will get the purest taste from your wax concentrates as the vapor slides up your honey pipe.
Glass also offers countless aesthetical possibilities, meaning there's a vast range to choose from. Of course, extra care will be needed with glass nectar collectors as drops can easily break or chip the glass. These are great for use at home but far from ideal if you want something to use on the go.
Wooden nectar collectors
Wooden nectar straws typically have a titanium nail and a wooden body. These are usually detachable for easy cleaning. A wooden sheath can cover the nail, leaving you with a cigar-sized wooden baton that protects the straw when traveling.
The smooth wood finish gives a luxurious feel to the hand and gives a natural touch to your dabbing kit. One of the best and most aesthetically pleasing honey straws for easy dabbing on the go or throwing in your travel pack.
Electric nectar collector
If you want a more convenient experience while dabbing, electric nectar collectors are an ideal option.
These nectar collectors use a built-in battery that heats a dab coil. This is generally a ceramic or quartz tip like those used on the LOOKAH devices.
This means you no longer need to carry a torch and can conveniently dab on the go.
These devices are also more user-friendly and bring dab straws into the 21st century.
Nectar collector dab nails
This is the end of the device that will be heated with a butane torch until hot and then used to vaporize the wax. So, the dab nail on a dab collector must be heatproof while retaining heat. Titanium nails are the most common as they are very durable. Many dab straws or honey straws use a borosilicate glass dab nail. These glass dab straws are also heatproof, easy to clean, and retain the heat well. The downside to glass dab nails is they are not durable and can break easily if dropped. Ceramic dab nails are less common. While they retain the heat well and are more durable than glass, they aren't nearly as strong as quartz or titanium and can chip if dropped or crack if overheated.
