Nectar Collectors 101

With so many new trendy ways to smoke cannabis concentrates, it’s a little hard to keep up! However, if you are looking to take your smoking experience to a higher level, you might want to consider this unique vertical-vaporizing style of dabbing with nectar collectors. Nectar collectors have only been around for a few years now, but contain some very special characteristics that make them a little different from dab rigs and oil rigs. Nectar collectors are portable but are not considered hand pipes, they vaporize but aren’t vaporizers, and can use water but are not exactly bubblers or water pipes. This versatile tool is gaining a lot of popularity in the stoner community because of their ease of use and various styles, and in this article we’ll dive into more of why.

Structure

Similar to most glass pipes, nectar collectors are composed of a neck, body, and tip which can be made of glass or quartz (mineral created from silicon and oxygen). The neck is where you can inhale the vapors from and are typically detachable to connect to a joint using keck clips to hold them together. “Dry” nectar collectors (also known as wands), tend to have a straight body for the smoke to travel through and does not require a chamber or water to use at all. “Wet” nectar collectors contain a body as well as a chamber that require water to be filled. Generally, it’s definitely a good tip to remember to detach the neck from the joint before filling the chamber up with water to avoid water getting trapped in the joint when using a wet collector. Dry collectors are typically more convenient because they don’t require water and don’t need to stay in a vertical position to avoid water spillage.


How to Use a Nectar Collector

It may appear intimidating to some, but it’s actually a lot easier to use than one may think. To get your nectar collector going, you will only need a torch and a oil container or dab mat as long as it is heat-resistant. If you have a wet collector, fill the chamber with water a little less than halfway. If it’s a dry collector, skip to next step. Next, you will want to heat your tip with a torch until it reaches a scorching red hot. Set your concentrate on your heat-resistant surface and press the tip of the pipe lightly against the concentrate and inhale from the mouthpiece! You can even submerge the tip into the concentrate if you wish. Yup...it’s that easy. Instead of using a nail attached to the piece for a bong, nectar collectors utilize heating the tip of the pipe to vaporize the concentrates. This creates the perfect smoking experience packed with strong, tasty flavor you can keep ripping from the pipe as desired until the tip needs to be reheated again.
