Nectar collector, also referred to as dab straw, is a vaporizing tool. It is mostly used to vaporize concentrates, such as wax, sugar, budder, diamond, sauce, and shatter, among others. A nectar collector is alternately known as dab straw due to two reasons. One, it is used for dabbing. Two, it has a tube like structure that resembles and also functions like a straw.
Introduction to Nectar Collector
People refer to it as nectar collector, dab straw, dab rig, or the entire setup as a rig. All these essentially mean the same thing. Nectar collectors are portable vaporizers. The more conventional dab rig is effectively transformed into a smaller and easier to operate nectar collector. It has a pipe like shape, and hence serves as a handy straw. The convenience of using nectar collector outdoors and carrying them around without much effort is at the crux of its growing popularity.
Nectar collectors come in different shapes, sizes, designs, and colors. The mechanism remains similar, or at times identical. The functionalities or features also remain largely unchanged. A nectar collector has a chamber for water. There is a tip. There is a straw or pipe like mouthpiece for users to draw vapor. Most nectar collectors would easily fit into a purse, or backpack. You will need a separate serving dish for the concentrate.
Most nectar collectors have an assembly setup. You would need to put together the pieces to have the device ready to vaporize. You can conveniently disassemble the pieces, clean the integral parts, and store them for later use. Nectar collectors are made of glass, quartz, titanium, and silicone. The water chamber is usually spill proof. Entry level variants may not have an effective spill proof feature. Once disassembled, the parts are not difficult to clean.
How do Nectar Collectors Work
Unlike larger dab rigs, or even bongs and water pipes, nectar collectors don’t come with a bowl for concentrates, or herbs. You would need to use a serving dish. This can be small, medium, or large, depending on where you are and how much concentrate you wish to vaporize at the time. A nectar collector is not heated in the same way as you would dab using a traditional rig. The nail or bowl is not heated. The tip in the nectar collector is heated and it is then dipped into the concentrate on the serving dish.
Since the tip is heated and hence is directly responsible for producing the vapor, titanium is considered to be the most durable and quartz is deemed to be an ideal material for superior quality or flavor of the vapor. Very cheap and small nectar collector kits may contain some plastic parts. These are not amongst the best options available. Glass, quartz, titanium, and silicone, are the more reliable materials for a nectar collector kit.
How to use Nectar Collectors
The specific method may vary depending on the model or type of nectar collector you have. The general practice is to prep the concentrate on a dish. This is similar to how a traditional dab rig is used. Get a lighter or torch, heat the tip of the nectar collector, and dip it into the concentrate. Don’t overheat the tip. Tap or dab a sufficiently hot tip into the concentrate and it would produce vapor. The vapor would travel from the tip through the water chamber to the mouthpiece.
How to Clean a Nectar Collector
Disassemble the nectar collector. Drain the water completely from the chamber. Rinse the outside and inside using warm water. You may submerge the parts into hot water for a more thorough cleaning. Do not avoid rinsing though.
You may also use a solution of salt and alcohol. You can get a sealable bag, pour some salt and alcohol solution, place the nectar collector inside and shake it thoroughly for an effective rinse. You should then rinse with normal water, and then air dry.
