Where would we be without seasoning? If people didn’t collectively eat a bunch of random plants scattered around the planet, our food would suck, we’d still be savagely ripping into beasts that roam the wilderness and bears or hippos would still be our biggest enemies, not our politicians. Properly seasoned food tastes better and in similar sense, seasoning a titanium nail helps your dabs not taste like you’re licking the side of a PBR can.
Seasoning food is different in the sense it refers to actual process of mixing fresh or dehydrated herbs into your dishes. Properly seasoning your nail is a bit like seasoning a cast iron pan although it’s not nearly as involved. Seasoning cast iron adds to the durability - though titanium is already more durable and less reactive, it still adds a poor flavor if unseasoned.
Follow the steps below to quickly and effective season a titanium nail.
There are two ways to effectively season a nail – an express method using only water (that’s not exactly seasoning) and a method using oil, which is similar in principle to seasoning cast iron. For the first step in either process, get yourself a titanium nail – most designs are universal, unless you have a whack rig.
Unlike a cast iron, you’re best not to use olive oil because it’s too viscous and titanium is far less porous. You can use an expensive THC oil but that’s considered a waste. Instead, use coconut oil of the cooking variety (not a body lotion), hemp oil, or CBD oil.
Congratulations – dabs from your nail won’t leave a metal butt taste in your mouth.
Really? The above process is quick and painless but if you’re super lazy, try this method.
Now you have a clean nail. Fun fact: the second process takes about the same amount of time.
