What do bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and you have in common? Besides being freakin’ adorable, you are all after that sweet, sweet stuff. Unfortunately, the human body does not come with a built-in drinking straw for wax concentrates, but the brilliance of the human mind has overcome that obstacle by inventing a device that allows you to dab absolutely anywhere.
🤷 What are nectar collectors? Nectar collectors are an extremely portable way to dab in style, plus their unique design and method of use will impress your friends and pique their curiosity. They are a type of water pipe, so they offer some of the filtration and cooling benefits of dab rigs in a smaller package. Nectar collectors consist of 3 main parts that are easy to take apart and put back together.
⚙️ Parts of a nectar collector
Bubble chamber: The largest piece. This goes in the middle and you fill it up with water through which your dabbing vapors will pass as they travel to the mouthpiece.
Mouthpiece: Just like any dabbing device, the mouthpiece is simply where you put your lips and suck in the vapors.
Tip: If this were a real hummingbird, the tip is basically the beak. Compared to dab rigs, the tip is essentially the nail. These are made of quartz or titanium rather than glass because they need to be heated up to very high temperatures right before they are dipped into the wax.
