What are quartz inserts?

Quartz inserts are dabbing accessories, typically spherical shaped balls, but these days come in various shapes and sizes. These accessories are used inside a banger of your choice for spinning to create maximum airflow and evenly distribute your dabs and heat.

Benefits of using a quartz insert

There are many benefits to using Quartz Inserts, mainly being even distribution, heat retention, and flavor, but they can be beneficial for other reasons as well when it comes to our personal preferences.

  1. Enhanced Flavor: Inserts spin causing even distribution and enhanced flavor. 
  2. Increased Vaporization: When your product is evenly distributed and heated, you get maximum vaporization.
  3. Improved Heat Retention: The spinning function causes heat to be evenly distributed therefore causing better and longer lasting heat retention. 
  4. Visual Enhancement: Quartz inserts can be visually and aesthetically pleasing to the eye.
  5. Customizable Options: Inserts can come in various shapes, sizes, colors, and styles to fit your personality and match your glass.
  6. Easy to Clean: Inserts are easy to clean simply by soaking them in ISO or a cleaning solution and wiping them off. It's that simple. 
  7. Affordable and Accessible: Quartz inserts are cost-effective and easily accessible to everyone when you shop with Honeybee Herb.

How Do You Use a Quartz Insert?

Quartz inserts are a huge phenomenon in the dabbing world. Here are two different methods of using a quartz insert.

Drop-in Method

The Drop-in-method is when you heat your banger and allow it to cool to your desired temperature and then add your quartz inserts to the banger of your choice. This ensures the insert doesn't get too hot too quickly.

Reheat Method

You can also already have your quartz insert placed in your banger. Then you would heat and drop your dab as normal. Just be sure not to overheat, as overheating can cause your inserts to break down over time.
