Everyone always debates the perfect temperature dab for different styles of nails, and at the end of the day, it is all about personal preference. In this article, we are going to be discussing recommended temps for Quartz and Titanium style bangers.
So what is the perfect temperature for dabbing out of a quartz banger? Low temp dabs are always going to be a better bet for quartz bangers. Temps between 400-550 are considered low temp dabs. Your dabs vaporize slower and more evenly and give a 10/10 taste. Hotter temp dabs ranging from 575-700 produce bigger clouds but can alter the flavor and hit you way faster and harder. The higher the temp, the more wear and tear your banger takes, so for quartz, low temp is the way to go.
Low temp dabs are between 400-550 degrees. High temp dabs are between 575 and 700 degrees. Due to titanium being a metallic material, titanium nail heats up quickly and holds heat for a longer amount of time compared to quartz. It is still recommended for flavor and vaporization to hit your dab at a lower temperature. This ensures the vapor is not harsh on your lungs, and you are getting the best results from your concentration.
Temperature control is important. When dabbing at too high temperatures it can burn and alter the taste of your concentrate and can hurt your lungs. When the temperature is controlled and managed, you get a smooth, tasty hit every time.
There are a couple of different ways you can achieve the perfect temperature dab. This includes:
- Temp gun: This is a temperature reading device that you can typically find at the hardware store. It is relatively on the more cost effective side.
- Electric Temp Reader like a dab rite: A dab rite is a laser accurate temperature reading device. This device is typically more on the expensive side but lets you know when your dab is at its perfect temperature.
- Timer: A timer is another cheaper option. You can set your timer for heating time and for cooling time.
- The traditional heat for 30 seconds, cool for 40 seconds: This is one of the oldest tricks in the dabbing book.
The biggest mistake that you can make when trying to achieve the perfect temperature dab is not paying attention. Not paying attention can cause you to overheat, have to reheat because it has cooled, and can be potentially hazardous if you're not careful. So be sure to be mindful when you are torching a banger of any kind.
If you had questions about the perfect temperature dabs, we hope we were able to answer them. Dabbing is a fun, modern, and newly popular way of consumption in the cannabis community, and it is always a great experience when it is done properly.
