Dabbers use handheld crème brûlée style torches as a mobile external heat source to rapidly raise titanium, quartz or ceramic nails and bangers to peak optimal temperature for flash vaporizing doses of cannabis concentrates through flash sublimation. Butane- and propane-fueled micro torches provide precise directional heating control compared to using traditional open flame lighters or hemp wicks. Once the chosen nail or banger becomes red hot at around 400-800°F, the torch flame gets extinguished and concentrate applied directly onto the glowing nail's hot surface where compounds instantly transform into inhalable vapors. Determining ideal timing and heating technique consistently takes practice and experience. Igniting highly flammable and volatile compounds necessitates exercising abundant caution and common sense when handling any torch, given potential fire and burn hazards. While torches effectively enable traditional dabbing rituals, next generation electronic e-nail and induction heating rigs now offer torch-free high tech alternatives for discerning concentrate enthusiasts seeking greater customization, discretion, or overall convenience.
