Smoking hash oil is a lot of fun, as anyone who has tried it can attest. The high is strong and long-lasting, the oil can be more economical than bud, and the taste (if it’s done right) is fantastic.
But there are drawbacks to dabbing, too. Among other problems, you have to use a butane torch to heat the nail that comes with your oil rig. It has to be red hot before the oil is dabbed on the nail.
That means holding a torch and blasting blue flame onto your rig. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that’s not the safest setup in the world. So how to solve this dilemma?
That’s what the Yo Dabba Dabba E-Nail is for. This electric device takes almost all the danger out of dabbing, and replaces it with a simple, effective tool for taking dabs.
How does it work?
First, we should note that the E-Nail itself comes in titanium – and that’s what the accompanying machine is designed for. This product won’t do much good on a glass nail, though if you’ve ever used a device like this, you probably already know that.
There are several components to this cannabis tool. There’s the titanium nail, a heating coil that is wrapped around the nail, an electric box that powers the coil, and a few cords.
Connect the E-Nail up
The first step is to connect the power cord to the box and then plug it into a standard U.S. outlet. Next, attach the cord that links the box to the coil. Then position the coil so it’s wrapped around the body of the titanium nail (you’ll have to disassemble the nail first, then reassemble it with the coil in place).
Set your desired temperature
Finally, turn on the box and set the temperature to your liking. The suggested temperature range is between 500 degrees Farenheit and 850 degrees or hotter. It’s usually best to stick to the low end or the middle of this range, since high temperatures can diminish the flavor and aroma of the oil. On the other hand, strong heat may ensure a more complete burn and a better high.
There isn’t a lot of risk to this setup, but you must keep in mind that the coil gets extremely hot – much hotter than your oven. Touching it while heated could cause serious burns, and contact with anything flammable could end badly.
Aside from that, though, this is an effective, useful tool that makes it easier to dab. Because the temperature is consistent once the coil is heated, you get a better burn than you would with a torch.
We highly recommend the Yo Dabba Dabba E-Nail, a piece of high-end technology that lessens the danger and improves the experience of dabbing hash oil. It’s not cheap, but if you have the money to spend, it’s worth the cost.
