Smoking dabs 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 potential drawbacks to dabbing, too. Among other problems, you have to use a butane torch to heat the nail that comes with your dab rig. It has to be extremely hot before the concentrate 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 eNail is for. This electric device takes almost all the danger out of dabbing, and replaces it with a simple, effective tool for taking dabs.
Yo Dabba Dabba’s classic eNail can satisfy beginner or experienced dabbers with its 120w 3-wrap coil powered by a 90-150 volt digital display control box. This perfect pairing comes with a six-month and one-year warranty for the heating cord and control box, respectively, to protect your device from any manufacturer error. Proper care and use can extend its longevity by years or decades.
Its 4ft cord is the ideal length to keep it powered and avoid any tripping. The Classic eNail comes with a 20mm coil and a forged titanium nail with a 1-inch dish with a raised center. The digital display control box allows you to manually set the nail’s temperature between 0ºF and 1200ºF. An auto turn-on feature heats the nail to 710ºF.
Why Buy the Yo Dabba Dabba eNail?
Yo Dabba Dabba’s Classic eNail boasts a wealth of innovative features that are easy to use, no matter what experience level. This eNail gives you an unbridled capability to heat your concentrates at whatever temperature you wish, whether you like scorching hot or low-temperature dabs.
For first-time users, the Classic eNail has a sort of “set it and forget it” ethos. Simply turn it on using its auto turn-on feature and have a low-temperature dab (usually between 500 and 650ºF). Low-to-medium temperature dabs are favored by some for their ability to not burn away terpenes. Terpenes have a lower boiling point than cannabinoids like THC or CBD.
How does it work?
There are several components to this cannabis tool. There’s the nail, a heating coil that is wrapped around the nail, an electric box that powers the coil, and cord to power it up.
We should note that the nail element comes in either titanium, or as a titanium-quartz hybrid. We recommend using the hybrid model, as this allows you to use the conduction of the titanium metal, while enjoying the superior flavor profile of the quartz nail.
Here’s how to use it.
1. Connect the eNail up to your rig
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 element (you’ll have to disassemble the nail first, then reassemble it with the coil in place).
2. Set your desired temperature
Then, 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, depending on your personal preference. It’s usually best to stick to the low end or the middle of this range, since low temperature dabs are preferable to high temperatures ones that diminish the flavor and aroma.
3. Dab at your convenience
Once the device is set to the optimal temperature and has had a chance to heat up, you’re ready to dab at your leisure.
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.
