Dabbing is a relatively new activity in the toker world; at least when it comes to “mainstream” toker acceptance. This has caused a flood of dabbing products to hit the market, so many that it can be confusing as to what you need for the activity.

One of the key components to dabbing is the nail. There are three main types of nails, in terms of the material they are made from. Each has its uses, depending on your needs.


Ceramic Nails

Ceramic nails are the newest material on the market for nails. They hold their heat very well and provide cleaner tasting hits. It’s important to heat ceramic nails evenly or they can crack or break. It’s also important to be careful with domeless ceramic nails; the possibility of burning yourself on the nail is very real.


Titanium Nails

Nails made from titanium are very popular. They can withstand high temperatures and hold their heat fairly well. Again, if your nail does not have a dome, make sure that you don’t touch a hot nail. Titanium nails are also favored because they heat up quickly.


Quartz Nails

Quartz nails are popular with those who don’t want to incur the expense of titanium nails. Since they are cheaper, they are also slower to heat up and don’t hold their heat as long, but they do provide clean tasting hits.


As mentioned above, you can either go with a nail and a dome, or just a nail. Domes are used mainly to protect dabbers from burning themselves, but they also gather the dab hit for inhalation. Make sure you know what you are looking for and what will fit your needs before you start buying your dabbing materials.
