High Grade Quartz Dab Nails Versus Titanium Grade Nails
This page will highlight the differences between quartz dab nails, glass dab nails, and titanium / ceramic dab nails.
Let the truth be told, there are a lot of different kinds of Titanium metal nail and cheap dabbing accessories being presented to us medicinal and recreational users as safe and reliable to dab out of, but has anyone really done the research to examine this? For most consumers, the answer is probably not, but the good news is that we at DabFarm.com have done our homework and are here to give you the facts.
The Facts: Why Quartz Dab Nails Are Better Than Titanium Nails
Let’s start with the fact that Titanium, just like any other metal, reaches a certain heating point and then can begin to melt. Before that point however, there is a very high potential for the release of noxious and potentially carcinogenic fumes without us even realizing it is happening (similarly to carbon monoxide poisoning because there is no smell being released). The heat and flame intensity of some torches that medicinal and recreational users are blasting with can also exceed the melting point: 3,034°F (1,668°C); especially if you are using anything larger than a standard size creme brûlée torch. The bottom line is this: Is it really worth leaving the mystery of the alleged grade of titanium that you are vaporizing off of to chance (and gimmicky marketing), or would you rather just keep it all clean and smooth, and use one of our Quartz Bangers made with the finest grade German quartz? (That last question was obviously rhetorical)
Remember when you first discarded the notion of smoking weed out of a potentially toxic metal pipe? Do you recall why? Most likely because it was harsh, tasted very bad, and exposed us to potentially very harmful chemicals if we remember correctly (yes contrary to prior belief and alleged medical research, occasional marijuana users can crystalize some detailed memories). Now with this in mind, it was certainly shocking to have come across this phenomenon we at DabFarm.com refer to as the “Titanium Plague” that had developed in the vaporizing community. Mostly emerging from necessity and desperation to invent something practical to vaporize medical CBD & THC extracts out of, wave after wave of hazardous metal products that clever and crafty snake oil salesman have tried to come up with, have never quite solved our need to make a perfect version of the original nail and dome setup that most consumers have used. They have simply flooded the market with poisonous, low grade, noxious metal products that prevent the average consumer from making the smart and informed choice.
Until NOW! Enter our 100% German Quartz eNails and Quartz Bangers.
It seems like the lazy way out for most of the manufacturers was to revert back to smoking off of industrial grade metal (allegedly referred to as “titatnium”) made in China (and allegedly all made in the U.S.A.). Mostly because it was the easiest to manufacture in bulk by non skilled glass blowers, but the problem is that nobody stopped to check out and verify the quality of the raw materials that are being used! Ultimately, it was the experienced and passionate team at C2 Custom Creations, who through their true life experience for the past 25 years in making safe recreational tobacco smoking products, were able to engineer the finest available 100% High Grade German Quartz Daisy Domeless Nail (now discontinued) to vaporize medical CBD and other recreational THC extracts .
The average titanium nail is mostly concerned with design (to lure you into making a potentially hazardous purchase with a visually pleasing, sharply chiseled, and blingy metal object), but never takes into account how unnatural the vaporizing experience feels, and how much flavor is lost when you add the mystery metal to a beautifully blown piece of glass art. Let’s not forget the potential health ramifications of vaporizing or smoking out of a metal instrument with no high end manufacturing quality control behind it.
DabFarm Premium Quartz E-nails and Quartz Bangers
Let’s take a moment to examine the properties of quartz that make it such a unique material to vaporize off of. As Wikipedia so handily explains to us:
Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth’s continental crust, after feldspar. It is made up of a continuous framework of SiO4 silicon–oxygen tetrahedra, with each oxygen being shared between two tetrahedra, giving an overall formula SiO2.
There are many different varieties of quartz, several of which are semi-precious gemstones. Especially in Europe and the Middle East, varieties of quartz have been since antiquity the most commonly used minerals in the making of jewelry and hardstone carvings.
High grade quartz such as the variety found our premium quartz enail bangers does not even begin to show any signs of melting until well over 3,000 degrees F, so there is absolutely no chance that your standard, or even extra large, dab torch would even ruffle it’s feathers.
With that kind of attention to detail, quality materials and a safety-in -vaporizing approach, our quartz dab nails and accessories are truly at the the top of line! If you haven’t tried one yet for yourself, you have not been dabbing like a boss to your fullest potential and getting the absolute most flavor and deliciousness out of those terps in your cannabis and CBD oil.
