Benefits of using carb caps

  • by

This essential tool helps make using dabbing in lower temperatures much more efficient providing a smoother tasty, and more enjoyable experience than could otherwise be attained. What is a carb-cap, what is it, and exactly how can it impact how dabbing is done?

Carb caps are an instrument for dabbing that comes in a variety of shapes, colors, styles and sizes. All constructed from heat-resistant materials such as glass, quartz and titanium. Carb caps cover the bucket using bangers or nails after the dab is dropped into it, and work similar to a lid for the saucepot. This accessory enhances airflow and convection to effectively vaporize cannabis oil at the lowest temperature.

Different carb caps work with different nail types, but choosing the right one is a breeze. No matter if you’ve got an eNail with a flat top or an eNail nail or terp slurp there’s a cap that is specifically made for each!

The benefits of the use of carb caps

Carb caps improve the enjoyment of dabbing, giving you the tastiest, most terpene rich dabs you can get.

Air circulation and control improved

Caps for carbs control airflow by controlling airflow through the cap or limiting it with nails such as the terp or slurp. Caps can cause pressure in the bucket of nail to decrease and this in turn reduces the boiling point of the concentrate.

Heat retention

Carb caps are crucial to maintain the temperature of your nail. Inexperienced users often get their nails heated to extreme temperatures, which can be damaging to the longevity of terpenes and cannabinoids. When you dab at lower temperatures (300-400 temperatures) will preserve the desired flavor scent, aroma, and effects. If you dab at lower temperatures, the carb caps assist to keep heat in place so that you don’t get left with the appearance of a puddle.

Waste reduction

Since carb caps aid in heat retention, it’s simpler to ensure that you get the most the concentrates. Instead of being left with an oil puddle on the bottom of the nail a carb cap will let to ensure that you are able to vape the maximum amount. Certain of the latest carb cap designs, for instance ones that permit an airflow that is directional, permit you to be more efficient, directing the heat to all the corners of your nail, making sure that nothing is wasted.

Car caps are of different types

All carb caps are constructed from heat-resistant materials such as glass, quartz or titanium. Carb caps vary from flat-top, basic designs to more innovative models that can be used with certain nails. Each cap comes with its own unique purpose and design. Examples of different styles include:

Direct Airflow Cap

The directional carb cap, often called spinner caps, come with a carb hole as well as an angled tube that runs through the cap. Directional flow carb caps form the proper seal around the nail. If swiveled or rotated they are able to guide the oil (and the terp pearls) on the dabbing surface to improve the vaporization.

Bubble Carb Cap

Bubble carb caps give users the most precise control of airflow thanks to their huge carb stem as well as ball-and-socket-style design. They are particularly suitable for nails with a flat top.

Universal Carb Caps

Universal carb caps have hollow domes that can be placed on top of oddly-shaped nails such as e-nails, castle-style nails and the majority of domeless nails.
