Types of carb caps

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

Carb caps are dab tools that are available in various shapes, colors, styles and sizes. They are all constructed of heat-resistant materials, such as glass, quartz and titanium. Carb caps cover the bucket with the nail or banger once the dab is dropped into it, and work similar to a lid for the saucepot. This accessory enhances airflow and convection to ensure that cannabis oil is vaporized at the lowest temperature.

Different carb caps work with different nail types, but getting the perfect 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 specifically designed for each!

The benefits of the use of carb caps

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

Air circulation and control improved

Caps with carbs allow airflow control by redirecting airflow through the cap or restricting it when used 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 vital to maintain the temperature of your nail. A lot of novice users increase the temperature of their nail to dangerous temperatures that are harmful to the protection of terpenes and cannabinoids. Doing your dabbing with lower temperature (300-400 temperatures) can preserve the desired flavor scent, aroma, and effects. If you dab at lower temperatures, the carb caps assist to hold heat, so you’re not left with an evaporation.

Waste reduction

Since carb caps aid in the retention of heat, it’s much easier to ensure that you are getting every drop from your concentrates. Instead of being left with an oily 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 the flow of air in a directional direction, enable you to be more efficient, directing the heat to every inch of your nail to ensure that nothing is wasted.

Car caps of various types

Carb caps are all made out of heat-resistant substances like glass, quartz, or titanium. Carb caps range from basic, flat-topped designs to more unique designs that are designed to be used with certain nails. Each cap comes with its own unique purpose and style. Examples of different styles include:

Direct Airflow Cap

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

Bubble Carb Cap

Bubble carb caps give users the greatest control over airflow due to their huge carb stem as well as ball-and-socket-style design. They are particularly suitable for nail heads with flat tops.

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.
