My First E-Nail | a cleaner way to dab
A proper e-nail has been on my “in a dream world” wish list for awhile, but with a family of six, it’s been difficult to justify purchasing something as specialized as an e-nail, especially since I don’t consider myself to be an advanced dabber by any means. Thankfully, Kromedome Vapes was kind enough to send their e-nail over my way, and it immediately proved its usefulness for an occasional dabber like me.
In today’s post, I’ll explain what an e-nail is, how it’s used, and how you’re stoner journey can benefit from having this remarkably user-friendly way to consume cannabis concentrates. There’s also a video if you’d like to see an e-nail in action.
What is an E-Nail?
Let’s start from the beginning. Dabbing is a popular method for consuming cannabis concentrates (you can learn more about it here), and it usually involves a dab rig (water pipe) with a nail. A nail is the part of a dab rig that gets torched and it’s also where you place your concentrate when dabbing.
An e-nail refers to an electric nail. Instead of using a torch to heat the nail, an electric nail uses electricity and doesn’t require having tanks of gas or butane onhand for torching. E-nails typically plug into power, and are capable of heating to very high temperatures, in a matter of seconds.
E-nails usually look like a metal coil attached to an insulated whip, which in turn plugs into the power unit. Once on, the e-nail can be set to a specific temperature on the power unit, and the metal coil will begin heating to that temperature.
Why Not a Torch?
Electricity is a cleaner heating method for both the environment and our health. True, torches will always come in handy for the dabber in all of us, but there are many cases that call for a cleaner heating method that doesn’t involve butane.
If you are a medical marijuana patient that consumes a lot of concentrates, an e-nail should probably be your next investment piece. This cleaner heating method allows one to medicate without unnecessary gas and is far more convenient than your standard torch. You also have greater temperature control, a must for true terpene snobs.
Kromedome Microscope & E-Nail in Pictures
Kromedome sent me their e-nail with the Microscope– a beautiful glass rig that resembles, yes, a microscope. It came with a traditional nail (see above) that can be heated with a torch.
Here is the nail. The Kromedome E-Nail comes with two quartz and two titanium Highly Educated hybrid nails.
What I Didn’t Expect
I didn’t expect to find this method of dabbing to feel so much safer, but it definitely does. Something about not having a gigantic flame makes the whole process of dabbing much less intimidating. Using an e-nail is far more discreet and quiet, and it’s a lot easier than the whole, torch it till it’s red process. The Kromedome E-Nail is mom-friendly and makes efficient medicating easy and discreet.
