How To Use A Nectar Collector
If you enjoy smoking concentrates and live in a dry climate, then a nectar collector is an easy way to get the most out of your flowers. It’s also a great way to use your leftover blossom that wouldn’t otherwise be smoked or vaped. Here are the steps for how to use a nectar collector:
Before you begin to use the nectar collector, make sure that it is completely cool.
Before you begin to use the nectar collector, make sure that it is completely cool. The nectar collector should never be used when it is hot, cold, wet or dry; in addition to being a safety hazard, using a nectar collector under these conditions will render the device ineffective.
If the nectar collector is dirty and needs cleaning before using it for collecting honey, follow these steps:
Lay down a protective surface before using a nectar collector.
Although you are probably anxious to start harvesting nectar, it is important to lay down a protective surface before using your nectar collector. You can use a sheet or blanket, but avoid using your bed or couch as they will get dirty. If you have a special piece of furniture that is not used every day and can easily clean, then feel free to use it instead of the floor. Finally, do not use any table that has value because collecting nectar may cause damage if its underside becomes stained with resin or other substances from the plant material inside the jar.
Fill your base with water.
You’ll need to fill your base with water. The water level should be at least half way up the base, and 2 inches deep (or more) is ideal. To figure out how much nectar you can collect in a day, use this formula:
- Collecting Capacity = Base Diameter x Average Nector Collector Collection Rate x 1440 Minutes per Day
For example, if your collector has a diameter of 6 inches and you’re collecting at an average rate of 10 ml/minute (this would be considered a high harvest rate), then your daily collection capacity would be:
- 6 x 10 ml/min x 1440 min/day = 84 ml/day
Heat your tip with a handheld torch.
Do not use a lighter to heat your tip.
Do not use a stove.
Do not use a blowtorch.
Do not use a butane torch, as these are often designed for larger jobs like welding and cutting metal and will likely be too large to be used effectively on a glass pipe’s small surface area.
Make sure not to overheat the tip of your nectar collector.
The tip of your nectar collector should be heated to a temperature sufficient to melt the honey and release it from the bee’s body without burning it. If you overheat the tip, this can cause it to warp or even break the glass. The best way to avoid overheating is to watch how long you heat up each section of your collector before moving on to another section.
When heating beeswax, don’t use a candle; instead use an alcohol lamp which has been kept lit for several minutes so that it will produce higher temperatures than a candle would give off. This can help prevent overheating or warping of your tool
Once your water begins to boil, take a hit.
Once your water begins to boil, take a hit. Usually, this means gently inhaling the vapor into your mouth and then exhaling it through the tip of your nectar collector. Do not overheat the tip of your nectar collector as it can cause breakage or even a fire! Take two or three hits before dipping again if you need more than one hit in between dips. This is where experience comes into play: knowing how much time has passed and how many hits you’ve taken prior to each dip will help keep things on track.
Take two or three hits before dipping the tip again.
A good rule of thumb is to take two or three hits before dipping the tip again. You’ll want to make sure you don’t overheat the tip, as this can cause it to burn or even char. You also don’t want to burn the base of your Nectar Collector by overfilling it with water. It’s important that you don’t burn yourself either, so always use caution when putting on or taking off a collector’s mouthpiece, especially if you have wet hands!
It’s also important not to inhale too much vapour at once; otherwise it could irritate your throat and lungs (which can lead to coughing). Taking one big hit is generally bad practice because it means you’re taking in more THC than necessary for that session! Most people prefer smaller hits throughout their session rather than one large one.”
Nectar collectors are an easy and effective way to smoke concentrates
Nectar collectors are a great way to smoke concentrates. They’re easy to use and effective. All you need is the right nectar collector and a dabbing rig, then you can start dabbing concentrates at home.
You can use a nectar collector to smoke concentrates. You should heat the tip with a torch and take two or three hits before dipping it again. Make sure not to overheat the tip of your nectar collector as this may cause damage. Once your water begins to boil, take a hit and enjoy!
