When it comes to dabbing, the accessory choices available can be a bit overwhelming, especially for anyone who is less than experienced with dab rigs. Whether you are shopping for quartz bangers, carb caps or a base, it is important to select one that can supply you with the smoothest experience. Here, we will focus on some of the benefits and purposes of using a carb cap as well as a list of ten carb caps that are perfect for thinner marijuana concentrates like hash oil.

What is a carb cap?

A carb cap acts as a lid for glass, quartz bangers or dab nails. The purpose of a carb cap is to contain both the vapor and the heat so that it is easier to enjoy dabbing at lower temperatures. Directional carb caps will also help to direct the airflow through a dab rig, which can help to get the most benefits from dabbing.

How to use a carb cap

Using a carb cap is a relatively straightforward process, and to help, we have divided each motion into easy to follow steps below:

  1. Heat the nail using a torch.
  2. Apply a small amount of cannabis concentrate on to the nail.
  3. Cover the nail with the carb cap and enhance the effects with spinning in circular motions to improve airflow, as you inhale the vapor.

10 Fantastic carb caps

Which is the best carb cap? Well this will depend on your own personal preferences, and if you were to ask around, the answer would vary dramatically from one person to the next. Some people care about getting the job done on a budget, while others are looking for higher quality or a more enhanced design. In a pinch. A carb cap is not necessary for dabbing, but if you would like to preserve the terpenes which provide a depth of both flavors and smell, then you will need to invest in one at some point.
