History of the Nectar Collector

The nectar collector has changed the way smokers enjoy dabbing. Let’s take a look at how this nifty dabbing device was made.

The conception

The creators initially made the first ever nectar collector using glass pipettes from a local chemistry shop. The design was rugged but achieved its goal: to simplify the concept of dabbing. In 2011, Jefe Zobell visited Kristian Merwin and brought up the idea of a vaporizer for vertical dabs in a spill-proof design. Kristian immediately jumped to the plan and spent months perfecting the design.

One day Kristian sat down and was drawing up his idea. The concept was to make a vaporizer with a water-cooling chamber. After almost an hour of drawing, Kristian immediately went to his shop and started to create the first ever spill-proof nectar collector.

The concept

Kristian’s concept was that you dab the nectar collector directly to your concentrate. Unlike dab rigs where you put an entire dab on the nail or banger, the nectar collector vaporizes the oil it comes in contact with. This way you get to control your dabs, and you don’t waste any products.

Improvements

From a simple dab straw, Kristian improved the design to a 3-piece dabbing tool. The body houses a percolator which helps provide you with smooth and cool dabs. You can get a standard kit, or buy different parts and design your own style of nectar collector.

Electric nectar collectors are now available. It simplifies the way you dab by eliminating the torch. It’s handy and can be taken anywhere. You can still take vertical dabs, and you have more control over your sesh.
