The Honeybird Nectar Collector.

18 posts in this topic

Noticing that dabbing was becoming very popular in USA and them being years ahead of us blightys with regards to cannabis consumption methods, I decided I’d like to give it a go.

From seed to rosin so to speak.

Found out that my good pal @Rex Mundi was thinking along the very same lines, so we decided to go shared ownership on a 10ton Dabpress.

Since purchasing we have both been very impressed with the rosin press and would recommend to anyone considering buying one.

 

Initial thoughts for rosin consumption was to use a steel rosin gauze in either volcano or mighty vapes. This proved good but I also fancied a bit of glassware dabbing. The price of some of the specialist dabbing rigs is ridiculous especially when it risks breakage on a daily basis if it is anywhere near me. 

Got a banger for a glass bong that I already had and awaaaaay we go.

 

Bloody hell it’s good. Rosin.

Then Rex calls me up one day all excited as he had received a gift in thanks for one of his many good deeds.

He was gifted a Honeybird Nectar Collector Deluxe and said it was the best thing ever. When I got to have a go I was inclined to agree. It is a brilliant little hand held rosin destroyer.

 

As I knew the person who had gifted it to Rex, I was soon in contact with them saying “want one” and it just so happened that at cost price to him I could have one too. Yay. Got one and it has been well used since.

 

A few mates then said “want one too”, so I decided to source them at a (way) cheaper price from the main man in China with 2-3 weeks delivery.

 

Anyways, they are good. Very good. Quite cheap and made well.

They come in two sizes. The larger deluxe is 18.5cm long and at widest point 6.5cm. 

The mini version comes with a protective plastic case, neck string  and tip sheath and is 14.5cm long and at widest 3.5cm.

Tips are made of either crystal glass, titanium or ceramic. Crystal being the better option imo.

To use it is very simple, put rosin in parabolic bowl using spatula supplied. Partially fill core chamber with water and heat tip until glowing.

Dab hot tip into bowl and inhale. At this point you either sit back and melt or cough your guts up for a few minutes and then melt.

Practice soon sorts out the coughing.

 

 

Like any glassware it requires regular cleaning. This is made easiest if you have got IPA, Table Salt and test tube brushes at hand.

A plastic washing  up bowl with hot water and fairy liquid. Keep glassware away from porcelain sinks and metal taps. 

Cleaning the Nectar Collector can be a bit awkward but with perseverance it soon gets back to like new.

Great care must be taken when handling glassware, especially when it is red hot.

Happy Dabbing Folks!!

I had one of these. They are pretty good but have a few downsides and I do prefer a decent pen.

 

They are a bit breaky if you aren't careful. Theres a serious knack to getting the temp accurate that takes a lot of practice really. No matter what I end up sacking off the little bowl and dipping into my big pot of rosin. Trouble with that is every dip decarbs a layer of rosin and evaporates the terps so the quality of the dabs deteriorates until it's all dark and nasty.

 

If you are careful, willing to practice and wont be a lazy git like me they're good!

They work.  They seem to go through material faster than just dabbing with a nail.  I had one gifted to me, but gave it away.

 

A good idea!  I carry a 4" length of about 6 mm borosilicate tubing in my shaving kit, which works well for the same purpose.  You can clean it with a torch before packing away to resume traveling.

 

I prefer to use a PID controlled electric nail, so that I can guarantee that I am keeping the temperature below 710F, where aromatic hydrocarbons start to break apart and turn into something else.

The main problem is the very low thermal mass of the tip, it loses heat waaay faster than a banger so it's only really at the right temperature briefly. I have seen enail type nectar collectors that look cool but there a bit spendy.

That addresses the key temperature control issue, though it adds the trailing wire and assembly at the business end of the device, where it interferes most.

 

The only remaining issue that I see, is that at least in these parts, we went through more material using our Nectar Collector, than we did with nails.  We've tried smearing the dab on an interim surface, as well as sticking the snozzel directly into a jar of concentrate, which is how I use my 6mm borosilicate travel tube.  Neither the tube or a 2 dram lip balm jar in my medicine kit have ever draw any attention at the airport.
