Whether you are using a nectar collector, your favorite dab rig, or a wax pen, the process for vaping or smoking dabs begins well before you break out your device. Prior to smoking your wax or oil concentrate, you have to have a place to store it. While you can find storage options in multiple materials, the ultimate go-to canister for any dab user is silicone dab containers. From Lego shaped boxes to honey bee hex containers, our shop offers the best silicone dab containers on the market with discreet worldwide shipping.
When it comes to concentrates, it is crucial to be smart about your selection for a storage device. While there really is no right or wrong answer when it comes to the specific silicone storage box, there are three areas you should keep in mind when choosing what will work best for you. These areas include size, style, and material.
Silicone dab containers are available in a wide range of sizes. You can choose large options to help stockpile your concentrate, small boxes for easy portability, or choose containers with multiple compartments to help separate each of the different strains of oil or wax concentrate.
Overall, the biggest decision a dab user will have to make when it comes to choosing a container is to determine what material you want your storage container to be made out of. Typically dab storage is available in one of three materials - borosilicate glass, plastic, and silicone. However, out of the available selections, silicone dab containers are by far the best choice for storing oil and wax concentrates. Unlike glass or plastic dab containers, silicone can store any consistency of concentrate without fear it will stick to the container. Therefore, dab users are able to use every last bit of oil or wax concentrate within the silicone dab container.
Silicone dab storage containers are available in multiple styles to fit the needs of every user from beginner to diehard dabbers. Each silicone dab container is created to fit a specific design or functionality. For example, some silicone container styles (such as the large hex split dab container) offer multiple compartment options for dab users who vape with multiple strains of wax concentrates, while other storage boxes (such as the honey jar dab container) are great for nectar collectors (as they offer the ability for the user to vape right out of the container).
While many dab pen or nectar collector users will smoke directly from their storage container, these products are mainly utilized for safely storing oil and wax concentrates. Each of our silicone dab containers is made from food-grade, non-stick, heat resistant silicone. They offer the best storage choice for dab users and help to preserve both the flavor and potency of wax and oil concentrates.
Nevertheless, silicone is a wonder in itself. Silicone is a kind of synthetic polymer that consists of silicon and oxygen atoms assembled in a specific combination. This sequence of atoms creates a flexible material, with a rubber-like plastic feel to it.
Shopping around for dabbing paraphernalia, it is easy to see silicone plays a major role for many products. Common items using silicone are ashtrays, water pipes, dab mats, storage containers, dab rigs, and nectar collectors. Some of the key reasons for silicone use in dab containers and other dabbing supplies is the materials durability, non-stick nature, heat resistance, and the ease of maintenance.
One of the most common reasons people choose silicone is due to the durability. It offers a strength not found in glass or plastic. You can twist, crush, or drop your silicone dab container without fear of breakage.
Silicone offers a heat resistance not found in other materials. In fact, heat resistant food-grade silicone has the ability to withstand temperatures as high as 572 degrees Fahrenheit. This high-temperature resistance makes silicone a great option for insulated storage, and as any avid dabber knows, you do not want to expose your concentrate to heat prior to use. Otherwise, it can (and often will) affect the integrity of the oil or wax concentrate.
Another of the more attractive silicone dab container features is the non-stick capabilities. Silicone provides a slick style surface which allows dab users to easily access every last iota of their oil and wax concentrates without exerting a lot of effort. This is especially helpful for weaker or elderly users who want to avoid any unnecessary effort. Not to mention it offers the most bang for your buck because users will not lose out on any of their high-quality concentrates.
Another key component for silicone dab containers is how easy they are to clean. Due to their heat resistant nature, you can actually toss these storage containers in the dishwasher (as long as it consists completely of high-quality silicone) without the fear of compromising the integrity of the container.
