What is a Quartz Banger?

A banger is a chamber that holds cannabis, usually in the form of a concentrate like wax or shatter. It is often circular, quite deep, and made from quartz, glass, titanium, or ceramic. A quartz banger consists of three parts: the joint, the neck, and the bucket. You use the joint to connect the banger to the rest of the dab rig. The bucket is where you place the concentrates to be vaporized. And the neck connects the joint and the bucket together. Knowing all this you can now confidently know every part of your future best quartz banger.

You can't smoke a dab rig without a banger. Before fancy dab rigs existed, concentrate enthusiasts heated a nail with a blowtorch until it was red hot, then applied the concentrate to the nail's surface and inhaled the vapors. 

A banger serves the same function as that nail, but it's safer to use and holds the concentrate more securely. You simply heat the bucket of the banger with a blowtorch, and it keeps the concentrate at a high temperature. Then, it can be vaporized through the chambers of the dab rig. 

There are different styles of bangers available to buy, each with its own specific functions to enhance your dabbing experience. Here are some of the most popular: 

  • Flat-top banger: The most common type of bucket with a cylindrical shape and even, flat top that's easy to pair caps with
  • Angled banger: Rather than a cylindrical shape, these have a 45-degree angle cut along the top of the bucket
  • Opaque-bottom banger: With a thick, opaque bottom, this bucket has greater heat retention, so you'll need to reheat concentrates less often
  • Beveled banger: With a beveled bucket top, you can use caps with a flush seal and secure them into place

But what is a quartz banger? Titanium is often used to make a banger, but its metallic taste can seep through into the concentrate and damage the flavor of the terpenes. Quartz is a hard, crystalline mineral that's made of silica. Using a high quality quartz banger helps preserve these terpenes, so you can enjoy the true aroma and taste of the strain you've chosen. 

Many quartz bangers have a cap, or dome, you can use to cover the bucket. This allows you full control to restrict airflow and speed up how long your dabs last. Quartz is a highly durable material, so concentrate lovers who opt for a quartz banger over other materials appreciate how long it lasts. Quartz is also known to be incredibly easy to clean as quartz bangers have a smooth surface, rounded edges, and are more resistant to staining. Now onto choosing the best quartz banger for you.

How Long to Heat a Quartz Banger

Enough about looking for the best quartz banger, all of this brings us to an important question. One of the main reasons people choose to vaporize concentrates is to get a full-spectrum experience from the concentrated terpenes in the substance. But the application of heat can either bring out or damage these delicate terpenes. Too much intense heat from a blowtorch can also cause the quartz of your bucket to oxidize, leaving an unsightly cloudy, black stain. 

If you're using a quartz banger to hold your concentrate, how long should you heat it before inhaling? Well, the answer is more complicated than you might think. It depends on the thickness of the quartz and the age and quality of your banger. Generally, though, quartz holds in heat very well — far better than glass or titanium. 

These are the general guidelines you should follow: 

  1. Heat your banger with the torch for around 30 seconds or until it starts glowing.
  2. Let it cool down for up to 1 minute.
  3. Use your dab tool to position the concentrate in the quartz banger bucket.
  4. Add your cap and inhale.

Of course, if the room you're in is cold, then the cooldown period will be faster. And if your concentrate pools, you've allowed it to cool for too long. Through repetition and experience, you'll find the routine that works for you. 

Some seasoned vapers prefer to practice "hot dabbing." This lets the user take larger dabs by heating the concentrate to an extremely high temperature, burning off the fats and lipids as well as the terpenes and cannabinoids.  This isn't recommended, as once you lose terpenes and cannabinoids from your concentrate, it has completely degraded in quality. And besides, hot dabbing can cause some pretty nasty coughing fits. Hopefully that answers all your questions about how long to heat a quartz banger.
