When it comes to dabbing temperatures, every stoner has a different preference for heating their oils, concentrate, and extracts. Some cannaseurs enjoy a cool dab while others love taking a red-hot quartz banger dab.
But if you’re the kind of smoker that loves taking a smooth dab after a long day at work, a quartz banger is your dab rigs best friend, especially if you dab at low-temperatures. Low-temp dabbing itself is very popular among stoners who want to preserve the most amount of flavor while providing cooler hits that are easier on your throat and lungs.
It’s seen as the “safer” alternative for stoners who want to avoid extra pollutants and damage to their lungs & throats during a session.
One thing is for sure, when it comes to dabbing red-hot or as cool as possible, a reliable dab torch is a must. Without one, you’ll be left with choosing less than safe options to heat up your banger. While there may be methods to heat your dab torch on your stove or with propane, using a torch is far easier and definitely the safest method to heat your dabs to the right temperature.
So, keep on reading stoners and cannaseurs, in this post we’ll go over everything you need to know to correctly heat up your quartz banger for those smooth hits you’ve come to love. Say goodbye to coughing fits and check out our torches below!

It can be a little tricky to heat your nail to the proper temperature but having a quartz banger makes it easier.

For reference here are some benefits of choosing and dabbing with a quartz banger.
1. Quartz bangers are durable and retain heat really well. They won’t break under high temperatures if you choose to dab with high temperatures.
2. Quartz bangers are the best option banger if you want to rip low temperature dabs. Their ability to retain heat makes it easier to add your concentrate at your own pace to preserve the most terpenes for better tasting hits.
You definitely can’t go wrong with a quartz banger
Milky rips require hotter temperatures and evenly distributed heat through the base and sides of the banger body. For big dab clouds heat up your banger for about a minute or until your quartz banger begins to glow red-hot.
Once it’s red, remove your torch and truly decide what kind of dab you’re going to go for. A reddy or a low-temp dab?
Whatever you decide, it’s best you wait a good 10-20 seconds before taking your cloudy dab to avoid destroying your throat on first rips. If you want something smoother and easier on the lungs then keep your quartz banger at around 350 degrees.
You’ll enjoy the sizzling sound from your concentrate being vaporized and the smooth hits that comes afterwards as you plunge away! But wait, what about torch options for your dab rig combo?
