A nail is a long piece of quartz, titanium, or glass used to vaporize cannabis concentrates during the process called dabbing. It is heated at a defined temperature, then touched with a piece of concentrate via a dabber. Therefore, the resulting vapor is inhaled.
There are several types of nails: domed, domeless, and electronic. Domed nails are popular due to their low price, while domeless versions are bigger and provide the consumer with a larger amount of concentrate.
