Dabbing is an out of body experience, and over the years, it's revolutionzed with so many advances in the industry. They didn't stop at just the glass pieces either. Every part and accessory needed to dab has been improved, and torches were definitely not forgotten. After all, you can't get lit without the fire right?
There are two different types of fuel for your torch, butane or propane. A butane torch is a device that uses butane gas to generate a concentrated flame as hot as 2000 degrees Fahrenheit for heating up a quartz banger, titanium or ceramic nail. Butane is usually the go-to choice for dabbers, and has remained constant because they are refillable, effective, cheap, and is said to preserve the flavors of your concentrates, giving you a robust hit.
Propane torches are not as highly favored because they tend to over heat, and if you use propane, it produces titanium dioxide when the nail burns. Inhaling this can irritate the nose and throat at high temperatures, and it is also a possible carcinogen.
