Thermal bangers are a specific type of dab nail, and one that will maximize your enjoyment. The dab nail is where the concentrate heating process takes place. To kick off the dabbing process, you’ll need to heat the dab nail, which rests on the side of the dab rig. After it has reached the appropriate temperature, you would then place your concentrates on the dab nail. After doing so, you would inhale, drawing the smoke into the piece (and any filters), and then into your mouth. So, dab nails serve an important purpose in the dabbing process.
