Dear Stoner: I was at a friend’s house, and his roommate said he was going to take a dab, only to torch the end of some straw-looking thing before he slurped up smoke from a chunk of hash. Looked nothing like the dab rigs I’ve seen before.

Dear Blarney: What you’re describing sounds like a nectar collector, though I’ve never heard the term “slurp” used to describe one before — mind if I steal that? Nectar collectors have become quite popular among dabbers in the past year or so. Instead of using a nail attached to a piece like a bong, nectar collectors are heated at the tip of the smoking device and then rubbed against concentrates as the heated tip vaporizes them. The flavor really shines through if you do it right, and the pocket of the base is great for collecting reclaimed oils.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
