Pros: These dropper bottles filled with infused alcohol, glycerin, or vegetable oil usually come in high CBD (cannabinoid... definition here) options for medical patients to drop under their tongue. Fast acting, powerful, and easy to carry, tinctures allow a faster high than typical edibles and are more widely used for medicinal purposes.
Cons: Most tinctures taste like shit, and if you’re dumb enough to use Everclear to extract (um, yeah), could irritate sensitive areas of your mouth. The typical high-CBD options won’t get you high, nor are there a ton of strain options available. Also, no one looks cool while taking a dropper under the tongue.
Pros: The most efficient way to dab out there: lightweight in case, and looks super cool -- picture a vertical dab rig, with mouthpiece connected to percolator, attached to straw-like glass tube that’s heated on one end and dipped into concentrate like how you’d suck up part of a spilled milkshake that landed on a clean table. It makes dabbing easier by eliminating dab sticks and product manipulation from the equation. This feels like a dabbing method that will be improved upon with commercial intervention: hopefully we’ll see handheld and battery-powered options soon.
Cons: It’s a long and narrow piece of glass that doesn’t stand easy. If you or your stoner friends don’t break it just picking the nectar collector up, there’s plenty of chances to drop it too hard on a table, miss a target, and smash a table, or have someone grab it from the wrong end and toss the piece. Apparently, regular straws are made of plastic for a reason.
