Silicone Containers vs Glass Jars
Dab containers, which are usually made from food-grade silicone or glass, are a safe and portable way to store your concentrates for the road.
These small jars store concentrates like sugar, crumble and shatter. Measuring roughly 2ml to an ounce in size, these containers are small, portable and lightweight. They are easy transport, conceal and even help to extend the shelf life of your concentrates.
Although glass dab containers are still popular, silicone is becoming the standard for one key reason: its nonstick surface. Since concentrates tend to be very sticky, you lose more on the surface of glass than you do with silicone. Silicone is also shatterproof which is an added benefit in case you drop it.
How to Open a Dab Container
Generally, if you are using a glass jar with a childproof seal, you will pinch the lid and lift in a hinging motion.
If you are using a silicone container you can use the flat or pointed end of your dab tool. Just pry it open carefully until the lid pops off. If it’s square shaped you can use your thumbs to gently open it from one of the corners.
Can You Dab Out of Silicone Containers
Technically, food-grade silicone can withstand temperatures up to 450°F and since the standard range for most dabs is 545-570°F, that’s far too hot to dab from them directly.
How to Clean Silicone Dab Container
The easiest way to clean your silicone dab containers is to simply pop them in the freezer. Once it freezes, flex the container so that the resin cracks off. You can follow by washing it in soapy water and rinsing it clean but that’s not normally necessary!
