What Are Terp Pearls?
Terp pearls are an innovative dab accessory for dabbing. Other dabbers call it dab pearls, terp balls, or banger beads. These terp pearls will spin around inside the banger when you take a dab with a dab rig. They help to achieve low-temperature dabs and disperse concentrates for the more potent hit.
In short: Terp pearls are a popular dab accessory that people use to get maximum flavor and effects from every dab.
What Do Terp Pearls Do?
Terp pearls are mainly used to disperse concentrates and evenly distribute heat for huge dabs.
Without terp pearls, your concentrates may gather in a corner and these concentrates on the blazing hot quartz banger or surface might produce a lot of smoke and a massive lung expansion. It was greatly degrading the flavor and even the true effects that you expected your experience to deliver.
However, the terp pearls will evenly distribute the concentrate over the surface of the banger inside by spinning. That means it will make more flavor and bigger clouds before the nail cools down.
Today, terp pearls are mostly used by dabbers who want to take huge and flavorful low-temperature dabs.
Types of Terp Pearls
Borosilicate Glass Terp Pearls. These terp pearls are sturdier than regular dab pearls so that they are easier to maintain. However, borosilicate glass couldn't greatly work on high heat which said that it might melt or change shape under high heat.
Ceramic terp pearls. As we all know, ceramic features greater flavor and heat retention than borosilicate glass. These terp balls also could provide great work for you. But you have to pay attention to these ceramic terp balls because they are breakable. That means that they are a little hard to maintain.
Quartz Terp Pearls. Compared with borosilicate pearls and ceramic pearls, quartz pearls seem more popular due to their great heat retention and high flavor. Also, many dabbers choose them because they have excellent features and are affordable.
Sapphire & Ruby Terp Pearls. These pearls are a great addition to your dab rig! They hold heat impeccably well compared to other pearls. They can stay hot for a long time and are great for the low temp dabs. Just make sure you don't use a q-tip dipped in alcohol to swab hot pearls or put them on the alcohol when they are hot.
Synthetic Corundum Terp Pearls. Synthetic corundum terp pearls are the perfect replacement for ruby terp pearls. They have better heat retention and high flavor but they are cheaper than ruby terp pearls.
SiC Terp Pearls. SiC pearls is a new member of the dab pearls but have not yet been widely used in the market. Some dabbers say it’s a huge game changer. The SiC is harder than quartz and has a thermal shock resistance as well as high heat resistance. And they are easier to clean. It's a new exploration for all of our dabbers!

Fortunately, clean the terp pearls are easy, you just need to use a dry q-tip to swab out your banger and the terp pearls inside after each dab or put your completely-cooled dirty dab pearls into isopropyl alcohol soak for about a half-hour and rinse the terp pearls with warm water.
Using Carb Caps With Terp Pearls
Like we mentioned before, only some carb caps which we call spinning carb caps can work with terp pearls.
