  2. Why Use a Portable Vaporizer for Dry Herbs & Essential Oils?

    Why Use a Portable Dry Herb/Herbal Extract Vaporizer?

    Vaporizing dry herbs/herbal extracts offers many benefits compared to smoking it. While smoking dry herb is done by simply lighting up the material and inhaling the smoke produced, the vaporization process will heat the material to a certain temperature where it will only emit the essential elements that we actually want to consume. Smoking is essentially burning it and therefore ingesting the carcinogens associated with combustion which is what you do NOT want to consume. By vaporizing dry herb/herbal extracts you are not burning anything but rather heating before combustion, it is comparable a convection oven. A vaporizer blows hot air over the dry herb/herbal extracts allowing the essential elements to be released in the form of vapor which can be inhaled allowing the plant matter to be used in more efficient way. Since the vaporization process does not produce any carcinogens which are associated with smoking, switching to a vaporizer seems like a  healthier and much smoother delivery device for ingesting dry herbs/herbal extracts.  Also vaporization produces less aroma making it a discreet option.

  4. Will Vaping Help Me Stop Smoking?

    Dear Vapers,

    A common question we often hear at the shop is “will vaping help me stop smoking?” As smokers are creatures of habits, and habits are tough to break, especially when it becomes entrenched in our unconscious brain, resulting for many of us to fly in autopilot. Smokers essentially start battling with themselves and their addition of the psychical act of smoking a traditional tobacco cigarette, or strictly the withdrawal of nicotine itself (that causes severe cravings etc.) Smoking traditional tobacco cigarettes quickly becomes part of our daily routine, and has been proven to be one of the hardest habits to break, and one of the hardest addictions to overcome!

  13. We Nuke the Top 5 Vaping Myths

    If you’re a practitioner of vaping, it’s highly unlikely that you’ve been able to escape the wild assertions and unfounded myths that’ve made the rounds on click-bait sites concerning e-cigarettes and their impact on one’s. Oftentimes, it’s difficult to determine the source of these “studies”; but in spite of the fact that most of these notions are rooted in conjecture and well, ignorance, many people are buying into it lock, stock and barrel. What makes matters worse is when the news does have a source – which makes it all the more difficult to argue the position that there is no concrete evidence that vaping can lead to cancer and chronic respiratory disease.

  15. What Does the Percentage of Nicotine Mean in my E-Liquid?

    Dear Vapers,

    Another common question we aim to clear up is what the numbers on the labels of e-liquid (with nicotine) mean. When you see 6mg(0.6%), 12mg(1.2%), 18mg(1.8%) or 24mg(2.4%) those numbers represents the concentration, or strength, of nicotine in your e-liquid. It is measured in milligrams of nicotine per milliliter of e liquid (mg/ml) and often shortened to mg in you e-juice bottle. The strength can also be articulated as a percentage of nicotine by mass. To break it down in layman's terms 0mg of nicotine which would be best suited for weekend shisha smokers, who enjoys social vaping. 6mg of nicotine is a low/light concentration, which would be comparable to a Belmont Mild, Matinee or Du Maurier Extra Light cigarette smoker. 12mg of nicotine is medium strength that would be best suited for current smokers who smoke light to medium cigarettes like a Du Maurier, Player's or Belmont. 18mg of nicotine is considered strong for current Marlboro or Camel smokers and 24mg is very strong and it would be recommended for current heavy Player's Special smokers.

  16. What is Mouth to Lung Vs. Direct Lung Vaping?

    There are two types of pulls you can get from vaping.  The first is referred to as mouth to lung (MTL) while the other is referred to as direct to lung inhale (DTL). This is an important question we ask everyone who is interested in making the switch from smoking to vaping.   The different vaping experiences can also be compared to drinking from a skinny straw versus a fat straw.  The skinny straw requires you to pull harder and the fat straw has less resistance and flows easier.  Read the further explanation below to understand the main differences and why they are important when choosing the right vape device for you.

  17. What is Nicotine?

    Dear Vapers,

    When researching the benefits of personal vaporizers aka e-cigs or more commonly known as electronic cigarettes, people become confused as e-liquid can contain nicotine, and a common misconception is nicotine can harm you; some will go as far as stating nicotine causes cancer and heart disease. But the facts prove it is other ingredients in tobacco smoke – not nicotine – that causes harm. Studies have shown that nicotine can be an effective treatment for many disease conditions and can prevent a number of other serious debilitating diseases (Nicotine Truth).  As we have mentioned in previous blog posts, smokers continue the bad habit as they are addicted to nicotine, but die from the smoke generated by burning tobacco. So we decided to give you the 411 on nicotine, in hopes to eradicate this misconception once and for all!

  18. What is a 510 Thread?

    Dear Vapers,

    A 510 thread is one of the most commonly threading used in e-cig devices. Threading is the ridges on the external or internal surface of your electronic cigarette battery or tank connection. All of our EGO personal vaporizers can accept BOTH EGO and 510 devices because the inside threading is the same (510). Basically, vapers can put any EGO or 510-T device onto an EGO battery. Please note, the same is NOT true for 510, in some cases
