Fresh Burl Savage Order! November 16 2015, 0 Comments

We have been huge fans and supporters of Burl Savage for years now over at Captain Ed's. It's still rare for us to be able to get some work for him though! So once we got this shipment of three mini tubes and a klein recycler our heads naturally exploded. The mini 10mm Fixie tubes are absolutely perfect as little travel tubes. The full sized fully worked tube is just astounding, loaded with details, it really catches the eye. The klein is the first klein I have seen of his in person and it functions perfectly and features Burls signature chaos look. Hoping to get many more shipments from him in the future!

Jack Herer's Double Barrel Double Venturi Ricocheting Vortex Effect Pipe September 24 2015, 0 Comments

The Jack Herer Pipe is the only Hand Pipe i own! The pipe creates a natural self-carbureting and cooling effect. When used as instructed, eat hit is as fresh as the first hit. The "Double Venturi Ricocheting Vortex Effect" utilizes a dividing ridge at the bottom of the bowl which knocks the air into spiral, increasing it's travel time in the pipe barrels. By the tie the smoke travels through the bowl, down the neck, onto the dividing ridge, and then spirals thru the double-hole stem, the smoke is cooled to approximately one-third the temperature of a standard pipe. The special design of the Jack Herer pipe keeps it from charring the smoking material as it consumes the entire bowl. It continues to burn fresh material with out relighting. It is the smoothest pipe I have ever used, and its durable wooden design means it will not break from a simple fall. This is a pipe that should be in almost every ones collection! Do you smoke out of metal, wood or glass?


Volcano Vaporizers! September 23 2015, 0 Comments

We have carried Storz & Bickel Products for years, and now we have them available online to ship across the country! Volcano Vaporizers are the best vaporizers on the market hands down, and will be for the foreseeable future! Made from top quality parts in Germany, the Volcano Vaporizer differs from most other vaporizers with it's air pump design. The Volcano pumps hot air over your herbs and fills a bag with vapor. The Volcano comes in both Digital and Analog models with two different valve kit options. Personally, I prefer the Solid Valve kit over the Easy Valve Kit for my Volcano. Storz & Bickel have also just recently introduced two new portable models to their vaporizer lineup. The Mighty and Crafty are two of the best portable vaporizers on the market. Using very similar technology and method to the Volcano to vaporize your materials, just no air pump, You can directly inhale from built in mouthpieces on these portable models. What is your favorite vaporizer?

Bee Line Hemp Wick September 16 2015, 0 Comments

If you have never heard of using Hemp Wick to smoke your herbs, put down your lighter immediately, go out and get some Bee Line Hemp Wick and prepare to have your mind blown. Bee Line Hemp wick is all natural 100% organic hemp  coated in bees wax for a nice slow burn. Pack your favorite piece, light up the end of the Bee Line wick and use that flame instead of direct lighter flame to smoke your herbs. Bee Line is going to burn at a cooler temperature, and also eliminate butane from your smoking experience. The Butane in your lighter can ruin the flavor of your herbs, not to mention give you a headache, so for any connoisseur  Bee Line is the obvious choice, with it's superior taste to other hemp wick bands. Bee Line offers hemp wick from 9' to 200', so even the heaviest of smokers will not run any time soon!


Dave Goldstein Fritted glass Perc September 15 2015, 0 Comments

Dave Goldstein has been been blowing glass for easily four decades. He was even a personal friend to Captain Ed himself! That's what he told us when we met him at the American Glass Expo in Las Vegas.  He also told us had a back ground in laboratory glass blowing and noticed that none of the "functional" smoke wear was really as functional as true laboratory glass equipment. So he set out with one goal in mind, to make smoke wear that was laboratory grade. Dave had knowledge of fritted glass scrubbers used to scrub gasses with liquids from his time spent at University of Maryland’s technical glass shop in 1980-81. A fritted glass disc is a "disc" of crushed glass all fused together. Gasses or in this case smoke, that passes through the gaps in the crushed glass is scrubbed and cleaned. The only problem was, none of fritted discs available functioned at lung pressure. Through trial and error he was able to create a fritted disc coarse enough to function at lung pressure and completed his first prototype in April 2011. After realizing how  innovative and functional it was, he filed for a patent in December 2011. If you have never had the pleasure of using one of these, you are missing out!

Sway Vape: Low Temp Tech Pen September 08 2015, 0 Comments

Vaporizer pens are in no short supply these days. It seems like every week a new one is out on the market or a whole new company is claiming to have changed the game. Most people end up going through several pens, batteries, or globes before finding one they like. The Sway Vape is my personal favorite of all the pens we currently carry. Sway Vape comes with two identical cartridges featuring a vertical ceramic heating rod covered in a copper coil. The heating elements only get to around 410 degrees, ensuring a smooth tasty hit. The life span of the ceramic heating elements is also much longer than most metal coil models on the market. The heating elements are also able to vaporize herbs as well as oils. Sway vape also features a life time warranty! They are a very friendly company and easy to get into contact with for replacement parts. What are you waiting for? Orders yours today! What are you currently using as a pen vape?
