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?


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!

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?


Odor Control September 05 2015, 0 Comments

When it comes to enjoying your smoke, some times the odor it causes can create some unwanted tension. No one wants to get stuck with a $200 carpet cleaning fee for smoking in their hotel room either, or give the police probable cause to search a vehicle. Most of us have come across what is known as a "spoof" which is usually a paper towel roll stuffed with dryer sheets. This dorm room technique is amateur at best. The best product on the market right now, that I have come across, for smoke odor, is the Smoke Buddy.  The Smoke Buddy is a personal air filter that comes in three different sizes. Take a nice rip from your favorite water pipe or vaporizer and you can blow all that smoke and vapor directly through your Smoke Buddy, with only clean air coming out the other side. It completely eats the smoke, it's almost like magic. On top of that, you can light up some nice incense or a scented odor eliminating candle. What are some of your favorite odor eliminator techniques? 


Keeping It Clean September 02 2015, 0 Comments

Keeping your glass nice and clean is not always an easy task. As many of us know, the more frequently we use our favorite piece, the faster resin will build up in it. Cleaning after every use can be a little excessive for most people, but the longer you let it go with out cleaning, the harder it becomes to clean it. Water pipes for flower will also build up resin faster than oil rigs, and are harder to clean out that thicker flower smoke resin. My personal go to cleaner is Grunge Off. Grunge Off is formulated exclusively for glass, no scrubbing or excessive shaking is required for Grunge Off to clean your piece. I personally like to keep two bottles worth of Grunge Off in a plastic tupperware container big enough to hold multiple down stems, hand pipes, bowls, and other messy glass accessories. I usually let my dirty glass soak overnight, mainly because I don't need to use it while I'm sleeping. However, only an hour is usually needed for most pieces. After your pieces are done soaking, take them out of the container of Grunge Off and rinse them off in hot water. The hot water rinse will remove any remaining residue clinging to hard to reach areas in your piece. A single container of Grunge Off is reusable for up to at least three months of rigorous cleaning. If you like effortless cleaning, Grunge Off is for you! What are some of your favorite cleaning methods?


Sticky Fingers? September 01 2015, 1 Comment

Ever get handed a dabber with some sticky oil running down the side that you did not see, only to end up with the worlds stickiest fingers? Of course you have, it's happened to all  of us. It can be a real pain to get that stuff off successfully. A common solution to this problem that many people use is rubbing alcohol because it's usually what they clean their rigs with. Repeated use of rubbing alcohol will dry out your skin, not to mention you are wasting your rig cleaning supplies. Soap and water just cant cut through it, and if you are not able to get it off your fingers soon, you will transfer the sticky oil on to something else! Recently I came across a product that is so amazing at removing oil, I'm surprised more people don't already know more about it! "Hustle Butter" is originally purposed for tattoo care, however it's natural residue removing abilities are superb. Hustle Butter is a 100% vegan replacement for all petroleum based products for tattoo care. Made from mango, coco, papaya and other shea butters, it's a great all natural solution to getting rid of sticky fingers! What is your favorite method for removing sticky oil from your fingers?
