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?


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? 


Now Carrying ill Glass September 03 2015, 0 Comments

These are some of the most impressive functional pieces out on the market. The level of detail is astounding, and quality control seems to never let anything less than perfect leave the warehouse. Hand made Colorado, U.S.A. these are Illuzion Glass Galleries personal scientific line. When you hold one in your hand, you can immediately feel the high level of craftsmanship that went into this piece. They are all thick, and have a nice hefty weight to them. They have many popular models, as well as many models mixed together for more function. You will also find no shortage of collabs with your favorite high end glass artists such as, Darby Holm, Buck, Joe Peters, Jason Lee, JOP, and many many more! My personal favorite model right now would have to be the 50 watt recycler. The function is superb, you don't have to worry about inhaling a mouthful of water, and it is a nice compact design.  What is your favorite ill glass model?


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?

Proud Hi Si Glass Retailer August 18 2015, 1 Comment

We at Captain Ed's have been very fond of Hi Si for many years now. Hand made in San Leandro, California.  They offer a unique selection of percolated Water Pipes that will help reduce the negative effects associated with inhaling hot smoke. It all starts at the bowl, the Hi Si Drain Slide is going to offer maximum air flow and reduce drag through out the entire piece. Next, the smoke passes through the Tear Drop Honey Comb Diffuser and is chopped up into hundreds of small bubbles rapidly being cooled by the water reservoir. Then the smoke passes through one of the many different Peculator models offered by Hi Si and receives additional cooling. Finally the smoke passes through the Industrial Ice Pinces, so thick they can hold crushed ice for maximum cooling! Hi Si calls out to all our inner Mad Scientists with their clever Periodic Table of Elements logo and Measurement Lines printed along the sides of many of their models. Fans of function and style will not be disappointed when pulling out a Hi Si at their next gathering.  Order yours today!
