Glass Bongs

What Are The Best Glass Bongs?

May 9, 2022

Also referred to as a water pipe, a bong is commonly used for smoking tobacco, cannabis, and other dry herbal substances. It has been used in Thailand, Laos, and Africa for centuries. The construction is similar to a hookah but is usually smaller in size and meant for 1 user at a time. Although it can be made from any air and watertight material by adding a stem apparatus and bowl, some of the best bongs on the market are those made from glass. Besides being easy to use and clean, one of the benefits of glass bongs is that it gives smoother and cleaner hits. Those smoother hits make it more gentle on your throat and lungs, making them the perfect option if you are sensitive to rolled joints and bowls hits. The water in the bong filters the smoke and traps the different particles, tar, and other chemical products that would have made their way into your mouth and lungs. To use the glass bong, you need to carefully add water to it, making sure to adequately cover the bottom of the stem that filters the smoke from the stem. Then you can either remove the glass bong bowl or load it in place with cannabis, tobacco, CBD Flower, or other preferred products. If your herbs have been ground, measure ¼ teaspoon, but if not ground, remove the larger pieces, separating the stems out, and break the remaining so that they can get in the bowl and burn. If the bong contains an ice catcher, put a few ice cubes to get the best hit. Many people use the term glass bongs as game changers, and chances are, once you start using them, you will never look back. What kind of glass are bongs made of? Most bongs on the market are made from borosilicate glass. This is glass that contains silica and boron trioxide. It is known to have low coefficients of thermal expansion, making the bongs resistant to thermal shock…and hopefully, if you are lucky drops from low enough heights. The bongs are made by specialist glassblowers, known as lathe workers. The process of making the bongs begins with a specialist glassblower heating a piece of glass and then putting on a hollow pipe from which to blow air into the glass. The specialist then constantly spins the glass while blowing air into it. The spinning creates a centripetal force that keeps the bong uniformly shaped, while the lathe keeps the glass constantly and uniformly spinning. At various stages, the artist uses specialized tools to create different features that they want on the bong. The artist may even add additional colored borosilicate rods to give the final bong its color and other glass ornaments to decorate the outside of the bong. Many bongs require multiple pieces For the bong to be complete and functional, it needs several pieces that are often blown separately and then joined by heating localized glass areas or connected with rubber grommets. The most common pieces that need joining are the neck, water chamber, bowl, mouthpiece, and down stem. Most bowls and […]

Dabbing vs Vaping

What’s The Difference Between Dabbing and Vaping?

April 19, 2022

Dabbing vs Vaping! For generations, cannabis users have been limited in the ways to consume cannabis. All they could do was smoke a joint or use a bowl. Some tried cannabis gums and other edibles but still went back to smoking, as it was better. Thanks to advances in technology, now there are many other ways to consume the flower as a cannabis consumer. Two of the most common ways are: dabbing and vaping. Both ways give you the ability to vaporize the cannabis concentrates and smoke the cannabis flower. Due to their popularity, the options have led to a serious debate on which method is better. This article will analyze how the two methods differ and answer the question of which is the best method to use. Before we dig deeper into the topic, let us define what is vaping and dabbing. What is vaping? Vaping is heating oil or concentrates to generate a light vapor that you inhale. You can do this in various ways, often using vape pens and vaporizer machines. Cannabis consumers opt for vaping due to a variety of reasons. One reason is that the vapor from vaping tastes better, and you have a wide array of e-juices to choose from. Vaping is also highly convenient as most vape pens can easily fit the pocket, they are odorless, easy to clean, easy to interchange the parts, and relatively cheap compared to other smoking devices. What is dabbing? Dabbing is the process of superheating an oily or waxy concentrate, then inhaling the vapors and smoke. Dabbing is traditionally done with a nectar collector, dab rig, dab pen, or portable e-nail. People dab because the process is more potent than vaping. The higher concentrations of THC you will find in dabs and other cannabis concentrates significantly reduce the amount you need to reap the cannabis benefits. Dabbing is also quick, different, easy to accessorize, cheap, versatile, and easy to take on the go. Dabbing allows you to smoke a variety of concentrates such as shatter, wax, oil, crumble, and so on. There are also a variety of smoke dabs, such as using a rig with a quartz banger, recyclers, mini rigs, a nail, dab pens, and so on. Difference between a vape and dab pen Vaping might seem similar to dabbing, as both devices allow you to carry a portable pen-sized smoking device you can easily recharge and refill. While this is the case, there is a difference between a vape pen and a dab pen, the main difference being that vape pens can only accept cartridges of oil concentrates (unless they use a wax tank) while dab pens can accept all types of dab concentrates, except for oils. To understand how the two devices differ, we need to dig deeper. What is a vape pen? A vape pen is battery powered, and you use it to inhale the vapor produced by oil or liquid cartridges. Vape pens have four major parts: sensors, tank, atomizer, and battery. These parts work together and heat up, producing the vapor you inhale. When using the vape pen, the vape oil […]

Vape Pens Vs. Box Mods—Which One Is A Better Choice For You?

March 29, 2022

Vape Pens Vs. Box Mods-Which one is a better choice for you? If you are asking this, you know what a vape pen and box mod are, right? To refresh your memory, vape pens are small pen-shaped devices about the size of an average cigar, and they contain a battery and a supply of either propylene glycol or vegetable-based glycerin that carries a flavoring agent and nicotine. When you heat the mixture via a coil, it creates a vapor cloud that you draw through the mouth. Also known as, e-cigs, box mods are rectangular or square, and they hold one or more rechargeable batteries. They are known as mods because when the vaping industry started, people made and modified their e-cigs. Their most identifying feature is that they allow you to personalize some settings, such as temperature and intensity. Vape Pens Vs. Box Mods To make the right decision, we need to look at how the two differ: Size Size is one of the critical differences between vape pens and box mods. Compared to box mods, vape pens are significantly smaller and lighter. This means that you can toss the vape pen in your bag, leave it on your desk at work, or even keep it in your back pocket. The sleek, slim design of vape pens also means that you can use them discretely almost anywhere. Other than the tiny bit of vapor you exhale, there is little or no sign you are using a vape pen, so you can add a little CBD to your system at any place and at any time without attracting too much attention. As you can tell, it’s a hassle to use box mods discretely as they are much larger and cumbersome to carry around. Ease of use All it takes to use a vape pen is to get it out of the box and take a puff. Unfortunately, it’s an entirely different ball game with box mods. Box mods have voltage, temperature, resistance value, puff duration, flavor, and other settings you must pre-set to have a great vaping experience. While these features sound cool, they can be confusing and intimidating to beginners. Pricing Due to their small size and few features, vape pens usually cost less than box mods. With many box mods, you have to buy batteries separately, which drives the price even higher. Tanks Due to their simple and basic nature, most vape pens use only one tank from the same brand, and you can’t swap it. This comes in handy if you are a beginner, as you don’t have to think about the various tanks you can change with—you only need to visit your manufacturer and buy your desired tank. Box mods are highly customizable, so the tanks can be easily swapped. As long as the tank uses the same connector thread, you can use it in your mod. You also can change to an RDA or RTA tank from a standard tank that takes the pre-built coils. Battery life The battery has a significant impact on how long you enjoy your vaping. Because of the small size of […]

Vaping Pen vs. E-Cigarettes

Vaping Pen vs. E-Cigarettes vs. JUUL

October 6, 2021

What is the difference between a vaping pen, e-cigarettes, and JUUL? Here is a lowdown on how they differ: Vap pen vs. E-cigarettes The terms vape pens and e-cigarettes are often used interchangeably, but the two are distinctly different devices. Electronic cigarettes, or e-cigarettes, as they are popularly known, imitate the look and feel of a real traditional cigarette. They feature a one-piece unit that you use until it runs out, then you throw it away. Vape pens, on the other hand, comprise a rechargeable battery and a refillable tank. This means that you can use them repeatedly without disposing of them, as all you need to do is to refill the tank. You can even mix and match the different parts and pieces and continue filling them with your favorite e-liquid. Some of the other ways the two differ include: Aesthetics As mentioned above, e-cigarettes mimic traditional cigarettes, so they are preferred by those that like the feel of holding a cigarette in their hands. Vapes can look more like fountain pens or even square. They are larger and more robust; hence they don’t give the traditional cigarette feel. Working In e-cigarettes, the battery is attached to a heating element known as an atomizer and a cartridge that holds the nicotine and other flavorings and liquids. In most e-cigarettes, the atomizer and cartridge are combined into a cartomizer. The battery then powers the atomizer to vaporize the liquid and the liquid contents to create the ultimate emission. Vapes work almost similar to e-cigarettes, but instead of a cartridge, they have a tank that holds the e-liquid. To use the vape pen, you have to push buttons then inhale, but it’s not the case with automatic e-cigarettes that lack buttons. Cost E-cigarettes are a low-cost alternative to traditional cigarettes, while vapes are advanced and often cost more. Flavors Since e-cigarettes use pre-filled cartridges, they don’t accommodate a wide variety of e-juice flavors, and it’s tricky to add more flavors, so you are limited in the flavor department. The most common flavors with e-cigarettes are tobacco, menthol, and mint. Vape pens have a wide variety of flavors, including menthol, beverages, fruits, tobacco, and many others. You can even mix and match e-juices to create a personalized taste. Battery Both e-cigarettes and vape pens have rechargeable batteries, but the batteries are usually large in vape pens, so they last for a much longer time. Vape Pen vs. JUUL The JUUL is a new entrant in the nicotine delivery system, and it’s raffling many feathers—in a good way. JUUL refers to an e-cigarettes brand, but it differs from the other e-cigarettes in the market in a variety of ways that include: Size and shape: Unlike the large e-cigarettes, JUULs are small and resemble a USB drive. Pods: JUULs have a pod system used to refill liquid into the system. Nicotine salts: JUULs use nicotine salts that allow the user to inhale larger nicotine content. USB chargers: JUULs come with specialized USB chargers used for charging. Like e-cigarettes, JUULs differ from vape pens in a variety of ways that include: Design JUUL has a […]

Vape Pen Blinks

What Does It Mean When A Vape Pen Blinks?

September 7, 2021

The LED indicator gives you an idea of what is going on inside your vape pen. When your vape pen has a problem, the LED indicator will change colors, pulsate or blink. Not all vape pens are the same and it is important to understand what your light indicator means on your device. While sometimes the reason behind the blinking is obvious such as low charge, improper installation, or connection problem, in some cases, the vape pen starts to blink for no good reason, which can be confusing. What does it mean when a vape pen blinks? If you are asking this question, you should know that vape pens have different blinks that mean different things. Here are some of the common blinks that your vape pen can have and their meaning: Vape pen blinks 3 times. If your vape pen blinks multiple times, it could mean you have a connection problem between the battery and the heating oil. The pen will also blink multiple times when you have a short circuit in the tank. Sometimes the pen will blink three times without the tank. If this is happening to your pen, you might be having a battery problem. If the LED blinks when connected to the tank, it might be due to a poor connection. To fix the blinking problem, ensure that the heating oil and battery connection is clean and secure. If the blinking goes on, try using the battery with other coils/tanks to see if the problem is gone. If the problem persists, you have to replace the coil/tank. If you do the replacement and there is still flickering, the problem is most likely with the vape pen battery. Is your vape pen is still under warranty? Get in touch with the dealer for a replacement. Vape pen blinks 4 times Some pens will blink 4 or more times when the atomizer resistance is lower than 0.1 ohms or higher than 2.5 ohms. Due to the lower resistance, the battery will automatically shut down the output to protect the pen. All you have to do is wait, then put the pen on again. Vape pen blinks 5 times In most cases, your vape pen will blink five-time or more times immediately after inhalation or usage, and it’s often a sign of a low battery. To fix this issue, you need to charge your battery. You should note that even when you screw in your battery for charging, the LED will still blink, indicating that the charging process has begun. Some high-end pens will blink five times as a warning that you are over vaping. When you press the fire button for a long time (over 10 seconds), the power output will shut off then the white light will flash 5 times. This is meant to protect you from over vaping, and all you need to do is wait and vape again. Of course, do it for less than 10 seconds this time around. Why is my vape pen flashing 10 times? The vape pen will sometimes blink 10 or more times due to plenty of reasons. The […]

Best 510 Thread Battery for Cartridges

July 23, 2021

The 510-thread battery is the most popular battery type for vaping on the market. This means there are many terrific batteries out there, but it also means there are also unscrupulous manufacturers peddling substandard products. These can be a waste of your money. Both genuine and substandard 510-thread batteries come in different shapes and sizes. Some are rectangular, and others square. Others are small such that you can easily carry them discreetly around, while others are large, thus require you to have a bag to put them in. To avoid spending your money on the wrong battery, you should take your time to research and find the best battery. What are some vapes that come with top-quality 510 thread batteries? Well, below, we list a few good ones that are available. Some of the best ones being: Dial oil cartridge battery vaporizer kit Featuring a 500 mAh lithium-ion battery, the Dial oil cartridge battery vaporizer kit is everything you need for a simple and better vaping experience. The Dial has a unique look with a big dial in the middle. Hence, its name, the Dial. You use the Dial to control the battery’s voltage output when heating your oil. The Dial has 21 different settings that can be increased or decreased in 0.1 Volt increments ranging from 2.2 Volts to 4.2 Volts. When you are new to the kit, it might be challenging to tell what voltages correspond with the various temperatures, but it’s easy to get the hang of it with time. To be on the safe side, when you are starting, keep the Dial to the middle range around 3.4 Volts and find your ideal temperature from there. The Dial weighs only 33 grams. This makes it easy to carry around. Since it’s slightly under 2 inches in height, it fits in your palm so that you can use it discretely in public. The top portion is removable, giving you a better view, but it’s recommended you keep the top attached as the Dial looks better that way. You also keep the internal parts protected when you do this. Although it lacks buttons and magnetic adapters, it’s compatible with most 510 threaded cartridges using the bottom-fed airflow, so you can have peace of mind that it will be compatible with the cartridges you’re most likely to purchase. To use the Dial, ensure that it’s fully charged, then attach your oil cartridge. Once a connection has been made, a blue LED light will flash, and you should proceed with setting your preferred voltage setting. To activate it, inhale, and multi-colored LEDs lights will come up indicating that the device is active. The kit also comes with a lanyard for easy carrying and a micro USB charger for easy charging. To charge it, you only need to connect the Micro USB into the USB wall adapter or any other USB device and let it go. Verdict The Rokin Dial looks elegant, and it’s lightweight, compact, simple to use, caters to oil with its wide range of low voltage settings, and—icing on the cake—it’s compatible with most 510 cartridges. If you […]
