Where Will A Vape Pen Be One Year From Now?

Personal vaporizers have taken the world by storm. In a cloud of vapor haze, the way people are inhaling medicated or recreational herbal blends and concentrates by vape pen is changing drastically. The industry of vapes and vaporizers has changed so dramatically in the past few year, let’s take a look at how different things will be next year.

Employing celebrities as spokesman has been a common practice for any company, but the vape pen industry is turning this collaboration act on its side. Artists and bands are taking huge roles in designing and promoting their own lines of vape pens and accessories. The usual suspects like Snoop Dog will surely have more designated Dawg Pound merch, similar to the G Pen for dried material and the temporary use Grenco Science slim vape by Snoop. And look at band 311 coming original with a vape pen from Grassroots called The Uplifter. This pure C02 compatible pen was created by front man Nick Hexum, who absolutely swears by it.

Let’s all be honest here: Size actually does matter, especially when you are concerned about portability or being stealth. Certain vape pens already look very much like smartphones or devices, but we foresee personal vaporizers becoming even smaller in size, yet more powerful in vaping abilities.

Dual and even triple threat systems are making a huge impression on the vape crowd. What could be more perfect than one unit that can vape dried blends, waxes, and concentrate oils all with the switch of an atomizer or tank? The duality of the dry herb and wax vaping Prima Portable Vaporizer takes you from that sweet flower to serious concentrate waxes in no time flat. A current heavy weight 3 in 1 champion is the 500 Class Dry Liquid Extract Quickdraw. This mighty little machine stays cool and hits the stylish spot too with a variety of color options.

Cleaner vaping methods and substances are also going to see new stones turned in the year 2017. Legalization has made more streamlined testing and business possible. This is just the beginning of the green rush and the vape pen industry is the co-pilot.

Concentrate Rig Anatomy

rig

 

Dab rigs and bongs: What is the freakin’ difference and what components do they consist of? Read on, weary internet traveler. All the info you seek is within this blog.

Dab rigs do not use combustion as bongs or other water pipes for dry herbs do. Ignoring combustion use, you can get a cleaner and stronger hit comparatively. Dabbing concentrate involves flash heating your product to create a vapor. This vapor is cleaner and more flavorful than smoke made by burning dried herb the old school way.

A basic concentrate rig set-up consists of the rig body, nail, torch, and dabber tool.

 

nails

 

Dab Nail Types

Whichever nail you end up choosing, make sure it heats up fast and stays lit so to speak.

  1. Ceramic
  2. E-Nails
  3. Glass
  4. Quartz
  5. Titanium

 

dome

 

To Dome or Not to Dome?

There is no perfect way to dab. Everyone has their favorite routine. You can dab with or without a vapor dome.

  1. Domed nails are a little safer than their exposed domeless cousins
  2. Domed nails trap vapor in for you so you can have a fuller dab drag
  3. Domeless dab nails are usually easier to use, but be careful! They are exposed and your hands and fingers could be their first burn victims

 

Concentrate Rig Structural Cheat Sheet

Sometimes in the headshop being surrounded by all of the different glass pieces can be distracting and confusing. Here are some obvious watermarks of a true dab rig.

  1. Glass nails and domes are telltale signs of rig vs bong
  2. A quartz banger on a rig keeps that ferocious heat away from your delicate stem
  3. A male joint on a glass piece usually denotes a dab rig
  4. A 90 degree joint is a sign of a true dab rig. Bongs usually have 45 degree angled joints
  5. Recycler loops are chambers in the rig that cycle your water through each compartment

 

Dab rigs are the perfect example of bigger isn’t always better. A smaller rig can save you lots of flavor and they are less wasteful too!

Game On – VapeXhale Cloud Evo Lays Down Challenge To Volcano Vaporizer

The Volcano vaporizer from Storz & Bickel has, for many years, reigned supreme over the desktop vaporizer market.

Volcano Vaporiser Digital

It is easily the sleekest, best-built, best performing home vaporizer – a yardstick by which all other desktop vaps should be measured.

Although there are many other desktop vapes available, none of the offerings can hold a candle to the Volcano.  Until now.  It’s just possible that the team at VapeXhale have created a challenger to the Volcano’s crown – the VapeXhale Cloud Evo.

The VapeXhale Cloud Evo is the new, improved version of VapeXhale’s original Cloud vaporizer.  The improvements on the original model are many and various and appear to have made a massive difference.

 

Firstly, the VapeXhale Cloud Evo features an all-glass vapour pathway – a simple, but often overlooked feature that positively ensures pure, clean vapour thanks to the inert, non-reactive nature of glass.

Secondly, the Cloud Evo is equipped with an advanced convection heating system which the manufacturers call Perpetuheat (PHS).

Basically, the Perpetuheat system ensures that vaping temperature is consistent, irrespective of changes in airflow.  That means that you can inhale from the VapeXhale Cloud Evo however you wish.  There is no fiddly technique to learn with the Cloud Evo; rip on it like a bong or sip on it like a fine wine – you’ll get exactly the same results – thick, milky vapour bursting with natural flavours.  The improved system also delivers faster heat up times, fully adjustable temperatures and the versatility to vaporize both dry herbs and flowers as well as wax, oils and sticky concentrates.

VapeXhale Cloud Evo Vaporizer With Tree Perc HydraTube

Best of all, the VapeXhale Cloud Evo is compatible with a choice of glass mouthpiece attachments.  Whereas the Volcano is designed for use with a balloon, the Cloud Evo’s glass-on-glass joint can fit a standard glass mouthpiece attachment, or any of the optional Hydrotube glass water attachments.  The VapeXhale offers an unrivalled coolness and smoothness of vapour when used with a water bubbler attachment.

Not since the launch of the Volcano a few years back has there been such a leap forward in vaping technology.  The Cloud Evo is built by vapers, for vapers – a true connoisseur’s choice for a desktop vaporizer.

VapeXhale Cloud Evo Vaporizer With Sidecar Circ Perc HydraTube

The VapeXhale Cloud Evo comes packaged as a complete kit which includes everything you’ll need to start vaping straight away, including your choice of glass Hydrotube.  As usual, when you buy the VapeXhale from EDIT you’ll get free shipping, same-day dispatch and our famous price match guarantee.

Opinicus 9 – Californian Art Glass Now At EDIT

Opinicus 9 are another American art glass company that we came across on one of our many recent visits to the US as we continue to embark on our largest purchasing campaign ever.

We’ve been attending trade shows and glass exhibitions all over America as we search for the finest glass smoking products to bring home to the EDIT website.

Opinicus 9 - Classic Frit SpoonOpinicus 9 - Clear Satellite Honey Roller Oil Rig

Based in San Diego, California, Opinicus 9 are a family run glass company with some serious glassblowing talent at their disposal.

Using the finest American borosilicate glass, the Opinicus 9 team have crafted this range of beautiful glass oil rigs and spoon pipes aimed at connoisseur smokers and glass collectors.

Opinicus 9 - Fumed Satellite Honey Roller Oil Rig

The Opinicus 9 Fumed Satellite Honey Roller Oil Rig looks an absolute picture with the frosted glass honeycomb work and fumed accents on the diffuser, dome and mouthpiece.  Standing just 21cm tall, the Honey Roller is equipped with an integrated diffuser downstem which cools and smoothes the smoke or oil vapour by breaking the mixture up and increasing the surface area.  The water in the chamber bubbles up as you inhale, again providing a cooling filtration effect.  The resultant hit is smooth, cool and bursting with flavours, untainted by the pure inert glass.  A real discerning smoker’s piece from an emerging glass studio with a very bright future.

Opinicus 9 - Rasta Lion Frit Spoon

The Rasta Lion Frit Spoon Pipe is a quality glass hand pipe with iconic styling.  The pipe is made by pouring crushed glass or frit into the spoon while the glass is still hot.  This technique is what creates the remarkable finish that you see on Opinicus 9 frit pipes.  The pipe is perfectly smooth to the touch but has the fritted effect sealed underneath the outer layer of the pipe.  Each pipe is equipped with a carb hole or rush hole to help you get the most from each hit.

There is an entire range of Opinicus 9 glass available to buy from EDIT immediately.  All the glass oil rigs are available with free worldwide shipping, same day dispatch and our famous price match guarantee.

American Beauty – Stunning Glass Oil Rigs From Across The Pond

Team EDIT have spent a good amount of time in the USA over the last few months.  We’ve been visiting glass shows and trade exhibitions left, right and centre as we embark on the largest purchasing campaign we’ve ever undertaken.

We’re stocking up the EDIT shelves with the hottest new products that are being used by connoisseur smokers in states like Colorado, Washington and Oregon.

Newport Zero Jumbo Butane Torch

The biggest difference between the US and the European cultures is perhaps the meteoric rise of the dabbing and oil scene in the USA.

Discerning American smokers have fully embraced the concept of wax, oils and other sticky concentrates.  This shift in smoking style has spawned a whole new raft of specialist glassware designed specifically for use with concentrates and essential oils.

Grav Labs - Box Perc Bubbler Black Accents - Grav Gold CollectionSidecar Shower Head Perc Oil Rig - Dr GreenThumbDab Vac - Headdies Glass

The speed with which the American market has become littered with this specialist glass is indicative of two things:  firstly, that the 710 generation is unquestionably here to stay, and secondly that the American appetite for heady and scientific glass has encouraged some frankly, astonishing leaps in design that have resulted in some of the most amazing glass pieces we have ever seen.

Naturally, we’ve brought as much of this glass back to EDIT HQ to allow our beloved EDIT-Heads the chance to own a piece of genuine American art glass without needing to order from overseas.

Hitman Glass - Baby Turbine Sundae Cup Oil Rig With Black Lip

Our latest acquisitions include a selection of beautifully made oil rigs from Hitman Glass.  The unique styling of Hitman Glass is sure to make each piece a talking point as soon as it comes to the table.  With cutting edge percolation methods like the proprietary Brilliance Turbine perc, the Hitman range is made from the finest borosilicate glass at the Hitman Glass studio in California.

We’re offering free shipping on the entire Hitman range.  Order today for same-day dispatch and our famous price match guarantee.

The Keg Inline Perc Recycler Rig - Gravity Hill Glass

Also new in is the insanely beautiful collection from Gravity Hill Glass.  Again, this range is hand made in California by a small, dedicated team.  Top quality borosilicate glass is used in every piece to ensure ultimate strength and heat resistance.  The Gravity Hill range features advanced scientific designs with integrated percolators working in tandem with recycler systems to produce glass worthy of the most discerning smoker.  Again, each piece is subject to our free shipping offer and can be shipped same-day on orders placed before 4:20pm GMT.

World Class Glass: Amsterdam Glassworx Hits The Big Time

Over recent months, Team EDIT have been travelling the globe, visiting trade shows and glass exhibitions looking for exceptional quality glass to bring back to the site for you guys to enjoy.

Our journey of discovery has given us a rare insight into the workings of the burgeoning glass industry; an industry that is surely set to expand further as heady decoration and scientific designs become more readily available and crucially, more affordable.

Sherlock Helio Pipe with Dichroic Swirl - Aqua

There are a lot of small, artisan glass studios that have emerged in the last few years as discerning smokers seek ever more complex glass designs to enhance their collection.

Without question, our favourite of these smaller glass studios is Amsterdam Glassworx – the home of the delightfully ebullient American lampworker, Chris Rawkins.

Chris has been working with glass for many years.  He learned his craft under the tutelage of Amsterdam’s Cannabis College, and picked up a Cannabis Cup award for Best Glass while honing his skills as a worker for Shiva Glass.

Amsterdam Glassworx - Glass Slide Bowl Switch Back Cloudy SkyAmsterdam Glassworx - Coloured Glass Dabber NecklaceAmsterdam Glassworx - Dutch Crown Male Domeless Nail

When Chris decided to launch his own glass company, setting up shop in the beautiful city of Amsterdam with all her seductive charms was a bit of a no-brainer.  Chris has a deep love for the city, and European culture in general.  So, around two years ago, Amsterdam Glassworx was born and Chris started producing hand-pulled glass in his own designs.  The glass was met with enthusiastic approval.  The natural fusion of quality American craftsmanship and European elegance was a breath of fresh air to connoisseur collectors.  Here at EDIT, we quickly snapped up the full Glassworx range.  It flew off of our shelves and continues to be a top seller today.

Amsterdam Glassworx - Dab Rig Switch Back Steel Wool

In recent months, Chris has been busy creating the second instalment of the Glassworx collection which includes beautiful recycler bubblers, pendants, quartz nails and gorgeous glass dabbing tools.  He is incredibly proud of his latest creations, and understandably so:  We ran into Chris at the DNA Genetics booth at the Spannabis hemp fair in Barcelona back in March this year.  DNA Genetics were displaying the latest Amsterdam Glassworx range on their own stand. 

This exposure from DNA Genetics brought the Amsterdam Glassworx range to the attention of thousands of potential new customers – a move that saw his glass sell out well before the show was over.

The full Amsterdam Glassworx range is currently available to buy from EDIT – the world’s largest headshop.  Don’t miss your chance to pick up an Amsterdam Glassworx piece and experience the quality for yourself.  We offer free shipping on orders over £99, super secure packaging, same-day dispatch and our famous price match guarantee that ensures you’ll always pay the lowest prices at EDIT.

Hang Time – Get The Most From Your Magic Flight Launch Box

The Magic Flight Launch Box, or MFLB, as it has become affectionately known, is a tried and tested portable vaporizer that has been popular for a number of years.

Launch Box Cherry - Magic Flight

The MFLB has been a top seller here at EDIT since its launch:  vaping connoisseurs love the simple functionality, excellent build quality and pure, clean flavours.  When Magic Flight launched their new concentrate box vaporizer – the Muad Dib – last year, it was again met with universal approval from the vaping community.

Magic Flight Muad-Dib Concentrate Box Vaporizer - Walnut

Now, Magic Flight have released a full range of optional extras and attachments to help you get even more vaping pleasure from your MFLB or Muad Dib.

Maple Orbiter - Magic Flight

The Orbiter from Magic Flight is a glass bubbler attachment that connects directly to the MFLB and allows you to combine the cooling filtration properties of a waterpipe with the full flavoured hit of an elite vaporizer.  The integrtated diffuser downstem inside the main chamber of the Orbiter breaks up smoke into finer particles, increasing the surface area and rapidly cooling down the hit when you inhale.

The MFLB Orbiter comes with two specially designed whips or hoses – one for connecting the MFLB and one to use as a mouthpiece.  This is a quality attachment from Magic Flight, available in genuine maple wood to match your MFLB.

Launch Box Herbal Concentrate Trays - Magic Flight

If you already own the MFLB vaporizer, but want to start to vaporize waxy oils and concentrates, you may not necessarily need to buy the Muad-Dib.  Magic Flight have released these specially designed concentrate trays which are compatible with the original Launch Box.  As well as a handy concentrate jar, the skillet kit comprises two skillets – one made of stainless steel which is for use with concentrates which do not fully liquefy.  The second is made from steel and quartz and can be used with full-melt extracts.  Magic Flight state that the concentrate trays work best in the MFLB when combined with a hose or whip attachment.

We stock a huge range of vaporizer parts and accessories for many different model of vaporizer.  Why not view our complete selection, so you can pick the add-on that’s right for you?
