Should You Vape Indoors

by: Chelsea O. | 09/09/20 2:30PM

One of the definite perks of vaping is the discretion it allows. Vapers are able to vape their favorite herb or concentrate while still appearing as just any typical e-cigarette vaper.

Should I be Vaping?

How Shortfill E-Liquids Provide Flexibility to Vapers

by: Joe C. | 08/17/20 2:30PM

Vapers who can buy e-liquid with nicotine in any strength and bottle size that they want probably have not heard of shortfill e-liquid, but it is out there and it's certainly worth knowing about if your e-liquid purchases are regulated in terms of nicotine strength, bottle size, or flavor. While immensely popular with vapers in the United Kingdom due to TPD regulations imposed on retail e-liquid sales that prevent vapers from buying vape juice that contains nicotine in bottles bigger than 10 mL and with a strength no higher than 20 mg/mL, shortfills are also popular with vapers impacted by bans on flavored e-liquids.

What is the point of a pipe screen

by: Colby M. | 08/10/20 2:30PM

If you have ever used a smoking pipe, chances are you have heard the term ‘pipe screen.’ If you have not, no worries. Pipe screens are small cylindrical mesh-like accessories that are inserted into your bowl to tamp down on clogs and scooby snacks. Pipe screens are usually made from brass or stainless steel and come in large packs. You can also find glass pipe screens as well. Large packs are great for pipe screens because they get replaced frequently between a certain number of smoking sessions. You might be wondering, what is a scooby snack? Scooby snacks refer to small chunks of herb that accidentally get sucked into the neck or mouthpiece of a smoking pipe forcing the user to unclog their pipe or accidentally inhale them. Either way, they can be super annoying to deal with. With a pipe screen, you can prevent scooby snacks from occurring. In the next section we will break down the pros and cons of utilizing pipe screens to improve your smoking experience.
