  • The Best Portable Vaporizers for Dry Herbs

    The Best Portable Vaporizers for Dry Herbs

    by Katie Johnson

    What is a Portable Vaporizer?

    Portable vaporizers are increasingly becoming a favorite tool for tobacco and dry herbs. As their popularity increases, so does the availability. New vaporizers are being introduced to the market seemingly every day, and while some of the tools feature a classic design, others swap out functionality for a bit of flashiness. The problem is that when you are looking for a portable vape, especially if you are new to vaping, it is hard to know the difference between what works and what is unnecessary.

    Factors into choosing a Portable Vaporizer?

    There are several factors that you ought to look at when considering the purchase of a new portable vaporizer. This includes the price point, the durability of the item, the ease of concealment and portability, and finally the overall quality of the vaporizer itself, including the smoothness, temperature and taste of the dry herbs.

    Before you head out to the store, do your research and know what you are looking for ahead of time. Here is a quick breakdown of 5 of the best portable vaporizers for dry herb that are currently on the market:

    • Crafty Vaporizer

      Consistently rated one of the top choices in portable vaporizers for 2017, the crafty vaporizer is a bit on the higher-end of the budget options but it delivers a top-quality experience that makes it worth the extra cash. This is the newest addition to the Storz and Bickel product line. The crafty features an extremely subtle and portable design that is easy for on-the-go use, easily fitting in a pocket or even in the palm of your hand. Battery life is dependent on a charger, but the micro USB makes it as easy to charge as your cell phone. The Crafty Vaporizer is available for $279.

     

    • V2 Pro Series 7

      The V2 Pro Series is just about always making a top 10 list, but the 7 is good enough for the top five.  A bit more affordable than some of its counterparts, the V2 Pro Series is an ideal on-the-go vape option for someone who is not looking to break the bank. This vape perfectly handles dry herb, wax, or oil, and is small enough to easily fit in your hand or pocket. One of the most praised features of this vape is the battery, with an 1800 mah battery life that is designed to stand up to hours of continual use before needing a charge. This vape can be found for under $130 which makes it an ideal option for budget-conscious consumers.

     

    • Firefly 2

      This is a pure convection vaporizer that produces a quality vaping experience, with five different temperature settings, the ability to handle dry herbs and concentrates, and incredible ease of use. One of the reasons the Firefly 2 is so sought after is due to its battery life alone. The Firefly 2 comes with two replaceable and rechargeable batteries that make it easy to take this vape off the grid for hours on end without disruption. The vape also boasts a powerful heater that is capable of pre-heating in under 10 seconds. Despite the quick heating, the Firefly 2 model is considered by many to be second to none in taste, smoothness and production. A bit more cost-heavy, the Firefly 2 generally costs $329.

     

    • DaVinci IQ

      The DaVinci IQ is another pure convection vaporizer that brings a lot of great options to the table. This small unit is entirely portable, easily fitting in a pocket or palm, and yet is capable of producing powerful flavors and real heat that provides a top-quality experience. Many consider this model to be one of the best taste producing portable vapes on the market, and that may not be an exaggeration. The device also comes with a 10 year warranty and one replaceable battery. The DaVinci IQ can be found for $274.99.

     

    • Pax 3

      Despite being often looked at as a mini-vape, and so not considered a primary vaporizing option, the Pax 3 handles like a vaporizer twice its size, capable of producing a decent amount of flavorful vapor. One of the best features of the model is its App integration. The vape itself is easy to use and can work at just about any temperature, from 200 to 428 Fahrenheit. The App makes it easy to set your default preferences, but then to change those preferences easily with just a few touches. This vape is generally considered part of the luxury line but can be found in the same price range as those listed above, for $274.99.

  • FDA Deeming Regs Pushed Back 3 Months!

    The following press release comes from Cigar Rights of America announcing an extension of upcoming compliance.

    WASHINGTON, D.C. – Since July 15, 2016, Cigar Association of America (CAA), Cigar Rights of America (CRA), and the International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Association (IPCPR) have been pursuing litigation in federal court against the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), challenging the FDA’s May 10, 2016 Rule deeming cigars and pipe tobacco to be tobacco products subject to FDA regulation.

    In the context of the litigation, the FDA has announced an extension of upcoming compliance deadlines under the deeming rule.  Specifically, on May 1, 2017, the United States Department of Justice advised the United States District Court for the District of Columbia that the FDA will extend and defer enforcement of all future compliance deadlines under the Rule for three months, and that it plans to issue guidance to that effect.

    The United States Department of Justice informed the court that new leadership at the United States Department of Health and Human Services wish additional time to more fully consider the issues raised in the Rule.  For example, the deadline for submission of product listings, previously June 30, 2017, will now be September 30, 2017.  The three month extension applies to all future scheduled deadlines whether they fall in 2017, 2018, or later.

    IPCPR Chief Executive Officer Mark Pursell stated, “This is certainly good news for our retail and manufacturing community, given the nature of the rules the industry is facing, and the uncertainty they create. This gives everyone, the industry and the administration alike, time to revisit the regulation, to determine the best path forward.”

    Cigar Rights of America Executive Director Glynn Loope added, “This extension speaks to the questions raised in the suit, and the recognized need by the new administration to review the nature and impact of the proposed regulations. It also speaks to the virtue of our multi-front strategy to mitigate the threat of these regulations. It spans both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue, and a courthouse in between.”

    The associations will collaborate on conveying additional information to the industry as it becomes available.  A notice is expected to be published in the coming days further memorializing FDA’s extension of compliance deadlines under the Rule.

  • GPriv Review

    The GPriv, 2 battery touch screen SMOK kit is what you've been waiting for.

    I recently purchased the purple SMOK Gpriv 220W kit because purple is my favorite color.  And a girl should get what she wants.  It is purple and black (both the tank and the mod).  It is sleek and sexy.  I was super excited to pick this up.  It even comes with a sleeve if you are worried about dropping it, to protect the screen and the mod.  And actually I already dropped it once, and it still works just like it was brand new.  There are a lot of great things about this kit, but the main reasons why this is the kit for you is below.

    First: The hardware.  Tank - Smok Big Baby Beast & Mod - Gpriv 220W.  Batteries held in with magnetic side panel. It is clean, lightweight, and durable.

    Second: The functions.  Touchscreen with screen lock, time and date, number of puffs, wattage level and effect control, and battery level monitoring.  There is more, I just haven't gotten to play with it yet :)

    Third: The hit.  Smooth and controlled.  Not harsh.  It is clean and flavorful.

    Basically, it is everything you want when vaping your favorite flavors.  I currently have Reds Iced Apple E Juice by 7 Daze in my tank and it totally hits the spot.  I didn't want to even buy a new mod, because I was content with my Fuchai 200W, but it was time to be part of 2017 .  I am really happy with the SMOK GPriv 220W kit and I think you would be too.  Find it on our website or in the shop.  You won't be sorry.  It even comes in lots of different color options, so you might be able to find your favorite color just like I did.  I totally recommend this kit 10 out of 10.

     

  • California April 1st 2017 Tobacco Tax

    We Will Keep Updating the information with new posts once the state gives more clarification.

     

    Message from Cosmic Fog Vapors

    To our valued California customers,

    As you hopefully are already aware, starting April 1st all liquid nicotine (E-Liquid) products being sold into the state of California will fall under California tobacco product’s tax. There are many important things you must know as a business owner to make sure that you are ready and compliant with this new tax code as to not find yourself being liable for selling untaxed tobacco products. Cosmic Fog, through our position on the board of the California Smoke Free Organization has been negotiating with the Board of Equalization since the passage of prop 56 to make these new laws as least burdensome as possible for you.

    RETAILERS: Starting April 1st there are three main guidelines you must follow on all of the E-Liquid products you carry.

    You must obtain a tobacco products retailer license from the state of California.

    You may only buy nicotine containing E-liquid products from licensed California tobacco products distributors, wholesalers or manufacturers. You must receive and file a copy of every vendors license and keep on file while that product is on your shelf and maintain those records for a period of four years.

    Every product you purchase from a licensed channel must come with an invoice that includes the distributor/wholesaler/manufacturer’s license number with a separate line item showing the exact rate and total amount of the tax being charged on your order. You must pay this tax on every order and maintain these as records for a period of 4 years.

    What is most important to remember here is that all tax enforcement will be done at a retail level. Starting April 1st BOE enforcement agents will be entering your shop and asking you to show all of the documentation required for all of the products on your shelf. If you do not have this documentation, you as a retail license holder will be held liable.

    In an effort to prevent all confusion and offer the maximum amount of security to our valued customers, Cosmic Fog with be instituting a new policy starting April 1st. After April 1st, every bottle we sell into the state of California whether it be to a retail shop or to a wholesaler buying tax paid inventory to resell into CA, each and every bottle will be labeled with a CA TAX PAID Cosmic Fog sticker complete with our license number. This gives you an extra layer of protection when buying inventory from any sources that the merchandise is compliant. After April 1st you should never receive a bottle of Cosmic Fog, Liquid State or Next Day Vapor Products that does not have this tax label. Your existing unlabeled stock will still be okay to sell as long as you can show invoices and payment records that it was purchased before April 1st. At this time BOE has no plans to collect a retroactive floor tax.

    WHAT IS THE TAX RATE?
    This is the area that is going to most effect your day to day business operations. The amount of the tax is a percentage off of the price of the FIRST point of sale into California. California’s OTP tax is written in a way to directly benefit the companies that manufacture in the state of California. For these companies (such as us) they are allowed to carry BOTH a manufacturers as well as a distributors license. The board of equalization allows manufacturers to sell from their manufacturing side to their distribution side at the cost of manufacturing, making this the first point of sale in California.

    For example, if you order 1 bottle from us at a price of $10, Cosmic Fog sells that bottle from Cosmic Manufacturing to Cosmic Distriubtion at manufacturing cost plus any other costs the BOE requires be factored in. So if we assess the cost of manufacture at $1.00 per a unit, each bottle sold into California will carry a 27.3 cent tax. Making your total cost for the one bottle $10.27. At this time we are awaiting an acceptable cost of manufacturing to base these figures off of from our Tax attorneys and expect the tax on a 30 mL unit to fall between $0.30-$0.40 and the tax for a 60 mL unit to fall between $.55-0.65.

    EXAMPLE 2, NON CA MANUFACTURERS/OUT OF STATE DISTRIBUTORS

    Companies located outside of California CAN obtain a CA tobacco products distributor license to legally sell into the state of California. However, what is most important to remember is that the CA tax is based off the first point of sale into CA. If an outside distributor or company is selling untaxed product into the state of CA then the first point of sale will be the price charged to you. Meaning on that same sale of 1 bottle for $10 the tax will be based off of that $10 amount bringing the taxable amount to $2.73 and your total price to $12.73.

    Also please note that the tax rate of 27.3% is expected to change in July to an estimated 68% raising our the taxes to be collected on every unit sold into CA.
    Please contact us if you have any questions about bringing your business to compliance or if we can offer any support going forward. As always we will take every step to protect your business and be your go to source on all matter related to regulatory, tax and anything facing the future of our industry.

  • Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice Review

    Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice

    What does this taste like?

    What is this juice suppose to be?

    I dont know what this is but I like it!

    All quotes from customers here in our store in Costa Mesa. All ideas that pop into your head after a Vape of Air Factory's ?Mystery? E-Juice

    ?Mystery? E-juice is a new flavor from Air Factory that tries a brand new approach to the flavor profile for juice.  No definitive flavor profile is available from the company leaving the experience unhindered by subliminal messaging on the packing.  A Unique experience indeed!

    ?Mystery? is packaged in a standard non descriptive, cartoonishly designed box that explains very little of the juice.  The juice is contained in an over sized 100ML chubby gorilla bottle.  The juice is available in 0,3, and 6 MG nic.

    BUT HOW DOES IT VAPE

    That answer is not so simple, which is definitely apart of the apeal of the juice.  The juice has been brewed to vape clean and smooth.  ?Mystery? is great on your coils and is absolutely capable of fulfilling an all day vape flavor.  The taste is however, an absolute mystery.  Different people have given vastly different answers to what they believe the flavor profile is.  Without a written que to assist in deciphering the flavor profile Air factory has achieved somthing special indeed.  The flavor is absolutely fruity but not specific.  The flavor is sweet like a candy but not overly artificial.  A hint of sour is present but again, not specific.

    My initial thoughts were a grape based flavor mixed with taffy.  But with a sample size of over 100 people asked,  I was alone in my opinion.  Apple, watermelon, strawberry, lemon, and even pineapple were all the flavor profiles given to me.  The Image of the White Mystery Laffy Taffy definitely flashes in your mind as you vape this juice but what exactly does a mystery flavor air head taste like?

    While being unable to give a specific flavor profile on ?Mystery? one thing is for sure.  The juice is a winner.  The flavor is unique yet familiar.  Smooth enough to keep your tastebuds active and reach that coveted all day vape status.  Being unable to identify the true flavor profile of the juice has deterred very few from enjoying this very unique Juice

    Air Factory have produced a true winner with ?Mystery?  We here at Vaping Industries just wish we knew what the flavor truly was!

  • Scott Gottlieb Pro Tobacco Nominee For FDA Commissioner

     

    Scott Gottlieb New FDA Director Nominee

    President Donald Trump’s nomination of Scott Gottlieb to be the next commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration is a hopeful sign that the FDA’s illogical tobacco product regulations may soon end.

    The rules as they stand lump all nicotine-containing products as one in the same, regardless of what risks they pose, so that electronic cigarettes -- which are orders of magnitude safer than tobacco cigarettes -- cannot remain on the market unless their makers submit expensive and burdensome applications to the FDA. Combustible cigarettes, meanwhile, are free to keep killing more than 400,000 Americans a year, no questions asked.

    As a result, a large percent of electronic cigarettes stand to be removed from the market, leaving real cigarettes from the need to compete against safer products.

    Gottlieb seems to realize that this doesn’t make sense. He has written of the “public health virtue” of helping move the market away from combustible cigarettes and toward safer products that deliver nicotine but without the health risks associated with smoking.

    The federal government’s current approach is described in last year’s Surgeon General’s report on electronic cigarettes, which characterizes vaping as a “form of tobacco use” and notes that electronic cigarettes are “the most commonly used form of tobacco among youth in the United States.” The report repeatedly emphasizes that all forms of tobacco use, including e-cigarettes, are dangerous.

    There is a major problem here. Electronic cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, so vaping is not a form of tobacco use. Smokers who are concerned about their health but unable to quit nicotine, use e-cigarettes in order to continue inhaling nicotine without the risks inherent in analog cigarettes.

    The Surgeon General’s report explains that “e-cigarettes are considered tobacco products because most of them contain nicotine, which comes from tobacco.”

    MOST and not ALL is deliberate wording.

    Let’s be clear. If vaping is a form of tobacco use, then so is nicotine replacement therapy. And if “any form of tobacco use” is dangerous, then people who use nicotine gum and nicotine patches are also at risk. Obviously, it would be misleading to tell the public that the nicotine patch is a form of tobacco use. But the nicotine in a nicotine patch is derived from the same tobacco as is the nicotine in e-cigarettes.

    Another problem with the report is its unwillingness to acknowledge any difference in risk among various products. How can a product that kills more than 400,000 Americans a year be compared with vaping products and nicotine patches?

    The public relies on government health agencies to accurately communicate health risks. Vapors who read headlines suggesting that tobacco cigarettes and e-cigarettes are equal will be encouraged to return to smoking.

    The report also criticizes the tobacco industry for historically misleading the public about the relative risks of different types of tobacco products ("light" vs. regular cigarettes), but then engages in its own form of deception by equating tobacco cigarettes, whose risks are well-known, with tobacco-free products, whose risks are not. If there is any loss in public understanding, it’s not in underestimating the risks of vaping, but in overestimating them, a recent survey shows.

    The pitfall in exaggerating risks to scare children is that it doesn’t work. The risks associated with a behavior are part of what makes adolescents like it. Of course, adults want to protect kids from risks. But the challenge is not to stop youth from ever taking them; it’s to create an environment in which risks are minimized. The priority should be to keep kids off of real cigarettes.

    What’s more, efforts to scare kids away from vaping discourage many adults from quitting smoking.

    There is a way to regulate electronic cigarettes more sensibly: Congress should overturn the FDA e-cigarette regulations and substitute a framework that creates a separate category for e-cigarettes, with separate quality-control and safety standards; allow e-cigarette makers to innovate; and realistically communicates to the public the potential dangers of vaping.

    When talking to people about risks to their health, honesty is always the best policy.

Boasting over 300 world renowned tattooers, 100's of vendors, three full days of bands, and Low & Slow Car Show presented by Famous Stars and Straps, Musink is the US' premiere tattoo and music lifestyle event.

    Who is Travis Barker?

    The history of punk rock can be divided into two parts: punk before Travis Barker and punk after Travis Barker. The California born-and-bred drummer has been a stalwart in the game for at least two decades, and is known for, among other things, his technical chops (usually delivered with military precision), and his sadomasochistic approach to beating the shit out of a drum kit. He’s also the backbone, workhorse, heart, soul, and, frankly, the best musician in the venerable pop-punk trio Blink-182 (their latest album, California, claimed Billboard’s top spot in July, putting an end to Drake’s nine-week run). So it should be no surprise that Barker happens to be one of the industry’s most sought after drummers. (I mean, just look at his resume: The Aquabats, Transplants, Box Car Racer, +44, Yelawolf, Antemasque, not to mention collaborations with Rihanna, Lil Wayne, and Afrojack.)
