  • The Solution for Smokers Suffering with Asthma

    For as many years as smoking has been around, it seems as if we’ve conjured up just as many “smoking alternatives.” From old school snuff and plug tobacco, to the more scientific nicotine gums and patches, for generations we’ve been trying to move away from smoking for one reason or another. In fact, one company was even putting R&D dollars into nicotine-infused bottled beverages; which is easily the strangest potential smoking alternative we’ve ever heard of.

    Aside from ash tray water, the trouble is each of those alternative-to-smoking methods has their drawbacks – problems in disposing of waste, inconsistent levels of key compounds, the awful taste of peach-flavored tobacco, as well as certain detrimental health effects. So, what’s the solution for anyone looking reap the benefits of certain dried plants and herbs while keeping any less-than-desirable side-effects to a minimum? You may have guessed this was coming… but (spoiler alert) the answer is VAPORIZING.

    Smokers suffering with asthma have been stuck between the rock of needing the health benefits of plant material and the hard place of not being able to breathe during and after smoking. Because of this, traditional combustion (smoking) is both a blessing and a curse. While the good stuff inside certain plants and herbs can actually help to alleviate certain symptoms of respiratory discomfort, the negative effects of traditional smoking can simultaneously wreak havoc on the respiratory tract – especially so for anyone with existing respiratory conditions.

    Essentially, for asthma sufferers, any relief provided by smoking plant or herb material is almost nullified by the drawbacks that come with smoking. It’s hard to justify a medicine that makes you sicker, or a solution that alleviates one symptom only to make another one worse.

    Because it removes the actual smoke, the unnecessary chemicals, and the superheated air that go along with combustion, vaping is an ideal solution for anyone suffering from asthma. In fact, our SideKick portable vaporizer features a ceramic heating chamber that can hold up to a ¼ gram of dried plants or herbs. Not only does this mean you get to reap all the benefits of sweet organic goodness, it also means you never have to be without relief – at home or on the go.

    Vaporizing is also a great solution for anyone with COPD or weak lungs. Our Super Surfer vaporizer features a fan-driven forced air system with variable speed control for use with a vapor bag valve system. That’s an engineering way to say that the Super Surfer will handle the work of pushing vapor into a bag that can then be used to “push” vapor into the lungs, which means even those with low inspiratory capability can still enjoy the positive effects of their favorite dried plants and herbs.

    While there are still a ton of different methods for getting all the good stuff in, there’s really no solution like vaporizing for keeping all the bad stuff out. Here at 7th Floor Vapes, we’re very proud of the products we manufacture and of the solutions those products provide to people in every walk of life.

  • The Ultimate 7th Floor Vapes Holiday Gift Guide

    Now that the Black Friday dust has settled and your stores of leftovers have been reduced to the smallest upcycled Cool Whip containers in your fridge, it’s time to train your sights on that ever-growing holiday gift list. Like in all things, however, 7th Floor Vapes has your back! Here’s our no-holds-barred gift guide for all the persnickety people in your life. Just because we love you.

     

    Gift for the Modern Smeller

    Two words – Aroma. Therapy. Now combine them. What do you get? That’s right. AROMATHERAPY. From the ancient Greek meaning, “stuff that smells good and also makes you feel good,” aromatherapy is the it-gift for anyone in your life who’s constantly telling you that your allergies are really just vitamin deficiencies and that you should eat more raw local honey.

    In all seriousness, aromatherapy can go a long way not only to soothe your aching respiratory tract, but also to help keep your immune system running strong, and to bring some good vibes to your apartment. Start with Da Buddha Vaporizer, add our DBV Glass Aroma Top (in black or clear), and pick up a few of our scented oils and wax melts. You’ll be spreading holiday cheer and cinnamon bark deliciousness for years to come.

     

    Gift for the Fancy-Pants

    Like fashionista Cher from Clueless, trend-savvy Tom from Parks & Rec, and my cousin Brittany, there’s probably someone in your circle of influence who enjoys the finer things in life. For those who splurge on saffron-infused ketchup, $100 toothpaste, and buying snacks from the movie theater concessions counter, we recommend the Super Surfer Ultimate Vaporist Package.

    Not only can your lucky gift recipient “treat yo self” with the world’s most versatile desktop vaporizer, they also get a custom padded bag, an aromatherapy top, and every accessory needed to enjoy a luxury vaping experience. Seriously, you wouldn’t believe the list of items this package includes. Tommy Timberlake would be proud.

     

    Gift for the Herbal Purist

    In similar tradition to the Shaolin Monks of Henan Province, herbal purists have sophisticated vapor palates and high expectations for the vaporizing experience. Actually, we’re not totally sure whether Shaolin Monks are into vaping. But if they are, we’ve definitely got them covered. Because we put our roots down in the great state of Colorado, we’re no stranger to these purists. In fact, we have the perfect package for even the most discerning herbal connoisseur.

    Cue the first vaporizer ever to employ a ceramic heating element and pure, delicious glass-on-glass airflow – THE SILVER SURFER. We’re so obsessed with your vaporizing experience that we use only the finest components and assemble each unit by hand right here in Colorado Springs. Add a hand-made glass marble temperature knob, pick, and even a glass whip kit, and you’ve got the Silver Surfer Herbal Package. It also comes with an instruction manual!

     

    Gift for the Star Wars Super Fan

    You probably have at least one friend or family member who just won’t shut up about Rogue One. And while we’re as game as anyone to watch a movie starring Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen, AND Forrest Whitaker, proper Star Wars fans are about as loyal as they come. Instead of buying that Ewok/Gungan chess set you’ve been eyeing, get the Lucasfilm-Lovers in your life something they’ll REALLY enjoy – plays on words.

    Our Darth Vapor Shirt (courtesy of our friends at Herbivore Designs) is not only more pun-filled fun than Hoth Chocolate, it also perfectly complements our versatile handheld vaporizer – THE LIFE SABER. This super smooth vaporizer features a ceramic heating element and an all-glass vapor path for the cleanest, tastiest vapor. The Life Saber also comes in five midichlorian-friendly color options – Obi-Wan, Darth Maul, Pre Vizsla, Mace Windu, and Silver. Trust us, the Force will be with you.

     

    Gifts for the People You Forgot You Had to Buy Gifts For

    It’s entirely possible (albeit probable) that you have your life together WAY more than your aunt Claudia; who, every year, completely forgets that about half the people in her family even exist. Instead of raiding the As Seen on TV section at the drugstore, we’ve got you covered with our line of Dime Bag Lifestyle Bags as well as a full line of 7th Floor Vapes apparel.

  • The Best Herbs for Respiratory Health This Winter

    Unlike your abs because you haven’t been hitting the gym lately, your respiratory system is constantly at work. And if you live in high-altitude areas like we do, your respiratory system is doing serious work. Whether you’re awake, asleep, or somewhere in between browsing Facebook, your lungs are hard at work pulling vital oxygen into your system.

    As the days of the year tick by and the temperatures drop, your immune system gets a bit more compromised. Because your body is busy using energy to keep you warm and alert, your respiratory system may not be able to filter out all the bacteria, dust, spores, viruses, and other pollutants you happen to come across.

    Unless you’re still living in Vault 111, your system is pretty much under constant attack from outside irritants. With that in mind, you should give your respiratory system a little boost this winter with these super-tough herbs.

     

    1. Peppermint.

    Cool Peppermint Mojito Cool Peppermint Mojito

    For most people, winter is marked when the Pumpkin Spice everything makes its full transition to peppermint everything. This is an especially popular herb in wintertime recipes for good reason. Peppermint contains menthol, which not only soothes sore throats but also relaxes the muscles of your respiratory tract to encourage better breathing. Along with its antihistamine effects, peppermint also makes a great, natural decongestant. Plus, peppermint has the added bonus of being delicious.

     

    2. Oregano.

    When Sal over at Villapiano’s Pizza is sprinkling a little extra oregano on your meat lover’s slice, he’s actually doing you a big favor. Oregano contains a ton of nutrients, vitamins, and other trace minerals that act as a booster to your immune system. Not only does it help support good overall immune health, oregano is also great for clearing the way for airflow through your nasal passages. Whether in an essential oil or in dried form, oregano is one of those “super-herbs” that you should always keep on hand.

     

    3. Plantain Leaves.

    If you’re familiar with Shakespeare’s comedy “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” you know that when Costard hurts his shin, it’s plantain (not Tylenol) he cries out for. That’s because even as far back as the 1500s, plantains have been prized for their anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and analgesic properties. When it comes to your respiratory system, plantain leaves can work their magic to help relieve a cough, a tickle in your throat, or just about any other lung irritation – especially irritation caused by dry air.

     

    4. Eucalyptus.

    Eucalyptus is the greatest thing to come out of Australia since Russell Crowe. Or maybe we have that backwards. In any event, eucalyptus is a common ingredient in throat lozenges and oil diffusions for good reason. Natural eucalyptus contains this nifty little compound called cineole, which fights nasal congestion, soothes inflamed sinuses, eases coughs, and acts as an expectorant to help loosen mucus in your lungs. Plus, “eucalyptus” is super fun to say.

     

    DoterraGroupedWhether you’re packing your SideKick with up to a quarter gram of dried herbs, or you’re using the aromatherapy dish on your Super Surfer to diffuse oils, give your respiratory system a good boost this winter with these wonder-herbs.

  • What Your Choice of SideKick Colors Says About Your Personality

    If you already took the plunge and picked up the world’s most elegantly-designed portable vaporizer (that would be our SideKick), then you’re already well-aware of its perfect blend of function and form. You also know that the SideKick comes in 7 sleek color choices, but do you know what your choice of SideKick color says about your personality?

    For that answer, we turn to…SCIENCE! (Well, color psychology is a pseudo-science, but bear with us.)

     

    1. The Executive Silver SideKick.

    If the Executive Silver color option caught your eye, you’re probably intuitive and insightful. People who love the color silver also tend to be introspective and creative – particularly when it comes to essays, song lyrics, or poems about your dog. You’re also more futuristic than sentimental, which means you might be scheming to take over the world while enjoying your favorite herbs in your SideKick. We’ve got our eye on you, Executive Silver.

     

    2. The Black Jack SideKick.

    If your favorite SideKick color is black, you’re sophisticated and opinionated in equal measure. People who favor black are often very artistic and sensitive with a taste for control. You have a realistic world view and a simple approach to life. Plus, your Black Jack SideKick goes with everything. Move over, Piper Chapman. Black is the new black.

     

    3. The Blue Dream SideKick.

    Like the Caribbean Sea, if your favorite color in the SideKick palette is blue, you’re calm, cool, and full of exotic species of marine life. Besides being able to find peace and tranquility in even the most chaotic of circumstances, people also find you to be lovable. Which makes sense, because blue is also the favorite color of Zooey Deschanel. And she’s adorable.

     

    4. The Gold Dust SideKick.

    Face it. You’re fancy. A penchant for the Gold Dust SideKick model means that you radiate personality. You’re likeable, you’re compassionate, and you have a love for things that are the best quality…which is probably why you chose the SideKick in the first place. You’re pretty selective when you choose your friends, but that comes back to you in the form of your friends being loyal. Maybe because they think you have gold…

     

    5. The Green Machine SideKick.GreenSK

    You love safety and security, whether you’re providing it or enjoying it. Those who prefer the Green Machine are also in touch with nature, and are usually pretty blunt about whatever they’re thinking. Your reputation matters to you and are probably an admirer of the Green Bay Packers jerseys and Avril Lavigne’s hair.

     

    6. The Panama Red SideKick.

    Red is the classical color of passion, ambition, boldness, and Twizzlers. You’re likely extroverted, confident, and determined. Maybe you’re a heartbreaker, too, because studies have shown that both men AND women are more attracted to a person wearing red than any other color. Are we saying your Panama Red SideKick will help you get a date? Well, we’re not NOT saying that…

     

    7. The Purple Haze SideKick.

    Ah, purple. The color of royalty and of large cartoon drink pitchers who inexplicably break down walls to announce their arrival. If you’re a fan of the Purple Haze SideKick, you have a great respect for other people and you have an idealistic view of the world. Fans of the color purple are also most likely to identify with Prince songs.

     

    SideKick Colors

     

    Lastly, if you own ALL 7 COLORS of the SideKick Portable Vaporizer, it says that you’re basically our favorite person ever and that you have awesome taste in vaporizers and bulk purchases.

  • How to Choose Your First Vaporizer

    Well, today’s the big day, slugger. You’re making the leap into the world of vaping, and we’re proud of you. With that decision out of the way, it’s time to make another – what vaporizer should be your first? That’s a major question. But don’t worry. We’ll be gentle.

    Navigating the choppy waters of the vaporizer ocean is quite a task for even the most seasoned vaping sailor. There are vaporizers that cost a kajillion dollars, and others that cost less than a Pumpkin Spice Latte. Some vapes are simple looking, while others look as if you’d need an engineering degree to operate them. Some vaporizers are only for dried herbs, and some only vaporize liquid. All of these, plus a bunch of other options, could leave you feeling confused. Not to fear, though. 7th Floor Vapes has your back.

    Let’s take a short walk through your personal needs, and then we can narrow down the perfect vaporizer for your lifestyle. Lie back, relax, and answer these questions:

     

    1. What Do You Want to Vaporize?

    It may sound like one of those “duh” questions, but the first step to choosing a vaporizer is to narrow down what you want to vape. While there are some exceptions, most vaporizers are designed to vaporizer either liquids (you may have heard this referred to as “e-juice,” but we’re not totally comfortable with that term), or dried herbs and plant material.

    This could potentially be an expensive lesson to learn, if you start with a unit that can only do one thing, but you later decide you want one that does the other thing. Be sure to check with the manufacturer of the vaporizer to determine what, exactly, you’re able to vape in each unit you’re considering.

    If you’re not sure which is right for you, you could go straight for the kill shot and get the Super Surfer Vaporizer. It’s basically the Swiss Army Knife of Vaporizers. Seriously, there’s even an aromatherapy attachment.

    After you figure out WHAT you want to vaporize, the next question to answer is…

     

    2. Where Do You Want to Vaporize?

    You may be thinking, “Wait, why does it matter where I want to enjoy my billowy clouds of sweet organic goodness? Aren’t all vaporizers the same?” Well, no. If you’ve already browsed around the Internet, you’ve probably seen three major styles of vaporizer – the Pen Vaporizer, the Hand-Held Vaporizer, and the Desktop Vaporizer. While they’re probably pretty self-explanatory, they’re all very different in terms of portability and design.

    The Super Surfer we mentioned earlier is a great example of a desktop vaporizer. Typically, a larger units have larger heating elements and larger chambers for holding vaping material. These are a great choice for you, if you’re interested in high-quality vaping around the house. Desktop units are also a great choice for medicinal purposes – those with COPD, or smokers with asthma.

    If you need a vaporizer that’s better on the go, then a unit like the SideKick Personal Vaporizer is the best choice for you. This vaporizer features a very generous ceramic heating chamber that holds up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs. Plus, you can actually stir the bowl WHILE you’re vaping, instead of needing to stop and stir. This hand-held vaporizer provides the best balance between function and portability. And you’re all about balance, you cheeky little fox, you.

    So, now that we figured out the “what” and the “where” (which butted right up next to the “how” and the “when”), it’s time to address the “who” and the “why.”

     

    3. Who Will Be Vaping with You?

    This sounds a little weird, but it’s also an important question. If you’re interested in sharing a vape session with some of your closest friends, you’ll probably want to consider a vaporizer with a great battery life, or one that plugs directly in the wall. The SideKick we mentioned earlier has replaceable batteries. This way, you’ll never have to look like a lame when your vaporizer runs out of power and the party gets weird.

    Vape inducing meat lover's pizza Vape inducing meat lover's pizza

     

    Speaking of parties, the Silver Surfer Vaporizer is great for those. If you want to gather the squad, order in some pizza, and settle in for a vape session at the spot, it’s best to have a unit that relies on good ol’ fashioned AC current. Plus, with the Silver Surfer, you can customize your vaporizer to fit your unique style. AND …pause for effect… the Silver Surfer has a variable temperature control so everybody in the room can enjoy their own inhale speed (which may or may not be directly affected by the amount of meat lover’s pizza that was just consumed).

    By this point, you should have a pretty good idea of what sort of vaporizer best suits your needs. The final question is…

     

     

    4. Why Do You Want to Vape?

    Vaporizing has a wide appeal for a lot of different reasons. Some have a medical necessity for a bag-compatible vaporizer that can help “push” medicinal vapor into their lungs. Others may be conventional smokers who suffer from asthma who want the positive effects of herbs, but need a solution for reducing stress on their bronchioles. Still others may be looking for an alternative to harmful combustive smoking like cigarettes, joints, cigars, or pipes. And some may just be looking for a single unit that will do more than just vaporize “e-juice” (seriously, that’s almost as shudder-inducing as the word ‘moist’).

    While the old adage is true (typically, you do get what you pay for), you should decide what kind of financial investment you can afford to make into vaporizing. However, if you’re transitioning to a vape from smoking, you’ll DEFINITELY be saving money in the long run. Besides the cost of dried herbs, if you’re a pack-a-day smoker, a SideKick would pay for itself in a little more than 7 weeks.

    Another factor to consider is vaporizing accessories like cases, cleaning implements, and consumable parts. Most of the vaporizers from 7th Floor Vapes come with just about all the accessories you need for a great vaping experience right out of the box, but there are some incidentals you’ll need to factor in.

    Also, you should always buy new. Your creepy cousin Jake might have a “sick deal on a vape, bro,” and that eBay listing from Hong Kong MAY have an attractive price tag, and that Craigslist ad may not seem THAT sketchy, but it’s best to get a new unit directly from a reputable manufacturer. Besides being able to provide you with repair services as necessary, not much trumps a manufacturer’s warranty. Jake certainly can’t. He needs to get his life together.

    If you’ve made it this far, it’s time to let you blossom tiger lily. You can browse the entire catalog of high-end vaporizers at 7th Floor Vapes by clicking here.

    Until next time…

  • Super Surfer Temperature Setting Basics

    So, you did it. You made the jump and invested in the Mack Daddy of all vaporizers – The Super Surfer by 7th Floor Vapes. You now wield the mighty power of the world’s most versatile vape. However, with great power comes great responsibility, young Spider-Man.

    You already know that the Super Surfer boasts a taste-enhancing glass-on-glass design. You’re up to speed on the Super Surfer’s ceramic heating element that provides adjustable heating throughout the chamber. And you’re already aware that your Super Surfer can diffuse essential oils, heat your pumpkin spice wax melts for whole-house autumn-smelling goodness, as well as perfectly vaporize your favorite dried herbs and flowers. And now it’s time to go pro.

    Your Super Surfer is SUPER efficient when it comes to heating plant material, but in order to optimize your vaporizing experience, it’s important to keep temperatures in mind. While you should definitely experiment with your own herbal blends, here are some starting temperature points for some of the more popular herbs, roots, and flowers:

     

    Low Vaporizing Temperatures

    To put the following herbs and flowers on their best behavior, they should be vaporized at around 100°C to 125°C (212°F to 257°F).

    • Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla)
    • Clove (Syzygium aromaticum)
    • Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
    • Lemongrass (Cymbopogon citratus)
    • Maypop/Passionflower (Passiflora incarnate)
    • St. John’s Wort (Hypericum perforatum)
    • Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
    • Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum)
    • Yerba Mate (Ilex paraguariensis)

     

    Medium Vaporizing Temperatures

    Coffea arabica Coffea arabica

    This list of green goodness is best heated to around 130°C to 175°C (266°F to 347°F).

    • Coffee (Coffea arabica)
    • Damiana (Turnera diffusa)
    • Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)
    • Ginkgo/Maidenhair (Ginkgo biloba)
    • Guarana (Paullinia cupana)
    • Mexican Tarragon (Tagetes lucida)
    • Spearmint (Mentha spicata)

     

    High Vaporizing Temperatures

    No, that’s not a play on words. These herbs, roots, and flowers will vaporize best at temperatures of around 180°C to 200°C (356°F to 392°F).

    • Aloe Vera (Aloe vera)
    • Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale)
    • Ginseng (Panax ginseng)
    • Green Tea (Camellia sinensis)
    • Hops (Humulus lupulus)
    • Kava Kava Root (Piper methysticum)
    • Kola Nut (Cola acuminate)
    • Maca Root (Lepidium meyenii)
    • Marshmallow (Althaea officinalis)*
    • Valerian Root (Valeriana officinalis)

     

    LEDLights

    As you experiment with different blends, you should also experiment with the 7 different colors and 11 different settings for the LED mood lights in your Super Surfer. Are you a “lavender with turquoise mood lights” kind of gal? Maybe you’re a “spearmint with pale blue mood lights” sort of fellow. Or, maybe you’re rocking a party of one with a “green tea and medium color flash” approach. Whatever your blend, and however you roll, your Super Surfer will serve you well for years to come.

    The world is your oyster, you vaporizing super star. Ride the wave!

  • Why You Should Stop Smoking (and Start Vaping)

    In the timeline of human achievement, vaporizing technology is relatively new. Aromatherapy as whole, however, is definitely not. For centuries upon centuries, we’ve been heating herbs and plants and inhaling their inner goodness. But because of a lack of portable vaporizing technology through the millennia, we’ve also been stuffing those plants and herbs into little bits of paper, setting them on fire, and inhaling them THAT way.

    That’s right. We’re about to have “The Smoking Talk.” Because just like your Aunt Glenda, we care about your health. (But we don’t bake cookies nearly as well as she does.)

     

    Why Smoking Is Bad

    Besides a few definite, hopefully obvious, no-nos (castor plants, belladonna, water hemlock, and strychnine, to name a few), it could be argued that the overall medicinal effects of just about any dried herb are overwhelmingly positive. From tobacco, to marijuana, to a variety of other plants and herbs, each of these little bits of green goodness can have a positive effect upon your body and health. But seriously...don’t ever ingest castor plants, belladonna, water hemlock, or strychnine.

    Effects of smoking tabacco Effects of smoking tabacco

    In the case of smoking, the material being smoked isn’t the issue so much as the delivery method is. Like the great big cartoon bear taught us, fire gives rise to smoke. And smoke is the archenemy of your respiratory system. Combusting dried herbs not only creates superheated air and chemicals, it also ruins most of the compounds in those herbs that produce the positive effects we mentioned.

    “So you’re saying smoking is bad because it produces smoke?” Well, yes. Besides the fact that tobacco smoking still kills more than six million people around the world each year, smoke inhalation unrelated to tobacco smoking accounts for more than 10,000 deaths each year in the US alone. In fact, the best case scenario for inhaling superheated air, chemicals, gases, and particles is irritation and thermal damage to your insides. The bottom line? Smoke and your lungs are a bad match.

     

    Why Vaporizing is Good

    The American Heart Association jumped on the vaporizing train way back in 2014 in a published study that found vaporizing caused no inflammatory response, no decrease in forced expiratory volume, and promoted healthier overall pulmonary function compared to smoking. Which is a fancy way of saying vaporizing is way better for your lungs and for your immune system.

    Because there’s no such thing as a basil cigarette or a lavender cigar, vaporizing also opens the door for inhaling plants and herbs beyond the mass-produced and mass-marketed materials produced by tobacco companies. With a portable vaporizer like the SideKick by 7th Floor Vapes, you can pack up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs or plants into the chamber and enjoy all their benefits on the go.

    It’s the 21st Century. And technological developments have provided a new solution to the problem that created the necessity for smoking in the first place. Jump on the Vaporizer Train. You’ll be glad you did!

  • The Health Benefits of Vaping Lavender

    Long before Lavender Brown from House Gryffindor joined Dumbledore’s Army, and long before lavender was unfairly labelled as the color “Soap” in the Crayola palette (seriously, look that up), the flowering plant lavender was used the world over for religious and medicinal purposes. In fact, ancient texts indicate that lavender oil has been used by humans for more than 2,500 years.

    One of the first names for lavender was the Greek word “naardus,” after the Syrian city of Naarda; where lavender was grown and pressed into oil for use in medicine and cooking. As if it wasn’t versatile enough, the Romans even used lavender as an addition to their baths.

    Fast-forward to the 21st Century. Though we’re still using it in bath bombs, the health benefits of lavender are front and center as its ancient healing properties meet modern vaping technology. Here are some of the possible health benefits of vaping lavender:

     

    1. Lavender is a Great Stress Reliever.

    Those Romans were onto something with their ancient lavender bath bombs. Studies have shown that using lavender before bedtime can even help you relax and promote a good night’s sleep. In fact, one published study found that lavender immediately helped men and women who suffered from insomnia.

    That’s lavender-eamy.

     

    2. Lavender Can Help with Headaches.despair-513529_1280

    Though many people apply lavender essential oils directly to their temples for relief from tension headaches or migraines, vaping lavender can be even more effective in relieving your headache symptoms. The European Journal of Neurology found that inhaling lavender for just 15 minutes could bring significant relief from migraines. This is a great reason to keep your SideKick Portable Vaporizer by your side and packed with up to ¼ gram of dried lavender (and some peppermint for good measure).

    Ah, the sweet scent of relief. Pun intended. Don’t judge.

     

    3. Lavender Has Awesome Antioxidant Properties.

    Without getting too sciency, the miracle of human life involves some pretty intricate chemical processes. Probably the most common microbiological risk factor for nearly every human disease involves the presence of free radicals in the body. These toxins and pollutants can be introduced via your environment or even the food you’re eating. Now, that sounds super-scary, but your body does a boss job of releasing nifty little enzymes called “antioxidants” to banish free radicals from your system.

    However, if your body’s free radical burden is great enough (due to a compromised immune system or your Cheetos and Mountain Dew Code Red diet), your body can have a tough time producing those antioxidants. The solution? Put down the Cheetos and pick up some lavender. Researchers in China found that lavender gives you a Gretzky-esque slap shot assist in producing three of your body’s biggest, baddest antioxidants – catalase, superoxide dismutate, and glutathione.

    So besides smelling awesome and helping to round up Blast-Ended Skrewts in a Hogwarts Care of Magical Creatures class, lavender can go a long way to promote healthy sleep, relieve headache symptoms, and protect your body from disease.

    With the ultra-versatile Super Surfer Vaporizer from 7th Floor Vapes, you can vape dried lavender, diffuse your favorite lavender essential oils, or even enjoy lavender wax melts as you step into your Gryffindor pajamas and settle in for sweet dreams.

  • Is Vaporizing Only Good for Herbs?

    Just in case you’ve been off-planet or living in a remote wilderness and you’re not sure what vaporizing actually is, here’s the 10-cent rundown: vaporizers use a heating element to heat organic materials to an optimum temperature for vapor release of the materials essential compounds. How’s vaporizing any different than smoking? For starters, with vaporization, there’s no fire. Which, in turn, means no combustion and no unnecessary loss of organic materials. There’s also the added bonus of no irritation to your throat, skin, or eyes.

    A common misconception is that vaporization is only for dried herbs (and one herb in particular). And while that was true at one point, vaporizing has come a long way, baby. The miracle of high-quality glass, ceramic heating elements, and convection has led to the advent of a new generation of vaporizers.

    The Super Surfer Vaporizer by 7th Floor Vapes, for example, is the world’s most versatile vape. With its impressive 24/7, 10+ year lifespan and its innovative engineering, your vaping experience doesn’t have to stop with just herbs. Here are some uses for the Super Surfer:

     

    1. Vaping Herbs

    Just to be clear, the Super Surfer doesn’t vape everything BUT dried herbs. It vaporizes everything AND dried herbs. The glass-on-glass design and the ceramic heating element mean that you’ll get all the purest, best-tasting flavor without any of the side effects of inferior vaporizers. And because there’s no flame involved, you don’t waste money burning herbs you can’t enjoy. There's probably a joke in there somewhere about money burning a hole in your pocket.

    2. Vaping Leaves and Flowers

    Because of the unique angle of the glass heater cover and wand, the Super Surfer allows you to vape leaves or flowers without the worry of them falling into the heating element. This opens up a whole new world (don’t you dare close your eyes) of organic options for your vape experience – spearmint, valerian, passion flower, catnip, lavender, and even lemon balm can be vaporized directly without first being pressed into essential oils. And speaking of oils…

     

    3. Diffusing Oils & Wax Melts

    The Super Surfer comes equipped with a high-quality glass Aroma Top. Meaning you can diffuse your favorite essential oils or wax melts as you enjoy aromatherapy. There’s no reason to cut your scent session short, either, as the Super Surfer is designed for rigorous 24/7 use. But the sweet-smelling perks don’t stop there. The innovative design of the Super Surfer actually allows you to vape and diffuse AT THE SAME TIME. What a time to be alive.

     

    4. Vaping with Bags

    One of the greatest features of the Super Surfer is its fan-driven forced air system with variable speed control. The forced air system allows for the use of a bag attachment that can fill even a 10ft. bag. This allows for the purest, cleanest vapor to be delivered evenly and consistently over the course of your vaporizing session. Perhaps the most important perk to this feature is that it allows anyone with weak lungs or even those with COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) to enjoy the many benefits of vaporizing.

     

    With its impressive array of innovative features (we didn’t even get started on the LED mood lighting), and its incredible versatility, the Super Surfer is easily the best choice for the discerning vape user.

  • A Ceramic Heating Element and Why It’s Awesome

    If you’ve taken a moment (or maybe a few hours) to pour through the wide spread of portable handheld vaporizers on the market, you’ve probably seen your fair share of different heating options. Though it’s probably the most important part of a vaporizer, the heating element is also largely the most ignored. Out of sight, out of mind, right? Yeah, not so much.

    The heating element is the heart and soul of your vaporizer. If the heating element goes, the whole unit goes. And while some vaporizer users focus on fancy-schmancy aesthetics and wild accessories, vaporizer veterans are nuts about their heating elements. And the King of the Hill is the ceramic heating element.

     

    One Heating Element to Rule Them All

    So what’s a heating element? As the most integral part of your vaporizer, the heating element regulates the temperature of the air that catalyzes the active ingredients in your vaporizing material as the air passes through it. More simply, it heats your dried herbs, flowers, or essential oils to the perfect temperature in order to let you vape in all the good stuff. While there are many different kinds of heating elements, a ceramic heating element is the best way to go. Here’s why:

     

    Purity like Frodo

    Like the stalwart, heroic heart of Frodo Baggins, a ceramic heating element produces the purest vapors. How does this happen? Because you’re only getting the vapors that come from the material in the chamber, and not from any second-hand reactions from the heating element itself. After all, a lack of smoke and secondary material combustion is one of the many perks to vaporizing instead of smoking. A vaporizer that combusts just doesn’t make any sense.

    Also, a ceramic heating element has the highest melting point and boiling point of any other kind of heating element. So like Frodo staving off the evil call of Sauron, your ceramic heating element can handle heat upwards of 2800°F. That’s like a Mordor temperature.

     

    Longevity like Aragorn

    The quality of your heating element is directly tied to the longevity of your vaporizer. In other words, the Fellowship of the Vape is only as good as its sword-carrying Ranger. With that in mind, the ceramic heating element in our SideKick heating chamber has been engineered not only to hold up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs, but it also boasts a 2,000-hour heater guarantee. That’s almost 5 and a half years of daily vaporizing for 1 hour each day. Just like Strider, your ceramic heating element is gonna keep on tickin’.

    The bottom line? A heating element is the most important part of your vaporizer. So it pays off to take a close look at what’s making your vaporizer tick. With a ceramic heating element, The Vortex heating chamber, digital temperature control, and a built-in stirring mechanism, the SideKick by 7th Floor Vapes is a great choice for your portable handheld vaporizer.
