  • #Vapetiquette - Group Vaping

    vapetiquette group vaping

    Near the end of 1982, while the Internet as we know it was just a little newborn baby, some genius coined the term “netiquette,” to describe the unwritten, but implied rules for human behavior and interaction across the web. While we’ve pretty much broken every rule of netiquette that ever existed, there are still a few glimmers of hope for humanity.

    From holding the door for the next person as you’re walking in to 7-11, to giving up your seat at the bus stop for an elderly person to take a load off, to attending birthday parties for your friends’ children who are under the age of 5, to the venerated traditions of the “puff, puff, pass” phenomenon, we’ve still got this humanity thing locked down.

    So, how does vaping fit into helping the world spin as it should? Well, if it’s party time, you need to practice good vapetiquette, which is a word we totally just made up. Seriously, Microsoft Word is freaking out so hard right now. Vapetiquette. That’s right. Add to dictionary.


    Group Vaping 101 – Don’t Be Gross

    While your SideKick portable vaporizer is perfect for grabbing a little vape on the go, desktop vaporizers like the Super Surfer are definitely the best choice for a group setting. Whether you go with the whip assembly or a bag (the Super Surfer is capable of filling up to even a 10-foot bag), it bears mentioning that you and your comrades will be sharing the same mouthpiece during your vape session.

    Now, it’s true that sharing is caring, but that doesn’t count for viruses or other microbial goodies. If you’re dealing with the sniffles or with a cold sore outbreak, skip the desktop pass-around and enjoy a vape from your own SideKick.

    If you’re in good health and confident in your ability not to spread any cooties (keep in mind that circle, circle, dot, dot vaccinations expire the first time you make a car insurance payment), partake! But be conscious of your mouthpiece technique. Nobody wants to go next after you’ve tickled your tonsils with the mouthpiece.


    Group Vaping 102 – Puff, Puff, Pass

    It’s easy to get excited when you’re enjoying a little group time. However, manners must prevail. Fight the urge to take a giant, bogarting, Snoop Dogg lung-full. You can always refill that chamber, but wounds inflicted in the heat of group vaping take many moons to heal.

    Oh, and for goodness sake, pass to the left. ALWAYS PASS TO THE LEFT.


    Group Vaping 103 – Don’t Be That Guy

    You know what we mean. THAT guy. Like your cousin Eric who, despite having money for an Apple Watch, inexplicably never has money for his half of the delicious meat lover’s pizza you just ordered. We’re working through that.

    Anyway, if you’re headed to a group vape session, be sure and have something to bring to the table – refreshing drinks, tempting nachos, season one of The Wire on Blu-ray, a deck of cards to play rummy, or even some extra vaporizing material. If your host is insisting on providing all the good stuff, make a mental note to bring something extra for the next time. Pitching in for a good time will almost always mean you get an invitation for the next group vaping sesh.

    If you’re not on the group vape train yet, but you’re thinking it sounds awesome (it is), check out our Super Surfer vaporizer. Impress your squad with the world’s most versatile vape!

  • Vapeducation – The Grinder

     

    Available now!

    If you’re the proud new owner of one of our first-class vaporizers, firstly, congratulations! You possess one of the most innovative, versatile vapes on the planet. With legislation passing left and right, and vaporizing entering mainstream culture harder than ever, we thought it would be good to start a little series all about educating our adoring friends about the basics of our favorite past time.

    Besides your sweet new vaporizer and all its accessories, there are a few things you need to round out your vaping experience. But today we’re focused in on a vital piece of gear you need to properly enjoy vaporizing your favorite dried herbs and plants – the grinder.

    Now, if you live in New England, that last sentence may have conjured up images of giant sandwiches. And while a giant sandwich could be considered an important part of certain vaping routines, we’re actually talking about a mechanical grinder: one that will grind down your dried plant material into a palate-pleasing consistency.

    Our SideKick portable vaporizer holds up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs, but the moment you try and vape a whole loose leaf or a few stem-laden pieces, you may find more frustration than satisfaction. That’s because thorough vaporization depends upon even heating throughout the vaporization chamber. The more finely-ground your plant material, the more evenly it’s heated and ultimately, the better your vape.

     

    So, What Is a Grinder?

    Unlike the electric coffee grinder you bought when you were in your, “I can make drinks just as good as Dutch Bros. at home,” phase (no, you can’t), herb grinders are much simpler. While there are many different types of herb grinders, our favorites are the two-piece grinder and the four-piece grinder. Each offer specific benefits, depending upon your needs.

     

    Two-Piece Grinders

    This grinder comes in, well, two pieces. A toothed lid nestles squarely into a toothed base, like a miniature pair of circular, rotating crocodile jaws. Dried herbs or plants are placed between the two sections, then the lid is rotated against the fixed bottom, or the lid and bottom are rotated in opposite directions. This rotation causes the teeth inside to strip away stems and to grind the plant material into a finer, more vape-friendly consistency. Although a two-piece grinder doesn’t produce a separated grind like its bigger 4-piece brother, there are less parts to keep track of and operation is a breeze.

     

    Four-Piece Grinders

    Shockingly, this grinder comes in four pieces. A toothed lid sits on top, with another toothed grinding layer below it. Below these two toothed sections, a screen catches the larger ground pieces while the bottom reservoir catches the smaller pieces, pollen, or dry sift (sometimes called “kief”). Just like with the two-piece grinder, the top two sections are rotated in opposite directions and the final products are caught and kept either in the screen or reservoir sections.

    While you get a finely separated final product, the insides can get a little sticky while collecting certain types of resins and dry sift. But not to worry! Our sweet anodized grinders are dishwasher safe. So you can grind to your little heart’s content, buddy.

     

    Antonio’s Grinders

    This Massachusetts institution has been serving award-winning grinders and pizza in the Springfield area for more than 45 years. Try the chicken cutlet grindah. Wicked good.

    7th Floor Vapes offers a variety of different grinders to take your vape experience to the next level. From simple 2” 2-piece anodized grinders, to 4” 4-piece powder-coated grinders (yes, we figured out how to powder coat a grinder), we’ve got what you need to feed your vaporizing machine.

  • Essential Oil Spotlight: Bergamot

    Bergamot

    Despite the fact that its name sounds like an earth-type Pokémon, bergamot has a rich history in terms of health benefits in human society. A cultivar of the sweet lemon (citrus limetta) and the bitter orange (citrus aurantium), this citrus species is one of the few tropical fruits that also thrives in European soil. Which is handy, because the addition of bergamot essence has the magical ability to transform regular, European-style black tea into much more sophisticated Earl Grey tea. Fancy.

    Bergamot has been used for a variety of grooming and health-related tasks. It’s been used as an anthelmintic (something that expels parasitic worms from the body), an analgesic (something that relieves pain), an antidepressant, and even an anti-funk compound in its use as a primitive deodorant.

    While we’ve come a long way from rubbing citrus fruits in our armpits to dispel B.O., bergamot still has a wide variety of uses today in terms of health benefits. Here are a few reasons we love bergamot:

    1. Bergamot Is a Natural Stimulant

    Two of the compounds found in bergamot (namely limonene and alpha pinene) are natural stimulants, even possessing antidepressant properties. These amazing little powerhouses improve your circulation, which give you a feeling of freshness and joy while also providing a little boost of energy. Bergamot also stimulates certain hormonal secretions to help regulate your metabolism. Will vaping some bergamot after downing an entire delicious meat lover’s pizza help your body break it down so that there weren’t any calories involved? Well, it won’t NOT do that. Probably.

    2. Bergamot Aids in Digestion

    This sweet-smelling fruit also activates and increases secretions of certain digestive acids, bile, and enzymes that facilitate digestion (of that delicious meat lover’s pizza). It also synchronizes the peristaltic motion of your intestinal ocean, reducing strain during digestion. This syncing up of your gut helps with regularity, and can even help prevent gastrointestinal disease.

    3. Bergamot Is a Great Disinfectant

    There’s a reason many household cleaning products are citrus-scented. Before the advent of chemical industry, many (if not most) household cleaning products were made directly from or derived from citrus. That’s because some of the compounds found in bergamot and other citrus fruits are natural antibiotics and disinfectants. In fact, humans were so reliant upon citrus cleaners that when chemical cleaners were first available to the public, they didn’t sell – because they didn’t smell like citrus. So, chemical companies got wise and added citrus essence to their cleaners.

    Bergamot essential oil inhibits the growth of many species of germs, viruses, bacteria, and even fungi. This can go a long way not only in prohibiting infections in the mouth and skin, but also to keep your counters clean after you accidentally lay a slice of delicious meat lover’s pizza down on the counter and forget about it until this morning.

    This roundhouse kick of an essential oil is regularly used in bath bombs, skin care products, soaps, shampoos, and even added into bathwater a drop or two at a time. Not only does it add a layer of antibacterial protection, it also makes hair shiny with the added bonus of smelling delightful.

    In conclusion, we love bergamot even more than we love delicious meat lover’s pizza. And because they don’t make the latter in an essential oil (yet), Bergamot Essential Oil by Doterra is available on our website and makes a great addition to your vaping collection. Try using it with a ceramic flavor disc to add a wonderfully complex citrus flavor to your vapor. Or, diffuse a little bergamot essential oil in your Silver Surfer’s aromatherapy dish and let its stimulating properties float through your house.

  • Why You’re Extra Lucky to Be Around for This St. Patrick’s Day

    With that token greeting card day and our favorite marmot-themed holiday bygone, our attentions shift to that greenest, luckiest, booziest, most culturally-appropriating holiday of the year – St. Patrick’s Day. While you’ll find a detailed history of St. Patrick’s Day elsewhere in other dark corners of the Internet, we’re counting ourselves lucky this year that vaporizing is finally a thing.

    Besides being much better for you than smoking (you can read more about that in this blog post), vaporizing your favorite oils, herbs, and dried plant materials allows you to reap all their health benefits without damaging side-effects. Also, in our opinion, vaporizing is WAY better than these … let’s call them “alternative” … methods of ingestion, application, and inhalation. Here are some things you’re lucky aren’t still things.

     

    1. The Tobacco Enema

    No, we that wasn’t an autocorrect fail. Go back and read it again. Yep, it says, “tobacco enema.” This crazy contraption from the 1770s was used to blow tobacco smoke up the nose, into the mouth or, in more extreme cases, right up the keister. A page from the Royal Human Society 1774 explained that the Tobacco Resuscitator could even be used to revive people who were dead. Though, we suspect that tobacco’s stimulant qualities do have their limits.

    Lucky for you, our Sidekick Portable Vaporizer holds up to ¼ gram of your favorite dried herbs. So you can enjoy your favorite plant materials wherever you want. And it comes with absolutely no attachments for that other thing. Also, no resurrection powers. But it does have replaceable batteries.

     

    2. The Urine Cocktail

    Throughout history, many cultures prized urine for its ability to cure all sorts of diseases – from headaches, to sleeplessness, and even as a remedy for body odor. The breaking point? SCIENCE, of course. We feel bad for the panel of doctors who actually busted this myth. But besides smelling like the underside of a bridge or maybe helping with the rare jellyfish scenario, the consensus about urine is, “Yeah, don’t drink that.”

    Lucky for you this St. Patrick’s Day season, the Super Surfer Vaporizer comes with an aromatherapy dish that will let you enjoy your favorite melts or oils. So, if you smell a little ripe from too many burpees, or from hitting the taco truck a little hard, you can buy some shower time away from your date with a sweet-smelling apartment.

     

    3. The Ketchup Cure-All

    This one … just … wow. You may not know that this tomato-based, love-it-or-hate-it condiment went from being considered poisonous in the early 1800s, to being marketed as medicine in the 1830s. After a published paper claimed that tomatoes could treat digestive problems, Dr. Archibald Miles began travelling from town to town, selling his American Hygiene Pill. The problem was, “Dr. Miles” was really just, “Mr. Miles,” and his “Hygiene Pill” was really just, “dried tomatoes.”

    After crossing paths with another so-called doctor, Miles retired to his lab and formulated the all-new “Dr. Miles’ Compound Extract of Tomato.” This cure-all (that was actually straight-up ketchup) was said to remedy everything from jaundice and coughs, to rheumatism and indigestion. Some patients were even ordered to consume more than 1½ cups of ketchup each day. And while that, alone, might be the most unappetizing sentence we’ve ever written, we are VERY interested in checking out the pile of fries that would accompany that much ketchup. But, we digress.

    Lucky for you, our flagship Silver Surfer Vaporizer features an innovative whip connection angle which keeps your herbs in the wand (where they belong), and reduces the stress on your glass. So, you’ll be in the perfect position to vaporize some peppermint for that tummy ache. And vaporizing with the Silver Surfer means you won’t have to eat 12oz. of ketchup. See? Just … wow.

    Of all the blessings that come with being born after the end of the 19th Century, we feel especially lucky this St. Patrick’s Day that we can enjoy all our favorite plants and herbs without having to do anything weird. Also, the 21st Century has cake pops.

    But the luck doesn’t stop with delicious, frosted confections. You can also rack up some serious savings this month with our March Mania (which sounds a lot like the name of that basketball event that happens in March but is reasonably and legally distinct from said event) Sale.

  • The Completely Made-Up Origin of Groundhog Day

    Groundhog Day (or St. Groundhog’s Day as it’s called in Eastern Bavaria) is named for St. Groundhog – a 19th century monk of the Rodentia order who was famed for his study of natural weather patterns and his prophetic writings about a then-unheard-of man by the name of Bill Murray. St. Groundhog, or “Philip,” as he was known to his friends and family, lived a relatively quiet life in southeastern Germany, though frequently feuding with Germany’s favorite weather-predicting animal – a hedgehog named Norman Kardashian.

    Besides his obsession with collecting gold rings and running super fast, Norman spent most of his time talking about what an awesome weather predictor he was, though proof of his skills have yet to be discovered. Like the rest of his inexplicably famous family, Norman Kardashian was known throughout Europe; despite never having made any significant contributions to industry, science, economics, or the arts.

    Over time, St. Groundhog developed an algorithm loosely based upon Euler’s equation which would let him, with roughly 59% accuracy, predict the end of winter and the correlating start of spring using his shadow as the primary function in the equation. After some refining, a little liquid courage, and some public speaking lessons from a meerkat named Timon, St. Groundhog held his first public demonstration in a town square on Thursday, February 2nd, 1882.

     

    The Un-Groundhogging

    Suspicious of his rival, Norman and his shifty entourage of large-butted shrews showed up to observe St. Groundhog’s presentation. Jeering as he began to speak, Norman shouted, “You suck, Philip! You’ll never get this right and become a famous marmot who has an American holiday named after him!” Undaunted, St. Groundhog continued his presentation. Dismissing the crowd, he ended with three short words that have lived on in perpetuity, “Winter is coming,” predicting southeastern Germany would have 6 more weeks of winter.

    Not to be outdone, Norman immediately wrote an op-ed for the local newspaper about how his family, the Kardashians, were the best natural weather predictors on the planet and that the townsfolk should “keep up with them.” In his op-ed, Norman shamed St. Groundhog for his antiquated techniques and brazenly stated that winter was over. Thus, stirring the townsfolk into a frenzy of throwing away their big, puffy jackets in favor of khaki cargos and long-sleeve Def Leppard t-shirts.

    During the days following St. Groundhog’s demonstration, the temperature warmed…while St. Groundhog’s spirits dropped. Norman and his squad made hourly trips to the Rodentia Monastery, taunting Philip for making an incorrect prediction. They taunted day in and day out for 10 whole days, prompting St. Groundhog to humbly gather his few belongings, and set sail for America.

     

    A Groundhog, Transformed

    Though history tells us that his prediction turned out to be correct, as temperatures dropped soon after and the town languished in another month of bitter winter, St. Groundhog determined to never again be a victim of bullying. After deciding to live a quiet life of solitude, he sneaked aboard a ship bound for America.

    First landing near the Jersey Shore and being scared for his life, St. Groundhog quickly made his way west to an unsettled area of Pennsylvania. After woodchucking a little cabin, doing a Rocky boxing training montage, drinking his first birch beer, buying a yellow Steelers towel, discussing the philosophical genius of putting french fries on a sandwich with the Primanti Brothers, planting some sour diesel, and learning how to pronounce "Mount Worshintin," a super buff Philip crudely scrawled these chilling words on a large plank as a warning to following rivals, “A Violent Welcome to Norman and the Punks Who Taunt Me.”

    Norman Kardashian and his squad didn’t follow St. Groundhog to America. Instead they were run out of their village and, dishonored, began a generations-long tradition of trying on different kinds of makeup in front of mirrors and dating rappers. As such, St. Groundhog was finally able to continue his studies.

     

    The Day that Changed History

    In the summer of 1886, after most of the letters on his sign faded, human settlers stumbled upon St. Groundhog’s cabin. The sign now read, “Viol Welcom to Punks Who Taun e.” Since they had no idea what a viol was, and since they found a buff, well-read, super chill groundhog there, and since they thought it was cool-sounding, the settlers named the land, “Punxsutawney,” which roughly translates to, “hedgehogs are real jerks.”

    After a scarce harvest, the settlers were worried about being able to plant the next year. Remembering that St. Groundhog’s garden was always plush and full of organic goodness at just the right times, the settlers asked Philip what his secret was. Reluctant, Philip told the settlers of his meteorological studies and workout techniques for blasting his biceps.

    What happened the next morning, Wednesday, February 2nd, 1887 forever changed the course of history, and of Bill Murray’s career.

    Asking politely for a demonstration, the settlers gathered in a beautiful stretch of land called Gobbler’s Knob as Philip made his way up to a crudely-constructed stage. Nudging his ultra-buff groundhog body into a hollowed-out log, Philip closed his eyes. “Okay, Big Phil. It’s time to chew some gum or predict some freakin’ weather,” he said to himself. And St. Groundhog was all out of gum.

    Exiting his hollowed-out log, St. Groundhog erupted onto the stage like he was throwing open the doors to a CiCi’s Pizza. In one swift move, Philip looked out upon the crowd of at least eight people and then slowly scanned the ground for his shadow. It wasn't there. Philip's eyes glazed over as he used his tiny mammalian brain to work his trademark formula. Smirking, St. Groundhog coolly removed his sunglasses and said, “In the immortal words of Jean Paul Sartre, ‘Au revoir, winter.

    The townspeople erupted in applause and Philip finally got the recognition he deserved. His descendants, his very species, solidified their place in the history books of the world as being the very best natural weather predictors in the world, next to Jim Cantore.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
