News and Shenanigans from 7th Floor Vapes

  • How to Make Cannabutter with ABV Weed

    Cannabis is often regarded as a product of divine alchemy, due to its almost limitless number of uses! The seemingly unassuming plant is used in an increasing number of industries, and benefits everyone; from the individual looking to have a good time, and the chef looking to improve their butter with delicious cannabis kick!

    Making Cannabutter with ABV "Already-Been-Vaped Weed"

    Cannabis can be taken in a variety of ways, including vaporizing. This particular method is especially beneficial since it allows for the ABV weed to be used once again in Cannabis recipes, such as cannabis butter. Following is a recipe which you can use to make your own cannabutter.

    Ingredients:
    • An ounce of ABV cannabis per ounce of butter (1:1 ratio)
    • Cheesecloth
    • Strainer (medium to fine mesh)
    • Slow cooker or crockpot
    • Water

    Using a slow cooker will work best for cannabutter. Also, make sure to keep the 1:1 ABV weed/butter ratio, for the ideal strength cannabutter. You can go lower for the weed, but not too low since this can quickly undermine any effects of the cannabis.

    Preparation:
    1. Grind the cannabis to an almost powdery texture. Make sure not to turn it into a fine powder, since this will make the butter full of particles which is not an ideal finished
    product. However, if it is already in a powder form, you can still work with it.
    2. Put the butter and the ground weed into the pot, along with enough water to cover both the ingredients.
    3. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients together, taking care to separate the weed in case any clumps form.
    4. Turn the slow cooker to the lowest setting, and leave the mixture to simmer for 24 hours at least. Do not increase the temperature of the pot, since this will result in the butter
    turning brown due to scorching.
    5. Turn the crockpot off after the 24 hour time period and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
    6. Use the cheesecloth to line the strainer, so that it is slightly looser over the top of the strainer.
    7. Strain the liquid through the cloth and the strainer, into a large pot. Do it slowly, to allow for the mixture to drop down into the bottom container while also filtering.
    8. Once the cooking pot is empty, let the mixture inside the cheesecloth drop, before finally squeezing any leftover liquid out from the cheesecloth.
    9. Once you have all the filtered liquid out in the bottom pan, refrigerate all of it overnight. This will easily separate the butter from the water, while also allowing the butter to
    group together into usable chunks.

    Et voila! Your delicious cannabutter is ready to use with whatever recipe you wish. You can use it to spread on bread, or you can use it baking recipes. If using it for the latter purpose, make sure to expose it to direct heat. Instead of laying some on top of the pie or recipe, mix it in. This will prevent the THC from being burnt off.

  • Legalization of Cannabis in Florida 2017

    cannabisThe state of Florida has long contained a large number of marijuana proponents, all vying for legalization. When last year the bill; namely Amendment 2, was passed, it came as a glimmer of hope for Florida residents; a hope for a future when marijuana is not cracked down upon, and recreational as well as medical marijuana will not be heavily regulated.

    Expectations were rife, but now it seems that Floridians may not be able to enjoy marijuana as freely as they thought they would. And while the bill does make some allowances, they are neither as expansive, nor as non-restrictive as one may expect.

    A 71 Percent Majority Vote

    The announcement of the vote brought about a wave of excitement in the local Floridian community. Many assumed that the will of the people will finally be listened to, and cannabis will be made legal once and for all, within certain limitations of course. This was due to a sudden drive to lobby for legalization in Florida, after states, some smaller than Florida, already enjoyed legal cannabis.

    Finally, when the voting results came in, a massive 71 percent voted in favor of legalization. It has to be noted here that Florida plays host to a massive retiree population, most of whom have expressed opposition to the recreational use of cannabis. This can also be deemed as the reason why Amendment 2 did not get passed with an even bigger vote.

    Allowances made in Amendment 2

    Amendment 2, within the Florida Constitution, gives allowance to qualified physicians to certify for the medical use of marijuana. These were only for individuals who suffered from potentially debilitating conditions, and those who otherwise required very heavy doses of painkillers and related medication to aid in the treatment of their conditions.

    The bill was finally signed on June 23rd, 2017, by the Governor of Florida. Almost instantly, there were proposed regulations being announced, mostly based on the medicinal use of marijuana. Chief among the regulations was the definition of ‘debilitating medical conditions’, equating them to ‘medical conditions’.

    Overall, the regulation is being seen as far too strict, and in favor of certain individuals in positions of power who would otherwise benefit, from strictly regulating cannabis usage, whether it is recreational or medical.

    General Opinions regarding the Strict Regulation

    The general opinion regarding the marijuana regulation is that Florida has played host to the criminal import of marijuana and other hard drugs, as well as operations of cartels. This is being seen as a ploy to maintain the status quo, as well as the profits that certain officials and individuals make from the existence of this status quo.

    On the other hand, it is admitted that the legalization in Florida is bound to raise a significant amount in taxes, as well as open up myriad new businesses across the state, providing employment to those seeking it within the industry. Whether or not these proposals are entertained in the future remains to be seen.

  • True or False? Some Vaping Myths Debunked.

    vaping myths 7th floor vapes

    If you watch the evening news, or spend any time browsing the Facebook feed of that “one” friend you have, you’re well-aware that vaping myths are everywhere. Maybe your crazy uncle Kevin has you convinced that vaporizers are cleverly-designed alien technology designed to steal human DNA. From vaporizers that were designed by tobacco companies to explode (so that users would buy more cigarettes), to vaporizers that don’t really vaporize (and just produce finer smoke), we’ve heard some doozies in the realm of vaping myths.

    Crazy uncle Kevin and conspiracy theories aside, we thought we’d take a moment to examine some of these vaping myths once and for all. Occasionally, there’s a nugget of truth to the vaping hype. Many times, however, vaping myths are bunk.

     

    1. Vaping Is a Great Way to Stop Smoking

    TRUE. In case you didn’t already know that smoking is super bad for you, let’s go ahead and clear this up. SMOKING IS SUPER BAD FOR YOU. In addition to all the chemicals used for processing and the presence of noted carcinogens, there’s no such thing as a “safe” smoking method. Why? Because you’re still inhaling smoke, which is never a good thing for your respiratory system.

    You can read more about why you should stop smoking here. But if you’re on the hunt for a way to kick the butts, our vaporizers can help! In fact, the American Heart Association even recognized vaping as a safer alternative to smoking. Plus, you can vaporize way more than just tobacco. Amirite?

     

    2. Vaping is Bad for the Environment.

    FALSE. Just like for your body, vaping is also better for the environment. An estimated 1.69 BILLION pounds of cigarette butts wind up as non-biodegradable toxic trash each year. In terms of weight, that’s the equivalent of 322,642 fully-loaded Ford F-150 pickup trucks. Besides making a dent in the world’s cigarette butt waste, a 2016 study found that exhaled vapor particles decayed and evaporated in seconds.

    Vaporizers from 7th Floor Vapes also feature rechargeable batteries and our Dime Bags are made from super-tough, eco-friendly hemp. Are we going the extra mile? We're going the extra 7 miles.

     

    3. Vaping Provides a Solution for Those Suffering with Chronic Lung Disease

    TRUE. Many people suffering with asthma or COPD find relief in certain plants and herbs. But in some instances, inhaling smoke causes more negative side effects than positive effects. Vaping provides a vital balance between being able to enjoy the positive effects of certain plants and herbs while also protecting the lungs from the negative effects of smoking.

    4. Vaping Leads to Teen Smoking

    FALSE. Like many vaping myths, this was circling social media and news outlets for a while before one study from the CDC settled the matter once and for all. Not only does vaping NOT lead to teen smoking, it’s inversely proportional. For anyone who skipped statistics class that day, this means that for every increase in vaping in a study group, there was an identical decrease in smoking.

     

    5. (Not Vaping Myths Related) O'Doyle Rules

    TRUE. O’Doyle does, in fact, rule.

    o'doyle rules vaping myths

  • The Universal Duff Jar (and Why You Need One)

    duff jar where to buy

    Some people call it “duff.” Some people call it “AVB” (already-vaped buds). Some people call it the “Space Cowboy.” Some people call it “Maurice.” Whatever you call it…don’t throw it away. The crispy, golden-brown leftovers (duff) in your vape can be used for a variety of different purposes – from the culinary to the cosmetological.

    “But 7th Floor Vape Blog Writing Overlord, how do I harness the power of the duff?”

    But What Can You Do with Duff?

  • Can Your Vaporizer Help You Sleep?

    vaporizer help you sleep

    SPOILER ALERT – Yes, your vaporizer can totally help you sleep. Now, you can try and figure out how to make that happen on your own, or you can just keep reading. The path is yours to choose, young Skywalker. Keep reading? Great choice!


    The Stress Problem

    While there are certainly some medical exceptions, for most people the root cause of insomnia is stress. And in case you missed that memo, stress isn’t so great for you. In fact, insomnia is just one of the many negative impacts that high stress levels can have on your body.

    Learning yoga, eating right, keeping your relationships healthy, and working from home to avoid driving are all ways that you can reduce your stress. The downside is that almost none of those things can happen right away. If you’re operating at a sleep deficit while trying to master the wounded peacock pose, for instance, you could be adding to the stress problem. And more stress means less sleep, and less sleep means more stress. Not to mention that a yoga accident could end you up in the hospital or totally ruin your yogi cred. Vicious cycle? You betcha. Wounded peacock pose really hard? Yup. Still reading? We knew you would be.


    The Sleep Solution

    Sure, over-the-counter and prescription drugs can help in some cases, but many times the side-effects can be worse than the insomnia. A good night’s sleep is a great way to start the comforting ascent into a stress-free lifestyle and your 7th Floor Vaporizer can help you get there. You may be asking, “BUT HOW, 7TH FLOOR VAPES BLOG-WRITING OVERLORD? HOW?!

    With convenient innovation, of course! Our flagship vaporizer, the Silver Surfer, is the most customizable vape on the planet. Not only can you vape your favorite herbs and flowers, you can also vaporize essential oils with the Essential Oil Kit (EOK), and the Aromatherapy Dish even allows you to diffuse wax melts while you vape. It’s like a one-two punch to your insomnia.

    Though we do recommend you perform your own due diligence in deciding which herbs and oils to enjoy, here are a few that are famed to promote better sleep:

    1. Valerian Root. This tall, perennial, flowering plant has been used all over the world for centuries to reduce the amount of time it takes to fall asleep, as well as to improve the quality of sleep.
    2. Lavender. You might’ve read about this purple-hued wonder shrub in another of our blog posts. Whether you brew a warm cup of lavender tea, or enjoy the essential oil, lavender is prized for its relaxing properties.
    3. Chamomile. Nope, it’s not the brand name of a nighttime tea. Chamomile is so much more. It’s actually a daisy-like flower that’s been used for hundreds of years for soothing and calming restlessness.
    4. Passionflower. Not to be confused with the fruit of a similar name which can be found in certain packages of Starburst, this beautiful flower can calm your mind and promote a sense of relaxation.

    If you’re having trouble sleeping, and you’re already the proud owner of a vaporizer from 7th Floor Vapes, relief could be just a few minutes away. Beat the stress, eat some delicious meat lover’s pizza, get some sleep, and Ride the Wave!

  • 6 Essential Oils Your Mom Will Love (Seriously)

    essential oils mother's day

    Rick-rolling you? This close to Mother’s Day? OF COURSE we wouldn’t do that to you. This really is a 7th Floor Vapes Overlord-Certified Blog Post all about 6 essential oils your mom (or your mother figure) will totally love.

    If you’ve ever bent near a plumeria bush and taken in its gentle, tropical scent … then you’re already well acquainted with essential oils. The same compounds that give our favorite plants and herbs their scent can be harnessed from the organic material. Then, we can put it into little glass bottles and enjoy the scent of eucalyptus wherever we go. Without actually having to lug around a whole eucalyptus tree. It’s terribly convenient.

    Aside from the perfect preservation of its scent, a plant’s essential oil also contains many or all the compounds in the plant that we use for medicinal, detoxifying, relaxation, or general health purposes. Let’s run through six essential oils that will make your mummy dearest smile on Mother’s Day.


    1. Lime Essential Oil

    Known around the globe as half of the Sprite flavors and a garnish for fajitas, limes have a distinct smell and taste. Lime is a member of the citrus family. And just like the rest of the squad, limes contain high concentrations of limonene – a hydrocarbon compound that’s great for cleansing and purification. Adding a drop of lime essential oil to mom’s water will add a refreshing, stimulating burst of flavor. Or, Mom could diffuse a little lime in the aroma top of her Super Surfer. Just throwin’ that out there.


    2. Wintergreen Essential Oil

    We know what you’re thinking – “But 7th Floor Vapes blog-writing overlord, it’s not even winter!” Yes, you’re right. But in the immortal words of Eddard Stark, “Winter will be here again in a few months probs.” The solution to a lack of winter? Wintergreen, of course! This essential oil comes from the wintergreen shrub found in the rural mountains of Nepal. You’re familiar with wintergreen from gum, candies, toothpaste, and retirement homes. But what you may NOT know about wintergreen essential oil is that it’s great as a massage oil after exercise or working around the house. One note of caution, though. A little dab’ll do ya.


    3. Eucalyptus Essential Oil

    Have you ever seen a stressed-out koala? We haven’t either. That’s because there’s no such thing as a stressed-out koala. And THAT’S because this favorite food of adorable Aussie bears not only helps to cleanse the air (and even surfaces), it’s also great for relaxation. After a long day of work or chastising you about your college grades, Mom can add a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil to her bath and enjoy a clear, refreshed mind.


    4. Cinnamon Bark Essential Oil

    Since we got winter covered already, if your Mom is more of an autumn, cinnamon bark essential oil may be her favorite. We get this fragrant spice from the cinnamon tree, which actually grows to 45 feet high. Besides being a natural insect repellent, a apple pie additive, and the name of a really confusing DC comics character, cinnamon also has a whole bunch of health benefits. Mom can add a couple drops of cinnamon bark essential oil to her tea to soothe a sore throat. Or, she could diffuse it in her Silver Surfer Vaporizer to help boost her immune system. Which, in turn, is a great way to bribe her for more pies.


    5. Sweet Fennel Essential Oil

    Ahhhh. Sweet, sweet fennel. This ultra-versatile herb finds a use in Gujarati cuisine, Chinese five-spice powder, German salads, and fennel seeds are even the primary flavor component in the Italian sausage on your delicious meat lover’s pizza. So, yeah…fennel’s been around the culinary block. But it’s also been a health staple since the days of ancient Rome. Sweet fennel essential oil can help promote healthy digestion, support a healthy respiratory system, and even improve circulation. Mom will love it like she loves to remind you to put on a jacket when it’s nippy out.


    6. Ginger Essential Oil

    Sourced from Madagascar, you say? Can be used for more than just a sushi garnish? Also describes the world’s most attractive beards? Why, yes! Ginger is basically awesome. You know it’s an unique little kitchen spice. But did you know that ginger also aids in digestion? In fact, ginger essential oil can even help you with carsickness. So, if you’re taking Mom on a little road trip this Mother’s Day, she can place a drop of ginger essential oil in her hands and inhale it to keep from getting the Nissan Nausea. We just made that up, but it would be a terrible name for a car. Unless the car only had three wheels, but 4 places for wheels. Digressing…


    Of course, these are just OUR favorite essential oils for Mother’s Day and beyond. What other super-thoughtful gift could you get your super-mom? A Super Surfer Vaporizer! We know she’ll love it.

    Or, you could get your mom THIS for Mother’s Day.

  • The 7 Greatest Sidekicks in the Star Wars Universe

    star wars side kicks 2048x680

    May the Fourth Be with You, 7th Floor Friends!

    While it may not be a national holiday (yet), we take Star Wars Day,” as it’s sometimes called, VERY seriously around here. In honor of our second-favorite holiday, and in honor of the sweet deals you can get right now on our LifeSaber and SideKick handheld vaporizers, we thought it would be a good time to unveil our unofficial list of the 7 Best Star Wars Sidekicks.

    Well, it's official to us. But it's not canon.

    Before we get started, it should be mentioned that your favorite sidekicks may not be on the list. But that’s okay! If you think we overlooked someone, tell us who you think should’ve made the cut (and why) in the comments below. You’ll also notice that there are no Jedi or Sith on the list. Wielding The Force is a pretty clear guarantee that nobody will ever really call you a “sidekick.”

    Oh and, obviously, SPOILERS AHEAD. Let’s get started!

     


     

    Number 7: Bib Fortuna

    Bib Fortuna from the Star Wars Wikia

    With a name that sounds suspiciously like a seafood pasta dish, Bib Fortuna is number 7 on our sidekick list, if not only for his blind loyalty. Bibby was right-hand man to Hutt crime boss Jabba. And it’s easy to see why. Jabba managed to find the only dude in the Outer Rim Territories who’d hit as many branches on his way down the ugly tree as Jabba himself had. Yikes.

    Cold, calculating, and disturbingly pink, majordomo Fortuna watched a young Anakin Skywalker put a pod race smack-down on Sebulba in Episode I. Then, farther into the Galactic Civil War, Bib was introduced to the next generation of Skywalkers. After watching his boss capture and enslave Princess Leia during a failed Han Solo rescue attempt, Bib Fortuna solidified his place in cinematic history as the worst door guard ever. He let Luke Skywalker into the Hutt Hut while Jabba was fast asleep. This kicked off a long string of events that lead to Jabba and Bibby both meeting an untimely end.

     


     

    Number 6: Bo-Katan

    Bo-Katan from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Bo-Katan Kryze sets the standard for badassery on her homeworld of Mandalore. One-time assistant to Governer Pre Vizsla in the Mandalorian terror cell Death Watch, Bo-Katan ended up on the right side of the history after aligning with the Jedi and even driving a power-hungry Darth Maul off her planet.

    She’s basically the Star Wars equivalent of Batman – wielding grappling hooks, dart launchers, a jetpack, and her trademark dual blaster pistols, Bo-Katan was a deadly warrior. Plus she touched a darksaber once. That’s like our dream come true.

     


     

    Number 5: Sabé

    Sabé from the Star Wars Wikia.

    This royal handmaiden to Queen Amidala makes our list of the best Star Wars sidekicks for her flawless decoy skills. Posing as the queen, Sabé tricked the Federation as Viceroy Nute Gunray offered up a treaty that would legalize their invasion. And she played the part of the Queen while negotiating with the Gungan forces, too.

    So basically, she ensured that Queen Amidala was safe in crisis situations. Which in turn meant that Amidala and Anakin could get down, which means that Luke Skywalker could be born, which means Mark Hamill could play him, which means he could get super-famous, which means he could have a Twitter account that’s super-famous, which means we could enjoy his tweets while researching articles about sidekicks.

     


     

    Number 4: BB-8

    BB-8 from the Star Wars Wikia.

    This 40lb. bundle of astromech droid awesomeness singlehandedly clued us in to the fact that The Force Awakens was going to be an awesome movie. And it’s no wonder Poe Dameron chose BB as his right-hand droid. Besides being equipped with a holoprojector, an arc welder, and a torch, BB-8 keeps a tight eye on Poe’s jacket. And it’s a fly jacket.

    BB-8 and his human, Poe, saved the day during the assault on Starkiller Base, pulling off a Skywalkeresque move that caused the planet-weapon’s core to destabilize. This lead to some pretty satisfying special effects and solidified BB-8’s place in our hearts and on this list.

     


     

    Number 3: Nien Nunb

    Nien Nunb from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Ol’ Pancake Face. Where do we even begin? Firstly, Nien gets cool points just for being loosely associated with Lando Calrissian. You don’t walk into the presence of coolness and walk away unchanged. With a storied rebellion career that spanned 3 decades, Nien Nunb was around for some of the most crucial (and awesome) moments in the entire Star Wars saga.

    He co-piloted the Millenium Falcon with Calrissian during the battle of Endor, rescued a bunch of Alderaanians, developed a serious reputation as a master smuggler, and was one of just 7 surviving X-wing pilots after the assault on Starkiller base. Plus, he looks awesome as LEGO.

     


     

    Number 2: R2-D2

    R2-D2 from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Luke’s sidekick and everyone’s favorite chirpy, ultra-handy droid Artoo managed to go his whole life with no memory wipe. This left him with an unmistakably masculine, adventurous, and fun-loving attitude. From serving the likes of Queen Amidala, Bail Organa, Anakin Skywalker, and ultimately to Luke himself, Artoo was front-and-center for many of the major moments in galactic history. As if that wasn’t cool enough, Artoo even appeared in an episode of Sesame Street in the 1970s. Unfortunately, though, Oscar didn’t pop out of Artoo. Hashtag missed opportunity.

    Artoo is often ranked as the best robot ever from film or television, even being inducted into the Robot Hall of Fame in 2003. And it’s easy to see why. His arc welder, buzz-saw, flawless hologram skills, and his confusing but ultimately useful rocket boosters helped provide a level of comic relief and relatability we’d never felt for a robot before or since. Our 3.5’ mechanical buddy has stolen a place in our hearts for good.

     


     

    Number 1: Chewbacca

    Chewbacca from the Star Wars Wikia.

    Topping our list of Star Wars Sidekicks is 7 and a half feet of brown-haired, blue-eyed awesomeness. Chewie defines the perfect sidekick to a tee – he’s loyal, tough, resourceful, a great shot, and speaks mostly in unintelligible growls and howls. Chewie has done it all - Wookie warrior, resistance fighter, pilot, smuggler, and general of Kashyyk forces alongside the legendary Master Yoda. Our favorite Wookie has played vital roles in the overthrowing of the Galactic Empire, all the while playing the perfect wing man to Han Solo. There’s a pun in there somewhere – wing man, sidekick, pilot. You get it.

    Puns aside, Chewie held his own against the nastiest baddies the galaxy had to offer with his trusty, custom bowcaster. Which is easily the coolest weapon a non-Jedi or non-Sith could ever hope to hold. Underneath his rough, hirsute exterior is the heart of a lover and a warrior. That’s why Chewie is all aces in our book!
