  • 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?”

    As always, we’ve got you covered. Specifically, with our Universal Duff Jar. Take it away, BJ!



    bj duff jar video

    Is it an ash tray? Is it a storage receptacle? Truth is … it’s both. This snazzy innovation will let you catch all the duff from multiple vape sessions and store it safely until it’s time to unlock even more fun with your favorite plants and herbs.




    But What Can You Do with Duff?


    Can you turn it into grassy hills for your LOTR models? Yup. Can you grind it and sprinkle it onto a delicious meat lover’s pizza? Probably. Can you use it to fix a leaky pipe? Of course not, why would you even ask that? There are plenty of reasons to hang on to those sweet leftovers, however. From oils, to tinctures, to brownies, to lotions, to snack foods, and beyond.

    Our Universal Duff Jar fits any type of wand – from spherical to ground glass connections. And you can be sure you’re not losing any precious duff with the removal vent plug. Just place your wand on top of the jar and give a quick blow. Then, voila! You have trapped your duff for all your duffly enjoyment.

  • 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!

  • 7th Floor Vapes Summer SideKick Survival Guide

    sidekick survival guide

    While summer doesn’t “officially” begin in 2017 until June 21st, we consider summer to have arrived when the temperatures warm up and college breaks begin. So, don’t even start with all that equinox nonsense. IT’S GETTING WARMER, OKAY?

    With that in mind, it’s time for your Ultimate Summer SideKick Survival Guide brought to you by your friendly neighborhood 7th Floor Vapes. Here are 5 tips to help you survive the summer with your SideKick.

    1. Own a SideKick

    This one may sound a BIT like a “gimme,” but a crucial first step to surviving the summer with your SideKick is to actually own a SideKick. With 6 different color choices, replaceable and rechargeable batteries, our innovative Vortex cooling chamber, and a myriad of wordplay possibilities (i.e. “Sup, ladies? Have you met my SideKick?”), this handheld wonder is the last portable vaporizer you’ll ever buy. Don’t have one? Well, click here to buy one. Go ahead, we’ll wait. You need this.

    2. Protect Your SideKick

    In the words of Gandalf the Grey, “Is it secret? Is it safe?” The secret part is up to you. But you should definitely keep your handy dandy portable vaporizer safe from the world of summer. Besides the tin storage box that came with it, our SideKick Vaporizer Storage Bag is a sweet accessory to have around. This TARDIS-esque embroidered Chambray bag is bigger on the inside! It holds your SideKick, up to 6 spare batteries, a cleaning brush, and a ton of other stuff. Plus, it totally matches your shoes.

    3. Speaking of Batteries…

    Keep that puppy ready to rock! While enjoying a nice beach day, an evening of skee-ball, an afternoon of LARPing, a sampling of hard cheeses, or a drive-in theater screening of Santa Claus Conquers the Martians, there’s no greater buzzkill than dead batteries. Keep your rig ready to rock with a few spare batteries or our car charger to keep your SideKick running through your summer fun. Also, Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is a real movie. Like, somebody had to walk out of that editing room and say with a straight face, “Okay Steve, the movie is done.” You should watch it. Or don’t. Whatever.

    4. Speaking of Santa Claus Conquering Martians…

    Accessories! SideKick mouthpiece? SideKick bubbler mouthpiece? CUSTOM SideKick bubbler mouthpiece? Check, check, and CHECK. We’ve got the accessories you need to make your summer vaping a breeze.

    5. Keep It Clean, Jelly Bean

    Let’s paint a picture. You’re on the playground, spending most of your days. Chillin’ out maxin’, relaxin’ all cool. Maybe shooting some b-ball. When a couple of guys, who are up to no good, start making trouble in your neighborhood. Your mom gets scared. Your aunt and uncle get called. It’s a bad day, right?

    Now, what if b-ball is a metaphor for your vape, and those couple of guys were really grease drippings from a delicious meat lover’s pizza and a filthy internal screen that you forgot to clean? Well, you can keep your mom from getting scared by making sure your SideKick is clean. We’re big fans of the Agent Orange and Formula 710 cleaners. And you can pick up replacement screen assemblies, screwdrivers, and any other extra parts for your SideKick here.

    The moral of the story? The world is your oyster. Survive the summer in 7th Floor style with your SideKick portable vaporizer – the ultimate portable vape for the ultimate flavor!

  • 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!

    So how did we do? Did your favorite sidekicks make the cut? Let us know in the comments below or on social media which Star Wars sidekicks are your favorite!

  • Why a Cheap Vaporizer Isn’t Worth the Money

    cheap vaporizer 7th floor vapes

    You’ve undoubtedly heard the phrase that, “you get what you paid for.” And unless you’re a professional cat burglar who is getting what someone else paid for, this phrase usually holds true … even in the world of vaporizers. With the public perception changing for good, and with companies exploding onto the marketplace, competition for your vaporizer dollars has never been stiffer.

    Unfortunately, many new or first-time vape owners get duped by slick advertising and sub-par construction. A cheap vaporizer can lead to poor performance, dissatisfying vape experiences, and even mechanical problems like overheating and battery leakage.

    The fact of the matter is … that just like you can’t build a Dodge Charger on a lawnmower budget, you just can’t make a quality vaporizer with poorly-constructed parts. If you’re opting for a cheap vaporizer to save some money, it may end up costing you more in the long-run. Here’s why:

    Temperature Control

    As you may have read in some of our other blog posts, every vaporizing material has its own ideal vaporization temperature. And while vaporizers like our Silver Surfer have an adjustable temperature knob for precise control over the heat in the chamber, a cheap vaporizer may skip on this feature and just run at a single temperature.

    The problem? You may burn through your stash much more quickly than you needed to. Overheating or under-heating the material in the chamber can mean that you’re missing out on some of the benefits of the vapor. This means it could take much more of the plant material than normal to achieve your desired effects. Even if you got a smokin’ good deal (pun intended) on a vape, if you’re losing dollars in vape material, you’re no better off than when you started.

    Cheap Vaporizer vs. Quality Construction

    Your vaporizer’s overall construction plays a vital role in its ability to produce vapor and provide a comfortable, safe experience. And in our world, it’s all about the vapor path – um, the path that the vapor takes. We probably didn’t need to explain that.

    Our SideKick portable vaporizer, for instance, boasts one of the most innovative vapor paths in the world. Not only does our SideKick come with a hand-blown glass mouthpiece that connects into the unit to extend the vapor path as it comes to your lips, it also includes our unique Vortex Vapor system. This spiral-shaped insert can be removed from your SideKick, cooled in your fridge or freezer, and replaced back in to the unit. Then, as vapor passes through it, not only is the distance the vapor travels increased, it also cools to the touch. This means a smooth, pure, clean vape that’s full of flavor.

    While it all comes down to personal preference, a cheap vaporizer can lead to a harsh or even unpleasant vape. If you don’t enjoy it, you won’t use it. And that’s just money down the drain. It’s true that all vaporizers have their upsides and downsides, but be sure to do some research as to which vaporizer is best for you and your lifestyle. This blog post is a great place to start.

    Versatility in a vaporizer is also a key point to consider. As your tastes change and evolve, it’s important that your vaporizer grows with you. A good general rule of thumb is that it’s better to have additional features in your vape and not need them, than it is to need additional features in your vape and not have them.

    Reputable Companies

    As we mentioned above, vaporizing is becoming more and more popular as we delve deeper into the 21st Century. As you shop for a vape, be sure you choose a manufacturer who stands by their product with support and warranties against defects in workmanship. Good or bad, a company earns its reputation. Even if it means saving for an extra few weeks before pulling the trigger on a new vape, the wait will be worth it.

    At 7th Floor Vapes, we’ve been innovating in the vaporizer industry for more than 15 years. We’re committed to making the best vaporizers in the universe!

  • #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.
