  • 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. Pun intended. Our glass artisans at the Elev8 glass lab pump out some seriously awesome glass accessories for each one of the vapes in the 7th Floor Family.

    We’ve got a ton of other goodies to round out your vaping experience – from our Duff Jar and glass jars, to our character picks and high-quality grinders. And don’t even get me started on our Dime Bags, Sharice.

    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!

  • 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!

  • What Your Choice of SideKick Colors Says About Your Personality

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

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

     

    1. The Executive Silver SideKick.

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

     

    2. The Black Jack SideKick.

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

     

    3. The Blue Dream SideKick.

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

     

    4. The Gold Dust SideKick.

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

     

    5. The Green Machine SideKick.GreenSK

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

     

    6. The Panama Red SideKick.

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

     

    7. The Purple Haze SideKick.

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

     

    SideKick Colors

     

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

  • A Ceramic Heating Element and Why It’s Awesome

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

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

     

    One Heating Element to Rule Them All

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

     

    Purity like Frodo

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

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

     

    Longevity like Aragorn

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

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

  • 5 Ways a Vaporizer Can Get You Through Your First Semester

    For centuries, we’ve been brewing teas, chopping salads, and rubbing dabs of essential oil on our bodies. But eating, drinking, and rubbing on the skin aren’t the only ways to take in all the vital compounds in your favorite herbs and flowers. In fact, each of those delivery methods pales in comparison to our personal favorite – vaporizing.

    “Wait, so I can vaporize my favorite herbs, flowers, and oils?”

    In the immortal words of Mr. Miyagi, “Of course, Daniel-San.”

    These 5 herbs and flowers could help you focus during a study session, get a good night’s sleep, or even help you digest that 3:00am gas station burrito you totally shouldn’t have eaten (but we’re totally not judging).

     

    1. Green Tea

    Hailed the world over for its anti-aging and antioxidant properties, green tea can also provide you with a boost in energy and focus while you’re dialing in to get your study on. While boiling water can damage some of the polyphenols and flavonol found in this delicious-tasting plant, vaporizing green tea leaves much more of the good stuff intact.

     

    2. Lavender

    So if you spill a huge bottle of lavender oil all over your living room rug, are you very stressed or very relaxed? Thankfully, if you’re vaporizing this sweet-smelling plant, you’ll never have to find out. Lavender is commonly used in aromatherapy for its ability to keep you calm and relaxed. If you’re stressing about a test, pack your SideKick with up to a ¼ gram of lavender and exhale your stress away.

     

    3. Peppermint

    Calming Chamomile Tea Calming Chamomile Tea

    The super-refreshing King of the Mint Family is a staple for vaporizer veterans. Not only does peppermint leave you feeling alert and focused, it can also aid digestion and relieve abdominal discomfort. Peppermint is also an age-old remedy from headaches. Wonder-plant? We definitely think so.

     

    4. Chamomile

    Because of its amazing ability to combat anxiety and help promote relaxing sleep, chamomile is a common ingredient in bed-time teas. But the calming, soothing qualities of these daisy-like plants can be enjoyed even more with your vaporizer. Try a pinch of eucalyptus or peppermint with your chamomile for a relaxing bed-time experience.

     

    5. Thyme

    This evergreen herb and superstar in the culinary world contains a whole bunch of a neat antiseptic compound called “thymol.” While the mystery of thymol’s name may never become unraveled, its ability to keep your lungs in good shape and improve your digestive health are no joke. Thyme also has anti-parasitic and anti-microbial properties, meaning it can help cleanse your system from harmful microbial colonies. And as an added benefit to your thyme vaporizing experience, you could say “It’s Thyme Time,” for a little bit of dad-joke satisfaction.

     

    Our Silver Surfer line of high-quality vaporizers are a great choice for your home or bedroom, and The SideKick by 7th Floor Vapes is the best choice for vaporizing your favorite dried flowers and herbs on-the-go.
