b. Portability – the biggest advantage is that it is easy to take with you anywhere you go. Vape pens are pocket sized and lightweight, and the best vaporizer pens can be used for multiple sessions before you need to recharge.
* Comparable levels of some metals have been reported for FDA-approved nicotine inhalers as well.Depending upon your view of FDA regulations, you could take this as an “all clear” on metals and e-cigs. One difference between inhalers and e-cigs that may impact exposure is that the vapors from FDA inhalers are absorbed in the mouthrather than the lungs like e-cigs.
If you are faced with committed teenage smokers (who are probably also using other prohibited substances like drugs or alcohol), perhaps the best you can do is foster switching to e-cigarettes. Of course, do explore their interest in getting help with quitting smoking from quit-lines. For less-involved users of e-cigarettes who do not smoke regular cigarettes, encourage that regular use be avoided and that nicotine use be limited as much as possible.
I have the Snow Wolf 200w TC. This thing is so fun I can hardly put it down for long. I have the limited edition with the gun metal finish. It also has the updated chip on this model. The first gen snow wolf 200 had some issues that were addressed with the new version. The only cons so far are
Consider your lifestyle. If you’re always on the run, you’ll want a smaller vape pen. Compact vape pens are easy to conceal in your hand or pocket, making for a stealthier vaping experience when you’re in public. If you’re relaxing at home, you can opt for a bigger vaporizer pen if you’d like. The bigger the vape pen, the stronger its battery and heating system.
It depends on the type of cough… whether it’s a dry, scratchy cough or whether it’s a wet, loose cough. For dry, scratchy coughs, herbs that are soothing and cooling (like marshmallow root and honey) to the tissues are best. For wet, loose coughs, herbs that are drying (like sage and thyme) are best. If your cough is dry, but you feel like mucous is stuck and you can’t cough it up, soothing and expectorant herbs (like linden and elecampane) help your coughs to be more effective and at the same time soothe those irritated tissues. You don’t want to stop a cough… you want to help get the excess mucous up and out. Other than that, herbal antivirals (like elderberry) are best to help the body overcome the virus that’s causing the cough. Hope that helps!
Wick – This is the material found in a coil that absorbs e-liquid and wax thus optimizing vaporization. For e-liquid, this material is usually silica or cotton and for wax, quartz and ceramic it is quite common.
(Note: This is a twisty glass blunt pipe, need to be used with lighter, not a battery powered device.BUT GOOD TASTE:). Twist clockwise to ash and refresh. Note: This is a twisty glass blunt pipe, need…
For beginners, the k anger tech subox nano is nice, it doesn’t come with a battery so be prepared for that, but 70 for a sub ohm box mod that allows temp control all the way from 0.1-50 in .1 increments really isn’t bad. It’s my first sub ohm piece I’ve owned and I’m learning on it about temps, taste, clouds and coils on it. I always used to assume a higher temp was better, now with this piece I’m finding out more of the intricacies that different temps play on your vaping experience. Personally I use Charlies chalk dust dream cream and Cut wood bird brains (fruity pebbles flavor) on my box, box vape extremely nicely and the flavors are amazing
Historically, ether (the first volatile agent) was first used by John Snow’s inhaler (1847) but was superseded by the use of chloroform (1848). Ether then slowly made a revival (1862–1872) with regular use via Curt Schimmelbusch’s “mask”, a narcosis mask for dripping liquid ether. Now obsolete, it was a mask constructed of wire, and covered with cloth.
Coil-less – Coilless atomizers do away with coils altogether. Coil-less vape pens feature bucket-shaped atomizers. Material is heated more efficiently this way, making for smoother, tastier vapor. Cleaning is also easier with coil-less atomizers.
Apologies Christopher. We were going to write the article straight after, but haven’t got around to it yet as we have just been so busy with reviews and other stuff. We should have an article up in the next month or so that will discuss all the types of vaping devices on the market and their pros and cons etc.
Called the “iPhone of Vaporizers” by Newsweek, the Firefly 2 by Firefly is a first class vaporizer for vaping dry herbs. Its convection heating technology delivers amazing vapor volume and tremendous flavor from your plant material, and its compact size makes it a perfect choice for those with an active lifestyle.
An excellent judge of the value of a vaporizer is its warranty. In general, the longer the warranty, the better the unit. A manufacturer is more willing to put a longer warranty on a device they know has a lower rate of defects. You want to protect your investment by buying a unit with a good warranty. It’ll ensure the device is solidly built, and if anything does break, you’ll be able to replace it without having to buy a new one.
Hi Nick. Yeap we need to update the article, as there are just so many new mods right now. Hard to keep up, but I will definitely consider the two you mention, as they both seem like great mods. Appreciate your recommendations!
OK, in this post we’re going to clue you in on some of the potential issues with electronic cigarettes or e-cigs, as they’re diminutively known. But before we do, we need to get one thing straight: Smoking cigarettes kills.

In the most recent data, British health officials have found that vaping is at least 95% safer than smoking. They say it is the nicotine addicts, but smoking kills. For that reason alone, many people are making the switch. Vaping is not 100% safe but the name of the game is harm reduction.
Now, beyond just using a steam vaporizer to release steam in the room, you can also use them along with some DIY concoctions that can help calm those coughs even more. Most of these concoctions include the use of menthol or camphor essential oil which help to open the sinuses or at least make you feel like you can breathe better, but you can always go with a synergy blend of oils that’s specific to breathing better. This is the one I have, but doTERRA and Young Living also have really great options too.
While most vaporizers are designed to be specifically compatible with one material, multi-compatible units are becoming more common. These units generally have separate heating chambers for each style of material that will be vaporized. These multi-compatible vaporizers are more commonly found in the pen style version and not the larger portable or desktop vapes.
I’m glad to here they work so well for you Stefanie! We love ours too. We have one for all the bedrooms and even run them when we aren’t sick if we think we need extra moisture in the air. What brand do you use? I think we may need to find another one that works more consistently. Sometimes I have trouble getting ours to steam.
The OG Four 2.0 Lava-Quartz Coil by This Thing Rips truly does rip as its name suggests, but the vapor smoothness and flavor is a bit harsh compared to some of the other vape pens. That said, it has a unique design and is fairly portable, earning it the Best Value and Best Style/Design awards from High Times.
The discreet nature of vaporizers also sets them apart from smoking methods. Whereas smoke hangs in the air, staining white curtains and blowing your cover, these clouds dissipate in seconds and do not leave lingering odors. You can enjoy herb in public without drawing attention to your session or upsetting people as cigarettes do. Portable units are pocket-friendly and therefore stealthy, making them a better companion for vaping on-the-go.
A vaporizer is a device used to release the active ingredients of plant material or to release the therapeutic compounds. Vaporizers heat the material at a much lower temperature so that the active compounds contained in the plant material produce an aromatic vapor (instead of smoke). Rather than burning the plant material, which can produce numerous harmful by-products, this vapor contains virtually zero particulate matter and significantly reduced noxious gases. By avoiding combustion (smoke), the user is able to achieve the same desired effects.
The Blade by Geekvape is lightweight, durable and nice to look at. It utilizes dual 20700s, 21700s or 18650s with included adapter. The mod has a large bright color screen, oversized power button and a strong battery door. It’s made of aircraft grade material featuring a unique and vibrant paintjob.
Propylene Glycol is an organic compound created in laboratories and has been approved by the FDA for various purposes. It’s used in theatrical smoke machines, skin and personal care products, pharmaceutical goods and as a food additive in thousands of different products that we consume everyday. In an electronic cigarette, PG is used as an e-liquid base to produce vapor and is known for creating a strong ‘throat hit.’ The liquid is colorless, odorless and tasteless, and it’s been studied extensively for years. Research has confirmed its safety in various forms, including vapor.
Ask yourself where you will be vaporizing most of time? Will you be outside? Go with a portable unit. They are more compact, and therefore stealthier. If you’re more likely to take hits at home, and want the best quality, a desktop unit plugs-in to provide the cleanest, most flavorful clouds possible. Also make sure to choose a vaporizer that is compatible with whatever material you want to consume, whether it be dry herb, waxy oils, or liquid concentrates.
