If you’re like everybody else new to vaping you’re probably a bit confused about some of the terminology related to vaporizers. Should you get an e-cig or a cig-alike? Or maybe a vape pen would be a better fit. But which kind? Maybe what you’re really after is a vape mod, or maybe a pod kit or a… well, you get the idea. The terminology can seem pretty confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. In this brief explainer article the team here at the Smoking Buddha vape shop in Parker are going to zoom in on vape mods and pod kits and explain the difference. Let’s start with vape mods.
Scenario One: You’ve got a spanking new pod and you’re all excited to break it in. But as soon as you add your vape juice the thing springs a leak and you wind up hurling blasphemous language toward the sky. Scenario Two: You were under the impression your vape had been working just fine. But then one day after putting it down you realize…
People disagree about who first brought the bong to widespread notice and acceptance. But what no one can disagree on is that the glass bong has been a staple of American life now for more than half a century. What started in the 1960s as a symbol of rebellion has become, dare we say, mainstream (!) here in the 2020s. But as the popularity of bongs spread hither and yon, and as more and more manufacturers realized there was gold in those big, bold hits, the traditional glass bong has had to make room on the Parker headshop shelf for those fashioned from other materials.
If you want to cause the person next to you at the vape shop to lose their lunch just mention that you like drinking old bong water. You know, bong water: that fetid pool of bacteria, mold, and who knows what else that collects over the weeks and months in the chamber of a dirty bong. Bong water seems like a holdover from the medieval period. But even members of the Mughal Empire hundreds of years ago understood the need to keep their water pipes clean and so should we, being so modern and enlightened and all. So in the interest of public health, those of us at the Smoking Buddha vape shop in Parker are going to take a close look at why and how you should clean your bong on a regular basis.
So you’re in the middle of a vape session, just minding your own business without a care in the world when suddenly your disposable vape begins to blink. WTF? Why is it blinking? Is there a built-in alien detector that just picked up an extraterrestrial life form standing behind you? Is your vape telling you you’ve had enough? Is there a tornado on the way? Those of us at the Smoking Buddha headshop in Parker get asked all the time what it means when a disposable vape starts blinking so we thought we’d address the issue in this post and clear the air once and for all.
Even though vaping has been shown time and again to present almost none of the health hazards of smoking it’s still not something kids should be doing. Why? First, because it’s illegal in Colorado for minors to vape, but also because kids should be focused on being kids. Here in our vape shop in Parker, we occasionally get people under age 21 in our store trying to buy vaporizers and we promptly turn them away. But how do you know if your minor child is vaping? In this post, we’ll cover some telltale signs to look for.
