THE THREE BEST MARIJUANA VAPORIZER PENS FOR BEGINNERS

Post by: Portable Vaporizers Now

When a person first becomes interested in using portable weed vapes to consume their medicinal materials then can often become quite confused and overwhelmed at the sheer number of products and information that is out there in the industry. For this very reason we have decided to make some personal recommendation to newcomers to the vaporizer community, to allow them to narrow down their selection and find a reliable product that other customers have had some success with. The following products were hand selected by us based on hundreds of reviews. These products have been analyzed for ease of use, battery life, efficiency, and other features. They are listed in the order of how we have rated them so please keep that in mind when weighing your purchasing decisions.

1) G Pro Herbal by Grenco Science

The G Pro Herbal is our first choice as the best dry herb vaporizer pen for beginners. The reason we selected this pen is because it is extremely user friendly and affordable. Simply unlock the battery by pressing the button five times consecutively and the device will unlock, offering you three different temperature settings to choose from. To change the heat settings, hold down the power button until the light changes color. Green is the lowest heat setting, red is medium, and blue is the highest. We suggest that you experiment with the different settings until you find one that works well for your particular setup. Also you want to make sure that you pack the chamber in your G Pro all the way to the top before you try to vaporize your herbs, otherwise it may not work how it was intended to. Overall, this is a high quality vaporizer pen that produces some very consistent results, and it is also the vape pen that I use personally, so it comes highly recommended.

2) Vaporite Budy Pen Platinum 3 in 1 Pen

Our second choice for beginners is the Vaporite Platinum 3 in 1 vaporizer pen. We chose this as our second selection in the lineup because this is a multi-function pen which will allow newcomers to the vape community a chance to experiment with the different materials to figure out which ones they like best. The Vaporite Platinum has 3 different attachments that are each designed specifically for one of the following materials: dried herbs, waxes, and oils. Waxes and Oils are merely more concentrated forms of marijuana that have been boiled down and transformed into more potent versions of the already powerful plant. These extremely powerful extracts have been labelled throughout the vaping community as “dabs”, and you can find a lot of information on them throughout the web.

3) Pulsar Supernova Vaporizer Pen

Our third choice in the overall lineup of the best vape pens for beginners is the Pulsar Supernova Vaporizer Pen. We chose this pen because it is an extremely affordable option for those who simply want to test out a product before deciding on a much larger, more expensive purchase. This product is great for new users to get their feet wet in the vape community and experiment with a vaporizer to see if they like the experience. Once they have used this pen for a few months then they can take a look around the marketplace to see what else is available to find something a bit more heavy duty for their vaping needs. The Pulsar Supernova is designed specifically for dried herbal blends, and it’s essential that you grind up your material into a fine powder before inserting them into the chamber. This will ensure that you get maximum efficiency from your vaporizer and will also provide you with a much more intense medical experience. Overall this is a great pen for beginners and comes highly recommended from our staff, so please keep that in mind when you are shopping around for a suitable product.

So there you have it, our top 3 recommendations for the best vaporizer pens for beginners to get acquainted with the vaporizer industry. You can purchase all of these pens right now over at PortableVaporizersNow.com. We have successfully narrowed down your selection to provide you with the products that we have seen newcomers thrive with, so now it’s up to you to make the final decision out of the three items listed. This is kind of a fool proof plan, as you can’t really make a wrong choice here.

FOLLOWING THE GREEN RUSH

Monday , December 8th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

MOVING FOR A JOB IN THE CANNABIZ

By Lex Renner

Follow me on Twitter @roll_lex

 

FOLLOWING THE GREEN RUSH

This is my senior year of undergraduate education, and it is almost time to graduate. That means that I have to consider my real world future, and that’s terrifying. Now I have to think about what I want to do with my life. I have known for some time that I wanted to do something cannabis related, but that is hard in a state without medicinal or recreational legalization.

There is not a booming cannabis industry in Ohio for me to break into, so I have thought about moving some place where I would be able to really work in the industry. This is something I am still considering, so I have done some looking around.

In states with recent legalization, the industry is rapidly expanding and developing, and eagerly searching for go-getters to help start up all of the businesses that are establishing during the “green rush.” For someone who is looking to make it in the cannabis industry, moving to a state right after legalization passes could be a prudent business move. However, I recommend finding a job before leaving everything behind.

If you are not looking to be a part of the cannabis industry, but are just looking to indulge in the fruits of legalization, you have other issues to think about. Obviously, employment may be an issue. No matter why you are moving, it’s wise to have a job for when you get there. Another aspect to consider regarding employment is how your cannabis use could affect your job. There are still very limited protections for employment in states where cannabis is legalized, medicinal or recreational. If the job you find will fire you if you are caught or test positive, the move may not be practical.

You also must consider living arrangements. Some landlords don’t appreciate tenants toking up, and new gadgets are hitting the market to help them detect cannabis smoke in the vicinity. Making a move like this could be life-changing, but failing due to lack of research could be even more so.

Make sure you have all of your ducks in a row before you take a step like moving to a new state. Check with any future employers and landlords about their policies before agreeing to anything, and don’t let the promise of legal weed cloud your judgment. Don’t take a job that won’t pay the bills just so you can smoke. Don’t sign a lease thinking you can get away with smoking in the structure. Keep yourself protected, and enjoy the streets paved in green.

THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF DABBING

Friday , December 5th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

HOW CONCENTRATES COULD DAMAGE THE LEGALIZATION MOVEMENT

THE HIDDEN DANGERS OF DABBING

As everybody knows by now, dabbing has become a hugely popular way to vaporize cannabis concentrates. While, in and of itself, dabbing is more than likely safe enough, there lies a hidden danger. The dangers of dabbing can be found in the perceptions of the non-smokers. To an outsider, some of these smoking techniques, which involve butane torches, nails, and other devices, are too easily associated with hard drugs such as methamphetamines and crack cocaine.

Now, you may be thinking, “What about the 3-5′ bongs of old? Are those any better?” My answer would be yes and no. On one hand, there is no mistaking a 3′ glass water pipe for use with anything other than cannabis. On the other hand, these types of larger-than-life devices can definitely work against the medicinal and recreational angels we have been working towards for so long and lead people to think in terms of addiction, obsession and overdose.

 

MOVING FORWARD

As we move forward with our efforts towards the nationwide legalization of cannabis, let us each partake with both pride and style. Dabbing may well be the best method for your particular needs, but please simply be aware of how others may view you from outside the “in crowd.”

Most importantly is to remember to always be aware, observant and kind to your fellow man. Let us help the cannabis plant spread around the globe to promote health, happiness and spirituality for all of earth’s children … even the d!ckheads.

AQUAMIZER PORTABLE DAB RIG REVIEW

Wednesday , November 26th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

Product: Aquamizer Portable Dab Rig

Items Provided by: WeVape Vaporizers

 

Stoner Score: 4 out of 5 pot leaves!

ABOUT THE AQUAMIZER (FROM THE MANUFACTURER)

With all the joys of a water-filtered hit without the hassle of constantly cleaning ash, our exclusive dab rig attachment produces HUGE milky white clouds of vapor guaranteed to take YOU to The Next Level. Compatible with most vape pens (510 thread), the Aquamizer is small enough to carry to any event, yet bold enough to impress even the toughest of weed snobs. “Welcome to the future,” you will say, as they look at you with well-earned respect.

You will be the life of any party the moment you show off your Aquamizer. “Dab rig?,” you will say, “I got one right here.” They’ll love it. With a beautifully sleek blend of custom designed glass, our dab rig atomizer comes equipped with it’s own heating system perfect for vaping wax, crumble, shatter, bho or any other form of hash oil. No open flames or hot nails needed – your safety is our priority.

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE’S AQUAMIZER REVIEW

The Aquamizer Portable Dab Rig was a unique review for me. Because I’m old-school, I usually stick to smoking dry herb (aka “Flower”). However this portable rig was intriguing enough for me to check out. Because I don’t keep cannabis concentrates on hand, I made a special purchase of some Cali Gold C02 extract in order to test out this device.

Attached to my newly acquired G5 Vape Pen, I had the unit put together and ready to vape in about two minutes. The only reason it took more than 15 seconds is because it required some experimentation to find the perfect water level. I tried a few different variations and finally decided to fill the unit just above the air holes in the stem. In this way, I was able to get sufficient filtration without sucking water into my mouth.

For more specifics, please see below for the pros and cons of my recent experience.

PROS:

- Easy to use
- Impressive/smooth hits
- 510 thread for compatibility with most vape pens
- Comes as a complete kit
- Small and portable
- Sleek/stylish design

CONS:

The ONLY issue I had with the Aquamizer was with the black lettering on the unit. By the time I was done with my testing, about 1/4 of the “Aqmzr” text had been rubbed off. To fix the problem, I intend to rub of the remaining text. In the future, I recommend that the text be etched into the glass; this would be both more stylish and permanent.

 

REVIEW WRAP UP

As you may well know, I receive review products on a frequent basis. Most of these products get reviewed and then given away to friends. However, the Aquamizer just may find its way into my stash drawer.

 

BUD SAYS: With a price range $49.99-$79.00, the Aquamizer is a great product for those with  “highly” advanced smoking/vaporizing needs.

Toke to ya soon,

Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

TOMMY CHONG’S SMOKE SWIPE

Thursday , November 20th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

 

WORLDWIDE LEGEND TOMMY CHONG & REVIVER PARTNER TO LAUNCH

TOMMY CHONG’S SMOKE SWIPE

 

Legendary Cannabis Activist Launches Product to

Swipe Away Cannabis, Cigarette and Cigar Odor From Clothing

 

Los Angeles, CA, November 19, 2014 — Following a successful stint on “Dancing with the Stars”, legendary cannabis activist, pop culture icon, and Grammy award-winning comedian, Tommy Chong, reveals he is back to his roots as a pioneer in the cannabis industry with the announcement of the launch of Tommy Chong’s Smoke Swipe, the breakthrough product designed to swipe away the smell of cannabis and tobacco odor on clothing.

Chong teamed up with Reviver Clothing Swipes to develop a product that keeps usage discreet, a need that is more relevant than ever with the growing legalization of both recreational and medicinal marijuana.

“While our culture is rapidly accepting cannabis consumption as a way of life, it’s fair to acknowledge that smelling like cannabis in many public settings may not be cool,” admits Chong.  “I could have used my Tommy Chong’s Smoke Swipe 10 years ago to save me from a lot of headache,” he jokes.  “Now, those who partake in it can keep it to themselves.”

 

“We are honored to collaborate with the legendary Tommy Chong,” says Ben Kusin, CEO and Founder of Reviver.  “With his input, we were able to develop the ideal product that’s long overdue for cannabis consumers.”

The Swipes are portable, reusable, and highly effective for those wanting to keep cannabis usage a private occasion.  The customer simply places a swipe on their fingers, rubs the applicator across clothing to neutralize odors, and replaces it into its re-sealable package.  No more awkward stares.  No more worries.

Tommy Chong’s Smoke Swipe is available for $10.99 per 3-pack at www.chongswipes.com and will be landing in head shops and dispensaries nationwide in the coming months.

About Reviver Clothing Swipes: Launched in 2014 after Founder and CEO Ben Kusin realized there was a niche in the market for a hassle-free solution to keeping clothes and hair smelling fresh on the go, Reviver Clothing Swipes have quickly become a hit with smokers and non-smokers alike. Reviver comes in several variations including the Reviver Clothing Swipe, Spark with Pheromones for Him and Her, and the Reviver Pets line. For more information on Reviver, please visit www.reviver.com.

About Tommy Chong:  Iconic actor, best-selling author, and Grammy Award-winning comedian Tommy Chong is perhaps best known as one-half of the legendary cannabis-fueled comedy duo Cheech & Chong which minted six gold records and released eight films during their reign, for which Chong also co-wrote and directed.  Chong went on to star in several films and television shows, including his regular character, “Leo” on the popular series, “That 70s Show.”

After a nine-month prison sentence in 2004 for shipping bongs to Pennsylvania, the comic became a passionate advocate for cannabis freedom and fairness.  In 2012 Chong announced he was battling prostate cancer and decided to combat his illness with a controversial cannabis oil protocol.  On July 5, 2012, he revealed that the cannabis treatment had been effective and he is now cancer free.  He continues to be an outspoken advocate for cannabis, which he credits for supporting his healthy and active lifestyle.

G5 VAPORIZER REVIEW

Wednesday , November 19th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

Product: G5 Vaporizer Review

Items Provided by: KingVapes.com

 

Stoner Score: 5 out of 5 pot leaves!

 

ABOUT THE G5 VAPORIZER PEN (FROM THE MANUFACTURER)

Boasting the title of “Best Vape Pen” available on the marketplace today, the sleek Ago G5 Vaporizer heats up to provide a hearty plume of vapor in just 5 seconds. Easily concealable at roughly the thickness of a common Sharpie, this vape pen will provide countless discrete puffs in even the most public of surroundings. Not one to limit itself to dry herbs alone, this extremely versatile pen is one of few with the ability to take a steady diet of dry herbs, oils, and waxes when utilizing the advanced 3-in-1 sets (not shown).

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE’S G5 VAPORIZER REVIEW

Currently available for $29.99, the G5 Vaporizer is a phenomenal buy! I’ve only had the opportunity to use it once so far, but here is what I was able to ascertain right off the bat.

PROS:

- Simple to use
- 510 thread for easy compatibility
- 1-year warranty
- Comes as a complete kit
- Small and portable
- Battery life indicator
- Sleek/stylish design

CONS:

To produce more vapor and reduce the combustion possible with dry herbal materials, you may need to buy a glass honeycomb screen (sold separately). I’m old school though, so a little smoke never bothered me.

 

BUD SAYS: For $29.99, the G5 Vaporizer Pen Kit is a great product and I “highly” recommend it.

NEW YORK MARIJUANA LEGISLATION

Monday , November 17th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

NEW YORK’S NEW MARIJUANA POLICY

 

By Lex Renner

Follow me on Twitter @roll_lex

 

NEW YORK MARIJUANA LEGISLATION

There’s been a lot of press over the past few weeks about New York City’s new policy to ticket for possession of small amounts of cannabis. This definitely seems like a step in the right direction for the city, but I think it has gotten more press than it deserves. Many states have already implemented decriminalization, and have had these policies in place for numerous years.

I was reading articles about New York’s new policy, hoping I was reading an article about a major breakthrough in the legalization fight. As I continued through article after article, however, I had a strange sense of Deja vu.

The process of getting a ticket for possession of small amounts of cannabis, similar to a traffic ticket, seemed like one I had gone through before. In fact, this is the same process that I got to experience when I got my possession citation last year. In Ohio, possession of anything under a 100 grams is punishable by a fine and is classified as a misdemeanor. It is treated much the same as an underage drinking violation, and is socially regarded on mostly the same level as well.

I was pulled over for having a headlight out, and the cop proceeded to search my car based on the probable cause that it smelled super dank. I willingly gave them what I had in an attempt to decreasing the chance they would tear the whole thing apart, as it was very cold and I had to stand outside. After they were done searching, which was quick and painless, they wrote me what amounted to a speeding or parking ticket.

All I got was a small piece of paper telling me I had to pay my fine by a certain date or a bench warrant for my arrest would be issued. Afterwards, I went, I paid my fine, and after a year has passed, I can even petition to have the misdemeanor taken off my record. So, I wasn’t exactly blown away by these new policies in New York City. In fact, I was more surprised about the fact that it took the city this long just to decriminalize. I agree that it’s a step in the right direction, but a slow one.

Recently, the Cannabis movement has made great strides in medical and recreational legalization. These new policies in New York City may be a turning point in the movement if it seen in the right light. If people think “well even New York has come around”, instead of “wow it took them this long”, then it will be beneficial.

CANNABIS DISCRIMINATION

Thursday , November 13th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

DISCRIMINATION WITHIN THE COMMUNITY

CANNABIS DISCRIMINATION?

Do you ever find yourself showing up to the smoke circle with your best joint only to be embarrassingly informed that this group smokes bowls? While for the most part stoners like all forms of weed, some people may be pickier about how they toke up than others. This can be an awkward situation to find yourself in. I know that I like to assume I’m a fun person and every stoner will want to be my friend. This is not always the reality, and everyone will face this issue eventually.

If you find yourself discriminated against in the community for any reason, realize it’s probably not your fault. Clichés are bound to form in any community, whether it be the bowl smokers or the only Friday nights smokers. As sad as it is to think, people are discriminated against every day by other people within the community. These divisions can be expected in any large community that spans other diversity categories. One of the most amazing things about the cannabis community is the amount of differences that can be found in these people that come together to smoke.

These differences can at times tear us apart, and this is not a unique situation to the cannabis community. Some look towards the progress of same-sex legalization to see where cannabis legalization should go next, but there are other points from the LGBT community that we should look at as well. There is division and discrimination from between the labels and certain subgroups in the LGBT community, but it has not torn them apart. They have learned that, no matter what their differences, they are part of the same community working towards common goals.

This division is harmful to any community, but especially to the Cannabis Community. We are currently fighting for our rights, and division within the community can only harm this movement. While I know it’s not feasible for every stoner to band together or even get along, having the idea in the back of your mind might change the way you approach new people within the community.

If you find yourself in a situation where you are meeting new people, always keep an open mind, no matter where they come from or whether they smoke. If you meet some new people that do smoke, use common interests to gain ground and establish a relationship. If you find that you may not be suited to be best friends, at least attempt to maintain a professional demeanor. While I’m not saying you have to get along with everyone, you should at least try to remain civil for all occasions. You never know what contacts you may need in the future. We can’t fix everything overnight, but as long as a couple of people read this and have it in mind, we will be stronger.

CLICK-N-HIT PRODUCT REVIEW

Monday , November 10th, 2014 | Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

Products: Click-N-Hit

Items Provided by: Click-N-Hit.com

 

Stoner Score: 4 out of 5 pot leaves!

 

ABOUT THE CLICK-N-HIT (FROM THE MANUFACTURER)

Click-N-Hit is a portable “vaporizer style” smoking pipe device with a compact 4 stage design, complete with a built-in wind proof butane-refillable torch lighter. This is not your traditional vaporizer since it uses a direct flame to ignite the smoking substance. The Click-N-Hit pipe is all you need! Featured here is the first huge innovation in decades that will change the way you smoke…. Forever. Just load it up with your favorite legal herb or pipe tobacco then Click-N-Hit. This is the reinvention of the traditional “One-hitter”, “Dugout” devices. Smoke any time with the click of a button. No more carrying around grinders and tins, you can leave your pipe, rolling papers and even your lighter at home. Easy one-handed operation for multitasking and smoking on the go.

 

SMOKING WITH STYLE’S CLICK-N-HIT REVIEW

The Click-N-Hit is basically a pipe and lighter combo. This device is not to be confused with a vaporizer since it ignites the marijuana as opposed to vaporizing it. All-in-all, the Click-N-Hit is a good product. To give you an idea of why we gave a favorable “Four Marijuana Leaf” rating, we’ve included the short list of pros and cons:

PROS:

- Easy to use pipe and lighter (all-in-one) device.
- A better alternative for those who like to “smoke” as opposed to “vape.”
- Portable = “Stashable.”
- Torch flame can be manually adjusted.
- You can use the torch-style lighter by itself for other purposes as needed.
- Wind-resistant flame.

CONS:

- Does not (cannot) come with butane so you’ll need to fill it yourself.
- Metal parts around the torch flame can get very hot (careful when putting back into your pocket).

 

 BUD SAYS: For $19.95, the Click-N-Hit is a great option if you are looking for a portable pipe/lighter/stash combo.

OHIO CANNABIS LEGALIZATION

| Posted By: Bud S. Moker, Th.C.

OHIO CANNABIS LEGALIZATION EFFORTS

Marijuana legalization efforts in Ohio.

With all of the press over the recent elections, legalization is looking pretty good right now. Oregon and Alaska became the third and fourth states to legalize recreational use of cannabis. Advocates on all levels have been busy at work planning the campaigns that made these elections possible. Of course, a lot of the success can be attributed to a general changing of attitudes across the United States. Even though the initiative in Florida for medical marijuana didn’t get the 60% it needed to pass, it still had over 50% of the vote.

Now that we are seeing legalization spread through new states, what’s next? Probably not Ohio. Along with Oregon, Alaska, and Florida voters, some Ohio voters were expecting to see a cannabis issue on their ballots as well. This initiative would have added an amendment to the Ohio constitution, giving medical marijuana cardholders similar protections as those afforded in other states. The initiative was not able to gather enough signatures in time to make it on the ballot.

I saw signature collectors for this initiative at three different events, but they were all similar events. These tactics may not have been effective enough, as they would have seen a lot of the same people at these events. Also, I hate to admit it, but I am not registered to vote yet, as are a lot of 18-22 year olds. This is a large portion of the cannabis community that would be a vital resource to tap into if legalization is going to take place in Ohio.

This was a setback for legalization in Ohio. Since Colorado and Washington broke the rules and legalized first, it’s the trendy thing to do. Initiatives put to the vote in the next six years will have an easier time passing than those that take their time. Right now, the shift of power is in our favor. A lot of social change is happening, and cannabis is a part of that. Advocates need to capitalize on the momentum, and take these campaigns forward.

States that do not see individual legalization in the next six years are unlikely to legalize before the federal government. Our entire nation is moving in this direction, and it has become a national issue. While it may be too early to speculate on the next presidential election, the current administration has made softer comments on cannabis than previous administrations. After all, we inhale, that is the point. By the time all states are ready to legalize at an individual level, it will have become a non-issue; it will already be legal. It would be a victory for Ohio if they can legalize before the federal government.

Naturally, everyone working towards legalization would be happy to see it occur, no matter what the circumstances. Any victory is worth celebrating, and Oregon and Alaska have shown us that in this past election. Even if Ohio does not jump on the bandwagon and legalize soon, it is bound to succumb in the end, with every other state. I would be happy to see legalization on the national level, but I would be especially prideful to see my home state of Ohio reach that conclusion on their own.

We have always been a swing state, but here we have fallen just a little too conservative. If Ohio can legalize before the federal government, it will be easier to accept. If we legalize, it is our decision, and it not being imposed upon us. Once the federal government legalizes, they will face backlash in even more conservative states because of the bad feelings that arise when the government tells people what to do.
