What is an e-liquid, and what is it made of?

E-liquid, also known as vape juice, e-juice, or vape liquid, is the liquid inside of an e-cigarette or tank. It contains all the nicotine and flavoring that gives each juice its unique profile. Every e-liquid is made up of four primary ingredients:

  • Propylene Glycol - A food-safe, FDA-approved nicotine carrier and thinning agent
  • Vegetable Glycerin - A food-safe, FDA-approved liquid base. A natural extract from vegetable oil
  • Nicotine - Most e-liquids contain tobacco-free synthetic nicotine, but a few still use natural tobacco extracts
  • Flavoring - Food-grade, FDA-approved flavorings that make the cloud juice taste good

What are mods?

A mod is the main device in a vape system and is often much bigger, more powerful, and customizable than vape pens. Some are regulated mods that control electricity in your vape system and allow you to choose the amount of power while also offering short circuit protection. Mechanical mods will enable you to pull 100% of your vape system’s power every time you use it.

What are coils?

The coil is the part of your vape system that creates the vapor. Coils are typically made of three parts:

  • Cotton - Where the liquid is absorbed
  • Wire - Can be a standard wire spool or wire mesh, depending on your preference
  • Attachment - The part of the coil that attaches to the base of the tank

What are disposables?

Disposable vapes are one of the largest and fastest-growing markets in vaping. While there are pros and cons to using disposables over other vape systems, they offer more convenience and a variety of options since you don't have to commit to a whole bottle of liquid when trying a new flavor.
 
However, disposables are more wasteful than other vape systems and can become an expensive habit. Think of it as booking a ride share every time you need to travel versus buying your own car. It might feel cheaper and more convenient to book the ride, but the cost will add up to a staggering amount fairly quickly. On the other hand, purchasing a car will cost a bit more upfront, but you only have to pay for maintenance and gas. In the long run, buying a car is less expensive than booking a ride share everywhere you go.

What is hemp, and how does it differ from cannabis or marijuana?

Hemp is the natural wild plant that marijuana comes from. Most health benefits are found in hemp-derived cannabinoids like CBD, CBN, and CBG. Hemp also contains low amounts of Delta 8 THC and Delta 10 THC, which is why Delta 8 products are legal.
 
Marijuana is the cousin species of hemp, extremely similar in appearance, smell, and overall contained chemicals. However, marijuana generally has much higher THC levels than hemp, with lower levels of CBD and CBN. Additionally, the THC found in marijuana is primarily Delta 9 THC, or what most people just know as regular THC. It is more psychoactive than Delta 8 THC, but it is also more likely to bring negative side effects.

What are Delta 9, Delta 8, and Delta 10 THC?

Delta 9 THC is what most people would call “regular” THC. It is the most commonly found form of THC in marijuana and the most popular psychoactive cannabinoid. Delta 9 THC is considered a Schedule 1 drug by the FDA and is federally illegal. The state of Florida has medical marijuana, which makes Delta 9 THC legal by state standards, but only if you have a medical prescription and registered medical marijuana card.
 
Delta 8 THC is a less common form of THC primarily found in low quantities in hemp. It is most commonly harvested in two ways: either it is extracted from hemp oil during the process of isolating CBD and other cannabinoids, or CBD is harvested and then put through one of three chemical processes to oxidate it, turning it into Delta 8 THC. When done correctly, these processes are perfectly safe and should leave no leftover chemical agents, and safety testing is a requirement before we even consider any company’s products.
 
Delta 10 THC is another of the lesser cannabinoids, with a different high than Delta 8 and Delta 9 highs. It is also gathered using similar methods to Delta 8 THC. The Delta 10 high is less psychoactive and more body-focused. Found in lower quantities than Delta 8 naturally, Delta 10 products tend to cost a bit more than their Delta 8 counterparts.

What are moonrocks and asteroids?

Moonrocks and asteroids are hemp flower products that are “doped” to add additional THC content, with different doping methods used for each.
 
Moonrocks are made by taking a nug of flower, dipping it in THC oil, and then rolling it in keef, or cannabis pollen. Keef is very high in CBD, CBD-A, THC, and THC-A content, leading to a very potent combo when mixed with THC oil.
 
Asteroids follow a similar procedure, starting as a nug of flower dipped into THC oil. However, asteroids replace the keef dusted over the outside with crystallized THC and CBD isolates.
 
Moonrocks and asteroids can give a very unique, potent high, but there are some things to consider. Due to the additional oils and particulate matter, they tend to require combustion at a higher temperature to get a complete burn. Our personal opinion is that they should generally be smoked out of something with water or proper filtration. The keef and isolate crystals get sucked down through the rest of the flower as they burn, and without some kind of filtration or water to catch it, you end up with your mouth and throat covered in unpleasant bits of ash and residue.

What’s the difference between wraps, cones, and papers?

Papers are little booklets of paper used for rolling tobacco, hemp products, etc. If you’re using tips, you would put one tip at the end of your paper, place your chosen product in the crease, then lick the edge to seal it like an envelope.
 
Cones are pre-assembled papers and tips. All you have to do is fill them with your chosen product, and you’re ready to go!
 
Hemp wraps are natural hemp leaves that you use for rolling. A wrap can be a cone, but normal cones can’t be considered a wrap because they’re not made from natural leaves.

What is a hookah, and what are its components?

A hookah is a water pipe used for smoking shisha tobacco. Some hookah setups can accommodate multiple people, and others are meant for one person. But every hookah shares the same basic parts:
 
Hose handle: This is the mouthpiece of the hose where you draw in the vapor.
 
Diffuser: The diffuser breaks up bubbles to create a quieter smoking experience.
 
Base: The base of the hookah holds the water.
 
Downstem: This part of the stem is submerged in water found in the hookah’s base.
 
Stem heart: This bulky section of the stem includes the hose port and release valve and connects to the base.
 
Release Valve or Purge Valve: This part of the stem attaches to the bowl above it.
 
Hose: The long, flexible body that travels from the hose port of the hookah to the hose handle and mouthpiece you smoke from.
 
Hose Connector: The hose connector connects to the hose port where you draw out the vapor from the hookah.
 
Stem: This component connects the base, bowl, and hose.
 
Coal Tray: The coal tray holds all the lit coals for the hookah and catches fallen ash so it doesn’t land on other components or your lap!
 
Bowl: The bowl is the top part of the hookah holding shisha tobacco.
 
Bowl Stem: This part of the stem is attached to the bowl.
