The Newest and Most Portable Vaporizer
Header

People have been questioning the viability of the vaporizer industry.  I recently received a letter from one of the editors over at the LA Weekly telling me that it was time to get out of the vaporizer niche and move on greener pastures.  I was shocked, what the writer failed to realize is that marijuana is only getting more and more popular.  As more states begin to pass legislation that allows patients access to their marijuana vaporizers will continue to be a large part of the medical community.  I received another letter a few days later arguing the other side:

Vaporizer are not going anywhere anytime soon.  They have proven to be very beneficial for people looking for an alternative to smoking.  I recently convinced a few of my friends to make the switch to vaping and they have thanks multiple times for it.  Me and business associates believe that vaporizers have only begun to gain widespread acceptance and that in the coming years sales of vaporizers will quadruple.  Not only is vaping marijuana healthier but it is also a whole lot of fun.  I recently purchased an Herbalizer vaporizer and could not believe how fast vaporizer technology is already developing.  Long gone are the days of low quality, poorly functioning vapes.

2014 is the year of the vaporizer and the Herbalizer shows why.  It is capable of heating up faster than a Porsche can do 0-60.  The heating element is powerful enough to illuminate and entire room (not that it does).  The balloon bags can satisfy hoards eager patients needing to get access to their medicine.  If you don’t like the balloon bag system you can switch to the whip system and draw directly from the hose.  This is a great way to vaporize if you are by yourself or just a couple other people.  You can relax sit back and vape at your own leisure, this is part of the reason why I think vaporizers are becoming more popular.  – Joey Logano

After getting back in touch with the write from the LA Weekly and trying to explain things more reasonably she seemed to come around but would completely admit that she was wrong.  I think it is funny that people are still doubting the lasting power of the vaporizer.  5 years ago no one even knew what a vaporizer was, now you have rapper like Snoop Dogg creating their own line of vapes.

What is a portable herbal vape?

July 22nd, 2014 | Posted by admin in Questions - (0 Comments)

Recently we have been flooded with email from people asking “What is a portable herbal vape?”, now that vaporizers are becoming more popular more people are starting to ask questions. There are some many different types of vaporizers that it can get confusing, especially when they all serve different purposes. A vaporizer like the Vaporite Ruby is designed for use cannabis concentrates also known as wax. A vaporizer like the Silver Surfer was designed for use with dry herbs that have been put through a grinder. Other vaporizers like the Pinnacle Pro or Ascent are capable of doing both. But if you break down the vaporizers I just listed you will notice something else, the Vaporite Ruby is a pen vaporizer, the Silver Surfer is a desktop vaporizer and the Ascent and Pinnacle Pro are portable vaporizers. So not only do they vape different materials but they are also in different classes.

Today we are going to focus just on portable herbal vaporizers. These type of vapes have grown in popularity at a tremendous pace thanks to the new laws that are allowing people to medicate more freely. Not only is the legalization of marijuana leading to an increase in vaporization but the health benefits associated with vaping are really starting to peak peoples interest.  Vaporizers like the VapirRise are great for people that medicate in the privacy of their home but some patients need the ability to vaporize outside of the house and portable herbal vapes have helped fill that void for millions of people.  Here are some of the most popular portable herbal vaporizers.

  • Ascent Vaporizer
  • Arizer Solo Vaporizer
  • Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer
  • Magic Flight Launch Box
  • PUFFiT X
  • Indica Vaporizer
  • Iolite Wispr (Butane vaporizer)
  • VaporBlunt 2.0
  • Elevape Smart Vaporizer
  • Palm Vaporizer
  • Vapir NO2
  • DaVinci Vaporizer
  • Palm Vaporizer

Places to vaporize marijuana

July 3rd, 2014 | Posted by admin in Holiday - (0 Comments)

There are lots of great places to vape your weed but some are definitely more fun than others. Today we are going to look at some of our favorite places get our vape on.

My go to spot that I vape at least once every week is the beach, it is one of the most relaxing and beautiful places to sit down and rejuvenate. I even go to the beach on rainy days because usually it is pretty empty and I get the whole place to myself. Listening to seagulls squawk and watching the fish jump up and down is an amazing way to spend a Sunday and get ready for the next week. Just be careful not to drop your vaporizer in the water and lose it, I have almost done that a few times. You also need to clean your vape thoroughly after because it is easy to get sand in the crevices and that can spell trouble if it is not addressed immediately.

An unusual place to vape that is a ton of fun is the Go-Kart track.  Just make sure there are no kids around make sure to drive responsibly.  Getting a few friends together and racing around the track is fun experience you will never forget.  You can also keep track of lap times if you are at a nicer track and bet your weed on who will get the best time.  Usually they have a smoking section you can vape in and they usually have a food court too so you can grab a hot dog in between races.  The Palm vaporizer is perfect for the track because you can just pop it back in your pocket and jump in the Go-Kart without having to worry about losing it or leaving it on the table and have it get stolen.

The bowling alley is another wonderful place to vape and have fun.  If you are having a slow week and want to mix things up just grind up some weed, charge your Palm and hit lanes.  I recommend trying a few different sizes of balls, some people like the smaller lighter balls but I usually prefer the larger heftier balls especially after I have been vaping.  A lot of bowling alleys have smoking sections but if they don’t you can just pop outside really fast to take some puffs from your Palm portable weed vaporizer.  As always it is important to remember to properly grind your weed before vaping.  It makes a huge difference and really enhance your vaporizer experience.

 

5 Vapes Similar to the Palm

June 25th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Comparison - (0 Comments)

There are few different vaporizers that come close to the Palm in terms of portability and today we are going to talk about 5 of them.

Puffit X:  This is great portable weed vaporizer that is small and compact just like the Palm.  It is modeled after an inhaler which makes it great for vaping out in public spaces.  The new Puffit X also features an internal fan that makes it even easier to take huge rips, it also helps to vaporize the weed more evenly.  If you are big on portability and vaping discreetly than this is a great alternative to the Palm vaporizer.

MFLB:  Almost everyone by now has heard something about the Magic Flight Launch Box.  It is a trusty little wooden vaporizer that is very similar to the Palm in terms of operation.  You can get the MFLB in a variety of different colors and it also comes with one the best warranties out there.  Another great thing about the MFLB is that they offer a ton of different attachments like a water pipe or power adapter plug-in.

Indica:  One of the newer vaporizers to hit market and challenge the Palm vaporizer is the Indica.  Similar to the Puffit it is very discreet and was modeled to look like a Zippo lighter.  It has an extremely fast heat-up and delivers high quality vapor.  Although it is much more expensive than the Palm everyone that I have talked to seems to like it.  Another great thing about the Indica is that when it is just laying around no one will know that it is a weed vape because it just looks like a large lighter.

Elevape:  This is one of the coolest new vaporizer to come out in a long time.  It is by far the most expensive vaporizer out if the group but you get what you pay for.  It is automatically activated when you begin to draw and boasts a micro-processor that regulates the the air flow.  The high quality will last for years the warranty they offer will cover the Elevape for life.  If you are looking for a great vaporizer that was built here in the USA the Elevape is the vaporizer for you.  Just make sure you can afford it so you dont break the bank or experience the stick shock reported by other people that have reviewed it.

VaporBlunt:  A great reliable vaporizer that has been around the block a few times is the VaporBlunt.  They just released the new 2.0 model so if you are shopping around make sure you are getting the latest model.  It comes with a cleaning brush, oil chamber, glass mouthpiece, cleaning tool, bamboo stick, flavored mouthpiece, replacement mouthpiece, vaporizer charger, instruction manual and a stand to storage when you are not vaping.  I really like this vaporizer but still the Palm is better so if you are looking at both an on the fence I would recommend staying with the Palm.

What Makes a Great Portable Vape?

When you’re shopping for a portable vape, there are a couple of items to keep in mind: do you want a powerful vaporizer for use in the car or something you can take with you on your person? Lots of people enjoy portable vapes because of their simplicity. You don’t need to plug a big device into a wall and you don’t need to go to the hassle of waiting for a heating block to get to temperature. This is a multi-step process that can be a bit tiresome. Portable vaporizers alleviate these concerns by condensing the ceramic heating apparatus into a tiny area inside the housing chamber, typically made out of plastic on the leading models such as the Pax and the Palm Vaporizers.

Palm Vaporizers are available in 9 stylish colors

What makes the Palm the right choice?

The Palm vaporizer fits all of the main concerns for people looking to take an herbal vaporizer with them on the road or to a large public event such as a rock concert. We’re big music fans and we’ve found that a small personal vaporizer is an absolute necessity for any good voyage into the hordes on the dance floor. You’ll see some chick fumbling with a jar of loose herbs and rolling papers and you can rest easy knowing that you’ve pre-ground your herbs and packed them neatly into your portable vape. With the Palm, all you need to do is place 3-4 pinches into the mesh screen, close it and insert your pre-charged battery into the housing unit to start a current that will heat  your herbs without burning them, air diffusing neatly through the screen and the active ingredients will disperse as you inhale.

Instant Vapor

This whole process is virtually instantaneous. As opposed to other bulkier portable vapes such as the Arizer Solo, that runs off of large internal batteries and takes about 2 minutes to reach temperature, the Palm will be ready to hit immediately so you can get your vapor fix and get back to whatever you’re doing. In a concert or traffic situation, this is ideal as you can cup the vape as you draw, maybe pass it discreetly to a friend, and no one will be the wiser.

If you’re looking to buy a portable vape,  the Palm is one of the best portable vaporizers available. We recommend you buy from this trusted store where we got ours.

Hey guys, we hope you’ve enjoyed our recent posts about the best ways to integrate television, beers and television into your vaporizing regimen. It’s really cool that vaporizers are taking off and we appreciate all the feedback we’ve gotten on our information. Today we’d like to go back to the basics for why we started this blog in the first place: to talk about the benefits of using the Palm Vaporizer, and answering questions about the best ways to use the Palm. In this article I’m going to go over some of the finer points of the Palm for the edification and enjoyment of our newer readers.

The Palm Vaporizer and its younger brother, the Palm 2.0 Vaporizer, both function quickly and efficiently with dry herbs. They are handheld, portable vaporizers that are ideal for vaping marijuana or any other dry aromatherapy material. Each Palm Vaporizer comes with a removable screen, which makes cleaning your vape as easy as can be. All you have to do to get started with your Palm is to grind up your weed, tobacco, or whatever plant you plan on vaporizing. Grinders are absolutely essential to thorough vaporization, especially with the Palm. A lot of the questions I get is “Why am I not getting big clouds of vapor?” and most frequently the answer to this question is “Make sure you are grinding up your leaves, nuggets, or blends thoroughly with a sharp, metallic grinder.” If you’re simply loading the flowers into the chamber, you’re not getting an efficient convection current for your blends because the airflow is only moving around the material, not through it. When you grind up the leaves finely, you can get more of the active ingredients to diffuse into a vapor.

herbal grinder

This is how you should grind your leaves for the Palm Vaporizer.

Whether you’re using the Original Palm or the Palm 2.0 Vaporizer, the best part about VaporBlunt vaporizers is how efficient they are when the material is ground up correctly. These personal vaporizers are discreet, compact and unlike many of the popular “pen style vaporizers” out there, the Palm will never burn your herbs because of the fine mesh screen that separates the heating element from the material itself. Equally as important as shredding up your blends to a fine powder, is the practice of cleaning your mouthpiece and screen regularly. You see after heavy use, the screen may get a little corroded with herbal residue. VaporBlunt makes it easy to clean and maintain your Palm by simply removing the screen using a tweezer or standard vape tool. You can clean out the residue by running hot water over it or soak the screen in a 90% isopropyl alcohol solution and let it dry completely before placing it back into the vaporizer unit.

Cinco de Vapo

Cinco de Mayo Vaping

Cinco de Mayo Vaping

In memory of the Battle of Puebla we will list five fun things to do while vaping on Cinco de Mayo.  Please remember to play by rules and stay safe.

Pin the tail on the donkey!  This fun childrens game is fun for adults too.  You can tweak the rules a little by adding penalties and rewards for successful or unsuccessful pins.  Things like “take a puff” or “take a shot” can really liven things up.  You can also do “pick a vapor” and make someone take a hit from the Palm vaporizer every time they are successfully pinned.

Vaped Pinata!  This is another really fun game re-purposed for adults.  Before you put on the blindfold and spin around make sure to fire up the Palm and take a few hits from the vaporizer.  This will really add to the challenge and make things much more difficult.  You can also fill the pinata with shots, joints, blunts, weed, candy and condoms to making for a real scramble when the pinata is finally busted open.  Just make sure to stand back when the vaped parties are attempting to crack open pinata.

Chilli Pepper Guessing Game.  This is one of my favorites but make sure you are a fan of spicy foods before you start.  Get a bunch of different peppers from the market and create your own different salsas using one pepper per.  Then people will take turns dipping chips in the salsa and trying to guess which pepper you used in each of the different dips.  If you guess correctly you get to take a hit from the Palm vaporizer.  If you don’t guess correctly you have to load the Palm vaporizer for the next person that does guess correctly.  It is a great tasting game that anyone can play.

Peso Toss.  This game requires going and exchanging some US dollars for Mexican pesos.  You will also need to pick up five different sombreros.  You line the sombreros at different distances and turn them upside down.  Every time you correctly toss a peso into the hat you pick another player and make them take a hit from the Palm Vaporizer.  You can also with Tequila but since most of my friends (including myself) are not big drinking we play with weed instead.  Just make sure you bring your grinder because you will going through a lot of weed.

Mexican Dance Off.  This one is for the end of the night after everyone has had a few cervezas.  Form a dance line and pump the mariachi music, take turns doing your best Mexicans and clapping for who you think has the best dance.  At the end of the dance line have the Palm vaporizer set up and loaded with marijuana.  The person that gets the loudest applause will be rewarded with the vaporizer.  It is then their turn to crown the next winner and pass the vaporizer and the sombrero to the new winner.  This game can last for hours so be prepared and bring your dancing shoes.

If you have your favorite games to play on Cinco de Mayo please leave them in the comments below so I can add them to the list.

I have to admit that I was pretty excited when I got tasked with listing my 7 favorite beers of 2014.  I am huge fan of vaping and the only other hobby of mine that really comes close is beer tasting.  Overall I prefer a lighter pilsner style of brew but over the past decade I have started to get into porters and micro brews as well.  I will try and stay unbiased and give all the beers on the list a fair ranking.

#7:  Imperial Russian Stout by Stone Brewery.  This is a great for almost any time of year but I especially enjoy it on a cold winter morning.  It is rich, thick and pours a dark black.  I noticed a an aroma of coffee and black currants, I think I picked up on some anise but cannot say certainty that it was part of the brew.

#6:  Hair of the Doge Fred brewed by Wood.  This is tasty barely wine coming out of Portland, Oregon.  PDX has long been referred to as Seattle’s little brother and while they don’t have a football or baseball team they do lay hold the NW’s only basketball franchise.  Hair of the Dog is aged for six months in American oak barrels.  I picked up some notes of wood and tobacco, it is a great tasting beer.

#5:  Supplication by Russian River.  This potent brew is actually aged in Pinot Noir barrels to give it a little bit of a sour flavor.  I really enjoy this beer in the summer time on hot day sitting outside.  Supplication is light and refreshing is will real brighten up your mouth after taking a few hits from the vaporizer.  I find that it pairs well with a grilled sausage and some OG Kush.

#4:  Dragonstooth from Eleysian.  Not only is this a great beer but it is also a fantastic restaurant.  Located on Capitol Hill in Seattle you can stop in sample some beers and eat some grub.  Now that marijuana is legal in Seattle it is also a fantastic place to vape, and while they might not have a sign on the door that says “Marijuana Aloud” I can guarantee you that staff will not give you any dirty looks.

#3:  Lone Star Beer.  It is not called the National Beer of Texas without good reason.  This old school beer that was first bottled in the 1890′s is crisp and light.  It pairs nicely with some BBQ brisket and sativa, last time I enjoyed the cold beverage I was vaping some Durban Poison and could not have been happier.  Jack Herer would also be an acceptable match, pungent flavor really goes well with the lightness of the beer.

#2  Namaste by Dogfish Head.  They refer to it as a “witbier” that burst with good karma.  I would just call it a damn good beer.  It is a Belgian style white beer and is very refreshing.  This is another beer I would recommend for the hot summer months and it is also works exceptionally well at curing cotton-mouth.  The brew pairs nicely with some White Widow or Purple Diesel.  The combination of the vaped marijuana and beer will have you buzzing nicely in no time at all.

#1 Rainier Beer.  Rainier Brewing Company started in 1878 and is hands down the greatest beer of all time.  Although they are no longer locally owned and operate out of Northern California the recipe is unchanged and the flavor remains unblemished.  This award winning beer has kept people feeling great for years and will continue to for a long time.  If you need a cool refreshing beer that is light and bursting with flavor this is a beer you can’t go wrong with.

Does Vaping Weed Smell?

April 8th, 2014 | Posted by admin in Questions - (0 Comments)
Smoke Versus Vapor

Smoke Versus Vapor

Lots of people are always asking me if vaping weed smells.  There are few different answers to that question but the short answer is yes, although the smell is significantly less than smoke.  Smoking weed produces a much stronger aroma than vaping, vaping smells a bit more like burnt popcorn.  Vapor also dissipates much faster than smoke.  Smoke lingers and hangs around long after you are finished roasting a doobie or taking bong hits.  Vapor on the hand is much thinner and disperses into the air rather quickly.  Vaping outdoors leaves almost zero smell after about 10-20 seconds, on top of that the smell won’t travel more than a few feet.  I have seen people standing 5-10 feet away (non-smokers) and have no idea I am vaping weed right next to them.  But a more telling experience would have to be my sitting next to my friends and vaping weed and then not noticing or asking for a hit.  You know how your friends can turn into bloodhounds and smell your stash from another room?  Well those same friends might not have any idea you are getting stoned right next to them when hitting the vaporizer.  That’s what I love about the Palm so much, I can vape inconspicuously in public places with no one being the wiser.

If you are vaping indoors you can just pop a window open or turn a fan on to speed up the process.  As long as the air is not stagnant the burnt popcorn aroma is going to be gone in no time.  If you absolutely need to vaporize indoors without anyone knowing then I recommend grabbing  a Smoke Buddy Junior, they work great and when paired with a vaporizer will leave almost no trace.  Usually when I have to vape somewhere and be secretive about it I will just run outside around the corner.  But if you just can’t make it outside or find a window, try vaping the closet or blowing the vapor underneath a blanket.  Vapor doesn’t stick to clothes like smoke does, there is far less particles in the vapor to attach to the material.  That does not mean you will be 100% free from residual smells but you will be better off than you would have been smoking a blunt, the difference is not even close.

Vaping brings a bunch of different benefits to the table and being less stinky is definitely one of them.  If you are about to go out on a date and he/she doesn’t know you get high the last thing you want to do is light up a joint in the car on the way to dinner.  The Palm vaporizer is perfect for these situations, grind up some herbs before you leave for the date and get the vaporizer loaded.  Then wash your hands and grab some perfume or cologne for later.  You will be free to vape at your leisure throughout the date thanks to “bathroom breaks” or “important phone calls” you have to take outside.  If you are really worried about the smell you can mask it with a little bit of the fragrance you brought with you, if not just hop back inside and enjoy the rest of the night.  Places like the movies where you will be sitting close together all night can be a bit trickier, one suggestion would be to grab a huge tub of popcorn.  Like I mentioned before the smell of vaped weed is VERY similar to popcorn so it is pretty much the perfect disguise.

We here at Palm Vaporizer blog love to vape obviously but our next passion is camping.  Today we will go over some of the best places to camp and vape at the same time.

Shi Shi Beach in Washington State is probably my favorite place to vape.  It located between the Olympic National forest and the Pacific Ocean on very the tip of the peninsula.  It is extremely remote and pretty much the farthest point in the counter going north and west.  It is on an Indian reservation and not a very well know place to camp.  Depending on when you go you might see as many as 20 other tents on the two mile beach, but that is about as packed as it ever gets.  It’s extremely great place to vape and relax and go swimming in the ocean.  You can see eagles, seals, star fish and even bears.  So make sure to hide your food, the local police chief of the Makah Indian reservation came down and warned that there had been other bear sitings recently.

The next place I love to go camping with my Palm portable vaporizer is the Redwoods.  The giant trees make the tiny Palm vaporizer look even more miniscule.  Just make sure you pack some extra batteries because you won’t be able to recharge while you are out there.  I brought my Iolite Wispr as a backup but never ended up using it.  The vapor that the palm produces is a bit tastier and thicker in my opinion.  Vaping on misty mountain trail is a great experience, you can become one with nature and get lost in the trees and ferns.  I saw a deer frolicking along the side of trail and played hide and seek with it for hours.  We also a family of chipmunks feasting together up in a tree while the birds sang songs to them.  Here is a picture of me after a long hike, I need to stop and take a rest and didn’t realize Hubert had his camera out.

The last camping spot I will show you today is one that I just recently discovered.  It is called Wayfarers State Park and is up in Montana.  It is a beautiful little park right next to the lake.  It has some good amenities as well like a pay telephone, RV dump station, toilets, boat launch and trash removal.  Some of things you can do there while vaping your Palm and good weed is hiking, motor boating, water skiing, kayaking, canoeing, fishing and and bird watching.  I like take a big bag of weed hop in the Kayak and go paddle around.  It is a super fun time and something everyone should try at least once.  The campground also has bear resistant storage in case you are worried about a hungry bear snatching up all candy and snacks.  One time in Shi Shi beach when I was camping a seagull came and stole my sack lunch!  I turned around for one second to take a hit from my vape and next thing I new I had no food to eat.
