Zeus Thunder 2Read More
I’ve used a lot of vape pens in my day, and this is definitely one of the better ones. While the Zeus Thunder 2 may not be the flashiest vape out there, it’s a competent pen that works reliably, and what more could you really want from a vape? It’s nice to see the trend of companies moving away from exposed coils, and the ceramic heating element of the Thunder makes for smooth, flavorful hits. Loading the pen is slightly more complicated than some pens, requiring a small cap to be unscrewed from the vaporization chamber. This can lead to some issues, since you definitely don’t want to lose the cap in a crowded concert, but helps to keep the runny hash goop from overflowing and gunking up the vape. Pre-loading the pen makes it great for on-the-go usage, like hiking, biking, or any other activity requiring motion at which you’ll want to tote a toke. The vaporization chamber sits inside a glass housing, allowing you to see the hit as you take it, which is a nice feature lacking in some comparable models. If you are looking for an inconspicuous reliable vape, Zeus Thunder gets the job done. torontovaporizer.ca
TORCH GERRL CREW NECK!Read More
reviewed by Lindsay Quinn
WARNING: you will receive attention while wearing this item. The sweatshirt itself is comfortable, breathable, not too heavy, and made with 100% Cotton. The over-sized fit goes perfectly with a pair of jeans or over some black leggings. The screen-print is the eye-catcher – after wearing the pullover home on a walk from the office, many people would drop the “hang-loose” gesture or verbally inform me that they partake in the dab-centric culture. If you don’t mind the fellow dabber or two paying compliments, then this is a fall must-have for every dabbing gal. mmjco.com
Puffco Plus Vape PenRead More
reviewed by DJ Reetz
Sleek and stylish, this vaporizer from Puffco is a good looking apparatus. With a weighty feel, this vape gives users the feeling of durability, and the slick gun metal design adds to that. While the Puffco Plus looks good on the outside, it’s what’s inside that really sets it apart from some of the other vapes on the market. A ceramic atomizer is the standout feature (no coils here) and as a bonus, the mouthpiece is fitted with a small ceramic loading tool. You won’t have to ball your wax up with your fingers to load this one, just unscrew the mouthpiece, scoop out the concentrate you want, and screw the mouthpiece back on with the glob still attached. There are three power settings, so you can crank it up if you’ve got some solid shatter or leave it low to enjoy the full terpene profile of your live resin. There’s also a “sesh” setting, activated by clicking the power button twice, that will keep the atomizer activated for a short time, allowing you to more easily share your vape with friends who might not be familiar with your hardware. I found myself using the sesh mode just to get the bigger rips that it allows for, letting it run for just a second or two before each pull. If you’re looking for a higher quality vape, check out Puffco. I’m looking forward to making it part of my routine. www.puffco.com
Shaken, Stirred, Drizzled, Garnished: Beautifully Concocted Cannabis CocktailsRead More
by Caroline Hayes
This is one of the most impressive books we have seen in a while. Aesthetically pleasing, concise, informational and fun are just a few words I would use to describe Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails & Tonics. There is so much knowledge in this blue and red book about drinks. Author Warren Bobrow is clearly an expert, and he provides the reader with information to help enhance their cannabis consumption in a really good way.
First of all, why alcohol? Well, for those of you who don’t know, alcohol works well as a solvent, breaking down the available cannabinoids in the plant matter to allow for better absorption into your system. Alcohol is inexpensive, and when used correctly, creates a mostly healthful drink prepared with ingredients that all work together in a positive way.
Now, you might think that combining alcohol and cannabis would be dangerous — and it can be, so remembering “everything in moderation” is very helpful here. Bobrow gives plenty of warning about the dangers of over-medicating with the combination, and encourages everyone to sip slowly and listen to your body. These drinks of art were crafted to help you feel better — not worse.
There are 75 recipes in this book meant to guide you through your day, such as morning cocktails intended to light you up instead of weigh you down, and afternoon cocktails to chill out with. Many of the recipes can be made without the alcohol if that’s a worry for you, and the recipes generally call for only a small amount of alcohol. Bobrow gives a list of strains, flavor profiles and what alcohol they taste best with, as well as what time of day to enjoy them. The recipes to make the infusions that go into the drinks are simple with clear instruction, and they range from tinctures and simple syrups to coconut creams.
The health benefits that lie in each drink are deeper than just cannabis. Cannabis Cocktails, Mocktails and Tonics made me view the way I ingest cannabis differently. The recipes are sophisticated, bold and definitely worth your time.

Cypress Hill's Phuncky Feel Tips by ROORRead More
reviewed by Monocle Man
Cypress Hill and ROOR have teamed up to bring us the Phuncky Feel Tips. These German hand-blown glass tips take rolling joints to a whole new level. There are different sizes and colors to choose from along with a couple multi pack options. The Tin 3 Pack comes with one round and two flat-mouthed tips. Each one has the ROOR rasta logo down the side. They also feature a few pinches to ensure you don't get any cannabis in your mouth while smoking.
I found that using them added a lot to the experience. First, the joint had a nice weight to it with the Phuncky Feel Tips and felt very distinguished. You can also really enjoy more of the flavor of the cannabis when using them. The Phuncky Feel Tips are super easy to keep clean. Just throw them in a shot glass with rubbing alcohol and soak for as long as needed.
Make sure to keep an eye on the joint as it gets close to roach status. They are so awesome one of your friends might get sticky fingers. The Tin Pack looks great and would be a great gift for the avid smoker. Its tin case will keep them safe for you if you take them camping or any other outdoor activity. Once it gets warmer these will be in my golf bag for use on the links. Check out their website to see all the different options available. Order yours at roor.de and you will feel the Phuncky difference.

10mm Errl Can Rig by 420 ScienceRead More
reviewed by Samuel Farley, Twitter and Instagram @THC_Samuel
One of the newest creations by 420 Science, the Errl Can rig, is a delight to dab from. Normally, I am not a huge fan of smaller flower pieces or oil rigs simply because I enjoy inhaling with a more open draw or chug. However, for an oil rig that stands only six inches tall, the Errl Can rig provides a smooth draw, and most of all it’s a lot of fun to use. Shaped like a traditional oil can, it’s easy to see the attention to detail and quality in manufacturing. Although tiny in stature, the piece feels like it was made well and does not feel as fragile as other smaller glass pieces I’ve held in the past. The percolation slits are located on the bottom side of the downstem, helping to minimize the amount of water needed while ensuring consistent percolation and filtration. The Errl Can rig comes in two sizes (10mm and 14mm) and four color options including white, black, blue and green with the downstem and mouthpiece featuring the colors.
After my first dab I immediately noticed how clean the hit was for how small the oil rig is. During inhalation, it didn’t feel like it was a tiny rig and had the space during the draw of slightly larger pieces. The hit was full of flavor and lacked any trace of harshness, which always seems to be a problem with smaller rigs. It’s the perfect travel rig or backyard barbecue piece for afternoon dabbing by the bonfire. Retailing for $119.99, the 10mm Errl Can rig by 420 Science is a great option for both experienced dabbers and people new to cannabis concentrates. To shop visit www.420science.com.
