While our title is perhaps slightly inaccurate due to the fact that Whoopi Goldberg actually penned a column for The Cannabist, which is owned by The Denver Post, we wrote a love letter to our favorite vaporizer – only ours is a desktop, not a portable.
We should clarify though, we love portables and we love desktops, but if we absolutely had to choose just one, there’s a reasonable chance we’d go with a desktop because one desktop vape in particular really stands out from the rest of the vapes out there and that’s the Volcano. Both of them. They’re killer vapes that have been the reigning kings of plugin vapes for years and years and years. You get the point. So we put together a piece in which we confessed our love in a style reminiscent of what Goldberg penned for The Cannabist. Want to see it? You can find it on Wattpad, where we published it under the title: “A Love Letter To My Favorite Vaporizer”. Catchy name, right?
For reference, we only recently made an account on Wattpad, like literally hours ago. The reason why we did it is simple: we like to read, we like to write, and we like to user the internet. So it just made sense. Now we’re on there and since we’re there, knowing ourselves, we knew we’d eventually start sharing our own writings and this piece, our love letter to our favorite vape, is one of our earliest shares. But before it, we actually shared another vaping related piece, which is actually a short story (or so we labeled/categorized it). This one, quite different, is actually a bit of history mixed with a bit of imagination, but written in an almost auto-biographical sense, only from a third party perspective. Anyhow, it’s a short read, as they both are, so if you have a few minutes and read fast, you could probably read them both. Then again, perhaps that’s of little interest to you and something shinier will catch your eye first and with a click you’ll be gone. That’s just the way the internet is and we understand that, which is why we’re just going to leave you with this link to our short story and move on to the next topic before you get bored!
“I’ll sit and reminisce of all the good times we’ve had, all he good times we’ve had together.”
The quote above is taken straight from our “love letter” to our favorite vape. To add more context, we were talking about what we’d do in the aftermath of our favorite vaporizer’s demise. Fortunately, that day won’t seemingly by anytime soon thanks to the high quality exhibited by the Volcano and the excellent customer support that Storz & Bickel offers through their U.S.-based subsidiary, Storz & Bickel NA (North America), which is actually based just across the water from San Francisco is the less globally recognized Bay Area city of Oakland, California.
In case you’re wondering what we’ll share next on Wattpad, which we ourselves couldn’t tell you right now, you can always follow us on there to stay current. Our username there is VaporizerShark (surprise!). It’s hard to say right now at what rate we’ll be sharing stories there since we’re new and still getting a feel for it. Basically, we have yet to decide how much we really like the publishing platform and community so we’re just going to have to wait things out a bit and see. But in the meantime, you can rest assured that we’ll be continuing to update our website a VaporizerShark.com on a regular basis. And this blog too for that matter. So follow them both. Follow it all. Just follow something so you don’t hurt our feelings (lol). Thanks! 🙂
So we made a little mini-website on Wix a while ago but we were looking at it again recently and realized: we put together a nice little site! While this might not be blog-worthy reading material for some of you, we thought it was worth sharing and with it, a little bit about what we’ve been up to on it as of late. So if you care to know, continue reading because we’re going to talk a bit about it.
We made this little mini vape site back in August of this year. Now that some time has passed, we’re revisiting it and seeing how much cool content we’ve already added to it since we started it and we’re impressed with what we’re seeing. Heck, it’s only October 3rd right now and already we’ve added a fresh new piece of content – a partial review of the new Arizer Solo 2 which came out not long ago. We actually have the complete review up on our website but you should already know that if you keep up with our blog here on WordPress because we dedicated our last post here to talking all about it. So you must have seen it. Either that or you don’t keep up with our blog, which we suggest you do! You can even “follow” our blog here on WordPress so you never miss an update! Which is obviously something we strongly suggest doing, that is, if you even like to vape bro. Haha, we joke. But seriously, follow our blog. And then visit our site at VaporizerShark.com because that’s where we keep all of the good stuff – our full length vaporizer reviews, guides, and more. It’s all there. Check it out if you know what’s good for you because we are one of the most comprehensive vaping resources on the web and we’re growing every day. Anyways, enough with the heavy serving of self-promotion, we’re going to talk more about what we came here to talk about and that’s our little Wix website.
When we call it a mini website, we really mean just that. It’s not just a blog. If it was just a blog, would it have a separate homepage? We think not. And being as that is the case, it has its own separate section for the blog. So obviously it’s a website seeing as it has all this, just a small one. No big deal. We like it. It’s cute. It does what we want it to do and it’s really easy to manage because Wix did a pretty darn good job of making some easy tools to make website building and managing straight forward and simplified. Definitely easy enough for us, thankfully. In fact, it was so easy to setup it’s actually given us plenty of time to add new content to it, which is something we did a bit of very recently when we added a fresh piece about the newest Arizer vaporizer, the Solo II. This is a vape that was on our radar early on and when we got a chance to review it, we jumped on the opportunity because just about every vaporizer of theirs has been pretty much incredible, especially when you take into account how inexpensive they price them out for. And lo and behold, it’s another top notch vape. But that’s a topic (how well the Solo 2 works) that we’ve already covered in great depth recently both on our website and here on our WordPress blog so we’re not going to get into all that now other than to say what we just said. So if you want more information on it, you know where to find it.
Now back to our little Wix site. What we really like about it, or at least one of the things we really like about it, is its homepage. It looks great the way the content is meshed together. Everything looks nice, functions well, and basically – we just don’t have any complaints as far as it’s concerned. But we do have a complaint with something else and that’s the horrible looking sub-domain that is part of the URL to our site. It just looks bad. But for having paid nothing to use Wix’s tools and have them host our little site, we are definitely not complaining. Much so the opposite. That’s a lot for nothing. Definitely appreciate the free space and complimentary site building tools. If you haven’t, you may want to check them out for yourself – they make building a little site pretty quick and painless even for a novice that doesn’t know a thing about how to build a site.

The Arizer Solo II, as it maker likes to refer to it, is a bit larger than what you might expect from a portable vaporizer designed for dried blends but it’s still a whole lot more portable than Arizer’s Extreme Q, which is designed for the desktop but does have a battery pack that makes it cordless for those of you who don’t already know. Now while it’s not the smallest, it is small enough that we have managed to put it into some pockets. If you’re thinking a small pocket on your pants, you might want to think again. While it might fit there, there’s a chance it’ll be a tight squeeze. But if you have baggy pockets on your pants or a big pocket on your jacket, you can easily stash it away. Then again, you can also clip it to your belt using its belt-clip carrying case accessory. But if you’re trying to be a bit more discreet, a big pocket, purse, or backpack should suffice. So it’s not the most portable, that much is clear. But it’s still a more than worthwhile vape and we’re going to tell you why.
For one, the new Solo has digital temperature controls – something the original didn’t have, at least not like this. The original had preset temps and just a couple of handfuls to choose from, less even. Which hardly compares to the wide range of temperatures that the new version offers, all of which accessible via the builtin digital temperature controls, which entail a big display and buttons to push the temp up and down. Easy to use? Super easy to use. We love it. Reminds us of the Mighty by Storz & Bickel or the Ascent, only a much better display than the Ascent in our opinion. It also has more battery life than the original, which is good because who wouldn’t want more? The original had enough but this extended battery life, which is about double what the original offers, is that much more – easily enough to get through the day even if you share some of that precious battery life with your friends. It’s also, in a general sense, much more powerful.
How’s the Vapor?
The vapor is really one of the big talking points here for a couple of reasons: it’s one of the most important variables to assess and it’s one of the aspects where the Solo 2 really shines. The vapor quality we see coming out of the new Solo is super impressive. This is serious vapor production and we wouldn’t expect any less from Arizer. They’ve shown a lot of improvement with the new version and this is one area where there’s no exception – the vapor is definitely better with the S2 and the original. A job well done in this regard. It’s tasty, thick, and pure. And where it’s not quite that smooth, you can make it smoother with a water piece attached to it, which is something you can actually do thanks to the adapter that Arizer makes for it. Really all of the bases covered, except for one: the draw resistance. It really could have less draw resistance. While this isn’t an issue, it does make it a little less pleasant to use. But if you can get over that, or if you can master a little trick to decrease the draw resistance we outlined in our in-depth Arizer Solo 2 review published on our site, you’ll absolutely love using this vape. Its vapor production is out of this world. Definitely top tier as far as vapor production goes. You’ll be hard pressed to find a dry blend portable that produces better vapor than this bad boy here.
Precision Temperature Control
When it comes to controlling this vape’s temp, Arizer makes it easy. Instead of limiting your options, the S2 offers a full range of vaping temps to choose from. And accessing them is made easy via the display, which shows the current and set temps, and temperature adjustment buttons that let you make adjustments on the fly with great ease and a high level of precision. This is basically a home run as far as we’re concerned, Arizer really hit it out of the park with the S2’s temp controls and it shows, especially in comparison to the original Solo vaporizer’s.
How does it work?
The Solo 2 uses conduction to heat the blend. When you draw on it, the vapor travels from the stainless steel bowl through the glass mouthpiece and to your mouth. There are a few different options as far as mouthpieces/stems are concerned. You can use the straight one, one with a mouthpiece tip, a bent one, and even attach it to your favorite water piece and hit it through that. Whatever option you choose, you’ll almost certainly be impressed with the outcome. After you’re done, it’ll turn off automatically thanks to its auto-shutoff timer. A lot of the features it has can be accessed/controlled through the menu which you access by clicking the big button in between the temperature control buttons. We suggest setting the startup timer to the lowest interval so you can get to vaping quicker when you first turn it on.
To help explain how it works, here’s a video published on YouTube by Got Vape, one of the most well known names in the vaporizer industry.
Arizer Solo 2 Tips
Want some tips on how to use it? We’ve compiled some here for you to enjoy. We have more information on how to use the Arizer Solo 2 on our website at VaporizerShark.com so be sure to head on over there and check out our complete Solo 2 review to learn more if you’re not finding what you want to learn here in this brief review summary we’ve shared here on our blog on WordPress.
Really grind your blend up well because if you grind it well and pack it loose while you vape at high temps, you’ll get some SERIOUS vapor production. No exaggeration here – you’re going to be impressed with the vapor it spits out when you vape like this.
Try lifting the stem up a little bit so that some air can flow through the bottom if you’re having trouble with draw resistance.
Want to make the vapor smoother? Use the water adapter to connect your favorite water piece.
Buy the car charger if you spend a lot of time on the road, it’ll help ensure that you’re never out of juice when you want to use it.
Share it with your friends. They’re going to love you for it.
Comparison: Arizer Solo VS Solo 2
How do these two vapes stack up against each other? That’s a great question to ask. Why bother getting the new one instead of the old one? The answer is simple: because it’s better. But why exactly it’s better is something we’ll explain to you. It has improved battery life, more power, better vapor, better temperature controls, a wide temperature range, and it’s even a little bit smaller. All in all, it’s just clearly superior. If you have to choose, definitely go with the new one because it’s that much better. But if you do have to pickup the original instead for whatever reason, be it the cost or what have you, you will not be disappointed because even though it’s inferior to the Solo II, it’s still a really good vape. Absolutely solid in our book. You’ll love it. You’ll just love the new version that much more. We wrote about this topic much more extensively in an article we published on LinkedIn, titled: “Why The Arizer Solo 2 Is That Much Better Than The Original Solo Vaporizer” – a long title we admit, but it gets the point across, no?
The Heat Up Time
Why is this a big deal? That answer should be obvious but if it’s not here’s why: waiting around for your vape to heat up when you want to get to vaping as quickly as possible is awful. So when your vape takes minutes to heat up and you’re trying to take some quick puffs and be on your way, you’re going to wish you went with a vape like the Solo 2 instead. It heats up in less than a minute. Less than 30 seconds for that matter. It is, needless to say, impressive. You will not be disappointed with the heat up time. Still, there are better – the Firefly 2 in particular comes to mind with its near-instant heat up time. But when it comes to heat up times in general, the S2 is definitely on the right side of the equation.
Who is the Solo 2 designed for?
This is the kind of vape that you could give to a first time vaper with a packed stem and tell them where to stick it and they’d probably figure out the rest on their own. It’s that easy. It’s also great for experiences vapers who just need a really good portable vape and don’t mind the extra size (it’s not the smallest) because it pushes out vapor like it’s a plugin vape only it’s 100% portable. So it really doesn’t matter who you are, there’s a good chance this hi-quality portable Arizer vaporizer is a good fit for you so long as quality vapor, ease of use, and dry blends only is what you have in mind. Although, we do want to note that if you check out our full review on our site, you will find more information on its potential to vape concentrates so if you’re curious about that — whether it can vape various forms of extracts — be sure to check out our complete review, which we’ll link to again at the bottom of this article in case you missed it earlier.
How does it compare to the Arizer Air?
This is an interesting comparison and while we have tested the Air, we have yet to publish a review for it on our website. However, we did notice an Arizer Air review on VapeGuide.com that’s more or less in line with our own view on it after having tested it somewhat extensively so if you want to learn more about it, you can always take a look at their review. But for now, we’ll offer a quick breakdown on the differences in order to explain why we prefer the Solo 2 even though it is quite a bit bigger. Basically, the Solo 2 is better in every way with two exceptions: portability (size) and battery life. While the Solo 2’s battery actually lasts longer, the Air offers a feature that we love to see in portable vapes: the ability to swap out a dead battery for a fresh one. So as soon as it’s done, no need to wait for it to recharge, you can just move on to the next. But it is worth noting that the Solo 2 does have the ability to be used while it’s charging so there’s no actually waiting for it to recharge – only you do have to plug it in to recharge which temporarily transforms it into a plugin vaporizer. Once it’s adequately charged, back to a portable. But then there’s the size difference. The Air is the right size but it lacks in features and quality what the Solo 2 delivers in stride. Both are good but the Solo 2 is better. However, if you need something smaller, the Arizer Air is an excellent alternative.
Keeping the Solo II clean isn’t the easiest task but it’s far from difficult. There are definitely portables that are far more of a pain to clean. This is definitely one of the easiest we’ve come across thus far. All you do is pull the stem, drop it in isoproyl alcohol (ISO) and let it soak for a while then rinse it under warm water and let it dry. Take a cotton swab of sorts and gently dip it in some ISO and use it to clean the oven area. Make sure you run some temp cycles after to burn off any leftover residue and you’re good to go. That’s basic maintenance for you. Couldn’t be easier.
That link will take you directly to our complete Arizer Solo 2 vaporizer review on our website at VaporizerShark.com, which is where you’ll find a much more in-depth analysis of the new Solo along with additional technical information, tips, and various insights. You’ll also find more comparisons in which we compare it to its most formidable competitors to see how it fares – competitors which include the likes of the newest Pax vaporizer, the Pax 3, and the newest Storz & Bickel vaporizers, the Crafty and Mighty, and others. You definitely want to check it out if you still have questions about the Solo 2 or just want to learn more about it in general. And while you’re there, you’ll find additional vaporizer reviews as well as reviews of vaporizer accessories, not to mention our growing repository of vaping guides and vapor industry news updates. So in a general sense, if you just want to learn more about vaping and the products that compose the industry, head on over to our site and take a stroll through the world of vaporization with us as your guide.

Earlier this year, analyst with Wells Fargo let loose his forecast for the vapor industry: $400 million in growth. That’s undoubtedly a very large number and to us, not at all surprising to hear. While it may or may not be accurate, there’s certainly no question about it: the vapor industry is growing and growing rapidly at that. The industry has come a long way since the early days of poorly designed vaporizers that hardly worked, turning off many who gave it a try on a whim. Those with high expectations were almost certainly disappointed by the early attempts by manufacturers to put together products capable of producing vapor. But now, years later, we have products like the Volcano that have put vaporizing on the map as less of a novelty and more of a serious alternative to smoking. For those that enjoy vapor on the move, there are countless portable options from e-cigs to portable vaporizers. With all of the options, many of which being worthwhile, the industry has taken on a whole new shape and it’s no surprise to find that big money, such as the wealth behind the world’s tobacco giants, is betting on vapor. This includes companies from RJ Reynolds to Japan Tobacco International, the latter of which is commonly referred to by the acronym JTI. And those are just a couple of the major players who have taken a stake in the growing industry. Needless to say, this is one industry that is destined to reach great heights and investors as well as the companies displaced by the new industry are well aware, which is why it’s no surprise to find large influxes of cash invested in the space.
Take Ploom for example, a company backed by JTI. With their big money backing, they’ve managed to take the portable vaporizer space to new heights. Haven’t heard of them? They’re the same company behind the highly successful line of portable vaporizers known as the Pax vaporizers. After having sold off their stake in Ploom to JTI and formed a new corporate entity known as Pax Labs, the company continues to produce Pax vapes while Ploom, now owned by JTI, continues to produce Ploom Pods, which are essentially an electronic cigarette variant. Just two years ago, Pax Labs secured over $46 million in investment during its Series C funding round. With that said, there’s no question about it, this is a serious industry with big money betting on its success.
What do you think, is the vapor industry poised to reach great heights? Will it eventually replace cigarettes as the go to for tobacco aficionados? Or will it fizzle out like Pokemon Go and prove to be nothing more than a fad? If you ask us, the answer is clear: vaporizers are going on to big things and they’re less of a fad and more of a logical alternative to cigarettes and the like. Chime in with your own thoughts in the comments section below.

We put a lot of effort into creating a little website with a blog attached to it over on Weebly. Here’s why we’re not happy with the outcome.
Thus far, WordPress, for us, has proven way easier to use. This isn’t very surprising given that we have more experience using this platform. But we’d heard good things about the Weebly.com website building software and so we gave it a spin and after the dust settled, it looked like a big steamy pile of garbage baking in the hot summer sun. What happened?
Well, for one, we couldn’t get it to look the way we wanted it to. We didn’t have a cool graphic to use at the top so we used some water that looks, well, not good. Then we couldn’t find a font we liked. The layout itself seemed drab. Very bland. So in the end, it doesn’t look good. Right now, we’re thinking about going back in and spicing things up with a little bit of TLC. Will we actually do it? Hopefully. But our priorities are elsewhere. We’ve got a website, VaporizerShark.com, that requires a lot of attention and we’d like to give it to it instead of messing around with blogs that came up looking pretty darn crumby. So we’re going to put a pin in this. We’ll hopefully revisit this to make it look better. If not, don’t even worry about it because we’re not worried about it. Instead, keep checking back here at blog at VaporizerShark.WordPress.com because this is where we post the bulk of our updates. This is, if you didn’t know, our MAIN blog. So bookmark it. Save it. Do whatever you have to do to make it easy for you to come back because you’re going to be seeing a lot of updates here and they’re going to come pretty frequently. For you WordPress users, follow us!
Want to see what our Weebly site looks like? You can visit it here. Or you can just look at the screen shot we took below. It doesn’t do a good job of showing you the whole site, but it’s probably pretty obvious at a glance that it doesn’t look nearly as cool as this one.
Analyzing it a bit, it seems a little redundant. Like it says our name at the very top and then again right beneath that in a bigger, somewhat terribly conveyed fashion, and then our name appears again before the page cuts off. The last time being the little about us “Author” box we decided to include in the column on the right for people who visit it and don’t know who we are or what we’re about. Was this a good idea? We’re not sure but we did it anyways. Then there’s the almost eerie amount of white on the page. It really makes the bad fonts and the bad banner at the top stick out more. While we can appreciate a simple setup, this is just poorly executed in our opinion. Now, we do want to point out that we didn’t actually design the layout itself, we just customized it a bit with Weebly’s drag-and-drop style do-it-yourself website builder software that they offer to everyone. It made it fairly easy to pull off but the result was less than we were hoping for. We mostly blame ourselves, not Weebly’s software, for how poorly it turned out. We could have put some more effort into it to make it look better but alas, we did not, so what is there to say other than we’ll try to improve it when we have the time. But for now, given that it is relatively new, we think we’ve done an alright job.
What do you think? Looks pretty bad, huh? Yeah. Not our finest work. That much is for sure. So what do you think? Leave a comment letting us know what you think if you care to. You can use the comments section below to do just that!

This is somewhat of a significant update from the team here at Vaporizer Shark. We’ve been hard at work putting together some interesting content for all of you to enjoy and we think you’ll be impressed when you get a chance to take a look at what we’ve managed to piece together from our combined insight into the vape scene.
Pax 3 Info
Starting things off with what we published most recently, we put together a quick guide for novices who just aren’t sure what a Pax 3 vaporizer is, but it’s not just for novices as experienced vapers might also learn a thing or two about the latest Pax by reading it so regardless of your level of expertise, there’s a good chance you’ll want to read it. Summarizing a bit of what you’ll find in it, we talk about what the Pax 3 is, how it works, what it’s for, its features, options, price, dimensions, where to buy it, and more. Here’s a hint on that last one: the answer is not Amazon, which we’ll explain a bit in this next segment.
To add a little context to what we’re talking about here, the P3 as we’re going to refer to it right now is one of the most well known portable vaporizers there is. Its predecessors have really helped pave the way for its arrival, gaining a lot of attention along the way. The company that makes them has some serious funding behind it and a team of really bright people running the show so pretty much everything we see out of them is impressive in one way or another. The P3? No exception. It’s compact, literally just as compact as the Pax 2 for that matter, which is the one that came before it. And when we say compact, we really mean it. As in, this vape can fit in your pocket and you’ll hardly notice it – if you notice it at all, that is. It has a lot of cool features which surprisingly even includes games. Wait, did we just say this vape has games? Yeah. You can play games. How cool is that? If you ask us, the answer is very. As in very cool. Another feature that you just can’t overlook is its concentrate insert, or concentrate lid. Whatever you want to call it, this addition snaps right in and lets you vape concentrates. Without it, you can only vape dried blends. But with it, the world is yours, basically. Love this little vape. One of the best around right now, at least of the ones we’ve tested. Now onto the next.
Should You Buy A Cheap Volcano On Amazon?
Cheap Volcano vaporizers for sale on Amazon? Think again. Amazon isn’t about the vape, at least not as of present. So for now, if you see something on there, perhaps it’s legit, perhaps it’s not, but either way – there’s a chance Amazon doesn’t even know it’s there because they don’t seem to be too fond of vape sellers listing their inventories on their site. So for now, the best place is to buy it either direct from the manufacturer, Storz & Bickel, or from an authorized retailer. You can click right here to take a look at our article about this very topic, it’s titled: Cheap Volcano Vaporizer For Sale On Amazon? But then again, you already know the answer. Still, there’s more information in it that we’re not bothering to reiterate here so if you want to know more, just take a look for yourself.
Not sure what a Volcano is? While we feel like we’re repeating ourselves here given how many times we’ve described what it is and how it works to our friends both online and off, we’ll reiterate ourselves what be the millionth time. The Volcano is a vaporizer, a very popular one, that’s made in Germany and distributed worldwide. It’s one of the best ever made (seriously) and it’s one of the most fun to use. The way it’s designed, you’re basically filling a bag with vapor and then attaching a mouthpiece a valve on it to the bag so that you can you trap the vapor and hit it when you want. Does it work? Phenomenally well. Are there options with it? Yeah but just a few. You’re basically deciding between the digital version and the analog, we guess, version. These are known as the Digit Volcano and Classic Volcano. Which is better? The Digit. Which costs less? The Classic. Then there are the valve types. These also correspond with bag types. With the “Easy” version of the valve, you have a kit that’s designed to be used and then thrown away and replaced. The bags for this kit are one size. With the “Solid” version, the bags are whatever size you want them to be and the whole thing is intended to be cleaned and reused. No matter what options you choose, what you’re getting is incredible. We don’t say it lightly when we refer to this vape as the best there is. If you need a desktop vaporizer, this is the one to get.
Pax 4 Rumors
And the last thing we want to share with you right now is all about a vaporizer that doesn’t currently exist, at least not as far as we or the public at large are aware. Not yet anyways. And that vape is the… drum roll… Pax 4 vaporizer! Does it exist? We don’t know! Is it under construction? Maybe! That about summarizes what this article is about, although we do get into greater detail. So if you’re wondering when the Pax 4 comes out, we basically have no information whatsoever because we have yet to hear of any potential release date, just rumors that it’s in the works but those are rumors we have been unable to validate. So for now, the next Pax will remain nothing more than a ghost – some will believe in it and others will not. For us, we won’t write it off but we’re waiting until we see something tangible or some formal announcement from Pax Labs. Until then, we’ll just keep on wondering like the rest of you.
We want to know what features you think the next Pax should have. Perhaps it should use a standard 18650 lithium-ion battery design that allows the user to swap the battery out quickly and easily. Or maybe it should have a big LED display. What do you think? Use the comments section below to let us know!
This update is brought to you by the team at VaporizerShark.com
We shared some new reviews of grinders as well as some guides on our website at VaporizerShark.com and wanted to take a moment to tell you about all of it. This might take more than a moment but if you’re interested, just keep on reading!
To kick things off, we went ahead and published a new guide for a very specific audience: those who are looking for an alternative to the Magic Flight Finishing Grinder, which is a grinder by the makers of the MFLB vape, Magic-Flight. What it’s designed for is turning your dried blends into a very fine ground. Its fine grinding is what turns some many users on to it, vapers and smokers alike. But for the vape crowd, it’s truly a godsend given that it’s perfect for some vaporizers. A nice, finely ground blend works well with certain vapes and for those who don’t know, what we’re talking about is better vapor production. As we’ve seen numerous times, sometimes all it tanks is cranking up the heat, drawing slowly, and using a finely ground blend to get the thick clouds you’re after. And that last part is where the Finishing Grinder by Magic-Flight steps into the picture. But for those who don’t want a manual grinder or just don’t want this particular one but are in need of a grinder to create a very fine grind, as opposed to a course one, there is an alternative and that’s what we discuss in our guide – the alternative.
After that, we went ahead and published a review we had been working on for a while. Well, not so much the review itself by the testing, to be more specific as to what we’ve been “working” on. The grinder, well actually two grinders but we’ll get to the other one next, is the Space Case 4 piece grinder, the “standard” version. This means it’s not magnetic and it’s not titanium, just a good ol’ fashioned aluminum grinder with four stages. This high quality aluminum grinder is one of the best we’ve used, particularly the large size. It’s easy to grab onto to crank it around and grind up your blend and its razor sharp diamond cut teeth do an excellent job of quickly shredding through whatever you put in it. Then there’s the bottom chamber, the reason why we like the 4 piece design, which is separated from the chamber that catches your ground blend by a fine mesh screen that’s used to sift your ground blend, extracting fine particles. It’s called a pollen collector but it’ll collect just about any type of small particle. So for us, it’s basically an extract collector and it’s something that we struggle to imagine living without. It’s just nice to have it, a little something special on the side, you know?
Then there’s our guide on the differences between aluminum and titanium grinders, which is something that we know a lot of folks out there are interested in. You’ve heard the rumors, but what are the facts? We shed some light and dive into our own personal experiences with grinders to add some validity to our stance. That and we cite the CDC’s take on aluminum and humans. Definitely worth a read. You can find the guide here on our site.
And then there’s the other grinder we reviewed, the titanium Space Case grinder, the 2 piece one in particular. This shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise given that we also recently published that aluminum grinders versus titanium grinders guide we just mentioned. Here it is, our very first titanium grinder review on our website. Worth reading? Definitely. We have plans to share our thoughts on the 4 piece version as well, but we can’t say for sure when we’ll get around to it with so many other vape accessories and vaporizers to review. We really have our work cut out for us in this quest to test, rate, and review all of the vapes and vape accessories we can get our hands on. What a quest we’ve embarked upon – what a quest! And a fun one. We’ll have another update soon. In the meantime, be sure to visit our website and check out all of our latest guides and reviews!
Coming up in our next blog post here on WordPress, we’re off our grinder train and back on our vape train with some updates pertaining to the Pax and Volcano vaporizers. So stay tuned for more because we’ll hit you with it before you know it!
