Have you ever wanted to quit smoking?  Has your doctor ever warned you about the hazards of smoking.

If you answered yes to these question you now have a safer alternative to smoking.  What I am talking about is called Vaping.   

What is vaping you may ask. Vaping is the process of using an electronic cigarette, box mod, Vape pen, or any device that can heat up e juice. 

The e juice is made up of flavoring, vegetable glycerin, and Propylene glycol.  When heated up you get a great vapor cloud.

This fairly new invention is for everyone.  From playboy models, teacher, law enforcement, and anyone wanting to quit smoking. 

people that normally would smoke hookah tobacco are now using vapes instead.  The makeup of the e juice is very similar to the flavoring in shisha. 

Feel free to visit our Vape lounge inside of Illusions Vape smoke shop and we will let you try some.

As you all know when purchasing a water pipe, glass on glass pieces are a little more expensive then a glass on gromit piece. Why? you ask.


Well firstly a glass on glass piece is almost always better a quality of glass then glass on gromit. i.e the width/diameter and quality.


Next is the seal is  a lot better with glass on glass.


Replacing the pieces to a glass on gromit piece is a bitch! Have you ever been slowly twisting the downstem in and it breaks in your hand? Yeah it's no fun! Anybody can put a new down-stem on a glass on glass piece. It slides right in and out. The glass is also alot thicker so it doesn't break as easily.


Also the rubber used with glass on gromit is not good for u. You are smoking the fumes of it slowly melting!Not good!


Glass on gromit pieces are good for a every now and then, or as the water pipe u bring out when your clumsy friends are around. But i really recommend a glass on glass water pipe for your daily smoking.
