Dabbing is one of my favorite things to do. I have about ten oil rigs in my personal collection.  They are all different styles and shapes.  I personally use the sour glass or Roor glass dab rigs.  The two glass companies have been around a long time and they still produce some of the best durable glass.   You can purchase these dabbing rigs at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP from $50 - $200 depending on the amount of work on the glass.   I usually switch up and use my microG Vaporizer when I'm on the go.  The G-pen is cool for when im traveling, but nothing beats dabbing out of glass dab rig with water!

We sell a number of RDA'S here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO.  These RDA'S need to have the cotton and coils replaced for a better VAPING experience.  I usally change the coils on my RDA every three weeks.  As far as the cotton goes I usually change it out every few days.  We VAPE all day here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO and constantly change E JUICE flavors.  This leads to my cotton getting super caked up with all kinds of E JUICE flavors.  We recommend you change out the cotton to get the true flavors out of your E JUICE. To change your cotton you will need a scewdriver and some pliers.  Some RDA'S that we sell here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO use a allen wrench which usually comes with the RDA.  All you do to change the cotton out is pull it with the pliers.  Then I suggest that you burn the coils to burn anything that may be on them to clean them off.  You need to cut a piece of cotton that you roll into a thin enough thread to fish throught the coil.  Make sure and leave enough cotton to be able to tuck under your coils.  RDA'S usally leave you enough space to tuck under a good amount of cotton.  This will come in handy when soaking with the E JUICE.

A glass pipe is the most common way to smoke.... As people know due to health hazards metal is not recommended. The smoking community was skeptical when it came to vaporizers with metal and plastics surrounding the heating elements. Vaporizers are the cleanest and purest form of smoking

Have you ever wondered how to quit smoking? What if I told you there's an easy solution without going cold turkey to quit smoking!! Electronic cigarettes are the newest innovation for people who want to quit smoking. They are very easy to use and safe. An electronic cigarette consists of a battery, and top/ tank and the most important element being the liquid which is vegetable glycerin, and nicotine.... It is placed inside the tank and voila! Your ready to smoke.... when the battery is fully charged it is placed in screwed onto the tank. When the heating element of the battery and the heating element of the tank touch vapor starts occurring so when you inhale you actually get the nicotine dosage you need to. The stinky smell everyone hates no longer exists with e cigs.... Yes, you heard correctly the horrible smell that stays on your clothes for days, that smell that when you have a party makes everything smell stinky and disgusting is gone with electronic cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes are the newest invention to quit smoking. At Illusions Vape Smoke Shop we sell every single part for your electronic cigarette including every single juice you can possibly imagine from Cherry Cola, melon, blueberry, Bailey's, Marlboro flavor, Cubano cigar flavor, BlackBerry, watermelon, menthol, spearmint, gummy bear and about 150 different other ones!

Glass/Glass VS Glass/Gromit

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.

What Are Percolators In A Bong

A lot of people wonder about the different percolators used in water pipes and if they make much of a difference, and if so which one is the best? The answer to these questions are Yes they make a difference, and there are so many different styles to choose from it really depends on what you're looking for.


 Essentially what a Percolator does is adds an extra filter so that you have a smoother cooler hit. How it works is the smoke passes through the water into the diffuser causing the filtration while also breaking up the smoke with small water bubbles making the smoke disperse evenly into your lungs, while also cooling it at the same time. 


 There are many different styles to choose from, and they continue to make different styles. Their the Tree style ones. These one have arms that come down looking similar to a tree, thus the name "Tree Perk" there can be as little as 3 of the arms all the way to 25. The arms have slits in the bottom that work as a diffuser, the more arms the more diffusion. These ones do make for a very smooth hit but are a bitch to keep clean! So if your are planning on getting one of these styles please practice regular cleaning and maintenance on it! There's also one known as a Dome Perk. The names are very self explanatory when it comes to the perks. It's called a dome as it is a Dome shape.Dome styles are good because they can be used in a lot of different ways. They can have holes along the bottom or slits. The cuts in these makes a difference in how the bubbles are broken up, which makes different types of hits.


 All in all I do recommend every smoker have a water pipe with a Percolator. Knowing what kind is for you requires research and experience. You can have the employees at the shop put some water in for you so you can get a feel of how the water runs though when you suck on it.

Sour Glass Bongs

Joey FierroComment

joey Fierro-September 29,2014

Based out of San Diego, California Sour Glass has bulit a reputable and coveted glass company across the country. From water pipes to bubblers, pipes, dab bubblers, steam rollers, nectar collectors, bowls, stems, and everything that you might need to smoke out of. Prices start as low as $20 and can go up to $1000. Sour invented the "Zong" which is a regular water pipe but it has unique shaped "Z" in the middle of the glass neck. Remember to only to buy Sour Glass from a certified retailer, you never want to buy a piece from just a random store , not knowing the authenticity of the glasswork. There are many horror stories of people who have purchased a brand name glass pipes and it ended up being fake because they purchased it at a swapt meet or a store that was not a certified retailer. It is unfortunate that knock offs have gotten to the point where glass art is being violated at this degree. Glass Pipes are more and more artistic and elaborate these days, so remember you are getting what you pay for and the enhancement of your smoking experience is what is most important!

Pax Vaporizer by Ploom

Some people like to cut corners and just smoke out of papers or off a regular cheap plastic pipe. Not recommended to cut any corners, does your health will reflect it. Even though vaporizers and high-quality water pipes can be pricey we think it is worth every single penny. Knock off vaporizers and clones are more and more perfected to look like the actual authentic vaporizer. That is the reason we tell the customer to please go to a certified retailer when purchasing any vaporizer. I had a young lady bring a “ PAX” she purchased on Ebay, that all of a sudden stopped working on her. Authentic Pax’s have 10 year guarantee. Unfortunately, the Pax she bought was completely fake and for obvious reasons the guarantee did not work. She thought she was saving money by purchasing the vaporizer through Ebay, but unfortunately it was a waste of money, since all sales were final on the sellers profile. This is a sad example of a loss of $200 by trying to save $50. All Pax’s should be no less than $250 it is a regulated price by Vape World the actual manufacturers, so NOBODY can sell you a new one that is authentic and a certified retailer for a lower price. Pax is actually made in Boca Raton, Florida, and made exclusively for Vape World.
