San Diego Vape Shop Stats

Joey FierroComment

I’ve been keeping tabs on the e-juices lately trying to keep my eyes on the best sellers and this is what I’ve come up with. The top selling brands have been Reds, Blvk Unicorn, Mighty Vapors, Naked and The Milkman. Now that’s only a few out of the many brands that we carry. Those same brands do really well in sales as salt-nics as well. There are many vape stores and shops in San Diego so we try to keep the best juices and salts in stock. Smok has always been a trusted brand for your vape needs and Sourin has been doing exceptionally well in the salt-nic game. If you are looking for a good vape shop in San Diego then look no further. Illusions Vape Smoke Shop keeps the best of the best in stock and if there is anything you need that you can’t find, talk to staff and they can put in an order for you.


F.D.A. Cracks Down

Joey FierroComment

The F.D.A. has recently cracked down on e-cigarettes in an attempt to verify whether 22 e-cigarette companies were operating illegally. The event that sparked this crack down is the exceedingly high amount of teenaged high school students who are now using e-cigarettes. As a smoke shop owner and industry leader I highly encourage that all smoke shops enforce the 21+ law and continue to ask for ID to ensure that no e-cigarettes are being sold to minors or anyone under the age of 21. E-cigarettes were introduced as an alternative to cigarettes to encourage those with addictions to cut down on nicotine and eventually cut the habit all together. Many e-juice manufacturers offer products containing zero nicotine and I personally know people who have gone from smoking one pack a day down to vape juices with zero nicotine. We will never be able to limit everyone from getting their hands on things that they want but we can be more vigilant, it’s our responsibility.

Mi-Pod by Smoking Vapor

Many advantages come with managing a smoke shop, one of them being the ability to test all the new products that hit the market. The Mi-pod is a blend of simplicity, function and fashion that gives you a sub ohm feel of a lung vape with an amazing flavor from your own favorite juice. One disadvantage that I’ve experienced since using it has been the leaks while taking a hit. It never leaks otherwise. I prefer the Juul over the Mi-Pod because of the simplicity of the Juul but I do like having a wider variety of juices available to choose from for the Mi-Pod. Definitely a vape shop hit.

One of the cool new things to do is Take dab hits. It's a very effective way to take your medication and is different from smoking.  People hesitant to smoke often because sometimes unpleasant odor,  but dabbing is changed everything.  Dabbing will allow you to be able to smoke more stealth like. Or You can easily turn your waterpipe into a dabbing piece.  Adding a dabbing domeless nail to you waterpipe is all you really need to do. It will fit perfectly on your 14 mm or 18 mm glass on glass waterpipe. There are different materials that you can have your domeless nail made out of.  The ceramic, titanium and quarter.  It is very important to not over torch your domless nail, becauseof the high possibility of cracking your waterpipe.  Adding to much heat will cause a dramatic temperature change in the glass and can cause damage.  CERAMIC domless nails are a good start to your collection and are not very expensive. The titanium domless nail is also a great choice for the more experienced dabbers ( which is the one I personally like and think is fabulous, because not only does it retain heat for a really long time, also if dropped absolutely nothing will happened to it.)

Remember to purchase a high quality torch lighter, so it can quickly and effectively heat up your domeless nail and you can get the full effect of your dabbing.

DABBING out of A BONG At ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE shop Updated: August 22, 2015 When using your bongs we suggest that you put enough water to be able to get a good filter out of your WATERPIPE. But, you dont want to fill it to much over the bottom of the downstem.

One of my favorite types of bongs to use is the vortex waterpipe. It's a very versatile pipe and can be used for dabbing.  What makes this Bong stand out is that the vortex percolator allows for air flow to move through it easily. he waterpipe will make the smoke vortex into a tornado.  What makes this waterpipe different then other WATERPIPES is that you don't get any clogging. When dabbing your always going to get a lot oil residue that will get trapped on the percolator. So it's very important that your piece be able to handle this and the vortex bong does just that.  But, I again tell you that a cool thing about the vortex bong is that it actually provides a tornado affect. Providing a good filter with the water allowing for a very smooth hit. I have been through many water pieces and the one of my favorites is definitely the vortex bong.This waterpipe is very easy to use and durable.

One of my favorite things to dois to try new e juice flavor. The number of new e juice companies that are creating the perfect blend of juice is just amazing. We now have flavored of all sorts. From different companies like Stay classy, liquid state, and vape porn e juice.  Weather it's your favorite pastry, candy, and even drink these e juices are just amazing and a direct match. My current favorite flavor is from a company named CHALIES CHALK DUST and the flavor is called slam berry. This flavor is one of the best e juice flavor in a Vape stores.

Private Reserve E Juice line has been in the Vape Industry for over 3 years.  They are a local company with roots here in southern California.  This is a great company that is very committedto bringing the vape Industy the best Product.  There blend is a 75% vg and 25% pg mix.  We retail this product at $12. My person favorite juice that they make is the half baked waffer.

I personally don't use a tank so my e juice favorites are all over the board.  I will switch from a UNICORN MILK BY CUTTWOOD to the Vapeporn THE ORIGINALS e juice.  The Vape porn The Originals is a very nice blend of lychee and cream.  Very good balance of both flavors.  The mix is a 70 mg/ 30 mg and provides excellent vapor.

DABBING concentrates is something that is very popular these day.  You can take a couple of dab hits and be well medicated for a good while.  Dabbing is something that is here to stay and there are a number of different tools that you can use to enjoy yourself. 

The mini dab rig is such a device.  It allows for you to use a small amount of water to allow for a very smooth dab hit.  These mini dabbing rigs are perfect and very portable.  When using concentrates it is not necessary to use a big bong.  It's much easier to use one of these mini dab rigs.  Not much air flow is really needed to do dabs.  The smaller WATERPIPES work very well for dabbing.  The mini dab rig provided for a very smooth and energizing dab intake.

When you go to a smoke shop you should always know the basics about the glass work.  Most stores these days carry imported and American make glass pipes.  If you see something that is very cheap it's because it was made in another country.  We here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP do our best to know our glass blowers.  One of the American make glass companies that we support and sell is SOUR GLASS COMPANY.  They are from San Diego and have been in the smoke shop industry for 20 years.  The company has two master glass blowers who are the primary blowers for most of there glass WATERPIPES.

Model Miss Madison Skye asked us "what's the point of using a bong over a pipe"?  This is a question that I get asked often.  Many times when using a pipe you will get a harsh hit unpleasant hit.  This is common and depends on the style and function of your hand pipe.  So what we advise our customers to do is to buy a good bong.  The bong will allow the smoke to be cooled and filtered before ingestion.  This is the major benefit to using a bong.  You will be able to get a nice smooth robust smoke from a medium sized water pipe.  Generally something between 9- 12 inches is perfect for any daily smoker.

Pandora Blue one of the Most beautiful and talented 420 models asked us a very good question, "What is the best Bong"?  and "what should I be looking for when picking a Bong"?  I explained to her that it's something that is a very personal choice.  The one thing you don't want to do is go cheap.  I see a lot of people trying to take the cheap way out.  This is wrong because a Bong is something that you are going to be using on the daily.  My recommendation is to first look at what you like aside from price.  See which bong fits the size and look .  After you find the bong you like check the price.  By doing this you will get a good idea of what you will need to spend.  When you come here to illusions Vape smoke shop San Diego you can always ask us what we have on special that are similar.  We always have sales on bongs on and you may even get the bong you really want.  You never want to ask for the cheapest bong because ever time you smoke you will be unhappy with your smoke.  Buy the bong that is going to be more comfortable and have the size dimensions you are looking for.  One last thing I would like you all to know is how bongs are priced.  Our bongs here at illusions Vape smoke shop are all made by hand and use the best glass material.  So the bong price depends on the time it takes to make and the material used.   The longer it takes to make and the more material like colors the more it's gonna cost.  I hope that this helps you all pick the perfect bong.

Dabbing Cup

As we all know dabbing is a pretty intense experience and something that we all have to try.  There are a number of methods and all kinds of glassware to use.  My usual preference is a Sour Glass dabbing pipe.  What I have been using is the New sour Glass Mini Bee Dab piece.  Sour Glass in made here in Illusions Vape Smoke Shops home town of San Diego.  These new dab rigs are miniatures and made from black glass.  They have a Bee attached and are so cool.  They are the perfect mini dab piece.  Mine sits about five inches high and has three barrel rings with a bubble on the bottom.  This piece is a 10mm so what I did was add a quartz sour glass dome-less nail..  I also use a titanium domeless, but really like the qwuartz one.  The titanium dome-less does look very nice against the black of the piece.  Although I am in love with this piece I have found another that I think is going to be the standard in the Vape Smoke Shop industry.  The name of this piece is the Dabaccino cup dab piece By Evol Glass.  It looks just like your frappacino cup from Starbucks coffee.  The piece is entirely clear with a glass piece that looks like a straw sticking out of it.  It has a male piece sticking out of the top of the cup that fits  a 10mm female domless nail or Dome.  This Dabaccino Cup sits about 6 inchs and is fast becoming my favorite.  The main reason that I find this Dab piece amazing is that you can see everything  that is going on inside and allow for the smoke to fill the glass.  Then its a quick pull from the "straw" to clear.  Its just as easy if not easier then drinking out of a starbucks cup.

What makes a good rolling paper?
Picking a rolling paper isn't always as easy at it seems. A first time rolling paper customer may be overwhelmed by the large selection that we have here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP. The original go to rolling papers were the orange 1 1/4 pack and cut corner paper by ZIG ZAG. These two papers were the standard 10 years ago. Thing have really changed since those times. The RAW NATURAL UNREFINED ROLLING PAPERS are the new standard in the industry. Although there are still a lot of smoking enthusiast who search out the older companies like RIZZLA, BAMBU, Elements, and OCB.
The RAW NATURAL UNREFINED ROLLING PAPERS have become so popular because of they are a more natural rolling paper. They are an Eco friendly paper line Having organic papers as well. The standard RAW NATURAL UNREFINED ROLLING PAPERS are going to be a non bleached hemp paper. The actual color of the rolling papers is a brown paper bag color. The ORGANIC RAW NATURAL UNREFINED ROLLING PAPERS are the same brown color just bit lighter. The most popular RAW NATURAL UNREFINED ROLLING PAPERS are the 11/4 and the King slims.
There are also a number of Rolling papers with flavor made by juicy jay. We here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP suggest that you try these in at least 3 different flavors.
Hope this helps you a little with picking papers out. Don't forget to add us on social media.

Have you ever wanted to quit smoking.  We here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP have just the thing for you.  What we here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO suggest that you try a VAPORIZER or ELECTRONIC CIGARETTE.  These devices can be purchased here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO for $20 and up.
The basic VAPORIZER for E JUICE is a battery bottom and a atomizer heating element that will carry the E JUICE.  The atomizer is where you fill the E JUICE and has the heating coil inside of it.
Visit our YOUTUBE channel and see our valued Customers Torrance's testimonial on how she quit SMOKING.  She use to smoke a pack a day before getting into fitness and started vaping for health reasons.  After coming into ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP and purchasing a VAPORIZER Torrance tells us that VAPING is much better for her health.  Torrance had tried other many methods to quit smoking like the gum and patch.  Torrance was only able to quit smoking very easily after her purchase at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO   She is still able to get a fixation of smoking without harming other people around her.  I was able to get a great insight from our interview with her on the stuggle of people who smoke.

These are all questions that I ask smokers everyday here at illusions Vape smoke shop.
