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.

New regulations have kicked in Monday for electronic cigarettes and some tobacco-related products, giving the U.S. Food and Drug Administration greater control over what can be sold and limiting the way retailers interact with customers.



Such restrictions, however, are nothing new to California's owners and operators of "vape bars," where customers gather to smoke e-cigarettes. Two months ago the state launched its own restrictions, including raising the legal age from 18 to 22.



All products that use a device in which a flavored liquid is heated into vaporized so it can be inhaled must now earn government approval. Also, merchants can no longer give free samples to customers, must ask customers for age-verifying identification and cannot claim that their products help smokers quit tobacco, store owners say.

New Tobacco Laws

Joey Fierro1 Comment

The governer of California Jerry Brown, a Democrat, has signed five laws that increase California’s minimum age to buy tobacco from 18 to 21, regulate electronic cigarettes and restrict tobacco use in various other ways.

Here are some things to know about the new tobacco laws

Jerry Brown. 

Jerry Brown. 


The 21-to-buy restriction and rules limiting where people can vape apply to everyone in the state of California except military personnel with an identification card. The bill stalled for six months while veterans’ organizations and Republican lawmakers fought to include the exemption. The new laws take effect on June 9.Tobacco companies have fought for years to restrict sales, which could result in millions of dollars in lost revenue, but they have kept a low profile during the public debate this year. Electronic cigarette companies, which have a growing market, also opposed the legislation. Some activists see e-cigarettes as a path to quit smoking traditional cigarettes and oppose the state’s move to classify vapor paraphernalia as tobacco products. Vaping has helped millions of people across the globe to quit smoking cigarettes, becoming a major threat to the tobacco industries that dominated the market...

Benefits of swapping tobacco for vapor, proven once again !!

Joey FierroComment

A study published on the Nicotine and Tobacco Research Journal [1] found that e-cigarette use may lead to a drop of 21% in smoking associated deaths, and a 20% percent gain in life years in people born in 1997 or after, in comparison to the figures calculated if vaping was not an option.

This research was conducted by top tobacco control experts from the US, Canada and Australia, with the  study’s lead author Dr David Levy, a popular scientist and professor of oncology at Georgetown Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Centerstating, “Our model is consistent with recent evidence that, while e-cigarette use has markedly increased, cigarette smoking among youth and young adults has fallen dramatically”.

He continued by pointing out to the claims made by some scientists that vaping could be a gateway to smoking in young adults, and added that these claims are “overstated”, and that a long as e-cigarettes are used to replace smoking tobacco cigarettes, they have the potential to reduce harm and improve public health. Several other studies on the topic of the dangers of vaping in young adults support Dr. Levy’s statement .

Kylie jenner shared a Snapchat video of herself smoking from a vaporizer pen. but was she getting high? See the video below!

In the video, which was later posted to Instagram by fans, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star can be seen seductively puffing on a vape pen while driving around with a friend. After inhaling and letting the smoke sit in her mouth for a second, the social media queen is then seen showing off her prowess by blowing smoke rings into the air, which we’ll admit, was a tad impressive.

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.

The are hundreds of different wax pens, parts, and tops.  Here at Illusions Vape Smoke Shop we have the best dual coil domes kits on the market.  It is our opinion that the Wulf Mods Dual Coil Titanium Glass Dome Atomizes and  concentrates Tops are the best one. The Wulf Mods Dual Coil Titanium Glass Dome Atomizer Not only has dual coil, but the heating element comes with a cap that screws on and helps avoid any spills or drips. We recommend everyone purchase one of these Wulf Mods Dual Coil Titanium Glass Dome Atomizer with a authentic evod or ego adjustable battery.  The Wulf Mods Dual Coil Titanium Glass Dome Atomizer also has a stronger glass dome, which will help avoid any problems if dropping the pen, which of course it being glass we cannout assure you it will not break.

San Diego smoke shop stores have been changed forever because of the vaping scene.  People who love to smoke are changing over to vaping.  The main reason is that it is much healthier to Vape.  This is currently being under study.  But, what I have personally found is that I feel better from vaping.  I suggest that you all try vaping and see for yourself.  You can visit us here at illusions Vape smoke shop at 4488 convoy at suite f San Diego ca, 92111 or call us at 858-751-0100 if you have any questions.

Vaping is the future of the smoke shop industry and will be here to stay.  Why not use a vaporizer if it cuts down on carcinogens? 

Why not Vape if it cuts down the smell of smoking?  

Why not quit smoking and second hand smoke? 

why not be more healthy? 

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

With that said most customers agree and really start to take a hard look at vaporizers, mods, electronic cigarettes, box mods, and plant vaporizers. Get your now and start your healthy living revolution!

While working here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO I often get asked about which SWISHER SWEETS irecommend.  Below I have given you a review of my thought on these blunts.

Original: Slow burning, original swisher flavor allows you to taste tobacco better.
Green Sweets: Very slow burning, can really taste your product.
Black: Very slow burning, can get harsh at the end
Grape: Classic Favorite. Original grape has much more intense flavor compared to white grape, but not as slow burning. Really taste grape flavor compared to other flavors.
White Grape: Very slow burning, sweet grape flavor, not quite as intense flavor as regular grape.
Blueberry: Great classic, without overwhelming flavor. Good alternative to grape. Slow burning.
Strawberry: Sweet strawberry flavor without being too powerful; burns at normal rate.
Peach: Another one of my favorites because it has such a juicy flavor! If you are looking to really taste you swisher this is a great flavor that really stands out.
Tropical Fusion: Coocoo for coconuts? Then you’ll love this swisher, it has a strong flavor of coconut with other tropical fruits. 
Chocolate: It’s like tasting dessert as you smoke, chocolate swisher is great when you have a taste for something sweet.
Blazing Fire: Perfect for the holiday season. Get the taste of spicy cinnamon as you smoke this blazing fire swisher. If you like red hots or big red gum you’ll love this swisher. Perfectly paired with some hot chocolate.
Artic Ice: Get a smooth icey feel when you smoke this swisher. Taste similar to Winter Fresh gum. If you like any menthol taste this is definitely the swisher for you.
Summer Twist: This tropical fruity swisher will shoot you back to warm sandy beaches and the ease of summer nights. This swisher is one of my personal favorites, although it doesn’t burn particularly slow, I love that the flavor incorporates the sweet taste of mango.
Island Madness: Try the sweet taste of watermelon rum that sends you to paradise with one try. 

So if your if your looking for a SAN DIEGO SMOKE SHOP  to get your SWISHER SWEETS i recommend that you come here to ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO.
