I wanted to talk about torches.. Here at Illusions we have carried many different brands and styles. Which one is your favorite?

Personally I like the scorch torch ones. They seem to be our best seller yet, and i love them! They come in different sizes and different settings, such as ; low-high flame and continueous flame. The quality of them is very nice and they are reasonably priced for how nice they are.

Alot of torches i have used tend to work really good for a little but and then suddenly stop working. Or i will try and refill them and they still won't work. I haven't had that problem with Scorch Torch yet!

 For all you Dabbers out there or even hookah fanatics who use torches to light your coals, try the scorch torch. I would love to hear your guy's input on them, and other torches you like to use.

Recyclers are one of the newest editions to the San Diego smoke shop scene., These waterpipes are making a major impact when it comes to smoking. Some people even say that once they used one of these waterpipes they feel that they will no longer use another pipe.!  These waterpipes are being used primarily for Dabbing. I will let you guys decide for yourself.  The questions most often asked when it comes to recyclers are.  How do they work? What is there purpose? Do they really make that much of a difference? 

Our opinion here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO is that they are great for  dabbing and using wax concentrates.  The water recycles in the waterpipe pulling the smoke with it and makes for a better smoother drag.  This will make a huge differnce when it comes to taking a drag.  It will make your experience much more smoother.

This waterpipe is recommended here at ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP SAN DIEGO for the reasons listed above .  If you have any questions on choosing a waterpipe feel free to contact us at 858-751-0100. Also subscribe To our youtube channel and Instagram @ ILLUSIONS VAPE SMOKE SHOP

One of our valued Customers Torrance shares how she quit smoking.  She use to smoke a pack a day before getting into fitness and started vaping for health reasons.  She feels that vaping is much better for her health.  She was not able to quit smoking using other methods like gum and the patch.  Torrance was able to quit smoking very easy thru vaping.   She was 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 on how to quit smoking.

Is dabbing beneficial?

I have suffered from chronic asthma since I was a young boy . It has been a hard journey when it came to smoking my favorite blend of loose leaf since I truely enjoyed smoking but it was hard for me to smoke and get over the harshness and the coughing that the regular pipe produced, My sister Lorena told me there was a new thing called dabbing which was a sticky yellowish new thing out that was a lot more potent than regular loose leaf. I gave it a try and I felt a feeling of satisfaction and release right away. Not only did I not have to take 6 hits from a water pipe to get the desiring effects of the loose leaf but with one strong hit I had enough. Dabbing has changed the way I view life and my lungs really appreciate it. There is no better way to start my day that with one big dab hit, I function better and do not smell like skunk , like I did before when I smoked all day to get that buzz i needed to make my lung pain go away. I am thankful for whoever invented the tecnique of dabbing. Eventhough, dabbbing is not for everyone it is the easiest way.

Dabbing Cup

As we all know dabbing is a pretty intense experiences 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.  The have a Bee attached and are so cool.  They are the perfect mini dab piece.  Mine sits about five inches high ans 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 in entirely clear with a staw 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.
