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

Smoke shop, smoke shop san diego, the best smoke shop, the best vape store, vape storeJoey FierroComment

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.

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.

Best Domeless Titanium Nail

Waxing, has revolutionized the whole smoking experience. Not only is waxing, dabbing or crumble taking over the whole smoking industry so is the utensils used to smoke out of it. There are many types of way tosmoke wax but the new and improved Torpedo Nails which is 4 in onem exclusively sold at Illusions Vape Smoke Shop is the best thing since the invention of the water pipe. The Torpedo Nails 4 in 1, can be used on a female and male water pipe either on a 14 mm or 18 mm. The Torpedo nail is domeless and light enough to get hot the quickest compares to all other domeless nails on the market but also the strongest to hold the heat for about 10 minutes. This nail has changed my prespective on waxing. I used to think it was complicated and useless but when one of my employees at ILLusions Vape Smoke Shop recommeded it to me I am a new person, I suggest you try it!

Just wanted to tell you guys about these mini dab rigs.  They are perfect for the car.  They are fragile and i suggest that youy keep yours in a case.  These mini dab rigs are very difficult to make.  It takes a lot of time and a very steady hand to blow these.  You need one of these.
  The main thing that i like about these dab rigs is how small they are.  What i dont like about them is that they are a bit fragile.  if your out with friends and they drop this piece.  There is a good chance its going to break.  We sell these dab rigs for $50 here at illusions vape smoke shop.

E Juice

By Joey Fierro- December 30, 2014

We just finished a meeting with a vender of e juice, and I noticed a few interesting facts about vaping these days. There are 3 types of vapor gurus. The typical college kids that just want to vaporize, the MOD users that are experts in the field and the people that really want to quit smoking. The vast market of E Juice or E Liquid vendors has intensely grown from 1 to 2 major companies to about 50 to 60 standard companies. There are extremely high quality juice makers like Vapure who have dedicated their experience and knowledge to evolving the vaping experience and taking it to a whole nother level.
