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.

LIT VAPE COMPANY has made a hand made WOODEN BOX MOD VAPORIZER that had been the latest craze.  This  wood grain BOX MOD vapes great with a Arctic Sub Ohm Tank.  This combination of box mod and tank is a great VAPING experiences.

The first generation of these WOODEN BOX MODS had a little problem being to tight for the battery to be shoved in.  So the electronics would sometimes not work properly.  This has been corrected in this second generation LIT BOX MOD'S.

The new generation on Lit Box Mods and products are great.  We have also been using the the light green 2500 batteries and had a positive experience.  The E juice has been very popular also with he new Birdman fruit loops flavor being one of our favorites.  We would recommend that you give Lit Vapes a try.

Do you want to quit smoking?   You can now quit smoking using a electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), personal vaporizer (PV) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS).  
The electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), personal vaporizer (PV) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS) consist of two parts. The  battery bottom and the  heating element that atomizes the E juice.  The heating element (atomizer) is where you fill the E JUICE.
One of our valued customers Torrance's told us how she quit smoking using a electronic cigarette (e-cig or e-cigarette), personal vaporizer (PV) or electronic nicotine delivery system (ENDS).

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.

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.

San Diego is fast becoming one of the countries hottest vaping scenes.  We have a very large population of people who are know enjoying this great invention.  We just did an interview here at our vape smoke shop that aired on television with San Diego's 6 news talking about vaping.  The reporter was asking us how popular vaping has become here in San Diego.  We were fortunate enough to have one of our customers who is a chemist here to help us.  our customer did not understand what the surgeon general was talking about when claiming that vaping was hazardous to your health.  Our customer here at illusions vape smoke shop told the reporter that his doctor suggested he start vaping.  He stated that the cigarette companies will no longer get his money.  I suggest everyone to try vaping.  its here to stay.

Relationships in the vape smoke shop store world | illusions Vape Smoke Shop




While working at Illusions Vape Smoke Shop the past years on and off I have met some extremely interesting people... From professional athletes, to doctors, to CEOs of huge companies, to homless people with deep and amazing stories, basically just all that you can imagine. The stories that the vape Smoke Shop life has brought to my knowledge have at times put me to tears, others have made me upset and others have cracked me up... It depends what kind of customers you get that day and how they positively or negatively affect your life... I have been extremely fortunate to have had the vast majority influence my life in positive ways.... I have learned things no school or teacher could ever teach me. I have seen patients battling with life threatening diseases that the only positive impact they have on their life is that chill moment when they get to come to the Vape smoke shop store, take their time and pick out a nice glass piece, go home and sit on their favorite vape/smoking spot and take that first inhale that takes them away from their physical pain... In my opinion vaping/smoking has benefited a lot more than it has harmed the society. When you are a peaceful vape/smoker not only do you bring so much to the table but you are also able to take so much in. Dabbing has become the new way of making vaping/smoking more efficient and potent. Patients who no longer get the full smoking experience because of theiur pain have resorted to dabbing, when done correctly it is about 125 times stronger than just grinding and smoking your regular blend. I am beyond thankful with our customers who keep coming back to visit and buy  a swisher, huge collectible glass piece, vape because of them we still stand strong in Kearney Mesa and soon in Tijuana, Mexico...

E Juice

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.

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! When you are in the area even if you are not ready to buy a electronic cigarette you should stop in so you could talk to one of our expert so they can explain a little bit better how being able to quit smoking it's easier than ever.

Bubbler VS Water pipe

Joey FierroComment

Joey Fierro


September 24- 2014


In my opinion a water pipe is a lot easier to work with compared to a bubbler for the following reasons: A water pipe consists of 3 pieces ( a vase, a down stem and a bowl) all 3 pieces are removable and exchangable to customize to your own needs. A bubbler is all 3 in 1 blown together, so if you break the downstem, or any part of it you are basically screwed, also bubblers tend to be smaller in size and are good for keeping away from the kids and hiding but if that's not an issue then go with a waterpipe. Bubblers tend to to spit water back because of their petite and reduced size. A bigger investment is required when purchasing a water pipe, but any piece broke can be easily replaced for under $20 and also customized to be turned into a dab piece or vise verse. SO yes, in my humble opinion a bubbler is a luxury and not a need. A bubbler is recommended once the person owns a water pipe, it is more of a secondary item.
