Choosing a Nail for Your Dab Rig

on Wed, 01/27/2016 - 20:57

The basic makeup of dab rigs comprises of a glass piece, a nail, and torch lighter. In most cases, you buy your dab rig separate from a lighter. Some people prefer to apply their concentrates with dabbers which are small rods. For a person new to dab rigs, it would be wise to begin with an all-inclusive dab rig.

 

Nail Style’s

Debates exist on the dab nail type that works best. Ideally, the most appropriate nail is the one that easily heats up. Also, it should retain heat for long. The following are popular options for dab rigs;

  • Glass – Borosilicate glass type is strong but works best for bongs as well as pipes but not for dab rigs. Glass rigs break with ease, have a short life span and need frequent replacement. Thus, use of glass rigs becomes expensive. Additionally, heat retention capacity for glass is little.
  • Ceramic – just like glass it breaks easily, holds heat longer than glass but is still not a reliable material.
  • Quartz – nails made from quartz are good and durable compared to glass and ceramic dabs. Also, they cannot easily overheat as quartz cools quickly.
  • Titanium – the majority of dabbers prefer using titanium nails as it is indestructible. It also retains heat but has the risk of overheating to the extent of burning your concentrate. As such, some dabbers opt to use water diffusers to contain the risk of overheating.
  • E-nails – electronic dab rigs are convenient but only a few dabbers consider using them. The best enails are costly when compared to regular nails. Their use eliminates the need for using a torch. At the same time, you can set your desired temperature for better control.

You can easily purchase your nails discreetly through online smoke shops. Just use your credit card or PayPal and it'll arrive at your doorstep. 710 VISIONS and Grass City both offer a variety of different types of nails to choose from and always have great deals too!

Marijuana Testing in Different Industries

on Wed, 01/27/2016 - 00:23

There are several industries where cannabis testing is performed. The results can have dire effects on those who fail these tests and some examples include:

Sports – marijuana has not been exclusively banned from all sports, but the rules are changing. According to several news articles, the Olympics may exclusively list marijuana as one of the illegal substances that are banned in athletes due to its implications on performance which are discussed below.

Some of the authorities that currently perform marijuana testing is the National Collegiate Athletic Association, which periodically updates the threshold and requirements for young athletes enrolled or who are about to be enrolled in athletic programs and scholarships.

The failure to pass a drug test in sports will usually mean that the athlete is banned for a specific or indefinite period of time.

In recent years the public has seen firsthand how former world champions have been stripped of their former glory, reputation, and medals when drugs are detected in their blood. While marijuana as stated, is not banned across the board as with other types of drugs, this may soon change, and critics may declare it as a performance enhancing substance.

Other niches where marijuana is tested include:

The Law – uses Cannabis Science to test defendants in criminal cases that vary from DUI, possession, distribution, or to connect aggravating circumstances of a case. As for offenses like driving under the influence, it’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle while other the influence of marijuana, even if it has been legalized where the driver was arrested. To prove guilt, police officers and a prosecution team will typically conduct THC testing just to prove their suspicions, and this is usually done through blood or urine samples – and through varied methodologies.

Another industry that conducts these testing measures is:

Medicine – patients often undergo several tests just to see the effects of new or old medicines in clinical performance. The benefits of marijuana use have been heating up several medical journals as it proves its pain relieving effects and other uses in chronic cases like cancer and HIV for instance. In fact, some states have legalized marijuana for medical use based on these purposes, and in so doing patient care or ID cards are issued to protect patients, physicians and caregivers from the complications of the law.

Other facts about Marijuana and Testing Detailed

Marijuana testing may be conducted in other niches, but the above are the most popular ways where it’s administered. The marijuana plant has different areas which can be dried for use in getting high or getting pain relief. Some of the effects that marijuana are proven to have is a delayed response time when fast reactions are necessary. A good example is when someone is driving.

While marijuana isn’t credited to increase performance in athletes, it has severe mood altering effects, which many authorities worry is cause for concern when it comes to the public’s health. It’s for these and other reasons that the FDA has yet to approve medical marijuana, and further details can be read on the official site.

Has Weed Gotten More Potent over the Years?

on Wed, 01/27/2016 - 00:18

I am always surprised, when I smoke weed, how easy it is for me to get really really high.  I do not smoke that often.  In fact, I would easily say that I smoke rarely.  That said, the potency of cannabis is really mind numbing, literally. 

I can’t smoke it too often because when I do, I become much more secluded and more reserved.  I would hate to be high all the time because I would barely be able to operate.  I would be walking around and not finding exactly what I wanted and it would be the hell of indecisiveness. 

Nonetheless, lots of people are actually high all of the time.  They love to smoke weed so much that they are probably high more often than they are not high.  It is really crazy to think about that, but that is when you can easily see that weed is also a form of medication. 

People use it as such and it helps them cope and get through life.  I would be surprised if I ever tried to stay high all of the time and I think that I would probably be fired from my job, but that is not to say that it is a bad thing.  In fact, there is a guy that I work with that relies on the potency of marijuana to help him get through his day.  I do not know what his situation is personally, but I assume that he smokes weed for entertainment while at work.

Tommy Chong has become more and more popular over time. Making it big in the cannabis industry has spread his name all over the world.

Marketing his new brand of cannabis in 2016, you can pick up his limited strain in Washington State for now.

Available at certain dispensary shops along Seattle. Soon to branch out to other states across the country.

Tommy Chong has blown up and his image is a staple in the cannabis world. I remember first watching his movies with friends and laughing heartily through the whole film. I continue to follow his journey and can see why so many have grown to adore him.

He began his legacy by first starring in feature comedy films before starting stand up comedy. His jokes mainly consisted of his adventures while high. After launching a glass pipe shipping business, he caught charges related to paraphernalia and wound up in federal prison.
