Plant matter vapor is visible under the right lighting, it looks and behaves similarly to a very light smoke or mist. It is possible to blow vapor rings, but your vapor from vaporizing will never be thick like the e-juice vapes. Visually, it can be compared to seeing your breath on a cool night, with the exhaled vapor dissipating much more quickly than smoke. If you do not see or taste any vapor, try turning the heat up just a little, wait about 30 seconds and inhale at your standard speed or use a slower inhale. We recommend to keep your standard draw speed and adjust the temperature accordingly to your inhale speed. If you inhale very fast and run a hotter unit, be careful when sharing with other people that may inhale slower than you. This could lead to combustion. Remind them to inhale like you do, or turn your unit down a little for them.

A 7th Floor flavor disc used in a pipe is best used with lighter so you get the lowest temperature possible. Also, to slightly tap the flame on the flavor disc helps with a smoother hit. The lighter is about 600 degrees and you only need to get cannabis to 428 degrees to release all the cannabinoids.

You can use a torch every so often to really burn off the fats and lipids that will gather in the flavor disc from low-temperature dabs. Just remove the flavor disk and put it on a brick or concrete outside. Make sure there is nothing flammable and then burn the disc until it is brand new again.

This is fully debatable. It can be said that a smaller rig can be better for flavor as there is actually less filtering of the smoke of vapor. In our opinion, this comes to personal preference of how big of a rig you like. Filling a very large tube can take time and when you finally carb the piece to let in the smoke or vapor it will slam you, maybe making the flavor hard to taste as you took it big one! A small rig will allow you to take the hit as it comes off of the vape, bowl or nail potentially giving you the best flavor.

Each brand of rolling paper is made differently with different materials such as standard tree pulp, hemp pulp, and rice pulp. There are other kinds of papers our there also. The best way to know what kind of material the paper is made from is to visit their website for that particular paper brand.

Rolling papers really depends on the skill set you have. Using a roller for sure makes rolling easier as well as using a $ bill.

This is a tough question these days. Many years ago there were only a few companies making color and the colors they made were also limited. Today there are many color companies and the colors made are expanding daily it seems. The best way to know what color the glass is made from is to ask the artist. With our crew of glassblowers, we can guess better at the colors used than most.

Filtration on a water pipe does a few things.

Yes it is possible to get the reclaim or resin out of percolators with the right kind of cleaner. It can be harder to clean some percs. There are abrasive cleaners that you can pour into your piece, shake it up, and rinse it out. The grains in the cleaner help to scrape the unwanted materials off. There are other cleaners you can pour into your piece and just let soak then rinse. If one doesn’t work try a different cleaner. Some we recommend are Resinate, Kryptonite, 420 or 710 cleaner.

A hint to get it cleaner is to microwave your cleaner just a little to warm it up. If it is alcohol you are using you will want to only microwave for a short period of time as it gets hot faster than water. Also, DO NOT Breath the alcohol as it is not the same alcohol as what you drink.

There are cleaners made specifically for silicone pipes, we carry Kryptonite Naked!

One can also always get away with alcohol, we recommend 91% over 70%. the 91% is more concentrated and will work better.

One thing to know is silicon is actually porous and can absorb some oils

“Carb” is short for a carburetor. Just like the carburetor in a vehicle, the carb on your pipe or water pipe controls air flow, and therefore the pressure, in a given space. The car hole on a pipe allows the air to come through fast at the end of your hit, mixing the smoke with air slightly to make the hit smoother and more enjoyable.

A carb cap controls the airflow on a nail or banger. It allows the air to flow directly over the oils so that they can vaporizer more efficiently. If there is no carb cap the air can flow slightly over the oils with the fresh air not coming fully into contact with the oils. When the air does not flow over the oils, but slightly above the oils, you will get weak dab hits.

Yes you can put a banger on any piece that has a male or female joint! You just need the proper size banger or nail joint to match your rig.

All you need to make your water pipe into a rig is a nail or banger! If you have a female jointed water pipe you need a male banger. If you have male jointed water pipe you need a female banger. There are three different sizes to choose from so you will need to know the joint size. There are other attachments you can get for dabbing as well like a drop down or reclaim catch. Those help to catch your reclaim instead of it going directly into your piece, which keeps your rig cleaner!

A drop down is a wonderful attachment for smaller dab rigs and water pipes. We highly recommend them even for rigs that are just for the flower. Having the bowl or banger further away makes the experience just a little better. If you do not want a drop down, look at getting a slightly larger rig or water pipe.

Water pipes are just like playing with leggos! Anything that is a water pipe can be a rig and anything that is a dab rig can be a waterpipe you just have to have the right attachments. A piece with a male joint will need either a female banger or bowl. A piece with a female joint will need either a male banger or bowl.

Smaller water pipes are at this time called dab rigs, while larger water filters are called bongs or water pipes.

How a piece is used is more what the user wants to use it for than what the piece is called initially.

The simple answer is because of the black resin that accumulates in the pipe.

People will call a color changing pipe a chameleon pipe because of the way a chameleon lizard changes color. There is also Chameleon glass that was one of the first glass companies in the industry making fumed pipes

A vaporizer is a device used to heat an herbal product gently to a temperature high enough to vaporize or boil the active compounds in the herbal product. The active compounds in cannabis such as THC, CBD, THCv and CBG just to name a few, will be released at temperatures lower than 435 degrees. Ideal vaporizing temperatures range from 290 degrees to 428 degrees. Any temp above the 450 degree threshold will cause burning(smoke not vapor). Vaporizers allow you to enjoy the active compounds without the negative effects of smoking. Smoke contains toxic by-products and only about 20% of the active cannabinoids, vapor contains 95% of the available cannabinoids and 5% of the remaining fragrant plant oils. This makes vaporizing much more effective, healthier and more cost efficient! Vapor is also much cleaner, it does not linger in the air and does not cling to fabrics and clothing. This makes vaporizing less intrusive to the people around you.

There are 2 primary heating methods a vaporizer may use.

There are two categories we divide Vaporizers into. The first is what we refer to as Table-Top devices. This category includes all devices that require you to plug in to an electric source. We also call them home units, made to be used at home. These units are built for longevity and heavy use. Table-Top devices can have 1 of 2 delivery methods, this means how do I get the vapor from the device to my lungs. The first is whip style. This simply means a tube/hose is used, one end attaches to the vaporizer and you would gently draw vapor through the hose. Much like a hookah. The second, uses what are called vapor bag balloons. The device will fill the balloons with vapor, a valve on the balloon allows you to draw only what you need while saving the vapor in the balloon. This is better for people with weaker lungs.

The second is portable devices. These devices have rechargeable batteries to power them and are small and discreet, giving the user the freedom to take the device out in the yard or to different rooms of the house. Some other units use a torch to vaporize.

Convection and conduction are two different ways of heating things. In Vaporizing, both terms refer to how the products (herb or concentrates) are heated in order to reach the evaporation temperature when vaporization begins. Convection means that the herbs are heated with a stream of hot air. Conduction means that the material is heated through contact of a hot surface. Usually it is contact through the heating chamber walls. Conduction vaporizers have a quicker heat up time and produce greater amounts of vapor. They require constant stirring to make sure all of the product gets heated evenly. Conduction vapes may combust (burn) the product. Combustion has negative impact on the flavor and can cause the vapor to be harsh. The chances of combustion are almost zero in a convection style vaporizer, as there is no direct contact. Hot air passes through the material and heats it evenly so there is minimal need to shake or stir your products. They tend to be more expensive due to the complicated heating system and amount of parts. They are not as easy to use as a conduction style vaporizer. Hybrid devices are a mix of conduction and convection heating. They take what’s best from both the two worlds and combine it into one vaporizer. The products are heated both by hot air and the walls of the heating chamber. Hybrids provide a lot of vapor from the very beginning of inhalation (like all conduction vaporizers) and the active substances are released from the herbs or concentrates as effectively as in a convection style vape.

This hole allows the air to go directly over the oils. Without air going over the oils the concentrates will not vaporizer well, or may not vaporizer at all. Without the carb cap the air goes over the oils and does not fully hit the oils to allow them to vaporize.

With the carb cap on top of a banger the hole also allows the user to breathe. With out the hole the rig, banger and carb cap would be blocked.

This is used to get the smoke out. With cannabis smoke, the user does not want it to get stale. It allows the smoke to go into your lungs more easily after you have filled the pipe. Smoke is hot, and when you fill the pipe without a carb the smoke would be harsher on your throat. As you let go of the carb it lets air in easily, mixing with the smoke to make a cooler, smoother hit

Vape Mods:

an electronic cigarette device that either contains an internal battery or has housing space for an external battery. They come in two primary forms: regulated and unregulated.

What is an Atomizer or Coil?

An atomizer is defined as any device that creates mist out of the liquid. It is essentially just a heating coil made from a piece of resistance wire that heats up in order to create vapor out of E-liquid. Atomizers are also referred to as coils. They come in a variety of styles ranging from disposable coil heads to the do-it-yourself coil builds. Pre-made disposable coils are referred to as coil heads. Coil heads are specifically designed for a particular tank or device. Do-it-yourself builds require a little more knowledge on vaping(not for beginners). They are small pieces of resistance wire that is made into a coil shape resembling a spring. The type of wire used, the diameter of the coil and the number of wraps will affect the coils resistance. They are commonly made with Kanthal and NiChrome and more recently Nickel and are considered to be the safest to use for vaping. Coils are measured in ohms, based on the amount of resistance they have. The lower the ohms, the more power they will demand. The resistance of an atomizer is the amount of heat produced by the coil based on battery voltage. Different coils or coil heads give off different amounts of resistance.

How to Change an Atomizer Coil:

The coil in a mod should be changed every 1-4 weeks of usage. A general estimate is about 2 or 3 weeks, you should monitor the taste of the vapor and color of the wick material. If you are getting a burnt or nasty taste your coil is most likely burnt out. To check it further you can look at the wick material(exposed cotton on coil) to see if it’s still a light color. If it’s a dirty grey or dark black it’s likely time to change.

How to Prime an Atomizer Coil:

The first few puffs with a new atomizer can have a burnt and unpleasant taste to it. To minimize this problem, priming your atomizer coil is a good idea. Priming simply means saturating the dry wick material with e-liquid so that when the device is activated, it vaporizes the e-liquid rather than burning the wick material.

What is an RDA?

What is an RTA?

RTA stands for Rebuildable Tank Atomizer. It is essentially an RDA combined with a Sub-ohm tank. From the outside it looks very much like a sub-ohm tank but the inside is where it’s different. You have a build deck onto which you build your own coils. Once that is done, wick your coils, saturate the cotton with e-liquid, and you’re good to vape. It lets you build your own coils but also has the benefit of filling a tank instead of dripping every few hits.

RBA stands for ReBuildable Atomizers. RTA’s and RDA’s are both a type of RBA.

What is a Sub-ohm Tank?

How to fill a tank:

There are two styles of tanks, bottom fill and top fill. Top fill tanks are a lot easier to fill and make less of a mess compared to bottom fill tanks.

Bottom Fill-

Top Fill-

Batteries:

How Does a Battery Work?

A battery is made up of stacked “cells”. Each cell has a negative terminal and a positive terminal immersed in an electrolyte solution. When you put your battery in a circuit, an interaction between chemicals occurs. This causes positively and negatively charged ions in an electrolyte solution to want to move to a terminal on each side of the cell known as an “anode” (negative terminal) and a “cathode” (positive terminal). This movement of ions allows energy to flow to an external device, powering it. When you charge a battery, you reverse the chemical reaction used to discharge the cell, literally resetting the ions back to the way they were. A little is lost in the process of resetting each time. Eventually, the chemical reaction will no longer occur.

Chargers and Charging Batteries:

The first time charging a new set of batteries you should drain the battery and then charge it fully. Most if not all mods have a USB charging port. DO NOT CHARGE BATTERIES THROUGH THE USB PORT IF IT HAS AN EXTERNAL BATTERY/BATTERIES! If the battery is internal the USB port is the only option of charging the device. If the mod uses more than one external battery and you charge it through the USB port it will unevenly charge your batteries(not good). Use an external charger(unless it has an internal battery). You remove the battery/batteries and put them in a separate charging unit. Make sure to keep an eye on your batteries while they charge, you don’t want to leave them on longer than they have to be. Of the several chargers available the best and safest chargers are “smart chargers”. They typically have multiple charging modes, safety features like over voltage protection, and over discharge protection. It is important not to overcharge your batteries above 4.25V or over discharge your batteries. Although most batteries for vaping can be discharged down to 2.8V or until they fail. For safety reasons it is never recommended to discharge them below 3.2V.

Why do mods short out? How do you fix it?

If the mod says short or check atomizer it is telling you there is an electrical short occurring. When this happens, the built-in protection circuit on a regulated mod will kick in and stop you from vaping. Most of the time, the short occurs between the coil and tank and it is nothing to do with the battery or anything else. A short can happen because of a dirty 510 connection, things such as dust or leaking e-liquid can get in the way of the connection. It makes it hard for the mod to communicate with the coil inside the tank. Check and clean your connection first. If you are still experiencing issues after check the connection, take the coil out and clean out the bottom metal piece before screwing your coil back in. The short may have occurred because the coil was not set right. If that does not work your coil may be bad, if you have another try the new coil. Occasionally you can get a bad coil. If you are still getting a short message, then try the tank with another mod.The tanks inside could be worn out causing problems. That way you can distinguish if the tank is now the problem or the mod itself.

E-Liquid:

E-liquid is the fluid that fuels the Electronic Cigarette or Mod. It is what provides the nicotine solution and the flavoring to your mod. It creates vapor in which you exhale that mimics the traditional smoke from cigarettes. Some juices contain nicotine and others do not. E-liquid normally comes in 6 different strengths, none(0mg Nicotine), Extra light(3mg Nicotine), Light(6mg Nicotine), Regular(12mg or 18mg Nicotine), and High(24mg Nicotine). It uses base ingredients to create a smooth flavor. The base can consist of PG(propylene glycol), VG(vegetable glycerin) or both. Most E-liquids have mixes containing 50% VG/PG 50% to 70% VG/PG 30% or “max VG”. PG and VG are combined with natural or artificial flavors to create unique recipes. Propylene Glycol is used as a flavoring carrier in food products. It is non toxic and combined with a VG blend makes a very smooth vape compared to a 100% PG base. The more PG you have in a blend the thinner your juice will be, this is better for smaller tanks(ego pens or 510 battery vape pens). Vegetable Glycerin is a sweet, thick, vegetable based liquid. 100% VG base is very thick and hard to smoke effectively. It is non toxic. The more VG you have in a blend the thicker your juice will be and that creates a thicker vape cloud, better for larger vapes(SMOK). If you get E-liquid that contains nicotine on your skin it is best to wash your hands as soon as possible, the nicotine can absorb.

Mod Safety tips:

Vaping Laws:

Although E-Cigarettes or Mods do not contain tobacco, judges ruled in 2010 that vape products are considered tobacco products. Because the FDA now has jurisdiction over tobacco products, mod products are to remain on the market after August 2018 they will have to be in compliance with or in process of complying with the PMTA requirements. Bottles of E-liquid must be labeled and must have the risk claim, free sample ban, age restriction, photo ID check, and you can not put together the customer’s device or install coils. You are not allowed to say they are healthier than cigarettes. No in house juices are to be made, they all have to be created in a certified clean room and be approved by the FDA.

KAVA

Kava (Latin name Piper Methysticum) is a beverage or extract made from a plant species belonging to the pepper family. This plant is native to the western Pacific islands, mainly Fiji, Tonga, and Hawaii. The plant is known as Asava Pepper or Intoxicating Pepper, it can grow to an average height of six feet. It has heart shaped leaves that stretch to ten inches wide. The best way to consume kava is by drinking it. The traditional beverage is made by steeping kava, either fresh or ground into a dried powder, into room temperature water in order to extract its active components. The drink has to be shaken or stirred before it is consumed. It is a beverage and should be consumed that way. Extracts, pills, capsules, alcoholic solutions should not be considered kava. It’s like if you put caffeine in a pill, you cannot call it coffee, just like dried raisins in a capsule are not wine. Kava is legal in the United States and most other countries. There are even Kava bars you can go to, to try it. For centuries, Pacific Islanders have used kava as a medicinal plant because of its sedative, anesthetic, euphoriant, and psychotropic properties. This herb has been used to treat migraines, insomnia, infections , rheumatism, and anxiety. In some cultures it is used for religious and cultural traditions, including weddings, political events, funerals, and royal events. Studies have shown that kava can effectively ease anxiety, relieve stress, and relax muscle and nervous tension, as well as combat insomnia and improve sleep conditions. Kavalactones are the active ingredient in kava, there are six major kavalactones in kava. They pass through the bloodstream when absorbed, causing the plant to act as a muscle relaxant. Kavain is just one kavalactone that is concentrated mostly in the roots of the plant. Its responsible for the feeling of relaxation. Although kava has sedative like properties, its not an actual sedative. Kavalactones don’t affect or work with the brain directly. The mild euphoric feeling comes from desmethoxyyangonin, another major kavalactone. It boosts your dopamine levels, this is why when you drink kava, there is no alteration of your perception of reality. Generally there is no side effects when drinking Kava in moderation. It’s just like coffee, if you drink to much you can have negative side effects. Studies have shown if taken enough it can cause liver issues. There still isn’t enough information about kava, research is still needing to be done.

The leaves of kratom have been used as a stimulant in low doses, a sedative in large doses, an anti-diarrheal and painkiller. It is said that Kratom affects the human brain similarly to an opiate although there is no conclusive clinical data proving how the alkaloids work in relation to the human brain.

As a stimulant, used in low to moderate doses, the individual will experience an analgesic effect along with physical energy, alertness, increased libido, euphoria, sociability, improved mindset or mood, focus and overall improved demeanor. In some cases when taken in large doses, an individual may experience edginess similar to being over-caffeinated.

An a sedative, used in higher doses, an individual will experience an analgesic effect along with euphoria, a lower sensitivity to pain, both physically and emotionally, relaxation, anti-depression and anti-anxiety. Used in excess, it may result in a prolonged sleep.

Knowing glass terms is a vital part to being able to sell glass to customers at Elev8. We pride ourselves in the ability to know more than other head shops, and the only way to do that is to learn the terms. There are so many terms and techniques we find it best for you to visit the Elev8 Premier website as they have them all.

Elev8 Premier Terms and Techniques
A water pipe and a dab rig are essentially the same things. A dab rig gets its name because it is mainly used for dabbing, but can also be used for flower smoking or vaping. So a dab rig is also a flower rig or vape rig. Same as a water pipe when used for dabs or vaping then becomes a dab rig or vape rig. Many dab rigs are not very big so to keep the volume down so you get a more direct hit without the vapor sitting in the tube length.
Yes, a dab rig is a water pipe and can be used for flower or vaping.

This is done by bending the hands-free attachment more straight or less straight. We do have two hands-free attachment sizes. One is for the Silver Surfer and one is for the Super Surfer. However, the super hands-free attachment will work on the Silver Surfer when you use the new spherical FlavorDisc wand.
The setting can be found here , this is probably what you are looking at and is the correct information. The first settings intentionally don't do a whole lot as they are just too low allow any cannabinoids to vaporize.

This happens over time with dab straws that are made of borosilicate. This can be solved by getting a solid quartz dab straw or a dab straw that is made of borosilicate but has a ground joint. Then you will be able to put on a quartz tip to avoid any heat stress. Another good thing about a dab straw that has a ground joint is you can get one really dope and never worry about the tip breaking as they are two different parts.
You can use any torch you like on the Elev8R, but we recommend a torch larger than a pocket torch. Please check out our torches page for a full list.
The easiest way we have found to get this off is with a razor blade. First, make sure your piece is cold. Then scrap the burned goo off. If it is in crevices you may need to use a pick or something smaller, the tip of a reason can get in there also sometimes. A solution to not have this happen again is to have a silicon dab mat. To place the Elev8R or dab straw on. You can also use a torch to burn off any of the burned goo. Do this outside as it will give off fumes of the plastic. This is a great way to clean it, just be careful it gets really hot.
Your dab straw turns black or really dark brown because of the burned or singed oils. Many times you have no way of knowing what the temperature of the dab straw is so more than likely it is a bit too hot. Then when you put it in the oils or waxes the oils will burn dark. The Elev8R, on the other hand, is vaporizing the oils with convection heat. The Elev8R heater also does not come into contact with the concentrates so they are not burning. After a time the unvaped fats and lipids will start to collect under the FlavorDisc. We recommend burning or soaking the FlavorDisc in alcohol after every 3-6 dabs, depending on how big you go.
The reason dab straws tend to hurt your throat is because many times the dab straw is heated too hot and is also vaporizing the fats and lipids. From our research, we have found that above 500 degrees tends to be too much with the perfect temperature being around 430-450
The Silver Surfer is a great addition to a dab rig. A dab rig is more the piece of glass. The great thing about the Silver Surfer is it can vaporizer both flower and concentrates while also being able to be connected to any rig.
The air does travel through metal so to completely avoid metal with our products may not be fully attainable. You can, however, use a wand that has a glass screen to eliminate a metal screen. The air that comes in is cool and passes through the housing and past some metal, although this is at a lower temperature.
The best way to see how this works is going to the product page (link). The first 3 modes are light color up and then back down. This mode has the options at 5 seconds, 10 seconds, and 20 seconds to go up and then back down. The next mode is the same 5, 10 or 20-second options, but this time the lights fade from one color to the next. After that, the lights are just set colors. You use the knob on the left to select the colors. Press the knob to turn the lights on or off.
We have not seen any peeling or anything. Maybe you are referring to what happens to the heater when left in alcohol for long periods of time. Sometimes a white film gets on the heater housing. This is we think to do to a reaction from the metal, concentrates, and alcohol. After it comes out of the alcohol and this happens you can rub it with a cloth or paper towel to clean off that white residue.
The best way is to remove the heater cover from your Silver Surfer after it has cooled down. Then take a razor blade and scrape it until it is clean. Replace the heater cover and you should be good to go.
There could be 2 reasons for this.1 is that the heater cracked and broke.2Nd is that the heater is not fully screwed in. If you feel it is tight let's look at why maybe the heater broke. The heater can burn out for a few reasons. First, if you use a mod and take the heater past 10 watts or 3.7 volts it could get too hot and crack the ceramic. You can run the heater above 10 watts or 3.7 volts, but you do this at your own risk. You need to have enough concentrates to have them over the heater. If the oils are too low and under the heater too cool, and the heater will get too hot, sadly cracking the ceramic and burning out the heater. Do not ever use dry herbs or hash in your Wax Maxer vape pen.
Right now we only have the buckets that are with the Wax Maxer vape pens. We can get you one if you lose it, just let us know. We will take it from a new one and then get one from our supplier.
This is best done with a pick that came with your SideKick. If it is used, the tube with vortex cooler will be easy to get out, just push down with your pick and the tube and cooler will come out. The other tube is a little more tricky. You will want to remove your mouthpiece and then you will push your pick in and you will find an edge. This is done by feel. Once you find that you will push and the tube will come out. We will work on a video for this to help.
The fan on the Super Surfer will be able to cool the unit down much faster than just turning it off. If you want you can use the fan also to preheat a FlavorDisc. Once you see vapor coming out, then put your bag valve up to the bag bowl.
You can vape hash out of the Silver Surfer, Super Surfer, Da Buddha in your wand. Note to have a little herb under the hash works out well. The screen will clog up fairly fast, but inhale and get big hits, then remove any hash after you have gotten a good amount of hits. Then when your screen feels clogged with no herb, inhales slow and enjoy the essence. Do this a few times, then take your pick and scrap the screen, blow hard and your screen will be clean again.
This does not work well, and we suggest to mix with just a little flower in the standard wand you use for your vaporizer.
This is not going to ruin your unit. Try to get out all the oil and waxes you can with a tidy tip or q-tip. Then turn the unit on and burn off any oils. Feel free to inhale these oils.
We recommend to clean the bowl out after each use along with the top of the chamber. Also, brush your screen on the top and bottom of it to remove any debris. We recommend cleaning out the vortex cooler after about 10 uses or if it becomes harder to inhale. A nice deep clean is nice also after about 20 bowls. Just keeps it all fresh
Any items we sell as customizable, such as our grinders, can be sent back for customization. Your unit needs to be clean and free of dirt. We can engrave grinders, sidekicks, pax or mods or most things with a finish.
Depending on your reach we can for sure help out with promo items. We like to work with people but require they know about tour products and how they work. We also have a collaboration page you can sign up at.
This is actually one of our most favorite ways to use concentrates. Mixing in just a little concentrate is a perfect enhancer to your flower so you still get the full spectrum and the entourage effect. We suggest about a standard bowls worth that you are custom to of herb. Then add just a dab of concentrates to your flower and then begin to vape. After a hit, you will see the oils have melted into the herbs. We find this easy to clean out later compared to any other way we have tried to do concentrates in a vape.
We do not recommend putting the aroma top on the dishwasher as it should only be heated and cooled slowly.
Yes we do, they can be found by doing a search for Silver Surfer knob, or you can see more here
The Elev8R heater is made on a 19mm or actually 18mm joint.
Lampworking is another term used for glassblowing. Lampworking is more what a glassblower does when they work on a torch. You can learn more about lampworking by clicking here .
When you take your first hit from a dry herb vaporizer that works from convection you will get a small hit the first time. This is due to the fact that the herb needs to get to around 400 if not 430 degrees in order to have the oil vaporizer from the herbs. When you take your first hit the herb is at room temperature and must be raised from around 80 all the way up to 400. After your first hit your herb might be around 300 so it reaches it vaping temperature much sooner. If you take a break and let your herb cool down to room temperature you will get a smaller hit when you go to vape again. Again, your next hit will be larger. Always remember this up and down is standard for a whip style vaporizer and you will usually run your vaporizer at a slightly higher temperature than when you fill a bag. Always turn your unit down in temperature if you are going from a whip to a bag.
Many terpenes start to boil or vaporizer from the herb at a lower temperature than when some of the other cannabinoids tend to vaporize off of the herb. You can learn more about the temperatures that the terpenes and cannabinoids vaporizer at the art of vaporizing https://www.elev8presents.com/the-art-of-vaporizing/ .
This can happen as your Volcano vaporizer uses a pump to fill the bag. This is good in that it can fill a bag that has resistance from the herb being packed too tight. But the problem of the bag popping can happen if you walk away from your vaporizer and do not turn it off. The Super Surfer, on the other hand, uses a fan to fill the bag more quietly than the Volcano. With the fan having less force than a pump your bag will not pop when filled all the way. The Super Surfer actually will stop vaporizing as the air will be blocked from the pressure of the bag is full.
Yes, the bag from a Super Surfer or other vapes can be run through a water pipe, rig or bong. All you have to do is insert the valve wand into the rig. Sometimes you will need an adapter to go from a 19mm male that is standard for your bag valve to a different size like a 14mm male which is becoming standard in many rigs when they are made with a 14mm female joint.
Really the best temperature for the SideKick depends on what you like. You can find what the settings mean by going to the product page and looking in the description. We feel starting at about 6-6.5 will give some really great flavor with small micro hits. If you want larger hits and a more roasted flavor we suggest 7-8. If you want bigger hits you will want to run your unit at about 8. Our personal favorite is to start at about 6.5 then turn it up every little bit until you reach the setting 8.
The bags for the Silver Surfer, Super Surfer and Da Buddha are made out of hempster. It is a combination of both polyester and hemp. The SideKick bag is made from chambray. Dime bags storage bags were born from the Silver Surfer bag as the Silver Surfer bag was the first bag in the industry to use this hempster fabric.
Yes you can use your Wax Maxer vape pen top with your mod as long as you can turn the wattage down to 10 watts. If you run your Wax Maxer over 10 watts you risk burning out your heater as it can get too hot if you do not have enough oils in the pen. Your Wax Maxer vape top will work with any 510 thread.

We do not suggest using a FlavorDisc in your SideKick. While it can be done if used properly we find it best not to use one. If you do use one you will need to clean out the disc every 2-3 dab loads. If you do not clean out the disc you run the risk of collecting too much oil that will not vape and have it run into the unit. If you have too many oils that run into the SideKick it can stop the buttons from working.

Tidy tips are great for keeping your banger clean, cleaning out those difficult spots in the car, or especially for that eye makeup. With the tight weave of the cotton, it is able to absorb well without falling apart, and the tip is great for getting into those tight to reach spots. A q-tip is still better for cleaning your ears as it is softer. The Tidy Tip will help keep all your things tidy.
Yes the whip on the site is the full set. All of our whips can be found here.
No, the Silver Surfer and Super Surfer are compatible with spherical ground glass
Yes, all of the Elev8R's now come with the quartz heater. You can still buy a borosilicate heater at a very affordable price.
There are a ton of reason what makes glass cost what it does.1. The country of origin plays a big role in the end cost of glass.2. The name of the artist that makes the glass plays a large role in the cost of the glass. Typically a blower that has been making glass for a very long time and has perfected his or her skills will charge more. This is because the work is much cleaner than a garage blower.3. Does the USA artist pay their taxes or do they blow glass underground? This makes a big impact on the cost of glass. If the blower is a garage blower they are typically not paying their taxes that you and I have to pay. We do not carry glass made by garage blowers as they do not typically pay income tax, social security tax or Medicare tax, nor do they have workman's comp insurance, building insurance or any insurance. The typical garage blower is also usually blowing in an unsafe area.
Most all quartz is originated from China or the Czech Republic. The final glass is then welded, cut and finished in the USA. We have searched and searched for an American quartz manufacturer and have come up short time and time again. What makes quartz good is if it was made from high quality. There are many qualities from China and the Czech Republic. One thing we have noticed is most all the new designs originate in the USA and are then copied in China. Even some of the big boys are now getting their quartz from China and saying they make it. We will always let you know where our glass originated from.
Cadmium is dangerous. If it is ingested it is very bad for you. The cadmium in the glass that is used in this industry is really fairly safe. When the glass is originally made it does a lot of off-gassing and the air is exhausted through a very well ventilated area. Once the glass is made the glass is fairly safe to work in the flame and is really pretty safe in the cool state. Even when a piece of boro cadmium glass is used in a banger it is pretty safe. The glass does not get hot enough to turn molten so the cadmium is still in the glass. Many of the new bangers that use a piece of cadmium glass in it have the boro cadmium sealed away from coming in contact with the outside air
In the glass world there are basically 3 types of glass. Soft glass (soda lime), borosilicate and quartz. To learn more about these types of glass visit our glass blowing terms . Look at fused quartz when looking for quartz.
The softening point of type pyrex is 820°c (1,510°f). Borosilicate glass is less dense (about 2.23 g/cm3) than typical soda-lime glass due to the low atomic mass of boron. To learn more about the characteristics of different glass visit our glass blowing terms .
CBD is used for your endocannabinoid system. You can learn more about all the cannabinoids at the art of vaporizing . No euphoric effect(high) treats seizure disorders in children and others not seeking the high, can be used to lower blood sugar.
The all-glass option of the Elev8R has a glass screen in the wand and rig attachment. The heater still must use a screen for thermal properties so your herb does not burn.

We loved the name hemp so we made a store name that was made from hemp. Higher elevations masterpiece productions are what it ended up being. Maybe that is Elev8 first was born??
Some call this dot tech, but really it is just a form of implosion. Some call it to bubble implosion as you put all the dots on a large thin bubble.
No, each store is independently owned and operated. They all work together along with working with the website. As a group, we can Elev8 more than individually. If you do not see the glass in one shop, but want to see what is at the other the website is a great place to see the overall spread of glass at both brick and mortar locations.
7th Floor has made over 300,000 combined units of the Silver Surfer, Super Surfer, and Da Buddha vaporizers.
The name Elev8 came from a culmination of things. The first thing that it means is to live life at a higher standard. Another meaning to us is that elev8ing your life is a journey and to continue to improve is how we feel the human race should live. Another reason is we are at a higher elevation. The idea first was born for the glass crew to identify themselves. With the expansion of how we get our glass and how the world works Elev8 became Elev8 Glass and Elev8 Premier. Elev8 Glass is our foreign line mixed with USA glass, while our American made glass is Elev8 Premier. Elev8 Glass Gallery is where we sell all our glass goods along with all our meticulously curated products designed to Elev8 your mind.
New ideas come to fruition with the need to solve problems. When a problem arises we work to make a product that will help with that problem. The first thing we strive for is the function must be on point. This is the main purpose of fo designing. The next thing we take into consideration is the look and feel of the product.
The journey of the Silver Surfer started in 2004. There were other desktop vapes out there but they were inferior so we came up with the Silver Surfer. It was the first vaporizer in the industry to use a ceramic heater. It was also the first vaporizer that allowed the user to vape and diffuses at the same time. Only the Silver Surfer and Super Surfer have evolved with the industry.
People tend to like the Puffco Peak because of the hype surrounding it. The Puffco Peak is good in that it combines a water attachment with an atomizer. However, the Puffco Peak only works with concentrate making vaporizers which can do both herbs and concentrates like the Silver Surfer far superior. Also, the Puffco Peak only works with the glass designed for it. Products like the Silver Surfer can be hooked up to any of your favorite dab rigs.
We are in the works for this as we speak. The Puffco Peak is all the hype right now and we will make any product cooler with Elev8 Glass and by meticulously curating the proper goods to Elev8 the products we sell.
By today's standards a vape pen and a mod are vaporizers. Technically they are atomizers that atomize the oils and ejuice essentially vaporizing the oils. This is almost the same thing as vaporizing so for lamen terms they are the same. A true vaporizer uses the proper heat to get the oils to the proper temperature that they beginning to boil off of the plant matter or concentrate and turn to vapor. Atomizers heat the oils and ejuice to a slightly higher temperature so that they make big clouds. If the pen is for just concentrates it is usually heating up so much the fats and lipids also vaporize.
This is not true. THC is not water-soluble so it cannot get lost in the water pipe. Some cooling of the smoke or vapor does happen, and when that happens some of the cannabinoids condense and stick to the water or glass. This does make the hit slightly smaller, but the coolness of the smoke or vapor is so much better for the lungs that its worth it to sacrifice just a little to be kinder to your body. One thing to note is that smaller hits are actually way more efficient as your lungs can more readily absorb more of the vapor. We like to say mass micro hits are the way to go for efficiency and being kind to your body. You only get one.
This is called bioavailability and you can learn a lot here .
Silver Surfer 3 years, Da Buddha 3 years, Super Surfer 2 years, SideKick 1 year, Wax Maxer Vape Pen is 90 days, Pro Trim Elite Scissors is 1 year.
Yes, the 19mm sick clip will work for that. It may get hot because it is right next to the heat source, but that clip will hold the two pieces of glass together. You may also find it is very hard to put this on and off. We suggest a Silver Surfer if you want your glass to lock.
Please reach out to us with your order number so we could look you up. We will do some research to confirm and replace any piece you ordered and didn't receive. You can reach us at customercare@elev8distribution.com
Many of the items in a head shop are for your headspace. Not necessarily to put on your head, but to expand your mind. The glass in a head shop is so artistic, it can make your mind wander. The goods in the store are many times used for cannabis and cannabis is used many times to Elev8 your mind. A head shop is much like a little Alice in Wonderland where you can gaze for days.
This really depends on your method of how you want to use a nail. Refer to our blog for heating methods. The average time to heat a titanium banger is about 20 seconds. If you get it red hot, it's too hot, let it cool. The best way to figure it out is put in some dabs cold. Then heat it until you see the concentrates start to melt. Once they melt add about 5 more seconds and that is a close time to heat up the titanium banger.
Refer to our blog here
This really comes down to you. As a glass company we love glass, and for bangers, we prefer the quartz. All people are different and we have heard why they like what they like and it all makes sense. If you talk about durability, titanium has it won. You can drop it, heat it and cool it crazy and it will not break. From all the dabs we have done and from the people, we talk with the majority say quartz is best for flavor. If you love flavor like we do look into a vaporizer like the Silver Surfer as you will get some of the best flavors ever at the right temperature.
To fill or use your butane torch we recommend checking out this blog . Always fill your torch upside down and always do this outside. When you are done with your torch make sure 100% you have turned it all the way off.
The tubing for the 7th Floor Vaporizers are made from a food grade vinyl tubing made in the USA to a specific durometer that allows the tubing to be softer than the standard tubing you would find at home depot. The tubing can reach temperatures of 250 safely. Way below the temperature that the tubing will ever get by vaping.
Rubber tubing smells bad and gives a taste that is less pleasurable, and is not available in a food-grade variant.
Changing you screen or keeping it clean really makes the vaporizing experience much better than a clogged screen. We suggest changing your screen ever 10-15 bowls, or when you notice your wand becoming clogged. You may have to clean or change it more often if you are vaping hash, keif or some really really good dank. You can see how to best change your screen here . Remember the best way is to flip that screen when it is in there.
Eventually all things will fail, the good news is the 7th Floor line of vapes have been known to run 10+ years. If your vape does fail, contact us up at customercare@elev8distribution.com to get it fixed up. The cost of repair is generally around $25-$35 not including shipping. Many of the parts are easy to fix yourself with some standard tools.
Your 7th Floor Vaporizer like the Silver Surfer, Super Surfer or Da Buddha has been designed to run al day. Yes, 24/7 as it also is a wax melt warmer.
Better flavor than smoking, more efficient than smoking, less smell than smoking. You can learn more here .
It takes about 3 days to make a Silver or Super Surfer Vaporizer. This has to do with waiting for the weld to set. From start to finish it takes about 3 hours of time to produce one from scratch.
The batteries last 3+ full uses in the SideKick. Keeping one set in the charger will ensure a continued run time
On average the battery that comes with the Wax Maxer will last a few days with constant use. When using the mod you can expect the battery to last nearly a week with standard use when operating at about 10 watts.
Yes you can use your Silver and Super Surfer as well as the Da Buddha for vaporizing when using the whip if you also have the aroma top on.
Dabbing when done right is not bad. What is bad is when someone does a dab that is too hot. When a hot dab is inhaled you are also inhaling the fats and lipids. These can hurt the lungs and actually have been known to cause lipid pneumonia.
Air trap and bubble trap are the same things. Alien Skin is a form of bubble trap. You can learn more here
The simple answer is yes. The full answer is wig wags are the start of a switchball. A switchball is what is made after you wig wag lined colored tubing. A reversal is another name for switchball.
The journey of the SSV started in 2004. There were other desktop vapes out there but they were inferior so we came up with the Silver Surfer. It was the first vaporizer in the industry to use a ceramic heater. It was also the first vaporizer that allowed the user to vape and diffuses at the same time. Only the SSV and SUP have evolved with the industry.
With the Aroma Top for the SSV, SUP, and DBV you can use any wax melt or essential oil you like. DO NOT EVER put in cold oils into a hot dish, it will crack. We recommend if you use essential or fragrance oils to keep a little wax in the aroma top so that you can just drop the oils into the wax. The wax will prevent cold oil from hitting the hot glass.

The batteries will read 4.2 volts after fully charged. They should power the unit on and bring the unit up to the desired temperature. If the batteries don't read 4.2 volts when fully charged, the batteries might be getting weaker and may need to be replaced. If the batteries show no voltage and won't charge, they may need to be jump started (video below) with a fully charged battery showing 4.2 volts. If the batteries will turn the SideKick on but shut off when the unit starts to heat up, the batteries aren't pushing the energy through the battery, and the battery needs to be replaced. If the unit will not turn on at all with any set of batteries and the batteries all show 4.2 volts, we may need to continue to troubleshoot to resolve the issue.

The easiest way to remove sharpie is to use another sharpie to replace the old sharpie writing, then wipe the fresh sharpie away with a paper towel.
