    Selecting a Vaporizer

    People have been sticking some weird stuff in their mouths for millennia, but things have gotten stranger recently. Electronic smoking has taken over. Vaping, if you prefer, has become a common alternative to smoking herb. Members of the cannabis community that use electronic pipes and vapes are growing at a tremendous rate, and the market has been flooded with an equal amount of weed-gadgets.

    There is a lot of bullshit to sift through when looking for the perfect vape. It can be hard to find the thing that does what you want and doesn't look like your sucking on a poorly crafted lightsaber. At the end of the day, you either want a hand-held dab pen or a dry herb vaporizer.

    At 420 Science, we think we've done an excellent job at recognizing the best performing vapes in the industry, stocking them, updating our inventory for what is in demand and carrying updates for older models. Our hope is that we have curated a selection that solves a lot of the decision making for you already.

    Vapes tend to vary on a few sliding scales. The power and battery life of a vape tends to affect its size directly. The faster it heats and the longer you can use it usually mean you'll end up with a large vaporizer like the Mighty, or the CFX. Drag is how slow or easy it is to inhale a hit from a vape. The higher the drag, the longer you have to hit the vape, but the more intense the flavor will be from the vapor.

    Vapes can also have a lot of features. Some more useful than others. Some vapes are simple like the CFC with only a chamber and simple controls to toggle the temperature. Others like the Pax 3, are loaded with LED displays, haptic feedback, apps for customization, and even hidden games and features. It all depends on what you need.

    If you want to have dialed in control over every heat setting of your vape, or you want to be able to swap out mouthpieces or other small parts depending on your taste, then you'll want something like the CFV or the Pax. But if you just want a functional vaporizer that allows you to toke on the go easily and stealthily, then a vape like the DaVinci IQ or the Firefly 2 is right for you.

    Now for those that want to completely have control over the power and delivery of their vapor we recommend a desktop vaporizer. You can't compare anything handheld to the capabilities of a Volcano or a Silver Surfer. You can dial them in at the exact temperature you want, and they have bowls large enough to accommodate a whole party for a session.

    Take a look through our selection, and we're sure you'll find something that will fit your specifications, style, and budget.

    Toking in Nature

    Every toker knows that there is something special about lighting up outside in nature. There's a definite beauty to time spent outside uninhibited by city lights, and smartphone notifications. It just makes being elevated that much better. 

    Many of us take for granted the simple pleasures of taking a stroll through the woods or down by the beach with a loaded spoon or a hefty preroll. Most of the time it is because we get stuck in our routine. We have our normal chill spot at home by the window or in front of the record player, and we're happy to come home to it every day and load a fresh bowl. 

    But consider breaking from your routine sometime and going down the less explored path. Venture to a park or have a sit on a stump somewhere deep in the woods. We spend most of our days with mental blinders on so we can get through our busy days. And once we get home, for many of us, our session time is a way to shrug off the stresses of the day and reflect. But sometimes to really center yourself you need to go on a little adventure. 

    Getting out of your routine smoking environment will help you experience your high differently. You'll be more observant and appreciative and hopefully, more tranquil. Tap into that feeling we all get when wandering around nature as explorers and adventurers.  

    That is when a simple loaded bowl or a pre-rolled cone won't do. Load up your whole kit, or your outdoor pipe. You need to pack your bag, put on your walking shoes, and get out on the trail. It may seem like a bit of effort to get away from things, but once you do you won't regret it. That first puff from your bubbler on top of a mountain trail or overlooking a river is awe inspiring. You'll wonder why you don't do it like this every day.

    Take a stroll through our Outdoor Friendly section to see what inspires you!

    Throwing an Epic 4/20 Party

    Throwing a legendary 4/20 party can be a rewarding and worthwhile endeavor, but there is some essential knowledge that is required to get this herb-filled event going strong. We've put together this guide so that you can plan the perfect occasion for your friends and best buds.

    The necessary planning for a rad 4/20 party is essentially the same as planning a good house party with a few acceptions. One is that people are not drinking as much, they are coming to get blazed, and that changes the dynamic in a few different ways. You'll need to plan accordingly.

    Obviously, the most important element of a fantastic 4/20 party is having plenty of weed for people to toke on. You can handle this a few different ways. If you have the means to provide some amount of bud, then you should, but encouraging people to "BYOW" will give you variety and allow everyone to have some green that they can share and show off. If someone happens to show up empty handed, you should be generous and smoke them out. After all, that's what this holiday is all about!

    So before you can start prepping your place, you'll need to make sure you have some other necessary items. What are you going to smoke out of? If your answer is, everything, then you are learning. Have a selection of ways to enjoy ganja. Roll up some doobies of different shapes, sizes, colors, flavors. Load a few bowls and have a dry pipe ready, a bubbler and a water pipe. If you have a vaporizer, load it up and have it ready to go full blast. If you don't have any of those things, then we suggest you visit the store, we've got all the gear you need.

    You should pick up at least one new piece for people to enjoy. If you are inviting people over that are part of your normal smoking crew then they're not going to be impressed with your same old tube. It's time to step things up. If a new piece is not in the budget, then load yourself up with some papers and make it rain joints.

    Who is coming to this party? Know your list and check it twice. You'll want to make sure that you can keep it to a manageable number. 4/20 parties are not raging house parties; they are chill and creative and best of all positive. Keep that in mind and make sure everyone you invite knows what they are getting themselves into. Make invitations.

    We're big fans of the classic hastily photoshopped party flyer with all the relevant information on it. It's cool because it sets the mood before your event even happens and gives everyone all the important details. You can just drop this image in a text message to your list of 420 friends, and they'll know what the deal is.

    So you have the herb, you have the gear, you've planned a time and invited your friends. Now what? Now it's time to go the extra mile and make sure your 4/20 party is an unstoppable juggernaut of fun time and good memories. There are a few easy extra steps you can take to seal the deal on an excellent 4/20.

    As always set and setting are your greatest allies and enemies for a good party. You'll want to make sure that your place is conducive to getting stoned and chilling out for an extended period. There are a few simple but effective things you can do to make sure any place is great for getting blazed.

    First, make sure that your lighting is right. We can't stress enough how much good lighting goes into making a party environment right. If your apartment is lit up like a doctor's office, then no one is going to feel like they can have a good time. Turn those overhead lights off. Turn the lamps on, put some colored bulbs into a few lights or hang up some Christmas lights somewhere. Your goal is to make it warm, colorful, and inviting.

    Make a playlist. Pick your records, bust out your CD collection or start tuning up your digital library. Whatever you use to listen to music make sure you've taken a few minutes to arrange a library that you feel reflects the celebration. We could mention a ton of classics, but there are too many to list. Be nostalgic, be diverse, and keep it around an hour or two at most. If you have music playing, people will eventually want to put on their tunes. That's okay.

    Activities! Have stuff to do. Don't assume the occasion will be enough to keep everyone entertained. Make different parts of your place into different activities, even if it's just four corners of your room. Have a movie going that everyone knows on mute. It's a conversation piece. There are a ton of stoner movies out there. If you don't like those movies, then play Star Wars. The old Star Wars. Put out some playing cards and board games. Dig out whatever qualifies for art supplies in whatever qualifies for storage in your house and set it all out for people to mess with. If you have an old Nintendo or some other system, for god's sake hook it up. There are few things stoned people love more than playing old Nintendo.

    A word about edibles. Do it. There are a ton of simple or complex medicated treats you can make. Make some brownies at least. Someone may bring some but don't rely on that, and edibles for an event like this can be made lower strength so that people can enjoy them along with everything else. Make sure they are labeled. Also, have normal food. People will get the munchies. Have snacks and put out some veggie friendly stuff. Plan to order pizza. Put pizza rolls on the pizza. It will be amazing, and everyone will think you are some kind of genius.

    Plan for refreshments of all kinds. Drinks are perhaps one of the most unexpectedly hard things to prepare for a 4/20 party because people will be all over the place. Get water, soda, and beer. Some people will drink less alcohol when they are smoking. Some will drink way more water. Some will ask for hibiscus mint tea. It's perfect for dry mouth. You can keep whatever is left.

    If you've followed all or any of these steps you're most certainly on your way to a better 4/20 event. Of course, this is just a guide, the potential for shenanigans and good times to be had is limitless when you mix good people with good herb. Happy 4/20!
