  • Bloomberg: NY becomes 23rd state to allow medical marijuana

    July 07, 2014

    A major victory for MMJ and for vaping!

    "ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — New York is now the 23rd state in the country to authorize marijuana as a medical treatment — though the state will have one of the more restrictive programs in the U.S.

    Under legislation signed into law on Saturday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, patients with one of 10 diseases will be able to obtain non-smokeable versions of the drug.

    Instead, the drug must be ingested or administered through a vaporizer or oil base."

  • Berkeley City Council's Proposed e-Cigarette Ban May Include Cannabis Vaporizers

    July 02, 2014

    Dale Gieringer of California NORML passed along this important message:

    "The Berkeley City Council will be hearing an ordinance restricting the use of e-cigarettes this July 8th.  Cal NORML is concerned that e-cigs are defined in such a way as to include cannabis vaporizers. The proposal would disallow use of e-cigs wherever smoking is banned, with the exception of apartment units.

    The city's report fails to recognize the health benefits of vaporizers for medical marijuana patients, or for tobacco smokers in general.  Attached is our testimony.

    Advocates for vaporization are encouraged to make their views known to the city."

  • DaVinci Ascent vs Pinnacle Pro Vaporizer Comparison

    July 01, 2014

    Pinnacle Pro vs Davinci Ascent

    Both the Da Vinci Ascent and Pinnacle Pro by Vaporblunt are very nice portable vapes. You can't really go wrong with either one, but without a doubt, the Ascent has better vapor quality thanks to its glass vapor path.

    If these two vaporizers were the same price, I would choose the Ascent.

    Reasons why the Ascent is better than the Pinnacle Pro

    • Ascent has a glass vapor path for cleaner flavor. The Pinnacle Pro's vapor path is plastic.
    • Vapor is cooler on the Ascent, since the vapor path spans the entire device. On the Pinnacle Pro, vapor is hotter because the vapor path is very short (the mouthpiece is right next to the heating chamber).
    • The Ascent feels more solid, hefty, and high quality. Pinnacle Pro feels lightweight and plastic.
    • Better temperature control settings on the Ascent.
    • From my experience, it feels like the Ascent has better battery life.

    Reasons why the Pinnacle Pro is better than the Ascent

    • The bullet loading system of the Pinnacle Pro is very convenient. The Ascent is a little more clumsy to load.
    • The Pinnacle Pro is skinnier, lighter, and conceals better in your palm for stealth hits.
    • Some people may actually like the hot vapor of the Pinnacle Pro, because it feels more like conventional smoking.
    • Pinnacle Pro is compatible with the optional water filtration hydratube.
    • Pinnacle Pro is cheaper by about $70.
