Hey, what's up guys? Today we're going to start talking about dabbing on the go. First, we're going to show you the most easy way to do it. Nice little nectar collector, nice and simple. Real pretty. All of these guys here are going to be a glass option, so minimal temperature, minimal heat, maximum dabbage.

So, these are some of the examples of simple dabbing. We've got your basic straws here, and they get a little bit longer, they get a little bit thicker. And then we've got some removable options here. We've also got the big daddy here, which is the nectar collector with the water functions. Plus, we've got some extra kits, extra tips on the inside here. We've got the titanium tip, and we've got a quartz option.

First we're going to talk about how to use the simple dabbers here. With these guys, this one, this one, and this one. Very minimal heat, like I said, goes into this guy. So we're going to torch the tip for about 10 to 15 seconds, or until you see a nice orange hue. Once you see that orange hue, you're ready to go.

What you're going to want to do is make sure that you hold it at about a 45 degree angle and kind of tap your concentrate. That way, we're not flooding it on the inside, and you get the best hit.

With something a little thicker like this guy here made by our buddy Dan Barto, you've got a much wider tip here, show you here, and a nice wide open body. This gives you that more mouth to lung hit.

With this guy, nice option, made by our buddy Bubbler Dave, you have a glass on glass connection here. What this does is it makes it a whole lot easier to maintain the inside of your device. Now again, we can see this guy has a nice wide opening on the inside, great for air flow. So again, torch your tip for about 15 to 20 seconds with something like this, and still, at about a 45 degree angle, and tap your concentrates here.

Then we're going to talk about the Micro NC Kit. This is the guy that has the water functions. I'm going to show you how to assemble that bad boy. Pull it out here. See that we got the perk right here. The most important thing with this guy is where your water's at. Water is super important. We want to make sure that our water level isn't going up above the lines here, because unfortunately this guy's not spill-proof. We don't want to wear the water, that would be a bad day. Next, we're going to take the mouthpiece, give it a little quarter turn so nothing falls out. We're going to use the quartz tip today. Again, nice little quarter turn, nothing falls out. So same temperature as something like this, about 15 to 20 seconds and you're going to tap your concentrates. The cool part about this guy is it comes with a nice little glass concentrate dish so you can lay your concentrates on the inside of there and do your thing.

Next, we're going to show you the titanium tip here. See here? See how it goes in? Give it a little quarter turn. These guys don't tend to stay very well, so we've got two clips on the inside here to make sure that this guy doesn't fall off and you don't end up burnt. Nothing's coming out. With the titanium tip, you're going to end up torching for about 15 to 30 seconds. We want to see a nice orange hue on the top here. Once that happens, it's really important to maintain your 45 degree so that this guy doesn't get flooded. The most important part about this is where you're torching. You want to make sure that it's at the top here. If you're going towards the back here, it can cause this bad boy to crack. That's not what we want.

And that, guys, is dabbing on the go. You can pick up any of these devices at any Myxed Up location, or at MyxedUp.com.

Video Transcript

Hey everybody. Welcome back to this episode of MyxedUpTV. I'm Todd and today we're going to be talking about dab straws. What are they? Well, most people think when you take a dab that you would need something like a water pipe or rig, something a little bit larger. Dab straws are probably the most efficient and probably the easiest way to dab without having to have all of the extras. I have here in front of you a few different styles of dab straws that we carry and then I'm going to use my own personal dab straw, which is one of the ones I have here to show you exactly how it all works.

A dab straw is basically what it sounds like. It's similar to a glass tube. One end will be for heating up for your nail where you'll heat this up and go into a concentrate, and the other end will be in a mouthpiece. At Myxed Up we do have a few different varieties. Our smallest ones are these guys. They're $12. We do have the next size up in that which is $18 so you can see here, heat up this end with your torch and use this end for your mouthpiece.

The one that I'm going to be using today are these guys here. I prefer these a little bit better. They are a little shorter than the long ones, but a little longer than the short ones, and they are about twice as thick in glass. So I do like these. These ones I believe are a much better dab straw than the smaller ones. But you can use anyone preferred on your price.

So normally with the dab you would heat up a nail and then you would use a tool to place your dab into your nail. Right? On a dab straw, it's similar, except you don't need the nail. You don't need the tool, you don't need a torch as big. We're actually just going to be using a small little guy today, and you can dab pretty much out of a lot of different things. So some people like to dab out of their silicone, non stick jars. That's what I'm going to use today. You could also use glass jars, glass dishes, things like that. That'll work just great, whatever you're going to keep your solid concentrates in.

So for those of you that know dabbing, we're going to be using a solid concentrate. That's what I have for us to use today. Just a little bit of shatter here and it's very simple. So as you can see, I have my dab straw on a nice little handy carrying case here. You put it on a lanyard, it could just hang on you. Put it in your pocket. Easy to go. Nice little leather guy. Pull it out. As you can see, this one's been used a little bit here. This is my own personal one. And so what I'll do is I'm going to heat the end up with a small torch and then we're just going to take this little concentrate and we're going to go down and we're just going to touch it with your dab straw.

So these are great for on the go. Great for traveling, very affordable, but you don't get water. So keys to heating this up. Make sure that you're not heating it up until it's glowing. If it's glowing red hot, that's way too hot. You want to make sure it cools down. With a nice smaller torch you don't have to take as long. The bigger ones are way too much for the glass and so you definitely don't want to be using those on your torch, unless you're good control and you can heat it up very evenly where you're not heating it up too much. So let's go ahead and we'll show you guys how to do this.

So we take our dab straw, take our torch, make sure we got our flame going, and then we're just going to slowly heat up the end of this torch. Now it doesn't take too long, it'll only take maybe ten seconds or so to really get your tip heated up to where you want it to be. I'm going to overheat it a little bit just so you guys can see the glow and that's what you don't want to do. As you can see now I'm starting to see just a tad bit of glow on the very end there. It might be a little bit difficult for you guys to see, but it's starting to glow just a hair. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to stop heating it up. I'm actually going to let it cool down a little bit because you don't want it that red hot when you do your dab and then once it cools down just a little bit, we're just going to touch it. Once we touch it, it'll vape.

There you go. So as you can see really easy, super quick. You don't have to pick anything up. You don't have to fumble with anything. It just stays right into your jar there. When I'm done, what's really nice with this guy is I can actually heat it up and since I have a leather case I can just drop it right back into my leather case and I don't have to worry about it getting hot or burning anything. And this can go right back into my pocket.

As for your concentrates. Yep. Just put your lid back on and you're ready to go. That's pretty much a whole set right here that you can take. Torch, dabber, and your concentrate all in one little kit and it can go in your pocket, go on your backpack, easy to go. So easy dabbing on the go. Dab straws 101. Right?

You guys can pick up these at myxedup.com or at any Myxed Up Creations locations. If you want something a little bit nicer, we also have water ones like Micro Nectar Collectors and things like that. Those guys are going to start out at about, I want to say $45 to $55 though on the website. So definitely check these smaller ones out, $12, $18 and I believe $25, $25 or $35 for the larger ones. It depends on the colors and things like that. But you can get, as you can see here, we have a slew of colors in the bigger ones and these ones are my favorite there you can see. But these work really nice, super convenient, and super ready for on the go. So thanks for watching everybody and we'll see you guys next time.

Yocan Dive Electronic Concentrate Pen Overview Video

An electronic upgrade to the nectar collector style dab straw

Yocan Dive Electronic Nectar Collector Dab Straw style Concentrate Pen

Are you ready to launch your dab game to the next level in 2020?  Check out the Dive by Yocan.  The Dive is an electronic nectar collector style concentrate pen with a ceramic coil that produces some of the best tasting vape and some of the best clouds you can get from any concentrate device!

YoCan is back at it again with more dank products for those of you that like taking dabs on the go but don't want to worry about a torch!  The Dive is an electronic dab straw that really packs a punch!

Video Transcript

Hey, what's up guys? Today we're going to be talking about the Dive from Yocan.

First things first, we're going to show you what's inside the box. We've got the Dive pen, comes with the charger, and it comes with an extra tip.

Next we're going to show you how to turn the Dive on. We've got the silver button here. One, two, three, four, five. See the flashing green button? Green light lets you know that the device is turned on. Then we use the magnetic closure here, you expose your coil.

You have three different temperature settings with your Dive. One, two, three switches you between your lowest, your medium, and your high setting. Your white light is your lowest setting: one, two, three. Your red setting is going to be your medium setting: one, two, three. Your green setting is going to be your highest setting. Now, why is that important? We want something with a little bit less vapor production, we're going to go down to a lower temperature setting. We want that one hitter quitter option, we're going to crank it up to the highest setting.

With this guy, this is going to be your mouthpiece. The only reason you'd ever really need to open this guy up is to clean your mouthpiece up here. You will build a little condensation from product on the inside.

When we're actually ready to dab with the Dive, you want to make sure that your device is at a 45 degree angle and you're going to touch your concentrates. With this device, it's very important to make sure that you're utilizing your angles. As we can see, this guy's not very wide open on the top. We want to encourage airflow on the inside.

To charge the Dive, you're going to utilize your in-kit micro USB charger and it plugs in right on the side here. What you want to do is when you pull it out of the box, make sure that you use it until it's completely dead. It does have about a quarter to half charge on it or a demo charge. Once this little light won't stop flashing at you and it's generally going to be a white light, when that won't start flashing at you, plug this in and monitor it for about two to three hours or until this light turns green. Whichever happens first is totally okay. The worst thing that you can do with your Dive is overcharge it. Once you've overcharged it, it does eliminate a lot of the battery memory out of this and you won't have your device for as long as you're going to want.

To clean the Dive, you're going to want to maintain your heating elements here. As we can see, this is a ceramic chamber up here. It's very, very, very simple to maintain. All you need to do is take a Q-tip with the tiniest little bit of alcohol on it or utilize an alcohol prep pad and wipe off the top. The cleaner that the top piece is, the better air flow that you're going to get, ultimately the better dab you're going to have.

And that guys is the Dive by Yocan. You can pick this up at any Myxed Up location or at here online!

XVape Aria Dry Herb and Waxy Concentrate Vape Overview Video

Overview of the features and functionality of The Aria by XVape

The XVape Aria Portable Dry Herb and Concentrate Vaporizer Kit is a convenient 2-way Vape. In this episode of MyxedUpTV, Rachael from Myxed Up Creations in Aurora gives us the rundown on the Aria. Learn about some of the settings and options as well as the controls to get the most out of your Aria!

 

Video Transcript

Hey what's up, guys? Today we're going to be talking about the Aria from XVape. This is a portable dry herb slash concentrate vaporizer. So, we're going to go ahead and show you some of the cool stuff that this guy has. So, we've got the device here. Let me go ahead and pull this guy out. You've got a sweet little accessory kit. We've got the charger, we got a cleaning brush, we got a nice little concentrate deal here, and we've got some extra screens. Also, on the actual device we have a cleaning brush. Right here, pretty snazzy.

Next we're going to show you how to turn this bad boy on. One, two, three, four, five on the button here. See how it immediately shows you the coffee pot here? Go ahead and check that out. See how it's flashing? When it goes steady, it's going to let you know that it's at optimum temperature, or the temperature that you set it at. Next, we're going to show you how to switch this bad boy between Fahrenheit and Celsius. We're going to hold the power button and the down button for about five seconds. We're going to see how that switches there. I'm going to show you how to switch it back. Power button, down button. See how that switches?

Next we're going to show you how to toggle in between the 10 minute setting and the five minute setting. We're going to hold the power button here and we're going to hold the top button here. See how that switched from nine minutes to four minutes? Just that simple. So again, top button, top button here.

Next we're going to show you how to properly load the Aria. We're going to take off the top here. We've got magnets, so it's a nice easy on/off. It's going to be a ceramic chamber, which is very nice, so that you don't end up heating up the mouthpiece when it gets a little hot. We've got the screens up here in the top. All of this comes out for easy cleaning, and you note a screen on the inside here. First you're going to ground up your product and loosely load it on the inside of this guy. We want to make sure that we're not over packing because it eliminates a lot of the air flow. Once you've got your product loaded on the inside there, we're going to put the mouthpiece back on there. As we already talked about, you're going to set your settings so that you can start vaping.

Now to load your concentrates, we're going to take the little screen on the inside here. We're going to drop it down in the bottom of the chamber. Make sure that your device is off before you do this. The Aria does get very hot. So, you see how it's on the bottom there? You're going to put your concentrates on the top there. Make sure that you're not loading a bunch in there so that it properly vapes.

Next I'm going to show you how to charge your Aria. You're going to notice a small micro USB charger right here at the bottom. In the kit, you get your USB adapter. You're going to want to make sure that you run your Aria completely dead before you go ahead and charge it up that first time.

All right guys, and this is the Aria. You can pick this up at any Myxed Up Creations location, or at MyxedUp.com.

Come on down to your local Myxed Up Creations in Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo to check them out in person, or shop us online for the XVape Aria, or any other urban supply needs.

Video Transcript

What's up guys? Today we're going to be unboxing the Carta by Focus V. So when you open this carrying case, you're going to have the actual device here. We've got the titanium bucket. We've got some quartz buckets. We've got a carb cap, a charger, and then some alcohol wipes in there too.

So to use this device, you just press this five times. It's going to vibrate and show you how much battery life is on there. And then you press it once and it's going to be on the lowest heat setting. Then if you just keep pressing that button, you can have the heat go up. And then once it turns green, then it's ready to go.

So when you go to charge your device, we've got the charging port in the back, and then it's going to plug into anything that has a USB port. So when you go to use it, you're going to want to throw your product in this bowl here and then go ahead and cap it. You're going to heat it up. It's going to start heating up. Then once it turns green and vibrates, you're good to go.

Why are Video Games and Cannabis a Match Made in Heaven?

Cannabis and video games

Can you cultivate a better video game experience by consuming cannabis?

Thanks to improvements in technology, the rise of the smartphone and the growth of indie gaming, video games are more popular, accessible, and stimulating than ever. So what happens when you infuse your favorite digital pastime with cannabis? Find out with Myxed Up!

Game Time: Myxed Up with Cannabis

The Princess, Luigi, and the Myxed Up MushroomWhether you’re a fan of the latest gaming trends or stick to the classics, video games are one of our most popular pastimes for a reason. Not only do video games stimulate our imaginations and provide us an escape from the monotony of the day-to-day, these also provide gamers with a feeling of control that usually comes with the satisfaction of having learned—and mastered—a particular skill set or gameplay scenario.

Imagination also plays an important role here; in a world filled with uncertainty, in the virtual world, a gamer can be whomever or whatever they’d like. From zombie-killers to dragons or renegade soldiers. When it comes to cannabis and video games you’re only limited by your imagination- and how much weed you have at your disposal.

One major factor affecting our online engagements and video game engagements, is the lack of real world consequences, especially when you make a mistake. For example, in a video came, you can build your own empire, jump off of a bridge, or lift an entire school bus on your own because there are no “real life” factors at play that would result in negative consequences if you fail. Instead, you have the luxurious option of taking another toke and using as many lives as you need to develop a winning strategy.

Getting Paid to Play Video Games and Smoke Weed?

Did you know that there are professional gamers out there making hundreds of thousands of dollars just by playing video games? Professional American gamer Johnathan Wendel (Fatal1ty) did just that. Considered by many as “the first, and best, electronic competition player ever,” Wendel has earned over $450,000 in prize money during his career playing First Person Shooter games like Call of Duty, Doom 3, Counter-Strike, and more.

Wendel isn’t the only gamer to hit the big time. In fact, all eight of the highest paid video gamers in the world average almost half-a-million dollars each in annual prize money winnings. In addition to their winnings from tournaments or competitions, many of the top-tiered gamers also have some form of sponsorship or promotional income they earn passively or by playing in paid forums.

Can Cannabis Improve Your Game?

While more study is needed, some researchers believe that cannabis and gaming can be good for you. This is because video games, particularly newer ones, can help improve your hand-eye coordination while cannabis has been found to deliver significant antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in lab studies. Together, the combination of reflex exercises and cannabis have the potential to deliver therapeutic benefits when it comes to lowering stress levels and exercising your brain.

Video games and cannabis may also help those coping dementia or Alzheimer’s by helping improve short-term memory retention. According to a test study performed by the Groningen Mental Enhancement Department in the Netherlands, scientists found that use of cannabis while gaming led to increased memory retention amongst Alzheimer’s patients.

According to one researcher:
“All the test subjects played increasingly challenging games each day, but half the group was also administered smoke. Would you believe that the marijuana test group scored 43 percent better memory retention than the control group? It was a far greater benefit to the marijuana-administered group than we could have imagined."

What's up, everybody? It's your girl, Izzy Blazee, here with Myxed Up Creations, bringing you the latest, greatest, and hottest products on the market. Things that I would use, that you should use, so you can have the best experience.

Listen, we've all done it. You've grabbed your glass, put it in a t-shirt, put it in a backpack. You've wrapped it up in your mom's favorite towel that you know you shouldn't have, but you did, and now it smells bad. You don't want to go out and about constantly worrying about your glass, but also not taking care of your investment. One of my favorite things is not only rolling with nice glass, but rolling in style.

Dime Bags helps me do just that. It's literally got all of the options for all the girls and boys, who go and play with the big toys. You got a spoon, something simple, maybe a nectar collector, it's perfect for these small pouches. It also comes with a smell-proof bag.

Maybe you just want to take the coolest glass that you have, the biggest one, but you really want to cradle it like a baby. You can literally cradle it like a baby. You have the options of bigger sizes, more inserts, and a lot more safety options. So, in addition to the style, the color, the sizes, everything like that, probably one of the most important things that I care about and you'll care about as well is the odor. Is it going to smell? Especially when it's already been a piece of glass that's been used, that you're transporting back home to clean up. It is smell-proof. So, you're going to take care of your stuff, you're going to be protected, not only your glass, but yourself.

Are you ready to get on that same flow and pick out one of your next bags? Check it out at MyxedUp.com as well as all of the great Myxed Up creations in Colorado.

Come on down to your local Myxed Up Creations in DenverAuroraColorado Springs, and Pueblo to check them out in person, or shop us online for all of your urban supply needs.

2019 Myxed Up 420 Recap

 420 2019 at Myxed Up Creations was an epic day filled with amazing moments

Myxed Up 420 Zong raffle winners in Aurora

Myxed Up 420 2019 was an epic one indeed, and you couldn't possibly have ever asked for any better circumstances for this one.  The weather was sunny and warm, and spring was in step.  And this year, Myxed Up Nation's favorite holiday fell on a Saturday!  It was the perfect temperature on the perfect day.  It was every sunshine loving stoners dream come true!  A feeling of positivity and energy filled the air. 

The year 2019 was the 6th April 20th (4/20) with fully recreational cannabis in Colorado, and now there are 10 states (and Washington DC) with recreational cannabis laws already in the books.  For some reason there was this overwhelming feeling that the 4/20 holiday has officially moved from a counterculture phenomenon to the mainstream, peeling back a new layer of social acceptance.  Welcome to Colorado where you wouldn't be at all surprised if the person sitting next to you at church on Easter Sunday smelled like weed from their 4/20 party the night before.

The day started out quickly at the brand new Myxed Up Creations location in Colorado Springs and Aurora as the sidewalk sales got the vibe right early.  Dabbin Dan was slanging glass with a frenzy and deals were being made left and right!  Between the line out the door of the dispensary next door and the crowded sidewalk sale, the scene was a party without a doubt.  Within minutes of officially opening at 10 o'clock the legendary grab bags were already almost sold out.

One of the highlights of this year's 4/20 was, without a doubt, our stores 420 Zong raffle.  We called the winners of each stores Zong raffle winners first thing in the morning on Saturday, and I think it's safe to say we made it a very memorable 4/20 for 4 very lucky individuals.

One of the pillars of the cannabis community are the glass blowers that make the art that we all love so much.  The unique hand blown glass made by local artists are an important part of any thriving scene.  As often as we can, we try our best to highlight these amazing artists to draw attention to their impressive skill set.  One of the best ways we can do that is to showcase these artists at work at our 4/20 and More20 events.  Once again we would like to thank these guys for coming down and spending their 420 with us!

At 3:00pm we had the motherload of grub arrive to satisfy all of our munchies!  Now we had a chance to fill our bellies with some delicious food.  By now the music was pumping at all of our stores!  Yes, now it was a party!  And with only an hour until 4:20pm, the smoke session of the year, it officially felt like the 4/20 vibe was right on point!

 

As with other recent editions of Myxed Up 420, one of the main highlights of the day was the music. Once again we had musicians with a wide range of musical styles come down to the shops and share their talents with all of the Myxed Up Fam! It's always a great honor to have these local acts as our guests to be such an integral part of this amazing celebration. We would like to thank the following artists for lending us their talent.

The icing on the cake for every Myxed Up 420 in recent memory has always been the raffle.  Up for grabs this were were three levels of Phill's Bills winners.  $250 for first, $100 for second, and a $50 spot for third.  We also had the pleasure of dishing out three more prizes at each location, with Dab Box and Dab Box Kings from Snowcloudz, as well as a High5 E-nail!  Seeing the smiles on the winners faces makes it a highlight that is hard to top.

After the exciting conclusion of the raffle we tried to make sure that no one walked away empty handed, as we gave away a boatload of t-shirts to anyone and everyone that stuck it out to the end.  And with that, another amazing 420 was in the books.  Finally, it was time to kick off our shoes and enjoy 4/20 as a participant!  

Thank you again to all of the Myxed Up Fam that came out to make this 4/20 another epic excursion!  You are the people that truly make this possible each and every year!  The countdown to 4/20 2020 is on!
