Is CBN the Next Cannabinoid Trend?

Take a Different Kind of Trip with Cannabinol

Whether you’re lighting up with flower or torching up the perfect cannabis concentrate, THC and CBD aren’t the only cannabinoids that are helping your body and mind. Cannabinol is a mildly psychoactive cannabinoid that is worth taking a closer look at.

Cannabinol

What are Cannabinoids?

Cannabinoids are chemical constituents found naturally in the resin of the cannabis plant. While more than 100 of these chemicals have been discovered, we are still learning about the different effects and benefits they deliver. The most well-known cannabinoids are THC, which is known for its psychoactive effects, and CBD, which was recently approved by the FDA to treat epilepsy.

What is CBN?

Cannabinol (CBN) is a cannabinoid with mildly psychoactive effects. Like THC, CBN is derived from tetrahydrocannabinolic acid and is created when THC-A oxidizes. However, unlike THC, which is highly psychoactive and responsible for the euphoric feeling of being ‘high,’ CBN can be used as a sleep aid or to help combat anxiety.

When THC is exposed to oxygen or heat, cannabinol is produced. Also called oxidization, this process generally occurs naturally over time as THCA degrades. This chemical process is also the reason why CBN is found more abundantly in badly stored or aged cannabis. While THC-lovers may bemoan the loss of some THC over time, the therapeutic benefits of CBN are difficult to ignore.

Like CBD, CBN can be incorporated into your routine as a sedative or sleep aid. Cannabinol has also been found to help regulate our immune system by helping to relieve pain and inflammation caused by several degenerative conditions, like Crohn’s disease and arthritis. Studies have also shown that helps reduce intraocular eye pain caused by glaucoma. CBN’s anticonvulsant properties also make it helpful for patient coping from seizure disorders, like epilepsy.

Cannabinol Effects and Benefits

Though limited, research has indicated that CBN has the potential to be an effective aid in the treatment of various chronic conditions and symptoms, including those from:

  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Epilepsy
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Chronic pain and inflammation
  • Insomnia
  • Anxiety

How Does CBN Affect the Body?

While CBN does not bind as well to cannabinoid receptors, use of cannabinol is known to produce powerful sedating effects, particularly when combined with THC. For example, one early study found that 5mg of CBN has the potential to be just as effective as 10mg of diazepam and other pharmaceutical sedatives. While myrcene levels are often considered, the presence of CBD is often thought to contribute to the sleep-inducing and sedating effects experienced when consuming indica strains.

Despite delivering sedating effects, CBN does not deliver the powerful psychoactive effects often associated with consuming cannabis or high-THC strains. Like THC however, only tiny doses of CBN are required for it to affect our bodies and the content of CBN in any bud rarely surpasses the 1% in cured flower.

In addition to its powerful effects as an anti-inflammatory agent, studies have also indicated that CBN could help in the stimulation of bone tissue growth by triggering an indirect recruitment of stem cells from surrounding bone marrow. Called mesenchymal cells, these stem cells are known for their ability to transform into bone and other tissues making CBD a useful chemical trigger for healing fractures.

The ability of CBD to aide metabolic issues on a cellular level can also be seen in CBN’s ability to ease the overgrowth of skin cells. For example, patients with psoriasis can use CBD to help to regulate their body's production of skin cells. In a 2008 study CBN not only showed potential for treating psoriasis when applied as a topical, but also as a way of helping treat MRSA and some burns. While human trials are still needed, there is sufficient evidence to support the combination of CBN and CBD as an efficient way to help treating burn victims by providing pain relief and anti-inflammatory benefits without the threat of opioid addiction.

Where Can I Find CBN in a dispensary?

Despite being one of the lesser understood cannabinoids, early findings and anecdotal evidence suggest that CBN has a great potential to deliver a number of health benefits. From its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory potential to pain relief and anti-convulsive effects, CBN may just be the next cannabinoid you find yourself asking a budtender about. Have you tried CBN yet?

The Benefits of Meditating with Cannabis

Combining meditation with cannabis is a centuries-old practice.

From reducing your stress levels to helping you live longer, the list of benefits experienced by adding a daily dose of meditation to your day are widely acknowledged, if not practiced. But what about combining meditation with your favorite smoking ritual?

Meditating with Cannabis

Enhancing Your Meditation Practice with Cannabis

Did you know that stress has been considered a ‘major health problem’ in America since 2007? From work, money, and housing to the future of the nation, more than half of the country’s adults are stressed. Moreover, that stress is also taking its toll on people’s well-being by contributing to health problems, straining relationships, and even reducing productivity at work.

Regardless of what your stressors are,  living in a state of perpetual mental or physical stress causes our bodies to increase production of a hormone called cortisol. Best known for helping fuel our ‘fight-or-flight’ response during a crisis, cortisol plays an important role in everything from metabolism to our sleep cycles. However, if your body is in a constant state of stress or anxiety, too much cortisol can lead to a number of health issues, including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Weight issues
  • Digestive issues
  • Problems remembering things and concentrating
  • Heart disease

How People Are Coping with Stress

While more than half of Americans get physical to cope with stress, the use of meditation has been increasing since 2008. In addition to helping people cope with stress, meditation has also been found to decrease stress levels and even improve symptoms of stress-related medical conditions, like IBS, PTSD, and more.

Self-care is also one of the critical components driving cannabis use and legalization. From helping people combat the symptoms of chronic medical conditions, like epilepsy, to providing relief from sleeplessness, nausea, and more, cannabis helps people in a number of ways.

While getting baked before meditating may seem strange to some, cannabis and meditation have a history that goes back thousands of years. In fact, cannabis has been a component of spiritual practice by religious groups for millennia, including practitioners of Hinduism, Sufism, Taoism, and even sects of Tibetan Buddhism, among others.

Myx Up Your Meditation Practice with Cannabis

The use of cannabis during meditation allows the consumer to access an elevated and more open state of mind. For example, if you’re someone who copes with negative thoughts or anxiety, these states of mind can induce stress and all of the negative consequences that come with living in a fear state. By replacing your negative thoughts or coping with stress through mindfulness and finding peace through meditation, you may be able to lower your stress levels and even improve your health.

As many lovers of cannabis know, cannabinoid receptors are present in very high levels in the regions of the brain that mediate thoughts, behaviors, and mood. When we consume cannabis, cannabinoids like THC, CBD, and even CBN interact with these receptors and producing euphoric, relaxing, and enervating effects. No matter your tolerance and consumption preference, it’s important to find a strain or product with the right potency and terpene profile for you. For example, consuming high THC flower can sometimes cause anxiety or hyper
stimulation, especially when combined with specific terpene profiles.

In addition to finding the right cannabinoid and terpene profiles for your practice, it’s also important to figure out what form of meditation works best for you. For example, some meditation practices focus on breath and body mindfulness while others, like gazing meditation, invite you to find clarity and focus through using your senses.

How to Consume Cannabis Before Meditating

Once you’ve decided on your product and your form of meditation, the next step is determining how you’re going to get elevated before you find your ‘Zen’.

Find Your Flow with Flower

Smoking your favorite strain just before you begin is a simple and classic way to infuse your meditation practice without the risk of getting too high too fast. While a freshly rolled joint or blunt may seem appealing, a simple glass pipe is a practical--and portable--way to consume cannabis before meditating. Simply pack your preferred flower strain into your favorite pipe or one-hitter and take a hit or two, focusing on a calm, smooth exhale. Once you start to feel the effects of the cannabis. Set the pipe aside and begin your meditation exercise. Remember, the
goal of using cannabis for meditation isn’t simply to ‘get high,’ it’s to access an elevated and more conscious state of being. If you’re in a state where recreational cannabis consumption is legal, you may also want to consider taking your practice outside and letting nature be a part of the experience.

Dab Your Stress Away with Meditation

While high-THC products like cannabis concentrates or vape oils aren’t typically recommended for use during meditation, innovation in the marijuana industry has given the curious consumer more options than ever. In addition to terpene-rich concentrates, CBD dabs and isolates have also begun to appear in store and dispensary shelves. In addition to mediating some of the anxiety-inducing effects of THC, CBD is also known for its potent mood lifting effects, making it the ideal addition to any cannabis-infused meditation practice. Fortunately, dabbing with CBD is just like dabbing other concentrates; you just need the right concentrate oil rig or pipe.

Take a Cannabis Tea Break Instead

Other than smoking cannabis, one of the oldest ways to consume cannabis, is by brewing it into a tea. Cannabis tea is not only a great way to get some use out of your old stems, it’s also a method of consumption that will produce gentler psychoactive effects, which are particularly desirable for entering a meditative state of mind. It’s also more discreet and easier on your body than smoking or dabbing.

Myxed Up Marijuana Tip: If you’re conducting your meditation in a public space, like a park, you may want to consider looking for a private location or discreet consumption options like vaporizer pens or edibles instead.

Marijuana Makes Everything Better, Including Meditation

From boosting your mood to helping you center and connect with what truly satisfies you in life, meditation is just of the many activities that cannabis can myx up to bring you less stress, more joy, and better days.

This is our Yocan 2.0 3-in-1 vaporizer, really nice unit. This one here is a rose gold. It's a real nice little unit there. Let's go ahead and set that down. In the box you're also going to get a couple different things. You're going to get your how to use pods card. It's going to show both your regular nic and salted nic pods as well as your coil pods for shatters and waxes. I'm going to set that down. Now we have our Yocan Evolve 2.0 instructional manual. This you're going to want to keep a hold of. It's going to go through all your different parts, functions, how to use it, how to fill, what each pod's for. You'll definitely want to keep this thing. We'll go ahead and keep going here as we jump in.

Here we have your Evolve 2.0 cartridges. These cartridges, you're going to get 3 different ones in your Evolve 2.0. These two cartridges here are going to be for your E-juices like nicotine vapes. Your white one or clear one here on this side has a smaller hole on the side. This is going to be more for your regular styled nic salt E-juices. You're also going to have your green top here which is a thick oil pod. You could do a thick THC oil or something like that. Your thicker juices you'll want to put in here, or even a high VG juice.

Your third tank is actually already here on top of your vape battery. To remove it, you're just going to pull off the top just like that. It's magnetic, very simple to do. Then these pieces actually just pop off here and you can see right down in the coil there. This is a dual quartz coil there that you could see on the bottom. This would be designed for your shatters, waxes, hash solid concentrates, things like that. Once you would put your product in there you would just drop your top right back on there and then magnetically insert right into your lid. You're also going to be getting a USB charger in your kit, micro USB, pretty standard in the vape community. If you've got a nice Android or a lot of different charging units today, they usually use a micro USB, so pretty easy to get.

Yocan Evolve 2.0 Coils

Now when you want to use this guy, what we're going to do here is we'll go ahead and turn this one on. You get five taps on the button and then it flashes on. Now when I tap the button you can see that it turns on. Five more taps and it'll flash at you and now it'll turn itself off so when I touch the button it doesn't turn on. We'll go ahead, one, two, three, four, five, turn it back on here. Now what I'm going to try to do is just pull off the regular top and leave the coils in here. Let's see if I hold the button down and show you guys just how it heats up. You can see there it's starting to heat up. You've got a little bit of glow in there. There it goes. I want to get it closer to the camera for you. There we go.

Very nice, heats up very quickly. Make sure when you're filling this that you don't touch the coils. You don't want to poke the coils in there. You also don't want to touch any metal to it while it's on. It got a little out of focus there. Very easy to use. Put our lid back on here. Five more taps, one, two, three, four, five, and it'll flash at you. What's really nice about this is it's nice and sleek, but if you wanted to you could have multiple vaping functions for your night out. Pull off your concentrate top when you don't want to smoke any concentrates. You can just throw in your standard vape tops. Toss a vape top in, vape on it a little bit. Oh, you want to go back to your waxes and shatters? Just pop it out, simply just as this. Pull it out, pop it back in, the next one, and then you can go to town.

Very, very simple overall unit. It looks like you're going to get about a ... Oh, there's three different adjustable temperature settings as well. To change those temperature settings what we're going to do is go through on our button here, one, two, three, four, five, turn it on. Now that we're on, we're blue. We go one, two, three, it's going to change. Now we're at our green setting. Then one, two, three, it's going to change and we are now at our white setting. White, blue, green is your different settings there. One, two, three, change to blue.

As you can see, you can be able to heat it up or cool it down for different temperature settings, which really work well with the quartz coils. One, two, three, four, five, turn it back off and then you're ready to go. Toss it into your pocket and do whatever you want. Super nice little unit there. Battery life is only about a 650 milliamp battery. You're not going to get a whole lot of use out of it, but with the smaller coil styles and stuff you'd get a nice full day out of it. It only takes about an hour or two for charging so it's a quick charge unit as well. Really nice little unit overall. I hope you guys enjoyed this one, the Yocan Evolve 2.0.

Video Transcript

What's going on everyone? Token with Todd here from Myxed Up Creations. Today, we're going to be talking to you about a new kit from Hamilton Devices. This kit is a Palm CCell kit. As you can see, it comes with a nice little battery, it comes with two new tanks, as well as a couple little fittings, and a USB charger. Why don't we open it up, see how it works, shall we?

Now, if you're joining us for the first time, make sure you smash out and hit that subscribe button that way you don't miss anything for next time.

Hamilton Devices Ccell Kit

So when you first pull out battery, you can see right here. Super simple and sleek little battery. Very thin frame here and on the back you can see there's your slit area where your tanks gonna go in. Now, on the base here you're gonna have the micro USB charger. You do get a micro USB charger that comes in the kit, and most standard Androids have the same micro USB charger as well.

You're also going to be getting two CCell tanks in the kit and they look like this. They're ceramic mouthpiece with a ceramic CCell coils on the inside. Super nice. Very easy to use. This basically is going to have a function where you can unscrew the lid right here, pull off this lid, and you'll be able to fill this tank with the juice of your choice.

Now, you can put in regular vape juices in this. Most people use them for waxes and shatter juices. They tend to a work a little bit better. But, make sure it's a juice and not a solid concentrate. You'll run into a little bit of issue there.

So when you want to use your Palm CCell, you're gonna need your tank. Now, as long as you have a standard 510 threaded tank, and that's the threads on the bottom, you can buy pre-filled tanks from dispensaries. Now, you're going to need these little pins here. As you can see, this little tiny cap here, this is going to be your magnetic attachment cap. That's going to have everything sit in really nice into your battery.

So what we do here is we will take our tank. You can see on the base here we've already pulled off the little silicone rubber cap that was on there. We're gonna take our cap here and we're going to just screw it down right over top of the your 510 threads at the base there.

So now once you've got this all set and ready, all you have to do is drop it straight in to your tank. So as you can see there, it slid right down, locked right in, went nice and magnetic. You can pull it straight out to get it out again. You're ready to go. That's all you gotta do. There's no on or off function for the Palm. You basically can just hit it and it'll start to vape. It'll automatically turn on, it'll vape.

And what's nice about this little window here is you'll actually be able to see how much of your vape that you're gonna run through. So you can switch out different tanks if you want. There is a second attachment piece, magnetic attachment screw-on piece, and a second tank that comes inside of your whole kit. So you'll get two tanks, two attachment kits, and your Palm CCell with your micro USB charger.

Palm Ccell Vaporizer Battery

Pretty nice little kit. Super nice little battery there. It's only about a 650 milliamp. It's not very big, but with these smaller CCell tanks you don't really a need a very, very, very large battery.

Simple to use, even simpler to take with you. That nice thin, sleek, little, drop it in your pocket, you don't even know about it. So I hope you guys really enjoyed this. Super nice little vape battery on the market now. We do sell the Palm CCells separately, but I think this little kit seems to work a little bit better. So Hamilton Devices the CCell with Palm kit.

So thanks for hanging out with us today. We really appreciate you guys. As always, I'm Todd and we will see you next time. Peace out.

Video Transcript

Welcome back everyone. Token with Todd here from Myxed Up Creations. Today we're gonna be talking to you about a new vaporizer from Yocan. This is the Evolve Plus XL. It is a larger style than the Evolve Plus, it comes with a much larger coil.
Bigger batteries, bigger tanks, overall a much, much better device. So, make sure you guys are hitting that subscribe button, stay tuned 'cause we're about to jump into it.
Well, thanks for sticking with us everybody. So, now we're gonna be talking about the Yocan Evolve Plus XL. It is a quad coil vaporizer used mainly for solid concentrates. Let's go ahead and open it up, shall we?
As we pull it open, there she is, right on the inside. Today we've picked a rose gold color to show you guys. They do come in a slew of other colors, there's a black, a silver, I think even a regular gold as well. Let me go ahead and pull that out there for ya.
So this is the Evolve Plus XL, super nice unit, really nice, hefty size. It's got a little bit of weight to it there. Let's go ahead and we'll start going the box here before we show you all the other features.
When you first get your box, you're gonna get your little Yocan card here. It's gonna be a thank you for purchasing, show you how to finish out all of your product details and stuff like that, so you know exactly what you're gettin'.
So we're gonna get a bunch of different extras in here. First thing you're gonna be getting is a Yocan, looks like a lanyard. Really nice little lanyard unit there. On the one end, it has a ring circle, a disk ring. So this disk ring actually sits in between on your vape here. It will set down and lock in, just underneath, and I'll show you guys this in a little bit.
You're also going to be getting a micro USB charger. Standard just like your cell phones, if you've got an Android. And then you're going to be getting one extra quad coil, and here's your quad coil there, see if we can get it good enough for it to focus. Not so much. There it goes, so as you can see there, we have four quad quartz coils.
You've got coils wrapped with quartz core, really, really nice unit surrounded by a bunch of ceramic. Super nice little unit there, and that's gonna come standard in here. So you're gonna get two of those, one extras. You're also gonna be getting one Yocan dab tool. This stainless steel dab tool, little poker, and scoop on the end of it.
Now, let's go ahead and show you guys the vape pen, shall we? Really nice unit here, the Evolve Plus XL. It just has a magnetic top, so when you want to pull off your mouthpiece, it comes right off, just like that. Pops right off as you can see. You've got one pre installed coil, already sittin' here.
This guy has a lid that comes off, so make sure to keep your lid. You only get one lid and it'll fit your other coil as well, so you want to make sure that you've put that back in the foil. Now inside we've got another quad coil that you see there. This is gonna unscrew just like any standard vape coil on a regular vape battery.
Then you're also gonna have your mount for your coils. So that's gonna sit there, and then you've got your battery too. Now underneath your battery, which is a really nice design feature in the XL Plus, it's actually in the smaller Plus as well, not just the XL, is the removable dab jar.
This dab jar actually has the ability to have a lid on it, which you can take off all the way. Then when you unscrew you've got your silicon inside. So you can keep two different types of product in here. Screw this on, and this can actually get passed around, you can just take this with you, if you just wanted to keep this in your pocket or something.
Or if you have a dab straw and something easy like that. As you can see here, it screws right back into the base, super simple. So that way, you at least have your product with you wherever you're going.
Now as I was telling you before about your lanyard, this little device here actually slides in and slides right below your coil area. We'll go ahead and put that on so you guys can see, and I'll put our coil base down now. That holds in our lanyard unit. Want to take our coil, that goes down on top of our coil spot here.
Then mouthpiece. Well, I guess you could put on your lid too. We're not gonna fill it today and put our lid on, but mouthpiece, lid. You'll wanna put the lid on, the lid actually has little micro holes in the side, that allow the smoke through, so it won't spat up at you when you're actually using it.
Yocan Evolve Plus XL Coils
So five quick taps. One, two, three, four, five. It'll give me a little tiny flash here, and when I hold it down here, you can see it turns on. As I hold down the button, you should see the coil start to light up. See if we can get a little closer in there for ya. Yeah, you can see it light up a little bit there.
She doesn't want to focus as well. Not today. But you can see it glow just the same in there, those little quartz coils lighting up. Really nice little unit. So you get a lot of vape outta this. You actually have throttle control on the side here, so you can change your air flow. If you want less or more vapor to come out.
Another one, two, three, four, five taps, it'll flash at you again, now I've shut the unit off so I don't hit the button in my pocket and heat up everything. We'll go ahead and we'll just return our cap here for our quad core and vape pen on top like that. So, really nice unit there, like I said, comes standard with the nice lanyard unit here so you guys won't actually have to put it in your pocket if you don't want to.
You can carry it around like a normal vape pen. But very, very nice overall unit. I really enjoy this little guy, so, I think you guys will enjoy it too, with the quad quartz coils. And you can get extra coils sold separately if you need, so. Very nice little dab and vape pen.
Appreciate you guys watching today, thanks for hanging out with us. Make sure you guys hit that subscribe button. We'll see ya later.
Well there you have it guys, pretty easy isn't it? The Yocan Evolve Plus XL. Comes in a bunch of different colors, this rose gold one's really neat, but we do have black and gold, I think in some other pieces.
As well as a bunch of other, you know, accessories and stuff, the coil replacements and stuff that you can get overall. Very, very nice little unit from Yocan, they've got a whole line of different vaporizers, but we've had a lot of really good feedback on this one, especially with the quad quartz coils that it comes with, so as always I'm Token with Todd, this is Myxed up TV, I really appreciate you guys, I will see ya next time.

So when the machine is finished, it's going to get all mixed up, all the plant matter will be chopped up. Pour it right through this filter.

Magical Butter Machine

Chris:     So we have here a tincture that we went ahead and set at 130 degrees for four hours.

Todd:    Okay.

Chris:     Show you exactly how easy it is to strain out your product. So you get your purify filter bag.

Todd:    Okay.

Chris:     And this LoveGlove is perfect to keep your hand clean and safe. So we'll go ahead now and slowly pour this through the filter into our catch container. We've got 28 grams of decarboxylated flour in there, and now we're going just let that naturally strain out. And using our LoveGlove, we can give it a nice squeeze to get every last drop.

Todd:    And it could also save you some money in the long term.

Chris:     Absolutely, I know for a small two ounce bottle of tincture, it's pretty pricey. You can make a whole batch, and it'll last you all year long.

Todd:    So Chris, how much is one of these things at Myxed Up?

Chris:     Well Todd, you get the complete Magical Butter kit including the botanical extractor, the purify filter bag, and the silicone LoveGlove, all for $220.

Todd:    Man, that's awesome. And you can also check them out at Myxedup.com , and we'll even ship them right to your house.

Chris:     Wow, that's great.

Todd:    Isn't it? Man, thanks so much for having me out here today, Chris. I super appreciate it, man. It's been a fun trip. Thanks everybody out there. We really appreciate our Myxed Up family. As always, I'm Todd, and this is Myxed Up TV. We'll see you later.

Top Five Products to Spend Your Holiday Cash

 It's time to cash out with the top five products to spend your holiday cash on!

Christmas has come and gone and the holiday season is almost over, but there are still tons of great deals and amazing products to make up for the cash you received this year. Some awesome advancements in tech and innovative design have created some of the best ideas. Today we are going to show you some of the amazing products of 2018 that are just waiting to come home with you.

PuffCo Peak

First on our list, we have an all new portable vaporizer design that has hit the market with soaring sales. The PuffCo Peak takes all the great features of a traditional torch and dab rig setup, and conveniently packs them all into one compact portable electric dabbing unit. Long lasting battery and temperature control allow the user to precisely dial in the proper dab temperature for amazing flavor every time. The customizable glass bubbler attachment has been all the craze in the glass market with amazing custom designs from glass artists all over the world. With so many great features it's no wonder this has been a top sought-after product from PuffCo.
 

Ccell Tanks & Batteries

Ccell Tanks And Batteries

 

Next on our list we have an upgrade to vape tanks and batteries with the new Ccell designs. Vaping has been all the rage this past year, and with so many vape styles and companies it can be hard to wrap your head around which vapes are right for you. Ccell tanks and batteries are a new design in ceramic heating, removing all the cotton and silica wicks. This improvement allows the user to really enjoy the flavors, whether it be nicotine juices or a vapable concentrates. With the same 510 threading allowing it to fit most vape batteries on the market like the Palm, LowKey, Exxus Snap, and Micro Wulf. With a compact design able to go where you go, Ccell vaping is pushing vape products to reevaluate the style and process of standard vape accessories. Check out the Hamilton Ccell Kit in this video below.

 

THeCan Desktop Dry Herb Vaporizer

THeCan Vaporizer

Next up we bring you a tried but true vaporizing system born and raised in the heart of the USA. THeCan Vapor Desktop Vaporizer is a fully ceramic radiant heating vaporizer system. Truly designed to vape your dry herbs without combustion and overheating. Manufactured in Denver, Colorado from the highest quality aircraft aluminum strong enough to be run over by a truck and keep on working (See Truck Runs Over THeCan here). The reverse style temperature knob means "On" is your highest temp, and you can reduce the temperature from there, eliminating any possible overheating of the ceramic unit or your product. Along with a lifetime warranty that is always taken care of right here in Denver, Colorado. Check out the video below to learn all about THeCan Vaporizer.

 

Heady Glass

Functional smoking glass has always been a sought-after commodity to the daily smoker. Not only for its beauty but also for its safer qualities while using it to consume products such as herb or dabs. In the last few years a more artistic view has taken the glass world by storm and has transformed the glass industry into a conglomerate of super heady glass, or functional art for the higher class. Anything from custom sculpture to wild scene scapes has been made to not only be a usable smoking piece, but also an artistic addition to anyone's art collection. Artist from all over the world like Casto, Tyme, Jmass, Swanny, Jerome Baker and more... have all contributed greatly to the new artistic look and feel of today's Heady Glass. Check out this tour of the Champs trade show featuring hundreds of artists from all over the world and their heady glass art.

 

Silicone

Silicone

Last but not least on this tour around the smoking kingdom is the use of silicone to make just about any smoking accessory you can think of. From pipes to bongs and even rigs and dab straws, silicone has been one of the most useful materials since the start of glass. With features like heat resistance and food grade safety or it's ability to bend and not break, silicone products have crashed the market and are here to stay. If you're tired of breaking your pipes, or need a travel piece for those on the go, silicone is sure to get the job done and keep going for many years to come.

 

So if you're looking to spend a little of that holiday cash and get yourself into some new arrivals, make sure to head on into your local Myxed Up Creations in Denver, Aurora, Colorado Springs, and Pueblo.

Let's check out a few of the many products we carry at Myxed Up Creations in this short video from Myxed Up TV.

 

Video Transcript

Hey guys this is Todd for Myxed Up. Today I'm going to talk to you about a company that we carry here in the shop it's named Raw. Raw carries everything from papers to tips, rollers, grinders, trays they pretty much have everything across the board for your smoking accessory needs. And the cool thing about Raw a lot of their papers that they do, everything is going to be an unrefined paper. So they do no bleach just like all the white papers you see out there. These are unbleached papers they also do an unbleached unrefined hemp paper as well, and you can get that in pretty much every size across the board. You've got your singles, your one and a quarters, one and a half's, king size, supreme kings, and they have literally everything you can think of.

 Raw Rolling Trays

A couple cool things that they've been doing lately that we've been picking up they have a 20 stage rocket. That guy carries 20 cones seven different sizes so there's a whole bunch in there. We also have a smaller one the 5 stage rocket. That guy has five different size cones kind of just Russian nested inside of each other. We have king size and one and a quarters in standard cones that you can stuff yourself with tips already. Rollers in all the sizes. Plus trays, you can get small trays all the way up to some pretty large ones. And another cool thing is if some of you are some fans, Wiz Khalifa has actually done a line with Raw, the loud packs, and he even has his own rolling tray. So that's a pretty nice one there but you can get all of these here at Myxed Up they even had a nice Santa Cruz shredder style Raw grinder which is very nice. Does a lot of really good work if you if you need the grinders.

 

A pretty cool thing if you're into it, if you want to smoke a couple cones at a time, they have a double-barrel and the Trident. You can literally put two or three cones in these guys and smoke them. Or if you just like a single cone I prefer these right here. They're a Raw glass tip basically. You can roll it into your jay and it doesn't get wet, doesn't get flat, doesn't spit on you so that's a really nice one. They also have king-size papers, little trays and things you can hold all your stuff in. So a really nice company they've been around for a while, from Spain. So come on down to Myxed Up pick up your stuff and then maybe we can smoke out together.

No More Torch, No More Butane, the Vista Mini Portable Dab Vaporizer Wins the Game

Technology has come far in the last decade, and why not into the cannabis industry as well? Introducing the Vista Mini by XVape. A fully portable electronic dab rig designed to take your dabs with you wherever you go, with all the convenience of dabbing at home. Super sleek design and a large ceramic coil create an elegance of use unmatched by most competing electric rigs, and the built in wireless charging base comes standard in evey Vista Mini. Check out this video below for a full breakdown and functional use of the Vista Mini by Todd from Myxed Up Creations.

 

Video Transcript

What's going on, everybody? Todd here from Myxed Up TV, and today, we're gonna be talking about the Vista Mini from XVAPE. It's a new style vaporizer. It's more of a portable dab rig. XVAPE was kind enough to toss it out to me, so today what we're gonna do, we're gonna open this bad boy up. I'm gonna show you all the different parts and the features of it, and we're gonna take a big old dab out and see how we like it. So, let's jump on into it, shall we?

So, when you first get your XVAPE Vista Mini, you'll notice when you open up the box there it's a pretty decent little box, it's gonna have a foam insert. You are gonna have your authenticity on the back here, so make sure that you're getting a true XVAPE. Let's go ahead, and we'll open up. You're gonna have a little card here, it's gonna tell you a bunch of the different features that actually come in this. This one has a couple different features here. So, detachable bubbler, pure taste, fantastic LED light, wireless charging, and three temperature settings. Pretty easy to do. It's got the quick start guide on here, but we're gonna get into it. So first here, you're gonna see on your user's manual ... you'll definitely want to keep a hold of this. It's gonna have everything that you're gonna need to know about your XVAPE inside of it. This one's got pretty much everything spelled out for you there, so we'll just run through the whole manual little bit by bit, and show you guys everything that comes in it.

Here it is. As you can see, your Vista Mini. I've got my vape here, pretty nifty little vape device there. This guy comes apart into different pieces, so totally cleanable. It's really nice. There's a glass carb cap there. You're also gonna get a funnel to put water in and out of your Vista. It's not necessary, but it does help a little bit if you need it. Then, we also have our mouthpiece. That's gonna come out too, nice little glass mouthpiece there. So, pull that out, then we have our accessories box. That's everything in the box. You probably want to keep that because it's a good little travel case to go along with everything.

In our accessory kit, it's gonna have all your other stuff. You're gonna have a coil in here, gonna have your charger. As you can see, a whole bunch of little things. Your little dab nail there. This is a ceramic one here, super, super nice. It's gonna come with some rubber silicons to keep everything from dropping off of your mouthpiece, but first thing. What I'm gonna do is I'm gonna take it apart for you so you can see all the little pieces, then we'll put it back together, fill it up with some water, and then we'll use it. Does that sound good? So, let's take our accessory box out. You're gonna get extra O-rings, so keep a hold of those. Extra silicone connectors, so these are actually nice holders. Make sure you keep those. You're gonna get your K-clip there which is really nice. It's actually meant to hold this. Here, we'll just actually pull it all apart.

So, your top part here, this actually just pulls straight off. It's just a push on and off. There's a nice little silicone ring that holds it on there. So, this is where you're gonna actually screw down your coil. Before we do that, I'm gonna go ahead and show you the rest of the step. So, if I unscrew this base here, you'll notice that the base where this all comes out. What's really nice, this is your bubbler tube here, so this is what your smoke is gonna be traveling through. That can get sticky and gunky, so very easy to pull apart. You could actually clean the entire thing, so you could go in and soak them if you want. That's just your little downstem there, so pull that out. You see here? This is your glass bubbler piece here. Very nice where your mouthpiece is gonna go in there, and then you have your base unit here, and that is basically your battery.

 

So, it does come with a micro USB charger here on the side. Probably the same as your phone unless you have an iPhone, but it also has a fun feature which if you use a charging dock station where you just lay down your cell phone or something like that, these will work on that. It doesn't come with the kit, but it's a generic device that you can get, so you can just set it down and it'll charge. I've actually charged this one up, so we should be ready to go. I'm gonna go ahead, and we've got our glass piece here. I've got a little bit of water here in this cup, and we're just gonna go ahead and pour a little bit of this water down into here. You can use your funnel if you want. You want to make sure that when you're putting your water in, you're going into the sides. You're not going into the center. If you put it in the center, it's gonna go down and hit your battery, and you don't want to do that.

It might even be easier for people, if you're a little bit afraid, you could fill it off just like this. So, you could see here, it's very simple. We're just gonna toss some water in and let it fill up. Now, you'll notice that there is a fill line on the battery here. It might be a little bit hard for you guys to see, but it's right there. There's a fill line, so when you put your glass bubbler back on top, you want to make sure you look through and you at least get above that fill line. If you fill it up too, too much, it'll end up pulling water back at you, and you don't want to do that. It'll end up being a straw. So, there we go. We've got our water in there. Make sure you're keeping it nice and straight so we don't get any water on anything else, and now that we've got our piece on there, I'm gonna go ahead. We're gonna take our top piece here, so this has a little O-ring that you can see. This little O-ring just came off, but it's not a big deal.

It just sits there anyway, and it's meant to keep both pieces so that they're nice and air tight once you just screw them down. So now that we have this piece on, and then we've got our O-rings situated ... I'm having some O-ring issues. It's okay. Just take a second here, put that back on. There we go. So, we got the O-ring on there nice. Put the bubbler down in here and then you go ahead and screw these two pieces together, and what that's doing now is actually pulling the two O-rings down and getting a nice tight seal that you can see there. So, now our downstem is in there, we got our water at a right spot. Time to take our coil.

So, I did get a chance to try this one out a little bit just to make sure that we would run through this okay. So, I've got a little bit of dab in there, but it's a ceramic style coil, and I'm actually gonna toss a little bit more in there. What's neat about this device is you can actually just drop in a couple dabs right into the device and it will automatically just stay there, and you can just dab it and dab it, and pass it around. We've got our coil screwed down there now onto the top of our base there. We're gonna take our cap here. Remember how I told you before? It just pulls off, so you just push it right back on there. Bam, very easy. So now, we've got our carb cap. You'll want to make sure that your carb cap is gonna go on top. We're also going to be using one of our silicon connectors here. And so this is what, you want to make sure you do this before you do anything else, because you don't want to drop your glass carb cap.

So, we'll go ahead and take this silicone, and we're just gonna pull it over on both of these little pieces here. Move that back out a little bit. There you go. So, you can see here it's like a silicone connector, and that comes in handy especially if you're taking a dab and it falls off or something. Makes it very convenient so that people don't lose it. We'll get into that in just a little bit, and now we got our mouthpiece. Mouthpiece goes on. Your K-clip is designed to keep your mouthpiece from coming out. What I really like that they did, this 14 millimeter glass on glass here, because what's really cool is if you've got a 14 millimeter hose for a vaporizer or something like that, you could actually put a big hose on this and you could just vape. You wouldn't have to actually hold onto it or anything.

Neat little thing there, but we're gonna take our K-clip. Just clips on just like that, so now my mouthpiece isn't gonna come out. We've already got everything set, and it looks like we're about ready to go. You're also gonna get a little dab tool here, a key chain XVAPE dab tool. Pretty, pretty nice. So, I'm gonna go ahead, and we'll turn on the unit and show you guys a couple of the features. So, I think it's one, two, three, and there we go. So, you can see now that it turned on. It's got a nice red light there. If I do two buttons, one, two, it changes the color. Each color setting is actually a temperature setting. The white is the lowest setting. I believe it runs around 200 degrees or so. We can look at it here. Oh, that was Celsius. So, 535 degrees is the white temperature. 662 is the green, so you tap it twice and it goes green, and then 752 is the high. So tap it twice and go to the red.

I'm gonna do a nice high dab for us today so we could actually see it work for us. So what I've done here, is I've brought in a little bit of dabs here from Dabbington Concentrates. Thanks Dabbington. I'm just gonna take a little bit of the dab and put it on here, and I like to put it in first and then heat it up. There's our little dab that we're gonna go here, and then I'm just gonna drop it right down into our coil here. So, I'll show you guys. You can see the dab down in there, and it's not started yet. We haven't started heating it, so we're gonna put our carb cap back on and then what I like to do is let it warm itself up. So, we tap it one time, it'll start flashing, and that's actually the function. It runs through a 20 second autoheat cycle, and then once it's a solid color again, it's done heating. So, you can hit the button again and it'll run through another session for you.

So, it's really nice to be able to just pass it around to friends, and it also has a off feature. As you can see, it shut itself down just for me right now. So, I'm gonna go ahead and one, two, three. We turn it back on, we're at the red setting. We've chosen our heat setting that we like, and I'm gonna hit it one time, and now it's gonna start to flash. So now as it's flashing, it's actually starting to melt the dabs on the ceramic coil there, and I can actually start to hit it.

Tasty. So, what's really nice about this is it's more of a true vape. You can see that we've already stopped our heating cycle. It's already run through, but if we wanted to hit it again and get a nice warmer hit, just turn it on again. Some people like to take long, drawn out, slow dabs and that's where you'll get your best flavors and biggest hits. Pretty simple device, right? Very straightforward. I think it's a really nice vape that you can get out there on the market. I'm not sure the pricing. I think we're probably selling these at about $180 or so. It might be actually a little bit less, but I'd have to look it up. I'm not actually sure of the price, but really enjoy this little vape. It's a cool little portable guy. True vape, so nice little 2,000 milliamp battery on this guy, and I believe it's gonna have a one year manufacturer warranty from your purchase date, so make sure that you keep your receipt for that guy.

The Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer

No Need To Smoke With The Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer

Designed for the toker on the go, The Avant Dry Herb Vaporizer by XVape uses a radiant style convection heating system to create a healthier alternative to the normal combustion style of smoking. Today Todd from Myxed Up is going to show us everything there is to know about the Avant, it's functions, and contents in this simple but convenient tutorial.

 

Video Transcript

What's going on everybody? Todd here, from Myxed Up TV, and today we're going to be talking about the Avant from XVape. It's a new style vaporizer that's out on the market. Super affordable. It's just for dry herbs, though. So what we're going to do today, I actually have this one, I'm here to test it and personally use it today. So we're going to open this up, I'm going to show you guys all the little parts and stuff inside, how it functions and it works. And then we're going to grind up, I've got some nugs here, we're going to grind these guys up, toss it inside of our vape and see how it works. So let's get right into it, shall we?

So at first glance, you're going to notice this box, it's a white top, red bottom. It's got the XVape authenticity label there on the back. You can pick these up at any of our Myxed Up shops, so it's pretty nice little unit here. I'm going to go ahead and open it up. You're going to need a user's manual to start out. So it's a pretty big user's manual, it's going to have both sides there as you can see. We're actually going to go through this a little bit today, just to show you all the different things.

So when you first look you're going to see your Avant right there, it sits inside of that little foam piece there. So you can kind of use it as a carrying case if you wanted. Really nice little unit there, super simple to use. So I have actually already been charging this unit. So you're going to want to charge the unit for about three hours when you first get it, just to make sure that the battery life is at full charge, and you're going to get a good vape to start out.

Other accessories that are going to come in your box, you're going to get a charger, a USB style charger, micro-charger. You're going to get some extra screens here, that you can see. For the mouthpiece and for the base. You're going to get ... Let's see here. Your USB cable, I'm going to pull that one out. USB cable. And you're going to get some cleaning tools.

So one thing you're going to want to remember about the Avant, make sure that you stay up on your cleaning. You don't have to clean it after every use, but the more often you clean it, the better the device will work and it'll last a lot longer. So you're going to have your little tool here, to put your product down in there if you want. You're going to have your little cleaning brush here to help you out.

So that's going to be pretty much everything that you're going to see when you first open up your box here for the Avant. So I'm going to go ahead and set this stuff aside. We'll keep the manual out here so we can actually go over a few of the different specs for you while we're in here.

So the Avant, it has four different ... One, two, three, four, five different temperature cycles! And so you can see there, it runs from the low 356 degrees Fahrenheit, to a high 428 degrees Fahrenheit. And so this is going to be more of a true vape. It's a convection style ceramic heating chamber. So your top here, it's all magnetic. You just pop your top off just like that, super simple. You'll notice here your two magnets, and you've got some silicone rubber O-rings, as well as where your screen goes for your mouthpiece cover, so you don't pull any of your product into your mouth.

It also is going to have your screen on the base there, one's already included there. And it's all ceramic chamber, so what's really neat about this is, your battery and heating coils and stuff are down here on the inside. And so these air holes on the sides here, when you breathe in the air comes in here, goes down past your heating chamber. Heat comes back up through, and then the air comes through the little holes there in the center. So you end up getting a really good vape experience.

The charging unit, like I said, is on a base. Micro USB, so it's probably the same as your charger at home. The battery life in general is, it's pretty decent. It's actually got at 1200 milliamp battery. So it's a little bit less than an 18,650, but you might be able to get some really good, decent time out of this. It does have some auto-shutoff features. So when you're using the device, it'll shut itself off after a time of like three minutes and 25 seconds, or so.

So when we get into our Avant, here. First thing I'm going to do is turn it on. So we're going to go ahead and tap the button here, one, two, three, four, five. Oh, it's just three. So three taps on the button, and you'll notice that the little light came on there. Here, I can turn it around for you there. One, two, three. It should flash at you there. And now I've just shut it off. So when I hit the button nothing happens.

So go ahead and turn it back on, one, two, three. You'll notice as it flashes, and that flash at the beginning is going to tell you the battery life that you have in the pen. Right now we are at the highest setting, temperature setting, 428 degrees. I do like to have it up that high when I vape, but you can change the temperature settings pretty easy. If you just hold down the button, I believe it's about five seconds or so, you'll see that it starts to switch between all the different settings.

So when you get to your desired setting that you want it on, we just go ahead and let it go. So when we're back on the high setting there, and we're at a 428 degrees. So, really neat little unit. I really like it. It's got a one year limited manufacturer warranty, so if anything happens to the device, like manufacturer style, the heating coil stops working, the battery doesn't work, little things like that. If it falls apart, if something was just awry, amiss when they put it together. It's going to be covered for that first year warranty from purchase if you have your receipt. Or if you don't have your receipt, then it's going to be from the manufacture date on these guys, which has been probably about three or four months now. So that one-year warranty will run out pretty quick.

I can feel this getting a little bit warm on the top, now that it's actually starting to warm up. I'm going to go ahead and tap the button three times and shut it off, just so that we can go ahead and get ready to fill it up. When we first go to use it, we're going to go ahead and pull off our mouthpiece here. Now, I've got some herb here that I'm going to be testing out here. I ended up with a ... So this is actually a CBD hemp that we were given at one of the trade shows that we were at. Somebody wanted us to carry this in our shop, but it's a "full-spectrum hemp", is what they call it. It smells pretty good, actually, just smelling it here on the table.

And one thing with grinding that you're going to want to remember is to grind your product really nice and finely for vapes. So what we're going to do today, I'm going to use our Flower Power Grinder here, super easy. I'm just going to take my nug here and we're going to toss it in here, I'm going to pull off some of these stems before I toss it all the way down there, just so we don't try and do that. But you can vape all of that just the same.

So put our lid back on, we'll go ahead and give this a good buzz. Pulverize it up there for us. Looking good. So, now that we've got all of that situated down there, we're going to go ahead, pull off our top here and I can dump all of our herb. I'm going to go head and dump it down on to this tray here, our nice Myxed Up rolling tray. Just to give you guys a little show, what we got. Just a little nug. I'm going to go ahead and use my silicone brush to brush out anything extra that might be in there. Not usually too much, but I keep my Flower Power Grinder pretty nice, just so it doesn't get too gunky over time. Those resins, you know how they work.

So now we've got our bud nice and ground, down here. I'm going to go ahead and we're going to just fill this chamber up here on the base. So it should be pretty simple to do. I'm probably just going to use a little card in the corner of this tray, and just push it right on in. I think that'll work just fine. It would be neat if they had a little loading thing for this, but it's okay. We don't need anything other than ourselves.

Alright, I've got some bud down into here. Some of my product. I'm going to go ahead, I'll use my little tamping too to kind of move everything in there. Now, make sure that you fill your chamber up all the way, a nice full chamber gives you a good vaping experience. And if you end up packing too much in though, then you could end up not being able to hit it too well. So you want to fill it, but you don't want to fill it to the point where you're not going to be able to close the lid, and you're not going to be pushing all the product down and smashing it in to where you're not going to be able to use it.

Alright, so we've taken some of our buds here, we have put our product into our little chamber there that you can see. Now all we're going to do is put our lid on. So we'll go ahead and put our magnetic lid on, it slide on just like that, super easy. Remember, like I said before, we're going to tap the button here three times, one, two, three. And you'll see that it's already turning on. Showed us our battery life there at the beginning, and now we're on our 428 degree, Fahrenheit, is where I like mine at. And so now, you don't have to hold a button down or anything, it's already warming the chamber for the vape. So you can pretty much go ahead and take a puff. So why don't we go ahead and see what it does?

Yeah. It's super light vape. It's still tasty though.

So you can see a nice and light true vape. So with it's highest setting I'm not getting a big smoke, I'm getting a lot of flavor profile from the product that we're using here. It actually tastes pretty good for just the CBD product. It tastes almost just like buds just without some of terp flavors that you might get. So super, super nice, I guess that they should taste like buds, they are buds, right?

So yeah, pretty decent. Yeah. So if you don't want to keep hitting it, and say you were going to pass this around to some friends or something, or you're just going to take a puff and shut it back off, instead of waiting for the 3 minute and 25 second countdown to shut off, you can actually just touch the button three more times, one, two three, it'll flash at you and then shut down everything.

So there we go, as you can see we've took a few puffs on that little guy, the Avant. When you're done with the Avant, what's really nice about a true vape, it'll probably start to taste a little bit similar to burnt popcorn when it gets towards the end. You can actually reuse a lot of your product. So you can use this for tinctures and lotions and stuff like that, throw it into your Magical Butter Machine or make some edibles or something with your extra. Save it, don't waste it because there's lots of other stuff. Because you're only vaping it, there's a lot of other product qualities that you can get out of your herb before you toss it. Or if you don't want you can just toss it.

But super, super nifty. I kind of like the size of it here, it's really, really neat. Kind of reminds me of the PAX, very, very similar to that. Functions very easy. So I hope you guys really enjoy this, this is the Avant. Super simple on and off, its temperature settings and everything. The price on these guys, I believe is only 80 dollars, 85 dollars. So you can get them online at MyxedUp.com, we've got them up there now. I'm not sure if we have the white ones, but we definitely have the black ones that we were getting. Super, super fun little vape, though.

So if you're just looking for a dry herb vape, something that's less carcinogenic, remember it's just going to be a true vape so you're just vaping it, it's not smoking. So it's still a really, really nice alternative to smoking if you want to try and do that. But other than that, I think it's a very, very unique system that you can use. So make sure you guys are checking that out. If you enjoy all of these, make sure that you go over and you subscribe, hit that subscribe button right there. We appreciate you, we're on all over the networks now. So as always, this is Myxed Up TV, I'm Todd, and we'll see you next time.
