Who, What, Where, and When? All You Need to Know About Black Friday

Posted on Oct 19, 2018

Black Friday, you may remember it as a series of televised riots over slightly cheaper dryers, but have you ever wondered exactly where it comes from?

Of course, Black Friday wasn’t invented to incite riots, we have systemic inequality for that!

Why Wax Pen Vaporizer Will Dominate 2019

Posted on Aug 24, 2018

What is Wax? Wax is a form of solvent concentrate. It is made through a process that uses a solvent, usually butane, to push the various active ingredients of herb out of the plant matter. Once this is done it is important to remove all the solvent from the solution. This is done by boiling it off. Obviously, butane is an explosive chemical, so it isn’t a great idea to have it around high temperatures, so to avoid any explosions its necessary to use a vacuum oven.  The vacuum oven lowers the air pressure around the solvent mixture, lowering its boiling point to a safe temperature, once the solvent has been boiled off you’re left with one of three results. Oil, a runny, honey-like chemical; Shatter a brittle, potent concentrate; and of course,... Read more »
