I was enjoying a great solo vaping session in the warm Jamaican sunshine yesterday and I started thinking about who came up with the idea to vape in the first place and the general origins of vaping. As I didn't have the answers to these questions I did a little online research and what I found out was kinda cool so I wanted to share a summary here with you guys.

As it turns out it was back in the 1960’s when smoking cigarettes was so popular that everyone and their mom was doing it. that this guy named Herbert A. Gilbert ( do you think his friends called him herb?) came up with the idea for an electronic cigarette and patented it. The idea didn’t catch on, unfortunately for Herb, until several years later in 2003 when Chinese medical researcher Hon Lik got got super frustrated with his nicotine addiction to cigarettes. In his desperate search for a way to end his dangerous addiction he was inspired by a dream to work on a way to enjoy vapor instead of the harmful smoke and the rest is history.

So as it turns out that vaping came to us by way of cigarettes and I didn't see that one coming. In any case it is good that thanks to men like Herb and Hon we are able to enjoy vaping and all its amazing benefits.

A Vaping Tip For Beginners

Hello vaping newbies and enthusiasts! Today while doing some vaping Jamaican style I got the inspiration to share a vaping tip for persons who are new relatively to vaping. My tip is this: no matter how much of a smarty pants tech person you think you are, even if you have used vaporizers before - always read the instruction manual before you use a vaporizer for the first time. Every vaporizer is different and knowing the correct way to operate yours can seriously affect the quality of vapor that you get from your device.


I suggest that you go over the user manual in detail and familiarize yourself with all its features. Manuals are very useful and they will show you how to get the most out of your device. Too many people don’t know exactly what their devices are capable of and end up missing out on some cool stuff. Don’t miss out! Read the instructions that come with your vaporizer pen and enjoy a better quality vaping session every time.

Dry Herb VS Oil & Wax Vapor Pens

One question I get asked fairly often by people who are looking to get a new vapor pen is, should they get the ones that use dry herbs or the ones that use waxes and oils? There is no one answer  however, it all depends on a few factors. For me for example, here in Jamaica dry herbs are much more available and more affordable so I prefer to have a dry herb vaporizer.  In my situation price and availability are the two major factors at play but in a situation where, for example, someone who prefers to use oils for their typically higher concentration of THC would then it would be this personal preference that will act as the determining factor. The good news is that there are a few vapor pens on the market that can actually do it all - dry herbs, waxes and oils. If you are having trouble deciding what type to get and you have equal access to all oils, waxes and dry herbs then you will do well with one of these very versatile models.

Clean Your Atomize Regularly!

The summer is upon us and here in Jamaica we are feeling the heat like never before. The temperature in Kingston today is a sizzling 92 °F but I am not complaining because I will choose warm weather over freezing cold climates anyday. On a day like today when I have no work and nothing much else to do my favorite past time is - you guessed it, vaping!


To be honest on any day vaping is my favorite thing to do :) Today I want to share with you a little tip on how to clean your vapor pen if you have one. Keeping it clean is essential if you are to get the most value out of it and also keep it around for a long time. You should ideally do at least some light cleaning on your vapor pen after every use. This will prevent any of the herbs, oils or waxes that you use with it from building up.


A clogged atomizer can really reduce the quality of the hits that you get so pay special attention to this piece when you are cleaning. It is very small so you may find it handy to use a dab tool or Q-tip to get out all the build up. Be gentle when you are cleaning it. This type of regular cleaning will keep your vapor pen working like new every time!


Stay tuned for more helpful vaping tips, tricks and stories.

It’s been just over two year since I was first introduced to vaping and in this relatively short time, my life has truly changed. Yes it is a healthier way to enjoy marijuana, but vaping is also a lifestyle. And it is a better lifestyle. Before I used to smoke marijuana cigarettes or blunts and I was in no hurry to change and adopt any of the trending vaping devices that everyone seems to be talking about these days. I resisted the temptation to vapor for quite sometime as it just didn't seem like my ‘thing.’ Fortunately I gave into a friend one day, gave vaping a try and it is now my favorite way to get my daily THC buzz.

 

My body just feels cleaner now that I am vaping and have given up consuming ½ burnt marijuana. The vapors smell different too, to me they smell much better and more fragrant … or perhaps just not burnt. Either way, the fact that i can still get a buzz without putting my throat and lungs under any unnecessary risk is just awesome. Vaping is just a better way to savour the benefits of THC. If you aren't already vaping, maybe it’s time you seriously considered dropping your potentially harmful smoking marijuana habit and start shopping for a nice vaporizer.

Introduction to Vaping in Jamaica

Vaping Jamaican Style

The sunny island of Jamaica provides a unique experience for marijuana enthusiasts and weed lovers everywhere. Although the legal status of the plant on the island is somewhat obscure (we will clarify this a little later) you don’t have to look too hard to realize that the Jamaican people, for the most part, have fully embraced marijuana as a part of their culture.

The music, the people, the ‘island vibes’, it all comes together like a beautiful song and makes it hard to find another country on the planet (The Netherlands would be a very close second) that is better suited to enjoy vaping. The love and acceptance that the people have the fragrant herb is only one reason that vaping Jamaican style is such an awesome experience. Let’s take a look at some of the other reasons in more detail:

The Marijuana is Abundant

You will be able to find marijuana very easily almost anywhere on the Island. City and tourist centers have the herb in abundant supply all year round. As can be expected, it will not be as easily available in the smaller towns and villages but if you know where to look you will find it. Most locals, even those who do not vape or smoke marijuana will be able to tell you where you can get some. This abundant supply of marijuana means that you will always have enough to enjoy your vaping sessions.

Oils & Waxes Too!

Most of the marijuana you will find for vaping in Jamaica will be in the dry herb form but if you are the type who prefers to use extracts like oils or waxes for your vaping sessions - worry not! Vaping is becoming increasingly more popular in Jamaica and as a consequence oils and waxes are becoming more available as well. It cannot be denied, however, that dry herbs are currently much more easy to get on the island, so if your vaporizer is designed to use them it will be more convenient for you.

The Marijuana is Affordable

The cost of marijuana in Jamaica is very cheap when compared to what you will pay in, for example, the USA. With the prices being so affordable you will be able to get more marijuana for more vaping sessions and you can even have several friends vape with you guilt-free as there will be more than everyone to have an ‘irie’* time. In the United States an ounce of marijuana will set you back at least $200, but in Kingston, Jamaica you can pay about $10. In the areas that get a lot of tourist action like Montego Bay on the north coast of the island the prices do tend to be higher, up to about $50 per ounce.  

Reggae Music

Imagine you are on a white sand beach with the sounds of Bob Marley softly playing on a rhythmic reggae beat off in the background while you take a hit from your vape pen. This dreamlike scenario is the daily reality for many people who vape on the island paradise of Jamaica. Music seems to be everywhere on the island, in the streets, in cars, in the markets. There is always some music playing somewhere in earshot and most of the time it is that sweet reggae music that you will hear. There is no better musical accompaniment to enhance a vaping session than reggae music with it’s calm, easy, hypnotic beats.

The Marijuana is High Quality

You will be sure to get that high feeling that you are after in your vaping sessions. Most of the marijuana that is available for vaping in Jamaica was grown organically outdoors in the warm Jamaican sunshine. It is not grown indoors under carefully controlled conditions like most of the marijuana that you will get in the USA but you will still be able to get amazing feelings of euphoria that feel more authentic and natural for your vaping sessions. Many vaping enthusiasts prefer to use this type of organic herbs this reason.

Marijuana is Legal

Is marijuana legal in Jamaica? Less than a year ago the answer would have been ‘Yes’ but fortunately for marijuana lovers on the island on July 15, 2015 the government of Jamaica relaxed the laws relating to marijuana so that persons found with 2 ounces or less of the herb will no longer face criminal charges. Instead they will be faced with having to pay a civil fine of $5 with no criminal record or arrest.

Persons who are visiting the island and have a medical recommendation for the use of marijuana will be able to obtain a permit allowing them to possess up to 2 ounces of the herb. All this means that you will be able to relax and vape Jamaican style with a clear conscience - as long as you ensure that you don’t have more than 2 ounces in your possession at any given time.   

Island Vibes

Another element that makes vaping in Jamaica so awesome is what may be called the ‘island vibes’. This is not so easy to explain what island vibes are because they are something you feel not something you can taste or touch. It has to do with the easy way of life on the island. No one ever seems to be in a hurry here. The friendly nature of the people and the warm tropical climate all contribute to the island vibes and help to make Jamaica ultra suitable for extraordinary vaping experiences.

Conclusion

Vaping Jamaican style is truly a one-of-a-kind experience that you just won’t be able to authentically replicate anywhere else in the world. The relaxation and peace that you will have vaping in this country where it is no longer a criminal offense is something that many people never thought they would experience in this lifetime. Thankfully, today it is something that marijuana lovers can enjoy daily on this vibrant little island. Vaping Jamaican style is a truly pleasurable experience and every marijuana enthusiast should be lucky enough to be able to do it at some point in their life.
