Screen Queen Deluxe Screenless Pipe

The main thing that most of us want when lighting up and enjoying a pipe of tobacco or herbs, is a cool clean smoke, the Screen Queen Deluxe Screenless Pipe is designed to provide just that. This pipe is certainly one of the most reliable, easy to use, and easy to clean and generally provides a great smoke, according to the feedback from users have said when they have reported back to us.

The removable bottom of the bowl acts as a screen or gauze, which means that no additional screen is needed. Removing the screw in plug at that bottom of the bowl ensures that the user can clean it with ease and it also means that when in use provides good airflow for the perfect burn, as it helps keeps ashes and plant material from obstructing the airway. From around the time when pipes first came upon the scene, one thing that smokers preferred was a long stem; this meant that the smoke was cooled prior to reaching them; this as we know ensures a pleasurable smoke. This is something the Screen Queen Deluxe offers with its long stem, cooling the smoke as well as catching a lot of the tar that you would otherwise inhale, again easily cleaned using a long pipe cleaner.

Offered in a choice of colours, blue, bronze, green, red black or silver and presented in its own hinged box, this is a pipe for the connoisseur that guarantees: No screen or gauze needed, sleek in appearance, easy to take apart, clean and reassemble, with a guaranteed even burn.  Put simply this pipe is amazing.

Spirit Vaporizer by Storm

Users of the original Storm Vaporizer will testify that it was a very reliable product which delivered a great hit to the user, but the latest from Storm is even better. They have built on the success of the original vaporizer, but have added some great new features, whilst retaining the famed reliability as well as portability.

A new feature which will certainly be welcomed by vapers is the addition of a high capacity 18650 battery, which offers you up to an hour and half of vaping time, this is double that of the original, plenty for most of us, but with the battery being easily changed, should you need more vaping time then changing the battery with a fully charged one is simple.

Loading the Spirit is very easy, and the ceramic oven handles ground herbs excellently, vaporising them in a uniform and efficient manner, and by choosing the optional Spirit Resin Capsule, this allows you to use sticky pressed resins within your Spirit Vaporizer and protects the ceramic bowl from any melted remnants, or if you prefer, choose the liquid pads which allows you to use waxy, oily or crystalline concentrates in your Spirit Vaporizer.

Users all agree that the Spirit is also extremely efficient: its oval chamber is designed to pass maximum airflow through your herbs, for easy rips of dense vapour, plus the removable mouthpiece, which is made from Ceramic Zirconia. This is strong and super smooth for a comfortable feel that preserves taste, it is an excellent thermal insulator, which draws most of the heat out of the vapour as it travels to your mouth, ensuring that you always get a smooth cool hit from the vapour.

Measuring only 11cm tall x 3.5cm wide x 2.2cm deep, perfect pocket or handbag size this latest vaporizer from Storm, which combines digital temperature control and smart, slim pocket-friendly design with the same reliability, quality of build and swappable high-quality 18650 battery, all of this has ensured that the Spirit by Storm is a global success story.

Atomic Folding Portable Silicone Bong

There can be few of us that have not had a spot of back luck with a glass bong, especially when taking it to friends for a party. It just seems that no matter how careful we may be, we drop it or somehow manage to break it, with the inevitable result that not only do we end up losing a smoking accessory, but we are then tasked with cleaning up a bunch of glass and bong water.

Well that will not happen when you take the new Atomic Folding Portable Silicone Bong to the party, it is easily folded and made from medical grade silicone and available in six vibrant colours. We have to say that nothing can compare to a super glass bong, but although it may seem strange to hold onto a silicone stem instead of your usual glass bong, but don’t be fooled by that, the smoke is excellent. These medical grade silicone bongs are extremely durable, and they are remarkably easy to clean with soap and water and they will not slip out of your soapy hands and shatter in the sink, like glass sometimes does, it folds up into a small pocket size, held in place with the strap.

Unlike the more traditional glass based bongs which usually stay indoors, the Atomic Folding Portable Silicone Bong, is great to just throw in your bag on the move, making it the perfect travel companion, just take it to party, in fact anywhere, perfect peace of mind that you will not be breaking your expensive piece of smoking glassware when out on adventures.

Available in Black, Green, Orange, Red, Pink and Blue, these colourful bongs are perfect for anyone on the move, or who could be described as being just a bit on the clumsy side!

UK heart disease deaths fall by over 20% since indoor smoking ban

Friday the 30th of June marks an anniversary that has been hailed by some as a victory for common sense, whilst others vehemently disagree and claim it violates their “human rights”, but whichever camp you may fall into, there are some facts that have to be welcomed following the decade of the smoking ban in enclosed public places being introduced in England.

It was “north of the border” in Scotland where the indoor smoking ban was introduced two years previously, Wales and Northern Ireland followed later in April 2007 England followed in June that year. Proponents of the ban claim that as a result deaths from heart disease and strokes caused by smoking have fallen dramatically since lighting up in pubs, restaurants and other enclosed public places in England was banned 10 years ago. Although the “anti-smoking” lobby are sure to point out that the falls from heart attacks and other cardiac conditions, which have dropped by over 20% since 2007 while fatalities from a stroke are almost 14% down, are down to non-smokers not being subject to second hand smoke, could it be down to the numbers who have decided to quit. Smokers have seized the opportunity by quitting in unprecedented numbers and of those still smoking, half have chosen to smoke outside their own homes, and increasingly smokers are turning to E-Cigarettes so that they can enjoy the pleasure of a cigarette.

Figures from Public Health England (PHE) tell us that there were 32,548 deaths from heart disease attributable to smoking in 2007-09, there were 25,777 between 2013 and 2015, which is a fall of 20.8%. Similarly, a total of 9,743 smokers died from a stroke in 2007-09, the figures for 2013 and 2015, are less, a drop of 14.5%.

These figures support the claim by Duncan Selbie, PHE’s chief executive; he has hailed the figures as proof of the ban’s huge beneficial impact on health.  He went  on to comment in the Guardian newspaper: “The law has played a key part in the huge cultural change we have seen in the past decade, especially among younger people, a change that has literally saved thousands from disabling chronic diseases and premature death.” Naturally the figures are very welcome, but we are told that smoking still accounts for about one in every six deaths in England.

Smoking brand thin rolling paper – for a smooth smoke!

It does not take a lot of imagination, even for a non- smoker to understand that when a person relaxes with a personally rolled cigarette, they want to flavours of the tobacco, or herbal mixture to be at the forefront and not the paper that is used to prepare the cigarette.

Connoisseurs practiced in the art of rolling a cigarette have their own personal preferences concerning the papers which they use; Smoking Papers have long been a favourite with many because of their quality and consistent quality. Recently released are what are described as the thinnest and they are in fact 20% thinner than their previous thinnest papers. These are without doubt potentially the thinnest on the market.

Weighing in at only 10g/m2, combining maximum transparency with optimum strength, they are super ultra-thin rolling papers and are available in various sizes and formats. We know that Rolling Paper on a roll has always been popular, but no rolling paper brand has managed to do an ultra-thin paper, that is until Smoking came along and introduced this latest 4 metres in one pack of this super ultra-thin paper!  The roll of paper has been watermarked with Smoking’s logo; the paper burns very evenly and slow, and uses only 100% natural vegetable gum ensuring when you lick the king size slim each paper sticks first time, every time. As they say: it’s so thin it could almost fly and the Smoking product is FSCA certified, with no colouring or other additives.

So if you just want to smoke less paper and who wouldn’t, then have a look at Smoking thinnest rolling papers, a “steal” at just £1.50!

Mix ‘N’ Blitz 55mm Isotope Sifter Grinder

Before we can enjoy a cool smoke in our Chillum, Pipe or Bong, we have to get down to the serious business of preparing our favourite herbs.

We offer many grinders, a number of these have a collection department or filter to make the separation easier. A recent addition to our collection is the Mix ‘N’ Blitz 55mm Isotope Sifter Grinder which features super sharp teeth grind up your ingredients in seconds making your herbs more manageable.

Smoking ban outside Brighton’s restaurants and pubs proposed

The crackdown on those people who enjoy the pleasures of a smoke continues; smokers are very aware of the ban on smoking in public places such as restaurants and pubs. Some smokers actually agree that enjoying a cigarette, pipe or cigar after a meal, whilst being a wonderful experience to them, can cause discomfort to others who may still be eating.

However, authorities in the Sussex seaside resort of Brighton and nearby Hove are taking things a step further, which is a step too far in many peoples estimation. This time they are proposing that cafes, restaurants and pubs with outside eating areas will be asked to consider introducing a voluntary smoking ban and it is all part of a move by city council and NHS bosses in Brighton and Hove to help reduce the impact of smoking in the city.

This move follows on from a consultation that was run by the council in 2015, asking people for their views about smoking in public spaces outside. A majority of those people who were asked supported the idea of banning smoking in those restaurants and pubs with outdoor seating, which they suggested should be smoke free. The other suggestion that smoking should be banned in parks and on the beaches was thrown out, respondents to the survey considered that it was anti-social to smoke where people are eating and drinking.

Already moves are afoot to begin the ban and following interviews conducted on twelve businesses, including cafés, restaurants and pubs from the North Laine, Brighton Marina and city park areas, ten have indicated that they support the idea.

The suggestion is a voluntary one and unlike the national ban on smoking in public places indoors, there is no legislation to impose a ban on outdoor areas, but because the concept is entirely voluntary, many business owners are very sceptical and some are concerned that they could lose loyal customers. One business owner already asks smokers not to smoke near children and to move away if any were near.

Brighton’s Pavilion Gardens Café is run by David Sewell, in a comment he said that although he had never smoked in his life, you must be aware of what the customers want, for example if it was a blanket ban and not a voluntary arrangement it would be easier to enforce it. For example, he went on, “If every café decided to introduce a ban then we would follow suit but if you are on your own then it could lead to you losing customers who come every day. You either say no smoking at all, or in this case ask them to use their common sense.”

Needless to say the proposal had a mixed reaction from people in the seaside resort, as you may expect, because the majority now appear to be non-smokers, most comments are in favour of the proposal, but it also has brought out the usual comments that are not related in any way to smoking, such as tables on pavements. But one cynic has retorted by saying: “Yes, we must protect people from a small amount of cigarette smoke whilst totally ignoring the masses of toxic diesel fumes belching out of the buses, taxis, vans and lorries in the city centre.”

Atomic Silicone Pipe

This silicone pipe is a recent addition to our collection of pipes and smoking devices and we are quite excited about, we feel sure that judging from responses we have had, you are too. We have been used to using borosilicate glass pipes for many years and the smooth experience of using them is not in question, but how does the silicone pipe compare?

If you are unsure about silicone, the first thing to say is that it’s similar in shape to its glass cousins though fashioned from medical grade silicone. Silicone is also lighter than glass, which makes it perfect for taking the pipe out and about, it is also a fairly easy to clean as simple as a quick wipe down with an alcohol wipe and as we all know a a clean pipe is a happy pipe.

The Atomic Silicone Pipe is both fun and durable, it is available form us in a selection of colours, both striped as well as solid. It features a removable spill-proof silicone lid; these simple, pocket-size pipes also include a built-in 15cm screen.

This pipe is really an “atomic” pocket sized beauty and weighs in at just 12 grams packing that right amount of weight to satisfy your needs; pocket sized at less than 10 mm in length, proving again that size simply does not matter!

Choose your Atomic Silicone Pipe from either solid coloured, or striped colour, or as they are offered at only £4.99, why not choose one of each?
