ARC FLAMELESS LIGHTER

Only a few short years ago, it would have been hard to imagine that you would be able to light up a cigar or a carefully rolled cigarette without a flame, but that I what you can do thanks to the Arc Flameless Lighter.
The principal has been around for quite a long time now, in the form of the gas cooker lighter that can be seen in many kitchens to day. The great beauty of the Arc Flameless lighter is twofold; first it will light your smoke in even a gale force wind, but it also does not use any fuel, no butane or petrol, so there is no tainting of your cigar or cigarette.

One of the unique features of the Arc Flameless Lighter is the double arc which absolutely ensures that your anticipated cigar or cigarette is lit in an even and very quick manner. The manufacturers chose to make this lighter in Gun Metal or Icy Metallic, the choice is yours and can be seen at our web pages. It could not be easier to operate, just flip open the lid, press the button on the side and see for yourself the double purple plasma arc.

Users tell us that they get around 300 lights from a single charge, we supply a USB cable for re-charging and any standard USB port or wall charger either will quickly restore the battery to normal full state, you are ready to go again. No butane, no flints, no lighter fuel, all of this for £29.99 with very little further outgoing except a little electricity needed for topping up the battery.

Smoking Brown Thinnest Paper Rolls

We can offer a huge range of rolling papers all to be found on our web pages. However, we are happy to announce a new selection of unbleached, thinner papers which we believe will give a far more enjoyable un-tainted smoke using either your favourite tobacco or herbal mixture.

Smoking Papers is a brand that has been enjoyed by smoking connoisseurs for over a hundred and forty years, so they certainly know more than most about what makes a good rolling paper that continues to be enjoyed by many. When you are rolling a smoke the last thing that you want is your favourite mixture to be contaminated by the paper, which is why it is so important to have the thinnest paper to hold the tobacco or herbal mix. It should also not taint the smoke by using bleach.

Why not join the many others that enjoy a cool; untainted smoke by changing to Smoking Brown Papers.

Herbal Tobacco

There can be no doubt that Herbal Tobacco has taken off in a big way it is believed to be a safer way to enjoy a cool smoke and from reports that we have had back from some of our customers they tell us they would not consider going back the standard tobacco products.

Greengo is a very popular product from our friends in the Netherlands perfect on its own, but it does mix well with other smoking products which many have found enhances their smoking experience. The Herbal Tobacco has a great rich and spicy taste and is blended using a mix of papaya, hazel leaf, mint and eucalyptus, how cool is that? The Greengo Herbal Mixture is a really good choice for those smokers who wish to enjoy a smoke, but want to cut out completely their nicotine habit.

An old, but the much-loved favourite in the Herbal Tobacco market is Real Leaf, who have been supplying their smoking products since 2012, during which time they have become the undisputed leader in the field. Real Leaf also works really well if you wish to combine it with other smoking products. The nicotine-free favourite includes a subtle blending of % red raspberry leaves, marshmallow root, and mullein. The feedback we have from user indicates that it provides the smoker with a very delicate texture along with a very pleasant aroma.

As an alternative to the standard Rael Leaf Herbal Tobacco, we offer a Real Leaf with added Wild Damiana, giving the smoker that little bit of added extra. All of the products are offered on our web pages in 30g packs at £19.99.

OCB Crystal Rolling Machine

There is a definite knack to rolling a perfectly long cylindrical cigarette, some people can make it looks so easy, remember those wonderful old Westerns where the Cowboy makes a smoke using one hand? Some of us cannot manage it with two! However, the OCB Crystal Rolling Machine will make the perfect cigarette which will be hard to tell form a “tailor-made” one.

All that is required is a supply of your favourite tobacco or herbal mixture, suitable paper, a good one is the Classic No.8 or Mascotte Green Organics, filter if you prefer one and then, roll the two rollers together moisten the edge and open up, there is your neat home-rolled cigarette waiting for you to enjoy. It really is that simple and for the very attractive price offered on our web pages of £2.99, or you can buy two for only £5.00 and have a spare in the car, pocket or handbag, whilst you always have on at home or when out and about.

Neat enough to carry around at 26mm (w) x 26mm (h) x 78mm (d) light in weight too at only 22grams, or less than an ounce if you prefer. This neat rolling machine would make a perfect companion for the Clip Shot Tobacco tin.

Dynavap The “M” 2020 Edition

You may have been vaping for some time and are used to the convenience and pleasure, but now could you be looking for a vaporizer with that bit more panache? Recently added to our extensive range of vaping items that can be found on our web pages, DynavapThe “M” 2020 edition is certain to give you the hit that suits you.

This is because it now features a clever method of allowing you to control the air flow and it works by adjusting form closed when you will experience a thicker steam, but opening up the flow of ait means that will provide a softer steam.

Like its predecessor the “M” 2020 is constructed from medical grade stainless steel, features a faceted tip with airflow serrations, but unlike some others does not need a battery, which of course can run out of power just when you need a smoke! Any external heat source such as a cigarette lighter will ensure that it will deliver the hits.

We believe that the “M” is the very first vaporizer that can be heated up in less than a few seconds using a cigarette lighter, or any other flame such as candle, or even that little glowing ember as you sit around a campfire. Simple to use just load a tiny amount of ground herbs into the Dynavap “M” tip heat up until you hear the distinctive click, and then you are on your way to inhaling full flavoured smoking.

This is a very affordable and fantastic vaporizer offered by us at £79.99, why not add to your wish list or buy now whilst still in stock.

Unravelling the mystery of E Liquids

Vaping is the new and safer way to smoke and also to deliver the nicotine for ex cigarette smokers who still desire the pleasure that it can deliver. E Juice is the necessary part of using a vape product; this is what delivers the flavours that you choose to enjoy. As can be easily seen on our website, E Liquids come in many enticing flavours as well as differing strengths of nicotine, if the smoker decides to choose a flavour with nicotine added.

We have been asked what the make-up of the E Liquid is particularly the flavourings which we can confirm are produced from food based products. The range is quite wide and there are some interesting suggestions such as grape, blueberry or mango, for the really adventurous you can impress, or baffle friends with choices such as bacon or even cheesy nacho’s, now there is a crazy one maybe! Of course for many they prefer to go along with traditional tobacco flavoured E Liquids, the likes of many well-known tobacco company cigarette products are available.

We should mention the nicotine content here as this is the product in tobaccos that is addictive, no secret there, but vaping using nicotine based E Liquid has been successful in weaning ex tobacco smoker off the tobacco habit, this is achieved by a gradual reduction in the strength of nicotine added. Generally the strengths offered are 24mg, 18mg, 12mg, 6mg, 3mg and 0mg of nicotine per Millilitre of juice, meaning the user can choose how much nicotine they want to ingest.

So no matter what your preference may be, we at Shiva will have it, fruity your choice or possibly you prefer a more custard with a blob of jam. Check out our web pages for all things vaping and the essential Liquids to go with them.

Which Vape pen should I choose?

If you are venturing into the world of Vaping, then you will be amongst the many who may have decided to quit smoking cigarettes and go down the acknowledged safer route of using a vape pen or pipe, choosing the right one for you can be easier than you may have imagined.
There may be financial considerations when choosing your first vape pen, and as it is possibly the first time that you have used one then perhaps it is wise to choose a budget pen before moving on to something more sophisticated as there is a lot to consider.
It can be quite confusing understanding all the items associated with vaping. For example there is the resistance of the heating coil, 0.3ohm & 1.0ohm coils, atomiser as well as clearomisers and that is before you have to consider the increasing array of liquids, flavours and the strength of the nicotine, should you decide to continue to gradually wean yourself away from nicotine.

Unlike the ever-increasing cost of cigarette smoking, vaping can be much more affordable than perhaps you imagined or have been told. We have a wide selection of pens to get you started; branded and reliable vape pens from brands such as GrenCo, this company produces the Gumball 3000 hookah pen which is a really good starter pen with an excellent battery like and a big tank for your e-liquids and is manufactured by the world-famous GrenCo company; they also make a huge range of liquids and smoking accessories.
Hard though it may seem to users of the Atmos Optimus, the Atmos Optimus V2 is an improved version of the original, with a bigger tank, a better battery life, no more running out of battery in the middle of the day.

Once you have enjoyed the delights of vaping and using one of the two mentioned pens, it could be time to upgrade to something different and we can guide you down this road. For example, KangerTech is well-known market leaders right from the very start of vaping using pens many years ago. We will be happy to discuss the many options available and as always Shiva will be here to offer advice and of course quality vaping products.
