    The Odin Comes to New Zealand

    The Odin Comes to New Zealand

    The Odin is a sweet, full convection herbal vape with great form, power and efficiency. It is the perfect mix of high convection heat and superior battery life. A great piece to have around.

    The Odin has an extremely high build quality, a fully isolated air path, a high tech fluted spiral convection air heating path, an in chassis mouthpiece storage area, digital heat regulator, OLED screen and light weight aluminum frame.

    It is a very impressive unit. We have been battle testing the Odin for weeks while working with Mike from Topbond, the inventor of the Odin. We are in love with it. It looks awesome, has a great heft in the hand, the battery life is very good and the performance has been stellar. And at $164.69, it is a great deal.

    All hail the Odin! (a great god to make sacrifices to)


    Herbal Atomizer- The Mr. Bald T

    Herbal Atomizer- The Mr. Bald T

    A herbal atomizer is a sophisticated tank specially designed for vaping medical marijuana or marijuana dry herbs, concentrates, waxes and oils, where it’s legal, without the side effects caused by combustion.

    Like all good atomizers the Mr. Bald T is made of ceramics, stainless steel and high-quality glass, which are sturdy and safe. The addition of glass not only looks nice, but it also allows you to watch the vapor flow from chamber to mouthpiece, which is pretty amazing.

    No matter vaping for medicinal purposes or for recreation, all you want to do is just relax. The most annoying thing for a vaper is having to refill the tank as soon as they start enjoying their vape. The Mr. Bald T has a large heating chamber will hold more concentrates so you can go for longer between refills.

    Just make sure the tank is compatible with your mod, it will work with most, but not all. The Mr. Bald T has a 510 thread and the mod must be able to produce 19-30W. If you use more than 30W it will short out the ceramic heating dish, a spare one comes with the unit.

    Interview with the Vapman

    Interview with the Vapman

    We here at Vape Mate got a chance to talk to this guy, René Balli the inventor and craftsman behind the Vapman vaporizer, and he is awesome.

    Rene created the most unique vape on the market and turned it into a global business. Helping people enjoy their herbs with a tight and efficient little machine.

    He was nice enough to run us through the ideal operation of the Vapman and give us his five tips on it’s use.

    • Squeeze- The proper way to open the egg shaped carrying case is to give it a gentle squeeze at the seam and it pops open. We had been trying to twist, like a bunch of idiots, so this one was really helpful.
    • Don’t Stress- Try not to stress the mouthpiece and golden cone part or it could become misaligned from the optimal position. Don’t carry the Vapman unprotected in your pocket or backpack, use the carry case and you’ll be sweet.
    • Don’t Overflow- The Vapman is super efficient and effective but it’s not a party bowl you can fit an 8th in. A good pinch of fine ground product will do the trick, any more and you won’t get a good seal and it will stress the retaining clips.
    • Tip to Tip- The tip of the blue flame from the torch lighter should just touch the tip of the gold cone, and only for a few seconds. We had been swirling and waving the thing all over the place, incorrect says Rene. The gold plated copper cone is a hyper efficient heat conductor, holding it steady on the tip will allow it to heat quickly and evenly.
    • Mop it up- Empty the Vapman while it’s still warm and try to give it a quick wipe out  to keep the cone and screen clean and pristine for life. Leaving the product in while it cools will cause some residue buildup.

      Rene says that the Vapman is like driving a fine car or making a great cup of coffee, it takes some practice and attention but it’s worth the effort, we very much agree.

      Thank you Rene!

      With the recent shift in attitude regarding the consumption of cannabis plants, by now, most people have heard about the prominent chemical found in cannabis sativa-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC). This is the ingredient most sought after in cannabis plants, as it produces a euphoric high among other psychoactive effects for the user. Lately, however, the conversation has been turned over to a different part of the plant, cannabidiol, or CBD.

      This ingredient is every bit as present in cannabis plants as THC, and while the levels do tend to vary from plant to plant, it is typical for around 40% of any given cannabis plant to contain CBD. However, with the ability to engage in selective breeding, growers are able to allow the controversial, psychoactive ingredient, THC, levels to fall to almost nothing, while allowing CBD to become the main make-up of any given variety of plant. This lets medicinal users of cannabis harness the healing properties of the plant without any potentially unwanted side effects from the THC, as CBD is non-psychoactive.

      CBD acts on different pathways of the body, as opposed to THC, as we have seen by testing this agent on animals. Instead of almost solely affecting the mind, as THC does, CBD treats a plethora of bodily symptoms, such as nausea reduction in cancer patients. CBD is often sought out as an assistant in the repression of seizures as well. In several cases, certain, usually incurable types of seizure disorders, such as childhood epilepsy and Dravet syndrome, have been either cured completely, or the seizures have been reduced dramatically with the help of CBD.

      CBD also contains anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in the relief of menstrual cramps, tension headaches, joint pain, as well other symptoms of inflammation. CBD’s analgesic properties are paramount, and in certain instances, have been able to eliminate the user’s dependence on prescription opioid compounds. This is a much safer and non-addictive alternative to everyday pain fighting pharmaceuticals.

      On top of its numerous physical health benefits, CBD has an advantage over the mental health world. It provides relief from the sometimes crippling symptoms of a variety of mental illnesses, such as anxiety and psychosis, and clinical trials have begun in the United Kingdom for treating schizophrenia. All of those wonderful benefits aside, perhaps the most popular reason the recent push for completely legal use is the ability for CBD to act as an active combatant against tumor growth and cancer cells.

      CBD comes in many forms. One may find the desired ingredient in any given cannabis flower (commonly known “green stuff” you see everywhere), or one may prefer to have it extracted and made into hashes and oils (where it is legal to use it, of course). For the flower, ingestion is best without combustion; therefore using an herbal vaporizer is your best bet for consumption of this aspect of the plant. For other, more preferred mediums, such as concentrates and oils, you may take it in a capsule, although it is ideal to use a concentrated oil vaporizer, or an oil vaporizer pen. Inhalation of the vapors delivers the CBD to your system virtually instantaneously, rather than waiting for the digestion process. Having a portable vaporizer for CBD lets you get relief wherever you go, like you would with aspirin. CBD is also free of tar, making CBD oil an even safer alternative in a vape!
