How to Make Your Own Cannabis Vape Oil

October 8, 2018

I personally consider vape oil pens to be the future of cannabis vaporization. They are inexpensive, discreet, small and very easy to operate…some just require you to puff away! They consist of an oil cartridge and a pen-shaped battery. You can see some these here: Oil Pen Vaporizer (Button-less) or Oil Pen Vaporizer Variable Voltage. However, the cannabis […]

How NOT to Get Too Stoned

One of the biggest concerns of people starting cannabis use is: how do I stop myself from getting too high”? Should I just take the advice of friends, a ‘bud-ista’ or a workmate? Personally, I think this is a very legitimate and understandable worry: unless you know how to use cannabis properly, there is a […]

The Story of U.P.

The short story (because I don’t want to bore you senseless with the long story…I’m not quite that interesting!): Although being engaged in the day-to-day operation of Soothing Vapours, I am still working a ‘day job’ simply because the money is too good to quit. And while cannabis will/has become legal in Canada on 17th […]

O.K, you’ve made the decision; you are going to try cannabis for the first time. You have lots of questions: where do I find some weed, what type do I want, how do I consume it, what will it do for/to me, how do I keep control? Let’s have a quick look at these and […]

Microdosing with Cannabis

  The term ‘microdosing’ in cannabis circles means ingesting small amounts of THC (the psychoactive component in cannabis) than might be used for purposely getting high. It is thought that the threshold for the medical benefits of THC is far lower than many people previously believed. This approach was originally developed for hallucinogenic drugs such […]

Why I Don’t Like to Call it ‘Marijuana’

August 25, 2018

You might notice that the word ‘marijuana’ is conspicuously absent from my writing. This is completely intentional. I personally believe that this word is the ‘slave name’ of cannabis, chosen specifically to demonize this herb in order to target specific ethnic groups and further the blatant self interests of government and big business. Cannabis hemp […]

What Strain of Cannabis is the Right One for Me to be Vaping?

Selecting the right strain of cannabis for your medical or recreational needs can be a daunting task. Current databases of strains indicate over 1500 names but no one can say for certain exactly how many actually exist. New strains are created through cross-breeding, some go extinct quietly and some are simply renamed for various, often […]

How to Vape Hash

August 17, 2018

(Based on ‘Easy Organic Weed’ by Bill Griffin) Like many Canadians (especially those living near seaports) growing up in the 70s, I have a soft spot for hashish. It wasn’t always the easiest to come by but, when you did, it was like God had personally smiled upon you. Hashish has been made for thousands […]

How Do I Get Down from Here?

Many years ago, a friend and I decided to try cooking with cannabis for the first time. We took about 30 grams of rather stony homegrown herb, ground it up fine, heated it in a frying pan to release the oils and then bunged it into a maple walnut Snackin’ Cake. The result was a […]

Health Benefits of Cannabis for Boomers

First, let me say that I do have a personal interest in this topic as I am rapidly approaching my own ‘seniority’.

Looking for Spare Parts?

August 14, 2018

Need a new battery, mouthpiece, screen, o-ring, charger pack,coils or other consumable/optional parts?

However, we DO have an amazing collection of wholesalers with whom we do business on a regular basis. […]

Why Am I Not Seeing Any Vapour?

July 31, 2018

When I first started vaporizing (after decades of smoking cannabis), I was puzzled, and a bit concerned, that I wasn’t seeing the clouds of vapour that I was used to exhaling. Was I doing it right? Was the vape working properly? WTF?!! But I could still taste this magnificent flavour in my mouth…what was going […]

What the Hell is a Terpene and Why Should I Care?

Over the last couple of years, terpenes have been mentioned with much more frequency among cannabis consumers. If you asked a botanist, “what are terpenes” they would most likely tell you they are in the essential oils of plants. Furthermore, they are aromatic organic hydrocarbons.

What is ‘VAS’…and What Can I Do to Cure It?

The signs of ‘VAS’ can be seen in many vaporists. Vaporizer Acquisition Syndrome is the apparently incurable need to acquire new and exciting vaporizers. ‘Crohnie’ from the Fuck Combustion (yes, that’s it’s real name) forum accurately describes the signs of syndrome thusly: Credit card pain Sudden mood swings, i.e. going from joy to despair and […]

What are Oil Vaporizing Pens and Why Would I Want to Try One?

Vaporizer pens were originally designed for use with nicotine products, though they quickly found a home in the booming cannabis industry. Oil vaporizers have exploded in popularity as the potency and flavor of the medicine is amplified, meaning less is needed to produce the desired effect and results in a more pleasant experience for first-time […]

Rebranding – What is it and What is the Fuss?

When reading articles online or visiting forums such as Reddit, you may see reference to some vaporizers as being scornfully referred to as ‘rebrands’ or “clones”. It IS a fact that some vaporizers are similar or even identical to others in terms of construction or appearance. A good example of this is the almost identical […]

How are the Soothing Vapours Product Prices Determined?

Today, roughly 90 percent of the world’s e-cigarettes and vaporizers come from Shenzhen, a major city in Guangdong Province, China. The irony of this is that the Chinese themselves are banned from using such devices for cannabis. Buying directly from these manufacturers allows the best profit margin for resellers; buying volume also reduces cost. Other […]

OK, the younger readers (which means anyone under 40 to me these days!) probably aren’t going to get a reference to a book published in the 60’s but we all need to know a bit more about grinders and grinding. When it comes to vaporizing, grinders are a must. Grinding your herb improves the efficiency […]

Conduction vs Convection Vaporizers: What’s the Difference?

In nature, there are three main ways of transferring heat from one object to another: radiant heating, conduction and convection. Vaporizers generally employ conduction or convection as a means of transmitting heat to the herb. In some cases, hybrid models use a combination of both methods.

Why Use a Vaporizer?

June 18, 2018

Traditionally, cannabis has been most widely consumed by combustion: smoking plant material in a joint, pipe or bong. These methods are effective in delivering the goods but all suffer from certain drawbacks. The act of burning any organic material produces combustion byproducts such as tar, ash, particulate matter, carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide, water vapour, and hydrocarbons. Personally speaking, […]
