Posts Tagged ‘vaporizer pen’

Today on the Glass House blog, we point you to High Times magazine, who released a new Youtube video that will help you consider some important questions before investing in a vape pen. You’ll notice that these are similar questions to the ones we addressed in our series, Which Piece is Right for Me?


Everyone has a different first-time smoking experience, but 9 times out of 10, it happens with someone else. Maybe you have a friend who has a water pipe, and they teach you how to use it. Eventually, though, you give in and you want your own. Then, the inevitable question…which piece is right for me? Glass pipe? Water Pipe? Bubbler? Oil Rig? Vaporizer pen? Tabletop vaporizer? …All of the above?

So many options! Lucky for you, whether you’re a seasoned smoker or brand new, we’re here to help.

First, and most importantly, consider your habits. How often do you smoke? Where do you smoke? And where and how often do you want to smoke?

If you’re an occasional smoker who lives alone, with roommates who don’t mind it, or with neighbors who aren’t too nosey, a glass pipe is an inexpensive and effective investment. It’s the simplest method – pack it, light it up, and smoke it. It gets the job done.

Unfortunately, a regular glass pipe does nothing to soften the smoke as it enters your lungs. If you smoke more often than once or twice a week (or even if you smoke less), it may be beneficial to pick up a bubbler or a water pipe. The water cuts the smoke, causing less discomfort to your lungs. Plus, the effects of smoking through a water pipe are undeniably powerful.

However, if you need to be a bit more discreet with your smoking, a pipe isn’t going to do the trick. In this case, a vaporizer is definitely the piece for you. With a vaporizer of any size, scent won’t give you away. A pen is more discreet for obvious reasons – you can stash it just about anywhere, and you can bring it just about anywhere. Do you want to smoke at the movies, or on a road trip? A pen will give you the flexibility you need. If you don’t plan to travel with it, then a tabletop will be much more potent.

A vaporizer is also a good option if you smoke on the reg. The vapor is much healthier for your lungs than smoke, even if the smoke is cut by water in a bubbler or water pipe.

We’ll continue this series next week when we talk about the best piece for what you smoke…but in the meantime, come visit us and let us help you choose one in person!

Also, share with us on Facebook – what was your very first piece?



The number of vaporizers available here at The Glass House even astounds us!


At the end of the day, you have a lot of options when it comes to glass, vaporizers and other bells and whistles. You can count on the Glass House to help you sift through the products and make the optimal choice for your specific smoke and toke needs.

Today, we’re looking at Grenco Science, the first company to utilize a tank system designed for essential oils. For those of you looking for a vaporizer that’s not only effective but also elegantly designed, the G Pen may be your new go-to.

At first glance, the Grenco Science G Pen Personal Vaporizer looks like a sophisticated e-cigarette, making it as discreet as it is portable. At an affordable price, it includes a mouthpiece, the G Tank and a G Tool, as well as a wall charger, AC adapter and two essential oil containers (oils not included).

The 30-second video below illustrates how the G Pen works, using a wick system to deliver oil to the heating coil with a rechargeable lithium-ion quality battery. This heats the oil to just the right temperature below the point of combustion, creating a smooth vapor and saving you from the toxins that come with smoke. The quality of the battery allows several hours of use between charges.

To summarize its benefits, the G Pen is easy on your lungs, has virtually no scent, can travel with you almost anywhere, heats quickly and lasts for several hours. What else could you ask for in a vaporizer?

Beyond the G Pen, we love that Grenco Science™ prioritizes giving back to the community. They have established a Charity Series that donates a portion of their proceeds to various non-profit organizations as well as an Artist Series that collaborates with artists in the industry.

As with all vapes, the G Pen can still have a slight learning curve for those new to the tool, so if you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask us! We’re here to help. And feel free to leave your own comments and questions below or on our Facebook page!
