Can You Say ‘Weed Ice Cream’? Ben & Jerry’s Co-Founder Seems to Think So

According to Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Ben Cohen, the Ice Cream giant may soon launch its own marijuana-infused flavor. The legalization of marijuana would enable Ben & Jerry’s to sell its own weed ice cream at a retail store near you. 

In the words of Ben & Jerry’s co-founder Jerry Greenfield: “Ben and I have had previous experiences with substances, and I think legalizing marijuana is a wonderful thing,” he said. “It’s not my decision. If it were my decision, I’d be doing it, but fortunately we have wiser heads at the company that figure those things out.”

Additionally, Ben & Jerry’s may be looking to develop a medicinal ice cream product in places like Colorado, Alaska, Oregon and Washington where Marijuana is already legal. 

Either way, Ben & Jerry would not be the first to make this move. Other smaller local companies have already jumped on the edible marijuana business. The edible marijuana business is a multi-million dollar a year business and big retailers like Ben & Jerry’s will likely try to enter this industry in the future.  

Willie Nelson is Launching His Own Weed Brand (Pretty Cool!)

Willie Nelson, one of the most iconic figures of weed smoking of our generation, is launching his own line of weed. According to different sources, Nelson’s new label will be called Willie’s Reserve. The 81-year-old is interested in bringing high quality weed products to today’s legal marijuana sales in states like Colorado, Washington and Alaska (and hopefully every state in the future!).

That’s right, everyone! This will be the first signature marijuana out there.

Other products that will be sold by his label include bongs and other weed smoking paraphernalia. In fact, Willie is looking to open up his first store as early as 2016. The concept, it seems, will be stores that sell super high quality weed products and a place where independent growers can sell their own products.

According to his PR person, Willie’s store will resemble something like a “Whole Foods” for weed.
Willie is known to be a huge opponent of the “war on drugs.” His spokesperson said: “There’s a lot of money in selling marijuana. If you can do it legally, that’s good. Why should all the criminals make the money? This is what people are thinking. If it’s happening, if it’s going to be legal, let’s tax it and regulate it, like we do with everything else, and make some money off this. I think that’s one reason why people are talking this a little more seriously.”

Willie is well-known for being a weed connoisseur and his passion life-long support for marijuana products. In fact, Willie has evolved in his marijuana smoking sophistication by switching over to using a vaporizer for his every-day use.

He now joins the list of celebrities like Snoop Lion (formerly known as Snoop Dogg), Tommy Chong, Bob Marley’s family and Wiz Khalifa, all who have taken the route of selling and investing in marijuana-related products.

Iolite WISPR Vaporizer is On Sale For Only $99!

The Iolite WISPR Vaporizer is one of our most popular handheld vaporizers for dry blends, and for very good reason: it's got a memorable appearance, a large filling chamber, and a comfortable flexi-stem that folds away for easy transit and storage. There have actually been 2 versions of the WISPR produced and VaporNation is currently running a ridiculously awesome special on the most recent 2.0 Version.

For only $99 you can get one of the most popular portable vaporizers on the market. Ireland's Oglesby & Butler started out making typical household appliances and power tools. Around the turn of the century they began directing their attention at less traditional devices, herbal vaporizers. The first Iolite Vaporizer is still a very popular product in our Online Superstore and the WISPR improved greatly upon the strengths of the Original Iolite Vaporizer.

As you can see in the above video, the primary advantages to using the WISPR versus any other portable vape are that the WISPR is always vape-ready. It doesn't use a battery, rather the Iolite WISPR is powered by butane. The butane chamber has a handy window on the side of the vape for the user to gauge how much juice is left. This is much more precise than waiting for a red light to flash on other battery-operated vapes. Then you're all like, "shoot, I want to vape more but the stupid light is telling me I can't...if only I had a charger!"

You can avoid that unfortunate eventuality with the Iolite WISPR. Just keep your butane can on hand and you'll be vaping away in no time. Just enter coupon code WISPR when you check out with your WISPR purchase and you'll get this snazzy pocket vape for only $99!

New Atmos E-Juices and Vape Cartridges are Here!

We are proud to welcome three new Atmos heating chambers to our Online Vaporizer Superstore. The Atmos RT (pictured at right), Atmos XK Mini and Atmos ProTank (seen below) are nifty little pen vape cartridges that you can take anywhere and vape like crazy. Each of these tanks is designed for your favorite flavored nicotine juices but will also work effectively with melted concentrates like essential oils and waxes, provided they are at a runny, thin consistency and not too viscous.

The engineers at Atmos have made a name for themselves thanks to their seemingly unceasing supply of stealthy and stylish vapes for on the go, and these brand new cartridges fall right in lock step with their commitment to portable vaporizing excellence. Each one features 510 threading and they heat up virtually instantaneously; the only differences between them is the particular look that you’re going for and the size of the tank. The Atmos RT is slightly larger tank than the Atmos ProTank, otherwise they're pretty much identical, and both deliver great taste and huge clouds.

AroMed 4.0: An Unsung Vape Hero

Sure you've heard of the Volcano, the Magic Flight Launch Box, and the Ascent Vaporizers. But there are several vaporizers out there that fly under the radar for any number of reasons. One of these lesser-known vaporizers is also one of the most powerful and enjoyable to use. The AroMed 4.0 Vaporizer is made in Germany by a company called Research & Experience. They don't have the prominent name recognition that Storz & Bickel does with their Volcano Vaporizer, but that doesn't mean that the vapor production is any less potent.
