Sales of portable weed vaporizers are on the rise in the world in 2018. Made popular with those who want to use ganja in a healthier way. They remain illegal in most countries, but are seen as less harmful by renown addictologists.

“Every time I smoked a joint, I would go back to smoking cigarettes. During a trip to the United States last year, I found and purchased a dry herb vaporizer. It may sound strange, but it has allowed me to smoke healthily ever since.”

But what are these high tech products?

An alternative to the traditional joint you smoke. With these types of devices, no combustion or even smoke. Cannabis herb is heated to at least 375°F to help it releasing it’s agents through the creation of vapor.

Very fashionable in the United States

“Today, people want to inhale clean and eat healthy,” assures a coffee shop owner interviewed last week in Amsterdam Holland. Many want to adopt it and give up electronic cigarettes, which they find too toxic. On the Internet and in our shop, we sell up to 10 to 20 a day,” he adds.

How does it work?

These devices, are very popular in the United States, are used in clinics in Germany, Israel, or Switzerland, and countries that have legalized the medicinal use of cannabis, in the form of CBD, a hemp molecule, to calm anxiety and pain.

What is a vaporizer?

It is a device that heats enough vegetable matter to evaporate the active principle or essential oil to then be able to inhale it, but that will not heat it enough to trigger combustion (cellulose, the main component of vegetable matter burns at around 445°, but THC evaporates at + or – 320°). It is the combustion which releases a whole pile of toxic and carcinogenic substances by emitting a thick, irritating and malodorous smoke.

The vaporizer is a kind of mini furnace of precision which will allow you to extract essential oils, or active principles of a plant in the form of vapor and thus avoiding you to absorbing a great part of the toxic substances due to the combustion. The taste of the vaporized plant will be much better than when it is burned. There are desktop vaporizers available such as the famous Volcano or portable ones such as the DaVinci IQ.

Some look like e-cigs, others fit in the palm of your hand. Prices vary from 50 to 500 $ and more for medical desktop models.

Less toxic than combustion

“When you smoke herbs mixed with tobacco, you swallow tar, heavy metals, carbon monoxide,” says a head representative of the Norml association, which campaigns for governments to easy on cannabis regulations in Europe. On their website, they advise the use of vaporizers rather than the use of regular joints harmful to your lungs.

The advantages of a vaporizer

  1. Cleanliness / hygiene: no combustion = no ashes or persistent odours on clothes or skin.
  2. Discretion: no combustion = a little discreet steam instead of a thick smoke = no smell or almost.
  3. Well-being / health: no burning, no irritating smoke, much less tar, and much less toxic gas = no bad taste in your mouth, more breathing and lung capacity, less chronic irritation and cough or other potential disease.
  4. Savings: no more leaves and cigarettes to buy, less material used for the same result.
  5. Taste: without combustion the taste of the plant is not altered and is much better.

One thing is certain, it is not by chance that all therapists advise the use of medical cannabis, either in the form of concentrated oil or dye to ingest, or in the form of steam to inhale, because these are the two safest methods according to them.

Apple Unveils New MacBook Pro 2018

New MacBook Pro 2018

On Saturday 21, Apple made a discreet introduction of its two new MacBook Pro. Both are equipped with the usual Touch Bar and offer better technical performance than their predecessors.

If the announcement was made without the show to which the brand has accustomed us, it is undoubtedly because the design does not present any real significant evolution. For this time, the apple company focused mainly on a definite improvement in performance.

MacBook Pro 13″

For the first model, whose size is 13 inches, it features an Intel Core i5 quad-core processor at 2.3 GHz, or i7 at 2.7 GHz, depending on the user’s choice. As a reminder, the previous chip provided in the other models offered only two cores. Therefore, no doubt the new MacBook Pro will be much more powerful and influential than the previous generation. As for the graphics chip, the 13-inch MacBook Pro is equipped with an Iris Plus Graphics 655 graphics chip.

This new range of MacBook Pro 2018 13″ is launched from 2000$.

MacBook Pro 15″

As for the 15-inch MacBook Pro, it also comes with an 8-core Core i7 clocked at 2.2 GHz and 2.6 GHz. A 2.9 GHz Core i9 is also available as an option. According to Apple, this would improve the power of the computer by 30 to 70%, depending on the activities of the user of the device. As for the graphics cards, they are Radeon Pro 555X or Radeon Pro 560X from AMD with 4GB of GDDR5 memory. For the autonomy, Apple made the choice of DDR4 strips, which offers 32 GB of RAM.

The new MacBook Pro 15″ 2018 is launched with a minimum price of 2800$.

Both computers have the innovative keyboard which uses the butterfly mechanism and is highlighted by Apple as quieter than before. It remains to be seen whether this new version will put an end to the problems of the past. The MacBook Pro also comes with a T2 chip for further Siri integration.

Available on both models, a True Tone screen will adapt the colorimetry to adjust to the ambient light.

Google Pay finally rolling out

Google Pay

Google officially deploys its new features and strengthens its Pay application. In this update, it will be possible to store concert tickets and boarding tickets; it will also be possible to make financial transactions between friends.

Sending money

No more Google Pay Send and Google Pay. From now on, just Google Pay. All Google Pay services are now available in a single application under a single name.

Google Pay then called “Pay With Google” was merely to facilitate online mobile payment using payment methods stored on its own Google accounts. At the same time, users could previously send and request money from their friends through the Google Pay Send application. From now on, this service will be directly available from Google Pay.

The update includes features that many people have been using for years through various services, including support for mobile ticketing and friend payments like Lydia or Apple Pay. Users can also share the addition of purchases and instantly ask their friends for money.

Access concert tickets, loyalty cards, gift cards and other airline tickets

In addition to transactions made possible by Google Pay, the service also provides access to concert tickets, loyalty cards, gift cards and other airline tickets if they have been saved on Ticketmaster or Southwest platforms. The number of “partner platforms” is expected to increase significantly over time and with the democratization (in other countries) of these functionalities.

In the field of ticketing and reservations stored on mobile phones, the Mountain View firm had fallen a long way behind. They are trying to catch up with their competitors, including Apple, which has been offering this service for several years already.

Please note that the update is only available in the United States. However, it is expected to be launched soon in the United Kingdom. No information was communicated concerning the other markets, so let us cross our fingers and hope that the deployment in France will be done quickly.
