Review: The Puffco Peak Promises Great Dabs in a Modern Package

While portable e-rigs and vape pens are convenient, it’s hard to give up your dab rig for an electronic device. Most electronic vaporizers give off harsh, flavorless hits compared with low-temperature dabs on a quartz nail. Because of this, concentrate connoisseurs would rather tote their glass around in Pelican cases to seshes and festivals than rely on electronic devices.

But the need for a torch and several other implements has kept less adventurous consumers away from the extract scene altogether.

Fortunately, we now have the new Puffco Peak to bridge the gap between a modern dab rig’s efficiency and the accessibility of a portable electronic vaporizer. This “smart rig” addresses many of the complications that come with using a dab rig, nail and carb cap.

No More Torches

There are several reasons why many consumers have either avoided concentrates completely or relied solely on portable devices, a common one being that people don’t want to deal with or invest in the necessary tools for dabbing.

How to Deal with Memory Loss and Other Negative Effects of Cannabis

Do you tend to forget what happened when high? If the answer is yes, then that makes two of us.

As reported by Health Canada, short-term memory loss—including “impaired ability to remember, concentrate, pay attention and react quickly—have been shown to be some of the effects of cannabis use.

Although cannabis is proven to influence and increase creativity, when it comes to making and retaining new memories, things may not be so peachy.

Different types of memory

According to the Atkinson–Shiffrin model, there are three types of memory:

  • Sensory memory;
  • Short-term memory;
  • Long-term memory.

Sensory memory is the shortest type of remembrance.

It lasts for about 3 seconds, briefly holding the information obtained from the senses.

These are the memories relating to one hearing or seeing–for instance, when looking at an object briefly, and then trying to recall what it looked like.

Short-term memory lasts anywhere from 18 to 30 seconds and its function is to process sensory memory and retain information on everything a person is paying attention to at the moment.

The best example of …
