I’ve interacted with at least 100 different budtenders over the past few years as a medical cannabis consumer. The best of these budtenders were cannabis enthusiasts providing exceptional customer service. The worst of them were uninformed and aloof, ruining my shopping experiences and leaving me searching for new stores. The cannabis industry lacks uniform minimum qualifications for budtenders. I’d like that to change.

Quartz Banger Brings 710 to Life

710 Life is a Los Angeles area company that manufactures a wide variety of standard and portable cannabis vaping and dabbing devices. The company’s proprietary e-nail coil is designed to work seamlessly with a specially made quartz banger, an upgrade sold separately from their e-nail packages. I discovered 710 Life last year in a High Times article reviewing 2018’s 10 best e-nails and have used their micro mini e-nail reliably for the past 5 months dabbing live resins, jelly waxes, shatters, crumbles, and other extracts. After putting my e-nail through daily tests of performance and durability, powering it up and down, disconnecting and reconnecting the coil and cord, disassembling, cleaning and reassembling the nail components and dabbing anew without incident, it is clear why the award-winning device made it on the High Times list.
