I had a great time here the FTP 40 an 8th + midshelf wax/oil was a nice deal. I picked up an 8th of Louie 8/10 was definitely good flowers The topshelf wax was definitely good quality and very reasonably priced - definitely worth checking out the midshelf wax which i picked up had been properly purged and tasted great =) the budtender // dabtender Johanna wanted me to post this here after I brought up an issue at the dab bar. http://forum.grasscity.com/concentrate-tools/1091122-titanium-nails-pads-oxidation-butane-vs-propane-torches-academic-analysis.html The issue was titanium oxidization. Especially using propane benzomatic torches which burn hot and the heavy use which can produce increased amounts of titanium oxide it could be a health hazard. - Titanium dioxide dust, when inhaled, has been classified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) as an IARC Group 2B carcinogen, meaning it is possibly carcinogenic to humans. The findings of the IARC are based on the discovery that high concentrations of pigment-grade (powdered) and ultrafine titanium dioxide dust caused respiratory tract cancer in rats exposed by inhalation and intratracheal instillation. The series of biological events or steps that produce the rat lung cancers (e.g. particle deposition, impaired lung clearance, cell injury, fibrosis, mutations and ultimately cancer) have also been seen in people working in dusty environments. Therefore, the observations of cancer in animals were considered, by IARC, as relevant to people doing jobs with exposures to titanium dioxide dust. For example, titanium dioxide production workers may be exposed to high dust concentrations during packing, milling, site cleaning and maintenance, if there are insufficient dust control measures in place. However, the human studies conducted so far do not suggest an association between occupational exposure to titanium dioxide and an increased risk for cancer. The safety of the use of nano-particle sized titanium dioxide, which can penetrate the body and reach internal organs, has been criticized. Studies have also found that titanium dioxide nanoparticles cause inflammatory response and genetic damage in mice. The mechanism by which TiO2 may cause cancer is unclear. Molecular research suggests that cell cytotoxicity due to TiO2 results from the interaction between TiO2 nanoparticles and the lysosomal compartment, independently of the known apoptotic signalling pathways.
There is some evidence the rare disease Yellow nail syndrome may be caused by titanium, either implanted for medical reasons or through eating various foods containing titanium dioxide. I highly suggest the conversion to butane torches (although they have to be frequently refilled the costs should be nominal) + http://www.highlyeducatedti.com/blog/?p=155 has really good information on properly using a nail. also domeless nails might be a good idea for a future investment at the dab bar
