What is AKA LEAN?

Life is stressful. Sometimes after a long days work all you want to do is relax. That is why we are happy to announce that High End Glass now offers AKA LEAN for those who want to relax without consuming alcohol. Trying a new product can be scary so read on to see what aka lean is and if its right for you.

AKA LEAN is an all natural alternative drink that is meant to help you achieve calmness, tranquility, and peace of mind. Its pretty simple you just mix as much of the 2 oz syrup with your favorite cold drink (we recommend something carbonated) and sip slowly. It has a slightly sweet cherry flavor and is purple in color so sprite is often used as a base since it allows you to see the purple color of the syrup more.

Although the syrup is sweet there is only 10 grams of sugar in the whole bottle and only 40 calories. If you are watching your sugar intake we recommend mixing AKA LEAN with La Croix since the sweetness of the syrup will add just enough to the unsweetened carbonated water. other than sugar and other sweeteners the syrup basically is a mix of natural relaxation proprietary blend which consists of lemonbalm, kava extract, gaba, melatonin, and L-theanime.

So what did we think of it? We recommend this product to people who find it hard to sleep at night, people who have anxiety, or people looking to just wind down at the end of the day.. It mixes well with soda and has a very gradual relaxing effect. However if you are conscious about your health then we recommending using a soda with low or no sugar.

Why I Love Shipment Day

Shipment day used to be every couple weeks, now it feels like every day. Thanks to the support of the community, we have been able to expand every month since we opened. First we added a few extra cabinets, then we knocked down a wall and put up shelves. It's our plan to improve the overall feel of the store after we add a few more display cases and brands.

Shipment day is hectic since I have to add each item to the computer system individually while still running the shop and answering calls. It feels like every second is a juggling act.

We recycle our boxes (once they hit the ceiling) and reuse the bubble wrap. It is important to play our part to help impact the environment. 

We love being able to offer an ever growing selection of high quality glass products at High End Glass.

Are pre-filled CBD vape pens worth it?

CBD RE-LEAF pre-filled vape pen

CBD RE-LEAF pre-filled vape pen

Pre-filled disposable vape pens have been around for a while now but we were surprised when we found that the same company who makes the Chill Gummies now offers CBD disposable pens. So after a couple days of product testing these vape pens here is some things we loved and some things we didn't love about the CBD RE-LEAF.

First we loved how easy it was to use. All you have to do is open the packaging and take a hit. There is a bright white led on the opposite end of the mouthpiece that lights up when you are getting a hit. You can also tell by the delicious taste of the vapor (our favorite is strawberry) which fills your mouth instantly. We love these disposable vape pens because they are just so easy to use. No messing with batteries, wiring, tanks, atomizers, drip,ping and tipping. 

The next reason we can't get over these disposable CBD vape pens is because the CBD effect is the strongest we have felt. Sometimes you need immediate pain relief and these pens hit you quick. I suffer from chronic back pain so I always make sure I have one of these pens on me now. One puff and within a minute I can feel the years of tension and knots melt away. These hasn't been a better product for quick discreet and easy pain relief when you need it.  

That leads us to the final reason why we love these products. They fit in your pocket and you can take them anywhere. Its the size of half a pencil and with 200 puffs inside you simply cannot beat the value and ease of use.

The only thing we didn't love about this product was that there was no way to recharge it or reuse it at all. We do advise that you treat these like painkiller and be cautious with operating machinery or doing delicate tasks because they really do make your body much much more relaxed than normal.


5 Reasons why you should try CBD Gummies

Last week we returned from a huge glass expo in Vegas. One of the coolest products that we got to sample and are now offering in store are the “Chill Gummies” CBD edibles. They come in different forms (bears, rainbow strips, worms, watermelon, and rings) which will all remind you of your favorite snacks. Keep reading to learn the 5 reasons you should try eating your CBD.


  1. More Powerful CBD effect.

    Compared to vaporizable/smokable products you will getmuch more milage out of your CBD when  you eat it. This is due to the fact that your stomach and intestinal tract have much more time to extract the component compared to how your lungs traditionally absorb. If you think about it when you blow out vapor or smoke there is still a lot of CBD in there that goes to waste. You will feel a much stronger cbd effect when you eat.
  2. Easier for non smokers

    If your lungs aren’t used to smoke or vapor it can cause great discomfort for you to try to inhale your CBD and when you are already trying to control pain this can add a layer of complexity. Not everyone likes smoking. Everyone likes eating
  3. They taste great

    This is an easy one. If you like the taste of candy ( who doesn't) then you will love the taste of CBD gummies.
  4. Longer pain Management

    Since you are eating your CBD and its being absorbed slowly throughout the day you do not have to take as much cbd or as often compared to smoking or vaping. Instead of taking a puff every hour you can eat one or two gummies and be good for the day.
  5. Kick the addictive painkillers

    Honestly this point applies to all CBD products but CBD gummies offer a natural alternative to traditional chemical and often highly addictive pain medication. There have been many examples of how CBD can help manage pain safer and more effectively than painkillers so if you are sick of being in pain give them a shot.
