Hemlock Vapor Company, Whittier CA

Last month I was driving on Whittier Blvd and couldn't help but notice that the Casket Company that was right on the corner of Whittier Blvd and Washington Ave was gone. That place was a long time staple of the Whittier community. I can't tell you how many times I drove past that place and in a weird way I am going to miss those caskets in the windows. So as we hit the fast forward button on the ever changing Whittier landscape I drove past it again recently and saw that the old building had a new occupant! And that new occupant is...........

HEMLOCK VAPOR COMPANY

Since I love all things Whittier naturally this peaked my curiosity. Now to be perfectly honest with you I have never been inside a Vape Shop in my life, I have never "Vaped" anything in my entire life and had no idea what the vape community was all about. Many friends, relatives and family members of mine do vape and it seems like every where you turn someone is using a vape devise. So I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to go by and check it out and learn a little bit about the vape world.

Hemlock Vapor Company

 
I walked in on a Saturday around 3pm and before the door could even close I was greeted with "Welcome to Hemlock Vapor Company, how are you doing today?" I thought to myself, "Now that is a nice touch." I am huge on customer service so that was a huge plus for me. The next thing I noticed was the clean sleek look of the place. I don't know what I was expecting but it wasn't this. Really cool, good looking place with a great vibe.

I walked around a bit and soaked in the atmosphere and then I jumped right in to some general questioning. I let Andrew know that I had no clue about vaping or any idea about how any of this worked. He was super cool and didn't even blink an eye he was open to any and all questions I had. So naturally I asked, what is vaping? He let me know that first and foremost vaping is a way to help people stop smoking cigarettes. The facts do show that vaping has helped millions and millions quit smoking. That is something I didn't actually know, cool.
 
So many items to choose from these guys
really have a great set up.
 
He then took me through the A,B, C's of vaping from build outs to the social aspect of it. After hearing what this was all about I had a new clarity regarding it and I didn't have a negative connotation about it at all. With that being said Hemlock Vapor Company does not sell to anyone under 18 and they do not carry any Dry Herb or Wax Pens. They do have amazing House Juices as well as many different lines of juices. They will clean your coils, provide you with battery help and adjustments. Basically anything you need from big clouds to little ones they got you covered.
 

All different types of Mods to choose from
Basic to Custom just let them know what you need.
Super friendly staff.
 
As my visit was coming to an end I had a sense of what this community was all about. The best way I can explain it to someone who doesn't vape is like this. I am a huge watch guy I really dig watches and depending on what you are in to you can rock a Timex or a Rolex it is up to you. If we are talking about vaping you can get a basic Mod or a Custom Mod (device) depending on how you want to roll. It was all pretty cool I have to say I thought about buying one right there on the spot.
 
My very first Vape experience!
I'm glad it was at Hemlock

Hemlock Vapor Company has its roots firmly planted here in Whittier. They hang their hat on excellent customer service which I can vouch for first hand. I spent about an hour there asking questions and never felt like a burden. Hemlock brings great product selection and a welcoming vibe that you can't help but respect. I really appreciate the time that Andrew and Mikey took to educate me. There are many misconceptions about vaping and I am so glad I now understand what this community is all about. With this historic location, great Knowledgeable staff and attention to details I can see Hemlock being around for a very long time. If you are in the area make sure you stop by and check it out and tell them My Whittier sent ya. I will definitely be back to hang out and check in on Hemlock.
