Can I Buy Hemp Products in Texas?

Yes, you can! Austin Vape and Smoke offers a wide range of hemp products that are both federally legal, and legal in the state of Texas. Currently, we offer products with these cannabis compounds inside: CBD, CBG, Delta-8 THC, Delta-10 THC, HHC, THC-O, and more!

How is this legal?

The 2018 Farm Bill is the bill that defines what counts as federally legal hemp, and what counts as federally illegal marijuana. As long as a product is made with materials with no more than 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight content, AND as long as the finished product (and during all stages along the way) is also under 0.3% delta-9 THC by dry weight. All products offered by Austin Vape & Smoke meet the legal conditions for hemp, and are therefore legal to buy & use in Texas.

What’s the Difference Between Regular E-Liquid and Nic Salts?

Nicotine Salt vape juice, often called Nic Salts, are extremely potent forms of e-liquid. Often, a device that uses Nic Salts will not be compatible with regular E-Liquid, and visa versa. 

If using Nic Salts, please use caution! The overall effects are significantly stronger than a typical vape. Start slow to avoid adverse effects

What’s the Difference Between an E-Liquid Vape and a Dry Herb Vape?

There are two major kinds of vaporizers that we sell at Austin Vape and Smoke. That would be Nicotine / E-Liquid Vapes (otherwise called e-juice, vape juice, vape liquid) and Dry Herb Vapes. Dry Herb Vaporizers can be used to consume tobacco, but that is not the only kind of herb that can be used in these devices.

Nicotine Vapes do not function with dry herb, and dry herb vapes do not function with liquid. Some vaporizers are able to be used with both dry herb and concentrate. 

Where are Your Stores Located?

All three Austin Vape & Smoke locations are within Austin city limits, towards the South side of the city.

We are located at:

South First: 4200 S 1st St, Austin, TX 787454200 S. 1st Street

Westgate: 4526 West Gate Blvd Suite C, Austin, TX 78745. 

What is the difference between delta-8 and delta-9 THC?

Both delta-8 and delta-9 THC come from the cannabis plant. Delta-9 is the main THC we hear about and can make people feel “high.” Delta-8 is like its cousin and can also give a “high” feeling, but it’s usually milder and clearer. Think of them as two close family members with slight differences! Just so you know, hemp-derived delta-8 is federally legal as long as it has less than 0.3% delta-9 THC.

What is THC-A?

THC-A, short for Tetrahydrocannabinolic Acid, is like a “raw” version of THC. It’s found in fresh cannabis plants. When the plant is heated or aged, THC-A changes into the THC we often talk about, the one that can make people feel “high.” Until it’s heated, THC-A won’t give that “high” feeling. Think of it as a baking ingredient that needs heat to show its magic! Please note, hemp-derived THC-A is federally legal as long as it contains less than 0.3% delta-9 THC.

What is the difference between white, green, and red kratom?
Kratom leaves have veins that change color as the plant ages. These colors tell us about the leaf’s effects:
  • White-Veined Kratom: Comes from younger leaves. It’s like morning coffee, giving you energy and alertness.
  • Green-Veined Kratom: From leaves that are a bit older. It’s a balance, offering both energy and relaxation—think of an afternoon boost.
  • Red-Veined Kratom: From the oldest leaves. This is like evening tea, helping you relax and wind down.
So, the color of the vein helps decide the leaf’s mood and effects!
What is the difference between kratom powder and extract?
Kratom comes in different forms:
  • Kratom Powder: This is just ground-up kratom leaves. It’s the most natural form and is often used in teas or capsules.
  • Kratom Extract: This is a concentrated version of kratom. It’s made by taking the powder and pulling out the powerful compounds, making it much stronger than just the powder.
Think of powder as regular coffee and extract as a strong espresso shot. Both come from the same source, but the extract packs a bigger punch!
What is kava?
Kava is a drink made from the root of a plant found in the Pacific Islands. People in places like Fiji and Hawaii have drunk it for centuries. When you drink kava, it can make you feel relaxed and calm, a bit like how some teas work. It’s a natural way to chill out and has a unique, earthy taste. Some folks use kava to socialize, while others enjoy it for its calming effects.
Do you sell tobacco or cigarettes?
No, we don’t sell tobacco or cigarettes. While we offer various smoking accessories, actual tobacco and cigarette products are not in our inventory. We focus on other products to enhance your smoking and vaping experience.
Do you deliver?

Yes, we do! Right now, we deliver to locations within a 15-mile radius from our Westgate shop. In the future, this might change, so stay tuned. We offer both same-day (cut-off time at 3pm)  and next-day delivery options for your convenience.
