Happy New Year from all of us at Magic-Flight. We wish you many magical flights in 2018!
We’re proud of the originals in our Laser Etch Line, a design initiative, beautifying the cover lids of the Magic-Flight Launch Box.
The laser artisans at Magic Flight cooked up six geometric designs to choose from. Labyrinth, The Tree Of Life, Metatron’s Cube, The Flower Of Life, Star Knot, & The Celtic Tree of Life.
Each design represents intricate ancient geometric patterns, exploring the infinite and ever-circulating flow of space and time. From Greek Myth to ancient Egyptian walls, these sacred designs have been used cross-culturally.
Two of the most desired of the designs are The Tree of Life and Metatron’s Cube. The Tree of Life is a motif that has been used in religion, philosophy, mythology, and popular culture around the world since ancient times as a symbol of immortality, infinite interconnectedness, wisdom, and life-nourishment. To this day, The Tree of Life is referenced by many artists, and even represents the scientific organization of evolutionary relationships between all living organisms. Our specific Tree of Life is derived from Kabbalah, a mystical faction of Judaism, in which it represents the process by which the Universe came into being as well as man’s place within the Universe.
Metatron’s Cube is a highly geometric aspect of the Flower of Life that was first discovered by a medieval Italian mathematician. The figure, Metatron, is the ultimate communicator between the divine and humans in a variety of apocryphal texts, and many believe his cube to contain sacred geometry that will allow us to understand every living being. The cube contains the five three-dimensional “Platonic solids” which represent the five elements: fire, water, earth, air, and ether. Not only do these shapes each fit perfectly inside a sphere with identical faces, edges, and angles, but also it has been proven that their forms are the basis of the entire periodic table of elements. Within the complex shape, one can see a hexagram, a symbol of duality, and a star tetrahedron, which is thought to be the energy field around each of our bodies. Another structural beauty to Metatron’s Cube reveals a hexagon, a shape found in naturally occurring phenomena such as honeycombs and flowers, implying that there is a mysterious universal order. Within this abstruse design, you will explore the synchronicity of the universe, and encounter the mathematical, natural, and metaphysical unity between yourself and the world around you.
All Laser Etch patterns can be ordered in Maple, Cherry, or Walnut wood.
Below is a write up of Magic-Flight from the folks at VaporNation. They understand what it is that the people love so much about Magic-Flight. Read VaporNation full blog post here.
Just like the automobiles shipped out of Detroit’s GMC factories during the thriving days of the motor city, Magic Flight’s Launch Box is made and assembled in the good ol’ USA. With a carved wood body, hand-crafted by artisans based in San Diego, the design has remained largely unchanged since the inception of the first Launch Box portable vaporizer. While it may not feature LCD screens or space-age materials, the Launch Box vape excels at its one true function, vaping, with reliability and ease of use.
This is the perfect portable vaporizer for those used to more traditional means of dry herb consumption. The handcrafted wood offers a nice feel in the hand, and the operation is unrivaled in its simplicity. The unit consists of the box with a heating element and a battery, to use, simply push the battery until it clicks and you’re ready to vape. The units are guaranteed for life, to offer extra peace of mind when buying and feature easily replaceable components to ensure usage is never interrupted due to a small malfunction.
There’s a sort of mythos and almost cult-like following that surrounds the Launch Box. From the quotes which are printed on the every unit to the unique design and dedicated community, this is a vaporizer which offers an unparalleled level of communal appeal for the user.
Product Spotlight: Magic Flight Dry Herb vaporizer and Muad-Dib wax vape
This might be cheating, but Magic Flight’s entire line of vaporizers consists of two similar but very functional vapes, each engineered for specific purposes. The original Magic Flight is optimized for dry herb vaporization and handles the purpose with aplomb. The Muad-Dib is the newest iteration of the Launch Box vaporizer, featuring a heating chamber and brass rails which function at a higher temperature, to extract all the essential vapors from your concentrates and waxy oils.
Thank You VaporNation!
We are all essentially the same, which is why we must respect our differences. As we go about making sense of our world, the ways in which we’re different inevitably dissolve into a recognition of sameness – life experience keeping us in oscillation, back and forth. In our explanation of the Aphorism of Respect, for Groups, we identified this fundamental dialectic of the ‘other’ as a positive and clear regard for another besides oneself. At Magic-Flight, these powerful insights guide our deliberate efforts to engage our customers and each other – as a community.
Our Premium Launch Box line features wood styles that have been chosen for their uniqueness and exquisite natural beauty. Cherry and Walnut woods are an exciting addition to the Launch Box line, traditionally these trees are used far less often in woodworking applications than their more popular counterparts, Maple and Pine. These Premium Boxes are cut and shaped by hand with the highest quality Select Grade A lumber in our wood shop by our line of gifted artisans. These delicate woods require the utmost care and attention during the shaping process and are of a higher caliber than our typical Maple Box. Soil, wind, sun and seasons all have an impact on the look and character of the wood. Please make note that due to these natural and distinctive qualities, there will be a wide range of hues and variances between each individual Premium Launch Box. If you are really wanting something unique take a look at our Curly Maple Bare box in Connoisseurs Club…only a few more of these left and then they are gone forever.
One of our favorite things about traveling to trade shows each month is the time we get to spend visiting the local smoke shops and meeting the people who educate their customers about our products. In addition to the good memories we walk away with, we always enjoy asking the question of what we as a company can do to help make shop owners lives easier. The variety of feedback we get and insights into peoples businesses is always fascinating, but something that constantly came up was our little postcard, that we affectionately call the educard, a 4×6 postcard containing product information. We loved hearing that this was something that enables shop owners to breath easier in their lives, so we took it to the next level, creating this 4 fold brochure outlining all the features of our most beloved product, the Launch Box. Our shipping team needed a way to distinguish between the old postcard (the edu-card) and the new expanded brochure, and the name “The Edu-Bro” was born.
We appreciate your interest in reading our little sneak peek into the inner workings around Magic-Flight Head Quarters in San Diego, California. Here is some love from our customers we would like to share with you;
“Thanks for such customer-centric customer service. I praise Magic Flight to all my friends & associates, even advocating to those who don’t vape. The brilliance & simplicity of your Launch Box is complimented by the integrity of your business.”
“Thank you for loving what you do!
Thank you for keeping us healthy for more love & life!
The Magic Flight Company and Products are awesome!”
“Just wanted to drop you guys a line and thank you for the MFLB. This was my first dry herb vaporizer and after a few months of ownership, I can’t think of a good reason to get anything different. I have to say that I really prefer ‘analog’ devices to digital in general. So the entire philosophy behind the Launch Box is right up my alley. I have lived here in San Diego for about 20 years, so I feel like I have a ‘feel’ for the city and this is it. A little wood box that heats up my herbs and calms my mind after a day at the office. So thanks for the analog love. Keep up the good work!”
May the Fourth….a sci-fi lovers favorite day in May. The idea of the force is a fantastical dream but we might need all the hope we ever could imagine if Baba Vanga’s 2033 prediction comes to fruition. However, although global warming might be smacking us in our faces in 2033 take comfort in knowing Baba Vanga’s world doesn’t end for thousands of years from now.
“The trains will start flying in 2018. They will be powered by the Sun. Earth will take a rest since they will stop extracting oil.”
Baba Vanga (1911-1996) was a blind Bulgarian mystic, clairvoyant, healer, and herbalist who spent most of her life in the Rupite area in the Kozhuh mountains. She went blind at the age of 12 after being swept away by a tornado and found after a long search with her sight failing due to the sand and dust in her eyes. Her extraordinary powers were said to come from her ability to see invisible creatures.
She has been widely credited with foreseeing:
- Obama’s presidency (that the 44th US president would be black), though she also said he’d be the last president;
- the Twin Tower terrorist attacks (“Horror, horror! The American brethren will fall after being attacked by the steel birds. The wolves will be howling in a bush, and innocent blood will be gushing”);
- the tragic death of Princess Diana (“The last son of the man with the Prophet’s name Will bring Diana to her day of rest. At a distance they wander in frenetic grief Delivering a great people from ruin.”)
She also warned that in 2023 the Earth’s orbit would change and that by 2033, the polar ice would melt and oceans around the world will rise. It has been estimated that 80% of her predictions have come true. Believers and skeptics alike can take some comfort though then, that according to Baba Vanga the end of the world won’t happen until 5079.
While we cannot guarantee that vision of the future will come, we at Magic-Flight believe in our sustainable path carrying us into the future and looking to the force for inspiration.
Remember ~ Always Choose On The Basis Of Love
May The Force Be With You!

When Magic-Flight was just starting out, our first move after getting the functionality locked in was to hire a few people to help build launch boxes out of our tiny residential garage. We were blessed to be able to grow organically, in such a way where all of the original employees came to the company by word of mouth, as friends of friends. As such, there has always been a particular family kind of vibe, including similar values.
We’re proud to say that our products are handmade with Love by artisans in San Diego – which is truly a rarity in the quickly-expanding vaporizer industry. We make our products from wood because we believe in sustainability and being as eco-conscious as possible. We offer a lifetime functional warranty on our vaporizers, and provide world-class, authentic customer service.
Lately, we have been looking back at the past decade pondering – where has the time gone…..looking at our NY Times review from 2 years ago and thinking – that seems like last week! Magic-Flight is ever thankful for the hardworking employees who show up everyday ready to help the world breath easier. Coupled with our loyal vape community, Magic-Flight looks forward to the days ahead with our new products as well as the OG of them all….the Maple Launch Box.
Immersed in Spring and tending our plants, some of us at Magic-Flight got to talking about the love of ritual as an act of creativity, and believe the old yogic saying “Where attention goes, prana flows”. In other words, ritual is a good way to devote a little more of your attention to a particular issue or idea, which can produce noticeable shifts and new outcomes.
Ritual is nothing more than the act of bringing our attention to dwell upon the natural world and how our internal experience and the larger, collective, observable experience of the present moment can be held together momentarily in our awareness. Try one of these to get inspired!
Try spending a few quiet moments outside in nature visualizing what you would like to see take root in your life, and write your intention on a piece of plantable seeded paper. Water and watch your intentions bloom alongside beautiful non invasive species of wildflowers.
When considering what we are collectively wanting to cultivate here at headquarters, Seedbombs keep coming to mind.
A seed bomb is a ball of seeds held together in a matrix by a non-toxic, biodegradable material, making it easier to plant seeds in hard to reach places, such as empty lots found in most cities.
For equinox purposes, you can try holding your seed bomb, quietly infusing it with your intentions for the next season, before hurling it into your nearest abandoned lot or backyard dirt patch, imagining yourself “letting go” of your attachment to the outcome.
For us, seed bombs seems to be the right symbolic tool for what we are wanting more of at this time, which is surrender. To sow the seeds of our dreams, let them go, and really be able to rest in the knowledge that excessively controlling the process severely limits the potential for magic in the outcome.
