RĒL Vape offers consumers a sophisticated line of stylish, sleek and discreet personal vaping products that deliver superior flavor, potency and a reliable experience every time. Back in May, one of MAGNETIC’s trusted reviewers tried out their Goliath vape pen and said, “Pulling on it is basically effortless, quality is so on point it just as well passes for an orgasm, and above all else, device functionality is remarkably masterful.” It doesn’t get much better than that.
After such a glowing report, we connected with RĒL Vape brand ambassador Stephanie Kerns to learn what she’s all about, and most importantly, what music she listens to when she’s toking up. She says, “I finally found cannabis after exhausting all possibility with Western medicine. I’ve been an Oregon Medical Marijuana Program (OMMP) member for eight years and it’s changed my life in every way. Music has always been a huge part of my life, too. I don’t know what I would do without it. Cannabis and music bring out so many different emotions in me. There were many songs that almost made the list, but I feel like these five will take you on quite the journey.”

“Come Down” by Anderson .Paak
I just can't get enough of this artist. In addition to being a talented drummer, singer and lyricist, his charisma flows out of the speakers and into your heart and soul. I like soul music...Motown, James Brown...funk. Anderson delivers all of this in “Come Down.” I love this as a sativa type song because it makes me dance, dance, dance! My favorite line is "That's a whole lotta refer / Let me help you with the pre-roll!"
“Soldier” by Erykah Badu
Erykah is an artist I have admired and listened to for a long time. Her voice is always charged with emotion, heart, soul, and sass. And sometimes, it’s quite political. I love the message of “Soldier.” She talks about the revolution of loving yourself. These lyrics always get me smiling and pumped for the day. It’s one of my favorite songs to play in the morning. It pairs well with uplifting strains, for sure!
“The Lantern” by Beats Antique
I worked at one of the first dispensaries in Portland. In 2011, the manager (named Dallas) was nice enough to buy a bunch of tickets to Beats Antique and he insisted everyone go. I knew nothing about them. When I got there, I couldn't believe my eyes or ears. They are an incredibly talented band with a unique sound. But wait, there's more. They have an amazing belly dancer named Zoe Jakes. Her dancing combined with the unusual funky music blew my mind. “The Lantern” is one of my all time favorite indica-type chill songs. It’s trippy and beautiful, like the band themselves.
“Double Trouble” by Mos Def feat. The Roots
“Double Trouble” is another uplifting tune that makes me dance. I have been smoking to this song for a good deal of time. It’s a timeless classic. Both Mos Def and The Roots are some of the best live entertainers I have ever seen. I’m grateful for the gift of music that they keep giving.
“Watermelon Man” by Herbie Hancock
Talk about a funky song. This man has been making amazing music spanning all genres and he’s worked with so many people in the music industry, sometimes only behind the scenes. Don't be surprised if you see him in a cameo playing the piano in a movie. This song is a hybrid because it is chill and funky. A true gem, for sure.
