OPPOSE SA 3547 To Protect Your Rights!

The rights and freedoms of vapers are once again under attack. This time, legislation to prohibit vapers from carrying any vape supplies onto places is being considered, and if it gets passed, carrying your vape gear while traveling by air will be a thing of the past. If you vape, or have anything to do with the vapor products industry, we urge you to do your part in voicing your concern and disgust over this highly imposing regulation to your Senator. You can find your Senator’s contact information HERE.

This is a serious call to action for the entire vape community. Amendment SA 3547 was proposed by Senator Blumenthal, D-CT, and the goal of this action would expand the current list of hazardous substances to include vaping devices and e-liquids, and this would prevent them from being allowed even as carry-on, on planes. Basically, if you are a vaper and you wish to have the ability to travel with your vape gear by plane, you’re going to have to seek alternate options. Beyond ridiculous, right?

What you need to do is contact your Senator ASAP, either by email or phone call, and make it clear that you would like them to oppose SA 3547 in the event it goes to debate on the Senate Floor. As these devices are currently banned from being carried in checked luggage, and banned from use on flights, further bans of simply carrying the items will cause a major disadvantage for those 9 million+ Americans who rely on these products as alternatives to tobacco.

Vaping, and any such usage of vapor devices on aircraft is against the law. Most vapers are aware of this. While vaping has never been allowed on airplanes, recent regulations from the FAA made this explicit; no one was surprised, and few even bothered challenging it, except for pro-vape Congressman, Duncan Hunter, who advocated for the usage of vapor devices on planes. Despite this, it is a major infraction upon the rights and freedoms of vapers who wish to travel, this kind of regulation impedes upon personal free will. To warrant these devices as hazardous is ludicrous; it’s similar to prohibiting cell phones on airplanes as well; the two devices contain similar lithium ion batteries, rendering both at the same level of dangerousness.

So, you know what you gotta do; contact your Senator ASAP! This is an urgent call to OPPOSE SA 3547 if you want to protect your freedoms as a vaper!

Why Your Vape Juice Matters

E-juice is not all the same, and what you’ve got in yours can make a major difference in the performance of your device, your personal satisfaction level, and in terms of what actually goes into your body as a result of what’s contained in the liquid.

So here’s a quick rundown on why you need to go after quality e-liquids. You’ll thank us later!

Ingredients Matter

They really, really do. Our vape liquids are formulated under the strictest circumstances, in an FDA-registered lab, using USP grade Kosher ingredients, and are literally of “inhalation grade” quality. Our glycerin is sourced from soybeans, which means those with peanut allergies will not have to question its origins. That’s right; this is beyond the level of food grade, people; you’re not going to be eating these liquids, so “inhalation grade” is as good as it gets.

USA Made

While it may not matter to you where the majority of things you buy are manufactured, because e-liquids are put into your body, you should definitely take notice of where they come from. USA is the best in this case, especially if you are located in the US. In addition to shorter ship times, you know your juice will never be sitting in customs for an indeterminate amount of time. They’re fresher and made under stricter circumstances. Also noteworthy: our e-liquids are manufactured under cGMP operation standards, the highest standards of production and every bottle is stamped with a lot number so its origins can be traced.

Trust

Like any good relationship, a lot comes down to trust. With e-liquids, you’ve got to trust the brand you’re buying from because there are a lot of shady companies out there. Not trying to get you all paranoid, but always buy from brands you know have solid reputations and are known for what they are doing. Credibility goes a long way, and since you’re putting e-juice into your body, make sure you have some background info on where they’re coming from. Guys in their parents’ garages making juices and selling them online… just steer clear of them.

Vapor Trickery

Big clouds have become kind of a status symbol for those of us in this industry! Some are all about the bigger the better, chasing the craziest devices to get the craziest level of vapor, and some are all about using that vapor to get down n dirty, putting it to work in the form of tricks. Vape tricks.

Have you heard of this new subculture phenomenon? Know a few well enough to perform them at parties? Invented your own? Want to learn how to do ‘em?

Well, in the vape world, vapor is king, and doing vape tricks is like icing on the cake. Not necessary, but an absolutely fun part of playing with that vapor. Here’s a little more about this ever so popular novelty, and how to do some of the most basic tricks. Hey, working with electrical units, perfecting your vape pen, getting the right voltages and watts is important and all, but you gotta be able to kick back and chill too sometimes!

Vape Rings

Like the classic old smoke rings every smoker mastered at some point in their tobacco tenure, vapor rings of the same effect are quite amusing indeed! How to create vapor rings: Inhale the vapor into your throat, keeping your tongue at the bottom of your mouth, edging towards the back of the throat. Put your lips into an “O” shape, and release a small amount of vapor in a single little pulsing motion at a time. The vapor should emerge in an “O” matching your lips!

Ghost Riding

The Ghost Hit creates a mushroom cloud effect. Here’s how to do it: Take a long drag of vapor and allow it to rest in your mouth for a few seconds, then push it all out in a ball, quickly inhaling back in.

Dragon Master

The Dragon allows you to masquerade as a dragon, with vapor spewing out both corners of your mouth as well as your nostrils. To master this: Take a long drag but do not inhale, and once your mouth is full of vapor, exhale it powerfully out your nose, and the sides of your mouth all at once. Ferocious, indeed!

The Very Real & Long-Term Costs of Smoking

Cigarettes are so expensive. Rounding out at around $7 per pack as a nationwide average (which amounts to around $2,500 yearly at a pack per day), and toppling out way higher than that in major cities, who can afford the habit at these prices? And, as exasperating as these figures are, there are a whole host of other ways cigarettes are taking a toll on your bank account. Here is a look at two of the real costs of smoking, and why vapor cigs make a most attractive option.

Insurance
Insurance has become a staple to protect you and your loved ones in a vast array of different areas of your life. From health insurance (a total necessity) and dental insurance, to life insurance, car insurance, and home insurance, most forms of insurance are going to cost you more for being a smoker, and considering that you’re going to have to fit the bill for most of these types of coverage for the majority of your life, you’re looking at a lot of money spent out of pocket over a long period of time.

Hidden Costs
A higher likelihood of getting bronchitis, pneumonia, respiratory issues, and other complications as a result of common illnesses such as colds and the flu are much more of an occurrence when you’re a smoker. In addition, statistics show that smokers lose more time at work, long and short term, and this can be an issue short term because less time worked means less money earned. In turn, this same loss of productivity adds up over time, and it poses the potential to be a massive long term problem because this can affect you by taking a hit on your Social Security and pension earnings, which is supposed to be the nest egg you can rely on during retirement. Imagine the thousands of dollars that you could be saving instead!

Smoking cigarettes can affect so many areas of your life, taking a toll on your finances from so many different angles. While you may set aside enough money to handle the initial cost of those daily cigarette packs, the long term effects and accumulation of costs can be monumental. Why not choose vapor smoking and save?
