• The Story of Mouth-To-Lung Vaping

    By Ivan Srsen Posted December 27, 2017
    mouth-to-lung vaping

      The other day I was cleaning my garage and I stumbled onto a treasure trove. Or a clearomizer graveyard, whatever you want to call it. I was over the moon! I didn’t see some of that gear for years, and a trip down the memory I experienced was actually a roller coaster of emotion. My Vivi Nova was there, along with the awesome (for that time) Protank Mini. Seeing […]

    Smoking Memes

      The whole process of quitting smoking is pretty grueling and when you decide to finally do it, you need to stack the odds in your favor. You have to have your vape, your support circle, your patches, your carrot sticks…the list just goes on and on!   However, sometimes all you need is a good laugh to stop you from slipping up. That’s the point of these quit smoking […]

  • The Illustrious History of Vaping – From Hookahs of Yore to First E-Cigs

    e-cig history

      If you’re new to vaping, you might be under the impression that it’s a relatively new thing. You would only be partially right – the first e-cig (as we know it today) was only introduced in 2003, in China, from where it spread to the rest of the world during the following couple of years.   However, vaping has a far richer history – although the act itself wasn’t […]

      In the past several years, the war on smoking has been intensifying ever so slightly. Numerous health organizations are joining in; holding rallies, quit campaigns, producing anti-smoking commercials, and so on. We still have a long way to go, but, at least, we seem to be on the right path.   However, while the use of combustible cigarettes seems to be going down, a much more sinister practice is […]

  • A Clean Vape Pen Is A Happy Vape Pen – A Guide to Cleaning E-Juice, Wax & Dry Herb Vape Pens

      Keeping your vape pen clean is the real secret of getting a consistently good flavor out of it. When you think about it, it makes perfect sense. Regardless of the vaping material you use, it will eventually build up in the heating chamber (or the tank) and might completely alter the taste you’re getting, making it rather unpalatable after a while. There are also health and safety issues involved […]

      When you step into the vaping world for the first time, you will probably be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of terms that get casually thrown around; vape pens, regulated mods, unregulated mods, mech mods, sub-ohming, and so on. Stop and catch your breath – the important thing to remember is that none of it matters. You can generally just walk into a vape shop where an employee will […]

    easy ways to clean your vape tank - featured

      Cleaning your vape tank can seem like a frustrating chore but if you’re looking for a superior vaping experience, it’s one that should be undertaken on at least a semi-regular basis. Whatever you use – a tank, an RBA, or an all-in-one device – after a while, it will get both dirty and smelly.   How often you clean your vape tank depends on several things. For example, you’ll […]

  • How to Deal With Burnt Vape Taste – Vaping Without Nasty Surprises

    Burnt Vape Taste

      Getting a burnt taste from your vape is one of the foulest things that you can experience as a vaper. There’s one thing that’s worse – having a venting battery in your pocket – but, trust me, the bad taste that you get from a burnt coil ranks pretty close. To minimize this particular unpleasantness, I’ve prepared a short guide on what causes those burnt taste mishaps and how […]

    how-to-vape - featured

      Stepping into the vaping world can be both intimidating and confusing. Part of the reason is the (undeserving) bad press vaping is getting lately. However, the bigger problem is definitely the fact that there’s just so much information out there. Terminology, different types of products, different styles of vaping – very few write-ups are beginner-friendly so dipping your toe in such a vast sea can seem frightening. The simple […]

    organic

      The world has gone bananas over organic in recent years. Pretty much everything we buy these days has an organic version, and that organic version usually has a rather exorbitant price tag. It was really only a matter of time before we started seeing the word ‘organic’ slapped on vape juice packaging.   So, what’s the deal with organic?   The term organic signifies that something was produced following […]

    As vaping gains popularity, Big Tobacco companies struggle to come up with products that would appeal to younger generations. Let’s face it – these days, absolutely everyone knows that smoking will kill you. It kills 1 out of 2 people who smoke so it’s essentially a rigged game of Russian roulette. We know it and the tobacco companies know it. That makes it slightly more difficult for them to peddle […]

    The US Food and Drug Administration has declared a war on vaping products some time ago now. August 8th, 2016 marked the day when e-cigarettes and other vaping accessories (such as vape juices and other vaping gear) started being considered ‘tobacco products’ under the Tobacco Control Act. This changed everything, both for vapers and for vaping businesses.   We were left with numerous questions – is vaping now illegal? Did the […]

      It’s all over the news these days – ‘a vape pen explodes, costing a man five of his teeth’; or, ‘an exploding vape damages property, man runs for his life!’ Honestly, I could go on and on, but I guess you get the general idea. Naturally, all of this is very scary, especially if you’re a beginner vaper.   To combat the mass hysteria that’s all too evident on […]

      Vapers come in all shapes and sizes and in my 8 years of vaping I’ve never seen two people who vape exactly the same. We’re all different but we’re still united in our love of vaping. However, like every subculture out there, we’re prone to stereotyping and putting people in boxes. It’s just our human nature.   Some of those stereotypes are funny, some are just a little bit […]

  • Is It Possible to Vape Pure Water – Or Even Alcohol?

    By Ivan Srsen Posted November 14, 2017
    water and alcohol for vaping

    New vapers have a lot of questions but perhaps one of the weirder ones is whether or not is possible to vape pure water. Some even go as far as to wonder the same about alcohol. In all fairness, this probably has a lot to do with the fact that common vaping suspension liquids are called Propylene Glycol and Vegetable Glycerin, which sounds rather chemical and therefore ominous. Water, on […]

      If you’re wondering who made vaping popular in among Hollywood celebrities, the answer is Leonardo Dicaprio. This actor, producer, environmental activist (among other things) has been vaping for nearly a decade now – ever since the industry was in its infancy – and he was never shy about it.     These days, tabloids are full of famous people clutching their vape devices, but back in 2009 vaping was […]

    The New England Journal of Medicine formaldehyde study made a lot of people scared about formaldehyde in e-cig vapor. The research was heavily criticized, but the authors brushed off issues as “speculation.” They can’t do that anymore. Now yet another peer-reviewed study has clearly demonstrated that the original study’s method was massively flawed.
