|What is "vaping"?
Vaping (pronounced, "vay-ping") is an alternative to smoking. More information can be found on our friend Don's excellent resource site!
Why is vaping better than smoking?
truth is, no one can really say for sure. Vaping is relatively new on
the market, and as such, there aren't any scientific cases for or
against the effects of vaping. When you vape, you do so at your own risk.
However, I will list some of the positives we have found since vaping:
No nasty smoke smell in your hair, clothes, car, house...no smell clinging to you at all.
No more cigarette burns.
No more smoking outside. You can even vape in bed! No more ashtrays to clean.
No more worrying about offending anyone standing nearby.
And...let's not forget the SAVINGS!! On average, our customers report saving around $75-$200 per month! Could you use an extra $75-$200 per month in this economy?
What is the difference between vaping an e-cigarette, and smoking an analog cigarette?
In a nutshell, about 3,996 chemicals.
are 599 additives put into analog cigarettes. Once you start burning a
cigarette, those additives create 4,000 chemical compounds. Some of
which include: carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrogen cyanide and
ammonia. There are forty three known carcinogens in mainstream smoking
and second-hand smoke.
E-cigarettes have approximately 4
chemical ingredients: propylene glycol (polyethylene glycol, or
vegetable glycerin), nicotine, flavoring, and water.
All are water
soluble viscous liquids used in e-cig liquids to deliver nicotine and/or
flavors. They produce the vapor and provide a similar sensation to
inhaling tobacco smoke.

grade glycerin is named Glycerin, USP. Without this exact nomenclature
it is not pharmaceutical grade (any variation indicates that it is not
regulated, and therefore uncontrolled). In the UK it is termed
In the United States it is recommended that you only use USP approved propylene glycol and glycerin.
If you live outside of the U.S., use only pharmaceutical approved Glycerin and/or PG.
Polyethylene glycol (PEG)
A non-toxic compound that is used in pharmaceutical compositions and food additives.

Is vaping FDA approved?
it is not. There are many theories as to why the FDA won't approve of
e-cigarettes, but we won't speculate on that here. $$$
Why do I have to be 18 to purchase a kit?
it's the law. And let's face it, whether you enjoy smoking or not, no
one wants to see a kid with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth
(real, candy, or electronic).
