Mouth-To-Lung vs Direct-to-Lung inhaling
If you’re coming to vaping from smoking, you’ll probably start off inhaling in exactly the same way. However, if you’re committed to sticking to vaping, you might find it worthwhile to experiment with different inhaling techniques. We look at the differences between mouth-to-lung and direct-to-lung vaping, and which one is your preferred approach: Mouth to Lung vaping “Mouth-to-lung” is how you smoke a cigarette – by drawing the smoke into your mouth, then inhaling it into your lungs. This is how most smokes inhale when they start vaping, which makes perfect sense. Here are some tips ..
Smoking vs Vaping – a cost comparison
Of all the myriad reasons to quit smoking – and we’ve already outlined several – one key reason is that smoking is getting increasingly more expensive. If you aren’t ready to quit for the health of your body, perhaps you might consider quitting for the health of your wallet. Perhaps you’ve heard that vaping is cheaper than smoking, and you’re a bit skeptical. After all, vaping requires a new contraption (the vape kit) and refills of e-juice. Surely that’s going to be more expensive than cigarettes? We take a look at the cost of vaping vs smoking, and give you the final answer on what wil..
Formaldehyde in e-cigarettes – what are the facts?
The anti-vape brigade is always at it, trying to scream at the world that using e-cigarettes will cause cancer. One such article from The Sun warns of dangerous substances – including formaldehyde – present in vapor. Formaldehyde, of course, is the chemical used to preserve bodies during embalming, so it presents a grisly image to think it’s in your vape. That’s exactly the image these articles are praying on, trying to scare consumers out of using e-cigarettes. First of all, what you think you know about formaldehyde is probably not true. Just because it’s used in embalming doesn’t mea..
New study reveals more people are quitting smoking thanks to vaping
The CDC recently released a study showing that more people in the USA are using vaping to help them quit smoking than patches, gum, and other FDA-approved methods. To conduct the research, more than 15,000 subjects were surveyed online from 2014-2016 about their attempts to quit smoking prior to the survey. More than three-quarters of respondents used more than one method to help them quit. The results showed that of all respondents, 35.3% attempted to cut down using e-cigarettes, and 24.7% attempted to switch completely to vaping. This was compared to nicotine patches or gum (25.4%), sw..
How vaping can help you deal with nicotine withdrawal when you quit smoking
Quitting smoking can be a real drag, literally. Because nicotine is addictive, your brain is used to getting that hit. When you suddenly deprive it of the nicotine through quitting cold turkey or dramatically reducing your intake, you’ll experience nicotine withdrawal. The symptoms of nicotine withdrawal are different for every person, but generally they involve being an irritable, grumpy person, an inability to concentrate, and physical symptoms like shaking, muscle tension, nausea, or insomnia. It’s this nicotine withdrawal that usually thwarts most well-meaning attempts to quit smokin..
Should you choose a high VG vape juice?
When shopping for vape juices, it can be hard to know where to begin. There are so many choices – one such choice is the option of a high VG vape juice. VG stands for Vegetable Glycerin, and it’s one of the common ingredients used in juices to carry the flavour and nicotine. Most vape juices contain around 50% VG, but some juices have a higher concentration – around 70% VG. We’ve already written about the difference between High VG and High PG vape juices. If you’re thinking of buying a high-VG juice, here are our tips to help you make the right decision for yourself. 1. Are you new to ..
Question: Will vaping hurt my pets?
Many vapers are pet owners – we love hanging out with our furry friends. That’s why we sometimes get asked it vaping around pets is a bad idea. Of course, smoking around your pets has always frowned upon. Many of us forget that all the harmful effects of secondhand smoke can affect our pets. Vaping is significantly safer for any other residents in your home – whether they be of the two-legged or four-legged variety. Your pets will definitely thank you for the clearer air! However, there is one important fact you need to keep in mind if you have a cat: PG is harmful for cats Studies con..
Which PG/VG e-juice is right for you?
If you hang around vapers a lot (and you should – we’re awesome people), you’ll hear a lot of talk about high-PG and high-VG e-juices. You may be left wondering what the hell everyone is going on about. Well, wonder no more. We use the acronyms PG and VG to refer to propylene glycol and vegetable glycerin, respectively. These are two key ingredients in e-juice, and mostly serve as the carrier for the flavour and nicotine, because they’re tasteless and easily turn into a vapor. Most e-juices on the market today will use around a 50/50 PG/VG mix, and that will satisfy the majority of vaper..

Ludicrous parental objections aside, lots..
Our top High-VG vape e-juice flavours
Many vapers love high-VG juices. A high-VG juice produces big clouds, making them great for doing vape tricks. If you don’t like the harsh-throat hit of high-PG juices, or you prefer direct inhale vaping, then high-VG is the right choice for you. If you have never used high VG liquids before just be aware that the thicker viscosity of high-VG juices can cause problems if you don’t have the right kind of tank. Be sure to use a sub-ohm coil system and a high flow tank. In short; to avoid dry burning, make sure your e-cigarette rig is capable of wicking a thick e-liquid. We stock a huge ran..
