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..
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 ..
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..
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..

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..

If you’re trying to quit smoking, you’ll know how hard it can be to kick the habit. Any tool that will help would be a great asset. But what’s going to help more – e-cigarettes, or nicotine patches?

Our e-cigarettes have helped hundreds of New Zealanders to quit smoking. Here’s why we believe e-cigarettes are more effective than other tools. 1. They give you something to do with your hand..
A long-term study published in the Annals of Modern Medicine shows that e-cigarettes are safer and less toxic than ordinary cigarettes. Why? Well, here are the top reasons: 1. E-cigarettes help reduce cancer risk We all know how closely smoking has been linked to lung cancer. Scientists in the UK discovered that people who swapped smoking regular cigarettes for e-cigarettes for at least six months had much lower levels of cancer causing substances in their body than people who continued to use the conventional cigarettes. People who used e-cigarettes while continuing to smoke did not show..

With so many different vape juice products on the market, and lots of conflicting information about product safety, it can be hard to know what to expect. Here, we break down some of the key ingredients you should be looking for in a quality vape, as well as what to avoid: 1.

Not all vape stores are created equal. As vaping has grown in popularity over the years, we’re seeing more disreputable stores popping up trying to make a quick buck off vapers. When choosing a place to make your vaping purchases, take into account these four key features of a trustworthy vape store: 1. The vape store tests and screens their suppliers Some vape stores will sell any product, especially those that come with a cheap price tag. But cheaper isn’t better in the vaping world, and some cheap suppliers could be that way because they use inferior or unhealthy ingredients, or unsaf..
