    Underage Juuling and Four More Moral Panics

    Interest groups, the media and well-intentioned parents are fuelling a moral panic about underage ‘Juuling’.

    Hungry for views, many news carriers have written countless stories about the ‘epidemic’ of vaping in schools. Some have even spread fanciful concerns about cocaine e-liquid.

    One of the keen drivers behind the moral panic in America has been interest groups like Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. These groups want the FDA to bring in new restrictions that will damage vaping companies.

  7. Mouth to Lung Vape & Direct Lung Vaping Guide

    Mouth to Lung Vape & Direct Lung Vaping Guide

    Millions of smokers have used e-cigarettes to ditch tobacco. And landmark studies have shown that vaping only carries a fraction of the risk of smoking cigarettes.

    But the world of vaping can be confusing for beginners. Just look at some of the terminology involved.

    Sure, you can always ask for advice from your friend who has vaped for years. But an experienced vaper’s set-up probably isn’t suitable for someone who is just starting out.

    One of the first distinctions a new vaper needs to know about is the difference between Mouth to Lung and Direct Lung vaping.

    First and foremost, this is a difference in vaping styles. But it also affects what hardware and vape juice a vaper buys, because some products are optimized for Mouth to Lung vaping and some for Direct Lung

  14. Vaping Helps Stub Out Cigarette Litter

    Vaping Helps Stub Out Cigarette Litter

    Cigarette butts are the most common piece of litter picked up in the United States. Thrown butts are also a big problem on beaches and in oceans around the world.

    Although e-cigarettes still create some litter, making the switch to vaping can help clean up streets, parks and beaches and stop toxic chemicals from used butts leaching into the environment.

    The problem with cigarette butts

    Cigarette butts have consistently made up around 30-40% of all litter items collected in urban and coastal clean-ups. This is despite the fact that smoking rates have been dropping across much of the Western world.

    A Keep America Beautiful roadway litter survey found that - along with other tobacco products like cigars and tobacco packaging - cigarette butts were the single biggest item of litter collected. Butts made up 38% of the 51.2

  15. 10 Things You Should Know Before Vaping for the First Time

    10 Things You Should Know Before Vaping for the First Time

    This is it. You’re ready to vape. You’ll buy some kit, power it up with your favourite vape juice and be ripping fat clouds in no time.

    Well, maybe not exactly. Vaping isn’t complicated, but there are some things that you need to know about if you want to avoid embarrassment and accidents.

    There are different types of e-cigarette 

    While it is tempting to call all the devices e-cigarettes or vapes, there are important distinctions between product categories.

    Disposable e-cigarettes like those made by Blu and NJOY are easily available from gas stations, but they aren’t very powerful. Cigalikes and pen mods are a bit more substantial, but they won’t satisfy everyone.

    It’s when you graduate to a vape mod that vaping gets more fun. These larger devices give bigger clouds and they let you change the hardware and alter wattage or temperature output to suit your preferences.

  17. European Union Considers Tax on Vapers

    European Union Considers Tax on Vapers

    The European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union (EU), is holding a public consultation on the taxation of tobacco and vaping products.

    After postponing a decision on an EU-wide vape tax earlier this year, the Commission could introduce excise duties or ‘sin taxes’ on vaping products in all 28 EU member states in 2019.

    Consumer associations and tobacco harm reduction organisations in 16 EU countries are encouraging European vapers to respond to the consultation questionnaire and sign a petition opposing the tax.

    In a similar consultation in 2016, 90% of respondents rejected the idea of taxing vapour products.

    At the time of writing, the Change.org petition had attracted more than 17,000 signatures.

    Vaping has helped more than 7.5m Europeans stop smoking

    Using data from the EU itself, vape advocates from the Netherlands, France, Germany and the UK, among others, argue that vaping has helped more than

  19. How to Deep Clean Your Atomizer Tank

    How to Deep Clean Your Atomizer Tank

    Vaping is really simple but there are things you need to do to keep your vape in good condition. One thing you have to make sure you do is clean your tank out regularly.

    A dirty atomizer can make your vape taste funny and affect the longevity of your device. You should give your atomizer a quick clean each time you change your e-liquid or replace your coil.

    Here’s a quick cleaning job you can do:

    • Get rid of excess e-liquid by pouring it out or create a spinning centrifuge with a piece of string and a plastic bucket.
    • Remove the coil and rinse the tank out
    • Let the tank air dry and use a Q tip to clean any stubborn spots

    Deep cleaning your atomizer

    If your atomizer looks very dirty or starts tasting foul when you vape, you might have to do a more thorough cleaning job.

    Coils that look brown and burnt will not perform as well as they should. Cleaning these coils requires a deeper clean.

  20. How to Get Your Parents to Vape

    How to Get Your Parents to Vape

    Sometimes, parents need to be parented.

    If your mom or dad has a decades-old cigarette addiction, worrying about their health can feel like a full-time job.

    We have all told our parents to reset the WiFi and to delete those dodgy apps from their smartphones. Now we can help them out again by telling them about the latest technology designed to help adults switch from smoking tobacco.

    We’re up against it when it comes to spreading the benefits of e-cigarettes.

    Every day, there are new sensationalized media reports about epidemics and stealthy new ‘USB-drive’ vapes.

    In fact, the number of Americans who wrongly believe that e-cigarettes are as harmful as or more harmful than combustible cigarettes tripled between 2012 and 2015.

    But out of the hype, a new scientific consensus is emerging. Landmark research
