Study on Benzaldehyde in Flavored E-Cigarettes Gets Blown Out of Proportion by the Media

single_review

A new study published in the Thorax medical journal analyzed 145 different electronic cigarettes and reported the levels of a chemical known as benzaldehyde. The organic compound found in many flavorings was detected in 108 of the samples studied, with significantly higher levels found in cherry flavored products. Since benzaldehyde has been shown to irritate the airways in animal and workplace exposure studies, a number of prominent media outlets took this opportunity...

This Just In – E-Cigarettes May Cause Hearing Loss

single_review

If you thought the war on e-cigarettes couldn't get any worse, you were wrong (again, probably). As if they hadn't been accused of causing enough health problems - without any kind of evidence - e-cigs are now under fire for potentially causing hearing loss. E-cig users vaping nicotine-laced e-liquids may be at risk of losing their hearing. At least that's what the vice president of audiology for hearing aid maker Starkey Hearing Technologies wrote in an editorial posted...

Cambridge Study Finds No Evidence That E-Cigarette Ads Push Kids to Smoking

single_review

As Big Tobacco and e-cig companies continue pouring millions into e-cigarette advertising, there is growing concern that their marketing efforts could have negative consequences on youth, like pushing them to smoking tobacco cigarettes. Considering the history of tobacco ads and their effect on minors, one could argue that such fears are somewhat justified. However, a Read More...

French Vapers Come Up with Ingenious Way of Giving Regulators a Piece of Their Mind

single_review

The French vaping community has received some serious blows recently, after Parliament adopted a new Health Act containing a very strict framework for the use and marketing of electronic cigarettes - vaping is no longer allowed in public spaces and in enclosed workplaces and advertising has been heavily regulated. Furthermore, the adoption of the EU's new tobacco directive without its provisions being discussed in the National Assembly is set to render vaping virtually...

The Milkman E-Liquid Review

The Milkman is a premium e-liquid line from a company called The Vaping Rabbit. Although it currently consists of only two flavors - The Milkman and Churrios - they are some of the most popular on the market right now, and as someone who loves milky creamy vapes, I just had to try them. The first thing that drew me into coughing up over $40 for two 30 ml bottles of The Milkman was the clever marketing. The labeling is simple yet elegant, but the true stroke of genius was packaging the...

The Schwarz E-Liquid Review

Two weeks ago, if someone told me I would one day be vaping yogurt and like it, I would have probably laughed in their face. I mean, with so many appealing flavors to choose from, why would anyone vape yogurt? But that was before I tried The Schwartz, a unique yogurt-based e-liquid line, and had my mind completely blown. I have to admit, the main reason why I spent $48 on The Schwartz was curiosity. I'm not the biggest yogurt fan and I didn't have my hopes up about these four flavors, but I...

Joyetech CUBIS Tank Review

If you're in the market for a new tank that's super easy to fill and actually leak-proof, then you might want to give the Joyetech CUBIS a try. The Chinese manufacturer has really gotten creative with the design of its latest tank, and the results are very interesting. The Joyetech CUBIS kit comes in a small cardboard box that contains the tank itself, three different coil heads, a spare clear glass drip tip, a user manual and a small card with instructions to avoid dry hits. Considering...

Blaq Origins E-Liquid Review

Blaq Origins is the first and so far only flavor from a new company called Blaq Vapor. I can say I took a bit of a chance spending $22 on a 30 ml bottle of this stuff, considering I didn't know anything about it, but the number of positive reviews from other fellow shoppers told me it was worth the risk. It turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. Despite doing quite a bit of searching online, I wasn't able to learn a great deal about Blaq Vapor. Their website, though elegantly minimalist...

DRPN Donuts E-Liquid Review

Donuts are among the worst-represented treats in the vaping game right now, but one Los Angeles e-liquid maker is trying to change that. As its name suggests, DRPN Donuts specializes in donut flavors, and even dough (pun intended) their lineup currently only numbers three juices, they are all among the best I've ever tried. I had never heard about DRPN (drippin') Donuts before ECC 2015, in August last year. Sadly I couldn't attend the convention in Pomona, but I remember people taking to...
