Frequently Asked Questions
Electronic cigarettes (commonly referred to as e-cigs) are battery powered nicotine delivery systems. E-cigs work by heating a liquid and turning it into a colorless, odorless vapor that is inhaled by the user. Electronic cigarettes come in a variety of styles and vary in size and performance.
Tobacco cigarettes typically contain an estimated 7,000 chemicals. Over 600 of these chemicals are known carcinogens. Cigarettes contain ammonia, formaldehyde, tar, and cyanide, just to name a few. Smoking is responsible for causing 87% of all lung cancer deaths. E-cigs do not involve combustion, so there is no smoke. E-liquid is heated to vaporize the solution. Unlike tobacco cigarettes, e-cigs do not contain carbon monoxide, offensive odors, or second-hand smoke.
Vaping is the term commonly used to describe the use of vaporizers as opposed to traditional (often referred to by vapers as “analog”) cigarettes. The e-liquid is heated by the vaporizer and the vapor is inhaled by the user, hence the term “vaping.” The sensation or “throat hit” is similar to that of a traditional tobacco cigarette, however, without the carbon monoxide, offensive odors, or second-hand smoke.
The primary component of our e-liquid is USP Grade propylene glycol. Propylene glycol is a clear, colorless liquid that is “generally recognized as safe” by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. PG is used in flavor solutions and extractions. For example, PG is used to extract vanilla from vanilla beans. It’s also found in baby care products, mouth washes and toothpastes among many other personal care items. Chances are you’ve been using a product that contains propylene glycol without even knowing it.
We use only USP Grade vegetable glycerin which is extracted from vegetable oils. VG is clear and colorless with a naturally sweet taste. It is easily digested and is often used as a substitute for sugar in soft drinks and coffee and tea flavors. It is also classified by the FDA as “generally recognized as safe”.
Our 100% American made gourmet flavors are what gives our premium quality e-liquid its delicious taste. From bold, complex flavors of quality tobacco to sweet fruity blasts of Jolly Melon, each flavor is crafted in-house to deliver a satisfying, mouth watering experience. Because electronic cigarettes contain nicotine they are highly addictive. Therefore, electronic cigarettes are not recommended for non-smokers or persons under the age of 18.
E-liquid should always be stored in a cool, dark and dry place. Excessive exposure to sunlight will damage the juice and affect the color.
The amount of time it takes to go through a 12ml bottle of e-liquid depends on the frequency of use. Typically, a bottle will last anywhere from 1 – 3 weeks, depending on how often you vape.

We have five (5) nicotine levels to choose from when ordering our premium e-liquid. We usually recommend starting at 18mg; this amount of nicotine is comparable to that of a standard cigarette. However, nicotine levels are a matter of personal preference. The nicotine level is responsible for the throat hit associated with smoking. A higher nicotine level provides a stronger throat hit, while lower nicotine is smoother.
There is no absolute way to quantify the number of cigarettes represented in a full tank of e-liquid, given the fact that the usage frequency varies from person to person. Electronics cigarettes are essentially a nicotine direct injection system, and depending on the level of nicotine chosen, the amount of nicotine dispensed with each puff differs; as does the lung capacity of the each individual which also plays a role into how much nicotine is actually absorbed by the body. Use the electronic cigarette as needed until the craving is curved just as you would with traditional cigarettes. A tank, typically, lasts anywhere from 1 – 3 days depending on frequency of use.
Vaporizers do not produce any ash, odor, or cigarette butts the way traditional cigarettes do. Electronic cigarettes offer a smoking alternative that you can use in many non-smoking environments. It’s always advisable to ask permission before using your vaporizer in public places.
