Australian Psychiatrists Urge Government To Lift Nicotine Ban | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Australian Psychiatrists Urge Government To Lift Nicotine Ban
BY CHRIS MELLIDES

There’s been a shift in the debate over access to e-cigarettes containing nicotine in Australia.

Many psychiatrists operating within the country are urging the government to lift the ban on nicotine, because the mentally ill who are documented as being heavy smokers could stand to benefit from using vapor products instead of continuing to smoke cigarettes.

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) states that the mentally ill are more likely to smoke heavily with life expectancy cut by 20 years compared to the general population, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

It is currently legal to purchase vapor products in Australia, but it’s illegal to sell, possess or use nicotine with them.

The move by the RANZCP is the first instance of a specialist medical college or major health group to go against Australia’s medical community, which is largely in favor of banning e-cigarettes, The Herald reports.

House To Exempt E-Cigs From FDA Rules | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


House Panel Says To Exempt E-Cigs From FDA Rules
Burdensome FDA Regulations came to be under the Obama era, but the Trump administration has delayed enforcement of the new FDA rules. During this delay, a house panel is once again trying to exempt e-cigs from the Food and Drug Administration rules. Legislation approved by the Republican-controlled Appropriations Committee prevents the FDA from requiring retroactive […] #vaping

Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: If you’re looking for an exact 1 to 1 clone of your favorite commercial e-liquid, get that thought out of your mind. Figuring out the exact recipe is generally not going to happen, not because the flavorings are hard to get, but because figuring out the exact percentages and combination is usually damn near impossible for most average palates. To create a Remix of your favorite flavor will require identifying the flavor profile as best you can, write it down, then purchase flavorings you think it might be to test (if you don’t have them on hand.) You can also search through the recipe sites or ask around the groups if anyone has any recipes that resemble that profile, this can help you gather a shopping list. No it is not cheap to recreate a commercial juice, because there are a lot of brands out there, so prepare for buying the same flavor across multiple brands in order to figure out which one it may be.

While you are looking to create your favorite commercial e-liquid, don’t forget to continue to try out or create new flavor profiles you may in turn love even more than your favorite commercial brand. You’ll always have something to vape as long as you keep mixing. http://ow.ly/vQdK30cKsHi

VON ERL. makes distribution deal with big tobacco company – Vaping360


VON ERL. makes distribution deal with big tobacco company

Austrian vaping company VON ERL. has partnered with Fontem Ventures to boost its distribution strength. Fontem is a subsidiary of Imperial Brands, which is the parent company of Imperial Tobacco, the fourth largest international tobacco company.

VON ERL. is the maker of the well-known My. VON ERL., a popular pod system, sold primarily online and through vape shops. According to the company, they’re now available in more than 3,000 outlets in 12 countries.

An alliance with Fontem will give VON ERL. the distribution power of a tobacco company, and allow their products to be seen by substantially more smokers in many more points of sale. This is likely to become a common strategy for mid- and large-sized e-cigarette companies. Vapor Beast was acquired last year by “little tobacco” company Turning Point Brands.

Fontem owns many e-cigarette patents, including Hon Lik’s original Ruyan patent.

Fontem Ventures makes Imperial’s non-tobacco nicotine products, and is best known for the Blu e-cig brand, which it acquired when Reynolds American International (RAI — better known as RJ Reynolds) bought rival Lorillard. Reynolds and Lorillard were forced to divest themselves of some brands (which also included Winston, Kool and Salem cigarettes) by the Federal Trade Commission.

One of Fontem’s purposes when the subsidiary was created was “to acquire, manage, operate, encumber and dispose of property, including patents and other intellectual property rights.” Fontem owns many e-cigarette patents, including Hon Lik’s original Ruyan patent. In fact, along with their 2013 purchase of the Hon Lik/Dragonite patents, Hon himself came to work for Fontem. He still does.

Fontem Ventures has been responsible for good science on vapor products, including funding some studies that were done by independent researchers. The company also created an astroturf advocacy site that recruited vapers through social media to contribute their stories, while hiding its origin. That site shut down quickly after being exposed as a non-grassroots effort.

CDC: vaping is the most popular quit smoking method – Vaping360


CDC: vaping is the most popular quit smoking method

A study released last week shows that vaping is now the most popular smoking cessation product. The only more popular techniques were quitting cold turkey and gradually reducing the number of cigarettes smoked.

The information came in a “research brief” from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), a U.S. government agency, and was published in the journal Preventing Chronic Disease.. The authors include Dr. Tim McAfee, director of the CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health. McAfee has been a staunch opponent of e-cigarettes and vaping.

The study looked at almost 16,000 adult smokers over a period of 26 months. The goal was to determine which of 10 quitting methods worked best. As it turned out, about three-quarters of those who tried to quit used more than one method.

Combining the smokers who either substituted some or all of their cigarettes with vapor products, e-cigarettes were used by more than half of everyone who tried to quit — twice the number that used FDA-approved nicotine replacement therapies (NRT) like patches and gum.

Please ignore our study

Despite the result, the authors thought it necessary to downplay the potential and effectiveness of e-cigs with a flurry of the tired we-just-don’t-know and more-study-needed sentiments. They really want you to quit THEIR way.

“There is no conclusive scientific evidence that e-cigarettes are effective for long-term cessation of cigarette smoking, they wrote. “E-cigarettes are not approved by the FDA as a smoking cessation aid. FDA-approved medications have helped smokers to quit, in many instances doubling the likelihood of success. Finally, we found that most smokers who are switching to e-cigarettes or ‘mild’ cigarettes are not switching completely. These smokers are not stopping their cigarette smoking.”

These folks are willing to do backflips on a tightwire to avoid saying anything positive about vaping.

Well, actually no one smoking “mild cigarettes” is switching at all. “Given that our data show that e-cigarettes are more commonly used for quit attempts than FDA-approved medications, further research is warranted on the safety and effectiveness of using e-cigarettes to quit smoking.”

Perhaps they could ask some of the millions of smokers that have quit cigarettes and now vape instead. But that’s probably too much to ask. These folks are willing to do backflips on a tightwire to avoid saying anything positive about vaping.

The truth is out there

“The CDC has finally acknowledged the popularity of vaping,” Dr. Brad Rodu told the Winston-Salem Journal. Dr. Rodu is a professor of medicine at the University of Louisville, and a well-known proponent of tobacco harm reduction, the substitution of less-risky products like e-cigs and smokeless tobacco for cigarettes.

“This study documents that vaping is American smokers’ most popular quit-smoking aid, despite a broad misinformation campaign labeling e-cigarettes as neither safe nor effective.”

Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association (AVA), told the Journal, “A prior CDC study showed that among smokers who had successfully quit in the prior year, nearly one-fourth were current users of e-cigarettes, a finding that cuts against the outdated claim that there is no evidence that vapor products help smokers get off combustible tobacco products.”
