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.

Daily Mix Tip: Colored e-liquid? | DIY E-Liquid Blog – E-Juice Makers


Daily Mix Tip: Are you wondering how to get colored e-liquid? Most of the time if you ask this question in a group you are going to get a resounding NO DON’T DO IT!!! Most mixers are profoundly against putting extra ingredients that may potentially have harmful effects, the reason why most say No to food coloring. However, that is not helpful for the folks who may not be worried about safety at that level and may want to color their liquids anyway.

If you want to color your liquids, my suggestion is to stay away from artificial colors as they pose the most potential for safety risk. Nature’s Flavors does carry natural food colorings, they aren’t quite as vibrant as artificial colors, but they will color your liquids. Being natural there may be less cancer risks as those are worries with artificial colors just in eating them, imagine what they could do to your lungs! So if you want to dye your eliquids a color, Go Natural.

Daily Mix Tip: Are you not big on writing down notes on single flavor testers or recipes you’ve mixed? Try recording a quick voice note on your phone, just be sure to title it the recipe or the single flavor that you’re testing and save it to your computer once a month. You can go back and listen to them when you need to refresh your memory. You can even use programs to transcribe your notes for you if you really wanted them in writing!

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.

10 ways to avoid the dreaded spitback – Vaping360


10 ways to avoid the dreaded spitback

Not many things can totally ruin an otherwise enjoyable vape like spitback. One minute, you’re happily puffing out clouds of strawberry-scented vapor and the next you’re approaching your mouthpiece like it’s about to bite you. It’s no surprise that having a hot droplet of vapor spit up from the coil into your mouth isn’t pleasant, but if it happens a lot, it can make a tank or atomizer completely unusable.

The good news is that vapers can stop spitback pretty easily, and even if you can’t, there are ways to work around it.

What is spitback and what causes it?

Spitback is the name for the occasional super-hot droplets of e-liquid that occasionally shoot up at you when you’re vaping. If you watch an RDA coil firing, you can sometimes see this happening, usually accompanied by popping sounds. The droplets spit in all directions, but if you’re unlucky when you’re vaping, one will shoot up into the mouthpiece.

Spitback has a simple cause: e-liquid gets pooled up on the coil itself and gets “cooked” instead of being vaporized. This bubbles and spits in the same way a pot of boiling water does, and with you inhaling from the tip, you can easily suck up a droplet or two. The problem is closely linked to flooded coils, but in some cases it can happen even without flooding.

10 ways to get rid of spitback

Vapers have devised a lot of different ways to prevent or at least reduce spitback over the years. It’s worth trying a few different approaches, but every one of them can help to control spitback, depending on the cause. You might not be able to completely stop it, though, especially if you’re using complicated coils.

1. Turn up the power

If your wattage is too low, you might not be vaporizing e-liquid as quickly as your wick is supplying it. Try increasing your wattage by 5 to 10 W if you have a variable wattage mod.

2. Don’t over-prime your coil

“Priming” your coil is manually dripping e-juice onto the wicks before you first use a coil. If you put too much e-juice in the chamber, you can easily cause flooding issues and spitback. Similarly, if you’re using an RDA and you drip too much, you can also end up with spitback.

The solution is simple: don’t overdo your priming or dripping. You should thoroughly soak the wicks, but not so much that the juice starts to pool on your coils. It might take a few attempts until you get a feel for how much you can add to the wick without causing issues, but if you look closely at the wick you can see when it’s getting saturated.

3. Fire before inhaling

For a simpler solution – especially if you’ve primed or dripped too much – just hit the fire button for a couple of seconds before you start to inhale. The popping sounds should fade, leaving the ordinary, white noise-like hum of vaporization. At this point, you can puff away without fear of spitback.

4. Fix your wicks

If you’re getting spitback and you’re using a rebuildable tank atomizer (RTA), your wick might be the problem. Unlike with sub ohm tanks and dripping atomizers, your wicks sometimes work too well with RTAs. If you don’t block the gap between the coils and the tank with enough wick, too much juice makes its way into the chamber and you get flooding and spitback.

So if spitback is a regular problem for you and you’re using an RTA, you may need to re-wick your coils. It might take some trial and error, but the aim is to cover the channels leading from the tank to the chamber without completely blocking them with densely-packed wick. If you’re having issues with flooding and spitting, you’ll need to use more wick than you usually do, but not so much that you have trouble inserting it through the coil.

5. Soak up e-juice from your tank’s chimney

Although flooding is the most common cause of spitback, the problem can also be made worse by e-juice collecting in the chimney and finding its way back down to your coil. This can be fixed easily: get some rolled up tissue paper, remove your drip tip and insert it down into the chimney of your tank. This soaks up the excess e-liquid and reduces the chance of spitback.

6. Avoid twisted or Clapton coils

Multi-strand coil types often pop and spit due to their design. Twisted coils in particular have a bad reputation for this, but Clapton coils have the same issue. Their design makes it easier for e-liquid to pool on the coil, and so sometimes it’s hard to entirely avoid spitback on these coil types. The easiest advice if you absolutely want to avoid spitback is using a simpler coil instead.

7. Reduce your airflow (or inhale more gently)

Inhaling too forcefully when you vape encourages flooding by literally pulling more e-juice into the chamber. This is easy to solve: inhale more softly, letting the coil and wicking do the work for you. If you’re still having issues, try reducing your airflow setting by turning the airflow adjustment ring usually found around the base of the tank. However, if you reduce the airflow, be careful not to inhale more strongly to compensate – this could just make the issue worse.

8. Switch to a higher-VG e-juice

PG is thinner in consistency than VG, and this means that high-PG e-juices are more likely to flood an atomizer than high-VG ones. If you’re having spitback issues, changing to a higher-VG e-juice can solve the problem by slowing down your wicking.

9. Cover your drip tip

Trident Vengeance Driptip

If everything else fails, there is still a pretty foolproof step you can take to avoid spitback: cover your drip so juice can’t possibly spit back up there. You could cover the tip with a paper towel for a low-tech solution, but many vapers cut down pipe screens (like VLS did in the Vecotr RDA) so they fit into the drip tip. Using either approach, this can physically prevent spitback from reaching your mouth. Many tank and atomizer manufacturers are now incorporating anti-spitback measures like this into their designs like in the original Royal Hunter RDA, because they’re one of the simplest and most reliable solutions to the issue.

10. Get a new drip tip

If you have a 510 drip tip, an alternative to covering your drip tip is getting a drip tip specifically designed to prevent spitback. Angled drip tips make it harder for e-juice to spit all the way up into your mouth. In particular, drip tips with a spherical, ball-and-socket like joint (called “rotatable” drip tips) allow you to put the tip at any angle and will prevent spitback (though too much spitback can pool on the inside). Longer drip tips – especially if they’re curved or have a bend in them – solve the issue in the same way.

You could also try to give yourself distance from the spit. Use a longer tip, something like the Cherryvapes Universal Friction Fit tip. This tip allows you to elongate the airflow path, thus getting further away from the possibility of hot pops reaching your mouth. These tips can really come in handy.

The end of spitback?

If you’re consistently having problems with spitback, the important thing to remember is that you can fix it. Even if the first eight suggestions don’t work, the last two certainly will. You might not be too happy about having to cut down a pipe screen or buy a new drip tip just to solve the issue, but the good news is that manufacturers are waking up to the problem. As anti-spitback measures become more common, we may be entering the post-spitback age of vaping. And – speaking as someone who’s given up on spitback-prone tanks in the past – that time can’t come soon enough.

The Woodsman


A tobacco to fill the manliest of cravings for a smoke after a hard day’s work. The combination of FLV Red Burley and FLV Cured is a tried and true pairing for a smooth and straight forward tobacco flavor.

FLV Red Burley: A thick, woody tobacco with nutty undertones and a full body. This sits right in front, and makes the base for the rest of the tobaccos to rest on. At 2.75% there’s no mistaking this flavor as the undisputed king of tobaccos.

FLV Cured Tobacco: Sweeter than Red Burly, with hints of pecan and cedar, this fills the few gaps in Red Burley. This adds some nice layers of nut and woody tones to the FLV Red Burley Base.

FLV Native Tobacco: The spicy sweet cousin to FLV Kentucky Blend, this is becoming one of my favorite tobaccos to work with. It has a sharp spice note on the front end, similar to a cracked vanilla bean, with a lightly honeyed finish. Very aromatic. A bit of tobacco leather body to finish up the bold tobacco profile.

Additives:

FLV Lovage Root: This is quickly becoming a favorite of mine. On it’s own, it’s very damp and vegetal, and not all together very pleasant. When used in conjunction with these fine tobaccos however, it’s properties align the stars to add a sweet moisture to your tobacco blends. This transforms everything to feel more like still fresh, not fully dried pipe tobacco. Adds a light, barely perceptible additional sweetness. This additional moisture addition also allows you to take your tobacco % a little higher than you would traditionally, as it smooths over any unwanted dry notes that are typical when using tobaccos at very high percentages.

FLV Wood Spice: This adds a fresh cedar finish to our final mix, boosting the woody notes already in the mix into the stratosphere. Surprisingly smooth, I get hints of oak and cedar throughout the vape.
