U.S. proposes stricter curbs on e-cigarette sales

(Reuters) – The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Wednesday released formal plans to curb the sale of flavored e-cigarettes and slow a surge in teenage use of the popular nicotine devices. FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, who has called teenage use an “epidemic,” issued the draft guidelines during his final weeks as head of the agency, after a surprise resignation announcement last week. The proposal would allow traditional retailers such as convenience stores to sell tobacco, mint and menthol e-cigarettes, which the FDA says are more popular among adults than minors. But other flavors could only be sold in … Continue reading U.S. proposes stricter curbs on e-cigarette sales

By 2006, e-cigarettes were introduced in the European market and shortly after would find their way to the United States. Fast forward to present day and it’s not uncommon to find users of this device among various age groups, races, and … Continue reading STONE: Vaping isn’t restricted to nicotine

Still, it’s sometimes difficult to differentiate between marketing ploys and real innovations, as is the case with the most recent buzzwords in the vaping world. Of course, we’re talking about nicotine salts. Although the concept of vaping on something called nicotine salts (or Nic Salts, as it’s abbreviated) sounds a tad unappealing, the hype is pretty real.

The Choice to Be Vaping Salt-Based E-Liquids

Perhaps you’ve noticed that more and more people are vaping slim, tiny pod mod devices. These user-friendly, portable vaping systems are extremely convenient and can provide vapers with a sensation that’s very similar to smoking a cigarette. A lot of that has to do with the type of e-liquid that’s used with these devices. Up until the last year or so, e-juices contained freebase nicotine. This type of nicotine is extremely potent. However, it was never intended for sub-ohm vaping systems. When freebase nicotine is heated to a certain temperature, it feels very harsh against the throat, causing irritation. For this … Continue reading The Choice to Be Vaping Salt-Based E-Liquids
