TPD regulations in Europe

TPD regulations in Europe

As of May 20, 2017 a new set of rules have come into effect all over the European Union. TPD regulations don’t only affect the sales of combustible tobacco products but also electronic cigarettes and e-liquids. With consumer safety as the main priority, the EU Tobacco Products Directive aims at standardizing a wide range of devices and nicotine containing juices.

This is why the …

August 8 and vaping as we know it

August 8 and vaping as we know it

As you probably know it by now, August 8, 2016 came with new FDA regulations over the vaping industry and started a two year process in which manufacturers have to register their facilities and products if they want to continue selling after August 8, 2018. And this will have a massive impact on all vapers across the United States, since – in the current form – the regulations will allow the sale of new products (released after February 2007) only if they are approved by the FDA. There is still hope that the US Congress will change the date of …

Researchers use social media to study e-cigarettes

Electronic cigarettes have been around four about 9 years now, but never before had their popularity been as high as it is today. However, the billion dollar industry is still unregulated and many vapers across the United States are waiting for the Food and Drug Administration to come up with some clear guidelines about these alternative nicotine delivery systems. But in order to elaborate the regulations that will govern the market for the next year, the FDA needs to understand how exactly these devices interact with users and what are their effects on the medium term on our health. Much …

At the moment of the purchase Blu had a market share of around 10% and about $50 million in sales. Due to Lorillard’s …

Vaping at high voltages could be harmful

Vaping at high voltages could be harmful

A new study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine found that, in certain conditions, vapor produced by an electronic cigarette can contain up to 15 times more formaldehyde than levels normally found in tobacco smoke. Formaldehyde is a colorless gas, with a very strong and distinctive smell that is recognized as a human carcinogen and usually used in the chemical industry for creating certain types of glues and as an embalming fluid in mortuaries. Its presence in the smoke coming from combustible tobacco cigarettes has been long known by scientists and initially it was believed that since …

Ecigs and malware – an objective approach

Ecigs and malware – an objective approach

Like any new device that becomes popular overnight, the e-cigarettes have been subjected to a lot of negative publicity by the media especially with the recent explosions and fire hazards. This is because people like to overreact and generalize and who doesn’t like a good ‘news alert’. While the majority of people, especially those with limited understanding on electronic devices, tend to be scared off by such news, others are outraged that headlines like these don’t benefit anyone and it could keep smokers away from a viable form of inhalable nicotine that comes without the hazards of combustible tobacco. One …

The new tank systems from NJOY

Known a leading supplier of electronic cigarette, NJOY has reinvented itself in order to fight the competition in the battle of the vapor-tank systems. Although the Scottsdale, Arizona company continues to produce disposable and rechargeable cig-a-like models, they have developed a flashy new website to introduce their ‘vape pens’ to the public, which they will be offering in convenience stores, and apparently in vape shops as well, in addition to their online sales. However, their new online site, named ‘How to NJOY vaping’ is not a sales outlet but rather, it aims to be much more. It features 30 short …

No long term effects of inhaled nicotine after testing it on rats

No long term effects of inhaled nicotine after testing it on rats

Vaping is becoming increasingly popular among former smokers but at the same time, it sparks a lot of controversy due to the lack of solid evidence on the long-term effects e-cigarettes might have on our bodies and general health. While generally advertised as much safer alternative to smoking, considering the ingredients in e-liquid and the fact that there’s no combustion to release carcinogens, the truth is that we are still unaware if these devices have some or any side effects if used constantly for years in a row. Vegetable Glycerin and Propylene Glycol are commonly used in other pharmaceutical products …
