Premium American Made Eliquid for Ecigarettes & APVs. Voted best ejuice since 2012
Crystal Canyon Vapes focuses on creating the highest caliber e-liquid that is both clean tasting and pure.
AFP - Italy banned the sale of electronic cigarettes containing nicotine to minors on Thursday and forbid their use in schools, amid criticism from a consumer watchdog that the move did not go far enough.
Health Minister Beatrice Lorenzin "bans the sale of electronic cigarettes with nicotine to minors under the age of 18," her ministry said in a statement.
"We don't want to say that electronic cigarettes are more dangerous than normal cigarettes but they should not be used as harmless objects," Lorenzin told Rai television.
Today Crystal Canyon Vapes has created an option to add a Sweet Shot to your ejuice! This has been requested for some time now and we've listened to your feedback.
What is a Sweet Shot?
A Sweet Shot adds a little more sweetness to an eliquid without changing it drastically. Offsetting any sour or tangy notes with more of a naturally sweet flavor. We recommend you only use this option if you are familiar with the flavor and desire a little more sweetness. * This option is not available on Sample Packs as we feel you should try the flavor as intended. ** Consult your physician if you have an allergy or condition that may prevent you from using artificially flavored sweeteners.
All the big tobacco companies are selling e-cigarettes, proponents of which are quick to point out that we don’t regulate coffee.
Tobacco Cigarette and an Electronic Cigarette both containing nicotine
For well over 100 years, tobacco companies have had a product people loved, with a toxic catch. Cigarettes don’t just cause cancer (of the lung, throat, mouth, pancreas, bladder, nose, and more); they can also lead to heart attacks, strokes, and autoimmune diseases. Some 443,000 Americans die from smoking each year. But 44 million Americans still smoke because, as the tobacco companies know, cigarettes deliver an addictive, pleasurable drug: nicotine.
Now the three biggest tobacco companies have a new, tobacco-free way to deliver nicotine. Enthusiasts say “vaping” an e-cigarette—which relies on battery power to vaporize a liquid nicotine solution that the user inhales—delivers all the biochemical rewards and none of the lethal risks, and that it’s time to regulate nicotine like coffee, another stimulant. But can they convince their opponents? “We’re seeing a radical change in how people sell nicotine to the human brain,” says David Abrams, executive director of the Schroeder Institute for Tobacco Research and Policy Studies at the American Legacy Foundation.
The antitobacco community is wary. Big tobacco introduced “light” cigarettes in the 1960s with the promise of a healthy alternative, and they turned out to be just as deadly as the originals. Antismoking advocates aren’t primarily worried that e-cigarettes will do as much harm as regular ones—this would be nearly impossible. They fret that the devices will keep people smoking. The “poly-tobacco dilettante” could be a new breed of smoker, Abrams says. These users might “vape” indoors and other places where conventional cigarettes are banned (fueling their nicotine addiction) and still smoke traditional cigarettes wherever they did before e-cigarettes entered the U.S. market in 2007.
An employee sitting at her desk appears to be smoking a cigarette, complete with puffs of smoke when she exhales. When a shocked manager approaches her, she explains that she's using an electronic cigarette and the smoke is vapor. What does an employer do now?
"For the human resource executive trying to address this right now, the best advice is to proceed with caution," says Tom Glynn, Ph.D., director of both the American Cancer Society's Cancer Science and Trends and its International Cancer Control.
FDA regulations are expected by the end of this year, he says, which would provide more consistency in manufacturing of the more than 200 types of e-cigarettes on the market and better insight into health impacts to help employers make informed decisions.
"If you leave the scientific and health realm and get into the human relations realm, that's one of the biggest things the HR person is going to deal with when, say, an employee complains that someone in the office or cubicle next to them is smoking."
Electronic smoking, or vaping, is becoming more prevalent, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which this February released study results that show that one in five adult smokers in the United States have tried e-cigarettes, up from one in 10 a year earlier. Introduced to the U.S. in 2007, electronic cigarettes -- battery-operated products that vaporize nicotine, flavoring and other chemicals that are inhaled by the user -- do not fall under FDA regulation of drugs or devices because a decision in 2010 from the U.S. Appeals Court for the D.C. Circuit ruledthat e-cigarettes are not considered therapeutic.
The American Cancer Society, like many organizations, still is waiting to hear more on the safety of e-smoking, Glynn says.
"I would say the American Cancer Society finds them intriguing, and a potential -- and please underline potential -- tool for quitting smoking. But electronic cigarettes are still saddled with a lot of question marks."
While the science is still out on electronic cigarettes (one limited 2009 FDA study showed carcinogens in some of 18 varieties tested) and the legal landscape is developing around e-smoking in public, some companies are electing to snuff out this relatively new product in the workplace before those questions surface, says Steven Noeldner, partner and senior consultant in the total health management specialty practice at global consulting firm Mercer.
"It does come up in almost every one of the programs I'm involved in, especially if we're putting a workplace no-tobacco policy in place or a wellness program," Noeldner says. "It's generally true that most employers that impose non-tobacco use programs usually try to be all inclusive. They do include e-cigarettes."
If you're a smoker trying to kick the habit, you may be intrigued by e-cigarettes. These electronic devices have helped millions of users to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes. They get their nicotine fix, but avoid the deadly toxins. Are e-cigarettes safe?
Electronic cigarettes, known as e-cigarettes, are battery operated nicotine-delivery devices. They contain a liquid laced with nicotine that vaporizes when heated. The vapor can be inhaled, simulating the effect and the experience of smoking. E-cigarettes are used by millions throughout the world as an alternative to smoking.
"Nicotine is highly addictive and it does not do your body good. But there are pros to getting away from the burning combustibles that are on fire when you light a cigarette," said Dr. Valerie Frey-McClung from the West Virginia University Prevention Research Center.
THERE can be little doubt that the so-called permissive age is well and truly over.
This may be thought a good thing by some, but while we wrestle personally, within our families and across society, with some of the unintended consequences of social liberation during the 1960s – such as the sexualisation of society at a young age – it is clear that in many other respects the pendulum has swung the other way towards authoritarianism.
All sorts of bans and restrictions on our lifestyle choices have been introduced or proposed by governments of all colours in recent years that reduce personal liberty and remove personal responsibility, all in the name of seeking to engineer a perfect homogenous society with longer life expectancy, irrespective of the quality of our lives.
Slowly the nanny state that tried to warn us against making those wrong choices has become the bully state that firstly punishes us through punitive taxes and then makes criminals of us for ridiculous policies such as smoking in our own cars even when we are alone. While there are legislative milestones that are life-changing – such as forcing motorcyclists to wear crash helmets, occupants of cars to wear seat belts and forcing smokers out of pubs and on to the streets – these restrictions have been gradual enough and usually perpetrated against minorities, so that public opposition is usually muted.
Thus it is no surprise that the non-smoking majority approves of further restrictions against the smoking minority and agree it has been a good thing; that the public thinks that as motorcyclists are coerced into wearing protection for their own good then applying such a law to those on push bikes makes sense; and that if those in the front seats of cars must wear belts then so too should those in the rear.
For a decade, small purveyors of electronic cigarettes have largely had the US market to themselves. Now, with sales projected to double to US$1 billion this year, brands with such names as Logic, Njoy and Vapor are waiting to exhale as giant tobacco companies begin to invade their turf.
In August, Altria Group, the largest cigarette maker in the US, will start selling its MarkTen electronic cigarettes in the state of Indiana. No2 maker Reynolds American plans a national roll-out of its Vuse electronic cigarette, beginning in the state of Colorado next month. Lorillard has boosted distribution of its Blu eCigs to more than 80,000 stores.
Wellington smokers will trial a new inhaler that gives a hit of nicotine without the hundreds of harmful chemicals hidden in cigarette smoke.
The inhaler is based on puffer devices used to deliver medication to asthmatics.
It isn't the first inhaler to contain nicotine but previous prototypes made the nicotine too harsh to inhale, Otago University researcher Brent Caldwell said.
"Nicotine is quite peppery and makes you cough but this can be improved - and our new formula is very tolerable."
Just over 700 smokers are being recruited to take part in a study over seven months. Half will have a placebo and half will have nicotine. All will wear nicotine patches and they will have a month to reduce their cigarette consumption before cutting them out completely and using the inhaler instead.
Dr Caldwell hoped the inhaler would become available wherever tobacco was sold, even though it would mean non-smokers could buy it to get a hit.
E-cigs seemed to be a more pleasurable version of a nicotine patch: something that an existing smoker might switch to for health reasons but not exactly an attractive or glamorous product for someone who doesn’t already smoke. (Humphrey Bogart would not have been as cool in Casablancawith an e-cig dangling between his lips. This is an indisputable fact, not an opinion.) It certainly made sense for Altria, Reynolds AmericanRAI -3.45% and the rest of Big Tobacco to get in on the action; it’s better to extract a little more revenue from defecting cigarette smokers than to lose them altogether.
But investors should be realistic about the potential for e-cigs to make Big Tobacco a growth industry again. It’s not going to happen. Though there are hundreds of millions of tobacco users worldwide (the World Health Organization puts the number of tobacco users at over 1 billion), public health campaigns, legal restrictions, and changing consumer tastes have put cigarette smoking in terminal decline in the developed world. As a sobering (no pun intended) case in point, American teenagers are more likely to use illegal drugs than to light up a cigarette.

Electronic cigarettes are banned here but that has not stopped more smokers from trying to get hold of them and even using them boldly in public.
In the first five months of the year, the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) seized 2,428 units of the smokeless product. This is far more than the 1,464 it detected in the whole of last year. In 2009, only 10 were confiscated.
Local users are able to buy e-cigarettes from overseas websites or when travelling in countries that permit their sale.
INDIANAPOLIS — Minors will no longer be able to buy electronic cigarettes under a lawthat will take effect July 1.
House Bill 1225 – enacted by the General Assembly this spring – makes the sale of e-cigarettes to minors a class C felony. It will also make the purchase of electronic cigarettes with the intention of giving them to minors a Class C felony.
“I don’t like the no-smoking bills, but I understand the law,” said Sen. Sue Glick, R-LaGrange, who sponsored the legislation in the Senate. “If we’re going to have these bills, then we need to not let youngsters smoke.”
Glick said the manufacturers of electronic cigarettes asked lawmakers to support this bill because they didn’t want to sell them to minors.
London businessmen say they have between their lips a cure for what the U.N. calls “one of the biggest public health threats the world has ever faced”.
Electronic cigarettes are the future, they argue. Cheaper, cleaner and cooler than smoking, “vaping” – using a vaporiser to inhale nicotine infused with exotic flavours ranging from pina colada to bubblegum – will spell the end of tobacco.
The top tobacco companies are now placing bets on e-smokes, which some analysts predict may outsell conventional cigarettes in 10 years, raising the counter-intuitive prospect that Big Tobacco could actually help people quit smoking.
Celebrities like Bruno Mars and Courtney Love are also endorsing them, a further inducement to makers of iconic cigarette brands like Marlboro and Camel to invest.
Yet e-cigarettes are far from universally accepted as a public health tool; regulators are agonising over whether to restrict them as “gateway” products to nicotine addiction and tobacco smoking, or embrace them as treatments for would-be quitters.
E-cigarette brands are preparing to ramp up efforts to communicate their quality positioning and reassure consumers in the face of tougher regulations that will see the devices regulated as medicines.
From 2016, all nicotine containing devices must be regulated by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to give the public confidence the products are safe and meet stringent quality standards.
There is currently no specific legislation or advertising code regarding the sale and marketing of e-cigarettes. Following the reclassification of e-cigarettes a medicines, the marketing brands use is likely to come under greater scrutiny and many of the advertising approaches will no longer be acceptable, according to law firm Lewis Silkin.
Tony Scanlan, chief executive of the Gamucci brand, told Marketing Week, that while the brand will not change its overarching marketing message as a result of the new regulations, it will be running communications to reiterate its quality credentials to its retail partners and consumers.
“We already have stringent quality processes and we will go out to our retailers and customers to say our product has been around since 2007 and we will be maintaining that quality. We have hundreds of thousands of satisfied customers,” he says.
He added that while the industry had been expecting a “lighter tough” from Government there is a need for a certain level of regulation to ensure the industry meets quality standards. He claims there are currently smaller operators that do not meet the high standards consumers expect.
Adrian Everett, CEO of E-Lites, says there is a need for “clarification” over the implication that e-cigarettes currently on the market “are not good enough to meet this public health priority”. He adds the statement from the MHRA was “irresponsibly contextualised” because current devices are not classed as medicines and so therefore cannot meet the standards.
The Editor Speaks:
Basically what is being said here is that when the new laws kick is the small business owners will lose out to the corp owned companies. These small businesses that have made the e-cigarette industry the success that it is will no longer be able to afford to operate.
LONDON: Leading tobacco companies are investing in electronic cigarettes as analysts predict that vaping – using a vaporiser to inhale flavoured nicotine – could overtake smoking within a decade.
Bonnie Herzog, an analyst at Wells Fargo bank in New York, told Reuters that the US market alone would be worth more than $1bn this year. And the appearance of celebrities using the product, including the likes of Leonardo di Caprio and Catherine Deneuve, is likely to give the sector a further boost.
"Growth is exponential and there are no signs it's slowing down," Katherine Devlin, president of the London-based Electronic Cigarette Industry Trade Association, told the New York Times.
"There is a huge amount at stake," she added.
The stakes are potentially high for both tobacco companies and ad agencies as e-cigarettes don't use tobacco and are not subject to the same restrictions on TV. "This presents a whole new revenue stream that they haven't had available since 1971," Emma Bazillian of AdWeek told WTVM.
Competition is heating up in the electronic cigarettes industry, but North Jersey manufacturers say they're not worried.
On Tuesday, Big Tobacco company Altria Group, the maker of Marlboro cigarettes, announced it will begin selling an e-cigarette, MarkTen, in August, becoming the last of the three largest tobacco companies to enter the electronic market. On Monday, NJOY, an Arizona-based company that produces the top-selling e-cigarettes brand, said it had received $75 million in financing from investors including Facebook and Napster entrepreneur Sean Parker to fuel expansion.
The battery-powered cartridges that turn nicotine-infused liquid into vapor are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration as tobacco products, but the FDA says the safety and health impact of the devices has not been studied. New Jersey in 2010 banned the smoking of e-cigarettes in public and workplaces.
Executives at three New Jersey companies that have established strong footholds in the fledgling e-cigarette market said the Altria Group and NJOY announcements are a sign that investors and big corporations recognize that e-cigarettes are gaining mainstream acceptance, and have huge growth potential.
"It looks scary, right? It looks like a lot of competitors are coming in, but they're putting such a valuation on our business that we're starting to get interest from some private equity funds now as investors," said Michael Tolmach, chief executive of Eonsmoke LLC, which recently moved from Garfield to a 7,000-square-foot office and warehouse space in Clifton. Tolmach said interest from potential investors escalated "after Sean Parker put his money in the industry."
Tolmach, like other New Jersey e-cigarette executives, said his company's sales are growing so robustly that he isn't worried about future competition.

As the debate continues over the total smoking ban proposed by Health Minister Leos Heger (TOP 09), an American product has debuted in Prague that could render the entire conversation moot. V2 Cigs, the No. 1 online electronic cigarette in America, is at the forefront of a cultural transformation that is nothing short of revolutionary.
Just two years ago, electronic cigarettes were a novelty item that many dismissed as a passing fad. Instead, electronic cigarettes or “e-cigs” have become a billion-dollar business. And their staggering growth is just beginning. “Consumption of e-cigs may overtake traditional cigarettes in the next decade,” said Wells Fargo analyst Bonnie Herzog.
What makes the e-cig such a revolutionary product is that it looks, feels and tastes like a traditional cigarette. But e-cigs uses electronics to produce an odorless vapor, rather than the combustion that produces smoke in tobacco cigarettes.
E-cigs are composed of two basic components, a battery and a flavor cartridge. The battery constitutes the “body” of the e-cig (the “white part” of a tobacco cigarette) and the flavor cartridge is the “filter” part. Anytime a consumer puffs on an e-cig, the battery heats up, turning the e-liquid into an odorless water vapor that delivers the nicotine to the smoker.
Makers of e-cigarettes NJOY has announced that it has secured $75m of new funding and can now count notable tech investor Sean Parker among its backers.
The company announced the funding, which will be used for marketing, clinical trials, research and development, and international expansion, on Monday.
“As an entrepreneur and investor I’m drawn to disruptive companies in explosive new markets,” Parker said. “The common thread between these companies is a missionary desire to leverage technology to change the world. I’m optimistic that the clever application of technology might someday obsolete the combustion cigarette and all the harm it causes.”
Parker, the co-founder of Napster and first named president of Facebook, is no stranger to tech investment and has played a role in the formation and growth of several companies, including Causes which promotes online philanthropy, and the online music streaming service Spotify, which continues to count him as a director to this day.

While tobacco ads have been banned from TV since 1971, the FDA has yet to ban ads for the industry's latest innovation, electronic cigarettes. With that, R.J. Reynolds, the parent of Camel and the brand behind Vuse e-cigarettes is taking advantage of the lack of oversight and advertising what the company claims will be a “game changer," AdAge reports.
At the start, the ads will only appear in Colorado, but the plan is for an eventual national rollout. The campaign will also include print and direct-mail marketing. However, things could change if the FDA announces that it intends to regulate e-cigarettes. Reynolds American CEO Daniel Delen said he believes such an announcement could be “imminent."
Since the Vuse experience is designed to be one that closely mirrors the action of traditional smoking, the target audience, the publication notes, are smokers who have wanted to transition to e-cigarettes. According to AdAge, “more than 40 percent of smokers have tried e-cigarettes, but approximately 80 percent go back to exclusively smoking traditional cigarettes.”
