Stop Buying E-Liquids Made in China!

The flavored e-liquids for e-cigarettes are no longer made just in China. They are now produced in the United States and other countries around the world. The e-liquids made in China have real problems and the potential for serious issues in the future. There are several reasons why you should stop buying e-liquids made in China.

No Monitoring or Regulation
One of the first reasons to stop is that the Chinese made e-liquids are not subject to the same monitoring and regulations as flavors made in other countries. Some manufacturers claim to have high standards. Others list ingredients on the side of the packaging. The reality is that there is no monitoring or tight regulation. These Chinese companies could be filling the e-liquids with chemicals that are harmful to humans. This should be reason enough to avoid Chinese e-liquids.

Poor Quality and Flavor
Another reason many people and e-cigarette retailers are already avoiding liquids made in China is quality. Many of the e-liquids coming out of China simply have a very bad taste. Some have a strong chemical aftertaste. Others just taste strange no matter what flavor is listed on the packaging. This makes vaping far less enjoyable. Part of this is likely because quality control is sometimes sacrificed in China in order to lower costs and improve production times.

E-Liquids made in China suffer from consistency problems. Flavor liquids from one imported batch might have different properties than the next batch. This means you cannot rely on these e-liquids since the next one you buy might be completely different from what you were expecting. This is no way to vape. It is far better to simply rely on e-liquids that have not been imported from China.

Potential Damage to Electronic Cigarettes
You have no way of knowing what is contained in the e-liquids produced in China. The manufacturers could be using a range of ingredients or chemicals intended to lower costs without regard to how they react with atomizers and tanks. This means the wrong combination of chemicals could damage an e-cigarette or degrade performance. There is no reason to risk damaging a favorite e-cigarette with these liquids when so many other options are available.

Support the Local Economy
A final reason to stop buying e-liquids made in China is to support your local economy. Buying e-liquids from the country where you live will help to create jobs and keep those companies in business. Patronizing brands outside of China makes it possible for those companies to grow and offer a wider range of e-liquids in the future.

The Populairty of On-Campus Vaping

Across the world, increasing numbers of people are looking to make the switch from traditional tobacco cigarettes to electronic cigarettes in a bid to lower the antisocial aspects of smoking and to live a better lifestyle. As students around the world look to embark on a new life at college, a growing number are switching to vaping as their chosen form of smoking as they look for the best options for a better alternative on campus. Stricter controls are being implemented on many campuses, but vaping can still provide many with a good option for smoking in areas where traditional cigarettes are not permitted.

For students, the chance to vape can provide many benefits over traditional cigarettes, which can include the chance to inhale less nicotine and to do so in a cleaner way than the use of a traditional cigarette. An e-cigarette uses a cartridge containing liquid nicotine that does not contain the many harmful ingredients that are commonly found in traditional cigarettes and lead to many of the antisocial aspects of smoking. Because an e-cigarette does not need to be smoked to the end of the cartridge the individual smoker can often lower the amount of nicotine they take in during an average day on a college campus.

Life on campus is often busy and filled with fun and a little stress, which leads many students to take up smoking. Finding a cleaner way that does not include the strong smells created by burning the wrapper and ingredients of a cigarette can make it easier for a student to make friends on campus. An e-cigarette emits water vapor, which does not produce a strong odor or cover clothes and the surroundings area with the smells associated with traditional smoking. Vaping is another option for those who are living the busy life of a college student as a few puffs on a vaporizer can satisfy the need for nicotine and be flavored with different options.

Some college campuses still allow students to vape on campus in areas where traditional smoking is forbidden. Following the rules is an important thing to do and vaping in class may not be the correct thing to do on most campuses. As vaping is seen as less controversial than other smoking options the chance to vape in public should not be missed for students at colleges across the country.

The Double Barrel Legend

Legend has it, an old prospector traveled west during the gold rush, bringing along his favorite, smooth rich tobacco blend. He stored it in two empty barrels of butterscotch.
Along the journey, his tobacco took on the sweet creamy flavor of the butterscotch and created a smooth, slightly sweet flavor.

Later after not having struck gold, the prospector began barreling tobacco with a blend of butterscotch and unsweetened caramel. This flavored tobacco quickly became popular in the local towns and saloons.

Till this day, no one knows exactly how the old prospector created his smooth, slightly sweet blend known as "Double Barrel No 5". But we have managed to recreate that same smooth rich tobacco with a decadent butterscotch and hints of caramel! Easily an all-day vape, you will not have to go prospecting to enjoy the legendary blend No 5!

A Brief Overview of Variable and Standard Voltages

For those new or in the beginning stages of vaping, you might be asking yourself, “what’s the difference between variable and standard voltages?” The direct, real short answer: It is all in the vape! For instance, were you a heavy or frequent smoker? How much vape can you handle? Let those questions help guide you in your decision-making process when it comes to choosing the right vaping device.

Are you looking to control or want to adjust the amount of vapor you create, then the variable voltage is an option to consider. With that said, you need to know about the types of voltages, because if you adjust your device too high for instance, it will become too strong and can give your e-liquid burnt taste. To avoid this, the coil, when encountering this voltage, must stay wet and clean at all times, no exceptions. If you don't have a real idea for what you are doing, it may taste like burnt liquid. Variable voltages use a 6-volt battery. A variable voltage has 6 volts and with an average of 3-ohms, it can create 12 watts of vaping power. The best part is you can control it, and it is compatible with any cartomizer that has identical threading. Those that need more vapor, flavor, or a stronger throat hit, especially if you were once again former heavy smokers, you may prefer variable voltages. Most MODs out there today are the go-to-devices when it comes to these features.

Standard voltages have a quick recharge, are less expensive, and are simplistic to understand. With a standard voltage device, you produce less vapor. Most devices use 3.7 volt batteries and 2.5-ohm cartomizers, producing a little under 5.5 watts of vaping power. Again, standard voltages are simple to use, but the downside is you are unable to adjust the levels. For those new to the vaping world or prefer less vapor, then going standard may be the best option for you. The vaping devices, such as your basic e-cigarettes, areless expensive and easy to use. They make for awesome starter kits, and, youcan always upgrade if you do feel that it is not strong enough for your taste.

Your choice really depends on the amount of vapor you want to produce! Want more, go for variable voltage devices such as using most types of MODs. If want less, stick with the standard voltages such as using e-cigarettes. In the end, it’s all about your vaping preferences. For either option, check out our vaping hardware today.

There are several reasons that today’s generation has chosen to vape rather than continue to smoke harmful tobacco cigarettes. The question on a lot people’s minds is why is it so widely popular among the 18-35 audience? Could it be that growing up, with an array of ads on television and on billboards that condemned smoking cigarettes, pushed this generation to find a better alternative to smoking? No matter how you view it, “Generation V” is here to stay with vast knowledge, creativity, and unique ideals.

With a ton of options out there,especially here at Crystal Canyon Vapes, from starter kit e-cigarettes to MODsand RDAs, this generation has built-up the vaping world. For instance, when it comes to MODs and RDAs, this generation seems to have a better understanding for how certain principles apply to producing a unique vaping experience. Coil building and even dripping have become the norm amongst today’s vapers. You see, these vapers have delved deeper into the specifics of how a unit works and the principles behind each device.

These standards behind how exactly an e-cigarette, portable vaporizer, or MOD works is now taught and understood with basic principles taught in science classes across the world. Comprehension of Ohm’s Law, Amps, and how the resistance of coils can vary, gives today's vapers options that far exceed that of just turning the device on. Single coil versus duel coils, the gauge and wraps of each coil, and how Amps and Ohm's correlate in not only generating that cloud of vapor that is so sought after, but the maximum flavor production one desires. Every vaping device simply put, is unique when it comes to these things.

When it comes to e-liquids, today's vapers enjoy juices with a nice throat hit, have dynamic flavors, and the ability to create large clouds of vapor. When you look at the cloud chasing tournaments for instance, these vapers have the most up-to-date MODs and the e-juices to vape with that contain high amounts of VG for their cloud chasing needs.

Now, the plethora of information that is at our fingertips is a huge factor. We are in the technological age of research, and this generation has the power to simply type a couple of words relating to their interests and find a wealth of knowledge relating to their search. They can find written directions, blogs, videos, and ways to spark ones imagination on how they can make their experience the most pleasurable one.

Finally, the world of vaping has opened the door for a social aspect that allows vapers to be able to connect. Online: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. Physical locations: vape expos, vapor lounges, etc. These social aspects of the vaping community are a huge contributing factor to how this generation of vapers has grown in such a short amount of time.

The only question (with an easy solution) now that this Generation V faces, is to build or not to build!
