1. I’m new to vaping, what is it?
A: Firstly, Vaping is not smoking
Ecigs / Vaping is intended for current adult smokers , that wish to continue enjoying their nicotine habit at a reduced risk.
Vaping utilizes a Propylene Glycol or Vegetable Glycerin based liquid, mixed with small amounts of nicotine and food grade flavoring that then get vaporized in a small battery powered atomizer, Simulating the experience of smoking. The vapor created is inhaled and exhaled much like cigarette smoke hence the term “VAPING” as opposed to “SMOKING”.

2. I smoke a couple cigarettes a day, what nicotine level is recommended for me?
A: It depends on what type of cigarettes, but the average nicotine level for an average smoker would be between 6mg-12mg. Obviously if you are smoking a pack a day of Marlboro blacks, I would recommend a higher nicotine level of 18mg or 24mg. On the flip side, if you smoke socially and like the nicotine buzz of a cigarette I would recommend a 3mg or 6mg.
The easiest way to relate this information is like this:
3mg – Ultra light cigarettes
6mg – Light cigarettes
12mg – Medium cigarettes
18mg – Full flavor Marlboro Reds
24mg – Rolled filterless tobacco
3. What is PG and VG? Is it safe for me?
A: PG is propylene glycol which is used in inhalers and in the medical field to help transmit the vapor down your throat into the lungs. Its also used as a flavoring carrier in food products, as an ingredient in food coloring and also used as an additive in various medicines. A combined base of PG/VG blend is much more smooth then 100% PG base. Propylene glycol is non-toxic.
4. How much would it cost for me to start?
A: A basic package that includes a battery, tank, charger, and e-juice starts around $45.00
5. What are the benefits of vaping?
A: If you are quitting smoking tobacco products, the benefits are endless. No carcinogens, tar, carbon, or harmful byproducts that would otherwise be found in tobacco or hookah.
6. There’s so much to choose from, what setup should I go with?
A: Depending on the level of experience you have with vaping, we would always suggest contacting us either through livechat, email, or by phone so we can further assess what products would fit your needs the best.
7. What is a sub-ohm?
A: To understand what sub-ohm is you have to understand what the term “ohm” means. An ohm is the measurement of resistance against the coil inside of your tank of dripper. So sub-ohm is any resistance under 1 ohm. The benefits of this are more vapor production and flavor tasting.
8. I have a stick pen and want to put a sub-ohm tank on it, will it work?
A: Simply, no. A simple stick pen build (for example a Vision Spinner 2) does not have enough power in it to cause sufficient resistance against the coil to power it. This is where the more advanced mods come into play.
9. What’s the benefit of having more battery power? I have a 30w box why should I upgrade to 50w?
A: Many benefits, more battery life, more advanced builds if on a dripper, and being able to equip and power different types of tanks and dripper heads. Basically, it allows you more customizability when going into more veteran attachments.
10. What’s the difference between a sub-ohm tank and building your own coil on a dripper? Don’t they do the same thing?
A: A sub ohm tank has pre built coils that are easy to put in and replace, costing about $4.25 every 3 weeks. The provide sufficient cloud production and flavor, and you can fill the tank and forget about it. A sub ohm is not beginner and isn’t quite veteran, but more of a middle ground for most vapor enthusiasts. This option allows you to vape on the go and not have to worry about refilling the tank until 80 or so hits later.
A dripper mod is a veteran tool allowing you to customize your own build and giving you the option to maximize flavor, cloud production, or both. On a dripper you build your own coil out of a selection of 3 different types of supplies: kanthal, nichrome, and nickel wire, each have their own benefits but we can get into that later. Once the coil has been built you then put your own cotton in the coil, threading it through the middle. Some people like more cotton, some less, again it provides full customizability to your dripper. You drip your liquid onto the cotton and then vape away, keep in mind depending on the ohm reading of your build and amount of cotton you will need to drip every 2-5 hits. This option allows you to have full customizability for your setup but requires attention.
