There are many promising storeowners who have dreams of creating an e-liquid line after years of extensively practicing DIY, though there are core differences between practicing DIY solo and+ selling DIY e-liquid.
To begin, if a vendor practices DIY and mixes something incorrectly, that shop owner could be held responsible for that person being sick. In addition, the funds needed to make liquids on a mass level requires time, energy and lots of money. Labs must be sanitary and all ingredients should be USP grade.
Shop owners are finding great success in wholesale fabrication programs, specifically those located in the USA. This is because these retailers order in bulk from Asia (the vaporizers) and then make e-liquid which can then be catered to the storeowner’s preference. From VG:PG to added flavor enhancers, these wholesale programs take all of the hard work out of the process.
In addition to providing branding and wholesale vaping supplies, fabrication departments also take care of the language barrier issue. Most shop owners spend countless hours, even weeks, trying to make sure that their order is correct. This in conjunction with long shipping periods, issues with customs and incorrect orders can drive any shop owner crazy, if not broke.
The best custom branding company for e-liquid and vapor devices is going to be a large and reputable company. It is very important to read all of the fine print, as some companies will make shop owner’s sign contracts, pay fees and will even put their logo on items as well as the shop owners’. It is important to find a custom e-liquid company that puts all of the information on the table.
Shopping wholesale and designing branding can be fun! Shopowners are going crazy creating fun designs on unique bottles with their own clever names and slogans. While some of these shops pay a price and then are done, others are bound by contract and stipulation.
It has been proven that a little touch of something special can make all of the difference in the world. By using a wholesale company, vape shops are able to cater their devices and inventory to their demographic, a unique benefit that will secure e-cig stores with future sales, as a pen’s battery is like an advertisement.
Some smoke shops start out by using a wholesale program and then verge into personal DIY for their demographic after climbing out of that initial debt. Some of these wholesale distribution companies do not force owners into contract, thus, when the shop expands, that shop can cut ties and keep their branding.
For vapor shops that expand, and for storeowners seeking to distribute on a larger scale, programs are available which can merge and ultimately propel vape shop’s to success.
Electronic cigarettes and vaporizers have been heavily scrutinized by health advocates ever since their emergence in 2002. Originally, e-cigarettes stemmed from China and were patented by Hon Liik, who was inspired to create the device after his father died of lung cancer. Though Hon Liik is credited for making the first electronic cigarette, it was actually Gilbert who first drafted the initial design. Gilbert’s version of the e-cig was much different than Hon’s, though Gilbert thought of it first.
Gilbert was unsuccessful with his invention for various societal reasons, including the lack of knowledge concerning ailments like lung cancer and emphazyma. The nightlife was huge, and mainstream America was getting its kicks via booze and cigarettes, which as stated, were not thought to be hazardous. Even doctors smoked and endorsed these cancer-sticks. Cigarettes are, and were, legal. Currently, smoking is the number one cause of preventable death and claims 6 million lives each year.
Today, health advocates are considering e-cigs to be the ‘new tobacco cigarette’, claiming similar tactics as the wretched cigarette corporations; that e-cig companies are targeting kids, hurting smokers and are a huge public health concern. In all actuality, there are NO definitive tests which confirm that e-cigarettes, which utilize VAPOR are even comparable. The fact is, tobacco cigarettes involve burning pesticide-drenched plant material while e-cigs utilize water (not ‘fire’) with pharma-grade nicotine (the same as in the FDA approved patch) and flavor additives, many that are on the FEMAS list of approved additives. The two main ingredients propelyne glycol and vegetable glycerin are both known substances that are also FDA approved. What is not approved are these ingredients used in conjunction.
The real dilemma affecting society is the “needed research” over a longitudal period of time; something that dying and addicted people do not have- they need a solution now. Currently, electronic cigarettes are showing promising results, as many published studies have confirmed that smokers naturally wanted to quit (even when having no initial intent)- a miraculous discovery that is still being explored by hundreds of researchers, While there are still negative, propaganda-driven studies cluttering the web, the proof is always in the pudding. There are countless counter-studies which negate nearly all of these, including the most recent formaldehyde explosion which was, negated.
A generational study will require just that- smokers still smoking while the FDA scratches its butt and studies for years. Most already know what those long-term effects will be (nobody ‘knows’ if vaping is 100% safe); that in the long run, those who vape will not be subjecting themselves to the monstrocities presented by traditional tobacco cigarettes. In addition to the ‘they might be safer because I have common sense’ aspect, evidence is ALSO suggesting that e-cigs may potentially help smokers kick the habit; a win-win (unless you work for the tobacco companies or your lobbyists have been funded by them). While the FDA continues to weigh the pros (better tasting, cheaper, less chemicals, increase in economy, may help curb smoking epidemic) with the cons (like adults, children enjoy flavors, they may not be –100%– safe). Until these needed tests have confirmed their place, e-cigs will continue to be scrutinized and smokers will continue to die.
Recent reports have correlated depression with cigarettes, but not in the same sense as traditionally thought. It was once believed that those suffering from depression (and those with anxiety) increase their depression by smoking. Most smokers believe that they are depressed to begin with, and they probably were, though there are a few key elements that have been over looked.
Recently doctors discovered that ingredients other than nicotine are mentally damaging and further addiction. This was never correlated in the past because doctors believed that stressed out and depressed patients started because they were depressed when this study actually proves that inaccurate as well as startling.
Recent reports state the tobacco companies are adding more ingredients in their cigarettes to make them even more addictive. If this source is accurate (and it isn’t hard to believe), then tobacco companies are literally increasing addiction to increase profit; not just providing a seemingly natural plant. The fact is that when a smoker smokes, that person is in taking nearly 7000 chemicals, most which are not known,
Other reasons why depressed individuals may pick up the smokes is because depressed people do not care as much about themselves as those who are prideful and cerebrally speaking, content. The feeling of a cigarette is soothing and can temporarily alleviate a moment of stress, but the withdrawal for nicotine kicks in within minutes, furthering stress again. It’s a vicious cycle.
Depression is something that over 8 million Americans suffer from, many whom are smokers. New electronic cigarette technology could potentially aid this problem, especially when considering that these devices only utilize nicotine and not the additional 7000 chemicals, come of which contain arsenic, cadmium and carbon monoxide.
E-cig technology is promising in a lot of ways- it could innovate the medical industry (patients suffering from ailments like Alzheimer’s are utilizing pure nicotine for memory function). In addition, the smoking epidemic claiming 1 out 5 lives could halt. Death also causes depression and it has been proven that most smokers had parents who were smokers.
There are a lot of factors that contribute to depression. For those who are trying any and everything to diminish if not cure it, quitting smoking may be the answer. Research suggests that cigarettes are getting deadlier by the day, and new pesticides and superbugs are infesting the crops. Scientists have no idea what these GMOs are and how they are going to affect the next generation of people (smokers have children), as these organisms are man-made and have been proven to cause tumors.
