Vape Fests

Earlier this year, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee sent a correspondent to a National Vape Expo in the U.S.  For those of us with a sense of humour – and with such a new and often ridiculed habit, you should be – it was a pretty amusing takedown of vape culture.  But like any good Daily Show alum, Bee didn’t approach the subject matter just to ridicule vapers.  Instead, the field piece spotlighted how vape culture was under threat from Big Tobacco and the FDA.  Due to new, rigourous drug laws, smaller vape companies were about to be under heavy scrutiny just to operate.  While Big Tobacco (and their inferior products such as IQos) could easily afford to manuever the FDA, the vape industry is still somewhat fledgling, a David to tobacco’s Goliath.  Their lobbies were out to crush Little...

Vaping vs IQos

  Since vaping has come on the scene, numerous different models and technologies have been released.  Mods, vape pens and just ordinary e-cigarettes have flooded the market.  But like any new technology that grows popular, there’s always competition.  VHS versus Beta.  HD-DVD versus Blu-ray.  Nintendo versus Sega.  All of these have their pros and cons.  Some, technology buffs have argued, even unfairly lost the commerce war due to a poor marketing campaign.  Vintage film geeks and tech nerds even claim that Beta was the superior product, offering better picture quality.  VHS just played the market more shrewdly.  One of vaping’s main competors in the market are IQos, which consist of a charger, holder and requires e-cigarette refills.  If one were to compare said competition to previous products, vaping is to IQos what DVDs are to Laserdisc.  You don’t have to...

What is in E-Liquid

  A brief overview of the tobacco industry in the 20th century is almost enough to turn off even the most avid cigarette-smoker.  It’s a tale of greed, treachery and public deception on levels rarely seen outside of the dirtiest of politics.  Take, for instance, the events dramatized in Michael Mann’s excellent 1999 thriller The Insider, which details the struggle for 60 Minutes to get Brown and Williamson’s whistleblower Jeffrey Wigand’s shocking story to air.  The film features the infamous moment in which the seven heads of big tobacco flat out lying to a congressional committee, each affirming they believe nicotine in not addictive.  In actuality, Brown and Williamson had long been spiking their product to further hook users, turning the cigarette into what Wigand called “a nicotinne-delivery business.” Vaping came along at a very crucial and interesting time in...

Harmful Effects of Vaping

When it comes to vaping safety and the risks involved, most scientists have agreed that the jury is still out.  That’s not to say, however, that there isn’t some danger involved.  For while a large majority of the scientific and technological communities have it’s a safer habit than smoking cigarettes, it still poses a lot of the same threats, just on a smaller scale.  Here’s a need-to-know list of such risks that come with vaping. LIKE CIGARETTES, IT’S BEST NOT TO START YOUNG Vaping use has been on the rise in youth in the past decedes, with nearly one in six high school student using e-cigarettes.  Like smoking anything at an early age will always increase health risks in developing bodies (and kids will always be kids), vaping is a slightly better option.  Though statistic have said that youths who...

All you need to know about CBD vaping

Astronomer and Author Carl Sagan believed in hemp.  He considered the illegality of cannabis to be an outrage.  “An impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world,” he once said.  When it comes to arguments for the legalization of a narcotic, it’s a little difficult to argue with one of the most innovative and prolific minds of the 20th century. And slowly, the world is catching up with Sagan.  Not long ago, Canada legalized the sale and use of recreational marijuana.  The move created a near instant shortage of weed country-wide, and they’re still having trouble keeping it on the shelves.  In the U.S., even conservative states like Utah have at least started to recognize the benefits of medical marijuana (at...

Top Vaping Mods of 2018

  As the year winds itself down, every industry sets about compiling their top ten lists.  Be it film, fashion, design or something more abstract, we are beholden to list things.  The internet has only furthered this slave-like worship to the list, with easy-to-read listicles dominating tabs on browsers.  They come in especially handy when one is bored at work.             The vaping industry is no different.  And here at Vapelux, we see it as our duty to provide readers with only the finest (not to mention safest) products available in the technology.  While all the mods selected are of the highest quality, several features factored into their placement.  The most significant of which is their wattage.  So take heed: if you’re happy with a simple vape pen or e-cigarette, it’s unlikely you’ll need a mod at all, let alone...

Celebrities of Vape (Female edition)

The question of whether or not vaping is a male-dominated habit or not still looms on the community.  And, like any recent trend, pop culture tendsto help sway public opinion on the matter. However, vaping doesn’t appear to be beholden to a single gender. Before smoking onscreen in film was frowned upon by studios, it was used as a statement about the character; it said something about them – not just because they smoked, but how they smoked.  The gruff, grizzled private investigator with a butt dangling between his lips, the suave, tuxedo-clad 40s gent with a thin, lengthy stick forever clenched between his index and middle finger, the bombshell blonde daintily handling a cigarette holder – all indicative of a specific type. Vaping – be it with a mod, e-cigarette or tank – seems gender-less.  Celebrity use only further... Read more

Celebrities of Vape (Male edition)

Let’s be honest – vaping culture has its share of detractors.  Often, it’s the butt of jokes, with users having adjectives attached to them ranging from “douche-y” to “bro”.  We’re an easy target.  It appeared to be a fad that wouldn’t stick.  It can be pricey, cater to the elite, but vaping conventions and specialty stores are also often packed with heavily bearded fellows who seem to think it’s impressive to blow out an endless line of smoke from their mouth and nostrils.  Hint: it’s not, and it defeats the purpose of relaxation when turned into some sort of competition.  Most vapers just enjoy the benefits: not staining your teeth or walls as cigarettes do with tar, long-lasting bottles of liquid with smaller doses of nicotine, the lack of the pungent odor that hangs off a smoker’s clothing and furniture. ...

How To Not Get Your Face Blown Off: Vaping Safety and You

On May 5, Tallmadge D’Elia was just another guy relaxing in his home in St. Petersberg, Florida.  He held a small, cyllindrical vape pen and pressed the tip between his lips, holding down on the button and letting the smoke flow through his mouth, filling his lungs, expelling clouds through his nose and mouth.  A moment later, he was dead. It’s likely he never felt the burns that covered 80 per cent of his body, as the coroner’s report indicated his cause of death was a “projectile wound to the head”.  What remained of the combusted vape pen was later recovered as though it was a killer’s taunting signature mocking investigators: the logo for Smok-E Mountain Mech Works, a company based in the Phillipines.  Mr. D’Elia’s death was the first reported death-by-vaping in the United States. Stories similar to D’Elia’s... Read more
