  • GPriv Review

    The GPriv, 2 battery touch screen SMOK kit is what you've been waiting for.

    I recently purchased the purple SMOK Gpriv 220W kit because purple is my favorite color.  And a girl should get what she wants.  It is purple and black (both the tank and the mod).  It is sleek and sexy.  I was super excited to pick this up.  It even comes with a sleeve if you are worried about dropping it, to protect the screen and the mod.  And actually I already dropped it once, and it still works just like it was brand new.  There are a lot of great things about this kit, but the main reasons why this is the kit for you is below.

    First: The hardware.  Tank - Smok Big Baby Beast & Mod - Gpriv 220W.  Batteries held in with magnetic side panel. It is clean, lightweight, and durable.

    Second: The functions.  Touchscreen with screen lock, time and date, number of puffs, wattage level and effect control, and battery level monitoring.  There is more, I just haven't gotten to play with it yet :)

    Third: The hit.  Smooth and controlled.  Not harsh.  It is clean and flavorful.

    Basically, it is everything you want when vaping your favorite flavors.  I currently have Reds Iced Apple E Juice by 7 Daze in my tank and it totally hits the spot.  I didn't want to even buy a new mod, because I was content with my Fuchai 200W, but it was time to be part of 2017 .  I am really happy with the SMOK GPriv 220W kit and I think you would be too.  Find it on our website or in the shop.  You won't be sorry.  It even comes in lots of different color options, so you might be able to find your favorite color just like I did.  I totally recommend this kit 10 out of 10.

     

  • California April 1st 2017 Tobacco Tax

    We Will Keep Updating the information with new posts once the state gives more clarification.

     

    Message from Cosmic Fog Vapors

    To our valued California customers,

    As you hopefully are already aware, starting April 1st all liquid nicotine (E-Liquid) products being sold into the state of California will fall under California tobacco product’s tax. There are many important things you must know as a business owner to make sure that you are ready and compliant with this new tax code as to not find yourself being liable for selling untaxed tobacco products. Cosmic Fog, through our position on the board of the California Smoke Free Organization has been negotiating with the Board of Equalization since the passage of prop 56 to make these new laws as least burdensome as possible for you.

    RETAILERS: Starting April 1st there are three main guidelines you must follow on all of the E-Liquid products you carry.

    You must obtain a tobacco products retailer license from the state of California.

    You may only buy nicotine containing E-liquid products from licensed California tobacco products distributors, wholesalers or manufacturers. You must receive and file a copy of every vendors license and keep on file while that product is on your shelf and maintain those records for a period of four years.

    Every product you purchase from a licensed channel must come with an invoice that includes the distributor/wholesaler/manufacturer’s license number with a separate line item showing the exact rate and total amount of the tax being charged on your order. You must pay this tax on every order and maintain these as records for a period of 4 years.

    What is most important to remember here is that all tax enforcement will be done at a retail level. Starting April 1st BOE enforcement agents will be entering your shop and asking you to show all of the documentation required for all of the products on your shelf. If you do not have this documentation, you as a retail license holder will be held liable.

    In an effort to prevent all confusion and offer the maximum amount of security to our valued customers, Cosmic Fog with be instituting a new policy starting April 1st. After April 1st, every bottle we sell into the state of California whether it be to a retail shop or to a wholesaler buying tax paid inventory to resell into CA, each and every bottle will be labeled with a CA TAX PAID Cosmic Fog sticker complete with our license number. This gives you an extra layer of protection when buying inventory from any sources that the merchandise is compliant. After April 1st you should never receive a bottle of Cosmic Fog, Liquid State or Next Day Vapor Products that does not have this tax label. Your existing unlabeled stock will still be okay to sell as long as you can show invoices and payment records that it was purchased before April 1st. At this time BOE has no plans to collect a retroactive floor tax.

    WHAT IS THE TAX RATE?
    This is the area that is going to most effect your day to day business operations. The amount of the tax is a percentage off of the price of the FIRST point of sale into California. California’s OTP tax is written in a way to directly benefit the companies that manufacture in the state of California. For these companies (such as us) they are allowed to carry BOTH a manufacturers as well as a distributors license. The board of equalization allows manufacturers to sell from their manufacturing side to their distribution side at the cost of manufacturing, making this the first point of sale in California.

    For example, if you order 1 bottle from us at a price of $10, Cosmic Fog sells that bottle from Cosmic Manufacturing to Cosmic Distriubtion at manufacturing cost plus any other costs the BOE requires be factored in. So if we assess the cost of manufacture at $1.00 per a unit, each bottle sold into California will carry a 27.3 cent tax. Making your total cost for the one bottle $10.27. At this time we are awaiting an acceptable cost of manufacturing to base these figures off of from our Tax attorneys and expect the tax on a 30 mL unit to fall between $0.30-$0.40 and the tax for a 60 mL unit to fall between $.55-0.65.

    EXAMPLE 2, NON CA MANUFACTURERS/OUT OF STATE DISTRIBUTORS

    Companies located outside of California CAN obtain a CA tobacco products distributor license to legally sell into the state of California. However, what is most important to remember is that the CA tax is based off the first point of sale into CA. If an outside distributor or company is selling untaxed product into the state of CA then the first point of sale will be the price charged to you. Meaning on that same sale of 1 bottle for $10 the tax will be based off of that $10 amount bringing the taxable amount to $2.73 and your total price to $12.73.

    Also please note that the tax rate of 27.3% is expected to change in July to an estimated 68% raising our the taxes to be collected on every unit sold into CA.
    Please contact us if you have any questions about bringing your business to compliance or if we can offer any support going forward. As always we will take every step to protect your business and be your go to source on all matter related to regulatory, tax and anything facing the future of our industry.

  • Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice Review

    Air Factory ?Mystery? E-Juice

    What does this taste like?

    What is this juice suppose to be?

    I dont know what this is but I like it!

    All quotes from customers here in our store in Costa Mesa. All ideas that pop into your head after a Vape of Air Factory's ?Mystery? E-Juice

    ?Mystery? E-juice is a new flavor from Air Factory that tries a brand new approach to the flavor profile for juice.  No definitive flavor profile is available from the company leaving the experience unhindered by subliminal messaging on the packing.  A Unique experience indeed!

    ?Mystery? is packaged in a standard non descriptive, cartoonishly designed box that explains very little of the juice.  The juice is contained in an over sized 100ML chubby gorilla bottle.  The juice is available in 0,3, and 6 MG nic.

    BUT HOW DOES IT VAPE

    That answer is not so simple, which is definitely apart of the apeal of the juice.  The juice has been brewed to vape clean and smooth.  ?Mystery? is great on your coils and is absolutely capable of fulfilling an all day vape flavor.  The taste is however, an absolute mystery.  Different people have given vastly different answers to what they believe the flavor profile is.  Without a written que to assist in deciphering the flavor profile Air factory has achieved somthing special indeed.  The flavor is absolutely fruity but not specific.  The flavor is sweet like a candy but not overly artificial.  A hint of sour is present but again, not specific.

    My initial thoughts were a grape based flavor mixed with taffy.  But with a sample size of over 100 people asked,  I was alone in my opinion.  Apple, watermelon, strawberry, lemon, and even pineapple were all the flavor profiles given to me.  The Image of the White Mystery Laffy Taffy definitely flashes in your mind as you vape this juice but what exactly does a mystery flavor air head taste like?

    While being unable to give a specific flavor profile on ?Mystery? one thing is for sure.  The juice is a winner.  The flavor is unique yet familiar.  Smooth enough to keep your tastebuds active and reach that coveted all day vape status.  Being unable to identify the true flavor profile of the juice has deterred very few from enjoying this very unique Juice

    Air Factory have produced a true winner with ?Mystery?  We here at Vaping Industries just wish we knew what the flavor truly was!

  • Scott Gottlieb Pro Tobacco Nominee For FDA Commissioner

     

    Scott Gottlieb New FDA Director Nominee

    President Donald Trump’s nomination of Scott Gottlieb to be the next commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration is a hopeful sign that the FDA’s illogical tobacco product regulations may soon end.

    The rules as they stand lump all nicotine-containing products as one in the same, regardless of what risks they pose, so that electronic cigarettes -- which are orders of magnitude safer than tobacco cigarettes -- cannot remain on the market unless their makers submit expensive and burdensome applications to the FDA. Combustible cigarettes, meanwhile, are free to keep killing more than 400,000 Americans a year, no questions asked.

    As a result, a large percent of electronic cigarettes stand to be removed from the market, leaving real cigarettes from the need to compete against safer products.

    Gottlieb seems to realize that this doesn’t make sense. He has written of the “public health virtue” of helping move the market away from combustible cigarettes and toward safer products that deliver nicotine but without the health risks associated with smoking.

    The federal government’s current approach is described in last year’s Surgeon General’s report on electronic cigarettes, which characterizes vaping as a “form of tobacco use” and notes that electronic cigarettes are “the most commonly used form of tobacco among youth in the United States.” The report repeatedly emphasizes that all forms of tobacco use, including e-cigarettes, are dangerous.

    There is a major problem here. Electronic cigarettes don’t contain tobacco, so vaping is not a form of tobacco use. Smokers who are concerned about their health but unable to quit nicotine, use e-cigarettes in order to continue inhaling nicotine without the risks inherent in analog cigarettes.

    The Surgeon General’s report explains that “e-cigarettes are considered tobacco products because most of them contain nicotine, which comes from tobacco.”

    MOST and not ALL is deliberate wording.

    Let’s be clear. If vaping is a form of tobacco use, then so is nicotine replacement therapy. And if “any form of tobacco use” is dangerous, then people who use nicotine gum and nicotine patches are also at risk. Obviously, it would be misleading to tell the public that the nicotine patch is a form of tobacco use. But the nicotine in a nicotine patch is derived from the same tobacco as is the nicotine in e-cigarettes.

    Another problem with the report is its unwillingness to acknowledge any difference in risk among various products. How can a product that kills more than 400,000 Americans a year be compared with vaping products and nicotine patches?

    The public relies on government health agencies to accurately communicate health risks. Vapors who read headlines suggesting that tobacco cigarettes and e-cigarettes are equal will be encouraged to return to smoking.

    The report also criticizes the tobacco industry for historically misleading the public about the relative risks of different types of tobacco products ("light" vs. regular cigarettes), but then engages in its own form of deception by equating tobacco cigarettes, whose risks are well-known, with tobacco-free products, whose risks are not. If there is any loss in public understanding, it’s not in underestimating the risks of vaping, but in overestimating them, a recent survey shows.

    The pitfall in exaggerating risks to scare children is that it doesn’t work. The risks associated with a behavior are part of what makes adolescents like it. Of course, adults want to protect kids from risks. But the challenge is not to stop youth from ever taking them; it’s to create an environment in which risks are minimized. The priority should be to keep kids off of real cigarettes.

    What’s more, efforts to scare kids away from vaping discourage many adults from quitting smoking.

    There is a way to regulate electronic cigarettes more sensibly: Congress should overturn the FDA e-cigarette regulations and substitute a framework that creates a separate category for e-cigarettes, with separate quality-control and safety standards; allow e-cigarette makers to innovate; and realistically communicates to the public the potential dangers of vaping.

    When talking to people about risks to their health, honesty is always the best policy.

  • Vaping Industries Will Be At MUSINK With Cosmic Fog Vapors

    We are excited to announce
    Vaping Industries Costa Mesa's Premier One Stop Vape Shop will be at
    Travis Barker Presents the Tenth Annual MUSINK with Cosmic Fog Vapors!

    What will be doing at the event?

    We will be selling AIO KITS for $25.00 and you will get a bottle of Cosmic Fog Vapors eJuice with each purchase!

    What is MUSINK?

    Musink is a 3-day tattoo convention, car show and live music concert held annually in Orange County. Boasting over 300 world renowned tattooers, 100's of vendors, three full days of bands, and Low & Slow Car Show presented by Famous Stars and Straps, Musink is the US' premiere tattoo and music lifestyle event.

    Who is Travis Barker?

    The history of punk rock can be divided into two parts: punk before Travis Barker and punk after Travis Barker. The California born-and-bred drummer has been a stalwart in the game for at least two decades, and is known for, among other things, his technical chops (usually delivered with military precision), and his sadomasochistic approach to beating the shit out of a drum kit. He’s also the backbone, workhorse, heart, soul, and, frankly, the best musician in the venerable pop-punk trio Blink-182 (their latest album, California, claimed Billboard’s top spot in July, putting an end to Drake’s nine-week run). So it should be no surprise that Barker happens to be one of the industry’s most sought after drummers. (I mean, just look at his resume: The Aquabats, Transplants, Box Car Racer, +44, Yelawolf, Antemasque, not to mention collaborations with Rihanna, Lil Wayne, and Afrojack.)

  • Fake News Strikes Vaping

    Abe Lincoln Fake News Quote

    Sensationalism is a way of life for internet journalists and it has become a cesspool of fake news.

    A recent article published by the OC Register made a 100% accurate claim that is completely ridiculous.  The article's claim is simple,  vape products are sold in more locations than fresh produce.  However instead of wording it as such they used the words easier to obtain than nutritious food.  A textbook case of fake news.

    This claim is completely accurate according to a survey of pharmacies, supermarkets, convenience stores and smoke shops.  We here at Vaping Industries would be hard pressed to find someone who truly believes that finding fresh produce in a smoke shop or convenience store is a simple task.  I hear those Circle K Streaks are where its at, least according to the OC Register.  About as easy as it would be to find a fresh baked pizza in a sushi restaurant.

    Sensationalism journalism is a plague to anyone looking for no nonsense information from trustworthy sources.  Making a claim that can be skewed as a truth when only information you are trying to justify is used and common sense is thrown out the window destroys credibility instantaneously.  Claiming that 100% of people agree with you when you only ask people who agree with you is downright deceptive. The term fake news has been become synonymous with this practice.

    The article from the OC Register did just that.

    Vaping always seems to be under attack from sinister forces attempting to demonize everything related to it.  The OC Register has proven that they will even go as far as out right lie to push their agenda.  Yes, their are more locations in the area that sell Vaping products than fresh produce.  No they are not easier to obtain.  Individual accountability on store owners enforcing ID policies is stronger than ever before.

    Anyone in the vape game should be able to see how deceptive the OC Register is attempting to be.  Don't drink the Kool Aid!  The demonization of vaping by more and more media outlets is becoming common place.

    Vaping started as a grassroots word of mouth hobby that has attracted more and more people through hype alone.  As the trend to put a negative light on vaping continues,  the onus is on us as a community to be just as vocal as the opposition to keep our image clean and to sift through the garbage of online journalism and keep the record straight from fake news.

  • Sour House Green Apple Review by JRUE

    Sour House Green Apple by The NeighborhoodFounded by e-liquid mixing veterans of 3 years Brandon and Kevin in late 2015, Southern California-based The Neighborhood E-liquid was inspired by the principles instilled in them by their urban upbringing.

    Those principles were brought to life in their e-liquids with flavors that are bold, unique, and push boundaries.  Their brand and flavors are designed to make a statement with that uniqueness, encouraging individuality and freedom.

    The newest concoction from The Neighborhood is the amazingly fresh Sour House Line.  Combining the always popular natural fruit flavors with a sour candy twist, Sour House is almost universally well received by vapors everywhere.

    Upon First glance of the box, The Neighborhood rocks a stylish design that shows off the attention to detail always present in their design.  A ready to drip 60ML gorilla bottle is the delivery system and we couldn't be happier.  The ease of use for any vapor looking for a quick tank fill will love the change from the older twist drip bottles.

    BUT HOW DOES IT VAPE

    JRUE was extremely excited to try the much hyped Sour House.  Green apple is the flavor of choice for much of the Vaping Industries crew and boy did it deliver.  The green apple tasted natural and clean.  Unique is a word that can be thrown around incredibly nonchalant in the world of E-Juice, however The Neighborhood has cooked up a flavor that is nothing short of that.  natural granny smith apple flavor has been an elusive pallette to lock down in an E-Juice for years.  Always tasting unnaturally sweet or being to light to really nail down the essence of the flavor.  The Neighborhood have finally found that perfect balance of natural flavor and satisfying sweet.

    Fulfilling the need for both a satisfying flavor and a striking enough flavor to hit that "all day vape" level.  Sour House Green Apple has hit money.  If you have been looking for a green apple flavor that tastes both natural and maintains the flavor through the entire bottle, welcome to your next favorite juice.

    Sour House also offers a Strawberry and Watermelon Flavor

  • New Jersey Attempts to Ban All Non Traditional Vape Flavors

    Pure ConfusionLawmakers are attempting to ban all flavored vaping products in New Jersey, claiming they lure children to smoking and harm public health. A move that makes absolutely no sense to anyone with common sense.

    The state Assembly’s health committee approved the legislation last week, but it will still need to pass through both houses of the state legislature before becoming law. The law would only allow for tobacco, menthol and clove flavors to be sold for vaping products. Democratic Assemblyman Herb Conaway, a co-sponsor on the bill, claims vaping companies deliberately sell flavors that appeal to kids in order to hook them on nicotine early. Critics are ripping into Conaway for what they argue is an attempt to crush the vaping industry in the state, reports NJ.com.

    The legal purchasing age for e-cigarettes and tobacco products in New Jersey is 19, but officials fear kids will get their hands on the products anyway. They also fear e-cigarettes are a gateway to smoking, despite research to the contrary.

    “There is no evidence that the availability of some flavors prompt children to try e-cigarettes,” Dr. Edward Anselm, a senior fellow of the R Street Institute, told The Daily Caller News Foundation. “Those who are curious about the nicotine will try it. E-cigarettes are certainly safer than combusted cigarettes.”

    Critics of the proposed ban note the flavors are very popular with adults and offer smokers a viable way to reduce health risks to themselves and those around them. Major health groups in England, like the Royal College of Physicians, agree that using e-cigarettes eliminates most of the harms attributed to smoking. They also recommend vaping to patients trying to quit traditional tobacco products.

    Vaping eliminates up to 95 percent of the risk associated with cigarettes because the majority of cancer-causing chemicals are inhaled through smoke.

    “Many adults seem to like kids flavor,” Anselm told TheDCNF. “Studies of regular vapers show that they change flavor several times a day because vaping requires more puffs than smoking. Vaping delivers less nicotine and thus requires more puffs.”

    Researchers from University College London, Roswell Park Cancer Institute in New York and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) all participated in a landmark study refuting assertions from the surgeon general and CDC claiming vaping is harmful to health and a potential gateway to smoking addiction.

    The study, published in February in the Annals of Internal Medicine, shows a large reduction in the levels of toxic chemicals and carcinogens linked to smoking-related illnesses in those who switched to vaping devices for at least six months.

    The CDC released a report Dec. 8 condemning vaping as an unhealthy practice and warned vaping poses a significant risk to youth. Localities across the U.S. are implementing regulations treating vaping the same way as traditional cigarettes, with some measures slapping the industry with taxes as high as 40 percent.

    Despite the recent rhetoric against vaping, medical professionals are still advising smokers to give the devices a try. A survey published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health last year found 57.8 percent of practicing physicians recommend e-cigarettes to smokers trying to quit.

    Lawmakers are attempting fulfill an agenda that contradicts all known scientific data in an attempt to...?

    The only gains that will be made by this legislation will put people out of jobs and put more money into the coffers of big tobacco. Who is really making the decisions here?
