Facts

Why organic?

Because we’re California folk, we believe everything is better when it’s organic! We use only third party certified organic flavorings and organic and pharmaceutical grade vegetable glycerin and our facility is a certified organic handling facility. Our e-liquids do not contain any artificial flavorings, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners or any other additives. They are also vegan, GMO-free and contain no sugar or gluten.

While many of our customers come to us for the benefits of going organic, they often don't realize until they taste our e-liquids that organic also just tastes better. If you're used to fake tasting flavors with a chemical aftertaste, you are in for a treat. Our flavors taste just like nature intended!

Mouth to lung (M2L) vs direct-to-lung (DL) vaping

MOUTH TO LUNG VAPING - Smokers will be particularly used to mouth to lung vaping, as it’s a similar process to smoking cigarettes. With mouth to lung (M2L) vaping, you inhale the vapor into your mouth first, collect it there, then breathe it fully into your lungs. Now that vaping has become more sophisticated and e-cigs more accessible, people enjoy a mouth to lung vape because of the benefits it offers rather than from necessity.

DIRECT TO LUNG VAPING - Unlike a mouth to lung vape, direct to lung (DL) vaping is more like simply breathing air normally – you suck the vapor straight into your lungs without letting it linger in your mouth. For this reason, direct to lung vaping can be more intense and satisfying than M2L vaping. Most people don’t vape like this when they start out, but it has become popular in recent years due to the rise in hobby vaping and cloud chasing. That is, assuming that your e-cig hardware is compatible with DL vaping – our starter kits are designed to be used specifically for M2L to simulate smoking. If you try direct to lung vaping, you’ll find that you need to go with a low nicotine or nicotine-free (i.e. 3mg or even 0mg) e-liquid. This is because the nicotine will hit you in a more direct way, and could make you cough or feel unpleasant. You’ll also want to use an e-liquid with a high 100% VG like our E-liquid, which means less of a lung hit but a lot more cloud. Our Starter Kits with air flow control are also great for direct to lung vaping, as you can adjust air flow to satisfy your needs.

M2L VAPING VS DL VAPING - There are a few factors that come into play for both mouth to lung and direct to lung vaping, which may help you decide which is right for you.

M2L - Mouth to lung vaping gives a better throat hit than DL vaping does, which of course simulates the sensation that smokers are used to.

M2L - You’ll also find that mouth to lung vaping makes your e-liquid last longer than it would if you were DL vaping. Because of this, and because the action of a mouth to lung vape is similar to cigarette smoking, this is often a good way to vape for most everyday vapers, and it’s the best method to start with if you’re making a move from tobacco cigarettes.

DL - Direct to lung vaping is great if you want to produce great vapor clouds using sub ohm kits, which is why it’s often the preferred method for cloud chasers.

Our ingredients

As users of our own products, we are very particular about what goes into our e-liquid. We believe artificial flavors, artificial colors, artificial sweeteners and other nasty chemicals don't belong in our food, and certainly don't belong in our e-liquid! We disclose every ingredient on each product page so you know exactly what you are vaping.

Our ingredients are simple:

    • pharmaceutical grade Kosher nicotine
    • organic pharmaceutical grade vegetable glycerin
    • pure, distilled water
    • certified organic flavors

Some of our organic flavors come in an organic ethyl alcohol base. If you would prefer an alcohol free e-liquid, please order from our Alcohol-free line. Our nicotine is 100% USA made from handpicked tobacco leaves grown in North Carolina.

Our e-liquids have tested free of diethylene glycol (DEG) as well as the heavy metals mercury, lead, chromium and cadmium and we adhere to AEMSA’s strict protocols with regular laboratory testing for diacetyl and pentanedione. To top it all off, we package in glass, not plastic, to prevent chemicals such as BPA leaching into your e-liquid.

While all of these things cost us a bit extra, we simply do not skimp when it comes to quality. We promise, you will taste the difference!

Viscosity - March 2017

Over the last 3 months we have been removing water from certain flavors which makes the viscosity of the e-liquid thicker but in-line with other e-liquid manufacturers.

Why?

Because the new generation hardware works better with e-liquid that is the natural viscosity of VG.

The flavor is stronger and for those that care, the cloud is denser as well.

RULES OF THUMB FOR THE NEW HIGHER VISCOSITY E-LIQUID

VG is temperature sensitive so vape at room temperature, if it is colder, there can be less flavor and you can get sputter e-liquid in your mouth.

Keep your battery charged. We observe that the Modern-era coils and tanks work best when the batteries are 50+% charged. More flavor, more cloud, less sputter-to-mouth.

Older small-pen style hardware doesn't have the power or coil design that vapes the higher viscosity e-liquid as well, consider upgrading

Quality Control

Our e-liquids are manufactured in the USA in a dedicated e-liquid laboratory at our commercially zoned facility. We employ a chemist full time in our laboratory to oversee all aspects of product creation, testing and quality control.

We are proud members of AEMSA, the American E-liquid Manufacturing Standards Association, and adhere to their high standards for product quality, safety protocols, regular laboratory testing and good product stewardship. We are completely dedicated to providing the highest quality e-liquids that meet the most rigorous industry standards and are currently undergoing the process of formal certification by AEMSA.

Our facility has been physically inspected by both OSHA and our local Environmental Health Department and our protocols, safe handling procedures, mixing logs, proper use of safety equipment, proper labeling and disposal of hazardous materials were all reviewed during these on-site inspections.

In addition, during our certification as an organic handling facility, our batch traceability protocols were verified. Batch traceability enables us to trace every batch of every individual ingredient we use through our entire production line. That information is then tied to every bottle of e-liquid we produce using the batch number.

Our VG Base

Yes! Our VG based e-liquid is 100% propylene glycol free. Many e-liquids are advertised as being vegetable glycerin based, yet they still contain propylene glycol. This is because the majority of flavorings used in most e-liquids come in a propylene glycol base, so you're still inhaling the propylene glycol added with the flavorings. Our flavorings do not contain PG, giving you a true, 100% propylene glycol free e-liquid.

We custom thin our VG based e-liquids with pure, distilled water in order to mimic the thinner viscosity of PG. This prevents the problems many users experience with VG bases due to the e-liquid being too thick to wick correctly in most electronic cigarettes. Our VG e-liquids work just fine in almost any electronic cigarette.

Allergies

We get quite a few customers who come to Kai's Virgin Vapor because they are experiencing allergic reactions when vaping.  The most common culprit is propylene glycol (PG), a commonly used base in e-liquids.  PG can cause allergic symptoms ranging from a scratchy throat to sinus problems, headaches, and even feelings of nausea.  In extreme cases, PG can even cause numbness in the face and tongue as well as swelling and redness in these areas.  Be certain to first assess if your symptoms are being caused by nicotine overdose.  Symptoms of nicotine overdose can include nausea, headache, rapid heartbeat and a general feeling of being unwell.  Nicotine overdose can be a very serious medical emergency, so be alert for signs and symptoms that may be coming from nicotine poisoning rather than a reaction to PG.

If your symptoms are coming from a PG sensitivity however, you can easily avoid exposure by choosing only 100% vegetable glycerin (VG) based e-liquids.  At Kai's Virgin Vapor, we offer all of our organic e-liquid flavors in 100% VG, so you can easily chose this option rather than a VG/PG mix.  Many other manufacturers also offer VG-based e-liquids, but be certain they are truly PG-free.  The majority of flavorings come in a base of PG, so even if the e-liquid is VG based, it may still contain PG added with the flavorings.  Ask your e-liquid provider to be certain.

Allergic symptoms can also be caused by the flavorings themselves or other added chemicals.  While flavorings used in e-liquids are approved for human consumption, they have not yet been specifically tested for safety when vaporized and inhaled.  Regular e-liquids may contain a wide variety of chemicals which can cause irritation or allergic symptoms when vaped.  Artificial colorings, artificial flavorings, artificial sweeteners and other additives are all often present in regular e-liquids.  In fact, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, "the flavorings industry has estimated that over a thousand flavoring ingredients have the potential to be respiratory hazards due to possible volatility and irritant properties (alpha, beta-unsaturated aldehydes and ketones, aliphatic aldehydes, aliphatic carboxylic acids, aliphatic amines, and aliphatic aromatic thiols and sulfides)."

At Kai's Virgin Vapor, we use only USDA certified organic flavorings.  Our flavors do not contain any nuts, gluten, sugar or other added sweeteners.  They are also vegan.  Because our flavors are steam extracted and/or extracted in organic ethyl alcohol, there is no chemical residue left behind from the extraction process.  These methods produce a superior organic flavor that can, because of its purity, significantly reduce potential irritation and allergy.

Two e-liquid lines

Our standard line is created using USA extracted nicotine and organic flavors in a base of organic ethyl alcohol. The Alcohol-free line uses the same USA-extracted nicotine found in our standard line but has a different line of flavorings that do not contain any alcohol. 

Please note that some organic flavors can interact with the plastic of some electronic cigarette tanks causing it to melt or crack. This is due to the real fruit acids found in organic flavors. Please use caution when using organic flavors in tanks.

International Shipping

All international orders are shipped via FedEx or via USPS International. FedEx provides the most secure shipments available, with full tracking and customer service options. FedEx shipping requires a street address instead of a PO Box address for delivery. We actively work with FedEx to update our shipping forms and codes to enable safe and final shipment to countries outside the U.S.

However, due to currently fluctuating international laws and regulations, as they pertain to the e-cigarette industry and nicotine products, we cannot guarantee shipment to any country outside the U.S. that does not have set laws, clearly defined, for import. If you are aware of restrictions for the import of e-cigarettes or e-cigarette liquid into your country, you are assuming the risk of this order being stopped at customs in your country. Virgin Vapor cannot be responsible for packages held, tampered with, or refused at customs. There are no refunds or replacements for orders lost after leaving the United States or confiscated by the customs department in your country. We do not calculate, charge or assume charges for VAT, duty or import taxes for international shipments.

We do not ship to countries that have banned the sale and import of all e-cigarette hardware, e-cigarette accessories and e-cigarette liquid. Please check your local country regulations prior to ordering.
