Why Promoting E-Cigarettes is Great for Business

If you are the owner of a bar or restaurant, you should be doing everything within your power to encourage e-smoking. We know perfectly well that cigarettes are bad for everyone, but e-cigs are anything but. Generally, you can vape all you want in public places, indoors or out, and especially in bars and restaurants because the vapor is never a problem to nonsmokers or anyone who comes into contact.

Cigarettes are entirely justified in having massive restrictions; most nonsmokers don’t care to smell them or inhale the smoke. They are just not good for business. But by promoting electronic cigarettes, you are able to please everyone, and keep all of your patrons in the door. For example, in a restaurant or bar, imagine how much money can be lost to smokers spending a good amount of their time outside, rather than in your doors? Allowing them the option to vape inside lets them stay, and continue to enjoy your services. And it results in a mutually beneficial scenario: the customer gets to stay inside, enjoy their dinner and/ or cocktails while they enjoy their electronic cig, and the business owner sees greater profit, a longer stay from the customer, and a customer who leaves happy, who is then more likely to speak highly of the venue. It only makes sense! Our customers are overwhelmingly pleased with all the benefits that have incurred by using alternative cigarettes, just have a look at some of the EverSmoke testimonials they have written!

E-cigarettes have gained so much ground in the past few years because of their many conveniences and the great alternative they are for people who want to enjoy nicotine without the smoke. Tobacco comes with a great deal of stigma, and more and more it becomes less accepted and tolerated in the public sphere. For business, daily life, and social settings, e-cigs are the way to go!

What You Need to Know About E-Cigarette Bans

It’s pretty obvious that electronic cigarettes are faced with a lot of controversy. Between the proponents and the adversaries, there is a lot of mixed information going on right now. Many people are claiming electronic cigarettes are unhealthy, unsafe, and dangerous, all the while there is plenty of information to say otherwise. Currently, Canada does not permit the sales of e-cigs, however traditional tobacco cigarettes are perfectly legal. Does this make sense to anyone? E-Cigarette use is not illegal there, but sales are.

Even still, many people are fighting for bans and restrictions, and it is kind of hard to decipher the truth when personal interests really get in the way here in the States. In the quaint Bay Area city of San Rafael, many are pushing for restrictions on e-cigs to match the strict ordinances on tobacco cigarettes. This is the same case scenario in many other parts of the country as well.

Such is the case with Dr. Ellen Hahn, from the Kentucky Center for Smoke Free Policy recently went on record during a television interview, unleashing a diatribe filled with holes and inaccurate information about e-cigarettes. She is connected to the Rx powerhouse Pfizer, the notorious maker of numerous cigarette-cessation drugs. The basis of her argument was that smokers should not use vapor alternative cigarettes as a cessation device because of their abundance of carcinogenic compounds as well as the fact that no one is entirely sure what is contained within them. Perhaps she needs to actually investigate what e-cigs are really all about, and perhaps she needs to look into the more legitimate, more responsible brands that exist. Because if she were to do some research into EverSmoke, as well as many of the other well-known brands, she would find that we disclose our ingredients. Even more importantly, we do not promote or consider our products and electronic cigarette starter kits to be “cessation devices.” They are an alternative option, and our cartridges do contain nicotine, with the exemption of our 0mg nicotine cartridges. Without any uncertainty, our e-cigarette products produce no smoke, tobacco or otherwise. Nothing gets burned during the vaping process, and while vapor bears an uncanny resemblance to smoke, it is simply water vapor.

Millions of people are switching from tobacco to electronic, and the vast majority of them are well-informed about the positives. Some claim e-cigs are bad because they are tempting to teens and others who are at risk, however they are much less easily accessible than cigarettes are. Doubters also cite that e-cigarette brands are not looking towards the betterment of their users, claiming they will get hooked on vapor cigs and never quit. This is also untrue, because even though e-smokes are not meant for cessation, users gain a much greater sense of control when using them, and often can wean themselves off at their own comfort level. And in the process, they aren’t immersing themselves in toxic, carcinogenic smoke. So bans or no bans, if smokers are determined to quit using vapor, they are going to. When there’s a will, there’s a way, as the old saying goes!

 

 

5 Reasons to Ditch the Cigs for E-Cigs for Halloween

It’s always a good time to choose vapor over smoke, and hey, Halloween is barely a week away, and it’s as good a time as any! We are still currently running our Breast Cancer Awareness sale, and it’s technically still October, so a percentage of all sales go towards the Susan G. Komen Fund, so make those purchases count towards something bigger! In the meantime, while Halloween is on the brain, here are 5 pretty good reasons why the scariest night of the year should not involve tobacco smoke!

1. Halloween is especially fun for the kids, and it’s never appropriate to smoke cigarettes around them. Exposing them to smoke can be totally avoided, whether you just stop yourself from smoking in their presence, or you do the intelligent thing and use electronic cigarettes. This way, when you’re trick or treating, or handing out candy to the hordes of revelers, you don’t put anyone in uncomfortable situations, and you can have your cake and it too!

2. If you are to imbibe on some forbidden vice, on Halloween let it be candy, and not smoke, if you are to choose between them. Vapor cigarettes are much gentler on the system, no matter what time of year anyway.

3. Halloween parties are fun, but smokers in large social gatherings usually get sent out to pasture. Stay indoors and vape, don’t miss any of the party, and infuriate no one with smoke.

4. Some places in the US already have had snowfall this year, and October is usually pretty chilly in a lot of the country. Getting bundled up to smoke outside is such a drag. Again, e-cigs are perfectly fine indoors, and even if Halloween is just another night of the week for you and don’t even intend on handing out treats, you won’t have to brave cold temps.

5. Did you know that Halloween’s original roots can be traced back to the Pagan and Druid times of the Celtic world? It was technically their “New Year” so in that vain, start your year right, with a purposeful resolution to quit smoking, and use e-cigarettes so you can still have the pleasure, none of the pain, and be free from the smoke!

E-Cigs, Celebs, and SNL!

We love celebs, and we love it even more when they smoke e-cigarettes instead of tobacco cigs for sure! It’s always fun when electronic cigarettes pop up in pop culture, and we get pretty giddy when they do! One of the latest sightings happened recently on an episode of Saturday Night Live featuring a skit with Fred Armisen and none other the modern-day James Bond, aka Daniel Craig! Fred’ character was the one handling the e-cig, as he and Craig canoodled on the couch!

Electronic smokes and celebs are nothing new, and a good deal of their popularity can definitely be attributed to celebrities who have really helped usher in the age of vapor. As more and more stars take to the movement, millions of ordinary folks are doing the same. E-cigs have been shown on Two Broke Girls, The Doctors, Alcatraz, Late Night With David Lettermen, the Today Show, among others. The SNL cameo could be looked at just a little scene, just a little reference, but to appear on a show is a really big deal. It shows that alternative cigarettes are not just a passing trend; they would have diminished from sight several years ago if that were the case. It really proves that this is a mass acceptance, and is proof that more people are embracing them in favor of traditional cigarettes. It shows they have solidified their place in American culture at this time.

Celebrities or not, electronic cigarettes are the smarter way to go. Cigarettes will cost you a whole lot more, both in terms of your health and money. They aren’t the “cooler” alternative just because trendy stars are using them; they are the better alternative because they offer you benefits where cigarettes offer only failure. So, hooray to the folks at SNL for recognizing the impact e-cigarettes are making, both in Hollywood and real life pop culture! If your curiosity has gotten the better of you now, and you can’t handle holding off trying e-smokes any longer, check out our amazingly excellent selection of starter kits!

Consume Less, Use E-Cigarettes

One of most wonderful things about electronic cigarettes is that they are reusable, and are a very environmentally conscious way to enjoy nicotine. They are definitely the less consuming option. Unlike cigarettes, which cause harm to those who use them, those exposed to the second hand smoke, and the environment in numerous ways, EverSmoke’s e-cigs go above and beyond to remain safe for humans and the planet. While our new electronic cigarette disposablesare essentially made to be tossed after use, they are still more responsible of a product. Just one of our disposable units is equivalent to about 2 packs of cigarettes, making them vastly less wasteful. So even if you are a pack a day smoker, you are going to take that down to one e-cig every two days, pretty impressive. Also to consider, they are much less likely to be discarded as irresponsibly as typical cigarettes by users just tossing them on the floor after use as is often the case with expired butts.

Electronic cigs are definitely better for the health, the environment, and in terms of consumption because they are not a continuously tossed product, and therefore a lesser purchased product. Each of our electronic cigarette cartridges is equal to around one pack of cigarettes; that’s a ratio 20 cigarettes to 1 cartridge. Then figure in all the other ways that e-cigs cut down consumption: there is no constant replacing of lighters, and then all the cosmetic things that are needed to stay hygienic, such as fragrances, air refreshers, air filters, gum, teeth whiteners, and even additional cleaning just to keep up with all the mess that cigarettes create. Not to say you won’t use any of those things once you trade the tobacco cigs for e-cigs, but I can highly predict you won’t be using them as often.

People are getting more and more conscious of the products they use in all realms of their lives. If you have a choice, are you more likely to choose the more responsible route? People are more in tune with their health, the environment, and their consumption than ever before, and when choosing a way to smoke, e-cigarettes are just the better way to go.

Study Reveals E-Cig Vapor is Safe Indoors

Even with electronic cigarettes being on the market, and their popularity expanding by the minute, there are still many people and many advocacy groups who warn that there may be dangers we don’t know about. How do we really know they are safe if there hasn’t been government testing? How do we know that they are not as dangerous as cigarettes are? How do we know if the vapor is okay to breathe in, especially in the second hand sense? While it is perfectly normal and rightful for these precautions to arise, testing is being done, and more and more research is being conducted. If e-cigarettes were inherently dangerous, they would not be allowed to be sold! And if you weigh the options, considering how drastically unhealthy tobacco cigarettes are, electronic cigarettes are a world apart. Just in terms of basics, they contain no tobacco, smoke, and they leave behind no tar; the three worst constituents of conventional cigarettes.

For anyone who second guesses the “harmless” vapor that is produced by electronic cigarettes, a study was just released showing that there is no risk in it. Unlike smoke from cigarettes, which is produced by burning tobacco and the other chemicals contained within the cigarette, the tobacco, and the filter, e-cig vapor is entirely different. When they are smoked indoors they present no dangers to those breathing in the same space.

The study was done at Clarkson University, in Potsdam New York, at the University’s Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science department, and it was published in the journal Inhalation Toxicology. It examined the compounds of several byproducts that are found in tobacco smoke, and compared the vapor of several well known electronic cigarette brands to determine whether the same compounds were found in the vapor. As they are completely different products, and how e-cigarettes work is vastly different from traditional cigarettes, it is kind of strange to compare them back to back. Regardless of that however, from what the study determined, the level of toxic chemicals in e-cig vapor when released into the air is so minute, that they have been declared to present no environmental danger for breathing indoors and do not compromise the air quality. While this was not the first study of this kind, it was the largest, looking at the broadest range of toxins. All have revealed similar findings.

This is pretty awesome news for the electronic cigarette community! What this means is that there is confirmation now on something we have been saying all along! While cigarettes are a major problem, especially when smoked indoors, this is not a similarity shared with electronic cigarettes. While there are groups advocating e-cigarette bans, most notably regarding indoor use, it is no longer a relavent argument.

What Flavor Are You?

One thing EverSmoke is really well known and loved for by our customers are our flavors. We have perfected the tricky balance it requires to come up with distinctive yet delicious flavors that carry well in vapor, and our fans have been entirely pleased!

When we started out, we carried a mere 6 cartridge flavors, offering e-cig smokers a nice variety to choose from, but nothing that ventured too far out of the ordinary. Our Classic Tobacco and Cool Menthol flavors were crowd pleasers from the beginning, making ground because they actually taste like tobacco and menthol should. Then to keep things interesting, we had Coffee Creation, Very Vanilla, Cherry Crush, and Peppermint Party, all of which are loved for having authentic flavor that comes off really clean when vaped.

After quite some time, we incorporated four exciting new additions to our roster, expanding  our offerings to our customers as well as making the choices more appealing to future customers. The newest flavors include Golden Tobacco, Royal Tobacco, Pina Colada, and   Peach Passion. Golden Tobacco is a rich, robust tobacco flavor, meant to appeal to people who favor exotic tobacco from the Middle East and Europe. Royal Tobacco is another tobacco variety, however this one is great for people who enjoy the clean, smooth taste and finish of lighter, American blends. Pina Colada and Peach Passion were added to expand on our more festive fruit flavors, and Peach has become an instant classive and favorite among users of EverSmoke in a really short amount of time!

E-cigarette flavors are a tricky, complicated thing. Many brands have become known for actually having bad flavors, and issues with their flavors and cartridges. If you browse through electronic cigarette reviews, you will find numerous e-cig customers talking about how certain brands have really awful flavors, either too sweet or too dry. Some complain of  many cartridge flavors having burnt flavors, and cartridges that just don’t taste right. Some customers go through brand after brand after band looking for the perfect flavor, and often times they land here with us! So tell us, what flavor are you?

The Other Side of EverSmoke: Disposables

Very recently, we launched the newest addition to our dynamic lineup of alternative cigarette products: e-cigarette disposables. They come at a time when smokers are looking for great alternatives more than ever. They serve the purpose of offering a convenient option to beginners who want to see what EverSmoke is all about. However, they also provide current users the ability and freedom of a disposable unit for when the moment calls for it. They are perfect for traveling, and are always great to keep on hand, in your bag, or your just in case.

Sometimes life calls for even less of a hassle, and there are times that even the most convenient reusable e-cigarettes will take a backseat to life, making users wish they had the option of a throwaway. This is where our new disposables come in. They work just like our original line, only they are a prepackaged one-piece design: simply open it up and start vaping! There is no charging required at all, and they come in two of our most popular flavors: Classic Tobacco and Menthol. Lasting about 500 puffs, they are each comparable to about 2 packs of cigarettes. No risk, no commitment, and more freedom than any tobacco cigarette could possibly offer! They can go anywhere and be smoked anywhere!

They are extremely affordable, and for people who are just getting started, it’s like a no-risk way to jump right in without dropping the big bucks. They have been designed with EverSmoke’s signature level of integrity and class, ensuring that they will be every bit as pleasurable as our 2-piece model. The technology is all there, and this design ensures the vapor output and flavor are maximized on every puff. You will see the same orange LED light on the end, and the mouthpiece is the same exclusive silicon design as our reusable electronic cigarettes, preventing leakage and a feel that is as close to a cigarette as you will find in the e-cig world! Just one more option to keep things simple, and to make e-smoking your only method of smoking!

The Latest: E-Cigarettes Are Safe For the Heart

One more win for e-cigarettes! The latest news to come out regarding the smokeless alternatives to tobacco has revealed that studies done by physicians in Greece show that electronic cigarettes do not have any sort of negative effect on the heart. Unlike traditional cigarettes, which are proven to cause heart disease, vascular disease, destroy arteries and  the aorta. This data was a big find, and a very big boost to the ongoing argument regarding their safety.

Ever since e-cigarettes first emerged, there have been debates regarding their safety and whether or not they should be used until serious testing and data were released. While the skeptics remained, millions of users were still willing to try them and use them, under the premise that with cigarettes being so awfully unhealthy and loaded with dangers, how could e-cigarettes possibly be more problematic? For countless individuals, vapor cigs have proven to be life changing, offering smokers a world of conveniences they never imagined possible as smokers. The ability to control their habits, lessen their nicotine on their own accord, and especially the ability to puff only when they need one or two pulls, allows for e-cig users to really get a handle on their nicotine, all the while doing it without the danger of smoke.

With a myriad of brands available, users are often plagued by not knowing how to choose a brand. Sadly, many settle for cheaper, lesser quality store bought brands hoping for a fulfilling experience only to become turned off by the products. One suggestion is to research online before buying, and to read as many e-cig reviews as you can, based on top quality brands. EverSmoke users, across the board have been pleased and overjoyed at the results they have seen using our products. We have extremely strict standards, and do our own quality testing. While we cannot please every e-smoker’s tastes, we do pride ourselves in having exceptional products, and no customer has ever reported a dangerous or adverse health effect.

The latest research is showing what we’ve always known is true: that these are safe products, and now there is proof that they do not negatively affect the heart. While we do not have 100% research and regulations, saying that electronic cigarette products are entirely safe, there are millions of users worldwide, and many doctors even recommend them.
