Washington - You can order - READ MORE

 

The WA Flavor ban is not a complete vapor ban. It bans products with other than tobacco flavor. You may order Flavorless with nicotine and any of our 79 Traditional tobacco flavors with nicotine that have the taste and aroma of tobacco.  These are restricted to PURE TRADITIONAL TOBACCO FLAVORS (See new category)

This ban also does not apply to Tribal Shops or resellers

SAFETY TIP: Use caution:  Bans don't work, but when they are bad ones like this one, people can get hurt.  
Do not purchase E-Liquid from the Black Market, off Social Media, etc.  Only Purchase reputable brands that follow FDA regulations.

Here is the good news:  You may order any of our tobacco products that have a characterizing flavor of tobacco.  Our number one product is 7 Leaf Tobacco for 8 years running.   Our Traditional flavors are the true taste of the tobacco and not the taste of the burning of the tobacco.  Creating a rich aroma and pleasing vapor.  Check out the reviews on our great tasting Tobacco Flavors. 

SAFETY TIP: Tell your customers to Use caution:  Bans don't work, but when they are bad ones like this one, they can get people hurt.  Avoid using store bought flavorings.  Those flavors are fully intended to be digested.  While most vapor e-liquid manufacturers buy exclusively from raw flavoring makers who offer specific flavors for the vapor industry. These flavorings are crafted and tested with the vapor industry in mind.   We do not use store-bought flavorings, and, please neither should they.

Allowed purchases

  • Sweetener in e-liquid has no flavor or taste, it is one of the five primary sensory qualities (sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami).  We find nothing in the rule that bans sensations, i.e. allowed pure tobacco flavors can have a bitter sensation.  (Use Tobacco Magic™ Flavor Enhancer for a Smoother Tobacco Vape)
  • Add Cool Hit® as an option.  Cool Hit is the cooling sensation of menthol but without flavor or odor.  Also available in FlavorTudes or as an E-Liquid by itself.  Cold Fusion is 3x the Cool Hit without flavor or odor.

Lung illness primarily linked to cannabis vaping

[Source: Detroit Metro Times]  Whitmer became the first governor to announce a ban on flavored nicotine products amid a mysterious, vaping-related lung illness that has sickened more than 500 people and killed at least 19 people. But the illness appears to be primarily linked to cannabis vaping, not flavored nicotine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday.

(BOLD, RED COLOR and UNDERLINE BY ECBLEND)

(4) "Characterizing flavor" means a distinguishable taste or aroma, or both, other than the taste or aroma of tobacco or marijuana or a taste or aroma derived from terpenes or terpenoids derived directly and solely from marijuana or hemp plants that have been grown and tested as required by state law, imparted by a vapor product. Characterizing flavors include, but are not limited to, tastes or aromas relating to any fruit, chocolate, vanilla, honey, candy, cocoa, dessert, alcoholic beverage, menthol, mint, wintergreen, herb, or spice. A vapor product does not have a characterizing flavor solely because of the use of additives or flavorings or the provision of ingredient information. It is the presence of a distinguishable taste or aroma, or both, that constitutes a characterizing flavor.

(5) “Flavored vapor product” means any vapor product that imparts a characterizing flavor

(12) “Vapor product" means any noncombustible product that may contain nicotine or a marijuana product and that employs a heating element, power source, electronic circuit, or other electronic, chemical, or mechanical means, regardless of shape or size, that can be used to produce vapor or aerosol from a solution or other substance including any electronic cigarette, electronic cigar, electronic cigarillo, electronic pipe, or similar product or device and any vapor cartridge or other container that may contain nicotine or a marijuana product in a solution or other form that is intended to be used with or in an electronic cigarette, electronic cigar, electronic cigarillo, electronic pipe, or similar product or device, including, but not limited to, marijuana-infused extracts or marijuana concentrates for inhalation.
