Image
If you're like those of us at VistaVapors, residing in the frozen tundra of the north, you're used to dealing with the woes of the cold. Unfortunately, those woes are present for nearly half the year, but our resilience (and the promise of incredible summers) keeps us here in the great state of Minnesota. Throughout the winter, it's inevitable that there will be times where your vape gets colder than it probably should, but if you manage to take the right steps to take care of it, the longevity and effectiveness of your device will not diminish in spite of the wintery conditions. In today's blog, we'll cover the steps we take to make sure our vapes don't suffer from the cold, and how you can prepare yourself for the inevitable moment when the cold creeps in when you're least prepared!


Keep Your Vape At Room Temp
Understandably, there will be times when you just cannot have your vape on your person or in a secure and warm place, but when possible, the best w…

Summary of Recent Vape Study: What We Can Take Away

Image
As you may have seen in the news, reported first by Reuters and CNBC, researchers from the Queen Mary University of London recently completed a study comparing the effectiveness of nicotine-replacement therapies vs. e-cigarettes in helping smokers to quit. You may have read the article, or seen others trying to capitalize on the traffic for the CNBC story, but we wanted to give you the full scope of the results from the study. So, in today's blog, we'll cover the methodology, results, and conclusion from this study,  and what we can take away from it!

Methods [1]:
According to the report, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, the methodology for this study was fairly simple. The participant group was assembled by randomly selecting attendees of the U.K. National Health Service stop-smoking services and randomly assigned them into one of two groups. Group 1 gave the attendees their choice of any nicotine-replacement therapy products and provided them with those prod…

Find a New ADV for 2019!

Image
You might be a smoker right now, or you might be a current vaper; regardless of your smoking/vaping status, part of the beauty of vaping is the ability to change your vape juice whenever you'd like. Whether you've got an ADV already, or you're still searching for that go-to flavor, there's always another flavor out there ready for you to try.

Finding a reliable flavor is a huge part of quitting cigarettes for good. For those of you that have already made the complete switch, you know exactly what we're talking about. For some, the flavor that helps you quit smoking entirely doesn't end up being the flavor you continue to go back to along your vaping journey. For others, you find a flavor that helps you drop cigarettes and vape it until the end of time. For me personally, there are about 5 flavors I can continue to go back to and vape all day long, and in a way, that provides some security to my vaping journey. What if, for example, a flavor you love no longer …

The Best Method to Break-In Your New Coils

Image
Although arguably the most important part of any vape experience is still the vape juice, one of the most important parts about getting started with your new vape coil is making sure it's broken-in properly. There aren't many worse things than burning out a fresh coil when it comes to vaping. That's not the only thing you need to keep your eye on, though, so in today's blog, we'll try to cover each and every detail necessary for breaking in your newest vape coils. Without further ado, let's begin!

Once you get a new device, you'll first want to break-in the coils. Doing so is very easy, but it can be a bit tedious. Start by dripping a few drops of juice onto the coil that's inside the tank, not so much that it floods everywhere, but enough that the cotton begins to look wet on the inside. After that, drip a few drops into the slots on the outside of the coil as well - continue that process until those holes appear to have fully saturated cotton. From th…

How To Clean Your Vape Tank

Image
For those who've recently quit smoking and started vaping or those who simply seek some advice for properly managing their vape equipment, today's blog is for you! Cleaning your vape tank is exceptionally important, especially before you change out your coil and filling it with vape juice.

While some tanks allow you to keep the juice you've got left in your tank when you change your coil, we recommend trying your best to vape through the rest of that juice before making the switch. That way, you can dismantle the tank and clean it out before screwing in a new coil and your favorite vape juice.

Cleaning your tank is very easy, but it requires a few steps. Some tanks allow you to dismantle the entire thing, while others stay semi-intact in the dismantling process. To begin the cleaning process, take your tank apart completely so all of the pieces are separate from one another. From there, get a paper towel or napkin handy, and run each individual piece under warm water. Piec…

FDA Calls for Comment on Drug Therapy Proposal

We have arrived. The FDA is considering cozying-up even closer to Big Pharma in a proposed effort to mitigate youth tobacco and nicotine use through, you guessed it, more drug therapies. If you've spent more than 30 seconds researching the effects of drug therapies on helping smokers quit cigarettes, you'll see there's little evidence that they work for the majority of quitters, and even more evidence that many of these "therapies" actually have an adverse effect on those that use them, from depression symptoms to nausea, etc. Here we sit, though, nearly all the way through 2018, and the FDA has fallen back into the pit of "drugs will fix our problems", and if we don't express our displeasure with drugging up kids even-more, the FDA will continue their policy agenda of appeasing to pharmaceutical companies, for-profit advocacy groups, and bough-and-sold lawmakers.

Just to be clear, even though we shouldn't have to explain our position any furthe…
