Green Smoke Discount Coupon


The Green Smoke electronic cigarette is quickly becoming a favorite among “vaping” enthusiasts and for good reason:  It has distinct design differences that give the user the most realistic and satisfying smoking experience… and without the hassles typically associated with other ecigarette models.

Most companies are selling electronic cigarettes in a 3-piece design:

1. Battery

2. Atomizer

3. Nicotine cartridge

The Green Smoke design consists of only 2 pieces:

1. Battery

2. Atomizer & cartridge combined

Why does this make such a HUGE difference?

With the 3-piece design the atomizer gets used over and over.  This leads to a dirty, clogged atomizer that becomes much less efficient over time.  A clean atomizer is essential for getting maximum vapor volume.  The more quality vapor you can get with each draw is very important for a satisfying and realistic “smoking” experience.  Reusable atomizer found in 3-piece designs need to be replaced frequently… a hidden cost not mentioned in the sales material.  Some products even have the additional headache of having to drop liquid nicotine solution into the filter.

The 2-piece design as found in the Green Smoke model eliminates the problems associated with the reusable atomizer.  Because the atomizer is built into the nicotine cartridge, you get a fresh atomizer every time you change cartridges (one cartridge is about the equivalent of 20-30 tobacco cigarettes).  This is why Green Smoke has the highest smoke volume industry.  No other models even come close.

It’s very common for many people to initially try a cheap 3-piece design only to be disappointed.  These are the same people that go on to say electronic smoking doesn’t work well.  It’s worth it to spend a few extra dollars and get a 2-piece design that you will be happy with.

Not all e-cigarettes are created equal.  It’s important to educate yourself on the differences so you don’t end up going through a lot of unnecessary (and expensive) trial and error.  Green Smoke offers a technologically advanced device that will give you the most realistic and satisfying smoking experience in the industry.  The highest smoke volume, convenience of use, reliability, cleanliness and an extended battery life all add up to make Green Smoke a wise electronic cigarette choice.

Now you can save a little money when you purchase an electronic cigarette.  Just found a great discount coupon for Green Smoke Electronic Cigarettes.

7 Features to Consider in an Electronic Cigarette


What is the best electronic cigarette? The fact is that most ecigarette models basically work the same way. In a nutshell, a battery powers an atomizer which vaporizes a nicotine/water solution that is inhaled by the user. The main differences are in overall quality/dependability as well as special/extra features that may appeal to you depending on your personality and needs.

7 Features To Consider When Choosing The Best Electronic Cigarette:

1. Overall look. Most manufacturers make their ecigarettes to look like a real cigarette. The cartridge is brown to look like a filter, the battery is made to look like main body of a tobacco cigarette and the end will even glow red when you inhale to add to a realistic smoking experience.

For smokers who are looking to express their individuality a bit more, you can choose from a variety of colors or exotic designs. Some companies even offer e-cigars and pipes.

2. Color of the LED. As mentioned above, the traditional look is a red LED on the tip that lights up when you take a drag. However, you can also choose a green or blue LED. What difference does it make? If your LED is red, you won’t get as much attention from other smokers because it looks so realistic. On the other hand, if the end lights up green or blue, then you will attract much more attention from curious smokers. This could be good or bad depending on your personality. Do you like to remain anonymous or do you enjoy socializing and answering question from strangers?

3. Vapor volume. How much vapor you’re able to get on one puff is a big deal for many smokers. Generally speaking, more volume equals a more satisfactory and realistic smoking experience.

4. Atomizer. The atomizer is what vaporizes the nicotine solution and contributes greatly to overall vapor volume. The most common problem is a clogged atomizer. You may want to consider a two-piece model where the nicotine cartridge and atomizer are one unit. Every time you change your cartridge you also get a fresh atomizer.

5. Battery life. Are you are going to use your ecigarette frequently throughout the day? If so, you want to make sure your battery has battery life that will last for a whole day. You may also want to consider a battery charger for your car if you’re on the road a lot.

6. Flavors. Do you want the traditional flavor of tobacco or menthol? Many companies also offer you the choice of experimenting with vanilla, chocolate, coffee or fruit flavors.

7. Nicotine strength. The cartridges generally come in several different nicotine strengths: High, medium, low and zero nicotine. If you’re trying to wean yourself off nicotine you may want to consider gradually cutting down on the strength levels.

Now that you know what to look for, with a little bit of research you should be able to find the best electronic cigarette that suits your personality and needs. Just don’t make the mistake of buying the cheapest ecigarette you find. It’s worth while to spend a few extra dollars initially to get a device that gives you the most realistic smoking experience without the mechanical problems found in many of the cheaper models.

Electronic Cigarette Review


Can the electronic cigarette offer a realistic smoking experience? This is the first thought that came to my mind when I first heard about e-cigarettes and no doubt you’re also wondering “how close to the real thing is it?” I’d like to share my electronic cigarette review with you in the hopes that it will give you a clearer idea of what to expect should you decide to try it out.

Smokers enjoy their cigarettes. If you smoke then you know what I’m talking about. For many smokers it is a love hate relationship. You know it’s bad for you but you enjoy the sensation and the actual ritual of smoking. That’s why nicotine delivery alternatives like gum and the patch don’t cut it… they don’t simulate the actual smoking experience.

This is where the e-cigarette comes in. It claims to replicate a real smoking experience but without the same health risks and other drawbacks of smoking tobacco. And you know what? It does a pretty good job. It may not be exactly the same but the similarities are great enough to satisfy most smokers.

When I first heard about electric smoking I thought it was a joke. I mean come on… a battery powered cigarette? You’ve got to be kidding! It wasn’t until recently (after hearing several positive reviews) that I finally decided to try it for myself.

I have to admit, I was pleasantly surprised….

The sensation of the vapor is incredibly similar to real cigarette smoke. The vapor has a warmth to it and it feels like real smoke when you inhale. You also get that immediate nicotine sensation which is very satisfying.

The taste was a lot like tobacco but not exactly. It was a bit smoother and cleaner tasting and I found myself actually preferring the flavor. I understand that other flavors are available like menthol, vanilla, fruit, etc., but I didn’t try any of those.

When you blow out the vapor you see a cloud that looks exactly like smoke but without the lingering smell. As a matter of fact the vapor is nearly odorless and the cloud (which is just vaporized water and nicotine) quickly disappears without a trace. The fact that the breath, hands, hair and clothes don’t stink is a huge plus!

Another huge plus for me is the price. A pack of cigarettes where I live is over $7. A single nicotine cartridge for most electronic cigarettes is around $2 and is the equivalent of about 30 cigarettes.

I know cigarette smoking is bad, but at least now there is a healthier and more cost efficient alternative. I hope my electronic cigarette review helped you decide if this is something that may benefit you or someone you love. If you’re a smoker I highly recommend giving the electronic cigarette a try… you may find yourself changing the way you smoke forever.

Tips on Using Your New Electronic Cigarette


Your new electronic cigarette is not a complicated device but with anything new there is always going to be a bit of a learning curve. Here are some tips on the best way to maximize your electronic smoking experience so you can save both time and money.

Tips for new electronic smokers:

1. Get extra batteries and atomizers. These are the two things that are most likely to need replacing. A quick word of caution: It’s a good idea to make sure you like your particular electronic cigarette model first before buying all the extras. Once you know for sure you’re satisfied with it, get the extra hardware… you’ll definitely get good use out of them!

2. Get a car charger and a USB passthrough. These will allow you to “vape” while driving or at your computer without the need to drain your batteries. Again, make sure you’re satisfied with your model before buying the extras.

3. Start off with a lower nicotine dose. Electronic cigarette cartridges typically come in several different doses: High, medium, low and none. When you first get your e-cigarette you’re going to want to be experimenting with it a lot, trying new flavors, etc. If you’re not careful you’ll end up absorbing more nicotine than you’re used to… and possibly increasing your addiction to it. Start off low and increase your dose after the novelty wears off if you feel like it.

4. Take long, slow puffs. A long, slow, steady puff will give you the most vapor volume. Short, hard puffs will tend to flood the atomizer causing reduced vapor production (you may even get liquid in your mouth).

5. Switch atomizers frequently. Atomizers tend to get clogged easily and when this happens the vapor volume is greatly reduced. Switch out your atomizer daily for best performance and be sure to clean them frequently. (This tip only applies to three-part ecigs where the atomizer is a separate unit. Some newer two-piece models have a built in atomizer in each individual cartridge).

Follow these tips and you will have a head start on being able to fully enjoy your new electronic cigarette as soon as possible. If you’re unsure about something be sure to check out some of the ecigarette forums online. These can be an excellent resource for answering nearly any question you can think of.

Congratulations on choosing a healthier smoking alternative… happy vaping!

What is an Electronic Cigarette?


ecig

When I first heard about the electronic cigarette my first reaction was that this was a novelty item that wasn’t to be taken seriously. But upon closer inspection I realized that this is an ingenious invention that has the potential to revolutionize the way people smoke forever.

What exactly is an electronic cigarette? Here is a description of what it is, how it works and how it can potentially benefit you or a loved one.

The e-cigarette is a battery powered device that looks, feels, tastes, and reacts like a cigarette… but it’s not a real cigarette! It even delivers nicotine but without the harmful smoke, tar and chemicals associated with real tobacco smoke. The nicotine is inhaled via a clean odorless vapor.

An electronic cigarette is typically made up of three parts:

1. Atomizer
2. Battery
3. Nicotine Cartridge

NOTE: Some of the newer models combine the atomizer and nicotine cartridges as one disposable unit. The advantage of this is that you always have a fresh atomizer instead of a single atomizer that can become clogged and less efficient over time. A fresh atomizer will insure that you get the highest volume of vapor on each puff, adding to a more satisfactory smoking experience.

Let’s go over what each component does:

1. Atomizer. This heats up and vaporizes a mixture of liquid nicotine. The sensation of inhaling this vapor is very similar to real cigarette smoke but without the same health risks. It even has a warm feel to it which adds to a realistic experience. The vapor produces a cloud that looks like smoke but is actually just a mist that quickly disappears.

2. Battery. Nothing too complicated here, just a rechargeable battery that powers the atomizer. It is shaped to look like the body of a real cigarette. The lifespan of batteries varies from model to model. The lifespan depends on the number of mouth puffs. Typically you will get 150 – 400 puffs before having to recharge the battery.

3. Nicotine cartridge. These cartridges are made up of a water/nicotine solution. A single cartridge is typically the equivalent of 1 – 1.5 packs of tobacco cigarettes. Different nicotine strengths are available in high, low, or medium. Most manufacturers also offer a variety of flavors ranging from traditional tobacco flavor, menthol, vanilla, chocolate and fruit flavors.

The electronic cigarette is surprisingly similar to the real thing but without the same health risks. There is no lingering offensive odor. It’s also a lot less expensive than tobacco cigarettes. This combined with the fact that you can use it anywhere makes e-smoking a sensible and healthier alternative, one worth considering either for yourself or a loved one.

FDA Can’t Regulate ‘Electronic Cigarettes’


The Food and Drug Administration can’t block tobacco distributors from importing “electronic cigarettes” into the United States, a federal judge in Washington, D.C., ruled in a decision that could save at least one domestic distributor from going under.
U.S. District Judge Richard Leon rejected the FDA’s ban on importation, saying electronic cigarettes are regulated by the Tobacco Act, just like regular cigarettes.
The FDA detained more than 35 shipments headed for the distribution companies Smoking Everywhere and NJOY, saying the products qualified as drug-device combinations under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. In the FDA’s view, the electronic cigarettes weren’t simply therapeutic; they also affected the structure or function of the body.
Judge Leon disagreed.
“[A]ll they purport to do is offer consumers the same recreational effects as a regular cigarette,” he wrote, calling the FDA’s argument “bootstrapping run amuk.”
Leon said the FDA’s rationale would force him to exclude traditional cigarettes from the list of acceptable tobacco products.
“Congress did not intend tobacco products to be drugs merely because they deliver nicotine,” Leon wrote.
Smoking Everywhere touts the product as an “alternative to traditional cigarettes that delivers the same sensation as smoking,” but “without combustion or the use of cancerous byproducts.” Electronic cigarettes vaporize liquid nicotine, allowing the user to inhale nicotine without the tar, carbon monoxide, ash and smell of traditional cigarettes, according to the ruling.
But they are not meant to affect the body in any way different from regular cigarettes, Leon wrote. And the companies never touted them as having therapeutic effects, such as treating nicotine addiction, the ruling states. Instead, the companies were promoting nicotine use by encouraging consumers to use the product as often as they would traditional cigarettes.
The court granted the distributors’ motion for a preliminary injunction blocking the enforcement of the FDA’s ban on the importation of electronic cigarettes.
Electronic cigarettes are the sole product line for Florida-based Smoking Everywhere, according to the ruling. The distributor’s inventory is “already near depletion,” and no domestic electronic cigarette makers exist. Smoking Everywhere has sold more than 600,000 electronic smoking kits since it began operating more than a year ago. Competitor NJOY has sold more than 135,000 since its opening in 2007.
Leon said the case demonstrates the FDA’s “drive to maximize its regulatory power” – another example of its “aggressive efforts to regulate recreational tobacco products as drugs or devices.”

Propylene Glycol: An Air Cleaning Germicide


smoke

Far from posing a threat to our health, the propylene glycol in e-smoking liquids might help keep us healthy. It would accomplish that by its germicidal action. It kills many of the major bacteria that threaten lung entry into our bodies.

Until yesterday, I was unfamiliar with this potentially beneficial consequence of propylene glycol vapor.

Back in the late ’30s, researchers at the University of Chicago stumbled onto its effectiveness as a germ-killer, as related in this Time magazine story from Nov. 16, 1942:

“A powerful preventive against pneumonia, influenza and other respiratory diseases may be promised by a brilliant series of experiments conducted during the last three years at the University of Chicago’s Billings Hospital. Dr. Oswald Hope Robertson last week was making final tests with a new germicidal vapor — propylene glycol — to sterilize air. If the results so far obtained are confirmed, one of the age-old searches of man will finally achieve its goal…

“…the researchers found that the propylene glycol itself was a potent germicide. One part of glycol in 2,000,000 parts of air would — within a few seconds — kill concentrations of air-suspended pneumococci, streptococci and other bacteria numbering millions to the cubic foot.

“How did it work? Respiratory disease bacteria float about in tiny droplets of water breathed, sneezed and coughed from human beings. The germicidal glycol also floats in infinitesimally small particles. Calculations showed that if droplet had to hit droplet, it would take two to 200 hours for sterilization of sprayed air to take place. Since sterilization took place in seconds, Dr. Robertson concluded that the glycol droplets must give off gas molecules which dissolve in the water droplets and kill the germs within them.

“Dr. Robertson placed groups of mice in a chamber and sprayed its air first with propylene glycol, then with influenza virus. All the mice lived. Then he sprayed the chamber with virus alone. All the mice died.”

The complete Time story can be read here: Air Germicide – TIME

In a scientific summary of the discovery, it was noted that “Tests on possible deleterious effects of breathing propylene glycol containing atmospheres over long periods of time are being carried out.”

Those tests were done and a second summary report on propylene glycol vapor was released:

“Propylene glycol is harmless to man when swallowed or injected into the veins. It is also harmless to mice who have breathed it for long periods. But medical science is cautious — there was still a remote chance that glycol might accumulate harmfully in the erect human lungs which, unlike those of mice, do not drain themselves. So last June Dr. Robertson began studying the effect of glycol vapor on monkeys imported from the University of Puerto Rico’s School of Tropical Medicine. So far, after many months’ exposure to the vapor, the monkeys are happy and fatter than ever. Dr. Robertson does not expect mankind to live, like his monkeys, continuously in an atmosphere of glycol vapor; but it should be most valuable in such crowded places as schools and theaters, where most respiratory diseases are picked up.”

The monkeys lived in enclosures filled with propylene glycol vapor. No deleterious effect was ever reported. And the concentrations of PG we inhale on a regular basis surely must equal the amount inhaled by the monkeys for this test. Obviously, no scientist saw a time when a device would atomize a PG mist that would then be inhaled for fun. But time and technology has given us the electronic cigarette. With each inhalation, we are washing our lungs with a germicidal agent used today in some “air sanitizers”.

Glycerine, by the way, has some germicidal impact, but not, apparently, to the degree provided by inhaling propylene glycol vapor. Glycerine is now used by dairy farmers to help prevent bacteria entering a cow’s teats after milking. Glycerine both softens the teats and kills bacteria.

One more quote on PG: “The vapour from as little as 0.5 mg of propylene glycol can kill nearly all the microorganisms in a liter of heavily contaminated air within 15 seconds.”

The initial experiments with PG vapor were part of a search to find ways to create clean rooms, so the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic that killed so many millions would never be repeated. Today, researchers have wondered online if propylene glycol vapor might not offer protection against a widely feared coming pandemic of bird flu, tagged H5N1.

Imagine e-smokers being healthier than non-smokers in such a scenario.

Which Type of Electronic Cigarette is Best for You?


E-cigarette

Basically, there are two main types of electronic cigarette … actually, more but two important ones in my opinion.  I’ve read a lot of bad reviews on the mini-electronic-cigarette, so I won’t discuss those.

The first one is often recommended for newbies to electronic cigarettes because they are 2-piece and very easy to operate.  You simply use them and when the cartridge is empty, discard it and replace it with another cartridge.  That’s all there is to it.  They come with 2 batteries and you will need to keep one charged and use one.  Those are the only two pieces that come with this electronic cigarette, the battery and the cartridge.  The cartridge contains the atomizer and the nicotine liquid (eliquid).  You can buy the replacement cartridges in different strengths depending on what you want, from strong to mild to no nicotine at all.  The Super Cigarette Electronic Cigarette is this type of electronic cigarette.  The Super Cigarette Electronic Cigarette also has the advantage of being able to be refilled using any strength eliquid you choose. Many 2-piece electronic cigarettes cannot be refilled … you can only purchase cartridges for them, which is a more expensive way to go, but if you like the ease of just replacing the cartridge, this is a good electronic cigarette for you.

joyeThe Joye 510 is a 3-piece electronic cigarette.  It’s often a favorite of more experienced e-cigarette users.  It consists of the battery, the atomizer and the cartridge.  You can also purchase additional cartridges for this electronic cigarette, but it is most often refilled with the eliquid of your choice, using the strength and even different flavors of eliquid that you prefer.

Both types of electronic cigarette comes with a charger for the batteries, two batteries (one for use while the other is charging), and extra cartridges. In addition, the Joye 510 comes with 2 atomizers.  Additional cartridges, atomizers, batteries for replacement when needed are available for both types of electronic cigarettes.

Why Am I Selling Electronic Cigarettes?


avatar18199_1

You might have noticed the ad for the Green Smoke electronic cigarette.

Why Am I Selling Electronic Cigarettes?

The answer is quite simple … I believe in them.  I am an Internet Marketer, but rarely sell products as an affiliate.  I sell my own products, mostly websites.  You can see Niche Blogging Treausres here and Flip Ace here.  Those are my products.  The reason I don’t sell as an affiliate is because most of the products out there in the ad networks are scams and ripoffs and I don’t want to be associated with them.

Don’t even get me started on the forced continuity ads that offer free samples and then charge your credit card into oblivion and are impossible to cancel without canceling your credit card.  I’ve been a victim of one of those scams before with a “Free Trial” offer from IQ Derma that ended up costing me $300 before I had to cancel my credit card to get rid of them … and it’s not fun.

My nicotine addiction story on this blog is true. I have been a smoker since I was 16 years old.  My mother was also and died of lung cancer a couple of years ago.  I was there when she took her last breath.  It still haunts me.

I am using electronic cigarettes, and am so happy to finally find a smoking alternative that actually works for me, that I ordered them from China (where electronic cigarettes are manufactured) in quantity and am offering them for sale on this site, along with all the information you need to make your own decision about electronic cigarettes (provided that you are at least 18 years of age).

You can pick one up at many malls for an outrageous price from Smoking Everywhere.  They also have a “free trial” that I have reports from other people isn’t free at all.  One girl in a forum reports returning the product within the 14 day period and still being charged on her credit card for the full $99 price.  She still has not been refunded.

You could also find a manufacturer in China and order them but unless you are ordering larger quantities, the shipping cost is very high. There are numerous companies on the Net with websites selling electronic cigarettes for $120 to over $200.  That’s a heck of a markup for a product that they get for much cheaper from China and in my opinion, a real ripoff.

So that’s it.  I decided to endorse the electronic cigarette company that I feel offers the best product.  It’s a product I use and recommend to my family, so I feel very comfortable offering them for sale to adults who are smokers and would like to try a smoking alternative.

Prominent Tobacco Researchers Expose Double Standard in FDA’s Study of Electronic Cigarettes and Challenge FDA’s Alarmist Attitude Toward the Devices


electronicsigaret

The press release can be found here.

I have copied it below, as well:

Prominent Public Health Physicians and Tobacco Researchers Expose Double Standard in the FDA’s Recent Study of Electronic Cigarettes and Challenge the FDA’s Alarmist Attitude Toward the Devices

Contact: Thomas R. Kiklas, Director of Media, inLife LLC, 949-250-9600 ext 108,
tkiklas@myinlife.com

BOSTON, July 27 /Standard Newswire/ — The FDA recently went public with misleading information about the safety of electronic cigarettes and the marketing of the devices, not only using its clout but recruiting other prominent organizations to demonize a product that has great public health benefit potential.

A group of prominent doctors and tobacco researchers, including Dr. Michael Siegel at the Boston University School of Public Health, Dr. Joel Nitzkin of the AAPHP Tobacco Control Task Force, and Dr. Brad Rodu, Endowed Chair, Tobacco Harm Reduction Research University of Louisville, challenge the FDA to provide the full quantitative data of the study upon which the FDA has based its warning against electronic cigarettes. They are concerned that the FDA’s disingenuous targeting of electronic cigarettes through a biased presentation of the scientific data has had significant negative impact upon the public perception of electronic cigarettes, when the best available evidence suggests that these have shown that the devices offer great potential to reduce serious health issues among traditional tobacco smokers.

In a July 22 news release, the FDA cited the detectable presence of carcinogens and “toxic chemicals” in a “small sample” of electronic cigarette cartridges as reason for alarm, singling out nitrosamines as particularly toxic. What the FDA fails to inform the public is that detectable amounts of carcinogens are also present in nicotine replacement products such as NicoDerm CQ and Nicorette gum, both approved by the FDA, and nitrosamines that can be also found in food items such bacon and beer. This double standard and alarmist attitude has had the significant and unfortunate effect of inducing hysteria among the public, discouraging tobacco smokers from using a product which is thought to be a significantly safer alternative to traditional tobacco.

Regrettably, the FDA has used biased reporting of this small and inconclusive study, the complete results of which have not been made public, to secure the vocal support of groups such as the American Academy of Pediatrics Tobacco Consortium, the Institute for Global Health, and the American Lung Association in their attack on electronic cigarettes. These researchers argue that it is absurd to consider taking electronic cigarettes off the market when it is the conventional ones which have been shown to be killing people. Further, the electronic cigarette community calls for accurate and fair reporting relative to the findings and statements of prominent medical professionals in favor of this new and important technology and challenges the media to tell the other side of the story.

“The FDA’s laboratory findings actually indicate that electronic cigarettes are much, much safer than conventional cigarettes,” says Dr. Michael Siegel. “The traces of carcinogens present are also present in nicotine replacement products. The FDA and the anti-smoking groups have fallen into a huge analytical trap as they have failed to ask the appropriate question. The question they are asking is: ‘Are electronic cigarettes safe?’ That is not the right question. The right question is: ‘Are electronic cigarettes much safer than traditional ones?’”

Dr. Rodu states, “The FDA tested e-cigarettes for TSNAs using a questionable sampling regimen, and the methods that were so sensitive that the results may have no possible significance to users. The agency failed to report specific levels of these contaminants, and it has failed to conduct similar testing of nicotine medicines that have been sold in the U.S. for over 20 years. These are not the actions of an agency that is science-based and consumer-focused. These pseudo-scientific actions are clearly intended to form the justification for banning a category of products that are probably 99.9% safer than cigarettes.”

Dr. Joel Nitzkin speaking as individual states, “The newly adopted FDA/Tobacco legislation will give full FDA approval to currently marketed conventional cigarettes. The new law encourages cigarette companies to produce new “reduced exposure” cigarettes to be marketed as reduced exposure products, with no scientific evidence that such reductions in exposure will reduce risk of future tobacco related illness and death. In the context of these provisions of the newly adopted FDA/Tobacco bill — FDA should be encouraging, not maligning the manufacture and sale of electronic cigarettes, and working with manufacturers to assure the highest possible quality control.”
