    E-Cigarettes and why they're awesome

    E-cigarettes are currently taking the tobacco industry by storm, and for good reason! Finally there is a means of 'smoking' tobacco without the negative health consequences.

    The cigarette industry has been a booming business since the mid-20th century when they were first popularized - although they were even around as early as the 9th century, in the form of reeds and smoking tubes in Mexico and Central America.

    At the beginning of the 20th century, the annual per capita cigarette consumption in America was around 54 cigarettes. This number reached a peak of 4259 cigarettes per capita in 1965, notably due to their depiction in movies and other western media. Movie stars were payed generous sums of money to merely be holding a cigarette in a movie, and subsequently the act of smoking became 'chic', or fashionable.

    At the peak of cigarette consumption in 1965, the negative health consequences were not largely understood by the general populace - also a contributing factor to the unprecedented number of people taking up smoking.

    Even now, with widespread knowledge of the cigarette's harmful side effects, smoking still is a pervasive activity in many communities, and countless people continue to struggle with addiction.

    Thankfully, with the invention of the e-cigarette, there is hope for a safer means of ingesting tobacco - and in some cases, a means of 'weaning' addicts off of tobacco altogether.

    Electronic cigarette sales increased from 50,000 in 2008 to 3.5 million in 2012. This meteoric rise in popularity is largely self explanatory - early indications from studies done on the health benefits/detriments of e-cigs are promising, and although further, long term studies are needed - it seems clear that they are a much safer alternative to smoking. Furthermore, with a wide variety of flavours - e-juices are pleasant to vape, providing the user with a tasty cloud of vapour as well as that familiar feeling of comfortable relaxation.

    The Titan 2 - Vape Mate's Honest Review

    After sampling this vaporizer, we decided we needed to include it in our range! 

    Admittedly, we weren't expecting much from such an inexpensive vaporizer - but boy were we proven wrong!

    It is an exceptionally sturdy device, looking as if it is truly built to last. You needn't worry about toting this vaporizer around in your bag/pocket - its solid design means it can withstand even rougher than usual handling conditions.

    This one can really pack a punch when set to its maximum temperature setting (220°C). It provides vapour clouds to rival even the PAX. But people looking for a milder vaping experience need not worry - you can simply reduce the temperature to one more suited to your preference.

    The quality of the vapour produced is very good, there is no combustion occurring and thus no smoke produced - even on the highest setting. The heating cycle can be activated multiple times on the same material, though eventually it will start to produce smoke if the temperature is high enough.

    We have found that for best results, you should run the first cycle near or on the highest temp. setting, and then reduce the temperature for subsequent cycles. We do not recommend more than three heating cycles on the same material, as eventually, smoke will be produced.

    The device is not quite as sleek in appearance or feel as the Vapormax V, and overall we would rate the Vapormax vaping experience as more pleasant, but for its price, the Titan 2 should definitely not be overlooked!

    We encourage you to find as many reviews for this device as possible before purchasing, so that you can be assured of the device's quality.

    We look forward to bringing you more quality products in the near future!

    Smoking VS Vaporizing

    Over the years, numerous studies have proved that vaporizers have numerous health benefits and are a much healthier alternative to smoking. The reason for this is that they heat the blends at a much lower temperature, instead of burning them. While vaporizers are highly beneficial to people who have been prescribed for medical purposes, they are also beneficial for all smokers. Many scientific studies have examined vaporizers and the results all state that the release of harmful constituents is dramatically reduced or completely eliminated when they are used.

    1. In 2007, a study by University of California at San Francisco published in the Official Journal of the American Academy of Neurology examined the effects of a vaporizer and found that "using CO as an indicator, there was virtually no exposure to harmful combustion products using the vaporizing device. Since it replicates smoking's efficiency at producing the desired effect using smaller amounts of the active ingredient as opposed to pill forms, this device has great potential for  improving the therapeutic utility blends."

    2. A 2006 study performed by researchers at Leiden University testing a Volcano Vaporizer claims "Our [vaporizer] results show that a safe and effective delivery system seems to be available to patients. The final uptake is comparable to the smoking, while avoiding the respiratory disadvantages of smoking."

    3. In a 2001 study testing a device called the M1 Volatizer, researchers discovered that "it is possible to vaporize medically active compoundsby heating to a temperature short of the point of combustion, thereby eliminating or substantially reducing harmful smoke toxins that are normally present in smoke."

    4. Researchers from the University at New York at Albany and the University of Southern California tested 7,000 participants in a 2007 study and concluded that "vaporizer users are only 40% as likely to report respiratory symptoms as users who do not vaporize, even when age, sex, cigarette use, and amount of blends consumed are controlled."
