  • A New Method of Getting Nicotine Flavor

    New Trend

    Vaping has become the more favorable way to get your nicotine buzz, without the smoke and all the harmful chemicals contained in traditional cigarettes. This is making it quite untrendy to be a tobacco smoker. Although this practice provides an indistinguishable approach, with a very alike experience, vaping couldn't be any more dissimilar than traditional smoking where it actually counts.

    So, if you or somebody you know are looking for some reasons to make the switch, then these 5 should do the trick:

    Reason #1: Vaping is Cleaner

    Everyone realizes how unclean traditional cigarettes are. I mean, from the multitudinous litter, to the disgusting ends that were chemically-filled, to seeing powdery residue all over the pace, to the way it stains your hands, and just overall, it’s entirely not an appealing routine by any measure. Vaping on the flip side, removes all of that away!

    Reason #2: It's Odor-Free

    Vapor is pleasant and pristine in every manner, and with that comes an insufficiency of scent. If you’re still smoking, visualize how delightful it will be to actually smell nice!

    Reason #3: Fire Hazard Free

    In May of 2009, a report from FEMA highlighted traditional cigarettes inducing 7,600 fire-related deaths each year. Clearly flammable and combustible, they can be really unsafe. Vaping devices on the other hand are non-flammable making them a safer alternative inside your home.

    Reason #4: Stainless Teeth from Vaping

    The tar from tobacco can stain your teeth. Vapor doesn't leave repugnant tar behind. This is one of the top basis to select vapor as your favored method to deliver nicotine for being able to vape rather than smoke.

    Reason #5: The E-Juice Flavor Choices

    Premium American Made E-Cig Juice made with only the absolute best ingredients. We make sure that our e-liquids are second to none, for a price that everyone can afford. Whether you're a Banana E-Juice fan or a Menthol Madness fan, we've all the bases covered to help you get the flavor that'll help you quit smoking for good. Not to mention, vaping doesn't destroy your taste buds like smoking does, so you’ll be able to taste our e-juices, along with an array of other things too!

    This is just the beginning. Being able to vape opens up doors to health and life.

  • March Vaping Terms: Propylene Glycol and Glycerol

    PG

    You might have heard these 2 terms thrown around often in the vaping industry: Propylene Glycol and Glycerol. They’re ingredients used in most e-liquids or e-juices. Today, we’re going to give a quick breakdown of both, so let’s get right to it:

    Propylene Glycol: This FDA-approved for countless purposes, including use in theatrical smoke machines, as a solvent for food colorings and as an additive in medicine and food. The Select Committee had weighed the available information and concluded that there’s zero evidence in with the available information on propylene glycol and propylene glycol monostearate that advocates any reason to suspect that these substances are a hazard to the public when used at levels that’re now current or that might reasonably be expected in the future (Source: FDA).

    It's a solvent for several water-insoluble drugs intended for parenteral administration; an ingredient of hydrophilic ointment; a viscous organic solvent frequently used in pharmaceutical preparations to dissolve drug substances with limited aqueous solubility; used in part for preparing injectable solutions of diazepam, phenytoin, pentobarbital, and other drugs. (Source: Farlex Partner Medical Dictionary 2012)

    Glycerol is a naturally occurring chemical. It used as a medicine. Some uses and dosage forms have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

    It’s taken by mouth for weight loss, improving exercise performance, helping the body replace water lost during diarrhea and vomiting’ and reducing pressure inside the eye in people with glaucoma. Athletes also use glycerol to keep from becoming dehydrated. (Source WebMD).

  • The A-List Vaping Celebrities of Tinseltown

    Penn Vaping

    Several years ago, electronic cigarettes made they grand debut on the Hollywood big screen. You would see these A-List celebrities you wouldn't think vape actually do it. Since then, e-cigarettes have gained so much mainstream attention, it’s hard not to ignore them.

    With that said, we've compiled list of some pretty well-known celebrities in the movie and entertainment world that have put vaping center stage for all to see.

    Johnny Depp: He introduced the electronic cigarette onto the big screen in the film The Tourist. In one of the scenes, you see him vaping in front of a “no smoking” sign. Depp has been a long-time tobacco smoker and he has tried for some time now to kick the habit. While he debuted the e-cigarette on the big screen, Depp has also brought vaping into his personal life.

    Katy Perry: The “California Girl" who's most certainly undeniable for sure. When she takes a break from singing, Katy may be spotted taking a few puffs on her e-cig. While there aren't many pictures to prove it, some “sources” report that she looks to be a moderately knowledgeable vaping user.

    Leonardo DiCaprio: With California being one of the first states to ban smoking in most indoor spaces back in 1995, celebrities like Leonardo seem to be enjoying the ability to vape indoors. He was spotted puffing on an e-cig at the 2014 Golden Globes and again for last month’s 87th Annual Academy Awards.

    Sean Penn: Another celebrity you may spot “vaping”. Even during interviews, he’s not shy about taking out his vaporizer for a few puffs. Sean pledged to give up his four-pack-a-day tobacco smoking habit after watching his father die of lung cancer back in 2001.

    Britney Spears: After being scrutinized for smoking cigarettes too close to her children, Britney can now be spotted using her e-cigarette. Last year, she publicly reported that  electronic cigarettes allowed her to take back control of her life and finally “win” her battle against the awful habit of smoking.

    Robert Pattinson: He has been reported to be pretty open about his attempt to take care of himself and push aside the habit of smoking tobacco cigarettes. In an interview conducted in 2012, Robert pulled out his electronic cigarette and explained how he was using this device to help get over his smoking habit. Last year, he was photographed on his film sets still vaping away.

    There are more celebrates out there that’re starting to do this, and some are even partnering up with different vaping companies as well. It’s all in friendly competition, as it’s good to have them on our side to help us fight the battle against big tobacco.

  • You Might Be This Type of Vaping User

    vaping users

    There are different kinds of vaping users with diverse passions that all share one thing in common, their joy for vaping. Let’s breakdown these 5, shall we.

    Type #1: The Newbies: We've all been there before. When we were newbies, we too were overly thrilled about a basic entry-level electronic cigarette or starter kit. There were so many flavors and different types of vaping hardware, it was just insane how much there was to learn. Over the course of time, experience with vaping rises, and with that comes new and enjoyable experiences.

    Type #2:  The Relaxed Vaping User: These users recognize a very little concerning e-cigarettes. Their equipment choice is having functionality over the form of the device.  It's the enjoyment  they get while keeping their gadget plain and simple.

    Type #3: The Tinkerer: These individuals have a great amount enthusiasm for vaping and their not accustomed to using a standard tool. They’re a huge fan of MODs as a result of their capabilities of different customization methods. They've turned their love of vaping into a hobby by doing this type of stuff

    Type #4: The Coach: They're seasoned and are consistently eager to share their new discovered understanding about vaping. They do lots of research prior to making a new purchase.  You should also know that it’s fantastic to have a mentor around when a newbie is present because the mentor will most likely show them the ropes when it comes to vaping.

    Type #5: The Mixologist: The mixologist has most likely attempted close to every e-liquid/e-juice flavor out there.  Actually, they also have become tired of the pre-made options. They might either make their own e-juice themselves or mix combinations from pre-made flavors.

  • The Power of The Juice Bundles

    blast_bundle_e-liqud

    It has been told countless times just how important e-liquid/e-juice is to making any vaping device work. No juice means no vaping. It's as simple as that. E-liquid is the very source of power for e-cigarettes besides the battery. While buying your favorite e-juice at Lizard Juice is certainly less expensive than buying packs of traditional tobacco cigarettes, there’s an even substantial money savings opportunity out there if you’re opened to paying a slightly higher initial cost. If you buy your e-liquid in bundles, you’re looking at yet another way of really saving some money.

    At Lizard Juice, we sell them by the bundles, with 3 different e-liquid flavors per bundle, such as our Flavor Blast Bundle that includes: Berry Blast, Orange Blast, and VoodDoo. Not so much of a full-flavor person. No worries. We have other bundles such as our Merry Mint Bundle that includes: Spearmint, Mint Chocolate Chip, and Strawberry Mojito. We've 9 e-liquid bundles that would fit your needs.

    Now, you’ll also be astounded to learn that it doesn't take that much per bottle to fill your vaping device. That right there says it all. No matter which way you try to formulate it, the amount of potential money you would be saving is massive. That’s not the only advantage though.

    When you buy e-juice by the bundle, it just becomes more convenient for you, as you already have what you need picked out without all the possible hassle. You see, we all know that while there are plenty of stores out there that carry all types of vaping hardware and e-liquids, they’re not all carrying identical brands. You might have a tougher time finding the right e-liquid(s) you need. Ordering from us online allows you to hopefully be worry free when you’re looking for the right e-juices and other vaping hardware. We also have an excellent customer service team that’re vapers too, who can walk you through the different hardware and e-juices on our website.

    At the end of the day, you're not only see the savings, the different flavors, and the overall convenience of buying bundles of e-liquids or hardware, but you also get to experience  the enjoyment of a better vaping lifestyle in general.

  • Lizard Juice Saved My Life :: "My Doctor Recommended E-Cigs to Help me Quit"

    LJsavedmylifeBanner
    " I smoked a pack, sometimes more, of cigarettes a day for 37 years.  On May 13, 2014, I went to a new doctor who told me I needed to quit, as have other doctors in the past.  Told her I tried to quit many times over the years with patches, gum, and everything else I could think of, failed every time, and resigned myself to the fact I'd never be able to quit.  She recommended using e-cigs, telling me that several doctors and nurses at the hospital used them with great success.
    Luckily there is a Lizard Juice store nearby.  The woman there was very helpful, asked me several questions about my smoking habit, letting me try several different flavors, and recommended I start with 24 mg nicotine level.  As of today, I'm down to 6 mg. My next step is 3 mg (mixing 6 and 0) and my plan is to be at 0 mg by my first anniversary of being tobacco-free.  I'm proud of myself, my doctor is proud of me and says she doesn't care if I use e-cigs indefinitely since what's harmful in cigarettes is not the nicotine.    "

  • E-Cigs 101: Your Questions Answered (Part 1)

    What is an E-Cigarette?

    An e-cigarette is a device designed to help people quit smoking. It is also known as a liquid vaporizer. Studies have shown it is a healthier alternative to smoking AND it helps save hundreds of dollars a year!

    The act of vaping has also been picked up as a hobby by many young audiences who enjoy mechanical mods, smoke tricks, and cloud chasing (which we will discuss in advanced blogs). AnatomyofECigarette-01

    Why does Nicotine Level Matter?

    If you have too little, you'll want to pick up the cigarette again. If you're in doubt, Round UP! It is always better to get too much nicotine than be tempted to pick up a cigarette. Remember, The FDA has still not proven nicotine to be harmful by itself. What is harmful is the carcinogens and by-products produced from cigarettes and second-hand smoke. Nicotine is very comparable to caffeine with the effects it has on your body, with the exception that it is a very addictive substance.

    There are a ton of E-Cigarette companies out there, why should I go with Lizard Juice?

    Our motto is "Changing Lives One Person at a Time" and we try our best to run our company like that. Whether it's our own employees, or someone walking into one of our stores for the first time, we hope that someone leaves impacted from the simple decision of bettering themselves by switching to electronic cigarettes.

Our brand stays consistent across all of our locations. We always offer coupons & discounts to loyal customers. We hold contests monthly. We're coming out with new juices often.

    Questions From FB Fans: Q: "I heard that there is some thing in the juice that helps clean out your lungs. Is that true?" - Christy P.

    A: There are 5 basic ingredients in our juices: Vegetable Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Natural Flavoring, Nicotine, and Water.  None of those have been proven to clean out your lungs, though Propylene Glycol is a common ingredient found in asthma inhaler.

    Q: "Do you get more nicotine from e-vape then actual cigs been curious about this for a while? Thanks " Trish C.

    A: It is possible to get more nicotine from vaping then cigarettes because you're likely to vape more than smoke a cigarette (which is a good thing!). This is only applicable to those who have nicotine in their juices.  Remember though, the goal for most people is to eventually quit from nicotine as well.

    Q: My friend thinks she is gaining weight from your e-juices. Is it high in carbs?

    A: As stated before, we only have 5 ingredients in our juices. None of those have gluten, carbs, dairy, nuts, soy, rice, eggs, shellfish, sugar or anything else that could make you gain weight. Vaping has helped several people curb cravings but it shouldn't be the reason for packing on pounds.

  • Vaping Etiquette 101

    woman vaping inside bar. Vaping allowed

    With the rise in e-cigs and the hobby of vaping, you can't go far without seeing someone using one of these devices. I'm sure you've got many questions such as, "Is this legal? Can I vape here? Is inhaling someone else's smoke healthy?"

    That's why we have created VAPING ETIQUETTE 101

    1. Ask Permission

    With many large corporate stores & restaurants now having a no smoking policy, it's easy to want to pull out your e-cig. However, just because there is a no smoking policy doesn't mean that they allow vaping. If you are indoors, ask the manager or employee if it's okay to vape inside. By doing something as simple as this, and being respectful about it, you are paving the way for them making it a vape friendly zone!

    2. Educate 

    Most people who have never smoked will not understand e-cigarettes or the need to vape. They're going to want you to go outside with the smokers and do your thing.  If they ask any questions or are curious, don't be afraid to have a friendly conversation with them about vaping! This also means you should be prepared with some information to share with them!

    If you ever have questions about vaping, what is in our juices, the benefits to ecigs or more, feel free to ask us on our Facebook page or through our Live Chat on our website! 

    3. Be Respectful & Polite

    If you are vaping in an area where someone feels uncomfortable and they ask you to stop, remain calm. The last thing you want to do is pick a fight and make an awful stereotype for vapers.

    4. Don't cloud chase in public.

    Cloud chasing is huge in the vape community. It can also be annoying to people in public who don't understand it. Cloud chase in your own home, or in your local e-cig store that's okay with it. Places like the theaters, restaurants, and retail stores are definitely off-limits for this activity.

    We're glad that e-cigarettes are making a huge difference in the lives of many, but it will take time before it becomes more acceptable in more places. In the meantime, keep all these things in mind!

    "I am thrilled to be able to let you folks know that because of your products, I celebrated an entire year of tobacco-free living on Dec. 1st 2014! I began smoking cigarettes at age 30 . . . dumb move, I know and had a pack-a-day Winston habit for the next 30 years. After Thanksgiving last year, a friend visited who was trying to quit using an e-cig and encouraged me to try. Lizard Juice was the first & only brand I have used and from 12/01/13 I haven't had a single cigarette!! It would be hard to say what flavor is my favorite, there are so many great ones. Mocha was my first and I love it to this day. I am 60 years old and have a young grandson that I adore. I want many more fun-filled years with him and smoking was stopping that future.
