Our series of beginner’s guide’s aims to help those who are new to the world of vaping through the basics of what equipment is needed to get started. We’ll explore e-Liquids more closely, explaining how they are made and what they are made from and also look at how smoking traditional cigarettes compares to vaping.
An e-Liquid is the most common name for the liquid that is used in conjunction with e-Cigarettes. All e-Cigarettes use e-Liquids to create the vapour which is inhaled by the user. The vapour is produced by the e-Cigarette heating the liquid. Other names used to describe e-Liquid are e-Juice, Vape (derived from Vapour) and Smoke Juice.
As part of our beginner's guide to vaping series, we have tried to create a definitive list of common terminology.
Within this article, I will endeavour to explain what exactly the Tobacco Products Directive is and also highlight the key points that effect e-Cigarettes and e-Liquids. I’ll show you what changes you can expect from a consumer side of things and also the new measures that producers, manufacturers and brands such as Red Vape now have to take to comply fully with the legislation.
The overwhelming health message to smokers is that quitting is the best option but given that smoking is notoriously difficult to stop it is easy to see why many smoking are transferring to e-cigarettes as a healthier and cleaner option.
Vaping is a relatively new phenomenon that has been with us for less than a decade. Reviews into long-term side effects take time and so for these to be completed we need to sit tight. However, there are lots of studies and research that has been completed which can help us reach an informed answer to our question.
Not every country is quite so friendly when it comes to vaping and if you are planning a trip and want to vape it’s worth doing your homework before you leave.
Roughly twelve weeks have passed since the Brexit vote on June 23rd where the UK narrowly voted to leave the European Union. So far very little has changed, the stock markets and currency had a little wobble straight after the vote, but these now seem to have calmed down.

By 1 B.C. American Indians began to use the tobacco plant as a medicine and in some religious rituals. It’s highly likely that they were smoking and chewing tobacco and in some cases using it as a halogenic enema
The web is packed full of guides and videos on how to make the biggest clouds, but there is not a lot out there covering flavour. Most of what I’ve learnt about achieving the best flavours from e-liquids has been through trial and error, mainly error, so I thought I’d try and help out those flavour chasers just starting out with a few hints and tips.
Vaping can seem a bit overwhelming and complicated to the uninitiated but once you know the basics and the pitfalls to avoid, it’s actually straightforward, enjoyable and you’ll almost certainly never want to go back to the cigarettes.
A throat hit is the feeling that the vapour from your e-cig gives you when you inhale it and it hits the back of your throat. Throat hits are not all the same though when vaping, and this isn’t too surprising when you think about the variables involved when vaping.
Because vaping is so new, whilst you are free to vape wherever you like at home and in the street, there still exists a lot of confusion about where you can vape in the UK. We’ve done our research to help you know where you can and where you can’t.

We wanted to write a new TPD post to solely cover e-liquids and how the new laws will impact what we do here at Red Vape. A lot of hard work has been spent over the last year ensuring our e-liquids are fully TPD compliant and this in practice means our product range will see some changes. We’ve taken the TPD as an opportunity to further improve our e-liquids by redesigning some of the flavour profiles and improving our packaging.
From May 20th 2017 all e-liquids sold in the UK must be compliant with the regulations set out in the Tobacco Products Directive (TPD). All of these new laws mean it’s been a busy time for us here at Red Vape as we’ve had to ensure all our e-liquids are fully TPD compliant.

There are still some cities where vaping is not only accepted but positively welcomed. In this article, we look at some of the best places for vapers to visit, so that you can plan your next vacation.
Propylene Glycol (PG) and Vegetable Glycerine (VG) is one of those areas that can sometimes make little sense to new vapers. Essentially PG and VG do the same job so why do we need both when making e-liquids any why do different e-liquids have different ratios of PG and VG?
No vaper wants to be responsible for the untimely end of their little furry friends and so in this post we’ll be sharing some advice on how to vape responsibly around your pet. We’ll also explain what signs your pet might display if they ingest e-liquid and what you can do should this happen
It is common knowledge that smoking around children is a big No No! The damaging effects that second hand smoke has on infants and young children’s developing bodies can last a lifetime. Kids who grow up around a smoking parent are also three times more likely to take up smoking themselves.
When comparing e-liquids it’s important to understand the differences in ingredients they contain and how they are produced as this can have a big impact on the liquids flavour and quality. This is perhaps never truer than when looking at tobacco e-liquids.
We’ve pulled together some of our favourite/most annoying comments and quips that you should never to say to a vaper.
Correct vaping etiquette is seemingly always under discussion and not always agreed upon by vapers themselves. However, the basic rules we’ve outlined below are a good place to start.
Many of the simple vaping tricks are not new but have in fact been used by smokers for many years. The French Inhale and smoke rings are just two that have been picked up by vapers.

One of the things most vapers will have noticed if they pay any attention to the press coverage on vaping is that the big, attention grabbing, headlines tend to be pretty negative.
The list below covers approximately 70 of the most popular travel destinations. It is by no means exhaustive, however we do plan to keep adding countries as we get more information. Please use this guide as part of your research before travelling but also consult other sources to ensure you have a clear and full picture.
Back in 2015, Public Health England (PHE) released details of a review they had carried out into e-cigarettes. If you’re not sure what Public Health England is they’re a UK government-backed agency who, according to their website, “Exist to protect and improve the nation's health and well-being”. Although not directly responsible for UK policy on vaping they will certainly have a big input and influence on those that are.
Towards the end of February, many papers picked up on comments made by road safety officers working for the Sussex and Surrey police forces. The officers, quite rightly, stated if people are using e-cigarettes while driving and become distracted from the road due to vaping they could be liable to a fine.
