4 Things You Didn’t Know About Mt Baker Vapor

Mt Baker Vapor has grown immensely since our humble beginnings as a two-person e liquid operation. The company now spans two states, over 100 employees, and 1.5 million shipped orders. But this company is far more than an online vape shop. In today’s blog, we’re introducing you to some of MBV’s lesser-known features.

1. Our Endorsements Program

Most loyal MBV customers knows about our partnership with the band GWAR, but Mt Baker Vapor teams up with plenty of other talented artists as well:

Randy Blythe – Lamb of God

And so finally the sad day has come- it's time for me to quit smoking cigarettes. I'm 42- I've given up drinking, I don't do drugs, I don't gamble, I'm not involved in any sort of weird religious/anti-religious cult- hell, I'm not even a sexual "deviant"- I'm straight, married, & not into pee-pee or anything weird like that. I am turning into a SQUARE. All I have left is coffee & cigarettes, & the cigs are gonna kill me (plus I sing for a living- I kinda need my throat & lungs). So I have decided to quit smoking, but I need some sort of vice, dammit, or I will strangle someone. My brother quit using the e-cig, so I talked to Beefcake the Mighty of GWAR & he got me an e-cig endorsement/sponsor w/@mtbakervapor out of Washington state-they sent me this crazy-ass contraption I am holding- an i-Taste 134 vaporizer/e-cig. It's modeled after the M134 machine gun & it's freaking AWESOME. I have been using this thing for a few days & I have cut my cigs to 1/4 of what I was smoking (pack & a half a day) without even trying. My buddy Ralph from Steel Panther saw it & said "That thing is a nicotine lightsabre"- it's working too! Mt. Baker sent me a TON of stuff- me & Beefcake are gonna develop our own e-juice flavors for them. This stuff has GOT to be less harmful for you than smoking tobacco- I just can't do it anymore. So pray /send good energy for me- I want to be done smoking soon- I'm posting this to help hold myself accountable- if you see me smoking a real cigarette, by all means please give me a LOAD of shit. Thanks to @mtbakervapor for the gear & flavors- me & Beefcake will be developing ours this year! #smokingsucks #gottaquit #mtbakervapor

2. We Get Involved With Vaping Advocacy

The vaping industry is currently facing our greatest threat yet with the release of the FDA’s Deeming Regulations. As stated in our official response to these regulations, Mt Baker Vapor is committed to doing everything possible to use our position to ensure that the vaping industry stays accessible to our loyal customers.

We are active members of the Right 2 Be Smoke-Free Coalition, an industry-led trade association of vaping businesses dedicated to promoting the interests of the industry by advocating for reasonable and responsible laws and regulations. Since the R2BSFC will be spearheading industry efforts against the FDA Deeming Regulations, we have made it a priority to educate our customers on their work. Every order from Mt Baker Vapor now includes the following advocacy flyer:

Providing education on vaping rights is not a new thing for MBV. Our vaping advocacy archive has a wealth of information regarding the battles that the vaping industry is currently facing, as well as directions on how to let your voice be heard. Wondering what the best course of action is right now? Along with joining R2BSF, we highly recommend contacting your elected representatives to tell them you support HR2058.

3. Some of the Best Flavors Are Happy Little Accidents

It’s no secret that the vaping industry is all about one thing: flavor. Everyone is looking for the holy grail ADV that makes you completely rethink everything you thought you knew about e liquid. Keeping this in mind, Mt Baker Vapor contributes sizable resources to staying on the cutting edge of flavor design. We have our flavor scientists working overtime every day to come up with ingenious new ideas. It looks a bit like this:

sm-Science-of-Vaping

Of course, sometimes the best inventions are purely accidental. We have a number of flavors that weren’t the result of the application of the rigorous scientific method. The following flavors were pure mishaps:

Hawk Sauce

Review from MBV Customer Colbert F: “I would consistently breathe hawk sauce more than I breathe regular air if only my batteries didn’t die.”

Forestberry Fusion

Review from MBV Customer Christine H: “(W)hen steeped for 3-4 weeks is like vaping a bowl of perfectly ripened sweet wild berries picked directly from berry bushes on a hiking trail.”

Honey Berries

Review from MBV Customer Dean S: “This berry blend is light, sweet and delicious! It’s just right! So many of the berry flavors out on the market are too much or too sweet or just plain gross, NOT this juice! It’s the perfect harmony of fruity sweetness AND SO much less expensive than the rest! If you like sweet and fruity, this is perfect!”

Tobacc-O-Yeah

Review from MBV Customer Todd M: “This is the tobacco flavor I’ve been waiting for from MBV. I’m strictly a tobacco flavor vaper and found this very toasty, caramel, even butterscotch but very mild. It smells like a new pack of cigarettes.”

Wacky Taffy

Review from MBV Customer Lisa M: “Can’t remember, feel like I already reviewed this but here it goes, I LOVE wacky taffy it is my favorite from MBV! It has DEEP, sweet, fruity flavor. On the inhale, it’s sweet, kaleidoscope of fruits with pear and blackberry standing out to me. On the exhale, taffy, like when I was a kid! Upon steeping it only gets better.”

4. Our Mascot is a Glorious Great Dane

While Summit has a tendency to dwarf smaller dogs (and even some small humans) she actually happens to be the runt of her litter. Her hobbies include: not wanting to wake up for work in the morning, napping, tearing apart cardboard, squeaking toys, barking, and producing the most eloquent Q&A blog in the world of vaping.
