I started vaping about two and a half years ago. Like many, I started with store-bought cigalikes. Primarily, the use of Cartomizers (although I didn’t know that term at the time) was my only exposure to the industry. After I was hired at Mt. Baker Vapor, my knowledge rapidly grew, and I moved on to clearomizers. When I first made the switch to a tank, my mind was blown. It was a ‘Holy Crap!

We must steel ourselves for the onset of a dismal, merciless season. Your fingers will sting and turn all pink. Those of us with beards will sport frozen chandeliers of pain.

An ironic statement considering no one really knows everything that’s used in cigarettes, yet I’m sure the majority of us went right on inhaling that, even though we knew it was incredibly unhealthy.

Fortunately, there are a few things you can do to prevent this experience from occurring.
Hey Vape Fans! Today I’d like to talk about an issue that I am asked about all the time; “What nicotine strength should I use once I have decided to switch from smoking cigarettes to vaping? And when do I start to wean myself off to a lower strength?”
This might be a silly blog this week, considering it seems like common sense, but what we, here at Mt Baker Vapor have been seeing in the news has been fairly concerning. So today we will be going over how to properly pack your electronic cigarette or mod or whatever device you may be using for travel. Traveling with an e-cig can be tricky. Let’s go over it.
Do you hate vaping? Whether someone chooses to vape is a personal decision. It could be a method for quitting smoking, a way to relieve stress, or a substitute for high calorie foods that can satisfy their sweet tooth.
