Many people enjoy vaping as an alternative to smoking, but recent news stories may have you wondering about the safety of your vape juice. While it might seem like all vape juice is the same quality, that’s unfortunately not the case. Vape juices found in smoke shops or online can vary drastically in quality, with some brands containing ingredients linked to health issues.
Since there are so many variances in quality available, it can be difficult to distinguish a premium, safe e-liquid from an unsafe one. This is especially true if you’re new to vaping. So, how do you know what to look for in a safe vape juice? Here are a few tips:
Buy from a Reputable Company
Finding a reputable company should be your top priority when searching for a safe vape juice. Look for a company that’s U.S. based and licensed the FDA, like Blue Dot Vapors. Tobacco products are highly regulated in the U.S., with extensive state and federal government oversight. Companies with an FDA license undergo rigorous inspection to receive their licensing. However, not all countries have such strict standards regarding tobacco, which puts you at risk of purchasing a low-quality or unsafe vape juice.
For any product you ingest, inhale, or apply, transparency is essential. A reputable company will provide a detailed ingredient list of everything that’s in your vape juice. They should also be transparent about where they source their ingredients and the manufacturing process.
High Manufacturing Standards
Reputable vape juice companies are committed to providing their customers with the highest quality product possible. This can only be achieved by following Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), which is heavily regulated by the FDA. GMP is a system that ensures products are consistently produced and controlled according to FDA guidelines and quality standards. Safe vape juice will be manufactured in a clean room with filtration to eliminate particulates in the environment, similar to cosmetic or computer component manufacturing practices.
A reputable company will perform batch testing on all products they produce to ensure quality, consistency, purity, and concentration.
Diacetyl is an organic compound that’s used to give some vape juices a buttery flavor. While it’s been deemed safe for human consumption, it’s not safe to inhale. Inhalation of diacetyl has been linked to bronchiolitis obliterans, commonly called popcorn lung.
