Blue Ox Vapor was started in 2014 in the Twin Cities of Minnesota, USA. We have strived to create the finest quality premium e-juice on the market by only using the finest USP Grade Kosher PG and VG and the purest nicotine available in the United States. Most of our flavors are complex in the fact that they use upwards of six different flavors to create the final product. We use a clean room to mix all of our batches in small quantities to ensure a more consistent flavor across multiple batches. Blue Ox Vapor is confident that you will enjoy your e-juice experience that we have created for you.
We are a family owned company that is still headquartered where we started in Minnesota. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments that you would like us to hear and thank you for your continued patronage!
Frequently Asked Questions
How does your juice differ from you’re competition?
We use only the finest ingredients in our e-liquid. We do not use extras, additives, or tobacco flavoring extracted from plants. The chemicals in tobacco plants are not present in our tobacco flavor lineup. We test every batch for quality assurance. Each flavor goes through a rigorous testing phase to ensure its quality and taste. Every liquid is free of diactyl.
Where can I sample you’re product locally before purchase?
We currently distribute to several locations in the greater Twin Cities area, in many stores. We are looking to expand further, even to out-of-state locations, very soon. Take a peek at our locate retailers section to find a location near you.
Why is there so much buzz or negative press surrounding e-cigarettes?
They aren’t well known and the studies that have been performed show them to be safer and effective. This confuses people that are unaware to the effect of e-cigarettes as they see it simply as smoking. They ask themselves; “How can smoking be good or healthy?”. Well the answer to that is, Vaporizing is not smoking. Much like breathing in evaporating water on a hot sunny day by the lake or ocean, vaporizing doesn’t ignite, but merely provides enough energy to convert a liquid to a gas. Some law-makers have agendas, as do some press. Sometimes a negative spin on something gains triple the amount of attention a positive spin on that same thing would have for an outcome.
Are e-cigs/e-liquid safe for us?
Many studies show that there is less harm from vaporizing, or being in contact with second hand vapor, than many things we are subject to being in contact with on a daily basis. Alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals, higher class drugs, vehicle exhaust, manufacturing fumes, and many more things are much worse for our bodies. However these are an excepted way of life. Many studies so far on e-cigs/e-liquid show that there is little to no harm from vaporizing. Nicotine is an addictive substance. This should not be taken lightly. However using an e-cig responsibly over smoking cigarettes is by far less risk of having the health issues related to smoking, based on the studies and the information available at this time.
How can e-liquid can be harmful?
E-liquid may or may not have a concentration of nicotine in it. Nicotine is what can cause adverse effects if not used as intended. If vaporized, the percentage of nicotine absorbed into the body can range from 20%-80% depending on how you vaporize. This means that if you vaporize 1 ml of 10mg/ml strength e-liquid. You may absorb 2-8 mg of that 1 ml. If you have e-liquid come into contact with skin or if swallowed/ ingested; the percentage of absorption can be much higher. This is why higher concentration e-liquid juice coming into contact with skin can cause irritations. Also why if swallowed can cause a person to become sick or very ill if enough is ingested. This is why e-liquid is only safe for use in e-cigs.
Do e-cigs really help you quit smoking?
Studies and testimonials have showed this to be true for some people, but not for all. Let’s however analyze the raw data that a smoker would experience from the transition. A smoker has two attractions to smoking cigarettes; physical and mental. The physical appeal of smoking something, and the mental attraction to the feeling or gratification. With e-cigs, you still have the physical appeal of holding something that feels like it smokes. Also the mental attraction of the nicotine absorption. E-cigs satisfy many areas that make people feel addicted to cigarettes. Also unlike cigarettes, you can control your nicotine intake and lower it as needed to completely rid yourself of the addiction to nicotine. While still keeping the appeal of something in your hand, and being able to feel like you are smoking. With e-cigs you can take as little or as much as you want. Whereas with a cigarette it is far more costly to “waste” if you are looking to quit all together.
