For first time buyers of e-juice, it might be confusing to choose among the many different flavors available including coffee, custard, chocolate, candy corn, vanilla and blueberry. These flavors are very tempting to try and each has a unique character but this is not the only reason why people are turning into vaping. The fact is that these unique flavors might have a different taste to them much like when buying a flavored product from one company which turns out to be better compared to another company’s product but carry the same flavor on the label.
There is no consistency when it comes to flavors of e-juice. Another problem currently faced by retailers is that there are legislations that might cause an end to the booming flavored e-juice sector. There is one thing that vaping consumers should take note, the experience alone cannot be changed because of the lack of flavors.
It is common for consumers to characterize flavor which is accomplished by combining additives, components and flavoring in order to provide the product a taste that can be distinguished from other brands or flavors. The flavor of a certain e-juice is commonly listed in their packaging. Aside from the common flavors, menthol and tobacco, the rest can be considered as characterizing flavor. The concern of many with these flavors is that they may have been created using various chemicals unless declared to be manufactured using natural substances.
In 2009, characterizing flavors were attempted to be introduced in traditional cigarettes but it was banned by the FDA. The decision was spearheaded by the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act which was designed to help the number of smoking consumers.
The FDA is already planning to perform the ban on e-juices but Commissioner Scott Gottlieb did not take any action yet. They are still waiting to see if the FDA can make a regulation with the new products instead especially if it will be proven as a safer alternative compared to smoking. One of the problems they are placing front and center is that flavored e-juice might encourage minors to try vaping. As of the moment, there is no evidence that points to the flavors as one of the reasons why minors are smoking.
