There has been many theories put forth by youthful and ignorant vapor as to why some juices are 50/50, 70/30, or pure VG. Those theories go from vapor production, flavor of juice and response to allergies to PG. Not one of these easily impressed upon by the first thing they hear young skulls full of mush ever has pointed out to me the physics of applying heat to the liquid.
The past quarter of production has seen leaps in the number of variable wattage mods and we all know it has been a marketing race for who has the most watts in their size package. We decided to put a wattage meter on some mechanicals and in the world of mechanicals it’s all about the battery. To get the wattage needed for High VG juice, low ohm coils coupled with surging amp batteries like the Sony VCT4. Pure VG is THICK and its properties require more heat to convert to gas than PG does. On our test mechanicals the best wattage we could get was just under 16 watts. This is what have observed at very bottom cut off for producing quick gas from VG.
Enter the world of Variable wattage mods and therefore the market gets to shift to a simpler and more flavorful juice mix with zero risk to allergic reactions. We have also found that is the race to be the biggest wattage output king there is a bit of let’s say less than calibrated displays. Also known as lying. Ringing up 40 watts on the display only brings up 30 watts on the meter. This has its own dangers as there will be another movement on the horizon since so many variable box mods are available.
Proper calibration of the displays will help when what the customer vapes changes. CBD seems to release best at above 19 -30watts. Nicotine itself doesn’t seem to start releasing until 15 watts and to get a full release of what you added to your liquid it’s around 35 watts above the capabilities of most tanks replaceable coils. We even tried the new Kanger Nickel coils for their new tank series and we will go over our disappointment of that coil in another article.
Adding vitamins to vape has been a topic as well as steroids. While there are weight lifters who would love to avoid the needle, there are also asthmatic people who have to inhale a steroid, although that type of inhaler is in a mist(liquid form) and there is problems with delivery in that form. The best way to describe the problems is like a car driving in the rain. While you feel the humidity the water doesn’t get through the vents. Same with inhaling liquid mist. The liquid doesn’t get into the small areas for delivery very efficiently. So asthma inhalers now have a dry powder. Drive through a dirt storm and your car is filled with dust. Vaping acts more like the “dry” delivery. This has been one of the big pushes from the Democratic Party which wants to apply a medical device tax to a device that is not “YET” being used as a medical device. Thus early control and regulation for future taxation has been the agenda.
While Vitamin B12 seems to deliver in vape at 8 -30 watt range other vitamins such as C and A will require high wattage and we haven’t found any company to sponsor such a deep research project but we are looking. It’s a highly involved review that requires Lots of blood tests. We foresee a review of this nature running $25,000 or more so while we want to know the truth money will prevent that research on what wattage would be required to effectively deliver vitamins and if that would be cost effective for anyone in the industry. With everyone knowing that buying vitamin pills is considered making expense bath room breaks because of the completely ineffective digestibility of most vitamins there would be huge market desire for an effective delivery.
I recently switched to using a pure vg flavor for my CBD oil, running small affordable Kangatech called the K-tech(part of the reviewing process as well) with one of the 7ml V2 tanks. While it lacks feature like a puff counter and cool LED display. It has become the most affordable vape setup for someone who would be serious about substance control on delivery.
I can foresee adding Bluetooth the devices linking to an app that would send a daily update via the internet to the user and/or doctors who want to monitor their patients. The vaping industry is leading the way. In fact our company owns all the server side technology to deliver this information. Device updates and upload to the server for processing is all that is lacking.
