E-Cigarettes Now Regulated as Medicine in UK

Vapor Products Regulated As Medicine in UK The United Kingdom’s regulator for medicinal items, the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) has officially classified electronic cigarettes as medical devices. This is the step taken in an effort to what may become the official marketing of electronic cigarette devices as cessation devices. This is very big news for the vapor products industry, and while it is not fully relevant to the US market, it is a major step for the industry as a whole, and it sets an incredible example the US needs to take note of.

Prior to this landmark decision on the part of MHRA, vapor products were not permitted to be recommended by general practitioners as they were not considered licensed products. Because of this monumental decision, vapor products will now be able to truly compete with established cessation methods in the UK, such as nicotine gums and nicotine patches, and physicians as well as other healthcare providers will be able to recommend them for usage.

This is an excellent example being demonstrated as a model for nations such as the US, whose own policies and politics regarding e-cigarettes are not yet established. Across the pond, we are currently awaiting the FDA to make a final decision on the ability of today’s e-cigarettes to even continue being sold.

The health agencies in the UK have been staunch and stubborn in regards to their opinions of e-cigarettes, and they have seen the potential they hold for quite some time now. Last year, Public Health England’s report on e-cigarette use, and their independent findings that vapor cigarettes are 95% healthier than traditional tobacco cigarettes made worldwide headlines, having come from a legitimate source making such a bold claim. The UK has been blatantly vocal about the promise these products hold for people looking to quit smoking, and with 20% of the British adult population as smokers, they are truly committed to their betterment and health.

We applaud the UK on their decision, which we know was based on a great amount of research, studies, and common sense. We are excited to see where the market is headed, and look forward to what these revolutionary products are going to do for the public health sector in the near future.

Why USA-Made E-Liquids Are the Best

American Made E-LiquidsWhen it comes to e-liquids, for all of our brands we are staunchly all about the USA. While manufacturing of other items is done with great precision abroad, when it comes to nicotine e-liquids, specifically intended for the American market, USA made juices is the best way to go. Here is a look at why American-made liquids are the only way we’ll do it.

-Freshness: American-made e-liquids are able to reach the customer in a shorter amount of time, enabling a fresher product from manufacturing through shipping and usage.

Better Tasting: American made nicotine juice has a reputation for tasting better, and it is well-deserved. Fresher liquids taste better, because they have not been sitting in crates crossing the oceans, nor are they unintentionally steeping as they wait through weeks of lines in Customs. More direct from production to the customer means a fresher, better-tasting product.

-Standards: America is a pretty strict place when it comes to manufacturing, and there is a higher level of quality associated with items produced here, as opposed to elsewhere overseas.

Quality Control: Due to the higher standards, the various methods of quality control and monitoring are of an elevated, compared to most places abroad. Many consumers feel safer using products, especially when concerning unregulated nicotine e-liquid products, that have been manufactured here in the US.

-Shorter Shipment Time: Being created in America means a faster amount of time between production and reaching the customer, as well as, a shorter time in transit from the manufacturing plant to the distributer and/ or customer. Faster means fresher in this industry.

-No Waiting on Customs: When products are coming in from overseas, due to enhanced security nowadays, shipments can get tied up in customs for unspecified amounts of time. This means no guarantees on how long it will take to get the products ourselves, or be able to sell them. This can equate to lost profits.

American made nicotine e-liquids are the best; no getting around it! While they may be costlier, when it comes to standards, we don’t play around! If you’re looking for the best wholesale e-liquids available, guaranteed made in the USA, contact us about working with our innovative brands!

Spotlight on VaporFi

VaporFi RDA Vox II Here is an in-depth look at VaporFi. As one of the most innovative names in the business, and hands-down the most exciting name in the e-cig industry, this brand is a force to be reckoned with! So, what are they up to these days? Here’s a glimpse!

Ground Expansion

VaporFi has become one of the hottest names in the industry when it comes to vape shop retail locations. These stores have become legitimate hubs in the areas they are located in, and they are the very best. There are 36 stores currently open or about to! The vape communities these shops serve adore the locations, and love that an option this classy and full-scale finally exists. In areas where there are no VaporFi’s, there is an increasing demand, and we could not be more excited about this brand’s continuous expansion through VaporFi franchising. It’s a great time to be in this industry!

Advanced Vaporizers & Mods

Always developing the line further, vapers are always looking for what this brand unveils next. Bridging the gap between smoking and technology, users want advanced, user-friendly, state-of-the-art, up to the minute vape gear, and we are more than happy to bring it to the table.

Reserve Collection

Seeing how the community is continuously advancing, and their tastes are becoming more refined, as well as in addition to the onset of the popularity of the “steeping” method of enhancing flavors, the Reserve Collection of fine e-liquids from VaporFi could not have launched any sooner.

Accessability

VaporFi has brought vaping, and all varieties of advanced vaping to the mainstream, giving users more ability to try new things and experience what higher levels. Previously, finding the most advanced products that were also of the highest quality was not the easiest endeavor, but VaporFi fills the void, and the vaping world is on high alert for everything they put out.

What to Know Before Embarking on an E-Cigarette Startup

e-cigarette startup infoIf you are looking to open up an e-cigarette retail venture or are in the process of implementing electronic cigarettes into your inventory, here is some useful info that can help you along the way. As one of the fastest growing niche markets out there, electronic cigarettes are an excellent entrepreneurial direction. Here are some of the basics to help you along the way with your e-cigarette startup.

Whether you’re opening your own store, adding select brands to your current location, or are going the franchise route with a brand such as VaporFi, the options are very much limitless. So limitless in fact, it can seem rather overwhelming to find the most reputable companies to work with amongst the masses.

Step One: Research

When researching brands to potentially work with, you want to research their history and reputation extensively and thoroughly. Check with the better Business Bureau, to see what kind of information has been provided. It’s also smart to contact the company yourself, via email and/or calling, to get a feel for how they present themselves. Professionalism, courtesy, a high level of customer service, and absolute knowledge on the products and company are especially important factors.

Step Two: Research Products.

Finding a brand that resonates and correlates to your business is essential, however just as important are the products they sell. In the e-cigarette market there is such a large variety of different products with an incredible range of quality. How marketable these products are, and how much customer demand there is are things to keep in mind. Key items to have in a brand: USA made liquids, a wide variety of e-cigarette styles, and a large selection of flavors and nicotine strengths.

One key factor in distinguishing brand worth carrying, is how forthcoming they are about their ingredients. Any brand that is not straightforward or enthusiastic about what’s in there of the liquids, should be automatically be a no-go. More and more users are discerning about their products, and most know that quality comes from using the very best standards, ingredients, and ratios. Users are looking for performance, and safety so brand’s that are disclosing what they’re using are more likely to attract customers.

Creating a professional relationship with a brand is an obviously big decision, don’t jump in headfirst without some background info. For startup  e-cigarette retail ventures, we can’t recommend our brand VaporFi enough. Offering a wide variety of different options for vapor cig franchising, this brand’s solid reputation for top-of-the-line quality and selection has attracted customers all over the world. If you’d like to know more about working with IVG, in a business-to-business relationship, feel free to contact us to get the ball rolling.

Why IVG? Quality is Our Foundation

Wholesale Quality E-CigarettesOne of the more astounding generalizations of the e-cigarette industry is the concept of quality. For those on the outside looking in, as well as for beginners, choosing a random brand, found at a gas station or convenience store, at the lowest price is typically not the best point of entry into the world of vaping. Now, I’m not attempting to say that users should jump in and grab the most expensive mod they can get their hands on right from the start, all in the name of quality, however there are some things to keep in mind.

Quality: It’s not just a selling point; it’s the selling point. It can make or break the experience, and can leave a user satisfied enough that they feel confident switching to vapor. A bad vape can do the opposite, and make them turn away in disgust. It is our aim to satisfy the user, delight them with our options, and inspire them with the possibilities.

When customers purchase from any of our companies, they are getting the best of the best liquids, all created in the USA, and under the strictest standards available. We wouldn’t have our liquids for VaporFi and South Beach Smoke on file with the FDA otherwise. Our products include the highest-performing, top of the line vaporizers and e-cigarettes. Our customer service is continuously revered for its genuineness as well as thoroughness. When you work with our brand for electronic cigarette wholesaling, you are getting a full-on, dedicated brand.

So, think about it. You pay for what you get. Yes, there are certainly products on the lower tier that will cost less than those made by International Vapor Group. However, consider that you are getting solid quality, top shelf variety, and expertise from a reputable name that has stood the test of time in this ever-changing industry. Seriously, you wouldn’t expect farm-to-table, grass-fed organic beef burgers at your local $1 order menu fast food joint, would you? Different options, from different companies; wholesale e-cigs and e-liquids are no different from any other industry in this matter. There are tons of choices out there, and not all are equal. The IVG difference is what sets us apart.

When it comes to research and development, no one tops IVG.

Vape Community & Social Media

social media and electronic cigarettesOne of the most interesting aspects of the popularity of electronic cigarettes is how this community has been built online, and particularly through social media. As these products highlight the age of digital everything; from fitness to fashion, socializing to smoking, it is indicative of the times we live in. Vaping and social media work exceptionally well together, and this sense of community, camaraderie, and exchange of info has contributed much to the usage of these incredible products!

In so many ways social media can be both a blessing and a curse. It can equally inspire motivation as well as envy, while having the ability to reach millions. Daily, across the planet, social media platforms in all their forms, assist with marketing efforts, personal reach, all the while enabling people to think outside of their preconceived notions.

When it comes to electronics cigarettes, the social media world has been very much a great thing. It has connected vapers worldwide, opening minds up to the endless options, while allowing them to share their experiences with people who are in the same boat. Because this is a niche market, it can be hard to find people in your daily life or local sphere who are also up on the latest vape technology and have first-hand experience. Being able to chat with others who are into the same thing and also experimenting and delving into the market gives you first hand experience to draw from.

Whether it’s connecting with specific brands or social groups on Facebook, connecting experienced users who have instructionals on YouTube, connecting with users on Instagram to check out cool user photos, or following companies on Twitter, there is so much going on within social media when it comes to the e-cigarette & vaporizer community. It has benefited the industry tremendously, propelling it into the lives of many in ways traditional advertising could not. In fact it can be said that this industry would not be where it is without the ability of social media, for how it has fueled the usefulness of these products into the hands and minds of inquiring smokers worldwide.
