ECBLEND TESTING

FOR

DIKETONES

Do you use diacytel?

No. ECBlend does not use Diacytel in any of it’s facilities. As a certified

member of AEMSA (American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association)

and ECBlend company policy, ECBlend uses a third-party lab to test it’s

products for diacetyl and acetyl propionyl (chemicals used in the flavoring

industry to produce a creamy, buttery and custard flavor). Diacetyl is present in

cigarettes. We perform these tests to confirm our products are in compliance with

AEMSA standards for diketones. In addition to our third-party testing procedures,

all raw flavorings from our flavor vendors are required to be certified and tested.

ECBLEND, FDA FINAL RULES & REGISTRATION

FDA Registered:

ECBlend has registered its manufacturing facilities and products with the FDA

and is subject to it’s regulations for manufacturing.

ON MAY 10 2016,

the FDA released their finalized rule: From the FDA website:

“In 2016, FDA finalized a rule extending our regulatory authority to cover all

tobacco products, including vaporizers, vape pens, hookah pens, electronic

cigarettes (E-Cigarettes), e-pipes, and all other ENDS. FDA now regulates the

manufacture, import, packaging, labeling, advertising, promotion, sale, and

distribution of ENDS. This includes components and parts of ENDS* but

excludes accessories.” (ENDS: Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems)

Why is the FDA regulating vaping nicotine products as if they

are tobacco products?

The TCA defines ‘tobacco product’ as meaning

‘any product made or derived from tobacco that is intended for human

consumption’ –

The nicotine in e-liquids is ‘derived’ from tobacco.

Health debate:

The growing use of e-cigarettes has sharply divided health

experts. The central question is whether they help people stop smoking.

According to the British Medical Group “Health experts in Britain have decided

that they are effective in helping people quit, and have urged smokers there

to switch to them.” American experts have been more cautious, warning that

e-cigarette use may eventually result in young people moving from vaping to

traditional cigarettes. But smoking rates for youth have declined since the

devices were introduced in the mid-2000s, and some experts say that is proof

enough that the fears — at least for now — have not come to pass.

SFATA quote:

In a press release over the issue of the FDA final rules the

Smoke-Free Alternatives Trade Association (SFATA) writes “Since a growing

body of scientific evidence confirm that vapor products are more than 95 percent

less harmful than combustible cigarettes, it is essential that Congressional

action be taken so vapor products can remain on the market as highly effective

replacement tools for smokers.”

AAPHP quote:

The American Association of Public Health Physicians

(AAPHP) supports the use of electronic cigarettes as a reduced harm tobacco

product. The AAPHP released a statement that electronic cigarettes “could save

the lives of 4 million of the 8 million current adult American smokers who will

otherwise die of a tobacco-related illness over the next 20 years.”

TROUBLESHOOTING:

STEEPING · TASTE · COLOR · VAPER’S TONGUE · BURNT FLAVOR ·

CHEMICAL TASTE · PERFUMEY · PEPPERY

Flavors taste better when steeped:

ECBlend creates your custom e-liquid at the time you order it. Although most of

our e-liquids taste great as soon as you receive them, flavors blend and marry fully

over time... so you will have a richer, deeper, and more flavorful product after a few

days or weeks of steeping. This is especially true of tobacco flavors, larger bottle

sizes and generally true for all e-liquid. Let your e-liquids sit for a few days or a week

before vaping and you will find yourself with some

very flavorful e-liquid

.

For best steeping results -

Store e-liquid in a cool dark place (in a safe place

AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS) and shake daily. (Steeping is a personal

taste preference and can be from 2 days up to 3 weeks.)

Flavor carriers -

PG is a better flavor carrier than VG and requires less

steeping. The higher the VG content, the better it will taste with steeping.

IN A HURRY FOR YOUR E-LIQUID?

Try this - Seal the bottle tightly and air free in a zip lock

bag. Place the bottle in hot tap (not boiling) water for

10-15 minutes. This will allow for better mixing when

shaking. This process can be repeated as much as

needed to completely blend your e-liquid.

BURNT

or

PEPPERY TASTE -

Always keep your wicks wet!

Dry wicking material can give a burnt taste and lower the lifetime of your device.

A peppery taste is also a sign that the juice needs to steep longer, or you are

getting a small amount of e-liquid in your mouth.

CHEMICAL

or

PERFUMEY TASTE -

Some flavors have a strong scent to them,

this is usually eliminated with steeping. If the perfumey taste is still present after

steeping, the flavor may need some extra steeping to ‘breathe.’ Store in a cool dark

place (AWAY FROM CHILDREN AND PETS) to steep for additional time.

COLOR -

Your e-liquid is still good if it changes color! There is no dye or artificial

coloring in our e-liquids. Over time, nicotine and other ingredients in the blend may

change the color of your e-liquid to a light amberish or brownish color after the flavor

blend develops and intensifies and after being exposed to air, light or heat. This is

normal! Our popular RY4 blend starts off clear, then turns into a deep-reddish amber

over time. Some flavors have a natural color. (There is no scientific information

study that we know of, however, many people feel that darker colors can lower the

life expectancy of a wick.)

VAPER’S TONGUE?

[bySteveKryworuka]

Whether you are a newbie or a seasoned vaper, there will be a moment when you

realize you can’t taste your vapor. When you take a nice puff and notice... nothing.

There’s plenty of vapor, but you just can’t taste it.

This is called “vaper’s tongue”

There’s no reason to panic! Your taste buds just decided to pack up and go on

vacation for a while. It’s not a medical issue and it’s not permanent. New and

veteran vapers experience the same thing. Some people frequently experience

this even after vaping for months or years.

Giving up cigarettes

- Smoking ruins your sense of taste. Once you stop

smoking cigarettes, your tastebuds must become reacquainted with normal taste

sensations. The ability to taste things slowly awakens after a lengthy slumber.

These new sensations can overload your sense of taste and eventually, all the

stimulation becomes a little too much and your brain elects to close up shop for a

little while to let your taste regroup. Gradually, you’ll just realize at some point the

flavor has returned all on its own.

Dehydration

- Vaping will dehydrate you. Vapor actually absorbs the moisture

in the surrounding air. Your mouth contains a lot of moisture, which the vapor will

suck up like a sponge. The result of this action is a dry mouth. Simply increase

your water intake while you vape. If you find there is quite a bit of film built up

on your tongue, you can scrape it off with your toothbrush. It’s kind of a weird

sensation, and if your family sees you, you might get funny looks, but it’s quite

effective at removing any buildup in your mouth.

The same ol’ - same ol’

- Have an all-day vape and put out more white clouds

than the Polar Express? This could also be the source of your missing flavor.

Constant exposure to the exact same flavor sensation can also cause your sense

of taste to hit the high road. This happens when you’re so frequently exposed to

the same flavor that your brain treats that flavor sort of like the taste equivalent of

white noise. Try to find two or three other flavors to swap between to keep things

fresh.

Being sick

- If you have the flu or a cold, chances are your sinuses are good and

stuffed up. Your sense of smell is tightly integrated into your sense of taste. When

you are unable to smell effectively, it generally also means your sense of taste is

equally dulled. Since there is still no cure for the common cold, your best bet to

beat this one is some chicken soup and a comfy blanket.

For no reason at all

- These are the times that are probably the most

frustrating. Nothing is wrong as far as you can tell, your normal flavors just aren’t

doing it for you. Drink plenty of liquids, try other flavors and wait it out.

Eventually, the flavor will return.

WHAT’S IN ECBLEND E-LIQUID?

FLAVORING:

We use only the

finest food grade natural and artificial

flavorings from some of the best flavoring

manufacturers in the world who are very

well-known for product quality.

Our flavorings are all water-soluble and

we do not use essential oils in any of our

flavorings.

Our

ALL-NATURAL & ORGANIC

line

of e-liquids use water-soluble flavorings

that are Certified Organic, All-Natural, Kosher, Vegan, Gluten Free, and contain No

Allergens. These flavors have no nutritional value as used in this application and

are calorie, carb, and sugar free.

WARNING: Grocery store flavoring is not recommended for e-liquid

as those products may contain chemicals not intended for vaping

NICOTINE:

(When ordered) Our nicotine is USP pharmaceutical grade.

All raw materials undergo a rigorous inspection and testing process concluding

with certification by an accredited 3rd party laboratory. We receive and examine

these reports, then further test in house twice: One automated and one manually

tested by our Lab Manager who is an ACS Certified Chemist. These results are

compared to the third-party certification received. Results are batched and all

nicotine is tracked and documented to every bottle of e-liquid produced.

NICOTINE SENSITIVITY: If you have a demonstrated allergy or

sensitivity to nicotine or any combination of inhalants, consult your

physician before using this product

MENTHOL:

(When ordered) Meets USP and FCC specifications and is

KOSHER CERTIFIED -

ECBlend’s menthol crystals are carefully crafted and are

a 100% pure natural product that originates from mint extraction. Our menthol is

easily combined into recipes and the best part is that our menthol is organic and

contains no additives.

SWEETENER:

(When ordered) Our sweetener is 99.9% pure (with remaining

% being moisture) Ethyl maltol is a flavor enhancer that is safe, non-toxic, and

highly used. It is used as a flavor agent in tobacco, food, beverages, essence,

wine, chocolates, candy, desserts, soda, ice cream, daily-use cosmetics, vanilla,

fruit flavored drinks, medicines and more. Discovered in the 1970’s, Ethyl maltol

was originally isolated from larch tree bark and is produced through

fermentation-organic synthesis. Ethyl maltol occurs naturally in cereal, bread crust,

coffee, and cocoa. This substance is also used as a flavor enhancer because it

tends to mask bad tasting chemicals, and heightens richness and creaminess. It

also has a pleasant odor when vaping.

COOL HIT

®

:

(When ordered) ECBlend’s Cool Hit

®

is a proprietary blend of

artificial flavorings that give the cooling effect of menthol, without the minty taste.

This item has no taste or odor when vaped.

THE BEST PG AND VG:

(“

base

mix

”)

PG:

We use only the best 99.7% pure (with the remaining 0.3% being water) USP

Food Grade Kosher Propylene Glycol (PG). Propylene glycol is approved for human

consumption by the FDAand approved for human inhalation by the EPA. It’s used

in fog machines, air purifiers in hospitals, humidifiers, aromatherapy and other

inhalation devices. It is a common ingredient in many foods and medicines, such

as store imitation food flavoring, toothpaste, cough syrup, hand sanitizer, lotions,

cosmetics and more.

Grocery store flavoring is not recommended for e-liquid!

VG:

Our VG is 99.7% (with the remaining 0.3% being water) food-grade

palm-derived Vegetable Glycerin (VG). There are no animal by-products in either

our PG or VG. It has a sweet taste, but is metabolized differently than sugar and

does not contribute to bacterial tooth decay. Because it is derived entirely from

palm sources and pure, it is hypoallergenic and contains no soy as is found in other

sources of VG.

UNDERSTANDING BASE MIX

The more PG in the base mix will make the liquid thinner, and will produce more

throat hit and less vapor. The more VG in the base mix will make the liquid thicker,

throat hit will be smoother, and the vapor produced will be much greater.

BASE MIX: THROAT HIT & VAPOR

PG is a better flavor carrier than VG and requires less steeping. The higher the VG content,

the better it will taste with steeping.

100% PG 100% PG, It’s all PG - there is no VG in the bottle. Produces

little to no vapor, and a strong throat hit.

80%

PG

/ 20%

VG

This will produce a small vapor cloud, and a strong throat hit

(Best for top wicking clearomizers).

70%

PG

/ 30%

VG

This will produce a small to moderate vapor cloud, and

above-moderate throat hit (Best for bottom wicking

clearomizers).

60%

PG

/ 40%

VG

This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate

throat hit.

50%

PG

/ 50%

VG

This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate

throat hit.

40%

PG

/ 60%

VG

This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate

throat hit.

MAX VG

(Reduced PG)

This will produce little to no throat hit, and clouds of vapor.

Flavoring is PG-based, and the remainder is filled with VG and

VG-based nicotine when ordered.

100% VG

100% VG, It’s all VG - there is no PG in the bottle. This will

produce volumes (clouds) of vapor and little to no throat hit.

“Extra Flavor” option is recommended with 100% VG.

THROAT HIT:

Will change based on your device & nicotine

concentration. Using a lower resistance with your device will also

increase the throat hit. A variable wattage (or a temperature control)

device will allow you to vape at higher temperatures.

ADDING MENTHOL ALSO INCREASES THROAT HIT
