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

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.
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.
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.
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.)
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.
- 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
- 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?
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
ALL-NATURAL & ORGANIC
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
(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
(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.
(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.
(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:
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!
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.
This will produce a small vapor cloud, and a strong throat hit
(Best for top wicking clearomizers).
This will produce a small to moderate vapor cloud, and
above-moderate throat hit (Best for bottom wicking
This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate
This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate
This will produce a moderate vapor cloud, and moderate
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, 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.
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
