Safety Commission Poised for New Authority over Certain Nicotine Products  

Six months, or 180 days. That’s how long manufacturers and importers of liquid nicotine refill containers have to comply with the new law – or answer to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). Known as the “Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act,” the new law was signed Jan. 28, mandating child-resistant packaging for certain liquid nicotine products.

The CPSC is the same entity behind the enforcement of child-resistant packaging on prescription drugs, select over-the-counter medications, cleaning chemicals and other potentially hazardous substances found around the home.

Where the New Law Applies

The Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention act specifically applies to what are being called “liquid nicotine containers” that meet certain criteria. The definition extends to include any package that:

  • Holds nicotine in a solution or other form
  • Allows access to the contents if used by a consumer in a customary and normal manner
  • Holds soluble nicotine in any concentration

The definition clearly applies to vaping liquid that contains nicotine and is designated for use in open-system electronic vaping devices. Open-system vaping devices refer to those in which vaping liquid can be freely added and the devices taken apart to do so.

The law does not, however, cover every type of nicotine or vaping liquid on the market.

Where the New Law Doesn’t Apply

Two important exceptions to the new law should be noted. A rapidly growing vaping segment is opting for vaping liquid that contains zero nicotine. Vaping liquids with zero nicotine content are not covered by the new law’s definition.

The definition additionally leaves out closed-system electronic cigarettes, which refer to devices that are not meant to be opened, taken apart or refilled. Such devices typically consist of the disposable e-cigarettes sold at gas stations and convenience stores, also known as “cigalikes.”

To make it clear, special packaging regulations do not apply to:

  • Sealed, pre-filled and disposable nicotine containers
  • Nicotine containers designed to be inserted directly into e-cigs, electronic nicotine delivery systems or similar products
  • Items that don’t allow access to the contents through expected or normal use or handling, which includes “reasonably foreseeable” contact or ingestion by children 

Poison Packaging Prevention Act

The Poison Packaging Prevention Act (PPPA) has been in place since its passage in 1970, and this same act will be governing the child-resistant packaging required for applicable e-liquid nicotine products.

Overseen by the CPSC, the PPPA requires potentially hazardous household chemicals and substances to have packaging that is extremely difficult for children under age 5 to open and access its contents within a reasonable amount of time.

Child-Resistant Testing

Stringent testing procedures have been adopted to ensure packaging meets PPPA requirements. Test subjects must include at least one panel of 50 children as well as a total of 100 adults between the ages of 50 and 70 years old.

Packaging passes muster if at least 80 percent of the children are unable to open the packaging after attempting to do so for 10 minutes – and 90 percent of the adults are able to open it within five minutes. Once adults have figured out how the packaging works, the packaging undergoes another test where adults have one minute to open and then close the packaging, putting its child-resistant features back in place.

Proof of Compliance

Importers and manufacturers of items that require special child-resistant packaging must:

  • Issue certificates of conformity that indicate products adhere to packaging requirements
  • Furnish compliance certificates as need to retailers and distributors
  • Make compliance certificates available to CPSC and US Customs and Border Protection upon request as outlined by the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act

Widespread Support

In addition to being unanimously approved by the Senate Commission, passed by Congress and signed by the President into law, the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act enjoys widespread support from health organizations, consumer advocates, and the vaping industry. Many states already have child-proof packaging regulations in place, and the new law expands the regulations at the federal level.

Many vaping liquid manufacturers have also already been using child-resistant packaging, which has been a requirement for members of the American E-Liquid Manufacturing Standards Association trade group since 2012.

What is E-Juice?

E-juice, also known as e-liquid or vaping liquid, is the liquid that’s placed in the vaping device and subsequently atomized into vapor. When you go to buy e-juice, you’ll notice it contains a mix of several ingredients. These typically include vegetable glycerin (VG), propylene glycol (PG), some type of flavoring, and nicotine.

VG and PG form the base of the e-liquid. VG is a component used in food and personal care products; its role in e-liquid is to create a thick, dense vapor. PG is another popular solvent used in a variety of everyday items. It carries the e-liquid flavor, provides the “throat hit,” and enhances the vaping liquid’s ability to soak into wicks or cartomizer materials.

Nicotine is an optional ingredient, often available in different levels. E-juice also contains some type of flavoring.

Black Note leads the pack of tobacco vaping liquid by using only natural flavoring – extract from real tobacco leaves to produce real tobacco taste. When you go to buy e-juice from other companies, you may find any number of chemicals used to create synthetic flavors that include fake strawberry, manufactured vanilla, and even man-made tobacco flavors.

If your aim when you buy e-liquid is to experience the subtle nuances, genuine flair and authentic taste of real tobacco, then you’ll be on the mark if you buy e-juice from the Black Note lineup.

Best E-Juice

When you’re going to buy e-liquid, it’s only natural you’ll want the best e-liquid. But what, exactly, does it “best e-juice” mean? We’ll tell you.

For starters, you’ll want an e-juice that doesn’t contain all kinds of strange chemicals and concoctions that you can’t even pronounce. True, even the best e-liquid will contain vegetable glycerin (VG) and proplene glycol (PG), which serve as the base of e-juice, but you don’t necessarily need a host of other chemical compounds.

The best e-juice will stick to natural ingredients, like real tobacco extract, rather than rely on synthetic flavorings, colorings and other additives. Diacetyl is one of those synthetic ingredients that has gotten a pretty bad rap, although its use is not all that uncommon for producing sweet e juice flavors.

Definitely read the ingredient list before you buy e-juice to ensure you recognize what’s on it. Better yet, see if the e-juice company offers a lab report to confirm what’s actually inside the e-liquid.

In addition to having as few chemical ingredients as possible, the best e-juice will have an amazing taste. For those who enjoy authenticity over imitation, the most amazing taste is the most natural taste, especially when it comes to tobacco. Since Black Note uses real extract from tobacco leaves, we not only avoid all those weird chemical flavorings, but we also produce the most authentic experience: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like tobacco.

Best E-Liquid on the Market

Anyone looking for the best e-liquid on the market need look no further than Black Note. Black Note tobacco vaping liquid ranks as the best e-juice across the board in every category, starting with the taste.

Black Note’s main claim to fame is producing a tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. That because we use real tobacco extract, not chemicals, to create the best e-juice tobacco flavor. Using extract from real tobacco leaves retains tobacco’s nuances and flavor notes, giving you the most authentic and multi-faceted tobacco experience.

In addition to being the best e-juice for tobacco taste, Black Note also has the best e-liquid manufacturing process. We spent years researching and testing various production methods, and finally landed on one that we believe is absolutely perfect.

It starts with growing carefully selected tobacco seeds, followed by an equally precise of steps that include an extensive natural extraction process. Even our bottling and packaging is done with the utmost care, using recycled and recyclable packaging materials to ensure our products are as earth-friendly as they are vapor-friendly.

One more category where Black Note ranks as the best e-liquid is with the value. Every order comes with free domestic shipping, one-to-three day domestic shipping guarantee, and a 90-day, money-back satisfaction guarantee. If you’re not happy for any reason, or don’t agree we’re the best e-juice on the market, send it back on us and we’ll refund your money.

Vape Juice Ingredients

Vape juice ingredients can be pretty straightforward – or not. At the very least, most vape juice contains propylene glycol (PG), vegetable glycerin (VG), and some type of flavoring. Nicotine has largely become an optional ingredient that can be included at varying levels or left out altogether.

Vegetable glycerin (VG) and propylene glycol (PG) are usually the two main ingredients that make up the base of most vape juice.

VG is a plant-based substance with the ability to produce a dense, thick vapor. PG is an additive found in many food items and certain medicines. It carries the flavoring, provides the “throat hit” and enhances the vape juice’s ability to soak into the wicking materials.

Nicotine levels can vary, as can ingredients that make up the flavorings. The components that make up vape juice flavoring are where ingredients can get rather complicated.

Vape juice that relies on artificial flavorings can contain any number of extraneous chemicals and other additives, whatever it takes to recreate the flavor the ecig juice is going for.

Black Note uses only natural flavorings: extract from real tobacco leaves. That keeps our ingredient list incredibly simple, backed by a lab report to prove it. You won’t find any strange chemical concoctions used to produce our tobacco flavor, just real tobacco extract that delivers a real tobacco experience.

What is the Best Flavor for Ecig Juice?

From strawberry shortcake to banana rum, ecig juice comes in tons of flavors. While folks can debate and discuss all the fruity, sweet or food-like flavors all day long, the best flavor for e-cig liquid is straight-up tobacco.

Why? Vaping was originally created as an alternative for traditional cigarettes, mainly for those who enjoy the taste of tobacco. And when you can find an e-cig liquid that is able to recreate tobacco’s full-bodied yet delicate flavor notes and nuances, but without the harmful chemicals found in cigarettes, then you’ve found the best ecig juice.

Recreating tobacco’s complex flavor isn’t easy, especially when it’s attempted with artificial ingredients. That’s why Black Note sticks to the real thing, extracting the essence of real tobacco leaves to flavor our vaping liquid. Not only does this avoid the harmful chemicals in cigarettes, but it also eliminates the flavoring chemicals found in many ecig juices. The end result is real tobacco taste, an authentic tobacco experience and the best flavor for ecig juice you can find.

Notice also we said the best e-cig flavor was straight-up tobacco, not plain old tobacco. Black Note’s real tobacco vaping liquid happens to come in a variety of different blends, from the light and airy to the peppery and robust. Not all tobacco is created equal, and different blends capture the specialized subtleties that make each tobacco unique.

Best Sweet Tobacco E-Juice

When it comes to sweet tobacco e-juice, your options can be broken down into two categories.

The first category contains tobacco e-juice that overlays the tobacco flavor with artificial chocolate, caramel, vanilla, fruity or other dessert-like flavorings. We wouldn’t classify any such flavors as the best tobacco e liquid, simply because they typically use chemicals and other artificial ingredients to create the tobacco taste, the sweet taste, or both.

The second category of sweet tobacco e-juice is where you’ll find the best tobacco e-liquid, sweet or otherwise. This category contains vaping liquid created using only natural flavorings, which is exactly where Black Note fits in. Instead of concocting flavors using synthetic ingredients, Black Note uses an extensive extraction process that slowly and deliberately extracts the tobacco essence from real tobacco leaves.

The result is the best tobacco e-juice: tobacco vaping liquid that actually tastes like real tobacco. And if you’re going for the best sweet tobacco e liquid, we have a few tobacco blends that offer varying levels of sweetness.

Prelude is our sweetest tobacco e-liquid, containing golden Virginia tobacco. Made from fire-cured dark Virginia tobacco, Sonata is our Cavendish blend with a mildly sweet and nutty flavor. Solo is our menthol blend, giving you a semi-sweet minty taste created from natural menthol crystals extract from dried mint leaves.

For the best tobacco e-liquid that’s naturally sweet and remarkably delicious, Black Note is at your service.
