"The number of smokers in New Zealand has seen rapid growth over the last decade, alarming health advocates and the Ministry of Health. After decades of apathy, the government finally woke up in 2011, and set itself an ambitious target to make New Zealand smoke-free by as early as 2025"
So, what happened? Come 2015 and there were still an estimated 550,000 daily smokers in New Zealand. The sheer size of this number was mind-boggling. The government had failed miserably to bring down the number of smokers in the country. A large part of this failure could be attributed to ill-informed decisions regarding e-cigarettes.
The Health Ministry was aware of the incredible headway made by e-cigarettes in helping smokers quit their habit in other developed countries. Yet, because of the prevalent negative perception against nicotine, the ministry went ahead and banned the sale of nicotine-based e-liquids for e-cigarettes. As a result, ex-smokers trying to quit their habit had to
As of 2020, the vaping industry in New Zealand is now fully government regulated. If you haven’t been paying close attention, the changes may have been almost too subtle to notice. If you buy your vape gear from a regular retailer like a dairy, you may have noticed that some of the flavours that you used to buy seem to no longer be available. That’s because the new regulations prevent stores that aren’t vape shops from selling e-liquids and e-cigarette cartridges in flavours other than tobacco, mint and menthol.
For vape shops, though, it probably looks like business as usual from the outside since vape shops are still allowed to sell all vaping products and e-liquid flavours. What you may not realize, though, is that the new environment for New Zealand vape shops is anything but busin
One of the things that can really sap the fun out of shopping for anything tech-related is being forced to wade through a sea of unfamiliar terms and jargon. If you’re not a gadget lover, you’ve almost definitely encountered that situation when shopping for vape gear. Make no mistake; the vaping industry is most definitely a tech industry, even if the products that it replaces are some of the world’s oldest agricultural products.
This article will focus on defining and exploring the terms associated with just one aspect of vaping: e-liquid. Although vape juice is just one part of a much larger industry with a huge variety of different products, e-liquid is th
EasyPuff Vapor, a leading New Zealand online vape shop, has announced a series of website and business process modifications intended to ensure the company’s compliance with expected regulatory changes for the vaping industry in New Zealand while also aligning with the company’s goal of better serving the international market.
1. Buy Authentic Products The number one safety tip that every vaper must practice is to purchase authentic products. Not all vaping products you find on the market are original. Many of them are imitations and may pose safety risks. With that said, always ensure you are getting the “real McCoy.” The best way to achieve this is to always buy from a reliable store. Some vape shops get their products directly from the manufacturers and suppliers without any middleman. This guarantees that they are selling the real thing. There are many vape shops that sell authentic products. One of them is EasyPuff.
EasyPuff. is a reputable store where you can buy all kinds of vape kits with confidence. Apart from devices, you will also find e-liquids and accessories at this online shop. The team behind Easypuff is dedicated to vaping excellence.
Is dripping your preferred way to vape? If it is, you’ve learned to put up with the many shortcomings that RDAs have. An RDA doesn’t hold enough e-liquid for more than a few puffs. Adding the right amount of e-liquid to an RDA is tricky. If you add too much, the RDA leaks. If you add too little, you get a dry hit. You have to bring a bottle of e-liquid everywhere. Vaping while driving is essentially impossible. For putting up with those inconveniences, your reward is the purest flavour and best vapour production possible with an e-cigarette.
What if we told you, though, that most of those inconveniences aren’t necessary – that it’s actually possible to get the performance of an RDA without dripping, without carrying a bottle of e-liquid everywhere and without leaks? Get ready; we’re about to add an unusual new word to your vocabulary
Introducing the Squonk Mod
A squonk mod – also known as a bottom feeder mod – is about the same size as a dual-
Mainstream media has transformed from being a platform that brings unbiased news to their audience to a bubble that keeps feeding their audience only what they want to hear in a loop. The more media outlets out there, the more such bubbles in which people thrive. People have stopped looking for facts and news. Instead, they now rely on their favourite news anchors or TV show hosts to give them their version, their opinion, and their take on the facts. One such industry that has been pummeled by the mainstream media is the vaping industry.
Whether it is because of the word ‘cigarette’ in e-cigarette, the negative perception of nicotine, or something else, the public has a perceptible negative view of the e-cigarettes. Mainstream media and government officials, in their attempts to appease to their audience’s sensibilities, no matter how unfounded they are in facts, only promote that negative view and have been hounding the vaping industry for decades. It’s time to disp

Nasty e-juice the Plush Feel and Quality

When you’re shopping online for e-cigarettes in New Zealand, you’re likely to see a lot of mechanical mods. Mechanical mods are popular in the vaping community because they’re simple, durable, beautiful and inexpensive – but is a mech mod the right choice for you? This article is your complete guide to buying mechanical mods in New Zealand. When you’re done reading, you’ll understand how to choose the right mechanical mod. You’ll also understand how mech mods vs. regulated mods compare – and you’ll know how to use mechanical mods safely. Let’s get started.
What Are Mechanical Mods?
A mechanical mod is a vaping device with no digital controls, no integrated circuit and no internal electronics of any kind.

Nicotine is a stimulant that is in desperate need of a PR agent. Call it the lack of knowledge or the need for a buzzword by the media, nicotine has received an intense dose of bad press since the 1960s. At one point, it was thought to cause cancer, which, by the way, is 100% myth. It does not cause any cardiovascular diseases either. Yet, the negativity towards nicotine is real and it is deeply rooted in the public psyche. So, it’s no wonder that any product that contains nicotine in any concentration gets a bad rep too. So, is nicotine really so bad for you? Let’s get to know the infamous nicotine better and the effects it has on your body.
What is nicotine?
Nicotine is an alkaloid, and its chemical structure is similar to that of cocaine and caffeine. It is found abundantly in nature. In fact, trace amounts of nicotine are found even in eggplants, potatoes, and tomatoes.
