Vape Radio 80: An Easier Way for E-liquid Sellers to Stay in Business

Vape Radio 80: An Easier Way for E-liquid Sellers to Stay in Business

By | Podcasts | No Comments

Today’s interview is with Derrick Woods with e-Pure Liquids. His company is offering e-liquid sellers a great option moving forward and what could be a make-sense way to stay in business.

If you are in the liquid business we’re opening a new division within VapeMentors called PMTA Advisors to help you with options and choices and give you guidance moving forward.

What’s prompting this is D-Day- August 8. Things are happening everywhere. New products being launched and current ones being redone.

VAPExpo in Amsterdam and Prague are coming up. Please come meet with me! The first two weeks of august I’ll be touring as many companies and shops as I can.

If you heard vape radio #78, we talked about a new movie about vaping called A Billion Lives. It is now coming to the US, so stay tuned since it may be coming to a theater near you!

After 8/8 you cannot make any changes to your product. That means any changes. For those in the liquid market that are doing significant volume you must be sure that your lab, or the one you use, is set to upgrade to new requirements. Problem is, we don’t know exactly what those may be. So most are going to the extreme and are making pharmaceutical grade labs.

Today’s interview is with RonTully, with Next Generation Labs. His is a name you may have heard before ifyou are in the liquid biz. Today he’ll be sharing a product that may change alot of things in the e-liquid world.

Tobacco Free Nicotine: what isit? Another name for it is synthetic nicotine, but the term syntheticis not a popular one, kind of like GMO.

There may be advantages to TFN:Better flavor. No aftertaste. Easier to mix with. Those are all good. But it’spricier than regular nicotine. But not enough to dissuade you and after all,you do get what you pay for.

When you combine TFN with highquality ingredients, what do you get? Pretty awesome flavor. Great forconnoisseurs!

The world of vape is changingand you must change with it. The key to survival is adaptation, and ourinterview today IS all about adapting- to a brand new market.

“If you think the vape industry is dead, you are right. And if you think the industry and your business will survive, you are right as well. It’s all a matter of mindset and attitude.”

That sets to the tone as we move forward and where survival of the fittest- and those willing to change- will live.

Arnuad Dumas de Rauly, president of GaiaTrend, one of the largest liquid manufacturers in Europe, is our guest today, talking about a movie called “A Billion Lives.”

We encourage all of you to pay attention since this movie is by non-vapers for non-vapers and is a powerful story that may help our cause.

“This is not chapter three of the trilogy; it may be the end of chapter one and there is much more to come.” “It ain’t over till it’s over.” Two quotes that may indicate the direction of this Brand New World of vape.

The other shoe has fallen. The FDA has spoken and it means…what? The end of the world as we know it? Business as usual? Do we even know?

This interview with attorney Phil Daman, a nationally recognized FDA legal authority, covers what these new regulations say and what they don’t say.

Since the new regulation’s start clock officially begins on 5/10, we are proclaiming May 10 as National Vape Awareness Day. Phil will be joining us for a LIVE Q & A, and since this is time sensitive, you can visit www.vapementors.com for information.

Vape Radio 76: These United States? Interview with CASAA Legislative Director, Alex Clark

By | Podcasts | No Comments

It’s about Freedom. It’s about Choice. “It’s really about standing up for yourself! No one wants to be bullied and there has to be a time when we stand up and punch back.” That quote from Alex Clark, Legislative Coordinator with CASAA, sums it all up.

I had to totally rewrite today’s show since the new deeming regulation unfolded with little notice. The FDA released them May 5, so at least we now know the outcome. No more speculating, no more wondering.

Our first interview is with Alex Clark, legislative director with CASAA. Our topic of conversation was about state’s taking their own initiative and instituting laws in lieu of the FDA. We then lead into the new deeming regulations.

Vape Radio 75: The Smallest Vape Show in Town!

It’s like “Speed Dating” for the vape industry and Vape Shop Events is the one show you may never attend or even be invited to. They bring together just two dozen buyers and two dozen sellers and they all spend two days meeting and developing relationships. The net result? BUSINESS happens. And that has been missing from the industry for a long time.

We interviewed Mike Sessoms, the founder, who offers insight into the program and why you should attend if you are a serious player in the vape space.

Meanwhile: Still…no word from the FDA. We all wait, and wait, and wait. As soon as we know, we’ll share it here and bring you interviews from many that can offer their insight.

This show includes an interview with one of the largest contract manufacturers of e-liquids in the country. We discuss future regulations and how they compare to pharmacy guidelines. We will see more changes in THIS sector than any other one over the next two years.

At VapeMentors we connect with amazing people and significant companies. When you hire me you get not just me, but our entire network. Today you’ll meet one of the resources, known as JSPR. They also own Council of Vapor, and if you need hardware designed, they are the Go to people.

I plan to spend quite a bit of time on this liquid market in the next few months for some of these reasons, plus because I am launching a program to help vape shops double their revenue. One tool to that end is house lines of juice. I’ll be sharing that in the next show or two.

We also wanted to share with you another event, and this one is about the misunderstood world of CBD.

Are you confused about CBD? Do you have an interest in offering the products but now sure about any legal issues?
