Vaping Diaries #199: Rocka Mystic Owner Jan Uyl Interview

Posted on April 22nd, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Rocka Mystic owner Jan Uyl was a pastry chef and baker for more than 30 years. He was also a cigarette smoker for more than 30 years. Thanks to vaping, he was finally able to quit smoking. However, he was never really satisfied with the juices he bought and never could find an all-day vape. He used his culinary expertise to create Rocka Mystic.

Rocka Mystic currently offers five e-liquids that cover a variety of tastes. Skidizzles, Sweet Tart, and Tiger’s Blood will satisfy vapers looking for candy flavors. With … continued

Vaping Diaries #198: Vape Shops and Mistruths About Cotton

Posted on April 21st, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Vaping Diaries. 2 comments

For the last year or so, cotton has become the wicking material of choice for many vapers. There are several reasons why cotton makes excellent vaping wick, but there are also some misconceptions about what it offers and what it doesn’t. Recently, I was at a local vape shop and was shocked by what one of the clerks was telling a customer about cotton. Some of the things he said were inaccurate and some of them were flat-out false. With so many unknowns in vaping, I was appalled that a … continued


Vaping Diaries #197: True Leaf Vapor Interview

Posted on April 16th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Last week, I went to Majestic Vapes in Beverly Hills to meet the owners of True Leaf Vapor. The company is working with the excellent Nirvana Vapor and has launched a line of naturally-extracted tobacco (NET) e-liquids. If you’re familiar with the Southern California vape scene then you know that the vast majority of local juice companies focus on fruit flavors, with savory dessert juices becoming popular in 2014. As a huge fan of NET e-liquids, I find it sad that most SoCal vape shops don’t carry NETs and … continued

Vaping Diaries #196: Nirvana Vapor Jay O’Brien Interview

Posted on April 11th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Posted above is a chat I had with Nirvana Vapor CEO Jay O’Brien filmed at Majestic Vapes in Beverly Hills. If you’re not familiar with the company, Nirvana Vapor makes some really unique e-liquids inspired by East Asian and Indian flavors. A few of the company’s juices have wonderfully atypical flavors that left me thinking, “Wow! I’ve never had anything like this.” Additionally, Nirvana Vapor makes several traditional flavors that stand out with their complexity and multiple layers.

During our conversation, Jay spoke about using East Asian and Indian flavors … continued

Vaping Diaries #195: Royal Vapour and ModTrades.com Interview

Posted on April 11th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Earlier this week, I caught up with Royal Vapour co-owners TJ Stephens and Ali Mumin at Vape Star Los Angeles. The two told me about their backgrounds, the Royal Vapour approach to making juices, their favorite juices, upcoming flavors, and the ModTrades.com web site. The company started last year, officially kicking things off at ECC 2013. Since then, the company has become very popular in Southern California, with burgeoning national exposure.

Two of the hottest Royal Vapour e-liquids at the moment are The King’s Chew and Queen’s Custard. … continued

Vaping Diaries #194: Ragtime Vapor Interview

Posted on April 4th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

It was an absolute pleasure catching up with Ragtime Vapor owners David and Ellen Farentino. Their company makes some wonderfully complex e-liquid, they’re awesome people to hang out with, and they are extremely candid on camera. While the interview above is much longer than my typical vaping interview, it’s also one of my favorite vaping pieces I’ve put together. The amount of detail David and Ellen provided was fantastic. I’m confident that any vaper that watches my Ragtime Vapor interview will walk away knowing (at least) a little … continued

Vaping Diaries #193: Cyber Liquids Anthony Garcia Interview

Posted on April 4th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

After meeting the Cyber Liquids crew at Vapetoberfest, it was great catching up with the company’s managing partner, Anthony Garcia at Vapers Exhibit. He told me about the company’s two new flavors — Elysian Fields and Vader. Going after the crowd that’s going gaga over Suicide Bunny’s hugely popular Mother’s Milk e-liquid, Elysian Fields is a milky blueberry blend. Vader is a sweet concoction that gives you the rich flavor of cookie dough, but without all the calories. (It may or may not be true that vaping Vader … continued
