Highbrow News

Hanging out with the guys has just gotten easier. Before, you could hang out and enjoy your cigarettes in bars or at the restaurant. Then, government regulations cut these relaxing options.

However, it didn’t seem to bother you as much as you turned to an alternative – electric cigarette. Yes, this new fad took well to girlfriends and wives as you didn’t have the smell of tobacco clinging to your clothes or your breath. You can indulge in electric cigarettes everywhere - a surprise to restaurant and bar attendees who approach you to ask you to put your cigarette out, only to find it is not a traditional cigarette.

However, new government regulations have taken effect, eliminating e-cigarettes in public areas. So having those nights out with the fellas has dramatically decreased once again. Well, 2014 is a great new year as the growing trend of vaping lounges has come to Chicago, New York City, Philadelphia, and many other major cities in the US.

A Gentlemen’s Club for All

If you’ve ever experienced a gentleman’s club and cigar lounge, you should have an idea of what a vaping lounge is. Immersed in a comfortable indoor setting and a relaxed atmosphere, connoisseurs of e-cigs all gather, bound by the new "vaper" cultural trend – vaping.

Why the Sudden Popularity?

Since the government has stepped in and started the ban of smoking e-cigarettes in public places, those that enjoy vaping are limited to where they can partake in such activities. However, it’s legal for licensed cigar lounges or designated casino smoking areas to exist. So the development of vaping in these types of establishments has transferred to e-cigarette locations as well.

For those of you who no longer smoke regular cigarettes, you’ve found comfort enjoying the various desert, fruit, or Highbrowbacco flavors that e-cigs can provide. And, you can still enjoy puffing a cloud of smoke.

Vapor lounges are a community of electric cigarette smokers who can relax and relate to each other. Vaping is a unique subculture emerging now. There are people who gather for their love of music, art, or baseball. And now there are those that enjoy the relaxing puff of an e-cigarette after work.

What Can You Do in a Vapor Lounge?

Vapor lounges are like any other cigar lounge. Folks from all walks of life discover new flavors that emerge on the market. They enjoy each other’s company, watch the game, talk sports, or business news.

There are even events that take place at vapor lounges across the country such as open mic night or discovering local artists.

So now there is hope across America that the vaping culture will not fade away. The vapor lounges are yet another getaway after work or on the weekend to escape to. You don’t have to hide out at home and enjoy your Black Cherry Dulcet, Carmel, Espresso, or Highbrowbacco Cigar flavors alone. 

 


Getting on an airplane without your e-cigarette can be a harrowing experience filled with security checks and  close inspection of your luggage. Going on vacation doesn't mean you have to leave your vaping supplies home either. The best way to travel by plane with an e-cigarette and e-juice is to follow these three rules of national and international flying

Rule # 1: Pack Only What You Need

When large quantities of the ejuice and vaping components (like batteries) are packed into your luggage or carry-on, you increase the likelihood of security taking notice and becoming suspicious.  This might result in it being confiscated or at least a confrontation with the security guard.  They'll want to know what the reason for all the liquid.  So, don't bring too any cartridges in your carry-on. Put the bulk in your luggage. 

Rule #2: Be Upfront About Your Vaping Supplies 

If you to get asked about your vaping supplies, don't lie or avoid answering. Tell them exactly what they are and how you use them. Most security officers know what they are and have seen them before. Dishonesty will only set them at odds with you and increase the likelihood that the materials will be confiscated.  Depending upon the security level of the airport, you may not be allowed to take your supplies on board or have to stow them in your luggage.   

Rule #3: Don't Smoke On-Board

If you reach the plane with your e-cigarette and e-juice still in your possession, don't let the urge to vape on the plane take control of your common sense. It's still against societal norms and/or the law to vape or smoke on a plane. It's possible the vapor could irritate the lung of a person on-board, particularly if they have severe allergies or COPD. The vapor, itself, does not contain any irritants, but high altitudes and close quarters could make it more likely for the vapor to create medical issues for others.   Additionally, vaping in the cramped, smelly quarters of a plane's lavatory is not a pleasant experience.  If you must vape on the plane, you will need a letter of permission from the airplane company to join the mile-high vaping club. 

Quick Tip: Don't want to leave anything to chance on the day of the trip? Contact the airports in your itinerary  and ask about their procedures for vaping supplies. Do exactly as they suggest for each leg of your trip. This way you aren't as likely to have a negative encounter to ruin your trip.

When you head to exotic locales or just home for the holidays, you don't have to leave your vaping supplies behind. To fly without hassles, just follow these three simple rules - you'll be able to step outside the airport and vape with your favorite e-cig when you land. 

 

 

Your choices in e-juice flavors may tell the person next to you a little about who you are and the things you enjoy in life. Whether your favorite flavor is traditional, fruity or a decadent dessert, your personality likely shows with your choices.

 

Highbrowbacco - Cigar

You are a true classic inside and out. You probably favor waiting a bit over the need to run out and stand in an all-night line to get the latest, greatest high-tech gadget before everyone else does. You’re a family person and truly enjoy spending time with loved ones.

Vanilla Bourbon Bean

You likely surround yourself with very close friends. You enjoy being known as laid-back and having that tried-and-true personality that lets your friends and soul mate know who you are. You are accomplished but do not flaunt it.

Strawberry-Lemonade

You usually like to keep things on a light note and yet love to impress. You are sweet-as-can-be but with a twist. With your people-skills, you are sure to have many friends who enjoy just hanging out with you.

Dark Chocolate Mint

You have no deep, dark secrets…Ok, maybe a couple. You are a hopeless romantic and crave all the sweet things that life has to offer, so you probably do not feel guilty when you indulge in your sweetest desires.

Buttered Rum-and-then-some

So you are “all that and a bag of chips,” huh? It definitely shows. You probably admit to being a little on the high maintenance side but think you deserve it. You carry yourself well and people will likely admire you because you stand so tall, have a strong personality and can turn heads when you walk by.

Eve’s Delight

You are as natural as it gets. You will no-doubt always be a nature lover who enjoys the outdoors. Your delightful, care-free, fun-loving spirit shines through to everyone you meet.

Heavenly Macaroon

You enjoy that complex personality don’t you? Other people may even be a little envious because they have to work so hard at what comes natural to you. Sweet, yet sultry and sexy, even a little nutty when you want to be; you can win anyone over and never feel guilty about it.

Caramel Cake

If caramel cake is your favorite e-juice, you are apt to be bold, yet subtle at just the right time. You may be seen as self-indulgent, but you deserve it. So go ahead and indulge yourself with Caramel Cake.

Highbrowbacco - Menthol

You are so cool but you know when to hold back on the cool factor. You can easily put on your straight-face when at Sunday dinner with the family or in that important meeting, but after that, it is back to showing the great blend of qualities that gives you that perfect cool-factor.

All these flavors are great choices and may even reveal something about your personality. Do not limit yourself to just one favorite because there are many more choices that allow you to indulge in enjoying life’s little moments.

 

Many of us smoked tobacco for years because we believed it helped us to relax. The ritual of lighting up, the taste of the first drag, the feel of the nicotine in our systems was unforgettable. Vaping provides an alternative to cigarettes that offers many of the same relaxing rituals.  

 

 

Create a Mindset for Relaxation

One of the quickest ways to beat stress with the aide of a vape is to re-create that smoking ritual you enjoy with cigarettes.  Make your vaping just as deliberate an act as smoking a cigarette. Try carrying your vape in a small decorative case. When you remove it from the case, do so mindful of your actions. Think ahead to the delicious flavor you will soon be enjoying.

Place it into your mouth and enjoy the feel of the vapor as you inhale. Perhaps you wish to roll it around your mouth to savor the flavor a bit more. Feel it hit your throat just right. Pull it into your lungs and finally, exhale slowly. Now that is pleasure and relaxation in your pocket!

Taste the Flavor

With a vape, you are in complete control of the flavors in your machine. Many people will turn to sweet flavors such as chocolate, peach or cherry when stressed. A vape provides all of the flavor and relaxation with none of the calories or sugar.

The Nicotine Rush

Most of us enjoy nicotine in our vape brews. For those of us who enjoy nicotine, it can be one of the high points of vaping. So select your favorite nicotine strength at the end of a long hard day to help unwind. There is no tobacco tar or smell that may offend those around you. Just sit back in your favorite place and indulge yourself in a nicotine haze.

A Place For Your Hands

Stress can make you want to do something active. But there are times when you just cannot move about as you'd like to. Holding and manipulating your vape while enjoying a session can go far in relieving your physical and emotional tensions. 

De-Stress Nearly Anywhere

A vape is much more socially acceptable then tobacco products. Most people will not bat an eye at a small device and its modest vapor cloud in most public places. You should always ask before vaping if you are in an enclosed public space. That said, few things are as relaxing and enjoyable as vaping as you go about the business of your day.

Have a Lazy Day

You can vape in the creature comforts of your own home as you indulge in a little bit of sloth. Pair up a custom vape flavor to your favorite junk food and just sprawl out and enjoy a movie marathon or cheer your favorite team on. Few things beat the stress of the workday week like a day spent unwinding and enjoying the fruits of your labor.

Public VapingMany people take up vaping because, unlike tobacco products, using a vaporizer is legal in most public places. They enjoy the freedom to enjoy their product of choice when and where they like. But to keep our freedom to vape freely we must learn about those few restrictions that do exist while acting responsibly to avoid more.

Legal Restrictions

There are a few legal restrictions on vaping that every vaper should be aware of. You cannot vape on a plane or most buses, for example. Many federal and state buildings are also tougher on vapers then other locations. Schools and places with many children may also have tighter restrictions. Remember, if in doubt, ask!

Education and Acceptance

If you are in a place where vaping is allowed, try to keep it that way. Remember, not everyone knows what a vape is and may distrust that strangely complex little device of yours. You may have to answer a few questions from time to time from curious smokers and non-smokers alike. Take it as a compliment and educate away. People are less likely to fear and want to ban something they understand.

A Question Of Etiquette

Don't vape in front of small children. Many parents will not know or care that your device is not a tobacco product. All they will care about is the cloud of vapor near their child. Parents will also complain loudly to those who make the policies if pushed.

Vaping inside restaurants is a touchy subject.. Always ask about the policy of that individual restaurant before indulging. Some restaurants will allow it any time, others ban it completely. Still other eateries allow it only at certain times of the day.

Don't light up inside a movie theater or other indoor performance. The vapor will interfere with the projector. If you have an e-cigarette with a lighted tip than those near you will be distracted. If you are at a live performance it is also best to avoid vaping if the room is dark.

Finally, don't be a 'cloud chaser' in public. A cloud chaser is a person who uses a vaporizer that can help him puff lovely large clouds of 'smoke', much like a medieval dragon. Many people enjoy these devices. Some even complete with others to create the biggest and best clouds they can. The problem is that many non-vapers do not enjoy the spectacle if it is in public space. To many, it is tantamount to blowing smoke in their faces. This is one mis-understanding that is easy to avoid. While vaping in a vaporizer-friendly public place use a device that releases just a small puff of vapor. Save your cloud chasing for those who will appreciate it.

It's Up to All of Us

In the end, common sense and consideration will go far to preserving our freedom to vape. Choose your battles wisely. Keep your cool while educating others about how a vaporizer works and what it releases as 'smoke'. In the end, the preservation of vaping freedom will be well worth it.

Tasty e-cig liquid is one of the biggest benefits to vaping. Unlike tobacco cigarettes, a vaporizer can be filled up with the liquid that you prefer; personalizing and enhancing the vaping experience. It can come in flavors that one would never expect, like desserts, candies or even delicious fruit juices. In fact, many people love to call it 'ejuice' because it is so versatile. 
A Great Treat
Non traditional flavors that remind one of food can have other benefits, from morning to night. A clean and bright minty flavor is great in the morning after breakfast, to cleanse the palate. A fresh fruity flavor is wonderful mid day for a fast pick me up on the go.  A devilish cappuccino flavor may compliment your lunch nicely.
