This is interesting.
There is an Australian company that is pushing the boundaries of the e-cigarette as we have come to know it:
In the fall of 2013 the company began quietly working on the new product codenamed: "Vita".
"We incorporated a new subsidiary: VitaCig, Inc. trademarked the name"VitaCig", and developed the "VitaCig" - a nicotine-free eCig thatdelivers a water-vapor comprised of vitamins, nutrients, and naturalflavors," mCig's CEO Paul Rosenberg said, in a written statement.
I kind of like the idea of inhaling my vitamins.... In fact, I already do on occasion.
As far as mCig is aware, a product comparable to VitaCig does not exist on the market.
The old adage is true: if you are conjuring up a new idea, someone somewhere is already one step ahead of you. There is a U.S. based company named Blow that currently distributes its own version of a vitamin-based e-juice called Vitamin Smoke. It is an e-juice that is supplemented with Vitamin C, B Vitamins, and Echinacea. I stumbled upon this brand in a smoke shop when I was back home visiting in Chicago a few months ago. Having never come across anything like it before, I shelled out the cash and bought a few bottles of their e-juice. Not knowing whether or not I'd like it or not, I gave one of its "tobacco" flavors a try and I have so say honestly that a vitamin supplemented e-cigarette can be quite enjoyable.
The more innovation that takes place, the better for us consumers.
Ok, back to the VitaCig: After doing a bit of searching, I've discovered that the company has also developed a personal vaporizer called the mCig that looks much like a cross between an e-cigarette and a standard vaporizer pen, though instead of e-juice it heats plant material, waxes, and oils. I have the feeling that vaporizing tobacco is going to become quite popular amongst smokers...eventually. Finding the right kind of tobacco to vape can be tricky however. Creating a tasty tobacco vaping experience is one thing that the San Francisco-based company called Ploom seems to have mastered quite well. Maybe mCig will someday compete with my Ploom pods....we'll see.
I look forward to the day when we can also vape our tobacco along with various anti-inflammatory agents . That day is coming. Too bad CVS will be on the outside looking in.
Someday smokers are going to be the healthiest people in the world! Ahh...Now that's what I would call poetic justice. Don't laugh. It can happen. There was a time when we thought that the world was flat after all.
plant material, waxes, and oils
