Vaping has been around for a long time now and has seen a huge increase over the last five years. As of May 2016, an estimated 2.8 million people vape in the UK, which is an increase of over 2 million since 2012. In the United States it was estimated in 2015 that up to 4.2 million people used e cigarettes exclusively and have quit smoking tobacco altogether. Compare this to the 40 million that still smoke though, and it’s clear there’s still a long way to go for vaping to catch up.
News — May 2016
Today is officially the day where the Tobacco Products Directive comes into force. As you should know by now the TPD has caused a storm in the vaping world and the debates still continue, and will do for some time. Consumers won’t see the full effects of the new directives until well into the second half of 2016, as retailers have 12 months to sell the remainder of their stock. When stocks are sold though, we’ll see big changes for vaping and it’ll be interesting to see how many e liquid manufacturers are still trading this time next year.
This week we’ve added another exciting new range of e liquid to our inventory and this time it hails from our very own London town. Ruby’s Originals are a relative newcomer to the vaping world and they’ve created six delicious new flavours. We’re proud to announce we now stock all six right here at SmokShop.com.
This Friday (20th May 2016), the new laws of the TPD will be rolled out across Europe. There have been endless debates concerning the TPD since it was first initiated in 2014, and even high court appeals, but if there’s one thing we’ve learned about the EU, it’s that they’re not for turning.
If you’ve been following the news then you’ll know that new laws concerning vaping are being unleashed on the 20th May 2016. Most vapers, manufacturers and vendors agree this is bad news for the vaping community. But today we have good news. What’s the good news? It’s four words. Kanger Top Evod Kit.
