Here is interesting but troubling story on New York’s disposable vape scene.
“The Vaping Industry Has Gone Rogue Juul’s been dethroned. Mysterious upstarts sell banned flavors shipped in from China. Counterfeits are everywhere.”
By Matt Stieb
One of my favorite eLiquids, Teleos has always been a top tier player in the boutique eLiquid game. At their peak, they had the best Cereal and Milk flavors out there and today and they still do. Too bad they closed shop but not for us always looking for a bargain. Not sure about the Euro market, but all of the remaining stock I could find is being blown out by liquidation sales on the web. I found these 0mg delights quite by accident. All I can says is that I feel lucky. Go and find yourself some if you still can and good luck. It’s worth the hunt.
Teleos eLiquid Descriptions:
“Bits E-Juice by Teleos is an exceedingly mouthwatering cereal blend that is as well balanced as it is incredibly robust. This masterpiece very precisely delivers the familiar taste of your favorite “charmed” cereal. Complete with the various tiny marshmallows, this taste is then enhanced with a glass of ice-cold milk for a smooth and velvety finish.
Experiment Two E-Juice by Teleos takes their celebrated Experiment One profile to new heights. It begins with a bowl of your favorite sweetened puffed corn cereal, which is swimming in a bowl of ice-cold milk. It is then enhanced with a hint of creamy vanilla pudding before being graced with undertones of mango and lime.
Alpha E-Juice by Cloud Science is a smooth, sweet, and genuinely delicious blend that delivers various notes with every draw. Similar to cotton candy, this gem offers strawberry-infused sugar top-notes, while the undertones of berries and various rich creams rounds off the velvety exhale masterfully. You will be impressed with the multi-layered profile Alpha affords, making it a pure joy to vape throughout the day.
Boo E-Juice by Teleos flawlessly delivers the memorable taste of your favorite berry crunch cereal. This lip-smacking e-liquid affords a multifaceted flavor experience, with eat note perfectly complementing the others. Upon inhale, your tongue will be graced with the sweet and delectable taste of crunch berry cereal, enhanced with hints of marshmallow. The exhale reveals rich and creamy milk, topped off with the ideal amount of mountain-fresh blueberries.
Pound Cake E-Juice by Teleos is one of the most deliciously-flavorful blends on the market today. This jewel begins with a freshly-baked lemon pound cake that affords the ideal amount of sweetened lemon flavor. It is then coated with a generous portion of gooey frosting, providing for an unequivocally lip-smacking exhale that will have you begging for more.
Delta E-Juice by Cloud Science is a smooth, sweet, and absolutely mouthwatering flavor that is unlike anything you have ever tried. The best way to describe this exclusive concoction is a fruit cobbler, but without the pastry. Mountain-fresh blueberries are mixed with juicy acai berries and plump nectarines, then mixed with raw sugar. It is then reduced down to a delicious filling, tying all of the sweet notes together magnificently.”
I have never tried synthetic nic. I never wanted to, but for those who do, there is trouble ahead. Even Five Pawns switched to synthetic nic. Here is breakdown from the National Law Review by Azim Chowdhury.
“FDA Receives Authorization to Regulate Synthetic Nicotine
Wednesday, March 16, 2022
On March 15, President Joe Biden signed a $1.5 trillion omnibus spending bill to fund the federal government through September. The bill, as passed, includes a provision amending the definition of “tobacco product” in Section 201(rr) of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (“FDCA”) as “any product made or derived from tobacco, or containing nicotine from any source, that is intended for human consumption.” 21 U.S.C. 321(rr). Now that it is law, this provision closes the synthetic nicotine “loophole” and puts synthetic nicotine products under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) tobacco regulatory authority.
The law will become effective 30 days after the bill’s enactment, i.e., on April 14, 2022 (“Effective Date”). Any synthetic nicotine product currently on the U.S. market as of April 14, 2022, can remain on the market for an additional 30 days until May 14, 2022 (the “Synthetic Nicotine PMTA Submission Deadline”). Manufacturers of synthetic nicotine products wishing to take advantage of FDA’s compliance policy and enforcement discretion after that date must submit a premarket tobacco product application (PMTA) to FDA by the enforcement date. If a PMTA is submitted in a timely manner, the product(s) may remain on the market for an additional 90 days after the effective date, i.e., until July 13, 2022. After July 13, 2022, any synthetic nicotine product not authorized by FDA must come off the market.
EVENT DATE NOTES
Bill Enactment March 15, 2022
Effective Date April 14, 2022
Deadline for any new* synthetic nicotine products to enter the market
Deadline for modified synthetic nicotine products to remain on the market
Synthetic Nicotine PMTA Submission Deadline May 14, 2022 (Saturday)
Deadline for submitting PMTAs for all synthetic nicotine products on the U.S. market as of the Effective Date
Final date July 13, 2022 (Wednesday) Deadline for unauthorized synthetic nicotine products to remain on the U.S. market
Notably, under the provision, a synthetic version of an existing nicotine product that went through the PMTA process and is now subject to a Refuse-to-Accept (RTA), Refuse-to-File (RTF), Marketing Denial Order (MDO), or withdrawal of a marketing order may not be marketed beyond the effective date, i.e., April 14, 2022. In other words, products originally formulated with tobacco-derived nicotine that were refused or denied authorization by FDA, then modified to use synthetic nicotine instead (and that is the only modification), will effectively be banned on April 13, 2022. Manufacturers of these products will not be given an opportunity to submit a new PMTA. This appears to be Congress’s way of doubling down on products that, in Congress’ view, switched to synthetic nicotine to get around the PMTA process.
Beyond the PMTA submission requirement, manufacturers of synthetic nicotine products will be subject to all requirements of regulations for tobacco products. This likely includes all other Tobacco Control Act requirements, including tobacco product establishment registration and product listing; ingredient listing; label compliance; and health document submissions, among others. We anticipate that FDA will provide guidance on deadlines for these requirements in the near future.”

A couple of ebooks I recently found and purchased if your interested in learning about DIY mixing.
In the USA, it’s official, the FDA is now going to be pulling your card (eLiquid) if you did not submit your PMTA’s.
Yep, it’s starting. Start sweating. Four down, thousands to go.
Only the strong and smart will survive and or eLiquid companies with the most money, as the average PMTA filing cost’s about $300K per flavor, per nic level and per size.
