The vape industry itself has developed multiple ways to fix this issue. One of the simplest is to simply put a filter/barrel like piece on top of the filter of a cig/vape/pod…you press to let the menthol liquid loose and with your every hit you get plenty of menthol or any flavor you like endless possibilities.
I can imagine a cartridge which literally has flavorless distillate. Which fits one of these flavor tips on top. It can provide you with any number of flavors you like however cannabis users aren’t seeking fruity flavors.
Its an interesting idea I had but never went went ahead with it. It requires bit of R&D on how to best utilize the terpenes to do this.
When they say they’re banning flavored cigars, does that include Backwoods, Swishers, Zig Zag Wraps, and the like? I’ve known many people who will buy those, dump the tobacco, and roll blunts with the paper. I know they sell flavored wraps but it isn’t the same feeling.
Yes, it will affect everything. In fact, this is already in place in multiple places. In NYC you can’t legally buy flavored wraps or papers. You won’t know this if you visited a store because they sell everything. Companies do not ship their products to NYC but they can to NJ/CT etc and the jobbers go and sell to the stores.
Also NYC is has a very hefty tax and minimum on game and other cigar products. I think the minimum for a game is above $6 in NYC but in Long Island or outside of NYC within New York State your fine with flavored wraps and these cigars.
ITG Brands Statement on FDA Announcement of Advancement of Product Standards to Ban Menthol Cigarettes and Flavored Cigars
GREENSBORO, N.C. (April 29)—ITG Brands, LLC issued the following statement in response to the Food and Drug Administration’s announcement that it would advance the rulemaking process to prohibit menthol as a characterizing flavoring in cigarettes and other flavors in cigars:
“The FDA’s announcement that it intends to advance product standards to prohibit menthol cigarettes and flavored cigars is disappointing, but not unexpected. We believe the rulemaking process will reveal that there is no clear scientific evidence to support a federal menthol and flavor ban. We are hopeful that FDA will follow the law and prioritize sound policy and science over political pressure. ITG Brands is well prepared to engage with the FDA to ensure that the agency is guided by the science on this issue and that regulators give due consideration to the numerous unintended consequences that such policies would inevitably bring. We will also make sure the voices of our adult consumers and wholesale and retail partners are represented during every stage of the years-long rulemaking process.”

I only have the 2. I haven’t ran tobacco through them for any real length of time but now that there may be a reason to tinker around with them, I’ll fire them up and try and take some video of it working for a decent amount of time continuously. Would probably be willing to get rid of one of them if I can make sure they are in working order first.
Yes. The injection rod gets too sticky after a couple tubes and all the gears that feed material down get gummed up into submission. The people using these or filling tubes are probably using spent bio or stuff that’s been kiefed to being worthless.
