As you all know we have had quite a few bumps in the road this past year. Unfortunately, we will NOT be able to sell A Clean Cigarette products after September 9, 2020 due to government regulations from the FDA.
We are currently transitioning to new products that we will not be offering online. Please continue to visit us at one of our 8 Michigan store locations to see the new products that we have available! We are also open longer hours at most of our stores to serve you better.
We want to take this time to THANK YOU personally, it’s been our pleasure to serve you over the years, we consider you not only as friends, but FAMILY. Please accept our deepest apologies for this.
Hello all, it’s Dawn here again. For those of you who know me then you know I am the A Clean Cigarette blogger that fumbles across the internet seeking out information that we as A Clean Cigarette brand e-cigarette users need to be aware of. If you don’t know me, I invite you to come get to know me, and I thank you for being here. I hope that I can keep these blogs fun but informative and that you will come back often to stay updated! 6.6 million lives could depend on it.
On the blog here and in our A Clean Cigarette community we have been all about the WHY behind the things that we do. I would like to keep with that today and talk about a WHY that I personally feel pretty strong about.
I have been asked why I separate e-cigs and vapors into two different industries when I am blogging. The answer is because they ARE different.
It’s simple, really one type of product is designed to look and feel like a cigarette. It is not designed to be a new product, instead, it is designed to be an update to an existing product. The burning tobacco cigarette.
On the other hand, the vapor products on the market are a whole new product. Thier only similarity to traditional cigarettes is that some of these devices deliver nicotine. The look, the feel, even the taste and throat hit are different than a traditional burning tobacco cigarette. These products are brand new things that happen to sometimes deliver nicotine.
Instead of throat hit they give cloud, instead of cig-a-like design, they give a handheld device and instead of a familiar tobacco taste, they offer dessert and candy flavors.
Now I am not saying one product is better than the other, but they are different from each other. MoD and Tank model vapors are fine products for people looking for a new device, and flavors like Gummy Bear and Fruit Loop. For smokers like me, who want a cigarette though these are just not the simple product my burning tobacco cigarette was and now my A Clean Cigarette brand e-cigarette is. They are different.
They are different in marketing and demographic too. Most e-cigs, like the ones you see produced by big tobacco companies on gas station shelves and like the high-quality ones that we produce here at A Clean Cigarette are actually rather boring. They are not designed with a trend-setting image in mind. Like I said they don’t really do anything new. There is no new toy novelty to it. What little novelty they held wore off as soon as the public saw them for what they are, an electronic version of the cigarette.
On the other hand when it comes to vapor products NEW is what it’s all about. The cooler the design, the larger the cloud, the more unique they are the higher in demand they are and the more they are talked about. Here is a gallery of a few different types of products and it is pretty easy to see just by looking at these that they are NOT intended to be Cig-a-like.Click to view slideshow.
The images above vary from basic box Mod type vape to sci-fi creation, one thing is for sure on all of them though. They are not designed to mimic the look and feel of traditional tobacco or traditional tobacco rituals.
So they are different and one keeps the rituals of smoking burning tobacco, the other doesn’t but how important is that really?
Well let’s ask the experts from one of my favorite pieces of science on the electronic cigarette and vapor industries:
